My husband and I used Brenda Bravo to take photos for our 50th wedding anniversary dinner party. She was great! She always answers all my questions. The photos captured our candid moments and family portraits. She is very easy to work with and the end product was well worth it. I am so glad we used Brenda for our special event.

I did a engagement shoot in January 2021 with a different photographer however I wasn’t obsessed with them. So I found Brenda who was more than willing to redo our shoot. She listened to what I wanted, gave me ideas on how to create the look I want, and as a bonus she even had a colleague to help do make up! She is the real deal. I love the outcome and can’t wait to share. Look no further. Brenda is who you want!!

Details: Posed engagement photoshoot • Candid • Natural or environmental • Outdoors • Two locations • Online or digital proofs and prints • My home, venue, etc.

Brenda Bravo did my senior photos and they came out amazing! I was visiting my grandparents in Florida, and skeptical about finding a photographer at first. She was so responsive, such a nice person, and great to work with. I am so glad I found her on thumbtack. She was very creative and experienced by finding such unique, beautiful, and perfect spots on the beach! I would recommend her to anyone - she will take the best photos of you for any occasion!

Details: Graduation portrait • Traditional / classic (looking directly at the camera) • Natural / environmental (photographed in an outdoor setting) • Outdoors • Physical proofs and prints • Digital or online download • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

Brenda is a lifesaver! She is super sweet and very honest up front. The videographer I originally hired flaked and I found myself without a videographer for my wedding just a few days prior to the big day. I messaged Brenda and she stayed up late into the night (and probably early into the next day) to make sure I could go over the contract and she quickly answered any questions I had. She was really great about being honest in regards to what she could provide me for the budget I was working with. She arrived promptly and was so wonderful the entire evening. Our guests even complemented how sweet and fun she was! I absolutely can’t wait to see our wedding video. Highly recommend Brenda!

Details: Wedding • 51 - 100 guests • Indoors • Outdoors • Highlight video (3 - 4 minutes) • Live streaming

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Asking to put a price on something as invaluable as memories that last generations is difficult. I work with close attention to detail, with the highest technology (on-site and in the office), and extensive hours of training and investment of time and energy into making every single session a well-rounded and satisfying experience for my clients. That being said, I am flexible with creating customized packages for my clients - especially those who would like to buy multiple sessions or add-ons, such as albums, up-front. Please inquire with your needs and we can create a package for you.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Each time I work with a new customer my primary aim is to understand: who they are, what pictures they dream of having, and how my style will translate to tell their unique story. I like to connect with my clients on a personal level so that the experience is not only enjoyable but comfortable and feels like you're hanging out with a friend, not just a stranger with a camera. I'm great at directing people while still letting natural moments happen within a session. This puts people at ease right away because they understand I'm an expert and I have real experience as a model, so I've been on both sides.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I earned my degree in photojournalism with a minor in sociology at Cal State Fullerton back in 2009, since then I've attended photo workshops around the globe with top photojournalists and storytellers from National Geographic, Time, New York Times, Wall Street Journal and so on. I've also worked with top wedding photographers in workshops in Mexico and Peru and various parts of the U.S. Each experience helps me grow as a professional and as a person -- first and foremost, all we wanna do as [really extraordinary] photographers is connect with our subjects and tell their story in the best light.
