“There are too many amazing things to say about Bri and her talent as a photographer and artist! We decided to work with Bri in December 2018 for our wedding in Chicago on May 2019, and we couldn't have made a better choice. We had our first meeting with Bri at a coffee shop in Chicago and shared the vision for our photos and event. Bri made us both feel so comfortable and was genuinely interested and getting to know us and our story as a couple. She is so easy to connect with, which I feel is one of the most important aspects of a photographer! We both LOVE her style of capturing natural emotions by just having a good time, which is hard not to do with Bri. We left the meeting SO excited to start this journey with her! Bri always made herself available for any questions, was open to being flexible to our schedule, very communicative, and always made us feel special. She really goes above and beyond for her clients! Our engagement shoot was a blast, despite some nerves beforehand! Bri was able to make us both feel like we were just hanging out together, which created such natural pictures truly capturing our emotions and love for each other. The pictures turned out PERFECT! Before our wedding day, Bri went out to find some areas near our venue to shoot and sent us some ideas and options. They were EXACTLY what we were envisioning, and such a relief to not have to think about where to go. She really captured every moment of our day in such a special way. Our family and friends continue to compliment her professionalism, welcoming nature, overall awesome personality and OF COURSE her amazing photos from the day! We also had the opportunity to work with Bri for our invitation suite (save the dates, invitations, and thank you cards). This was so special to us, as we were able to create our own unique style and have someone as talented as Bri bring it to life! We cannot thank Bri enough for everything she has done to help make our special day one to remember!"

“We decided we needed Bri to shoot our wedding before we were even engaged!! She had shot a friends wedding and we fell in love with her work. When it was our turn she was the first we contacted and we couldn’t be more excited to book her! Right from the beginning Bri was so responsive, helpful and answered all the questions we had. She was so much fun to work with throughout the whole process! Our wedding photos turned out so incredible, she captured us and our day perfectly and everyone complimented on their beauty and uniqueness! Bri is the best in the biz and we are so happy to cherish her work for a lifetime!!!"

Lainie & Michael

Wedding: 2019

“The most important characteristics of a wedding vendor is for them to be A) reliable, B) self-sufficient, C) add a good vibe to your day. Bri is all of those things, and more. From our first meeting, Bri made us feel totally comfortable and confident about choosing her. She's organized and on top of her game at all times. She listens to exactly what your wants and needs, and then moves mountains to make your dreams come true. She goes out of her way to ensure every detail is perfect, always with a huge smile on her face. I'm so lucky to have worked with her for our wedding. Every single photo turned out even better than I could ever imagine, and now all of the prints are hanging in our new home! I'd recommend Bri to every single bride I know."

Andrea & Austin

Engagement: 2019

“After a few months of being newly engaged, my Fiancé Austin and I started to look around for a photographer for our photos. As a wedding and engagement photographer myself, I am extremely picky in what I like. A mutual friend reached out to me that Bri had availability and we got in contact! I had been following Bri for a year on IG with a few back and forth conversation; Bri was awesome at responding to me about outfits, what we had in mind and what she envisioned for us. When I met her in person, she was the same exact bubbly person I had been talking to online! My favorite part of the session was how comfortable we felt and looked in photos, she captured our personalities beautifully. The session was fun, spunky and counted as our exercise for the day (let’s go leg day!) When we received our photos, I felt the moments were captured just as I remembered them with a timeless editing style. I 100% recommend Bri to another couple especially if you are new to being in front of a camera and if you want photos that will never go out of style. From the session, Austin and I were blessed with a wonderful, personable experience and photos that we can’t help but smile when we see them on the wall."

Jessica & Kent

Wedding: 2019

“From the word go, we loved having Bri on our wedding team! I first found her on the Knot app, and my husband agreed at first glance at her gallery that she was the right fit for us. We started with a FaceTime chat that lasted 30+ minutes, and knew we had good chemistry with her. We talked about how Kent and I met, our lives now, our family and friends, and our overall image of the day. We knew we wouldn’t have time to meet before the wedding weekend: we live in Brooklyn, her home base is Chicago, and the wedding was in Charleston, and her communication skills really put me at ease. Once wedding weekend rolled around we finally met her face to face, and let the good times roll! We laughed and cried a lot on our wedding day, and even though we just met, we were always comfortable with her documenting it. Our friends and family loved her as well, said she was “a boss” (which is high praise from those folks) and more than one person thought she was an old friend who we asked to photograph the day. We received our photos in a super timely fashion, and I still can’t put them down over a month later. She captured exactly what we hoped and made us look like rockstars. Would recommend 1000x over!"

Montana & Griffin

Wedding: 2018

“Working with Bri was incredible! From the very early stages she was always available and eager to chat about ideas and plans for the big day. She was also great at helping us choose and organize a photography package that was best for us. We could not have been happier with our photos! Bri has an amazing energy and was amazing to have around on our wedding day! She was great with calming my nerves on an otherwise crazy day and also navigating through and organizing all of the many moving pieces of our wedding (and there were a lot!) Our photos are incredible! We had many different lighting circumstances (day/night, indoor/outdoor, natural/candle)and every single photo is incredible! We cannot thank Bri enough! We are in love with our photos and had the greatest time getting to know you. Hope we get to work together again one day!”

Sonny & Brian

Wedding: 2018

"Going on 2 months since our wedding day, and the best choice we made was choosing Bri as our photographer. I still can't stop looking at our wedding photos, and quite honestly, I am trying to think of any reason at all to have her do more photography for me...because her work is that good! And SHE is amazing to work with. Super down to earth and talented. Not only am I happy to have photos from her, but I'm happy to know her! Very reasonably priced, very flexible, and down for anything. She was a perfect fit for us. Thank you again, Bri."

Paulina & Eric

Family: 2018

"Bri has been our go-to photographer for the past 3 years, and will continue to be!! We were introduced to her wonderful work when she captured the love and laughter at my sisters wedding. She puts her heart and soul into everything she does and it shows! Bri has a way of making you feel comfortable, allowing your true self to come through. We have a 5 year old son, who is always happy to see her, but as you know kiddos are not the easiest to work with. She finds ways to relate to him and his moods, making it more fun for him. Her photos are very natural and not posed, they capture all our giggles and joys, true family connections. Bri has a great eye for detail and comes up with unique ideas and is always open to any suggestions we want to try. Bri is professional, super quick to reply to emails and answer any questions we may have. Her photos are always top notch quality and handled in a timely manner, we receive compliments all the time. We truly feel Bri has become a great friend and would STRONGLY recommend her for all your photo needs!!!!"

Nicole & Ernest

In Home: 2018

"Bri is nothing short of amazing! We just had an awesome in-home session with her and had so much fun. Bri always keeps things fun and relaxed. There are no awkward poses or same-old-same-old shots. Just fantastically captured moments that you will treasure for the rest of your life. Our in-home session was the third photo session we had with Bri andI cannot wait until we work with her again. She is organized, prompt, and original. From the moment I saw her work, I knew she had a unique sense of style that was unlike many other wedding photographers. At the same time, her photos are truly timeless. Beyond her work, Bri is also just great to work with. She is so kind and a great listener. If you have a crazy idea for a photo, she will go the extra mile to make it happen. Thank, Bri!"

Yesenia & Oscar

Engagement: 2018

"Bri did our engagement photos for us. After looking at the photos she does on social media and her page we know she was the one. We are non-traditional and didn't want to take a bunch of posey photos. Planning with Bri was so easy. She contacted me less than an hour after I sent her a message. She was able to accommodate where we wanted the photos and gave us great recommendations on the best time to do them. Bri was so easy going and made us feel comfortable during the whole shoot. She made us feel like it was just us regardless of everything going on around us. We really wanted photos by the lake since we are doing a destination wedding, it added that extra waterside feel. After we took a few city shots she knew the perfect place to go to get a great background. I would recommend Bri a million times over and hope to work together again in the future"

Karla & Antonio

Wedding: 2018

"My now husband and I decided to have a small, intimate wedding at The Nature Boardwalk at Lincoln Park Zoo. Since the view where our ceremony took place is beautiful we both decided to hire a photographer to capture our ceremony and then take post ceremony pictures. As we both did our research to hire a photographer who could capture our special day, Tony and I decided to contact Bri. As soon as we could, we looked her up on Google. The search led us to her page, where we were able to see her fabulous work. Through her page we were directed to her Instagram and we were able to see more of her work. I really loved it because it was definitely the type of photographer my husband and I had in mind to hire for our wedding. Tony and I had been thinking about hiring a photographer who could capture the REAL moments. After stalking Bri’s Instagram –ha ha ha-, I went back to her page and read her biography and I really liked how she described herself as a person and as a photographer. Bri will make sure you feel super comfortable in front of the camera; she will also follow you into the water, if that is where you and your husband/fiancé end up. What we really liked about Bri was that before personally meeting her, she took the time to get to know Tony and I as a couple. I think this is important because I had the opportunity to express what was important to both us and I was able to give her a brief summary of our love story. Before getting our photos taken I think one of my main concerns was that we had hired a photographer for 3 hours and I was not going to have enough “poses” for those three hours –ha ha ha-. I was so wrong, Bri will let you be you and there is no need to pose because neither my husband nor I are models. The three hours we spent with Bri were amazing! As a photographer she is very professional from beginning to end. As a person Bri is a sweetheart and a great person to talk to. I would definitely work with her again and will recommend to friends and family"

Tory & Danny

Engagement: 2018

"Bri is the BEES KNEES!!!!!! I loved her work that she did for a friend's wedding, so I hired her for my wedding and engagement pics. She went above and BEYOND for the engagements (wedding is in 2019). For real. Not many photographers would take my crazy ideas seriously and run with them. She literally got into a swan boat to take pictures of us and did a great job of making us look good. Love it. She's great. You can't go wrong!"

Taylor and Neil

Wedding: 2018

"When we got engaged a year ago we knew we’d do a destination wedding, we picked the date of the wedding in less then a week and the first thing I did was email Bri. She had done my sisters wedding and her photos were perfect, of course I couldn’t settle for anyone but the best. Bri is the best photographer, not only is she extremely talented she isalso fun, kind, professional and welcoming. She pours her heart into each aspect of her profession, from the first emails to receiving our beautiful photos I knew I had made the right choice. Bri traveled to Colorado with us and captured our day in the most magical way.My husband can be difficult when it comes to having his picture taken (she had her work cut out for her, trust me) she took her time and went out of her way to make him (us) feel so comfortable. Our wedding photos are to die for and looking through them I relive each moment and each feeling. They show the “realness” of the day, filled with true emotion. I love being reminded of how perfect our day was.Bri went above and beyond the call of duty; my (other) sister had lied to me saying the military wouldn’t let her come home from overseas for our wedding. Bri was there to photograph the surprise homecoming for my sister at our rehearsal dinner. She captured each moment of the unexpected return, such a joyous moment for the whole family.We are so fortunate and thankful for Bri — the time spent and the love that she pours into her clients and art is unmatched"

Katie & Ben

Wedding: 2018

"Bri was the 2nd photographer we met with last year - we were looking for someone to do both engagement and wedding photos and from the get go, I loved her enthusiasm and genuine interest in who my husband (Ben) and I were - what made us tick as a couple, etc. She loves LOVE -- and that made me excited about all of the "fuss" that generally comes with planning a wedding. I feel like over the last year, we've become friends and there's this special connection... Bri made it possible for us to re-live our best day ever over and over again through her beautiful photographs! So, thank you!! She was the consummate professional - always on time (if not early), our meetings had an agenda, and when shooting - she had a plan. We'd work with her a thousand times over and can't recommend her enough! One of the best parts?? When she sent us our photos, there was the SWEETEST thank you card. Bri - you're the best!!"

Amanda & Dave

Wedding: 2018

"Bri was an absolute dream to work with. From booking to planning to shooting, the entire process was such a breeze. She is so accommodating and easy to work with. My husband and I are bit awkward and camera shy, but Bri made us feel so comfortable during our engagement and wedding sessions. Our wedding was on one of the hottest days in Chicago, but she did such a great job of capturing our chemistry and the beauty of the city. She is not only a stunning photographer, but she is also very relatable and down to earth. We would highly recommend Bri as a photographer and will definitely be mentioning her to our friends getting married in the future. We couldn't be happier with the way our photos tuned out!"

Julia & Chris

Wedding: 2018

"Although Bri's editing and eye for candid photos full of emotion initially drew me towards her, meeting with her in person for the first time really sold us. She was personable, professional, and excited about her work. Up until the actual delivery of the photos (which arrive in SUCH a cute little package, just emphasizing the excitement of receiving it), she was prompt, professional, and quick to respond. Although we experienced a few hiccups along the way (none of which were on her), she handled them with grace and decisiveness. Could not recommend someone more."

Christi & Dan

Engagement: 2018

"My fiancee and I got engaged in the September, but due to my work, we were not able to plan an engagement photo shoot until the winter time in January. But this made for a beautiful winter engagement photo shoot that I have come to cherish, and a lot of that I owe to the wonderful work Bri did. I am truly grateful my fiancee knew Bri from high school and had heard that she was in the photography business these days. She did an amazing job with our engagement photo session! She ran the session as I had envisioned, letting us choose how we wanted to be captured on camera as well as where we wanted to be photographed on site at the Grove in Glenview and then providing ideas when we asked or came up short. She made me feel at ease from the get go when she took a few minutes to genuinely get to know us both by asking questions about how we met, and what each of our lives looked like. On top of that, she charged a very fair price for our 30 minute long session (which actually ended up being an hour with no complaints form Bri), especially in lieu of her traveling from Chicago out to Glenview, and then was quick to get us our photos from the session. Her website was a breeze to use, from downloading the photos to viewing them online as well. Never once did we feel uncomfortable during the session. I highly recommend Bri, a very talented photographer who will capture the beauty and essence of an engagement. Had we not already booked a wedding photographer, I would have undoubtedly chosen Bri."

Ashley & Tom

Wedding: 2017

" have so many great things to say about Bri, it took me forever to even figure out whereto begin! I have watched her grow as a photographer since we met in college back in 2013. She had photographed me as a model for some of her class projects, and even back then there was always something special and natural about her work. Fast forward 4 years to when my husband proposed to me, and I knew exactly who I wanted to have photograph our wedding journey. I remember calling Bri and dropping the bomb on her that our wedding was going to be on Anna Maria Island in Florida, and her immediate response was “Let’s do it!!!”. We started out with our engagement shoot in our home town of Chicago at Promontory Point. It was here that my husband and I found out very quickly that kissing and portraying different emotions in front of a camera together was a new challenge for us. But, Bri knew exactly how to break the ice and make us feel comfortable. We were laughing and having fun the whole time. To us that was the most important part because it spurred that organic chemistry you can feel when you see a couple together, and it really shows in our photos. Looking back, it’s funny how nervous we were at the start, and now we talk about how our photoshoots were one of the most fun and memorable parts of the whole experience. The engagement photos with her were a perfect way to get comfortable in front of the camera and get us even more excited for our big day! In the weeks leading up to our wedding, we had many conversations with Bri. We drew from her experience with other weddings to frame our timeline, make last minute changes, and most of all prepare us for what to expect. Once wedding week arrived down in Florida we had a lot of things to worry about, but the one thing we didn’t have to stress about at all was our photographer. She spent the entire day before our wedding scouting locations on the island for our “First Look”, meeting with our wedding coordinator, and familiarizing herself with the venue. Once the big day finally arrived, Bri showed up bright and early to hair & make-up with her running shoes strapped on tight! She coordinated the show, helping call my parents and husband, and making sure that everyone stayed on schedule. Bri truly has a good eye for people, and during our “First Look” she helped us capture the most original parts of ourselves. She also chose scenery that we would not have thought to include, but with this she was able to capture the essence of what makes that quiet little island such a special place to us. Her attention to detail thrived through out the day, capturing all the emotion during our ceremony, and all the mayhem that followed. Many of the things you spend the most time preparing are the easiest to overlook. Bri made sure not to miss these little things, like our flowers, centerpieces, and the cake (before everyone ate it). You only get to experience your wedding day once, but Bri’s photos have allowed us to keep these moments with us forever. We’re so thankful for her preparation, her vision, her guidance, and most of all, who she is as a person. Choosing her was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding journey!"

Sarah & Sam

Engagement: 2017

"Y'all, I would give her 10 stars if I could!! Bri is everything I look for in a photographer.She is so kind, relatable, and insanely talented. She did my engagement session in the Garfield Park Conservatory and I could not be happier with the photos. I feel like this was such a perfect setting because all of Bri's photos are very much ALIVE. There is so much life and joy in her photos, and to me, those make the best memories. Bri will be photographing my destination wedding in Maui, and I cannot wait to see how her imagination runs wild. I am forever grateful for these memories, and I hope everyone gets an opportunity to be photographed by Bri."

Holly & Ben

Anniversary: 2017

"My husband Ben and I had not had photos taken since our wedding, and although I was really excited about the photo shoot I also found myself more nervous than I had anticipated! Bri was so patient and made us feel comfortable from the beginning! We had so much fun during our time with her! I love how natural, spontaneous, and fun our photos turned out! I truly feel that they capture the joy in our marriage. Bri was prompt and helpful in all of our correspondences, and she was so kind. We look forward to hopefully working with her again in the future"

Sarah & Danny

Wedding: 2017

"I am absolutely stunned by how great Bri was through the entire engagement and wedding photo process. She made us feel super comfortable the entire time and on top of that the photos ended up looking better than I could have ever expected. I LOVE all the artistic touches and different angles. Thanks for rockin’ out the Schmieder Wedding, Bri!"

Kayleigh & Steven

Anniversary: 2017

"Our anniversary session with Bri was everything! We hadn't really had our photos done since we got married 5 years ago and it was so great for us to have that time together. We drove together with Bri and got to know her and she is absolutely awesome! She kept us laughing all through our session and kept it fun even through the chilly weather and crazy wind. So thankful to have found an amazing photographer and new friend! Can't wait to see our photos!"

Sara & David

Wedding: 2017

"Bri was fantastic to work with! Planning was painless and she was so helpful for both our engagement and our wedding photos! She does wonderful work and kept everyone smiling and laughing. We felt comfortable with her very quickly and she was very professional at the same time. The photo package was beautiful and we are in love with the images she took! I would absolutely recommend her to others for engagement, wedding, and portraits! Thank you, Bri!"

Ashley & Clay

Anniversary: 2017

"Bri is unbelievably talented! Her use of natural light is fantastic and I could not be more pleased with our photos. She is kind, funny, and has a great eye for places and poses while making her clients feel totally at ease. I am so grateful to have beautiful third anniversary photos to treasure thanks to her!"

Nicole & Ernest

Wedding: 2017

"I am so happy we found Bri! She was an absolute joy to work with. Bri is organized, fun, and has a keen sense of style. Her attention to detail shines through her photos. From the engagement session to the wedding, she was seriously down for anything (like smoke bomb photos). Whenever we had a question, Bri was quick to answer. We always felt really comfortable working together. It was so easy to just be ourselves and Bri did the rest. After the wedding, I was really looking forward to the wedding photos. . . and they were better than we could have ever hoped for. They even came in the most adorable packaging! You could really tell that Bri took the time to give us the most perfect gift. We absolutely love them! Bri's photography is so unique, relaxed, and exactly what we were looking for. Bri, thank you for being a part of our big day."

Kristine & Jay

Wedding: 2017

"It was a such a wonderful and easy experience working with Bri Short Photography for our engagement shoot and wedding day! Bri is organized, easy to communicate with and was always quick to respond with any questions we had. She made us feel comfortable even when we were nervous in front of the camera. She captured our wedding day beautifully and we have absolutely stunning and unique photos to remember our day. We received so many compliments from our wedding guests and family about how great of a job she did along with her second photographer Sarah. Thank you Bri for our beautiful photos, we couldn’t love them more!"

Shelbie & Jeremy

Engagement: 2017

"Words can not even begin to describe how amazing Bri is. Not only is she amazingly talented, but she is genuinely one of the best human beings you will ever meet. This summer Bri shot our engagement pictures at my fiancé's family lake house. This session was one that I dreamed about since I met Bri five years ago, and it was more than a dream come true. If you feel that taking pictures will be awkward, with Bri it WILL NOTBE! She makes you feel so comfortable and she will keep the smiles coming for days. The passion that Bri has shooting is one of the most breathe taking inspiring things I have ever seen. I promise you, you will not be disappointed. She will do anything for the perfect shot!"

Brittany & Jake

Wedding: 2017

"Working with Brianne (and Melanie) on our wedding day was beyond perfect! We honestly can't recommend them enough. They were incredibly professional and had great ideas for photos so we didn't have to be stressed about it at all. I've known Brianne since we were in high school, and it meant so much to have her as such an important part of our day. We will recommend Bri Short Photography to absolutely everyoneBri is nothing short of amazing! We just had an awesome in-home session with her and had so much fun. Bri always keeps things fun and relaxed. There are no awkward poses or same-old-same-old shots. Just fantastically captured moments that you will treasure for the rest of your life.

"It was amazing working with Bri and Mel for our wedding day! They were so fun and laid back. We felt completely comfortable at all times with them. :) Planning was very simple and easy because Bri was so quick to respond to any of my emails or texts. Our pictures were wonderful and we highly recommend these two for anyone's wedding day! The package we received with our photos was so cute and well put together. We really felt cared for and appreciated."

Alexandria & Jimmy

Engagement: 2017

"I highly recommend Bri Short Photography! Bri is an amazing photographer. My fiancé and I hired her for our engagement photos, and we couldn't have been more thrilled with the entire experience. She made sure we were comfortable while shooting, and created a fun and joyful environment. Our shots turned out awesome! There was no hesitation in booking her for our wedding this August. I can't wait!!!"

Dorothy & Josh

Wedding: 2016

"Where do I even start??? We LOVED working with Bri (and Melanie) on both our wedding day and for our engagement shoot. The planning process was so simple with Bri- if i had a question, an idea, whatever it may have been - I just shot her an email and she responded right away. Heck, she was even available via text. The overall experience in shooting with Bri was so laid back. You often wonder, eeesh, I'm going to have to get all romantic in front of this person - will I be comfortable? Bri brought out all the laughs, all the love that make it possible to take such amazing photographs - Bri and Melanie are so laid back and kind. It was a comfortable and fun experience. The final product - amazing!We received SO many compliments on our photos! Family told us that they TEARED UP when they saw our engagement photos (I'm sure the wedding photos will be much the same). I can't even believe the kind of product we received for the price we paid - when I was looking around for photographers, people were charging four times the amount for product that was not even a quarter of how amazing Bri's work is. I would absolutely recommend Bri to anyone that needs a photographer - in fact, I fully plan on hiring her again for any more moments that Josh and I share together in this new life of ours! (Bri and I are not related, we havn't been bff's since first grade, I'm just THAT with my experience!) Thanks Bri and Melanie!UPDATE: The wedding photos were (are!) absolutely stunning! We've received so many compliments on how they look like they belong in a magazine! They even got to us not even a month after the wedding! (I'd say about three or so weeks). She edited them so quickly and sent them to us by mail in the cutest packaging. I have friends who got married and hadn't received their wedding photos even 4 months after their wedding!"

Lane & Tony

Wedding: 2016

"I am so thankful that over a year ago my mom ran into Bri’s dad at the local grocery store in the town that Bri and I both grew up in. Luckily for me, I was newly engaged and on the hunt for the perfect wedding photographer. My mom quickly put a bug in my ear that Bri Short had her own photography business and that I should check it out. Making the decision to hire Bri was a no brainer and Tony and I are so thankful that we did. From booking to the day of our wedding everything was easy and stress free. Bri made the day so comfortable and relaxed. Two things that are 100% necessary amidst all the stress and nerves that a wedding day tends to bring. We were so lucky to have her by our side to capture every precious moment. It meant so much to have not only an amazing photographer but also a wonderful human being and childhood friend by our side on our wedding day. Bri’s photos from our wedding day are like a movie that you can watch over and over again. Her work speaks for itself. It is emotional and full of life. She was able to capture moments that we will treasure for a lifetime. There are no words to describe how lucky Tony and I are that my mom bumped into your dad. Thank you for your beautiful work and your amazing self. We cannot wait to hire you for our future life events! All our love and thanks"

Therese & Caleb

Wedding: 2016

"Today our engagement photo package arrived in the cutest little box imaginable. I have never been one to get emotional over pictures (especially not ones of myself), but I found myself tearing up looking through the gorgeous shots Bri captured. Her photography captures the essence of love in a way I didn't even know was possible! I am so grateful to Bri for helping make these special memories so beautiful. The process was very comfortable and casual and the product is captivating. If you're looking at booking a photographer for your engagement/wedding I would HIGHLY recommend that you contact Bri immediately! I cannot say enough good things about Bri!!!"

Amanda & Lawrence

Wedding: 2016

"I stumbled across Bri when she messaged me on a wedding website. I was very early in the planning process but thought I might as well look into her and I am so glad I did! I started looking through her website, Facebook, etc. until I had seen all her photos. It didn't take long for me to run to my now husband convinced I had found our photographer. We got on Bri's schedule about 10 months before our wedding and didn't once look back. She offered us an amazing price and plenty of guidance along the way. I was a bride with many questions and some weird picture wants. On the day of the wedding, Bri was early and ready to go. She ran around meeting all my crazy desires, going from location to location and enduring the 10 degree Chicago weather through it all. She was willing to do whatever I wanted but was also ready with incredibly creative plans and had all kinds of fun ideas that I jumped on. From the picture that makes the church look like Hogwarts and the one of our dog as the ring bearer to the sparkler photo and the amazing shots in the library, Bri did an amazing job! I cannot express how fantastic the pictures turned out. Many of them hang in our living room and I frequently find myself just staring. I can't even say I have a favorite because I love them all! If you want a vibrant, fun, creative, and talented photographer...choose Bri!!"

Rita & TJ

Wedding: 2016

"Bri shot our non-traditional wedding at Starved Rock this past summer. We had a small wedding ceremony with immediate family only. Although we were nervous about finding a photographer who would encapsulate our intimate outdoor wedding style, Bri was perfect. Our photos came out beautifully, the images were clear and captured all of the best moments of our day. The detail photos that she took prior to our wedding were breathtaking and showcased all of our handmade wedding touches. When taking newlywed photos after the ceremony, Bri made us both comfortable and we had a blast hiking through the park to locations Bri had previously scouted out. The perfect touch to end our experience with Bri was the beautiful hand crafted box that she mailed us containing a flash drive of our photos and three snapshots from our collection. Now we forever have a keepsake to remind us of our wonderful experience. I would highly recommend Bri for any type of wedding or event, her portfolio speaks for itself! Again, thank you so much"

"Bri did such a great Job photographing our special day. Not only was she willing to travel hours to our small town, she was able to make beautiful shots in a place she had never been before! We showed her our favorite places around and she made it work! Our wedding party all have amazing personalities and she allowed each one to show their stuff! Our family and friends loved her presence at the reception and she truly captured the amazing evening we all had! I love that I have digitals of all of our photos so I can print them anyway I want them, not just standard sizes or forms. I would recommend Bri to anyone!"

"Last summer I married the love of my life and best friend, Tim. We are a very laid back couple who didn't want stale posed pictures. On top of that I don't typically photograph well. Bri was able to meet with us close to home to prepare and discuss our expectations. She was able to assure me that she could make me look like the best me I could be in photos. Bri was able to capture our love and essence of the day. She helped make us look natural and relaxed even when the weather turned from mostly sunny to rain. Bri came prepared with umbrellas and optimism to still ensure that we felt special and dry on our wedding day. Camera in hand Bri creates magic. She has an eye for angles and spontaneous photo ops. Working with Bri was nothing less than exceptional. We felt so comfortable and confident. Plus we had a lot of fun! Bri was extremely professional, yet friendly and flexible. Most importantly, the end result was fabulous! We were in complete awe when we saw our photographs. We are actually looking forward to using Bri's talents again when we have our first child. She has ventured into photographing babies and families and we can't wait for her to capture our growing family.Bri is nothing short of amazing! We just had an awesome in-home session with her and had so much fun. Bri always keeps things fun and relaxed. There are no awkward poses or same-old-same-old shots. Just fantastically captured moments that you will treasure for the rest of your life. Our in-home session was the third photo session we had with Bri andI cannot wait until we work with her again. She is organized, prompt, and original. From the moment I saw her work, I knew she had a unique sense of style that was unlike many other wedding photographers. At the same time, her photos are truly timeless. Beyond her work, Bri is also just great to work with. She is so kind and a great listener. If you have a crazy idea for a photo, she will go the extra mile to make it happen. Thank, Bri!"

"Before finding Bri, I had met with another photographer. He had been in the business for years, which is what other professional photographers told me to look for: experience. So I met with this experienced photographer, and he shared with me his portfolio: cookie-cutter photo after cookie-cutter photo. All of the weddings were the same shots over and over again. His creativity definitely left something to be desired! So I began the hunt to find someone creative and budget-friendly. And then somehow I found Bri. From the pre-booking meeting to receiving our photos, Bri was a pleasure to work with! She was very accessible when I had questions and gave wonderful advice on how to arrange the pre-wedding photos for the wedding day itinerary. On the day of the event, my husband and I were able to enjoy the day knowing that Bri's creative eye would capture every unique moment. When we received our photos (in the cutest packaging!), it was clear that she had taken the time to edit and curate a beautiful collection of photos that will be treasured for years to come. I would definitely work with Bri again and have already recommended her to others."

"When my husband and I started looking for a photographer for our wedding, we were trying to find someone who went above and beyond the typical "cookie cutter" wedding photos. After stumbling across Bri's website, we fell in love with her artistic style and knew she was the right photographer for us. Bri was very professional throughout the entire process and worked with us on putting together a schedule to make sure no important moments were missed. We actually had a little bit of extra time between the wedding and reception and Bri came up with some great locations and photo ideas that turned out great. When we received the edited photos, we were blown away. Bri did such an amazing job capturing our day and we couldn't recommend her enough."
