Bobbi BrinkmanCEOBobbi Brinkman LLC

As a storytelling wedding photographer, Bobbi Brinkman has dedicated the past 40 years to her passion, capturing authentic moments for fabbo couples across the country. Now leaning into her other passion as a business and personal growth coach and industry speaker, she's committed to empowering ambitious wedding pros to leverage their unique strengths (what makes them fabbo) to build thriving businesses and fulfilling lives that align with their passions and values. Bobbi's mantra in business and life is rooted in the belief that we should "Be Fabbo" - using our purpose and gifts to serve others and lead with kindness and a heart-forward approach. Through her coaching program, "Motivated to Be Fabbo" and her "Be Fabbo Podcast", Bobbi's mission is always authentic, candid conversation with inspired motivation and actionable strategies to help creatives transform their businesses and lives and define success on their terms. Because you are doing what you love, it should bring you joy, profit, and purpose. Believing every wedding pro deserves a seat at the table for who they are and the fabbo they bring to it, Bobbi is also committed to community building and industry advocacy, currently serving on the NACE National Advocacy Committee. Proud paw-rent Bobbi and her wife Tina share space in their sassy Shorkiepoo Ellie Joy's world, counting endless zoomies poolside.
