Neal and Carla Freed opened their Bethesda studio in 1996, and Freed Photography has since grown to become Washington’s premier award-winning studio.

We are fortunate enough to have a team of 8 amazing photographers, hailing from a range of disciplines including photojournalism, fine art and commericial photogaphy. Each photographer shares the passion of Neal & Carla Freed, which is to isolate the truly memorable moment, to pull out of the ordinary, what Henri Cartier Bresson, called “the decisive moment.” To artistically capture in a photograph, the image that tells a story so that when you look at that image years from now, you’ll recall every thought and feeling as though you were in the middle of that moment, now.

One of the best parts of our job is getting to know our clients. We want to meet you and hear all about your wedding vision and inspiration! We invite you to call, e-mail or visit our studio anytime.

"Freed was amazing to work with... it was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding" - Kara K

Voted Best Photographers for the last 15 years in by Washingtonian Magazine.

Freed Photography did a splendid job photographing our 10/22/16 wedding. All of their administrative staff was courteous and responsive. Tatiana was the suggested photographer for the day and she did a SUPERB job capturing the day. Her style is crisp and clean. She handled our wedding with poise and professionalism. I told her our venue had very high ceilings and so she accounted for that with off camera lighting. The turn around for edits was also insanely fast. I would highly recommend Freed Photography!!

Jennifer and her assistant were amazing. One took overall pictures, the other detail shots. They showed up early and were photographing the entire day including getting ready in the bridal suite, first look, family photos, and reception. They were everywhere but not at all in the way. I cannot wait to see the final shots.

We had the absolute pleasure of working with Bryan Blanken from Freed Photography and could not be any happier he was amazing! My husband and I had our wedding at the Ritz Carlton in VA and it was extremely important to us to have a photographer that would be able to capture the details and cultural aspects of the Persian/Greek wedding that we were having. We honestly cannot put into words how happy we are with the pictures. They are stunning and I'm not sure what else I can say about him other than WOW!! Bryan is a true professional, has a true passion for what he does, a great eye for detail, amazing at taking the lead in setting up poses, and is extremely talented. Bryan has blown us away and we will forever be grateful to him for the amazing moments that he captured on our special day. Freed photography is an amazing company and although we were contracted to work with another photographer they were extremely professional and amazing in working things out for us. I definitely recommend Bryan and Freed Photography and know that I will use them for all future events!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such spectacular and breathtaking pictures!!

Bryan Blanken was amazing! My wife and I had our wedding at the The Hay-Adams in Washington DC. We wanted a photographer that would be able to capture the look and feel of the venue and the wedding we were having. We had interviewed several photographers, looked at their work, but once we met with Bryan, the choice was made. Bryan did our engagement photos along with the wedding photos. The engagement photos were amazing and the wedding photos were even better! Bryan really has an amazing eye for things. I'm not sure what else I can say about him other than WOW! You can't get anyone better than Bryan. Bryan is a true professional, has a true passion for what he does, and is extremely talented. He's a must if you want to capture your engagement and wedding in amazing detail then there is no other choice. Side note: If you decide to hire Bryan and he says "I want to try something" go with it. Trust me. You will not be disappointed.

I highly recommend Freed! We had Jenifer and Tasha and they were amazing and photos were gorgeous. Jenifer spoke with me several times before the wedding and was so patient and helpful in going through details and answering my many questions with thought and care. She and Tasha kept things moving but were also calming and warm on the big day. And most importantly, even though our wedding week was during the baltimore riots and the curfew, they showed up for us without question and even took a pic of us with the national guard. The pictures are so beautiful and captured the day perfectly. And they came back very quickly! Highly highly recommend!

Pablo was our photographer and he and his assistant (Sergey) took incredible photos! They captured everything and I've had several people tell me that we have the best wedding photos that they've ever seen! I couldn't be happier with our wedding photos (it was very tough to choose a couple for framing because there were so many amazing shots)! Pablo was also very funny/personable and kept everyone laughing through the group pictures!

John and Freed Photography was amazing to work with from start to finish! Photography is the most important way ensure you have the best memories of your special day that will last forever, so it is important to use a photographer that you know you can't go wrong with. Freed worked with us to ensure we had a photographer with a style that we liked. We met John at our engagement photo session and after getting those amazing pictures, we knew he was going to capture our wedding exactly how we wanted. He was completely non-intrustive during the wedding day, yet he got pictures that we had no idea he had captured. He has an artistic eye to figure out beautiful shots. He was so professional, showing up an hour earlier than his contract and when the wedding was slightly behind schedule, he stayed late to ensure he got the shots that were important to us.
