Briana was so amazing to work with. I'm so grateful she has all wedding couples do an engagement shoot first. Neither my husband or I were very comfortable in front of a camera, but she made the experience fun and made us feel confident and beautiful. By the wedding day we were... Read More nervous about everything except photos. It was over 100 degrees and I was stressing and freaking out about everything. Briana did not miss a beat. She had us where we needed to be and still gave us time to enjoy the wedding with our guests. Working with her you will get a director, an artist, and a friend.

Briana shot my wedding a couple weeks ago. My husband and I could not be happier that she was our photographer! Not only is she an extremely talented photographer, but she is incredibly kind and sweet. She was very easy and enjoyable to work with. Briana handled the day... Read More professionally and calmly, even when trying to wrangle 9 bridesmaids or 25+ family members. I was very impressed. My husband and I were blown away when we saw some sneak peek photos of the wedding day. The photos are all gorgeous! I spent the whole day looking at the photos over and over again. The lighting, posing, and overall look of the photos are beautiful. Once again, Briana is VERY skilled at what she does. I would not hesitate to recommend Briana to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. She is awesome!

Briana is fabulous! We hired her for our engagement shoot. From beginning to end it was great working with Briana. She is thoughtful and goes out of her way to make sure that your pictures turn out wonderful. During the shoot, she was especially good at capturing all the little...

We loved all of the pictures she took. There were so many great choices of pictures that it was hard to choose which ones to order. We will definitely be using her in the future for capturing all of our special moments. Thanks Briana! You are the best!

Where do I even begin?? My husband and I could not be more pleased with our decision to hire Briana. After meeting her for the first time, we knew without a doubt that we wanted to work with her. She is not only extremely talented, but she is one of the sweetest people we've... Read More ever met. She is genuine, personable, easy to talk to and work with, reliable, kindhearted, and truly loves what she does. We were fortunate to have her do both our engagement and wedding photos and I can honestly say they are perfect; she captured the magic from both events and in doing so, gave us memories that we can relive and cherish forever. She goes above and beyond to meet your needs and make your experience a special one. Briana far exceeded our expectations and we will absolutely hire her again in the future. We look forward to sharing many more special life events with her :) We highly recommend Briana and promise you won't be disappointed!

Briana shot our engagement photos earlier this summer and our wedding in August. The photos left my husband, family, friends and I speechless. I honestly can't get over how amazing every picture turned out. I love how she pays attention and captures every single detail, from a...

You are so BLESSED with an amazing talent, thank you for working with us.

Briana is AMAZING!!! My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed working with her, every step of the way! Our engagement pictures were gorgeous, and our wedding pics, well, let's just say I have looked through them every single day since we got them, and I cannot get enough! Briana... Read More is so talented and has such a great eye for capturing the true magic and essence of each moment. We have gotten so many compliments on the great quality of our pictures! She does her research on the locations and knows exactly what she's doing with lighting, angles, and positions. She also listens carefully to what you want and makes expert suggestions when you're not sure of something. We both whole-heartedly recommend Briana to anyone and everyone. She is professional, hard-working, prompt in her production time, very detail-oriented, and perhaps most importantly, she is a JOY to work with. So sweet, easy to laugh, and comfortable to be around. We adore Briana and can't wait to hire her again (for future family shots)! We are beyond thankful for Briana's hard work and the gift she has given us--to be able to relive the happiest day of our lives over and over again. Briana is the BEST!

My fiancé and I absolutely loved working with Briana. Though the we got a forecast of rain for the day we scheduled our engagement photos, my fiancé was unable to get another Saturday off work for a few months. Instead of canceling, Briana told us to bring an umbrella, which... Read More ended up being the best prop for our photos! We had an adventure in the rain and were all soaked by the end, but our pictures are stunning thanks to Briana! We absolutely adore them and get compliments on them constantly. Briana was wonderful to work with and we couldnt be happier.

Briana is an AMAZING photographer. She is extremely easy to work with and makes you feel comfortable throughout the entire process.

Briana is absolutely amazing! She is very professional and reasonable. Briana goes above and beyond to capture all of the details. My husband and I used Briana for our engagement photos as well as our wedding. We were not too comfortable in front of the camera, but she put us at... Read More ease and made it really easy. She finds the perfect locations and the best lighting for your shots. SHE IS PHENOMENAL . I highly recommend her to anyone in the bay area looking for photos ( family, maternity, engagement and wedding). Briana is very easy to get a hold of and responds quickly as well. For me, that was one of the best parts because so many times I reached out to vendors and they took forever to respond. Briana is simply amazing! You will not be disappointed ( PROMISE).

We were so happy with our engagement pictures that Briana did!

We had so many compliments on our pictures from our friends and family.... Read More Briana was so encouraging throughout the shoot and we had so much with her! She was very flexible scheduling our shoot, choosing our location, and was very responsive to all of my e-mails. I would recommend Briana to any bride!

Personable, professional and amazingly talented. Having excellent photos at our wedding was very important to me, and Briana not only met but exceeded my (and my family's) expectations. She not only captured some incredible moments, but she was also an absolute joy to work with.... Read More Everybody at the wedding, from the wedding party to other vendors, ranted and raved about how wonderful it was to have Briana alongside for the day. I met Briana at a wedding fair, and despite how overwhelmed I felt with the sheer number of vendors at the fair, Briana won me over. Leading up to our engagement session and wedding day, Briana was proactive yet patient as we juggled schedules and flip flopped on small but important photo-related decisions. She had never been to our venue before - at the Stanford Memorial Church - so she even made a special trip there to make sure she was fully prepared for the day. The day of the wedding, our wedding party had a blast taking photos with Briana, and post-wedding, Briana's impeccable follow through has carried forward as we finalize our album and look over the proofs. I would hire Briana again in a heartbeat and have already recommended her to several other brides.

Amazing Amazing Amazing!! I really can't say enough times how awesome Briana was on my wedding day. She captured all of the moments (and then some) I wanted and the photos were STUNNING. She immediately took charge and started snapping away while my bridesmaids and I were... Read More getting ready which was super helpful. It felt like one less thing to worry about so I could enjoy the morning of my wedding. She was also extremely prompt about getting the photos back to us. Briana is professional and so easy to work with. If that wasn't enough, her photos are absolutely beautiful. I will definitely be hiring her again for family portraits!

I met Briana through my best friend, and ironically, Briana was there when my husband proposed to me! My best friend jokingly said oh well good thing Briana was at the engagement to take pictures because she’s a wedding photographer! Little did I know when I researched her, she... Read More was a phenomenal photographer! She has an amazing talent for capturing light, nature, and the real essence of her subject matter. We purchased package C and with that we got an engagement session as well as the wedding. My fiancé (at the time) and I weren’t used to taking professional photos together but she helped us feel so comfortable, and the photos turned out amazing. She even helped research where we could go and even bring our dogs (who weren’t acting on their best behavior that day…)! Seeing what she did with our engagement shoot only made me more excited to see what she would do at the wedding. And we surely weren’t disappointed. She picked up so many details; details that I wasn’t even aware existed at our wedding! I am highly impressed with all aspects of working with Briana, in addition to her amazing vision she is very responsive and professional. My husband, friends and family are all very impressed with her work.

I would HIGHLY recommend Briana as a wedding photographer!

My husband Jason and I hired Briana for our wedding in November this year. She was such a pleasure to work with and has an amazing talent! Not only were the engagement photos apart of her very reasonable package deal, but she captured Jason and I perfectly! I was so worried...
