Introduction: My style of photography is unique and different from what you may see in other photography. My goal is to create art from the moments you will cherish and remember for the rest of your life. It is an honor for me to be a part of this process. I enjoy being able to capture beautiful moments in peoples lives. I like to believe my photos are more than just ink on paper. They are moments captured. My photos give people the opportunity to relive a certain special moment in their life, and I love being able to do that for them. I like to create. Art has always been a passion of mine and I strive to make every photo I take a work of art.

Brian has been our event photographer since day one. From concerts, video shoot promos, social media posts…he’s been our go to guy and we attribute most of our branding/band image to his creativity and talents. Not only have all the pictures been top-notch stellar, but we have so much fun shooting with him. He’s an absolute blast to work with.

My wife and I could not be more happy with Brian. This was our first hire through Thumbtack and we we are so glad we hired Brian. He was right on time. Super professional and everyone at the wedding loved his personality. We even got compliments for our photographer since he was so easy to work with and very personable. I would hire Brian again without a doubt.

Brian & Victoria were so great to work with on our wedding day. So professional and easy-going - something that was much appreciated for this stressed bride. The photos themselves also blew my mind - I honestly could not be happier, frankly - i'm obsessed. Would recommend Brian C Image to anyone for their event. Great people, great work!

Brian was fantastic! He was responsive and willing to accommodate the changes we had to make to our wedding plans (including both time and location). He was incredibly professional and directed my enormous Italian family with a calm, but confident demeanor. It was clear from the start that we could trust his expertise. We received access to almost 300 professionally edited photos in roughly 2 weeks. I would definitely recommend Brian if you’re looking for an affordable photographer without sacrificing quality!

I was really excited to work with Brian, and was absolutely over the moon that he was available on the day of our wedding. I was really hoping he'd bring his A game to the table offered to pay him 15% more than what he asked. We scheduled an exploratory trip one moth before the wedding (it was at Boston Public Library) and we discussed the possibilities and the angles and generally the strategy for the photoshop (we only had one hour for that). Brian dismissed my concern about light equipment, and said flash would be enough. On the day of the wedding he arrived late... that was disturbing but we moved on. The photoshoot was strange because he kept switching lenses and a lot of time was wasted. During the ceremony he was REALLY FAR away from where I was with my fiancé. The processed pictures were supposed to arrive 3-4 weeks after the event, it actually took 2 month. No big deal, but yet another red flag. I insisted on the raw pictures (for which he charged me on top of the fee I payed initially) and the minute I saw them I already knew that hiring him was a mistake. The entire ceremony was butchered..... the beauty of the moment was absolutely ruined. I had to take the raw pictures and have them professionally photoshopped to have something to hold on to as memory... you can see a raw image attached. Virtually 95% of pictures of the ceremony look the same, with the people sitting in the front row covering the wedding dress and the flowers on both sides.... Brian did try to make it up to me at the end and processed some of the photoshopped pictures. Unfortunately, that also didn't work out because the pictures where erased from the drive before I had a chance to download them... I am giving Brian 2 stars because there were indeed some amazing pictures at the very beginning pho the shoot, sadly that is not enough to make up for the lost moment that no money can buy... I am honestly baffled by these reviews because my experience was not even close to what people claim here. My advice, if you have an upscale, black tie event, do not hire Brian. You really need to pay a bit more and hire 2 photographers each with a different type of lens and an area of focus (on close ups vs more entourage pictures) and potentially a 3rd person to handle the light.

Elena, I am sorry you had such a poor experience with me. I am not lying when I say I am shocked, because I believe I got some of my best wedding pictures at your wedding. I have included some in my Thumbtack gallery, my website, as well as my social media. I have shown friends and family your photos and everyone was blown away at the beauty. I did apologize for being a few minutes late past our agreement. Parking in Boston that day was trickier than anticipated. From what I gathered it did not interrupt the schedule of the wedding day and we had plenty of time to get all the pictures we discussed. I am not sure where you got the 3-4 week turn around time. For your wedding on September 26th, I remember telling you 4-6 week turn around, which is quite standard for wedding pictures. I sent you your gallery on Nov. 12th, so it took me 7 weeks. I apologize for making you wait the extra week, that time of year is extremely busy for most professional wedding photographers. After I sent you your final gallery of 400 edited images on my website (which is still there and will stay there for 1 year after your wedding date), you requested that I edited a handful of iPhone pictures your guests took, as well as re-edit a couple of mine for minor things. I followed through and emailed all those back to you the next day. A month had gone by, and I deleted my old emails because I have to stay organized in this profession. I constantly have new photos coming in and out. I am still willing to edit or re-edit any pictures you want and I have told you that from the beginning. I have done all that I can to try and please you and make you happy and satisfied with my service and product, but it appears I have been unable to do so. I wish you and Avi the best, Sincerely, Brian Cunningham For any shoppers reading this review: I have covered many upscale, black tie events and have always recieved great reviews besides this one. I do provide a second photographer if requested and can handle any lighting situation. This particular wedding was at night in the Boston Public Library and I got tons of amazing shots. You can see examples in my gallery here on Thumbtack or my website.

If you decide you want to book me, I take a deposit of $200-$500 depending on the shoot and we sign a contract booking the date for you. (for weddings only) 6. As the date gets closer, I get back in touch with you and we go over all the details again. (for weddings only) 7. I photograph the event or photoshoot! 8.
