About Us

Welcome to Briar Creek Photography!  We are a family-owned business providing still images and video of the special events in your life - weddings, bat and bar mitzvahs, anniversaries and birthdays, graduations and dances, sports teams and school activities....any celebration or event that is meaningful to you.  Our favorite photo ops focus on relationships featuring family members who have known one another for years, the documentation of the beginnings of new families and friends at weddings, and everything in between.  We also photograph corporate events, golf tournaments and charity auctions. Portrait photography naturally flowed from meeting so many people through our event and sports league photography! 


Although Georgi's interest in photography began when she was a child, Briar Creek Photography arose after Georgi "retired" from being a middle school yearbook adviser, where she honed her photography skills covering the schools' sports and educational events. Our first clients were the Annandale North Springfield Little League, Annandale Youth Lacrosse and the Wakefield Chapel Wahoos swim team.  Parents of these community athletes began to ask Georgi to photograph their families' weddings and other special events, as well as additional activities in which their children participated. Since 2007, Briar Creek Photography has steadly grown throughout northern Virginia, just outside Washington, DC.


Jim's grandfather introduced him to filmmaking years ago....which eventually led to Jim providing videography for our children's activities - sports, band and theatre.  Meeting families through these activities led to them asking him to videotape their special events.  Jim's skills include not only videotaping, but also editing the footage into a final product including music, video and BCP images.  He also offers documentary montages shown at rehearsal dinners, bat or bar mitzvahs and birthday or retirement celebrations. These montages include your photos with music, creating a 10-15 minute edited video featuring your honoree of the moment.


We would love to meet with you so that you may determine whether Briar Creek Photography is the best match for your photography/videography needs. We hope we are!


You can learn specifics of our services by selecting the Services tab at the bottom of the BCP home page. If you have any questions, please email us at briarcreekphoto@aol.com or call Georgi at 571-233-0377.  We look forward to meeting you!
