"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.

THE REVIEWS

"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!

I have a styling guide that I can send over, but just wear something that represents you and something comfortable! Be yourselves! Sticking with neutral colors is best but that’s all in the guide! I will help you choose the best outfits for the location we shoot at!

I do not give raw images. Editing is half of the process that goes into images and without that the images are only halfway done. I promise I won’t leave out any important images that you will want / need and if you feel like I missed something I will be happy to look through and send it over to you! I won’t let you miss out on any memories! 

What should we wear to our session?

Can we have raw images?

I will not change your appearance, I want to make you feel beautiful rather than unrealistic and someone you’re not, but I do clean up skin and blemishes and remove anything that may be a distraction to the overall image. 

If you have already put down a 50% deposit not he date and have to move on cancel, the deposit is non-refundable and a new payment will have to be made in order to hold your date. This is not because I am trying to take your money, but because I am counting on that money to pay bills for the month and I can only take on a certain amount of jobs per month.

Can you photoshop us to look skinner?

What if we need to reschedule or cancel? 

I require 50% down at the time of booking to hold your date and the other half 1 month prior to your wedding or shoot date. All payments are done through an online booking program! 

If weather is not cooperating we can definitely reschedule but some of my best and favorite images are taken in inclement weather… crazy right? I always have luck and the creative juices are flowing when its raining or snowing. Worries about wind? Don’t be… wind will always work in your favor to create amazing photos. There is nothing better than having movement.
