B. Whitson Photography | Testimonials

Brenna is hands down the most fun photographer for whom a couple could ask. My fiancé, Lisa and I had Brenna shoot our engagement photos at a local barn in Boone.  As college friends, my fiancé had no doubt that she wanted Brenna to take our photos, and despite my nervousness the photos turned out absolutely perfectly.  Lisa and I could not have asked for a better experience.  We even went so far as to bring our dogs along for the shoot, and Brenna worked her magic in getting the rowdy animals to stay put for what turned out to be some of our favorites.  Brenna is a very professional, attentive, and highly respectable photographer with a very versatile and creative mind for photography, and heart for her customers.  She truly does go above and beyond to make the experience special and unique for everyone.  Brenna, thank you for the wonderful session.  Lisa and I could not be happier! ~Greyson R.


Brenna did my “never too late” engagement photos, after the fact (a few years after we were married, ahem)!  Together, we brainstormed about places to have them taken—she even shared some places downtown Blowing Rock which my husband and I never even thought.  Brenna, by nature, is very easy going, and so it was very easy and FUN to work with her!  She not only made me feel at ease, but Ben, as well.  She had GREAT ideas of places and poses and reassured me that the pictures would be to my liking….I was skeptical due to the rainy weather and overcast skies, but she actually used the weather conditions to our benefit—and she was right—I received so many compliments on them, and yes, they were very much to my liking!  Several of our photos were of us laughing and that is definitely on purpose!  She took our ideas into consideration and even allowed us to choose places and poses and worked them in to fit.  I even had ideas of re-creating my style, so she was totally on board with me doing wardrobe/hairstyle changes—she even gave me cues on that, which, of course, made me feel even more important—much like she was my very own personal paparazzi!  All in all, Brenna has a true skill and keen eye; Ben and I give her 4 thumbs up, and will definitely use her expertise again in the future!  ~ Melinda and Ben R.


I have beautiful pictures of my son that I will cherish forever thanks to B. Whitson Photography.  I was a little nervous- a newborn session is not something you can try again if it doesn't go well and there are LOTS of factors working against beautiful newborn photos, but Brenna was there, completely confident and calm.  Once I got my photos, I was THRILLED!  They turned out great and I now have excellent pictures of my first born. ~ Suzanne D.


Our experience with B. Whitson Photography for our wedding day was amazing.  Brenna made us feel so comfortable as we prepared for the ceremony.  She was definitely easy going and helped make my entire wedding day stress free.  I absolutely loved our photos as does everyone that I share them with.  Brenna has a true gift for capturing the most beautiful candid photos.  I would recommend her for any event and the best part was how quickly we received the website photos to share with everyone.  Also, she offers the best rates and even provided us with our own CD so that we can produce our own copies.  Truly a joy to be around and I would highly recommend her. ~ Sharon Nokovich


I can’t tell you enough how much fun it was to work with Brenna.  It was a privilege to have her take my engagement photos and bridal portraits.  For the engagement session, Mark and I were completely at ease.  It was a freezing January day, but it worked out perfectly and we got some amazing pictures with fog - they look dreamy.  Brenna had a lot of creative ideas and allowed us to incorporate our own style too.  I couldn’t have asked for a better person to take my bridal portraits.  So many different styles and ideas; it was a great day and everyone loves them, including me!  Even if you don’t like to have your picture taken, Brenna will make it a fun experience for you.  She has a gift and you won’t be disappointed!! ~ Emily P.


We asked Brenna to do some family photos for us.  We ended up having to reschedule a few different times and she was always very kind and accommodating.  We went to a couple of different locations, but in each place she had a very keen eye for lighting and creativity.  My husband is a very quiet and sometimes shy man.  He told me after we were done that Brenna made him feel very comfortable and I could sense that he was comfortable while taking the photos.  This is very evident in the pictures that we have to treasure forever.  He hardly ever smiles in photos and I think he is smiling in each and every one.  We have two little boys and she was very good with them and knew just what to do to entice them to sit still.  Brenna is very creative and likes to capture personalities and emotions in her photos.  I would highly recommend her not only for events, such as weddings, but also to capture a specific season in your life. ~ Brittany and Jake D.


I can't express how happy we've been with our maternity and newborn photos!! Brenna has a way of capturing the moment. I would recommend her to anyone looking for great professional photos!!  ~ Carey and Amanda H.  


Wonderful Pictures!! She does a great job of giving you photos that you will want to use in your home while avoiding the Department store photo feel. Absolutely love all of our family pictures done by BrennaDanelle C.


I highly recommend Brenna. My boyfriend and I scheduled a mini-session recently. Brenna communicated with us well in advance about our session - which went very well. She put us both at ease and was able to capture very natural pictures that never felt "posed". I love my pictures! ~ Jimma W.
