Welcome to Douglas Pettway Photography
a washington dc wedding photographer
My work as a Washington DC Wedding Photographer has allowed me to be a part of so many beautiful moments. In Fall of 2013, my Shepherdstown, West Virginia orchard wedding was chosen for the cover for WV Weddings‘ semi-annual publication entitled, Seasons of Love. You can take a look at the photographs of Jillian, Jeremy and their amazing wedding here. My photos of Tania and K.C. and their incredible WWII period inspired wedding were featured as an editors pick in their 2012 edition, Fly Away With Me. I also freelance for WV Living magazine. In 2013, I was privileged to be a sponsor and photographer of the Shepherdstown WV breast cancer awareness fundraiser, Identity Crisis.
In addition to my magazine features, you can find my fabulous brides and grooms on wedding blogs such as A Capital Romance, United With Love, Charm City Wed, Rustic Wedding Chic, and Le Magnifique.
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. With an unobtrusive, documentary style 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.
About The Way That I Work
My photography is based primarily on establishing a connection with my couples. No story can be complete without conversation and understanding.
“It means so much to us that you made us feel comfortable. Thank you for creating a lifetime of memories for us.”
“With good communication and natural empathy, Doug really entered into the spirit of our celebration. On the day of the wedding he even surprised us with special access to a local landmark, which meant the world to me. Doug really cares, which is his first gift; the other is taking great photographs! “
