So good we’ve hired him 2x!
Bret did a phenomenal job with our wedding photos. When looking for a photographer online, his ability to use the light to create truly beautiful pics caught my eye. He turned out to be affordable and very communicative, so we hired him to capture our sunrise beach wedding.Sent on 02/27/2019
He suggested and set up a first look as I walked down the aisle since our ceremony was just family on the beach and super chill. The photos he got of this moment are my absolute favorites and mean the world to us now (and to think we only did the first look because he suggested it and set it up!) He did a great job herding our family for some staged shots and made great use of the location’s scenery (beach, walkway, forrest area) so it appears we were in more locations than we actually were.
He sent a few first pics so we could share with our friends and family back on the mainland right away and delivered the insanely beautiful pics online and on a USB a couple weeks later. He took his time to photoshop out imperfections (like buoyes in the ocean) but also sent the final images super fast!
As an international event and wedding planner myself, I have high expectations for vendors and Bret is absolutely one of the best!
We liked working with him so much and we’re so impressed with his work, we hired him again for a maternity photo shoot. We let him pick the time and location so he could have creative control. We’ve seen the first few shots and can not wait for the final batch :)
Hire him now! You won’t regret it!!

Our Elopement ❤️
We travelled across the globe from England to elope in Hawaii, we arranged everything online.Sent on 02/25/2019
Brett was our photographer and the first person to greet us on our wedding day. Brett instantly made us feel very welcomed, relaxed and comfortable. This made us feel at ease straight away.
Brett took the time to chat to us and really got to know who we are as a couple in the short period of time we had, expressing this through our photos, creating the most incredibly stunning wedding photos! Really catching our emotions, the special glances between my husband and I, the laughter, the kiss, Brett has created our incredible wedding memories and captured our story beautifully via his photos.
Brett really worked with the stunning scenery and I can honestly say we love every single shot taken by Brett he is very creative and we have a wonderful range of photos.
I could not recommend Brett enough, his work is outstanding, also he’s a top man who made our wedding day such a special experience! Thank you Brett! Get booked with him everyone, no need to look any further.
