bismah & danish: wedding

i first met bismah back in early summer 2010, when her older sister mahvish got in touch with me about doing family portraits. they are two of six children in one of the most beautiful families i've ever met, and thankfully they liked my portraits enough that they also brought me along for mahvish's wedding a couple of months later. so i was super excited to learn that bismah - who, along with her sister sehrish, make up a pair of jaw-droppingly gorgeous (and once you get to know them, utterly adorable) identical twins - was also engaged and planning on getting married in july 2011.i'm proud to say that through all these shoots, i can finally tell them apart from each other :) i have been truly blessed in all of my clients, but the way the ameens have made me feel like a part of their family is something special - being able to witness, capture and experience their kindness, good nature, happiness and above all their love for each other has been absolutely one of the best parts of my (it's hard to think of it as a) job. love these girls so much, and i'm so happy to see you happy, bismah! bismah wears hijab, but kept her hijab on for the course of the wedding so i'm sharing a bunch of these images - but keeping out images of other women at the wedding, including many family members, out of respect for their wishes of privacy. the wedding was held at martin's west in baltimore. also, some of the images shown below were shot by my second shooter, the ever-amazing jessica shepard - thank you once again for all your help!!
