DC Wedding & Portrait Photographer

I'm LaTonya Smothers a DC Wedding and Portrait photographer. I am the creative mind behind LaTonya Photography LLC, where I'm intimately connected to capturing images. 

When I was in first grade, my family lost our home to a fire. All we had left were our memories. This loss opened a void in my life. I felt as if the first six years of my life didn't exist because I had nothing tangible to hold in my hands. As a result of this devastating loss, I vowed to document every moment possible of my children’s’ lives with both digital and printed copies of the images. For one vacation, I bought a pro-level camera thinking it would be a simple point-and-shoot solution for photographing my family. But I quickly discovered there was more to the art of photography. I became fascinated with the different types of photography and decided to enroll in a photography course. The rest, as they say, is image history.

When I'm not capturing your authentic emotions and creating picture-perfect heirlooms, you can find me at brunch with my friends, spending time with my family, or curled up with a romance novel.

It's all about the experience!

LaTonya was my photographer for my Sensational 65 Birthday celebration. She was great. She was responsive, never missing, professional and a warm smile. She also was my photographer for my pre-birthday pictures. My pictures was a success. You won't be disappointed with LaTonya. And, I will use her services again.
