About

Mastering You, LLC is owned and operated by Allison DeFilippi and Angie Ferrell.  Our Life Photography and Memorable Affairs Planning is a unique experience, no matter what your photographic or event need.

Allison has had an interest in – and the eye for – photography for a long time.  She worked as a studio and wedding photographer and then stepped out on her own to do portrait and wedding photos part time.  In 2007 (and again in 2009 then 2011) she became a mommy and decided to run head on into full-time photography!

The things Allison enjoys the most are personal interaction with the client, and the documentation of “life photography” as it happens; be it a day to mark growth in a person, family or pet, an entire landmark wedding day, or festive party affair.

Allison brings to the table a younger eye with a photojournalistic approach- capturing even the quickest of moments or hints of a tear in a way you can hold close forever. All work is digital, allowing the opportunity for black and white, sepia-toning, or black and white with color enhancement. Touch-ups are also an option.

Angie has a business background, and when she found herself thoroughly enjoying planning her own wedding, she jumped into the coordinating business. She has flourished when planning other events – weddings, meeting organization, family theme parties, or holiday affairs. Being a mommy to 2 as well, and looking to branch out, her wheels started to turn. Both holding degrees from Mary Washington College, Allison and Angie have combined their local expertise of the greater DC area with their professional experiences to be able to present clients with all inclusive planning for any occasion as well as a variety of photographic services.

Mastering you specializes in event planning for any affair – be it a wedding, a birthday party, holiday event, or anything else you can come up with! We even plan on a small scale – Romantic outings! We offer intra-environment photography with any event, and we believe that family or individual photography can best be captured in a more natural environment: at your home, in your yard, or at a favorite park location. Weddings and other memorable affairs are unique to their own environments, and we are always sure to utilize each part of every distinctive location.

Please view some of our galleries to get an idea of photography style, and digital-enhancement abilities. We look forward to hearing from you!
