You're a couple who wants a joyful, fun, wedding day - but most of all, you value a marriage that truly lasts a lifetime. You want your wedding photos to be timeless heirlooms passed on for generations. You deserve to have your story told beautifully by someone who truly understands it, and crafts an intentional experience just for you.
You're ENGAGED! Congratulations on one of the most special seasons in your life! A little about me: I'm a Cleveland Wedding Photographer, but I grew up on the small Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago. I spent half of my life living in South Carolina, so I love Southern style, pastels, and beautiful glowy light, and I believe that has impacted my style of photos the most! I have been married to my college sweetheart for 5 years, and we live in Cleveland, Ohio with our sweet pug, Teddy and our kitty, Simba.

"Leading up to wedding day, Dilshad maintained contact without ever making us feel overwhelmed with all of the other planning going on. She was organized, reliable and a friend throughout the entire process - if we ever had any concerns, or questions she was only a phone call away! Dilshad takes the time to get to know you, and even though she (as well as all other wedding vendors) has multiple clients at a time, we never once felt as though we weren't getting enough of her time, or were not the focus of her energy.Our wedding day went perfect, and Dilshad expertly captured all of the most precious moments, and even a few moments that were wonderful surprises. She put everyone, parents, family and bridal party at ease, and was accommodating to what we wanted for the day. Like our engagement session, the photos came back in a timely manner and were STUNNING. The quality of photos, the number of photos and the organization of the photos via the online gallery were better than I could have ever expected! I can't say enough good things about Dilshad - I would choose her a million times over, and will absolutely be working with her for any future photos needs! Thank you so much Dilshad, for your part in making our wedding day what we have always dreamed, and capturing it so beautifully!"
"We hired Dilshad to do our engagement and wedding photos, and we couldn’t be any happier with that decision. We are not the type of people that enjoy posing for photos, but Dilshad made the experience so much fun thanks to her cheerful and laid back personality as well as her incredible and thoughtful ideas. Out of the tons of photos that we received in our package, there was not a single one that didn’t turn out absolutely perfect.
If you’re looking for a great photographer, we highly recommend Dilshad and guarantee that you’ll be just as happy with her and her work as we are. Thank you, Dilshad, for capturing our big day to perfection!— Haley and Mike

"If you are looking for a photographer that not only has an aesthetic eye but also will make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, definitely book Yogi Smith Photography. Dilshad and her husband Ethan are absolutely INCREDIBLE at making even the most ordinary space look like it’s literally a daydream. They make colors and light truly come to life. I’ve never seen anything like their work. I used them for my wedding and they were not only professional, punctual, and efficient, but they were also SO kind. I had multiple guests come up to me after the wedding and compliment how sweet they were! I’m so thrilled with my photos and will continue to use Yogi Smith photography for branding photos of my business and will recommend them to anyone! If you are in search of a photographer to capture your precious moments in an unforgettable way, Yogi Smith Photography is the way to go! — Tiana and Evan

"I cannot begin to explain how much I loved Yogi Smith Photography. Dilshad is a photographer that hasn't had decades of experience, but she could have fooled me! She had such great expertise and utilized every scenario for a great photo. She has great charisma and a great attitude with all different types of people. Even with my many family members that are not the easiest to corral into a photo. She managed to get all the unruly jokesters and constant blinkers to all look great at once which is a great achievement. Everything went smoothly on the day of my wedding. We were on time for the start time of each segment of the wedding day. I felt the morning was the most hectic, but once Dilshad arrived and we began taking pictures things smoothed out and became less hectic. We had Dilshad and Ethan for 8 hours and they had a mission to be on the spot and not miss a beat. And once it was time for them to go she surprised me with news that she was going to edit the photos the night of! 10:00 at night and editing photos!! The next day when i woke up a got to look at beautifully edited photos! And now four weeks after my wedding I received MANY edited photos. I am overjoyed with how they turned out! Dilshad is driven, gifted, helpful, kind, and most importantly the best photographer ever!— Mara and Dylan
My style is light filled, romantic, and timeless, with a focus on genuine emotion. I walk you through every step of posing and my goal is to make you feel like yourself in front of the camera, and have fun!
