I am Naeem Razak, “Just call me Naz!”
My friends know me best by being that one person that fails with text messaging’s ‘auto correct’ feature. I am the worst! If my emails dont make sense, I was most likely on my phone. Sorry in advance. . . . .
I see everything in life as a journey. I got caught with the shutter bug from a trip to Malaysia with the family many-many years ago. I researched, studied went through several notebooks of messy handwritten notes and even that continues today. This is a real passion of mine and it’s not just what I do. It’s my Art and I hope I forever continue to push my creative mind and break the rules.
The little things:
- My Personal Facebook feed is mainly cats
- I taugh myself how to do the moonwalk at age 7
- A fitness Junky in my other, other life
- I’m a lover of Animals
- A journey excites me more than the destination
- I’m a fishing addict
- Would only wake up at 3:30am to go fishing
- I take awesome sunrise photographer when fish aren’t biting
- Loves to plan a project then regret it when I’m in too deep
- I have random bursts of online shopping madness
There’s something about Photography that allows me to be free. I truly see it as an Art. I’d rather capture a moment then just take a snap. I want to see an image and feel like I was back there in the moment. I want to capture emotion and celebration rather than make couples feel like mannequins on their wedding day. I hope that I’ll never be content with my skill, or else this would just be no more than a job.
How you might be feeling. . .
There can be quite a lot to take in planning your Big Day! But the main thing to remember is the day is about you! It's your day, and you're with who YOU want to celebrate. Sit down and think about the things that you LOVE - the both of you, individually. Maybe this will spark an idea of how YOU want to celebrate. The critical thing is if you haven't noticed - It's a celebration for the BOTH of you. So after everything is settled, have a simple idea with how you intend to experience the whole day. Imagine how you'd like to look back on your day and how you would like it documented.
Your wedding day will go quicker than you realise. Table Centres, Decor, Dresses, Suits and Cakes. All the things you plan for your wedding is all for the one experience. Without photos documenting your day, you won't have anything to relive those moments by. All these things you plan for, you might only use once. You can look back on your photos in years to come and be able to relive the day forever.

We had Naeem photograph our Nikah and it was a very enjoyable, stress free experience! He’s skilled at taking natural light photos and the beach photo shoot we did was fun and easy as he was always calm and full of natural posing ideas. Would definitely keep him in mind for future events

Had the privilege of being shot by Manis Moments Photography. His vision and creativity is none like I have ever experienced with other photographers. The way he utilises natural lighting and the unique composition really make his photos outstanding! Would highly recommend to use him for your special day or even a casual shoot. You will not be disappointed!
