The Lincoln Memorial is one of the most famous place to take pictures in DC. It has so many characters to it such as different steps and 36 really big columns that are perfect for pictures. The view and the surroundings are really good for photo ops. The key to finding good parking, is getting there early in the morning.
George Mason National Memorial is a very cool place to take photos in DC. There is more to just the statues, there are many great spots to take photos in this location. Again, parking might be an issue so if I were you, I’d try to get there bright and early.
3428 O Street, NW Washington DC: I’ve taken photos here so many times, it’s so beautiful. It used to be owned by a florist company that relocated but it has been taken over by another company which makes it really hard to still take pictures in front of this building. It is absolutely stunning and I love all the colors- it’s stunning.
City Center DC is becoming the “it’ place to take photos in DC. They have many luxurious stores in the area such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Dior, Burberry, Hermés etc. I’ve taken pictures here on three different occasions and I love it. Every photo you take is guaranteed to come out well. I love that they change the décor several times a year.
National Gallery of Art: I don’t often shoot in museums because I typically have tons of clothes to shoot and like to take advantage of that and time during my shoots. It’s not feasible for me to do that in a museum but years ago I got inside the National Gallery of Art and it is a very incredible place to take photos. It has so many different characters and this Leo Villareal’s LED tunnel was my favorite place to photograph. Getting nice photos was a struggle because you have people in your shots and the lights goes on and off but it was worth all the stress lol.
