We originally hired these two for our wedding photographers. Since we were halfway across the country from them (we wanted to hire someone local to our wedding), we didn't sit down and review a proof sheet prior to hiring them. Definitely don't do that!

Thankfully, they convinced us to schedule an engagement session during the one trip we took to the area prior to the wedding. And it was a lot of fun! These two are great to hang out with and have a great ability to make their subjects smile! But...the pictures we got back were very, very strange. At least 25% of the photos had "floating head syndrome" or our heads floating in the very bottom of the picture frame and most of the photo being composed of the brick wall or other thing behind us. These photographers were supposed to be modern and edgy, but it felt like a case of bad photography dressed up as art.

We ended up cutting our losses (we'd already paid the $1000 deposit, but couldn't justify another $3300 for photographers we had to worry about missing the big moments in their quest to be "artsy") and finding another photographer that did a wonderful job.

These two may still be a good option if you have difficulty smiling for the camera (like I said, they're a blast) but make sure to do your homework! It'll save you trouble in the long run!

Also, please note that they are now based out of Lincoln, NE.

Ben and Whitney, the duo behind Brighten Photography, are in one word, awesome! They took our engagement pictures and shot our wedding day. I have yet to receive the wedding day photos, however, I can attest to the engagement pictures that they took for us a couple of months ago. Everyone loved our engagement pictures! They said that they weren't your "typical" pictures - they were different, urban and soooo us! We were very happy with the outcome. They're upbeat and sooo dope, you won't be disappointed!! We are totally looking forward to seeing our wedding day pictures and know that they will come out great!

Photography is one of the most important aspects of your wedding, but who want's to pay thousands and thousands of dollars? Ben and Whitney, the husband/wife duo that make up Brighten, are absolutely amazing at what they do and they do it for a reasonable price. They are super energetic and creative and more importantly they use their cameras to create art and not your usual wedding photos! They were a great choice and I would highly recommend them to anyone. You won't be disappointed!
