    We had a wonderful experience with Akbar!

    We had Akbar do the photos for our wedding in June 2019. He did a full day of photos including our Hindu ceremony in the morning and our reception in the evening. In total, we had around 350 guests for the ceremony and 250 for the reception. Throughout the day he worked with a second photographer named Geneva. We enjoyed our experiences with Akbar and the photos turned out super well.

    In the run up to the ceremony, he was super personable and brought a relaxed calm to our interactions, even when we weren’t quite relaxed (i.e., most of wedding planning). He worked with us to identify what photos we wanted and to plan out how to get those shots. He also did a good job of working to identify any issues beforehand, including having a game plan to avoid getting too bogged down taking photos with guests.

    On the day, Akbar and Geneva were prompt, happy, and excited despite our early start. During the ceremony and throughout the day, they were available and responsive to us, while also not blocking the view of guests (this was important to us). Akbar did a great job of managing pushy guests, remaining positive while also firmly telling them when it was time to move along (basically being the bad guy so we didn’t have to be). They really took the mental burden off of us and making our guests feel comfortable.

    Most importantly the photos turned out great. 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!

    We would highly recommend Akbar for a friend or family’s wedding. He made our lives easy throughout the process and created some great photos!

    Awesome experience - don't think twice!

    Akbar was absolutely amazing – don’t think twice about hiring him for your wedding! To start off with, he has a very organized, streamlined, and comprehensive communication process leading up to the wedding that gives you great confidence heading into your big day. He has a form in which he asks you all of the right questions, some that you weren’t even thinking of yourself, and gathers all the info he needs on timelines and other important details to lay out the day for you and give recommendations on what he thinks will work best based on how he understands what is important to you. The most important thing in the leadup is that he does not have a set formula – he truly wants to understand what works for you, your partner, and family – and what parts of his photography and the day are most important to you so he can work with you effectively.

    Throughout our entire weekend, he and his team worked super well with us. First off, they all have awesome and lighthearted personalities that make them fun to be around and you truly enjoy the moments you spend with them. To accompany that, he has a great artistic sense that you can see come out before you’ve even seen any of the pictures, as he comes up with great shot ideas in creative places. When taking family and group portraits, he does a great job of taking charge and putting everyone in places and formations that make each individual look great as well as the entire picture come alive. Akbar also really cares about all of the little details – everything from noticing that your dad didn’t smile in yet another group picture to making sure your hands are perfectly placed when taking a picture during your first look. He also does a great job working with all of your other vendors during the day and capturing beautiful shots of all of the things your other vendors are providing – the décor in the hall, the cool food setups, and more.

    And to the most important point – his actual pictures. 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. As an added bonus, he worked with our DJ team to showcase some of the pictures he took from the morning wedding at our reception which many of our guests told us that they loved seeing – we didn’t know he was doing this which was an awesome surprise for us and we loved it. Thank you Akbar for being such an important part of our wedding! We were super bummed when it was all over, but reliving it through your pictures has been awesome. We highly recommend Akbar for anyone who is considering.

    Akbar: One of a kind, amazing, and confident!

    Working with Akbar was one of the best choices we made when it came to our wedding. Akbar is an amazing person and personally takes the time to get to know his clients. His communication skills, personality, and passion for his profession proves why he is great at what he does. We were able to connect with him from the beginning and he made sure he knew exactly what we wanted. We were recommended by our family and friends to make sure we choose a good photographer because our wedding photos and videos are the only things that will last for a lifetime. We know our photos and videos from our big day will be amazing! Not only did we love Akbar, all of our family and friends loved him too! We would definitely recommend Akbar to anyone because his work is amazing!
