Yesterday my fiancé and I did our engagement photo shoot with Mir of Mir Anwar Photography.
On a yacht 😀
The boat that we rented was actually docked at Humber Bay Shore – where SM proposed to me two years ago!
I had two outfits, this being one of them:
This suit is from Sania Maskatiya’s 2013 Lawn Prints, Summer Saphire Collection, that I bought when I was in Lahore this March. My mom was the one who suggested I wear it (“Don’t buy new dress; learn to save money”) so I tried it on and thought that it totally works. I liked that I got to profile how stylish something as simple and staple Pakistani Lawn wear has become with the silk dupatta, and the appliqués.
The designer lawn wear collections were all sold in a kit with the various pieces of fabric (the back is a different pattern than the front), the appliqués, and the dupatta, and you can get the tailor to sew it however you want. My cousin Safiya is a designer herself so I just took the kit to her place and told her I wanted to have it sewn exactly like the model is wearing it, and she matched it perfectly! This is the pic I took her from the catalogue (you can see the different fabric for the back):
I wore a simple stretchy chooridar legging that I picked up from Liberty market for 200 rps ($2!)
Summera of Summera Studios did my hair and makeup for the shoot. Since I had three different outfits of varying colours, we decided to stay neutral with the eyeshadows and do a pink lip. I think she did a great job of keeping the makeup fresh!
I’ll do a proper post all about the shoot, photography with Mir and share some shots from the session soon!
P.S. So this is fun: I sent Saniya Maskatiya my pic and they shared it on their Facebook page
