mr. and mrs. shayya {the wedding}

I am so excited that wedding season has started to kick off for this year. There was no better way to start it out than with the sweet and beautiful couple Luay and Särä. It has been such a true pleasure getting to know this couple. They share such a deep love for one another and have such a way of making everyone around them (including me) smile.

Congratulations guys! It has been an honor and a joy to capture your love. I hope that you enjoy this little peek at your wedding photos.

Have I ever told all of you how much I love the "first look" photos? I could tell you hundreds of times again and it still would not be enough.

Here is my shot of Luay's face when he first saw his bride.

....and Nathan's shot of the beaming Särä.

Särä, you are a knock out! Seriously girl!

This next one might be my favorite shot of the day.

The lovely ladies.

......and the studly gentlemen.

Nathan captured this image of Särä's Dad giving her a kiss as he was giving her away. So special.

The blessing.

Luay and Särä have this intimate and sweet way of communicating with one another. You don't have to be around them for long to realize that they bring out the best in each other. Just look at Sara's little smile that she is tossing in the direction of her groom during the ceremony.
