HI. HELLO. HOWDY!
I'm Brandi, sometimes known as B for short! I've had some kind of camera in my hand for over 28 years. Pretty sure my friends and I invented the selfie with those disposable cameras back in 1995! After that, I upgraded to a film camera and loved all the darkroom time I could get! I attended Herron School of Art in Indianapolis and then completely changed gears and decided to go to beauty school to help fund my paint addiction! I was a hairstylist and salon owner for nearly 20 years while building my photography business on the side. In 2017, life threw me some curveballs, I decided it was time to chase my own dreams and haven't looked back! I feel incredibly lucky to be able to do what I love every. single. day.
I am a sunset chasing, concert loving, coffee toting, mom of two crazy girls! When I am not taking pictures, you can find me taking long drives through Southwest Michigan searching for my favorite wineries/breweries/local foodie joints and listening to my favorite jams. I believe Sundays are for brunch, messy buns, and pajama pants, and that a warm summer night, a good cocktail, and live music is the happiest place on earth. My blood type is coffee....Toffee Nut, double shot or BUST!
I love photography because it captures something so fleeting you want to stop and soak it all in. Whether that moment is your wedding day or an annual family portrait, photos enable us to relive and remember experiences that come and go so quickly. The only thing we can do to make it stay a little longer is to freeze small frames of a moment in time.
My style is "get it done with a side of fun!" I'm obsessed with capturing beautiful light, unique details, and raw emotions. My ultimate goal is to create timeless photographs for you to cherish forever, while having the best day of your life!
Exuberant. Passionate. Aptitude. Three words I would describe our experience of getting to have Brandi capture some truly special moments. Brandi is someone who invests in the time she spends with you by discovering who you are, what you love in life, and about one another. She brings out the most fun and beauty in every session and situation. It’s easy to get caught up in the fast pace around you — Brandi is someone who helps you be grounded during those special moments and it shows through her craft.

Brandi was a GOD SEND for our wedding day! She is fun, kind, and a talented photographer that captured a plethora of beautiful images from our wedding day that my husband and I will cherish forever.
Brandi went above and beyond to give us stunning wedding day photography. From visiting our venue before the wedding day to asking about photographing sentimental details that had slipped my mind, she was constantly working to get the best images and to capture moments that would be important
