Brett Butterstein

Named one of the top ten wedding photographers by American Photo Magazine, Brett Butterstein is a San Diego based wedding photographer who wants to create pictures you can brag about. My approach to wedding photography is making vibrant, non-traditional photos that tell a story and give a sense of atmosphere. Before becoming a full time traveling wedding photographer in 2005, I worked as a staff photographer at newspapers and on assignment for publications such as Outside Magazine and The New York Times.
