Best wedding vendor we picked!

Reviewed on 6/10/2014 Sarah T

I was nervous when selecting a photographer because I do not really like pictures of myself, and my husband is super laid back and I knew he would not want an "in your face" photographer. When first speaking with Rabeeh, I instantly felt comfortable. He explained everything to... Read More me and was always available when I had questions prior to the wedding. The price was very reasonable too. Rabeeh and Alana were both great the day of the wedding! They were on time, very nice and personable, professional, and they were not over-involved and not under-involved. They are both young photographers, but you'd never know it from the photos. Like I said, I don't really like pictures of myself, but I love our wedding photos. Out of all the wedding vendors we used, Blue Dahlia was my favorite. Thank you Rabeeh and Alana for making the best day of my life so far even better!

Just What We Needed

We really lucked out with Rabeeh. I asked him to be our photographer at the absolute last minute, and not only did he agree, but he jumped right in, got all the logistics figured out, and everything went seamlessly. It was an enormous relief to have a real professional there.... Read More I didn't have to worry about him at all. In fact, I don't even remember seeing him during the ceremony---but, looking at his pictures, he somehow managed to capture everything. Thank goodness I decided not to rely on my family's photography!

Wonderful experience and excellent results!!!

What initially attracted me to Blue Dahlia Photography was not only their incredibly reasonable prices but the quality of the photos on their website. It was very important to me to not only capture family and bridal party but to really capture the feel of our big day. Right... Read More away I was beyond pleased with Blue Dahlia. They responded to my inquiry very quickly, pricing was clear and more than fair and I was given a questionnaire to help clarify the types of pictures I wanted; things I wouldn't have thought to ask for without their guidance. Leading up to my wedding they stayed in contact and continued to work with my changes and requests. Day of they were so incredible to work with! I am very shy and nervous about having my picture taken but they put me quickly at ease and gave great direction to get the photos just right. I received my pictures very quickly and they are outstanding!! Better than I ever expected! My day was captured perfectly and I will have these photos to look back on for years to come. I couldn't be more pleased with the quality of work done and the friendly, caring staff. I would absolutely recommend Blue Dahlia Photographer to anyone!! Wedding date 5/31/14

Rabeeh is simply wonderful. He photographed my sisters wedding, shot my senior prom pictures AND just recently did my wedding photos.

I would recommend him for ANY event.

Loved working with this photographer at my brother's wedding! He took the time to make sure that everyone looked good in each shot, and was patient when we had to wait on people or little ones weren't cooperating. And with all that, the pictures were good too.

Rabeeh was great. He made the very best out of our limited time. We had a courthouse wedding and scheduled two hours, but due to the judge's time in court only had about 25 minutes to shoot after the ceremony, but wound up with plenty of great images. Do not hesitate to use him!... Read More Thanks a bunch! David Jones

Rabeeh from Blue Dahlia was our photographer for our wedding on Sept. 3. We got married at the courthouse in Nashville, and even though the ceremony was an hour late because the judge was in court, Rabeeh made the best of our time while we waited and after the ceremony. He was... Read More very professional, patient, flexible, and laid back. We loved how our photos came out, even with the limited amount of time we had. And his prices were very fair.

Highly Reccomend!!

We had such a great experience using this photographer. The quality is great and he is excellent with communication both before and after the big day. He is not pushy and asked me what I wanted and liked every step of the way. Also his pricing is great compared to other wedding...

Amazing experience!! I felt incredibly comfortable (I can't say that I love taking pictures).

I helped coordinate one of my friend's weddings and she used Blue Dahlia photography. Both guys were so easy and fun to work with! They knew exactly what shots to take and did an amazing job. They made everyone feel at ease taking pictures and not posed. She recently got her... Read More pictures back and they were gorgeous. They captured everything she wanted and a lot more. They devoted so much time and energy too- from early morning until late at night. That's not something you see from many photographers these days. I'd definitely recommend Blue Dahlia Photography.

Great personality, great photos

I have attended and been included in several weddings. They all seem to contain a stuffy old photographer with 1980's wedding sensibility. Rabeeh was exactly the opposite.

We found Blue Dahlia on the Knot after our first choice photographer decided she was not longer available on our wedding day. We were planning our Nashville wedding from Los Angeles. Truthfully I booked Rabeeh just from talking to him on the phone, never once seeing a single... Read More photo. He was so calming and confident to a stressed out bride I knew we could work well alongside each other. I was very picky about certain styles and details of photos I wanted, basically I was super difficult. He communicated well with me and delivered an amazing product. He even took the time to get certain photos just right to make sure we were happy. Every person has said how beautiful all of our photos are. I'm so grateful to have met Rabeeh and can't wait for future sessions with him.
