A must-book photographer for any event.

Brett, Shana, Katie, and the entire Making the Moment team are fantastic! We found them from a recommendation of our venue, The Arcade, and we could not be more grateful! The entire company is professional and responsive. Brett guided us through the entire process and worked with us to create a timeline of the day, making sure to get our input, as well as adding in his expertise. Everyone told us one of the most important things we'll have after the wedding are the photos, so be sure to get a good photographer. We certainly got the best! Brett was a joy to work with, and even better - the photos are everything we dreamed of and more! I can not recommend this company enough!

Could Not Recommend Making the Moment MORE!!

I could go on & on about Brett and the entire Making the Moment team. I mean, talk about the ultimate hype team! They made me feel so beautiful and calm. And I think the best part about working with them was that I never ever felt rushed or like I was on someone else's time. Anything I asked for, they made possible. My now-Husband and I first met with Brett in December of 2020 and had the most wonderful time chatting with him. From there, we did not look for a single other photographer. His work was exactly what we were looking for - timeless, artistic, unique and he has this amazing abaility to capture his couples in their purest form. I feel like our wedding portfolio (engagement session + full-day coverage of our wedding) perfectly captures my relationship and I couldn't be more grateful to them for being there on our day. It just felt like we were hanging out with our friends all day with Brett and his team.

Masterful artistic talent paired with genuine warmth, enthusiasm, and personal connection.

Making the Moment became part of the family. The team's聽highest standards of excellence were on full display throughout the wedding weekend, as they rolled with the punches of folks running late or nowhere to be found at call time. There was never any question that we were in the best possible hands, with a team that was deeply invested in the people, relationship dynamics, and emotions behind the shots. It is no surprise, then, that each photo tells a story, expertly and artistically told. And don't get me started on the video. How they managed to sift through all that footage and find the joy and fun, the most stunning floral, the love that's communicated through looks, smiles and tears, all the while weaving together speech highlights as if narrating the day鈥s nothing short of masterful. Nothing is missing and we couldn't remember the day any better than what was captured. Even the song choices are perfect, keeping the energy upbeat and fun, yet romantic. I have submitted it to the Academy for their consideration. It will be nominated for and win best editing, best director, best set design, and best costume. Alex and I won't be nominated because we weren't acting. This love is real, and I'd like to thank my wife and God for that. Now get to bed, you crazy kids!聽
