Hello Future Clients!

A little bit about us! We formed Neeley Photography back in 2012, as Sophomores in High School. Bree and Jesse, the business owners, are a boyfriend/girlfriend duo who run our business.

Our mission is to capture the beauty, personality, and individuality of each client!

Awards: Best of Show Indiana State Fair 4-H Photography in 2013. Indiana State Fair Open Class Second Place Winner for Wedding Photography in the Professional Division in 2017. Indiana State Fair Open Class Honorable Mention in Professional Nature Photography 2018. USI Juried Student Art Show (Merit Award, Gift of: Jennifer L. Porter-Kieffer '06, Laurel Vaughn) 2021.

Jesse: Studied at Nikon School in Raleigh 2014 and Chicago 2016. He has his degree in accounting and computer information systems. Currently he is in charge of scheduling, accounting, and communication for the business.

We love taking photos together too. It's been something we've been doing together since we started dating in 8th grade, a few years before we started our business. Here is a little collection of some of our favorite memories, and shoots together!

Some of our favorite things outside of photography?


We are passionate about quality time with family and friends! We don't have the biggest family, but that means we cherish the ones we love even harder.


We love going on lunch dates, and usually find ourselves at Panera or getting sushi.

Neither of us really drink coffee. But our Starbucks order is: (Jesse) Green Tea Frappuccino, (Bree) Iced Green Tea Latte add citrus and mint OR a London Fog.

Bree loves making cocktails for friends and family, and is always creating new recipes. If she wasn't a photographer, she'd probably be a bartender.


Jesse's passions include UFO's, conspiracy theories, and playing the guitar.

Bree loves to roller skate, and is finally starting to get fast!

Our greenhouse is our new obsession! We have so many cute plant baby's now.


We are horror movie fanatics (as long as it's not gory). Name a horror movie, and we have probably watched it!


Some quick favorites! (We share most of our favorites, until it comes to podcasts):

Movies: The Conjuring Universe, The Joker Movie, and The Ritual.

Books: the Harry Potter Series, and Project Hail Mary.

TV shows: Servant, Stranger Things, Mindhunter, and Big Bang Theory.

Podcasts:

(Jesse) The Secrets of Skin Walker Ranch, Last Podcast on the Left, Tin Foil Hat Club, Joe Rogan.

(Bree) Bailey Sarian Murder Mystery and Makeup Mondays, Dark History, Mile Higher, Kendall Rae, Mollie Westbrook, Thoughty2, Mr. Ballin

We love alternative music.


We started dating in 8th grade, after Jesse kissed Bree, while watching Forest Gump, and have been together since!


As long as we aren't already on a shoot, we try to go to as many street festivals as we can! We love the live music, art booths, and food trucks. We also are fond of traveling, but who isn't!


We hope this lets you get to know us a tad! It's always more fun when you feel like you know your photographers.

Testimonials

“Excellent, genuine, and fun to be around during a shoot. Excellent attitudes and great ideas. I love that they are always snapping pictures; letting life happen and getting the best shot. Neeley Photograpy provided over 7000 pictures from my wedding, close to 3000 for my engagement, and I’d easily say 2000 were taken in a short shoot with my daughter. I will always recommend them, and love spending the shoot with them. They know when it’s time to do business and bring their A game to each shoot.”
