Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of photographing Noreen and JJ's Katb el-Kitab, which is the signing of the Islamic marriage contract, at the Apex Mosque. This religious ceremony takes place before their official marriage, which will take place next year. At this time, the bride and groom pledge to take on certain responsibilities towards one another in accordance to the teachings of Islam. Noreen's family flew from Egypt to be in attendance. Noreen is like a little sister to me, and I am so happy to be the one documenting these special events in her and JJ's life. I cannot wait until their next ceremony! Congratulations on this first step of your married life!
