  I can’t wait to photograph Umedjon and Nona’s wedding later this week in Dushanbe, Tajikistan. They met years ago when Nona worked here and have recently made the decision to tie their families together. Nona’s parents trusted their daughter and flew out of the US for the first time to be at the wedding. Umed’s family accepted Nona despite the non-traditional arrangement. It’s not everyday that you get to see a connection develop between two families from either side of the planet. These are amazing bonds that have brought everyone to this city.
