These beautiful Capitol Hill headshots with personality were captured by Hannah Bjorndal Photography in April, 2017. Hannah is a portrait photographer available for creative headshots in the Washington, DC area and beyond.
It’s hard to imagine a more perfect day on Capitol Hill than the one we had for these beautiful headshots! While the traffic was crazy (and I mean WAY crazier than normal), we made it to the Capitol on this lovely weekday evening for some fun and photos.
Jenny is a babe, am I right? We are both wedding photographers (check out Jenny B. Photography!) and met through the local wedding vendor community in D.C. I helped Jenny with a styled shoot earlier this year and I’ve loved the time we’ve spent together since!
There are SO many beautiful places around Capitol Hill for portraits. The gorgeous white architecture of the Capitol is a stunning backdrop for headshots, portraits and engagement sessions. There are gardens and areas filled with green, and also a great view of The Mall. Jenny picked the location, and it was a great choice!
This is one thing I really love about living in our nation’s capital. The beautiful architecture, in particular, stands out to me. This was something that I would have never said when I first moved here, but the beautiful government buildings all around the city are unique for a U.S. city. Because of the unusual “height limit” put on new construction in D.C., there aren’t any huge high rise or skyscraper buildings. This means that city streets are lighter and brighter than all the other major U.S. cities. I actually think the city can sometimes feel almost European. I love my city!
Enough about DC, let’s get to the photos:
