Jeff Brummett

The Rest OF MY STORY

I’m a fan of classic Hollywood glamour – and I have the tattoos to prove it. Why do I hold Audrey Hepburn, Alfred Hitchcock and the magic of technicolor so close to my heart (and my arm)? For the same reasons I love photographing weddings….

One of my favorite movie quotes comes from Casablanca. Humphrey Bogart’s character says: “Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine…” It’s more than just a great line – it’s a way of seeing the world. Of all the photographers, and all of the websites, you found mine. And, if you’ve read this far, as Bogart would say: “I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”

Classic: outstanding work with a timeless quality

My work is informed by my film and photography training; my Fine Arts degree; and my years of studying cinematic classics. The result? Timeless, nostalgic images that bring out the star in you. I can’t help but see the love story of each couple I photograph through a lens colored by chivalry, glamour, charm, and good old-fashioned fun.

You might recognize me as the drummer from numerous terrible bands throughout high school and college. My dream of traveling the world as a rock star? It matured into traveling to shoot weddings for ‘rock star’ clients, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I'm no chef, but I love trying new dishes and drink recipes. I seek out the best local restaurants wherever I travel, and, in my next life, I hope to be a Top Chef judge. My ‘eye’ is just as discerning as my tastebuds - I love using it to make your wedding photos shine brighter than the rest.


My wife, Emily, and I love New York – and we go whenever we can. You can't beat walking through Central Park when the sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, lovers are strolling, and the city is alive with energy. I look forward to bringing out the magic in your wedding destination.

I can't go more than a few days without turning on Turner Classic Movies. Hollywood style from the ‘40s and ‘50s inspires me. Rear Window is my all-time favorite film; Grace Kelley, James Stewart, and Hitchcock are hard to beat. Ask for movie recommendations, and I’ll happily share...

A 65-pound ball of love named Delta will be right next to me while I edit your images. She was my wife’s first Christmas gift to me, one made even more special by the disastrously funny way in which Emily rescued Delta. I’ll encourage you to get your furry friends involved in photo sessions, too.

There is nothing better than film as an artistic medium: it's timeless, romantic, and full of character - just like you! I use it (in tandem with digital photography) to add an added dimension of style and art to your wedding day.

"Jeff is an expert. We swoon over every gallery he delivers to us. He's our preferred photographer because we appreciate both the depth of his talent and the content of his character."

Picking Jeff as our photographer was the best decision we made. Photography was the most important item on our list and Jeff exceeded our expectations. He's sweet, kind, humble... but on top of it all, he's the most talented photographer I've ever met. He captured moments of love and happiness that will last us a lifetime, and that's such a beautiful gift to give.

During a hectic day, Jeff was very patient with me and my bridal party. Seriously, he was calm throughout the day and I never felt like he was pushing me. Jeff worked with my schedule and in return gave me one less thing to worry about!
