Cinefilms : Gradiators’ 15

grad1
On a cold February day we met the most excited group of people, their joy on graduating was very very evident on their faces! some were so excited that they were really at a loss for words to describe how they were feeling, and we (Rammal & Nabia) know that feeling all too well! It’s a moment a student works towards for 4 years, and at the end of the journey it can leave you speechless, knowing you’ve accomplished something worthwhile in this life can do that.

That’s the kind of energy and emotions we wanted to capture, this time in film. The excitement of spending the last few days together with your friends, the onset of new beginnings, a proud feeling of making this far and saying goodbye to people you’ve seen everyday for 4 years. We love capturing raw emotions, it’s always about capturing people at the most personal level to really let them sparkle on screen!

Sara, Maham, Akram, Safa, Sakeena, Mati, zara, Isra, Palwisha, Soha, Waqar, Nimra and Samawia are now starting a new chapter in their lives and we were so glad we could be there to capture these special moments and help them make this a memory to remember for the rest of their lives!

To the batch of Bahria University 2015 : Congrats!

Enjoy this video!

 

 

Nyla + Harris : It’s in the details

Hey Guys,

Our website got a makeover.  We think its as pretty as the event we are blogging about.

Writing your story is easy but telling it in tiny meticulous details and getting to capture it is magic! We encourage all our clients to get creative and personalise their events because it’s a reflection of their personalities and what makes their pictures unique.

Nyla and Harris’s unique connection to each other translates so effortlessly in our pictures, adding more sparkle to their fantastic fairytale. Here at their 1st Anniversary we’ve managed to capture their romance in every detail.

Hope you guys enjoyed these images by Rammal and Nabia Mehmud and feel their intimacy.

Kinza & Ammar 12.12.12

Once a upon a sunny december..

From one of our escapades in Karachi, Pakistan.  We would love to share Kinza’s decandent ‘Glam it up’  Session.

Having lived forver in Islamabad, we werent used to the concept of a sunny december, as its always bleak or cloudy and raining 80% of the time in Islamabad.
But Karachi is sunny and wind =D So, now Karachi is added to our list of happy places.

So, We reached Kinza’s place for some morning crazyness with the girls and & *Tea* and then left off with the exuberant bride, her sister and best friend in tow for the Salon.

It was time to put on the wedding shoes & dance the night away! =D

Glam it up Rammal Mehmud photography Jimmy Choo

 

Rammal & I were scurrying around in ninja mode, clicking every detail also making sure we werent in the staff’s way <3

Kinza chose to wear a ‘Tabbasum Mughal Bridal’ attire and did it justice! from full view of the flowey reds, to the details of kaam, to the tassles,  nothing was overlooked!

We headed over the Kinza, who was getting done with her Makeup (which unfortunately we werent allowed to document) however, the Salon staff was very cooperative regardless.
Whooo!  how Gorgeous is she?! 

 

This wedding was a blast <3
We wish Kinza & Ammar, the best of both the worlds.

Ameen

 

::Summer love:: Sneak peek!

Samar & Taimoor ♥ 30.06.12

Samar met with us to discuss her engagement details and to book us a few months back. Her engagement dates kept on changing so that was kind of like a blessing in disguise because it gave us a better sense of the person that she was. We at VRM, like to personalize each photography session according to your personality, we don’t believe in assembly lines and sessions that look the same as every other bridal pic. It’s your day & YOU deserve to sparkle!

The cool ambiance and gentle ambiance of Abbotabad lured us into booking Samar’s engagement shoot. It was delightful being welcomed into her family just like one of her friends. We thank you and your families for loving us they way that you all do =) We are sharing with you one of our favorite shot from her day. I used the gates leading to her home for this shot, as the architecture looked subtle and symmetrical.. She loved the fact that we included her home in her photo-session. I think being a female, the power of bonding with your client is much-much higher, I know exactly what they’re feeling at times, how to calm the nerves as brides are always sentimental about leaving their home.  And, I totally get that! <3

You will not beleive it when I tell you this, but Samar got ready at home. YEP! no professional Salon, no pro make up artist. Her gorgeous sis & cousins were pretty much pros 😉 dont u think!?!  She added the glamour factor and the colors that were lacking!

What are your thoughts on this?!

10,000th fan GIVEAWAY!

I remember how narcissist the word ‘Fanpage’ used to sound at the beginning. I almost didn’t make one but Nabia forced me to create it when our photography business took off. We were one of the first few photography fan pages from Islamabad and still remember the first few fans, the commenters and our very first competition! 🙂
We are very thankful to everyone who sincerely supported & loved us throughout this journey. So thankful that words fell short and we were bound to announce yet another ‘GIVEAWAY’, like the last year but – with a NEW twist.

Sooo the procedure is Easy-breezy! 😀
+ Invite your friends over and if they end up being the 10,000th fan – you and him/her would get to avail our newest photography package, “Music & Lyrics!”
+ Music & Lyrics contain 20 shots (5×7 prints) based on your favorite song!
+ The duration of the shoot would be 1-2 hours.
+ A video-montage of the shots would be created and uploaded on the page! 🙂
+ The winners would be featured on the fan page, our blog and on our website.

P.s: Do you know VRM-HUB would be turning 2 next month? 😀

Till my next post,
Stay photogenic,
R.

‘Music & Lyrics’ is strictly copyrighted to Rammal Mehmud. The concept & the name of the package is ours and shouldn’t be replicated. In case this is forged and seen on other photography pages, serious action will  be taken.

Its a Love story – Amna & Sajid’s Sneak Peak!

I feel so privileged when I get a chance to document a couple SOH-IN-LOVE. It was awesome working with these two childhood sweethearts. Almost like I had met them long before.

Amna booked me in April from UK, 5 months before her wedding so I’m available on her dates! ^_^ Later we met in August when she came back and we instantly clicked! After Flipping through hundreds of different wedding photojournalist magazines, She told me how she had always imagined her BIG day to be photographed – And chose me.

“My Venue wasn’t decided, my dress wasn’t ordered – but I KNEW the photographer had to be YOU.”
Were her words.

It was my first DIY wedding, which I utterly enjoyed! 😀

Later I photographed their bridal lurrve session just the way I love – ofcource during the golden love hourrr! 😀 I was HELL Happie that day and so glad to be a part of their heartfelt occasion!

Wait up for the complete blog!
=)
Till then,
Stay photogenic,
R.

Cause baby you’re a firework: Anam & Abid’s sneak peak!

One fine, but blistering-hot-pakistani-summer-noon, I was contacted by Anam to shoot her Engagement event. As she was in the States at that time, we couldn’t arrange a meet-up so she booked me to save her date and then a week before her engagement visited me with Abid (Her fiance). We had a great session, I showed them my sample albums and talked about the the style preferred they’d event to be shot. It was fun discussing the nitty gritties. They were appreciative of the quality of my albums & work, I was over the moon =D

It was a joy to be around people who love each other. I pray they always be together! {Amen} <3And guess who? 😀 Nabia and me were high on the positive energy in the room and we were clicking mad! =D
Post Engagement celebrations, it was so much fun to be a part of their day! 😀

Wait up for the ACTUAL blog! 🙂
Till then,
Stay photogenic,

{You & Me: Nauroze & Rida’s Reception}

Cause it’s you and me and all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to prove
And it’s you and me and all of the people
And I don’t know why, I can’t keep my eyes off of you
~ Lifehouse.

On a very rainy evening, I was visited by Nauroze. He had called time and again and been a persistent client; who wanted to book me as his ‘wedding photographer’ for his Reception. I was already pre-booked with a three day in a row wedding prior his date so I was a little uncertain to take his booking but decided to meet him in person and decide. The meeting went smoothly and he an aficionado for my ‘Moment-o-graphy.’ Since, we were on the same wavelength I decided that it would be great fun!

On another very chilly and extremely foggy night, I reached Regalia ahead of the time (G-6) for the Reception coverage.  What I saw was very overwhelming, Noroze and Rida had a connection; they could read each other’s minds and they talked via looks and secret smiles. Their comfort level assured me that I was here to do a great job capturing their love for each other.

Her shy smile deepened when she heard him. When his eyes fell on her, joy danced in his eyes. When she wasn’t around, he couldn’t resist a chance to bring up her name..

Hes the kind of guy who’ll put you at ease with his confidence and charm…and he clearly knows how to make her melt & Rida, You’re Gorrrrrrge, f’real! MashAllah! 🙂

Noroz & Rida: You are two of the most wonderful people and I felt incredibly lucky to document your wedding day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart of sharing your lives (and amazing families) with me and allowing me to see just how promising your future is together.

Stay photogenic,
R.

Hello VRM-HUB! :)

We have decided to add a land-line to our mode of communication. =) However, you can still text and call on our cell number i.e 03325510312.

P.s: Please remember that Sundays are off.
^_^

 

Stay photogenic,

The meet-up guideline: How to book me!

Hey guys,
As you know I prefer meeting my clients beforehand; it serves as an ice-breaking session. We also get to know whether our personalities click and if we would want to seal the deal.
So since I’d be resuming meetings from next week , I decided to compile this post which would serve as a pre-requisite for meet-ups.

Before coming to see me, if you go through these – it would be AWESOME, since we’d both end up being on the same page.

We, at Rammal Mehmud Photography are quite indulgent in On-location Sessions merely because:

  • We believe it contributes in building a bond with your wedding day.
  • We want to incorporate that into our moment-o-graphy; which means we document each moment in between the moments by utilizing your venue’s ambiance and locations to the max.
  • If your venue isn’t picturesque enough. You are to make alternate arrangements. We shall not be held responsible.
  • We only offer photography services, so we are not liable if you’re not able to find the perfect point for the shoot. We however, can visit the venue with you before the shoot to generate ideas for the bridal session –  which too depends on the fact that you have confirmed your booking by making a deposit of 50% of the total amount.
  • We do not change backdrops and superimpose elements in your photo-shoots pictures. We are quite engaged in ‘On location’ shoots which entail scenic gardens, pool sides, hotel lobbies and anything to do with making your shots stand out. No – hotel rooms do not fall under this category (UNLESS we want to make use of the mirror).
  • Please follow my blog and my Like page, to check out my style of photography. I am ME and I own my own style. If you want me to copy someone’s then I’m sorry you’re definitely at the wrong place. I do appreciate ‘ideas’ but only hire me for – ME.
  • Please do-not compare Me or my packages with other photographers, theres a reason why I’m different.
  • All prices of the packages are final, no discounts will be offered.

  1. Before the actual meetup, it would be best that you catch up with us on *Skype*. My id being *vrm.photography*. During that session, we can talk a bit bout your day, how you want everything to be and OF-COURSE the albums that we include in the package.
  2. Before paying for the selected bridal photography package, please ask for the *Terms & Conditions* form, so that we can discuss it together (Regarding your opinion on it)  so there is no ambiguity at both ends. We would expect you to take a print out and submit the filled form, 2 weeks before your event.
  3. Do expect a mail from our end, post your 50% deposition. The mail would enlist the contents of the package  for both of us (in black & white), just to let you know of what you’ve paid for and what I’m expected of.
  4. The Hi-resolution pictures shall be stored in our archiving system for a Year from wedding date. On approaching the 1 year anniversary; you can either choose to pay us an archiving fee or buy the Hi-resolution lot. If either option isn’t chosen then the folder shall be removed from our backup.
  5. Please go through this old post of mine too.

Hope this helps you make an informed decision! =)

Stay photogenic,
R.
