1. Introduction: What's your story?

I’m Brittany! I’m a traveling elopement photographer and destination wedding photographer on a continual journey to show couples just how much they loved deeply and lived passionately by documenting their eternal bond.

One of my greatest joys is assisting couples on their wedding journey, reducing the stress that unfortunately accompanies a traditional wedding and serving them to capture incredible memories. In the 7 years that I have been behind the camera I have been to some incredible places and even met more incredible people. A session with me focuses on creating imagery that portrays deep connection so for years to come those images will serve as a reminder of just how precious your love story is.

2. How long have you been shooting weddings? How many weddings have you photographed?

I shoot between 30-40 weddings per year and have been a photographer for 7 years.

3. How would you describe your photography style?

I like to describe my editing style as true to life and I love contrast, my shooting style is more documentary and intimate focusing on the emotion of the day and the connection and togetherness of the couple.

4. How well in advance should couples book their wedding photographer?

Since I mostly shoot elopements, I would say 3-6 months in advanced. Three months out for a weekday elopement and 6 months out if you desire an elopement or destination wedding during the weekend.
