    Simply the Best

    Tif and Justin shot our wedding October 2022. We cannot recommend Hot Metal Studios enough. She captured our love and details of our day better than we could have ever imagined. Tif's wedding style was very unique to us, capturing the perfect candid and genuine emotions throughout our day and we couldn't be happier. She is talented beyond measure and truly was so fun to work with. We just got our photos back and are blown away. Hire her! Thank you, Tif. -C+L

    Um... Vivian Maier? But does Weddings.

    Tif is actually an artist, who just happens to carry around a camera. Her photos are absolute stunners, each and every one of them, and she manages to capture all the critical stuff you want, as well as all the sh*t you never knew you needed. Don't look any further, particularly if you are someone who appreciates a truly unique eye. They don't make photographers like Tif every day. Also, her team kicks ass.

    Speechless

    I am a vendor and have worked with HMS a few times. I can honestly say these aren't just photographs that this team produces. It is feeling. It is emotions...chills and tears. You can literally FEEL everything they capture. I am obsessed with every photo I have received of weddings we have done together!

    Thank you for your eye, your camera and your expertise! You are AMAZING.

    Tif was so easy going and made us feel less awkward during our engagement and wedding photoshoots. She is a joy to work with!

    Picture Perfect!

    I really don't have the words to express how amazing Tif and Justin were on our big day. They captured all of the little details and the expansive love that was shared. I'm sharing some of my fav pics from the day, their work speaks for itself!

    Tiffany is the best! She is so fun to work with and her talent is incredible. She did engagement photos for my husband and my wedding photos this past September. She puts you at ease, makes you laugh, and captures the uniqueness in people. She even got my husband to stop fake smiling so he wouldn鈥檛 ruin the photos lol.

    Fresh take on traditional wedding

    Tiffany and Alyssa were amazing to work with for our wedding! We wanted to capture a fresh, modern perspective of our traditional Indian wedding and they went beyond expectations to capture our most meaningful moments. We are so grateful to have these memories!

    Tiffany and Alyssa at Hot Metal Studio were absolutely amazing. They honestly made the day so much fun. I was nervous about being photographed all day long and being really awkward, however, they made everyone so comfortable. We received a teaser image within a week and our full album back within a month. It's been almost 2 months, and each time I look at the photos, I find a new one that I fall in love with. They did such a fantastic job of truly capturing not only the events of the day but everyone's personalities. I would hire Hot metal Studio again and again!

    Tiffany and her assistants each have an amazing gift. Their eye for creativity and ability to make anyone feel at ease is incredible. We still look at our photos and swoon over every single shot. Not only amazing photographers, but remarkable people as well!

    Tiffany and Jonathan are amazing. They dont need these reviews as their work speaks for itself. They shot my wedding in November- my husband and i have been receiving compliments on our photographs ever since.
    Before the wedding, I was worried that my future husband and I might be too awkward in out photographs...that we would have fake smiles throughout the planned pictures. Tiffany and Jonathan had a way of making us laugh and making us feel completely comfortable throughout the entire day.
    Their work is breathtaking.
    They truly are the bee's knees.

    So I haven't had my wedding yet, however from our first sit down meeting Tiffany made my fianc茅 and I very comfortable. She brought samples of her work, they are incredible... I'm talking magazine photography. Hot Metal Studios has an efficient web site where you have your own account; you can make payments towards your bill, fill out forms about your special day, etc. One night I started filling out some information on the forms and I emailed Tiffany for an answer to a question late at night and she got back to me within the hour. So far my fianc茅 and I are pleased with their professionalism and promptness.

    Tiff is a literal wizard. I don't know how she does what she does, but I'm so glad that she and Jonathan will be shooting our wedding.

    Hot Metal Studio was AMAZING- our wedding photos turned out so beautifully; they sent us a zip drive with all of our photos and the ordering process was extremely easy. They took literally thousands of photos and were so incredibly nice- we definitely have recommended them to friends and family!
