Whitney Browne

Whitney Browne started working with Christopher Duggan Photography in 2011. She trained for years with legendary dance photographer Tom Carvaglia, and photographs movement and performance as well as weddings. Her work has an emphasis on documentation.

She worked on a long-term project with Paul Taylor Dance, and her photos have been published in The New York Times, Huffington Post, Dance Magazine, and New York Magazine. Whitney is excellent at putting couples at ease in front of the camera and has an eye for fixing that stray hair as well as capturing a quiet, private moment.

“Whitney truly brings a Brooklyn artist vibe to your wedding day. She’s got a real knack for making unique portraits with people and has an eye for photojournalism.” – Christopher
