Brady Puryear | Artist Spotlight | Beyond the Wanderlust | Inspirational Photography Blog

When the blog first started, artist spotlights were a huge part! For a little while artist spotlights had stopped but now they are back and with a twist! I am bringing artist spotlights back and adding a speed round of “would you rather” questions; because who doesn’t like to have some fun! If you have an artist you are dying to hear from email suggestions to Jessica at !

When did you get your start in the industry?
I was a graphic designer and did some work for a wedding photographer who encouraged me to shoot with him. After shooting my first wedding I was hooked on the fun of the day and the lasting purpose the work had. To date I have shot almost 300 weddings since 2008.

What would typically be found with you during a shoot?
Tons of laughing and pretty light.

If you could dream a perfect shoot, what would it be?
My images are personality driven so the funner and more in love the couple the better the shoot. Also pretty light helps too!
