Engagement Photography

Morteza was amazing to work with. My fiancé and I have never taken professional photos before, but with Morteza’s directions, we felt at ease for the whole session. Morteza really focuses on good composition, lighting, and posing and offered so many good suggestions for us. He really took into account all the little details and we couldn’t have been happier with how our photos turned out. Turnaround time was quick and photo quality was *chefs kiss*. Next time we need a pro photographer, we will definitely reach out again. Thank you!

Morteza Safataj Photography Did a fantastic job! With Covid concerns we made the choice to have a micro wedding at home, but we still wanted to capture the moment in a beautiful way. Morteza made that happen. He came a bit before the ceremony and caught getting ready moments on both sides. He managed to capture both candid and staged moments throughout the ceremony and small reception. He was efficient, professional, while helping direct us to catch the best light, set up family shots, and be present for our first dance, cake cutting, and laughs. He has an eye for light and added in some artful photos (through windows, taken off reflections in mirror, low perspective) that were unique and beautiful additions to traditional wedding photos. His end product was exactly as he had said. He delivered close to 300 photos in a link within 2 weeks. Other than personal preference for looking one way or the other, every one is a great photo. I love that we have a link that we can return to and share photos from. Morteza was there for each moment, and managed to do so without being intrusive. Really the only critique, is that the edited photos may have been edited in terms of photographer knowledge of exposure / light etc, but there were many beautiful pictures that had peripheral objects, such as a purse or a stray object that could have easily been cropped out - transforming the picture from good to great. That being said, because he shared the link of digital photos, we were able to go in and make those edits ourselves. When we have the opportunity to have our “official reception” with all our friends and family with us who couldn’t be there for our small ceremony, we will certainly be contacting him to ask him to capture the next chapter!

Morteza was punctual and on time at the session! He was open to our suggestions and willing to explore his photography skills during our photo session. We really enjoyed having him take our engagement pictures and would definitely recommend him!

We could not have been happier with Morteza. He was incredible at our engagement photo shoot and our wedding. Our engagement shoot photos turned out great and I can't wait to see the wedding pictures. He was creative with his ideas, and very understanding and helpful in delivering what we wanted. I highly recommend this talented photographer.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    It depends on the project and if the clients want the file to prints.

    I'd like to talk with my clients about their needs. after discussion I'll give my opinions and share my experience to enhance the final result.
