Sean and John were absolutely AMAZING. They were extremely accommodating and helpful from the start, even with our non-photography related questions. They made us feel very comfortable, and were easy to talk to and communicate with, and they were very helpful with keeping things going throughout the actual wedding day. And of course, the photos are absolutely beautiful! They did such a great job of capturing moments throughout the day, and our photo album is absolutely beautiful. My wife and I can't thank them enough for capturing our wedding day so perfectly.

Sean and John are amazing! We loved working with them. They were so helpful, nice and responsive from the beginning. We asked their opinion on a lot of things for the wedding and they gave great advice. Our pictures turned out so beautiful. We've gotten so many compliments on them. I couldn't imagine working with anyone other than The Brand Studio. I'm would recommend them to anyone!!

Sean and John were absolutely wonderful to work with. They were referred to us by a family member that had used them to photograph their wedding - the photos from that wedding were so beautiful that I barely researched any other photographers before booking The Brand Studio, and we were certainly not disappointed!

Working with Sean and John was so seamless and easy. They were extremely prompt in replying to emails and were more than willing to answer any and all questions that I had, which I really appreciated. They were also very organized and made the process so easy from start to finish -- everything from booking, to planning the timeline for the day of, to choosing our album design was very simple and straightforward.

Our wedding photos themselves turned out beautifully - we are so happy with them! The weather on our wedding day ended up being less than ideal, but it amazed me how Sean and John were able to capture our photos in a way that made it so that you could never tell the weather had been bad. They have a great eye as well -- there were a few spots that they ended up taking us to for photos at our venue that I had never even seen before and the photos turned out to be so pretty. Their style is very classic, elegant and timeless, which is exactly what I wanted.

I can't recommend The Brand Studio enough! We are so happy that we chose them as the photographer for our wedding day.

Finding the right photographer is one of the most important parts of your wedding day, in my opinion. Prior to booking a photographer, I took the time to thoroughly research photographers in the area and spoke with a few friends who provided helpful feedback. I am so glad that I came across The Brand Studio. Throughout the entire planning process, Sean and John quickly responded to any questions that came up, and they also set up phone discussions and an in-person meeting in order to finalize plans. Going into the day, I felt confident that everything would go smoothly, and it did. Sean and John were so professional and stuck to a strict timeline without any problems. Working with them was so incredibly easy. We received our proofing gallery back quite quickly, and we are already reviewing the final draft of our album. We are in love with our photos! What I love about them is that they are so timeless. We will love these photos in fifty years just as much as we do now. Booking with The Brand Studio is one of the best decisions you can make.

As the Mother of the Bride, I cannot stress enough how happy I am that my daughter and I chose The Brand Studio to capture her special day. The photos were absolutely stunning! Also, they had the proofs online in less than a week. Sean and John were so wonderful to work with, the lines of communication were always open. They were with us all day on the wedding day and yet I never really noticed them. They stayed in the background but managed to take hundreds of beautiful photos, capturing every special moment of the day. I really enjoyed putting together my Parent Book. I chose my photos, then The Brand Studio sent me an online sample of the book. I was able to add, delete and rearrange my pages several times until I had the perfect layout. Best of all, I had my finished Parent Book just three weeks after the wedding! There are so many details to stress over when planning a wedding, but if you choose The Brand Studio as your wedding photographer, you can be confident in your decision. The Brand Studio is professional, prompt and extremely talented! Liz C.

Choosing Brand Studio as our photographers was easily one of the best decisions that we made during the wedding planning process. They were both incredibly friendly and professional and made the entire wedding process so much more stress-free. We had them take both our engagement photos and our wedding photos and they turned out absolutely stunning. I couldn't believe all of the amazing shots that they captured from the big day! Thanks to them, we have so many gorgeous photos to help us remember our special day. Everyone that I've shown either our engagement or wedding photos to was extremely impressed and couldn't believe how beautifully they captured everything!

Sean and John were so great to work with because they were extremely proactive. When planning a wedding, it's easy to let little things slip through the cracks, but they would proactively reach out to me about details I should be thinking about - like what pictures I'd like from the wedding day, what the timeline of the day looks like, etc. They made the entire process so much easier and were so friendly in every single interaction.

On the day of the wedding, they did a great job of capturing every moment from the day, but they did a great job of staying in the background and letting the day unfold naturally. I really appreciated how quick and efficient they were with pictures. I've been to weddings where the bride and groom are away from guests to take pictures for hours and miss a huge chunk of the event, but this was not the case with Brand! They captured amazing pictures of my husband and I, but did so efficiently so we could spend as much time with our guests as possible.

I highly recommend The Brand Studio to anyone looking for a photographer! They truly captured the spirit and the energy from our event and were amazing to work with!

From the first moment I met them, I knew that John and Sean were true professionals. They are pleasant guys who clearly respect their clients, and they showed up to our wedding well-dressed (definitely a plus). They listened to what I wanted and were very respectful of the limited time we had for photos the day of my wedding, and the results we got back were wonderful. Rain was predicted all day, but it held off long enough for us to take photos before the ceremony, and then the rain cleared after the ceremony for even more outdoor shots! I know photographers can't control the weather, but these guys definitely maximized our opportunity to get the photos we wanted, which made me very happy. My one criticism would be that they stuck very closely to my requested shot list and did not add much of their own artistic spin to the group shots, but I can't really complain because there are still so many great shots for us to choose from. Best of all, we received the initial photo slideshow just a few days after the wedding, the full proof later that week, and the first draft of our album shortly thereafter! It was so exciting to see our photos so quickly. All in all, I would recommend The Brand Studio as a great group of professionals who put us at ease that day and produced some truly beautiful photos!
