Your Love, Our Vision: South Asian Wedding Photography

 Chicago  |  New York |  California

Capturing the different layers of emotion and movement that reveal themselves during your special celebrations takes a trained eye and careful footing ... and, of course, capacity for wonder.

We’re there when you need us— to brush back your flyaways or to expertly arrange your heavy bridal lengha for portraits— and the rest of the time, we’ll be in and out of the crowds, finding and documenting the stories happening all around you, even the ones you aren’t there to see.  From your college friends reminiscing on the dance floor to your nieces and nephews sneaking kisses from their favorite aunts and uncles, it’s our delight to witness all of these hidden details that make up the exclusive story of your wedding and to catch them beautifully as they happen.

At Maha Studios, we let your relationships, traditions, and your love inspire the shots we take. We understand that where there’s risk, there’s a story, and we set out to capture yours with beauty and intention.


Sadiya + Asad

Founder and Principal Photographer of Maha Studios

"I’ve had the joy of celebrating and photographing over 300 weddings and each one has made a distinct mark on me."

There’s something magical about how we can honor the same traditions, the same hallowed commitments, and yet no wedding is just alike. Each couple, each family, and each community adds their own thread to the great tapestry of love that binds us all together. It’s catching the intimate moments— like when he steals a glance at you under the mandap or the tear on your father’s cheek when you make your final exit— that make me grateful that my lifelong love for art, travel, and culture serendipitously prepared me for the best job ever: photographing meaningful weddings like yours in sharp relief.

“I trusted her vision and she does amazing, inspired work”
