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 part of 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 under their 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- The Gold Standard
We feel so fortunate that Hanel and his team were part of our wedding day. Professionally, Hanel goes above and beyond. Communications leading up to our wedding were timely and very helpful. We were one of those couples that didn’t have a ton of direction but Hanel always seemed to be one step ahead. His team showed up impeccably dressed (straight out of Vogue!) and seamlessly blended in, capturing moments for almost 8 hours. Creatively, Hanel has an eye for weddings that is few and far between. He is constantly ideating and thinking of different poses, and does a great job not only executing but making those participating feel comfortable. We were blown away by the final product, which was an album consisting of both candid and staged moments that perfectly captured our wedding. Looking back, hiring Hanel was one of the best decisions we made going into our wedding. We cannot recommend him enough – he is beyond talented and would not be surprised if he starts to book up seasons in advance. Thank you Hanel and team!Sent on 02/20/2020

Thank You Hanel
Wedding 9/28/19:Sent on 11/24/2019
We first worked with Hanel for an engagement shoot and quickly discovered Hanel's ability to make us feel always at ease and relaxed during our shots with his professional and cheerful personality. He always knew exactly how to direct us before each picture down to each little detail and did so with a down-to-earth and respectful attitude. Working with Hanel during the photos felt like a perfect fit, and when we saw the finished photos, we immediately knew that he would be our guy for our wedding day.
He has a great ability to understand our personal preferences and to capture those elements in any surrounding. His knowledge of lighting and artistic elements are evident in the final product and you know that you will be getting unique and professional results.
We just received our wedding day photos and were blown away by how great they are. It will be a challenge to pick the few photos we want to include in our album!
We found Hanel through family friends and we will surely recommend him to all our friends and family.
Thank you Hanel for some amazing photos and for going above and beyond our expectations!

Excellent and professional videographers
Hanel and his team were professional, experienced, and great to work with. We used their videography services for our wedding in October 2019 and are very pleased with the results. Adam, our videographer for the day, went above and beyond to capture footage from multiple angles. Hanel put together a lovely highlight reel that really captured the joy of the day. Throughout the process, Hanel was easy to get in touch with, made sure everything was discussed in advance so the actual day went smoothly, and followed up at appropriate times. We got a package that included full footage from both the ceremony and the reception, and we are looking forward to revisiting our wedding day for many years to come! I would highly recommend Weddings by Hanel for your wedding videography (and photography) needs!Sent on 02/21/2020
