Welcome to my portfolio! My name is Brandon and I’m the owner and lead photographer at FotoVitae. As a full-time wedding photographer, I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to capture and document the most important day in my client’s lives. It gives me pride to think about how many of my photos are displayed and how many memories are relived through them every day…I LOVE my job!
Based in Portland, I work with around 40 local couples, each year, and find myself traveling for another 5-10 weddings throughout the Northwest. If you have spent time looking through my work, you will notice I approach weddings with a candid, photojournalistic style, capturing true emotion rather than stiff, staged scenes. After clients have a chance to view their galleries, my favorite comment is how I was able to capture so many moments, that they themselves had missed, on their wedding day.
Before I started FotoVitae, I learned to compose shots and develop b&w film in my high school photography class (that makes me sounds really old). At the time, photography was a hobby and I went on to study Entrepreneurship at the University of Oregon (GO DUCKS!). While “studying”, I met my beautiful wife, Sunshine, and after graduation we moved to Johannesburg, South Africa where I attended The School of Photo and turned my hobby into my career.
Today, when I’m not working, you’ll find us hiking with our three wild kids, in Forest Park, or camping in one America’s amazing National Parks…camera in-hand.
