Wedding, Dance, Real Estate & Portrait Artistry


Welcome to B Payden Photography!


We are a full service studio located in Washington DC and Hampton Roads Virginia. We specialize in Wedding, Dance and Fine Art Portrait Artistry.

 Our style of Wedding Photography is authentic, capturing natural beauty and emotion in order to tell the story of your wedding day. Our work has been described as relaxed, romantic and classic, all while still looking natural. We strive to be unobtrusive, following and recording real moments as they happen because, from bridal preparation to your grand departure, your wedding day is about you and those you care about.

When we photograph your wedding, we capture those grand moments, like that first kiss, the moments you never saw coming, and the subtle moments you didn't even notice that will tell the story of your unforgettable special day for decades to come.

We combine classic style portraiture with a photo journalistic approach so that your images will look amazing but natural. We keep our portraiture relaxed and fun, encouraging freedom of expression, because natural beauty often comes best with little or sometimes no direction. Family is key to any wedding and we believe that wedding gatherings are the perfect time for recording your new genealogy. As such, traditional posed family group pictures are included.

Your wedding photographs will have a timeless look and elegance. We pride ourselves on not just being photographers, but rather artists creating unique and expressive imagery.
