WASHINGTON DC LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY IN GEORGETOWN
The afternoon sun bathes the Georgetown waterfront in a warm golden glow, on a cool, crisp afternoon in late November.
Add a beautiful couple and the work of a Washington, DC lifestyle photographer turns to the task of creating compelling images. For that, location matters. Fortunately, I work in Washington, DC, one of the most photogenic and photographer-friendly cities in the US. With its broad, well lit streets, low skyline and accessible architecture, this city never lacks for great locations.
Toady, I choose Georgetown.
Located on the western edge of the city, bordered by the Potomac River and an urban hub graced with style, light and texture, Georgetown is consistently one of my favorite places to work. I can shoot a dozen sessions there and create a different portfolio for each session, simply by walking a short distance. Depending on the look I want, Georgetown offers more distinct settings for photography than other location in the city. Along the C&O Canal are the gritty remnants of its industrial past and all that comes with that. One block north, along Wisconsin Avenue, is the high energy energy of new architecture and the upscale urban life. A few short minutes away from the urban scene, the residential areas provide an elegant backdrop of classic, historic row houses on tree-lined streets.
I met Amit & Veronique at Dean and DeLuca’s on a beautiful day in late November. With clear skies, crisp fall air, temperatures in the high 50s and just enough chill in the air to add a touch of red to the cheeks, the day was near perfect. We spent the next two hours strolling along the Georgetown waterfront, looking for the right light and the right spots to shoot. At the end of the day, we had a wonderful collection of photographs for this couple and for me to add to my ever growing portfolio of lifestyle images.
