Fahad and Mashal and their families are the kind of folks you’d pack your bag and travel halfway around the world to be with if they’d ask! Luckily, we only had to fly to Calgary to photograph their traditional week-long Pakistani wedding :-). Their warm hospitality (Punjabis woot woot!), amazing fun-loving personalities, and absolute trust in us made this one of the most memorable destination weddings I’ve had the honor of photographing.
I’m particularly proud of their images because I believe they reflect the balance I aim to achieve between 1) the creative documentary/photojournalistic style of coverage vs 2) artist-directed yet always intimate and meaningful couple’s portraits vs 3) the ‘traditional’ must-have shots of the families, guests, and various ceremonies. p.s. wait for the ring shot I monkeyed around with (at 3:28 in)!
Here for the first time, is their wedding highlights slideshow that played at their Toronto reception:
