Hi, I am Abram Landes, a wedding and event photographer located by Washington, D.C.  
 
While I love working as a photographer, it is my mission to change the negative perceptions of wedding photography to an aspect to look forward to within your wedding day!  
 
My objective is to take away any apprehension and replace it with anticipation to see the finished images. I do this by using vivid colors, energetic compositions, being there for just the right *emotional* moments, and by showing the couple looking amazing in every image I deliver.  
 
Going into ten years of photography has lead me share incredible experiences with my clients: being stuck overnight rock climbing in Colorado with a wedding party, wedding sessions near the U.S. Captiol Building, visiting China for a wedding, and recently photographing performance headliners and high-end galas in the DC area over the past few years. All that to say: I love catching the vision of what a couple has for their day and producing high-quality work that capture their event perfectly.  
 
Taking risks by reinterpreting wedding photography has been inherent in my work, and being a part of Fearless only pushes me further to take bigger risks as a photographer. Safe photography rarely produces amazing work. I am always being pushed to hunt for new and exciting ideas, especially through being a part of this amazing community.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

Located right outside of Washington, D.C., I have photographed weddings far away from home, including California, Colorado, Greece, and China.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I've been photographing weddings for ten years strong, and estimate that I've photographed over three hundred as the main photographer.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Modern, vivid, and photojournalistic. I pull inspiration from both classic poses and spur-of-the-moment ideas.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

Most of my wedding clients opt for 8-10 hours of coverage with me and an associate photographer, and end up with 700 images on an archival USB drive, a 10x10 album, and a portfolio of prints. This package is -4500 with this options.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

Skype me! Or let's find a good spot to meet up in the DC area for drinks.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Arts with Honors from the Pennsylvania State University ('05), and a long time member of the Professional Photographers of America and the Wedding Photojournalist Association.
