ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY

I’m passionate about wedding photography and making couples look their absolute best in front of my camera on their special day!

BRENT IS A REAL PRO!

Our wedding photography was a top priority for our wedding. Your photos are the only thing you have to look back at your wedding to not just remember but relive the day. We wanted to make sure our wedding photos were high quality and that our day would be documented well start to finish. And Brent did just that!

Not only were our photos the perfect representation of our wedding but Brent was very personable and approachable. Everyone in our wedding party was very comfortable with Brent as he created an easy and light experience for us all. He knew exactly what he was doing and even threw in some jokes and small conversation while handling his photography equipment. The online gallery and flash drive we received makes it easy to view and order prints. Our prints are gorgeous and our wedding album looks and feels amazing!

I’m so glad we found Brent and at a fair price too! I highly recommend Brent to couples for their wedding photography. A++!

KIND AND GENEROUS photographer

Planning a CA beach wedding from Wisconsin was a challenge. I found Brent online when searching for a photographer in Laguna Beach. Loved his style and prices. When we met in person, I knew my daughter would be very pleased to have him as the photographer for her wedding. We were delighted to meet his lovely assistant/wife, Britt, and welcomed them both to the after wedding luncheon.

The color and clarity of the wedding pictures are wonderful. My daughter was a stunning and happy bride. Brent captured her personality perfectly. For me, pictures are the most important aspect of the day, they provide the memories, Brent has been kind and generous.

I would without a doubt recommend him for any event where you want a stress free photography experience.

NO STIFF OR UNCOMFORTABLE POSING

Brent knows what it takes to capture those natural moments that can happen at any time. Aaron and I were a little nervous about the posing aspect of shooting but Brent really made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. The photo taking process was very relaxed and easy. There wasn’t any stiff or uncomfortable posing and Brent made our entire experience a lot of fun too!

I highly recommend Brent to couples for their wedding photographer. You want someone who can not only bring out a genuine expression for the camera but can capture that in an amazing way for beautiful wedding photos. I will be recommending all my bride to be friends over to Brent for their wedding photos.

a stress free experience

Brent was referred to us from a friend and I’m so glad we found him! Our engagement session was a lot of fun, the photos were amazing and when we met Brent we clicked with him right away. He knew exactly how to capture us with beautiful lighting and made us feel very candid and natural which I’m happy about.

Our wedding day was a stress free experience with Brent as our photographer. He stayed calm and and that made us all feel at ease. He had all the proper equipment, he was quick but didn’t feel rushed and allowed us enough tome to enjoy our wedding without it turning into a photo-shoot. All of our friends and family were comfortable with Brent and the overall experience was very pleasant. When we received our photos we were thrilled at the quality and service Brent provides.

I will be referring Brent to every engaged couple I know.

I've been a photographer for 9 years now. I started learning photography during my stay in Folkstone, England in 2005 where I studied text books in a cozy bookstore called Waterstones. In the Summer of 2009 I took a job shooting for the Dutch magazine New Life in The Hague, Netherlands. Upon my return to Southern CA I shot a handful of weddings in Los Angeles and Orange County to finish out the year.

In 2012 I did photo work for an NPO in The Philippines and Hong Kong documenting their work abroad. This year marks my 5th consecutive wedding season and I'm excited for all the amazing couples I get to work with.
