Simply the best!
Yasmin photographed our wedding in August 2019. She was recommended by our coordinator and also happened to shoot some weddings of friends whose photos I loved. She is an amazingly talented photographer and such a wonderful person….the kind you’d want to be around on your wedding day. She was so unassuming which meant our photos captured all the true emotions of our day. She also had an amazing energy and was so good about staying on time and checking in with appropriate vendors when needed….at one point she even managed to track down a granola bar for me when I said I was hungry 😊 Neither I nor my husband consider ourselves “naturals” in front of the camera…in fact it gives us a little anxiety. Yasmin is so good about giving guidance, and we were so thrilled with how all of our photos turned out. After many rescheduled attempts due to weather, we also did our engagement session with Yasmin which was such a nice time to get to know her and get comfortable in front of the camera before the wedding day. What we loved about her photos is that she has a very natural approach. Even our portraits didn’t look super staged or posed. Finding a photographer was by far one of the more stressful wedding tasks-- there are so many to choose from that all have such different styles. What we ultimately loved about Yasmin's work is that her photos are so joyful and timeless…not “moody” or heavily filtered. She is well worth the investment and then some. I’d also recommend springing for the second shooter even if you have a smaller wedding (ours was only around 130). It was so nice to have candid photos of our guests that were taken while we were doing portraits. It also meant that we got a whopping 1,500+ photos. A testament to how awesome she is was the fact that Yasmin was thoughtful enough to send us our wedding photos the day of our one month anniversary…I hadn’t expected to have them for a few months! I don’t have enough good things to say about Yasmin. I hope she can capture special moments for us in the years to come!Sent on 11/04/2019

The Best Wedding Photographer in Portland
When we first met Yasmin, we were taken by her eyes, her warmth, and we’d be remiss to not mention her white sweater with a knit flower stitched into! She imbued such love and positive energy into our first conversation, we left our consultation with her saying, “She will make our families want to smile.”Sent on 12/01/2018
So naturally, when the date arrived, we were more than thrilled to have Yasmin and her team capture the intimate moments--the first look, the drive to the reception, some kissy shots on the street, and then delighted to have her at the helm, getting all of our neurotic relatives to compose themselves for the group shots. Her work does speak for itself: It’s gorgeous when it is staged, and it is thrillingly alive when it’s candid. And also gorgeous when candid, and thrillingly alive when staged.
But Yasmin Khalani shoots with love. And as we have flipped through the photos of that special day, we are so grateful for Yasmin’s her craft, talent, and guidance during our wedding day.
What’s more--as invisible as she was as our photographer, her enthusiasm made it feel like she was just another one of our close friends, snapping a shot at our party.
It’s a special thing when you can look back at your wedding album and smile, not just because the pictures are gorgeous, and your happy to spend the rest of your life with your partner, but because you know this pictures of love, were taken with love.
We cannot recommend Yasmin Khalani more, and also, we highly recommend her sweater choice.
Great staff, great service, gorgeous photos!
