Back to slowly updating my blog. This one’s from when Dia and Jeremy tied the knot last winter in 2012. I visited them last week, and Dia now is over 4 months pregnant! Yay. So this long overdue blog post is a little tribute to their love, and to the awesome baby girl they will be raising together in Park Slope – and (if they’ll let us) with help from friends and family, myself included. Congratulations, D+J!
The photos, by the way – these two wanted a quiet, intimate ceremony, so we started out the day with Dia and Jeremy getting ready at their home in Park Slope. It was a cold rainy day and we were running late, but we managed to catch a few just outside their apartment. Then we hopped in a cab over to the Islamic Cultural Center on the Upper East Side, where we were joined by some of Dia’s family and good friends, since both of their families live mostly overseas. It was my first time photographing inside a mosque – a beautiful space, as you can see. And an equally lovely ceremony – although, as I remember, a band of interlopers in the form of a tour group got to witness it as well! “Same time tomorrow,” Jeremy joked with them afterwards.
Speaking of Jeremy and Dia’s signature sense of humor, I don’t know if you can see it but the form being filled out in the photos lists as Dia’s dowry one “Le Creuset Cooking Pot (Large).” You guys.
Seriously, though. Getting to witness and be a part of something like this is maybe the biggest perk of being a photographer.
Much love to you two. You three!
