I'm Maggie, a Washington, DC based wedding photographer and I absolutely love working with my Mom! Growing up, I was a classically trained dancer. I graduated with a BFA in modern dance from Point Park University where I also studied choreography. Developing dance pieces was my way of telling stories. I absolutely loved working closely with dancers to create movement that portrayed emotion and evoked feeling. As my time in the dance world ended, I followed in my mother's footsteps and found a home behind the camera. I found I loved photography just as much as I loved dance, and my ability to tell stories with my photos was exactly what I was searching for as an artist. Now, I tell the stories of our couples and their wedding days, preserving those moments and memories for generations to come. Some of my favorite moments to photograph are before the wedding begins, as a Bride prepares for her walk down that aisle. The fastening of a shoe's buckle, the draping of a veil, the glance over her shoulder at her reflection in the mirror... those moments tell a bigger story and I love capturing them. Using my background in choreography, I love to work with couples to create authentic and natural portraits. Understanding how the body works, I'm comfortable giving direction to our couples that creates gorgeous and effortless portraits that showcase their true personalities. When I'm not photographing a wedding or editing photos, you'll find me dancing barefoot in the living room to Bob Marley, digging in the mud, or flying to Mars in a cardboard box. I'm mom to two sweet, messy and loud little boys who love music and outer space. If I find a free moment to myself, I'll usually spend it in the kitchen testing out a new cookie recipe for my husband to gobble up.
I'm Betty, a Washington DC based wedding photographer who gets to work with her daughter! Although I live on a dirt road in rural Southern Maryland, I adore all that the city offers. DC holds a special place in my heart. I've always been a creative spirit. My first love of art came from creating things with my hands. From constructing and sewing my first dress as a little girl, to learning the art of knitting at the age of 55, I have constantly found joy in learning new creative outlets. Photography though, has won my heart. I received my first camera in my early teens and since then I have never been without one to document my life and those I love. I’ve come to learn that even the smallest, seemingly ordinary moments become treasured moments once your loved ones have passed on. As a wedding photographer I’m drawn to moments of quiet intimacy, those usually unseen by guests. I wait for hidden glances between the couple. I watch for emotional connections between a Bride and her father just before they begin the walk down the aisle. I cry during the parent dances knowing personally how difficult but equally heartwarming it is to give away a piece of your heart. As I witness the beginning of their new life together for each couple we work with, I become so excited for the joy that I know lies ahead for them. I know, because I have been married to my high school sweetheart for almost 40 years. I know the seasons of love they will experience and the marvelous possibilities that their future holds.When I'm not behind my camera, you'll find me knitting, relaxing with family or running after my two sweet grandsons.
