We loved working with Brett for our wedding photography! He was so easy to work with and made us feel comfortable with his calm demeanor. He was extremely flexible and accommodating to our scheduling and photo requests , and provided coverage at multiple locations on the day of our wedding. He communicated quickly and effectively with us during our contract and leading up to the wedding. During our event, Brett stuck to the schedule we had set out, and captured the shots we had requested. Other than when we were directly interacting with them, he and his assistant Katie were practically unnoticeable (in a good way), operated in the background and were able to capture all of our special moments throughout the event. Following the wedding, Brett provided our photos (over 900 total) in about 2 weeks! We absolutely love our pictures and have received numerous compliments on how beautiful they are! We highly recommend Brett for his professionalism, positive attitude, and work product!Sent on 10/27/2016

Brett was the first photographer I met, and after that, I didn't see the point in meeting any others because his style was is unique. I had an Indian-Hindu wedding and my husband is white. Aside from the mixed audience, were lots of unconventional things about the wedding, not to mention that documentary-style photography isn't exactly what I had seen my South Asian peers do. I had a gut instinct about Brett's work being unique and I'm really glad I went with my intuition. He did an engagement shoot, the pre-wedding dance party (sangeet), the ceremony, and reception. The ceremony and reception were a total 10 consecutive hours, and he and his colleague Katie braved 100+ degree heat and really captured the spirit of an Indian-Hindu fusion wedding. He also captured our personalities very well. Hindu ceremonies are very long and complicated (mine was 3 hours), and Brett and Katie had no background for what was happening. They expertly navigated the logistics and nuances of the ceremony and made the whole thing feel so real. Posed photographs were at an absolute minimum because there was so much else going on. In fact, Brett's style is the complete opposite of what I've seen for most South Asian weddings in my network. My husband and I immediately felt at ease because he's a very warm and easy going person. I couldn't have asked for more in terms of quality, value, and aesthetic. If you want truly unique wedding pictures, you should hire Brett.Sent on 07/03/2016

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Brett and Katie!! We had one of those, everything changes at the last minute, weddings, and those two rolled with it like it was nothing! From the beginning, Brett was super easy to work with. He was easy to get in touch with, and quick to respond to any and all questions. He even contacted the church to ensure he and Katie would be within their requirements. The day of our wedding, Katie and Brett worked to make sure we were comfortable and everything in their power went smoothly. They are quick and efficient about family portraits, and everything from there was easy going and relaxed. Whether it was hiking up a hill, playing in the rain, or herding our family members, Katie and Brett were absolutely fantastic! Friends and family mentioned several times how polite, kind and professional they both were, and how they both seemed to be everywhere all at once. I cannot recommend them highly enough.Sent on 05/04/2015
