May & Ahmad

I met May when I was in my first year of university, I remember thinking how similar our upbringing is and whenever we spoke about family, and what we value, I always found myself in everything she spoke about. When I got engaged, May shortly got engaged after me. So again, I found myself going to her to tell her about everything from wedding planning, to more importantly, the plethora of feelings that you go through when you're in that process because she was going through the same whirlwind as well. Friendship can be funny sometimes, being in it, you experience life and you keep going without pausing and really evaluating what it all means to you. Then May spoke to me about possibly having a shoot with Ahmad, after the shoot, I was looking through the photos and I felt ridiculously overwhelmed. The shoot provided me with opportunity to have a moment to pause, remember everything this gorgeous lady has gone through and see her in love with someone who makes her happy. I was able to evaluate all the bits and pieces that came together to this moment and I felt so grateful that I got to be part of that journey, just as I am grateful that she was part of mine. 

So, goes without saying, these photos are dear to my heart and I hope you enjoy x
