    Memorable Wedding Weekend

    From the start, Akbar amazed us in the initial interview by being super friendly, professional and also pointing out things that we weren’t even considering in our journey to finding a photographer for our magical weekend.

    Of course with how patient he was in listening to our requirements while reassuring that we were not being bride and groomzillas, we knew we had to go with him.

    He made sure to meticulously gather all of important aspects of the weekend from us. We took the time to plan literally every minute of the timeline with specific call outs for key moments. There was also the Hours spent getting the most important photo combinations down on a piece of paper with his guidance. And he delivered on the portraits as well as capturing the candid moments that make the weekend special.

    Fast forward to a month after the wedding and we find ourselves consistently checking the photos and cinema he provided because they so perfectly capture that feeling we experienced during the wedding weekend. Akbar made the greatest time our lives something we can continue to keep enjoying for the rest of time.

    Above and Beyond

    Akbar went above and beyond during our consultation, he got to know us, offered REAL advice and insight in answering our questions, and answered questions we had not even thought of. He helped us determine the number of hours of photographer coverage we would actually need (many other vendors tried to push us into more coverage and more photographers than that our small 20 person wedding really needed) and helped us work out other logistical questions that other vendors did not ever bring up. Due to the short notice of our wedding (we consulted just a few weeks before our wedding date), Akbar was unavailable to shoot for us, so if you’re reading this review do book him out EARLY!

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!

  • RIMAS FILMS Wedding Videographers

    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!
