I have been dreading blogging about this wedding for months, not because I don’t like this wedding, but because I LOVE it so much and everything about it, and I knew it will be so hard to select just few images to put on my blog. As I expected, I ended up with a whooping number of 150!! Images, but I don’t really care because this wedding was perfect. Not only the wedding was epic but also Elnaz & Andrew are a dream come true to work with and I was lucky enough to get to be their photographer.

 

We started the days with the girls and as soon as I saw them with the cute floral bridal robes {that I actually got the same for my upcoming wedding, yey!!}, I knew it will be a fabulous day. Elnaz did not even squint when I told her I needed the rings and a glass of champagne with a strawberry inside, she was like: Yes, I was about to get you some, hahah. Of course I needed that for the rings’ shot, I don’t have a drinking problem people!!

While we were having a good time, the guys definitely were having their own little fun party at Andrew’s parents house.

The beautiful wedding reception was in the gorgeous Renaissance Arlington Hotel. The suite in that hotel is so stunningly designed that we had to take some photos there.

I knew this wedding would be over the top beautiful especially since my bestie, Trish, the owner of working bride, was running the show, but still I was mesmerized by the beautiful work she did with this room.

The reception was full of emotions, laughs, and lots of belly dancing, just the way I like it. Made me feel totally at home.

Three years ago, ironically enough on Valentine’s day, my then husband and I got separated. I remember how afraid I was from the unknown: I did not have any family in the US to lean on, our friends did not know how to deal with the separation,and I felt so lonely. I thought to myself how ironic it was that I am in the wedding business, my job is to document couples on their happiest day, celebrating the love to each other, a day that they become a family, while my family was crumbling down in front of me. I was worried that it might affect me and I would not be able to do my job.

I remember thinking Valentine’s day will never be the same for me.

Instead, I found out that what I do actually saved me from losing hope and going to dark places. Seeing the love of my clients on their wedding day made my heart happy. Every ceremony I photographed the tears of joy still came down and I knew it would be OK.

And it was….Even better than OK.

My family flew thousands of miles to come and comfort me, and we all headed to Hawaii and had the best vacation ever {because what is a better way to forget about your problems than Hawaii?}

As soon as I got back from Hawaii, I met the love of my life {through Jdate, if you might ask}. We did not expect this to happen, but we fell over hill for each other. For the last 2.5 year we have beat all odds, like a long distance relationship, quitting jobs, and moving to a new country and we came up on top. We even managed to keep a great and healthy friendship with my ex, and I feel we have created a new extended beautiful family and I am so thankful for that.

Three years later, on Valentine’s day, I feel so blessed, so loved, and so so happy.

 

My heart is full.

 

I have amazing clients, awesome friends, close-knit family, bright beautiful daughter, a precious dog, and a wonderful man by side.

 

I wanted to thank my man, my valentine.

 

I love you to the moon and back

 

I can’t wait to celebrate with you our union in front of our family and friends.

 

Happy Valentine’s Day

Xoxo,

Inbal

So excited and honored to officially announce that the stylish site of BambiniWare​ just launched! And all photographs  were taken by Inbal More Photography​ . Bambiniware  is functional + fashionable gear for stylish moms and babies, and they just partnered with the Martha Stewart American Made Market!  It was such a blast to collaborate with the founder/head designer, Riche Holmes Grant,​ on the photoshoots for Bambiniware site and Martha Stewart’s site. I have been photographing pretty much every milestone of Riche’s family for the last seven years and I am super proud to call her my friend.

The first day we did a lifestyle photoshoot of Riche and her toddler boss, Riley. I have been photographing Riley since she was born, so she was pretty comfortable in front of the camera. It also helped to know the movie “Frozen” by heart:)

Yesterday Romy had an Halloween Parade/Party at her new school.  Not that yesterday was different than any day, since Romy has a wardrobe full of costumes that she wears almost everyday, but this time she was super excited to show off her costume to her new classmates.

I can’t believe how big this kid has become way way way too fast, BUT now when she is more grown, she becomes rebellious when it gets to to have a photo session with her. I guess all these years in front of my camera start taking their tolls and she is getting sick of it.

This session was the hardest by far from anything I have ever shot with her..I Swear!! She just did not want to do it and was whining the whole time.

These images are the best I have got from that session, and I got them barely {with  lot of lots of threats, bribes, lots of pinky swears,etc}.

I hope you all have Happpy Halloween!!!

xoox,

Inbal
