Birds of a Feather Photography, established in 2010, is a mother and daughter team of wedding photojournalists, based in Washington, DC. Using both documentary and fine art styles of photography, they create timeless and authentic photographs of the weddings they document. Their goal is to capture the fleeting moments of a wedding day, preserving love stories for the generations to come. Betty and Maggie make it a priority to connect with couples on a personal level, and build comfortable relationships based in trust, laughter and a mutual appreciation for the role photography plays in preserving legacies of love.
"Our passion for photography grew out of a love affair with an old shoebox of black and white photos. There, in that dusty box, we read the story of our family's history, and came to know generations of people we never met. We picked up these photos, held them in our hands, and looked into the faces of people who were gone. The ones who went before us. The ones who wrote the first chapters of our own stories. There they wait. There, in those photos, their memories endure without yielding. They will continue in that place, in our hearts, in our memories, until the universe connects us again.
This is why we take pictures."
