“Javed is a great photographer for so many reasons – he was incredible for our wedding and I would recommend him for anybody’s festivities. He is VERY timely. Brides are stressed out no matter what, and he always contacted me first. Needless to say, he wasn’t one of my people that I had to constantly track down. He’s a great communicator – anytime any member of my family or I had a suggestion, he would never turn us away. We never felt like we weren’t in control of the pictures. He of course was a professional and made the right choices when necessary.
Every. Picture. Is. Incredible.
The very best part about Javed is that he gets to know your family. The greatest pictures were taken at our home, when my family was congregated before and after the official festivities. He captured the happiness and excitement throughout those casual pictures.” –Yasmeen Zaid & Mir Khan (Oklahoma)
“On my wedding day Javed was more like superman than Hijabman! He took amazing pictures, absolutely, but he simultaneously captured the hearts and minds of my fierce Punjabi Pakistani clan (young and old alike). Somehow through the madness of my counter-culture nuptial, Javed assumed the role of photographer, brother, driver, fashion consultant, mediator, grief counselor etc. etc. all while tirelessly capturing each and every memorable part of our wedding. He never missed a beat either – everyone loved how he finally threw off his camera toward the end of the wedding festivities and partied like a rock star for about 5 minutes! (Javed’s Clarification To Those Reading: Rest Assured, I only did this after I got all the shots I needed of everyone dancing and knew that the bride and groom’s family highly approved of the photographer (that would be me) spontaneously busting a bhangra-move for 5 minutes before continuing to work until after everyone left). Consider all that when you’re thinking about who will best memorialize your special day. I thought I would feel awkward with the insistent clicking of the camera shutter in my ear, but Javed was a joy to have around. His easy going attitude helped us all to relax and look our best in the remarkable pictures he produced. Thank you super Hijabman! Your gift extends well beyond photography! Come back soon so my parents can feed your saag and roti!” – Arooj Ahmad & Cody Potter (California)
“Javed was phenomenal. My family loved him! He recently photographed my wedding and, by universal consensus, the pictures came out BEAUTIFULLY. He has a very artistic eye, and all the pictures had great lighting, great angles and happy people! He stayed with us throughout all the events and even the family events that people don’t usually have photographers for. Most photographers will only stay for the hours you book them and charge you tons extra if they have to stay longer – not Javed. He’s also one of the nicest human beings around. It was so clear to us that he just wanted to capture all of the special moments. I really can’t recommend Javed enough – I will tell all my friends who get married to book him!” – Sarah Izfar (Texas)
“Javed ‘HijabMan’ Memon is an incredibly talented and hard working photographer who beautifully captured our wedding. Javed artfully photographed our entire wedding weekend. He was the first to arrive on the day of the Mehndi and stayed through the Nikkah, reception and brunch the next day. He even set some time aside for a shoot with just my husband and I.
Not only was Javed present every day the photographs he shot were stunning. In our Pakistani-Vietnamese wedding he was able to navigate both of our cultures and customs and this came through in the photographs. He was even able to get reticent aunties and uncles to crack a smile. Both sides of our family loved Javed, we got a photographer and friend all in one. Hope to see you at Farah Naz’s wedding!” – Kiran Tahir & Martin Nguyen (Indiana)
“Javed, these are absolutely absolutely amazing. We are so excited to share them. We cant thank you enough. Next week I am going to sit down and write your testimonial. Asad also wants to have a longer conversation on the phone, so you will hear from us in the next day or two. For now all I can say is WOW. You are so talented and please feel free to share these as you see fit to spread business. I AM SO SO SO EXCITED.” – Nermeen Arastu & Asad Husain (New Jersey)
“Javed did an amazing job taking photos at our wedding. I work with professional news photographers, and have noticed that of all the so-called professionals, only about 5% have the ability to capture and perfectly frame a moment in time so that a picture tells its own story—Javed is one of those very talented select people. He is a very engaging and warm person who makes a real effort to get to know the people and personalities in the wedding party. As a result, the photos he takes capture the essence of a moment. Javed has a fundamental and automatic understanding of what moments are special for the bride and groom. He does not need to be led around and guided by anyone during the event. The photos he took of my wedding encapsulated memories and highlights of the wedding day. His shots were candid without making anyone look foolish—and that is a real skill.” – Kirran Syed (Illinois)
“We had two photographers. I definitely regretted having the other guy since I much prefer all the pictures taken by Javed. They are the most vivid and manage to capture the moment just at the right time, especially those candid shots. Your skill to connect with the people, especially my partner (who rarely smiles for photographs) and bring out the smiles in him, that’s just amazing. Thanks so much, Javed!” – Maya Husin (Penang, Malaysia)
