About Me

Hi there... it's so nice to meet you!

All of my life, I have always been an artist and a visual translator. Throughout the last 20+ years, my career has spanned from photographer to newsroom staff illustrator...to writer to videographer...to graphic designer to creative director to marketing director and painter...and I've pretty much done it all and then some and I am an artist to my core. 

I'm a proud graduate of Meredith College in Raleigh, NC with a BA in Graphic Design and Photography with Minors in Creative Writing and Presentation Media. I am very passionate about branding, strategy, illustration, design and most of all...photography!

My main influences include nature, all things wild and free, all of the many love stories from my clients and my ever growing playlists. YES - I have a huge love for music!

When you hire me to capture either yourself, your family, you and your sweetheart at your wedding day or your child's first milestones...know that I truly love to capture photos that tell a story and are seen from a different perspective. Photography is truly a way of art, and where I started out many years in a darkroom developing my own images BEFORE film was a cool thing...I fell in love with the magic that happens when you freeze a moment and later look at it and see what you have created in that instance.

I am currently available for all types of photography sessions. Feel free to message me about what you are looking for in photography and tell me about your ideas!

“Brandi was an absolute gem to work with! Her communication, professionalism, and attention to detail were a match to the quality she produced. She has provided my husband and I with stunning memories through our maternity photos and we definitely plan to book future family sessions with her again.”


“Brandi was a joy to work with at my son's recent wedding. She is extremely professional even when my son was being grouchy and giving her a hard time. Her photographs are stunning. I am very pleased with every aspect of working with Brandi.”


“Brandi is pure sunshine! She is a gem to work with and goes well out of her way to make sure you're comfortable and that everything is perfect, even under imperfect conditions. I have had two photoshoots with her so far, and each time she has created something incredible. I highly recommend Brandi if you are seeking a fantastic photographer who will make your fantasies come to life!”
