Thinking about ditching old-school wedding traditions to keep authenticity, intentionality, and deep connection at the core of your special day?

Adventurous Wedding & Elopement Photographer

Say hello to a road map of endless possibilities. Your love story is anything but ordinary, so why should your wedding be? It’s time to ditch your ideas on what a wedding day ‘should be’ or what everyone else thinks it should look like. Your wedding day should be all about the love that you two share and nothing else. What do you say? Ready to skip the beaten path and find something more your speed? This is probably for you if you're hollering “YES!” from the mountaintops.

Hey, hi, howdy! I’m Brandi, the laid-back, outdoorsy, go-with-the-flow, always packed for the "just in case" photographer around these parts.

On a more personal note

I believe your wedding should look however the hell you want it to. I'm here not only as your photographer but as your personal pack mule, the offerer of advice and ideas, and supplier of whatever junk is in my trunk to help your day move comfortably. Last but not least, I consider myself a safeguarder of the boundaries and rules you have to kick off for your big once-in-a-lifetime adventure together.  When I'm not chasing love stories, I'm chasing sunrises, two howling huskies, and my best friend, wherever the wind takes us. We're building our Northwoods hobby farm dream.

I'm not your average photographer, whether you need help with:

carrying your charcuterie board and wine to your sunset lookout point

breaking the news to family and friends

selecting meaningful locations

creating a timeline for your best day ever

tips for keeping your clothes clean on the trail

pulling permits for your favorite adventure spot and vow exchange

I'm here every step of the way as you dream big for your smaller, more intimate, more you wedding. Let’s say hell no to anything that doesn't feel like you.

As a bit of a social drifter, I understand the challenges of carving out your own path and doing what feels authentic. 

While there's room for tradition, I believe in attention to intention, creating a wedding experience that honors you as a couple with plenty of space for deep emotional connection, quality time, and fun. This is all about your life-long commitment to each other, so why not say your vows in your favorite place on Earth, doing something you love together? If you're ready to swap a hectic wedding day of coordinating vendors, entertaining guests, and navigating family drama for something more relaxed and you-focused, lace up your boots. Don’t worry; I have all the necessary tools, experience and resources you’ll ever need.

We were open to anything for our engagement photos, and Brandi really took them to the next level!!! 

She is such a fun and sweet person to be around! We really didn't know what to expect during our session, but she really took the time to get to know us and made us feel comfortable during our time with her. I would highly encourage anyone to book their photos with her!!

Brandi is hands down the most fantastic photographer all around.

Her engagement photos captured our relationship perfectly, and her candid photos are amazinggg!! She made us feel so comfortable and the shoot was such a fun & relaxed environment. And she promptly edited our photos & made them extremely accessible to download. I could not emphasize enough how much we recommend her!
