Destination Weddings, Photo
Ron Soliman and his wife, Blessy, were the utmost pleasure to work with! Ron made us, particularly my very camera-shy fiance at the time, so comfortable for our engagement photos by making us laugh and felt like an old friend almost immediately. During the wedding and reception, he was able to smoothly go along with the very chaotic requests of a Big Indian Wedding family throughout the event. The sneak peek of the pictures they have given us so far have already stunned all of our family and friends. My videographer said he was such a pleasure to work with that he even booked him for his own daughter's wedding! You knew he was something special when my usually very critical mother the next day, could not stop praising Ron and Blessy. They have both been able to perfectly capture the magic and happiness of the day, and we cannot praise him enough. We feel so incredibly lucky to have worked with them! They even gave us the most beautiful guest book as a wedding present on top of everything else!
Although we didn't get to work with Ron directly for our wedding, due to scheduling reasons, we worked with him for our engagement photo session. He was able to make one half baron look like a full fall foliage scene in 30 degree weather! We absolutely loved a our enagagement photos! For our wedding we had the privilege to work with his wife Bless and his colleague Joe H. They made my wife and I feel very comfortable in front of the camera! The were not only photographers, Bless and Joe had many roles. Bless was an impromptu make up artist that provided Allison with the perfect lip color, a stand in bridesmaid who helped Allison on her shoes on multiple occasions, and was a mom a who brought me a cup of hot water with lemon to help my sore throat! While Joe was a therapist, facilitated crisis management, comedic relief and videographer when ours was two hours late for the day! We cannot express how wonderful this team was! We started the day strangers and became family! There is no doubt that our wedding pictures will be stunning and capture all of the beautiful moments of the day! Ron Soliman Photojournalism is a extremely inclusive company with the most talented and progressive team. As two brides, they assisted other vendors to see love and not labels. We cannot thank them enough for being a part of our special day! Their work is worth every penny!
Love!!! Love!! Loveeee!Reviewed on 10/30/2014 Katie Lynn D
Let me just tell you that this photographer is by far the most talented individual I've ever met. This is a husband and wife team--Ron and Bless. And both of whom deliver nothing short of excellence. From the minute I met with Ron, there wasn't any question as to who will be shooting on my wedding day. I didn't even care about the price...I knew I had to have this photographer!! Aside from their talent, their personalities are so welcoming and loving that you couldn't even make up something negative about these two if you tried. My wedding day was very chaotic with some unexpected family emergencies, and both Ron and Bless were still able to capture the most breathtaking footage that I've been apart of. My biggest concern regarding photography was that my husband hates to have his picture taken. Well after pulling a few teeth to get him to the engagement photo shoot, he was actually the one who wouldn't stop talking about how amazing our wedding pictures were going to be. And that they were!! I could go on and on....Ron and Bless actually set up a slideshow at our reception to allow guests who couldn't make the church see some of the photos from earlier in the day. It's been 4 days since the wedding and I already have 165 pictures from them. There were guests at the wedding that have contacted me about who my photographer was because you could just see the talent in their demeanor. These two people will always be a part of my life...I will use them for any type of function that I want photographed. And I strongly suggest you do the same. There is not a single thing you will be disappointed with. Thank you Ron and Bless!!! xox Katie & Sean
Amazing!!!Reviewed on 9/20/2014 Lauren S
Ron and his wife, Bless, are absolutely amazing!! Not only is every photo a work of art but they are such wonderful/nice people to work with!! Ron shot our engagement photos and most recently captured our wedding. Ron makes you feel immediately comfortable and is extremely patient, flexible, and professional. In this age of social media it's easy to forget that photography is a true art - but Ron's work immediately reminds you of the artistic value in this medium and he truly is a master of his craft. His work is truly masterful - and like nothing I've ever seen before. My new husband, David, and I give him our highest recommendation!!
Professional, ArtisticReviewed on 8/15/2013 Stevie F
From the moment we hired him, Ron went above and beyond expectations (and we had high ones after viewing Ron’s gorgeous portfolio!) Not only is Ron a fantastic photographer, he’s a very warm and genuine person, it felt like working with a friend right from the beginning. Throughout the process he and his partner were courteous and professional—never intrusive, but always catching the best moments of our wedding that we may have otherwise missed. When our videographer had to leave earlier than we expected, Ron even offered to take some video of important moments for us. And, while neither I nor my husband are models, Ron made us feel like we were at a professional shoot. He gave us great direction so that our photos came out looking like something out of Vogue. Because of his editorial style, when we look at the photos it feels like we can relive that day (which was only a couple of weeks ago—he had about 300 edited photos sent to us in time to look at on our honeymoon!). He was also very knowledgeable of the key areas to shoot in Philadelphia, even giving directions to our trolley driver on where to park at each location. Overall, hiring Ron was the easiest and quite possibly our best decision made in this wedding.
Best Photographer I have ever seenReviewed on 10/02/2012 JENNIFER D
I used Ron and his lovely wife Bless for my wedding photography. I can not put into words how absolutely amazing the pictures are. MY Husband & I stumbled across a picture that Ron had taken in front of a church in NJ. We loved the photo so much we decided to call him. He met us at our house at 1 in the morning after a photo shoot to tell us about himself and show us his portfolio. We were so impressed we booked him for our wedding the next morning. It was the best money we ever spent. Ron & Bless are an amazing couple and team. They are truely professional and have a great eye for what works & how to achieve it. My pictures are so beautiful. Ron captured so many important moments and displayed the pictures throughout the night at our wedding, our guest were amazed by his talent. People stood in front of the monitor just praising all the photos. My mom who is a very hard person to impress was speechless. I can hardly wait to see the rest of my photos and get my album completed! Ron and Bless are so wonderful and talented. They are also great people to be around and to work with. They went above and beyond for our special day and I am so pleased that I had the honor of having them with me on my special day!
I LOVE Ron.Reviewed on 11/11/2011 Jackie L
