About Ayesha Rahman

Hiya I’m Ayesha (you say it “eye – sha”).

I have a habit of overly use the following words – a lot… Amazing, Awesome, Lovely, Actually, Totally, Right and So. I’ve been considering adding the word “mint” back into my vocab though. I mean I am Mancunian so I can right?!

I’m a massive Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino fan. The Grand Budapest Hotel and Pulp Fiction are my favourite films ever.

I adore Ibiza. I’ve been more times than I can remember. I’m still in mourning for Space nightclub.

I’m proud to say that I have actually hassled the Hoff – yes, yes I have.

I love a dance off.

I’ve rediscovered an obsession with vinyl – suggestions totally welcome please.

My food weaknesses are crisps and dips and chilli sauce. Although not together!

I totally laugh when people fall over – sorry! But in my defence I also fall over a lot and I laugh at myself too.

I pretty much say yes to most things because I have a serious bout of the FOMO’s.

My passport is well used and if I could jump on a plane this afternoon and have an adventure in another country then I would. Ooh where to go…

I find myself seriously funny – haha!

I always look guilty… no matter what.

I love an exclamation mark and I’m not ashamed of it!!

If my house was on fire I’d rescue a photo of my dad, my box of epic stationary and my Valentinos.

Procrastination is an illness yes? Well I think I have it, or do I, not sure actually, maybe I do but I think I’ll have to think about it some more.

About Ayesha Rahman

Who am I?

My love for photography has always been there but it really came about after a trip to India where I’d taken my new Christmas present, a DSLR camera, with me and I snapped away. I love the images from that trip but they also frustrated me. I knew they could have been better if only I knew what I was doing and how to use my camera properly. And so my quest to get better at photography began. Not long after a friend of a friend asked me if I would take her wedding photographs. I accepted of course and shot my first ever wedding back in 2012 and I’ve never looked back!

 

 

About Ayesha Rahman

In 2016 I got the most exciting and nerve wracking news which is still hard for me to believe. I was nominated for “30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography” by New York based industry leading Rangefinder Magazine. Now let me put this into perspective for you… this is in the world for 2016!! The results were announced and although I didn’t quite make the top 30, I’m still insanely proud to be even considered for this alongside around 200 very talented photographers across the globe. It’s a pretty big deal really.

My work has also been featured on top wedding blogs such as Rock n’ Roll Bride, Love My Dress, Festival Bride, Boho Bride, The Wedding Community Blog and more. I am also a proud official supplier to Rock My Wedding’s Love Lust List.

I’ve been lucky enough to have photographed nearly 100 weddings and I’ve met the most wonderful couples and their friends and family with my job. I’m fortunate enough to call a lot of my couples friends and I adore that I get to be part of their lives as a mate. Although awards, features and recognition in the industry is all pretty darn lovely and I feel super proud of myself, it’s not why I love my job. I do it for you, for my couples, to give you flipping amazing photographs that you’re going to love forever. I spend time getting to know you, we can hang out, chat weddings or not and then on the day it’s like having another mate with you who happens to take pretty epic photos.

 

About Ayesha Rahman

Incredibly my job has taken me to New Zealand, Italy, Spain, France, Portugal and all over the UK and Ireland capturing gorgeous weddings. All of which have been amazing but I’m happy to shoot anywhere. I’ve photographed beautiful “I do’s” from actual castles (like actual Downton Abbey – really), stunning rooftop urban hotels, rainy and sunny beach nuptials, muddy festival field vows and beyond!

If you know we’re going to get on, you want heartfelt and stunning photographs as well as a super friendly face at your wedding then your search is over.

I can’t wait to meet you and chat some more about your big day!
