We are Katye & Joe. 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.
You are probably here because you are excited about your photography. You are looking for pictures that will recall moments and memories. Maybe even something a little offbeat. You aren't scared by a little dust on your dress hem, and you’re looking for photographers who value originality. And that's us.
The best way we can describe our work is artistic journalism. Authentic meets creative. We are a married photo duo who both began our careers as news photographers. Our approach is to get out of the way, and capture what unfolds. Observing people, telling their stories, and anticipating moments is in our muscle memory. Combined, we have more than three decades of experience as photojournalists, shooting and picture editing for publications and non-profits small and large.
So now what? You're planning a wedding, and we realize this is but one stop on that completely crazy journey. This is the fun part. We hope you’ll take a peek around some our favorites, there's much to see!

Our Favorite Vendor
The Happy Couple (Joe and Kayte) were incredibly easy to work with. From the time we started looking for photographers until delivery of the final photos, we were struck by the ease of the entire process. Initially, my wife and I video-chatted with Joe and were impressed by how kind and knowledgeable he was. He walked us through expectations for a wedding of our size while also taking the time to get to know us as a couple. The conversation made such an impression on us because other photographers that we had spoken to had not been nearly as personable and professional.Sent on 12/30/2019
Right before the wedding, we spoke with Joe about how we envisioned our wedding unfolding. He was so helpful in shaping our day, helping us zero in on the flow of the day and the exact kind of portraits/candids that we wanted captured. And, on the actual wedding day, Joe and Kayte took excellent pictures without being at all intrusive. Looking at some of our pictures, there are moments captured that we’ll treasure forever, and my wife and I don’t at all remember Joe or Kayte being in our vicinity.
The photos from our wedding have been our absolute favorite keepsake. Sharing them with our family and friends has allowed us to relive the best day of our lives. We could not have asked for a better experience with photographers. The Happy Couple have our highest recommendation

Joe and Katye perfectly captured our wedding day!
We love Joe and Katye Brier! When my husband and I started planning our wedding, we decided our must have was an amazing photography team - with two photographers. Joe and Katye are this team! We met Joe nearly two years ago when we were planning our September 2019 wedding in Boston. We were impressed with his work and loved the vibrant colors and unique detailed shots his portfolio included.Sent on 11/24/2019
We were in a bit of a unique situation because we were living abroad, but planning our wedding for Boston. Joe was extremely flexible, worked around our schedule, and worked around the time difference. We had our engagement photos in Boston in July 2018 and fell in love with his work all over again. Joe is great to work with, he's funny, kind, and patient. We couldn't wait to see what he could do at our wedding.
Fast forward to September 2019, Joe worked out all the timeline details with us to ensure the wedding day ran smoothly, and even threw in some buffer time in case something ran long. Joe and his wife Katye ran around seamlessly for 8 hours capturing our perfect day. From the detailed shots of our rings, vow books, decorations and attire, to the portraits in the Garden and everything in between, Joe and Katye did an outstanding job.
We received a sneak peek shortly after the wedding and were instantly in love and relived our perfect day. When we received the full portfolio - all in color and in black and white - we were blown away. The pictures are incredible! We've already recommended the Happy Couple to our friends and plan to use them for future life events. Thank you, Joe and Katye!

The best photographers
Joe and Katye are simply the best. They were a pleasure to work with from the first phone call. We are so pleased with our wedding photos. We relive the day every time we look at them!Sent on 11/09/2019
Katye and Joe's backgrounds in photojournalism really drew me in. It was important to me that our photographer capture all of the special moments of the day that might otherwise go unnoticed or forgotten. I also wanted real, timeless photos that didn't rely on post-processing or Instagram-like enhancements. Katye and Joe delivered beautifully on both fronts. We will always cherish the special shots of us as a couple, as well as all of the magical candids of our family and friends.
Joe and Katye also capture beautiful portraits and were very skilled at corralling our large families and wedding party to quickly and painlessly capture these more traditional shots. Much appreciated by all!
Most importantly, Joe and Katye are fun and easy to work with. Selecting a photographer means choosing the people who you will spend much of your wedding day with... and the people who will ensure that your memories are preserved for years to come. We couldn't have been more pleased with The Happy Couple Photography and would highly recommend them to anyone!
