about us

Years Of Experience

From it’s inception 7 years ago, the goal of Akbar Sayed Photography was to ensure that every client receives exceptional customer service and quality products to match.  When you choose to work with the Akbar Sayed Photography team you’re choosing to work with artists whose goal it is to deliver their absolute best at every single wedding.  Our work has been featured in The Knot, South Asian Bride Magazine, Maharani Weddings, Baltimore Bride, Secret Wedding Blog, United With Love, and Grace Ormonde.  We take on a limited number of weddings to insure that your experience leaves you feeling like you are our family.

There are three keys to our vision that are essential to every single photograph and reel of cinema that we collect, below is a quick synopsis.

  • Commitment to fun – Our couple’s must commit to being present and enjoying themselves!  The photos come out better and who doesn’t want to look at photos of happy people!?
  • Natural approach – To put it simply, we’re there to document your day, not to interrupt it.  You’re going to love us, but your love should be focused on your spouse – not us :-).
  • Timelessness – When you choose to hire a professional photographer and cinematographer, you’re not hiring someone take to take instagram and snapchat photos that are going to last 24 hours. You’re choosing to invest in memorializing one of the most important day of your life so that generations to come can be witness to the raw emotion.
