Off the topic

At times when we do not photograph weddings, Nasim and I like to keep creativity flowing or just give ourselves something to work on. It could be a small project, big project and most of all a fun project.

While I will post more images from this photo shoot, I wanted to share a glimpse with my readers.

Model: Tiffany
Hair and Makeup: Katya Dmitrenko



This post is dedicated to my dear friend Mary. My readers may not know what is going on but I want everyone to relate to my words without knowing the cause or without connecting it to any event.

Mary knows that I tend to mumble a lot and this time I decided to put my mumbling in here…

Hope is a sparkle… A sparkle that will lead us to salvation. Hope is still there when we wish that too much chocolate will not make us fat. Hope sometimes looks like a placebo… Hope is not an assumption, it is a magnet for positive energy…

Mary, my love for you is deep and my respect to you is endless. You are raising a beautiful family and have friends anyone would die to have. You have them, so there is no need for you to go anywhere.

You know I have a hard time gathering my thoughts in one place, and that darn Amy Vanderbilt book of ethics is lost in the mail. Watery eyes don’t help my cause much either… For what is worth, I love you and this post is dedicated to you alone!

HA! One more thing I forgot to tell you 🙂 I cut my hair short, just like yours. Can I show it to you soon? We are now CONNECTED!

Deana - I had tears in my eyes while reading your mumblings, Lola. Emotional lines, yet very sincere. Dear, Mary, you need to be strong than you were ever before. You can BEAT it and life is still simple if you stay optimistic. You will be in my prayers!

Miss D.

Back to work

After a long break (almost 5 months) I am slowly getting back to work. I am happy that I could dedicate this time to my family and our newborn baby girl Jasmine. I want to open up this season with a photo taken today. Let’s hope I will not get lost again! You never know.

Lola - Thank you, Phil!

Congratulations to Tara and Will

This is a little teaser from our last wedding for this season. I photographed this wedding while being almost 38 weeks pregnant and went into labor two days later! Tara and Will’s wedding was definitely a day to remember for so many great reason!
