"Photos you can feel the emotion in."
"A dream to work with."
"By a landslide, the best."
Never having been on the other side of the lens before, I kept expecting vendors to treat us the way I would treat my clients. But, as soon as vendors heard the words "small, intimate, family style wedding," they ran. Our wedding wouldn't add to their portfolios. That's when I realized that there is a major difference that I never even knew existed between Brey Photo and a too large amount of other wedding vendors:
My husband, Peyton, and I did absolutely everything backwards.
He proposed to me in the sweetest way, at my mom's house on Christmas Eve. We had just moved into our house, I had just quit my career as a domestic violence case worker to launch Brey Photo full time, and we had just had a baby. Oh, and we bought a dog. In that order.
When we were first dating, Peyton told me that one of his dreams was to have his grandparents at his wedding and have them meet his children. Shortly after we got engaged, both of our grandparents' health started to decline. We realized, without much talk, that, while we wanted a beautiful wedding day, no amount of frills could replace having our grandparents by our side. We feared we really wouldn't have time to waste waiting for the perfect venue, the perfect date, the perfect anything.
So, we planned a perfectly imperfect wedding in six months. With a five thousand dollar budget. For a guest list of 180 of our closest Irish kin.
So, trust me, I know a bit about wedding stress.
Look, ultimately you hire a photographer so that you can be present in the moments that you will experience only once. That's why we take photographs— not for Pinterest, social media, or bragging rights. Having vendors that you love and who love you is SO important to the success of your day. Your photographer's technical skills should not be the only thing they provide. Hiring a photographer that you can laugh with, dance with, and hang with is how the best photos are created and it IS the difference between photos you like, and photos you will share with generations to come.
You'd think it would be awkward to kiss all over your person and have someone taking pictures the whole time but not with Aubrey... We forgot all about the camera. Any time I'd start to panic she'd be there floating around saying everything's fine. Her soft style made everything look straight out of a bridal mag."
"A dream to work with.
I can’t even begin to tell you how much more than a photographer this woman is. Every step of the way she encouraged, kept reminding me it was my day (I’m a pushover) to stand firm on what I wanted. The picturesI received are beyond amazing. I’ll be able to cherish them for the rest of my life. Pictures that you can almost feel the emotion in. She was great with my kids, easy going and so sweet. I HIGHLY recommend her. You won’t be disappointed."
"Basically my wingwoman.
