Lauren & Joey always have shared a love for wine so it was a no brainer to get married in a vineyard. In the outskirts of Chicago, they found their dream venue and got married on the most beautiful (and not-so hot) day in June surrounded by their families and friends.

Cindy and Ivan come from two different cultures where family plays a big part. Having a guest list of over 300, they booked out Pazzo's at 311 for their reception hall. They even hired a traditional Jordanian band for their grand entrance! And because Cindy works as a producer for McDonald's, it was only fitting to have McD's for their late night snack.

Yasmin is dream to work with. She is so genuine, sweet, and so easy to work and get along with. She made our experience from the beginning very fun, and easy as possible. We are so fortunate to find her, and she is the best decision we made for our wedding. Yasmin went above and beyond what we planned and expected. She made our wedding day extra special, and it became an unforgettable once in lifetime experience. We absolutely love and beyond thrilled by how our wedding photos turned out, and can’t wait to see the rest of them. We got endless compliments from friends, friends of friends, and families. I have been non-stop telling everyone about Yasmin. She is so amazing and perfect!
Where is the 10 stars option?

She’s more than just a photographer, she truly becomes your friend and maybe a low-key wedding planner! Yasmín is sooo easy to work with! My now husband and I were a little shy and awkward when it came to posing for engagement pictures yet she made it so easy and fun! The pictures speak for itself! Out of all my wedding vendors, she was truly my favorite. I pretty much had a friend take my pictures on the most important day of my life. Truly, from the bottom of my heart, she’s an awesome photographer and a even better human being! Now the negative because we all have to be honest and raw is that I have to share her with all of you. Hehe -you’ll love her! I promise!
" I always felt as if I were her only customer because that’s how much she invests her time and dedication in each one of us."

I wanted to make sure I had my dream team that could handle anything on my wedding day. I searched for a local photographer and could not find anyone I loved. It was 5 months before my wedding and I still did not have a photographer. After talking to Yasmin, I knew she was the perfect photographer. I wanted outdoor photos and it rained, by looking at my wedding photos you would never know that this was a back up plan. Since my wedding is now over I am able to say that I had an incredible photographer and I also made a friend for life.
"Yasmin is calm, able to handle your in-laws and so fun to be around."
megan & chris
It is obvious she is not just a big company trying to making a buck, but a small bushiness with a passion for photography who takes her work very seriously. She showed up exactly when she said she would and stayed until she was sure she had all the pictures she needed. She was very accommodating and knew exactly how to pose us, we are by no means models and pretty camera shy. She had such a quick turn around and our pictures turned out absolutely gorgeous.
"Yasmin is so professional and genuinely cares about her work and making your day special."
jerrielyn & eric
Since my husband and I decided to only have a photographer at our wedding, we knew we had to hire the best of the best. From the beginning to the end of our journey and now, Yasmin was there with a question, answer, suggestion, advice, and everything in between. Her ability to capture true emotions and tell a story through her photos was the exact reason why I was so happy with our decision of having her as our photographer. I have gotten non stop compliments on our photos as well, and it's been almost 3 months after! Not only did I find our go to photographer, but we made a life long friend. Thank you for everything Yasmin and keep slaying! :)

She made a couple who had never done anything close to a professional photo shoot feel SO comfortable and made it such a FUN experience for us! Yasmin’s attention to detail is incredible. She was in constant communication with us throughout the wedding planning process (meeting in person, Skyping, messaging, etc.). Yasmin was always early and prepared. She did an incredible job of taking control of the large group and getting the most beautiful photos taken. The light and airiness of our pictures truly capture the feel of our wedding day.
"I cannot thank Yasmin enough for our incredible pictures."
kelsey & kyle
Throughout our time together, meetings and photoshoots felt more like hanging out with old friends than business transactions. Yasmin were able to handle our huge crazy families and bridal party! Our photos are absolutely gorgeous and I don’t think anyone could have helped capture our love story more perfectly. Hats off to Yasmin! Cheers!
"we knew right then and there that she would be “our people.”
