Kelechi's Baby Shower

I had to document two events back to back yesterday: a baby shower in Jersey City, NJ and a 40th birthday celebration in New Brunswick, NJ. Event Photography can be a very physical occupation, so it's very exhausting. You have to be serious about taking care of yourself and eating right. I promised myself I would take one day off a week to rest and relax with family; I decided this because I was tired of going to work extremely tired. I got a chance to relax today and finally make a blog post. The pictures below are from Kelechi's baby shower in Jersey City, NJ. I had to add my own lighting as the lights in the wine cellar were kind of dim. Let me know what you think and do enjoy.

Alora's 1st Birthday Celebration

Alora, you make your parents proud mama, and they love you so much. I felt the energy and love that your parents, family and friends have for you. It truly takes a community to raise a child, and you have nothing short of that. Happy 1st birthday Alora. Wishing you many more healthy, happy and prosperous years to come.

Dr. Manzoor + Kubra Rizvi's 50th Wedding Anniversary

I documented Dr. Manzoor + Kubra Rizvi's 50th Wedding Anniversary today in Edison, NJ. It's amazing when you witness marriages that last 50 years or more. It's truly an honor to be entrusted with the task of documenting such a special day, and I wish you both many more happily married years to come.

VOICE Summit 2019

I documented the VOICE Summit taking place at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. The 2nd day of the event marked keynote speeches by David Isbitski of Amazon, Noelle Lacharite of Microsoft, Adam Cheyer Co-founder of Siri and Newark, NJ mayor Ras Baraka just to name a few. In addition, there were breakout sessions throughout the campus after the Keynote speeches in which speakers talked about their contributions to VOICE technology. Finally, all vendors that participated in the exhibitions had a chance to speak to people about their VOICE products.
