Brad is overall an amazing photographer!! I didn’t really have any ideas for what pictures I wanted so I left it up to Brad and ended up loving every idea he had. He made sure everyone was comfortable and went out of his way to get the best angles and best lighting. We love having such amazing pictures to look back on. You will be very happy with your decision choosing Brad.Sent on 10/01/2018

Gotta give props to Brad. He is kind, accommodating, nice and he makes a tremendous effort to get to know his clients beforehand. His professionalism and calm demeanor made my wedding day to my husband special, despite the ceremony being conducted during a global pandemic. My husband and I married a few weeks ago on October 28 at the Frederick County Courthouse. Though the courthouse is not a fancy venue, Brad in my opinion, captured the beauty and essence of the magical moments that were displayed that day.Sent on 11/26/2020
I like to add that my husband is not photogenic nor does he like to take pictures but Brad and his personality allowed my husband to feel at ease. I am amazed how comfortable my husband look in the photos and for that, I give Brad props. :-D. Brad brings people joy because you know how much he loves to take photos. It was a pleasure meeting Brad and I look forward to booking future sessions.

Brad is our hero!
For two camera shy, ultra private people, Brad came into our lives and now we never want him to leave! Brad has a natural, effortless way of making even the most nervous brides (and there were two) feel comfortable.Sent on 06/05/2019
Brad is intuitive and insightful and puts your photography goals at the forefront of his mind and then delicately brings you back to them when you forget (ex: “let’s do a sparkler photo because you wanted one, I know you are tired, but this will be worth it,” and it was).
He is a creative, artistic, talented professional who is warm, kind and easy going. He’s also really fun.
Brad is affirming for the LGBTQIA population. He is accepting, open, cool and kind. Not everyone at our wedding supported us, and Brad was quick to assess and mitigate much of the tension that was present. He quickly picked up on these things and rescued, helped, and assisted the people that needed it. Including us at times!
We will use Brad for every major life moment we want to capture because we trust him, and because he is so incredibly talented.
Brad is a huge supporter of love. And love is love.
Brad is our hero.
Brad is so gifted and sooooo cool! He makes you feel at ease and we love working with his brides - who are always down to earth and lovely. BB Photo for the win!
