The groomsmen!

We've been bingeing old seasons of The Great British Bake-Off (it's still so fun to watch even though I know who wins!), and I've got cake on the brain. This beautiful cake display was such a fun collaboration between amazing vendors!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

One of our gorgeous brides for this shoot wrote these vows with her long-time girlfriend, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't get a little misty while I was writing them.

As a hopeless romantic, one of the best parts about being a calligrapher is writing the most special, carefully chosen words for wedding vows, anniversary gifts and other special mementos to capture your love. 💌😭

I always try to separate some time on a wedding day to get a few photos of just the bride walking around with her bouquet, and if you are wearing a veil -letting it blow in the sun, and it's usually the first thing I want to edit when I get home :)​​​​​​​​

One of my favorite bridal party photos to date -black tuxes make for the most sharp and timeless looks, and I loved the varying bridesmaids dresses for dimension -too! ​​​​​​​​

Ana's details were so beautiful, I loved that she added a few special things to them. Adding vow books is a great way to up the visuals of your wedding day, she also had her wedding venue drawn by a vendor she found on Etsy, and it really helped tell the visual story of her and Chris's wedding day. She also had extra florals for me to incorporate -it's all of these little things make for the best photos! ​​​​​​​​

Nayke and Veronica got married at 8am at the DC War Memorial, and then went out for pancakes and mimosa's after! Shel also she wore her mother's wedding dress that was handmade in Mexico! I love when couples like these two make their day entirely their own, what feels right to them. ​​​​​​​​

One of my favorite parts of a wedding day is seeing the bride in the morning in her getting ready space. I love capturing the hustle and bustle of getting ready, and also -I'm usually the first person to see the wedding dress on her wedding day, and I get to take a million photos of it :) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Carey and Nathan, taking a few moments to walk the gardens together on their wedding day, was one of my favorite things to document. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Love Ana's bouquet created by the wonderful @scentsationalfloraldesigns and a huge shootout to all of the amazing florists I have worked with this year! Florals are probably the biggest staple when it comes to beautiful wedding day photos, and I am so grateful for all that goes into the making of them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Unpopular opinion: I actually love photographing bride and groom photos in direct sun -it makes for the best colors, like these purple flowers at Chatham Manor. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

About

I’m Samia, and I have photographed over 100 weddings, and have been recognized in newspapers and online blogs such as The Knot, Borrowed and Blue, The Breeze, and Study Breaks magazine.
You should know that on a deserted island I would probably die if they didn’t have iced chai tea lattes, thrift stores, or books. I don’t alwayssss make my bed, and I would watch Pretty Woman or Steel Magnolias a thousand times in a row.

BUT if I could only tell you one thing about what working with what my team looks like, I would tell you about my heart. I would tell you that I care so much. I understand that you are planning the the most important day of your life, and documenting it exactly right is the most important thing in mine.

I’ve made it my life’s goal to be a creative, and to serve people like you. I’m here not just to take your engagement and wedding photos, but to help you understand why you need them, and how to get the most out of them. I’m here to make this experience unique to you. I’m here to help your grandchildren understand who you are and what you stood for; when they look at your photos.

I believe deeply in candid moments, teamwork, and trust. And that magic happens somewhere in between all three.

So if you’re ready to tell me all about you and all that you envision, well, it’s my favorite topic.
