About FotoVitae

They're your moments...

Through a candid, photojournalistic style, FotoVitae, based in Portland, Oregon, creates timeless imagery of a couple’s special day. Brandon, the lead photographer and owner, remarkably captures the raw emotion, tradition and details of the wedding day. The art of storytelling allows Brandon to photograph moments of the wedding that the couples themselves may have missed! While he shoots primarily out of Portland, he expands throughout the Northwest and Alaska, and is always open to travel for destination weddings around the world.

Brandon's passion for photography started when he was in high school. He learned to compose shots and develop b&w film. During his high school and undergrad years, photography was simply a hobby, but his talent advanced when he attented The School of Photo in Johannesburg, South Africa. Ever since he started FotoVitae in 2006, and his hobby turned into his career, Brandon feels proud and fortunate to document such an incredible and important day.

Brandon was amazing! From Day 1, he was very responsive, easy going, and totally willing to work with us. We had our venue cancel on us with a month to go, due to a local fire. Brandon was totally fine with our venue changes and last minute planning. He showed up and immediately was a hit with the families, bridal party, and groomsmen. He was super nice, relaxed, and just took charge of what needed to be done. He is amazingly sweet and easy to be around, so everyone was comfortable and relaxed throughout the day. He worked so hard and captured so many details and the socializing during the reception. Going through our photos was so much fun and allowed us to relive the day. He took shots in multiple locations and was open to trying new things (like having me climb a small tree). The guests were chatting him up and spending time with him as well. Everyone was talking about how great and nice he was. I highly recommend him and wish he did more than weddings. He is the type of photographer and person you want to stick with! We are so happy with Brandon and his work, and can't say enough about him.

Brandon was absolutely amazing throughout the whole planning process. We got our engagement photos as well as our wedding day coverage. We were so happy with the quick turn around, but incredibly thankful for the quality of the photos and the editing. We chose him because he doesn't just edit pictures to look trendy like so many photographers do now, but he has a true artistic eye that came through in the composition of the photos. Highly recommend Brandon, and we hope to use him again for our own family portraits!

I've worked with Brandon, and have nothing but wonderful things to say about his photojournalistic style and professionalism. He shoots weddings all over Oregon, Washington and Alaska, and always manages to capture the real, emotional and unforgetable moments you love to see at weddings. Of course, he is incredibly thorough and thoughtful with his camera, and while he manages to capture these gorgeous moments, he is also brilliant with the more formal portraits, easing you and your loved ones into comfortable poses. I highly recommend FotoVitae
