I am a destination wedding videographer & photographer based in the beautiful state of Utah. I LOVE WHAT I DO SO MUCH. I live and breathe photography & videography, whether it is teaching a course to other creatives or shooting an elopement.

I find that nature is influential to my work. Finding the perfect wildflower field to frame your engagement session or capturing a bright sun beam shinning through a tree during your wedding is my thing.

I have traveled to over 70 countries photographing and filming my love for this world and the people in it. Follow along via my travel instagram @bransonmaxwell.travel, or my wedding account @bransonmaxwell.photo



I am a SUPER friendly and warm person. I love getting to know my couples, laughing with their wedding party, and creating an environment where I can capture true personality and emotion. Every gallery and/or video I give back is entirely different from the other and is custom tailored to my couples true persona and character. I personally am an extrovert who enjoys celebrations, music, and dancing. 


Most people would describe me as down to earth, sociable, and professional. I am extremely directive and efficient when it comes to organizing your family for family portraits. At the same time I believe the wedding spotlight is on YOU TWO so I truly make an effort in giving you as much time as possible to enjoy your guests and each other’s company.


I own a floral company https://wildearthdesigns.com/ • Scuba diving is one of my favorite hobbies • I rewatch episodes of The Office a lot • I have 8 siblings • I visit Europe every couple months • I used to live in an old renovated church • I have been on over 800 flights • I am a big foodie • My favorite country is Japan • I graduated from UVU • I have a sister that is a wedding planner and designer 


I have extensive experience with engagements, bridals/formals, and weddings. I have shot over 400 weddings and elopements all over the globe and experience with nearly every culture, language, & wedding tradition there is.

Posing, lighting, and directing is my thing. The art and direction I provide goes further than just a pose and includes guides, tips, and tricks to get the best imagery possible. Couples book with me because I capture aesthetic and visually stunning memories.



My couples tend to be fun, happy, sophisticated, and down to earth. They value high quality art and trust me to produce it for them. They like intimate experiences and their photos and/or video to be focused on themselves.

People that are drawn to my work are people that want custom curated sessions and art that reflects their true character. This means locations, outfits, & poses are all carefully chosen to showcase their personality & relationship.

I only take a very limited amount of bookings per season so I can give each couple the attention and care they need. My couples receive numerous guides and tips and I truly take the time to prepare you for every session and make your imagery unique.


I grew up as a closeted gay, overweight, and broke. I loved art so, so much but I was afraid to express any of my artistic or “feminine” talents because I did’t want anyone to know I was gay. 

When I graduated high school I decided to come out of the closet, travel the world (with barely any money to my name), and take photos and videos which is what I loved most. I went to France first, and then throughout the next few years I have had thee privilege of filming and photographing couples in over 70 countries.  

I have had the privilege of working with many celebrities including Miss Universe Olivia Culpo, The Bachelorette Michelle Young, The Princess of Tonga, Lindsey Vonn, Madilyn Bailey, Alex prange, Rachel Parcel, Michael Dean, Charli Bird, and David Archuleta.  

Now, I am the most published wedding photographer/videographer in the state, own a wedding floral company https://wildearthdesigns.com/, & travel to a destination wedding about every month. It pays off to be yourself!


I edit my work to look natural and timeless so that it stays visually stunning forever. I avoid using trendy filters that go in and out of style, but I do tweak all my photos & videos to have a beautiful, golden hour hue that makes it look like the shot was taken at sunset.
