I had the great pleasure of photographing a Mehndi celebration for the sister of a good friend of mine, and her husband to be. This was part of a week long traditional Indian celebration leading up to their wedding day.
I have never been to such a spectacular celebration. The clothes were gorgeous, the music and poetry was beautiful, and the dancing was just amazing. Here are some of the images I was able to capture that evening.
I am seriously OBSESSED with Sophia's henna! I mean seriously, how GORGEOUS is this?!
They also had a fantastic artist there to give the guests their own henna. I was lucky enough to be able to get something on my hand as well.
This boy was so cute! I wanted to take him home with me! He read a poem to them, and he also had quite the moves on the dance floor.
The bride had some pretty fantastic moves herself! ...and really, how beautiful does she look? Just breath taking!
I am so glad to have been able to photograph this event for Sophia and Aditya. The tradition was really beautiful, and you can see how happy they are together. I wish them many wonderful years together.
**Also, special thanks to my partner in crime Rachael Leblanc for her help with this event. She is such a joy to work with! :)
