Brittany is so talented at what she does! We booked the 4-hour wedding day package with her and couldn't be happier with her and her amazing work! She was friendly, professional, and absolutely everywhere at the wedding, getting shots I didn't even know she got! During the... Read More family & wedding party photos, the reception, and send-off, she wasn't afraid to retake a picture or ask us to rearrange or move in order to get the perfect shot. And she got so many AMAZING pictures! Her framing and editing is light, creative, and just pretty. She captured our wedding day, the people, the decor, the whole event, beautifully. Truly could not be happier! (AND her price was incredibly reasonable!)

We were so lucky to have Brittany for our big day! Not only does she have a great vision, we absolutely loved working with Brittany throughout the whole planning process. She even had the great idea for us to sneak away at sunset to get a few couple shots - they're my all-time... Read More favorite pictures of me and my husband!

I would highly recommend Inspired Life Photography for pictures! Brittney is so great to work with and goes above and beyond to make your wedding day stress free! I was very impressed with how much she was on her game and was adaptable to potential wedding day challenges!... Read More This tremendously helped my anxiety for the wedding day. I took engagement/bridal photos and was so impressed with the quality of images. She was so easy to book photography sessions and I feel like she always listened to what my vision was.

We were in love with Brittany's style from the moment we shot our engagement photos in December. Brittany was so easy to get along with and really helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. We knew after looking at the engagement pictures that we would LOVE the pictures... Read More she captured on our wedding day. Fast forward five months and Brittany was shooting our big day on 5/20/2017 at The Venue in downtown Asheville. Brittany was able to rally my huge wedding party and family members so that we could get so awesome shots before the ceremony. She even closed down an entire street in Asheville (by standing in the middle of it!) so we could get the perfect picture in front of our venue– talk about a photographer who will do anything for a great shot! Brittany made all of our guests feel comfortable and several people commented on the fact that she and our second photographer, Nick, were “all over the room and dance floor” snapping photos that night. She was so helpful, supportive, and fun that night - we even danced a little together on the dance floor! When Brittany sent us the gallery of our wedding pictures, we could tell her pictures truly capture moments of us having fun with our guests as well as plenty of moments we missed in person throughout the night! Brittany captured the perfect blend of portrait, posed photos and candid pictures from the night. She listened to our request for a more journalistic approach to capturing the night in photos – from the tiniest details in the décor to the expressions on guests’ faces during toasts. We are blown away by all of the pictures and our guests cannot get enough of all the photos she took throughout the night. I highly recommend Brittany for anyone looking for a photographer to shoot their wedding. She has an wonderful, outgoing personality and a keen eye for gorgeous shots - you won't regret it!

There are simply not enough thank yous to express our gratitude and love for Brittany and Inspired Life Photography. Once my hubby and I nailed down our date and location, Brittany was the first vendor we wanted to get booked and our only choice for photographer. Despite some... Read More unforeseen circumstances and weather that made our engagement photos a literal whirlwind, Brittany was organized, professional and absolutely my calming energy on that day. She made us both feel so relaxed, and the photos and Save the Dates she designed came out so beautiful - we got so many compliments! She checked up on me regularly to see if I needed anything throughout the wedding planning process and was hands down the most organized and quick to respond vendor we worked with. Payment and budgeting were so easy, and after the wedding, Brittany got us the sneak peeks and the edited photos so quickly, all while she had her sweet newborn baby at home. And the wedding photos: oh my gosh - I truly never could have imagined anything so beautiful! Inspired Life captured the perfect combination of candid moments and posed photos with our family and wedding party, all while managing to keep our large wedding party (15) and parents and grandparents organized and on schedule. Before our wedding, I never realized how much of what’s going on that you miss as the bride and groom. The day goes by so fast. I am so very grateful for the photos showing me my loved ones having a blast and witnessing the most special moment of my life: seeing how my husband and I looked at each other that day, my Dad tearing up during the ceremony, our grandparents dancing the night away, the smiles and tears during speeches and toasts. Those are the moments that can’t be replicated, and those are exactly what Inspired Life Photography captured for us. Although it’s been a few months since our wedding, not a single day has gone by that I haven’t scrolled through our photos in awe. Brittany and Inspired Life Photography did an absolutely incredible job, and we could never say thank you enough. We would recommend to any couple wanting the best day of their life captured in the most beautiful way possible <3

WOW!! THE MOST UNPROFESSIONAL vendor I've ever experienced. I feel so strongly about this I am writing this review as a member of the bridal party, and this is my first hand experience. As a former bride myself, I have written multiple reviews for vendors on wedding websites. I... Read More have to say this is my first time writing a negative review. The reason I take the time to do this is so other unsuspecting couples do not go through a similar ordeal. I was blown away by the lack of professionalism, incompetence and overall laziness of this photographer that I experienced FIRST HAND at the wedding. Do yourself a BIG FAVOR and find someone else. The hassle she has given the bride on the most important day of her life is mind blowing. After I saw her helping herself to food and leaving the second photographer to do ALL of the work for the majority of the day/evening, I then saw her taking a "break" and watching TV inside on a couch during the reception. This is not hearsay. I saw and experienced this with my own eyes throughout the day of the event. She came to the location completely unprepared as to where pictures would be taken and it was obvious to myself and the rest of the wedding party. She lacked "know-how" and spent little to no time posing us or setting us up for photos. Beyond this, she was rude to family members, and friends.... which I also saw first hand. She stood around most of the day, not giving direction for specific shots and even missed the bride and father of the bride's "first look." I know this to be FACT because I had to take these special photos myself with my own camera so it would be captured. To top it off, this photographer wrote a 3 page letter to the bride and groom BLAMING family and friends for all issues after the couple expressed their disappointment in her services. Again, I have read the letter myself and I am happy to post it or share it anytime with anyone, as it is FACT. She also used her pregnancy as an excuse in her letter. Being pregnant IS NO EXCUSE FOR RUDE!

Brittany was such a dream to work with! She shot both a boudoir shoot for me, as well as my wedding. She very clearly knows what she is doing, she is a great director of where to be and what to do. She also has a keen eye for details, really giving you direction on what to tweak... Read More for the best shot. She managed me and my husband, as well as our bridal party and huge families with ease. Her second shooter for the wedding was great as well. They both did a great job blending in to get the candids, and posing us when needed for some special shots. Her editing is superb, I never felt like she over did it, or we didn't recognize ourselves, but she certainly presented us the best versions of ourselves. Had a truly great experience working with her from start to finish. She also helped set up a photography timeline for me, which I felt like was above and beyond the call of duty.

A great job for our daughter's fall wedding! We booked Brit approx 10 months in advance and she laid out a timeline, pricing, expectations, etc in a professional manner and stayed true to all of her commitments. This made the planning process and budgeting for a wedding much... Read More easier! Not to mention the pics are great! Along the way she traveled for the engagement photos, the bridal portrait and even covered an engagement party. She got a large variety of photos and an easy digital gallery to order from and download to keep.

Brittany was our photographer for our Asheville wedding, and she was fabulous!! From the very beginning she was flexible with options and approach, easy to work with, and full of great ideas! We chose to just take pictures on the day of our wedding, so my husband and I took a... Read More leisurely stroll from the hotel to the wedding venue and took pictures along the way. She knew all the great places to stop, and perfectly timed the walk and pictures to arrive at the ceremony at the perfect time. She made our photographed journey to the ceremony a pleasant and fun experience! During the ceremony and reception, she did a terrific job taking pictures of our family and friends and I didn't have to even think about anything! She was pleasant to work with the entire time. After the wedding, I was very (very) slow with getting online to select my pictures for downloading and ordering prints. She was very patient with me to provide extensions of time until I could get all the pictures that I wanted. We just received the prints, and they are beautiful!! One more note, is that she did an excellent job editing one of the family photos where my son's hair was messed up in the wind. A little touch up, and we were very happy with the final results! I would recommend Brittany to anyone!!

She has a good eye for backdrops and every place she pulled over spontaneously are my absolute favorites! After the wedding we were rushed to get in as many family pictures because of limited time at the chapel. Brittany knew when to be direct to ensure we got the most important pictures. I got the wedding package with the second shooter which I highly recommend. They worked so well together and the second shooter was able to get great detail pictures of the reception and pictures of the cocktail hour while Brittany was with the Bridal Party. All my close family and friends who I have shared pictures with are very pleased. I highly recommend Brittany for any occasions you want photographed.

I had very high expectations for how I wanted my wedding photography to turn out. After having a somewhat stressful experience with my engagement shoot, I knew I needed a wedding day photographer who not only made the end product beautiful, but made the entire experience... Read More stress-free and enjoyable as well. I could not have asked for better than Inspired Life Photography. After reading her excellent reviews on The Knot, I gave her a call and I knew she was my photographer from our first conversation. She is such a laid-back person and that's what EVERY bride (especially Type A brides like myself) needs! She arrived to my church early to photograph the details of my wedding so that when I arrived she could just focus on me and my bridesmaids. And I'm so impressed with how much attention she pays to detail! For example, I really wanted a picture of my Tiffany & Co. ring box, but was embarrassed because I had gotten water marks all along the bottom edge. She was innovative and photographed my box sitting in my veil, which turned out beautifully. She asks questions about all the important shots and makes sure she captures exactly what you want. She works great with large crowds (My husband and I have huge families. HUGE. Like, fifty people per side. And she somehow managed to quickly and efficiently get excellent group pictures). I felt like she was a good friend at my wedding the entire time. We laughed, we joked, we took fun group shots, she coordinated the events of the evening with my DJ to make everything run smoothly, and got so many fun shots of our guests having a blast! I got my photos back within 5 weeks, and I have been told by multiple people that they are the most beautiful wedding photos they've ever seen. They were worth every penny I paid, and I will cherish these memories forever. And I will definitely be contacting Inspired Life in the future for other big life events!
