Meet the photographer

Brooks Mcfadden

I’m a traveling wedding photographer from Rexburg, Idaho with a burning passion to capture people’s stories and eat pizza like there’s no tomorrow.

I graduated with a Bachelors in Photography and Media Design. In addition to my education, I’ve gathered 7 years of photography experience shooting portraits and weddings near and far. 

For me, photography is all about the experience. It’s not just about camera settings and nice lighting, but it’s capturing love, personality, and raw emotion.

my APPROACH…

My approach to photography is focused on capturing your story and documenting your love for each other. I totally understand that being in front of the camera can be daunting, so my goal in every shoot is to start with the couple doing simple poses and loosening them up to just have fun. It makes for authentic smiles, love, and memories. 

WHERE I WORK…

I provide wedding and portrait photography mainly in the Rexburg, Idaho Falls, and Pocatello area. I also travel for weddings in the Salt Lake City, Utah area, and in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

While I’m stationed in good ole Idaho, wedding photography has brought me from the Midwest to the West Coast. (ex: Nauvoo, Illinois; Seattle, Washington area; Portland, Oregon area).

MY STYLE…

I absolutely love the look of film, with it’s natural ability to make ink on paper come to life. For this reason, I imitate this look with my photos providing true, yet dreamy colors with a classic look. My work involves both semi-posed and candid shots, providing you with a variety of authentic photos.
