|Carla Freed – View Gallery!Neal and Carla Freed opened their Bethesda studio in 1996, and Freed Photography has since grown to become one of Washington’s premier, award-winning studios.
Carla received her BA in art & art history from Tulane University. She spent a year in Europe studying art history. Soon after, her creativity and artistic attention to detail segued into her being behind the camera and establishing her own individual style.
As a team and individually, Neal and Carla have photographed over 1,000 weddings, corporate events, portraits, families, children, bar/bat mitzvahs and other occasions. When together, their photographic styles complement each other in that Neal has the subject focus on him while Carla captures more relaxed and candid B&W shots.
When not behind the camera, Carla oversees every creative detail surrounding post-production, while Neal’s vision and business management experience has positioned Freed Photography as the #1 choice in the DC metro area. Their passion for providing the best customer service led them to establish “The Alliance of Washington’s Finest Photographers.”
Neal and Carla have been married for 25 years and have two children. They are active in the DC business community, charitable foundations and are members of Wedding & Portrait Photographers International, International Special Events Society, and the National Association of Catering Executives.
