Ryan and Nahal are such a great couple, beautiful inside and out! Nahal and I hit it off right from the start when we started talking on the phone, you know, when you get that feeling that you’ve known each other already for years. Her and I both felt that way. It was for that reason that her wedding was extra special to shoot and be part of, for both Collin and I.
Nahal’s mother is a famous singer in her native country of Iran. You could tell this family had had a lot of music in their lives; they danced a lot, played the piano and Nahal’s mother even sang to her daughter and Ryan during the evening party.
I’m so glad Ryan and Nahal found each other; they’re perfect for one another which I think is evident when looking at these pictures. Collin and I actually met Ryan and Nahal through Breana Nadal, a bride we had the pleasure of photographing for her wedding a year and half ago. She had in the meantime become the head coordinator at the Marriott Marina del Rey, and referred Ryan and Nahal to us. Leading up to the wedding day, we shot their engagement session in Laguna Beach and Nahal’s shower at Duke’s in Malibu. Both of these photo galleries got featured on the popular blog “Bridesmaids and Weddings”. (Link to the engagement feature – Link to the Bridal shower Feature)
