As you may already know

My name is Brennan. I'm a Raleigh/Durham Intimate Wedding Photographer. My style is journalistic in nature. I love capture the entire "vibe" of the event. Not only focusing on you as a couple but your friends and family who have joined you to celebrate!

Behind the story

You'll find that my photography is more "documentary" in nature. What this basically means is that I not only do I focus on photographing you and your significant other, but I also want to capture the atmosphere of the day. I will record narrative of what went on through out the day. My main objective is to unobtrusive yet present.

For about a year I lived abroad in Madrid, Spain teaching English to elementary school kids. During that time I got to travel and truly get to know myself as a person. It wasn't just Madrid but I also traveled to England, Portugal, Sweden, Denmark, Hungary and all over Spain. More over, I learned how to photograph and capture the essence of the different places and accurately depict them.

That's why I love photographing events and relationships between people. I do it to preserve the memory of the emotions that you experienced that day. I photograph in order for you to gaze upon your images and be transported back to that date and time.

I want to capture your genuine personalities with authenticity and accurately. We will have time for traditional family portraits but a lot of my brides don't have very many. I want to keep you in the thick of things and focus on you guys enjoying your day.

After your wedding has been captured through photographs, you'll look back at them and be transported to the moment; you'll remember how you felt that day rather than how I've told you to pose.

I strive for your photography coverage to be representative of your love and your story, eternally.

Testimonial

Testimonial

"My experience with Brennan couldn’t have been better! Brennan went above and beyond to capture my wedding experience. She drove out for our rehearsal dinner, showed up early to take pictures of the decorations, and stayed late for farewells. It was supposed to storm on the big day, and Brennan was on top of the forecast to make the most of the sunny weather. Luckily it didn't rain for very long, but she took that time to take candids of the guests and detail shots. Brennan doesn’t waste a single second."

FAQ

Could you describe your photography style a little more?

A. My style of photography is journalistic in nature, or rather, closer to lifestyle. This means that I focus on capturing the feeling of the overall ceremony and try to avoid being an active participant. I want to be in the background. Don't fret though, because I will definitely be photographing each and every moment. I want to you two to not even realize there was a photographer at your ceremony. I love using natural lighting in expressing emotion and storytelling.
Because at the end the day, that's all you want to remember from this day. Celebrating a union with you and your best friend in front of your loved ones and family.

What if I don't see a package that fits me?

A. All of my packages are completely customizable. I tailor each package for each of my couple so that all your needs are met at an affordable price.
