"he really had a spectacular passion for photo"

WOW. It was SUCH a pleasure taking photos with Brady here in Portland, Oregon. He was very professional, kind, light hearted, and you could tell he really had a spectacular passion for photo. I would highly recommend him to anyone else who wants amazing, intimate shots. Amazing work Brady! 

"HE CAPTURES GENUINE, AUTHENTIC MOMENTS"

Brady knew what poses would look best before we even arrived at the location. Even if some didn't work out, he was able to get creative and improvise amazing poses that still looked effortless. Loved the adventure we went on while on this shoot! Couldn't be happier with the quality of the pictures and genuineness of this photographer.

"THEY COULD SEE THE EMOTIONS IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS"

I could’ve not been more happy with our engagement pictures. Everybody complimented on our pictures how they could see the emotions in the photographs and of course I myself am absolutely in love with them. My fiancé absolutely dislikes taking pictures and it took a good amount of convincing him to the engagement shoot. Anybody that is thinking about booking him, do not hesitate!

Is that even a question? Heck. Yes. Traveling is one of my favorite things ever and if you’re getting married outside of the United States… SURPRISE! I give huge discounts as long as you cover my transportation and lodging! Just shoot me an email and we will start planning!

Of course I do! I actually add in a FREE complimentary engagement session to all of my packages. This gives me a chance to meet you in person and get to know you two individually and as a couple. Most importantly I want to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding day.

Don’t stress it, I will send over an outfit guide with tons of advice but just wear something that is comfortable & your style. Be yourself! Sticking to neutral colors is best but I can help you choose based on the locations we choose.

I require a signed contract and 50% deposit to save the date. The other 50% will be due one month before your wedding. Everything will be done online and it’s super freaking easy!

I always suggest using a second shooter for larger weddings. Especially if there are several things going on at the same time. Having a second shooter ensures that we capture every moment of your day. If your wedding is smaller and more intimate I feel 100% confident that I can cover all the bases!
