"Our Experience is the Difference"
104 East Yelm Avenue 98597 - Serving the PNW from Seattle to Portland and everywhere in between!
We are Shane and Tia BRANT, a husband and wife photography team.
Shane’s whole life has always been centered around photography and I cannot imagine him being any other way. He grew up assisting his Dad, who is a professional photographer in Texas. Photography was, and I think will continue to be with ours as well, a family affair. Shane majored in Photography at Sam Houston State and has freelanced for several local studios and I love how he always jumps at the chance to learn more. One of the things he has said that is so true is how a person’s eyes shows emotion and that tells their story, which makes portraiture his favorite form of photography. When Shane first showed me his Portland Bridges and Cityscape prints, I was really impressed, then I found out this is just what he does in his free time! He is always looking for photos wherever we go and never ceases to amaze me with the shots he gets. Shane's dad is so proud that we have a full service photography studio in our little town of Yelm, WA.
Tia has been in love with photography since her first real taste of capturing images with a film camera she bought for high school graduation. When she moved to the Oregon Coast to attend Ecola Bible School, Tia was overtaken with how she could capture the beauty of God’s creation through her lens. There was no looking back after that. I was impressed with her winning multiple awards at state, national, and international levels. The portraits of the beautiful children in Africa she has taken made me fall even more in love with her. It’s so awesome how when we are at a shoot, I will be shooting the main subject and Tia goes off and shoots an amazing detail shot I would have never thought to shoot. It sounds cheesy, but she truly completes me. We compliment each other's styles and strengths to capture every moment for portraits to pass on through generations.
We would never have thought the person we were meant to marry would be a photographer as well, but it’s great because we both understand that it will always take more time when either of us has a camera in our hands to get from point A to point B. Between the two of us we have over 25 years of experience and have shot hundreds of weddings; through this, we realize what a joy it brings us to capture someone’s story. As we continue to explore our love for telling stories through photography, and capturing that special moment through a person’s eyes, we are amazed time and time again by the way light can shape and dance across a person’s face or a beautiful landscape. We have sold our photos in galleries, had them on calendar publications and even have been featured on Wedding Chicks Blog. We are proud to be Yelm's premier portrait studio and have won 'The Best of Nisqually Photographer 2 years running! In 2012 God brought us a new subject to learn to photograph, our beautiful son and in 2017 our daughter. We cannot get over how many photos we have taken of them or how special they are to us. We both really love that we can just go on a date and photograph a dramatic sunset at the beach or star trails over Mt. Rainier. Who else can do that with their spouse? It’s amazing to have that connection and share a common ambition. It is our passion and goal to capture how beautiful God’s creations are through the lens of our cameras, to bring Him glory and to bless others with precious memories by creating family heirlooms for their homes.
