    Fun and Creative

    We worked with Brian for both our engagement and wedding photos. Bran was absolutely phenomenal to work with. He was very professional but so down to earth and easy to talk to. Our engagement photos turned out way better than we could have ever imagined and we cannot wait to see our wedding photos. I highly suggest Kinfolk Photography, their work is stunning.

    Gorgeous in the moment action shots, beautiful edits

    We are in love with our photos. One thing I noticed when looking at Brian's portfolio was his ability to capture natural, in the moment shots. Brian really helped us capture this, which is what we were looking for on our wedding day. He was so happy to speak to us before hand to understand what we were looking for and was so friendly, accommodating, and positive throughout the whole process. Brian is so talented in so many different types of photography and he was able to give us something just perfect. Thank you so much, Brian.

    I would 120% recommend Brian and his team- they are absolutely AMAZING! From the moment we met Brian we felt at ease and looked forward to how he would capture our wedding. On the big day he arrived ahead of time and everything was just easy! He snapped away as the events rolled out, giving direction when needed but definitely not overly structured or directing everyone and making things feel stiff. The moments he captured are just amazing- we had a fun loving wedding party and he just embraced everything and we have those memories to hold on to forever and ever. We were given access to our sneak peek a couple weeks after our wedding and had the fancy USB with all our images a few months later- which considering how busy he was this past fall was pretty great in my books!

    I love my wedding photos! Brian was on time with lots of great ideas for poses and shots. Loved every second of the day and Brian captured it perfectly! I am so glad that I found White Leaf Photography to photograph Tony's and my special day. I will definitely be using their services again in the future for some family photos.

    Exactly as Advertised

    We chose Brian based on the aesthetic of his portfolio. His photos and editing definitely have a certain "look" and it matched what we were searching for. We were so pleased with the final results, our pictures were simply perfect and came out even better than we imagined. Brian was so nice and professional. He walked the grounds with us before our ceremony, searching for many different photo locations. We had a really great experience and recommend Brian without hesitation.

    Thanks so much Nathan! It was so fun to meet you guys and the doggy. Thank you for having me as your photographer, and thanks for the beer too ;)

    I can't say enough how happy we are with White Leaf Photography. Our pictures are breathtaking, which we expected after seeing Brian' s portfolio. What we didn't expect was how comfortable we would be getting our picture taken all day. Brian and Ashley went above and beyond all day and helped inspire some incredible moments that we now have on film. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!!

    White Leaf Photographs went above and beyond

    From the moment I had booked White Leaf Photographs through e-mail, I knew that we had made the right choice for our wedding photos. Brian was amazing with responding in a quick, timely manner which makes a HUGE difference during a stressful time like planning one of the most important days of your life.

    My husband and I are very camera shy and were a bit nervous to have our photos done. Our nerves quickly calmed once we met Brian during out engagement session. He is one of the most friendly, down to earth guys I have met and made the experience very enjoyable. When we received our photos I was amazed. I couldn't believe how stunning they were.

    For our wedding, we had booked Brian and Ashley as we wanted every angle possible so we didn't miss any memories on our special day. Ashley is just as amazing as Brian. Seriously the best people. They both we above and beyond for me. A button had popped off on the back of my dress about a half hour before I was to walk down the isle. While my bridesmaids and I frantically tried to fix it, Brian and Ashley searched for a sewing kit at the hotel, brought it back to us, and even helped sew my button back on my dress. Somehow during this time they managed to capture the most stunning photos of all the girls and guys getting ready. Ashley had even carried a juice box that my maid of honor could not carry in her purse for me in case I needed a boost later on in the day.

    I would 100% recommend White Leaf Photographs. My photos are absolutely amazing. I am so lucky to have had them photograph my wedding.

    Kinfolk Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for the feedback Melissa! We had such an awesome time working with you guys. All the best to you both :)

    Brian far surpassed our expectations as our wedding photographer. He was a pleasure to work with - very easygoing and relaxed. He got some amazing shots with great angles and obviously very much enjoys his work. We were delighted with the final collection. He pays attention to every detail, even down to the custom wooden USB stick which holds the collection. He really does portray a story through his pictures and it is one we shall cherish for a lifetime! We would recommend Brian to everyone and hope to work with him again in the future!

    Kinfolk Photography's reply:

    Thanks for your comment Sophia and Ryan! It was so much fun to be a part of your wedding, and such an honour to photograph such a unique endeavour. All the best!

    Extraordinary Photography

    Brian with White Leaf Photographs is absolutely exceptional. Not only is he extremely talented, he is kind, outgoing, caring, and has an eye for the most beautiful shots. We were amazed with how relaxed we were with Brian during our engagement photos, and I cried when I saw our photos! We were so blown away, we booked him for our wedding and we couldn't be happier for our choice. Our wedding day is forever captured with the most gorgeous shots, all thanks to Brian. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
