What you'll do

After the sun goes down Washington becomes a vibrant and colorful cityscape. At the end of a long day of sightseeing what better way to unwind than to settle into the lights and feels of a DC night? We'll play with our environment to capture interesting portraits on a city walk. This is for those who are adventurous at heart--there's no set agenda. We'll get together in front of my favorite neighborhood coffee shop and head off into the night and create art in city spaces. This will be a street-style photo shoot, where I will capture you in the midst of DC's urban landscape at night.

This experience accommodates up to 5 people, you do not have to fill up all the spots but please be aware you may be partaking with other locals or travelers. It's a great way to get some moody and unique night portraits while potentially making new friends.

Your portraits are an integral part of this experience. All your photos from our time together will be delivered to you at no charge via email within 2 days after the experience ends.

Where you'll be

La Colombe Coffee is a short walk from the Mt. Vernon Square metro on the Green and Yellow line or you can take an Uber/Lyft. We'll visit some of my favorite DC neighborhoods, to capture unique night portraits. We'll play with street lights, business signs, and work with our surroundings to capture creative scenes. No matter whether you live here or are a first-time visitor, you'll see a new side of the city on this experience!

Stef was so great during this experience. I liked that she sat and tried to understand what you wanted to get out of the photos and tried to balance that with you natural personality. I would highly recommend.

Stef was amazing! She accommodated our shift in schedule and still made sure that we got some amazing shots! We met a unique coffee shot and immediately jumped into shooting, which I appreciate due to the time and cold weather. I really like her efficiency and how she guided our posing in a very natural way so that we got some very genuinely loving photos as opposed to stiff and over engineered. She made us feel comfortable and captured to true essence of our relationship. 10/10!!

Stef was great! I wanted to do the shoot for my 30th birthday. I showed up with lots of ideas and props and Stef just ran with them and picked out great locations to use each of them. The photos turned out just how I had envisioned!

Stef was very good photographer with a knack for night shots and scenery. She was very accommodating and willing to try and experiment with some ideas I had, while also making sure she got the good shots that she imagined herself. She really captured a fun and memorable moment of me and my girlfriend for her birthday :-).

Steph was absolutely amazing. She was easy to contact and always made sure to keep me in the loop. Once we met up at our location we enjoyed a short dinner together. Which was unexpected but very nice to get to know each other and then I am going on a venture around the city. She’s very good at styling photos and helping you model even if you are a very inexperienced. I would 100% recommend the night experience because you’ll have pictures that are like no other. So much fun!!
