Nicole and Kaleb, destined to join hands for life, said their vows at Camp Jordan on the water, in the mist, as the leaves fell from the trees surrounding those who love them. Nicole has waited her whole life it seems for this moment. I met Nicole and Kaleb about a year and a half ago, as Nicole’s face lit up about her dreams of this big day marrying her best friend. She also made me feel so incredibly proud of my work as she swooned over previous work I had done, and she told me she would do anything it took to make sure I was able to photograph her wedding. I was honored by her admiration and couldn’t wait to photograph her and Kaleb. I met up with them again to do their engagement photos and had so much fun taking photos of the two of them in the windy autumn sunset. We laughed a ton, which is always my favorite part about work, if I can make people laugh, then I’ve accomplished my job of documenting people looking genuinely happy. When Nicole received her images back she was so happy and shared rave reviews of my work. I made her and Kaleb see just how beautiful their love is, and the real, raw connection they share.
Throughout the last year, Nicole and I have kept in contact about updates, plans, timelines, lists, and everything it takes to put a huge event together. She even decided to add extra hours and another photographer as well, which I am so thankful that she did!
As the day started, I arrived and got to work on photographing details of the dress, shoes, rings, veil, all the while stopping and capturing moments of the ladies getting ready. Andy spent his morning with the guys and documented them as they got their haircuts, and did whatever it is that guys do the morning of a wedding. Haha After Nicole was dressed and ready she made her way down to a natural chapel in the woods to share a moment of prayer with her grandfather and soon to be husband without him actually seeing her. As you may guess, something like this poses challenges. Nicole made it halfway down the path and heard Kaleb was not yet there, so she escaped quickly into an empty cabin with incredible soft light. Her fiance walked by without seeing her as he was blindfolded, but she totally saw him and she lost it. Her eyes started to well up with tears as she looked back at me and tried to distract herself from crying too soon in the day. She made her way to the chapel in the woods and stood against him and held his hand as her grandfather prayed with them. Nicole couldn’t hold them back any longer, and the tears slid down her cheeks. It was becoming very real for her, and she had no words to describe but her tears spoke for themselves.
Nicole and Kaleb then parted ways to prepare for the ceremony.
Now I must mention, Kaleb’s mom, Robin. She was not able to be present on her son’s wedding day due to a very recent aggressive diagnosis that devastated the whole family. But everyone is so thankful because of technology, she was able to watch in a live video at the hospital. Andy and I captured the moments she was part of and made sure to include them as she was still very much present at the wedding and she got to see her son marry his wife that day.
After the ceremony, we took formal photos in the rain and mist on the water. I was so thankful to have a wonderful guest hold an umbrella over me the entire time. I can’t say thank you enough for the kindness that goes into a gesture like that for someone. After we finished portraits, we joined cocktail hour and did formal dances. The food was served by friends and family of the bride and groom, and it was so delicious. The rest of the night we partied away and danced our hearts out on the dance floor. The day went by way too fast, but every moment was so amazing!
Where do I begin? From the very start from inquiry to the day of the wedding, Bree was very quick and easy to communicate with. The day of the wedding was extremely chilly and Bree was there with bells on with an amazing attitude. She was wonderful with everyone there and a gentle guide to make sure we got all of the shots we wanted. More than one person said that they felt they knew her. That’s how calming and natural her presence was.
Now - the pictures. We got the sneak peak one or two days after the wedding! The speed at which she edited was much faster than expected. The photos were incredible to say the least. She absolutely captured the essence of the day and went above and beyond our wildest expectations. We will cherish these photographs forever! Thank you, Bree
I have worked with Brianna three times (family photos, newborn and headshots). She is an excellent photographer and makes the process engaging, delightful and easy. I would highly recommend her to other families!
Bree did an absolutely amazing job. She made things fun and comfortable. I despise my picture taken. but she made it fun and you barely knew she was there. I would highly recommend her. The quality of her work from start the photos being taken to the end results was beyond exceptional. Sadly i cant given more than 5 stars, or else i would
Hands down one of the best photography experiences I've ever had. This photo shoot was coordinated across states without having met. I was given Bree's name as a referral from a friend & trusted that she would be great for our family. Great is a wild understatement. Given our unique circumstances, Bree agreed to meet us during one of our port docks onboard a cruise vacation we had booked. Not only did she offer up available seating in her car to help accommodate our large group, she was willing to bend over backwards to make sure we got exactly what we wanted - and that we did! AND MORE! Bree's personality made our family feel extremely comfortable and relaxed during our shoot. The beautiful memories we have from these photos will be forever cherished & Bree will be forever remembered in our hearts. If you're trying to decide who to go with as your photographer, stop thinking about it and just choose Bree. You won't be sorry!
Highly recommend Brianna and Breezy Photography. Brianna met all of our expectations and then some! My son couldn’t be happier regarding his senior photos! Photos were absolutely gorgeous and timely turnaround. They are artistic and have beautiful compositions! She even met us on location and was up for an adventure to get the best shots! Definitely worth the investment!
I’m so happy we chose to work with Brianna for our wedding day! The quality of her work is absolutely incredible, so professional, detail oriented and creative. She made us feel so comfortable that all our photos reflect how simply and purely happy we were that day. She has such a warm and kind energy and she didn’t hesitate with helping coordinate some parts of the day! She’s by far the most talented photographer I’ve worked with and will definitely work with her again in the future!
I hired Bree for the birth of my last baby and I am so so glad I did. Not only is she incredibly talented, she is so personable and passionate about what she does. She came and met with my birth team before labor which was so comforting and came super quick when she knew I was in labor. I am forever grateful for the moments she captured for my family. I would recommend Bree to anyone for any special occasion!
Wow, I don't know where to begin! We came to Maine for our 10 year anniversary and decided last minute to get maternity photos done while we were out there. Not only was Brianna prompt to respond, but she was also super helpful in giving us location ideas since we weren't familiar with the area. She also went above and beyond by letting me wear some of her beautiful maternity gowns and made me feel like a million bucks! She made us feel comfortable right away and we would 10/10 recommend her to anyone. Our beautiful photos (and the whole experience) are something we will cherish forever!
Bree was amazing! She got to my birth just in time and was very helpful throughout the birth and my photos are amazing!!
Brianna has such a sweet, kind and funny demeanor, she immediately put me at ease as soon as she appeared at my front door. As a photographer myself, I'm very uncomfortable having my photo taken, but I trusted her sensitive eye to capture my dog and I. What surprised me most was that I actually had fun while being photographed! Brianna alleviated all my stress from the get-go, so I just got to relax and hang out with my dog, and it just so happened she was making beautiful portraits at the same time! My dog passed away around a month after Brianna visited our home. I am so grateful to Breezy Photography for spending some time with us and capturing my relationship with my best friend of over fourteen years. I treasure these photographs and look at them all the time. When I realize this session almost didn't happen, my heart drops because these photos are so precious and meaningful Brianna did an amazing job! Thank you Breezy Photography!
Brianna did my new born pictures and they came out so amazing. She was so patient with my son and really took her time so he was comfortable and calm the whole time. She came right to my house it was such a wonderful experience 10/10 would highly recomend her.
Bree hands down is the best photographer in the area, she is so easy to work with and to communicate with. She also is not only there to take pictures but she joins in on the party and gets the best reactions and smiles out of everyone. My mother has passed and always said she would come back as a dragonfly, during my father daughter dance a huge dragonfly flew in and circled us a few times before it flew out. Neither Bree or I saw it but she told me she would hopefully find it in the pictures. She did not find it in the pictures during the dance but sure enough she found one during the ceremony next to my father. It is proof that my mother most certainly was there and I will always cherish that picture. My family and I will only use her for family pictures going forward and will continue to recommend her.
My husband and I booked a mini session with Breezy Photography to commemorate our fifth wedding anniversary. She was professional, friendly, and accommodating when we showed up for our session. She made the experience fun and easy. A few short weeks later she sent us the finished photos and we were blown away. Brianna has a gift; an eye for photography. You will not be disappointed. I highly recommend Breezy Photography!

My maternity and newborn sessions with Bree were impeccable! She was so kind and genuine, and really took her time to get the best shots possible. Because of the Covid restrictions in the hospital we settled on a home session for the fresh 48/newborn photos and she was so professional coming into my home and made me feel comfortable nursing my son in front of her and discussing birth and post partum things. She is a beautiful photographer inside and out and I can’t imagine bringing my business elsewhere for the professionalism and expertise she brings to the table.
Brianna is an amazing photographer that not only made our family shoots comfortable and easy, but the results were beautiful memories that we will cherish forever. Since our first shoot with Brianna, she has become a part of our family and we love and enjoy our time with her. She turns family photos into works of art, and has a gift for photography. You will not be disappointed with your experience.
