For 5 years I used to work in the oil & gas industry, a great place to be, learn, and grow! But what's the point of making a lot of money but not actually living—always offshore with no signal or internet reception and hardly any human connection? let that sink in.... Simultaneously, I was capturing weddings on my days off, until I finally broke that fear and uncomfortably threw myself into the unknown—entrepreneurship.
I think the unknown create amazing stories, it keeps me feeling alive, I think if we plan our lives too much we lose the magic.
On every wedding day, my whole life flashes in front of my eyes—everything that I had to do with my life to get to this point. I don't know what future holds, but just knowing the sacrifices I had to make—the past, the heartbreak, the pivot changes, making decisions based on my gut feeling, people thinking that I'm wild, weird and crazy—I just had to follow that voice because if I don't do that I'm disowning and pushing aside my soul. The soul is the most essential thing you have to nurture because it just wants to express itself and have the freedom of choice and the ability to change drastically. You'll know what is right at the moment!
With time, everything has shifted. Now I know where my priorities are and how lucky I am to live the life I lead today. The past is a powerful teacher, and wedding photography simply brings the best out of me.
I always love to dress up with no exception to your wedding. If you look good, you feel good. Watch out for my shoe collection though, haha!
LISTEN!! I do sing—my voice sucks btw—and dance all the freaking time especially while driving. Check my Instagram stories for proof.
This is huge—it's not just a job for me. This is my opportunity to help create and capture a moment that will last you a lifetime. It's my passion to make your vision comes true.
Thanks to all the books I've read over the years! I do my best to hear and validate people. I know when/how to take control and guide/direct people without embarrassing anyone. If you need book recommendations, I got you! ;)
Yes, I'm a patient person. I'll wait for you when you're late for your pre-wedding photoshoot (within reason of course :P).
Simply AMAZING!!! We are beyond happy we chose Chadi for our engagement and wedding day. His personality lightens up the mood no matter how stressful the situation is. Chadi can get along with anyone. My entire family felt comfortable with him on the wedding day. Everyone had a great time taking pictures and they all turned out to be amazing!! He always had a solution for any problem I had. He always made us laugh during every moment. He truly cared about us having a good time. Our wedding day wouldn't have been the same without him. I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful experience. <3
