Hiring Hanna was the single best choice we made for our wedding. Not only is she insanely talented, but she brings a positive, calming energy with her that sets everyone at ease to be themselves. Having Hanna with us was like having my super cool friend hang out with us and document our wedding. When I look at our images, I am instantly drawn back into the joy and love we felt on our wedding day. We have received so many compliments on not only the quality and style of the images, but the depth of emotion that was captured. Not only is she talented and fun, she was so great to work with. She is quick to communicate and respond, shared great ideas to help us pick the best vendors and locations, and was so flexible and understanding as we navigated re-planning our wedding three times due to COVID. Her enthusiasm added to the fun of planning our wedding and her expertise helped alleviate my stress. Hanna shot our engagement session and our wedding, but we can’t wait to work with her again in the future to capture more important moments for our family! If you’re looking for the most striking images and want to have fun while taking them, you’ve found your photographer!
I’ve worked with Hanna in a fashion sense and loved her style so there was no question or doubt in my mind who I wanted to shoot my wedding. Hanna not only did our wedding photography but our engagement photos as well and time and time again that woman delivered greatness. I asked for something more art forward and less cookie cutter and that’s what I got. She brought us vogue vanity fair realness and we are SO in love with the final product from both engagement and wedding photos. All of my bridesmaids loved working with Hanna and her team as well as the groomsmen and when you’ve got groomsmen talking about how they love the photographer then you know you’ve struck gold! They went above and beyond to give us photos we’ll cherish forever and the quality is next level. Now we are expecting and I’m already planning my maternity shoot with Hanna because I’ll never work with anyone else. If you want quality, style, professionalism, comfort and one of a kind work then look no further because Hanna brings it all.
Choosing Hanna to capture our wedding day was one of the best decisions we could have made. I can not recommend her enough. Hanna has taken an in home session for us, our engagement photos and most recently, our wedding photos. Each time Hanna made us feel incredibly comfortable in front of her lens. We are always blown away with her ability to capture raw emotion and her attention to detail. The number of compliments we have received on her photos are endless. Her photos are timeless, romantic, emotional, fun and everything in between. Not only is Hanna exceptional at what she does, but she is an absolute joy to work with. Hanna guided us, and our friends and family through our wedding day seamlessly. I told her several times throughout the day that it would not have gone as smoothly without her there. Hanna went above and beyond to make our day and our photos turn out beautifully. I can not thank her enough.
Hanna was our photographer for our wedding this past year and we cannot recommend her enough. Right from the beginning, we were so impressed with not only how knowledgeable she was, but also how much experience she has. For both our engagement photos and wedding photos, we threw around some location ideas, and in return she sent us various photos of shoots she's done with previous couples. Having those reference pictures gave us so many great ideas on location, setting, time of day, etc., and helped our vision come to life.
While we ended up having a small Covid-sized wedding, all of our guests at some point during the day complimented us on how wonderful Hanna was. We were so impressed with her attention to so many little details that we never would have thought of, such as tucking a suit jacket behind your hand or taking a hair tie off so that it doesn't indent your wrist - all of these little things helped our pictures turn out perfectly. It was very obvious that she has a natural eye for photography.
Hanna truly made us feel so incredibly comfortable throughout the whole process. She was so personable and lovely to work with. It felt like she was one of our friends who was there not only to capture the moments, but also to celebrate with us. We would recommend her to anyone and everyone, and without a doubt use her for any of our future photography needs.
Working with Hanna is like having your super cool, fabulously talented friend photograph your wedding. I first found Hanna’s work on Instagram because I loved her style and reached out as soon as we had a date locked in. Right from the start, Hanna was responsive, knowledgeable, and kind. She was the only conversation we had with a photographer because after speaking with her, I knew immediately she would be a great fit. You can look at her stunning work to see how wonderful her photos are, but what really sets Hanna apart is her client service and compassion. Like so many couples, our wedding was impacted by COVID-19 and Hanna was proactive and flexible with our changing plans. At the end of our working with Hanna she will have photographed our engagement shoot, our elopement and our reception that will now happen in 2021 - but I couldn’t wait another year to write this review. I’m already thinking of ways we can work with her again, because I love her photography so much. One of my best friends is also using Hanna for her wedding, so I can honestly say I’d recommend her to my best friend (because I have!) If you work with Hanna, I’m sure you will love her as much as we do.
Words cannot begin to express how satisfied we were walking away from our time spent with Hanna! We found her through a mutual friend and being our first shoot together as a couple, we came in with few expectations and an open mind. Not only did Hanna cultivate an incredibly fun (seriously, our cheeks were sore from laughter), inclusive, and comfortable environment- but her direct and adaptable demeanor left us assured we were in the hands of a professional. Only a couple of days after our shoot, we were sent a set of preview photos and we were immediately in love, making it a gruelingly painful wait for the rest. Hanna has an effortless way of documenting the small and intimate details, and the authenticity reflected in her photos is truly unlike any other. We already can't wait for our future shoots with her, and the moments she captured will be cherished by us forever!
5 stars isn't enough to rate Hanna, she truly went above and beyond to not only make us comfortable but make us forget we were doing a photo shoot. The photos she captured look so completely natural that a year later I am still in awe looking at the photos of the incredible work she did. Hanna is such a hard-working lady who radiates nothing but positivity, she is such a delight to be around and communicate with. She truly loves what she does and it shows in every photo. Put your confidence in Hanna and she'll give you more than you could have ever imagined
