Greetings

"Flip through Brad's portfolio and that elegant, old-world sensibility is evident in every frame..."

Hi, welcome, and thank you for your interest in my work.  My name is Brad Burckel.  I am a husband, father, and photographer.  I have been married for 10 years, and my lovely wife and I have 4 beautiful children.  I love learning languages, the mountains, traveling to Europe, old film cameras, college football and oyster po-boys.

Photography is a passion of mine, and I consider it an honor and a privilege to capture your most important moments.  I strive to provide my couples with the best collection possible - one that you and your loved ones will treasure forever.  

I chose the name Du Castel to honor my Grandmother, and pay homage to the beauty and elegance of her French heritage. 

"I am absolutely bursting with joy looking through the photos.....
We will treasure these forever!" - Lucy

I have traveled extensively in the United States and Europe, photographing love stories across the globe. This immersion in beauty and tradition has influenced my photography style and created an eye for elegance.
