While Brad Smith Studios is very competent with a camera (I love all my photos!) a great quality he has which I find hard to come by in photographers is his ability to encourage and relax his subjects during the event. I originally didn't want to take bridals - I wasn't a fan of formal photo shoots. But Brad was relaxed, easygoing, and helpful during the entire shoot. It was so easy, and I ended up having a great time! Even during the wedding, I never felt like I was being hovered over or intruded upon - and neither did the guests! We barely noticed he was there, and he got some amazing shots of the night.

Brad is an amazingly hard worker, and never complains. My wedding day was long and freezing cold - most of the wedding party was complaining at times, but Brad never stopped being his encouraging, happy self. Even though it was cold, he made smiling easy!

Brad also comes to the table with a natural ability to frame great photos. My wedding location was out-of-state, he had never done photography there before, and we had a minimal amount of time for bride-and-groom photos. I was so impressed at how he actively found amazing shots, even in a new location. He was constantly coming up with new ideas, and trying out a variety of different shots. You can tell he has a passion for what he does. And our photos turned out great!

Thanks to Brad Smith Studios, I was able to get the formal shots I wanted and the natural shots I love, while spending the day having a great time. I would recommend Brad Smith Studios to anyone!
Services Used: Photography
Brad is great! He is especially good at shots of the bride and groom. I was extremely pleased with many pictures he took, especially engagement pictures. The only thing that was difficult was working with larger groups of people.
