My Wedding PORTFOLIO >
say hello! »
I was born in Kisumu. Kenya however,  I moved to Edmonton in 1975 and have called it home ever since. I've been capturing emotions for over 35 years and have been documenting weddings for the last 15+ years.

Some Fun Facts about me
  • I have 2 amazing girls 18 and 13 years old.  
  • We also have a little dog.  She's part Afin-Pincer and part Yorkshire Terrier.
  • I enjoy long walks, so much so that I'd rather walk 45 minutes than drive 5 minutes.
  • I'm totally into personal and professional growth and have been listening to great teachers such as the late Wayne Dyer and Late Bob Proctor.

Your Wedding & Portrait Photographer

Hey, I'm Arif!

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.

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.

My Favorite Things

Edmonton, AB Canada

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!

Jamie & Kieren

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!

Heather & Grant

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.

Kelly & Robert

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!

Carmen & Guy

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
