Good monday morning! We have a very talented vendor to share with you all this morning. Anyone on the hunt for their wedding photog will have fun poring over Brion’s blog for at least the whole morning. So much color!

Brion Hopkins is based out of Santa Barbara, where he went to school for photography at the Brooks Institute. After working for Elite Model Management for a bit, he felt like he wanted to shoot something more real. And weddings turned out to be the perfect focus, because he’s always been in love with people being in love, (which he attributes to his older sister making him watch Anne of Green Gables over and over when he was young). And you can totally see his background in his modern take on wedding photography. In his own words:

“I love shooting people in love and I try take a lifestyle photography approach to it. I want to ensure that 20 years from now these photos will still look stylish by keeping my work creative, airy, elegant, captivating and cinematic.”

And he travels wherever you want to send him.

  1. Haha! That’s funny. I grew up with his older sister, and she did indeed, spend some time at our house watching Anne!:)

  2. Thats a beautiful group shot in front of the barn!

  3. Love the photo with all the colors of the rainbow. And all the others, for that matter. Apparently a childhood full of Anne of Green Gables pays off quite well, haha!

  4. Love Brion’s work! Great style and color, also I really like his logo :)

  5. Great Idea, Everyone in black except the bride, I love it !

  6. Beautiful work! Very fresh and creative. Love the textures in the photos!

  7. Divinely beautiful art Brian. In the words of Browning,
    “The good starts met in your horoscope,
    made you of spirit and fire and dew”

  8. Love the photos! My favorite is the shot of the church steeple with the couple walking on the grounds outside. Love the backdrop, great shot! Way to go !!!

  9. So gorgeous! Everything is beautiful, and I love the color! That church picture looks almost surreal.

  10. Great pictures Brion! What a talent! I still love all the color.

  11. Wow, Brion’s work is fantastic!

  12. Wow, these are beautiful!!! And indeed, timeless. Great work, Brion!

  13. The love of love reflects in the photos!

  14. The rainbow theme photo is really fun. I also like the one with a towering church over the bride and groom. Great work!

  15. Just a note regarding Brion Hopkins. He Took our wedding photos a year ago and disappeared. Beware.

  16. Brion Hopkins is irresponsible and only a so-so photog. My daughter was married last July and he simply has disappeared. He does not return phone calls or emails. We paid up for his expenses and he doesn’t seem to care. We have even called his parents to no avail.
    STAY AWAY FOR BRION HOPKINS!!!!!

  17. While Brion’s photography is lovely, he is completely unresponsive and unprofessional. Before our wedding, he wouldn’t respond to phone calls or emails for months. Then it took him forever to get us our photos. Now, a year and half later, he still hasn’t finished the job we hired him to do and is once again unresponsive to phone calls and emails. I agree with the reviewer above: DO NOT HIRE HIM!

  19. we hired Brion (and I may have even posted positively above) for our April 2011 wedding and had a terrible experience identical to the other reviewers above. DO NOT HIRE THIS PERSON! His photos are amazing, but he cannot be trusted to deliver your photos or communicate in any way once you have paid him. Great talent, horrible person. Who would do something like that with people’s wedding photos?? THIS GUY!

  20. My wife and I had the same problem with Brion not delivering our wedding photos. I finally tracked down his parent’s home phone number and through that channel was able to get him to send me the pictures. The number is 360-956-1043. Hopefully this helps for those that have still not received their photos. Good luck.
