Hey! I'm Bree Hulan, a born and raised San Diegan photographing out of my home city.
I’ve got a country and wanderlust spirit, and I’m not afraid to get a little dirt on my hands. Traveling and photographing people out in nature is my jam. I am especially in love with the ocean, warm light, the mountains, and running around in fields with my shoes off.
Fun facts about me:
- You can count on me wearing flip flops to most sessions.
- I love camping, surfing, riding my skateboard, hiking, yoga, and country line dancing!
- Jesus is the homie.
- This weird guy in the photo? That’s Gavin. We met freshman year of college and our love story is just getting started.
- I love talking about all things Earth + ethical/sustainable fashion, so hit me up if you do too!
- Wildflowers + cheese = favorite things ever
- Photography picks me up when I’m down and lets my creativity flow. Give me a pint of caramel/coffee/chocolate ice cream and let me edit photos, and I'm happy as can be!
- I can do a mean Miranda Sings impression.
My purpose is to stay true to the world and people I photograph. I want the real YOU and your relationships to shine in the photos we create. I want to facilitate and capture the incredible outpouring of joy that happens when you’re just being you with the ones you love! Those candid, fun, running/dancing, laughter-filled moments. Of course, I’ll give ya some posing guidance as well!
I believe in a reasonable price for real people. It’s my priority to delivery great quality AND quantity of images to my clients. I want to be flexible because everyone deserves beautiful photographs, so let’s make the most of it.
This will be an adventure, a friendly conversation, and a ton of laughing and chasing the sun together. Most likely, we will both come out of this with a new friend ;) If this sounds like something you're into, let's chat.
Because this matters.
Thank you for choosing to invest in yourself and your family, because photography is one of the most important things you can do. That's because it's about preserving memories!
My whole life, my mom hung my grandma's baby pictures, my great-grandma's wedding photos, and her dad's Army portrait in our hallway. These little pieces of paper in a frame mean a lot to us, and they stand the test of time when almost nothing else does.
Although photographs showcase great memories, there's so much more to it. Yes, you will get beautiful photos, but, it's supposed to be a fun and unique experience, too. Let's find something totally "you," whether that's climbing a mountain, wearing fun outfits, exploring a cute neighborhood, or dipping in the ocean. Let's personalize this shindig and create something you can be excited about forever!
How it came to be…
Since I first got my hands on a camera, I've absolutely loved creating memories for people and getting out of my comfort zone. There’s a reason why the first thing I grabbed when evacuating from a fire was a photo album. That’s why photography made sense for me. Capturing beauty made in God’s image is how I contribute to this world. Parallel33 Photography was born in San Diego, where the 33rd parallel crosses. The 33rd parallel also crosses in Israel, the Christian holy land. The number 3 and 33 hold Biblical significance (Jesus dying at age 33, the Trinity, 33 as connected to God's promises, numeric equivalent of "amen," you get the idea). I aspire to bring honor and glory to God through my art, so “Parallel33” stuck.
