True Hues is a photography and design studio launched by future husband and wife team, Michael and Charity. We're based in the Washington, D.C. metro area (but we travel too) and specialize in weddings, engagements and maternity services. We also offer services for family and baby portraits upon request.

We believe photography is an art form – and one of the most important investments you can make for any special event. It’s meant to tell a story, whether it be for a small family or for thousands of people.  Color, lighting, composition, and design all play key roles in developing art that captures emotion. 

Through photography, we freeze time during some of your happiest moments so you can feel the same emotions later on in life. Through design, we give you high quality presentation so you can have an enjoyable experience.



Meet Michael.

LEad Photographer / Chef

Michael is a man of many talents. He's a former chef who loves old records, building tables, and most importantly, photographing moments in time. He's been a photographer for the past five years, working with a range of organizations such as The Smithsonian, UberEats and Instagram.

He works best in settings with a lot of natural light and with people who aren't afraid to be themselves. His style is mostly photojournalistic so it makes sense that he appreciates organic energy the most. 


Meet Charity.

Art director / assistant photographer

Charity is a woman of just as many talents. She's an artist, designer and color lover. She believes color and lighting are the most important factors in setting the mood for a space, both physical and digital. Her experience in design mostly stems from her master's degree from MICA and work with small businesses. 

In her spare time, she loves finding creative vegan recipes, swimming, watching documentaries and taking long walks with her dog .
