Real Love. Perfectly Imperfect.
Messy but Beautiful.

Let's capture your love story together.

. . .

You want your love story told. You want it to be real and raw, and to represent the true beauty of your day, with a focus on authentic emotions. You want your memories documented in a beautiful, natural and timeless way. Choosing the right photographer and filmmaker matters to you.

We offer a truly unique and intimate service for our clients. We focus on building real relationships. Our clients quickly become our friends. Wedding shoots turn into maternity shoots, which turn into newborn shoots, and eventually annual family photos. Because we are small, you are not just another name in our database. You matter.

Meet Azra & Haris

Observers and Documenters.

Who we are: We are Azra and Haris from Revel Photography & Films – a boutique photography and film studio serving Calgary, Banff, Canmore, Airdrie, Cochrane, Red Deer and pretty much every other corner of Alberta and the globe. We have spent the last 14 years capturing countless beautiful love stories and have made just as many friends along the way. We’re a husband and wife team, happily married for 10 years, best friends, and parents to two adorable little humans – Reyah and Laith.

Our history: Revel Photography & Films (orginally Face Photography) was born in Toronto in 2007 by me (Azra) and my sister Dina. You’ll see her name all over our reviews! She and I ran the company together until 2016 when we decided we’d prefer to run our own indepedant photography businesses. We still shoot together all the time and Dina has often been the second photographer at Revel weddings! In 2018, I brought my husband on to the team. He’s an accomplished filmmaker in his own right and loves the change of pace and excitement of shooting weddings by my side.

In 2021 we decided to make the big move from Ontario to Alberta! The mountains were calling our names and we were looking for our next big adventure. We’re looking forward to meeting many new friends, discovering beautiful new venues and exploring what Calgary and Alberta have to offer.

Our style: We love recording love, real love. That’s our jam. We capture you, the authentic you. Our photos and films are natural, clean, bright and crisp and we are completely obsessed with mountains, beaches and adventurous weddings of any kind.  We shoot digital but mimic the true and timeless look of film in our editing room. We work with you to make sure you are well prepared for your shoot, know exactly what to expect, and that you look and feel your very best.

Giving back: In recent years we have realized the importance of using business as a force for good. We believe that having a social impact matters and so we donate a portion of our profits to charity. We’ve chosen Plan Canada‘s program that helps end child marriage as our charity of choice. It seems fitting that as we photograph the love stories of those who have found and chosen to marry “the one” we help support children being forced to marry at such young ages, without any choice at all.

Get to know Azra

Lead Photographer & Editor

I'm the one you'll reach when you send an email, meet with for a consultation, shoot your engagment session, lead the photography on your wedding day, edit your photos and deliver your final album. We will spend a lot of time together and get to know eachother really well... It'll be SO MUCH FUN! In 14 years I have never missed a wedding or even been late. Even though I consider myself super friendly and fun, I can also get down to business and get a big roudy family to buckle down for some awesome family photos in record time!

My specialty is making people feel comfortable in front of the camera and finding your best angles... so you can look your very best in every shot. I am also really detailed in terms of preparing you for the big day, helping you figure out the best timeline and ensuring you know everything there is to know about setting your day up for photography success!

I can't wait to meet you and hear more about how I can capture your love story ♡

Filmmaker and Second Photographer

I'm the lead filmmaker here at Revel and also one of our second photographers. When on the job, I consider myself a wedding documentarian - completely focused on capturing the authenticy and big moments of your day.

I have over 20 years of experience behind the camera, have shot multiple feature documentary films and filmed for companies like RBC, TSN, Shaw, Sportsnet, PGA, CFL and many more. I have quite a few weddings under my belt now and really enjoy the opportunity to be creative and work with couples to find interesting and unique ways to tell thier story. My style is unique, modern, authentic, natural and very much documentary focused.

You can rest assured I won't get in your way during your day and that I'll work seamlessly around your Revel photography team - over the years we have learned which way to move and where to go so we can ensure you get the best shots and footage of every important moment.

I look forward to connecting with you and learning what matters most to you about your love story and how I can best capture your relationship and big day.

That's enough about us. We want to get to know you! Let's go out for coffee and get to know each other. Get in touch and let's make this happen!
