Briana Marie Photography
I cannot possibly express how amazing Briana was for our wedding! We live in Kansas City and organized a wedding in Sonoma from here. She was a wonderful personality, and made it very easy and comfortable for both of us. Briana was great a helping us personalize our package, and she was VERY helpful/responsive with all of my questions leading up to the wedding. I would absolutely recommend Briana as a photographer, and hopefully we will have the opportunity to work with her again. Thank you so much for everything!
We LOVE Briana! From first contact we knew we wanted Briana to shoot our wedding. We are so glad we jumped at the chance! Briana was very responsive when we had any questions, worked with us to make sure she would be able to get the pictures we had requested and went above and beyond what we had expected. I am giving her all 5's even without seeing all of our photos (yet). She is artistic, fun to work with and obviously loves what she does. By far one of our best vendors of the night!
Because we live in Southern California and getting married in Sonoma, we had to seek our photographer without meeting him/her in person until the day of our wedding at the winery. We found Briana through Project Wedding, and connected with her demeanor immediately! She was extremely easy to work with, very accessible, and was exactly the type of photographer we were seeking for our wedding day- laid-back and fun to be around! More importantly, Briana made everything we requested work- including an impromptu session in the winery's boxing ring and one including their resident ceramic cow.
We just received our pictures, and have gotten huge compliments from everyone about the quality of the images, and most especially around her ability to capture our personalities and the feel of the day. I am extremely pleased to have a body of work that shows the laughter and fun we had on one of the most important days of our lives, and would absolutely recommend Briana in a heartbeat!!
I can't say enough about Briana - she is an amazing individual and her work is outstanding. My husband and I both love photographer so we were a little picky on who we wanted to use. Brianna captured everything we wanted and more. There were one or two moments she caught with the sunsetting - those alone were worth everything.
Briana did an amazing job of capturing the emotions of the day - everything from the standard family photos but also those little moments in the ceremony, during the party etc. She knew the venue, knew the best places for shots and just kept snapping and getting incredible images.
From the brides point of view she is the easiest vendor and best vendor I have worked with. She was quick to respond to any questions, was always on time when we met, and the day of the wedding she was amazing. All my friends said make sure you personally like the photographer since they will be following you around all day. Having Briana around felt like having an old friend with you. She was so easy to be with, was not intrusive and was just plain fun to have around. Even when I was freaking out that my hair dresser was 45 minutes late Briana kept the mood light, was smiling and kept us busy with a few photo's until the hair dresser got there. I think the best compliment I could say is that some of our guests asked if we even had a photographer. To me this is a high compliment. It meant our guests weren't blinded by flashbulbs since Briana knew how to handle the lighting (lots of candle lights so not easy), that also meant we got candid moments.
Needless to say we were blown away with the photo's when we got them - we even got them earlier then expected !!! We had so much fun looking through them again and again. They have brought many smiles to our family.
I could keep going on and on. Briana is amazing to work with! I highly recommend working with Briana - you'll love working with her and most importantly you'll love the work she produces for you!
Briana is simply amazing. The first time I spoke to her was only 2 months before our wedding (short engagement time) and I immediately felt like I was in good hands. She told me what she usually does - and she knows what she is talking about. ;) But she also left room for our ideas as well - my husband and I wanted some vineyard/ nature pictures. She was personal and the whole family liked here. We had a really small ceremony and she was there taking pictures but at the same time "invisible", which was great.
And of course and most importantly: the pictures are PERFECT!
Convince yourself and have a look at them:
Briana is definitely one of a kind…we are so happy we were referred to her. Anyone who checks out her website can see she has a fantastic eye but it becomes so much more real when you are looking at photos of yourself and loved ones…she makes everyone look like a model!! We first met Briana when she shot our engagement photos last summer…from the moment we met her we knew we wanted her to shoot our wedding but when we got our engagement photos we were convinced…the photos were AMAZING.
Briana is so easy to work with, after a few moments you forget she is there and that is when the true moments are captured. On our wedding day we had the honor of meeting her husband who worked with her for the day….we had so much fun with them at Crissy Field and this joy can be seen in our photos. They work so well together with this ability to go unnoticed but their photos certainly get notice.
Here are a few comments we have received since showing our photos to friends, how better to describe her ability…
“Love the photographs she really captured the best parts of the day in such a natural way”
“OMG!!! Fantastic!! What more can I say. Love, love, love them”
WOW they are gorgeous some really fab pictures!! She's the best ever!!
“They are the most fabulous wedding photos I have ever seen”
Briana professionalism and enthusiasm for her work does not overshadowed her kindness…she is amazing person and I know she will see us in the future!! Our photos are something we will treasure forever. Thank you

My husband and I are so thrilled we found Brian to capture the moments of our special day! They say the day goes so fast and you miss so much. Thanks to Briana and her assistant, Jennifer’s wonderful talents, our day will live on forever. We can see many of the things we missed, and our friends and family that couldn't attend can feel like they were there with us. I already have way too many favorites picked out. I am still beaming, and her pictures keep making smile and cry all over again.
My husband usually doesn't smile in pictures, but Briana made him feel so comfortable in our engagement photo session, that he smiled away. By the time our wedding day came, I think he smiled almost as much as I did. Our friends and family cannot stop raving about our engagement and wedding pictures either!
You truly will love Briana!
Briana's style and expertise are hands down the best in Napa Valley for weddings and events. You hardly notice she is there. She has captured my children and events I have hosted in timeless photographs that speak countless words to me. She is a pleasure to work with, very professional and is Napa Valley's best kept secret. One look at her book and you will see...
The pictures are SUPERB!!! They turned out beautifully, and we are SO HAPPY and feel so blessed to have found you!! Your words on your blog were so kind...and you are right -- so many great pictures to choose from, thanks to you! We are so excited....
We just can't thank you enough. The pictures are phenomenal and we are thrilled!
"Wow. The photos turned out just beautiful. I'm loving your artistic eye...you captured way more than we could have wished for and will enjoy these photos for a lifetime. It has been such a pleasure working with you, getting to know you and witnessing you work! Thank you!"
"I am so impressed Briana. We got our pictures today... they are beautiful! You are so talented! Thanks for all of your hard work. You are so creative!!"

Briana Marie is an amazing photographer! I've had the pleasure of working with dozens of wedding photographers, and Briana is one of my favorites. Most recently we worked together on an intimate wedding in the Wine Country. The couple was from out of the country, and Briana was responsive, flexible and patient with big time differences! On the wedding day she is efficient, creative and calm, qualities I appreciate because it makes the day even better for the bride, groom, and their guests.
Once you see Briana's beautiful and artistic photos you will definitely want to work with her, and I highly recommend it!
The Eloquence String Quartet would like to recommend Briana Marie Photography. Her wedding portraits are some of the most beautiful we have seen. We asked Briana to do the promo photos for the quartet and enjoyed working with her. She was friendly and easy to work with and managed to get all four of us to look good in the same picture. We were very happy with the results.
Briana does a wonderful job with wedding photography. She and her partner take beautiful photographs!
I so enjoy working with them...and the photographs are a remembrance of the beauty of the wedding day for so many to enjoy..sometimes when I see the photographs from a wedding that I have been part of many months later....I think these are nice but when I see Briana Marie's I am taken back to that wedding day.
Creating the feeling of the day in pictures is a talent indeed! Love...
We love working a wedding or event with Briana-Marie, her photos are always gorgeous!

What I love about Briana Marie's Photography is the story that she tells with her pictures. She has the ability to capture the emotion of the day with her photography. Visit her website and see. When I watch her video compilation of photos from weddings, I always find myself getting choked up with emotion. This is why my son and his fiance have chosen her to photograph their wedding.
For a moment...just one moment, the world is still. The world is quiet.
All you have is a moment...to tell their story...
to tell the story of the lives behind the lens."
Briana Marie Photography is the result of followed bliss stirred in with passion, determination and the desire to make a positive connection. Briana was always in awe of the world around her and began attempting to portray it in images at a young age. Once she open the door to shooting weddings, she has not looked back. She now photographs weddings, environmental portraits & freelances in commercial & editorial work. Her work reflects the sensitive nature in which she approaches life, her subjects and the joy she finds in photography.
