So grateful for Brad!!

Brad was the perfect photographer for our wedding. He is so funny and friendly and it made posing for pictures feel easy. He knows everything about weddings and was really considerate of us and all of the other moving pieces. There were times when my wife and I felt nervous or emotional and he was an amazing person to have with us during those times. I usually feel really awkward having photos taken and feel nervous about how I will look in them but Brad made sure I wasn鈥檛 worried about any of that and the pictures are so special. He helped me when I accidentally picked up leaves and bugs into my dress and was so nice. My family loved his energy and humor, too! I also really can鈥檛 say enough how much Brad helped us with planning and how great it was scouting the venue with him. He gave us a lot of ideas for our ceremony that we ended up using. We really felt like Brad was looking out for us and making sure we had an amazing day, and we鈥檙e so happy he was a part of it.

Brad is the absolute best!

Brad was amazing to work with and his photos of our engagement session and wedding were incredible. He was so helpful in every aspect of our wedding with advice and suggestions when needed, creating a seamless day of timeline, and making sure our day was perfect. His photos captured the day in such detail that we can look through them and relive each moment. I鈥檇 highly recommend Brad for anyone in need of a photographer!

Best Wedding Photographer Ever!

Brad was AMAZING to work with! Not only did he photograph our wedding but he helped coordinate and keep everything running smooth the day of! He knows SO much about weddings and everything that goes into planning them that he had ideas and solutions for everything! Brad went above and beyond what I even imagined a wedding photographer could do. We met up at least twice before the wedding to scout out picture locations and anytime I had a question he responded quickly and professionally. I can鈥檛 say enough good things about Brad, he captured our wedding perfectly and our family and friends are loving the pictures. We can鈥檛 wait to work with him again and we will recommend him to anyone who needs a photographer!
