Meet the Photographer

Documentary Asian Wedding Photographer 

Hello! Thank you for thinking of having me tell the story of your wedding and before you disappear off for a coffee,  here’s a quick bit about me and Portobello Picture Co.

I  specialise in Asian Wedding Photography, and have been capturing Asian Weddings for almost 10 years.  Over the years  I have developed a unique style and philosophy for my Wedding Photography.  My style is centred around you, your family and the friends that are special to you.

My aim is to  photograph the wedding and all its splendour, capturing the essence and feeling  of the wedding in a fresh, fun and stylish way, focusing on the organic and genuine moments that create the atmosphere,  emotion and joy of weddings.

As a wedding photojournalist I am a firm believer that your wedding photos should be a reflection of the real emotions of the wedding, they should be natural, warm, and evoke emotions - they should be fun!   

With the editorial style wedding portraits, I offer something  a little different, with a touch of enhanced reality to these portraits and making them mini works of art. The Wedding portraits reflect who you are and the moments you share and the emotions they will stir when you look back at them in years to come.

As a full time photographer I work across a broad range of areas from fashion, portraiture, editorial and commerce and I bring this experience with me when documenting and capturing  your wedding celebrations.

Over the years, I have photographed and documented over 670 wedding stories, 1,000's of people, 100's of celebrities,  I have worked on a few films,  photographed fashion stories and each story I tell is as amazing as the next, and each one as unique as the individuals in them.  Along my journey, I have had the pleasure to meet some amazing families and couples in the a UK and  around the world  who have welcomed me into their lives to tell their awesome stories through my photography. 

I enjoy and love photographing all types of people; those who are full of life, the easy going, the fun ones and those camera shy folk. Everybody has a very unique story to tell and they want their story to be unique,  artistic and fun, these are the elements that people want to remember  share.

Due to the complex nature of Asian Weddings, personal referrals and recommendations from venues and wedding planners,   I can only accept a limited number of weddings per year and work only with those clients that want a natural and  elegant story of their big day.

During my short career as a photographer I have won notable photography and business Awards , have work published in national and international  wedding blogs and magazines, write about Asian Weddings and train  photographers in the Art of Asian Weddings, and one of a handful of the Asian Wedding Photographers to be a qualified  member of the British Institute of Professional Photographers

I am a dad of two cheeky little girls, and husband to a very understanding wife. I am Monir Ali LBIPP and hopefully, in time the photographer that tells your unique story, encapsulating the authentic beauty of the day.

Thank You for reading this far down and i look forward to hwaring from you.
