• 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.

Shar’del & Josh : Historic London Town & Gardens Engagement

Their story begins a long time ago in younger years, the kind of thing in which their lives evolved to include each other. Now, Shar’del and Josh have a beautiful, growing family and are planning their wedding. We were thrilled to document their engagement session.

What originated as a DC cherry blossoms session turned into a quick change Annapolis session due to the crowds downtown, but we were so glad to shoot Shar’del and Josh around Historic London Town  & Gardens! The day was utterly perfect and the gardens proved to be an ideal backdrop for their spring engagement session.

Carlie & Daniel : Annapolis Maritime Museum Wedding

Last October, Carlie & Daniel set out on a trip to California to surprise Daniel’s mom on her birthday. They watched the sunrise in Annapolis and arrived in California in time to catch the sunset and Daniel took the opportunity to get down on one knee and propose! Over the next few months, Carlie & Daniel planned a perfectly Annapolitan wedding and we couldn’t have been more thrilled to capture their day.
