After 9 years, 179 weddings, countless learning experiences and all of the beautiful people I've met along the way, following yesterday evening's wedding with Kulsoom & Nazish - the last of the season for me - I wanted to share that I've decided to hang up my wedding photographer hat. Thank you to all of the fabulous couples that have trusted me to capture their wedding day for them. It's been a beautiful journey so far and I'm eager to see what the road ahead has in store.
Although I will no longer be photographing weddings, I am still offering portrait session services as well as working on my own personal photography based projects, so be sure to reach out if you're interested in connecting.
I pray that the road ahead is joyous and bright insha'Allah/God-Willing.

A smokey portrait of the lovely Shahzia in July. She was the lone enthusiast that attended the meet-up after I wrapped up shooting for Beyond A Label; since I had a smoke grenade and my camera handy, it was great to get her in front of the camera for some smokey photo playtime!

His and hers details from Zaib & Ahmed's wedding last month. It was lovely to have a slow, quiet portrait session with them before their reception that day.

A smokey shot of the fabulous @ruaelkasheef a couple of weekends ago following her session for Beyond A Label. Being the writer and poet that she is, Rua shared beautiful reflections along with this image: "Reflecting on this smoke bomb I remember that the only thing we have control over is what we release into this world. What we give will grow and perpetuate just like this smoke did. Just like this smoke it becomes a permanent part of the environment, subject to all the elements. Just like this smoke, we may try to plan its trajectory but it's ultimate destination is one very much out of our hands.
The smoke was beautiful! Let us try to beautify amidst all the mess. Let truth surround and engulf our world and infect everything it can. Let us inhale it deeply and let the love recycle and recharge our spirits....and when you we are recharged, let out this beautiful fire again...and again...and again 💜

Allahu Akbar!" #portrait #photograph #smoke #smokey #smokegrenade #torontophoto #photography #art #artist #bethelove #muslimah #blackmuslimah #blackgirlmagic #blackandmuslim #hijab #hijabi #sisterhood #community #connect #create #inspire #toronto #tdot #the6ix #poet #writer #goodvibes #reflection

Another shot of the fabulous @ruaelkasheef from Sunday's session for Beyond A Label. She was the perfect fit for the 70th and final session of the series, masha'Allah!
The more opportunities I have to meet and connect with Muslims from ethnic and cultural backgrounds that differ from my own, the more I realize that we each will experience our Muslim-ness differently depending on how we appear to the world, especially when aspects of one's social identity intersect with gender and race. Those of us who are privileged in those categories have a responsibility to not only check our privilege but also hold space for our brothers and sisters who experience racism and erasure of the faith-based aspects of their identity on account of their race.
I pray that we all develop a genuine capacity to connect with, learn from and love one another, insha'Allah.
