Brian was patient with us during the initial consultation. He spent a significant amount of time explaining his wedding packages and which one would be the best fit for us. Brian prioritized us and our needs and did not try to oversell us on a package. He was also very flexible with the last minute changes we made due to the pandemic. We shifted the wedding location, time, and size significantly and each time he adapted to the update without pause. He worked with us to brainstorm and come up with post-ceremony poses.Sent on 08/08/2020
Even though he had already done numerous events at the same location, Brian arrived at the location well before the scheduled time to scope out the area for the best angles. The day of the wedding, he was extremely thorough in capturing our most important moments. He worked with the venue wedding coordinator to ensure the ceremony was seamless.
Ultimately Brian was able to edit photos and delivered them to us with a quick turnaround. We could not be happier with the quality of the final photos and are so grateful we had the chance to have him as a photographer. We highly recommend Brian for any of your photography needs.

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.
