• 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.

Yelena & Jose : Downtown Annapolis Wedding

Yelena & Jose’s wedding day was a huge celebration – of their love, their families, of all the people they care about being in one place from all over the world. The day was relaxed, non-traditional, fun and sincere…which was expected since Yelena & Jose are all of those things!

We arrived at Governor Calvert House in Annapolis to a ridiculously dreamy Casablanca Couture dress! Everything about Yelena’s look was simple and pretty.

Yelena & Jose : Annapolis Engagement

The first time we spoke with Yelena & Jose, our first impression was that they were fun. The first time we met them at their engagement session, that proved to be very true! Both fun-loving, relaxed and in love, Yelena & Jose brought so many ideas to their session and we had such a great time shooting them around Annapolis!

We started at The Annapolis Bookstore in their whimisical, cozy outdoor space.

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.
