       In my almost 10 years of experience documenting weddings, one thing has remained  the same - I approach each wedding that I photograph with the same passion and  dedication as I would document my very own. I understand that you want your special day to be a memorable, fun, celebration of  your love for each other. And believe me - that’s so much easier to do when you  know your photographer can handle the delicate balance of capturing sweet intimate  details throughout your day while also ensuring that your wedding stays on your  desired timeline. I believe that you deserve to have your love story captured in a way that is as unique  as you are. I customize each wedding experience to tailor fit the vibe of each of my  couples. You can rest assured that my combined education (Bachelor’s Degree in Professional Photography) and tenured wedding photography experience ensures  that I have both the technical and creative experience needed to truly bring your  vision to life. With Brigitte Patterson Photography, you not only gain a wedding photographer,  but you also gain a wedding partner. From the initial meet and greet, to the  complementary engagement session, to phone chats getting the timeline and desired  details just right, I enjoy spending time with each of my couples to learn them well  enough to craft the wedding experience of their dreams.

MY PHILOSOPHY (CONT'D)

Jordan + Adam

"Where do I begin?? I found Brigitte on Instagram and fell in love with her timeless style. I especially loved all of the classic black & white shots! She's extremely professional and replied promptly to all emails. She's super knowledgeable and experienced about the whole process, from the consultation to the engagement session and finally the wedding day. I was overwhelmed with the planning process from early on, and she helped answer a lot of questions. The photo checklist was super helpful in getting the last minute details organized. Our wedding day ended up being pretty windy, but you could never tell from the photos. She even delivered a "sneak peak" of our wedding within 48 hours! She's so incredibly talented. The online gallery is so easy to use and share with family and friends. All of our photos were beautiful and will be treasured forever. I would recommend Brigitte again and again!"

hannah + jacob

"A MUST-HAVE FOR YOUR WEDDING DAY! Brigitte did our engagement photos and day-of wedding photos and we are so glad. She is amazing to work with and her work is BEAUTIFUL! She went above and beyond to ensure she captured the day wonderfully. Some of our favorite photos are of family and friends at the wedding. We could not recommend her more!"

ALICIA + ROBERT

"There are simply not enough words to detail the reasons Brigitte deserves ALL the stars for just how amazing she is. Starting with the engagement photos and knowing how to perfectly handle a not-so-into-posing fiance who couldn't figure out what he got himself into. Needless to say, by the end of the session we were all laughing and enjoying the experience and the photos were just perfect. And then there was the pre-wedding questionnaire. Extensive but for good reason! Brigitte doesn't want to miss a thing. We listed every friend and family member we wanted pictures with, every sentimental object we wanted remembered and even a little note about some horse pictures. She didn't disappoint! She showed up a little early to get herself acquainted with everyone and with the flow of the morning. She even managed our teenage boys and got them to the right places and worked seamlessly with our DJ to make sure we stayed on track with our timeline. Brigitte made the wedding as relaxing as a wedding can be and made sure we were happy. My final note, because it is so important, when we got our wedding photos I could not have asked for anything better. I never expected anything this beautiful. Not because I didn't trust her skills but I had never seen anything like it. I've been to several wedding and viewed countless Facebook albums but I've never seen anything like this. Friends and family alike cannot stop complimenting on how magazine ready the shots look. From the staged to the candid, they all represent our special day beautifully. You will be so thankful you chose Brigitte, I have never seen more perfect work."

Morgan + Paul

"Brigitte did an amazing job on our engagement photos and wedding!! Her style of shooting and editing was exactly what I was looking for. She's so friendly and professional. We had a great time working with her! Neither of us are super comfortable getting our photos taken but she made us feel so confident and comfortable. Our photos turned out absolutely stunning!!"

lindsey + bryan

"Brigitte is INCREDIBLE!! My fiance and I both consider ourselves non-photogenic people - and she made us look AMAZING! Brigitte is extremely professional and has an excellent seamless process from start to finish - her website and forms are clear, easy to use, and set both you and her up for a painless experience the day of the wedding. Brigitte takes care to get to know you and your fiance personally, so she is able to tailor your photos to you as best as possible. She also created many black and white and color photos, and edited/filtered them BEAUTIFULLY. She creates truly wonderful photos at a very reasonable price point. We cannot recommend her enough!! :)"

EMILY + STEVEN

"Brigitte is absolutely amazing! She’s punctual, quick to respond, and sooo much more than just a photographer. She has an ability to capture the most beautiful and candid moments. She captures gorgeous lighting and has amazing focus. On my wedding day, she helped lend advice and kept me calm. We absolutely loved her and the pictures are gorgeous!"

Allison + Michael

"I am SO HAPPY we worked with Brigitte on our wedding day!!! She is not only a great photographer, but also a great person. She is so friendly, timely, and very professional. She takes on the "planner" role smoothly, making sure our timeline went according to plan. We had a big wedding party and I was nervous that a photographer wouldn't be able to herd the rowdy guys. Brigitte was able to keep everyone in line and was kind in the process. AND THE PHOTOS. Wow. We literally can't choose our top 75 favorites. There are too many beautiful photos to choose from! She listened to my "picture requests" ahead of time and made sure to get the family/ couple photos we wanted so we didn't have to think about it on our wedding day. We have traditional beautiful photos and the pure emotion of the candid photos. I tear up every time I see the photo of my dad seeing me for the first time. Her photos allow me to "go back" and think of the emotions I was feeling in that moment. These are the photos that made me realize just how crazy talented she is. Our wedding was a perfect blur of love and excitement, and honestly, I didn't notice some of the details. Brigitte captured the details of the day and I am so thankful we have these memories. I am forever grateful to Brigitte!!!! We are SO happy we used her."

Chelsea + Jeff

"I am SO grateful we chose Brigitte as our wedding photographer. Not only did our photos turn out AMAZING but she was a delight to work with. Thanks so much, Brigitte! We are so grateful for the amazing gift you gave us— of capturing the memory of our beautiful day. These photos are priceless heirlooms that we will treasure forever. It’s hard to remember all the details of my wedding day— it went by SO fast, but you were able to capture all the right moments and now I can relive the day over and over again. Your talent and eye are a gift you give to your clients that is irreplaceable."

Lynne + Oscarr

"Brigitte was AMAZING from start to finish! We had originally had her booked for a March 2020 wedding but due to COVID, we were forced to reschedule to August. She was extremely flexible and understanding with the date change and was more than happy to help us through that challenge. For the wedding, I wanted someone who was going to make sure that we stayed on time while also getting all the photos I wanted. She did exactly that! With her questionnaire, I was able to make a list of the photos I wanted and make note of the timeline so she could help keep the Wedding Party and families on track. Now for the photos, our pictures were absolutely STUNNING and we have gotten so many compliments on them! I have already recommended Brigitte to so many people and would encourage anyone who is considering her to book her!"

Lauren + cody

"Brigitte is the absolute best!! I love all our photos from the engagement session to getting ready day of and of course the formal wedding photos. She met with us in person, over the phone and checked in to make sure we got everything we wanted to remember the best day ever!! She is also very organized and will get you sneak peeks so quick! She really is passionate about her work and does a fabulous job! Thank you BPP!!"

"Brigitte is AMAZING!!! She is absolutely wonderful to work with. I was a covid bride and had a small ceremony last summer (2020) and then our big reception/vow renewal this summer (2021). Brigitte was so accommodating and went over the top to help us out! She ended up photographing our covid ceremony as well as our vow renewal this summer. I couldn't imagine working with anyone else!! And not to mention her pictures are UNREAL. She is such a hard worker and goes above and beyond to make you feel special! We would recommend Brigitte every. single. day!"

Kristen + Jim

"I’ve had the pleasure being in wedding parties that have booked Brigitte as a photographer. After seeing her amazing work at previous weddings there was no question, I would book her. With Brigitte, it’s like you get a coordinator and photographer all in one. Her timelines are extremely detailed, and she is wealth of knowledge in the wedding industry. My husband and I are not fans of taking pictures and I really appreciate how Brigitte adapted to what we were comfortable with. She is laid back and efficient with her time. We had an unforeseen hiccup with our original picture location and she quickly adapted to find another one (I ended up liking it better)! I look forward to having Brigitte be our photographer for events in the future."

Ashley + Sam

"Brigitte is just beyond amazing and she captured my day so well. She knows how to make you look good in every photo regardless of sweat and awkward photo tendencies. She captured the perfect angles and all of the sweet, candid moments of our day. She even picked grasshoppers out of my train while we walked through a field of tall grass for sunset photos. What I love most about Brigitte’s photos are that they are timeless and they will still be beautiful and what we wanted 20 years from now. When she sent me our sneak peak, I just started crying. I loved every single photo, and it was just the sneak peak. She is a joy to work with! She works SO HARD on your day. We had to tell her to take a couple breaks because she was going nonstop. I can’t even imagine how many photos she will be looking through from our day! Booking Brigitte will be one of the best decisions you make."

chloe + dan

"Our story of how we came to find Brigitte is unique, but I am SO glad we did! We originally had another photographer booked but in July of 2020, a year before our wedding, they closed their business and left us searching for someone new. Enter Brigitte. I firmly believe everything happens for a reason, because I can't imagine anyone other than Brigitte capturing our day. From our engagement pictures where she somehow managed to take my awkward self and capture beautiful images of me and my fiance, to our wedding day. There was rain in the forecast for our wedding day and I was in a panic wondering what we would do, Brigitte texted minutes later reassuring me she had plenty of umbrellas should we need them. Her attention to detail is something you want in a photographer and I appreciated that so much. She has a clean, bright and airy editing style, which was something important to me and my fiance. We wanted our pictures to look beautiful, but still capture the moment in its true form without over editing. Brigitte does just that! She had a sneak peek for us within days of our wedding and another one within a week. She exceeded every expectation I had and I cannot wait to cherish the photos for years to come."

Megan + Chad

"Brigitte was awesome! She was great to work with on our engagement pics as well as our wedding day.. Good communication, quick responses to questions (and believe me, we had a lot).. Great to work with, she did a spectacular job on all the photos, I cant say enough good things about her.. Absolute pleasure to work with and very reasonably priced! Choose Brigitte, you WON'T be disappointed!"

NICOLE + KYLE

"She is amazing! Her pictures are so great! She gets every picture you want and more!! She knows great places to take pictures and knows all the angles! She is the best!!!"
