    Awesome photographer!

    Bruce did our photos and we had an awesome experience! He went above and beyond to get us great photos and saved the day after a debacle with our make-up/hair person. Great to work with, lots of creative ideas and awesome photos. Thanks, Bruce!

    Talented photographer and wonderful person.

    How can I began to describe such a wonderful photographer? Bruce is professional, responsive, adventurous, creative, and punctual. Bruce went above and beyond for our engagement photos and wedding. He is willing to jump across a creek, hike mountains, and crawl in the bushes to get that great shot. My husband, family, and all our guests were so impressed with Bruce. He is quick to return photos and actually sent us a few sample shots the night of the wedding. You can't go wrong with Bruce! He will certainly be our go to photographer for any future photo sessions in the Eastern Sierra.

    Could not be HAPPIER!

    My new husband and I could not be happier with our choice of wedding photographer. Bruce is truly a fabulous photographer and a truly wonderful person. He really captured our special day and he was such a pleasure to work with. He listened to everything that we asked and went above and beyond. Even our guests were commenting on how great he was. He got some great shots of before the wedding, during, the reception and guests. It was amazing! We are just so blessed to have met Bruce and found such a treasure of a guy! If you are looking for a photographer in the Eastern Sierras... you cannot go wrong with Bruce. Bruce, Thank You for making our day all the more magical.

    Bruce is a no-brainer! Best Photographer to work with!!

    I am so thankful I found Bruce for so many reasons! Just by looking at his website before reaching out I knew that his down-to-earth witty personality, willing to work with us and our smaller wedding, and incredible photos was exactly what we were looking for! Bruce continued to work with us through the pandemic, the fires, crazy weather and constant location changes (always getting back to us quickly). Bruce always found the most incredible locations (we’re still getting compliments that people think the backdrops aren’t real!) Bruce is so easy to get a long with and we felt comfortable from the very beginning (we were very nervous at first.) He gave us very easy direction; allowing us to find our grove ourselves to feel the most natural and stepped in when he saw fit. He is always willing to get down and dirty to get the best shots and gave great positive affirmations as we were going making us feel more confident. He also put together a great wedding video with photos/audio recording’ and even made us a slide show with engagement photos before the ceremony and the new wedding photos after. We received a few sneak peeks that night (Engagement and wedding) and the rest of the hundreds of photos the next few days (so much quicker than we ever imagined). We also got both social media and printing sizes for the photos (which was super nice). Bruce will continue to be our photographer for all future shoots! We now consider Bruce a friend and are both so inspired by him that when we take certain photos we say we tried to pull “a Bruce” shot! -Amber & Billy

    Fantastic photographer and human being!

    Bruce is an absolutely stellar wedding + climbing photographer and person. His photography business was recommended to my husband and I for our wedding by a good friend. After having the pleasure of meeting and working with Bruce over the past half year and having had a very successful engagement shoot and wedding in the Eastern Sierra, I can state with absolute confidence that Bruce has phenomenal photography skills. The lighting, composition and emotional eminence of his photos were remarkable. We were also impressed with his creativity of his shots, which were captured with a wide range of cameras, lenses and angles! Our family and guests were equally thrilled about his photos from our engagement and wedding. Bruce proved himself to be reliable, dependable and timely after multiple meetings and a climbing session together. Also importantly, he has very pleasant demeanor and is easy to be around, which really helped us stay calm and act natural during photography sessions (I can't state enough how important this is during a wedding). Overall, if you are looking to hire an excellent photographer in the Eastern Sierra for your wedding or other event, you could not hire anyone better than Bruce!

    There aren’t enough characters in this here comment-box to describe how incredible a photographer Bruce is. We asked him to photograph our August wedding at June Lake, and it was truly one of the best decisions we made about the wedding. We were hesitant to have an “engagement photo session,” because I thought it might be corny. Since it’s included in his (very reasonably priced) package, however, we gave it a shot when we were driving through Bishop. We had a blast scrambling around on the rocks in the dramatic late-afternoon sunshine and I knew I didn’t need to worry. Bruce has an incredible eye for photos and angles and a gift for working with the light in the mountains in any conditions. When our wedding finally arrived, it was an horrifically smoky weekend due to the forest fires. Bruce was positive, made the most of it, and still took absolutely stunning pictures despite the conditions. At the wedding, he was brimming with energy, dashing around to capture all the magical moments of dancing, kids being kids, old friends laughing, new couples smooching, etc—right in the thick of things, while simultaneously being totally inconspicuous. So many friends told me how much they loved his energy and friendly smile. We love him too! The pictures were ready just a few days later and it took my husband and I two whole beers each to pour through them on the couch together, enjoying the opportunity to relive the wedding day. What a gift. Thank you Bruce!

    Bruce isn't just a photographer, he's a land surveyor, a weather man, and a mistro of light. We could not have asked for anything more from him on our special day.

    Wow... I don't know where to start. Working with Bruce was exceptional. From day one, he shared our enthusiasm for our wedding and proved that he was going to "create" personal, perfect wedding pictures. I love that he used the word "create" to describe the process... he is a hardworking artist! Bruce met us for an engagement session and really eased our nervousness about being in front of the camera. He also met us for a session at the courthouse when we picked up our license documents. He actually made filling out paperwork enjoyable! Even though we were already impressed, the wedding day still exceeded our expectations. We got so many compliments from our guests about how great Bruce was, because they saw how he threw himself 110% into his work. At various points during the wedding and reception, he climbed trees got down in the dirt to get the shot he wanted. And it was worth it. Every single photo is a work of art. Ahead of time, he gave us tips on what moments we should remember to photograph, because he has been doing this for a while and knows what he's talking about. He also set up a great photobooth that our friends and family loved. He gave us free digital copies of all of our pictures, but we've ordered dozens of photos from his online gallery for ourselves and our friends and family. In addition to the photos, he made us a beautiful, personalized wedding album that we will cherish forever. I have cried (happy tears!!) many times while looking at our photos. We loved working with him and we really love his pictures! We plan to hire him in the future to capture important milestones and family gatherings. Hiring Bruce was one of the best choices we made during our wedding planning process.

    With our decision to choose a destination wedding, we had to put a lot of faith in several of our vendors without being able to meet them face to face. It took a leap to make many decisions on who to go with. Choosing Bruce as our photographer may have been the best decision we made throughout the entire process.

    Bruce was an A+ in everything we could ask for. Our family is very outgoing and can be somewhat blunt and in your face. Bruce rolled with our entire group and helped elevate the event in the ways we had hoped. He has an obviously prevalent work ethic and takes pride in what he does. His communication before, during and after the event was extraordinary. His timeliness on how quickly he returned our photos was nothing short of amazing as well.

    Most importantly, the photos he took were incredible. We couldn't be more grateful and lucky to have this wonderful man as our photographer. Would recommend to anybody I know. Thank you Bruce.

    Bruce is not only a fabulous photographer, but even more important to me, a fabulous person. He really captured the "true us" and all of the emotions and fun that came along with our engagement and wedding. He genuinely cared about capturing our love as well as the love for all of our family and friends, and he seemed to enjoy himself while doing it! Super fast turn around for getting our pics back to us. We received a few dozen of the best the day of for engagement and the very next day for wedding, and then within a few days we had all of them. He sent pics via email, made a picture slideshow for us, posted to his website where we were easily able to order prints and share with family/friends and sent flash drives! He was available to make any adjustments we requested to any pictures. He also designed a beautiful wedding book of a compilation of engagement and wedding pictures, our copy of the book was included in the package. For the wedding day he was there early and stayed late.. didn't miss a thing! Check out all of our pics on his website under the client gallery, Berry Wedding.

    Bruce is a very talented and professional photographer and genial, friendly person. He put us at ease during our two photo shoot experiences with him and was all over, capturing all different aspects of the event, at our wedding. Our photos turned out beautifully and interesting, with some awesome play on light and shadows and perspective! We got access to our photos the day of and the day after our two sessions with him, super quick turnaround! Also his pricing is great for a wedding photographer! I highly recommend him and I am sure we will be contacting him again in the future for family photos etc.

Through his skilled lens, Bruce will strive to creat a narrative of your event that will capture the essence, bringing the beautiful moments that might pass the attention they deserve. Bruce is wonderful to work with. He blended in seamlessly from the more quiet moments to action packed fun, and in times where we felt the wedding was carrying us away, he helped to guide us subtly. Thank you Bruce for giving us this gift because your photography is just that. The shots he got of our wedding could not have been better and we relive that amazing feeling every time we look back through them. We look forward to working with you again soon. —Lauren and Graham
