Washington, dc based wedding photographers

our vision

Bonnie is the mastermind behind all the photos and her background as an architect helps her obsess about the details, framing and horizon lines of every single photograph. She has been photographing weddings, portraits and families locally and internationally for the better part of a decade. She has been published widely, and energetically looks forward to every single future photograph to come.

After work Bonnie loves French wine, Dim Sum brunch, reading magazines, and running with their dog Charlie. She is always planning the next trip or home décor project.

As the other half of Bonnie Sen Photography, Tom has your back in making the photos you want, happen. His background in architecture and design influences him not only as an amazing photographer, but his past experiences give him the ability to coordinate large and complex projects - much like a wedding! As a partner and boutique business owner you’ll see his emails, messages and his spiky hair in person.

Outside of photography Tom enjoys spicy Thai food, mountain biking, skiing, EDM shows and traveling to cold, northern countries.

We believe in the power and permanence of an image. We believe that a well-crafted photograph can speak the volumes that words often cannot fill. Our goal is to create lifelong, heirloom imagery that speaks to generations to come.

Our passion for photography is fueled by our lifelong dedication to art & design. We use our background in architecture to help you visualize, produce and capture the best possible photographs from your celebration of a lifetime.


During the week We photograph families, anniversaries, couples, and any other portraits. The ideal time for these photos is a few hours before sunset, and it usually takes 1 hour.  Email us directly to schedule a date and time. 

Our experience is not only limited to weddings and portraits. Please visit our commercial work portfolio through this link.

We also offer one-on-one mentoring sessions to photographers. Please email for further information. 


Capturing the events of a wedding day in a combination of fine-art and photojournalistic style is a challenge that we whole-heartedly embrace. As hybrid photographers we shoot weddings in both film and digital photography formats, using a Contax645 for the film and currently use a Sony system for the digital format. 

We have photographed events in Wasghinton DC, Maryland, Jamaica, Oregon, California, Virginia, Colorado, and look forward to our next new location.
