brianna bender photographer

Hi, I'm Bri!

Motorcycle riding, cat loving, denim wearing woman at your service to take bad-ass photos of you and your lover.

Photography is a passion of mine and I capture personality and emotion, whether it's an intimate elopement in a forest or an engagement session at the coast with your dog. But let's get real for a sec. Every photographer you're considering to hire or following on Instagram can take a beautiful photo (I hope). What makes each of us different? Sure we have our editing styles and composition differences, but what truly sets us apart is the person standing behind the camera and all the stuff UNRELATED to photography. 

When I show up to your wedding, I'm not going to be just another vendor with a camera. I'm going to be your bestie. I mean, you have to spend one of the most important days of your life with me, so let's make sure we enjoy each other's company.

I guess that means I better tell you a little more about me and how I work, eh? I like to laugh. I'm a professional with a casual vibe. I will say dumb things to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. I'm going to capture the little moments when you think no one is watching. I need you to be okay with me photographing the messy stuff: crying as you hug your dad before walking down the aisle and laughing uncontrollably as your sister gives her speech. I'm not a fan of the stuffy poses. I like movement and action and intimacy. 

If I haven't scared you off yet, it sounds like we might be a good fit. Thanks for sticking around to hear a little about me! Now it's your turn. Head over to my contact page and give me the 411 on your big day. 


P.S. Here's a link to my portfolio if you haven't scoped it out yet.
