Your experience begins with your initial consultation, where we learn what matters most to you. Listening gives us a good understanding of your expectations so we can exceed them.

You may easily add an engagement shoot, additional event coverage, and handcrafted, flush-mount wedding and parent albums.

At Akbar Sayed Photography we do so much more than document your wedding. Every video we create is expertly edited into a poignant, beautiful movie of your wedding day. Featuring a stunning highlight reel that takes you on a journey of emotions and memories, and a longer format film that captures every important moment and event, we provide you with two gorgeous films to share with family and friends. We also offer the option to add-on same day edits, 60 second teasers (ready within 48 hours of your wedding), raw footage and drone cinema. While drone cinematography within DC is forbidden by the FAA, there are several places where drones are legal to fly and we know all about them. We are ready to help you find the right locations and backdrops to enhance your wedding film.

Wedding cinematography prices in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington D.C. start at $4,000 for half day events and average around $5,750.

We know from experience that digital files are rarely looked at once they’ve been shared, and that albums are viewed over and over again for generations. Quality printing and wall art simply outlast and outshine digital images when it comes to professional photography.

With technology changing at lighting speed, we want you to have photography that will stand the test of time, made from the highest-quality materials from the best album company in the world. That’s why we offer stunning 10” by 10” leather-bound books from Queensberry, custom made and hand-crafted for you and your parents, modified to fit your desires.

Choose up to 86 of your most beautiful and compelling photos for your albums, and we’ll send them to our expert design team. The final result will be works of art that are timeless, 20, 50 and 100 years from now. Embossed with your names on the cover and printed on the highest quality paper, you’ll be proud to show them off in the years ahead.
