Day 4: Vidai

This was a very emotional day, in many ways and ways I did not expect. Azmina’s father is an amazing man, a gem of a father who exemplifies parental love. On the final day there is a beautiful send-off, where the daughter leaves her home to walk a new path with her new husband, this is called the Vidai. She walks as she throws back rice  (The custom of throwing rice signifies that the bride is returning whatever her parents have given her in all these years as blessings and wishes for prosperity to always flourish in the house she is leaving behind). This ceremony was beautiful and at the same time very emotional to watch and to shoot, from the moment she touched the rice her tears started flowing and as she walked each step her father held her back as his tears came and her mother smiled with pride at her beautiful daughter  It was a moment where you knew he was right there along with her each step as she walked this new path. And it was beautiful. At the end we all cried, I mean that is no surprise. Everyone who knows me understands my passion for what I do and I think it was the first time I realized myself how much documenting people’s lives really empowers and fills my heart. Thank You Azmina & Faheem, for letting me be your photographer, for letting me share in your love and for reaffirming my commitment to what I do. For that, I will never forget you. Here are some of the images…I need a tissue now. xoxo
