We’re on to day 2, the Shaadi. Day 1 was just the warmup!
4 days of shooting (we had another wedding this weekend as well) was too much for Malarie, as she works with me in addition to having her own demanding career, (love ya wifey!) so I was lucky enough to have a friend and a fabulously talented fellow photographer Ari join forces with me. Thanks dude!
One of my favorites of the day:
Next 2 shots of Mohsin are Ari’s:
Only had a few minutes for portraits, and had to keep them hidden from the guests, but we made those minutes count!

Another one of my favorites of the day.
The dancing was krazy! I love the energy of Pakistani weddings!
They were spinning around like you used to do on rollerskates as a kid “cracking the whip” style. I was shooting this at 16mm, so you can imagine how close to the action I was! Glad to have lived to shoot another day.
Did I mention I loved shooting their dancing? Such elation on their faces! Another personal favorite.
This guy does a thing where he spins as fast as he can until he can barely stand and people have to hold him up. I think it’s kind of his thing. He did it all three nights, and everyone knew to clear out and make room!
