Amazing photos, especially considering a toddler who was absolutely opposed to sitting still!

My husband and I got married on May 18, 2019 and Brad was our photographer. As soon as I started wedding planning, I knew I wanted to have Brad as our photographer as he has photographed so many peoples special life events that my husband and I know and his work is amazing. After initially reaching out to Brad, he wanted to set up a FaceTime call with us to get to know us better before we booked him and for us to do the same. He was so personable and professional and my husband and I knew we had to book him immediately. Over the course of the following year, Brad would check in with me to see how planning was going and provided me with templates and examples to use to plan our photographer shot list and “Run of Show” for the wedding. I was my own wedding planning, so this helped me out so much! A month or so before our wedding (we live in different states so only time we could coordinate to do this) Brad met with us and we did a walk through of all of the possible places we could get photos in the day of our wedding. It really helped me visualize what I wanted and it was nice to spend quality time with our photographer and for us all to feel comfortable working with each other. Brad went above and beyond the entire year before our wedding and it didn’t stop there! On the evening of our rehearsal, Brad attended to understand how the flow of the ceremony would be and ultimately took on the role of photographer and wedding coordinator. My husband and I along with our wedding party really had no clue how the rehearsal was supposed to go and for the first 20+ minutes were all just standing around (our venue didn’t provide an organizer). As soon as Brad got there he took the lead and lined up people and gave pointers to when everyone should walk in per our music and really saved the evening! To follow our rehearsal Brad even came to our rehearsal dinner and photographed all those special moments and got to know our family and friends. Brad did not have to come to the rehearsal dinner as this was not something we paid him to do, but he yet again went above and beyond and ended up providing us with a sleuth of additional photos I will cherish forever! On the day of our wedding Brad hit the nail on the head again and surpassed all of our expectations. The photos Brad took were exceptionally beautiful and showcased the love my husband and I have so well. He was so easy to work and stayed later upon our request to photograph more of our reception. Brad is the best photographer I have ever met. His work is top notch and he goes out of his way to make sure your special day runs effortlessly.My cousin (who was in my wedding party) is getting married in 2020 and both her and her fiancé were so impressed with Brad that they have now booked him for their wedding! Both my husband and I would recommend Brad to anyone looking for a photographer to capture beautiful photos of a special moment or moments in their lives! More...

Are you looking for a photographer who is friendly, funny and flexible, makes you feel at ease and cares deeply about you loving your photos? This is your guy. As an art director for a magazine, I have hired Brad time and time again, and have been thrilled with the results. Not only does he follow through on every request I make, he goes above and beyond to get the shot, and offers excellent suggestions for composition. Brad has also taken our family photos. From my modest Mother and reserved Father, to my clowning husband (who doesn't like to have his picture taken) and a set of twins, Brad is immediately a friend to all. So grateful to have found such a talented, local photographer. I just don't know when he sleeps! More...

Brad is a one of a kind photographer! He took the time to really get to know me and my husband, plus our family dynamics, in order to make our day perfect! Everyone I talk to that attended my wedding (and just from seeing pictures on Facebook) comments on him and how great of a job he did! Brad is the first photographer I met with when I was in search of one for my wedding and I met with no other photographers after! I will be using Brad for all of my photography needs in the future!

Brad was our photographer for our wedding and completely exceeded my expectations and truly made our day memorable. Brad has a gift for making everyone feel comfortable and keeping the mood uplifting and joyous. He’s incredibly talented at capturing natural candid moments while also delegating poses for amazing photos. I cannot express how happy we are with Brad’s work and are looking forward to having him photograph our daughter! More...

Brad has been my go to photographer for years now. I love getting to collaborate with him for fun fashion shoots and make memories with family shots. He is amazing to work with and has me cracking up the whole time. He makes shooting a breeze and you honestly forget your being photographed! More...

I was fortunate enough to be a part of some dear friend's Marriage in Frederick, MD and Brad did one of the most phenomenal jobs, not only as a photographer but almost as a choreographer! His images are amazing and I would consider myself very lucky to have him do work for me at my next event. More...

Again, thank you so much for being a part of Megan and Cole's wedding. You are so talented and you make everyone feel relaxed and actually enjoy having their picture taken. What I have seen so far, the photos are spectacular... and can only imagine what is yet to come. You went far and above whatever we may have asked of you, and for that, we say a big Thank You. You are the best! More...

Brad shot our wedding last weekend, and OMG! He is amazing! He seemed to be having an absolute blast working with us, and we had so much fun with him. He is genuinely awesome, and goes the extra mile to get amazing pictures. I am truly blown away at his samples alone. It's obvious this is what he loves to do, and he made it so special for us. He captured so many special moments, and then some. We can't thank Brad enough!! More...

Brad is an amazing photographer that is local to our area. We've been to many weddings where he has been the photographer and fell in love with his work! When my fiance and I got engaged it was no question we would be using Brad! He is flexible, open to ideas, and is genuinely excited about each and every opportunity to take wonderful pictures. Brad is extraordinary in all he did for us as a couple. We kept in contact to discuss what we wanted to see on our wedding day, what was expected, etc. Brad truly worked to produce the vision we had for the ceremony and reception. He stepped in and ran our rehearsal so my now husband and I could focus on the ceremony. The day of the wedding Brad did everything from flower-girl wrangling, keeping me (as the bride) calm, entertaining my bridesmaids by doing yoga in the hotel room, being a gift delivery man to my groom, being a liaison between the event coordinator/DJ/bride/groom and wow-ing the guests with his overall awesome abilities, all while taking beautiful pictures!! There is much more that could be said about Brad, but not enough time or space. Overall, Brad is AMAZING. He is now our official family photographer. Hire this man before he is too busy! More...

My husband and I had this crazy idea of planning a wedding... in under 6 months. Right away, the most important thing to me was capturing all of our amazing moments through photographs. Brad was recommended to me by a friend/work associate. We liked Brad instantly. He made everything easy. His prices were super affordable, and he was exceptionally flexible. It was also very clear that he cared about us, beyond just the photos. He even stepped up and practically ran out rehearsal when no one knew what to do. The day of, Brad was a ninja. He not only took amazing photos, but managed to include nearly all the guests, and continuously made sure I was taken care of.
I was overwhelmed with the quality of my photos... and there were so many!! I don't have enough walls to frame all of the photos I love! I would wholeheartedly recommend Brad to anyone and everyone. We will certainly continue to use him for all our future needs.

I had a maternity/family photo shoot with Brad today and I can't express how phenomenal it was to work with him. He made me feel incredibly comfortable and confident, and his warm personality had us smiling naturally the entire time. He was full of great suggestions and gave direction very well, but he was also wonderful at capturing what came naturally to us. I've already seen some samples from the shoot and I am beyond impressed with his gorgeous images. He captured the love of my family beautifully, and was especially great with my rambunctious toddler! I would highly recommend his services to anyone who is seeking an incredible photographer! More...

I was lucky enough to meet Brad at a wedding that we were both working. While I was doing hair & makeup he amazed me... not only was he being a fantastic photographer but he was totally working the room. Keeping the Bridal party entertained, being a constant clock ect. Anyway his actions stuck in my head, so when I wanted some special photos of my wild children he came right to mind. We had a wonderful experience, he had amazing patience and was willing to be as silly as he needed to keep their attention (which is not easy). Even w/their limited attention span & patience for photos Brad captured some amazing moments! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience! I look forward to having you capture more memories in the future & hopefully working more weddings together too :) More...

We have used Brad over the years for family photo shoots and I’ve used him for professional photos for my company’s website.

Brad is great. He’s so patient with kids and they respond well to him. My kids we’re probably 5 & 3 the first time he shot them and now they’re 10 & 8 and his ability to establish a rapport with them has not changed over the years.

When he shot the pictures for my company he was equally as easy to work with. I appreciated that he brought a creative element to the corporate world.

His prices are very reasonable and his turnaround time is great. I highly recommend Brad.

Our family had not had professional photos taken in about 12 years. Once I met Brad I knew it was time to take new photos and he would be the perfect fit for our family. Brad managed our group of 13 people very well. He is creative and professional. We loved the photos that he took for us. Not only is Brad good at what he does, he is also a lot of fun. He put everyone at ease immediately and made the session so enjoyable. That came through in the photos. We have great family photos to cherish for a lifetime. More...

I was fortunate enough to snag a holiday mini shoot just last week with the amazing Brad. This is the first time I've done photographs outside of a chain studio and I'll never step foot back into another one. (JCPENNEY, Sears, picture people) Brad will be the one I call for any photo needs. His unique and friendly personality and fantastic ability to capture memories of my daughter and I is what will have us coming back for more. He is kind, funny, and super accommodating. Frederick is so lucky to have him as a local photographer! He is a huge asset to our community. See you in the spring Brad! Thanks again for the beautiful pictures. More...

By the time I woke up the next morning I already had a link provided to see my pictures! They were stunning! Brad is a great guy, very friendly, sweet, knowledgeable and AMAZING at what he does! I couldn't imagine anyone else doing photos for us again! More...
