Behind the lens: meet Brittany

 

Hello! I'm Brittany Bays. Thank you for stopping by. I am honored to have you view my work. I am a coffee drinking, yellow bicycle riding, red lipstick wearing helpless romantic. My career in the arts started in a more traditional setting, studying painting and drawing at the University of Cincinnati. I then went on to study graphic design, obtaining my BA from Northern Kentucky University. I do love both of these mediums, but my true passion is most definitely photography. I hold photographs of my family, special places, and the love of my life, Brad, so dear to my heart. I take this passion into every portrait and wedding I photograph. 

When I attend a wedding, I want the images to have life and meaning.

My approach is to photograph your day to capture the whole story and romance of it. My style is a mix of fine art photojournalism and editorial styled posing. I have had experience being on both sides of the camera, and I use my modeling background a lot when I am posing other subjects. I am actually represented by Heyman Talent as a model and actress! This definitely comes in handy when I am working with my clients. I thrive on making people shine and feel confident in front of my camera.

Most importantly, I am a Christian, and I try my hardest to honor God with the creativity He has given me. I am so blessed to be doing what I love, and I thank God regularly for allowing me to use my gifts and talents in my career. It is only by His grace that I have made it to where I am today.

Things I love:  

Strong coffee, all things vintage, riding my bicycle, neutral colors, red lipstick, cities, travel, dresses, thrift stores, painting, fresh flowers, picnics, pinot grigio, Audrey Hepburn, hand written letters, and small businesses.
