Frequently Asked Questions
What events do you photograph?
I have covered mendhi parties, nikkah ceremonies at home, in the mosque or at wedding venues, walimas, sikh events, women only events and segregated weddings, traveled from the bride's house, to the venue, to the first entrance at the groom's house and more!
I also have experience in covering several cultures, from the North African glam brides that change 4 dresses in one night, to the emotional Bengali bidais, I have danced along Somali songs and captured the colours of Pakistani ceremonies.
I have met plenty of aunties from all over the world... and it's my favourite part to be in touch with so much diversity and different cultures all the time!
Where are you based and do you travel?
I am based in North West London, but I am happy to travel for you if you want me to photograph your special day, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place.
Anywhere around London will be included in your package, but do not hesitate to get in touch for further destinations - even abroad!
When will we get our photos?
Your will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within maximum 6-9 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season).
You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them, choose your favourites, and also order prints!
How many pictures will we receive?
The amount of photos is usually minimum 400 fully edited images, up to, exceptionally, 800. It varies according to how many hours you book me for and also on how eventful your day is. North African weddings have usually 4 entrances and dresses, while asian weddings *can* be more calm (not a given). Regardless, I always choose quality rather than quantity and that's why I will choose the best and more significant photos to tell your story.
Do you provide physical photo albums or usb boxes?
I can provide that for an extra cost upon request after receiving the digital gallery.
I want to book, what next?
Amazing news! You can head to my contact page and send through an enquiry form. I will then get in touch with you to proceed onto the next steps and get to know you and your plans for your special day better.
We are camera shy and never had photos taken...
Do not worry at all! Each couple is different and I am always happy to personalise my service according to YOU! I have shot couples that have been married for 3 years and are super comfortable with each other and also couples that have touched hands for the very first time in front of my lens and were too shy to even look at each other in the eyes... Every couple shoot is different, and I will always do my best to tell you some silly joke that will make you feel more comfortable in front of the camera. Everyone can have special photos regardless of how awkward they might feel, and this is why I am here for you. I just hope you like my sense of humor...
Do you offer videography?
Yes, but according to availability of the amazing videographer I collaborate with (@jalaishahnaveed). We are a women only team with years of experience and we provide a specific offer for events we cover together.
In case my team is not available, I got plenty of great professional to recommend you tho!
Do you offer second shooter packages?
Yes! According to request I am happy to offer an extra photographer on my side - this can be a second female photographer or a male photographer (to cover your groom getting ready or the men side of a segregated event...).
They are a small group of trusted creatives of which I love the style and method. In this case, they will shoot and I will edit the photos myself.
It is a great option for big weddings, where you don't wanna miss a second of coverage and allows us to be in two different places at the same time, on the same day!
What happens in case of a lockdown?
Insha'Allah this will not be the case anymore, but we never know. In case of a cancellation or lockdown being announced, your deposit will not be refundable but transferable to another future date - it will be refunded to you in case the date you are moving your special day to, I will not be available. I in fact always recommend to check first with your service providers for their availability before moving dates.
