Wedding and Event Photography

BruceB Photography was wonderful to work with! Bruce took high quality photographs for our college Commencement ceremony, which can be a difficult to photograph. He was very helpful and adaptable and made sure we got all the photos we wanted. I would hire him again for any event!

Headshot Photography

Bruce responded within literal moments of my initial request to schedule headshots, and was incredibly flexible to meet my time demands. He was the utmost professional, working hard with me to capture the look I was going for and I could visibly see when he was pleased with getting the right shots! I plan on using Bruce again for my professional photography needs in the future, and would recommend to anyone.

Portrait Photography

The photos turned out amazing. We couldn’t believe how the background of the photos turned out. Such high quality images, and he made the fall colors really pop. Amazing photos, I would highly, highly recommend BruceB Photography for family photos!

Wedding and Event Photography

I simply cannot say enough nice things about BruceB Photography! Let's start with flexibility. We had originally booked for our wedding in 2019, that got postponed so we pushed it out a year, then covid happened. Bruce was able to adapt with us flawlessly. Next, professionalism and personality. Ladies let's face it, you don't want a photographer who is a stick in the mud. Not only was he professional in demeanor and appearance but he provided light humor in just the right moments to capture those truly, non staged, intimate smiles and laughter! He was skillfull in regard to being in the right place at the right time while communicating with me to make sure we got all the shots I wanted. I am beyond grateful for his professional services and very highly recommend!!!!! Thank you for everything Bruce, you truly captured the day in the most beautiful way!

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

    The quote you receive on thumbtack is based on the job type or number of hours requested. In most cases, the quote will be spot on. You won't receive a "low ball" quote only to later find the price much higher. Upon completion of the assignment and expert editing, you're receive high resolution digital images with nothing further to buy. Overall, I think my pricing is extremely competitive and value oriented.

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

    You will find my goal is to provide images that make you glad you hired a pro! You can bring your suggestions, ideas, pintrest examples, etcetera and I will incorporate your concepts to meet your needs. I'm always happy to answer any questions and happy to discuss with you your goals and objectives.

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

    I have been shooting images since college (a long time ago). I have a good deal of technical knowledge and spent many, many years in camera stores sharing my knowledge with customers. Back in the film days, I had my own darkroom and developed my film and images. Now days it's all done on an iMac and my fingers no longer smell like fixer :). I have lots of gear, lighting, lenses, multiple camera bodies all available to make sure I have the right tool to get the job done!
