Qurrat A’yun Studios started as my escape from the sterile, suffocating dungeons of University of Toronto’s Engineering department. Whenever I had some time I would grab my little Canon point-and-shoot and photograph anything I could — puddles, my brothers, my jewellery.
Some brave investments later, my first advertisement on Kijiji finally got me my first client.
Why is this important? Because when I graduated — iron ring on hand — I paused, thought, and tuned out the “respectable career” advice all around me. I picked up my DSLR [and a lot of other fancy toys] and became a photographer. Now every time I shoot the budding love of two souls I am motivated by my own love and passion.
Speaking of love, the name Qurrat A’yun comes from the beautiful Quranic prayer [25:74] imploring Allah to grant us in our spouses and children a comfort/pleasure for our eyes. And that’s exactly what I attempt do: capture, in the most exquisite manner, the pleasures of peoples’ eyes — offering my clients photographs as cherished mementos.
However, along with cherished mementos also comes valuing the privacy of those very mementos. Therefore, something a lot of people ask me is: “What’s up with pictures with no faces?” I’ll be the first one to say that when it came to my wedding I would have never let the entire online world look at my pictures. Likewise — the privacy, comfort and modesty of my clients is my number one priority, and so I never put up identifying images of my clients online. That’s my promise!

Modest. Beautiful. You. Those words embody what we do. Modest because your precious moments will be solely yours to see and cherish. Beautiful because God loves beauty, and so do you and I! You because making your experience with us exquisite is our firm promise.
