Washington DC Wedding Photographer

Welcome to Douglas Pettway Photography

a washington dc wedding photographer

Thank you for visiting, please take a moment to check out some of my favorite wedding and engagement images in the Portfolio or hop over to the Blog page for even more photography. My weddings have been featured in numerous blogs throughout the country and published in magazines.

Accolades aside, what is truly important to me is ensuring that my clients are relaxed, happy, and ready to enjoy their wedding day to the fullest. Through unobtrusive, photojournalism and subtle posing, I place an emphasis on photographing the relationships and interactions of people happily in love.

If my work speaks to you then please get in touch with me; I would love to hear from you.
