Kansas City Islamic Wedding | Tanhita + Derek

Tanhita and Derek had an absolutely gorgeous two-day Kansas City Islamic wedding last weekend! The celebration began on Friday at the Ironhorse Golf Club in Leawood on Friday and concluded at the Overland Park Double Tree Hotel on Saturday.

This was my first traditional Islamic wedding, so I was so excited to experience a different culture! Tanhita looked absolutely stunning in her various gowns!

It was also fun to witness the infusion of different cultures, with Derek’s family being from Shanghai.

One of my goals for this wedding season is to really challenge myself when it comes to creativity during a wedding day. When the time came for our portrait session in Tanhita’s reception gown, it was completely dark outside so we decided to utilize an empty conference room. With strategic lighting, we were able to create some pretty epic portraits of these two. We turned out all the lights in the room and added a pink gel to my flash to really make the background fit the mood of their wedding instead of just looking like a boring hotel wall.
