About

Hi, I'm Hanel, a wedding photographer & filmmaker based in NY. My philosophy for photographing weddings is based on my belief that the most important part of my job is to tell your story. Everything else is secondary. My mission is to deliver photos and films that'll let you relieve the moments you'll remember and show you all of the moments you won't be able to be a part of due to the busy schedule of the day.

Experience
With hundreds of weddings under our belts, my team and I have been a part of weddings of all colors, sizes, and locations. My destination weddings have taken us to some incredible locations, including Hawaii, Korea, and Aruba.

Hanel answered all of my questions and emails in a timely manner and really took the time to understand the vision we had for our engagement photos and wedding photos/films. During all of the stress of wedding planning this was the least of my worries! We cannot say enough about Hanel and his team and their commitment to their craft and delivering the most fantastic, beautiful and high quality photos and films!!

Professional, accommodating - the BEST experience!

Working with Hanel and his team was one of the best decisions we made! We were a little nervous about the photo / video aspect because we feel like we never know what how to pose or didn't want to be awkward but Hanel made us feel comfortable from the moment we met. The photos and videos from our wedding are more beautiful than we could have imagined and exceed our expectations. They truly look like they belong in a magazine. Hanel is such a professional, gives off such a calming energy, and was able to pivot and accommodate us without a second thought when things changed or popped up. I cannot recommend working with Hanel enough.

Blissful Wedding Photography and Videography with mastermind editing

Having Hanel's team to be our storyteller is one of the best things on our big day. We love their delightful intimate style and we love that you can still be yourself in front of their cameras. Their attention to details, their expertise of utilizing the lighting, and most importantly, their personality really helped to ease all the anxiety and just to focus on enjoying the moment. We never imagined things could all happen on one of the biggest days in your life, i.e. when you realized the tuxedo buttons were missing a few mins before the guests arrival, etc. Mike and Adam are just like someone you've known for a long time, they calm us down and led us into our comfort mode quickly. The day passed by so quickly, we are very thankful that they have great eyes to capture the touching and beautiful perspective that we missed - immersing us with beautiful sounds and big smiles. Highly recommend getting the package with videography! His work captured our hearts, and allows us to relive the moment as if it happened yesterday!
