Engagement Photography

Brian helped me pull off a surprise engagement at Yosemite NP. I didn’t want to put such a big moment in the hands of a stranger on a phone and hiring Brian was one of the best decisions I made (besides proposing!) The communication, help planning, and flexibility are just some of the qualities I really valued with Brian. Now when we got the pictures, we were blown away. He captured everything I was looking for and more. 11/10 would recommend and would definitely hire once again. Thank you Brian for making it a day we will never forget.

Wedding and Event Photography

Brian discussed the particulars of our reception and desired poses ahead of time. He was very friendly and low pressure and transparent about cost throughout the entire process, even during the early planning phase. We enjoyed the natural feel of our photos and picked Brian because he captures those candid moments and funny expressions that make you feel like you are reliving the event! He paid attention to the decorations and details, which was important to us as our reception included a ton of DIY elements. Brian also was able to accommodate our requests for specific poses, and find a 2nd Photographer to help with our unique photo booth. He also got our photos back sooner than expected. We felt the value was very fair and the photos were good quality. We would definitely hire him again for another event or special occasion!

Portrait Photography

Brian was flexible, coming to a different location to shoot on a day's notice. He was professional and delightful to work with. Best of all, his photos of our family were excellent.

Engagement Photography

Brian was just amazing. Very friendly and engaged all our guests. He was involved in our event just like he was part of our friends group. He was chatting with the guests too and took a lot of candid shots. I’ll definitely hire him for all our future events.

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

    Most often I work under hourly rate which is dependent on type of gear required, amount of setup, support personnel (hair, MUA, stylists etc) and the type of image processing that is desired. Overall, pricing is flexible, so can also offer fixed pricing for more open ended projects if you think I might be a great fit, but are concerned about the open-ended cost an hourly rate might suggest.

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

    Love to chat with folks and hear/learn their vision, goals, and how they think I can help. Happy to chat and entertain questions via messages, in person, or over the phone. Please feel free to contact me as you wish.

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

    No formal training in photography. I was lucky enough to grow up around cameras and have always enjoyed learning and working with people. I continue to learn through networking and workshops.
