This post is long over due.   I had the incredible pleasure of meeting Sheena’s mum first, Vijay.  She knew that we would be a good fit for her daughter and son-in-law Jon.  Shortly, after I met with Sheena, as she lives out of state.  We got along instantly.  We both share a love for old Bollywood hits.  Sheena especially loves Helen.  Over the course of two fun-filled weekends in November we captured some amazing memories celebrating Sheena and Jon’s new life together as Mr. & Mrs. Fitzsimmons.

Yesterday I was thoroughly touched when Sheena wrote this on my FaceBook wall “I just want to thank you Alefiya Akbarally for taking such magnificient shots and being so professional and friendly.  It really made my wedding celebration easier knowing you were behind the camera!” It’s times like this when you really do know that you have made the right choice in career.  

I also had the honor of working with some of Houston’s best wedding professionals, including the dynamic Therese Cole-Hubbs of Electric Karma.
