I can tell a lot about a couple and what to expect from their wedding based on my first few interactions with them. And from the day I met Olivia and Farhan, I knew their wedding wasn’t going to be anything short of beautiful. They are the most easy going and patient people, which made them wonderful clients!When we planned their engagement session, we decided to have the shoot at a cute, local  coffee shop. But when we got there, we realized the coffee shop had been closed and replaced by a different establishment! Can you imagine how stressful it would be to get to your engagement shoot and realize the location you had in mind no longer existed?? Instead of freaking out, they just went with the flow and trusted me to photograph them in the middle of the streets of downtown Houston! Their flexibility and trust made the entire experience less stressful for all of us. I knew then that no matter what curveballs their wedding day threw at them, they’d make the best of it. Fast forward 8 months, and it was finally time for their big day! Olivia is Hispanic and Farhan is south Asian, so they incorporated both cultures into their beautiful interracial weddings. They had a traditional ceremony where Olivia wore a romantic lace, almond-color dress and Farhan matched her in his crisp white tux.  During the reception, they changed into traditional Pakistani wedding attire, and they definitely rocked both looks. Their night was full of laughter and tears. They cut their stunning cake, watched their friends and family perform choreographed dances, and were even surprised with an adorable dance skit about how they met, which left Olivia in tears. Olivia and Farhan, if your wedding day is any indication of your future together, I know you’ll have a beautiful and happy marriage. Thank you letting me be a part of it.
