hope you guys are doing well. Following is the testimonial, sorry for the delay but its been crazy busy;
“After an unsatisfactory and somewhat disappointing nikah shoot, I started looking for wedding photographers a few months before the wedding date, since like every girl, I wanted the memories of my big day to be perfect. I did not want a conventional [studio] shoot with the same angles and shots that you see in most of the wedding albums of Pakistani couples. During my research, I came across a facebook page titled Rammal’s Photography and Digital Art Hub and instantly fell in love with her style. I met with her in January to check out her work in detail and discuss ideas and ended up booking a casual shoot.
Initially I wanted two photographers for both the shoot and event coverage [in case one of them messed up; yes, I was majorly stressed after the nikah shoot]. Despite considering and going through the portfolios of almost all photographers in Islamabad, I chose Rammal to cover my wedding [including the getting ready session, bridal shoot and event coverage] because of her unique style and the exceptional quality of her work. She arrived for the getting ready session at the saloon and immediately started clicking. The best part was that I didn’t have to pose. Except for the camera flash, you wouldn’t have known that she was there.
From the saloon we went to Islamabad Club and the event venue where she did the bridal shoot. One of the best things about my bridal shoot was that we [me and my husband] were really comfortable. This is vital since if you’re uncomfortable it is evident in the photographs and secondly because my husband is very camera shy. Then came the event where she captured every moment expertly with her camera. Rammal did our casual shoot on the day after our wedding and on my request gave us all the photographs to choose from in a CD. We were most impressed with even the untreated photographs and had a really hard time choosing the ones we wanted to get printed for the album since we wanted all of them.
I’ve been meaning to get another casual shoot done with Rammal which has not materialized yet ONLY because we live in a different country. The albums were absolutely perfect and even I could not find any fault in them [despite being a perfectionist very finicky about details]. Simply put, I could not have chosen a better photographer to preserve the memories of the best and most special day of my life. Thanks Rammal for making it possible for me to remember it vividly in such a beautiful way!
