Casey Brodley, Photographer

I’m not a traditional wedding photographer. My background and training is steeped in photo journalism, so that’s how I approach a wedding. My goal is to document the day, not stage it. I let moments unfold naturally, with minimal prom posing and minimal “say cheese” interference.

As a photo journalist, I come prepared for anything. Every wedding is different. I have witnessed full-grown men weep more times than I can count. I have seen smiles so wide that I’m concerned someone may burst a blood vessel. I have climbed mountains with all my gear. And this one time a sprinkler system was triggered during a ceremony.

As a wedding photographer, I walk into every job with the guarantee that I will witness pure joy. But more importantly, I walk into every job with the probability that my day will end with cake. I like to keep my cake-to-work ratio balanced. For health reasons.

Spreading Lovely

Welcome to Spreading Lovely!  We’re a full service event planning & design company based in the San Francisco Bay Area, serving all of The Golden State and beyond and tailor all services to fit your specific event needs.  Plus, with every booking, we donate 10% to the charity of your choice because we believe in not only making a difference in our clients’ lives, but also in countless other lives we may never otherwise have the opportunity to reach.

Of course we love a great party, but more importantly we believe in love, we believe in a marriage after the wedding, and we love being a part of life’s major milestones and helping you navigate the (sometimes) mountains of details.  With our wealth of knowledge, creativity and experience we’ll illuminate and inspire your ideas to create a one-of-a-kind event that authentically reflects YOUnot us, or what anyone tells you it should be.

We know how to leverage small design details of texture, color and lighting to elevate an event and create the ambiance you desire. We love collaborating to create unique event concepts, after all – it’s your story that makes the best inspiration.  If lots of glitter and bright colors best reflects your fun loving nature, awesome, we’re in!  If an elopement on a mountain top is more your thing, fantastic, we’re in!  Our number one job is to be on your team and provide a voice of reason, guidance and experience to streamline the planning and execute your event more exceptional than you imagined.

We believe you should be fully present and live in the moment on your wedding day, not sweating the small stuff!  That’s why we’re here to make the road to your wedding more fun, more relaxed and more enjoyable by taking care of the planning, design and organization details so you can still make it to Sunday brunch and do more of what makes you happy while celebrating the path to this amazing commitment to each other!
