On short notice, in a pandemic filled year, Avan was able to shoot our wedding and create an entire portfolio of beautiful photos that we will cherish forever. Avan was accommodating, professional, and his book of work speaks for itself! He was very fun to work with and it felt like he was a part of the wedding party throughout the day and night which made it very easy to capture candid photos. We highly recommend Avan for any of your photography needs.

We had a family session with Avan over the summer, and my kids absolutely loved him! He's easy going, fun and the fine art prints he created were absolutely stunning! I love how he captured our family in a natural & honest way. We didn't feel awkward or uncomfortable and he has a great way with kids. He just went with the flow and he captured us in our everyday life.
Avan also brought his vintage film camera which was a real conversation piece! My 8 year old son was very interested in how the camera worked (and so were the rest of us!) Avan captured such beautiful and timeless images of all of us with it, too -- and the fun experience we'll remember forever.
I would highly recommend Avan and his beautiful work!

Avan was the photographer for my wedding and he did an absolutely outstanding job! Great communication, knowledgeable and professional and really made me feel at ease before my wedding as the photos were so important to me. he was very accommodating due to the circumstances surrounding covid-19 and was very respectful of our family and few guests' safety. His style of photography and editing is stunning and he captured so many beautiful moments throughout the day for which there are no words! Looking at our photos is truly a journey through our wedding day and we could not be more grateful for the amazing and priceless shots! He captured everything from the fun and silly, to the sweet and romantic, behind the scenes, portraits, lovely candids of our guests, quiet moments and raw emotion. He went above and beyond & I would not hesitate to hire him again for the next special event in my life. Don't think twice, book!! THANK YOU AVAN!

My husband and I had a fantastic experience working with Avan on our wedding day! Avan captured some very special spontaneous and candid moments that we continue to look back on and smile at. As two people who are a little shy in front of the camera, Avan made our photography experience very comfortable and organic. Very pleased with our gallery of photos, most especially with the quality of images and attention to all details. Highly recommend Avan Patel Photography to document your next event.

Avan was a fantastic photographer for our wedding day. Thoroughly professional throughout and also mingled really well with our guests - they loved him being around as much as we did! The results were great too. Avan kept in good contact with us after the day and our photos were completed much sooner than we anticipated!

Choosing Avan to shoot our wedding in April 2019 was the best decision we made. Right when you meet him you can tell that he is passionate about his work and cares deeply about his clients. We had about 3 weeks to plan an impromptu wedding (due to an illness in the family) and Avan made everything as easy as possible for us -- he was always responsive, timely and listened to what we wanted. He was also very calming and reassuring, which was extremely important on such a hectic day. We had terrible weather for most of the day, but Avan made it work and he even stayed an extra hour at the end of the day to make sure we were happy.
We were also impressed with how personable and friendly he was. Avan made us feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera and we had an amazing time with him throughout the day.
I couldn't have been happier with our photos-- they are raw, authentic, and just absolutely stunning. Avan is a talented photographer that I would highly recommend
