  • I'm so happy we went with Ray for our wedding video. His team was very professional and timely. This is a video my wife and I will cherish for the rest of our lives. Hands down one of the best videographer I have seen and 100% would recommend him to anyone looking. I keep getting goose bumps every time I watch my video. Thanks again Ray for the great work!

  • This was the best decision I made, besides proposing to my now wife of course. Extremely professional and flexible. I heard great things about Ray from others and he exceeded my expectations. I ended up hiring his services for two of my events and I cannot be happier with the end result. I highly recommend Ray to everyone and will definitely use him for all major events going forward!

  • Ray is, quite simply, the best in the business. If you look at his website, Facebook, or Instagram pages, you will fall in love with his work. He is as adept at taking traditional wedding photos (the stock family shots or dance floor photos we are all familiar with) as he is at taking artistic editorial-style photos. Indeed, some of his photos are so stunningly gorgeous that you will think you're looking at a painting. His photographs tell a story; they capture a moment. And some of them will even take your breath away. What more could you want on your wedding day? We are so in love with some of our wedding photos that we plan to use them as artwork in our new home, and we are totally not those kind of people. We did our first look on one of two gorgeous spiral staircases at our wedding venue, the Hotel Monaco in Washington, DC, which is both a luxury hotel and national historic landmark. The photographs that Ray took of us from atop the staircase looking down are at once beautiful... Read more

  • Ray, I dont know where to start. Literally the most passionate person I have personally met. He went above and beyond for my fiance and I. Due to a family emergency we couldnt do our pre- wedding shoot until a week before the wedding, Ray made sure we had a video and that it was PERFECT. Ray and his team stayed up late nights editing our pre-shoot video so it was completed before the wedding day. Ray makes it his responsibility to make sure you will love the photos he takes, trust me you will not just love your photos you will LOVE your photos. Ray is very friendly and will definately make sure you are comfortable to make it a smooth process. I am so glad we received his services for out fairytale wedding and we plan on cherishing this relationship and plan on receiving his services for all of our future events! Can't wait for my wedding photos. We love you Ray. Shana &Ricky Link to Engagement Video https://youtu.be/Lhmzw6igi0w

  • I’ve known Ray for 6+ years and i couldn’t wait for the day to get married so I could have him as my wedding photographer. He is truly amazing. His shots are perfect. He is hands down the best photographer in the DMV area. I wouldn’t even look further then Ray. He is high quality and does top notch work. We got married August 26, 2018 and he made us so comfortable and was so professional. He’s the only person I would recommend personally. Now let’s talk results.....our pictures are so gorgeous and perfect. Our wedding video was literally like a movie. The quality is so amazing you can’t even believe your eyes. I just love love love Ray and would 100% recommend him. Thank you for a great experience and we are so happy!

  • Our wedding was on August 4th 2018, and we got our photos only a month after. Such quick service and we were blown away with the quality pictures Ray shot. He got every perfect moment. And during our photo shoot, he was a lot of fun to work with. He knows all his angles and poses! Would recommend him to anyone and everyone for any occasion.

  • Ray is literally the best Photographer in DC area. He is a humble, well organized and very professional. Listen to his advice because he makes wonderful photo phots and he won’t disappoint you for sure. I hired him in my wedding and he absolutely gave me more than asked for with quality pictures and video. I feel like a movie star whenever I watch my wedding pictures and videos. Believe me he will be your best choice.

  • BEST PHOTOGRAPHER EVER!!!! He did my wedding, my sisters, my brothers wedding and all our events. He’s our go to guy! He always goes above and beyond for us. He knows that the bride is stressed as is and he just takes that stress away. One thing less for you to worry about. If you don’t go to Ray, you’re going to regret it. Truly and honestly a loss if he’s not the photographer for your event. I’ve never seen anyone have better wedding photos than mine and my family members. He’s so creative and has such fun ideas! You can’t go wrong with Ray! Take my word for it; you won’t be disappointed!

  • My Husband and I couldn't be happier with Ray, his talent, professionalism, and personality made us feel very comfortable to choose him not only as our wedding photographer but also the videographer. Ray was able to capture the best moments of our special day and also made sure that no guest was left behind in the pictures. Our wedding pictures couldn't have been more perfect. As soon as we received our pictures, we couldn't wait to share them with family and friends. We got such great feedback from family and friends on the photos and were told what a talented photographer we worked with. Ray Alghadban is going to be always our 1st choice for photography and videography in the future, and his name will always be my recommendation to family and friends. Thank you Ray!!

  • My family and I strongly recommend Ray for engagement/wedding photography! Ray did an amazing job for our wedding in April 2018. He and his team worked tirelessly and efficiently throughout the day. As a result we had a lot of absolutely stunning photos to include some beautiful sunset ones. Ray was extremely professional and also very accommodating to our requests. He went out of his way many times for us which we deeply appreciated. As this was a traditional Hindu wedding, Ray proved he was very adaptable to working in an environment with a different ceremony and customs. From the beginning, we could tell that Ray is very passionate of his work and also very creative. We also loved his photos from our engagement photo shoot so much that we enlarged some of them and used them in the entrance hall for our ceremony. Ray is an excellent photographer and we would not hesitate to use him again for our photography needs!

  • Ray is the absolute best photographer out there! He not only takes amazing pictures but he is an honest vendor that’s passionate about his work. In today’s wedding industry it’s hard to find someone who you can trust and isn’t just trying to make money off of you. Ray not only took amazing photos during mine and my husband’s wedding photoshoot, he also took so many photos of the event and provided extraordinary event coverage. Ray is also so easy to work with. I’m camera shy but Ray was patient and helped make me feel more comfortable and we ended up with so many great poses in our shots. He is so artistic and is able to transform ANY place into an amazing backdrop for your photographs. He worked soo well with all my other vendors and provided advice when needed. Ray is also super friendly and he doesn’t just seem like a photographer at an event but is like a friend. All my friends and family loved him and his team. I believe that photos are one of the very few wa... Read more

  • When I hired Ray I was really excited because the work he displays on his website looks amazing. I went all out and chose the Luxuria package ($8500). I was very disappointed when I received my photos, highlight video and wedding video. I had to request many edits and the work was still subpar. Ray also did not give us guidance on how to pose for our wedding photos and many of our photos similar. There were lighting poles are visible throughout many pictures, highlight video, and full videos. We also noticed that there are no pictures of the wedding food, as well as no pictures OR video of the wedding dessert table that we spent a lot of time and money planning. Ray also did not bring the drone he promised for outdoor and indoor footage. The photos of my husband’s accessories for the wedding were ridiculous. The tie was crooked in the picture and Ray did not fix that. He lacks attention to detail. On my wedding day, the second photographer showed up around 3:30 pm-4:00 pm instead of ... Read more

  • I don't know where to begin! Ray was not just a photographer to us, he became a part of our family and a brother to me. He sat down with me for almost 3 hours on our first meeting and we talked about our lives and those hours flew by until the cafe we were at had to close for the night. He took each and every shot as an insider to our lives rather than just a photographer. He is incredibly patient and he has your back through all the wedding festivities. Everytime I got stressed he reminded me to relax and take it easy. He is truly one of the best people to work with and his shots are incredible!
