Outfit – Check
Makeup Artist – Check
Photographer – ?
I am often inundated with readers and friends contacting me asking me to recommend an ‘amazing’ photographer, not simply a good one. After all it is their big day and they want someone who will capture those timeless moments which will be reflected on in years to come.
My immediate response is always ALIWAY, for a number of reasons. Not only have I worked closely with ALIWAY on photo shoots and assignments but I have also been able to witness its founder at work, and have always been impressed by his talent each time.
Imagine all the expense that is spent of caterers, décor, detail etc and yet none of it is captured? Aliway’s ethos is to do just that and that’s what founder does so effortlessly. He focuses on contemporary and creative storytelling, ‘you want the still images to be ‘moving’, with respect to emotion and expression.
ALIWAY was founded by Chartered Accountant Rooful Ali, defying the potential stereotype that accountants are not creative by nature! His portfolio has grown from capturing friends’ weddings, to high profiled fashion shoots and occasions, all which reflect a unique vibrant style. ALIWAY prides itself in having developed a portfolio that is distinctive, and also proud to have on-hand associate photographers including female photographers (great for segregated weddings) to handle larger assignments, split location or even unfortunate calendar clashes. Also, Ali is available to assist other professional photographers where they require second shooters. Weddings aside Rooful also covers corporate and lifestyle events, some work which he carried out for Hijablicious is below:
