I've been fascinated with capturing emotions through photography since my high school days. This passion led me to a professional journey in the field spanning almost 20 years, with a particular focus on weddings for the past 15.

I photograph newly engaged couples who are looking to build trust and synergy with a photographer. This synergy will help guide them throughout the process and ensure that they look so amazing in their images that they will want to showcase them on their walls. The relationship we build will not only be superseded by the wedding photography but also family sessions for years to come.

My photography style is a unique blend of photojournalistic and traditional poses, capturing timeless expressions and the overlooked aspects of your special day. Beyond weddings, my services extend to engagement sessions, family photos, corporate headshots, and event photography.

Your Wedding & Portrait Photographer

Hey, I'm Arif!

My Wedding PORTFOLIO >

As your guide, I ensure that every moment of your special day is captured immaculately. I will provide suggestions when needed and aim to capture the day's emotions as they naturally unfold. I firmly believe that the beauty of these moments lies within their authenticity.
In fact, one grateful bride shared "Arif was absolutely wonderful to work with. .. He was so calm and took his time to make sure he got the right shot.... We were really nervous, but he gave wonderful directions and helped us so naturally along the way. It was such a fun experience working with him and the pictures were awesome! We definitely recommend! "

Apart from photography, my interests include hiking, biking, reading, and personal growth. I find immense value in the teachings of luminaries like the late Wayne Dyer and Bob Proctor and strive to apply their wisdom to my own life. I am a proud father of two wonderful girls, aged 18 and 14, and a pet parent to a lovely little dog, who's part Affenpinscher and part Yorkshire Terrier.

I look forward to sharing my passion for photography with you and capturing your precious moments that will last a lifetime.

Here's a snapshot into my world.

A Little Behind The Scenes Of My Life

Going  for an unplanned road trip with my loved ones.  As my kids get older, they are appreciating nature and all its abundance as much as I do.  Being present and mindful in nature, breathing the fresh mountain air and simply just being.   A few places we enjoy getting away to are: Canmore AB, Banff AB, Jasper AB and Kelowna BC.

Jasper National Park Alberta

Weekend Excursions

I've always made spending time with my girls a priority.  I absolutely love being a dad.  I've made it a priority to spend as much time as possible with them.  From the start, whether it was taking them for walks, bike rides, or tobogganing,  As they've gotten older, family time has taken on a different look.  More recently it has taken the form of going to the gym and road trips.  The silly image on this page was taken just before we went on a zip-line in Jasper.

Family time

My Family

I've been on a personal growth journey for a few years.  I've been studying and applying the teachings of the amazing teachers such as the late Bob Proctor, late Wayne Dyer and Abraham Hicks.

I've developed a morning routine that includes mediation, prayer, affirmations and journaling.

Arif was fantastic to work with. He listened to our requests as to what we want and delivered all that and more. He took pictures of all our friends and family and had a perfect balance of posed shots and innovative candid shots that really captured the mood of the day. He really helped to preserve our special day so we will remember it forever. He was professional, pleasant and very friendly! All our guests kept telling us how awesome our photographer was. We couldn't be happier and highly recommend him to everyone looking for a fantastic photographer!

I cannot say enough about Arif. Not only does he take amazing photos - he is also attentive, kind, professional, warm and passionate about what he does. Going the extra mile doesn't even cover it. He followed up with us before the wedding, attended our rehearsal and followed up several times afterward. I highly recommend this talented gentleman! You will not be disappointed.

Teresa & Steven

Right from the beginning we found Arif to be professional and attentive. Before the wedding he was clear in finalizing details and noting special moments we wanted captured. He came with us to our venue and we discussed where we might like pictures taken, he took our ideas into consideration and offered his opinion on what would look good. He also looked at technical elements such as lighting in our venue. On the day we found him to be calm, professional and efficient. When we got our pictures back (which was fairly quickly) we knew we had chosen the right photographer. He had captured the special moments and feel of the day through the posed as well as candid photos. We couldn't be more pleased with his work, the follow up and communication throughout the planning process as well as the follow up after our wedding. We highly recommend Arif - our pictures are fabulous!

I hired Arif for our Wedding Photographer Services and couldn't be happier. I found Arif extremely professional and patient during a hectic busy wedding day. Even during all the chaos - he knew what shots he wanted to get, and demanded the best quality out of himself. He kept the wedding party organized and continue to work with all individuals and children to keep thing on track. Even when things didn't go as planned at times, he was so very flexible to our requests - it all turned out amazing. If you truly want great service from someone you can count on and trust -- I highly recommend Arif!!!!

Arif photographed part of our Indian Wedding ceremonies this July. His communication was quick and helpful, he was very flexible with what we wanted, and he got the photos back to us very quickly. The photos turned out great, we love them!

Arif had done our wedding this past August and we could not be any happier. I spent quite some time "shopping" around for photographers, emailed several, heard back from some, did not hear back from others. From the beginning Arif has been quick to respond and address any questions or concerns that we had. He has been quick to deal with any minor touch ups on the pictures that we have requested and everything has exceeded our expectation. Feedback from friends and family on our pictures has been amazing. Arif was amazing to deal with, takes amazing pictures and allowed us to have as much fun or be as serious as we wanted to for our pictures making it an amazing experience. I recommend Arif with the highest regards and could not have asked for a better experience or better photos.

Awesome photographer from day one. Arif allowed us to go where we wanted and we were a little fly by the seat of our pants. He always asked for our input, whereas as many of the photographers I contacted prior to him were more concerned about fulfilling their vision. He was with us from the get go and captured all the moments beautifully. I especially love the Candid shots, for you can truly see how much fun our guests were having and not just posing. I would recommend him to everyone we know
