About Patrick Brien Photography
Patrick Brien Photography has just recently made the long move from the Charleston, South Carolina back home to the Western New York area. We are scheduling bookings now, please contact Patrick with any questions or to set up a meeting!
My passion for photography really took flight when I worked with an embedded photo-journalist named John McHugh while serving overseas in Afghanistan. His ability to capture our day to day life full of emotion, danger, brotherhood and complicated socio-political dynamics was truly inspiring. In a few dozen photos, John summed up a deeply meaningful and heartfelt experience that we ourselves could barely articulate with words.
Using his inspiration I began my journey behind the camera as a self-taught landscape photographer. While landscape photography has been, and continues to be, a very worthwhile experience, I did not find my true photographic passion until I began photographing portraits and weddings in Charleston, South Carolina. Being afforded the privilege to share such a special day with such extraordinary families has truly been a blessing. With each event that Patrick Brien Photography does, my enthusiasm for weddings, people and occasions increases more and more. Telling these stories in a beautiful and meaningful way is the Patrick Brien Photography passion. Just as John captured an important event in my life from behind the lens, I strive to capture the moments that make the story and will be cherished for years to come.
I am based in the Northeast but find myself all over the country on a regular basis. No city is too far, no job too big or too small, and I am more than happy to travel in order to capture your special event. Whether it is a wedding, engagement session, family reunion, high school senior portraits, anniversary or graduation, I would love to be a part of it. As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or to schedule a phone, Skype/Facetime or in-person meeting. To see some of our wedding photos, please click here.
