After 11 years in the wedding industry, I have fine-tuned my approach to creating an experience where you feel comfortable. Along with taking beautiful photos, I believe that a good experience starts with how you FEEL. I bring my warm but excited energy to every session and wedding and am able to guide you and your party through photography with ease... and a little humor.
My goal is to photograph your authentic selves and capture the spirit of your wedding as it relates to the energy, people, place, and details. Your final gallery will be a ride down memory lane... recalling specific memories you lived through and moments you may have missed. Your wedding gallery will be a well-rounded vision of thoughtful details, candid moments, and beautiful portraits of yourselves and your favorite people all in one place.
OMG, you're getting married! After I receive your inquiry, I’ll return your email in 24-48 hours and we’ll set up a time to speak over the phone. Why? Because it’s so much easier to speak with a person to answer your questions than get tangled up in emails! We'll discuss your wedding day vision and the best collection for your needs! Don’t worry, I’ll send you a post-consult email with all the details!
Your wedding date will be scheduled on my calendar after I receive your signed wedding agreement & retainer payment! If your collection includes an engagement session, we'll start brainstorming ideas and schedule your session date.
It’s time to practice and feel comfortable behind the camera! Whether you're using these photos for save-the-dates or just want casual photos of you two together, I’ll help guide you through your engagement session without feeling staged so you feel your best. Choose a location that you love or I'll brainstorm a spot with you! (Dogs and outfit changes welcome!)
On our phone call, we can review your specific details to create the best photo timeline. We'll discuss timing for getting ready, any travel times to the venue, group photos, romantic sunset photos, etc! Don't worry I've been to a wedding or two and can answer all of your questions related to timing!
I’m yours for the day! I’ll come prepared with your family formals list, my weather radar app (on deck, if we need it!), and the kind of comfortable vibes and energy you need on your day. The perfect mix of "fly on the wall" for candids and in-on-the-action for all your big and little moments. It's going to be unforgettable!
You’ll receive a link to your password protected online gallery where you have access to download your images, order prints + wall art, or share photos (or the link) directly to family and friends! Your online gallery will be live for one year.
With a little help from you, I’ll design your custom wedding album, place the order, and have it delivered straight to your doorstep - easy peasy! Let me do all the hard work of creating and designing so you don't have to stress over it! (All my years as editor of the Yearbook trained me well...)
From engagement session to wedding day to full weekend coverage, custom collections are created to give you the wedding of your dreams.

Kelsey & Sarah
She is professional, talented, organized, easygoing, funny...the list could keep going! My husband and I have are blown AWAY by the incredibly gorgeous and natural photos Brett took of our wedding. We were blown away by how much Brett made photographing our wedding so enjoyable. One of my bridesmaids who has been in a ton of weddings kept marveling that it was the least stressed she'd ever felt taking photos. We trusted her completely and could not happier that we had the chance to work with her.
Megan & Maggie
My wife and I decided to elope because of Covid. Brett shot a friend's wedding and she was vendor I could not forget! Brett was very flexible in helping us decide on a location for our elopement and understood our unique needs. She provided guidance on best lighting and was very confident and prepared. On the day of, she took charge without being overbearing, which was exactly what we needed! Everyone commented on how courteous and professional Brett was. Three hours later, we had sneak peeks which was such a surprise!
Kari & Patrick
I AM OBSESSED WITH BRETT! My 30-minute consultation with her turned into 60-minutes and I knew she was 'the one!' She is extremely comforting, easy to be around, and fun! She made Pat and me feel so comfortable and at-ease and she knew what she was doing. Her turnaround time is great - she sent us the full gallery within 2 weeks!
