519 Photo by Lauryn Gutierrez » Love and Life Photographer Serving Washington, DC & Worldwide


 Lauryn Ann Gutierrez -- LAG Headshot at River -- 519photo.com

Hello!  I’m Lauryn.  I am the founder  here at 519 Photography.  I am a LOVE and LIFE photographer.

I EMPOWER people to EXIST in photographs.

AUTHENTICITY is crucial to my photography practice.

My Locale

  • I serve the Washington, DC metro area – but I do world travel for special projects!  In the last year, I’ve been shooting in Europe, Brazil, Seattle, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and up and down East Coast USA.  Just ask!

Working with Me

  • I am a experiential photographer, which means that I will be capturing your authentic moments, but making sure you look the best you can with occasional gentle direction.
  • I shoot everywhere and anywhere possible.   I love the photojournalist style and find it the best way to fully document your story.
  • We will definitely be friends if you like dark chocolate, red wine, and extremely creamy coffee.  I try to share at LEAST one of these with my clients during our in-person consultations – be prepared!
  • Part of my mission is to CELEBRATE the people I work with.   I make a point to do an amazing blog post about our shooting experience together (unless, of course, you ask me not to!)

If you really need the low-down on me, this blog post is for you!   If you want to learn more about my photography style, visit my INFO/FAQ page.
