Benjamin + Nisreen | {Seattle Wedding Photography}

The beautiful wedding of Nisreen and Benjamin took place at the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center in Seattle. It was a beautiful venue for their special day, the morning started off with an overcast sky until the clouds parted and gave way to a beautiful blue sky just in time!

I was invited to shoot this wedding with my brother-in-law, Chris Koch. He’s a talented photographer in Tacoma, and was great to work with! We shared photo credit on all of our images, these are just a few that I took. Between our images, and having the talented Sara Huntley edit them, we ended up with so many beautiful photos. Sara is a good friend of the bride and groom, and was a great help to Chris and I throughout the busy day!

Wedding after wedding I’m always reassured how much I love to be a part of them in the way that I am. It’s such a beautiful and special time, and to be able to capture those moments is an incredible honor. Nisreen was stunning from beginning to end.

Some weddings are really laid back, some are more stressful, others are really fun, and others are more serious. Nisreen and Benjamin had the perfect combination of everything you’d want in a wedding. One of the most important aspects of weddings I’ve come to realize is the support of those immediately surrounding the bride and groom. It was great to see everyone come together for them, keep smiles on, and ensure that everything went smoothly.

You never really know what you’re going to get out of the bridesmaids and groomsmen come picture time, especially with such a large group, but they were a fun bunch! Everyone was just so excited the entire day!

This was probably one of my favorite images from the day. Nisreen had a lovely dress that complimented her so well.

I really loved the beautiful sunlight that was shining through! It was truly meant to be.

I just love when a bride and groom really enjoy their wedding, as we finished pictures and headed to their reception, they danced along the way. Too cute!

Thank you Nisreen, Benjamin, Sara, and Chris for having me apart of this gorgeous day! I had a really great time capturing these beautiful moments. It turned out to be a beautiful day that was undoubtedly meant for you. Congratulations on your wedding – cheers to forever!
