My style borders non-traditional is all about blending candid moments with a romantic editorial approach. I want to document the real emotions and genuine interactions between you and your loved ones but also transform those moments into timeless pieces of art. Your unique love story becomes the masterpiece, filled with emotions, connections, and the beauty of your journey together. I pour my heart and soul into every moment, ensuring that each image tells a story and evokes the same emotions years down the line.
To create an environment where these special moments can come to life, my photography style places a strong emphasis on movement-driven direction. By encouraging natural movement and interactions, I strive to capture authentic and genuine moments that reflect the unique dynamics of each couple. Rather than relying on static posing, I I prefer to give subtle prompts or directions that encourage foster genuine emotion, interaction, and create a sense of connection. This approach allows for me to document this season of life in a way that is organic, authentic, and meaningful, resulting in images that truly reflect your love story. Whether it's a gentle caress, a spontaneous laugh, or a stolen kiss, these moments are what make your relationship special and I am dedicated to capturing them in a way that is both artful and timeless.
Establishing a strong relationship built on trust is an essential ingredient in the secret sauce of what I do. It's not just about taking beautiful photos, but also about creating a connection that allows you to feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera. From our initial conversations to the final delivery of your photos, I will be there every step of the way, providing guidance, support, and reassurance. I understand that being in front of the camera can feel vulnerable and intimidating, but I assure you that I will guide you through the process with patience, empathy, and understanding.
“Brianna truly creates magic behind her lens. For those that might be feeling a little camera shy, she does an incredible job of making you feel confident, relaxed, and authentically you-- and it really shines through in the photos!
We're so grateful to have met her and hope to shoot with her again soon. She's professional, creative, fun, and absolutely overdelivers in the quantity and quality of her work.
North Carolina, you're lucky to have her-- if she was in California, she'd 100% be our go-to photog for all our needs!”
When I say the adventure session we had with Brianna was a dream…. It’s an understatement! We had never done professional pictures before and really had no idea what to expect. I always saw her photos and thought “I would never look like that!” Man was I wrong. Brianna made us feel like we were just on a date night having a blast together. She played music, made us laugh, and basically prompted us to be goofs together. My favorite part was that she never once “posed” us. Everything she prompted us to do was movement based which created images that are so authentically “us”. We can’t wait for another trip to the mountains so we can have an excuse to book a session with Brianna again. BEST DECISION YOU CAN MAKE!
Ps I got engaged at the end of the session and somehow had no idea that was coming…. props to Brianna for keeping it cool.
Brianna is amazing! We hired her for our wedding in April 2021. Initially, we had planned to work with another photographer, but after the engagement session, we knew it wasn't going to work so we decided to look for someone new. That's when we found Brianna. We were so nervous to switch courses, but it was the BEST decision we could possibly have made. First, Brianna's work is truly incredible. Her photography is art. She has an eye for composition and framing and her edits are beautiful. And on top of it, she's easy and fun to work with, while also being completely professional. She has amazing resources to help you plan your looks and locations for your shoots. She helped us develop a timeline that was essential on the day of (especially with our crazy wedding party), and was great at putting us at ease during the shoots–giving us poses and suggestions throughout. I would recommend her to anyone. We seriously couldn't be happier
"Brianna is absolutely amazing! We did a couples session with her and it was so effortless. From start to finish she kept us laughing and honestly showing genuine emotion which is really important to me. She guided us as far as direction, but avoided stiff posing and made it so much fun! The session flew by, and we really can’t wait to work with her again. "
Brianna was so great to work with. She made my husband and I so comfortable and that made the photo sessions so easy! She was fun and so sweet. She had the best ideas and was up for anything we had in mind, including jumping in freezing water. I highly recommend Brianna for any and every occasion you need photographed!
My fiancée and I spent countless hours searching for the PERFECT photographer for our engagement pictures. Brianna surpassed ALL of our expectations. She was so patient in helping us decide the right location for us and was so friendly throughout the whole process. We are IN LOVE with our pictures and would definitely recommend using Fern & Flower Photography for ANY occasion.
Our photos were really important for us since they will be a forever reminder of our wedding day. Brianna blew us away with her skilled eye for beautiful settings and pulling together our vision. She was extremely intuitive, and the results were excellent! We had never met her before, but she did a wonderful job of figuring out what we wanted and pulling it together seamlessly. Moreover, the experience of working with her on our wedding day was such a joy. I never thought that taking the pictures would be such a wonderful experience. But her calm and kind demeanor made it a relaxing experience. She did an excellent job of handling the timing of the photos even though we had some strange restraints and she worked well and was flexible with our requests. Brianna was great at getting the photos we were hoping for and more, especially considering our time constraints. She made the flow of the wedding her primary goal and never sacrificed guests’ comfort to capture photos. She was able to take the photos while blending in and helping our guests to enjoy the celebration as well. She captured the joy and the beauty of our wedding so perfectly; we couldn’t be happier with the experience and the results!
In our very first phone conversation Brianna won me over with her gentleness, professionalism, and sweet personality - she helped put me at ease throughout the entire wedding planning process. Choosing Fern and Flower Photography for our wedding photos was one the best decisions we made! While we had specific photos we wanted captured, there were many aspects of a traditional wedding day that we were questioning or considering changing. Working with Brianna allowed us to bounce ideas off of her and hear her thoughtful suggestions as we went, after all, she's been behind the scenes for many more of these than we have! Brianna's flexibility and availability were incredible, in the planning process and on the day of the wedding. Two days before the big day, the increasing risk of covid-19 caused us to change ceremony locations and let go of some other details we were hoping to take care of. She immediately shifted plans right along with us and made herself as accessible as needed while we figured it out. Any non-traditional elements we carefully chose were taken to heart and captured - we were so appreciative of the details and candid moments that we now have to cherish in these photos!
I am awe of the beauty and joy that Fern and Flower Photography captured for us!
