I know they already have a million 5 star reviews, but here is one more, and very much deserved. I didn't actually choose Kismis Ink, my wedding planner chose them for me, but I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. Mariana and her husband were so personable and fun, they made everyone feel comfortable during photos. In fact, they made us all feel like super models, which was nice! The pictures came out great and they had an excellent turn around time as well, much faster than I expected! I am so happy my wedding planner chose them, I couldn't be happier with the way my wedding day turned out. I highly recommend Kismis Ink for your wedding, they do a phenomenal job, are very professional, and they do destination weddings, too!
Thank you, Mariana and Khaled!

Mariana and Khaled are the dream team. I can't say enough great things about their work ethic, wonderful personalities, and their quality of work. We had our engagement session and wedding photos taken by Kismis Ink Photography and we were blown away by the photos that they captured. If you're looking for photographers that are passionate and fun to work with, I completely recommend Kismis Ink Photography. You can trust that they will capture those unforgettable moments and their professionalism is outstanding.

We LOVE Mariana and Khaled! From the beginning, when we met them at Cafe TuTu Tango for dinner and drinks to get to know them, to our wedding day, we were over-the-top impressed with EVERYTHING! We felt so comfortable when they were photographing us, which is important! They made a connection with us from the very beginning, so much so that we wish they lived in Orlando so we could hang out more often :) Their pictures speak volumes, and their work ethic does too!

I found Kismis Ink through weddingwire and therefore to help future brides I will write in here to highly recommend Mariana and Khaled as your photographers. They were on the pricier side of all the photographers we had looked at, but well worth it. What drew me to them were not only their gorgeous photos on their website but also the fact that their images portrayed emotion and a story. Also loved the multi-cultural husband-wife team since my husband and I are one too. They photographed our engagement session and did it within a week of us asking during the holiday season. They made us so comfortable in front of the camera and we were so happy to also be part of their new website launch (made us feel like we got a few seconds of fame as the website flash changes). The wedding pics were returned to us so quickly (within 2 months of the wedding) and so many lovely images! We will definitely be treasuring them for years to come and we feel like we have new friends throughout this whole process :)

Wow, wow, wow, wow…. I’m sorry did I mention WOW!!!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!!! My guests were so impressed by how prepared, friendly, charismatic and PROFESSIONAL they were that they couldn’t stop telling me about how much they LOVED our photographers!! Mariana and Khaled are truly a blessing in life. One of Mariana’s bags got lost in the airline and she STILL had all of the equipment she needed!! We also had a family photo shoot on the beach the day before the wedding and we lost light because it started become night and the sun faded quicker than we thought it would. On top of that, my family was SUPER late to the photo shoot. Mariana and Khaled not only didn’t complain ONCE, but they laughed and joked with us and made the best of EVERYTHING. They convinced my family to do the shoot in the dark and for ONCE, I didn’t have to be the mediator or the coordinator or ANYTHING. It felt AMAZING!!! I was off the hook and they took care of EVERYTHING. I wish they planned weddings because I would’ve had a better vacation if THEY were our planners as well!! I hope to work with them for all our life events… I can’t say enough about how wonderful they are. My friend is getting married in July and is changing her photographer to Kismis Ink because her and her fiancé were so impressed.

From the moment I discovered their stunning photography to my initial meeting with Mariana, I knew Kismis Ink would be the photographers who would capture my most prized moments. Mariana has a smile to brighten even the gloomiest of days and her husband Khaled is exceptional at getting the shots you never knew existed. An amazing husband and wife team, Kismis Ink truly made us feel special from their emails to questionnaires, always asking about my family, & sharing their excitement about capturing our wedding day. Kismis Ink notices the details.. and captures them brilliantly!

I can't say enough about Mariana and Khaled's work - breathtaking, timeless, true pieces of art. They provide more than just photos...they capture memories.
We were on a budget, and truly didn't think we could afford such high-quality photos like Kismis. They worked with our budget and made us feel like we were just as important and respected as the rest of their clients (some who may have booked triple the services we did!); I just didn't find that level of customer services with other photographers. And the best part about Kismis? You get a fantastic Husband & Wife team who love each other and work well together - they have patience and flexibility that allows them to capture unique moments and integrate each of their ideas.
Mariana & Khaled spent a solid 9+ hours with us on our big day, and they got to work RIGHT AWAY, taking pictures of every little detail they came across - unlike other photographers I've seen at weddings who wander around and wait for directions. Khaled hung with the boys getting ready, and Mariana was with the girls, so both sides were able to be captured seamlessly. During the reception, they were always around snapping shots and I truly don't think they missed a thing.
Don't hesitate or question your photography any longer - BOOK KISMIS!

Mariana and Khaled were outstanding! I can not say enough about their professionalism, they also made me feel as if our wedding was their only wedding and top priority. I also did a private shoot for my husband as a wedding gift and Mariana made me feel more than comfortable, we had a blast and not to mention how liberating it was! They stayed over the allotted time that was in the contract without a problem, my guest loved them and didn't feel like the paparazzi was there.
I do photography as a hobby, Mariana did not take offense and welcomed my ideas and suggestions, she was fantastic to work with! Mariana and Khaled both worked well with my other vendors as well. If I had it all over again Kismis would be my first phone call, they are our new family photographer! 10 STARS!!! We can't wait to see more of our wedding pictures!!!

From the start they were so responsive and friendly and we clicked. We Skyped and Facebooked and talked on the phone and we talked about my vision for my wedding and they loved it just as much as I did. They understood my craziness and completely got me and my vision for my wedding. If I had a question they were right there when I needed them and when the day came, I didn't even need to ask, they knew what I wanted and I trusted them completely. Both of them were there and didn't miss a beat. They covered everything and I didn't have to worry about them missing anything. The images they took were sooo amazing! From the shot of our big kiss down to the teacup the ring bearer was to carry, they captured it artistically and beautifully. Not to mention that when we got our wedding album I was speechless. The images were sooo clear and crisp and such amazing quality. And I cant put it down. I thought it would be nice but I didn't image it was going to look this amazing and high quality! It has become my pride and joy. Being a photographer myself I had high standards and I knew just what I wanted and they blew it out of the water! The photos were very sharp and high quality and full of color and they captured my Alice in Wonderland Fairytale Wedding perfectly. I want to get married again just so I can hire them again!!! Everyone should hire them because they are wonderful people and they do extraordinary work!! Love them!

We Loved working with Kismis Ink Photography!! Mariana & Khaled are amazing at everything they do and very easy to work with. When I first called Mariana to get information on her wedding packages and she answered her phone all it took was a few minutes to know they were going to be our photographers. From that day on they stayed on top of everything that had to do with our wedding, which meant a lot to me. They helped me with so much, even with stuff that had nothing to do with photography... yes, that's how good they are. Every week I would get ideas and help links from Mariana to help me with my wedding planning.
As part of our wedding package they offered an engagement session so that we could get to know them, and get to feel comfortable in front of the camera. We had the most amazing time taking pictures and they made us feel very comfortable. So My husband doesn't like to take pictures but they made feel comfortable enough that he was posing, laughing and enjoying every minute of it. The engagement pictures are gorgeous and we have received so many compliments on the images. We also got a 16x20 Canvas Picture from our engagement session in our package, It looks amazing and vivid.
On our wedding day Mariana & Khaled were with us every step of the way. Mariana was with me and the girls while we were getting ready and Khaled was with my husband and the guys. They captured the essence of our special day including every little detail. Our wedding guests talked about how great this couple worked together and how easy going they were.
I have to say we have some AMAZING Photos, everyone that sees them tell us they look like they belong in a magazine. I would highly recommend Kismis Ink Photography to all of my family and friends. Khaled and Mariana started out as our photographers, and have become good friends of ours. If I could give them more than five stars I would!!!
