and now, the rest of the story. kamran and leila’s engagement photo session in san diego story that is. i can’t tell you how thrilled we were to work with kamran and leila. it was during our very first meeting with kamran and leila that they asked us if we had ever shot a persian wedding before. knowing this might be a very short meeting after my response, i said no, we had not. i then added confidently, “we would love to.”
i do not know why, but whatever the blessed reason, kamran and leila looked beyond our lack of experience with persian weddings and hired us to shoot their persian wedding in san diego. it would be our first, and it would be an amazing experience.
more on that soon. i’m puting the horse before the cart.
before we could do their wedding, we wanted to do a sweet engagement session for them, so bang, we hit the city baby, dead on! with the awesomeness of san diego at our disposal, our first stop was the aprapos House of Iran in Balboa Park.
kamran and leila, everyone. everyone, kamran and leila.
for fear of leila’s smoking hotness burning down the house, we didn’t stay by the house of iran too long.
moving on. cut. print. check the gate.
as much as i’d like to, i can’t take credit for kamran and leila’s fashions. when scheduling a photo session we tell all of our couples to simply wear something that’s you. then we remind them that they are not hannah montana or one of the power rangers :)
we love kamran and leila’s outfits. they go together without looking like they’re wearing uniforms, and the colors are awesome! project runway contestants, take note :)
anyone know what time it is?
don’t. cover this up. it’s not sexy. it’s ani-mal. :)
kamran picked the prettiest flower in the garden.
double-fierce bonus points for this one. they are… HOT! (said with emphasis on the T to drive home our point.)
for this part of the session we tried out our new telepathy recorder that we’ve been developing. it’s still in the r and d stages, but here’s what we were able to record from kamran’s mind during this sequence.
get out of my dreams…
my car. :)
as the moon was tucking mr sun in to bed we stopped at a bench on shelter island, the place where kamran asked leila to be his bride.
it was a beautiful ending to an awesome session.
the man in the moon is smiling, cause they’re in love.
thank you kamran and leila. we really enjoyed walking around some of our favorite spots in san diego with you and talking about your big day.
speaking of which…
