I’ve had a camera in my hand since I was eight. My mom gave me her little point and shoot Kodak— you know, the kind from the '90s that made awful grinding noises when the lens recessed? That kind. I practiced on all the flowers in our yard, took all the Myspace photos, and captured some incredibly embarrassing selfies.
Over the course of my life, photography was my church. It has been an almost spiritual hobby for me, something that keeps me grounded and brings out the best joy. But, like most people before they take that leap, I thought it was a pipe dream to turn it into anything more than just that— a fun thing I did. Fast forward to 21, after years of traveling and soul searching, I was at a crossroads with what to do with my life. None of my "options" sounded very appealing, and nothing was making me happy.
Brey Photo was finally born in a rundown kitchen after a few PBRs with a friend. My friend looked at me and said “So, what do you really want?” And I said as a joke, “I want to be a photographer and ride a motorcycle and have a bunch of knuckle tats.” He said, "Then stop whining, and go do that." So... I did. I wish there was a better story, but 6 years later, after nothing but a loose leaf plan, really hard work, and a Facebook page, here I am; bike and knuckle tats to boot.

The experience was more like having a best friend hang out with a camera than a stranger looking at your life through the other side of a lens. I cannot express how much we love our photos. I thought the investment thing was a little corny at first, but after seeing the finished product, I'm 100% on board. Those photos really are an investment in our family memories."
When I have nightmares, they're about Aubrey or my eyebrow woman moving or shutting down shop. Do yourself a favor. Just book her."
We are absolutely obsessed... Honestly, we had spent over $4000 on our wedding photography [from another photographer]....and I was not filled with as much peace and joy by a single one of those photographs from that entire day as I am with every single photograph from Brey Photo... We are officially hooked and we NEEEEEED to work with you again soon. Come over anytime (not for photos! Even just for pancakes. Or very strong coffee and baby play time). We love you!
Aubrey is worth the price. I promise. She put so much time and effort into prep work and getting to know our story. She actually cares. I can’t imagine anyone better. She’s silly and sweet and comes ready to elicit all the emotion. The photos turned out perfectly. It’s truly artwork. She captures movement and emotion in a way that is truly breathtaking and now I have this gallery full of images that are so dang moving and perfect that I cried happy tears. I'm sure we'll be calling on her services for years to come. Book her.
Aubrey was hands down the most amazing photographer I’ve ever worked with. My husband, who is extremely shy, was a different person with her behind that lens. She made us feel so comfortable and was a professional third wheel! I cannot wait to use her for all our future milestones as a couple and eventually, as a family. Everyone loved her, and we even got sneak peek photos the next morning Aubrey, thank you!!! You are a true artist!
