Introduction: Hi Y'all! My name is Syed and I am the founder of Token Photography. I've been a professional photographer for 3 years but a hobbyist photographer for the past decade. What I love most about my craft is the artistic expression that it allows. I believe in being a photographer with a diverse portfolio, constantly working in new environments keeps me on my toes and the ideas fresh so you can guarantee no two photos will be alike! My clients have trusted me to capture everything from weddings to branding material to grow their business. I would love to discuss how I can be the photographer that's been missing from your life, lets create!

I cannot say enough great things about Syed! Just hit HIRE right now + watch your ‘any subject’ be captured in a realistic, creative, and beautiful way! I had a photoshoot snafu and reached out to Syed to step in and fix it. There was only a small window to capture my very first ever art mural before the house was sold. Syed showed up and worked with the owners and captured my mural in a way that makes it seem brand new and so beautiful especially considering I painted it over 20 years ago! He also took some beautiful real estate and portrait pics as a total bonus I wasn’t expecting!!! His photography skills are second to none! AND his people skills and willingness to work with his clients and go above and beyond is also a reason to hire him immediately! Thank you Syed!

Syed was everything we were looking for in a photographer for our website. We gave him what kind of vibe we were looking for and he met our needs exactly. All we had to do was show up with what products we wanted photographed, and he took it from there. It was great to work with someone who came prepared with ideas and knowledge of the area and how to make our models look just right.

Highly recommend Syed/Token Photography! We hired him to photograph my sister's wedding + reception and he was phenomenal--professional, friendly and very talented! My entire family loved him. We were very impressed with how well he blended into the event (like a fly on the wall) when necessary, but then also took charge to organize group photos, etc. as well. He did an excellent job of ensuring that the bride felt comfortable & confident. I will also note that he went above and beyond just as person! He volunteered to give some family members a ride from the church to the reception location and also gave my mom some great photography tips (as she had her own camera and was trying to learn). For whatever you need, Syed is your guy! :)

I have never had my pictures professionally taken and Syed made me comfortable and provided tips before the session and during to help to process go smoothly! He shows you the photos throughout the session which helps you see what works and what doesn’t in terms of posing. He was also very personable and easy to work with! All in all, it was a great experience despite my novelty and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a professional, talented photographer!

Details: Graduation portrait • Candid (captured in the moment) • Traditional / classic (looking directly at the camera) • Natural / environmental (photographed in an outdoor setting) • Outdoors • Digital or online download • My home, venue, etc.

The experience with Syed was awesome. Our daughter felt so comfortable with him. He knew every pose we wanted without even telling him. He’s a perfectionist and takes his time to get the perfect shot! We are so happy with her senior pictures! He’s for sure our new photographer for family photos. He’s affordable and you get the work you’re wanting!!! Book him.. you won’t be disappointed!!!

FAQs

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

    I offer free consultations for new clients. During the consultation you can expect to go over shooting location(s), time, outfits as well as any other logistical work which will help bring your vision to life!

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

    I had two formal years of education in photography. I have also worked very closely with the Houston Center for Photography when it comes to supplemental learning to reinforce my knowledge.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I've always been passionate about photography ever since my early teenage years. I decided to pursue it as a profession when I found myself becoming dissatisfied with my corporate 9-5. I made the jump and never looked back!
