Air Force Promotion Ceremony by Tamieka Smith Photography
The National Archives Museum in Washington DC is a highly coveted and sought after location for military ceremonies. For this military ceremony, the military member traveled from London, England to have her military ceremony. It was a beautiful September morning in Washington DC.
As Captain Zaniac and her family walked up to the National Archives, it made for a beautiful warm fall portrait.
Before the start of each military ceremony at The National Archives, I arrive early to photograph families arriving and celebrating the promotee. Prior to the start of the ceremony, many members ask their families to look at the documents in the Rotunda. Shortly after the the military ceremony was called to order and the military members were called to attention.
One of the cutest moments was when Major Zanic's nephew saluted her.
Following the family pinning on the new rank, Major Zanic was administered the Oath of Office in front the the United States Constitution.
Following the ceremony, Major Zanic and her promotion ceremony guest gathered in the middle of the Rotunda for a group photo.
Upon gong outside, the family went outside on the top of the stairs to get a beautiful family portrait in front of the tall black door. Have you seen the size of the door? The size of it is amazing.
Do you have an upcoming promotion ceremony at the National Archives in Washington D.C.? Do you need a professional photographer who's able to photograph your ceremony and won't be challenged with the extremely low light inside the museum? I am your girl. In addition to understanding the lighting inside the museum, I'm also a veteran and understand the lingo.
I would be honored to photograph your upcoming ceremony. If you need a photographer, give me a call at (571) 250-5073 or email email@example.com.
