Why Pick Me as Your DC Event Photographer?

Professional event photographers in DC are a dime a dozen. So why pick me? 

1. Growing up with a hearing loss, out of necessity, I learned to perceive and interpret the world in ways others might overlook. In every photograph I take, I aim to convey not only what meets the eye but also the emotions, stories, and nuances that lie beneath the surface. 

2. I am pursuing a Ph.D. in clinical psychology; my background in this field has enabled me to easily build rapport with a wide variety of individuals. This translates into helping people feel comfortable in front of the camera. 


What Does My Event Photography in DC Include?

The Space

Conveying the spatial layout and magnitude of an event is a must. Why forgo an opportunity to showcase your prestigious venue? These shots are ideal for archival purposes and can be captured from various angles (e.g., views from different corners of a banquet hall, exterior shots of the venue, or aerial perspectives of convention center floors). 

Close-Up Candids

Capturing the emotional highlights of events through close-up candid photography is my specialty. Using a telephoto lens and employing a shallow depth of field, I focus on individuals, eliminating distractions and enabling viewers to immerse themselves in the moment. These images often resonate most with viewers. 

Details

Detail shots encompass a range of elements, including venue features, event signage, and culinary offerings. I understand the meticulous planning and effort invested by organizers. With a keen eye for detail, I capture images tailored to your specific needs and intended use. ensuring every aspect of your event is beautifully documented.

Group Portraits

As a roaming event photographer, whenever I spot a small group engaged in conversation, I ask, "Would you mind if I capture a shot of your group?" These portraits ensure I include VIPs in the images and enable me to photograph as many attendees as possible. Often, these are the photos guests love to share from events.


FAQ

WHEN AND HOW WILL I SEE THE IMAGES?
Within a couple days! Edited web-size and hi-res photos are delivered via Pic-Time, a platform that enables you to see your photos in a gallery, and download and share them.

HOW DO YOU TAKE PAYMENT?
Payment by credit card or ACH bank transfer is preferred. I ask for half of the total cost up front as a non-refundable retainer. The remaining balance is due the day of the shoot.
