I’m Brian, and I’ve been a Raleigh photographer since 2005.
I began my career in photography a bit differently than other photographers in Raleigh. It started with editorial photography (ask me about it, it’s a funny story) and began photographing weddings shortly afterwards. I’ve spent most of my life involved with visual arts in some way. My background in photography, cinematography & concert lighting all have shaped my photographic style & vision.
Photographs are different than any other visual medium. They let us explore our own visceral connection to that specific moment, filling in the small details from your mind. This connects you with your wedding photos in ways I can’t describe but are very personal to each client. I create beautiful, natural imagery you are intrinsically linked to, not just being a prop in. Pursuing this achievement is what fills my soul as a wedding photographer.
Like most Raleigh wedding photographers I primarily work locally as well as the Durham & Chapel Hill areas. I travel to Wilmington, Charlotte, Asheville, North Carolina and around the country to locations like New York, Boston & Washington, DC as well as internationally.
Over the span of my career, I have had my photography published in top local & national magazines, spoken at nation photography conventions, mentored enthusiasts & new professionals, written for several photography magazines and won multiple photography awards.

I know hiring a photographer is difficult. I provide as many resources as possible prior to us ever meeting. This way, we can focus on getting to know more about each other rather than the details that many wedding couples ask about.
One of my core beliefs is to get great photos, you truly have to have a great experience! While I do everything I can before, on & after your wedding day to insure this happens, I am only one piece of the wedding puzzle. The links below have been assembled over hundreds of weddings and years of interactions. While i'd love to speak with you, please feel free to use these to help find the right professional for you, even if we don't work together.
