Brady Bates Photography

I specialize in wedding, couple and portrait photography based out of Culpeper, VA, but am always available to travel. I find great joy in documenting people in nature. My end goal is to deliver images that make you feel the same way you felt during your experience with me. I am all about capturing the in between moments and the unscripted beautiful candid's. 


I have grown up in Culpeper my whole life and I have loved every minute of it. From the Blue Ridge mountains to the beautiful downtown, I can’t imagine having grown up anywhere else. My passion for photography first began in high school. At the age of sixteen I started taking my friends senior photos for fun, and before I knew it, “Brady Bates Photography” was established. I am now eighteen years old and have been focusing on growing my business since I graduated from Culpeper County High School in 2017. I am excited to see what is in store for the rest of my photography.
