We are Jay and Jacqueline. This is us on our wedding day!
Yes, we brought our cameras! We are hopeless romantics and wedding photographers who are addicted to telling real love stories of couples just like you. When we are not traveling the world telling stories of love and life or meticulously retouching and printing art for your home…
We can often be found watching sunrises on a quaint beach on the Chesapeake Bay in Southern Maryland, in a little town just south of DC with our Jack Russell, named Tiger. We have adopted quite a few friends we have made along the way. We can’t wait to get to know you.
Sharing your special day. And seeing the look on your face the first time you see your handmade album? Priceless!
Jacqueline and Jay

We help you create art for you home from incredible moments and experiences in your life. As trusted advisers we help guide you along the way. We are there for you. Not as your official wedding planner but as trusted advisers. With more than 20 years experience in our relationship we also know a little something about love marriage and relationships and how it grows. We look forward to being there and growing with you.
We value everything real. We love who you are as people and encourage you to just be yourselves. For the times where we do more formal portraits, we'll teach you to pose naturally to enhance your natural assets. No weird, silly pet tricks, or awkward poses. Jacqueline was a professional model throughout college, it paid for school with no debt, and has studied the old masters of posing. She believes who you are is naturally beautiful and helps you enhance your natural and best assets. With simple and easy flowing adjustments that encourage you to just be you. We love road trips and will go to any destination with you too. Let's see something new together, make a memory, create.
Engagement sessions or as we like to call them, "get to know you" sessions are our fun time. We let our hair down and so do you. We love taking the time to get to know you and build connections. Let's have some laughs and help you get rid of your photo jitters. We use our sessions to help you and us prepare for your wedding day. The more we can help you relax and feel comfortable with us, the more intimate beautiful and real your images are.
We love adventure and will go literally almost anywhere with you to create a wonderful experience and great art for your home. Want some help with your planning or all of it. We are happy to help. We thrive off spending time with crazy adventurous souls. Let's go.
We are so happy you found us. We love seeing you and showing you how beautiful you are. We also love showing the connection you have with each other and the world around you. And my favorite moment is when we place hand made art we created for you in your hands and you smile, laugh and cry.
We are documentary storytellers, and we are very interested in getting to know you and who you are. We consider investing our time getting to know the real you as an important part of telling your story. Knowing and understanding your real feelings helps us to create images that truly represent you at this point in your lives. Years will pass, you will grow together, change. People will pass. We want to show your real emotions and feelings documenting who you are and your love and relationships in a time capsule for you of who you are right now.
We don't take images we create them. We get to know you understand you and get you. We also educate you so you feel relaxed and know what to expect. Then we pay attention and wait for decisive moments. After we create images our job has only begun. After we create images the real art begins. We work with you to determine which images make your heart sing the most and make you feel and remember. We help you choose the best paper for a particular image or collection of images for your walls and keepsake albums. We perfectly hand retouch every image in a very natural way before. We hand print images at our studio and also work with the finest printers in the world and have developed relationships with them too so your images withstand the test of time with archival papers and be hand printed perfectly.
