"Brad is awesome! We always have a great experience with him. Our company has used Brad for various types of photography jobs, from video shoots, to residential home shoots, and even personal shots.  Brad is very patient and has great attention to detail. His work is amazing and is always very responsive and gets back to you quickly with his work. 

We definitely recommend using him!" - Lawton Smith team

"Brad is an outstanding photographer who really brought out the best of our family!  Our children are young and can be difficult to photograph.  Brad met us at the location of our choosing (making it very convenient for us) and took the time to scope it out prior to our arrival. He asked what we wanted, but also made suggestions that we wouldn't have thought of.  The whole experience was fun, natural, and surprisingly stress-free.  Our final photos are beautiful and far exceeded our expectations!  I can't believe how many genuine smiles he captured.  I would recommend him to anyone!" - Kaitlin B.

"I had the pleasure and good fortune to work with Brad to create a “story reel” for my keynote speaking business. 

From the first moment that I presented the "story reel” concept to Brad, we had a great flow together. This project was very intense and time intensive and Brad went above and beyond to make sure the project was a success. 

Brad followed my suggestions, bought his own creative expertise, adapted to my needs, and executed the plan with great attention detail. Brad was highly professionally and prompt with all the timelines that we laid out. I highly recommend Brad to anyone who wants high quality, professional video and photography services.” - J. Salzenstein (Keynote Speaker and Executive Coach) 

"Everything was perfect.  The pictures are truly amazing and beautiful!  My family is super happy with them and we enjoyed the unforgettable experience. Brad kept it fun, entertaining, professional, and the time management was great! He also made an everlasting impression on my whole family.  All I can say is WOW and thank you so much for such a fun experience!"  - Jazzy G.

"We had a fantastic experience with Brad! We needed new photos for our orthodontic and pediatric dental practice and Brad delivered. He is incredibly skilled with photography, and has a great eye for detail. If you are needing photography, look no further than Ohana Journals. He is very easy to work with, listens, coordinates with your schedule for efficient use of time in your space, and absolutely is a joy to work with. We are so glad we worked with Brad, and you should be very confident with making the decision to work with him as well."

- Dr. Lutrell & Dr. Dang  (Union Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry)

“Our family recently had the pleasure of working with Brad for our family portraits. Brad was very accommodating with his availability to work around our busy work schedules and the nap schedule for our son. Brad was great at keeping our son, Wyatt, engaged and entertained to capture some really great moments, which can be really difficult with an energetic toddler! Brad even went above and beyond to scout out some scenic locations close to our home in Arvada! If you are looking for a photographer for your family portraits, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone better than Brad!”  - Ashley A.

"Twice now we have worked with Brad on projects for our international sailing company, and we could not be more pleased! The first project was a photo shoot for an event in Tahiti, and the second time was a shoot on one of our sailboats in Mexico. Brad has an incredible eye and a unique perspective that he brings to all of this work. His pictures are truly stunning and powerful. He is a consummate professional, energetic, talented and just a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend Brad and Ohana Journals!"  - Tim G. (Nautilus Sailing)

“Knowing Brad for over a decade we were not surprised by his positive energy and professionalism! He truly exceeded our expectations. Brad is a true gem to work with! We had so much fun having him capture our growing family, with a focus on our three week old son. He was sensitive to our needs and he was very outgoing while making our photo shoot memorable. We would highly recommend Brad and can’t wait to have home take pictures of our family again! Thanks, Brad”  - Mandy, Rusty, Emery, & Ezra T.

"Brad is fantastic to work with and his work is fantastic. We got a piece for our living room and it makes the space so much brighter. Highly recommend him for your photography needs."  - Laura K.

“We have an event every year for our non-profit and are always wanting to capture moments on camera that we can share with our attendees. This year Brad captured those moments and his pictures were incredible and were such an accurate representation of the joy and fun that event holds for our community. On top of that, he was so kind and easy to work with. We would definitely work with him again in the future.”  - South Jeffco Young Life

“I can't recommend Brad at Ohana Journals highly enough! I recently brought on a new employee to my holistic nutrition practice and reached out to Brad to get some headshots of her. He picked up on the vibe of my business and thoughtfully crafted a photoshoot to keep the headshots consistent with the aesthetic of my website. Brad scouted some great locations for the shoot and ended up doing it at my employee's apartment building where she felt the most comfortable and relaxed. The photos turned out beautifully! I was on a deadline to get the shots up on my site before heading on maternity leave, and Brad was able to get the edited photos back to us in less than a week! Not only is Brad a highly skilled photographer, but also he's a pleasure to work with! I will definitely use Ohana Journals again for any photos I need in the future!”   - Stephanie R. (Holistic Nutritionist and Founder of Keenist)

“Brad raised the bar on our golf tournament fundraiser. Not only were we thrilled with the quality of pictures that he took, but we truly felt as though he went above and beyond to make our participants feel welcome. Our experience with Brad was fun, relational, and creative.”  - Young Life Cherry Creek

"Brad has a wonderful attitude towards customer service AND is an amazing photographer. He was instrumental in transforming our living/dining room with his prints. All we did was pick what we liked. He did the rest. Thank you!!"  - Bryan K.

“ I highly recommend Brad for his real estate photography services. His attention to detail and mastery of his trade is second to none. The property that he shot for me included a state-of-the-art gallery of interiors, exteriors, and aerials. The home sold for a record-setting price in a very short time and I am convinced his high-quality work helped me do it. I certainly hope that Brad will venture back to Crested Butte so I can hire him again!” 

- Channing B.  (LIV Sothebys International Realty  Crested Butte, CO)

"Excellent photography and customer service!"  - Jenny S.

“Brad is an amazing photographer and an OrangeTheory Fitness family member! I am so glad to have had him come into our studio and capture our team with headshots and fun action photos. We are able to use these for our social media posts and professional headshots. Everyone should use Brad for their next photoshoot!”  - Hayley D. (Senior Studio Manager)
