Absolutely the best!

Choosing Brian as our wedding photographer was such an easy decision for us. The moment we started looking through his portfolio we knew that he was the photographer we wanted to capture our wedding day. I wanted to work with someone who saw the moments most don't see but love to remember. But it's easy to see how talented he is from his work so let me explain why he was the best choice for other reasons. First off, his responsiveness and flexibility are unparalleled. My partner and I live in CA but were planning our wedding in WI and also wanted our engagement photos shot in WI. We planned to come during the summer for our engagement photos. Unfortunately, the week we were planning to be there was filled with storms and rain. The week leading up to the day, Brian was so good about checking in with us, reporting on weather, and reviewing back up options with us. On the day, the forecast was showing that it would be clear but a couple hours before our meeting time, the storm clouds rolled in. Brian was already on his way to Madison but was so kind about rescheduling since all of our photos were intended to be outside. He was so flexible and made himself available to us knowing that we lived out of state. We ended up shooting the engagement photos the week of our wedding which ended up being a really great way to kick off our wedding week! Plus, we really got to know Brian and felt so comfortable with him later in the week for the wedding day.

He delivered on every expectation (to be honest, exceeded all expectations) at our wedding as well. He's incredibly humble, fun to be around, and makes intimate moments with you and your partner plus a photographer not as awkward. We were so impressed that he delivered both our engagement and wedding photos exactly one week after our wedding. The photos were incredible and we couldn't be happier with them. We love so many that we're having a hard time deciding which ones to print because they're all so amazing!

We highly recommend Brian and can't wait to partner with him on another moment that we'd like to capture!

Would Recommend Brian to Anyone!

Brian truly did such a great job with our wedding and engagement photos. He by far was one of our favorite vendors to work with. He was so flexible on the day of our wedding. Also he even stayed an hour longer for us when we asked him at the end of the night. We loved how is photos were more about capturing the moments rather then posing too much. It felt more natural. Overall, great experience and the photos turned out amazing!

I could not have been happier with my experience working with Brian from start to finish. He was very easy to get a hold of and answered all of my questions before I signed my contract. He had a thorough questionnaire during the planning phase that covered all the key information and details and even let me submit my photo wish list (i.e. every photo combination I wanted for family and bridal party photos). Brian responded to emails in a very timely manner both up front and in the weeks leading up to my wedding.

On the day of, Brian and his assistant were very friendly and polite. They gave all of us space, but made sure I was getting all of the pictures I wanted. He followed my picture wish list and we got all of the pictures I wanted and then some. Brian made suggestions throughout the day and was not pushy. He was the ultimate professional. I never noticed him during our church ceremony, but the pictures from the ceremony were amazing. He also took a lot of beautiful portraits of my guests during cocktail hour.

Lastly, the pictures came within two weeks of our wedding day. The pictures are on a website and a flash drive was mailed to me. I could not be happier with my pictures. They are very natural, not photoshopped or forced, and are beautiful. We got all the shots we wanted and had a really hard time picking pictures to print because there were so many great ones to choose from. The pictures on his website are representative of the pictures we received from our wedding.

I would recommend Brian to all of my friends and would be happy to use him again.
