    10/10 great photos, great person

    My husband and I loved working with Akbar! Our photos are gorgeous and he really helped us by walking through planning the photo sessions (i.e. first look, family pics, etc.) before the wedding. He is an extremely responsive communicator and has such a great personality - important for putting people at ease while you're taking photos. He absolutely prioritized the photos we wanted most. We also did our engagement photos with Akbar, which I would highly recommend, as it was a great way to give some feedback on what types of photos we liked the best before the wedding. Really great experience!

    Amazing Photographer!!

    Akbar Syed Photography shot our engagement photos and our wedding photos. We already knew how talented he was (as he did holiday photos previously) but we were so blown away by the results of both our engagement and wedding photos. They were soo beautiful and better than we could have imagined!!!! He made all the photo shoots so easy and helped us be comfortable in the moments (even the awkward poses) and we had so much fun during all the photos. He's so easy to work with, with large and small groups and even with our fur baby during our wedding photos. Our pictures were stunning and more beautiful than we could have asked for! Akbar also produced a wedding video for us and it brings tears of joy to my eyes every time I watch the video!! We highly highly recommend!!

Owner / Lead Photographer

When people ask me what I do for a living I tell them that I’m a registered nurse and a wedding photographer. Most people immediately comment on what different professions those are, but my response is that they’re actually quite similar. As an RN in the emergency room, I have to be ready to anticipate the needs of my patients, be watchful, capable, empathetic and comforting. Now step outside of the ER and into a wedding day or photo shoot, and there’s not a single person who wouldn’t want those same characteristics in their photographer.

I'm a proud father, husband and business owner, and I love the wonderful couples, families and business I get to work with as a photographer. I know the value that authentic, timeless photography can bring to our lives and I look forward to learning how my team and I can capture what’s most important to you!

I’ve been a wedding photographer for 11 years, but I’ve been an artist since I could hold a pencil – and I’ve been in love with stories for just as long. Of all the ways to create a life around storytelling and art, I’m so glad to have found this one: weddings are filled with stories both intimate and profound, and with endless elements of beauty that delight the artist in me. I love the challenge of seeking, finding and capturing the beauty at your wedding, and telling your story as I see it unfolding before me.

At home, when I’m not editing, blogging, or planning, I’m doing the mom thing with my two fast-growing boys. I’m lucky to be able to explore most of my hobbies with them or for them: cooking, reading, being outdoors, and making all kinds of art. I feel so blessed to be able to do what I love both at home and at work!

The luxurious Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner hosted a beautiful wedding reception of a couple, that RIMAS FILMS was so honored to film recently. A gorgeous celebration of love and unification of two wonderful families was photographed by Akbar Sayed Photography. From the moment we started capturing the outstanding bridal party I could tell I will enjoy working with Akbar. He was friendly, humble and very professional. Through the day we shared couple of laughs and good shots. Akbar snapped away at the most important moments of the reception and managed to catch the tiniest details and the mood of the guests. He seemed like a down to earth guy, who really enjoys what he does and made sure everyone around him were enjoying the experience too! Akbar Sayed Photography is a must for your luxurious wedding!
