ABOUT NAVID

Shooting documentary wedding photography

Hi, I’m Navid. I’m the person behind Navid Mughal Photography and the one behind the camera. I love to work with couples that like to kick back and want to have a fun-filled and relaxed wedding day that is uniquely theirs. Couples who love beautiful, natural and creative photography, photography that captures a journalistic story of their wedding day and their own unique style and relationship. I truly believe a wedding day should be wonderful and memorable for all the right reasons. A day of celebration, joy and laughter. Happy memories maybe of those embarrassing stories and the silly dancing when you can let your hair down at the end of the evening.

As well as being creative I am naturally curious. I love to find out all about the two of you. I want to know how you both met. Your first date, your favourite film, what you both love doing together and how you finally got to this day… planning your wedding day. By getting to know you I find out what’s important to you and learn about you as a couple so I can plan and capture your unique wedding story.

I’m all about documenting the day. From the big moments to the smallest of detail that you might have missed or not even noticed. My documentary or photojournalist wedding photography style means I’m unobtrusive and out of the way when I need to be to get the natural, emotive and real images that you will cherish.

My love for photography started as early as my formative school days. I dabbled with a camera back then after first discovered a cardboard box packed full of old photography magazines being thrown out. My intrigue got the better of me and before I knew it I was hooked. I was lucky enough to use the school’s darkroom during breaks and lunch times developing films and shooting anything that moved with a fully manual camera. I generally made a right mess experimenting but I had a ball trying. I wanted to learn everything I could on photography. After my studies I moved on to working with some of the best fashion and commercial photographers in London. I then got sidetracked studying graphic design and on to a career running a small publishing company from Munich, Germany.

My passion for photography never died away as I developed my skills to become a photographic Art Director for fashion and lifestyle magazines, travelling around the world working on fashion and lifestyle photo shoots. Little did I know at the time how many invaluable skills I would learn as an Art Director on magazines and gain a great understanding of people, their stories and being able to apply it all to my rediscovery of photography when I took the plunge to set up Navid Mughal Photography and introduce a style of fashion to my wedding photography.

Here are a few things that rock my photography world. I love natural light, big windows, beautiful buildings, clean lines and symmetry (that’s the designer in me), beautiful landscapes and exploring new places. I love to travel, so whilst I’m a photojournalist wedding photographer based in Wiltshire I am happy to wander the country and across the seas to photograph your wedding. Maybe it’s a small remote village on the Cornish coast that you fell in love with and want to be married there, or big old party in a field with a marquee, straw bales with a private bell tent for you to spend your wedding night in (this did actually happen at a wedding I photographed). Whatever it is, or wherever it is, you will be surrounded by your favourite people in the world. Your wedding will be unique as you both are and if you want me to be there to capture every precious moment I’ll be there!

When I do have time away from my work, which does keep me busy, you will find me spending as much time as I can with my wife and my two cute children. My daughter is already showing signs and talents taking her own photos. I have re-discovered my childhood obsession with wooden train sets; spending many a Sunday afternoon with my son building train tracks from room to room.

I love fashion, the old classic black and white movies and watching any movie with the ‘king of cool’ Steve McQueen over and over again. I can’t get enough of the sounds of Motown, especially Stevie Wonder and the Jacksons. I grew up mimicking the dance moves from Michael Jackson and Earth Wind and Fire. I think I still have it though my kids would strongly disagree!
