"Bridgette is incredibly talented. I would highly recommend her for any of your photo needs. This was my first photo shoot of any kind, so I was a bit nervous that I would screw up the pictures. But, Bridgette was very patient with me and very good at guiding us so that the photos would turn out beautifully. She is very personable, sweet, and fun. We had a blast with our photo shoot. Thank you again, Bridgette! You're amazing!"

“Bridgette will go above and beyond to make your pictures spectacular! We hired her to photograph my sister's wedding and on that day it was POURING rain. She wasn't phased at all and ended up getting creative and capturing the most precious moments with what she had inside to work with. She is punctual, quick to respond back, her ideas are fresh and fun, and is the sweetest lady you'll ever work with. You won't regret hurting her for your next event or photography needs!”
