Antwon and Marcia B Maxwell are husband and wife and partners in capturing amazing beauty and fashion photography in the District of Columbia. Antwon is an IT specialist and self-made professional beauty and fashion photographer. Marcia is a fashion stylist and owner and designer of luxury swimwear brand Marcia B Maxwell. Together, they capture truly stunning portraits of celebrities, models and clients in the DMV and around the country.
With a passion for technology and photography, Antwon has an eye for beauty through a highly technical lens. Completely self-taught in photography, he cultivated his signature style by offering free photo shoots to friends and learning everything he could online and by seeking feedback from professional mentors. He is a master at capturing people in their best light, both metaphorically and literally - he leads a photography and lighting workshop, teaching different lighting techniques in portraiture to photographers in the DMV area.
