I went hunting for material, and my eyes were generally open to everything I saw being potential bridal gear. It seems like for a while I lived, ate, and breathed bridal hijab. I just had to get it right, I was so afraid of failing. Even after I had created my three looks, I was still uncertain if I had nailed it. Even though I was happy with how it turned out it seems that with people, and especially brides, they have a certain vision for their wedding day and I was not sure how my looks would appeal to the public. I had never ever attempted bridal before, this being the bane of my anxiety. In the end I was happy with what I had done and I hope you will be too.
Come shoot day, Razana and I discussed make up. She said to me, that she knows from experience that brides generally don't want too heavy make up. She started on make up while I tested the set up. Once she was done, I began on the first head gear. I must admit that while I wrapped I wondered to myself how I could have had so many months of self doubt. I personally experience a world wind of excitement and nervousness before any of my shoots and I believe it pushes me to always do my best. Therefore, I believe that anything that makes you nervous just pushes you to do and be better.
There you have it. Your thoughts and feed back are very welcome. It was a fun shoot with some awesome women. Thank you, Safeerah, Neelam and Mahbooba for doing this with Razana and I and a very special thank you to Razana for doing such an amazing job! If any of you are interested in me doing a bridal hijab or wedding photography for you or Razana to do your make up for any occasion feel free to contact us.
