Contact Bradley Hanson







I am a photographer living Minneapolis, MN. My approach to wedding photography is a natural, fly-on-the-wall style in order to create beautiful images as they unfold rather than directing the action. I've found these real moments to be much more valuable to my clients than the staged shoots that some photographers favor. 
 
My wedding work is often described as wedding photojournalism or documentary style, a style I helped pioneer in Seattle since 1999. I regularly travel for weddings, and have been commissioned to photograph weddings all over the world.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

Minneapolis, MN. Travel fees negotiable per situation.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I've been shooting for 19 years (since 1999). I have personally photographed over 600 weddings.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

My approach to wedding photography is a natural, fly-on-the-wall style in order to create beautiful images as they unfold rather than directing the action. I've found these real moments to be much more valuable to my clients than the staged shoots that some photographers favor. Since being camera shy is so common, it also works well for clients who don't like to be photographed.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

I start at 6 hours of coverage.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I had a studio for years in Seattle, but don't see a need for one in Minneapolis as my work is all on location. I often "meet" my clients via FaceTime, Skype, or the phone as they may live in other states or other countries. I try to answer as many questions as possible pre-emptively on my website FAQ section.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I attended the Minneapolis College Of Art And Design and am currently a member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association and various other invite-only groups.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I think education about photography is important, and I have been doing a photography podcast with Ian Weldon, an English photographer. We speak with current photographers from various fields about a photographer in history. The conversation is often funny and philosophical, and it's been great to brush up on my photographic history. It's important to know your craft and to understand photo history and art history to be the best photographer you can be.
