Hi folks! I am a Libyan-American photographer and videographer in Houston, Texas, and I cover weddings, portraits, commercial photography, and photojournalism.

For the past several years, I have been specializing in documenting Libyan weddings in the United States as a way of preserving how our traditions are realized and adapted across the diaspora.
However, I am a BIG fan of all weddings! In addition to photographing big, tiny, modern, and traditional weddings over the past 10 years, I have officiated, coordinated, and participated in more weddings than I can count accurately. I also cover family-related events of all kinds -- henna/mehndi parties, engagements, fat7a/nikkah ceremonies, 3sbooa or baby welcoming events.

On the commercial side, I produce images and video for businesses plus short-  and long-term documentary, editorial, commercial, multimedia, and editing projects.

My years in photojournalism school taught me to be adaptable and comfortable in almost any working environment, whether an industrial drill manufacturer or a romantic wedding villa. I believe the two most important things for the success of any project are building authentic relationships with the folks around me from the client to the onlookers, and providing focused technical skill. 

Whether it is for your family, your company, or your publication,  I am happy to speak with you about how I can create compelling visuals to fit your needs.
I strive to listen well, photograph ethically, and problem-solve compassionately.

Please get in touch. I look forward to speaking with you!
