Introduction: My name is Deva Akman, I have been specialized in Wedding and Portrait Photography for last 9 years. More info can be found on and Google search. We work as husband and wife wedding team and service in NY, NJ, CT. I offer different packages my 3 Hour Package starts from $1250. We are fully booked fir 2021, still booking for 2022. *** Little photography insights for those who just started to plan their wedding; In 2020, for a two-hour wedding photo shoot in New York City, the average price you can expect to pay the photographer is approximately $1,524. On average a one-hour wedding shoot will cost $953 and a four-hour shoot will cost $2,667.*** So overall you are getting huge discounts from wedding vendors on Thumbtack. But keep in mind Weddings are "once in a lifetime" events, I recommend hiring highly specialized pro to have peace of mind knowing your are in good hands. My passion for photography comes from a love for people. Life is short, and precious moments are fleeting. Photographs can capture and preserve the important feelings and moments for us so that we may cherish them more deeply and never forget. I am a photographer who loves what she does and see photography as a meaningful investment into the lives of others!

Deva was really great to work with! She didn’t require us to manage the process which made the day stress free! We can’t wait to see her photos of our day!

Deva is an artist with a passion for perfection. We asked for a 3 hour session for our wedding and Deva captured every emotion and individual with breathtaking beauty. We recommend her to any one who needs a photographer for any event or life cycle experience!!

Deva was amazing to work with. I wished she shot both of our weddings in Boston and in NJ. She showed up early and made everyone feel comfortable with what she was doing. She did her job with a smile the whole entire time and without being pushy she guided us through what we need to do for the photos. You should definitely HIRE her for your special event.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Portrait pricing starts from $300 Wedding Photography packages starts from $1250 Most of my wedding packages include below *Consultations *Engagement Session *Wedding album *Prints Some of my wedding packages also include below on top *Reception Welcome Panel *Thank You Cards *Parent's albums Feel free to text me and ask question on social media If you give me details I create you the best package possible.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I schedule consultation with the client either over the phone or Skype for session planning. While these are extra steps, it is an opportunity to connect on a personal level for a perfect photo session experience. I like to get to know my client, getting to know each other not only makes the photo sessions more fun but also allows me to create great images suit my client's personality. I often ask myself if this is the best way to portray my client or should I try another perspective, exposure, or add a new element? Is my composition and background right? I take the ideas as a starting point and add my own personality, perspective, and creativity to the portrait sessions. Overall, we make sure to consider every detail of the photo session in order to ensure it is the best it can possibly be.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My photography education started before digital. When I lived in overseas, I have taken film photography and darkroom classes. I started digital photography in 2011 with private lessons from a fashion photographer. I have assisted a wedding photographer, that provided on the job training. Finally I went to International Center of Photography in NYC. Addition to all these I take several online classes, PPA Workshops, every year.
