Hello there and thank you for visiting our website. John Dukes Photography is a Christian owned, veteran owned, family owned business. We are your one-stop shop for all your photography needs.
Just a little bit about us. My name is John Dukes and Tracy Stouffer is my fiance. We both live in Mount Airy, MD, and we offer beautifully done, professional photography services across the entire DMV area, serving DC, Maryland and Virginia and southern Pennsylvania. My studio is located in Mount Airy.
Tracy and I are both so excited about capturing and documenting the most important and most precious moments of your lives in photographs. We bring together the perfect lighting, creativity and professionalism, along with a genuine and heartfelt desire to capture and deliver these beautiful images for you and your family to enjoy, exactly as you desire them.
There is something so special about a professionally done photo. It’s really quite an extraordinary transformation from the normal way we view life events and the world around us. Suddenly, you notice things a little differently than you did before. You not only see something different in the lighting, the texture, the colors, but also in the smiles of the people you love, and even in the buildings, trees, flowers. Everything looks different when you view them through the lens of a photographer’s camera and from the heart of the person photographing. They look even more beautiful than you remembered and there is an emotional element which cannot be described when you see life this way. Tracy and I work hard to capture those little details, and natural moments that might otherwise go unnoticed, in gorgeous and timeless portraits.
Photography is more than just pressing a shutter button and taking photos to us. At John Dukes Photography, we have a very personal and genuinely loving experience with our clients. We love people and people matter to us. Your memories and the story we are telling in your photos matter to us. When you schedule a session with us, you get individual one on one attention. We listen to your desires and your heart, paying careful attention to the details that tell us how to shoot. With every person we meet and every photo session we do, we work towards getting to know you and creating a unique masterpiece, specifically for you and your family to treasure and adore for a lifetime.
Whether it is a young couple being joined in matrimony or wanting to capture the memories of an engagement; A family celebrating a special birthday or important event: A senior graduating high school or preparing to go to the prom; A newborn baby coming into a loving family or an expectant mother anticipating the joy of her baby; it is such a joy to capture these moments in time for a family to treasure in photos. Life has so many precious and beautiful events, and we love to help you document them in a creative and beautiful way and help you to remember them in photographs.
I am both a natural light photographer as well as a studio photographer. We specialize in weddings and engagement shoots, family portraits, newborns, children and cake smash photos, individual headshot portraits, business photos, school photos (prom, graduation and senior pics), as well as nature and landscape wall art for your home.
I am well trained and educated in photography and I am a true professional. My credentials include being certified with Professional Photographers of America and I am also a KelbyOne member. You get only the very best when you use my services! I use only the very best, top quality state of the art Canon equipment in all shoots. I shoot with only full frame cameras and my primary camera is my Canon EOS D Canon Mark IV. I also use a Canon EOS D Mark III and and a Canon 1DX Mark II, along with a wide assortment of prime Canon lenses to create the most gorgeous images and beautiful studio backdrops and props to create stunning images for you. Also, we make it very easy and very comfortable for you during each and every session, and we do all the work for you. Even if you or your family members being photographed do not like to have their picture taken or do not think that they are “photogenic”, we work to make you feel at ease and show you that you really do look gorgeous in photos! Our sessions are stress free and they are fun!
