"I've known Bree for a few years now. We met through mutual friends back in 2012 for the first time and stayed connected throughout the years on social media. I've watched as she explored and showcased her talent through photography and have always admired her work. I've watched her come a long way from the beginning of her career to the professional she's become today. I'm completely blown away by how much she's grown as a photographer in the time I've known her.
Going through all of the details and all of the planning for our destination wedding, we were left with the question as to whether we bring our own photographer to our destination wedding, or hire someone from Mexico where we chose to get married. We looked up local photographers in Mexico and looked at their work, we looked up photographers from home and looked at their work. I was begged by some photographers to take them with us. But after looking at their work, some looked like something I could have taken from a cell phone camera and some were so stuck in a certain style of photography that they wouldn't even listen to any of my ideas or take them into consideration. They were more concerned about getting the shots they wanted for their portfolios then they were about the satisfaction of the work and the comfort we would get as a couple with pictures we would never get to relive or retake, pictures we would be stuck with as a reminder of one of our most important days for the rest of our lives. It was important to us to find someone who would listen to our ideas and be open to them as well.
Throughout the search, I kept seeing Bree showcase her work and she was always on my radar. Every picture kept getting better and better. Her photography style shouts spontaneous and fun. Once my husband and i agreed to msg her, i couldnt figure out why it took me so long to do so. Afterall, we were being spontaneous and fun by deciding on a destination wedding ourselves. And her style fit that elegance and fun aspect we were looking for perfectly. Her range from candid shots to timeless shots was everything we knew we wanted in a photographer and the fact that we've been able to watch her grow as a photographer through the years showed us she was only going to get better with every opportunity that came her way.
I messaged Bree asking her if she would be interested in coming to mexico and told her my ideas of wanting to do a trash the dress ontop of the obvious wedding pictures everyone always gets. I knew she had never done anything like that and obviously I was nervous. But from knowing how passionate she is about her work, I knew she would treat this opportunity as her baby at the time because it was a first for her and these pictures would showcase a whole different style and open up a new door in her career. And she blew us away in Mexico. She threw ideas out to us and we threw ideas out to her and she was always accepting of them. She was willing to explore anything and everything with us. She made the experience comfortable and personable. She was amazing to work with. She fit right in with our guests and it felt like we had a friend on vacation and not just someone we hired to take our pictures. When she wasn't taking pictures she was hanging out with us at the pool or on excursions. She didn't make us feel like we had to entertain a stranger because she fit right in. There was no awkward or uncomfortable situations with her as we've come across with other photographers who are less personable.
I'm completely blown away by our pictures. We received more than we expected from her. She was able to capture everything we wanted but on a whole other level. It's been almost 5 months and I still look at my pictures and can't believe those are MY pictures. My family and friends are constantly complementing her work and her character while on the trip. I can't wait to work with her again for our family fall pictures."
In March 2017 I stood as maid of honour for my best friend's wedding in Mexico. Bree was of course brought along to be her photographer, and did an outstanding job! Not only did she do amazing with the photos she became a really good friend! It was that trip that made me realize Bree had to be my photographer for my up coming wedding that July! To say I am pleased with my wedding photos is a complete understatement. I am absolutely in love with them and I would choose Bree a million times again!
Thank you Bree!!
Photographers are arguably the vendor that you work the closest with on your wedding day. They are the vendor who will see you through every emotional step of your big day - from morning to evening. They are the vendor who has to capture those fleeting moments you feel, but can't easily quantify. They must be front and centre but still blend in.
I was hooked the moment I saw Bree-Ann's work. Her photos captured such special moments and made me feel like I was experiencing the reality behind the lens.
Bree-Ann was easy to work with right from the beginning. She answered my questions promptly and provided helpful answers.
Bree-Ann made me feel comfortable and at ease on my wedding day. She captured the typical wedding photos and had some unique ideas as well. I wore a traditional Indian bridal outfit with all of the customary jewellery. While I was getting my hair and make up done Bree-Ann took photos of the jewellery delicately draped over my bouquet. Those photos were so unexpected and ended up being some of my favourites!
From posed to natural to whimsical, everything that Bree-Ann captured was thoughtful and deliberate. I highly recommend her work and hope that she can make your day as special as she made mine!
Choosing Bree-Ann will be one of the best decisions you could make. We met her through a friend of ours destination wedding, she was with the group the entire week, capturing every moment, big or small. When we got engaged, there was no other option, we knew we wanted her to shoot our wedding. She is not only an incredible photographer but she is an incredible person, so kind & easygoing. My husband and I are NOT photogenic people, and for the most part we avoid being in front of the camera at all costs. She made us feel so comfortable, and I have to say even from my harshest critic (me hahah) we look amazing!! Wedding photos are the photos you will always look back on for the rest of your life, and she is INCREDIBLE at what she does. I had ZERO stress about our photos. I also think it is important to note, wedding days are a TOTAL BLUR and the next day when I was getting a little bit anxious that maybe I forgot to take a picture with someone, my husband gently reminded me that Bree-Ann was ALL over it, even when I was completely in my own world. I can not recommend her enough, and there are not enough stars.
