Welcome to Nilo Burke Photography. My name is Nilo, and I am pleased to welcome you to my site. Please stay a little while longer and take a look around. I would love to learn about you and your upcoming special event so that I can understand your vision and, hopefully, capture it for you.
Friends, welcome to Nadia and Abrar’s Henna Celebration blog.
When I met Nadia at her venue to chat about her Henna and wedding celebrations, she was smiling from ear to ear! As she went around the venue talking to vendors about the details of both of her celebrations and touching basis with her planner, Chelsea Cottle Moring of Illumination Events Studio, I followed her and listened to all the detailed and how it would impact photography.
To say that Nadia was excited is an understatement. You didn’t have to follow her to know where she was. You just had to follow the sound of laughter to find her. That’s her most endearing characteristic. She brings joy to a room-any room. As you are enjoying the portraits from Nadia’s Henna celebration, one thing will stand out undoubtedly: the joy on her and Abrar’s faces.
Nadia and Abrar’s family and friends joined them for a beautiful night of henna application, singing folk songs, dancing to Bollywood music, and enjoying delicious Pakistani and Indian food. One thing that was important to Nadia and Abrar was capturing family portraits and portraits of their friends dancing on the stage. The couple didn’t miss out on the fun at all. They joined their friends on stage and danced to their heart’s content and to the cheers of their loved ones who watched them with delight with cell phone cameras in hand.
Nadia is from Karachi, Pakistan and Abrar is from Mumbai, India. Most of Abrar’s family didn’t make it to the celebration from India, so the couple had the clever idea of streaming their event live to folks in India so they could join them on their special occasion.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it was an absolute pleasure to photograph these two beautiful souls in love!
