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



Can you describe your photography style?

My wedding style is experiential photography, or in other words, photo-journalistic.  My job as a photographer is to find the art and beauty in your real-life moments.  I make a point to learn about my clients to really tailor to your personality to best capture the true spirit of your wedding day.

I like the idea of all candid photos of my wedding, but I want some more traditional portraiture, too.  Is this something you can do?

There are tons more details about this in the contract I share with my clients, but I absolutely want to provide you a chance during the day for you to gather up all of your family and loved ones for group portraits.  I typically like to keep these sessions as short as possible (there are more fun photographs to be found elsewhere!) but I always will work with you before the day of your wedding to schedule a time for family portraits that works best within the parameters of your day.

What about bridal portraits?

One of my favorite parts of the day are photographing the bride and groom for portraits.   This is where we get to let your love really shine in an intimate shooting setting and is often a nice breath of air for you to relax and be together amidst all the bustle of wedding day!  I’ll work with you to find the best place possible to set your bridal portraits — there are always lots of options within the venue you’ve chosen!

How long does it take to get my photographs back?

Final, high-resolution jpegs of your wedding photographs can be expected eight weeks after the day you tie the knot!   You will also receive identical web ready (lower resolution) files for easy online sharing with family
and friends.

What would my investment be when hiring 519 Photography for my wedding?

Your investment is constructed after a personal consultation – every bride and every wedding is different and has different needs and I strive to honor that.  Share with me some specifics of your wedding plans and ideas and we will work together to build your customized photography experience.  Please note there is a minimum wedding rate that applies to every wedding shoot to account for my time, travel, and talent!

I’m ready to book you for my wedding!  What do I need to do?
