Ever since I can remember, I have always been interested in 'why' before the 'how' or 'what.' I've always been drawn towards deeper meanings that go beyond the surface of what most focus on. It is essentially what got me into photography.

My life is made up of the people I love; my wonderful soon to be husband, my goofy brothers, the most supportive parents, my loving grandparents and my dearest friends. I was born in Jordan in the city of Amman, a country that I deeply appreciate the history and culture of; it has made its way into the little knots that makeup the fabric of who I am. I'm also proud to have lived half my life as a Canadian citizen and to be residing in this beautiful country. I love coffee, I love food and I love having both with great company.

The reason I love shooting love is quite simple; love is being vulnerable, it’s being honest, being your true self with the one person that you want to spend the rest of your life with. Essentially, love is everything. There is a reason why you fell in love with that person, and I would love to know your story, how you connected with each other and I want to be able to tell that story, if you let me. 


what clients say about me

Aya traveled from Toronto, Canada to Petra, Jordan to capture our vow renewal, a life changing experience on film for us. She has an eye for photography like no other. She made us feel so comfortable during the whole process too. Of course that in itself is a challenge to do with two strangers on the other side of the camera. My wife and I felt so at ease. This girl’s talents are truly one of a kind!!!!!

We loved working with Aya for our wedding photography! It was honestly such a pleasure, Aya is so effortless, dedicated and easy to work with. She captures beautiful moments and wonderful shots in a very artistic way. The photos came out above and beyond our expectations. The memories Aya’s helped craft and the smiles she drew on our faces are priceless. We could’ve not asked for any better. We’d recommend her with a heart beat.

Soon after our engagement, we set off looking for a photographer who could truly capture our excitement and love for one another as we embarked on this new journey together. We could not have been any luckier than to find Aya, who exceeded our expectations and left us with gorgeous photographs to remember those events in our lives. We used Aya’s photographs to create our wedding guest book and received numerous complements from our guests. Aya was very professional through and through. She was easy to work with, and has a personal creative flair that made her photographs stand out. Aya was always responsive to our input and ultimate desired outcome, and she really had a way of making us laugh and feel at ease! We would not hesitate to recommend Aya to any of our closest friends and family - with Aya you’re guaranteed to be in good hands.

Chris and I just celebrated our 1 year anniversary not too long ago. I was looking through our photos (I must have seen them about 100 times). I just wanted to thank you for capturing our love so beautifully and effortlessly. We had taken engagement photos before we met you and I wish we had met you sooner as you are so talented. I can’t express how happy I feel when I look back at our special day. Thanks again Aya. I will be sure to contact you for other family shoots when that time comes.

I kid you not when I say, this woman is so talented. She felt more like a friend than a photographer, she does the magic without you knowing it. Because Lord knows how awkward a camera’s lens can feel at times like these. So glad, we chose you Aya, you made us look at ourselves from a lens and aww at ourselves!

We had the pleasure of working with Aya on two separate occasions. She is very professional and has an eye for beauty. Prior to our first photoshoot, Aya took the time to sit with my husband and I and got to know us better both as a couple and as individuals. We were very comfortable when shooting with her; there was never an awkward moment! As for the final product, I think her work speaks for itself- her photographs are absolutely amazing!! Thank you Aya for a wonderful experience and for the beautiful photos.
