Cirque91 Photography Raleigh Wedding Photographer, About

Meet Brennan

Hello there! I’m just a middle millennial that was gifted my first DSLR camera by my father 10 years ago. This is one of the many ways we bonded. We go out and document events together.
I know what’s like looking for a wedding photographer who will care about you and your individual stories. A wedding photographer that you can trust to be sincere and honest.

My Approach

I’m here to help you by not only being your photographer but a guide to find other vendors that are also genuine, understanding and open minded.
I will help you through this entire process by offering advice that honors your vision and story, ending with a heirloom that recounts the days’ events for future generations.

A little more about me!

I'm a huge fan of movies and TV. I most easily identify with others by quoting movies (and tiktoks). I'll be your cheerleader and your hype girl. You look your best when you feel your best. Be ready to gassed up like you'll never believe during our time together.

I'm the person that truly wants to observe and capture the moment.  At the end of the day our memories need a little help. If I could save one thing from a fire, it would be the photographs. They capture memories that I not only want to return to, I want to be able to share them as well!

It doesn't end there

Upon graduating college with a degree in Spanish, I returned to my hometown of Charlotte, NC. I was at the time unable to procure a job, and to be quite honest I didn’t have the slightest clue as to what I wanted to do or where I could see my life heading. On a whim I applied to be an English teacher in Madrid, Spain and got accepted. I made the courageous, daring and frankly crazy jump, left everything I knew and moved to a foreign country where I knew nobody or anything.

I took the year abroad to intimately acquaint myself with Spanish culture and customs. I also got to spend time with their landscapes and gorgeous nature. I learned so much about myself. I unearthed a confidence and self assurance that I didn’t know I had. Moving to a new country and starting from metaphorical scratch lit the thirst for adventure that has been unquenchable ever since.

I found my why

During this time I traveled to several countries including England, France, Hungary, Portugal, Denmark, Sweden and pretty much the entirety of Spain. As I traveled these countries and toured I was floored by what I heard, the people I met and the sites I was able to see. More than anything I wanted to do what human beings are meant to do, connect. All I ever thought about was how much more meaningful it would be if I had those closest to me experiencing it as well. I taught myself how to not just snap photographs but how to document my personal experiences. I had to capture and recreate these experiences to the best of my ability. I became, in essence, a story teller. Not only did I aim to document things and places, but I had the desire to make sure people could see and feel things I saw and felt throughout my days. had to make a conscious effort to be present in the moment and see with eyes unclouded and well rounded.

I hope to do this for you!!

See My Work

My way about photographing is to give you (and your partner) prompts. They won’t be complicated and I curate a list of poses so to speak that best fit my clients personalities. (Hint: Fill out that pesky personality questionnaire).

Browse through my past work and portfolio. My style is romantic and timeless. Although I am able and quite competent in flash photography, natural light photography is where my heart truly thrives.
