Hi my name is Brittany and I run B. Keene Photography!
My passion for photography started when I picked up a camera at the age of thirteen and realized how many special moments and happy times I could catch each time the film advanced. After many photography classes in high school, I attended Art Center College of Design in Pasadena where I got my bachelors in photography and imaging. During my time in school I studied abroad in London where my love for photography grew even more with every breathtaking sight I came across.
One of my favorite things about being a photographer is capturing each moment because every moment is special to someone; this is especially why I love photographing events. I know that each time I snap a photo, the image will mean something to someone.
I take my job seriously and love using lighting and all different angles to get the job done the right way; I’m not afraid to climb up on a chair to get a stunning angle for the perfect shot. I have a very keen eye for lighting and use high tech equipment so you can be sure nothing will be short of perfect. I also love traveling and being on location for each event.
Brittany’s life has revolved around Photography from the first time she picked up a camera at the age of 13. She got her start at Laguna Hills High School where she took her first Photography class.
