Gorgeous Downtown Seattle Engagement Session

This recent e-session came across my Instagram feed a couple weeks back which, in a true moment of serendipity, gave me the opportunity to connect with the local photographers at Basra Photography. Mani and Sunny are the talented team behind these gorgeous engagement pictures. If you want to check out some more of their work capturing weddings and other life events, go check them out on their website

Now, let's talk about the couple on the other side of the camera. Meet Faridah and Nader. These two are entirely too photogenic, and they are set to be wed next summer. To announce and celebrate their engagement, they dressed up and shimmied down to the Seattle waterfront for a fun and memorable photo shoot that will surely make for some amazing memories years down the road. 

Faridah shared that the engagement photo session was held at the waterfront near Seattle's Great Wheel. She told us that there was actually a field trip happening at the same time as their photo shoot, so they kept getting interrupted by little kids asking what they were up to! What a fun way to remember this special day :)

Her gorgeous outfit was found at a mystery shop up in Surrey, BC. (If you haven’t been yet, make it a point to visit the Payal Business Center for the best wedding trousseau shopping this side of California.) Her jewelry was purchased from Aakarshan, also found in the Payal Business Center.

Faridah’s hair and makeup was done by Makeup by Sisters (who you can learn more about in the HappyShaadi Vendor Guide).

Back to those photos, Faridah said that Basra photography did a great job especially considering that her fiancĂ© and her are currently navigating the difficulties of a long distance relationship. She said with him living in Michigan, they don’t get to spend that much time together, but Mani and Sunny did an amazing job making them feel comfortable and snapping some amazing shots that the couple will surely cherish forever!

Thanks Faridah and Nader (and Basra Photography) for sharing your lovely engagement photos with us! Congrats on your engagement and very best wishes for your wedding!
