GET TO KNOW ME
Photography has always been in my heart and part of who I am.
I knew when I was 12 years old that I wanted to be a photographer - there was something about stopping a moment in time and being able to look back on it years later that drew me in. I was that middle school kid who always brought a camera to school and would develop 4 copies of every photograph and hand them out to my friends so we could all hang them up in our lockers.
I spent my summers at photography camp learning how to develop film in a dark room and was told I had an "eye" for framing a photograph. Back then, being a photographer was more of a pipe dream than a realistic career option.
For a while, I gave up on my photography dreams and took the traditional route to University and a full-time job - but my passion for photography was still well and alive. One brave day I decided to walk into Henry's and buy a professional camera. The rest is history.
Fifteen years later and Revel is still my labour of love. I give it everything I've got. I made a vow the day I walked away from my full-time job in 2017 that I would create something beautiful, that I would exceed the expectations of every client who trusted me with their memories and that I would focus wholeheartedly on the love and connection between lovers, families and friends. After all these years, I am proud to continue to keep the vows I made that day.
TRAVELLING FAR & WIDE
My years of travelling the globe inspired me, immersed me in unique and beautiful cultures, opened my eyes to the intricacies of architecture and design, and made me a better documentarian and artist.
I've snowboarded the Matterhorn in June and backpacked across Cambodia - but my greatest adventure of all has been moving my family from Toronto to Calgary in 2021. The mountains were calling us to come and stay.
MY LITTLE PEOPLE
Reyah and Laith, are my everything. They make me laugh, bring me joy and inspire me to be the best mother, entrepreneur and all around human that I can be.
Specifically one with crystal clear blue water, white sand and ideally no one else around. Water puts me at ease like nothing else.
This guy. My husband, Haris. He's as awesome, insightful, caring and entertaining as he is handsome. He's also a talented filmmaker (the lead filmmaker for Revel) and the best dad around.
I love what I do. I love this business that I have created. I love everything about the incredible people I get to work with every day. I love the joy I get to bring to couples every time they get to relive their incredible day because I carefully documented it for them with all my heart.
Our clients can often be found enjoying a romantic dinner in a softly lit restaurant. They are lovers of travel with a taste for fine wine and they have an appreciation for the simple beauty of natural light.
