I am so pleased that you are visiting my page. Photography has been a part of my life since childhood and I have grown to absolutely love it. I can't believe it has been a whole decade since I took the leap into working professionally. I hope you'll check out my work while you are here. It would be my pleasure to be your photographer!
My wife Rose supports my photography habit and holds down the fort while I’m out. God has entrusted us with three little lives who are now 9, 7, and 4. They could be described as compassionate, spunky, and entertaining. We enjoy taking walks, drive-in movies, going to parks, pizza, and most of all just hanging out with friends and family.
Thirteen years ago we rescued our first baby, a girl we named Sputnik. We didn’t plan on getting her a brother but who could resist puppy eyes longingly looking out through the cage at the shelter. We named him Comet and the adventures began. Sadly, we had to say goodbye to our girl when she lost a battle with cancer just after her 11th birthday. Comet still has spring in his step and makes sure we’re aware of anyone at the door.
Am I crazy to get up at sunrise to hit the chains? My wife sure thinks so. I call it passion. My uncle introduced me to the sport years ago before it was popular. As an adult I re-discovered disc golf and just can’t get enough. I prefer Discraft and my favorite Rochester area course is Parma. We could arrange to go play after your photo shoot.
I'm a family guy who thinks it's a precious thing to preserve memories of loved ones. I often look back at the photos of my quickly growing children with fond thoughts of days gone by. This is why I take great care to capture the emotions and personalities of the moment. I want to create treasures so that you'll smile at your yesterdays. When all is done, you’ll be presented with your edited images on a USB drive and be given the chance to choose a package of prints totaling a $50 value.
Taking architectural shots is fun for me. I enjoy the technical challenges of lighting an interior space and I look for compositions that capture the flow of a floor plan. My full frame camera and wide angle lenses are just right for even the smallest rooms. I use a quad copter for aerial images of property which can really show off its features. Your house or business will be seen at its best in my photos. When all is done, you'll have an easy access online gallery for downloading your beautiful photos. Real estate agents, please ask me about frequency discounts!
On your wedding day, you are my only commitment because I don't want you to stress about time restrictions. I'll learn about your vision and discuss all details in advance, so when your special day arrives, you'll be able to cast your photography cares away and just enjoy all that you've worked so hard to plan. I'll blend seamlessly into the action and you'll feel comfortable with me behind the camera. When all is done, you'll be given your edited images according to the details of your package.
"Brandon and Rose were very attentive, yet unobtrusive photographers. They both took wonderful photographs that truly captured the emotion of the day. We appreciated how Brandon was available to meet before our wedding to discuss the details of the day. He was very amendable to any requests that we had and accommodated our needs on our special day. Brandon and Rose were friendly and professional - their pictures were beautiful!"
"We hired Brandon as our photographer for our wedding and couldn't be happier with our decision. He is extremely professional, polite and non-intrusive. He showed up right on time ready to work and definitely went above and beyond the call of duty! He even helped us move furniture around to make our dressing room more comfortable and provide better lighting for the photos! He is very courteous and was able to blend into the crowd making it very easy to get candid shots and help us relax in front of the camera (and I HATE getting my picture taken). We would highly recommend him for any event!"
"My husband and I just got married last June and we used Nika Ink Photography for both engagement and wedding photos! The photos are beautiful and working with Brandon and Rose was a great experience, very pleasant and comfortable. We look forward to future family photos being taken by this awesome team!"
"Just wanted to thank you so much for the photos of our wedding. We just finished looking at them and we are absolutely thrilled with them. We laughed and remembered many of the moments from that day. Can't thank you enough for spending the day with us. You are truly talented and we hope that you will have much success in your future. Thank you again."
"We got the wedding pictures in the mail today, and they are beautiful! You guys captured the day perfectly :) I told Rick many times that I really felt like I missed out on so many details and moments of the day because we were so busy, and looking through all the pictures, I felt like I got to see everything, every single detail perfectly. You did an absolutely amazing, wonderful job, and I can't thank you enough!!!!!"
"They have a way of capturing the best moments without being intrusive; what a pleasant surprise it was to see moments from our day that we didn't even know had been captured. Also having been in many other weddings and seen other photographers, Nika Ink was by far the most patient and attentive when it came to photo requests of the bride and groom. I cannot recommend them enough."
"Brandon was very flexible with us. He spent the whole day taking pictures and half the time you didn't even know he was there. I'm very pleased and happy about the services he provided."
