Hello! I am your photographer, Brandi Headrick. I’d love to share a few fun facts about myself to help you get to know me a bit better!
I was born and raised in Ephrata, Washington—an incredibly small town with only three stop lights. I grew up with rolling farmland as my backdrop. In fact, the tallest structures in town were the grain silos! Having grown up in Washington state, I am one of those “strange people” who love snow—especially the smell of it!
My love for photography started when I was a young child. When I was ten years old, I received a Kodak disc camera. My family might tell you that it was the worst gift ever given to me because I relentlessly took pictures of everything and everyone. I have moved on to a more sophisticated camera these days, but I still love capturing everything I see! One of my favorite things to photograph is our dog, Floppy, who we rescued. (The only problem is that she runs away from me every time I pull out a camera—even if it’s the camera on my cell phone!)
Over the years, I have had the opportunity to live in five different states and to travel extensively, both domestically and internationally. So, how did I end up living in East Tennessee? Well, some of you ladies might understand… Because of a handsome man, my husband Keith. I met Keith while living in Nashville, and as they say, the rest is history! Keith is also a photographer and assists me when I need a second photographer or another set of creative eyes.
Each day, I find myself daydreaming about the perfect shot. At the very first glance, photography tells the story of love, laughter and life, and it is my passion to turn those first glances into cherished memories for my clients. I can’t wait to meet you and to see what your story holds!
People who know me will tell you that one of my most endearing characteristics is my writing style. I will end with one of my all-time favorite quotes that describes me best:
“I wish I could be a better writer, but writing is so difficult. I get seduced by visual aesthetics. Because I just like making beautiful pictures, sometimes I wander away from making a clear statement.” —Sally Mann
