Hello, I’m Az and I’ve been photographing weddings in Hampshire, Dorset, West Sussex and the New Forest since my twenties. I feel extremely lucky to be doing what I enjoy for a living and I’m very happy to be working in such a beautiful part of the UK.
I was born in Hampshire and have three brothers and one sister. I’ve been a vegetarian for about 20 years and apart from photography, my biggest love is music. My favourites are Neil Young, David Bowie, and Joni Mitchell. I also listen to as much new music as I can. At the moment I’m listening to Karen O, Frank Ocean, Lykke Li and Courtney Barnett.
I have one daughter called Millie who is 22 years old. I love to cook especially Indian & Thai meals. I’m certain that I would have trained to be a chef if I wasn’t a photographer.
I passed my motorcycle test in 2018 and It was the best thing I’ve done for myself and one day I hope to ride through down to Italy. I’ve never been! I love to travel just like everyone else, and in 2018 my partner and I spent a month travelling across Japan. It really was a dream come true.
I’ve been with my partner Tiff for over 7 years and can’t imagine a world without her. Life has thrown some crap at us both but we still manage to laugh and get through it all.
I’m a romantic and have been known to get emotional at weddings. It’s life in one day and I love to photograph as many moments throughout a wedding day as I can. It’s a beautiful thing to be part of and I get a front row seat every time.
