"If there is one thing I did right when planning my wedding (other than picking out my groom) it would be working with Brad for photography."
I met Brad for one of my girlfriend’s weddings the year before when I was a bridesmaid. One of the things I like the most about him is that he is so adaptable to each and every bride he works with. I explained that of course I wanted family and wedding party traditional photos but I was really most excited about candid shots and especially of my family and friends with us at the reception. He delivered exactly what I was looking for and more! I am excited to work with him again at BOTH of my sisters weddings next year!

"Brad was the best."
"We decided to elope so I knew I wanted amazing pictures that would let us relive our special day forever. I loved his work online and social media so I reached out ASAP. He had our date available and answered all the questions I had. He pointed me in the right direction to obtain our photo permit at city park and assured me we would still be able to get my dream pictures at Jackson Square afterwards. His communication was always so quick and so helpful which put this out of staff bride at ease. When we met him the day of our ceremony he was wonderful. The pictures as saw on the back of his camera were INCREDIBLE! I literally screamed in the street, “I LOVE IT!!!!” when he showed me some! He has an eye for creativity and had us stop at multiple spots for different backgrounds. We know turn around time for pictures is several weeks but we told him we really would love just one picture back that evening so we could make our big reveal on Facebook and do family via picture. He said no problem and again went above and beyond and sent us 7 pictures that evening. This man is worth every single penny. One of the best things about him is he is so down to earth and personable and it was never awkward with him. My life goal is to get him to fly to Texas to do all of our pictures starting now until forever!!! Thank you SO much Brad!"

"However, one thing we had zero worry about was the photography. Brad and Second Line Photography removed any doubts we had about capturing our joyous day."
"On our most important and exciting days of our lives, my wife and I had so many stresses and worries on our wedding day. Flowers, cake, catering, setup, etc...... Brad’s understanding of not only the art of photography, but his ability to capture the raw emotion of marriage, whether happiness, love, or anxiety, was absolutely astounding. From suggested poses to creative and unique use of props and sentimental objects, Brad’s imagination is only trumped by his skill. Our wedding pictures turned out 1000 times better than we could have ever expected, and we had high expectations. My words can’t fully express the depth of my appreciation for Brad’s abilities. Because of him, my wife and I will never forget every happy, silly, and embarrassing moment on the happiest day of our lives. A lifetime of thanks to you Brad; because that’s how long our beautiful moments will last because of you!"

"A lot of time went into researching photographers and who I ultimately ended up going with was right under my nose the whole time."
Brad is not only a wedding photographer, he’s also an old friend. While that may lead one to believe I’d be biased towards his work, it’s actually quite the opposite. Being friends with him over the years, I’ve been able to watch his work develop and when it came time for my wedding, I truly felt like he was at the top of his game. Anyone can point and shoot a camera, but where Brad excels is in his ability to capture the moments you were actually hoping he had put his camera down for. One of those moments just happens to be one of my favorite shots of many from the evening and I’m grateful he never stopped shooting. I poured over his portfolio prior to booking and the two things that constantly came to mind was: 1) he obviously has an impressive arsenal of lenses, but 2) he had the creative eye I only saw in photographers who charged way more than he did. . He was professional, punctual, prepared, and best of all, fun. He truly does love his craft and it shows. Plus, he’ll hang from a chandelier to get your shot if that’s what he has to do! I would recommend him to any bride.

"Brad is absolutely amazing!"
"Being a professional photographer myself, finding someone to photograph our wedding was no easy feat. But from the moment we met Brad, something clicked; and hiring him was one of the best decisions we could ever have made. I often feel like a fish out of water in front of the camera, but not with Brad. His personality made me comfortable and relaxed, and that made for amazing shots. We worked together for engagement portraits, bridal portraits, and the actual wedding. Each experience was fantastic, and the only problem I had with the photos was picking which ones to print because they were all amazing. Brad's eye for capturing moments and emotion is second to none. I cannot imagine my big day without Second Line Photography, and I would recommend this company to any bride looking for the experience of a lifetime and beautiful portrait memories."

"Love Brad! He is really easy going and great to work with."
He is completely dedicated to getting the best shots for your wedding. God bless him, he literally was running up and down our secondline to get shots of everyone, crouching to get great angles at the church, and cramming himself into impossible spaces during my bridals all in the humid New Orleans summer heat. He has the best personality and will keep you laughing to make you feel at ease during a photoshoot. I loved every single shot of my wedding! I highly recommend him, you won't be sorry!
