Building a wonderful life with those you love most – that’s what it’s all about…
…And being able to not just photograph, but to be a part of, my clients’ lives is what it’s all about for me. I absolutely love getting to know my clients, and in my 15+ years of professional photography experience, I’ve been lucky to stay involved in several of their lives as they hit key milestones year after year. One of my most favorite long-time clients? None other than the Leighs. I got to know them during their engagement session, and since then, I’ve had the privilege to photograph their wedding and their growing family years later.
After catching sparks fly on camera during their engagement session in front of Hotel Del Coronado and in Gaslamp Quarter, I captured their spectacular wedding at Tom Ham’s Lighthouse some months later. A couple years afterwards, I received very exciting news from them that a maternity shoot was in order! And to my most recent delight, the Leighs shared that they had another baby on the way this past summer as well. Through all my elation over their growing family, I had to learn more about why they decided to contact me again and again after every important new chapter in their life. So I asked them, and here’s what I heard back:
“We met with a few photographers that had been recommended to us by our wedding planner. Our meeting with you [Brant] felt like we were chatting with a friend. You were knowledgeable and personable and we knew instantly it was a good fit. Additionally, we liked your vibrant photography style. At the time of our wedding, it seemed like most photographers were using muted filters. We loved that you were the opposite and embraced the bright colors. We had such a great experience with you for our wedding that it was only natural that we would continue to use you for our other big milestones.” – Chelsey Leigh
Leighs, congratulations on your newest family member and on another wonderful chapter in your lives. I can’t wait to see what comes next for your beautiful family. Before we know it, we’ll be scheduling high school senior portraits and reflecting upon the photos we took this summer! Thank you for letting me be a part of your world, and for brightening mine.
