What Others Have to Say

We never had to worry about a thing!

We are so thankful we had Brenda behind the camera on our wedding day! Who else would have been willing to travel from Michigan to Alabama during the summer heat and stand out in the pouring rain to capture our moments? Her photos are amazing and we’ve loved remembering the details of our day through her work. She captured so many sweet moment when we did not even realize she was taking pictures. Brenda is extremely reliable throughout the planning process and stays on schedule on wedding day. We never had to worry about a thing!


Thank you for being YOU

Where to begin with Brenda Hoffman. To say she is only a photographer is a gross understatement. She is so much more. After the months and months of work she did to help me prepare for the most perfect engagement one could ever hope to dream up, she captured every moment with the utmost of passion and excellence! She is now a friend, a confidant, a dreamweaver, but most importantly, she is just, Brenda! Compassionate, caring, detail oriented, focused, prompt, organized, efficient, talented are just a few of the adjectives that one could think to describe her and her work. She is an asset to the photography industry, to the City of Grand Haven, to the State of Michigan, and most importantly, to our lives. She is an ambassador of love. Brenda, thank you for being you and being so brilliant in your craft!

I had no Idea

Brenda did such a wonderful job at photographing our wedding. She is really good at what she does. I was so surprised to see so many photos of our wedding that I had no Idea she was taking, that is the part that I thought was so cool she was able to just move around in the back ground in a way that didn’t draw attention to the fact she was taking photos


SO thankful for her

Brenda was everything I wanted and more in a photographer. She was funny, creative, easy to work with, and most of all, TALENTED. I was beyond blown away by the things she did behind the camera and without it; to us, she was much more than a photographer. One day I got the mail and we received a card from Brenda….and when I opened it, it had a gift card to Red Robin. She got us that to give us a break from all the hectic wedding planning on her! It was beyond sweet, and it was such a surprise. Her thoughtfulness and huge heart showed in her photography as well. She captured images I didn’t even see happening…moments I experienced I will now get to see for the rest of my life…and she isn’t afraid to get down in the dirt, wet grass, sand, rocks, or stand up on tall chairs, jump, etc. If it will get a good shot, she will do it. My wedding pictures were perfect…and I am so so so in love with everything she did. 


Brenda is a perfect match for us!

Brenda is a perfect match for us! She took the ideas I had of my engagement and wedding photos & grew them into a story and vision beyond my imagination!! The professionalism she has extends through all she does while still connecting with us both on a personal level. There is no one else I’d want to spend my wedding day working so closely with!

For the rest of your life!

She amazingly captures your very special moments and hands them back to you as memories you can look back on for the rest of your life!


Made the awkwardness melt away!

Brenda made the awkwardness melt away and we LOVE our photos! 



Amazing how much emotion!





There are no words to express how thankful we are for your amazing work.  Seeing all the pictures just brought back all the memories!  It’s amazing how much emotion pictures can have.
