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, fashion and wedding photography. In 2009 we founded 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 6th annual show will be held on March 1st at The Luminary, 2701 Cherokee Street, STL MO 63118.

Brea and her husband James also founded The Luminary 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? We do our absolute best to insure that we aren’t making a big carbon footprint. A few years ago we introduced a new line of Eco-Friendly Albums, Eco-Friendly linen cards and started offering digital downloads as an alternative to a burned disc of images. We were really excited to get a hold of some beautiful and sustainable products to offer our clients and we think you are going to love them! Here are a few more things to we do to keep things green:

  • Digital Camera’s
  • Rechargeable batteries
  • We offer digital proofs
  • Digital Downloads of image files
  • Provide Eco Albums
  • Recycle old gear
  • Make our own cleaning supplies
  • Reduce, Reuse and Recycle everything possible

We provide Photography services for the St. Louis, Missouri metro area and we travel. A lot. If you are having a wedding or an event outside of STL, we would love to talk to you! We are available for stateside and international travel.
