There are so many amazing things that I could say about Brian. It is evident that he has an eye for what he does, but the fact that he takes it to the next level is what sets him apart from the rest. Brian brings it to that next level by becoming a part of your family on that... Read More day. He will never be just a photographer to us. He is a lifelong friend. The way he captured our special day was unreal. We will hold these pictures close to us for the years to come. Brian is genuine, kind, and incredibly talented. I have nothing but great things to say about him.

Brian is great because he is really skilled but, more importantly, invested in becoming a part of your story rather than just another line item on the final wedding bill. He's relatable and will meet you wherever you are.

I first met Brian at the wedding of a mutual friend. Even though we had just met, I felt like I had known him for years. His inviting personality and (especially) his love for Lord of the Rings and Star Wars made us instantly click as friends. He was one of the first people I... Read More told about my desire to propose to Abigail. When that day came, I knew for certain that I wanted him there to document that special moment. His ability to capture such memorable moments behind the lens of a camera is truly incredible. So when it came time to choose a wedding photographer, the decision to have Brian document such a sacred day was the easiest part of planning our wedding. Brian has such a gift to capture raw, meaningful, and breathtaking moments behind a camera lens, that much is obvious (just look at any of his work). But what makes Brian so incredibly special is his commitment to building a personal relationship with you, whether you are a client or a friend-of-a-friend at a wedding. He shows the love of Christ through every aspect of what he does and he’ll light up the dance floor at your wedding, too. We are honored to know him and call him not only our photographer, but a great friend. We can’t wait to have Brian there with us to capture and share in more special moments to come.

Brian was simply amazing. He got to know my wife and I--our likes and dislikes, our movie and music taste, etc. it was more like meeting with a friend than a professional photographer. His work was incredible. He spent our entire wedding day all over the place taking pictures.... Read More Get the pictures, it felt like he had 20 different helpers there with him.

Brian did our engagement photos and our wedding day and his work was nothing short of perfection. He spent hours with us exploring and preparing for the best shots that captured our love for each other during our engagement shoot. We had so much fun and he was even willing to...

We were so excited to get them back and to relive every moment of our day. I personally love all of the in between photos Brian captured and all the small real moments that will help us remember the day forever. Brian is an incredible photographer but an even better friend! We absolutely love the work he puts out and can't wait to start our family and hire him for a lifestyle shoot!

If you have looked at Brian's Instagram account, then you know he is one heck of a talented photographer, but not only that, he is also one of the best people I know. It was such an honor to work with him and bring him into our relationship to capture one of the biggest moments... Read More of our lives. I was a little nervous about being photographed through all of this because I'm not a model and I didn't want anything to look too staged or uncomfortable. I was floored when I saw the finished images and loved how he was able to capture our true selves and the nature of our relationship. Not only is he phenomenal with lighting, (Trust me!! He made the grey skies on my wedding day, look beautiful in pictures) but he is hilarious as well and you will have full belly laughs by the end of the experience. It was by far one of the best and most personable experiences I have had working with a photographer.

Wow. I really don't have the right words to describe how happy I was with my wedding photos. They were everything I wanted and more. Brian was very calm and efficient the day of the wedding.

My heart’s conviction is to be involved in the best ways possible and to be there for when things are truly real in someone’s life. My passion for story telling and for being inclusive stems from the idea that everyone could use a good friend. For a day, for a lifetime, and for everything in-between. I believe in the unending and unconditional love of Christ, movie marathons, the support of family and friends, good food, The Office, phone free meals with friends, laughing so hard your sides hurt, and in a fresh and delicious cup of coffee every single morning.
