Thirty people, some from nearby and others from as far as Florida and California, spent the day at the White House and captured it all in pictures. During the visit, our photowalkers toured the South Lawn and Kitchen Garden, met White House photographer Sonya Herbert and were surprised by a very popular member of the Obama Family, First Dog Bo.

Later, the group stopped by Eisenhower Executive Office Building where they had the chance to sit down with Chief Official White House Photographer Pete Souza. Pete spent time talking through some of his photos and answered questions about everything from gear to what it takes to capture a great photo.
