About Me

My name is Salah J Weliyo but most of people know me as Salah Walinja. I'm 26 years old born in Mareerey, Somalia, Africa and raised in Kenya but mostly raised in Seattle, WA, USA. I'm finally engaged to a beautiful girl name Bola Hassan - very soon we will be married. I never short on beautiful things to photograph. My first camera was given to me by my father Jabril Hassan. In high school, my interest in photography grew as I took the odd elective here and there, but the impulse to become a wedding photographer did not come until shortly after graduation. When I was asked to photograph my aunt's wedding, I was unsure at first. But the moment I developed the first images, I was hooked. In the 7 years since, I have photographed over 150 weddings and have developed a easy and expressive style that my clients love. My unobtrusive methods and steady demeanor allow couples to relax and be in the moment, knowing that their day will be captured on film exactly as it was in reality. If you would like me to document your story, or your wedding day please get in touch me.
