About Photography By Brea

Breanna Shaw

Owner/Documentarian of Life

When I’m not photographing weddings, I am a rock climber, scuba diver, glass blower (#breablowsglass on instagram), ukulele, guitar, and guitarlele player, world traveler, and cat mom to Sherlock (sherlocknessmonster on instagram). During the winter, I teach a video class at the Sheffield Institute of the Recording Arts and I love having a positive impact on my students. Everything I love to do challenges me personally and makes me a stronger person. I feel the most alive when I feel connected to this beautiful planet and the people on it.

The most important thing in our short time on this planet is connection – and it’s the greatest honor of my life to be able to connect with so many amazing people and through my camera be able to show them how they love and how they are loved. After over 400 weddings and nearly a decade of this business, you’d think shooting weddings every weekend would get old. If you're just focusing on the "stuff", I'm sure it does. Weddings are about people. This is the one time in your life everyone you love will be in one room. Each wedding is unique because the dynamic between each couple and each family is unique. That’s pretty fucking cool.

    We hired Brea after seeing her in action at a friend's wedding, who came away with some incredible photos and highly recommended her to us. We are so glad that we "stole" her for our wedding! Can not speak highly enough of Brea. She is an amazing photographer with a great eye and produced beautiful shots that we will cherish forever. We used her for both our engagement and wedding photos and we are absolutely in love with the wedding album she created for us. She has a great attention to detail without feeling pushy or invasive in the process which is something I really liked.

  • Best. Decision. Ever. We love Brea!

    My fiancé mentioned offhand that he knew a really great wedding photographer before we were even engaged. I started following her on Instagram and went down a rabbit hole on her blog, and I was instantly obsessed with her. I could tell that we had a lot in common, and I immediately wanted to make her my friend in addition to being our photographer. Her talent simply blows me away. I love that her photos capture moments in time and really make you feel something when you look at them. They aren't overly posed, and that's what I really wanted for our wedding photography. We had such a good time doing our engagement photos. Brea is just fun and easy to talk to. She never makes you feel awkward or uncomfortable, and we were just able to relax and have a good time.....and it shows in our photos. We love them so much. She was also super helpful leading up to the wedding when I had random questions about veil lengths and vendor recommendations. Then she even fit us in right before the holidays to do a quick mini session with our dog for Christmas card photos. The day of the wedding, Brea was so much fun to be around while I was getting ready. My fiancé and brother had a great time hanging out with her second shooter, Jim, and Brea's mom was an absolute gem, helping out with family photos, holding my bouquet, and making sure I didn't get my dress dirty before the ceremony. They worked so well with our dog, too, who can get a little noisy! We got so many compliments from our guests about Brea’s whole team–how awesome Brea and Jim were and how wonderful Brea’s mom was running our photobooth (which was also a huge hit that we highly recommend!) Brea’s team stayed until our wedding ended at 10 PM, and she still sent us sneak peek photos that night!!! We got our full gallery yesterday, and the photos are amazing. We love every single one of them. I’m honestly not even sure how they got some of the shots they did–they truly were like silent ninjas during the ceremony–but every single one of the photos makes me smile. There are not enough words or space to express how awesome Brea and her team are. Just do yourself a favor and book her the next time you need a photographer, but especially for your wedding. You will not be disappointed.

  • Brea is a dream to work with!

    As a 14-year veteran of the wedding and event industry, I've had the privilege of working with some of the best photographers in the area. Brea is THE best! The entire experience, from start to finish, is always enjoyable for me as a collaborating vendor, and for my clients. She juggles all her responsibilities as a business owner, and everything runs like a well-oiled machine. Her demeanor on the job is friendly, professional, and endearing. And, most importantly, her body of work is out of this world. I think that goes without saying, because her portfolio speaks for itself. But I have to say it anyway because it's beyond impressive. Her work has been recognized in international publications as some of the best in the world, and when you see how evocative her images are, it's easy to see how she earned her accolades. Brea is my favorite. Simply put, if she's not available on your date, change your date! You need her.
