Hannah is top tier! Thank you!

Hannah captured our elopement with so much enthusiasm and a humbling authenticity, that gave us the space to simply bask in this milestone in our love story. We were both drawn to her energy at hello and feel very blessed that our paths crossed. It鈥檚 funny how things align in life, because we actually got connected with Hannah because our original photographer cancelled two days before our wedding; luckily she was available!
We can say without hesitation, that we are beyond happy and grateful we had her instead. We have so much respect and admiration for Hannah - from here approach to her art, thoughtfulness, zeal and overall beautiful spirit!. She captured so many special details so beautifully - we will continue to look at our photos and smile bigger every time. Thank you for going above and beyond to help us capture and celebrate our love. You are a master of your art...*chef鈥檚 kiss*

Where do I even begin? Hannah was amazing to work with from start to finish. My now-husband is a photographer and put himself in charge of the photographer search. After looking through portfolio after portfolio, Hannah is the only photographer he wanted to work with. She has such a special ability to capture candid moments and turn them into monumental images. Her documentary style is what really sealed the deal for us. My husband and I are not into posing or staged photos so Hannah's aesthetic truly captured what we wanted. After the search for a photographer was over, Hannah was so unbelievably accommodating and easy to work with leading up to the wedding. When wedding day finally arrived, Hannah was such a joy! In addition to capturing the best moments of the night, she was fun to hang out with- she fit right in with our crazy friends and family! And last, but certainly not least, the photos she captured were incredible. We laughed, cried and everything in between when viewing them for the first time. Our wedding day was such a whirlwind and went by so quickly, it was easy to forget a lot of the moments (okay.. okay... that might have been the fault of a few too many margaritas...) but Hannah's photos are there to help me remember and they are beautiful to boot!

Hannah is simply the best in every way and truly a master in her field. She made us feel 100% comfortable during our engagement photo session, and she captured the most special moments at our wedding without us even being aware she was watching. She takes the time to edit each photograph individually and it shows in her work. The final product exceeded our expectations, and it was absolutely lovely being around her. Her positive energy is infectious, and her talent is undeniable. She is one of a kind, and I would recommend her to anyone with a love for documentary style photography in a heartbeat!
