I fell in love with photography in 1999 when I took a point and shoot camera to Peru on a missionary trip. It was then that I knew my future would include photography in some way.

I purchased better camera equipment and went to Africa in 2001. My experience there was life changing, and the images I took — breathtaking. The more I began traveling on mission trips, the more camera equipment I began to bring with me. My missionary work began to shift toward photojournalism as I spent additional time in third-world countries.

When I was married in 2006, my wife and I had a terrible experience with our “professional” wedding photographer; leaving us with only15 acceptable, and only a few really good useable images. We were not alone. After talking with some of our recently married friends, we discovered they shared our bad experience. It was then that I realized that I could offer above and beyond what any other wedding photographer could provide. This is when BROVADO WEDDINGS was born.

To date, I have traveled to more than 15 countries on photojournalism trips. The skills that I have developed as an international photojournalist – shooting in stressful, difficult, and demanding situations – is one of the many reasons my wedding photography is outstanding. I shoot to tell a story. The images I capture are designed to be timeless, and evoke the very same emotions that were felt on the day of the wedding.

Wedding photojournalism is a passion of mine, and I pray that you never let your future history go un-captured…

There is one word that describes working with Preston and Liz with Brovado Weddings - AMAZING!

We have had two engagement sessions with Preston. We just had so much fun at the first while we were in Hawaii that we just had to go again back home in Minnesota! The best part about working with Preston is that it is like working with a really good friend. To work with someone so genuine, kind and talented is truly an honor.

I have to be honest. I was nervous before our photo sessions because these photos can sometimes feel cheesy and not real. This was not the case with our photos. I feel that our photos are really representative of who we are as a couple. From rocky cliffs overlooking the ocean, to railroad tracks and lake docks, our photos are truly unique, not to mention adventurous! So Fun!. Preston put us completely at ease and it was great because we kept forgetting there was a camera there!

We are so excited and feel so honored that Preston will be there with us on our wedding day capturing all the beautiful moments of what will be one of the most important days of our lives.

Cheers to more of life's little (and BIG) adventures!

We just had our engagement photos with Preston a few weeks ago. It was great! I came up with the place, the classic spot of the Stone Arch Bridge, and he knew exactly where to go to get great shots! I now wish I would have picked a different spot just because I do realize how many other people usually pick that same spot... poor Preston, always having to shoot to the same spot. But, with that being said, he did a GREAT job of making our engagement pictures not look like anyone else's. Ours still turned out unique and artistic, just the way I wanted them and my number one requirement for a photographer. A solid photographer was my number one request for our wedding events, and we got one!

Now, my fiance on the other hand, was not looking forward to taking pictures, and a wedding photographer was on the bottom of his list. He thought we could have just anyone take our pictures... some boys, I tell ya! Well, you know what they say, happy wife, happy life! I got my way, so my fiance had to come along for pictures. He was really glad he did because he had a FANTASTIC time and raved about it for days after. Him and Preston hit it off right away! We had soooooooo much fun! Preston knew exactly where to take us, how to direct us for each shot, keep us laughing and in high spirits the whole time. My fiance and I are both very excited to take more pictures for our wedding and work with Preston again! I would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer with a great personality and a wonderfully artistic eye. As you can see from his work, Preston does a great job of getting a mix of landscape shots and close up shots of you and still manages to frame the shots just right and pack them full of colors and contrasts. All of which, in my mind, make up perfect pictures!

I can’t say enough amazing things about working with Preston. He was super easy to work with and very flexible. Immediately when we sat down to meet him, we felt comfortable with his down to earth personality. We told him we wanted our wedding photos to appear fun and natural- nothing too staged and he immediately understood what we were looking for. We loved that he allowed us to customize our photography-wedding package and tailor it more to our needs, which other people were not willing to do. We ended up working with Preston at our engagement party and on our wedding day. He made an extra effort to captured special moments for us at our engagement party that we would not have otherwise had.
On my wedding day, Preston made the biggest difference. He came early with his team, scoped out my venue and was familiar with the most gorgeous surrounding areas for amazing pictures both inside and outdoors. Preston made us feel so comfortable from the beginning. He gave us advice to just have fun with our day. Initially, we thought we were going to be exhausted from pictures and it was going to end up looking posed and forced. But, thinking back, I never had to fake a smile. We took Preston’s advice and had fun! More importantly, it felt like we were taking pictures with our friend, not someone we hired. Preston used his creativity to set us up for the most amazing pictures with incredible scenery and we laughed throughout all of our photos. Preston made sure my husband and I were taken care of- he came prepared with water and small snacks, which really came in handy!! They went above and beyond our expectations!
The Brovado team was so organized, worked seamlessly with everyone involved and helped make our day totally stress free! I am so lucky to be able to say I wouldn’t have changed anything about my wedding day, and I know I have Preston and his team to thank for so much of that! If you are debating about Brovado, I would recommend choosing them!

PRESTON IS AMAZING!!! The Brovado Weddings team is the perfect wedding photography company for anyone! He originally shot our engagement photos, and then our wedding!

Just look at any of Preston's work and it says it all. His skill and talent completely blew me away. His Wedding photography is absolutely extraordinary. When I saw his photojournalist work on his blog I knew this was the ONLY photographer I wanted to hire. His work rivals the gorgeous photographic art only found in National Geographic. To be able to find a photographer with such incredible talent, that specializes in weddings is truly amazing. Our wedding was on a beach and the weather that day was nothing short of incredible. This only added to Preston's creative abilities. Preston was able to capture ASTONISHING photos with the unbelievable weather. Preston will capture your memories the way they were meant to be. Compare his work to any other Wedding photographer and you will know why.

Preston Palmer of Brovado Weddings is an amazing photographer and we are so happy with how our wedding pictures turned out.

He was a dream on our wedding day--looking back he acted more as wedding coordinator extraordinaire than just a photographer. He kept me calm all day, answered any wedding questions or problems the wedding party had, and genuinely made everything run smoother than it would have otherwise.

The pictures he took are stunning! He spent the whole day with us--from the bridal salon at 8 am to dancing late into the night. He caught everything on film and we love looking back at the memories.

Our only complaint was that it did take a few months to get our pictures back, because it was during the busy wedding season. But they were definitely worth the wait! He recently did another friends wedding and got the pictures back to them within a few weeks--so it definitely was just the timing of our wedding that caused the delay.

We are so glad we went with Brovado Weddings for our big day!

I do not have enough good things to say about Brovado Weddings and my photographer Preston Palmer. Preston was on time, fit in so well with my friends and family, and was more than well prepared. I'm pretty shy and a little uptight and he made me feel super comfortable and very special. You don't really realize how much of your wedding day is spent with your photographer (hint *its more time than you spend with your spouse) but it becomes really important to have someone that helps you enjoy your day. I thought I couldn't be happier with Preston until my pictures arrived. Now I am thrilled. My pictures are beautiful and they capture the essence of the day so well. He didn't miss a beat. I have gotten so many compliments on the photography and my friends are convinced that the pics should be in a bridal magazine (that is all due to preston, not me or my hubbie). Preston also made us amazing and unique thank you cards. I HIGHLY recommend Brovado Weddings.
