Brian (owner/photographer) is the most humble, truly gifted photographer I've EVER worked with. With other photographers we met, my husband and I got on camera and laugh uncontrollably because we felt so awkward.....we only laughed with Brian because we were having a good time and felt at ease. We met beforehand (and the day of) with Pinterest ideas to help guide our engagement session. If there was something specific I was looking for, he nailed it without hesitation. He surpasses all expectations. My mother-in-law, after seeing 3 of the engagement photos, hired him immediately to capture our rehearsal dinner. When our wedding fell apart due of Hurricane Matthew (re-planned in 6 hours, moved cities due to evacuation, etc), Brian was so concerned and did everything in his power to be there for us. After the chaos settled, we chose to keep him on hand for a post-wedding beach shoot, and will continue to use him for everything from buying our first home to family reunions, to our first child.....we plan to hire the man INDEFINITELY. He's beyond words. My advice? Hire Brian. You won't regret it!!!

Brian and Nicky are wonderful to work with! We hired them to shoot our engagement and wedding. He was very easy to get a hold of and went above an beyond when answering all of my stressed out bride questions. He was the easiest vendor for me to work with and even helped me figure out non-photo details. He truly went above and beyond. During the engagement shoot, he was very accommodating of our ideas and let us be ourselves. The pictures ended up AMAZING! During the wedding stress, he was so chill and made me feel a lot more relaxed as pre-wedding nerves were setting in. Also, I barely noticed Brian during the wedding, but he must have been everywhere at once because we have so many great pictures that I never knew were being taken. I am so so glad that Brian and Nicky were there to document our major life moment. They are an awesome team and I wish them the best in all their future endeavors. My husband and I decided that we will be coming back to them for all of our family portraits in the future.

I’m so happy I found Brian Miller at Swell Studio and hired him as our wedding photographer! I just got my edited photos back from Brian and I can’t stop looking at them. He did such an amazing job of capturing the whole day, the special things I wanted, and all of the feels! It was so comforting to know that my photographer would only add to the positivity of the day; there was absolutely no stress. He also went above and beyond what was laid out in the contract and far exceeded my expectations in every way! Brian ROCKS!!


Kristina Garcia (5 out of 5 stars)

Brian and his assistant Sterling were beyond amazing! Brian's responsiveness and prompt replies as well as ideas on shooting were superb. Being from out of town, we were able to meet with Brian weeks before and discuss our options and get more comfortable with his work and persona. We would definitely recommend Brian and Sterling for anything photographic!

Oh, my! There are not enough characters to express the joy I feel because of my engagement! Truly, I can say this moment was CAPITALIZED because we had Brian M Miller as our photographer. He is professional, personable, and caring. It felt as if we were sharing the moment with family. Thanks Brian (and wife)! It was amazing!!!

We hired Brian to photograph our wedding in St Augustine. He came and met with us the day before to see the venue and get to know us and find out some ideas we wanted for pictures. He is very personable, caring and down to earth. On our wedding day, him and his assistant did a fantastic job. We went around and took first look pictures around the city and then he took pictures at the ceremony. When we saw the pictures we were so impressed! The way he captured the many moments and candid emotions within the pictures was incredible. All of the pictures had perfect lighting and color, and he used different angles and shots to create variety. We would definitely recommend Brian M Miller photography for your event!

Brian Miller was absolutely one of the best parts of our wedding. Brian understood exactly what we were looking for and captured some of the most amazing candid moments. Given the fact that our group was diverse and somewhat disorganized, you would have never known it looking at our photos. The photos are edited to perfection and are so vivid, I literally relive the moment every time I look at them. Thank you Brian, you will forever be a part of that special day for Joe and I !!!
