Many Islamic people plan a multi-day celebration for a wedding, the customary ritual which is called as Nikah in Arabic is a very simple affair. At the weddings, the groom and the bride are seated in different rooms and they are not even allowed to see each other. For the ceremony, an elderly person from the Islamic community, who is conversant with the laws will visit each of the two rooms and ask both bride and groom for acceptance of marriage and then gets the signature of the bride and the groom on the marriage contract. With this, the couple is declared as husband and wife.
Although Nikah in itself is a simple affair but in modern times, Nikah has also had many changes and a number of ceremonies have been added which depend on the financial and social status of the couple’s families. This is one of the reasons that why you need photographers who are well familiar with Nikaah ceremonies and are also aware about the different trends. Therefore it is very important to hire good Muslim wedding photographer.
One of the most important things to look for in a photographer would be the required experience which would be very difficult to judge because every photographer would claim to have the essential expertise. Many photographers believe that they will gain experience with one assignment and then try to learn from their mistakes. So, it may happen that your wedding could be their learning field. This could prove very costly for you because weddings are one time event.
Some good photographers also do their homework by getting in touch with the planners of a particular occasion in order to get details of all the rites, customs and proceedings planned for the occasion. This provides them with a direct insight on the approaching occasion.
In order to be sure you can always ask for the images or video of some of the Nikaah weddings captured by your photographer before. Decent photographers always keep prints of their outstanding works in order to convince potential customers. This gives you an option of hiring a photographer only if you are satisfied with their work. If they are unable to present any of their works on Nikaah, it would be advisable to leave them immediately. Because either they have not captured a Nikaah before or their pictures are not good enough to be shown.
Generally, all good photographers have representatives in numerous parts of the world. Their list of addresses should check this. When you request for their address, you should be provided with all their addresses. Last but not the least, the last point on hiring a good Muslim Nikaah Photographer is to ensure that these photographers know all the details of the occasion. They should be well aware of all the events of such weddings. You should personally ask them about this and they should be able to list all of them in right order. If your photographer is unable to do so, I would advise not to hire them.
