          Fatima is a great professional and an incredible photographer. From the moment I saw her Facebook page and website, I knew that I had to book her for my wedding. The lighting, attention to details, and intimacy that she captures truly exceeded my expectations. Furthermore, Fatima helped me cope with the wedding process by providing awesome feedback and advice - I consider her a friend now.

          To all that are considering hiring Fatima to photograph your special occasion, DO IT! We need to continue to support woman of color start-ups and businesses.

          THANK YOU, FATIMA!

          Intimate

          Wedding

          Fatima is so much more than a wedding photographer. Her photos exemplify her innate gift of capturing love. We hired her to photograph our wedding. She was everything you could want—extremely prompt, sharp, artistic, and warm—but what sets Fatima apart is her genuine drive and passion to document and make sacred your relationship. She met with us several times before the wedding to get to know me and my partner: not only to form a sense of intimacy between us and her, but for her understand our love so she knew how to document us in that special way. That drive is something you can’t buy. Fatima is truly special, and we are so blessed to have her in our lives and to have captured our wedding.

          Fatima was very professional. Not only were her photos breathtaking, she considered every minuscule detail of our wedding. She communicated very well. Her photos were delivered way ahead of schedule—even though she had a wedding the day before and an event the day after, she delivered a sneak peak of 30 photos the day after our wedding. All of our guests and family have reached out to compliment her charisma, passion, and her photos.

          I just want to say, thank you so much. You literally captured us in such a beautiful way. I’m so happy with the outcome and words can’t describe the beauty and love that you put into your work. Because that’s the thing this isn’t your work, it’s your passion which makes everything just so perfect. LOVED that you pushed us out of our shells so that you can really capture us. Can’t wait to see you in January for our day. Thank you 💕

          Family

          Session

          I wanted to take family photos for my son’s 1st birthday and do it in the comfort of our new home. I saw Fatima’s work through a friend (she was their wedding photographer) and completely fell in love! We’ve taken family photos before but nothing compares to Fatima’s work. We’ve gotten SO many compliments on the quality of the photos from our session. I highly recommend Fatima!

          The overall experience was very smooth and well organized. She responded promptly, was always friendly and professional, and the booking itself was easy. We were most impressed during the session. She really helped guide us. She even recommended we do silly moves that made us feel totally awkward but the photos tell a different story! She captured the best moments. Seriously, so in awe by the quality of her work and skills. Definitely booking her again and will recommend to friends and family.

          Shooting

          Experience

          Sooo in love with Fatima! She made us so comfortable in our first shoot together as a couple, which is probably the most important part! She was making us crack up and just be so real in front of the camera. We had no idea what to do and Fatima just guided us through the whole thing making it feel so natural. She captured our love for the way it really is, and none of it felt staged or something that we weren’t. Just pure fun & joy! She’s very warm & genuine, and so pleasant to work with. She’s more than just a Photographer, she’s truly someone I would invite over for dinner again and again! Fatima, thank you thank you thank you! I cannot stress enough how lucky we are to know you and have you capture such an intimate moment! We love you!

          Love

          Fatima is the absolute best. She photographed our engagement session and our wedding day. Both exceeding our expectations (which were high to begin with since we had already heard so many amazing things and had seen her work). For the engagement session, she helped us out with pointers on what to wear (we arent very fashion savvy lol) and during the session we were so comfortable that she was able to capture the most beautiful photos, that didnt look posed at all. She doesnt take the "stand and pose" route for photographing and it results in really natural looking images.

          For our wedding she was instrumental in getting things flowing (my husband to be and I were both sick the week of our wedding so we were unorganized messes ). Fatima goes above and beyond in ensuring the best parts of your day get remembered. And if I could give her 100 stars I would. Thanks for being so amazing fatima! We love you!

          Experience

          Fatima is such a warm, charismatic, and passionate soul. It’s eminent that she works hard to cultivate her craft and to capture her client’s most authentic moments. I had no idea it’d be possible to capture the beautiful fragility, strength, and vulnerability that comes with a relationship on camera, much less to make it one of the most artful experiences I’ve taken part of. Fatima communicates her vision and is flexible within the moment to make both her clients and situation feel safe, content, and happy. It was so easy to shoot with her, we honestly forgot at some points that a camera was being pointed at us! She’s the most amazing editor too - shooting in the dark is hard, but she knew exactly what lighting the shots needed and edited our shoot so SO incredibly quickly. I can wholly and sincerely recommend her for future clients, shoots, and events. She is so incredibly talented, humble, kind, and wonderful inside and out.

          Proposal

          I don’t even know where to begin! Fatima was apart of the most special day of my life, and all thanks to her, I have the most beautiful pictures to cherish with all my loved ones forever and ever! Besides my now fiancé, she was the only person to know that I was getting proposed to on the day she took pictures of us. She did a great job keeping the secret AND an even better job of documenting the entire day! The photos that she took are everything I’ve hoped for and more. I am beyond thankful to her and the incredible talent that she has. I highly HIGHLY RECOMMEND her! She is incredible and I promise you won’t regret having her take your photos. I still can’t thank her enough!
