Basem (& Fa) | Arlington VA Photo Studio | Washington DC Photography
Some people might know I've been in the process of relocating down to the Washington DC area. That means keeping up with this season's current clients in the NYC/Philly corridor while simultaneously learning the DMV landscape to get our studio set up here. I've always focused strictly on weddings but after some consultation with Fa we felt let's jump in with both feet doing all things photo, but let's also keep things organized from a business standpoint.
Our Wedding Cafe is still there, just expanding its base to another studio in Arlington VA while still handling luxury brides from studios in NYC and Philly. And now we've got BFF Photography to organize all the other things we do under a cohesive umbrella without mixing up the complex wedding business with say, modeling head shots.
Truth be told the region down here is exciting! It's a totally different atmosphere than NYC, which is to be expected. But there is definitely a thriving arts scene that has a unique character, kinda like Philly just with it's own sense of style. Additionally there's a pretty big film/video scene with actors around every corner in DC. I completely did not expect that. Although after binge watching my Netflix shows all day yesterday of course.... Scandal, Madam Secretary, etc.
Next steps for us is to get immersed a little deeper in the culture scene which means more elbow rubbing at fashion events and possibly a little foray into the music scene. Genuinely though I'm looking forward to the new studio getting launched and working around DC, Baltimore, and NOVA.
