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!

We absolutely could not imagine our wedding experience without the Brand Studio. Sean and John are incredible photographers and people! They were much more to us than just photographers - we were truly blown away by them. They were extremely helpful and professional during every phase of the process. Our engagement session and wedding photo's were so much fun and relaxed thanks to them! We never wanted it to end! They deliver your photographs very quickly - I never expected to be seeing all of our pictures just 12 days after our wedding.

Sean and John made themselves available to any need or question we had. They were extremely flexible and really worked hard to make the day go smoothly and how you want it. Our wedding day went so smoothly largely thanks to them. They gave us great advice and kept the evening moving (like a wedding planner!). When we were unsure about a DJ, they had a couple recommendations, which is how we ended up choosing our wonderful DJ, as well!

Not only are they great people, but their photography is stunning. We have received so many compliments on our pictures from friends and family and I never get tired of looking at them. We really cherish them - Sean and John captured who we are perfectly in our pictures! They are brilliant in what they do, and make every single picture look special.

I never write reviews, but was so excited to get the word out about the Brand Studio! Choosing them was definitely the best decision we made for our wedding. I can assure you that you will not regret choosing them! We searched for weeks and weeks for the right photographer, and I'm so thankful we went with Brand - they had us hooked after our first meeting. They offer a simply amazing product and experience! We are so, so thankful. We both agreed that we'll be using them again for any future events!

The Brand Studio is absolutely amazing! John and Sean are the most professional, talented, and kind photographers. They are extremely prompt in replying to e-mails. They are willing to meet with you at your convenience. The timing and exact details of photos taken on our wedding day were clearly planned out with them and executed. Specifically, we had opted for a first look session before the ceremony and wanted photos taken with specific individuals after the ceremony in the chapel. The best part is the photos. They are absolutely beautiful! We highly recommend working with John and Sean for your wedding!

It was an absolute delight working with John and Sean from The Brand Studio for our wedding photography. They are both extremely professional and really made an effort to learn about us and what we wanted. Since we were separated by a pretty large distance, they took the time to set up multiple video chats with us to talk about our plan and learn our personalities.

We expressed our concerns that we are both a little awkward when it comes to being photographed and that we do not really pose well. They assured us that they would concentrate on candid and “in the moment” type photos, which really helped calm our nerves.

On the day of the wedding, both Sean and John were very accomodating. They talked with both of us regularly and kept us updated on schedule and what would be happening, which really took a lot off of our minds and helped us relax.

All of this work paid off and we could not be happier with the final product. All of our photos are beautiful with high attention to lighting and composition, and the album that was part of the package is both expertly laid out and very high in quality.

We would not hesitate to recommend The Brand Studio to anyone in need of photography services.

THE BEST! Finding the perfect photographer was the most difficult part of wedding planning for me. When I started to look at portfolios, I worried that I was just looking at the best/most unique photos taken from a compilation of MANY weddings rather than a true representation of each wedding. A significant factor in my choice of The Brand is that they feature some photos from each wedding they photograph on their site. You can scroll through and see that every couple received beautiful photos, which gave me a lot of confidence. I also found that most photographers don't have album examples online. The Brand has many examples of their beautiful, high quality albums on their site. Even though their price was a little higher than what I wanted to spend, I found myself comparing every other photographer's photos to The Brand's soft, delicate, "postcard worthy" photos and ended up booking them because I had a lot of confidence that I would get what I paid for. I definitely did and am so happy with my decision.

John and Sean are both very nice people, easy to work with, and definitely my most responsive vendor. Sean returned my emails crazy quickly! I also felt that their quality of service was the best of all my vendors. They drove out to meet us or check out our photo spot 3 times. The day of the wedding, John and Sean were very flexible and willing to split up and go wherever we needed them to. They were very committed to getting all of the pictures we wanted. We had our proof gallery before we returned from the honeymoon and had our album designed and ordered within a month of the wedding. Our pictures turned out exactly how I wanted and I couldn't be happier with them. Thanks John and Sean! :)

Sean and John were great to work with. Photography was probably the most stressful vendor to research/find. I loved Sean and John's work, professionalism, and their artistic backgrounds. As soon as we met with them in person, we knew we wanted to work with them. They responded quickly to all emails, and were also accessible over facetime to meet with us (we planned everything from out of town). They helped plan out our morning/first look timeline. Got our slideshow 4 days after the wedding!!, and our proofs and album design little over a week after the wedding! Everyone from our friends and family has raved over the photos we've shared so far and we are SO eager to see the album. Highly recc these two!!

My husband and I got married in June of 2012. As much as I wanted to have the most beautiful wedding photos, my husband and I were on a tight wedding budget and we went with the first great deal we found. Needless to say, our wedding pictures were far from spectacular. The following summer my older sister got married and used the Brand Studio. I knew from the first 5 minutes of meeting Sean and John that my sister's pictures were going to be amazing. I had seen work that they had done prior to my sisters wedding and I couldn't get over how beautiful the pictures were. For the longest time, I talked to my husband about getting our pictures taken again. I wanted those beautiful pictures that every bride wants in her dress. In November of 2013, we finally made it happen. We booked a newlywed shoot with Sean and John and I was so excited. The day was absolutely beautiful and also freezing! They kept making sure I had a jacket in between pictures and they were so easy to be around. Sean and John were so professional and attentive to us. The pictures were the most amazing pictures I've ever seen. I finally was able to have the beautiful pictures I always wanted. I would recommend the Brand Studio to anyone that wants to have amazing pictures. We will definitely be using them again in the future!! Thank you Sean and John!
