Hi! I'm Brandi.

I’m a photographer, environmentalists, amateur cook, craft beer enthusiast, harry potter lover, and Sonoma County native! I am very passionate about being an environmentalists, an I continued my upper education in Geography, Environment and Planning and graduated from Sonoma State University in May 2021. I was instantly drawn to the suns golden rays and natural tones that it eventually became my signature editing style. I love to incorporate gold in in every image I capture. In the photos shared on this page you will see my fiance, Mitchell. He has been a huge impact on my photography journey and we have been together for over 10 years.

Here are a few fun facts about me!

-Trader Joe's gnocchi will be one of my go-to's

-My favorite episodes of The Office is when Creed makes himself the manager & CPR training. I cry of laugher every time.

My photography journey

I grew up being obsessed with taking photos and loved the idea that you can capture a moment in time and give context to the image. When I was young I would beg my mom for a professional grade camera as a child (who would do that? Me. LOL). I purchased my first Canon (some Ti addition) in high school. I used it until it refused to turn on. Later as an adult, I moved to Maui with my boyfriend in July 2018 and became obsessed with the islands colors and its natural golden tones. I was convinced that NEEDED a professional grade camera to capture the islands beauty. Since then I spent every waking moment educating myself all things photography and fell more in love. This is where my professional practice began and eventually launched my business in February 2021.
