Army Promotion Ceremony at The National Archives Museum
Promotion ceremonies at The National Archives Museum are fun and make for a memorable military ceremony. Many military members throughout Washington DC and across the nation desire to have their military event at the museum. Because of it's popularity, members have to request months in advance to secure the venue for their promotion or retirement ceremony. Therefore, I always get excited when veterans or their spouse call or message me to schedule photography for their ceremony.

It was a beautiful day in Washington D.C. for an Air Force promotion ceremony at The National Archives; even the little ducklings thought so. They came out for a walk with their Mom.

All of this happened before Captain Day arrived for his promotion ceremony.

Almost weekly, I drive to the National Archives Museum in Washington D.C. to photograph a military ceremony. It’s always an honor when military families trust me to photograph their treasured memories of having their ceremony in front of the United States Constitution.
However, once the ceremony is over, now it’s time for the member and their family to decide how they would like to display their memories. There are several options to choose from; album, framed portrait, canvas, and more. Today, I’ll be highlighting the beauty of a framed portrait. Frames from Tamieka Smith Photography really are stunning and museum quality.
