hay adams hotel weddings I The bride and groom pose on the balcony at their Hay Adams Wedding in DC.

Congrats on your Hay Adams wedding!

We are Katye & Joe Brier. Married photojournalists. We have history, we have cameras, we have a height difference. We think two heads are better than one. Four eyes are better than two. The best way we can describe our work is artistic journalism. Authentic meets creative.

We have been lucky to photograph several weddings at the amazing Hay Adams Hotel over the years – it’s one of our very favorite places in DC to be photographers. We both began our careers as news photographers, so our approach is to get out of the way, and capture what unfolds.

Observing people, anticipating moments and storytelling is in our muscle memory. Combined, we have more than three decades of experience as photojournalists, shooting and editing for publications small and large. We’ve been photographing weddings 12 years, and have worked with over 300 couples. Yes…that’s a whole lot of wedding cake. (Read a handful of kind words here).

This is but one stop on a completely crazy planning and decision-making journey. It’s the fun part! Please check out the gallery below, which features images from our Hay Adams Hotel weddings only – or stop on over to our main website to get more of a flavor for our work. And please don’t hesitate to drop us an inquiry!
