Brenda is THE best!!
Brenda is literally the kindest and sweetest person ever! She not only took amazing photos of us on our special day, but she also just made the experience really enjoyable! She was fun, kept us on schedule, and answered all of our questions...and then some! She is truly a gift and I could've not asked for someone better! HIGHLY recommend!Sent on 10/07/2020

We hired Brenda for our wedding photography what we got was so much more. Our wedding is at Newport Aquarium. I first saw her name on a pamphlet the aquarium gave me and then met her at a bridal show hosted there. My Groom and I are not always the most photogenic people and we wanted someone who could work with us and the lighting and the amount of glass at the aquarium which seemed tricky to us so we needed someone who was experienced with the venue. Brenda has, in this year process gone so far and above anything I would ever imagine. She has just wow'd us on being so detail orientated. We did 3 photo sessions leading up to our big day. an engagement session, a birthday shoot and a bridal session. She's like a best friend, a wedding planner, and a professional all in one person. During a makeup session we were even asked how long we've been friends. We feel like we've know Brenda and her warm heart our whole life. The photos I have so far are all going to be cherished for a lifetime and I couldn't imagine having anyone else do our photography. We hired a photographer and left with a true friend.Sent on 10/25/2017
Pottinger Photography's reply:Thank you so much for taking the time to review us. It has been so wonderful to get to know you both over the last year. And we will continue to be friends and girl bosses that get to see each other! I am truly blessed to get to work with you both to document your biggest celebrations in life! And I am so glad I could be helpful throughout the planning process.

I have to start by admitting that I was hesitant about going with Pottinger Photography at first, only because I wanted to go with a cheaper photographer. My then fiancé talked me into going with Pottinger Photography because he felt so comfortable with Brenda. Right away I knew we had made the right decision. Throughout the wedding planning process I quickly realized I had never planned a wedding before and had no idea what I was doing. Brenda, thankfully as been to lots of weddings, has planned her own, and was so incredibly helpful. I honestly could not have planned our wedding without her help. When you hire Brenda you aren't just getting a photography, you are getting a wedding planner, and a friend. She helped me plan the entire minute by minute timeline for the whole day, and helped keep everyone on track. She answered my (many) emails incredibly quickly. Even when I emailed at 10:00pm the night before our wedding!Sent on 10/15/2017
On top of everything else, Brenda takes beautiful pictures! Neither my husband nor I are particularly photogenic or enjoy being photographed. However, Brenda made us feel so at ease. You can really see how happy and peaceful we look in the photographs. I actually cried when I saw the preview pictures because it brought back all the wonderful memories and joy of that day. I cried too when, after getting married, honeymooning, packing up my entire life, and moving across the county all within two weeks, we arrived at our new place, and there was a beautiful gift waiting for me. Brenda had made a locket out of three of our wedding pictures and had sent it to our new place. It's little sentimental details like this that you won't get anywhere else. It If I could do anything differently, I probably would have started with hiring Pottinger Photography. I can't express this enough, if you are on the fence about hiring Brenda, go for it. You won't regret it.
Pottinger Photography's reply:There is nothing better than reading an incredible review! We love what we do and get to work with the best couples and families! Thank you Alexandra for taking the time to write, I know you are busy. We loved documenting all of the fun! And don't be a stranger - even though you are out of state - we will miss seeing you two!

Your photographs and memories are some of the things you cherish most after your wedding day and I couldn't be any happier about mine! I had the best day and the photos reflected that. Brenda and I met a while back working in the wedding industry. Her fun personality is contagious and her photos are flawless. I knew from watching many weddings she did that I wanted to work with her when the time came. When I got engaged she was one of the first vendors I reached out to and I immediately felt a sense of relief. She was so helpful and thoughtful from the beginning to the end of the wedding planning process and day of was even better! She came so well prepared on my hot June wedding day-- she brought fans, water, Gatorade, and even flip-flops for me to change into while taking photos. I got the BEST wedding photos back as a "sneak peek" while on my honeymoon. I was so happy with the way they turned out!! You get what you pay for, and cutting back on costs with a photographer can save you money but will cost you regret later on. I would highly recommend Pottinger Photography to any friend or bride who is touring the venue I work at. She is a beautiful person inside and out and you will not regret having her join your team of wedding vendors for your big day! She also helped me with a boudoir shoot as a gift to my now husband, that too is highly recommended :) Thank you so much for everything, Brenda! You made my perfect day even more magical.Sent on 06/29/2015
Pottinger Photography's reply:It truly was an honor to document your beautiful day! There were so many incredible moments. And we couldn't have asked for a nicer couple! Thank you for taking the time to write - we know you are busy. We wish you two all the very best in your married life.

Words cannot express the gratitude I have for Pottinger Photography. Planning a wedding while overseas can be a huge task. Pottinger Photography not only stepped up to the plate, but were patient, flexible, and accommodating to our requests. Their professional services on our wedding day were remarkable. The final pictures we received were simply amazing. We will truly cherish them forever. Thank you again for your professionalism, creativity, and expertise!Sent on 12/04/2014

Brenda was great to work with from our initial meeting all the way through to the picking up of our wedding album. We love the images she captured and the high-quality products she produced (an engagement session book and wedding album) are treasured keepsakes. Her communication and organizational skills were superb - we had no worries or surprises!Sent on 03/28/2015

As the wedding coordinator from the moment I met Brenda I knew she would be PERFECT for the Baiden wedding on 9/29/13. While the bride was only shopping around I was convinced that a relationship with Pottinger was ideal. Well I wasn't wrong. The attention to detail and professionalism of the photgraphers was exceptional. Working with Pottinger was more than taking pictures. It was a memorable experience!Sent on 10/07/2013
Best Wishes to you guys!
Sara A. · Married on 09/28/2013
Brenda Pottinger is simply amazing! We had the best time with her taking our engagement pictures and wedding pictures! We were stunned at how fantastic the pictures turned out! She was there during every step of the wedding planning process, giving us advice, and helping us make decisions! We just received the entire photo gallery of our wedding pictures, and narrowing it down to our favorites will be one of the hardest decisions we have to make, since every image is unbelievable! Our wedding was the most perfect day and we have Brenda to thank for capturing the beauty of every single moment! She will be our family photographer for life :)Sent on 11/10/2013

Working with Brenda was the best experience that we could have ask for in a photographer. She is professional, but laid back and we completely enjoyed our experience working with her.

Maribeth · Married on 08/24/2013
From the moment we started our planning our wedding day, I knew exactly who would be my first call. Brenda photographed my sister's wedding a few years back, and my family had absolutely loved the experience of working with her. Once we began narrowing down our date, I called Brenda to make sure that she would be available for our big day. If she was already booked, WE were changing our day! Thankfully, Brenda was open for our day and everything began to fall into place.Sent on 10/06/2013
My husband and I are big dog lovers, and wanted to include our German Shepherd in our engagement session... some photographers may have been a little anxious about this request, but Brenda jumped right in! Now, that was no small task, seeing as Zeus was a crazy 70 pound puppy at that time. She took everything in stride and was able to create some amazing photos of our little family.
Throughout the entire wedding planning process, Brenda was my number 1 resource regarding questions about the timeline for the day. She helped put my mind at ease when I started worrying about specific times for the day, and she was available anytime that I had questions (however silly they may have been!)
On the day of the wedding, Brenda brought forth such a sense of calm to the somewhat hectic day. As we were finishing up pictures of me in the hotel room, Brenda was able to brush off little things that had gone awry and was able to keep me more relaxed than I could have imagined possible. Our party bus arrived about a half hour later than expected, and Brenda and her assistant took me and my MOH outside to do some extra pictures together. Those pictures are actually some of my favorite! Brenda kept me laughing and joking in a moment that could have turned very stressful. Brenda was incredibly respectful and reverent throughout our Catholic ceremony, something that my priest complemented her on several times. We LOVED working with Brenda and cannot recommend her enough!!
Lindsey · Married on 04/27/2013
Working with Brenda was the best experience of the whole wedding process. Brenda was so easy to work with, always had a smile on her face and gave us AMAZING pictures to help capture our special day. We could not be more pleased with Pottinger Photography, and with Brenda. We were working with a tight schedule and Brenda captured amazing photographs in no time. We enjoyed our engagement session with Brenda. We loved getting to know her before the big day. Brenda always found the right light, right angle, right pose, and really made everything special. I would recommend Brenda to anyone looking for a personal touch. Brenda cares about her customers and goes the extra mile to make sure everything looks just right. We loved working with Brenda and hope to work with her again in the future.Sent on 05/06/2013

Choosing Brenda Pottinger as our wedding photographer was by far the best decision we made for our wedding. She was hands down our best vendor!! If you want a photographer who is 100% responsible, 100% dependable, %150 talent, and has a great personality to boot you should choose Pottinger Photography to capture the priceless memories from your day. Brenda allowed us to design our own wedding package that was within our budget and included only the services that we really wanted. She traveled to Columbus from KY for our wedding at no extra charge and shot for 9 hrs on our wedding day. Our photos are absolutely gorgeous. She went above and beyond during the whole process to make sure we were always in good communication and that we got the highest quality photos of what we wanted and even after the wedding has made the process seamless in terms of getting our photos and any adjustments we needed made. She makes the effort to get to know you as a couple and is very passionate about what she does. She captured many great candids from our day. On my wedding day I felt so fortunate to have a photographer that I trusted implicitly. We didn't have to worry about a thing. I can't say enough good things about Brenda Pottinger!!Sent on 01/21/2013

Mackenzie · Married on 06/16/2012
My husband and I sat down so many times after our wedding to narrow down which photos we wanted in our album even though we knew we were going to get all of them on a CD to print afterwards. We just loved all of them and felt like so many of the photos expressed our day so well. Brenda is so incredibly talented at what she does. We could not be any happier with how our pictures turned out. She took the time to get to know us and make us feel completely comforable. She has a passion for her work which shows in the quality of her photos. We knew she was working with so many couples, but we always felt like she made us her number one priority whenever we met with her. We were so happy we chose Pottinger Photography to capture the moments of our special day.Sent on 08/28/2012

When I first met with Brenda and Ben Pottinger, in June of 2010, I knew they were the photographers we wanted. They are so personable and outgoing, and they really made the photos the easiest part of our wedding planning. Brenda was readily available for answers to all my crazy emails, and on the wedding day when I had a change of heart about where my husband and I wanted to first see each other, she did not miss a beat and said that it was no problem at all. They have truly become friends throughout this entire process.Sent on 07/19/2011
We got way more than we expected for our money, having good people work with you on your special day and having worked with you for over a year is simply priceless.
The amount of comments we have received on our photos has been overwhelming, they took photos that I had no idea were even taken. Going through the wedding day photos really brought the whole day back to life. Brenda and Ben made us laugh throughout the day and really catered to what we were looking for, and even some strange photo requests from our wedding party. Even our wedding party commented on how great our photographers were throughout the day.
From our engagement photos through after the wedding, they have been amazing and never ever made me feel like we were just another wedding they were photographing.
If you have questions on who to choose for your wedding day photographers, meet with Pottinger Photography, and you will know immediately what to do. I honestly cannot say enough about great they were and how they went so far above and beyond everything we had hoped for in having our memories captured in photos.
