About Winery & Vineyard Photography From Appeal Photography

Appeal Photography, LLC is an award-winning photography studio in Washington, DC, founded and led by acclaimed photographer, David Guggenheim, who has been shooting professionally for more than 40 years.

Our work has been internationally recognized and we have earned exemplary reviews with top ratings on Google and Yelp. Our work is creative, original and spans a broad range of genres — including landscape and underwater photography to fashion photography — and cutting-edge photographic techniques. We shoot both on location and in a professional studio.

As we state on the home page, wine is poetry, an exquisite work of art that evokes emotion and a celebration of the senses. Similarly the wineries and vineyards that produce these wines are revered and engender a unique connection and strong loyalty among those who have discovered their wines. The importance of the wine “mystique” cannot be overstated for the modern winery and reaching out to a new audience requires an approach beyond a traditional approach.

Our philosophy, therefore, is to avoid the common “stock image” and cliché look in our work and rather use photographic artistry and fine art photography to convey the emotion and mystique that wine and wineries demand. We strive to capture the authenticity and uniqueness of our clients’ wines, winery and vineyard. Every shoot is customized to our clients’ needs, capturing not only the beauty of the winery and vineyards, but also its unique atmosphere, spirit and offerings.

Wine Barrels - Wine PhotographyOur professional winery & vineyard photography features stunning, artistic and creative landscapes, photography of wines, “lifestyle” imagery of people enjoying wines and imagery of wine, food and merchandise for e-commerce. We also create and support winery websites and wine e-commerce. We also work with you to create a strong strategic plan, assessing the distinguishing factors of your winery and translating those into targeted keywords to effectively attract the right audience and raise your presence above the competition.

We are available to travel worldwide and guarantee your satisfaction in writing in our Photography Services Agreement. Our pricing is competitive and transparent.
