Wedding Photojournalism by Rodney Bailey is an award-winning, boutique wedding and event photography studio specializing in storytelling. We’re inspired by real moments and document your celebration as it organically occurs. We are passionate about taking great care to beautifully capture all of the details, emotions and events all while letting you stay in the moment and truly enjoy one of the best days of your life. We have documented in this unobtrusive approach for over 28 years and have stayed true to our philosophy: Let Our Passion Tell Your Story!
Rodney Bailey is a photojournalist in the purest sense. He does not manipulate his surroundings, orchestrate his subjects or distract the moments he is capturing. He has documented over 900 weddings in this unobtrusive approach and is one of the most sought after wedding photographers in Washington DC and beyond. He often works internationally reaching destinations such as Paris, Rome, Korea, Toyko, Bermuda, Cabo San Lucas, Costa Rica and the U.S. and British Virgin Islands.
Rodney is also commissioned for social, corporate, political, fashion and commercial photography projects, though weddings still remain his passion. During downtime, Rodney can still be found behind the camera; however, his subjects are sharks and sea life as he is an avid scuba diver and underwater photographer.
