• 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.

Kaitlyn & Bryan : Southern Maryland Wedding

It was easy to see how family, tradition and circumstances were in Kaitlyn & Bryan’s favor when they wed. On June 28, Kaitlyn & Bryan said their “I do’s” on the exact same day each set of their parents did many years before in the exact same church that Kaitlyn’s parents and grandparents had married in. Their day was a sweet celebration of a new family beginning; a showcase of the beauty of the past affecting the present.

Leah & Matt : Old Town Alexandria Engagement

They met the summer before college and Leah can remember what they were both wearing. Spend any time with Leah & Matt and it’s easy to see how connected their lives have become and just how perfectly they complement each other. We were fortunate enough to spend an early morning with them this weekend, capturing their engagement session in Old Town Alexandria! The empty streets, cool breeze and Leah & Matt’s love, well, you can’t beat that combination.

Caitlin & Jordan : Annapolis Engagement

On their first date, Caitlin & Jordan basically toured downtown Annapolis and went from place to place to place, neither wanting to end the evening or quit talking. It seemed fitting to photograph them where it all began, so that’s what we did!

Gaylen & Stephen : Davidsonville Wedding

If the amount of love in their life is any precursor to the kind of marriage they’ll have, Gaylen & Stephen are in for a love-to-the-brim kind of life. Being prayed for and over by their mothers, sweet friends giving time and space for their wedding day, inside jokes, memories and more memories: these two are loved. We were welcomed into the fold by both Gaylen & Stephen and couldn’t have been more grateful.
