• 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.

Melissa & Will : Silver Swan Bayside Wedding

The most vivid memory I have of Melissa and Will on their wedding day perfectly sums up the feeling of the whole day: Melissa & Will were surprised by a live mariachi band at their reception and, as the band began to play, Melissa exclaimed happily to Will, “This is for us!” with a giant smile. The day truly was about celebrating a remarkable couple and it was as good as it sounds.

With just a couple weeks to go until their big day, we met up with Katy & Andy at a park near their new place to capture some engagement portraits! The evening was lovely and the park lent itself to fun and romantic images.
