In our 2014 Feature Photos of the Year, we bring you a look at some of our favorite moments of the past year — many in a lighthearted fashion.  

One of the things we love about shooting photos for Roll Call is the opportunity to capture the spectacle of Congress and politics just like a local community newspaper would cover its small town. The only difference is that our community is Congress, which lends itself to some compelling photographs beyond the headlines.  

We pride ourselves on trying to stay away from the media pack whenever possible. While it’s always a risk that we will miss “the” photo from an event, it allows us to find situations other media outlets probably won’t see. With very few exceptions, a Roll Call photographer was the only member of the media present to capture these moments.  

And it’s these moments I consider true Roll Call photos.
