I had such a great time photographing Hibah & Owais’s walima wedding reception that took place at the Overland Park Marriott on March 31st! Owais & I actually went to school together when we were children and I was so happy to hear that he was getting married!
Hibah and Owais met through mutual friends and really hit it off when they realized that they had so many similar life experiences and stories in common that it was shocking! They mesh really well together and their favorite thing to do is to watch movies and eat pancakes!
This was a traditional Muslim Pakistani wedding reception. The walima wedding reception was perfectly set up with many guests and loved ones surrounding them. The room was filled with laughter as Owais’s friends joked and played a game of wedding jeopardy. The night ended with all the guests getting up and dancing dabke (traditional Arabic dance)! It was definitely a fun wedding to to photograph & I wish Owais & Hibah a lifetime of love and happiness!
Here are some fantastic rave reviews by this couple:
“Mariam is the most sweetest and patient photographer I had the pleasure of working with! Not only did she capture my wedding absolutely breathtakingly, she was so much fun to work with. Mariam, thank you for your energy, and making my special day into lifelong memories!”
