HIRE LAURA METZLER & HER TEAM OF EXPERT CREATIVE PROFESSIONALS TO BRING YOUR BRAND’S VISION TO LIFE WITH VIVID “STOP-YOU-IN-YOUR-TRACKS” PHOTOGRAPHY.

THIS IS LAURA METZLER.

Laura launched her photography business in 2011 and quickly earned a role as the trusted “go to” photographer for up and coming DC designers and independent brands. She has had the privilege of shooting with some of the most noted brands, designers and creatives in the area, including Urbanstems, Framebridge and Shannon Claire Interiors.

Laura now leads the creative team at Laura Metzler Photography providing clients in the DC/VA area with full-service photography solutions, with concentrations in branding, interiors, product, and food photography. Laura is also the co-founder of Fostr Collaborative, a collaborative workspace and studio in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC.

As Laura Metzler Photography expands, Laura’s entrepreneurial spirit and passion for working with business owners to further exciting brands continues to motivate and inform all her endeavors and client interactions. When Laura is not shooting with clients she enjoys renovating and redecorating her first ever home in northern Virginia with her husband. (You can follow along their journey on Instagram #houseofmetz.) Laura also loves to travel and photograph gorgeous locations, many of which are featured in her print shop.
