Aug 12, 2022 03:03PM ● By Tricia Hoadley

Historic Odessa will soon unveil its fall exhibition, “Love Stories: Photos by Brittany Lauren,” which is on display from Aug. 30 to Oct. 30. The exhibit of intimate portraits of couples in love by the Milford, Del. photographer will be on display in the Historic Odessa Visitor’s Center Gallery.

According to Brittany Lauren, photographing couples in love is what sets her soul on fire. The young and talented photographer has become well known for her creative photography compositions of engagements and weddings in only a few short years.

A photographer’s reception will take place on Thursday, September 15, from 6 to 8 p.m. The public is invited to meet and greet the photographer that day, and she will be on hand to take questions. The reception is free to Historic Odessa Foundation members, invited guests, and the public.

Light refreshments will be served. For reservations, contact Jennifer Cabell Kostik at 302-378-4119, or [email protected].

For more information about the exhibition Love Stories, as well as the Historic Odessa Foundation’s 2022 season tours, special exhibits, events, and Living History Education Program, visit, or call 302-378-4119.

About the Historic Odessa Foundation

Established in 2005, the Historic Odessa Foundation owns and operates The Historic Houses of Odessa, a 72-acre enclave of 18th and 19th century structures located in the town of Odessa, just two miles from DE 1 and just off U.S. Route 13 in southern New Castle County, Del. The historic buildings and gardens along with a well-documented collection of more than 7000 objects and furnishings offer a unique picture of Delaware’s colonial period in a rural village that played a vital part in America’s commercial history. The town of Odessa, originally known as Cantwell’s Bridge, has retained much of its 18th century charm and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and home to a National Historic Landmark, and two National Park Service Network to Freedom sites.
