After 6 full years of taking on alllll the weddings and loving every single second of it, I let life get away from me for a while and found myself a slave to my business. As I transition into motherhood this upcoming year (2023), I'm going to really make sure I take on less weddings and elopements allowing me to give those couples my absolute best!
I love all celebrations from 2 people to 200+ guests and everything in between. I've tried the whole niching down thing and focusing on just elopements vs the whole spectrum of events and let me tell you, I missed full size weddings too! I genuinely love them all so much and want your day to be perfect for YOU, whatever that may look like!
I believe in kindness above all else, and I’ll support you in planning your perfect day. I’m all about getting in there and staying involved throughout the process - you can’t keep me behind the lens! I’ll basically become your built-in best friend and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I’m Brogan, and I’m an intimate wedding and elopement photographer based out of Oregon. I started working weddings while assisting other photographers in my area, and oh my did I fall in love. Everything about it was magical, and I knew it was the direction my heart wanted to take.
Now, this was a shock because it wasn’t what I thought I wanted. I’ll be real with you - I never wanted to become a wedding photographer. I honestly thought that it would be difficult dealing with the intense emotions of the wedding day, and I wanted to avoid allll of that stress. Jokes on me, right?!
One of my favorite parts of my job is connection. Seeing the mindblowing relationship between you and your love, getting to know my couples, and holding onto those friendships for years to come. I love getting to know YOU, and learning more about your story. I truly bond with the couples I work with, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I know I’m a photographer, but that’s not all. I’m your personal hype girl and I can’t wait to cheer you on. If you need someone to listen to your frustrations, give an opinion, answer your questions, or anything else under the sun, I’m here for you. I’ll be your built-in wedding bestie and if there’s something you need I will make it happen.
I love ALL love here. And it’s so important to me that every couple I work with feels truly seen and understood. The beauty of being a wedding photographer is that each couple has their own unique story, and I get to see it all. I can’t wait to work with you and get to know you on a deeper level.
Oh man, I LOVE to travel. So whether you want to hike up a mountain in the Pacific Northwest or say “I do” on a beach in Maui, count me in. I love adventure so if you’re all about a destination wedding, SIGN ME UP. My bags are already packed.
I'm a dog mom and, yes, I'm very proud!
I lived on a Caribbean island for a year while I went to Vet School! Then dropped out. Oops.
Books are my jam - I’m always reading something new.
I’ll randomly burst into song throughout the day (sit back and enjoy the show).
“That’s what she said” jokes are my favorite brand of comedy. I apologize in advance if you hear one too many.
"She is a literal photography master and is just an overall wonderful ally to have as a vendor on your wedding day. She doesn't just snap photos and call it done - she is there every step of the way before, during, and after. Never once does it feel awkward posing for so many hours because she makes it fun and easy and effortless. I clearly have picked Brogan multiple times, and I would continue to pick her 100x over. Don't think, don't keep looking, just book Brogan.”
You exceeded our expectations! We couldn't have picked a more perfect fit for someone to capture the day. We appreciated all of your flexibility, efforts in finding our beautiful location spots, answering all our questions and your humble and kind nature. We were able to enjoy the day, be ourselves and not have a worry in the world. You are so talented and truly blew us away!
"Working with Brogan was the best decision we could have ever made for our wedding. The whole day was absolute MAGIC. And let me tell you, the photos she took captured it all. Each photo was better than the last. She captured every emotion, every laugh, and every seemingly little moment. Our final gallery included so many photos from every angle and distance - it’s amazing to realize they were all taken by one person! The quality of her work is impeccable."
"From the get-go, she was prompt, organized, detailed, and just all around lovely. She made us feel at ease during our engagement shoot and she was an actual angel on our wedding day. She offered locations for both shoots. This woman is amazing! If you want a photographer who does way more than her fair share of coordinating while making you feel like you’ve made a friend, she’s your gal. The pictures were stunning, but that was only a part of the whole experience.
She did such a great job leading up to the wedding and at the wedding itself. She was available for any question we had and was organized and ready the day of. She took amazing photos and made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera. I cannot say enough good things about my amazing experience with Brogan!
She has such a calm, chill attitude which helps so much with the stress of a wedding. At the same time she is an efficient machine with all of her photos; I never once had to worry that a moment wasn't being captured or photos were taking too long. Brogan was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding and I am so happy and lucky she was able to be a part of my special day!!
Your elopement can span oceans, time zones, days, or be as simple as a quick hour in your favorite spot.
