This is a special session because it’s not only a reflection of this adorable couple and their journey with me for 5 years but a look at me as a photographer and how I have grown as well. It’s very humbling when I have clients that continue to use my services after so many years. I remember when they first contacted me for a chat and instantly we clicked. From there it was just me helping them document their love story and I am happy to see that nothing about them has changed over time. They are just as sweet and sincere. Thank you Isabel and Abner for always trusting me to capture these moments for you.
Witnessing their Muslim/Indian Ceremony I got to know how much love surrounded these two incredible people. Alla and Fayad were just down-to-earth and cared so much about their families, it was amazing to see. During the entire wedding day, there were many surprises and special tributes to Fayad’s parents, brother, and even a special send-off to Alla at the end of the night. Here are some of my favorite moments throughout the day:
Caught Fayad putting the final touches…his Pokeball cuffs!Not all heroes wear capes…some wear awesome t-shirts underneath their tux!Details of the veil and dress. Always awesome when the bride thinks about all her bridesmaid, look at the custom embroidered robes.The beautiful bridal party The final touches.A quick portrait while waiting for the bride to come out for a first look.A perfect setting for a first look. THOSE CLOUDS ARE SO PICTURESQUE.From the line of clouds, to the beautiful view everything makes this perfect for them to practice their first dance. 🎶This long expansive pier became the perfect background for Alla and Fayad…🔥🔥🔥Always love a classic portrait.Love candid moments right before a kiss…my favorite.Framed it. 😉Everyone enjoying the sun…may have been just a little too hot. Fayad’s adorable parents just being themselves. #relationshipgoals I think this explains it all.The ladies made my job easy…look at their amazing poses!I don’t think that’s the right way to open an umbrella during the ceremony… The mothers.To get this shot, I had to run behind the gazebo…tip toe and shoot perfectly through the bushes to catch Alla’s reaction. I am glad I did. Whoot whoot, Congratulations!Chilling with the crew.A performance from Alla and Fayad for their first dance.When someone’s got you up in the air and you can’t stop smiling.

One of them was Fayad finding the song that his parent’s danced to many years ago.Then later, Fayad continues by surprising his brother and sister-in-law with a song and dance. Last but not least…we stayed up the very end so they can step outside and Fayad can surprise his wife with a Rolls Royce send-off. We couldn’t leave without getting some amazing shots in and outside this beauty. From Michele and myself, we thank you for entrusting us on this amazing day.
