I literally cannot say enough positive things about Brett. Not only is she an extremely talented photographer, but she is also SO MUCH FUN to work with! :D
The photos that we received from Brett weeks after our wedding were better than we coul...

I can't wait to have another reason to hire her. If you are looking for a photographer, look no further!

Brett was a dream to work with! Our Wedding Planner recommended Brett to us and I knew right off the bat from just our phone interview that she would be a perfect match for us! Boy, was I right! My now Husband and I are somewhat awkward when it...
comes to taking professional photos but Brett made us feel so comfortable & was hyping us up the whole time while doing so and it felt like we were just hanging out with one of our friends. Brett is so talented in her craft and her vision and style are so clean & fresh. We hired her for both our engagement and wedding photos. Do yourself a favor and hire Brett for all your photography needs. She is absolutely the BEST!!!

We chose Brett as our wedding photographer after she came highly recommended from our good friends. And we're so happy we did because she exceeded all of our expectations!
From the beginning, Brett was always quick to respond to emails and ans...
wer all of our questions. We were also able to do an engagement session with her which helped us to get more comfortable in front of the camera before the big day.
On our wedding day, Brett and her assistant were prompt, professional and a whole lot of fun! They made us and our entire wedding party feel so comfortable and they captured the whole day perfectly. It was also super helpful that Brett scoped out the area beforehand to choose the best photo spots. :)
After the wedding, Brett sent us some sneak peeks the very next day and we received the full album in about 6 weeks. The photos are beautiful and timeless - you can seriously feel all the happiness and love by just looking at them.
We are so glad we chose Brett to capture the moments we will look back on for the rest of our lives. We highly recommend her to anyone who is a looking for a photographer that is easy to work with and makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. Brett's work is amazing and she is truly the best!

Brett was our absolute first and only choice when we decided to do a honeymoon session at Korakia Pensione in Palm Springs! From the first conversation, I knew that Brett was going to be so much fun to work with and we instantly were so excited...
for our honeymoon session with her! Throughout all the planning and rescheduling, Brett was incredibly helpful and helped connect us with other vendors and her favorite Palm Springs spots.
On the day of the shoot, she not only picked up my bouquet and brought it with her to help us out; but she made us feel so good and we had so much fun! As a wedding planner, I work with a ton of photographers and believe when I say that when working with Brett you will not only have an amazing time during the shoot as she cheers you on; but you'll also have gorgeous and authentic images to enjoy for years to come!

Stop looking and just hire Brett. Because there is no better photographer she literally is the best, the most talented, and on top of it all an amazing human being.
We found Brett through our venue from the preferred vendor list and upon con...
tacting her from an initial phone call we knew right away she would be the one. And then as we flip through some of her work we knew it was a done deal.
For our engagement shoot my husband and I had this crazy idea with these balloons to spell our wedding date for our save the dates now in hindsight it was pretty silly to think it would work given we were outside in the mountains in Malibu, but Brett worked with us regardless and somehow even still got some great shots. Her sweet and funny personality made my us feel so comfortable during the shoot our photos came out so amazing we couldn’t even believe it was us!
Between our engagement shoot and wedding it was about almost a year gap and Brett stayed contact with us whether it was via social or email. She did her homework leading up to the wedding scoping out locations and even coming earlier to stay ahead of schedule. Her positive energy made us and the wedding party feel so great and comfortable the pictures came out amazing. The next morning when we woke up Brett already had some sneak peeks for us!
Overall Brett was hands down one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. I can’t say enough good things just HIRE HER and you won’t regret it!

I want to just start by saying we found Brett because she commented on my Instagram engagement announcement that she loved my ring (it was a llama ring) my real ring hadn’t been made yet lol. Once I clicked on her profile I knew that her style ...
would match mine and my husband personalities great. We are both very outgoing and playful with one another and when I looked at Brett’s photos I saw that this was the way many of the couples she photographed were. She is an absolutely joy to talk to, I’m a class A control freak and she answered EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY EMAILS. God bless her. I loved that Brett always arrives early to scoop out shoot locations, It made it so much easier on us because she knew exactly where the best places were. I loved working with Brett and I would recommend her to everybody. Thank you Brett for being such an amazing human being and capturing all of our incredible moments so beautifully.

alk. Not only were the pictures wonderful, but she made us (especially this nervous bride) feel so comfortable and confident during the shoot. She traveled up to Big Sur for our ceremony and spent two nights on the property. Having her as a guest at the wedding was such a pleasure, and it really feels like she is part of our family now. She was much more than just a photographer to me while I was planning this wedding, she helped with every aspect of preparation, from writing the timeline to sharing my anxiety and excitement. I could not be more grateful for her. The pictures she took were unbelievable. She truly captured the magic of our big day and the majesty of Bug Sur. I could not be happier with my photographs, and I am so grateful that they will always serve as the perfect reminder of our perfect day. When I recieved my sneak peeks only days after the wedding I cried hysterically because they were so perfect. I'm so thankful for Brett, her amazing talent, and her wonderful friendly and professional personality. If you want everyone's mouths to drop open when they see your wedding pictures, hire Brett! You will not regret it.

Brett is such a great photographer!!
My (now) Husband and I were initially going to elope at the courthouse in LA. However, as a last minute decision we decided to do change our plans and elope in Griffith Park. I contacted Brett about 1 week ...
before our planned elopement date and I was so happy she was available! She was very quick and responsive with all of her emails, we also chatted on the phone and discussed the elopement plans! She was very accommodating to all our requests and we could not have been happier! We also brought our new puppy to our elopement and Brett was the greatest at getting her attention and taking some really cute "family" photos of us! We spent about 1 hour after the elopement taking plenty of photos in Griffith Park with beautiful scenery. Brett directed us to make sure we got the best lightening & scenery in the background! The following morning (after the elopement) I already had an email from Brett with plenty of "sneak peak" photos that we shared with family & friends!

nique and really embraced all the colors, which we desperately wanted. Many photographers currently love a slight sepia tone, and when we expressed disinterest from that, as well as some poses that are frequently seen for weddings, she totally understood. She helped us all throughout the planning of the wedding (making a timeline is hard!) and during the day of (cake cutting is also surprisingly hard!). She was able to make sure we actually got to ENJOY our cocktail hour with our guests, as well as our reception. She was great at handling some of our more difficult guests as well--the ones that were tired, are disagreeable with other groups, or have other issues happening. Never once did she make anyone interact with someone who they don't like to interact with, and made sure to move quickly for those that couldn't handle pictures for long. She is continuously sweet and kind, and even when we felt awkward with posing, she made sure to keep us relaxed by making jokes to get us to be more natural. She really understood the feel of our wedding and what we were looking for. She was never intrusive, yet was able to capture so many magical moments at our wedding. She's so sweet, and you should contact her immediately.

I'm not sure where to begin.... Brett is truly an incredible person and photographer. My husband and I got married about a month ago (July 15, 2017) at Rancho Las Lomas and Brett was our photographer.
I originally found Brett via research on ...
numerous wedding websites and all of her reviews were incredible! I met with about 10 different photographers and she was the best and this is why:
- She truly took the time to get to know me and actually cared about what I hoped to accomplish (I wanted photos of our venue at night, two photographers, etc...)
- The very first time I met Brett, she took the time to draft a wedding timeline for me, so I knew what to expect on our big day
- I met Brett about 12 months before our wedding and she was able to provide guidance on other things I had to get done before the wedding
- Please note that the timeline she provided was "spot-on" and I ended up using her wedding timeline draft as a guide to help me plan other things
- She responded all of my questions QUICKLY!
- About 4 months before the wedding, I was nervous about not knowing how to pose and was extremely nervous about everything. I texted/emailed Brett and she immediately set up a call for us and she was able to give me some pointers and to be honest just hearing her voice and her pointers made me feel SO much better
- Brett took the time out of her busy schedule to check out our venue before the wedding to make sure she knew all of the great spots for photos! (She went above and beyond)
- Our wedding day - Brett was all smiles and her energy was contagious! I did not worry about a thing because she knew exactly what I wanted.
- Post Wedding- we immediately received preview photos and a few weeks later, I requested a few more previews so I can order thank you cards, and ONCE AGAIN Brett responded QUICKLY and did not hesitate to provide more photos.
Brett truly is the best photographer and the sweetest person ever.
Brett is certainly someone I would refer for all occasions. In fact, I can't wait to start having kids and have Brett take our family photos (wishful thinking).
She's incredible! So if you read this, don't think twice about it and call Brett. She is worth every penny! BEST DECISION!
Brett- if you read this: From the bottom of my heart, thank you!

ust walk along and bump into each other," "give her a big hug from behind," etc. and that natural feel really came through in our photos. Also, as we got more and more comfortable and started having some ideas for different poses, she was encouraging and game to try them out with us. We had both guidance, and room to express our personalities and be ourselves. It all felt very "us" :)
We brought a simple bouquet and balloons for props on our session and Brett did a great job guiding us on when to use which props for better shots. We were also on a bit of a tight schedule to print our images, and Brett was able to rush the final edits to us in about a week.
All in all we had a great experience with Loie Photography and highly recommend it for photos with a natural, romantic feel!
