I picked up a professional camera for the first time in my life back in Nov. 2019. I practiced every single day for a few months until I started Nour B. Photography in March 2020, one week before the pandemic and lockdowns. It was a blessing in disguise, because within three years I was able to achieve my dreams of making so many people happy by falling in love with their photos! I do enjoy being in front of the camera, but photography to me is a passion, and not just an income. Hearing how much you love your photos, and seeing them shared with the world makes me the happiest person in the world!
Since I was young I have always been fascinated with how we see ourselves in photos, and how some people look the same in real life as they do in their photos, while others look [completely] different! It turns out the secret is with the photographer! The right lighting, angles, outfit/colors, and camera settings along with a natural smile and confidence - and viola - you will be amazed at how you look in photos!
My real "why" for being a wedding photographer is because I have the WORST wedding pictures ever! My husband and I were pressured into marrying in the Middle East to accommodate family that could not travel to the U.S., so we were basically guests at our own wedding - we barely had the chance to plan anything let alone pick the right photographer. Our wedding itself was beautiful - but unfortunately the wedding planner hired a photographer who I am sure to this day had no clue what they were doing! The most important thing in a wedding is your photos, because after the wedding is over, they are the only thing that will last a lifetime. That is why I made it my mission to go above and beyond and make sure you LOVE your wedding photos!
A little more about me
I fled the Syrian War in late 2012, and could not finish my psychology degree from Damascus Syria. It was heartbreaking, but I trusted in God alone and He has given me more than I could ask for!
I married the love of my life in 2014, and we now have two boys, Adam (7) and Ibrahim (4). They are the center of my world, and my main goal in life is to raise them to be good, honest, and faithful humans.
Work hard play hard right? If I am not shooting, editing, or doing anything photography related, I am most likely playing with my boys. They give me all the energy I need and they are a reminder of why I work so hard!
I have come a long way in a very short time span, and I attribute all of my success to God alone. I genuinely love to see others succeed in life, to the point that I find myself making prayers here and there for complete strangers!
