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 13 years, 5 of those years photographing weddings together. 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 love what we do and we'd be honored to be a small part of your story! Read less

Brilliant!!!!
Extremely professional and organized. An engagement session is something we were not originally interested in but came with our wedding package. It was a great way to meet them before the pressures of the big day and be comfortable and acclimated with the camera. They also helped me organize my big day by coming up with a "day of" schedule of events. They knew what photos and family formals were important to me ahead of time so that when the chaos after the ceremony occurred they knew what to do and no one was running around wondering where they were supposed to be!

The photos speak for themselves. They were STUNNING and exactly how I want to remember my big day. If you haven't visited their blog or website be sure to do so.They literally captured every moment and detail down to the music that was playing on my iPod when I was getting ready!

These girls are super fun to work with and really make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. They helped us get into poses and would even mimic them to show us. They love to laugh and have fun and I think that is what sets them and their work apart.

I received SOOOO many compliments on the photos and I am so happy to have these memories the rest of my life! XOXOXO

I don't even know where to begin when it comes to these two..... We were first drawn to their photography when we were browsing through a friend's wedding photographs. We loved their mastery of lighting and how their photography told a story of the day and not just snapshots. So, naturally, when we got engaged, they were one of the ones we explored and as soon as we met with both of them we knew they weren't just good photographers, but down right good people. These two put you at ease from the get go. In addition to being creative and fun, they put tremendous heart, soul and hard work into their art and genuinely love what they do. They have the gift of not just capturing the events of your day but the feelings as well. I can honestly say our wedding day would not have been the same without them and I genuinely feel we could not have asked for better photographers or people. Every photograph they have taken has been our favorite.

(I have to add that we used Andrea & Renata in conjunction with Hamilton Studios, our videographer, and I LOVED how they worked together.)

Andrea & Renata are PHENOMENAL!!! They were by far my favorite vendor from my wedding and I have the amazing pictures to prove why. From the moment I met with Andrea and Renata to do an initial consultation I felt comfortable with them. They both have outgoing personalities that make you immediately like them and trust them to do a great job. They were so easy to communicate with and are extremely responsive to any questions I had along the way. Not to mention they have a photography style that I think is unparalleled. They have a way of taking pictures that aren't fake looking, but really "capture the moment" and convey the emotions from your wedding day. They also did a great job of splitting up groom/bridal photos since there are two of them, and that really ended up saving us a TON of time on our wedding day. They truly made my wedding day special and just the fact that they were so upbeat the whole day made all the difference. So, if you're looking for some awesome, reliable, talented and FUN wedding photographers... choose Andrea & Renata!! You will not be sorry!

We can't say enough about these two wonderful and talented ladies! They literally "had us at hello". My now husband, when we first met Andrea and Renata, insisted we cancel the rest of our appointments and go straight to contract with them because, as he put it, if we didn't hire them to photograph our wedding, we'd totally invite them anyway! They are just that personable. And best of all, their photos are absolutely gorgeous and of the utmost quality. They were a joy to work with the whole way through an we are thrilled with our wedding photos!!

Andrea and Renata are the best! They are a little pricey, but they are seriously worth every penny. Plus their price includes an engagement photo session at a location of your choice, plus a CD of all the engagement and wedding pictures. They were also photographers at 2 of our friends' weddings (prior to our wedding) and the pictures for their weddings were also amazing. They are so fun to work with, and have a way of making everyone feel very comfortable in front of the camera, which clearly shows in the pictures. I could say a million great things about them, but their pictures speak for themselves, so go to their website and check out their pics.

Love, love, love these two!! They are not only amazing photographers but they are so fun to work with. My husband and I are not the most photogenic of couplese but with their help the pictures are all gorgeous. They take about a month to get everything to you which is the same as anywhere else. They are very good at getting back to you and dealing with jittery brides!!

I wish I could give more than five stars for Andrea & Renata. From the moment I met with them I just knew that they were going to be the perfect photographers for my wedding day. After delivering the most AMAZING engagement portraits, I did not know how I could wait untl my wedding day to be able to work with them again. Andrea and Renata make sure that they are giving you what you want in terms of pictures and do not force a bunch of uncomfortable posed portraits on you. They have the ability to capture the most intimate moments without you even knowing that you are having your picture taken. On my wedding day they surprised me with the addition of a third photographer to help capture every special moment of the day. They didn't miss a beat the entire day and stayed until the very end of he reception. I have only seen some of the pictures from the big day and to say I am pleased would be a total understatement. I cannot flip through the pictures without crying because I am just so happy that they were able to capture every detail, every smile, every special part of the best day of my life. You will absolutely not regret having them as your photographers for your big day!

We are so pleased with Andrea and Renata's photography for our summer wedding. After they made us feel so comfortable during our engagement pictures, I was so excited to have them around on our wedding day. They are so organized and had a timeline of everywhere that I needed to be on my wedding day, which made me feel so at ease. The photos that they took during our wedding day are absolutely perfect! We've received so many compliments on our wedding pictures. I would definitely recommend Andrea and Renata to any brides still looking for a photographer!

In general, we were very pleased with our photos and many people who attend the wedding mentioned how kind/bubbly/fun the photographers were. We definitely have some great photos...although many of the family ones were taken in front of a plain staircase - when there was a lot of nicer grassy area available. My biggest frustration was how long it took us to get the photos after the wedding. We never had a promised date to receive the photos, but were told likely before the holidays, which did not happen. We didn't get the photos until almost 3 months after the wedding (seemed like a whole lot of time to me!!) And the worst part was that having not made any agreement on the date, and having already paid our money, we had no choice but to just wait. If you hire A&R (which I don't recommend against - they are great photographers and very nice people!) - I would definitely recommend asking for a set date to receive the photos.

Andrea & Renata responded with the following comments:

We truly desire the best experience for all of our couples! Family formals can be a challenging portion of any wedding day and we try our best to make it run smoothly for all! :) In some cases, location for family pictures is dictated by the size of the group; as in this case, we had to accommodate a larger group of people (levels being our best option) with an acceptable background (void of cars and houses). In every case, we hope our couples feel comfortable enough with us to let us know when they'd rather have photos taken somewhere else if possible, or even have smaller groups in a different area. We are also very careful to respect the wishes of our couples and, in this case, we moved location of some family pictures to the side of the church at the request of the couple so the bride would not be seen by arriving guests.

As far as image turnaround time, we give approximate time frames that we try our best to work within. Gallery info was sent to this couple 13 days after the 2 month mark (10 days after Christmas Day), which was stated as the approximate turnaround time in our contract.

We love our job; we deeply desire to serve our couples on their wedding day and deliver images they are proud of. We had a great time celebrating with this couple and felt very welcomed on their wedding day. We wish you guys nothing but the best!
