dc street murals

What could be better and more urban that going on a tour of some of DC’s best murals? From Union Market to Blagden Alley, there is a lot of art that can serve as colorful and vibrant backdrops for your portraits. 

additional locations

There are many more beautiful spaces in and around DC, but many also require photography permits purchased at least two weeks in advance. I am always happy to meet at one of these locations if you are interested in one. Permit fees are the responsibility of the client. Meadowlark Gardens, Kennilworth Aquatic Gardens, River Farm, Brookside Botanical Gardens, as well as many City and State Parks are all beautiful locations but will require permits and advance planning.
