Muslim Wedding Photographer
As a Muslim Wedding Photographer, I’m fortunate to have experienced so many Islamic traditions and weddings, including Mehndi, Nikkah and Walima ceremonies.
Muslim weddings are beautiful and heartfelt occasions celebrating the bride and groom’s marriage and commitment to their faith.
My Muslim wedding photography captures all the moments and emotions in a natural and non-obtrusive manner.
As with many other cultural weddings, Muslim customs can vary worldwide and even within a country. However, all Muslim marriages are guided by Islamic laws and the scriptures from the holy book, the Quran.
On the wedding day, it is customary for the bride and groom to perform the Salat al-Istikharah (a prayer to Allah for guidance) together.
The Qazi, an elder of the Mosque, carries out the Muslim wedding ceremony.
The actual wedding ceremony is called the Nikaah, a very important Islamic tradition. The bride and groom are kept apart during the marriage ceremony, which ends with a prayer called the Dua.
Once married, the bride and groom invite their guests to a wedding banquet, the Walima.
As a Muslim wedding photographer, I have witnessed much joy and emotions throughout the celebration.

Choosing a Muslim Wedding Photographer
Choosing the right photographer is an essential part of the planning of your Muslim wedding. Your photographer will create photographs that will last a lifetime and allow you to relive the joy of your celebrations for years to come.
Spend time researching photography styles, and wedding blogs can be a great place to start. For instance, documentary photography tells the story of your day by capturing natural moments of emotion as they unfold and is extremely popular.
Once you find a style you like, it’s time to look at photographers:
- First, check out their online portfolios to ensure their style fits your requirements.
- Narrow your list to two or three and read about their approach.
- If they still need to show an entire wedding online, ask if you can see one.
Please don’t leave it too late! Many photographers take limited bookings and are booked up a long time in advance. I choose to shoot up to 25 weddings per year, so I can remain fresh and inspired, which means some dates are booked months (or even years!) in advance.
Try to meet your chosen photographer online or in person, and prepare a list of questions to ask. I like to meet all my couples online (preferably) over coffee and cake, and if it’s not practical to meet in person, I will schedule a video call instead.
Think about the extras. Do you need a second photographer or extended coverage late into the night? Would you like a pre-wedding photoshoot? If you haven’t already considered one, a pre-wedding shoot is a great way to get to know your photographer and will help you feel more relaxed in front of the camera on your wedding day.
