“Anyone can click a shutter. But when you are capturing amazing moments that cannot be recreated, you have to learn to listen to know where to look. You have to click with people BEFORE you click the shutter. Excellent job Naveed. You are awesome & passionate and it clearly shows. Thanks for being an integral part of our happiness.” – Iqbal Ahmed, father of the brides

We had the pleasure of meeting Naveed through our Videographer, Halim Qayum who has been working with Naveed for quite some time (they are a great team by the way!). Our wedding was about 6 months away and I was able to see the first glimpse of his amazing work at our ENGAGEMENT PARTY at my parent’s home. My family describes Naveed like the wind; you don’t even know he is there and where he took the pictures from, but he was always at the right place at the right time and captured the perfect moment; moreover, the most meaningful moments!
Then we had our ENGAGEMENT SHOOT at two different locations on two different days. I had told Naveed was that I didn’t like taking pictures. Naveed assured me that I would feel comfortable and that is exactly how I felt throughout. If you were to see the pictures, I laughed so hard it made my stomach hurt. He always did or said something to make me smile or laugh and I don’t know if he was even trying to. Naveed is quite the perfectionist and will stop at nothing to get the perfect shot. He climbed a tree and even hung off a gazebo over the water, all to capture the right angle and make our pictures unique. On part 1 of our engagement shoot, we used the location where my husband and I had met. We didn’t know this, but our location was the stop for a marathon that day! I was a bit worried that my pictures would have hundreds of strangers with numbers on their shirts and biker shorts in the background. Naveed did not even flinch. He made us the focus of the pictures and you would never have known that there was an event that day.
Throughout the course of the few months leading up to the wedding, I kept in touch with Naveed and he was very responsive. We felt so confident in him and never had to give any direction. His images were very high quality and very vivid.
Then we had a 15 hour WEDDING day (ceremony and reception) with 500+ people in April. My husband and I are from two different cultures and Naveed (and Robin) caught each step and captured the essence of each ceremony, telling the story. Naveed even stayed with us through the last, last, last song just clicking away. Once I got the pictures, I felt like I was watching a movie. I laughed, I cried (happy tears) and the emotions I felt on my wedding day came rushing back. As the bride, you don’t get to see everything that happens behind the scenes while everyone runs around, but Naveed was able to fill in those blanks for me and left me in awe. His photographs definitely captivated us. We will definitely be using Naveed’s services again. Thank you so much Naveed, we could not have asked for more!

We hired Naveed and his team as the photographers for our August wedding at the Bridges Golf Club. Naveed and Halim and Oliver were excellent photographers and such a joy to work with.
We scheduled an engagement shoot for 6am in SF and boy was is freezing out but working with Naveed and Halim made it a breeze. Their personalities and humor kept us laughing through chattering teeth and looking at the photos, no one could tell we were practically frozen.
After an awesome experience during the engagement shoot, we were so excited for the photos of our wedding. Naveed and Halim did an amazing job and the photos were gorgeous!! They captured all the details of the wedding and made us look phenomenal! During such a whirlwind day, we’ll never be able to remember all the little things, but having the photos Naveed and Halim took, we’ll be able to relive that wonderful day again and again. We couldn’t have asked for more and we were overjoyed with the work Naveed and his team produced!!

Naveed is a one of a kind photographer. I had booked him for an engagement session as well as my 2 wedding events. I absolutely LOVED his work. Naveed as a keen eye with lighting, poses, and editing. He really spends time getting to know the couple and takes in consideration the type of poses you would like while building a relationship with you. As far as the photographs go- there were plenty to choose from and my husband and I had a hard time choosing only a few to display at the wedding- we loved them all! Also his turn-around time as far as editing and getting you the photos is very quick but done very well! I don’t think I could have chosen a better photographer to work with. Not only do I refer him to everyone else I know, but I plan to have him capture future memories for my husband and I. Naveed is an outstanding photographe rand he also ends up being a close friend after working with him. Thanks for capturing all the great memories for me

Naveed was a pleasure to work with. I’m really glad we selected him as our photographer. We were lucky to have him come from SF to San Diego to be there for our wedding day. He created beautiful photos that will always remind us of our lovely memories. I look forward to having him photograph our special moments in the future. Just set up a meeting with him, you won’t regret it. I get so many compliments on our photos! He books up quick so make sure you inquire early for your date!
