The Happy Couple Photography, LLC

Two Heads. Four Eyes.

Thanks for your interest!

That’s us up there – Katye & Joe Brier. Married photojournalists and Vermont wedding photographers. 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 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.

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 Vermont weddings only; from Mad River Barn, to the Shelburne Museum, we’ve been fortunate to work with many fabulous couples as Vermont wedding photographers. If you’d like to review even more information, head 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!

Happy Couples
We've worked with so many fabulous couples since we started our business back in 2007. Here are a few of the kind words we've received.
Renee & Tyler

"What I love so much about their photos was their photojournalistic approach to the moments of whimsy, emotion, and beauty that comes from genuine, unposed moments. Every time I look through the photographs they took from my wedding day I feel like I am reliving the day over again."

Micaela & Sandi

"The Happy Couple Photography were phenomenal - they were responsive, reached out to us at specific increments throughout the planning process to ask questions and get all of our details straight, and made sure to get every shot we wanted."

Tricia & Max

"If there were 6 stars I would give them. Joe and Katye did a wonderful job of catching both the big moments and the little moments of our wedding. Their ability to capture everything about "the moment" is incredible, and why we chose them. What I told Joe directly - "You have brought the entire day and incredible experience back for us, which is all I could hope for my wedding pictures. What you two do - capturing the spirit and emotion of the day - is so special and important, and I will have these photos to cherish forever. That is truly priceless."

Jessica & George

"We chose the Happy Couple as photographers for our wedding because we wanted more candid shots that captured the emotions of the day, rather than staged photos. They did not disappoint! From the very beginning, they were very easy to work with and thought of every detail. We absolutely love the wedding photos -- they capture our day perfectly!"

Ali & Mel

"They do not simply take pictures, they capture elements, personalities and intimacy. Through the process of getting to know you as a couple, Joe and Katye learn who you are, how you interact and the idiosyncrasies that create the foundation of your relationship, and display your essence through their photojournalistic approach. When looking through your album, you will notice the tiny moments, gestures, smiles, embraces, laughs, funny faces that are caught and woven together, as you relive every emotion of the day."

Ashley & Chris

"We had such a fantastic experience working with Joe and Katye! They captured the most amazing moments and are true magicians when working with natural light. We have so many gorgeous photos from our sunset shoot. They also did such a great job keeping the photos moving so that family members didn't dominate and our wedding party didn't get cranky! They also responded to questions promptly and turned the photos around very quickly."

Kara & Derek

"Joe and Katye were such a pleasure to work with and took away all the stress of getting those perfect shots you dream about on your wedding day. I had some ideas of pictures I wanted to be sure to capture and they were happy to take my shot list. They also got amazing, unique photos that I never even thought about! It rained on our wedding day which made me nervous about photos but Joe and Katye still got some truly beautiful shots of us and assured me that they had a total handle on the situation, rain or shine!"

Kelsey & Phil

"To say Joe and Katye are amazingly awesome would be doing them a disservice, because they are so much more than that. My favorite part of hiring these two is that they made us laugh. They were our friends by the end of the night. The photo turnaround time was helped by the fact that they sent over a sneak peek about a week after the wedding. Such a great way to show off some photos to family and friends immediately. The final album was a full set of all color and a full set of black and white. We were overjoyed with the photos and will treasure them forever."

Gio & Josh

"We couldn't be happier with our photos and album. They captured the emotion and story of the day so perfectly-- from the big happenings on the dance floor to the quieter moments like a quick smile or loving glance. I didn't think it was possible to infuse so much emotion and personality into a photo, but Joe & Katye do just that. Their professionalism is second to none and they make the process easy, stress free and FUN!"
