Hey there, I'm Brittany ....
take photos of people who exude love + joy in their most authentic moments
Most days you can find me working in yoga pants with a smile on my face and my mini goldendoodle, Clifton, in my lap. I am a storyteller, fashion lover, dreamer and a travel junkie. I love eating grilled cheese and tomato soup, exploring new countries and binging on HGTV. Life is an endless adventure, and I believe you should do what makes your soul shine.
I ditched my advertising career to follow my heart and document love stories. I realize I have the best job in the world. I photograph love and life and in the process gain beautiful friendships when my clients become friends.
My photography is carefree, romantic, and authentic. My goal is to make it light and fun, so I can capture the in between moments that naturally unfold.
So, let’s become friends and create something amazing together.
WANNA KNOW MORE ABOUT ME? HERE ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE THINGS.
I have explored six continents in the last five years. Kenya, Cuba, Morocco, Greece + Brazil are high on my list of countries to check out next.
Some might think I am a cacti hoarder. But let's be real here .... I love these little prickly plants oh so much because they can survive my unique (read : infrequent) watering schedule.
CLIFTON, OUR FURBABY
Clifton is an F1b mini goldendoodle who stole our hearts the moment we met him. We named him after our favorite beach in South Africa.
SUN + SAND
I am a complete beach bum at heart. My perfect day off is an afternoon soaking up the sun with a good book and something bubbly (prosecco, perhaps).
We purchased our first house last fall, and I love decorating it. California boho mixed with mid-century modern styles are my current favs.
It all began with my dad's 1980's Nikon film camera that he documented my childhood on. Now, I have collected over 30 cameras, and my collection continues to grow.

MEET THE BBP TEAM
Learn what makes us laugh, what we adore and find out about why the BBP team are the perfect extra bridesmaids for your wedding day
When I am not photographing lovebirds, you can find me running on Lake Shore Drive (hello, perfect Lake Michigan views!), relaxing on the couch with my rescue pup, Cooper or binge-watching the newest series on Netflix (yes, to XXX). I am obsessed with country music, California rolls, and traveling.
I am the relaxed-and-fun photographer who knows the magic trick to getting the flower girls + ring bearers smiling in every photo. I believe your wedding photos should be a true reflection of you and your love. I aim to infuse laughter into every shoot and make sure there is still to simply enjoy your wedding day.
social media guru + photo intern
I am mostly known as being the small, petite girl with a big personality! My absolute favorite thing to do is make people smile and laugh - even if its just them laughing at me. I love capturing authentic moments of people and showing them how much their beauty reflects in my images.
I’m a junior at Aurora University, a sweet, small school close to home. My notes from class are covered in cute hand-lettered quotes. When I’m not wrapping up assignments, I am day-dreaming of working side-by-side with Chip + Joanna (because those two are the dream-team when it comes to style), browsing Instagram, or grabbing a yummy cup of coffee with my friends.
