"Working with Bryden Giving is one of the easiest aspects about planning a wedding. He was very on top of all the logistics and was extremely flexible to fit into our wedding day exactly how we wanted. More than that, Bryden cares about the couple he is photographing and takes the time before hand to get to know them so that he is best able to capture their day. Simply put, when you decide to have Bryden be your wedding photographer (which is the best decision) you are not only getting a photographer but someone who cares about your story and captures that through his incredible photography talent. He is easy to work with, makes the wedding party have fun while taking photos (which is more important than you may think), strives to care and understand the bride and groom, makes people feel beautiful and important, and delivers amazing photos in a timely manner that we will love forever. He is the whole package plus some so we couldn’t be more pleased with Bryden Giving Photographer."
"Choosing Bryden Giving as our photographer for our destination wedding was easily one of the best vendors we booked. We first fell in love with his photographs from another destination wedding he shot in Italy. After that, we set up a meeting with him and quickly noticed the warmth and excitement we felt from his presence. He soon traveled with us to Taylor’s Falls in Minnesota for our camping engagement shoot, and then again to Puerto Rico for our wedding. Bryden stayed with our family and friends in our beach house we rented for four days for the wedding. There he quickly became like one of our family or friends. This helped us relax and trust that our photos were in good hands! Not only does Bryden take beautifully artistic photos, he archives the entire experience in amazing photojournalism as well as his blog. For us, that meant that he documented our adventure in Puerto Rico by creating and telling our story to share with others. On our wedding day, he made sure to pay attention to all of our requests and details, and made us feel comfortable and special while also capturing everything going on around us we might not have had the time to take in. His remarkable attention to detail and artistic ability to capture such emotion blew us away! When we received our photos we sat for a couple of hours going through them with tears in our eyes. By hiring Bryden Giving Photographer you receive more than a wedding photographer; you receive a friend that provides beautiful memories captured on print that will amaze for a lifetime!We would hire him again and again.”
"Having Bryden capture both of our weddings was an absolute joy. The whole process began with an initial consultation with him, and we immediately knew we had someone who could not only take great pictures, but truly capture the emotion and happiness of the event. Bryden's professionalism and attention to detail was incredibly impressive - he arrived at the venues more than an hour earlier than when we had planned and took the time to really capture the entire experience from start to finish. For our Hindu wedding, it was amazing to see how much effort Bryden had put in to research the important parts of the ceremony so that he could accurately represent it. Throughout the big day(s) in general, Bryden's presence was a huge comfort; he was not only our photographer but our friend. After the wedding, Bryden got our pictures to us incredibly quickly and exceeded our expectations with this piece of the process as well. The personal touches Bryden added to the photo delivery box made the moment of receiving our wedding photos feel as special as the wedding day itself. Looking through the photos, I not only felt like I was reliving the wedding, but I also got to experience all of the tiny details I didn't get to fully appreciate on the day of. Bryden's ability to capture both the big moments and the small details made for wedding photos that truly told a story. I could not recommend Bryden enough; his photography and artistic skills combined with his love for storytelling and his wonderful personality makes for an unparalleled photographer. Bryden, we can't thank you enough for capturing our special day."

"We invited Bryden into our home for a family session after the birth of our third son. He immediately made us feel comfortable and relaxed. Bryden’s calm, positive, and kind demeanor put us all at ease-it was as if another member of the family was there taking pictures of us. He encouraged us to enjoy honest time together, and have fun with one another, as we moved from place to place in our home. Meanwhile, he was capturing all of the special moments that were happening between us. The session was such a good time! He limited staged photos, which made the shoot really fun for our children, and resulted in photographs that were not just pictures of people, but instead, moments in time that were filled with such beauty, joy, and love. Bryden worked so well with our kids and had fun ideas to include them in the session and keep them engaged. They never got restless. We are so grateful to have those moments to look back on as our children age. Bryden had wonderful suggestions and has an amazing artistic eye. Bryden’s photography is full of creativity and skill and his methods resulted in a selection of images that are unique, timeless, and full of character. We couldn’t be happier with our photos and we highly recommend Bryden Giving to others who want to capture the precious moments in their lives.”
