Brandi Potter Photography

I'm not a traditional photographer You won’t find faked moments or awkward smiles within my work. Why? Because you’ll look at these photos later in life and know it wasn’t real. If you’re concerned about getting dirty or just want me to show up and shoot, then I’m not the photographer for you, and that’s fine. It doesn’t hurt my feelings if you decide to go in a different direction, and I’d be more than happy to help connect you with photographers who may be that perfect fit.

Where do I even begin?
I started second shooting with Brandi when I was passionate about pursuing photography. She took me under her wing and answered all my silly questions. Soon after, I got engaged and there was no doubt in my mind I wanted Brandi as my photographer. We became fast friends. It was easy to!

Brandi takes the time to get to know you— she wants to make your vision a reality.
Every photo I have received from her has given me joy; or made me cry.
Her artistry is exceptional and I love her details. On our wedding day, she cried with us.
(I was moving across the country and my mom was emotional the day of.)
Brandi cried with her. She also captured the sweetest photos of me and my mom that day— something I never asked her to but she knew I needed. Those are some of my favorite photos.

She knew I cared about the moments at my wedding and went above and beyond to get me the photos that would strike a chord in me. Some of them still make me cry. She captures emotions and feelings so well— better than any photographer I know. She is someone who is personable and actually wants to get to know her clients.

She has a very unique ethereal style when it comes to wedding photos which is why Rob and I chose her. I cherish the moments she has captured of us. Especially when life throws curveballs. Those photos are a reminder of the love I have and I’ll always be indebted to her for taking them.

There are three characteristics that make an excellent wedding photographer: someone who is 1) extraordinary and passionate about their craft, 2) inclusive and celebratory of you and your partner, and 3) fun and easy to work with.

Brandi Potter is all of these things and more. She has an incredible eye that catches the raw emotions of your special day and presents it in beautiful, earthy photographs that you will have and cherish forever. She goes the extra mile to learn about you and your partner, understand what you are looking for during your wedding day, and makes sure you are at ease and enjoying yourself from that first conversation through your entire wedding journey.

She is completely organic in her entire process - you’ll never feel like you are being awkwardly put in a “wedding template” pose. Every portrait will feel completely natural and authentic, and she will likely make you all smile and laugh during your sessions to keep the mood light and fun. We enjoyed working with her so much that we scheduled another session with her several months after our wedding to do family portraits with our dog!

Lastly, as a same-sex couple, we encountered several instances of vendors turning us away due to “not feeling comfortable photographing a same-sex couple.” Brandi came into our life when our spirits were low and completely turned our experience around with her immediate acceptance, care, and eagerness to be a part of our special day.

Want a photographer who will produce the most stunning and breathtaking pictures? Someone who will make the whole process feel like working with a friend who puts you at ease and has fun with the wedding planning along with you? Brandi is the one and only!

We cannot recommend her enough! We will be forever grateful for her support and the magnificent art she created when capturing one of the most special days of our lives.

When I got engaged and started planning, I knew right away that I wanted Brandi as my photographer. To put plainly, her work is astounding. Gorgeous, mind-blowing, one of a kind, I could go on and on. She has such tremendous skill in her work that I haven’t ever seen before, and it is so unique and different than what you typically get when dealing with a wedding photographer. It’s so incredibly classy and romantic, but more stylish and artistic than what I have ever seen before. It’s like she took all the colors from movie pictures that always stood out to me and put them in my pictures. She knew what I had in mind from just being around me and from me telling her what movies and music that I loved, and she just envisioned my vision all on her own. How insane is that? I don’t know how many people could ever say their photographer did this for them. She caters to her clients specifically, and makes their pictures in every way about who they truly are as a couple. Down to the poses. Down to the lighting. Down to the editing.
 
My wedding day was just perfect. I was so emotional and so happy the whole day I could hardly stand myself, and Brandi just hugged me and doted on me just like my family did. She could really see how happy I was and it was so clear to me how happy she was for me. Even when I didn’t see her, she was taking the sweetest pictures. She got some of me dancing with my grandparents, and when I saw them I really cried. And the details of my decorations! That meant so much to me because I worked so hard on them, and she got every single one with insane clarity.

I got my wedding pictures back within a week. One week! That is mind blowing, especially since I know for most photographers this takes a really long time. Of course I cried and immediately called her and talked forever about how thrilled I was with everything. It’s such a crucial element to find the perfect wedding photographer, and I hope from writing this that I’ve done my best to explain how much you won’t regret it if you use her.

(Shelby actually sent me around NINE long paragraphs and I had to edit it down to fit. If you want to read the entire thing let me know!)
