let's create a meaningful relationship

I’m not going to put you into stiff, awkward poses. It’s much more than that. I’m here to document all of the emotions, happiness, and love that are felt throughout the day. If you’re searching for a photographer to show up, get the typical “perfect looking” photos, we probably won’t be the best fit. If you’re shopping around looking for the cheapest deal, that’s also probably not me. That’s all ok because you deserve to have a photographer there that will fit your wants and needs.

Brady did our wedding and engagement photos. They turned out so well and my wife and I absolutely love them! He is very personable, and he really helped bring out the best in us during our shoots with him. His attention to detail is very good, and it was very fun seeing the result, as neither my wife nor I are (usually) comfortable in front of a camera. We couldn't have hoped for photos that turned out 1/2 as well as ours did, and we would recommend Brady to anyone wanting a superior experience with their wedding photographer.

AMAZING!!! From start to finish 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! Thank you again Brady!

Brady was the most professional and talented photographer! I told him my vision for the most important shots for our wedding and he nailed it! Our photographs have received SO many compliments since we got married in June — they are simply stunning and everything we could have ever asked for and more. Brady is the best and I cannot wait to work with him in the future!!

Brady photographed my husband and I for our engagement photos as well as on our wedding day and we couldn't be more pleased with how the photos turned out! We've received numerous compliments on our pictures and we are so grateful for his artistic talent that is so apparent in the photos we now have to remember our special day. He's also really down to earth and fun which is a bonus in a great photographer!! Would recommend over and over again.

about us

My goal is to deliver your images as quickly as possible while making sure everything looks incredible. I give myself 4-6 weeks to edit weddings and 2 weeks for sessions! This gives me plenty of time to make sure all of the colors are just right and final touches are made! 

what is your turnaround time?

I require 50% retainer to secure your date on my calendar and the other 50% is due 1 month in advance for weddings, 1 week in advance for shoots. If you would like to make a payment plan (up to 3 payments) please let me know! I am always happy to help.

about us

Don't stress this one at all! Right after you book I will send you an outfit guide that goes over everything between outfits, locations, colors and textures. This information will be super helpful and educate you on what looks best from my past experiences!

what do we wear to out engagement session?

I do not deliver RAW images. I believe that editing is a huge part of photography and without making color corrections and final touches the images are not completely finished. I promise to deliver all of the images you want and need!

about us

Yes, yes and yes! I’ve shot over 100 weddings and I have learned so many different things along the way. I have created a “Wedding Guide” that goes over everything you want to know along the way of planning your wedding! If something isn’t in the guide please let me know! I’m sure I could help guide you in the right direction!

Do you help in the planning process?

Absolutely! In fact, I offer complimentary engagement sessions in most of my packages. This is a great way to get to know each other before the wedding and get comfortable in front of each other and the camera. Engagement sessions are so much fun!
