Hi, I’m Bree!
I am absolutely honored that you have stumbled across my work! Capturing raw emotion as it happens is what I am all about. I want to capture it all; the tears running down a grooms face as he sees his bride walking down the aisle toward his, a family frolicking in the wind, a newly engaged couple dancing in the rain. Being able to capture these tiny moments is one of the most rewarding things that I have ever had the honor of doing!
I had the absolute honor of photographing my big brothers wedding a few weeks ago. It was so nice to spend the morning with my sister-in-law and then head to my brother’s cabin to help him prep for his “first look.”
Melanie steps out of the house and Dave’s jaw immediately drops. His jaw closes and his eyes quickly begin to fill with tears. As hard as Dave tries to hold back those tears, one single drop trickles down his cheek as he watches his bride walk down the aisle toward him.
Watching Jenna grow in the gorgeous, humble, kind, and funny as hell young woman that she is today has been so cool. Having her in front of my camera over the years has been an absolute honor.
I just love everything about this session. The lighting is unreal in their house and the decor was on point! It made for some super cute detail shots, and I was stoked to see that all of their congratulation cards were still up on their mantle.
When we set up our wedding budget, we considered the larger items but smaller expenses slipped through the cracks. I even used wedding budget tools and read blog, after blog, but it was hard to account for EVERY little thing. Especially when plans changed, or minds changed (mine). So, before finalizing your own budget, be sure to review these expenses that we overlooked to make sure that you have everything covered.
I do believe that there is at time and a place for social media, and I do not think I would get rid of it fully, but I decided to do a 30 day experiment and see what life would be like without the distraction. Here are some of my thoughts through the month:
The way that David looked at Bo when he saw her for the first time; it was straight out of a movie. Every girl, everywhere in the world, dreams of finding a man who will look at them this way.
There was so much snow where we were, at one point while I was doubling with Dayna, I had to get off of the sled to allow for some tactful maneuvering and sunk way down into the snow! Almost at waist level! So after that the snowshoes came out, but the damage was done and I was soaked and beautifully numb by the time the session was over LOL!
So I always thought that choosing songs for the wedding would be easy, and boy was I wrong! First, we do not have a “song.” Mainly because we do not have the same taste in music and because Collin, like most men, does’t listen to the words and get all mushy like us girls do.
I have been lucky to have worked with many great people.
Here are some of them, as well as a few I hope to meet soon (in alphabetical order)
