Fine Art Luxury Wedding Photographer based in Washington, DC | Anna Schmidt Photography
Frequent Questions


What areas do you service?

Everywhere! All areas, all around the globe. Although most of my weddings have been located throughout the Washington, DC area, I *LOVE* traveling and photographing destination weddings and will go absolutely anywhere. I have a special place in my heart for Europe (especially France, Italy, Germany, and the UK), Hawaii, NYC, California, and Alaska... so if you are having your wedding in any of those places you get major bonus points! Bring on the adventure!

How much are your wedding photography packages?

Collections start at $4,900. You can reach out to me at for the most updated pricing information.

What do I need to do to reserve my wedding day with Anna Schmidt Photography? Do you require a deposit?

Wedding photography is reserved when a wedding contract is signed and the 50% non-refundable deposit/retainer fee is paid. Once both of these are received the date is reserved for you, and you only. Your date will not be available for any other wedding bookings.

What forms of payment do you accept?

You may pay by check or credit card.

Can we meet before I book you to decide if you are the right photographer for me?

Absolutely! In fact, I highly recommend it. If we aren't able to meet in person over coffee or a glass of red wine (or a spicy margarita!) we can always schedule a phone call or Skype instead. It is important that I get to know you and understand your expectations, desires, and what is most important to you on your wedding day! I want to hear about it all. :)

When will I receive my wedding photos?

I try my very best to deliver a preview with the highlights of your big day within a few days after the wedding. It usually takes 4-6 weeks to complete the editing of wedding photos, but it may take a little longer during peak wedding season.

Can I bring my dog(s) to our engagement session?

Yes, please! Just as long as I can take them home with me. :-D Just kidding! If you’ve looked through my site and blog posts, you’ll see that I absolutely love animals! So if you have a fur baby we must incorporate them into your session. Your engagement photos would not be the same without them, right? ;)

Do you photograph on holidays?

Unfortunately I do not book my clients on holidays, as those dates are already reserved for my closest friends and family.

Do you photograph bar mitzvahs, newborns, children, or families?

Weddings are my specialty and primary area of focus. On occasion I will photograph a corporate event- please reach out via to inquire about availability and pricing.
