First off, let me thank you for your interest in my photography. My name is Brandon and I own and am the principal photographer for FotoVitae. I started FotoVitae in 2006 and specialize in wedding and engagement photography. Personally, I shoot between 25-35 weddings per year. While I’m based outside of Portland, OR, I shoot throughout the NW and Alaska. Of course, I’m also open to travel for destination weddings around the country and world.
My interest in photography started in high school and I eventually ended up studying photography in Johannesburg, South Africa…at the time, focused on wildlife photography. I’ve since realized that interacting with people is what makes the job great and I can truly say that I love what I do. Aside from studying photography, I also recieved my bacholors degree in business administration from the University of Oregon…Go Ducks! I focused on entrepreneurship which has been an incredible asset as a small business owner.
While I was in Eugene for those 4 years, I didn’t just study. I met my future wife as a freshman and we eventually married in August of 2006. Sunshine & I were married at a small cabin we built in Yaak, Montana…closeby to her hometown of Troy, MT.
Last year Sunshine and I started our family with wild twin boys, Abdur & Nursun. Fatherhood is a lot of work but an incredible adventure. I should also mention our furry children Kootenai (our cat) & Zulu (our Doberman).
