Trevor & Sarah • She said YES!!!

This morning I had the opportunity to shoot my nephew Trevor and his girlfriend Sarah’s photographs. They initially set up a couple shoot. I then got a secret phone call from Trevor announcing his plans to propose.  It was overcast, cold and wet. Not ideal for family photos nor proposing. Well I am super happy to announce that she said yes. I’m extremely happy for you both and wish you years of continued happiness. Thank you for allowing me to be apart of you special moment.

Mucho gusto, me llamo Bret.

I’m a “Jack of all trades, Master of none” kind of guy. Well I suppose that all depends on who you ask. I have a long lasting love of all things art. I’m a musician, photographer, videographer, designer, editor and most importantly a father. I was born and raised in Saint Joseph, MO during the extremely hot summer of 1980.

bret-yagerAfter graduating from Vatterott College with my diploma in Computer Technology in 2001, I immediately moved to Minneapolis, MN to attend Music Tech College (now McNally School of Music). I earned two A.A.S. Degrees from Music Tech. The first being in Music Business and the second in Motion Imaging. While in Minneapolis I was able to work with a ton of talented people on a wide variety of projects.

In 2011, I moved back to Saint Joseph and picked up where I left off in the Twin Cities. I am still active in the local music scene with my band Burnstyles as well as occupying various local open mic nights with my blend of non-sense.
