Washington DC Wedding Photographers


We are Steve & Jane Pilkerton and we are wedding photographers serving Washington DC, Northern Virginia, and Maryland. We are a husband and wife team specializing in classic and elegant yet modern portraits.

We believe that great wedding photography is an art, a craft, and a social skill. That's why we focus on creating extraordinary imagery, while making you feel comfortable and relaxed. We don't require that the setting be perfect in order to take stunning photographs, and we don’t ask you to do silly poses or pretend. We do produce gorgeous lighting in an instant whenever it’s needed, and we know how to read emotion and anticipate the moments that matter most to you.

We were born and raised in the DC Metro area so we are familiar with all the best locations for your wedding and engagement portraits. Even when we aren't in the city for work, we are there visiting our favorite restaurants and museums. We also enjoy driving out farther west to the mountains and enjoying the different wineries and historic houses of Northern Virginia.

We have extensive training in all aspects of the wedding day, especially in light and posing. Training with many of the top wedding photographers in the world has allowed us to walk into any wedding confident that we can create beautiful images no matter the time of year, the weather, or the location. With many years of experience in the field, we know how to read a scene and be in the right place with the right equipment when the most important moments are happening. 

We are willing to do what we need to when we are photographing your wedding. We are willing to lay in a muddy field or climb a tree if it means getting just the right angle to create something unique for you. 

After years photographing weddings in the Northern Virginia, Maryland and D.C. Metro area, we can truly say we can give you the best wedding photos we know you will love.
