Well, the big question is why should you hire us?
On your wedding day, Brubaker Portraits is there from start to finish; from when you get ready to your grand exit. We specialize in timeless art pieces and albums that will last for generations, capturing those moments so you can keep them close to your heart.
Oh, my gosh, YES! I will go anywhere to get the photos for you. There is something about photographing a couple in a location that they feel loved, romantic, and Carefree in. Arizona has so many iconic amazing locations throughout the state. Monument Valley, North and South Rim of the Grand Canyon, Flagstaffs towering pines and snow-covered mountain, and Sedona's red rocks. The Phoenix area alone has multiple locations that are spectacular. So pretty much anywhere in Arizona. I will go anywhere to capture the images of your dreams.
Of course! I know the feeling, so I will be talking to you throughout the session in and out of poses. Give you scenarios or prompts to act out for that more candid. If, for some reason, I stop talking to you for a moment, it just means you are in the zone and doing it right. If you start to hear me say AWESOME! Or Beautiful! a lot, it just means you are blowing my mind and I'm lost for words (except those)!
We take the time to treat you like family, get to know you and what you want for your wedding photography. We work with you on your family shot list and work with you on a wedding day timeline. Weddings can be stressful and overwhelming; we will be with you by your side every step of the way. If the timeline gets skewed, we work with it and get it back on track. We do everything we can to keep you on your timeline.
