Photographer And Entrepreneur Fatima Gulied


"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything." - Aaron Siskind

Fatima Gulied, a businesswoman specialising in photography for weddings, functions or events.
Fatima was first interested in photography when she was a media student and was keen to learn more about the art of pictures and filming. Her passion started to grow and with the support from her mother, Fatima knew that photography would be her chosen career path. “My mum is the main reason why I even had the courage to start my own business. Being a strong-minded businesswoman herself, she always encouraged me to turn my creativity into a business and pushed me to come out of my shell.”

Fatima has been working in the wedding industry for roughly 5 years, but now she’s been running her own company for over a year and a half. She would love to expand her business in the future and get more people involved. She offers her clients a variety of packages that would suit them, however they can also tailor it to their own preferences.





“The demand has definitely increased and I can only be at so many places at one time. I also have a few other projects that I’m working on and I can’t wait to share them with everyone, insha’Allah.”
Before taking any photos and capturing the perfect moments, Fatima likes to sit down with the bride and get to know her first. “I have conversations with them on how the day will go and who the family members are. It’s important to mentally prepare for how the day will go, as it will help me to try and capture every moment,”

To gain more insight and inspiration, Fatima enjoys spending time looking at other photographers’ work on social media sites. “I also like to use the colours or the objects around me as inspiration throughout the day. For example, if I’m in a venue and the mood and all the colours are dark, I would try and reflect that in the tone of the images that I’m capturing on that day.”
What does Fatima love the most about being a photographer? Her favourite part is meeting lovely new people and being able to witness the most important day of their lives: the wedding day! “Capturing the glimpse of their happiness for them to share with the future generations is something that I absolutely love; and I am so humbled that they gave me that privilege.”




Fatima found coming out of her comfort zone and opening up to be the most difficult part of her journey.“I was a very shy person when I first started photography and it wasn't always easy for me to direct people and tell them what to do. The more I continued to shoot weddings, the more my confidence grew and I learned how to open up to people.” This became a learning process for her and helped her become a better photographer. Gaining confidence is key, because it reflects the outcome of your pictures but it also make the client feel at ease.

Fatima found her passion and turned it into her career, we admire her for having the strength and confidence to do so. We asked Fatima to share some advice to our Elmimag readers who want to possibly go down the same career path as her.

“To anybody who wants to start their own business but doesn’t have the courage to do so, go for it! You have nothing to lose; if you have a passion for something then with the will of Allah SWT you can turn that into something amazing. The good thing about today’s society is that we have Social Media on our side; it’s the best way to reach millions of people in a matter of seconds. This tool will be your weapon in getting your business out there and getting people to recognise your brand.”
