This was my third promotion ceremony at the National Archives and still find myself in awe of the majesty of the National Archives building and the ceremony being held. Being promoted is a special time in a person's career and to be surrounded by close friends and family makes these short events so wonderful to be a part of.
When I do these events I try to get downtown a bit early to take a walk around the National Archives building and snap some photos of the morning sun as it rises over these beautiful buildings. Each time I have done a shoot, I have captured something different. I am grateful to be able to shoot these wonderful ceremonies. Here are some of my favorite images from David Knight's promotion ceremony to Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Air Force.
