I’m a photographer focused on building relationships and creating an experience. Although I could show up, take your photos and leave, that’s not who I am. I’m here for the long haul and want to experience and feel all of these important moments with you. I’m not a vendor, and you’re not my client. I want to be friends. It sounds cheesy, but it's 100% true. I get so invested with my couples because I care so much about them. I want to be more than just a photographer to you.

the photographer

My name is Brady, and I am an intimate wedding and elopement photographer based in Richmond, Virginia. Although, I’m continually traveling somewhere new. Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, and Utah are just a few of my favorites. I love to travel and visit new places so if your ideal location is somewhere else, no worries! Jot me a note and let’s plan something insane. I’m always looking for a new adventure.

I’m so stoked that you’re here. Whether it be by chance or fate, you’re here now so let’s be friends. This website on the internet is my corner to be creative, meet new folks and share all of the beautiful stories I’ve had the opportunity to document. When I’m not photographing, you could typically find me hiking somewhere in the outdoors or hanging out with friends or family. Relationships and the outdoors are so important to me, and that’s why I like to incorporate both of them in my workflow.
