Planning your wedding is such an exciting season. But you know that it is just that, a season. That this part goes by all too quickly. Your wedding is just one day, but your marriage is for a lifetime! That's why planning this day is so incredibly important to you, you know it is just a beginning! You have your date and venue, and now, you need a photographer.

I understand the work that goes into creating this special day. And when the day is over, you will walk away with your groom, your dress, and your photos. That's it. That is why choosing a photographer is such an important decision!

As your photographer, I want to do more for you than just create beautiful images. Though that is incredibly important. I want you to relax and enjoy your special day knowing that I am at work capturing each emotion, embrace, and every little detail you have specifically and lovingly selected!

The Brianna Joy Bride is extremely special. She is madly in love and complete adores and respects her fiancé. She doesn't mind being playful, sweet, and romantic with him- the love of her life! She is detail-oriented but knows she doesn't always have to sweat the little things.

My brides recognize that if she wants joyful, fun, and timeless portraits of her and her handsome new hubby then she needs more than someone who can take good photos, she needs a photographer that will provide an incredible experience from start to finish and a connection with her photographer that is based on trust and common goals!

your wedding day

After you are booked, you will begin by planning your engagement session. When you have booked that you will receive an exclusive Bridal Guide as well as an Engagement Session Style Guide. This will help you pick and plan the outfits for your engagement photos as well as choosing a location and so much more. You will also receive a vendor list to help you book: hair, make up, and nail appointments with some of the best around Billings! As we get closer to your wedding day, we will discuss your timeline. About 8 weeks before your date, you will also receive a Questionnaire, this tells me exactly where we are meeting day of and all the details. This dives deeper into helping me get to know you and the specifics I need to know about your date, venue, and more! Then, before you know it, your wedding day is here!

The day has arrived! YAY!!!
When I first arrive, we will catch up a little bit and then I will start photographing your details (the dress, shoes, flowers, etc.) This is a great way for me to just get warmed up and then the day goes on from there! I will help you every step of the way. Just take a deep breath and try to take it all in, it goes so fast.

albums

6 to 8 weeks after your wedding day, your photos will be ready! I send my wedding galleries to you via an online gallery. This provides easy access for you to view and share your images. Through your gallery, there is also a shopping cart where you can order prints and products easily for yourself and family and friends.

back to the start

If you invest in an album during booking, this is when we will begin the design process. I will send you an initial design for you to look over, typically my clients love this initial design I put together and we can place your order after your approval. However, there are times when some tweaks need to be made, like swapping out different images. After I am given final approval, I will place the order for your legacy album. If you didn't invest in an album at booking, but now decide you want one or would like to have one to give as a Christmas gift to parents or grandparents, this is the perfect time to do so! If you are an out of town bride, albums will be shipped directly to you! If you are local to my area, then I will deliver the album to you myself when it comes in!

 I love being both interactive and discreet throughout the wedding day. There will be parts of the wedding day when I will need to be more in control in order to accomplish everything that needs to be done while staying on schedule. There will also be moments when you shouldn’t even know that I’m there. (The ceremony, during dances and toasts, etc.) I teach my couples how to pose, model, and interact during their engagement session so they are naturals on the wedding day and don’t need quite as much instruction from me!

what is your shooting style?

I am often asked if 8 hours is enough time to capture the full wedding story and the answer is yes, most of the time! My main goal right now is securing and saving your date. We can always add additional coverage as we get closer to the big day and have a good idea of what your timeline will be.


will 8 hours be enough to capture our entire day?

I am more than willing to travel for engagement sessions! I actually love it when my couples ask me to photograph them in a location that means something special to them! I book engagement sessions at least two months in advance and 30 miles of travel are included.

Details & Investment

grace

“Bri did a great job at catching moments where I felt like myself, it sounds strange, but in all the photos that she took I look like I’m being myself and not “posing” which I love. I also could seriously see her light up while taking photos. I love how passionate she is. Bri was so encouraging and empowering. She can catch those special moments of confidence in your photos and that paired with her eye for the editing makes these pictures my favorite pictures of myself!”

rachel

“Bri is so good at encouragement and listening! She made me feel so pretty in my pictures and listened to all my requests AND everything I shared with her. She was more of my friend than my photographer! I loved that she made me a personal playlist and we were jamming out to my favorite music and she formed a relationship with me before our session so I felt more comfortable being around her and being myself!! She’s just the best at capturing the candid moments! She took some really sweet pictures when I didn't even know you were paying attention! And those are some of my favorites!”

avery

"Bri is such a sweet person who is very talented at what she does! She took the time to get to know me, and it was a really fun experience. Sometimes it feels awkward when you’re posing for someone when they’re taking your picture, but I felt the complete opposite when Bri was taking my pictures! She will direct you, so you do not have to be an experienced model by any means. I 10/10 recommend reaching out to her, you won’t regret it! And, you’ll get some super cool pictures done!"

hanna

“Bri is definitely the best at boosting confidence! After our session I felt amazing and beautiful! And definitely her editing skills and capturing the best photos! I enjoyed literally every second, even in the cold! She was just so bubbly and made the session amazing and I felt like even if I had no clue what poses I needed to do she’s help show it :) Bri is best at definitely making everyone feel comfortable! She knew what poses for me to do and made the vibe of it amazing and fun!”
