Timeless photographs and videos that will become family heirlooms to pass down from generation to generation.
Editor’s Note: for this Best Wedding Photographers in Houston Spotlight, we had the pleasure of interviewing Aisha, from Ama Photography & Cinema.
Where have you been featured?
Just to name a few: Style Me Pretty, Weddings in Houston Magazine, The Houston Chronicle, Modern Luxury Weddings Magazine, Junebug Weddings, and The Knot.
Why do couples love working with you?
I think they like how I make them feel comfortable. Cameras can be very intimidating. I know I get really uncomfortable in front of them! So I keep that in mind when I’m behind the camera and have a couple feeling nervous and intimidated in front of me. I try my best to give them constant feedback and make sure they’re looking their best at all times. Building trust throughout the shoot just makes the flow better and better as they get more and more comfortable.
What do you love most about being a wedding photographer?
The couples and the challenges! I like meeting the different couples and trying to figure them out. But every wedding also brings different challenges as the day rushes on and complications arise. I love taking on those challenges and making the best photos out of them
How did you get started?
A friend once mentioned how they thought I had good photography and should be a professional photographer. I had heard people compliment my photos before but had never had the idea of being a professional photographer. That night I went home determined to make it happen and bought my first digital DSLR shortly after.
What 3 words best describe your wedding photography style?
Elegant, cool, and sexy.
What budget range do you cater to?
The average couple spends about $5,000 on their photography package with me. This allows me to work with many different wedding budgets as some of my clients are investing 10 to 20% of their wedding budget on photography. But I also cater to intimate weddings which happen to be my favorite. A la carte packages are created for weddings of 40 guests or less. Sometimes these intimate weddings end up being the best!
Choosing Aisha was hands down the best decision I made for my wedding.
I cannot say enough about Aisha and her team. Not only is Aisha’s work flawless, but what I appreciate most about her is her desire to make each session personal and one of a kind.
