Weddings truly are the Best Day Ever. They come in all shapes and sizes... from intimate elopements to multi-day celebrations. Each couple invest time, emotion, and energy into bringing their vision to life-- and regardless of the details, the budgets, and guest counts the day is ultimately made great by your union and your commitment to LOVE. As your wedding photographer my role is one that's complimentary yours. I take on the responsibility and privilege of capturing the priceless moments of this day then returning them back to you --so you can relive, revisit and share them with your friends and family. These photos will represent your "Day One" as a married couple and they'll be beautiful.

"There was not one detail missed in the visual documentation of our wedding day. We are beyond grateful for Steve and his team at Brilliant Captures. We highly recommend ..."
Steve and Janell were absolutely amazing to work with. They worked with both our finances and our crazy schedule due to long distance with patience and understanding. They were an enormous help in just planning the wedding. Janell talked me through each step of my big day in order to ensure the best timeline was scheduled. Not only are they personable and so helpful, their pictures are breathtaking and better than I could have imagined myself. I highly recommend them for any of your photography needs!
"Steve made our whole experience seamless and uncomplicated. He was easy to work, full of enthusiasm, and kept our wedding guest and bridal party engaged throughout the whole day. Our photos are incredible and we are so thankful . 5 stars all the way!!"

He was open to suggestions that my wife and I might have regarding certain shots or situations we were interested in capturing, while continuing to use his professional judgement to ensure our photos turned out exactly how we wanted! Janell was so helpful and considerate. She helped put our mind at ease and handled so many small details to perfection!
