“Don't risk it - still no wedding photos 9 years later”

Written on: 06/08/2014 by iwClifford390 (1 review written)

Too much of a gamble. Don't hire him. A very distressing experience. We got married in 2005. Rahil was recommended by a friend who had no problems; she now feels awful for suggesting him. He is a good photographer, charming on the day but then he disappeared. We never got our photos. He refused to reply to endless emails, phone calls, letters over the course of five years. If I thought it would do any good, I would still chase him. It's not as if you can replace your wedding photographs. We are… Read Full Review

Great photographer - awful at communication. We got married a long time ago and are still waiting for our pictures. Great photos. But pointless when you don't actually have any wedding pictures. DONT DO IT!!… Read Full Review

“Great pictures but relaxed, fun day”

Written on: 04/05/2014 by Warks2012 (1 review written)

Rahil photographed our wedding in Warwickshire in October 2012 and did a great job. He was very accommodating, met with me beforehand to understand what we wanted and delivered on every aspect. He was good natured and fun, got the guests laughing, took great pictures and was unobtrusive throughout the day. I have been prompted to write a review two years on, as only yesterday friends were remembering and remarking on what a great job he did! Lots of guests bought his pictures for themselves… Read Full Review

“Brilliant and fun on the day”

Written on: 31/12/2013 by cwelli (1 review written)

We had Rahil as our wedding photographer in August 2013. He worked really hard on the day with 4 locations to get pictures from. We didn't think he would manage it but he did. He was great around our guests, even after the wedding people were asking after him and saying how friendly and fun he was. Rahil was able to photograph us without feeling too pushy or turning our wedding into a photo shoot. Something that we were keen to avoid. The images that he has produced are of a really good… Read Full Review

“Great on the day - rubbish at communication”

Written on: 11/10/2013

Rahil was a fantastic photographer on the day of our wedding, he made everyone feel at ease and we had great fun being photographed. I've got no idea whether the photo's came out well though because three weeks on I haven't heard from him at all, and i've tried contacting via phone and email and haven't had a peep out of him. I'm so looking forward to seeing the photos but really dissapointed in his lack of communication… Read Full Review

We are having the same issue - great on the day but now doesn't respond to anything and we haven't got our pictures back. We all hope is is well but this is very concerning.

I used Rahil for my wedding in June booked via KGB Deals. He too did turn up on the day and was a great photographer. I've received a link to his website where all of my pictures are up however, I haven't been able to contact him for over 2 months to get him to send me the pictures (which he has already edited). I'm running short of ideas as KGB have pretty much said that they've washed their hands from the deal.

Yep had exactly the same issue, a total joker. Avoid at all costs, however charming he seems at first. Please post here if you manage to get in contact with him

Hi there,

I managed to get hold of Rahil who immediately sent out all of my wedding pictures alongside a genuine apology and explanation for the delay.

The photos were excellent in quality so besides the delay in obtaining them I can say that I was very satisfied in the end result.

Hope this helps

Regards

“Fantastic Wedding Photographer - Highly Recommended! ”

Written on: 07/06/2013 by Barneyweston141 (1 review written)

We hired Rahil to be our photographer for our wedding in January 2013 and we were extremely happy with the service on the day and the excellent photos he got for us. On the wedding day, Rahil was friendly and polite and got great natural shots in addition to great organised pictures. He has a great talent for making people relax in front of the camera which really helps in getting the best shots, but also made everyone enjoy the photo sessions. Unlike photographers at other weddings that I… Read Full Review

“Friendly service, great photos”

Written on: 02/01/2013

We had Rahill as our wedding photographer and we are delighted with the overall high level of service he provided us. He was so polite and friendly with all the guests, which really helped us relax and get the out of the day. All our guests commented how friendly he has and this put them at ease when having photos taken. The most important bit - the photos - these exceeded our expectations and we have thoroughly enjoyed looking through them again and again. After the wedding he was great too… Read Full Review

“Best photos ever! Thanks Rahil!”

Written on: 02/12/2012 by RubinaT (1 review written)

As soon as I saw Rahil's work, I knew he was the photographer for us! Now that the wedding is over and we have seen the results, I was so right! The photos are fab and truthfully I can't stop looking at them!! My husband and I had two weddings this year-We had a civil ceremony on the Queen's Jubilee which Rahil covered so well that we had to have Rahil again for our indian wedding ceremony in October! We have been so pleased with everything about Rahil, from his personality to his working… Read Full Review

“Great pics!!”

Written on: 20/08/2012 by nsanchez (1 review written)

We used Rahil for our wedding on the 9th June,I don't really like my picture being taken but Rahil put me at ease straight away and the outcome was fantastic. We had a beautiful location and were very lucky with the weather so the images that Rahil has taken captured the day perfectly. I think my wedding day was perfect and the pictures I have remind me of that every single day. Great work Rahil!!!!!… Read Full Review

We have used Rahil for our wedding on 30th of June 2012….what can we say? Except that he was PHENOMENAL, exceptional, professional and unbelievably talented. The photos came out stunning at the end; he captured the whole of the wedding in a great light and we could happily relive the wedding by just looking at his amazing photos. Would recommend him to anyone, as you will not be disappointed…he is a great guy…so easy to work with and completes the wedding…so so so happy that we chose… Read Full Review

“Fantastic photographer! Highly recommended.”

Written on: 09/11/2011 by copernicus (1 review written)

Rahil was extremely professional and immediately stood out from other photographers we had contacted for our wedding. We were very impressed with his portfolio of pictures and were even more impressed with the beautiful pictures he took of our wedding. With such an important event, you want to make sure you have a photographer you trust and who will capture all the important moments. Rahil exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend him… Read Full Review

Eudamus's Response to copernicus's Review

Written on: 23/06/2012

I can only assume that this is not the same Rahil Ahmad, who took our wedding photographs in 2005, delivered proofs and was then never heard from again. If it is the same guy, on the day he was lovely, charming talented and took wonderful photos. However we never got our photos because he wouldn't return phone calls or emails or letters. I understand that we are not the only couple that he failed to communicate with.

I hope for others's sakes that he has consistently changed his ways but all I know is that we were left with no professional photos of one of the most special days of our lives.

“Brilliant experience working with Rahil !”

Written on: 09/06/2011

Rahil's work is excellent. He recently took some family portraits for me and the results were fantastic - some of the shots could easily be published in high end glossy magazines!! His high standard of professionalism on the job combined with putting his subjects at ease make the whole experience working with Rahil a real joy. Rahil works well to get all the shots we wanted. He was very open to ideas and input from us. Rahil also took our wedding pictures a few years back so we got to know him… Read Full Review

“A wonderful photographer and immaculate professional....”

Written on: 21/02/2011

A wonderful photographer and immaculate professional. Rahil really captured our wedding events beautifully, and in stunning detail. His coverage, especially working as a single photographer, is outstanding - and he captured some great creative shots.

Quite aside from being very likable and friendly, he is flexible and accommodating. He was a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending him highly. He also offers exceptional value for money for a photographer of his ability… Read Full Review

rahil was fantastically accomodating both in the lead up to our wedding and during it, giving us no additional stress - which helped an awful lot!
at the wedding he kept everyone relaxed and in good humour throughout, and was patient and highly professional. the photos are absolutely amazing - he caught everyone, really naturally, with minimum fuss and intrusion. the group shots were clear, perfectly orchestrated - the best reminder of our day that we could have wished for.
we are very… Read Full Review

Lovely jubbly! What a set of pictures, and didn't burn a hole in our wedding budget! His portfolio shows you exactly what you will end up with - he sent us a DVD of loads of his recent work. Fantasticly creative pictures. His fashion and press background really sets our wedding pictures apart from anything else we have seen. Don't give it a second thought… Read Full Review

“Good Points: ”

Written on: 01/07/2010

Good Points:
The pictures speak for themselves. They are incredibly clever and artistic, and capture all aspects of the wedding day. The day goes by so fast and having a great set of pictures brings it all back. The full-day option was definitely worthwhile.
Bad Points
None - unless you count the impossible job of selecting images for the wedding book! Too much choice and we keep changing our minds… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/06/2010 by Newsjunkie (1 review written)

I was so relieved to find Rahil given how many photographers now claim to be expert wedding photographers but seem to have no flare for the job at all.

Once I saw Rahil's previous work I was instantly won over. He has real creativity but understands when to use it and where to hold back in order that he always makes you feel comfortable and look wonderful in the actual pictures. As the cherry on top he was the loveliest person to deal with. Bright and funny and a wonderful addition to our… Read Full Review
