Weddings by Hanel (pronounced like Chanel without a c) is a wedding photo & video studio creatively blending artistic photojournalism with beautiful portraiture. Their philosophy for photographing weddings is based on their belief that the most important thing about their job is telling your story as beautifully as the story itself. Everything else is secondary. Their 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. That's why they call themselves artists and storytellers.
With hundreds of weddings and elopements under our belts, Hanel and his team have been a part of weddings of all colors, sizes, and locations. Their destination weddings have taken them to some incredible locations, including Hawaii, Korea, and Aruba.
Weddings by Hanel offers photography and videography services that include:

Hanel did nothing but a fantastic job. He even took the time to get together with us a couple times before the wedding to get to know us personally and what we envision.
On the wedding day, he was very friendly with guests. In conjunction to that, he knew how to direct everyone in front of the camera without being too bossy (we had a bunch of portraits and a group photo of all the guests taken). It rained halfway through the reception but it didn't stop Hanel from creating a beautiful portrait of Sam and I underneath an umbrella in the midst of the thunderstorm.
After the wedding, Hanel was quick to send us edited copies. He even went out of his way to upload the photos for me on dropbox because I was out of town.
It's been almost 8 months and whenever I meet friends and family who have attended the wedding, they still talk about how beautiful the pictures turn out and how professional, friendly, and awesome Hanel was during the wedding day.
Thank you for making our special day memorable. We love the photos!!

We hired Hanel to photograph our wedding after seeing the beautiful photos he took at a friend of mine's wedding. My friends aren't the most comfortable people in front of the camera, just like us, so that really stood out to us. If he could make them look so natural and beautiful in photos, we figured he could do the same for us. And he definitely exceeded our expectations. He and his second photographer really made us feel comfortable even with their cameras pointed at us. They were so unobtrusive yet still knew how to get everyone together for the group photos. We are super happy with our choice and can't recommend him enough!Sent on 04/01/2019

Hanel Choi is not only a skilled photographer but a great person to work with. He is calm and professional and will not interfere with your day. His amazing portfolio should speak for itself. I highly recommend Hanel to photograph your wedding.
