Don’s career as a photographer all started when he met the love of his life Jill; she saw in Don a hidden talent with the camera, which later became a passion for artistic photographic storytelling. They married in 1998 and with a little help $$ (a lot actually) from Jill’s mom Jean, they formed D. Bryant Photography.

They are now a full time studio photographing weddings (mostly) and the occasional family portrait. Don and Jill’s approach to photography is on a very personal level; to connect as best they can with the families and make them feel as comfortable as possible. The resulting images are a testament telling the true story of what happened on the wedding day. When they are not working on the weekends, Don and Jill can be found hanging out with their 4-year-old son Jack or dancing around the yard with their 7-year-old little girl Anna Bo and Daisy the beagle.

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards, Video Montage
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Multiple lighting, natural lighting, some hand coloring of images per customer request and of course my favorite, dense contrasty black and whites! There's something timeless about a black and white image!
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
We have photographed weddings in almost every possible lighting scenario from candlelight, rainy, night, and the most flattering of all light in my opinion, overcast.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We exclusively use digital cameras now; Canon to be specific.
How many photographers do you work with?
One photographer and one assistant will be assigned to each wedding.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Absolutely. If the bride books with me she gets me and my wife. We have another wonderful husband/wife team who shoot for us - Jeannine and Brian Frest. We generally have the bride and groom meet and book with the photographer who will be covering their wedding.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
A wedding can be mental and physical marathon for the both the photographer and the bride and groom. I cannot imagine doing more than one wedding per day; would just be too much. I want to devote all my mental and physical resources to one bride only on any given day.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
In my mind there is no such thing as becoming un-available on the wedding day. The only excuse would be my untimely death (God forbid). We do, however, belong to a wonderful community of like-minded photographers with similar styles who would jump at the opportunity to help this fellow colleague/photographer in case of emergency. I am proud to be associated with some of the best photographers in the country in my opinion.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Multiple camera bodies, an assortment of very fast and long focal length lenses and some of the best flash systems and light modifiers around. Oh, and plenty of batteries! Should the batteries die, we simply plug in.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes...absolutely. I would not think of covering a wedding day without ample backup equipment.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Our wedding day collections offer a number of hours; depends of the package the bride and groom choose. I might also mention that we are very flexible and would never leave a bride hanging on her wedding day for any reason.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Should the need arise, and according to our contract, we charge $150 per hour.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
None. If we're lucky enough to have a good drive from the church to the reception, this is considered our break.
Do you charge for travel?
If we are hired to cover a destination wedding, travel and expenses are negotiated in the package.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Typically one to two weeks. However, we update our blog every Monday so you will likely see a few pics and a slideshow a couple days after the wedding.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
We partner with Pictage, so the initial proofs are posted on a secure website for the folks to view. Started in 2009, the bride and groom will also receive a lo-res image disc to fuel the need for Facebook, MySpace, email, etc.. 
 
 Some of our package also include a number of paper 4x6 "First Edition Prints".
How long can the client keep the proofs?
"First Edition Prints" are yours to keep forever.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Hi res images are available to our clients.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes. We are very proud of our work and want to show the world!
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
See comments above...
Will images be available for viewing online?
YES!
What kind of albums do you offer?
Flush mount collage style and traditional matted albums all bound in premium leather. We also offer smaller coffee table books which can be purchased in the event Pictage website.
When will the client get the final album?
Once the design is approved by the bride and groom, 6-8 weeks for delivery of the finished album during non holiday times.

I love my wedding photos! Don and his wife took wonderful pictures, they caught all of the important moments and the editing is perfect. All of my pictures look very natural and show individual personality. Don was able to get all of the pictures we wanted, and I barely knew he was there. His wife was fabulous, she was like my assistant, my dress bustle broke at the beginning of our reception and she went to go get her sewing kit!!!
I would highly recommend D Bryant Photography for wedding photos because he is reasonably priced, he is a very talented photographer, and he and his wife are the nicest people. Also, his website is very easy to work with.

Our wedding photos by D Bryant Photography can be described as nothing less than completely BREATH TAKING. Don's talent, artistic eye and experience truly set him apart from the sea of wedding photographers that exist in today's marketplace. I knew from the second I looked at Don's work that he was truly special and just had to have him shoot our wedding. Second to marrying my husband, having Don shoot our wedding was the biggest blessing of the day. He works so efficiently, never missing a special moment or a beautiful back drop, all while capturing your vision with each photo. Don and his wife Jill are wonderful and professional individuals to surround yourself with on a busy and hectic day. I've never seen myself look so beautiful in photographs and that is thanks to Don and Jill for posing us in such flattering and romantic positions, bringing and setting up their own lighting everywhere we went, Jill always working my dress train and veil and Don 's extensive knowledge of all things photography. I encourage all the brides out there to look at my album on Don's website and Facebook page (Gailey and Doug- May 31, 2014) and see the MAGIC that happens when you let go and place your trust in Don. Oh yeah, you also get your pictures very quickly after the wedding (and we had over 1300 images) which is just icing on the cake! Thank you Don for capturing timeless, romantic and beautiful images that I will hold close to my heart for the rest of my days.

We loved Don's work and when we met him we realized how knowledgeable he was in his field. My now husband and I met in Philly, but currently live in Ellicott City, MD. We wanted to get engagement shots in the city that we met and Don and his wife were up for the trip, which we thought was really really cool.
Our wedding day was really rushed but Don got a TON of shots that turned out impeccable. It was a very hot day, but Don kept his cool and got pretty creative.
He was invisible when he needed to be, but didn't miss a memorable shot. He was so professional, friendly and accommodating to all of our guests, family members and bridal party.

Don and his wife Jill are truly the most amazing photographers and anyone in the DC area would be crazy not to use them. There aren't enough words to use here to describe how brilliant Don's work is and how effortless all his pictures look. At the end of your wedding what's really left to last and keep the memories, are your wedding photos and thanks to Don we can remember for the rest of our lives how beautiful and fun our wedding was. I'm the last bride alive who probably wanted her photo taken but Don had such a way of making it fun and engaging me in the process and most importantly he captured perfectly how much my husband and I love each other and how happy we are. Even my brother in-law who lives in PA wants to use him for his wedding! A million thanks to Don for capturing every moment of our wedding for us to always look back on and smile.

D Bryant Photography responded with the following comments:

Thank you Cortni.. it's definitely goes both ways. When a couple is as willing as the two of you were on such a nasty day to head out in the rain... it allows me to step outside the box of routine and capture something truly unique. All of you were great to collaborate with on your day!

Don and Jill did such a fabulous job capturing so many wonderful moments on our wedding day. It's so much fun to look through the pictures because now I get to see moments I missed on the big day and relive the others. They were a joy to work with throughout the whole process - easy communication via email, always had good ideas without being pushy, and perfect service on the wedding day. Engagement photo session was fun too, even for the groom! Booking D Bryant is an absolute must!

When we met with Don he told us that the pictures he takes will tell "our story". He was so right - he and his wife Jill did exactly that. When we look at our pictures now, it is like walking through the day over and over again. That feeling is priceless. As I said both Don and Jill are genuine people who enjoy the work that they do! I would highly recommend D. Bryant Photography!!!

Don and his wife Jill were fantastic to work with. The pictures could not be more beautiful. Every family and friend who has viewed the pictures has commented on Don's work. He brings his approach as an artist to the wedding, so that you get all of the must-have shots, but they are done in a way that is unique and classic - all at the same time. Don was also extremely quick in sharing pictures with us. We had a 2 and a half minute video montage to share with friends and family within days after the wedding. The final pictures became available while we were still on our honeymoon! Lots of my friends who are already married commented on how quickly we got our pictures.

I cannot give Don enough praise for his pictures! During my wedding planning in 2010, I knew that my photographer would be crucial in making my wedding memorable! Don and Jiill (his wife/assistant) were absolutely amazing during my whole day! When I saw my wedding pictures, I started crying. It brought me back to my most important day in my life! Almost a year later, I still look at my pictures and can't believe how wonderful they are! Thank you so much Don and Jill!

I can't write enough positive things about Don and Jill (his wife and assistant). They were both wonderful to work with, not to mention the GORGEOUS pictures that came from the event. The camera wasn't noticeable in the least throughout the ceremony, and family pictures at the church afterwards were quick and efficient, without leaving anybody out. The bridal party shots were also quick enough to get us all back to the reception in good time (long enough to take a deep breath and have a drink before announcements), but still astoundingly creative. Throughout the reception, the camera (once again) was hardly noticeable, but we still got great shots.

Don and Jill arrived early, helped out wherever they could, and even set up a laptop with some preliminary shots of the ceremony and bridal party for guests to peruse during the reception.

Thanks both for an awesome time - can't wait to see the rest of the pictures!!

Don is an amazing photographer! He is very quick with his responses to emails and phone calls and very helpful with decision making. His eye for creatives shots is incredible. One thing many people commented on during our wedding was that our photographer was everywhere and was capturing all of the special moments. Our engagement pictures turned out wonderfully, and I can't wait to see our wedding photos. Don is wonderful to work with and I would HIGHLY recommend him!

Don and Jill were delightful to work with, they obviously love what they do, and Don is a true artist.

Don's photos are wonderfully creative, showcasing the best aspects of the wedding location (Londontown Historic Gardens), the weather and of course the reason for the day....the Bride and Groom! Check out his web page blog to see his artistry first hand!

LOVE the 'details'!!!! Have received so many emails from family/friends about this very unique aspect!

And setting up the lap top slide show of pix during the reception was really neat - LOVED hearing the 'ooh's' and 'aaahs' from our guests!

Don truly captured the spirit of the day in his photos....creating the most wonderful memories!

The only downfall was that I wish we had have more time to take more pictures, there were so many pictures we wanted that we just didnt squeeze it but that was not Don's fault.

Don is just awesome. The team of Don and Jill is awesome. I agree with another reviewer that if you are getting married at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club you must book him. He knows every angle, every sun movement, and every way to get the most amazing shots possible. Both Don and Jill were so great to work with. They were full of helpful tips, compliments, suggestions and fun ideas for photos. Jill helped put on my veil, and helped keep the kids' eyes at the camera. Don worked his angles and created the most amazing photos that I am constantly receiving compliments on. I just don't think you can find a better photographer in the Annapolis area. I highly recommend D. Bryant.

It was a pleasure having the opportunity to work with Don and Jill. D Bryant was our photographer for both our engagement and wedding pictures. We have great shots from the formal poses that the family expected to fun pictures that reminded my family of pictures you would see in a magazine. He was easy to work with, makes sure you look your best, and we love our pictures. Thank you!

I needed to connect with my photographer, as I dont feel comfortable in front of a camera. Don made me feel at ease and both my husband and I felt the chemistry instantly at our engagement photo session. With Don what you see is what you get. A funny, energetic, talented, creative, professional, artistic type of guy. He somehow finds a way to capture every detail of your big day without disrupting the party. He literally creates scenery's and will turn your cloudy day into a cool and hip sunset! I can't say enough about his work. If you're getting married at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club you HAVE TO book him. He knows all the coordinators, the layout of the venue, soup to nuts, his experience working at this location truly helps and will blow you away! My guests adored him, my wedding party thought he was halarious...all involved absolutely loved him. 13 months of planning a wedding and it's all over in the blink of an eye. Luckily, I have beautiful pictures now to reflect on and cherish my awesome day with. Thanks Don, you rock!

Don Bryant is simply the best. Along with his wife Jill, and assistant Craig, they made our wedding day absolutely magical. His energy is infectious and his creativity is amazing. He has such a huge heart and genuinely cares about capturing each beautiful moment on your special day. Our pictures are absolutely gorgeous and my new husband and I can?t stop looking at them! All of our other vendors commented on how awesome our photographers were, and how wonderful they were to work with. We couldn?t agree more - we would highly, highly recommend D. Bryant and we hope all of our friends use him in the future!

Don and Jill photographed our wedding over Labor Day Weekend this year and we could not have asked for anything more! They captured our wedding day through some absolutely incredible photos. They are professional, fun, energetic, and have a contagious spirit of enthusiasm. We have spent countless hours going through every photo (multiple times), reliving our wedding day all over again. The photos are truly breathtaking and bring back all of the wonderful emotions of the day. Our friends and family have made a point of telling us how fantastic the photos were and that we had chosen an amazing photographer - they were absolutely right! Photos are some of the only tangible evidence of our wedding we will carry with us over the years, so choosing a great photographer was very important. We couldn't be happier with how our wedding photos (and the day itself!) turned out and we could never thank Don and Jill enough for all they did to make it happen.

Don is amazing! I am in love with his work. It is so artistic and revealing. On our wedding day...our personalities clicked so well and it was a blast working with him. He knows what angles work and what lighting will have that wow factor. I could not be happier with our wedding pictures. They are beyond beautiful. Don, Jill and Craig were so much fun to work with and really love what they do. I would definitely recommend him. His work speaks for itself...no need to clutter it with words. I recommend checking out his blog to really see how creative he is.

Wendy Hickock was my photographer through D Bryant. She was amazing! She was very professional and calm and kept her good humor throughout a crazy long day. She actually was able to display some of the shots she took at the ceremony at the reception that night. Our guests loved being able to see some of the photos right away. Everyone loved her and I would highly recommend. I actually preferred having her rather than Don (though he is a great photographer as well)!

D. Bryant was the most wonderful photographer I could have chosen. I had seen his work for a friend's wedding and when the time came for my wedding, his work was at a level of quality far beyond that of any other photographer I considered. For that reason, I chose him even though he was a little outside of my budget, but it was worth every penny. His photographs are stunningly beautiful, he is truly a talented artist. He displayed the pictures from the ceremony and of my hunband and I getting ready on a laptop as a slideshow running thoughout the reception and my guests were all amazed. I would highly recommend D. Bryant as a photographer for any wedding.

I have known Don both a professional and personal level for almost 5 years. It was a hands down no brainer decision to use him for our wedding. A variety of reasons factored in the decision. #1 the quality of work is breath taking and just undescribable in words... the quality is that good! #2 his personality in actually working with him, when he's the photographer. Our engagement portraits flowed so easy and nice because of how "chill" of a person he is and he makes you laugh. He grabs that special detail about you with his style; and that makes it well worth it. In that the day of the wedding the flow of how Don & His wife work together, it's truly perfect. #3 yes I am a vendor, I am a full time DJ in the area and on the professional side I prefer working with Don. We have this chemistry and flow, a level of respect to where we know how to work as a team and it's just the smoothest ever. Both of us have great luck working together and end up having excellent weddings. In fact we had a bride once write us both a letter; that's how good it was. Personally & Professionally... you can't go wrong with D. Bryant Photography!
