I’m a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native living in an Old Bay, Crab shucking, Natty Boh drinking, Maryland world.
I'm a recovering coffee addict, avid volleyball player, physical therapist assistant (PTA), travel enthusiast, attempting to find my way into the wedding industry. I've got an amazing, beautiful girlfriend and a crazy 4 year-old maltese-poodle mix puppy at home that keep me on my toes.
Pizza + Chipotle are an easy way to my heart. At the same time? Yeah I wouldn't hate it. Craft beers really aren't just for hipsters and you'll probably find me with a bottle of red wine while I'm editing.
I value strong friendships and relationships - and if you're looking for a photographer that'll be there every step of the way and may or may not choke up during your vows (yeah I'll admit that's happened on a few occasions) then I am your guy!

the photographer behind
I picked up a camera and started Brad Nguyen Photography in the summer of 2013 in my small on-campus apartment at UMBC. I was getting ready to start the semester and realized that all my books for my senior year classes were MAD expensive. I needed some money to buy these books. So I picked up the camera and started to shoot some headshots, family shots and shadowed a few photography majors - and since then I've grown a lot since my days with the Canon Rebel T3i.
You’ve probably seen me take pictures at local volleyball tournaments a time or two, and through those connections, I began my journey into the wedding industry just a few years ago. Ever since that first solo wedding, I've taken every wedding as a learning experience. To learn and adapt to all sorts of situations, communicate effectively, along with ways to become a better photographer each moment.
My favorite part of being a photographer is building strong relationships. I love having the opportunity to meet so many amazing people and even grow a stronger bond with people I've spent time playing volleyball with and against! The world is a small place and I am truly honored to be able to share in such an intimate and important moment as witness to true acts of love.
I also love the editing process. Every time I look back as I edit the pictures - it takes me back to that day. Where we were, what was said, and the feeling and energy emitted by the couple I was shooting.
There’s so much more I could tell you about myself, but I want to learn more about you and what I can do to make your day as special as can be! So feel free to browse the albums and social media and reach out for any questions!
