MEET BRIAN

My name is Brian and hopefully we will be meeting each other soon! Until then, I would like to take a second to introduce myself on a more personal note so you too can determine if we are a good fit for one another.

You can often find me getting my snuggle on with my special four-legged pup, Millicent the innocent. I enjoy cooking up a storm in the kitchen and I am mighty fond of any recipe that requires a cast-iron skillet. The ocean is decidedly my favorite place on earth - the smell, the water and how it makes me slow down to appreciate the little moments. I love stepping (and sometimes running) outside of my comfort zone because I believe that is how we all grow - traveling, new experiences and creating more rewarding connections with the people I encounter are some of the ways I push myself everyday. 


ABOUT MY CRAFT

I am a wedding and portrait film photographer based in Portland, Oregon. It is safe to say that I love photography to my bones! I use a combination of a fine art approach and documentary style to create images that have depth, connection and a feeling of beauty. The most important thing to me when working with a couple or model is that they feel utterly comfortable and connected to that moment. I have found this state leads us both to creating the most authentic and beautiful photographs together. Those moments are truly timeless. 

I have been fortunate to study under and learn from the best wedding film photographers from around the world - namely, Erich McVey and Tec Petaja. Surrounding myself with strong creative mentors has enabled me to dive more deeply into my craft as well as inspired me to be more in-tune with my own photographic voice.
