Brian Garman is one of the most sought after wedding photographers in Iowa. His stunning images, coupled with his down-to-earth nature and painstaking attention to detail, have resulted in a business that has been built almost solely on word of mouth.

Brian began his photography career at the age of 12, when he borrowed his father’s twin reflex camera to explore nature. After studying photography and photo journalism throughout high school and college, Brian began shooting weddings in his hometown of Nevada at the age of 21. Today, having shot hundreds of weddings, he enjoys a reputation for being casual, likable, easy to work with and honest – and for creating storytelling images that capture the full breadth of emotions, joys and details surrounding each wedding.

Explaining his approach, Brian says, “your wedding day should be spent with family and friends, not the photographer. Capturing the day as it naturally happens will help lend to a day of fun and not of stress. It also allows true emotions and real personalities to be captured. I believe the best portraits are those taken while you are being yourself, not while you are molded into some uncomfortable pose.”

Brian’s wedding photography has been featured in Better Homes and Gardens – Simply Creative Weddings, Des Moines Business Record, and numerous local and national publications catering to brides and event planners. His photography has received numerous awards.

Brian currently resides in Urbandale Iowa sharing his love and style of photography with is two children Vanessa and Adam. Both have teamed with their father sharing his passion for wedding photography.
