Nada & Mina
I always enjoy photographing Orthodox ceremonies, because they seem so ritualized and intricate. I had the opportunity recently to tag along with my good friend Jay Premack to photograph Nada and Mina's Coptic (Egyptian) Orthodox wedding. The incense, the chanting, the wardrobe...beautiful. Unfortunately, there was a bit of rain, and even with all the planning ahead it the world (which they did), there's not much of a substitute for being able to take pictures outside. Still, they soldiered on and kept a positive attitude. The night was capped off with a great live band playing Middle Eastern music at the reception. Very classy.
