Filming & Photography

Our historic indoor spaces and beautiful outdoor gardens offer the perfect backdrop for your film shoot or photography session. Whatever the occasion — and whether for your personal or professional endeavors — our historic filming and photography spaces create the ideal location in Washington DC to complete your project. We offer a choice of backgrounds both indoors and outside to create the perfect scene.

Whether you are filming an interview for a documentary in one of our historic rooms, shooting your engagement photography in our gardens — or creating another type of project entirely — our spaces offer the ideal environment to foster your creativity and create a professional product. Due to the lack of religious symbolism in our design, our spaces make everyone feel welcome and comfortable. And our filming and photography spaces are located in Dupont Circle — in the heart of Washington DC — convenient to downtown and other neighborhoods.

The following projects work well in our spaces, both indoors and outside:


  • Engagement sessions
  • Graduation and family photography
  • Professional headshots
  • Product Launches and Marketing
  • Style Shoots

Filming and Videography

  • Documentary Interviews
  • Marketing and Advertising
  • Productions
  • Engagement Videos

Popular indoor spaces for filming and photography include our Quaker House Living Room, the Bridge Room and our Library. Outdoors, consider our enclosed gardens which offer a beautiful setting.

WIFI Internet access is available in all indoor and outdoor spaces.

“We would like to thank the Friends Meeting of Washington for extending an invitation to use your facilities for our annual staff retreat. All the accommodations and hospitality worked perfectly with our strategic work plans and the atmosphere was very relaxing and soothing to conduct our retreat. As we continue in the future to hold meetings off site, we will immediately look to the Friends Meeting House for those events. Again, thank you for the hospitality and space.” ~ Anonymous
