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!Sent on 08/18/2018

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.Sent on 03/17/2018

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.Sent on 12/05/2017
