Abe was a dream to work with. His laid back demeanor and creative genius resulted in the most amazing wedding photos. We never felt like the poses were staged or static, but rather, he captured our true personalities. I can assure you, you cannot go wrong by booking Abe!

Abe is truly the best. We put so much faith in him and were not disappointed! He traveled from DC to photograph our wedding in Raleigh, NC over a weekend that a hurricane was barreling down on us. Didn't even phase him. He was prepared with alternate ideas and locations to take our first look photos (which we had planned to take in the garden) and went above and beyond to make everything work out - while making us feel calm and like the day was even more special (instead of the disaster that it could have been). And all of that shows in the photos, we are glowing and everything looks perfect.

He really captured some amazing, emotional moments from our day - big and small. For the ceremony, he was everywhere at once and caught so many great angles. At the reception, all I had to do was look up and he was there, already anticipating the photo I was going to track him down to take. Once things started rolling, I never had to worry about a thing, he is a professional like no other. He's not pushy, he lets things evolve naturally and gives guidance when needed. Everyone loved him.

We're so grateful to have these photos and to have shared our celebration with Abe. Thank you so much!

I met Abe at the Washington Bridal Showcase at GMU. There were so many photographers to choose from, most of them passed out their reading material and went on to pull out their calendars and would say something close to, "Yes, there is availability that weekend but we book up fast, if you want us, you have to book now." Abe was different, very humble and modest, eager for me to choose him but not pushy. I did meet with a few photographers, they all had me go out to their offices, one made me feel they didn't really need my business, another had me wait 20+ minutes even though I made an appointment but not Abe! He was willing to meet me at a public place that I chose so I was very comfortable and he was so excited and that made me excited! I have come to realize that there are two types of photographers, those who are in it strictly for the financial gain and those who are in it because they truly love their craft, Abe is the latter and the proof is in his photos.

I made the best decision choosing Abe! He was so professional, yet laid back and super flexible. It rained the morning of my wedding and my eye makeup was a disaster but Abe was able to clean up the pictures without compromising the natural beauty in each photo. His eye for creativity has resulted in an amazing product! All the guests that attended the wedding had nothing but great things to say about him, even a bridesmaid who has been is in the photography business for years was raving about him! My wedding was in September 2015, it's now May 2016 and I am still hearing good things from friends and family! Each time I look through my wedding photos, they put a big smile on my face! I know I will still feel that way when I am old and grey. I definitely feel that I got way more than my money's worth with Abe, his love for photography shows in his persona and the deliverance in his product, which I promise, will not disappoint!

If I could give Abram more than 5 stars, I would! He is a great photographer and so friendly. I highly recommend him and plan to book him for all future photography needs.

He took engagement photos of me and my fiance with our two dogs, who are a bit rambunctious :) Abram did a fantastic job with them and really captured "us" in his photographs. When he showed us a sneak peak of the photos, we were ecstatic. I couldn't believe how well he did with our dogs. He was patient and creative in finding ways to get their attention and focus.

I also really trusted him to make us look good. He took charge (but in such an extremely nice way) and didn't hesitate to tell us where to place our arms or hands, how to bend my leg, how to position our heads, etc. This is something I really wanted from a photographer, as I don't know what looks best. His ability to capture light is impressive too. We took photos in the woods, and he found pockets of light and ways to make the environment so beautiful. The composition and colors were stunning.

Looking for photographers in the DC area is overwhelming, and we are SO glad we found him. We highly recommend him to anyone!

We cannot say enough good things about Abe! The photos he took are beyond amazing. He is so talented at seeing the great shot and capturing it. I was also impressed with how hard he worked the whole day. Prior to the wedding he reached out to us with some suggested shots that he typically does at weddings. He let us take away or add to as we wanted and made sure to get everything all the shots we asked for even though time was tight. His use of light and space was superb. All the shots were well framed. Beyond that, Abe is such a nice guy and an outstanding professional. He is responsive and willing to do what it takes to make you happy. If you want a great photographer, hire Abe!

If you are looking for a photographer, you don't need to look any further. Abe is a class act with an eye for the business. With all the stress of planning a wedding, he did not create any photo stress. He would respond to my inquiries promptly, and everything was scheduled with ease.

I cannot speak highly enough of Abe's professionalism. Neither my husband or myself have ever felt very comfortable with being in front of the camera. Abe was early to our wedding, calm, instructive, and personable. We were instantly put at ease, and that is evident in our photos.

Overall, Abe is a wonderful person, as well as photographer. He takes care of his clients in the midst of insanity that a wedding day brings. When you hire Abe, you're not only getting a photographer for the day, but someone who truly cares about you. For all that he brings to the table, he is worth every penny. You can tell he loves what he does, and I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again.

My family is not easy to please. Mother, with high, probably unrealistic expectations of all her service providers may have been especially so at the wedding of her first daughter.

So, Greg and I decided we were going to get married in Greece. After parents Abe was the first person I called. I'd watched his skill and passion in photography grow since we were in our first year of college. Deciding to get married in the little fishing village where my dad grew up, I knew would be a beautiful way to honor my heritage. I also knew that with five months notice, many friends and family wouldn't be able to make it.

That's why I called Abe.

In a destination wedding, what do you have? You have such a rich experience, at such a beautiful location. With loved ones missing from the trip, you have a need to bring those back home into the experience.

Abe did that -- with his camera. Speeches at rehearsal dinner, mom lacing up the corset on my dress, the look of Greg's face placing his cuff link and tugging on his jacket. Of course, at weddings things don't go according to plan. When my groomsmen couldn't tie their bowties, and my dad was still shaving when we were scheduled for photos... Abe was a calm and professional presence. The lost time from delay was more than made up for in exquisite photos.

I called Abe last week when my mother saw the photos. The naysayer from the start, she was wowed by them. She said, "I don't understand how he could have been at so many places at the same time. He didn't miss anything!" I would recommend Abe to a friend. In fact, my sister just told me she is getting married, and in the same conversation, she asked me for Abe.

I have one recommendation to brides: we had a day of scenic photos the day after the wedding for the beach. It was awesome, and I look prettier, because I was so calm. More than that, it offered a redo, for an important moment with my mom that was lost in the chaos of the day of the wedding.

Abe was such a pleasure and joy to work with! He took time to get to know us, which made us feel so comfortable around him the day of our wedding. He and his assistant were both prompt, professional, and very non-invasive, which is so important for a wedding day. He made me and my wedding party and family feel really special. You could see the passion as he captured the wedding, and the photos are nothing short of breathtaking. The energy, vibrancy, and love in his shots makes me feel like I am re-living the best day of my life every time I look at them. This dude is pure magic, you will not be disappointed.
