"Brandon is the best. I wanted to find someone who could really capture candid moments and interesting perspectives, not just posed portraits. Brandon delivered and the photos came out better than I could have ever expected. We ended up having to move the wedding a day earlier due to a hurricane, and Brandon didn't even hesitate when we called him. "Of course, I wouldn't miss it," was his reply and I was SO happy because his work is so special and I was going to be heartbroken if he couldn't shoot our special day. He showed up early and was such a joy to have with us all day. He was flexible with all of the last minute changes and just rolled with the punches. He even jumped in to help with a few last minute tasks. All of my guests kept remarking on how he was able to be all over the party and we never felt like he missed a single moment. We will cherish these photos for the rest of our lives. Brandon was a complete professional - always responded to emails and sent us our photos earlier than I expected. Brandon's work is top notch, with a personality to match. By far, one of the best decisions I made was hiring him!"

“Brandon was so amazing and I can’t imagine a better person to photograph our wedding. When we first started looking at vendors, we reached out to one we found on a different website. The photographer very politely replied back that he didn’t photograph LGBTQ weddings. From that point on, I knew my wife and I needed to try and only look at LGBGQ “friendly” websites to find our photographer. Although this was only two years ago, it was before websites had little buttons next to vendors that specified whether they supported LGBTQ weddings or not. We stumbled on a website, found Brandon, and the rest is history. Brandon impacted our lives in a way we can’t describe. His energy never stops, his smile is contagious, and he has a heart of gold. He was definitely one of our favorite parts of our wedding. He truly is a beautiful person and our pictures are so gorgeous. Thank you again for everything Brandon and we love you!!!!”

"Let me cut right to the chase. Of the 10+ vendors that were hired for our destination wedding in New Orleans, Xistence Photography was our number one favorite vendor. From our first meeting in a coffee shop right up to this very day, our dealings with Brandon have been superprofessional, timely and friendly. Brandon has a great personality, the moment we met with him there was a complete sense of ease. And as one other reviewers mentioned, you can practically hear him smile over the phone. On top of his amazing personality, he is wonderfully skilled at photography and a great business owner. He showed up early for the wedding, and was there right until we wrapped up the reception. He does not get in anybody's way, you can barely tell he is around taking pictures! Even the guests mentioned he was like a ninja just appeared and disappeared out of nowhere to snap beautifully candid shots, and for formal photos he was always coaching us on how to get the great shots. And the pictures ... ohhhh the pictures. OUT OF THIS WORLD. He could easily charge more for the quality of his pictures and we received so many! Ummm, and did I mention that he sent the final photos less than a month after the wedding! We were floored at the speed of his work. I would choose Brandon over and over again for his services. The hubby and I joke around that we are trying to create other special occasions just as an excuse to use Brandon's services again. More than a photographer, we now consider Brandon a friend. Hiring Xistence Photography for our wedding is one of the best choices we made. Great value for money and the wonderful personal care that we all want in a photographer. Do not hesitate to hire Brandon!"

"We traveled 11 hours from Charleston, SC to New Orleans, LA to have our wedding at The Champagne Palace. Xistence Photography helped us take on our wedding with ease. 5 STARS is simply not enough when it comes to Brandon's services. I contacted over 20 photographers in three days, with less than 2 months away from my April 8 wedding. When I had my initial consultation with Brandon, I knew by the time I got off the phone with him that he would be the perfect photographer for our wedding. His portfolio was impressive, his personality was bright, and I could hear him smile through the phone at all times. I knew that I would be able to trust him to treat my bride and family with the upmost respect, and he did! On our wedding day, he and his team arrived early and stayed until the bride and I were sent off. After the wedding, he was able to deliver our photos to us way before the proposed deadline. Keep in mind that this is the prime time for wedding season. As expected, the photos came out without a flaw, and he exceeded the amount of edited photos we expected to have delivered. Do yourself and your family a favor and let Brandon take care of all of your wedding photography needs."

"I would give Brandon more than 5 stars if I could! My husband and I LOVED working with him. Not only was he super organized, communicative, and professional, he was really nice and fun as well! We said we only wanted documentary style candids, and he made sure he got pictures of everyone in action, but still found the perfect time to pull us aside for some quick posed photos when he saw a good opportunity--and we're so glad he did! He has a great artistic eye, and we still have no idea how he was able to be in so many places at once! He got pictures of our very short ceremony from above, behind, both sides, etc...I can not recommend him enough. If you're still looking for a wedding photographer, just stop and hire Brandon. The best!"

"We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer than Brandon. He made the whole photography process stress free and seamless. He was prompt with answers, worked with us to plan a shot list, and offered great advice and suggestions to make sure every moment was captured in the best style possible. His style really captures the essence of New Orleans, which was very important to us. He arrived early, with a great presence that makes you feel like you’ve been friends for years, and was professional throughout the day. He was there, but not there…always present capturing the day yet never interfering or distracting from the event. He was a photography ninja."
