Oh hi! We're Brea Marie & Alexander. We live a beautiful, simple life between two states, our 20 pound cat, and a love for travel.

From Brea Marie

I’m a small human with a huge passion to create and explore. It’s what keeps me going when life gets me down, and I’m very keen on seeing the bright side. There’s so much freedom in allowing yourself to like things and I always try to focus on that truth. Anyone who’s met me knows that I’m a pretty sensitive soul, and I love to use that sensitivity as a tool to build strong connections in life. Be it with a friend or a client, I care about who you are and I want to know what makes your heart ache with joy or sorrow. The more real, the better. I usually have crazy hair (right now it's silver, but it's always changing) and I love to rock a good red lip. I also love to make people laugh and absurd dance moves are my specialty.

My favorite ways to decompress are: keeping my hands busy with various arts (think watercolor, hand weaving, calligraphy, or knitting), drinking red wine with dinner, and snuggling with my 21 pound cat named Leonard.

 

From Alexander

The first thing I can tell you about myself is that I live my days around basically one thing - experiencing people and places in as many ways as possible. I am obsessed... nay, consumed... with the desire to make art, and photographing connections between people is just one way I love to do that. I've been fortunate enough to marry Brea Marie - a kind, intelligent, and creative powerhouse who shares my penchant for photography and beautiful things. I don't know if that's because I'm lucky or if she's silly. Probably both. I believe in portraying who I am honestly. When shooting photos, you can expect me to tell the truth about whether or not your chin looked good in that shot, or if your arms look weird hanging like that.

Practically speaking, I enjoy a good burger, local craft beer from literally anywhere, great design, laughing, and... yeah, sometimes I cry, so what? I love making friends, so if anything, let's just chat for fun and maybe have a whisky.

Some love from our friends

Des + Mitch

Provence, France

I’m sitting here in tears just trying to put into words what this all means to me. What Mitch means to me. What our friends mean to us. What this place now means to all of us. After feeling jaded and insisting that making friends in our industry was futile, a couple of amazing souls picked us out of a crowd and told us we belonged to them. Heart and soul. Brea and Alex have given to us selflessly, built us up, made us feel worthy. Its not easy making friends when you are always at different parts of the world with busy schedules and stressful deadlines. But they make it feel almost too easy. Because we love them. And they love us. And so, this is our epic love fest. Filled with sunshine, David Bowie on the playlist and the beautiful storied towns of southern France.

Rachael + Matt

Bridgewater, Vermont

Let’s start with the raw truth: Brea Marie and Alex are simply amazing at what they do. They are at once artists and true professionals in every sense of the words. From our very first conversation, they were immediately invested in getting to know us. We are so grateful they did. That personal approach paid dividends by the time our wedding weekend came around a year and half later. They sought to understand us as a couple and as people, and that allowed them to honestly capture the essence of our relationship and our event. If you’re fine with the idea of your photographers just showing up for your wedding day, snapping the shutter, and sending you a photo album a few weeks later, then The Wayfarers are probably not for you. On the other hand, if you’re seeking someone who will take the time to get to know you and your partner, invest themselves in your celebration, and develop a meaningful relationship, then you’re likely not going to find anybody more capable and willing than Brea and Alex.

Alex and Brea are incredible photographers. They will capture the essence of you, your love, and your event in all ways. As a duo, they have a creative eye that will show in your images. Make a good decision and have a conversation with them – you will know how intelligent, creative, and remarkable the Wayfarers are at that moment. The images speak for themselves – they are warm and interesting and better than anything a ‘normal photographer’ can shoot. These are remarkable images that capture nature and your surroundings, the feel of the day, the emotion between people. The shooting is comfortable and fun, you feel relaxed the entire time. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Wayfarers! They are the dreamiest, most talented photographers you will find – book them now, this will be your easiest and best decision.
