When your day has come and gone, I want you to have artwork and memories that preserve your once in a lifetime moments. Years down the road, I want you to have photos hanging on the walls of your home, that make you feel that joy all over again when you look at those images. I want you to be able to share them with your family and friends, and future generations. I truly believe that having memories you can physically hold on to and pass down through generations is something so invaluable - and that's what I want to create for you.
When your gallery is ready, we'll have one more celebration! Your gallery reveal can either be in person or online. We'll look through your gallery together as you view your wedding day memories for the very first time. We'll also design your heirloom album. These albums are the best way to truly preserve your legacy. I encourage couples to print their photos and not just let them live on their computer! Heirloom albums are what you'll pass on for generations, set out on your coffee table, and flip through when those memories start to fade. I want you to flip through joy-filled photos and feel and see the love you promised to each other!
When the big day comes, I'm here to support you in whatever way I can, and help you, your friends and family feel at ease with a relaxed approach . You remember how you felt when you look back at your photos, and I want to make sure you remember feeling supported, loved, and celebrated on your wedding day.
Once your contract is signed and deposit is paid, you're officially booked and your date is completely reserved on my calendar. I'll help you plan an engagement session that reflects your story, a wedding day timeline that allows you to truly enjoy your day, and to surprise and delight along the way. My goal during our time together is to guide you throughout the wedding photography process, think of questions you may not know to ask, and make sure you feel cared for every step of the way.
It's important to me that I truly get to know you and your story, and create a customized collection for your unique needs. Choosing a wedding photographer is such an important decision, and I want to make sure you feel supported and have every concern and question answered.

Using Dilshad as our photographer for our wedding + engagement photos was the best decision! The first time we talked with her, we could feel her warm personality and how much she cares about the clients she works with. She was so organized with scheduling and always made sure that we felt comfortable with timelines and details for our day. She was also an incredible resource to ask questions about details that were not just the photos. She was an important part of making our wedding run smoothly. Also, she is the kind of personality you NEED on your big day! She is so calm, extremely excited and enthusiastic, but also so professional and knows how to make the day run as smooth as possible. I think the bonus is how incredibly talented she is! We couldn’t be happier with all of the memories and moments she so perfectly captured on a very important day. They are pictures we will cherish our whole lives with the people we love the most. The worst part of working with Dilshad was saying goodbye after the wedding and gallery were finished (even though we still keep in touch on socials) She is an absolute must have and we couldn’t have been more grateful for her! - Abby and Michael

So, we opted to look over our wedding photos in a cafe with Dilshad. As we're doing this, I can't fully express the blend of emotions I'm having: I'm overfilled with astonishment by how accurately Dilshad's captured all the tiny moments that filled our perfect day. Oddly, I'm also feeling a bit heartbroken because after spending months talking, planning, and sharing this experience with Dilshad, I realize we're done-- my wife and I express that this feels like a breakup! We loved the photos we saw of Dilshad's past work. They were bright, wonderful, genuine, and simply timeless. Since the first message, Dilshad's communication was clear and friendly. When we met for engagement photos, I thought "How can anybody be this nice?". Dilshad could inspire a Disney princess! She had so many fun, playful ideas while staying open to our questions and suggestions. Most importantly, we just felt GOOD around her and had fun together! When we got the engagement photos back, we couldn't wait to share them with our family and friends! They were spectacular! Leading up to the wedding, Dilshad kept in contact with our wedding planner (Jayna at Kirkbrides) and our videographer (Rob Heath) so nothing was lost in coordination. On the day of the wedding, Dilshad and her husband were lovely to our guests while flowing in, out, and through festivities-- it's actually quite a miracle to behold! We will never forget how wonderful you've been to us! Thank you thank you thank you <3 - Haley and Y

"If I could give Dilshad 100 stars I would! Her attention to detail, before, during and after our wedding made everything about the process easier. She is incredibly easy to work with and took the time to get to know me, my fiancé and our story. During one of the busiest wedding seasons, I never felt like I was sharing my time with other clients. She was incredibly organized and responsive leading up to the wedding and even took the initiative to contact our vendors, venue and planner before I had to worry about a thing. On our day, she was a calming presence and made everyone feel at ease and really took into consideration everything we had discussed leading up our wedding. I woke up the next morning to the surprise of the most gorgeous sneak peaks of our photos that really helped to ease the wedding hangover. Following the wedding, she continued the communication, we received our photos in a timely manner and beautifully organized through the portal. I am over the moon with the quality of service and the final product we received. I cannot recommend Dilshad enough, we will be forever grateful in how she captured our day so perfectly!" - Jessie and André

I have no idea where to begin with Dilshad- from the first time we spoke I knew immediately her calm presence was exactly what I would need on my wedding day and through the entire process leading up to it. My husband and I planned a cross country wedding entirely on our own and she was hands down the number one vendor who made things just a little bit easier. Her strong communication, attention to detail and efforts to include every last request in our photos came across multiple times in the months, weeks and days leading up to our big day. On our big day she came through on everything and more. Every pose in every area of our venue we had discussed she remembered. And it didn’t stop there. She delivered the most beautiful photos to us after the wedding and so many special momentos of our photos including a photo box and Christmas ornament to help us remember our special day forever. I could go on and on about Dilshad and her assistant Ethan but I will just say if you want a really solid photographer who will truly go to great lengths to make your day perfect without stressing you out-book her now!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Dilshad and Ethan :) - Caitlin and Steven

"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!" - Ande and Joe

"Dilshad is very talented in her craft. The images she produced for our wedding are stunning. They will be treasured for generations! Dilshad was very friendly and helpful throughout the process. She is very thoughtful and just a wonderful human being in general. She is not only an expert in photography, she’s also built out a lot of great resources on her website that goes a long way to make the day go seamlessly. She is hyper organized, which was a huge help on the wedding day. There was a lot going on that day, but Dilshad and Ethan were on top of everything. They even helped us with little details. We loved their energy. They are people who make everyone around them happy. They were so easy to work with. We would highly recommended Yogi-Smith Photography to anyone! Nothing negative to say at all."
"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

"Dilshad captured beautiful pictures of our wedding! She is an amazing photographer and genuine human being! She was so easy to work with from start to finish. She is there to help in any way possible. The day of our wedding, Dilshad and her second shooter, Ethan were both so kind. They make you feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera! I honestly felt my wedding day went so smooth and I was able to enjoy that day because Dilshad was so calm and confident and kept me on time with her personalized timeline! I am so happy that I decided to have Dilshad capture precious moments of our wedding day. Ian and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We will have beautiful pictures to cherish forever."
