The absolute BEST team of photographers you could pick for your outdoor wedding. Brenda and Marc are incredibly patient, creative and talented. They went above and beyond to help us make our vision for our wedding photos a reality. We had a small wedding in Zion National Park, a place my husband and I had never been, and when we had our meeting with the Bergreens over Skype, they were totally ok with the fact that we were indecisive and had no idea where to do the ceremony. Since we could only do so much researching online of spots in the park to hold the ceremony and to take pictures, Brenda and Marc were super helpful, answering questions we had of what those spots were actually like and we narrowed it down to 2-3 different options of locations.

Once the day of the ceremony arrived they were incredibly flexible with us as we had to push back the start time of the ceremony a bit last minute. We were also surprised to hear of the time they invested the day prior to the ceremony to check out the locations we chose to hold everything previously! They dedicated a whole day of theirs just to make sure ours would be absolutely perfect! I’m not sure if that’s routine with all their weddings, but I was so impressed and comforted to know that. They suggested changing the site of the ‘after ceremony’ photos, but assured us that if we were absolutely set on the choice we made, we could do still do that. We trusted their suggestion and went to the new site for photos and are so glad we did, Brenda and Marc definitely know what they’re doing because our photos are stunning!

So many people have told us after looking at our album that they are the best wedding photos they’ve ever seen, so different and unique! Brenda and Marc, are undoubtedly the very best! We love them!!!”

“We eloped and got our pictures done in Rocky Mountain National Park and they are amazing! We spent the whole time laughing and joking with the Bergreens and we got some truly amazing shots. Our friends and family love all the pictures and can’t stop looking at them. Highly recommend to anyone!”

“Both my wife and I had been following the Bergreens for quite some time, and even before selecting a date for the wedding, we already knew they were the perfect fit. We were impressed from day one of communication, all starting with the Facetime session, the gift in the mail, and speedy emails back and forth during the planning process. They are both extremely professional, but also easy-going at the same time. Marc and Brenda provided direction well and were also open and accepting of our thoughts and wishes, including our smoke bomb and entire guest list group photos. The one thing we loved the most at the reception was the sneak peak photo slide show, which was a pleasant surprise. Also, they held true to their two-week turn around time for all photos. We couldn’t have asked for a more kick ass photography duo than Marc and Brenda!”

“We feel lucky to have had Marc and Brenda shoot our wedding. As it turned out, we asked a lot of our wedding photographers, and they (more than) exceeded our expectations. We had a very small ceremony in a remote location, so having the right photographer(s) was critical. We needed photographers who would hike overland with us to a wedding site on a stream (like, literally on an island in a stream!), but who could also hang out with our families for a few days in a cabin. Not only are the images that they created beautiful, but our families loved hanging out with Marc and Brenda (as did we!). They are professional, and made the entire process stress free (which, of course, is quite welcome when it comes to wedding planning!). They sent us our photos while we were still on our honeymoon, and sent subsequent prints and albums shortly thereafter. They captured the spirit of the wedding perfectly, and it’s so wonderful to be able to show these to family and friends who were not at the ceremony – they instantly understand why the ceremony was so small, and I think they still get a sense of what it was like to be there. So – thank you, thank you to Marc and Brenda for the images of a lifetime! Highly recommended!”

“Everyone feels like their wedding was the most beautiful day ever (and we are no exception!), but Bergreen Photography captured the beauty and energy of the day so impeccably, it comes to life when we look at the pictures. In preparation for the wedding weekend, they helped us think through what kinds of pictures we wanted and how to work them into the wedding day plan. On the day of, they were organized and they naturally work so easily with people that we got through the family portrait session super efficiently – it was amazing – and then could get back to the cocktail hour! They used the outdoor space creatively to make really gorgeous compositions for our portraits right after the wedding ceremony, and then again just before sunset to catch the perfect light. Their dual-camera partner approach is very effective so you get different kinds of shots and angles of the same event. Their outdoor photography is what drew us to Bergreen Photography originally, but I would also say that their indoor pictures of us getting ready are really fantastic as well, and the pictures from the dance party are priceless. On timing, they were super quick to get us back a bunch of highlights to share immediately after the wedding, and then we had the full set of photos very soon thereafter. Marc and Brenda are professional, easy to work with, such sweet and kind-hearted people, and they do a great job!”

“…If you enjoy the outdoors, it’s a no-brainer to hire Marc and Brenda as your photographers...

“I can say with 100% sincerity, no business I’ve reviewed on Yelp in Colorado deserves a five-star review more than Bergreen Photography. I’d give them a 10 if I could. Not only are they very talented photographers, they’re great people. If you were to hire them for your special occasion, you can expect two very talented, newfound friends who: Will take your personal style preferences and incorporate them into the shots. -Can make you look better than you do in real life 😉 -Capture your unique personality. -Wildly love the outdoors. -Make you feel comfortable even if you’re nervous in front of a camera. -Will have fun and laugh right along with you. -Go the extra mile to make your day even more memorable. -Truly care about capturing your special moments. -Enjoy celebrating their clients. -Are laid back and fun, but still have a driven, professional attitude. -Are quick and prompt to respond. -Are very reliable, flexible and true to their word. -Will accommodate a tailored package specific to your event. -Will turnaround photos faster than you can get off the phone with that crazy aunt who tries to keep you on the phone forever. . -Are fairly and reasonably priced for high quality product. No business I’ve encountered has ever had such wonderful follow-through, attention to detail, and true care for meeting their clients’ expectations. If you enjoy the outdoors, it’s a no-brainer to hire Marc and Brenda as your photographers. They will capture your moments in ways you’ve never thought possible. And even if you don’t like the outdoors, these two would do an excellent job because they’re great listeners and are very accommodating to what you as a client are looking for. But seriously: “I prefer a boring awkwardly staged family photo over a romantic sunset view of the mountains,” said No One ever. I’m an extremely awkward person who is not usually photogenic. I typically delete more photos than I keep. So for me to be at ease during the whole process and excited about the photos that came back says quite a bit. I think if we had hired different photographers, there’s a very high chance we would have been disappointed. We met with a couple other photographers before discovering Bergreen, and none of them clicked with us quite like Brenda & Marc. They explained everything during our consult, and made it really easy to wrap our heads around. They were clearly pros who love what they do, and we knew right away they were the best fit for us and what we had in mind.”

“We really wanted photographers who could capture the outdoor beauty of our mountain wedding, as well as draw out our personalities in our photos. Brenda and Marc were friendly, approachable, always accessible, and set our minds at ease. It really helps to be surrounded by calm, and happy people who enjoy their job on your big day. All of our family and friends were blown away by the quality, creativity, and fairytale quality of the images (not to mention the sheer quantity). The photos are a really balanced mix of the small details that made our wedding personal (e.g. cake, rings, centerpieces), the people we love, and the gorgeous outdoor setting that we really wanted to incorporate. They even had a brief running slideshow on a tablet at one of our tables during dinner of the photos they had just taken hours before (so cool! Our guests were thrilled!). The photobook we received recently is one of our most treasured keepsakes and will help us relive the magic every time we look at it. A million thanks to a couple of amazing photographers and all around delightful people!”

“Aside from marrying each other, hiring these two was the best decision we made. Their professionalism, kindness, and attention to detail was second to none. The album they put together is a piece of art. Every time we look at it, we feel like children in love. Anybody who has seen it, is lost for words. It’s the little things in life that slip by without notice they capture very well. Thank you Marc and Brenda.”

“One excellent piece of advice I was given when I started the wedding planning process was to invest in the photography it’s these pictures that you’ll have years from now to look back on to remember your special day. Choosing Marc and Brenda was, without a doubt, the best wedding investment we made! The first time my husband Tim and I met the Bergreens was at Starbucks and we chatted over a cup of coffee. It was a casual setting and not stuffy at all; and that’s just the way we like things! They made us feel comfortable from the get-go. Tim feels pretty awkward in any picture-taking event, so it was very important to have someone photographing us without adding any stress. Our engagement PhotoDate in Sequoia National Park was such a fun day! Marc and Brenda did give us some direction, but basically let us do our own thing. They have a keen eye and were able to capture moments that I would have completely overlooked. The time between our engagement PhotoDate and wedding day, they kept in touch with us and if we had any questions, they got back to us in a very timely manner. The day of the wedding went by so quick; most of my memories are from the pictures that were taken. I cherish every single candid snapshot Marc and Brenda gave to us. One last thing that I highly enjoyed was all the little gifts they sent us; like the wedding “emergency kit,” the notebook, and even the wrapping our photo album came in. They pay attention to the details, and it makes things that much more magical. They are the epitome of professionalism and are great people in general! We cannot thank Marc and Brenda enough!”

“Marc and Brenda were awesome during our wedding and engagement shoot. We are so happy that we had them as our wedding photographers and the pictures were one of the best parts of our wedding!

We get so many compliments on our photos!!! Choosing Marc and Brenda as your wedding photographers should be one of the easiest decisions! <3″

“We truly cannot rave enough about Marc and Brenda Bergreen – they photographed our wedding in the Sierras and made our weekend so memorable. They did a photo date session for us on Friday, and then photographed our wedding on Saturday. They scoped out photo locations ahead of time, and found the most beautiful and unexpected areas. They got to know us, listened to our ideas, and then used their talent to create really authentic photos that capture us as a couple. They are such professionals, plus really really nice and genuine people – they are the real deal. They went extra lengths to set up a special long-exposure night shot for us, and helped create beautiful memories. I absolutely recommend them!”
