wandering the desert, finding moments & capturing love.
southern california raised- absolutely obsessed with all the feels
you can call me, Bri!
Coachella Valley local since '92 and I have been living and loving in the desert sun for over 25 years with 10+ years of experience as a published photographer. I have the privilege of raising four remarkable souls with the love of my life the last 12+ years.
I am so thrilled you are interested in knowing a bit more about me and my process!
Let's just start with the truth, I AM NOT GOING TO BE SHY.
I am real. I am connected. I am passionate.
My name is Brianne but many call me Bri. I am Washington born and Cali raised.
Getting even more personal...I am a doberman mom who is obsessed with "The Office" and, in all honestly, a total goofball.
For me, photography is an emotional and creative outlet for my heart and soul.
To be able to create and draw out the emotions of others to capture in time is an INSANE PRIVILEGE I enjoy passionately.
My photography is more then just a snap shot of a moment, I am "in it" with you and am able to find your emotions to forever capture them in time.
No matter the session type it's an absolute must for me that you and yours are completely comfortable in front of me, especially maternity shoots, couples and of course weddings.
To feel an ability to be your best self creates an atmosphere of authentic emotion, raw honesty and trust that allows me to get your images to come alive.
In my intimate sessions I not only get your those artsy posed shots but I also diligently hunt and find the precious emotion filled candids in your moments that
can be easily missed by the untrained eye.
To me, celebration events and weddings are all about fun and capturing the love....so, if you are okay with me getting down with you and yours, remembering your cousins names and most likely hugging your grandma, I just might be the photographer you are looking for.
If my style doesnt sound like a good fit, that is OKAY!
I want you to find exactly what you are looking for and not mislead you in anyway on the level of communication, connection and
value of the photography experience I provide to my clients. BUT PLEASE REMEMBER, Your special day is irreplaceable and research to find the right photographer for you is vital to ensure your days outcome. Your photographer will not only be controlling the visual representation of your day but will also be present for your milestone as an active role and energy in creating your special day. So, If you are looking to invest in your experience, to connect and create, as well as have a blast in process, I must implore you to come and have an adventure with me. Things have tendencies in this crazy life to not work out as planned every time (imagine that....). Families are not perfect by any sense, babies don't always smile, the weather man isn't always right. Leaving us with a choice to either cry or dance in the rain. Hiring me is a commitment to dance in the rain and make those irreplacable memories. To face anything thrown our way gracefully, together, as we celebrate you and your life's story unfolding just as it should.
I would be honored to get to know you and yours to help you create tangible memories that will forever bring you and your loved ones closer.
Don't settle for the same basic shots, let me find and capture those authentic feels and emotional moments you don't ever want to forget!
