Chateau Briand is one of our favorite places to photograph weddings.  They are located at 440 Old Country Rd, Carle Place, NY 11514. 


They have beautiful grounds that allow us to create modern and unique wedding photographs.  We love photographing their beautiful waterfall and their Miami night club like interior allows our creativity to flow and make fun and creative wedding photographs for our newlyweds to enjoy for a lifetime.  


We pride ourselves in providing a diverse selection of images.  We believe you need all types of styles of photos in your wedding album. Such as creative detail photos of your engagement ring, wedding bands, wedding dress and bridal bouquet.  

Being creative and capturing the moment is why most of us became Long Island Wedding Photographers.  Looking for different ways to tell your story is what drives us, it pushes us to always be better.  I believe that is what makes us Long Islands Best Wedding Photographers.  


Lets take a virtual tour of this beautiful location.  When we photograph a wedding here, we typically like to start in the front of the venue.  They have a beautiful entrance way lined with trees.  We typically like to shoot only the bride and groom here.


We then move into Chateau Briand, the main entrance of has a Miami night club feel. They have really nice art deco chairs that we like to use to create modern images of the bride and groom. They have a beautiful blue ceiling that, when photographed in the right direction can really make a wedding photo pop off the screen.  I love using the spiral stair case for first looks.  


The good thing about Chateau Briand Caterers is that the bridal suits are so big that they double as photo studios.  We can do formal family photos, silly and fun bridal party photos right in the bridal suite.  


One of our favorite places to photograph at this particular Long Island Catering Hall is their ceremony / out door cocktail hour area.  They have a nice arch way with hanging white flower balls that make for timeless wedding photos.  Also a huge plus is when having your ceremony here, the sun sets right over your heads which gives the bride and groom a stunning hair light that makes my little photographer heart happy! 


Each reception room is themed very alike, but each has their own slight tweaks. Each room has room lighting, which is essential for good reception photos.  When your venue does not have what is traditionally called "up lighting" your dancing photos have no pop to them, the background is just black.  But since you have up lighting in each reception room, your entrances, first dance, parent dances and cake cutting photos will all have a pop of color in the background giving life to your indoor reception photos.  


Now, on to one of my favorite parts of any wedding day at Chateau Briand Cateres. NIGHT TIME PHOTOS!  We always ask the bride and groom in our finals appointment if they would like night time photos.  99% of the time, they have booked this venue FOR the night time photos, and here is why.  


The front of Chateau Briand is one of, if not THE best location for creative night time photos.  We love to use their beautiful waterfall for a number of interesting and unique images.  The grand entrance is also something that makes for a spectacular shot.
