My name is Andrew James Abajian and I am a hybrid fine art wedding, humanitarian, and editorial photographer and filmmaker. I absolutely love mixing both digital and timeless film to tell stories. Over the past 3 years I have been blessed by the people and opportunities that have come my way. From weddings all over California and world wide, editorial work with some amazing people and publications, and humanitarian work with some of the worlds greatest leaders. Not a day goes by that I am not grateful to be given a chance to do what I love.
I approach each story from a journalistic perspective. Because truly at its core, that's what photography is. It's an understanding that this is a once in a lifetime moment, and that it should be approached and respected as a timeless piece of cinematic art. And that is always my aim.
A photographer and filmmaker by trade and storyteller by instinct, Andrew Abajian has an unmistakable approach that delivers images that reside in a class all alone.
As a Christ follower I’ve come to understand that everyone’s story is valuable. How you got to this place, and the storms you’ve faced have truly transformed you to who you are to today. That in every light, everyone is worth being heard and having their story told. And to be able to be an ambassador of that in my work is what brings great joy to my life.
When I’m not out taking pictures or filming you can definitely find me going on adventures with my lovely wife or most likely I’ll be lounging to a record, a cup of coffee in hand, and reading a good book. Currently I’m reading "LIVE, LOVE, LEAD" by Brian Houston.
If you'd like to grab a cup of coffee and discuss future creative projects or even just engage in photography talk I would absolutely love that. I would truly enjoy hearing from you!
