• 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.

Caitlin & Paul : Peabody Library Wedding

Caitlin & Paul met while they were undergrads at Johns Hopkins and, though it took a while for the day to come, they married on a lovely fall day in the city where they fell in love. The day was perfectly classic and lovely!

(A huge thank you to Melissa Hoffman for coming to assist us while Renata’s in her third trimester! A few of these shots are hers!)
