BRYNNE + TRAVIS Andrea is, hands down, the most amazing photographer out there! She took our engagement and wedding photos. After seeing our engagement pictures, I knew our wedding pictures were going to be absolutely amazing and it was SO nice to not have to worry about that on top of everything else going on during wedding planning. Andrea made us feel comfortable and acted as if she had known us forever. She directs you and knows exactly what poses will make for the best pictures :) She also brought along some absolutely amazing helpers with her on the wedding day to have some extra shooters, which I was so thankful for because I really felt like they were capturing every moment. I more than highly recommend Andrea and I plan on using her in the future for any other occasions.  PS- We just got our wedding pictures back and are swooning over all 800 of them. The wedding day was all such a blur, but it is so nice to be able to look at all of the pictures and re-live the day. THANK YOU ANDREA!!

SARAH "I love working with Andrea! She helps you feel comfortable and natural, so the shoots are creative and very fun! And I think it's one of the reasons her pictures always highlight the models' personality and uniqueness. Her photos are clean, sharp and striking. Pretty much all of us are a little self-conscious about how we look in pictures! But Andrea always makes sure you walk away with some of the best photos you'll ever have of yourself- which isn't easy!"

Q & A


When should I book you?
As soon as possible! Dates fill up quickly, and if you know you'd like to book me for your wedding date, be sure and contact me as soon as you can. We'll get together over coffee and chat about package options and if you're ready, can sign a contract the same day! 

What happens after we're booked?
Celebrate! Haha (but seriously)... I'll send you a questionnaire asking about your wedding day details, and it will help me get to know you and your future spouse a little better. I want to know if you're energetic or low key, like dark colors or bright tones. This will help me know a little about what makes you unique and be able to give you the best experience and product possible! 

Are you insured?
Yes! Many wedding venues require vendors to have general liability and equipment insurance. I'm more than happy to submit paperwork of proof of insurance to your venue. 

Can I create my own photography package?
Absolutely! I'm more than happy to help create the perfect package that fits your unique needs and wants. 

Do you have a second shooter?
Yes, I have several excellent assistants and photographers I use for many of my photography packages. You can also add one or more to any of the wedding package options if desired. 

Do you offer discounts?
There are frequently specials or discounts that you may inquire about, be sure and check the Facebook page for the most recent opportunities. I also offer military and student discounts, so just ask! 

Do you allow payment plans?
Absolutely, we can work together on a plan that works best for you and your budget. Feel free to pay all at once, monthly, or in 2 or 3 payments. Whatever works best for you. My only requirement is that half the payment be delivered 30 days before the event, and the remaining half provided at least 14 days before the event. 

What is your style?
My style is a rich combination of timeless beauty and modern romance. My images are colorful, dynamic, and genuine.  I love being able to create artistic moments and capture spontaneous events. Photography is magical in that it can stop time, and I treasure the ability to be able to use it to make memories last forever. 

 

How many photos do I get?
Some photographers charge per image, but I prefer to give you as many photos as possible that best reflect my style and most compliment you! For that reason, I don't limit the number of photos I provide, but my packages reflect the average number of photos I deliver per package. In most cases, I deliver well over the the amount stated.  

Does the client have the rights to print pictures?
Yes, each photo delivered becomes yours to print for personal use. The copyright remains with me, the photographer, but that doesn't affect you unless you want to use them for business purposes or try to sell them. 

Do you edit the photos?
Absolutely. I never deliver RAW or straight from the camera images.  

What do you shoot with?
We love Canon. All my DSLR camera bodies are Canon, as well as my second shooter's. I also have a Nikon film camera that was handed down to me by my grandfather (it was my grandmother's) that I love shooting with as well. 

Will you take requested photos or shoot from a photo shot list?
I am more than happy to take requested photos by the client. While I may not be able to capture everything a client may write on a list or request, I will do my best to capture everything that the client desires, and will always ask if there is anything specific that needs to be captured. 

Do you travel?
We LOVE to travel!! Be sure and ask about special offers for destination weddings! 

When do you deliver the photos?
I deliver the photos by your 1-month anniversary! This allows me time to perfect each image to look it's best, and also gives you something special to look forward to and celebrate 4 weeks later. 

Do you offer prints and albums?
Yes, and pricing varies depending on what you want in regards to binding, paper, and number of pages/prints. I can also do canvas, metal, or glass prints. 

Why is professional photography so expensive?
Photography is very time intensive. Only a fraction of the work is actually done during a shoot. The rest of the time is editing and perfecting the images in post-production. Typically, a 1-hour shoot has about 5 or more hours of edit time. A full-day wedding typically takes a couple weeks to process. Then, of course, there's the costs associated with running the business itself: insurance, software, cameras, computers... and all the bills of everyday life.
