Hi! I'm William.

I'm a professional wedding, event and portrait photographer based in the DC metropolitan area.

I offer high end photography and editing at affordable rates that work within most budgets. I take professionalism and quality very seriously and I aim to go above and beyond for every single client. My equipment, editing software (I do my own editing) and techniques are constantly updated to ensure my clients get nothing less than a first class experience.

If you have unique ideas, I would love to hear about them so that I can help bring your vision to reality.

About Me:

I moved around a lot growing up (8 States!), and I was one of those kids who always carried a camera. Moving around, gave me the unique opportunity to meet people of all sorts of backgrounds, and I've grown to appreciate that as an adult. I love meeting new people and learning about unique cultures and family traditions.

Photography is truly a passion for me, so if I'm not working, you can probably find me out exploring DC with my camera or in my office re-editing old photos. I also love cars and traveling!

Give me an opportunity to shoot and I'm your best friend! So Contact me and let's make a plan.


“I have worked with Wilson Modern Photography for several corporate events. We are consistently pleased with his work and ability to capture a corporate event. He is very kind and easy to work with. I would recommend him to anyone looking for quality photography”


“William agreed to take our engagement photos at the Philly art museum. He took two awkward camera shy individuals and took some beautiful photos. He brought his own equipment and walked all around the area pointing out good photo ops. He was responsive before the photo shoot started, professional and easy going over the whole shoot, and could have charged much more for the quality we got. He is a great partner!”

—Andrew & Shivon

“The pictures William captured of our engagement are amazing! Could not be happier that he was there for such a special moment in our lives! Beautiful work! Thank you again, William!!”

—Mike & Jackie

“I proposed to my now Fiancé on May 8th this year and William managed to capture so many wonderful moments from that day that we'll be able to reflect on for the rest of our lives. It was a joy to work with William from start to finish. He took the initiative to scope out the proposal site, met with me in advance and he even helped stage the proposal gifts on the big day. Most importantly - he managed to stay out of site for the moment I got down on one knee!”

“Had such a wonderful experience with William as our wedding photographer. Even on short notice he made sure to meet with my husband and I before our big day to discuss our vision and details.
On the day of, nothing really went as planned, we were running late, and it was VERY hot! But William went with the flow, adjusted for us and got some AMAZING shots. He made everything so easy and simple from actually getting the shots to receiving the final photos”

—Gillian & Lindsey

“William is an amazing photographer. He arrived on time and did his job beyond what we expected. We didn’t feel like we had a stranger taking photographs at our wedding, he was very friendly and did everything with smiles and enthusiasm. You won’t make a mistake hiring him.”


“William Wilson is an expert in his craft. He delivered high resolution photos that were visually stunning and custom tailored to our request. I highly recommend his services!”
