I Dream of Genies: We Couple Up

Normally, in a Bengali wedding there isn’t a lot of time for couple’s portraits. Usually, the day has been jam packed with activities. Since Mr. Genie and I had already gotten married and there was no fear of seeing each other for the first time, I made sure to build in a cushion for couple’s portraits. When else would we be so decked out in Bengali clothing? I’m so glad I did! It was difficult to narrow down my favorites, but I grouped most of them together so that you can actually move on with your day.

Just a note, it was harder to smile with my teeth with all my head gear and faux nose ring. Every time, my ears or cheeks moved, or something came closer to falling off or did fall off. I was concerned that without my full smile I wouldn’t look genuine, but all of the pictures with closed lips are my favorite!

Coco had a brilliant idea to play with the veil for our pictures. These are some of my favorites because of how playful they are.

But then we got serious with the veil. Todd helped hold up the veil above us while Coco got down on the ground and snapped this beauty:

Mrs. Bracelet talked about how a parking lot may not seem like the likely place to take pictures, but let me tell you to trust your photographer! That’s how we got these:

These are my favorite pictures of the day and my favorite time of the day. The rest of the evening was a blur of people, but these portraits were just Mr. Genie and me with Coco and Todd, who were fantastic!

    So, so beautiful! My favorites are the veil photos! Especially the one of you covering your face and looking at Mr. Genie, you have the most perfect “get over here, Mr. Genie!” look!
