Seattle Persian Wedding: Ashka+Siavash



We first met Ashka when she was coordinating a wedding that we were photographing in 2014, and when she contacted us immediately following that wedding and asked us to be her own photographers we couldn’t have been more humbled or excited!  Being with these two, even during their UW engagement session, always feels like hanging out with old friends, and we were especially excited to photograph their wedding because it was the second Seattle Persian Wedding we’ve had the opportunity to shoot – so we already knew enough about the many traditions and intricate details of a Persian Wedding to know that it was going to be incredibly meaningful, joy-filled, and special…and knowing Ashka+Siavash we knew it was going to be elegant and classic, just as they are together.

They dressed in their separate rooms, and it wasn’t until Ashka was fully into her gown and jewelry that the gravity of the day enveloped her as the tears filled her eyes – and when Siavash got his first glimpse of his bride during their first look he was literally rendered speechless in a way that we’ve never seen before, taking a few moments to collect himself before he could find the words to tell her how beautiful she looked, which he continued to do over and over throughout the day…

Ashka+Siavash, we can’t thank you guys enough for giving us the opportunity to photograph your love, and for welcoming us into your family, and for becoming friends in the process!  Love, R+A
