Issa studied photography at Art Center College in Pasadena before going on to work as a photojournalist for the LA Weekly. An award winning photojournalist, her work appears in Wired, Smart Money, Fortune, Time and Los Angeles Magazines, among other publications. In 2001 she traveled to Budapest, Hungary to shoot production stills for "An American Rhapsody" (Paramount Classics). Issa is also known for her distinctive CD covers.
Her photojournalistic style and fine art approach have made her a much sought after wedding and event photographer. Issa's extraordinary photographs of Cuba and Hollywood were included in 3 recent retrospective shows of her work in Los Angeles.
"The artistic challenge in photographing a wedding is to create evocative, interesting pictures and to capture the essence of the day; the emotion and tension, the details and traditions, the excitement, happiness and the moments in between."
Issa loves to travel and is available for destination weddings.
