My husband and I had the pleasure of having Arifah photograph our long-awaited, special day in the summer of 2013.
My friends and family know how very uncomfortable I am having my photo taken, wedding nerves didn't help either! Arifah was extremely personable and relaxed during the day, which helped me relax. She seemed to know the right thing to say at the right time and was so discreet that half the time I wasn't even aware of being photographed which is exactly how I prefer it and how I wanted to capture our day. When it was time to take charge of group and family wedding photo's she had no hesitation in being heard above the din all the while throwing in some crowd pleasing gags which relaxed everyone.
Needless to say we are ecstatic with our wedding photos and everyone who has seen them have commented on how amazing and imaginative they are and that we must be so happy with them.
I wouldn't hesitate in using Arifah again for any photography needs and, in fact, have done for a shoot with my two sons where she, again, captured the special moments for the family album.

We had the pleasure of having Arifah photograph our wedding in Sydney. Her enthusiasm, level of professionalism and ability to work with different personalities on the day was to the highest standards. She was friendly, and made the whole process easy, and we felt she really catered to what we wanted.
Arifah was very personable and was able to manage and arrange everyone whilst creating a relaxed atmosphere. We couldn’t thank you enough Arifah for our beautiful wedding photos that really captured our special day, and will continue to bring back such wonderful memories. We have no hesitations in letting all our family and friends know about the great service we received on our big day!

Your compassion for your job really shone through in our photos. It’s the small things that people may forget or not see at the time, which made our photos so so touching and special.
Everybody commented on how awesome our photographer was...so keep going, you certainly are doing something you love and enjoy. We are very grateful.

Arifah was absolute perfection. Marc and I had the pleasure of having her as our wedding photographer for our winter wedding in July 2014.
We wanted a true reflection of the love and fun shared by us and others on our wedding day and Arifah was able to encapsulate this perfectly.
During the day, she went above and beyond to make our experience fun and relaxed. Arifah was happy for us to follow our own (sometimes wacky) ideas but was also able to gently redirect us towards getting the best photos.
It blew us away how she managed to capture every special moment from a variety of different perspectives throughout the day and into the evening. At times, we didn't even notice her snapping away. Our family and friends are just as rapt as we are with the end results and have all commented on the originality and high quality of the pictures.
I wouldn't hesitate to book Arifah again and highly recommend her as a wedding photographer.

We had the very pleasant and fortunate experience of being photographed by Arifah for our second pregnancy and family shoot.
When we arrived everything was neatly organized and set up, and we hit the road running. Arifah is excellent in how she gets you to pose very naturally and feeling comfortable and at ease all the way through.
We had so much fun together and we received brilliant pictures.
Thank you so much Arifah! We can gladly recommend Arifah's services to anyone.
