IRENE ABDOU PHOTOGRAPHY, LLC - 2011-2012 BRIDE'S CHOICE AWARD WINNER Fusing fine art & photojournalism to create images that are simply...unforgettable.
Memories don't have to fade with time. We offer wedding & event photojournalism and family portraiture in unique locations that are meaningful to you, creating beautiful works of art...family heirlooms...memories that make your heart stop a beat every time you look at them. And if you have a story to be told, then we may be just the storyteller you've been searching for. People say that we have a gift for capturing emotions, and by fusing fine art with photojournalism, we will tell your story without interfering with the flow of your day, while also ensuring that you look your very best. Your photographic experience will be fun and memorable, and more importantly, you'll get to enjoy all the special moments of your day.

This takes passion and hard work from our end. So it's a good thing that while photography is our full-time endeavor, it's not a job to us. We put heart and soul into every single photograph we create, and we guarantee that we'll care more, and that it shows. And so, if you can only remember three words about us, then remember these:
quality, artistry & caring And if these three words are as important to you as they are to us, then let's chat about how we can help you. ...Because when it truly matters...when you care enough to want the very best...then there's simply no choice to be made. So what are you waiting for?

Words can't describe how amazing working with Irene was! Irene came highly recommended to us from our wedding venue and also from a very close family friend who knew someone who used her. From the day we met her, we knew we wanted her to be our photographer to capture all of our special moments. She was extremely professional, and took the time to get to know us. We just had our engagement photos taken in Old Town Alexandria at the end of September, and we could not be happier! All of the photos were exactly what we wanted and more. Best of all, we had so much fun taking them! Finding a great photographer was extremely important to us since photos are the one thing that we will have forever to remember these moments. Irene is a true professional and we highly recommend her to anyone. A huge thank you to Irene for making us feel so special and taking such beautiful engagement photos of us. We can't wait to work with her again for our wedding!

Irene was a pleasure to work with for our wedding. Her pre-planning work and attention detail was great. I very much appreciated the worksheet we had to complete prior to the wedding. I felt very confident leading up to our wedding that everything would go smoothly on the day of the event. And it did!

We took our formal pictures prior to the ceremony which I highly recommend. It allowed us to simply enjoy ourselves during the wedding. Irene stuck to the timeline throughout the evening.

We received the deliverables prior to the deadline dates set forth in the contract. We love the pictures we received and were very excited to share them with our friends and family.

I can't say enough good things about Irene. From the first moment I contacted a year ago, up until the photos arrived at our doorstep, Irene was a true professional and thought of every detail. She was so easy to work with and very flexible, even calling me a few days before the wedding to offer up a back-up plan for our bride and groom photos because it was calling for rain on our big day. She was so easy to work with on the big day as well.

When we received our photos, we had tears streaming down our faces while we looked at them. They were awesome! She had captured the moments so precisely and beautifully!

IRENE IS AWESOME! My hubby & I booked Irene for engagement & wedding photos. Working with her was our best wedding vendor decision. We selected Irene for her technical expertise & great customer service. TECHNICAL EXPERTISE: My hubby is a photography fanatic & has a critical eye for color/contrast & sought out Irene’s service because she accurately captures various skin tones (from very dark to fair & the tones in between, & a white wedding gown) all in the same photo w/out anyone appearing washed out or overly shadowed. CUSTOMER SERVICE: In addition to being technically savvy, Irene has great customer service skills. We asked tons of questions throughout our time with Irene (from our initial meeting through receipt of our wedding photos) & she never made us feel rushed, or unimportant either during a shoot or during our text messages, phone convos, or emails. More importantly, Irene always worked to make us feel comfortable in front of the camera, especially when we felt awkward as the center of attention. Irene also explained her process for photographing us (e.g., potential poses & candids, photo shoot location, lighting, etc.) to ensure we understood the service we purchased from her. She also accommodated our requests regarding time, location, poses, etc. She consistently responded to emails generally within a few hours, & my text messages were returned promptly. BOUDOIR PHOTOS: As a surprise to my hubby & I booked Irene for boudoir photos. I was nervous about the shoot, but Irene eliminated the awkwardness making it possible for me to enjoy the session—she did this by picking up on my hesitation & only suggesting poses I was comfortable with. Irene was punctual to each of our sessions & arrived w/ her camera tools, a smile, & tons of infectious positive energy! Irene embodies friendliness & professionalism. She was a joy to work with. Irene is worth every penny & our photos are GREAT! If you can afford her, do yourself the favor & try to book her!

We couldn’t be happier with the pictures that Irene took at our wedding. She took fantastic portraits, candid as well as formal, her photos capture the beauty of our wedding venue (Cathedral of St Matthew the Apostle) and she used a variety of techniques that result in a beautiful visual narrative of our wedding day. Many of the guests told us, on the day of the wedding, that they were very impressed with her professionalism and discretion, and after the wedding, with the quality of her pictures.

Irene did an incredible job photographing our wedding. One of the things that impressed us the most was how thorough and detail oriented she is--she met with us to review our experiences and feelings about being photographed, made a special trip to our venue to scope out locations, and met with us again after the wedding to help us choose photos. The quality of her photography is truly outstanding. She is warm and personable and it was a pleasure to have her as a collaborator. We highly recommend her.
