We were not camera folks, yet he made everything feel natural and fun.
Choosing Akbar as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
He not only took stunning pictures of our wedding but told a story with them. He also made my husband and I feel very comfortable on my wedding day when my nerves were on edge.
Akbar was my photographer for my wedding and I am SO happy I chose him. Not only did he capture the most perfect moments of my wedding weekend, but he’s such an easy person to work with—which is a super important trait to have in your vendors.
He was always unintrusive; you hardly saw him. But the photos he took were works of art. Always capturing important moments in an intimate and aesthetically pleasing manner. Akbar is professional and congenial. He's a pleasure to work with and his photos are warm and reflect the humanity and beauty of his subjects
He would make jokes and relate to us on a personal level to make sure our underlying stress didn't show up in pictures. He was comforting when we needed and shared some of his amazing work with our guests the night of our reception, which was an added bonus! Our family and friends also loved him! Our photos are gorgeous and were edited in a timely manner!
Akbar couldn’t be more amazing as a photographer with his keen eye for framing the perfect photos, and as well as a person – being so comfortable to work with. Akbar was the photographer for my Korean Wedding and I couldn’t be happier with his attention to detail, his dedication to getting the perfect shots, his creativity, talent, patience, and most of all his personability. He kept us on point, hydrated, and accommodated any photos we wanted that we hadn’t mentioned in advance (which he asked – he’s very thorough). Though his first Paebaek (Korean Wedding Tea Ceremony) – the photos came out amazing! He’s truly talented and a joy to work with. To put it simply he’s the Luxury experience of photography.
We can’t say enough about how stunning his pictures were and how happy we are with how they turned out. As we were going through pictures from our first main wedding event, we couldn’t stop from saying “Wow Akbar” every 3rd or 4th picture. Both his candid shots and posed shots came out really well, and we were especially pleased with our first look pictures before each event – they were super artistic and unique in our opinion.
He made our guests look extra fantastic and took a nice mix of staged and relaxed photos, and capturing the types of photos we wanted. The photos had a realistic style to them (us but better!) and avoided the common photo styles of washing everything out like an Instagram post or super saturating everything with color. People look natural and comfortable and he even got Keerti’s dad to smile for photos!
From the beginning of our interactions - Akbar and his team were incredible. At every juncture in the process, we felt the most individualized and tailored service as possible. And the final photos and videos proved it. The process began with a questionnaire, and then included a few video calls to discuss details which ensured that Akbar got to know myself, my husband, and our families. This made a complete difference in the product that we received at the end - he and his team captured every important and memorable moment - with a special focus on those closest to us. Beyond the process, I cannot say enough about the ease of working with Akbar and his team - their demeanor resulted in them truly becoming part of the family!
