“I was able to meet B (Brandi Mussack) through my cousin Jene’ a few years ago. All I know is that the moment I met her I instantly loved her. She was beautiful, caring, hilarious… pretty much everything you would ever want in a friend. I was able to follow her through Facebook and admire her work. The moment Jim and I were engaged, and I literally mean the moment after he asked me and we started thinking about plans the first thing that we said was, “We want B as our photographer.” Besides saying, “yes!” to my now husband… choosing B as the person to document the most special day we will ever have was the best wedding decision I made.

Any time future brides ask me for advice I tell them this: “You only take a few things with you from your wedding. Make sure you marry a good man and make sure you hire an amazing photographer.” It honestly kills me to hear that brides are unhappy with their pictures. I feel so blessed to have the most beautiful images from our wedding that we will be able to look at and have for a lifetime and more. B became part of our family that week. In fact, my little sister who is 7 years old, cried when she left. She cares so much about what she does, every little detail. As a bride, the day can slip away so fast. B was there to remind me to look around, soak in everything around me, “Just B” in the moment with my new husband. Our pictures are incredible… so incredible that people stop me in the grocery store or at meetings to tell me how amazing our pictures are. B is pretty much a celebrity in our town (and beyond).

I could go on and on about all the reasons I love B and La Brisa Photography— But I will end with this: Jim and I would have had a special day no matter what… but because of B and La Brisa Photography… our day was beyond any of our wildest and most desired dreams. Jim and I want to thank B from the bottom of our hearts for her talents and care. We love you.

God is love,
Ashley Howard”
