My goal is simple, to make you cry, smile + even say "wait when did this happened?" when you received your wedding gallery. 

I love to capture those in between moments just as much as those posed portraits. Think of me as your third wheel during your trip in this new chapter of your life.

I love building a friendship with my clients, this means I love meeting in person + discussing your plans. You get a free coffee/ tea or pastry in the process, who doesn't love that right?

Once you are completely booked you will received a questionnaire that you can complete as you continue to plan your wedding. Once it's completed it will help me create a timeline of your wedding day to which we all revise, I also review it with your other vendors such as Hair/Make Up + DJ.

Once your wedding day arrives we will already have all the details of how your day is planned out, all you need to do is enjoy your WEDDING DAY!


I also encourage having your engagement pictures done. This helps you get comfortable with how I work + helps polish your posing skills. Don't have any ideas on where to take your pictures? Do not worry, I offer a location guide with a variety of location options. You have never done professional pictures before? This is even better, this means you will be easier to guide + will grasp my ideas faster than people who have done this before. I promise I will make you forget I even have a camera on me, I become a fly on the wall.

Ok Brenda, how do I start? Easy, just fill out this request form below to receive my Wedding Welcome Guide. This guide helps my couple answer any questions they may have + it shows you any little details you have yet to think about.

I highly recommend Brenda for engagement and wedding photography. Brenda did a wonderful job for our engagement and wedding photos. She was professional, on time, detailed/organized, and helpful at posing us in a natural way. We loved the energy and comfort that Brenda brought to our special day. She delivered on everything that we asked for from formal portraits to more candid shots. Brenda truly does go above and beyond for her clients and ensures an enjoyable experience during stressful moments. Thank you Brenda for capturing all the moments of our special day!

Jon + Kristen

Brenda is incredibly talented, kind, and professional. She was so fun to work with, gave everyone clear direction on poses, and has given us everything we could have asked in our photography and more. Our photos are romantic, light, airy, and just absolutely beautiful!! We are so happy we worked with her for our wedding and cannot wait to work with her again for more of our milestone moments. I give her the absolutely highest recommendation! She is a true artist!!

Will + Kennedy

From the moment I began working with Brenda I knew I had made the right decision. She takes the time to get to know you and listens to what you want. In love with her work and the amazing shots she got for us. Highly recommend! :)

Freddy + Edith

When I first started looking for photographers, I followed the people I liked on Instagram. I really loved how bright and airy Brenda's photos were and how she spoke about her subjects. From our initial meeting forward, I knew Brenda was who I wanted to work with. She was incredibly thoughtful and offered a lot of guidance, especially as we dealt with the change from a large wedding to a small backyard ceremony. The photos are absolutely stunning. Brenda did such an incredible job of capturing our friends and family, as well as the overall magic of the event. She had such great ideas for unique shots that ended up just being stunning. She has an eye for what will work well and knows how the photos will turn out. We are doing a "big party"/2nd ceremony next year and have already contracted Brenda for next year's event.


Mike + Erika

Brenda was incredibly thorough, professional, and fun throughout the entire process! We knew right away that Brenda's fun loving personality would align perfectly with the tone we set for the day. Thankfully, Brenda was able to adapt to many curve balls on the day of including a delayed start and a torrential downpour. I could have not imagined more beautiful moments that she captured, and we look forward to working with Brenda in the future!

Dan + Lauren

My husband and I used Brenda as our photographer for our engagement photos as well as wedding. Let me tell you our wedding day went a little south with the weather, it was supposed to be outside but it rained and snowed! Even with all the chaos Brenda knew exactly what to do and found a space inside to stage our photos and still give us an amazing gallery. She lifted my spirits in the process as well. The weather played no affect on her performance! I was so happy with everything ! I would highly recommend Brenda and I know we will personally use her for future milestones!

Ryan + Morgan

We hired Brenda for our wedding in September 2018 and we were 100% satisfied with our experience. She is such a talented photographer, the pictures were beautiful and I could tell she has a love for the work she does. She is so friendly and easy to work with, she made my husband and I feel comfortable/confident and we really appreciated that. I look forward to hiring her for our future special moments and life milestones! 

Roberto + Lorena

We could not be happier with our photos! Brenda is sweet, funny, and creative. She’s also very accommodating. We love our photos!

Jon + Kelsey

I used Brenda for wedding portraits and also a “first look” session. She was wonderful and professional. She was attentive and made sure to ask if there were things we wanted incorporated in the session. I would hire her again.
