22 Jan Reham & Abdullah
Where do I even begin? This engagement session was a photographer’s dream. From the beginning, Reham trusted me with choosing her outfits, the locations, and the timing. What else can a photographer ask for?? They were so fun and laid back that it made my job so easy. The first location we went to (Glassel School of Art) was pretty much just simple grey stairs. So of course she needed to be wearing a bold color. And that mustard yellow dress was the perfect choice for it. Shooting in harsh light is always a challenge. The stairs had very inconsistent light and shadows everywhere because it is indoors with glass window light around certain parts. And not to mention all the random strangers sitting scattered among the stairs who weren’t moving anytime soon. So it took a little bit of time to figure out all the right angles and position them properly, but they were so patient with me (thank you, R&A!!!). The photos came out a little bit different than my normal style but I absolutely love them. We then walked down the street and took some photos at Herman park. As you can see, the sun is glowing so perfectly in those images. Unfortunately, that gave us less time with their floral outfit so we rescheduled for part 2 of the session for the following week and I was so grateful our schedules worked out so well because not only was I get lucky to have fun with them once but now I get to photograph them twice! The second part of the session was even dreamier than first. I absolutely loved their matching floral outfit and was so glad we had a chance to do a cozy winter rooftop session. Obsessed is an understatement when it comes to these two. I think I had so much fun with them because they remind me of me and my husband. When Reham was describing how her and Abdullah met, she mentioned how he was a “shy kid” at first and she’s the social-hyper one and that pretty much sums up my relationship with Khaled. There’s so much love between these two and I pray that it only keeps growing. Reham and Abdullah-thank you so much for being so easy going and I can not wait til your wedding day!!
