My husband and I eloped in Italy with no family in attendance so selecting a fantastic photographer was very important to us in order to capture the day to share with our families when we returned and also to have a fun person to spend the day with. We could not have picked a better person than Bret for the job. Our photos turned out amazing and we couldn't be happier. Bret was super easy to work with and we really enjoyed our time with her in Italy. I highly recommend her to all my friends looking for a photographer.

Bret was amazing! Our wedding photos turned out beautiful. Her work is timeless and classic. Not only is she a great photographer, but she is also very professional at weddings. She is a very calm person, which kept me calm on my wedding day. I can't express how much we loved Bret as our wedding photographer and how happy we were with the photos. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a good photographer. We look forward to using her again for other events in our future!

Bret Cole is a top notch photographer. She is incredibly talented and professional. She provided us everything and more than we asked for. I have to hand it to her....originally I didn't want any additional time spent away from the group for pictures after the ceremony, but she took my husband and I for a few moments for a private photo shoot. We didn't realize how special these moments would be. We needed the down time and those minutes to hold, hug and relax in our love together. The photos turned out incredible. They are priceless as well as our memories of that beautiful day.

Bret was amazing on our wedding day. She and her assistant were nice, cool, down to earth ladies, which mattered a lot because they spent almost the whole wedding day close by, getting great shots. I think they made me, the wedding party, and guests feel very comfortable with being photographed. I loved her style in the photos when we got to see them all. Great candids, very talented at capturing the happiness and beauty of the day. I would definitely recommend her. She was easy to work with, professional, and produced beautiful results.
