Bradley was undoubtedly the best choice we could have made for our wedding photographer! He has such a creative eye, and took absolutely stunning and unique photographs of our special day that we'll cherish forever. He was very easy to work with, responsive to emails, flexible when things needed to be adjusted or changed and very helpful when it came to setting up a timeline for our photos. He addressed all our concerns and listened to what we wanted and made suggestions that aligned with our taste.
We hadn't actually had the chance to meet Bradley before our wedding day because we live out of state. He took care of everything very easily via phone and email and I was surprised how well he was able to build a relationship with us, without ever meeting us first! He even took it upon himself to visit our venue before the wedding to get a feel for the space and what he was working with. He made the photo process fun and easy. This was the first time my husband and I have ever had professional photos taken and I was worried it might be awkward, but he made it fun and painless!
Several of my guests commented on how professionally and nice he was dressed. He wasn't distracting to any of the events we had going on, yet he was able to capture all the important moments that we wanted. A true pro! We highly recommend!

Amazingly creative photographer!
Bradley was great! He remained very professional throughout the entire day and evening, and captured amazing shots of the ceremony and reception. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Bradley is an awesome photographer!
We so enjoyed having Bradley as our photographer - he wanted to learn a bit about us prior to our wedding, so it felt like he knew us a little on the actual day of our wedding. He was calm and patient the day of, totally flexible, and best of all, the photos he took are gorgeous. We love them and couldn't be happier that we chose him as our wedding photographer.
