My husband and I got married on August 20th at the Mountain Top Inn and Resort in Vermont. One of our first vendors we booked was our photography with A Moment In Time Photographs. From the reviews, to the albums on their website and ultimately the first telephone conversation we had with Brandon, we knew AMIT was right for us. When we finally met Brandon, he lived up to our expectations and more! We only hired Brandon for our wedding day and he was with us for 10 hours! Brandon was very busy to say the least, but that did not hinder the quality of his work. He arrived early and even stayed a little late to make sure he captured all of the "moments" we requested. He was so personable and made us feel like we were a celebrity couple. He was super flexible with us, and literally did not stop snapping pictures throughout the entire day and evening. We were completed floored by our photos when we were sent our finished product, and we can most certainly say that hiring AMIT to do our wedding photography was worth every single penny. My husband and I highly recommend AMIT for any wedding that is within their limits of travel. Trust us when we say that you will not be disappointed! Thank you again Brandon!!!
Wedding photos were one of my top 3 priorities when it came to planning. To say we got lucky with Brandon and Mel is an understatement. They were everything we had hoped for. Not only was Brandon quick to respond to every email and phone call (despite being a new dad!), they listened to what we wanted, made the whole experience FUN, and cost way less than they should! Not only were they totally personable, their photos are awesome. Our golden hour shoot could be found on the cover of a magazine! AND they captured some of the most FABULOUS candid photos during our ceremony that really make you feel like you're still there. Brandon and Mel were a pleasure to work with in every aspect. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone considering hiring them!
Beautifully captured day!Reviewed on 5/16/2015 jessica f
Working with Brandon was epic! We had a last minute/small wedding in a historic home with just immediate family and a couple of close friends. Brandon was able to capture our intimate geeky gathering while being unobtrusive,fun and professional. With only 20 people including us on the guest list and things being as wedding are a bit discombobulated it was a blessing to have Brandons' professional ease capturing our day. He was everywhere we didn't know we needed him to be, and looking back on his images we are so glad he had an eye to capture things we wouldn't have thought of or even seen. The morning of the wedding we had a perfect snow flurry to cover up springs mud and Brandon was adventurous and energetic to get out in the snow and ice to take some really stunning and enjoyable shots. The photos taken outside were immediately following the ceremony and it was a very special time for Justin and I to regroup and let it all sink in. Brandon very easily directed us when we didn't know what to do and also captured sweet candid moments of us as our goofy selves. Following the wedding Brandon posted a few shots at a time as sneak peaks and each time a new image was posted we couldn't believe it was us! The images were stunning and he somehow made us look like naturals! Now the difficult part is trying to figure out where to hang them all because we can't just pick a few! Thank you Brandon for bringing the perfect energy to our day and giving us beautiful photographs to remember each moment of it. Jess and Justin
I'm so glad that I found A Moment in Time Photographs on these wedding planning sites! As a photographer, wedding photographs were a top priority of mine. I knew the style that I wanted, but the photographer needed to also be the right fit. I planned my fall Maine wedding from NC, so great communication was vital. Brandon was awesome. He has a great personality, was very responsive and thorough during the planning process, and was present and helpful on my wedding day! He kept right to the schedule, while getting all of the shots that we wanted. He was VERY patient with my family... (which says a lot haha), but also rolled with the punches when new ideas came up on the spot. My images are gorgeous. I can't thank Brandon enough.
I really can’t speak highly enough about experience working with Brandon. We booked him for our wedding in Maine and from the beginning, he was incredibly responsive and easy to work with. Not surprisingly, when we met him on our wedding day he was so friendly and made everyone laugh and feel at ease(including me, who usually feels awkward in photos). He had so many great ideas for photos and also made sure to get all of the shots with particular family/friends we had requested. We had an “under the stars” theme for our wedding and Brandon got a long exposure shot of us with the night sky in the background., which was AWESOME. After the wedding, Brandon sent us our photos even faster the we expected, and we couldn’t be happier. My husband was showing the photos to a coworker and her response was “I’ve never seen a wedding where every single photo is amazing.” I echo her thoughts exactly, and would recommend Brandon to anyone I know who is getting married. Truly one of the best choices I made for my wedding…other than choosing my husband of course!;)
While planning my recent wedding, I searched and searched for a highly recommended photographer... I was planning my wedding from out of state which made the process even more challenging. I stumbled upon A Moment In Time Photographs and couldn't be more pleased! Brandon did an excellent job with our photos and was fun to be around! Every photo felt natural and he captured both my venue and wedding atmosphere perfectly. I am so pleased and even though we have just received our "sneak peek", I look forward to seeing the rest of the photos! Thank you for capturing those beautiful moments so I can relive that special day for years to come!
When it came time to plan our wedding, my wife and I knew how important a great photographer is. It was the very first vendor we started looking for and immediately Brandon's name came up. We saw “A Moment in Time Photographs” on multiple sites and all the reviews were remarkable. We looked over the public albums and knew he was going to be our top choice. After a few phone calls and meetings we had hammered down the details and booked him for our July wedding. We could not be happier with the service and how professional Brandon was. He was courteous and kind and went out of his way to get the perfect shot. He didn’t even mind getting a little sandy and wet down by the beach! The day of went flawlessly and he captured every single moment of it. It truly was the perfect day and you can see that for yourself in the work he has done. We could not recommend him more, if you are unsure just take a look for yourself and I am sure you will be impressed.
Brandon was a fantastic photographer. He was professional and friendly and made sure we had nothing to worry about! He strikes the perfect balance of always being close by when you want him to get a particular shot, but not making you feel like there's always a camera around. He's also really good a directing two people who are awkward in front of a camera for the more formal, posed shots. The finished product is beautiful. Everyone loves the photos and I'm so happy to have had Brandon be a part of the day. You should probably just hire him now.
Brandon was a pleasure to work with. He was full of suggestions and was extremely friendly and easy- going. His calming demeanor was a sigh of relief on what can be a very stressful day! We are very pleased with our package :)
"We had a great time taking pictures with Brandon. My fiance and I loved that Brandon didn't make us do cheesy poses and how he helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Would definitely recommend to any couple that wants pictures that look natural, yet professional!"
Brandon did a wonderful job photographing our wedding this fall. He was responsive and easy to work with leading up to the day and very present and professional on the day of. His photos were very high quality and he captured some great moments. I felt he could have added a little more variation to some of our bride/groom/wedding party/family portraits, we got married near the mountains in VT and I don't feel he utilized that backdrop as much as he could have, but his pictures still came out gorgeous. He's also very affordable!
What can we say? Our time spent with Brandon and Mel on the day of our wedding was unforgettable! We felt completely at ease. We were confident from the start that they would capture every important moment! Everything just felt so natural with them! If we ever need future photos for life's greatest moments we wouldn't hesitate to contact Brandon and Mel again! You won't be disappointed!
After a significant amount of searching and laughing at photographers who wanted unrealistic amounts of money for simple wedding photography, we stumbled upon Brandon and A Moment in Time Photography. We emailed and Brandon got back to us exceedingly fast. He was professional and friendly and after a phone interview, was the obvious choice for Danielle and I. We talked a few more times on the phone, which let Brandon get a better look at who we were and what we wanted. His inquiries really let Danielle and I know that we were in good hands. Finally, the big day comes around. Brandon arrived early to take photographs of the venue and the location. He managed to get all of that done and make it up to Danielle's room as she was getting ready. The photos of her prior to the wedding are breath-taking. The photos of the ceremony were also incredible. Brandon worked his way around the ceremony without being in the way. His skill as a photographer is incredible, but his ability to be almost invisible is equally impressive. After the ceremony, Brandon spent time with us and our families, hi patience was admirable. He also has a great sense of humor and an eye for proper positioning using the natural background to enhance the photos. The best photos came at the reception, where Brandon was constantly moving and getting incredible shots of the big moments and the best dancing photos I've seen. I can't say enough about Brandon and a Moment in Time. He did an incredible job capturing every moment. His personality makes him easy to work with and his ability to be in the right place at the right time can't be undervalued. If you are looking for a photographer who is incredibly well-rounded and reasonably priced, I highly recommend Brandon and a Moment in Time Photography.
My fiance and I are not comfortable having our photographs taken but Brandon made it so easy for us! We absolutely loved our engagement shoot and we cannot wait for our wedding. Our photos came out amazing :)
Brandon immediatly made us feel comfortable and relaxed. It was a fun, easy going session and it was clear he was taking careful consideration to make sure he got some awesome shots! We look forward to working with A Moment In Time Photographs on our upcoming wedding day!
Loved working with Brandon from a moment in time photography! He was extremely professional, easy to work with, and reasonably priced. He remembered everything I requested in my photos after only two phone conversations. My wedding photos are stunning and original and not cheezy I was really impressed by how stealth Brandon was during the reception I almost forgot he was there! Highly recommend 😊
Brandon and Mel were wonderful to work with! They gave great direction for photos when required, but also stayed out of the way and captured all of the candid special moments. They kept me calm while it looked like it was going to rain throughout our entire wedding (it didn't!), and in the end the photos were incredibly gorgeous. I would highly recommend their service.
I was lucky enough to stumble upon A Moment in Time Photographs when Brandon covered my friend's wedding about a year prior to my wedding date. I was already looking for a photographer for my wedding and having trouble finding someone with a portfolio I liked--- after seeing her wedding photos I was instantly sold and reached out to Brandon for a quote. He was incredibly professional and speedy-- he got back to me within 24 hours of my original inquiry and was always flexible and available for phone calls to discuss different aspects of coverage that we wanted. On our wedding day, he was able to help us pose for photos and helped to relieve some of our anxiety about being awkward-- neither one of us is very comfortable but he made it fun. I knew our photos would be good based on the sneak peeks posted on social media but the full set of proofs we received completely exceeded all my expectations. Along with our posed photos, we also received a beautiful set of candid photos of both ourselves and our guests that really captured the best moments of our wedding. I could not be happier!
Brandon is amazing! He's nice and flexible and he doesn't do a lot of posing!
Brandon was great!Reviewed on 6/28/2015 Andrew G
Brandon was extremely easy to work with. He blended right into the day, and the made the experience stress-free and relaxed. We were very pleased with how the photos came out, especially ones that had difficult lighting and shadow as the sun set. We would recommend him and would use him again given the chance!
