Akil Bennett Bio Pic By Melissa West


While I can’t wait to begin photographing your story, first I’ll tell you a little bit about mine…

My story as a photographer actually starts right here in Houston Texas. I majored in Film Production at the University of Houston and quickly discovered that I could practice and explore the world of visual storytelling through my photography. It wasn’t long after graduating that I started to shoot wedding photography in the Houston area, and I quickly became addicted to the way that I could use the principles of storytelling in my photography. I love looking for all of the tiny little details that make every moment so special and remarkable, creating photographs that are rich with emotion.



I have definitely found my passion in wedding photography and other types of photography, and I’ve already been blessed with so many beautiful wedding stories to tell. I love being able to truly connect with the people I photograph. Working closely with my clients allows me to highlight the little things that make each individual unique and really show their personality. My photography allows me to do what I love best, and I try to show that passion in each and every beautiful photograph for my clients to share with their loved ones.

While I spend a lot of time on photographing the many stories that Houston has to offer, I do occasionally let my camera have a chance to recharge. I’m usually spending time with my growing family whenever I’m not working, enjoying the beauty of watching our own story as it unfolds.

Great photographer!!! I would highly recommend Akil. His work is amazing, and he is very easy to work with. Very personable, laid back, with great people skills- not overbearing like some photographers can be. He shot our engagement pictures and our wedding, and I couldn't be happier with the images!!!

Akil was absolutely amazing! We couldn't have imagined using anyone else for our photos. We used Akil for out engagements, bridals, and wedding. He really captures you and your better half in the moment and focuses on capturing you just being natural and enjoying each other and the moment. He is very easy to work with and makes the experience so enjoyable. We are so thankful we had Akil to capture our special day with our friends and family and will always have these wonderful memories.

Working with Akil was such a pleasure for our engagement photos, rehearsal dinner, and entire wedding process. He exudes a calmness that is directly transferred to his subjects, causing a fun and enjoyable photographing experience. We all loved having Akil around on such a crazy day, because he brought such positivity to a somewhat stressful and crazy environment. His photos are absolutely beautiful, definitely use Akil if you have the chance!
