Rishima’s Mehndi ceremony was a first for us. Aside from a few Google searches and Youtube clips that gave us an overview of what we might expect, we’d never seen anything like this.

But what a peaceful and beautiful way to do things. We went to Rishima’s (the bride to be) home out in Richmond, and there was a real family vibe going on. Incredibly spicy, heart-burn inducing food, great tunes, the bride’s family, the groom’s family and, of course, the amazing Mehndi art that was going on made entire experience awesome to be there for.

So, our first Mehndi experience. First of many we’re hoping.

    Honestly, that's the most beautiful henna art I've ever seen and I've never seen it photographed quite like this andddd I love it.

    I love that henna, especially how the detail emerges into a portrait. Fantastic framing and scene-setting as always; you're always thinking outside the box and I love it, such as with the afro'ed portait with the symmetrical OOF girls.

    Nessa's right - that's some of the most amazing henna work ever, and you captured it really beautifully!
