• Helping love win – one wedding at a time.

    We are Andrea & Renata, a pair of best friends who strive to create fresh images and fun experiences for the people who invite us into their stories. We met our freshman year of high school and our friendship has grown over the past 14 years, 6 of those photographing weddings together. We photographed our first wedding in 2008, on Valentine's weekend, and since then it's been our privilege to capture over 100 weddings and engagement sessions.

    Though we've had our work featured by Martha Stewart Weddings, The Knot, Washingtonian Bride & Groom, and Baltimore Bride to name a few, our proudest accomplishments are becoming real life friends with many of our brides, maintaining happy marriages and raising 5 (really cute) kids collectively...all at the same time.

    We truly believe that we've found our niche in the world with wedding photography. We're so grateful to our clients for allowing us the opportunity to grow legacies, theirs and ours.

    Our blog is the place where we share recent weddings and sessions, features, vendor friends and our lives. Feel free to look around and visit our main website for more information. Thanks for joining us on this little adventure we're so blessed to be a part of.

    Andrea & Renata

Alysha & Tyler : Georgetown & Cherry Blossom Engagement

Alysha & Tyler killed our first session of the year! We met in Georgetown for some fun around Tyler’s office, then braved downtown for some coveted cherry blossom shots. Alysha & Tyler are sweet, full of life and in love and we had  great time spending time with them (even in crazy tourist traffic)!

Laura & Matt : AVAM Wedding

There’s a Japanese legend that anyone who folds 1,000 paper cranes will be granted good luck, so what better way to decorate a wedding? Laura told us about the labor of love which was folding what turned out to be more than 1,000 cranes for the wedding day, and they were a beautiful touch. As far as good luck, Laura & Matt’s wedding day went off without a hitch and they married their best friend. We’re believers.
