Weddings Stories By Tania: 2020 Weddy Award Winner

By Amy Falkofske Sponsored by Wedding Stories by Tania The spark that started Tania Hossain’s wedding photography business happened in 2011 when she took photos of the preparations for a friend’s Ethiopian wedding. She also took photos of the ceremony at her friend’s request although she wasn’t the official photographer. Her friend ended up liking her photos better, which got her referrals in the Ethiopian, Sudanese and Somalian communities in Northern Virginia. Tania launched her business officially in 2013, specializing in wedding photography. In 2017, she started building a team that now includes five photographers and videographers. She incorporated video into their services in 2019.

By: Wedding Stories by Tania This is the story of two small-town laid-back guys who met online. They went out on a first date in a big city with a lot of skepticism about ever finding love.  Something magical happened on that first date – tingling feelings of love fluttering for them.  And with each next date, they fell in love till one day, they decided that marriage would be their happily ever after.

An Elopement & A Honeymoon

By: Tania Hossain I never thought there would be a perfect time to talk about elopement weddings. If it weren’t for a certain sadness that is carried around with the thoughts of six feet apart and social distancing, most of 2020 has become elopers dream come true. Having said that, elopement weddings are some of my favorite ones. Having done a few of them, I find that it has very little to do with saving money and more to do with this is how couples decided to start their life of togetherness in marriage. Christian and Mariana’s elopement at the Spanish Steps in Dupont Circle – a Washington DC Wedding followed by honeymoon in Rome, Italy right after. Yes, that’s right. They got married in the early afternoon and caught a flight to Rome that evening! How about that for an elopement …

On Celebrating Your Original Wedding Date

By: Tania Hossain of  Wedding Stories By Tania If you have had to delay your wedding date due to any reason out of your control, you are not alone, especially if your original wedding date was in the spring or summer of 2020.  Due to social distance notices to protect public health, staying 6 feet apart with only 10 people was hardly the wedding you had imagined or planned. After working closely with a dozen couples whose 2020 wedding dates were postponed to 2021, I know how much sadness, confusion, and utter sense of loss our couples felt as they worked to schedule their wedding team for their new date. There was a reason our couples had picked their wedding date, so I asked a few of them what they did to celebrate their original date.  I picked a few …

Weddings Photographer Shares the Story of a Lifetime

By Tom Conway Sponsored by Wedding Stories by Tania To stand out among the best wedding photographers in Northern Virginia, you have to listen and know what a client wants, what types of shots — traditional or photojournalistic — will capture that special day, and you have to love what you do.  Tania Hossain and her team at Wedding Stories by Tania know the importance of what they do. “Every single photo tells a story. Some child will see one of those photographs 100 years from now,” says Hossain. “What will they think? The photos will be on the wall in someone’s home. Who will look at it? What will it mean to them?” To Hossain, wedding photography is not just a paycheck. “Every photograph is a legacy piece,” she says. “You see children, grandchildren and how they grow up.” …
