JESSICA + FARAZ // DOWNTOWN COLUMBUS ARENA DISTRICT ENGAGEMENT SESSION

JESSICA & FARAZ' SPRING ENGAGEMENT SESSION // BRETT LOVES ELLE PHOTOGRAPHY. COLUMBUS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS


Jessica & Faraz were officially engaged on December 6, 2017 and have been together for the past two years. They'll be tying the knot this summer at the beautiful Irongate Equestrian Center. We cannot wait to capture their love this coming July -it's going to be an amazing celebration!  


THE PROPOSAL 

It was late at night, past my bed time- just the two of us. We had just got home from the gym and ate dinner. I was getting up to go to sleep but he beat me to it. He walked into the guest room and came out with a picture he drew and handed it to me. It was a drawing of me; he copied from his favorite picture he has of me, only I was wearing a ring. I questioned the ring because I knew it was not one I had. That is when he asked me. Completely out of the blue, I was not expecting it at all.

HOW THEY MET

We met at the hospital. I was in nursing school doing clinical and he was in his last year of residency. We did not go on our first date until 3 months after texting, non-stop, every day.

MY MOTHERS WEDDING DRESS...

I knew from the beginning I wanted to wear my moms wedding dress. I am wearing an indian dress for the wedding but have always wanted to incorporate her dress in some way. Faraz hates dressing up but I talked him into buying and wearing a suit for the pictures only- I knew this would be my one and only chance to see him in one. I also wanted to incorporate Indian outfits in our pictures as well. I bought a lehgena and Faraz wore a sharwani that he already had.

JESSICA'S ENGAGEMENT SESSION ADVICE

Dont stress-about anything. Brett and Elle make you feel so comfortable and they make it enjoyable. Taking pictures can sometimes be a drag but not with them. We laughed the whole time. I was worried about my clothes, posing, making sure I looked decent, everything a lady would worry about but once we started that all went away. Pick an outfit or two that you love and don’t worry about anything else. I was also glad we didn’t take a lot of props.

 
I did take a leather jacket that my finance’s sister made that says “Mrs. Ahmad” and the date of our wedding on it.
