LOVE NOTES

I hired Bree McCool to work with my company PlyoJam for an entire year.  Together we worked to plan, map out and create beautiful content that has been invaluable to my brand, website, social media and any press that my company has received.  Working with Bree is truly a joy.  Bree not only has incredible talent and produces gorgeous work, but she has such an even keeled and nurturing nature that keeps everyone calm and comfortable during the process.  Bree has incredible range and can shoot anything from stunning portraits to difficult to capture action shots.  Every single shoot we did with Bree resulted in photos that made my heart sing.  I cannot recommend Bree highly enough.  She is punctual, professional and her turn around is prompt.  Any business would be so lucky to work with Bree McCool photo!

Talented, Creative, Professional, and a fun collaborative partner is how I would describe working with Bree McCool. I always look forward to our photoshoots. 

It’s rare to meet a creative that has an outstanding work ethic.  Bree is not only fun to work with but the experience is extremely creative. She creates mood boards of the photoshoot that not only inspire herself, but the client.  She brings location ideas, sits in on wardrobe consults, and is also tuned in with hair/make up. She takes the extra steps to learn your business. If you bring your own ideas, she will take them to a creative level that you may not have expected. Bree’s proof process is very easy, and she always provides work timely. I am more than happy of how Bree gets my brand, and there is a consistency of the work that I feel proud to show on my website, and social media channels.

Bree was a delight to work with. She was professional, patient and had many great suggestions to make our photo session go smoothly. I couldn't be more pleased with the amazing photographs she took. Her keen eye for color and design coupled with her extraordinary creativity resulted in truly breathtaking photographs. I highly recommend her.

Bree's attention to detail is what sets her apart. Keeping the client in mind while confidently shooting is truly a work of art!  Each shoot continued to evolve as my brand evolves. I'm in love with my brand because the work Bree continues to deliver. Sometimes I find myself jumping on my laptop just to admire the images. I dunno what you did Bree, but this last shoot you really outdid yourself! Somehow even I look better!!! 🙌 Preparation handled with perfection. I appreciate how detailed Bree is from having a host of props to working with minimal props. I appreciate how Bree always checks back with the client - sometimes as these projects continue to grow and include more people, more perspectives are provided. I appreciate how Bree listens to all perspectives and always takes it back to the client to ensure she's on the same page with the client.  Bree is truly a professional! I appreciate how functional this shoot was. Lots of community images, product images (wine/coffee) and I absolutely love the space images! Because Bree came prepared with the proper lighting, she was able to capture the full beauty of the room and the open space. Like a professional, Bree is always on time to the shoots and EARLY with image delivery!!! It's like receiving a gift!! I'm excited to continue to work with Bree and explore new opportunity as well.

Photos are key when telling a visual brand story especially when capturing an event. I never realized that more until I received my photos from Bree McCool, photographer extraordinaire.  Her photos not only capture the key elements of my brand and the event I hosting but she also captured the story of the event, the preparations, the arrival, the mingling, the joy, the ah-ha moments, the love and the closure. Photo after photo could stand alone and make you feel like, I want to be there. Her professionalism, her delivery and her photographer's eye is why I keep hiring her over and over. She is a dream to work with and she always captures the honest beauty in certain moments that I later look back on and just smile.

I love working with Bree on so many levels - artistically, professionally, and personally. I was first drawn to her warm personality and loved the way she uses light in her work. On shoot days, I knew I could relax because she's reliable, courteous, and has a natural ability to put her subjects at ease in front of the camera. She does a great job balancing my vision with her expertise, so I get to step back and just enjoy watching her work!

Getting to know Bree personally, the first thing I noticed was how passionate she is about the art of photography. As an artist myself, the details are everything to me and I knew she felt the same. I needed photos that would look just as good framed on a gallery wall as they do on my Instagram feed and that’s exactly what we were able to achieve.

Bree made sure everything was aligned with my vision from start to finish, from finalizing technical specs with my printer to carefully setting up each shot and editing with my specific goals in mind. 

By asking thoughtful questions and taking the time to hear my ideas and the results I was hoping for, she was able to translate them into beautiful photographs.

Bree was wonderful to work with and the photos turned out perfect! We had two skeptical grandparents, a cranky toddler, baby girl and dog to wrangle for a beach shoot and she made it a great experience for everyone with an even better result!

Erica + Family

Bree is an amazing photographer with the superpowers to make you feel so comfortable during a photo shoot. I was anxious before our shoot day but as soon as I started working with Bree all my worries flew out the window. She works with so much grace and is extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend working with Bree, you won’t be disappointed!

Vanessa

Bree shot our rehearsal dinner and welcome drinks and she was fantastic! She is so great at capturing candid moments, using natural light, but she’s also very diligent in getting posed photos of all the VIP people. I would definitely strongly recommend Bree for any event.

Mel + Family

I loved worked with Bree during a recent Mini Portrait Session. Just 20-minutes together produced several high-quality images perfect for marketing a new service in my business. Can't work with her again in the future!!

Bree is one of the best photographers I have ever worked with. She was willing to travel for our engagements pictures as well as our wedding which were in 2 different parts of the state. She is not afraid to get dirty as for our engagement pictures included horses, cattle, and a livestock auction yard. Our wedding was no different being on a secluded cattle ranch in southern California with no cell phone reception. She was down for all ideas we had and worked with us prior to both events to make sure we had the shots lined up we wanted. She got us our photos back in the timeline promised and our photo book was a tear jerker. She brought an assistant for the wedding and his work was right on par with hers. It made the day so special. She captured everything we wanted and so much more. I would highly recommend Bree McCool Photography for all your photo needs. We will definitely be using her in the future.

Lindsey + Benett Mebane

I was an actress for 10 years and a musician for 7, so I have had MANY photoshoots. I usually hated the results from all of them! 

Today, I am in the business world and I was in need of a professional head shot. I kept procrastinating but was determined to push myself to do something I was uncomfortable with and didn't think I was very "good" at. 

Much to my surprise, working with Bree was different, in the very best way! Her direction was amazing, she made me feel comfortable and the end results were amazing. This is HANDS DOWN the happiest I have ever been with photos of myself!!

Bree is absolutely lovely to work with - her passion for photography is so inspiring and truly shows in her work! I did an indoor film shoot with her, and just booked with her again for a outdoor lifestyle shoot for my team. Looking forward to being in front of the camera again for the first time ever!

Jackie Freed

Bree was amazing! Kind and easy to work with . At first, my daughter looked nervous, but eventually she was getting excited!

Miyuki Shimizu

Bree is such a pleasure to work with and so talented! I'm used to staying behind the scenes when shooting content for my clients, so when it came to updating my portfolio I had no photos of myself. Bree was able to capture beautiful photos in a very short time frame at an event. She made me feel comfortable, directed me in posing- looking not so posed, and maneuvered through the event without people noticing. Thank you, Bree, for saving the day and providing incredible photos!

My husband and I were so excited to do a maternity shoot with Bree. Bree went above and beyond for us. She scouted several locations prior to the shoot and helped us choose the best one based on the scenery we were looking for. We had so much fun shooting with her and we were blown away when we saw the photos. She really has a magic touch and was truly able to capture our spirit. The diversity and taste of the various backdrops and poses gave us a wide range of shots to choose from. We strongly recommend Bree. We cannot wait to have her photograph our family once our little one arrives!

Ember + Scott

I call Bree the Photography Ninja because she was practically invisible while shooting my event. Not only did she truly capture the spirit of the event but she captured the spirit of all the people there too. Her work is flawless and her turn around time was very fast. Highly Recommend Bree~!!!

Bree was super professional and fun to work with. She was extremely prepared and the photo shoot moved very smoothly. We will definitely be booking her again for our next shoot!

Bree was amazing! So easy going and chill! She made us feel so comfortable during the shoot and she was super patient with my threenager! Best of all...she captured some beautiful moments in LA that we will cherish forever! 

Euni, Keith and Lindon

Bree was amazing! Not only was she so knowledgeable and helpful about the area, but she wasn’t so sweet and worked at getting every picture perfect. I appreciated her input and how comfortable she made us feel. She was such a pleasure to work with! 

Tiffany

I had incredible photoshoot with Bree, she was too nice and too welcoming to photoshoot whatever I would like to in a very elegant and beautiful way. I totally recommend her for so many reasons. 

Tarek

Bree was absolutely amazing! It was fun engaging her in the proposal but even more fun shooting with her after! She had great knowledge of the area we were at and had plenty of great ideas for photos. The images turned out great! 

Brian + Wenye

Bree is an absolute pleasure to hang out with, especially when she's in her happy place taking photos of the people and places she loves. Her passion for creating beautiful images that will capture a memory, day, or feeling is truly evident in everything she does, starting with how comfortable she makes you feel to how much fun she encourages you to have with the shoot. Would highly recommend Bree for portraits, weddings, engagement shoots, and beyond!!

This year Bree photographed my engagement shoot and my wedding. She did such an amazing job! You can tell she has a passion for her work. Her eye for lighting and being able to capture your most candid moments are unmatched. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to photograph a special day or event.

Rachel & Eli McGee

I can't not say enough wonderful things about working with Bree, she truly is fantastic! I recently had maternity and family photos done and it was such a vulnerable experience and so moving for me as this is our 4th and last baby. She made me feel so calm and comfortable, even when i needed to take breaks and wasn't as prepared as I should have been with everything. She is fun and amazing with my kids and even had drinks and snacks out for us adults and for my kids. The pictures she took came out beautiful, I can't believe I had waited this long to have maternity photos done for my kids. Bree, you rock!

The Cavette Family

We use Bree to photograph construction projects for our company, Shenon Construction. The way she captures properties is pretty incredible. It is an amazing keepsake for our customers. For us, the images serve as an advertising tool, and the potential clients who see them are truly impressed. Bree is detail oriented, from being particular with choosing the right time of day to obtain the best lighting to making sure the magic of someone's home transformation is truly captured.
We highly recommend her for any kind of building or construction photography, and if you are really trying to impress your clients.

Shenon Construction

As someone who has always been camera-shy, Bree is a dream come true to work with. Her artistic talent speaks for itself, but more importantly, she knows how to guide people to bring out their best. I had so much fun during our photo sesh that I forgot to be my usual awkward-deer-in-the-headlights self. She gave good direction, tamed my flyaway hairs, and kept me laughing the whole time.

We had an amazing Holiday session with Bree at the beach! She's extremely professional, has an amazing eye and captures the best moments. We can't stop looking at our pictures! They went up on our wall and holiday cards immediately! Will certainly use her services again and again. Thank you, Bree for capturing an amazing and happy memory for us.

Wendy & Ryan 

Bree is incredibly talented in her craft. She continues to amaze me with her keen eye! I've been working with her this past year having Bree take pictures of me for my styling website that's soon to launch. I've loved our time together and highly suggest her to anyone looking for a photographer. She just gets it! Thanks Bree!!

Bree took pics of my daughter, my mother and I and I couldn't be MORE PLEASED!!! She is an incredible artist with a fantastic eye. I told her she needs to consider becoming a cinematographer because she clearly knows how to capture amazing moments. Very high quality work and super professional. As you can tell I am obsessed with Bree McCool Photography and I will be having her take pictures of my daughter every year!!! xoxoxo

Nzinga & Drea

We love the family/newborn photos that Bree took for us! She is such a sweet person and a very professional, talented photographer. We had the best experience working with her!

Laura & Dominic

My wife won a free session on facebook, so "we" decided to use it for a newborn session. I was a little skeptical, but my wife wanted all the pictures. It was an hour session and unfortunately, our baby wasn't very cooperative with the time line. He cried the entire time.
Bree was amazing. She spent 75% of the session just trying to calm him. She would sooth him until the very last second and pull the pacifier to take the picture. It was a drawn out process thanks to our very fussy baby, but Bree was patient throughout the shoot.
Our one our session ended up taking three. Bree didn't charge us a dime. I couldn't believe the amount of work she put in. She made the entire experience fun and easy. It was also a nice little break having her calm our baby instead of us (I think I may have taken a nap on her couch).
I was a little nervous because our son had some baby acne. It seemed like a waste to take pictures while he had blemishes. When we got the pictures, nothing. I couldn't see anything. I'm pretty sure Bree performed magic during and after the set to make the pictures come out like they did. They're beautiful and we couldn't be happier.
Bree is amazing. Pretty sure she'll be our family photographer as long as we can book her.

The Wilson Family

Bree was so great to work with. She was so patient with our newborn and the beautiful pictures she took reflect the calm atmosphere she creates. We highly recommend her!

The Nicholson Family

Where do I start with Bree & her photography? Be warned- I may not be able to stop! Talented, patient, creative, patient, artistic, patient, professional...did I mention patient? She captured our newborn son in such an unforgettable way, providing us with memories that bring happy tears to my eyes every time I look at them! It takes a special person to work with kids, especially babies (I meant it when I said patient!), and Bree is that person. We trusted her not only with our son but with the task of capturing the true spirit of our baby and she did that and so much more. My heart smiles at every picture and the memory of the shoot where funny little happenings of baby poop, pee, laughing & crying were a plenty (again, PATIENT!)! Our families are equally as in love with the photos...especially the grandmas. Bree, Jason & I are so thankful that we were able to experience your talent and now have those itty bitty memories forever as Benji grows & changes so quickly. Your passion and energy radiated through every click of the camera and now I cannot wait for his 1st birthday & smash cake! We'd give more than 5 stars if we could! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! 

Love, Mandy & Jason Dodson (& Benji!)


Bree is awesome! I love shooting with her! We had some last minute changes that had to happen due to location and nothing was compromised! I love how she can captured my vibe and naturalness, but then also she had these stunning compositions with structure and lines. I would love to shoot with her anytime and again. We've shot in studio and outdoor and she is talented at both!

Heidi Heaslet

Working with Bree is always positive. She is so nice, energetic, and passionate about what she does that it's contagious. Her thoughtfulness and sweet nature comes through in all client interactions as well as her creative mind and spirit. I recommend Bree to anyone looking into engagement photos, wedding photos/video, maternity photos, or any life event. Bree will recognize the unique nature of your life event and will feel honored to celebrate with you.

The Papadakis Family

I decided it was time that I grow up and get some professional headshots to replace the unsightly, cropped photos I was previously using. Bree came through and I couldn't be happier! She was a pleasure to work with and came prepared with ideas and inspiration to get a great shot. Now I can grow my online presence with the confidence a fantastic

Bree McCool is one AMAZING photographer. Bree was able to capture stunning pictures at my daughters' Baptism celebration. Every single image captured spoke more than a thousand words. My husband and I were very pleased with her work. Bree carried a positive attitude and always with a smile. This young photographer is just brilliant, to say the least, she was punctual, had a great direction, and was extremely coordinated. She paid great attention to her surroundings... all the details before, during and after the baptism. Her experience in photography definitely shined making all of us feel beautiful, and most important comfortable. Bree was referred to us by one of our friends and we could not be happier. We LOVE every single image captured!

The Cisneros Family

Bree McCool's photography is dangerously charming. She collaborates with you and uses her creative initiative to produce unique photography. I have used Bree for all my yoga photos and each experience has been productive yet enthusiastic. I will continue to used Bree's services and recommend her to everyone I know. 

Abi Stirling

We asked Bree to take our son's 6 month pictures. She did our engagement pictures and our son's newborn pictures. She continues to amaze me and my family with her creativity, ideas, and beautiful photos. We will never use another photographer! She is truly talented and produces amazing, unforgettable photos. I don't think you will find a more creative, fun, and driven person to capture the moments you don't want to forget!!!

The Mohler Family

Bree has been our photographer since our littles ones were in mommy's belly. She has done amazing work for us and really captures our family's true spirit. She has done an incredible job including our non human son "tank" in our maternity session, newborn shoot and holiday sessions. I cannot rave enough about her talent and unbelievable patience to work with 2 toddlers and a dog. Our annual smash cakes shoots are always a blast and she brings the best ideas. Any idea you can come up with, Bree can transform that and take it to a whole new level of beautiful!! We were so blessed that she took some of the most beautiful candid moments between mom, dad, grandparents, cousins, aunts, and uncles meeting Baby! That birth photography session captured some of my most treasured memories. Thank you Bree for all of our wonderful memories captured, forever grateful!

The McCool Family

Outstanding! Love the way you worked with my son to ease him in to taking great photographs. You have such a way of creating a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Brilliant and unique senior portraits! Excellent variety of shots and gorgeous settings. Thanks for making these moments so special for us and save us a date for Holiday sessions!! You are our photographer extraordinaire.

Felishia Perry

Bree is an excellent photographer, but an even better person. My wife and I hired Bree to be our photographer for our wedding back in May of 2016. When all is set and done all we get to keep is memories of our special day. Bree, thank you for giving us so many amazing shots of memories we will share and cherish for years to come. We are so glad you captured our wedding, and we highly recommend her to any future couple in search of an awesome professional. Im positive that we have found our family photographer for years to come.

The Soriano Family

Bree captured our engagement pictures and we absolutely love them!!! Her unique creativity and plan fit our photo shoot perfectly. She came with a ton of ideas and it was so fun to work with her! It was never awkward or uncomfortable for my husband or I and we never worried about the final product. She is flexible with ideas and locations, she went with us to three different sites. She is easy to plan with and very dependable. We received the pictures very quickly after she took them and had a book made of all of them because we love them all! We would highly recommend her to anyone that needs any kind of pictures taken. She's a genius with a camera!

The Mohler Family

Bree is an amazing photographer! Her creativity just shine through as she captured all the beautiful moments with my girls. Her know-how-to experience in photographing children was very much appreciated as sometimes they can get restless. I will gladly work with her again and will recommend her to anyone in need of a photographer.

The Raz Family

Bree has an amazing ability to capture the moment every parent wants to make memorable. But besides being an incredible photographer, she knows her way with babies. Her peaceful presence made my baby and everyone else so comfortable that the whole shoot was very calm. Every picture was so special, we had trouble choosing only a few! Bree will be taking many more pictures of our family in the future, and I would highly recommend her to anyone...
