Shari Wedding Photography takes stunning photographs that are both classical and contemporary in style. We are both proud and humbled to have photographed weddings across the United States and overseas destinations.

Our photographs have been reprinted in Huffington Post, Good Morning America, and numerous other wedding and photography web and magazine sites.

Our goal is to make all our clients feel amazing about the services and the photographs we provide. I am very versatile and go above and beyond with all my clients. I make myself available to you from the moment they book my services and happily deal with any concerns on any aspect of your wedding. I've done so many that I know the ins and outs of all parts of a wedding day.

I am most humbled becuase so many of my wedding clients make me their family photographer to document their new lives and family. I am truly blessed to be a part of their lives.

Our Collections begin at $2200 and include the following:

- We offer you 6-10 hours Wedding Day Photography.

- I personally edit all photographs with release on Flash Drive.

- Our Wedding Albums are Custom Designed

- You will have a Personal Web Page for displaying wedding images.

- Our engagement sessions are unique and fun. I am known to bring a bottle of wine or some beers to shoots for us all to enjoy at the end. I love my work.

Fantastic! That's how I would describe everything Rez did- from the first meeting to the planning, to the day of, and finally the pictures. I loved them all and there were so many. I have spent hours looking through them and they are amazing. A perfect documentary of our amazing day. So any people commented on his work that day- he seemed to never stop working. He came early and left late- way after his contracted time. Thank you so much Rez!

I really recommend Rez. He did a fantastic job. We had a small ceremony and reception- very low key. It was the 2nd wedding for my husband and I so we didn't want a big show- been there done that type of thing. . Rez communicated with us along the way and made us feel really special with his attention to detail. Even though it was only a few hours and not a big wedding, Rez went all out and I really appreciate his concerns and efforts. He's a great guy and a super talented photographer.

My wife and I hired Rez to photograph our engagement photos in May 2013, and our wedding in April 2014, and I could not be happier with the results! Photography was very important to my wife and I because we wanted to document our once-in-a-lifetime wedding. We interviewed a number of other photographers in the St. Louis area but we were ultimately struck by Rez's fantastic portfolio, kind and caring nature, and professionalism. Not only was Rez was professional, personable, and hard working. He has a great eye for detail, and takes fantastic photos! Our wedding even took place on his birthday and he still spent over 10 hours capturing the details of our wedding day! He really is passionate about photography and dedicated capturing life's wonderful moments. I would recommend Rez to any person(s) looking for a photographer to capture the special moments in their lives. He is the best!

We had narrowed our choice to 3 photographers. All three were wonderful and priced about the same. We chose Rez because he was going to bring more experience and more involvement in the planning. His experience was a big selling feature. I wasn't going to pay a photographer - no matter how much we liked them - if they didn't have the experience and knowledge. I'm glad we made that a priority becuase things did not happen as planned on the day. And while the other vendors seemed a little clueless as to what to do, Rez and has other photographer quickly got the situation worked out and had a plan. He literally saved a big part of the day. I also appreciated how he had the day timelined in detail. He was really organized and kept us in the loop. Nothing was left to chance. His pictures arrived this week and they were as we expected. Just lovely and perfect. Thank you Rez!

We interviewed 4 photographers and Rez was the most genuine. He asked all the right questions and gave suggestions for our days timeline that we had not thought of but made total sense. It was obvious he knew his stuff and was experienced in photographing a wedding day. Our wedding was beautiful and simple with a small gathering. But We wanted a creative photographer to get us special photographs of our kids and us. Rez really went out of his way to accommodate . We got our pictures yesterday- really fast turn around. Stunning and beautiful.. Oh yeah- the weather was awful- who gets married in January! But his attitude was superb and you'd never know it. Great guy and awesome photigrapher.

I couldn't have asked for a better photographer. When we decided to switch to another state (crazy right!) he cheerfully said no problem like it was nothing and made it all work out perfectly. I can't say the same about our other vendors. A great guy who really takes his job as a photographer seriously. We told him to take any kind if picture bc we trusted him totally. Pictures arrived yesterday . 1000+ incredible pictures- WOW. He is worth it.

It became obvious during the interview process for photographers that there are many weekend wedding warrior photographer wanna be's- guys with a digital camera who think they can do a wedding. But Rez is a pro- the real deal. From the first meeting, the engagement session, and the wedding he was really positive and full of great ideas. Our confidence in him was total. Like The timeline he made was what kept the day flowing! The pictures arrived on Christmas Eve and they are amazing looking. Really beautiful work. He is an artist and a true professional.

After looking and comparing several photographers, I chose Rez based on quality of pictures from his website and the price of everything included in the packages. Once I contacted Rez, it was a constant stream of communication, even while I was living out of the state. Rez is 100% in control and keeps track of everything, so you don't have to...major plus for a bride!! We met for engagement pictures and had drinks after to talk about the plans for wedding day. I was unaware that that much preperation went into planning photography for a wedding, but I am so happy Rez knew because the day was flawless. Rez and his assistant Emily were early on wedding day, and calm, not rushing around. Rez will tell you what you need to do to make the day go smoothly, and all the bride has to do is smile; so easy and perfect! Rez and Emily were so cool the whole day and stayed very late into the evening. Side note- I wanted to get a picture of all my cousins that were standing in a group, and within a matter of seconds, Rez was there taking a picture of all of us. He knows what is going on around him ALL DAY. I have seen photographers who ask the BRIDE what they want to do next, and how is the bride supposed to know?! Rez is a true professional and knows exactly what to do. I didn't think anything could be more perfect than the wedding day; but then I got my pictures back. Seriously stunning. That is all I can say. I looked for weeks for a photographer, spoke with many, and no one stood out like Rez. If you are still looking, go with Rez, you will be thanking me! =)

Hardest working guy I think we booked for our wedding! From the first email we sent him asking about his prices in 2012, to his followups after we received our pictures, Rez was on top of everything. You will never need to worry about this vendor when it comes to communication. easy to get hold of, and always has an answer. His pictures are brilliant. He captured the day exactly as we had hoped. He is a great guy and clearly loves his job. Thanks Rez!

My husband and I were beyond pleased with the service and product we received from Shari Photography. Everything from the engagement photos to the reception was exactly what we were looking for. The engagement photo session was quick and fun and the shots turned out great! Rez scouted photo op locations for after-ceremony shots and they turned out fantastic! Rez and Jason were very professional, organized, fun and upbeat. We received so many compliments from family, guests, and the wedding party. Amazing service and product at an incredible price. We received better service, had more fun, and received a much better product than most of our friends who spent twice as much. I would DEFINITELY recommend Shari Photography to any future brides!!!

We couldn't have asked for a better photographer! Rez and his team were absolutely amazing, and went above and beyond what we were expecting. Rez has such a great personality and energy, it made our day even more special being able to be comfortable and have fun during our pictures. My husband has filmed over 400 weddings and he said he's never seen a better photographer. The pictures are perfect, we could tell that Rez really made an effort to do what we asked for. And there are so many good ones its hard to pick selects for an album!
We also had our photobooth done through Shari Photography. I would highly recommend this if you're considering a photobooth, the pictures are so much better (and you get so many more) having a person take them than trying to shove all your friends into a booth. Best guest book ever!

We knew the minute we spoke with Rez, that he was passionate about getting fantastic images. Rez is very accommodating and does a great job of putting any fears to rest. He goes out of his way and thinks outside the box to capture the perfect picture. The whole wedding party loved him, and so did we! He did a perfect job capturing the best day of our lives. We have amazing pictures that will last us a lifetime, and that is priceless!

When my wife told me she getting ready to write a review for Rez of Shari Photography I asked if I could do it. This guy was amazing. He has got to be one of the hardest working photographers out there. He showed up early and stayed late even though you didn't have to. My groomsmen and I are just a bunch of good old boys and he made us feel so comfortable with his jokes, his energy, and his whole attitude. He actually made formals and the wedding photos really fun and enjoyable. We just received them and holy cow this guy took so many amazing pictures. It's like the whole day documented for us . He is worth every penny. The pictures and the photography was my wife's area of concern and she just cried in joy - no bull- when she looked through them. And I'll be honest, they are so many really great pictures. Above and beyond. This is one of the best wedding vendor choices we made .

Rez was our photographer. He and his partner were amazing. We shopped around for photographers and when we met him we know we wanted him to do our wedding. He spoke with a lot of passion about his pictures and he knew so much about the technical details of each picture. He clearly knew his stuff. He created a really detailed timeline of the day for us, responded very quickly to our emails and texts, within minutes when we had a minor crisis! On the day he busted his butt! He was everywhere taking pictures. We received our flash drive with so many amazing pictures of the day. It was just what I wanted. Really beautiful and fun pics. He is well worth it.

Our wedding site was put under construction last minute causing several pictures to be done on the fly and he did amazing at eliminating the poor backgrounds and finding great ones for shooting. You get what you pay for here and then some.

Reza is great!!!! So much fun and tons of energy. He made the photos entertaining and made the best out of a not so good situation with our venue. He and his assistant stayed with us from 10am -10pm and they were full of energy the entire time. We havent even seen the photos yet, but we know he did a fantastic job! If he gets in the market for maternity photos when the time comes, I would book him for that too. Great job!

Rez from Shari Photography is the best. He made every effort to get to know my fiance and I and what we were looking for in our wedding photos. He went above and beyond in every way - sending a bottle of wine to thank us for our business, two photographers with no extra charge, took photos at our rehearsal, and provided suggestions for great photograph spots. All of that and at a great value. He was extremely flexible - when our shuttle bus broke down he drove us to next photo spot and our venue, and he came early and stayed late on our wedding despite the fact that it went past our contracted time. He wanted to make sure no important moment was missed. Our interactions with Rez were very different from other photographers we met with. We felt he cared about our wedding day as much as we did and he was so high energy and enthusiastic. He was a pleasure to work with. Finally, about the photos! Shari Photography's style can include those formal photos if you are looking for that, but they capture a lot of the candid moments, the real moments. Those were the types of photos we wanted for our wedding day. We didn't want typical and traditional. We were looking for something that was eye-catching, creative, genuine and different. Looking at the photos from our wedding, we got exactly that. And that is exactly what Shari Photography is - creative in their photographic talent, genuine in their interactions with their clients and they offer something different and truly wonderful. Highly recommend!

Before choosing a photographer for our wedding, we did a lot of research. After meeting with Rez it was very clear that he was the best choice for us. Rez was fun, professional, and very quick about getting back to us with information as well as our pictures after the event. We received many comments from people in our wedding party, as well as guests, that just raved about the personality and dedication of our photographer. Rez is the type of person that is all over the place during the event, yet you barely realize he is there. I would definitely recommend Shari Photography to anyone getting married.

Shari Photography saved the day at my wedding. Due to a series of unfortunate events, I found myself in need of a wedding photographer a MONTH out from my wedding. I had shot with Shari Photography before and been incredibly pleased with the photos, so I called to see if he could help. I got a fast response and was in a meeting with Mr. Behnam later in the week putting together our contract...Shari Photography was REALLY focused on getting us the shots and the feel that we wanted for our special day. He and his associate were perfectly on time all throughout the day, and they were so much fun to work with...my wedding party members all loved him and are still talking about how much fun he was. Our photographs are exactly what we wanted, and we could not be more pleased with how they turned out (in fact, the hard part is going to be choosing our favorites!). Shari Photography is incredibly professional and fun, and I would recommend this business to any bride looking for beautiful, lasting images on one of the most important days of their life!

Ok, so my family said I was a bit of a bridezilla. I don't think so. I just wanted things exactly how I wanted them. We had a pretty tight budget, but it was important to me to get really great pictures. A co-worker recommended Shari Photography, and I'm so glad she did!

Rez was awesome. He listened to what we wanted and came up with great ideas. He was really flexible when I had to change some things. Even though we were on a tight budget, Rez worked with us, and the end result was amazing. He found ways to make the pictures totally reflect who we are. Our pictures look like we paid twice as much as we did!

I really appreciated working with someone who made us the center of attention. I would recommend Shari Photography to anyone!

First of all, the photos for my daughter's May wedding were amazing! Such a gorgeous day and Reza captured not only the usual set shots, but some really wonderful casual photos.
I find myself going back to look at those unposed shots because they make me laugh out loud and tear up. I'm not sure how he got all the shots he did. He was charming and encouraging; my daughter is shy; he brought out the best in her.
I definitely recommend Shari Photo.

Shari Photography is the best! Reza Behnam took stunning portraits before our reception and captured beautiful moments during the party. His attention to detail and ability to put subjects at ease is impressive. He even managed to get the attention of our 200 guests for a group shot, which is among my favorites. Thanks to him, we've captured some really special memories from our "big day."

Pictures were important to us. Even though we were on a budget and were paying for it all ourselves, I was willing to go over on the photographer. We looked at most of the photographers websites and met with 4. While most websites had plenty of great pictures, it was Rez's that we liked the most. What sold us was when we met him. He is clearly experienced at is and knows his stuff. And he is really into his photographs. He spoke at length about his pictures- about the choices he made, settings, and all sorts of details that only a true artist would know about their work. He's is also very engaging and we instantly took a liking it him. And we loved how we met over a beer instead of another coffee! He kept in contact with us leading up to the day. When we signed he said he was not quite 24-7, but I think he is because he would reply to texts or calls almost immediately. On the day he was in charge and I loved it. He kept my girls on schedule by gently reminding us of times. The brides maides loved him - tall dark and handsome. He bonded with the guys and they loved his jokes and energy. And when we got our pictures they were beautiful. Exactly what I wanted from him. I look amazing in the portraits- :) he is well worth it. He will be doing our pictures for many years to come. Thank you Rez.

Rez was brilliant! We met with about 6 other photographers before picking Rez. His level of professionalism and passion was way above the others during the meeting. We weren't looking for cookie cutter type pictures, but really cool images. Rez loved that we wanted him to be as creative as he dared. When we got the pictures we had an amazing range of traditional and crazy cool shots. His fees were a little more than we wanted to spend, but in this case you get what you pay for- stunning pictures, a fun energetic guy who went above and beyond. The engagement session was so much fun- we went to 3 different locations and were blown away by the pictures. The wedding day went perfectly. He covered the whole day, and had every minute planned. So many of our friends commented on his enthusiasm and energy. I highly recommend Rez- he is well worth the price.

Shari Photography was absolutely wonderful. On top of being top-notch photographers, Reza and Randy were prepared, caring, and fun to have around.

Pre-wedding, after taking the time to meet with us several times, taking detailed notes, scouting all of our locations and really making sure they understood our individual needs and wants, we really felt good about trusting them with this very important part of our wedding because they were so obviously engaged.

On our wedding day they got lots of great, natural candid shots and kept it fun and quick (a big request of ours) for the formal posed shots.

We received our photos really quickly after our wedding and found beautiful, high-resolution shots that did a fantastic job of capturing our big day.

Highly recommended!

We didn't know what we wanted for our wedding but Rez was so calm, professional and enthusiastic it was easy to relax and put ourselves in his hands.
The photographs are amazing and really unique. The ones of me and my husband are so beautifully lit, they just glow, and he made sure we had lots of really natural ones of our friends and family that make the whole day come alive again when I look at them. He even got the details I know I would have forgotten like my 3 year old niece dancing all by herself on the dance floor, so cute!
Even though he was with us for the whole ceremony and reception party, Rez never felt like he was in the way or intruding. I would definitely recommend him.

When Sam and I were getting married we did a lot of research before deciding on Shari
Photography, and we are so glad we did!

Thanks to Rez and his beautiful pictures we have a wonderful photographic memory of our wedding day. I just love looking at them, he got it all, the solemnity of the occasion, the love, the joy, the sunshine, he even got Mother shedding a few happy tears. When I look at the photographs, I just want to do it all again! Thanks Rez.

Rez was very enthusiastic; he had lots of energy and provided just enough direction during our engagement session, which was incredibly helpful since we felt awkward in front of the camera. Rez stuck to the plan throughout the wedding, making sure we got all of the specific shots we wanted and kept us on schedule. Plus, we received the results very quickly!
