We hired Naveed and his team as the photographers for our August wedding at the Bridges Golf Club. Naveed and Halim and Oliver were excellent photographers and such a joy to work with.

We scheduled an engagement shoot for 6am in SF and boy was is freezing out but working with Naveed and Halim made it a breeze. Their personalities and humor kept us laughing through chattering teeth and looking at the photos, no one could tell we were practically frozen.

After an awesome experience during the engagement shoot, we were so excited for the photos of our wedding. Naveed and Halim did an amazing job and the photos were gorgeous!! They captured all the details of the wedding and made us look phenomenal! During such a whirlwind day, we’ll never be able to remember all the little things, but having the photos Naveed and Halim took, we’ll be able to relive that wonderful day again and again. We couldn’t have asked for more and we were overjoyed with the work Naveed and his team produced!!

We had the pleasure of meeting Naveed through our Videographer, Halim Qayum who has been working with Naveed for quite some time (they are a great team by the way!). Our wedding was about 6 months away and I was able to see the first glimpse of his amazing work at our ENGAGEMENT PARTY at my parent’s home. My family describes Naveed like the wind; you don’t even know he is there and where he took the pictures from, but he was always at the right place at the right time and captured the perfect moment; moreover, the most meaningful moments!

Then we had our ENGAGEMENT SHOOT at two different locations on two different days. I had told Naveed was that I didn’t like taking pictures. Naveed assured me that I would feel comfortable and that is exactly how I felt throughout. If you were to see the pictures, I laughed so hard it made my stomach hurt. He always did or said something to make me smile or laugh and I don’t know if he was even trying to. Naveed is quite the perfectionist and will stop at nothing to get the perfect shot. He climbed a tree and even hung off a gazebo over the water, all to capture the right angle and make our pictures unique. On part 1 of our engagement shoot, we used the location where my husband and I had met. We didn’t know this, but our location was the stop for a marathon that day! I was a bit worried that my pictures would have hundreds of strangers with numbers on their shirts and biker shorts in the background. Naveed did not even flinch. He made us the focus of the pictures and you would never have known that there was an event that day.

Throughout the course of the few months leading up to the wedding, I kept in touch with Naveed and he was very responsive. We felt so confident in him and never had to give any direction. His images were very high quality and very vivid.

Then we had a 15 hour WEDDING day (ceremony and reception) with 500+ people in April. My husband and I are from two different cultures and Naveed (and Robin) caught each step and captured the essence of each ceremony, telling the story. Naveed even stayed with us through the last, last, last song just clicking away. Once I got the pictures, I felt like I was watching a movie. I laughed, I cried (happy tears) and the emotions I felt on my wedding day came rushing back. As the bride, you don’t get to see everything that happens behind the scenes while everyone runs around, but Naveed was able to fill in those blanks for me and left me in awe. His photographs definitely captivated us. We will definitely be using Naveed’s services again. Thank you so much Naveed, we could not have asked for more!

Naveed was a pleasure to work with. I’m really glad we selected him as our photographer. We were lucky to have him come from SF to San Diego to be there for our wedding day. He created beautiful photos that will always remind us of our lovely memories. I look forward to having him photograph our special moments in the future. Just set up a meeting with him, you won’t regret it. I get so many compliments on our photos! He books up quick so make sure you inquire early for your date!

“Anyone can click a shutter. But when you are capturing amazing moments that cannot be recreated, you have to learn to listen to know where to look. You have to click with people BEFORE you click the shutter. Excellent job Naveed. You are awesome & passionate and it clearly shows. Thanks for being an integral part of our happiness.” - Iqbal Ahmed, father of the brides

Naveed did my wedding photography on May 29, 2015. He was very professional, responded to emails quickly, and it was great to work with. We did a pre-wedding photo shoot and he was very patient with us and very accommodating. All my guests had nothing but good things to say about Naveed and the videographers from Verus! I highly recommend booking with Naveed for any event that you may have coming!!!

Naveed is absolutely amazing. I had a 4 day wedding, and Naveed did the photography for the wedding ceremony itself. By far, those pictures are my absolute favorite and just gorgeous. Naveed has a way of capturing the most magical moments (moments I totally missed myself) and somehow makes every person in every picture appear beautiful and real. He is incredibly creative and has a vision---which is good because my husband and I had no ideas for what we wanted prior to the event! Moreover, he is sweet, laidback and funny, which made us comfortable during the entire shoot. I would recommend him to my best friend and will definitely have him take pictures again for us in the future!

 When I first started my search for a wedding photographer and videographer, I, of course, wanted someone who could take the best quality pictures and create the best wedding video ever. All brides want this so that goes without saying. For my South Asian, nearly 500 guest wedding, which spanned three days, I need a bit more than that. Having rapport with my photography/videography team was essential for me. I become horribly uncomfortable around cameras and my wedding was going to be three days of 5-6 hours of straight picture taking. I also needed a team who could manage a large, diverse and at times, unruly crowd.  I had already taken gone through pictures of different weddings, engagements and events on the Naveed Ahmad Photography website so I knew that I liked their style. It was when I met with Naveed which clinched it for me. He was so open, and friendly and yet the utmost professional. I was immediately at ease in his presence. He listened to what I needed and worked with my husband and I on crafting a package that accommodated everything we wanted at an extremely competitive price.  Communicating with him was never a problem- I could be totally honest with him, and he understood where I’d be coming from. We had some special family circumstances during the wedding (my father had surgery right before the wedding and could only be at the events for a limited amount of time). Naveed and his team were highly cognizant and respectful of this and although it made for some major changes in the schedule of events at the very last minute, they rolled with it without losing their professionalism or sense of fun. During the actual wedding, Naveed and his team were an absolute DREAM. It’s really hard to connect with almost 500 people, but they did. I have aunts and uncles who are very traditional and they were raving about our photographer and videographer. Crowd control was done respectfully, expertly and with a sense of fun (which was REALLY important to me). There was no bulky equipment that got in anyone’s way (I’ve been hit in the head by cameras at other weddings) and honestly, there were many times I even forgot that the cameras were rolling.

Now about the pictures! Oh my God! Amazing! All of the specific shots that I had requested and all the “necessary” shots of family and friends were there- none were missing. In addition to that, however, were the many, many candid shots that captured the mood of our wedding perfectly. I’ve shown our album of pictures to some of my friends and in one viewing, they’ll go from laughing to crying to laughing again- that’s how perfectly every important and poignant moment was captured. I am having the HARDEST time selecting pics to be framed, etc because they are all that wonderful. Our wedding video is pending and I will update this review as soon as it’s done but we saw a same day edit of our henna function….let’s just say, it made me want to attend my henna as a guest! I, without any hesitation, would recommend Naveed Ahmad and Verus Weddings as your photography and videography team for your wedding….that is only if you’re looking for a fun, well organized, professional team that delivers more than they promise.

Naveed is wonderful! I can only say good things about him. He makes you feel very comfortable (which was big for me because I'm not exactly the romantic type). You can really tell he loves what he's doing because he's always carrying a huge grin on his face.
If you want someone who is fun, comforting, and has wonderful photography skills...he's the one to go to!

Naveed is a one of a kind photographer. I had booked him for an engagement session as well as my 2 wedding events. I absolutely LOVED his work. Naveed has a keen eye with lighting, poses, and editing. He really spends time getting to know the couple and takes in consideration the type of poses you would like while building a relationship with you. As far as the photographs go- there were plenty to choose from and my husband and I had a hard time choosing only a few to display at the wedding- we loved them all! Also his turn-around time as far as editing and getting you the photos is very quick but done very well! I don’t think I could have chosen a better photographer to work with. Not only do I refer him to everyone else I know, but I plan to have him capture future memories for my husband and I. Naveed is an outstanding photographe rand he also ends up being a close friend after working with him. Thanks for capturing all the great memories for me.
