Recently Yasmeen and Homam reached out to us about taking their wedding pictures. Unlike most of the couples that contact us they were already married! As they approached on their one year anniversary they did't have any wedding portraits, but it's definitely not for lack of trying. It rained on their wedding day and so they decided to reschedule them to the next day. It rained the next day. They rescheduled a few other times and it kept on raining! Meanwhile their actual wedding photographer moved away (maybe because it rains too much in DC?? Maybe DC is the new Seattle).
As this past Saturday approached it looked like rain was going to strike again and we had some talks of canceling. I had a feeling though that this was it, and that we were going to finally break the cycle of frustration so we encouraged Yasmeen and Homam to keep the session and the hair and makeup appointments.
It didn't rain once.
This was unlike any other portrait session we've ever done. We were beyond excited to have time with a couple to celebrate their wedding without the stress of the day itself, and all of the time pressures that go with it. The result was something completely unique and perfect. We were able to enter into the celebration of Yasmeen and Homam's marriage: the joy, the laughter, the tears, and the hope for so many more amazing years to come. It was an awesome experience and we are so thankful that we were invited to be apart of it.
