Who is Beauty Before Me?


Meet Brianna Swank


Hi! My name is Brianna Swank, known as Noelle to some, and I am the founder and photographer of Beauty Before Me Photography. I am from Terre Haute, Indiana and have called my little town just north of Nashville home since 2015. I am a Nashville and surrounding area based photographer and I absolutely love the area. Nashville may not be my home town but the city has such an amazing vibe, great diversity, and modern beauty that it’s hard not to fall in love. Photography has been my passion for years and I just love chasing around all the beautiful souls that decide to step in front of my camera. I take pride in giving my clients memories and images that they will cherish and love forever. When I’m not working, I like to spend my time listening to music, chilling in my bed, watching YouTube, or hanging out with my boyfriend.

Our Beginnings

I could not have told you that photography would become something that I was so passionate about but I could not be more grateful that it has.

I started my photography journey as a bored homeschool student that really had nothing better to do than wander around her backyard. It began with flowers and acorns. You could find my moving things around and trying to get what I considered the best photo possible. Then we moved states and that fascination continued. I got my first camera at 15 years old and my passion has only grown since. I slowly moved on to doing portraits, starting by taking engagement photos for my aunt and uncle and then doing their maternity pictures. In between, I used my best friend as my guinea pig over and over. You can tell by the images of her alone just how much I have grown in my skills. Photography has become my life and I consider myself blessed to have had the opportunities I have and the chances that I have been given.

I will always be thankful for everyone that has ever taken a chance on Beauty Before Me Photography.
