In Islam, people who see photography as a profession are not required to confine their work to passport photos. Though they should observe Islamic rules of morality and decency, their work can be extended to other functions as long as there is no violation to the rules of Shari`ah.
Sheikh Muhammad Al-Mukhtar Al-Shinqiti, Director of the Islamic Center of South Plains, Lubbock, Texas, states: “Photography professionals don’t have to minimize their work to taking passport photos. In an example of marriages, many families are committed, and they do Islamic marriages or functions that do not show haram (unlawful) scenes. Photographers can do that for sure.
As for taking photos in marriages where women are not dressing properly, it is haram for photographers to take pictures or videotape them, but if they can arrange for a female photographer to take, print, and develop pictures, that can be permissible.”
