  • Asa was amazing to work with! Not only does he specialize in the documentary/candid photos we were looking for, but he also took the promotional photos for our wedding venue, and knew all the best spots for photos. He is very familiar with the DC metro area, and immediately made us comfortable during our engagement photo session at the National Cathedral and at the Kennedy Center. He was very laid back and had great ideas, but was also able to capture the in between moments we were looking for. On the actual wedding day, we had a great time having him there as we got ready, and he was able to get all the shots we wanted for the formal photos, and we still had time to attend the cocktail hour! For our reception he went the extra mile to ensure we had pictures of everyone having a great time, and was able to capture great moments at all angles. His efficiency and ability to seek out great photo opportunities made our pictures ones that we will look back on forever. I highly recommend A... Read more

  • Asa was my photographer for my covid elopement on 6/20/20. The pictures were gorgeous and came back so quickly. Asa was kind and patient with us and never added stress to the day. He decreased my stress with great ideas and easily keeping in touch until the moment I saw my husband.

  • We loved working with Asa since the first time that we met with him we know he was the one. He was so attentive and caring regarding our situation due to COVID-19. He understood what we wanted and adjusted to our budget. We decided to do a virtual wedding but we still wanted our nice wedding picture and some portraits in a nice place. He searched the place for us and we blindly trust him. When we got to the place, we were really impressed with his selection and our pictures end up being perfect. He was such a great communicator, patient, and attentive to our needs. He answered all my emails on a timely manner and address our needs. We are a really introvert couple and we do not like taking so many pictures but ASA make us feel so comfortable that we did not even felt that we were in a photo session. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM!!! Thank you so much, Asa! We are beyond impress with your work!

  • Asa and his assistant were a pleasure to work with. He guided my husband and I through the first look, full of nerves and jitters. He suggested great locations amd made sure we stayed on time. At the reception, my husband and I greeted each guest and somehow, Asa managed to be right there to capture those moments for us. We received some amazing pictures and an amazing album that he prepared for us. I would definitely recommend Asa!

  • Asa is simply the best! From start to finish he's incredibly knowledgeable, creative, and easy to to work with. Asa has an amazing eye for beautiful photographs and you don't even realize he's there! Our engagement and wedding photos captured us perfectly and it felt so natural to be in front of Asa's camera. He had great suggestions for shots and helped us turn our vision into reality. We cannot recommend him enough!

  • We are so glad that we went with Asa for our wedding photographer! We chose him because we really like his candid shots and talking to him was very easy - he has a very relaxed personality, which definitely helped us relax more in our posed shots. We spoke with Asa beforehand and he really listened to the things that were important to us and took the brief to heart. So when we said we loved the architecture of the venue he really worked to involve that in our couple and wedding party shots. And when we said candids of our guests were more important to us - he absolutely delivered! We are also so glad we went for the package with the second photographer as it meant extra coverage of the event and the guests and the two photography styles were very similar. Asa then took the time to format his select shots (which really are some of our favorites!) and has been very open and helpful after the event in formatting any other shots we want blown up to print for the album. Altogether it was a ... Read more

  • Asa was so great to work with and I am so excited to see the final photos! Asa responded right away to my inquiry and continued to be responsive throughout the planning process. He was professional, gave great guidance and did what was needed to get shots throughout the ceremony and reception. For me it was important to get a photographer who would be able to capture authentic moments and the vibe of the event which is a large part of why I chose Asa, and he did not disappoint. He is knowledgeable of his craft and a calming, happy presence. It was a joy to work with him!

    Thank you Danielle! I had so much fun photographing your wedding in Old Town. I especially loved all the kind words your friends and families had for you at the reception. It was touching. I wish you all the best!

  • Asa was amazing to work with; he was professional yet warm. Our entire bridal party enjoyed our time with him. He took over 7,000 photos and still got them back to us in record time. We cannot recommend him enough. What a pleasure to work with and what amazing photos. Thank you, Asa!!

    Thank you so much Jenny.! It was a pleasure to be a part of your wedding. I know it was a little unexpected that the construction was still going on outside and the fountain was closed, but I think we more than made up for it with shots at other beautiful locations around the venue.

  • I was so impressed with Asa and his partner. They showed up on time and took hundreds of photos. My guests laughed and said they hoped I wasn't paying him by the shot. He took so many. He knew exactly what my daughter wanted and got the shots without being in the way!

    Thank you Jane! I really appreciate the kind words. I always enjoy being a fly on the wall capturing candid shots, it's one of my favorite parts.

  • Asa did a phenomenal job capturing the essence and beauty of our wedding day! His praise was reasonable, he was extremely professional, responsive, and competent. We didn't doubt for a second what we were getting from Asa. He also has strong work ethic and an eye for capturing the right moment(s). Asa was always very flexible with our wants/needs. Use him for your wedding and other professional events, I promise you, you will not regret it. Highly recommend Asa to others and we would love to have him capture more of our memories down the road.

  • Oh my goodness! I cannot say enough great things about Asa and By Asa Photography. We are from Minnesota and planned a destination wedding in D.C. at the D.C. War Memorial and our dinner reception in Old Town Alexandria. Asa helped us prepare for what we could expect when we arrived. Not knowing the area was nerve wracking but knowing Asa's experience and high recommendation put our minds at ease. On the day of the wedding he came to our hotel and captured all the small moments of getting ready! Little moments I did not even know he was capturing that when we received our photos later it was so special to see :) I am truly thankful for this. When we arrived at the wedding site, he helped coordinate our group pictures easily and served as a guide to the area for us out of towners! After the ceremony he took my new hubby and I around the National Mall and took some of the most beautiful photos I could have ever imagined. We got to do some mini sight seeing as a new couple and this was ... Read more

    It was my pleasure, Breanna. Thank you for choosing me to capture your special day in DC! It was so much fun to travel with you and your family around the Mall and across the Potomac on the ferry. If you're ever back in DC and need anything else, please don't hesitate to call.

  • We are over the moon that we had Asa capture our wedding, as he exceeded our already high expectations! He truly was a "ninja" capturing shots from cool angles and made sure to ask we got all the shots we wanted at each stage of the day. He was extremely easy to work with and professional, and his co-photographer colleague was also fantastic! We got our photos back afterwards in record time and are currently enjoying remembering the special day that whizzed by. Definitely recommend.

  • We loved working with Asa! He was very responsive and flexible about meeting with us and provided us with all the information we needed. Throughout the whole planning process he was very helpful and professional. We have a big family so doing all the family portraits on wedding day can be quite stressful, but he was amazingly calm and patient with everyone. Several of our family members and friends even commented on it to me. We could not be happier with the final product! Our photos are beautiful and full of emotion and excitement. He perfectly captured our memories from our wedding day.

  • I hired Asa to do my engagement photography in Washington, D.C. and wedding in Columbia, South Carolina. Wow, did we get some great photos! What's most impressive about Asa is his responsiveness and flexibility. He never said no to anything we asked of him-- he always found a way to make our requests work (i.e. driving to South Carolina for the wedding). Asa is very professional and cordial, and I will enjoy the photos he took for years to come.
