I have been where you are.
I and my husband, Promito, have been in your shoes. Finding a photographer for us was stressful. As a couple, we have a very subtle way of showing love. We are a bit private and enjoy the little moments between us. And that is exactly how we wanted to be photographed. We didn’t want the photographer to try to show something that we are not. We want our photos to show the kindness, warmth, and emotion that we feel for each other. We researched, looked at so many portfolios, and made Pinterest boards, but failed to have the experience that we were looking for. That is why I came up with my “showing your real love” approach. An experience that shows the “YOU” through pictures. My brand focuses on tapping into the heart of your personality and bringing out the best aspects of your relationship through photos. I will not make you try some traditional couple poses that do not represent your relationship. My posing and approach will be unique and curated based on YOUR STORY. Let’s get together and cherish your timeless romance!
Hey, I'm Shuhrat!
I am also a wife, and a pet mom of a spoiled cat called Ozzy. When I am not behind the camera, I enjoy going to concerts, watching TV shows/superhero movies, and singing in the car while I go on long drives.
Sushi is my comfort food, The Office is my comfort show. I enjoy having a good laugh by watching stand-up comedy shows. As much as I love my own company, I only love trips that I take with my husband.
My philosophy of life is, “live and let live”. Life is too short and chaotic to be concerned about other people’s business. We are all doing the best we can, right?
Something I wish I did more of but can’t keep up with is reading books.
If you ask me “what would you be, if not a photographer?”, I don’t think I would have the answer to that. Because I can’t think of anything else that brings me as much joy as doing what I do.
Other than being a wedding photographer,
I love my spoiled brat Ozzy, and I find meaning of life in helping pets who have nobody to look after them.
That is why a certain amount of the revenue from my photography business is used to help rescued pets and pets in need.
I LOVE PETS!!
Here's a snapshot into my world.
A Little Behind The Scenes Of My Life
We wanted elegance and she gave us that and so much more! Giving us our dream European wedding at the comfort of Detroit. She captures such raw emotions that it's hard to seriously stop staring at every picture she delivered to us. She was such a joy to work with❤️❤️

Working with Shuhrat was absolutely magical
Shuhrat was extremely professional, personable, caring, and just always in such a positive mood! She will let you have the direction or she will take over when needed - she did a wonderful job getting pictures of everything we wanted AND MORE! She will be the one photographer I will refer to friends and family over and over again - probably for the rest of my life. My wedding guests as well as family even loved her! She is very knowledgeable about photography, lighting, indoor/out door settings and she was even able to direct our bridal group of 14 people with absolutely no issues. Thank you for being so wonderful and amazing and sharing your talent with us on our very special wedding day!

Shuhrat is an expert of every single aspect of her craft
Shuhrat was always before/on time. She kept a friendly and professional attitude throughout all the events. She was able to navigate successfully through all the hectic situations that are natural with a wedding and managed to capture some breath-taking photos of the memorable moments through our wedding. She gave us our photos shortly after the event with quick post editing time. she’s a truly talented photographer with an eye to detect the right moments to capture during any event.

Shuhrat captured mesmerizing bridal photos of me that looked like they belong in a magazine.
Professional, talented, amazing, patient - those are just some of the understated words that describe my experience with Shuhrat and her photography services. I had the pleasure of having her photograph my wedding and she exceeded all expectations! I am very camera shy but as a new bride of course I wanted those “typical” wedding moments to be captured for memories. Shuhrat made me feel so comfortable and I didn’t feel like she was pressuring me at all. She was able to give me exactly what I wanted with little effort required! All of my guests loved her! I highly recommend Life & Lights Photography for capturing your future special moments! 100/10!!!

Best decision we made!
Shuhrat is an amazing and talented photographer. What separates her from the other skilled photographers is her ability to make people comfortable in front of the camera. I am a introvert person and do not feel at ease in front of the camera at all. Shuhrat did a few sessions with me and my wife, and she was able to capture my best confident self without me even realizing every single time. She is patient and absolutely amazing with her composition and framing sense. She always delivers on getting the perfect moment in camera for you. She is also very quick and efficient with delivering her edits and has a really strong work ethic. Definitely recommend her and I look forward to our next sessions in future.

shuhrat was able to capture my best confident self without me even realizing every single time
Until this point, I would always look at photos taken of me and say “wow I look awkward and weird”. But for the first time I looked at the photos and thought “damn I look pretty good”. Therefore, I will always recommend someone who has the ability to change my entire outlook and confidence when it comes to taking photos. Excellent work and I look forward to future shoots! From an introverted guys perspective, the idea of taking professional pictures was quite intimidating. However, as Shuhrat made apparent quickly, a photo session can be an extremely fun when you have the right person behind the camera.

It was so relieving to have a photographer who strays away from the cliche, looking at the camera images
Shuhrat is amazing to work with. She kept us laughing the whole time and posed us so well for our photos! They turned out so so perfect. Everyone was obsessed with our wedding photos and could not stop talking about them. The experience from start to finish was AMAZING! Definitely recommend her!
