Hey! I am Bri Manuel: forever newlywed, dog mom, creative old soul, and 5+ year - always learning - photographer!

I get asked a lot, "why photography?" Well, I have always loved it since I picked up my dad's old Nikon at about thirteen.
 I continue to have a passion for it simply because it's selfishly, a chance to be a part of the fondest, happiest memories.


Why "ShortShot?!"... I'm super short, literally that's it.
Why a bumblebee?! Two reasons:

First and foremost, family! Me and my two sisters' names start with a "B" & our dad always called us the "killer bees!" It has stuck with us as we have grown into adults! You can probably find a bee on me at all times! (Can we make that a game?)

…& we've all heard the quote "Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know it, so it goes on flying anyway." Now this is probably false, but I like it. If someone tells you that you can't do something - prove them wrong and do it anyway!

"Bri did amazing newborn photos for my daughter & did great at working with her and with me on time. 10/10 would recommend!"
