Wedding & Family photographer serving Okeechobee and florida's treasure coast
more about Me
I’m Brandi! I’m a wife and mom doing grown up things in sunny South Florida. Watford is my maiden name, but I started this little biz way before I took Eric’s last name.
I love to travel. If I ever move away from Florida, you’ll find me in New York City or California. My days are fueled by an endless supply of coffee and podcasts. I could eat sushi 7 days a week if the closest sushi joint wasn’t 45 minutes away. I love fashion but hate shopping. I’m an introvert who avoids social functions unless I have my camera in hand to make me feel human.
I stumbled into photography as a teenager (we won’t talk about what year that was!) and I couldn’t be more grateful. I love this job like a kid loves Christmas.

Making connections with people is by far the biggest perk of my job. Receiving a heartfelt email after delivering a bride's album, telling me how looking at her images in print blew her away in a whole new way. Getting ecstatic texts with pictures of a positive pregnancy test. Answering late night phone calls from an emotional mom who just opened her gallery and can't believe the beautiful woman in the photo with her babies is HER. That's what makes my heart sing, and I'm looking forward to providing this same experience for YOU.
"If you don't choose this woman as your photographer you are silly! She is so professional, efficient, warm and funny! We are so glad we chose her as our wedding photographer. We just did our engagement session and the photos were flawless! I can't imagine how amazing our wedding photos are going to be. We will definitely be using her for all of our milestones in this crazy life! Choose Brandi - you will not be disappointed! "

I was nervous about having my pictures taken, due to my awkwardness with standing in front of a camera! Brandi came through and completely made me feel comfortable with myself, her, and the camera! With her jokes and warm personality, she made my photo shoot a fun and exciting experience! She got me out of my shell immediately, and I started to completely roll with her creativeness, and had fun with it! To anyone thinking about booking with her... what are you waiting for? Definitely do it! She will turn your photo shoot dreams to a beautiful reality!
"Brandi did an amazing job capturing all of the moments of our day. I was so relaxed knowing she had it all under control and kept things efficient and fun. I was somewhat nervous on what to expect and how my husband would do with all of it. But Brandi made it so simple and fun for both of us. I was also a little apprehensive about bridal party and family pictures, but she had a very organized way of making sure all of that got done as well."

"Brandi and her assistant worked so well with my family the day of my wedding! I am so happy I was referred to her. I highly recommend everyone to use her for everything! She was absolutely amazing with our newborn; she was very patient and soothing for the baby. She took her time and she does all the beautiful swaddles herself. We are so excited to continue using her for all special photographed events! Brandi is an amazing person and so is her work."

Yes! I love documenting extended families and all the dynamics that come along with them.
Of course! I’d love to show you a full wedding gallery. Email me and I'll send you a few to look at.
Yep. That and so much more. Once the contract has been signed and retainer has been paid, I'll send you a bridal guide with lots of information on vendors, timeline examples, engagement session specifics, and lots of other non-photography but definitely wedding-related info. 6 weeks before your wedding, I'll draft up a customized timeline for you based on where you'll be getting ready, whether you're having a first look, and how far your ceremony and reception are from each other.
I will guide you through the posing process so you never feel lost or awkward.
At this time, no. My focus is 100% on photography (and hand painting the occasional wedding invite). But I know lots of incredible videographers who I can put you in touch with.
Sessions are delivered through a high resolution, downloadable, online gallery. It's perfect for sharing with family and friends. It's very convenient to download to your computer and phone. You are advised to backup your sessions through external hard drives. If you'd like, I do offer USB's for an additional fee of $50.
When editing your images, I put a lot of time and love into each and every image! I make sure the edit on your images are consistent throughout your entire session. Portrait sessions (engagement, family, baby, senior) are 3 weeks. Weddings are 8 weeks or less. Please know I also work hard to get your images back to you as soon as possible. For your wedding day, you’ll receive a sneak peek gallery of up to 20-30 images to hold you over!
No matter your age, your gender identity, your race, who you love, you are welcome here. Every one of you. There's no room for hate here.
