I met Leyla and her family a few years ago through my best friend’s family. Over various dinner gatherings over recent years, it was only small conversations between Leyla and her family and myself, but a few weeks ago, Dan and I got to spend some time with Lelya and her husband Ali.
Leyla and Ali got married in Iran nearly two years ago. Not having any professional photos taken during that time, they felt that now was a good time for them to finally get some done. They flew in from Toronto for her brother’s wedding in Vancouver just a few weeks ago, and so we schedule their Epic Session while they were here.
It was interesting hanging out with Leyla and Ali. Both are quiet and shy people, but through their timidness, we were able to see that they both had a great sense of humour. We appreciated that they were up for the things we asked them to do, and we asked them to do lots of goofy things!
It was no doubt a long day for us all, dealing with lots of traffic between locations, but it was a lot of fun. Leyla and her younger sister, Marjan, got hair and make up done at Flaunt Hair Salon. Thank you to Marjan for helping out on Leyla and Ali’s end (and congratulations on getting into the Professional Photo-Imaging Program at Langara!!), and thank you to our super awesome assistant Mark for lighting and taking care of a lot of logistics for us.
Enjoy some images!
