For Photographers

my work


About Us

Hello! My name is Sanaz Fahimi and thanks for taking the time to check out my website. I always find it helps me to take better photographs if I build relationships with my clients. That being said I haven’t met you yet but here is some information about me. I have traveled the world documenting my clients’ most cherished life moments for the past 15 years. I lead the team with a photographic style thats been featured in magazines published around the world. My loyal team continues to innovate and reinvent both the business and creative approach to the art form.

Weddings are an amazing event to photograph because there is a never-ending opportunity to capture once in a lifetime moments; everything from the bride putting on her dress to the couple reciting their vows to the grand exit. Everyone is filled with so much joy, laughter and happiness that it makes my job as the photographer fun. My goal is to deliver photographs that not only look great, but also will be able retell the story of your special day.

Something Little to know about me:

My favorite compliment is when people tell me that I make them comfortable. I get all warm and fuzzy inside. When I am not shooting, you can find me spending time with my family, traveling the world, eating healthy food, working out in my gym for couple hours, baking something sweet or, most likely, behind my computer editing photos. My favorite ice cream is Pistachio Gelato.  My favorite part about my job is becoming close with my couples and being a part of such a big day in their lives. I believe happiness can be captured through my lens and I am  passionate about capturing love of two people.



Negar & Samson

Sanaz has great ideas and is a true professional. She is responsive and super helpful. She is also super fast. I had my online pictures two days after the wedding. I highly recommend her. 

Summer & Jimmy

Sanaz is a very professional and awesome photographer. She spends time taking our engagement photo sessions before the wedding to know us better and let us practice all poses. I definitely recommend her for your big day!

Aria & Asmayit

Sanaz is the best wedding photographer in the DMV. You will get true value for the money you spend and she is a joy to work with. She has become our photographer for family and kids photos because we love working with her so much. 

Yvette and Carl

I could not ask for a more professional team. They took the time to get to know my husband and I before the wedding and they provided us with examples of their work. In addition, they responded to all of my questions in a very timely manner and I had many questions as I was comparing photographers. The photographs were ready for viewing very shortly after the engagement photographs were taken and very shortly after our wedding. They were very patient with me as I selected my photographs - it took me a while because there were so many great photographs to choose from. I have recommended them to friends and family and will continue to do so.

Katie & Kevin

Sanaz and her team were wonderful to work with! My husband and I are quite camera shy and prefer not to be in the spotlight. You would never know by looking at our pictures; Butterfly Photography did such a great job in capturing us during our engagement shoot and wedding! Sanaz was flexible in meeting our needs, but also gave helpful suggestions through the process. It is clear through her pictures that the purpose of her work is not simply a means of fulfilling a contract, but creating a work of art. I've already been recommending her to our friends; and guarantee working with Butterfly Photography will be one of the best decisions you make in planning your wedding!

Souran & Arian

We chose to work with Butterfly Photography based on her pictures and reviews and when we met in person, we were 100% confident that Sanaz and her team were the right choice! When you work with her, you not only get a professional photographer, but also a great person to consult with on all aspects of your big day to look your best. Her thoughtfulness, flexibility and caring come through immediately to make your day as special as it can be. We were extremely happy as she managed to capture all of the important parts of our engagement session and wedding; the only difficult part was choosing which pictures we wanted for our album since we loved them all! She also had a great selection on albums to choose from and we were more than thrilled to see the final product! We have already recommended her to our friends and continue to keep her in mind for future events since you don't need to worry about anything when you work with her.
