wajiha and awais: a dc love story

November 5, 2011 | Filed Under portraits 

we met at the gate to chinatown, and wajiha and awais were filled with stories about how each one had lived down the street that-a-way at one point, or used to study in that location. it was such a pleasure to do my first urban couple’s session with two people who knew this part of the city so well – and had such a clear emotional connection to the places we walked. plus – they are so much fun! and – stylish, gorgeous, smart… the list goes on. wajiha and awais, i had such a great time meeting you guys and photographing you too :) so here they are – chinatown, the national portrait gallery, and the streets in between…

    Nice! I really dig the effect of leaving the vignetting in the first shot. Different and it works.

    Loving this image set Ayesha. Wajiha & Awais looked like they were great fun to work with. That opening image has the ring of Warhol about it and everything that follows is great too.

    I love the shot of them sitting on the floor in front of the gold sculpture. What great colors, and a beautiful couple.
