When my husband, Chris and I first met with Brian, we came to see his creativity, professionalism, and excitement for his craft which is what really convinced us to book him as our photographer. Our engagement session, as shy as Chris is, actually went very well. Brian had great ideas ranging from simplistic and traditional to inspiring and creative. He truly made both of us comfortable enough to capture the best pictures. One thing I loved about  his session is that I could tell he did his research. Brian grabbed photos he was inspired by to give us examples of what he wanted us to do in the pictures. I really appreciated the thought and effort he put into that piece. Our wedding went even better than the engagement session since Chris opened more for photos. Brian was very professional, wearing a suit to the event and blending into the background to capture eat picture organically. He was very flexible with the large number of family and friends he needed to work with, so things went very smooth. From a cost perspective, Brian is very reasonable compared to other vendors that rack up the price just because they can. I am so pleased that there are honest, hardworking, and good photographers (like Brian) to choose from for those that can’t afford to blow our budget. Overall, Brian was an absolute dream to work with and is extremely creative. He is a complete visionary for his craft.” – Wendy, 2014 Bride

“My wife and I had the good fortune of having Brian as the second photographer on our wedding day. He showed up with a big smile and excited to get to work. When the wedding parties split to get separate photos, Brian came with me to get photos of the groomsmen. We had a great time for the whole shoot. He was able to mix his professional responsibility very well with having fun doing the job. We got our serious photos out of the way and had a few requests for some fun photos we were interested in, most notably for getting a photo that made it look like we were running away from Godzilla. While fun for us, it would mean extra editing work for Brian, as we had not actually invited Godzilla to the wedding, and he would have to be edited into the photo. He was very excited about the idea, and was up to the challenge. Needless to say, the photo turned out great, and we had a lot of fun making that memory. During the wedding and the reception, Brian also did a fantastic job. While guests always expect a photographer at these events, it is still a nuisance when the photographers get in the way. We never had that problem with Brian. He was very polite and accommodating, and was able to get all of the photos we wanted without even once being “in the way.” Many of our friends and family made it a point to comment on how nice he was, and how he had done an excellent job. Polite, professional, and a lot of fun, Brian was a pleasure to work with, and all of the photos he took were wonderfully shot and edited. We would trust him with any photos we need taken in the future, and would not hesitate to hire him again.” – Jake2014 Groom

“I cannot say enough about how amazing Brian is! We took our engagement photos with him this past October. He really takes his time to make sure he gets the best shots even if that means for a long session. We had rainy cold weather BUT oh my goodness the photos turned out AMAZING. I couldn’t be happier with the finished product. What a gem Brian is. Thank you SO much! I HIGHLY recommend to any and all!” – Shannon, 2015 Bride

“Brian shot our vow renewal last weekend and we couldn’t be happier. He was so much fun (yet professional) and the images are amazing! As a photographer myself, I have high standards and he met every one of them. I’m so happy to call him our photographer and a friend!” – Casey, 2015 Bride

“Brian took my daughter’s engagement and wedding pictures. He is very passionate and creative. Thanks for capturing our special day with Laura and Shawn and our newly expanded family. You have to see his work! Unbelievable! Trust me – you will not be disappointed.” – Melody, 2015 MOB (Shawn + Laura)

“Brian was up for anything and a lot of fun to work with. After getting to know each other via phone, we scheduled a sunrise engagement sessionhoping the sky would cooperate. The morning could not have gone better! Brian was on time, willing to give direction when needed, but still let us be us. Brian was able to turn the beautiful images around in a really efficient time frame. I would highly recommend Brian to anyone looking for lifestyle images!” – Kimberly, 2015 Bride

“Brian Munoz IS AMAZING!!! Talented, patient, creative… not to mention he is the NICEST PERSON EVER. Our photos turned out better than we could have ever hoped! Brian captured every single moment and detail of our big day perfectly. My entire family is just in awe of your talent! You captured every moment in such a beautiful, natural manner. We had SO MANY great shots from our wedding – I don’t think there was a single photo we didn’t love. I can’t say enough great things about this photographer. Brian won us over with his sweet disposition, flexibility and his amazing eye for detail and framing. Brian took our engagement photos last fall. He will also be the first person I call for maternity or family photos too! You will not be disappointed with Studio Fiftyone Photography. Thank you, thank you, and thank you!!” – Adriana, 2014 Bride

“It was such a pleasure to work with Brian! The photos he took of our proposal were amazing! I am so happy my fiancé found him to capture one of the best days of my life!!! The photos taken were amazing!!! Thank you!” – Suzanne, 2015 Bride

“After seeing some of Brian’s work through Facebook, I decided to call Brian for more information, and I am so happy that I did. Shortly after speaking to Brian, we set up an engagement session and it was a blast! My fiancé and I had so much fun at the shoot and were so impressed with our photos. Brian is talented beyond his years and has such a passion for what he does. I would highly recommend Studio Fiftyone Photography!” – Laura, 2015 Bride

“My fiance and I had a very positive experience with Studio FiftyOne Photography! I was coming from out of state to visit my fiance and we wanted to have our engagement photos taken in St Louis. I was really searching in the dark for photographers, and I was starting to feel a little lost and frustrated… but then I stumbled across Brian’s work on Instagram! I’m so glad I did; after talking with him via email and phone and looking through more of his work, I was pleased to find that he was available for our dates. Our photography sessions went so smoothly and were very fun! Some stormy, rainy weather cut our session short, but Studio FiftyOne was accommodating as we rescheduled the remainder of the shoot. Brian has a willingness to engage spontaneity, and he lends an excitement that makes the session itself a happy memory.” – Danielle, 2015 Bride

“Brian shot our vow renewal last weekend and we couldn’t be happier. He was so much fun (yet professional) and the images are amazing! As a photographer myself, I have high standards and he met every one of them. I’m so happy to call him our photographer and a friend!” – Casey, 2015 Bride

“Brian Munoz of Studio Fiftyone Photography came to shoot my graduation and left as a new part of our family. He rolled with the tide that my family and friends evoke when they all come together. I did not feel as though we were hyper-aware of his presence as a photographer because Brian fit right in. Add to this his easygoing, humorous, yet professional personality and anyone can see why he will be my first choice for photos for always!” – Robin, 2014 Client

“Thank you so much for having the patience to shoot my 5 day old baby! We loved all his pictures but most of all I loved the way I felt comfortable and not rushed during the shoot. It takes a lot to shoot any baby especially an uncooperative newborn, yet still his photos came out amazing! Thank you so much and I can’t wait to shoot with you again!” – Isidra, 2013 Client

“It takes someone really special to be able to capture a moment as beautifully as Brian has done and he has a real photographer’s eye when it comes to locations, posing, lighting and angles. For people who are generally self-conscious like myself being on the other end of a camera lens can be nerve wracking and I was really impressed by how comfortable and secure Studio Fiftyone Photography made me feel while he took my family’s photos. When you first meet Brian you’re able to tell how much he loves what he does by the way that he smiles when he’s looking through the view finder. You’ll see that the way he moves with his camera makes it seem as if it’s an extension of himself. I really felt like he put his heart and soul in the photos he took and I love the way that he captured one of my most favorite days in history. The world would be a better place if more people were as hard working, hands on and committed as Brian Munoz.” – Hannah, 2014 Client

“My family and I had Brian take family photos on a crisp, Autumn evening. Brian was VERY accommodating to a small toddler. He worked VERY well with the child as we tried to keep the baby in chipper spirits. Brian took AMAZING pictures of our family! My family ranged from that small toddler to my parents that are nearing 60 years old. He captured beautiful, candid moments along with nicely posed pictures as well. He accommodated us for big group pictures as well as couple pictures. I was stunned by the creativity that he could come up with in such a brief moment. My family and I will treasure these pictures forever. Thank you, Brian, for such a wonderful evening and a lifetime of memories that were captured in these pictures.” – Krista, 2015 Client

“Brian is incredible! For a Christmas present my daughter hired him for a personalized photo shoot. He took amazing pictures of the entire family, 8 adults and 6 kiddos. He was very accommodating. He worked with us to turn my living room into a studio when rain ruined our outdoor picture plans, and he was super with the kids. I highly recommend Studio FiftyOne Photography.” – Kathy, 2015 Client
