A Little About Us

Mr. & Mrs. Schmidt. Brent & Nicole. Wait. What? We are Brent Andrew Schmidt and Nicole Elizabeth Schmidt. Together, outside of husband & wife, mother and father, we are Elizabeth Andrew Photography. Happily married for going on five years, we have had the pleasure of being a part of numerous families and friends lives through the work we put in behind the camera (and computer screen) since 2010. Brent is the main photographer and image editor, while Nicole does her magic behind the scenes and on site as a second shooter and assistant during our sessions.

My Favorite Quote

Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph. – Matt Hardy

During the day I’m a stay-at-home mother to my wonderful, active, adventurous little Teagan, our 2 year old daughter. I couldn’t have asked for a better child than what she is. She is my entire world and I just love seeing her grow up in front of me. Nikki

I was born and raised in the valley of the sun, AKA Phoenix, AZ until one day this Disney loving, Army uniform wearing funny guy messaged me on an online dating site and I gave him a shot. We immediately clicked and have been together now for over five loving years, through thick and thin of this Army life I let myself be a part of.

During the day, I’m a US Army Soldier based out of Fort Bragg here in Fayetteville, NC. I’ve been in the Service since 2007. I’ve made our family move from Arizona, to (Fort Sill) Oklahoma, back to Arizona while I went overseas to South Korea (Camp Casey) for a year, followed by (Fort Hood) Texas where I was deployed overseas for six months to Kuwait and Jordan, and now the Army decided to move us to our current location at Fort Bragg. It’s been a wild couple of years, but I’ve enjoyed every minute of it being with the ones I love.

I began an interest in photography just after high school, taking on local concerts, moving on to amusement parks, and finally diving in to what we do now in 2010 when I invested in actual professional grade photography gear. Having Nicole as a sidekick for me in this business of ours is a blessing, as she keeps me on my toes, spots things that can make a great photo even better, and pushing me to be a better person day in and day out. Speaking of that, our daughter is my pride and joy and there’s nothing better in the world than seeing her light up during play time with her. Photography has taken on a whole new world since she arrived in my life, and capturing her day in and day out has quickly become something has brought a whole new level of enjoyment to this profession. I’m always counting down the days until I can return to the West Coast and get my Disneyland fix in, as I was a Cast Member there from 2006-2007. I FINALLY visited Walt Disney World in 2014 and I can’t wait to make a return trip there. I love In-N-Out Burger, Vanilla Coke, and the reactions friends and families get when our clients put up their photos we took on their Facebook, Instagram, tumblr, and other social media sites.

SESSION DETAILS

Before Your Session

Once we’ve scheduled a day for our session together, I will contact you to chat about location and clothing choices. I am on an location, natural light photographer who loves to use my surroundings as part of creative composition in photos. Together we will decide on a great spot to have our session where you and your family will feel comfortable to just be themselves.
Once we’ve selected a date, it will be held for you for 5 days. During that period, a 50% deposit must be received in order to confirm the date for your family. The balance will be due on the day of your shoot. The session fee is non-refundable.

During Your Session

Sessions typically last about 45 minutes and have a very informal environment. There are moments where I may pose or set up a shot but for the most part, I am looking to just capture your family as they are in a beautifully candid style.

After Your Session

Your proofs will be presented approximately 2-3 weeks after your session in an online, private gallery. Your collection of photos will consist of 30-40 of the best images from your session that have been artfully processed, from which you may choose your 20 images you’d like on your CD.

Due to the custom nature of my work, all fees are non-refundable and no orders can be placed before payment is received. I do this work because I love it, so I’m never too busy to entertain your questions or accommodate your special request!

 

Wedding Session Pricing Options

As a storyteller, my goal for photographing your wedding is to produce images that tell the story of your day from beginning to end. What we provide isn’t a photo album of pictures. It’s a story. A way to live your day over and over again. Some couples spend years and many thousands of dollars planning their wedding and it goes by in 12 hours like any other day. The only one who can make that day last forever is your photographer.
