Hey there, I'm Sophie.
I live in Greenville, SC, I am married to the most wonderful man, Cameron, and I am mom to the two cutest Goldendoodles you've ever seen, Leo + Hudson (not biased at all, it's true. See below :) I find joy in capturing the beauty that I see in relationships and in His creation through my lens. I have never seen more of the Lord and His faithfulness than I have through starting this business. I would be lying if I said that any of this was my doing when it is so evident that He is the founder of Sophie Brendle Photography. May I never forget that or never make that unknown!
Here is what I've learned:
Why i do what i do -
I quickly fell in love with the process, not just the product.
For me, my photography journey all began my freshman year of college in a film photography class. There was something about the experience of being in a darkroom, processing my work, and not being able to see what I'd captured until the final product that I found exhilarating and humbling. The immediate digital gratification was dismissed- which is something the world is all about these days. But it wasn't just the camera I loved, it was what I held in my hand at the end of it all. I fell in love with the moments I began to see slowly come to life in print from those days I spent in the darkroom. I began to see photographs as a tangible way to preserve the real, raw, and authentic moments. Because here's the thing, your flowers will wilt, your rentals will be returned, and your dress will be dirty at the end of your wedding day. However, the pictures, well, they are there long after the wedding day is over.
If you're looking for a photographer to document who you truly are as a couple, then I’m your girl. I want to give you something that helps you remember every laugh and every happy tear. All the way from your engagement session to your wedding day, I want you to know I’m here to serve you. My hope is that I will be there to capture those real and intimate moments that happen naturally when two people are in just simply in love.
Below are a few things that may help you decide if I'm the best fit for you!
