Pakistani Indian Wedding – Brooklyn NY, Edison NJ, and Mountain Lakes NJ

I had the pleasure of shooting a two-day Pakistani Indian Wedding the weekend after Hurricane Sandy Hit.  The Nikkah was held at the Turkish American Eyup Sultan Islamic Center in Brooklyn, NY. It was followed by the Mehndi at the Akbar Banquet Hall in Edison, NJ; and the next day they had their wedding reception at The Villa at Mountain Lakes in Mountain Lakes, NJ. Gas was in short supply and being rationed, and practically no one had power, but somehow they made it come all together for a truly enchanting weekend. This is the wedding of Khalid and Roham, a beautiful story of love in the aftermath.


“Heather was by far our favorite vendor during our wedding. Let me start by saying that our wedding took place just three days after Hurricane Sandy, and Heather managed to make it to all three of our events, all hours and states apart and with a lack of gas in the Tri-State area. She was on time to all the events, even when the bride and groom were late themselves! She took amazing shots of our ceremony and wedding day, images that our friends and family are still in awe over, and even National Geographic who has chosen to feature her image over and over again.

We had two photographers at the wedding, but I always recommend Heather to all of my friends. What I loved about her style the most was that she’s not afraid to get right in the thick of the action, mold you to get the perfect shot, and has a keen eye for lighting and scenery. My husband and I were clueless about how to pose, but she made us feel incredibly comfortable and guided us.

Lastly, Heather was always so warm with us, always smiling, which makes the world’s difference when you’re stressed out on your wedding day. She was such a joy to work with during our wedding and even after. We received the final edits a week later, and we could not have been happier with the pictures. Thank you so much for all your work, Heather!”
