Lianne Milton is an editorial and documentary photographer based in Northern Viriginia - Washington, DC and Rio de Janiero, Brazil. She photographs weddings with a fine art documentary approach.
Photographic storytelling is the art of conveying stories. With 14 years experience as a photojournalist, I have had the priviledge to photograph important social and political stories for international publications. I have also had the immense honor to photograph weddings by crafting a visual story of your wedding day that captures intimate and authentic moments. My approach is non-intrusive and my style is similar to my documentary work. I strive to make beautiful photographs that depict the energy, joy & romance of your wedding day.
I photograph with both 35mm digital and 6x6 medium format film. Your photographs are fine art because you allow me to stay true to my creative vision to document one of the most celebrated days of your life. I am continuously inspired by my clients, who are creative, down to earth, and spontaneous at heart.
My wedding work has taken me throughout beautiful Northern California, where I was born and raised, including San Francisco/Bay Area, Napa and Sonoma, the foothills of the Santa Cruz mountains, and Halfmoon Bay. I've also traveled for weddings to coastal New England, New York, Washington, Wisconsin, central Mexico, and Thailand.
I often divide my time between the DC metropolitan area and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where I met, fell in love and married my husband, Fábio, who is a documentary filmmaker. As a photojournalist, I have photographed for international publications such as The Washington Post, Businessweek, Le Monde M magazine, New York Times, and US News & World Report; for many travel magazines, such as Delta, Iberia, KLM, American and United airline magazines, as well as Conde Nast Traveller, National Geographic Traveller, and Smithsonian Journeys. I also photograph for international NGOs, such as ActionAid, Open Society Foundations, Smile Train, UNICEF and UN Women.
During our off time, you can find us surfing and swimming the coast of Rio de Janeiro or enjoying family time in Middleburg, VA.
