There is something genuine and beautiful about people when they are in love. I love the anticipation and excitement for the bride and groom to see each other for the first time on their wedding day, and it is my privilege to be in the special position as a wedding photographer to tell the story in beautiful images. Love also extends to friends and family on the wedding day, and it's amazing to be able to capture their pride and happiness through photographs.
My approach for weddings is to tell the story of the wedding day like a fly on the wall. I tend to let the events unfold naturally as I capture the real reactions through the day, while ensuring that I capture all the intricate details, happiness and fun. When the timing is right, I also mix in a bit of traditional approach to direct my brides and grooms under the best light and angles for beautiful yet natural portraits. I think it is important to be able to be flexible and balance the right amount of photojournalism, spontaneity, and traditional wedding photography for different brides and grooms with unique personalities. The day passes by so fast, and in the years after the wedding, I want my brides and grooms to be able to reflect back on the day and remember all the little details through my photos.
"Brett recently photographed our wedding, I wish there were more stars to give. As a bride you spend months pre-planning every detail for your special day, on the day you are pulled in a million different places and inevitably you miss things. Brett caught everything I missed. The part of the ceremony that the bride can't see (being the last down the isle) I saw when I looked at my pictures. I saw the guests, family and friend's reactions to the most magnificent day of my life. While at the wedding Brett was professional and most importantly efficient. He was able to adhere to a schedule beautifully. We spent just enough time to get the photos and we were able to enjoy the reception with the guests. Another great thing about Brett was he was inconspicuous. While taking the pictures you wouldn't even know he as there, he was quiet and sneaked some great shots. I have been incredible impressed with the turn around time in getting our proofs. Brett did all the editing in a timely manner and got all our pictures posted so we could enjoy them as soon as possible. Both my husband and I would highly recommend Brett Barnett Photography to anybody! " - Courtney Hatton

" Wonderful photography. Very personable, agreeable, flexible. Mr. Barnett covered an event we held that was a fundraiser for a nonprofit. He was very adaptable at the last minute due to a number of unanticipated changes. The photos turned out great. Thank you Brett!" - Jon Parker
"Brett photographed our wedding 05/26/18. He was seriously such a pleasure to have around taking pictures. He was fun to talk to and he had great poses and ideas that made our pictures absolutely breathtaking. We were so blessed to have him as one of our photographers. He created photos that made everything look more amazing than I could have ever imagined. Thank you so much Brett! Everyone loved your company as well as your photos. You truly are one of a kind!" -Brooke Cloud
Brett was very professional, enthusiastic and had good ideas about how to prepare for and shoot our wedding. He was far more organized and prepared than we were! Thankfully he was flexible when things did not go according to plan. The pictures were delivered promptly after the wedding, and they look fantastic. Whether you want traditional photos, more artistic and experimental photos, or a mix of both, Brett is your guy! -Matt Brewer
