I was born and raised in South Arlington, VA. I was a safety patrol at Randolph elementary school. I was a talented wrestler at Thomas Jefferson middle school. And…

But when it was time from me to go to high school I traveled to Africa, Lagos Nigeria to be specific. During my travels, I learned new languages. I reconnected with distant relatives. I experienced the beautiful imagery of Africa. And I developed a deeper appreciation for family, life, and culture.

If I’m honest, Africa is where the seed was sown; it is the place where my love of imagery and photography came to manifest. There wasn't a day that would go by that wouldn't lend itself to producing the most beautiful and provocative photographs. At that moment, I realized that I wanted to document and create art with photographs. It would take another ten years for this dream to manifest. But it happened.

I love entrepreneurship, tea, photographing people, traveling, rugby, football and chilling with family and friends. I have a beautiful wife named Laura. And we have a beautiful baby boy named Isaiah, who is my smile waiting to happen. Read less

Akins was a pleasure to work with. We got a great value package, which included engagement photos and an album. Akins has a great personality and he really brings out the best in his photo subjects. He also brought a second photographer with him for our wedding (Mike) who was just as amazing. Akins and Mike took care of prep, ceremony, posed, and reception photos. Thanks Akins!

Akins Lawal Photography...I cannot say enough good things about it. On my wedding day we had a tornado watch. The weeks after the wedding I was concerned how some of those pictures turned out, was even thinking man those pictures are not going to be good. BUT MAN when I saw a few shots I was speechless. Highly recommended just look at a few of my shots.

Akins was by far the best photographer we interviewed for our engagement and wedding photos. We were never uncomfortable during our 3 hour photo shoot and had a blast doing it! Our wedding photos came out amazing! he used both digital and old school film to capture our biggest day. Not only did he get us our pictures in many formats (computer, disk, printed, book) he got it to us super fast!

I know for the rest of our special moments, we WILL be booking Akins to capture it in his artistic, yet classic eye.

Akins did a fantastic job at my wedding. He was easy to work with, professional, creative and great to work with before/during/after the event. I felt assured and comfortable throughout the entire process. The photos taken at the wedding showcased his ability to think outside the box and still capture classic, timeless memories. I have received countless compliments on the quality of the pictures. I would work with him again in a heartbeat!
