Joshua Brown is a true photojournalist. He studied photojournalism at one of the best programs in the country, and started out shooting very small, simple weddings that defined his documentary style early on. He says, “What it did was make me hyper focused on documenting people and moments rather than things.” He’s now traveled worldwide shooting hundreds of weddings, and is experienced enough to anticipate the important moments before they happen.
One of his brides sums up her experience with Joshua perfectly: "He has the creative eye to capture moments, emotions, and experiences. He doesn’t like posed or forced moments. His ability to be in the shadows allows for the most authentic moments and true expressions. I have seen many photographers interrupt and dictate how the bride and groom should walk and what to do, which doesn’t feel natural. I was able to be myself on my wedding day and do whatever I wanted—and feel like the day was captured wonderfully. Josh did pull us aside several times to get some formal pictures, but never told us to ‘redo the walk in’ because he missed it or something…He never misses a thing."

“He made the day not only memorable with all the pictures, but he actually let me LIVE my wedding. He wasn’t distracting or overt, he is conspicuous and always looking for the moments to capture. He integrated perfectly and I still have no idea how he captured so many amazing moments! I was beyond thrilled.”
“He sent me a list of initial proofs almost immediately and my spouse and I looked at them over and over again on our honeymoon and couldn’t stop smiling. How did he get all those incredible shots? It was more than I had hoped for and by far the best money I spent on my wedding.”
“Joshua’s specialty is being unobtrusive and mixing with people—not sticking out like a sore thumb as a photographer. That tends to put people more at ease around him, and as such, he captures amazing candid moments.”
“His photographs focused on capturing the emotion and ‘feel’ of the day. The emotion he is able to capture in his photographs is beautiful.”
“He isn’t one to use Photoshop to fix things up; he likes to prepare the setting so everything feels natural and authentic (not many photographers think that way!).”
“Josh captured all the moments we had hoped they would, in the style we had wanted.”
“Communicating with him is actually perfect because he is succinct, doesn’t beat around the bush, and lays everything out.”
“One of the cool things that we learned during our engagement shoot with Joshua was that his camera doesn’t make a shutter sound, so when we were actually getting married in church you didn’t hear him at all.”
“The photos and video were received in a timely manner and everything looked absolutely perfect. We actually received our highlight video and all photos before we returned from our honeymoon, so it was fun to relive the night while being on our honeymoon.”
“I have had several friends/family employ Joshua Brown after seeing our incredible wedding photos on social media (without me even having to recommend).”
“Joshua was really responsive to our needs and really LISTENED to us. He was a quiet, calming presence on a hectic day and made everybody comfortable. I would wholeheartedly recommend him because not only are his photos some of the best wedding photographs my family and I have ever seen, but he was also excellent to work with. Worth every penny and I’d work with him again in a heartbeat.”
