I have been in weddings where they pose the bride and groom along with everyone they snap a picture of. I am pleased to say Logan and I didn’t have that experience at all. If you are looking for real moments captured, these are your people! Brian did such a great job fading into the background and capturing our love along with the fun. I think every picture someone has a huge genuine smile plastered on their face. Plus the artist view he brought in each shot was exceptional.Sent on 09/22/2019

222 was the best!
We worked with Brian at 222 photography for our wedding back in May. He was amazing to work with, super creative in the positions or shots that he took. He was very accommodating to different schedules and ideas that both I and my bride wanted. I would absolutely highly recommend him, he was fantastic!Sent on 10/07/2019

Brian took our engagement pictures and did a superb job! We could not be happier with how they turned out, so we invited Brian & Maria to do our wedding in St Lucia. Brian & Maria could not have been more accommodating. They fixed hair, tied shoes, provided drinks, helped with clothes changes, and took spectacular photos. They were very flexible with everything and found multiple locations for our 'Trash the Dress' shoot. They made all of our photo sessions a pleasant experience as they are friendly, fun, and professional. Thank you both for the wonderful experiences!Sent on 07/27/2017

Brian and Maria are absolutely amazing! Their dedication, passion, and attention to detail was more than we could have ever asked for. They were there from the early morning to late in the evening, and even stayed past our agreed upon time so that we could get some pretty remarkable sparkler pictures (see in post). When we received our pictures back (within 3 weeks!), we were so excited! The pictures captured many different perspectives and showed moments of the day that we weren’t able to see. Not only did they leave a lasting impression on us, but our friends and family loved them too!Sent on 04/17/2017

222 Photography is seriously the BEST. My husband and I used Brian for our engagement photos and instantly fell in love; not only with the ART he creates, but him, as a person. He is so laid back and really has an eye for capturing the perfect moment. It is very easy to get a great picture when you just have to "be yourself" and don't have to worry about those stuffy poses that everyone does. Our wedding day was definitely enriched by having them with us; from getting ready, to figuring out a first look where we did not see each other, to just capturing memories. I would recommend 222 Photography to ANYONE that needs a photographer. We'll be using them for the rest of our lives, to capture our important moments. :)Sent on 06/30/2016
222 Photography's reply:Whoa, Satin! Needless to say, we loooove this and all of the kind things you have to say about us. You and Kolin are pretty spectacular people, which I've conveyed numerous times. We're the lucky ones. We wish you the best, thank you the most and will see you later on.

My wife and I got married a little more than a month ago and used Brian and he was amazing. We also used him for our engagement session. Brian makes us feel so comfortable during our sessions its almost like we aren't even being photographed. He is truly amazing wth a camera and the photos are amazing. I don't have enough good words for Brian.Sent on 07/15/2016

Brian has an impeccable eye, an engaging personality, an enormous passion for what he does, and he's not bad with a camera too. You put all that together, and you've got yourself one of the best (wedding) photographers in Columbus. I booked both Brian and his wife, Maria, for our wedding because having a lot of memories was important for me and because I felt we had a decent size wedding, even though adding Maria was a bit out of our budget. I couldn't turn myself away from 222 because Brian's work is downright beautiful. During our engagement session in 20 deg weather, Brian was accommodating, spontaneous, and vibrant. And our photos proved that we chose the right guy. I saw his photo posts on Facebook over the course of the year, I can only conclude that Brian was and is getting better (and more popular) by the day. He was ripe for our wedding, and the pictures turned out nothing less than stunning. He finds those perfect lines and details that make your photos one of a kind. There were a couple shots that we expected to be in the album but weren't, and that made me frown..but I can understand if the shot wasn't there or if it came out bad. Brian creates art, and he has a high standard when it comes to his work. He's very flexible, but he's also a very wanted guy..so book him quickly!Sent on 01/26/2016

Brian and Maria are awesome and produce amazing work!! When my wife and I came across 222 Photography and their work while looking for our wedding photographer, it easily and immediately went to the top of the list. Brian and Maria captured our wedding and engagement photos, and we don’t regret it for one second! Since the day we met for coffee, Brian was super down-to-earth, vibrant, and caring. I was so relieved and excited at that point because he lets you know you’re in good hands. When he teamed up with his wife on our wedding day, it was like butter. We are incredibly happy with the quality and details of our photos and all the emotions that were captured. We’re still waiting on our high res pictures but can’t wait to fill our house with Brian’s artwork. I would recommend them to anybody I have a chance to!Sent on 01/26/2016

Huge shout out to Brian and Maria for doing such a fabulous job with our wedding! No other photographer compares to the passion and creativity of them! We had our engagement pictures done with Brian as well. Everything was spectacular! He operates at such a high energy level and adapts so well with the mood and scene. Every minute of our wedding was captured by them and our hind site is 20/20 on our selection. 222 Photography is by far the best in business because of their professionalism and communication! Brian and Maria, you guys ROCK!!! THANK YOU!!!!Sent on 12/28/2015
222 Photography's reply:Thanks, Bryn! This is really great and hits home in such a wonderful way. You have been a heck of a lotta fun knowing and hanging out with and we definitely hope to see you guys more.
Johnna · Married on 11/06/2015
Brian and Maria were absolutely fabulous to have document our wedding day. Both are so easy going and fun to be around. My fiancé (now husband) and I asked for their availability before we booked our venue, because we knew we wanted them to be our photographers (Brian had shot our proposal, and we loved our time with him as well as the photographs he took!) Brian and Maria captured all the important moments of our day, which is so wonderful to have now because the day really was such a blur. All of our family said that the photos looked like they could be in a wedding magazine; they have an eye for knowing how to make you look your very best. Maria was also very helpful on the wedding day, helping pin up some loose hairs, grabbing my flats to give my feet a rest, as well as my make-up for touch-ups.Sent on 12/28/2015
Ladies, if you are looking for someone to do a boudoir shoot, Brian does wonderful work. He was very professional and encouraging throughout the entire shoot, as I had never done anything like this before. The pictures were extremely classy and sophisticated, my husband loved them.
We would love to work with Brian and Maria again in the future, and definitely recommend their talents to anyone looking for top-notch wedding photographers.
222 Photography's reply:Johnna! This is SO incredibly thoughtful and complimentary! Maria is gushing because rarely do our couples mention her touch up, bridal help HQ talents. Thank you. You and Bryn have nothing but love from us and certainly appreciate everything you've been able to do for us. XO.

Brian did our engagement and wedding pictures. He's great to work with, and I can honestly say I had fun having my pictures taken by Brian. I usually hate pictures.Sent on 01/10/2016
222 Photography's reply:Thank you, Andrew! Not hating it is a win. You guys are fantastic and we appreciate the words.
Hareth · Married on 10/11/2015
My wife and I must have looked at 15 different photographers before deciding on 222 Photography, and we certainly did not regret it. Brian photographed our engagement session and wedding day. Both days / sessions were an absolute delight. He made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. His style, technique, creativity were top notch and the overall experience was unbelievable. Furthermore, the quality of the pictures and prints are absolutely fantastic. We really loved working with him and would not hesitate to use him again for another event or photo-shoot. We highly recommend 222 Photography!Sent on 12/05/2015
222 Photography's reply:We REALLY do feel special and are even more grateful to have been chosen by you guys. I love what you've written and I am deeply appreciative. Thanks, Hareth!
Lauren · Married on 10/11/2015
222 Photography captured our wedding day perfectly! Photography for our wedding was very important to us and we were delighted when we received the images! Brian worked tirelessly to capture all the special moments and we can't thank the team enough for making our day unforgettable. My husband and I don’t love being in front of the camera but Brian made us feel very comfortable. We had a ton of compliments about their professionalism during our day. At the end they really felt like a part of the family!Sent on 12/05/2015
222 Photography's reply:Cheers to family, Lauren! That's a big compliment. Honestly, you and Hareth made everything SO easy; in spite of not loving the camera you guys opened up to it and I feel like the pictures do speak to the personality that I've grown to know. Thanks for being you. You guys are wonderful human beings and gosh darn fun!
Megan · Married on 10/10/2015
Well, of course they nailed it again. When I got the photos I had to pull myself away so I wouldn't spend my entire workday looking through them. Then I looked at them on my lunch and spent the better half an hour lunch sobbing at my kitchen table wanting to re live the day over and over again. My parents are IN LOVE with the photos and everyone I sent the link to is raving about their work. They pictured everything we wanted and I loved seeing parts of the day that I never knew happened. Brian and Maria got this wonderful group of photos of us simply enjoying the day, it is just incredible. Just so damn happy!:) I wish they were more like my bankers or insurance agents so we could work with them more than once (see, I don't plan on getting married again...) but alas, they are just the best photogs and I'll just have to knocked up to work with them again! #maternitypicturesSent on 11/09/2015
222 Photography's reply:You crack us up! This is seriously one of the best and most hilarious things anyone could have written about it. We LOVE it! Thanks, Megan. xo xo .
Warren · Married on 10/10/2015
My wife and I recently got married and picking a photographer was tough because her dad and brother have been photographing as a hobby for many years. With that being said, we couldn't be more pleased with how our pictures turned out; for engagement AND wedding. Brian and Maria are so much fun to work with. They know how to keep it fresh and unique and not too "posed" -except when need be. They have a great sense of humor and their work is incredible-they saw things we never would of seen. #bestvendorSent on 11/09/2015
222 Photography's reply:Thank you, Warren! You guys were really pretty natural in the element and it really comes across in your wedding & engagement collections. You both are top shelf human beings and we'll take that any day.

Cody · Married on 09/26/2015
My wife and I are incredibly grateful to have found 222 Photography. The owners, Brian and Maria, documented our wedding day in vivid, stunning detail. 222 Photography preserved the stories, colors and textures, the weather, the location, the people and the emotions from my wedding day in a way that I didn’t know was possible. The moments that Brian and Maria captured melt my heart on a daily basis and can instantly take me back to ‘the big day’.Sent on 10/14/2015
Beyond the photographs, the 222 Photography duo was a pleasure to work with in each stage of the wedding experience. Brian and Maria are creative, efficient, knowledgeable, dedicated, flexible, kind, funny – they are the total package! Brian and Maria were the perfect addition to my low budget, high expectation, almost entirely-DIY wedding. Their wedding-related knowledge, guidance, scouting, and camera skills helped us pull it all off and take things to a whole new level.
I cannot say enough good things about 222 Photography. They are the best! I highly recommend their artistry to anyone that is searching for a photographer, and I can’t wait to work with them again in the future!
222 Photography's reply:You are the best, Cody! These are seriously some of the kindest words, compliments and love that we could hope for and could only imagine receiving until now. Thank you. You guys are infectious and you make us feel like better people every time we're with you guys. So, thank YOU.

222 is DEFINITELY the photography to choose! They just rock! Our pictures are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING and everyone continues to rave about them. They are so fun and such a joy to work with! We truly could not have asked for a more perfect experience in both our engagement photos and wedding photos. 222 will capture all the moments, the real, the pure, the good. Choose 222. They are truly gold!Sent on 11/19/2015

Brian really wowed us from the beginning with his creativeness during our engagement shoot that we couldn't imagine having hired anyone else for our ceremony! His use of light & shadows is outstanding, and it really gave us a unique, fresh perspective to our wedding day. He went above & beyond to make us feel relaxed & comfortable which really came through in the photos. He's worth every penny! Thank you 222!Sent on 10/02/2015
222 Photography's reply:We kind of love you but I think you know that. Thanks for so much taking the time to write this. We really appreciate and are whole heartedly grateful for it, you and Brian.

We were so lucky to have had Brian photograph my sister and new brother-in-law's wedding. From the first minute of meeting him, Brian felt like an old friend. A friend with amazing photo skills, unending energy, and infectious enthusiasm! Not only are the photos he took absolutely stunning, Brian captured who the bride and groom are and the joyous feelings felt by our family and friends. He even managed to make me not look ugly when I was fighting off tears during my reading! He was there with us for every moment, scoped out some spectacular settings at The Beverly Mansion, and worked tirelessly to photographically journal this very special day. Simply put: Brian is the best of the best and I can't recommend him highly enough! Just wait until you meet him...he is awesome!!Sent on 09/27/2015

Picking a photographer is a big deal for me. I am extremely critical and looking back, this was probably the hardest decision to make regarding my wedding. Even harder than picking my dress, cake or venues! It is so important to be able to look back on pictures and get the same feelings you had that day. Now days everyone uses a phone for taking pictures, but God forbid you lose your phone then what? Any who, I found 222 via theknot/referral made through another photographer. I set up an appointment with Brian and was impressed right away. 222 are very reasonably priced. No one else can beat the amount of pictures received in a package with such great quality work. Although we were thrilled with pricing, finding a photographer with great personality is most important. Brian stayed focused and excited the whole time and made that experience everything we were looking for!! I was so burnt out with wedding planning I almost said forget the engagement shoot, but after seeing his work I am so happy that we did it! I loved how great Brian got along with my guest and they all raved about how engaged he was and how awesome the pics turned out!Sent on 09/26/2015
Guest of mine are already asking for 222's information for their own wedding. If I had to do it all over again I would definitely pick 222 for my special day! Looking back I would have liked a few more shots such as more pictures of the cake and shots of the venue prior to being occupied by guest. I would have liked full length pictures of the candy table, pictures of my guest and the food during cocktail hour and lastly I would have liked more guidance from the photographers during the bridal party pictures to allow for a uniform picture. Overall, I am beyond pleased with 222 services and would surely recommend then to anyone getting married. Thank you 222 for such a great job done as well as the awesome thank you gift!! The wood flash drive shows the unique creativity that I love in my pictures.

Brian from 222 did an exceptional job photographing our wedding as well as doing our engagement session. His style focuses on capturing the emotion and feeling of the event, as opposed to really staged prom-style pictures. Although he does do the whole family pictures and all that stuff that mom wants, the pictures really reflect the joy and fun of our day. 222's package included ALL day coverage of the wedding, so Brian came to my house early to hang out and get the guys getting ready before driving to go photo the girls getting ready, before the actual wedding. Really, he went above and beyond. Highly recommended, you won't regret going with 222!Sent on 06/02/2015
222 Photography's reply:Whoa, Sam! I love it and thank you so much for the lovely words. It's really appreciated.
