Beautiful pictures at a great price!
We are so happy we booked Thirty Three Photography for our wedding and engagement photos. Brian was so professional. When we sat down for our consultation, he went over what services and packages he offers and asked us a lot of questions to make sure he understood what we wanted. He showed us his portfolio and talked with us for over an hour to really get to know us. As we left, my (now) husband turned to me and said “So we’re definitely booking him, right?”. Brian emailed us the next day with his quote, which was very reasonable, and a contract. We booked right away. Our package included an engagement session, so we could get used to being behind the camera. I sent over some inspiration photos per his request ahead of time. The day of our shoot, Brian got there early to walk around and find the best spots for the photos. He helped us figure out how to pose and look natural like we wanted. The photos turned out awesome, we’ve gotten so many compliments. For our wedding, Brian called me a week out to confirm all the details. He showed up to the venue early again to walk around and scope out the best spots. He was very helpful, and not at all pushy, making sure we got all the photos we wanted. Throughout the night, I noticed that Brian was perfectly blending into the background, while still always being in the right place at the right time to capture every moment. This was super important to us, because we didn’t want our photographer in our face the whole night. We told him we wanted mostly candid shots and he did an outstanding job. Our photos came back quickly and we are so pleased with them! We also received a beautiful DVD set to music with all our photos, as well as a copy of the photos and the DVD for each of our parents. I would highly recommend Brian for your wedding, engagement session, or any other photography need!Sent on 06/30/2019

Literally THE BEST Photographer
If I could give 10 stars, I would. Brian is a dream to work with. He met us for our consultation and asked us questions about what we wanted. He answered my husband's questions and impressed him (which is hard to do). He sent us a quote that night and we booked him immediately. All of his packages were reasonably priced. We scheduled our engagement session which included our 6 year old daughter. Brian made sure she was in important shots and made her "his assistant". We received the photos very quickly and they were amazing. It was hard to choose which ones to print for our collage. Brian contacted us before the wedding to go over last minute details. He was thorough and made sure all our requests were noted. Our wedding day, Brian arrived early and started right away. He was a machine. Getting all the photos and poses on our list. During the ceremony, I did not even see him, but he got great shots. The whole night Brian was capturing special moments. Five days after the wedding, we received the first photos in our gallery. Brian had all our photos loaded in less than 2 weeks. He met us close to home to drop off our DVD and flash drive. These had over 300 pictures that we had not seem. The pictures were breathtaking and I was crying. Thank you Brian for capturing our special day. You truly are the GREATEST.Sent on 07/21/2019

Brian turned what should have been one of my most nervous experiences into an all around great experience. As soon as I saw the passion that Brian had for taking our photos it was inspiring and put me at ease. From beginning to end Brian and his service set him apart from the rest and I will always recommend him. Our photos came out amazing!!Sent on 07/14/2019

Bryan is absolutely a gifted artist capturing the best shots and in super stealth ninja mode. I perform 500 weddings a year and usually see everything, but him, which is excellent with a photographer. He has a way that captures the moment perfectly and does wonders in natural light. The shots he shared with me are brilliantly beautiful. Book with him now, all of my couple's have loved him, so will you!
Brian is a great person and a great photographer. From the many weddings that I have done with Brian, he makes sure that all of your photo shots are taken. I know this personally because when we work together, him and I talk through the time line of events and we make sure that we are on the same page. If he needs to take his clients to have a sun set pose, for example, I will make sure that nothing was planned during the time line so he can do his work for his clients. It is important that the photographer and DJ are on the same page so issues don't conflict with one and other and all of those planned events are not missed for a perfect photo opportunity. I would strongly recommend for anyone to reach out to Brian and to see if he is available if you are in the market for a great photographer. He takes great pride in what he does. The pictures that I have seen really impress me. For the many photos that I have seen, I am like, "Wow, that is an awesome picture!" It just blows me away to see what he can do. Give Brian a call today and see what memories he can capture for you! These will be the memories you will be able to share with the many friends and family members and will last a life time for you.
