ABOUT

Named as Rangefinder Magazine “30 Rising Stars” in Wedding Photography 2014 

I was born and raised in Manchester, UK. Photography has become an integral facet of my transition to the States. I find that my British quirkiness, laid back attitude and unique sense of style has helped me establish myself as Washington D.C.’s leading South Asian Wedding Photographer.

Being a lover of light and color, it was inevitable that I would become Wedding photographer. My vibrant Pakistani roots have allowed me to seamlessly blend into a crowd and capture the spontaneity of the ceremony. The ability to create clean, rich, bold, saturated images with a timeless quality is my forte. The combination of my images and their desire for something different attracts my clients and establishes an immediate connection that resonates throughout their experience.

“Light and color constantly dance around me and I find a need to capture both with utter frequency” – Erum

Based in Washington DC – But does travel!
