• 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 & 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.

Gaylen & Stephen didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony so they came up with a clever way to pray together beforehand:
