Love on the Fast Track

Houstonians Lisa Morgan and Jared Caplan tied the knot in Las Vegas, but the newlyweds wanted a proper bridal shoot set in their hometown. Up to the task, photographer Alefiya Akbarally of Weddings by Alefiya snapped several moody photos in the gritty Warehouse District on Downtown’s Northeast side,
“among moving trains, barking dogs and moving traffic,” she remembers. Couple and shooter were able to block it all out in the moment Akbarally captured a tender kiss as a massive freight train passed in the background. This juxtaposition is the backdrop for an unexpectedly romantic, urban portrait. Akbarally, a Sri Lankan native whose work also appears in magazines like our sister publication, Houston magazine, is no stranger to creating images that leave viewers curious.
