We shape our buildings, and afterwards our buildings shape us
— Winston Churchill

David Meaux is a Northern Virginia-based photographer of architecture and design. Along his side is his wife, studio manager, and skilled retoucher, Melanie. Together, using current digital technology and merging their personal styles, David and Melanie are able to craft striking, distinctive images that evoke a sense of place and being. They enjoy the opportunity to work closely with architects and designers to understand each project and create beautiful images that embody the designers' intent and vision through their use of light and modern composition.

This husband and wife team is inspired by how architecture is the embodiment of society's values and culture and is a reflection of the way we live. Their photographic style is minimalistic centered on geometry, color, light and texture and placing particular emphasis on the spirit of a place. Their work is characterized by their ability to balance technical expertise with personal attention to quality and details. They are available for work in the Washington, D.C. area and worldwide.  

When they aren't photographing architecture and interiors, you'll find them either building architectural LEGO models, expressing their personal visions through fine art black and white photography, marveling at the architecture around the world or downhill skiing with their family. 


David is a Professional Affiliate Member of the Washington, D.C. Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA|DC), an Allied Member of the Northern Virginia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Northern Virginia), an Associate Member of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), and a member of the Association of Independent Architectural Photographers (AIAP).
