Bre Thurston is an award-winning photographer, educator, speaker, and author. She began her professional photography journey in 2010 after working five years in publishing. She quickly realised that she had as much of a passion for teaching as she did shooting and has since taught at several successful conferences and events, as well as online workshops. She is the co-owner of Blair & Thurston Retreats and travels the world educating women alongside Elena Sanchez Blair.
Bre believes in joyful storytelling and found her inspiration after losing her father to cancer early on in her career. That loss taught Bre the importance of documenting connection, relationships, and the beautiful moments in life. She uses her passion to fuel laughter and emotion with every single person who steps in front of her camera. Her brand of photography is fun, laid back, joyful, and authentic.
Bre’s work has been featured in People, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Professional Photographer Magazine, E!, Click Magazine, The San Francisco Chronicle, Seattle Bride Magazine, Dear Photographer Magazine, and several online blogs/platforms including The Huffington Post, The Knot, Style Me Pretty, Lookslikefilm, Buzzfeed, Grace Ormond, and Grey Likes Weddings.
