Raves and Reviews
Akbar was one of the best wedding decisions we made, hands down! From our first meeting, Akbar made us feel completely comfortable and you could see his genuine interest in us as a couple and in our wedding. He was patient and flexible with us throughout the planning process. On the wedding day, Akbar and his assistant went above and beyond to not only take amazing photos, but also to make sure we were comfortable and happy, even feeding us bites of granola bar in between photos and covering me with a shawl during our freezing November outdoor shoot.
Akbar was by far our FAVORITE vendor at our wedding! Everything from his professionalism, attention to detail, responsiveness, and the quality of the final product was absolutely perfect and more than we could have asked for. Akbar went above and beyond making all of our guests feel comfortable in front of the camera – he even got my mom to smile, and she never smiles in pictures! All of our guests raved about Akbar and his team, how nice they were and how comfortable they made everyone feel. This resulted in stunning photos that we are very pleased with. We were pretty nervous about booking our photographer, as it’s one of the most important vendors you will end up hiring, but I highly encourage you to book Akbar – you won’t regret it!!
You guys were the best decision I made for my wedding.
We couldnt have been happier with the results. aside from his endearing personality, he was very understanding of what we liked. At times we forgot he was even there, everything felt very natural.
Working with so much passion and enthusiasm, Akbar Sayed Photography exceeded my expectations! We had a lot of fun, full of laughs and smiles (even joyful tears) which makes all the difference from just a photoshoot to making a connection with the flash that captures it all.
We were very pleased with Akbar Sayed Photography. The photos were amazing and he was very fun to work with. He made us feel comfortable with the whole experience. We highly recommend him.
Akbar is very professional, friendly and helpful. He made us feel very comfortable during our portraits.
Akbar and Nadia went above and beyond for us taking on roles and tasks that not only helped capture each and every moment better, but also helped make our whole event genuinely better. They offered very helpful advice for each day, and their work ethic and effort for each event just amplified and made each event even better for us. They even went so far to make sure that me and my wife were always doing ok, bringing us water, and making sure we had food during the event and even made sure we had food in our room for after the festivities. If you are looking for a photographer whose not only quality of work is amazing, but who takes the extra steps to help improve your event but who also makes sure to make you as comfortable as possible while capturing the best angles and candid pictures you can, then look no further because Akbar and Nadia are it.
I, seriously, could not have picked a better person to take my wedding photographs than Akbar. He was always in the right place at the right time, capturing every moment, no matter what it took.
I appreciated that they scoped out the photo shoot locations ahead of time and came ready with a lot of great ideas for poses we could re-create. I also appreciated that, at the last minute, they altered their schedules to accommodate mine and helped me make the most of the time I had with them.
It is difficult to find words that capture how fantastic Akbar and Nadia were. At the end of the three night event, we realized it was not simply about the photography services — it was about the care and attention that they poured into every single aspect of the wedding.
They traveled to another state for my event and were extremely flexible to accommodate our venue/family needs.
They are not obtrusive at all, and for a lot of the pictures – I did not even know that they were photographing the moment. Both Akbar and Nadia are extremely professional, hard working, and very kind. It was such a blessing to have them be a part of our day, and they have captured our special day so poignantly that we can not thank them enough for all the lovely memories.
We, as well as our guests, fell in love with their energy. Of course, the photos turned out to be gorgeous
Their level of expertise in photography is unmatched and I would highly recommend Akbar Sayed Photography to any of you that may be thinking about an event that you may want photographed in the future. If you have any doubts, simply talk to them, I’m sure their lively spirit will easily change your mind!
They did a wonderful job of capturing not only the formal poses but the candid moments we will always remember. They helped to put us at ease during a few hectic days reminding us to keep on smiling and keeping us laughing throughout our wedding weekend! Could not have asked for more from Akbar and Nadia, it was a pleasure to work with them!
Akbar did a phenomenal job capturing some of those people who run away from the camera, including my dad. I don’t know how, but you have captured all of this signature facial expressions and body gestures in the pictures…
I wore my abuelita’s wedding dress. My abuelita (grandma) was my abuelito’s (grandpa) winning prize in life and he left his love, Mexico, behind only and only for my abuelita and to marry her. They were married for 58 years. Unfortunately my grandfather passed away just a month and a half after Ehson and I’s wedding. But on his last days my mom showed him Akbar’s pictures and the premium quality, the candid moments captured, and especially the picture recreating his wedding photo really touched him and lifted his spirit after months of sickness. Thank you for that and part-taking in creating joy for my sick grandfather.
We wouldn’t have had anyone else. You were amazing.
He brings lots of experience and truly has a passion for photography.
