I'm Brianna. Pennsylvania based wedding + portrait photographer. My hair is typically in a messy bun, I usually have a baby on my hip, and I never say no to cake. I want photographs to feel as good as they look, and my overly sentimental, married, momma heart knows the weight of soulful photographs all too well.

Hotel Du Village Wedding | Laura & Chris

I have been looking forward to this Hotel Du Village wedding all year! When Laura and Chris inquired with me, Laura made a point to tell me that she absolutely loves black & white and low-lit photos. She wanted the pictures to be more documentary style with lots of in between moments, and I knew right then and there that I loved them and wanted to work with them!

I absolutely LOVE photographing in candlelit receptions. If you want that glowy, romantic vibe, you have to have a ton of ambient light. You need to bring in lots and LOTS of candles and very dim overhead lights of some sort to really pull it off. Laura + Chris’ reception showcases this well!

This reception was a perfect example of photographing without a flash and the associated results. They had just the right amount of lighting (it can’t be too too dark, otherwise it won’t work!) and what a beautiful ambiance and feeling these images have. The entire reception was candlelit and it is one of my favorite receptions I’ve photographed. Now scroll down and experience that glowy, candlelit Hotel Du Village wedding for yourself!
