A little bit about me...
Oh hi! I'm Brittney.
As you might have guessed, I’m Brittney, a traveling photographer of weddings, couples, and awesome people all around the world. I’ve been shooting weddings since 2013, but it all really started long before that, with some cheap film cameras and a lot of terrible artsy images.
I grew up in Los Angeles, but I’ve been on the east coast for over a decade. Fishtown, Philadelphia is my home base these days - I can't live without local favorites like La Colombe coffee, Pizzeria Beddia white pizza + soft serve, and Loco Pez tacos. Some of my other favorite things are monochrome, tattoos, plants, dogs, cats (I love them both!), cocktails, The Moth podcast, and the occasional fancy evening.
Traveling is my favorite, and I try to do it as often as possible. I feel incredibly lucky to get to travel to document people’s lives, and I'm never more inspired than when I'm in a new place (hire me to shoot your destination wedding, hint hint).
Although I am an emotional INFJ/enneagram 4w5 who reads too much modern poetry and cries during almost every movie (and tv show, and book, and commercial...), I’m also pretty silly, and I’ll probably make you laugh during photos with dad jokes and a goofy sense of humor. Because if you can’t laugh at yourself, then what’s the point of anything?
When I’m not taking photos or editing, I’m probably cooking, traveling, rewatching The Office for the millionth time, or hanging out with my partner Ross and our two cats.
I’m a little non-traditional in the scope of the wedding industry. I value moments and emotion above all else. My goal is to not just capture how the day looked, but how it felt. The photos I love most are not of things, but people. The unexpected details that transport you right back into a moment. The photos with some silliness. Lingering hugs. Crying parents. Epic dance floor shenanigans. Open-mouthed wild laughter. A perfectly-timed gust of wind. The secret conversation between two sets of hands. I believe that the real story of a marriage is found in the tiniest moments on a wedding day. In the perfect imperfections.
You’ve probably heard this a lot, but your wedding day will be a blur. An emotional, crazy, nonstop, incredible blur. It’ll be lots of planning and care leading up to it, and just like that, it’ll be over. That’s where I come in. I try my best to freeze time during that blur while you live out one of the most monumental days of your life. I think being a wedding photographer is the freaking best, and no, it’s not because of the cake (although if I’m being honest, cake definitely helps!). Telling stories and freezing moments forever is the closest I can get to actual magic, and I truly can't imagine doing anything else.
