 I started off my photography journey with film—my grandfather gifted me my first camera in grade school. In high school I hit the darkroom and I was sold!
However, when it came to college, I thought a degree in photography was too risky, and opted to major in liberal studies instead and minor in art with an emphasis in photography. Little did I know my life’s trajectory was about to change.
 Isn’t it funny how life always finds a way to remind us what exactly it is we are born to do? a true wake up call. At 21, I went into complete anaphylactic shock (later to find out I suffer from Chronic Lyme's Disease). It was then, as corny as it sounds, that I realized how short life really is. Although I loved cultivating young minds as a teacher, I couldn't put my camera down, it was, and is, my true escape. So I jumped head-first into this crazy world we call photography and never looked back. 
I have the word “HOPE” tattooed on my wrist (in my mom's writing!) and it stands for Happiness, Optimism, Passion and Enthusiasm. A beautiful reminder of my journey and the life worth fighting for.

we all wait and hope for that 'aha' moment. sometimes our journey has a few bumps, turns, ups and downs, but we keep our hopes high, strive through, and when we look back... .... 
 it all makes sense. 
 getting my degree in liberal studies, was what i thought i was born to do. i love kids. i love teaching. it was a no brainer. then there was my passion for photography. the not so safe bet. a creative profession? too risky? then that 'aha' moment ... my body failed me. At 21, i went into complete, worse case, anaphylactic shock (later to find out it was lyme disease) . it was then, as corny as it sounds, that i realized how short life really is. although i loved cultivating young minds, i couldn't put my camera down. a bold move and amazing support of my family and friends, i jumped head first into this crazy creative world and never looked back. capturing moments you can cherish forever. this is not only my life, its my journey and my true passion. 8 years later, i still have to pinch myself!

BEHIND THE LENS

Meet Britt

engagements are not only a great memory, in a bitchin' location, but they are also a great way to get extra comfortable in front of the camera before the big day. 

family photos are just as important as wedding photos.  that priceless. candid, fun family love . year after year. and its nice to know my  teacher degree comes in handy, afterall! 

photography is an art, capturing your story is of the upmost importance. every detail, giggle, glance to relive everyday as if it were thee day!

"Britt captures true emotion and never misses those candid shots that really define the moment. What I love most about Britt's photos is that they tell a story. When I look through the photos from our wedding it feels like I'm reliving the whole day. She is everywhere without being in anyone's way and effortless in capturing those moments everyone dreams of"

Where do I even start? I really don't know because I don't think there are enough words to explain just how amazing Britt is. Not only is she an extremely talented, creative, and professional photographer, but she is one of the kindest and warmest humans you will meet. From day one, my husband and I were impressed by Britt. Talking to her about our wedding was like talking to a friend. We did both our engagement photos and wedding photos with her and they could not be more beautiful (we just got married on 11/18/17 so we have only seen a few sneak peaks of the wedding day, but they are INSANE!). Britt was honestly such a key part of our wedding day running smoothly. We were having a 3 pm ceremony at the Carmel Mission and even though it was a simple ceremony (lasting about 30 mins.) our reception venue was 20 minutes away with the sun setting at 4:56 pm. Oh, and we were NOT doing a first look. You'd think we were crazy to think we could possibly get all the photos we wanted, but Britt made it work and the best part was we did not feel stressed or rushed at all--I attribute this to Britt being lightening fast and knowing what shot she wants and how to get it. Our second shooter, Matt, was also amazing--my husband told me he and his groomsmen were having a great time with Matt just like the girls and I were loving our time with Britt. Britt is also very honest and not someone looking to just take your money. When it was time for Britt and Matt to head out (about 40 mins after open dancing had started) I asked if maybe if we should pay for an extra hour. She told me very honestly that she'd be more than happy to but in her opinion, they had all the dance floor photos we needed given that at that point in the night it was going to be the same people on the dance floor being photographed. She was so right and I so appreciated that honesty. I'm running out of space here so I'll just say this--Britt is worth every single penny and more. We adore her!

Jenna + Eric

The moment I met Britt, I became completely at ease and trusted her immediately. Her passion for photography is evident by the way she moves and directs you with the camera. I am someone who has always been uncomfortable in front of the lense and was worried my awkwardness was going to ruin my wedding photos. Oh, and she proved me wrong! Her vision is outstanding! She is smart, quick, and tells you exactly what you need to do to create the most beautiful photos. In addition to her hard work and grace, she truly cares, she is sweet as can be, and knows exactly how to have a good laugh! One thing that I loved about is her is that she is very clever... and to me, cleverness is important when it comes to being an artist. My friends and family keep asking me "Who is this incredible photographer?!". I will always continue to recommend her! Britt, I cannot thank you enough for your dedication and heart! P.s. you'd be CRAZY not to hire her!!

amanda + Calvin

Britt's photos have literally made grown men cry!! This is no joke. They are that beautiful and capture so much emotion. Britt is an EXPERT in the use of natural light in her photos. No gimmicks. No jumping. No canned poses. She lets you be yourselves and will give you slight direction. She is absolutely unobtrusive to the couple but also assertive enough with a crowd to get the pictures that YOU want. She is totally efficient with a no fuss approach. She is a very free-spirited, uplifting, nonjudgmental person that completely puts you at ease. Her work on her website was enough to sell me on her, but Britt as a person and an artist is unmatchable as well.

Shannon + Brain

Britt was incredibly wonderful to work with. My husband is not one to like his picture being taken, and she made it effortless and even fun. She made sure to get all of the pictures we wanted (big families are always tough!) as well as many many pictures that we didn't even know we wanted but absolutely cherish. She was very accommodating the planning process as well and worked with us to meet our needs in every way. She has great instincts and judgment when it comes to lighting and location and we absolutely love the style of her photography. We couldn't be more thrilled with our pictures!!

Lauren + andrew

"I have been following Brittany's photography for years and every image she captures exudes so much emotion, beauty, and elegance. Her sense of style and artistic flair is truly impeccable.. she is knowledgeable, and patient when it comes to answering all of your questions in a very timely fashion. She puts you at ease with how organized, experienced, and remarkable she is at what she does"

emily + Sanjay

I could not have dreamed of a better photographer. When we communicated for the first time, I just knew that no other photographer would compare. She’s friendly, bubbly, and the sweetest thing, which instantly put my husband & I at ease. we never felt like we were posing for photos,. we were constantly moving and doing our thing. Britt is just that good & FAST at capturing the sweet moments in an elegant way.

Nikki + Andy

Britt is fantastic! Her work speaks for itself - she captures stunning images, from the small details, unique lighting shots, incredible candids, and the "must haves". She knows how to direct you for the best poses and backgrounds, and she makes the whole experience relaxed and fun. She works quickly too! When most people wait months for their photos, just days after our ceremony, Britt was already sending us incredible "sneak peak" pics, and within a month, we had the entire album. I'm so impressed with her quality of work, her efficiency in delivering the final product, and her passion for her craft. Thank you Britt for capturing our wedding day perfectly. I highly recommend you and would love to work with you again!


Nathalie + Max

I hired Britt to photograph my September wedding and I could not be more thrilled with the outcome of my photos and the experience overall. The photos that Britt took are out of this world, they look like they belong in Vogue or Vanity Fair. In terms of the quality of her work, Britt is at the top of her game. In addition to being in love with my wedding photos, I was also very pleased with the entire process of working with Britt. She is very responsive, accommodating , and gets along with EVERYONE. She has a friendly and calm demeanor; she is someone with whom who you will enjoy spending your wedding day. Lastly, she got our photos back to us lighting fast. I had my entire set photos in my inbox the same day that I returned from my honeymoon! Britt is incredibly talented, reliable and easy to work with. I would recommend her over and over again.
