1. Introduction: What's your story?

Mahdi Photography is a photography company in Issaquah, WA. As a passionate wedding and elopement photographer, I have over 8 years of experience in the industry and have photographed over 100 happy unions using a mix of portrait and candid styles.

I am a classically trained professional portrait photographer. I believe everyone is beautiful, families can last forever and memories should last just as long.

I encourage everyone to be themselves and embrace their inner beauty. My goal is to capture the best of you and capture your legacy for your loved ones. I am honored to spend time with you and look forward to building long-lasting friendships.

Many of my portraits have been published in photo magazines in America. I have also had the opportunity to work with clients such as Microsoft, HTC, Seattle Mariners, etc.

As a full-service photographer, I only shoot one wedding a day to give you the time and attention you deserve. I love national and international travel, so I am available for destination weddings all over the world. I take a streamlined, fun and relaxed approach to capturing your special day from start to finish. I prefer candid shots to posed shots and check in with you a month before your wedding to make sure we're on the same page.

Last but not least, BIG CONGRATS on your engagement, and CHEERS to the wedding planning!

Don't stress, be excited, and let's make this day one of your dreams!
