Brandon Kidd Photography

Photographer Brandon Kidd is on my mind today, I found his work recently and wow oh wow, brilliant! He specializes in, “creating dynamic and artistic portraits for events, parties, families and weddings,” and dynamic is right! I was reading his blog today and found so many great photos to share with you from some of the events that he has photographed in locations all over America from California to the deep south.

His photographs are poetic, he definitely has a story in his head and a feeling in his heart when he’s out shooting which directly translates into remarkable photographs — whether it’s the objects he shoots, the angle, the lighting, he brings so much more with him than a camera, a very creative mind that is curious and imaginative. If you have a moment, spend some time on his website and blog today. You’ll instantly see what I mean as you browse his portfolio and read his words, I personally love how excited he gets over an event. In one particular post he talked about all of the eye candy in terms of beautiful objects at a wedding he was shooting that he didn’t know where to begin. His infectious enthusiasm was so evident in those words and directly translated into the photographs because you could feel his energy in them. This is one man I’m bookmarking so I can peek in on his latest projects from time to time. Smitten!

Psst: Some of the above photos are from a wedding that Summer from Grey Likes Weddings, Megan Gonzalez with MaeMae Paperie and Lauryl Lane designed and styled. Such beautiful, soft colors and lots of personal handmade touches! This has to be the most beautiful wedding day I’ve ever seen in photos. Ever. Wow. I’m so impressed!

    His work is exceptional! I am most engrossed in the lighting/aged-looking tone he uses. Wonder if that is added during editing.

    Gorgeous photos! I like the dreamy vintage feel to them. That last table setting is beautiful with the mismatched chairs and vintage finds.

    what a coincidence! i just came across his work too via photographer Jasmine Star’s blog (she’s one of my faves). She recently photographed Brandon and his fiancee for their engagement pics and has their photos on her blog. beautiful!

    Hi There,

    Brandon Kidd is a professional photographer and in the same time he is so close to the public. Brilliant photos. As a enthusiastic photographer I can say that these, somehow overexposed photos, are really impressive. Warm and pleasant colors hues and saturations.
