Arabic Wedding Reception! Brooklyn, New York Wedding Photographer

I had such a new, interesting and fun experience during this great party. The wedding ceremony was held at an earlier date and I was called in to photograph the women's wedding reception while the men's wedding reception was going on downstairs. It was very different for me as I could not photograph anyone but the bride and groom and only certain parts of the party. It was hard holding back but taking in the festivities made up for it. Once all the men left the women were able to take off their black coverings which is called a hijab. There were so many pretty and colorful dresses popping out everywhere as they got ready to dance and party the night away.

Though I cannot share much I would like to share the bride's beautiful henna.
