We think that the best photographers love the world around them. Away from shoots, they visit galleries, they grow gardens, they travel and they know their city well. We love photography, but we are also artists and designers, musicians and community activists. Our passions spill over into everything we do. We love getting to know our clients enough to tell a compelling story.
Brea Photography was founded in 2007 primarily working in journalism and wedding photography. In 2009 We began Off White Indie Wedding Show, a non-traditional wedding show focused on Eco-Friendly, out-of-the-box approaches to wedding planning. Off White is still going strong and our 5th annual show will be held on April 20th, 2014 at the Contemporary Art Museum in St. Louis.
Brea and her husband James also founded The Luminary Center for the Arts in 2007. The Luminary is a 501c3 non-profit organization serving artists from all over the world through exhibitions and our international art residency program. We host a variety of programming include concerts, exhibitions, panel discussions and more. Find out more about The Luminary here.

A little something that we want you to know……We are Green!
So how can you be a green photographer? That’s kind of a tough one. We do our absolute best to insure that we aren’t making a big carbon footprint. One thing we are doing this year is introducing Eco-Friendly Albums. Some of the Album providers include White Glove, Couture Earth Albums and Wild Magnolia Albums. We were really excited to get a hold of some beautiful and sustainable albums to offer our clients! Here are a few more things to we do to keep things green:
- Digital Camera’s
- Rechargeable batteries
- We offer digital proofs rather than printed proofs
- Electronic delivery of images through e-mail, FTP and our website
- Provide Eco Albums
- Recycle old gear
- Reduce, Reuse and Recycle everything possible
