I’m Brighton! You can call me B or Brighton—whatever really! I’m a destination wedding and elopement photographer with a deeply rooted love for traveling and capturing the world through my eyes. That’s one of the things I love most about photography—I can show the world the way I see things. It’s almost like an invitation to hop inside my mind and take a peek through my lens! There’s a certain uniqueness in one’s own perspective and I love to showcase that.
The raw, messy, silly, and sweet moments between two people are what make up the authenticity that I LOVE to capture. That’s what I view as REAL. I could pose you all day long, but those photos are not going to be the LIFE-GIVING photos that stir up the very feelings you had in the moment they were taken. THAT’S what I aim for! I want to serve you as best I can by documenting the feeling you felt in a way that translates through the look you give your boo, the touch of your hands, or the laugh lines on your face. It’s more than photographing, it’s storytelling.
If it smells like lavender, my nose probably isn't far. It's kind of the best smell in the world in my opinion. Mix it with vanilla, and OH BABY I'm sold. I'm at my happiest when eating Thai food... so much so that I became a regular at a Thai restaurant in town when I was in college. Like, so regular that they knew my name, my order, and recognized MY VOICE when I called in. If you ever find yourself at a Thai restaurant and you like spicy food (I LOVE it!), order the spicy basil fried rice and thank me later ;) What can I say, when it comes to good things, I just can't get enough. My husband, Chris, thinks I'm crazy for this, but I watch the same shows over and over... and over... and over. Movies aren't excluded from that either. If I love watching it, I could for my whole life. I just love to fill my time with the things that make me the happiest! I don't think that's crazy AT ALL!
Chris is my biggest encourager, my truest friend, and my most favorite human on earth! He is caring, goofy, and makes me a better me with every passing day. Life with him is the most fun. I just love being married to him! He asked me to be his wife in October of 2020 and we got married in October of 2021! Woohoo! In December of 2021, we added our cutie boy, Obi, to the fam. Yep, Chris is a Star Wars nerd. He's an Aussiedoodle and I'm literally so obsessed with him! He's crazy by day, snuggly by night and I just LOOOVEEE him!
If you decide to let me tell your story, you’ll probably hear quite a bit about them in our time together. I just can’t help it! They're my favorites!!!

"Brighton was SO kind, energetic, and exciting to work with! She was very open about what she values and very open to any of my wishes and needs. She was so flexible, fun, and encouraging through the entire process, and became a friend! She made sure to manage our time well on our wedding day, capture the sweet moments organically, and make us feel so important and loved throughout all 7+ months of working with her. Thanks Brighton, for capturing our day so beautifully and gracefully!"
"My husband and I eloped this spring and we are so glad we hired Brighton for the job. She was so kind and easy to communicate with during our time together. She helped us figure out our elopement down to the last detail! On the day of, she was so helpful and we felt so cared for. She captured our day so organically. We were so glad to have her there!"
"Brighton was truly amazing. Her calm energy and excitement for our wedding day was something I still look back and value so much. I felt like a close friend was taking our pictures and also joining in on all the love and happiness. Also, her photos turned out even better than I could’ve imagined. She completely encompassed my aesthetic and colors into her photos. Couldn’t pick a better choice to capture the most important day of our lives."
