My name is Breanna Shaw and I am a photographer based in Reisterstown, MD with a passion for photography and helping you capture those special moments in your life. Anyone can take pretty portraits, but a wedding is so much more than just that. Every wedding, every couple, every family is unique. You deserve someone who is emotionally invested in capturing all of the little nuances that make you, you. That's where I come in. This is why I love what I do. I get to meet the most amazing people and have the privilege of being by their side on one of the most important days of their lives, capturing all of the big moments, but more importantly all of the little ones too. Photographs are the best way we have to relive the memories for years and decades to come. I am honored to be pursuing this as my life's work. I can't wait to hear from you about your wedding, get to know you as a couple, and capture your wedding day memories!

No other choice!
From the first time I saw Brea's work I knew I wanted her if I ever got married. Lucky for me she was available on my wedding day! From our first email, through after the wedding, Brea has been beyond amazing. She was responsive, and helpful, and informative. She wanted us to have an experience, not just pictures. She wanted us to be able to relive our wedding every time we look at her photographs, and that is exactly what will happen. She doesn't just capture a picture, she captures a memory that takes me back every time I look at them. I can feel the excitement in my soul when I see each and every photograph. She is truly talented, and humble as all get out. She never once made me feel uncomfortable or like I was doing something wrong. She knew exactly what we wanted to capture and she made it happen. Brea also had an amazing set of men with her to help us that day, and they were just as great. I had a picture perfect wedding day, and Brea was a huge and important part of that. I can never thank her enough for giving me photographs like she has. They will never be taken for granted.Sent on 03/28/2019

Unbelievable photos, even better people
I think my husband and I may be more excited about Brea's unbelievable photos than we are about getting married to each other. (Kidding! Kind of.) Honestly, we're just totally obsessed with Brea's work. We could sense from the very beginning of wedding planning that her images, which are filled with joy, energy, action, color, and intensity, were exactly how we wanted our day captured. After looking at a few photographers who seemed to just take outdoor photos in natural light, we were so excited to find Brea who is a was brilliant at lighting and indoor venues. Working with Brea and her team was easy, fun, and low-stress - so appreciated during the planning process. Brea helped us think through timeline and details, but on the day of was so flexible as things inevitably shift around. We just loved having her, Tommy, and Brooke with us on the day of. They were all there for laughs, helped wrangle family, and ensured we got all the special moments of the day captured. We have no idea how they did it - we didn’t even sense them in our space, but they captured every moment of the wedding many different ways from every different angle. We also didn’t realize how much we would appreciate the speed with which Brea delivered our photos. Literally less than 24 hours after the wedding Brea had sent us some some sneak peaks, which was such fun to have - it capitalized on all the wedding energy and we got to share them with family and friends. This was the best money we spent and not only did we get photos we’ll cherish forever, we really felt like we got a friend in Brea and are so excited to work with her again throughout our lives!Sent on 03/07/2019

Awesome wedding photographer!
We could not have been happier with our wedding photographers Brea and Tommy for our New Year’s Eve wedding in Baltimore. When I started looking for photographers, I was a little worried about an evening, indoor winter wedding because there would probably not be very much light..which usually makes it hard to take pictures. I talked to a bunch of photographers, asking about their experience doing pictures in the dark and luckily found Brea who told me I’d come to the right place because she studies light - and if you check out any of her awesome pics (and silhouettes!) on her website www.bybrea.com, you will quickly see her work (especially with low light) is pretty magical and really speaks for itself!Sent on 01/22/2019
Brea is super down to earth, authentic, super creative and really creates the space for the people she’s photographing to feel comfortable and present, allowing us to take great pictures. She was also happy to answer all of my questions! Brea and she and her second shooter/boyfriend (Tommy) made us feel super comfortable during our engagement shoot in downtown Annapolis and even gave us the option to get into the water at the end which made some really awesome shots! The day of the wedding Brea & Tommy (and assistant/photobooth master - Jim) did a great job of capturing us and our guests and we now have a TON of awesome pictures documenting so many great memories from our wedding. The cherry on top of it all is that Brea is super quick to blog the top photos (like a couple days later!) so we were able to share them with family and friends while everything was still super fresh and exciting. Thank you Brea and Tommy!
Brea is SICK-AMAZING-FANTASTIC!!!!! Her photos are full of emotion and are a real visual punch. She makes the process of working with her super easy and delightful! Having Brea on the vendor team makes the party flow so much easier and tons of fun. BOOK HER NOW!!!
I loved meeting and working alongside Brea at a recent wedding! Her work is fantastic and she has a super-fast photo turnaround post-wedding. Prior to the wedding, she was quick to respond to emails, helped give valuable input about the photo timeline, and was just a breeze to work with! On the wedding day, she was also wonderfully relaxed--especially when rain forced us to shift around some photo locations to keep our bride dry :) I would highly recommend Photography by Brea!
Amazing photos, plain and simple. So awesome to work with, you can't go wrong with Brea! She is one of the coolest people ever, and it shows in her work!
