Best Engagement Session of the Year

I had the pleasure of photographing these two peas in a pod, my friends, Keila and Toti, to celebrate their engagement and I was floored with their beautiful admiration for one another while capturing moments between the two of them. We strolled around Georgetown near the Canal and up to the M St. and even though it was cold we hardly didn't care because we were having such a blast doing this shoot. If I got a cold it was totally worth it. I literally couldn't be more happier for them on this new journey and with the results of these amazing images too ...See for yourselves below - come on you know you love them.

Congratulations once again amigos queridos!!

A Bundle of Joy

Priscila S. was expecting her baby boy when she reached out to us to be our Maternity model for our bundle of joy promo. It was an amazing experience to be at her home photographing her and this love for baby Pedro Henrique before and after his birth. It is so rewarding to be able to do these types of portraits. 

This is a reminder that we have a new service called the Bundle of Joy package where you have the chance to have portraits of your maternity as well as newborn portraits for only $350. So amazing to be able to offer these service in one for a low cost. We want you to take away from this experience how incredibly valuable your family is and how these photographs are vital for you and your family collection of photographs. I'm so passionate about this new service and I pray you take the opportunity to take advantage of this deal. Contact us today regarding this and let's make some great memories!

Ana & Wes: A Wedding Story

I'm so freaking ecstatic that I got to photograph my friends engagement and wedding day. Ana  and Wes are the goofiest and kindest bunch of love birds and I'm so blessed to call them my friends. Ana's been there for me since the beginning of my career, actually since the first time I fell in love with photography which was during high school when attending the Art and Humanities Magnet School, James Hubert Blake HS. I felt the love during these moments documented below and I hope you may feel it too. Congratulations to Ana and Wes and their happy ever after ending. 

Be The Vixen of Your Dreams

Va-va-voom! Things are heating up here at our studio with this recent seductive boudoir shoot featuring the lovely "DMFK." She rocked a few different looks in this series, one of which is bound to catch your eye. Varying from country boots to Victorian-style corsets and laughing shots to intense gazes, the constant was the exuding sensuality the camera captured. This half-Brazilian half-American babe fell into character and made it all the more exciting to photograph in the bedroom.

Happy Baby Happy Family Happy Life

On a beautiful day we went to Sligo Creek to shoot Pau's Family first ever portrait session. We explored and we laughed. It was such a great time and so wonderful to see that they were enjoying themselves as well. They wanted sunny outdoor family portraits and that's what they got. Check out the color and black and white photos below of their beautiful and growing family.

Carson + Doug: A Wedding Story

Carson and Doug decided that even though they have a life in Pennsylvania doing doctor duties they wanted to go back to where they came from, where their roots were. So to Maryland they came to vow their love and lives to each other. It was a nostalgic and sophisticated wedding from ceremony being held at Carson's high school to reception party at the family's farm. This event made us definitely swoon with all it's country side glory. It was a night full of tears of joy, fireworks (literally) and guests dancing the night away with with the help of a cover band from Richmond, VA. Very ecstatic they chose Studio Pri to cover their wedding. Blessed to be part of the magic. Want to see what I'm referring to? Keep on scrolling down and you'll find awesome imagery by the crew (Pedro, Dee and Priscilla) 

Bundle of Joy: Maternity and Newborn Photo Sessions

We decided to expand our family this year as well as our services. With the coming of our newest edition, baby Enzo, who is the most sweetest and delicious creature next to his big brother Rocco, I was inspired to do a two in one photo sessions for families who were expecting and wanted to document these special moments. It's the Bundle of Joy photo package. which includes for only $350; a one hour maternity photo session two months before the baby is born and a one hour new born photo session which we will set it for about a week or two after the baby arrives. It's a great way to savor the memories of a beautiful milestone. 

Check out me and my family in Miami and Enzo new born portraits here in our home below. We're so happy and so blessed and here's to spreading the love!

Jenny and Jeffrey: A Wedding Story

Jenny, and Jeffrey were the kindest and generous group of clients that we had the pleasure of working with early this year. And don't they look gorgeous!! Our squad was there to make everyone look their best; from Pedro Carvalho on Video, Dee Wong as second shooter, Priscilla Ledesma as director and shooter and Thais Pereira doing makeup and hair and  making the bride feel like a true star. It was perfectly natural and very well put together with smiles all around that you couldn't help but be contagiously in love with the whole endearing extravaganza. What buenissimo time we had capturing a mixture of Mexican, American and Puerto-Rican culture  and joining in this celebration of love.  We couldn't we ask for more.

Salud Jenny and Jeffrey... Here's to many years of love and happiness

Jen & Greg: A Wedding Story

It's such an amazing treat for me to capture my friends wedding especially a childhood friend that I call family such as Jenny and her awesome hubby Greg. They met in Art school and decided after a few years that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. They married at their baptist church in Fort Lauderdale, FL and the rest is history.  I'm so very happy for them and their love and wish them nothing but the sweetest time together for ever and ever!

Courtney and Ryan; these warm hearted lovebirds who make us feel luck to have them as clients, chose to have their engagement session at the Washington mall and stroll around all the nooks-and-cranies this site offers. I love checking these monumental spots out with my clients. It's always a new adventure; finding different perspectives in this regal town to photograph is a real treat. Especially when the subjects are as adorable and sweet as these two are. Ahhhhh So in Love! What a great feeling to capture when shooting an engagement story such as this.
