Brian Beazely Photography bio picture

Welcome to my Blog!

Hi. My name is Brian. I'm a wedding & lifestyle photographer based in Camas, Washington.  I have always been into documenting peoples lives.  I traveled around the world as a videographer for my family's non profit adoption and orphan care organization. I was lucky enough to get to share very intimate moments with parents meeting their adoptive children for the first time.  

It wasn't until I had a child of my own that I began to be interested in photography.  I think I snapped a photo of my son, Joshua everyday for the first 3 years of his life.  I think I was drawn to photography because still images can convey something very personal that video cannot.  When we look at photos it is up to us to remember that moment and recall what we felt.  When you are viewing video you will see and hear it exactly as it happened.

I love photographing children because they don't know how to be fake.  If I am doing my job correctly I can sit back and capture who they are.  A child's eyes are so expressive and innocent.  It is extremely rewarding to share that with a child's parent.

As you go through my site you will see that I shoot documentary style photography.  I love capturing details of a scene that would have gone unnoticed.  I am humbled each and every time I get to document someones wedding.  I approach each and every wedding with a fresh prospective and really try to showcase who you are.  

I know that choosing the right photographer is a very personal and important decision.  Feel free to look through the site and contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to meeting you.  


Pittock Mansion Wedding : Veronica + Bretley

It’s been a very hectic two months since my last post.  More than a couple of people have already given me a hard time for not delivering on my promise to keep this blog updated.  To them and everyone else please accept my apologies.  I really want to stay connected to all of you and will do a better job.

Now that I got that out of the way I am happy to share some photos from an amazing wedding I shot last month.  This day started with a trip to the Embassy Suites in Downtown Portland to get some preparations from the bride and then onto the Pittock Mansion followed by a reception at Montgomery Park.

Veronica and Bretley are an amazing couple to say the least.  I have know Veronica since we were kids and she is one of the most honest and candid people I have ever known.  She looked absolutely gorgeous in her wedding gown!  I think the two of them make a perfect fit!

They were married a year ago in Vegas and decided it was time to let everyone else celebrate their union.  The Pittock Mansion was a perfect backdrop and close to Veronica’s heart after she spent time volunteering there last year.  I love the photos taken inside… I felt like they stepped straight out of a classic movie from the early 1900’s.  The mansion incorporates Turkish, English, and French designs that looked stunning in the backdrops.  This was the perfect Romantic setting for both of them.

Thanks to Veronica & Bret for giving me the opportunity to capture such an amazing day that I won’t soon forget.

Enjoy the photos & slideshow!


My Favorite Photo of 2010

Hello everyone…Hope you all have had a great 26 days of 2011. My biggest new years resolution was to start blogging. I have made this resolution every year since 2006 without any follow through. I am proud to announce that 2011 will be different! I am finally writing my first blog post and am happy to report that I am going to update this blog at least twice a week.

For my first blog post I wanted to share a photo of one of the sweetest most adorable little girls. Her name is Marli and her smile just melts your heart. I have the privilege of photographing her many time throughout the year and it just so happens that one of her photos was also my favorite photo of 2010.

The photo was captured while her Dad was trying to get her to smile. All he had to do was hold her hand and use his high pitch voice to make her laugh. She responded by giving him one of the sweetest smiles I have ever seen from a child to a parent. It’s a look only a child could give, a smile that speaks so much louder than any words she could say to him. I know he is probably her hero, but after seeing that way she looked at him it became all that much clearer.

Treasure your children at this age. They grow up in the blink of an eye and it’s over. Thankfully we have photos like these to remind us of the amazing love between a little girl and her Daddy!
