I can't say enough about the power photographer couple, Joe and Monique Hummel. Both are an absolute pleasure to work with and go above and beyond my expectations of a phenomenal photographer. Not only did they help us pick out our engagement shoot site (we couldn't make up our minds) but they scouted out scenery options on their own time to ensure they knew where the best locations were. The day of the shoot was so much fun. Joe and Monique made us feel so comfortable and Joe's eye for creativity is unmatched. He saw spots that looked ordinary and took extraordinary photos. Our photos are work of arts and I would absolutely recommend Hummel Photography to anyone looking for a high quality experience with breath taking photos to commemorate one of the most important days of your life.Sent on 10/13/2017

From the moment I submitted an inquiry Joseph Hummel photography has been excellent and different from other vendors due to their exceptional customer service. From setting up consultation sessions, to determining locations and carrying out unique visions everything exceeded our expectations. It is months later and I am still receiving the most heartfelt comments on our photos taken by Joesph and Monique. If you want photos you will cherish forever this is the team to make your dreams come true !!Sent on 10/14/2017

My Husband and I first met Joe and Monique December 2016. We happened to be in Lake Tahoe for our wedding tasting and they scheduled us in after. The moment we met Joe and Monique we felt this instant connection. We knew we were in the process of making life long friends. After our meeting we continued to communicate through email/phone to schedule our engagement shoot. We had the best time with our engagement shoot. Joe and Monique took all the hassle out by hiring the hair and make up artists (which they only hire the best) and securing the shooting locations. It made it so convenient for us since we live out of state. This actually also helped me (the Bride) hire my hair and make up artist for my wedding day. Once we got our engagement photos back we were completely blown away. Joe and Monique captured some of the most beautiful pictures, they are jaw dropping. Both of our families couldn't believe how amazing they came out. It really got everyone excited for the wedding photos. We couldn't wait to see what they were going to capture. Our wedding took place in July 2017. Joe and Monique made the day so much fun. They literally had to wrangle cats with our huge families, and both of them remained very calm and professional during those stressful moments. We also did the bridal shoot about a month after our wedding and they again went over and beyond coordinating it all. We are beyond happy with the way our photos turned out! We look forward to working with them every year and see what beauty they will capture! They are not just our wedding photographers, they are now our good friends!Sent on 05/01/2018

Joseph and his wife were awsome!! They went way beyond just being a photographer at our sons wedding in Lake Tahoe. We cherish the memories and the photos were Fantastic. Absolutely recommend them.Sent on 07/11/2017

My wife and I could not of found a more perfect photographer than Joseph Hummel. From the moment we made our initial contact, to wedding day and now our wedding album, his customer service and attention to detail are unsurpassed.Sent on 12/28/2017
It is til this very moment that we are able to look at the prints displayed in our home and instantly be back on our wedding day.
Joseph is not a person who simply captures photos, he captures moments which we will cherish forever. Beyond that, he was so much more than our photographer, but also a liason between us and our vendors. Joseph provided incredible reccomendations, and worked tiredlessly to help my wife and I (from Austin, Texas) truly create the wedding of our dreams....and we have the pictures to prove it.

Joseph and his wife Monique are amazing people and photographers. Weddings are stressful enough but with us planning ours from out of state, Joseph went above and beyond to assist. His recommendations were spot on from the DJ to the hair and make-up. We spoke to the two of them multiple times and had the opportunity to get to know them prior to our engagement pictures. Once the wedding came around they felt like guests, which made it so easy to be ourselves around him. We are so beyond happy to have his work hanging on our walls at home and to be able to call the Hummel’s our friends.Sent on 12/28/2017

Joe took group pictures of four rambunctious children ages 8, 4, 3 and 1 1/2. He managed to get MANY stunning pictures, some posed and some candid! I was very impressed because the kids were wild to say the least. There are so many great shots to choose from. Narrowing down to a few favorites will be a challenge. Not a bad predicament!Sent on 12/26/2016

Working with Joe and Monique has been a pleasure. We had engagement pictures done in San Francisco and Tahoe, and our wedding at Winter's Creek Lodge (Mt Rose). They all turned out truly amazing. We got the posed pretty pictures that everyone wants and needs, but also the kind of pictures that you would hang on your wall, even if they didn't have us in them.Sent on 12/22/2016
It's easy to relax and get those genuine pictures with Joe and Monique. The amount of work and thought they put into your wedding is above and beyond. Scouting locations before hand, doing a goofy nerdy photo shop for one of your pictures (I honestly thought we'd get turned down, but Joe was excited to do it), and top notch professionalism.
You won't go wrong with this fantastic couple covering your most precious moments.
Mandie · Married on 10/23/2016
Before hiring Joe for our wedding on October 23rd, 2016, I had worked with him at a wedding the previous year. I was lucky in being able to see him work from a wedding coordinator's point of view before I saw him from a bride's point of view. The minute I saw his photos in 2015 (just on his camera's display screen) I knew that I wanted Joe and Monique to photograph my future wedding (and I wasn't even engaged yet!).Sent on 12/21/2016
Flash forward to February 2016, I was finally engaged and my first choice was Joe. The absolute selling point was how amazingly well Joe and Monique got along with my now husband and I. Hiring Joseph Hummel Photography was, by far, one of the EASIEST decisions while planning our wedding.
We chose quality over quantity and it worked out in our favor. He is worth every penny, and made both of us feel extremely comfortable and like we were his only clients. Not once did he use the words "I'm too busy at the moment" which I have heard several other photographers say.
Joe and Monique went ABOVE and BEYOND all of our expectations of wedding photographers and that didn't change at any point leading up to and during the wedding.
We got married at Winter's Creek at Mt. Rose, and Joe took the natural beauty of the lodge and the view into consideration with every photo that he took.
I would hire him again and again and I will suggest him to my future clients.

From our first meeting, we knew Joe was the photographer for us. At the end of the meeting it felt like we'd been friends for years and my bride to be felt the same way. That feeling paid off again and again as Joe delivered an extremely high quality product from amazing engagement photos, to a wonderful guestbook, to perfect photos from our wedding day. Joe was able to capture such wonderful candid photos, it never felt like we were being photographed. The engagement photos were OUTSTANDING. We've gotten so many comments from friends and family on how great the photos turned out. Friends that have been a part of many weddings commented on how they thought we got the “best photographer in the biz.” Not only did he get along really well with all the groomsmen and bridesmaids, he made everyone feel comfortable and delivered outstanding photos. He even helped us catch our running away dogs during the engagement photos! His turnaround time was insanely fast and we had our photos as soon as we got back from the honeymoon! He also put together a touching slide show to be played at dinner with photos from getting ready, the ceremony and the cocktail hour! We felt extremely comfortable with him throughout the entire process. I have worked as a wedding photographer assistant with a friend of mine and I know first hand how much work this is. Joe and Monique work very hard to make sure you have the perfect day and have great photos. We could not have asked for more. Even when my mother has contacted him with help ordering photos he was so nice and extremely helpful. I cannot say enough good things about our experience. Joe and his wife are amazing people and it was an absolute pleasure to get to know them throughout the entire process. We look forward to working with them again in the future.Sent on 10/30/2016

We got married at Taber Ranch on August 20th, 2016. Joseph and Monique are amazing. They were able to become a part of the big day. I relied so much the day of the wedding in the both of them and they were always there. Monique always made sure my hair and make up was ok and that I always had water because it was so hot. Joe was very good and finding awesome shots and reminding me how to stand so that I look great in the photos. These two work so well together it's amazing. I loved every moment of doing our photos and was so excited to see them. I love every single photo that they each took so much! They made my day so memorable, fun and enjoyable.Sent on 09/13/2016
I was so glad that they took photos that I would have never thought of taking. I also loved when I told him an idea that I had not only did he make it happen, he made it better then I had imagined it.
I would highly recommend Joseph Hummel to everyone I know. We got the amazing gift of having him do both our engagement photos and our wedding. My favorite photos of my husband and myself are ones that he took. He makes you laugh and feel comfortable. I cannot wait to find reasons to do more photo sessions with him.

We got married at Taber Ranch on August 20th, 2016. Joe and Monique are friendly and fun. They become part of the party. Joe took our ideas and put a creative spin on it which showed in our photos. I would highly recommend them.Sent on 10/25/2016

If you want a photographer that will go above and beyond every step of the way to make your wedding the best day ever - you've found that in Joe Hummel and his wife Monique. These two very special and talented people truly care about you and your day. They care so much, in fact, that they met with us several times before the wedding - once to walk our wedding site at Sugarbowl Ski Resort and meet with the wedding coordinator, once to do a "warm up" photography session in our home town, and once to do a family photo session with my daughters. They truly went the extra mile to make sure we felt really comfortable and knew them well before the wedding. Joe and Monique really "got" us because they took the time to get to know us. They managed to get so many beautiful photos without us even realizing it - so the photography did not feel like a chore. I just received the wedding album and it is perfect! I will definitely call Joe and Monique for any pictures we take in the future and I would highly recommend them to anyone for a perfect wedding day or for any type of photos.Sent on 11/06/2016
Tommy · Married on 07/16/2016
Joe and Monique were fantastic! They braved one of the giant storms last winter to meet with us and the coordinator at Sugar Bowl, then met with us later that same day at The Ritz Northstar for a session during that same storm. They made a special trip down to the Bay Area for a session on our turf, and offered so much great advice on logistics and how to actually pull off a great wedding that I was truly impressed. They were so calm and friendly yet completely professional. During the ceremony and reception I barely noticed they were lurking about, but they managed to get some great shots. I would highly recommend Joe & Monique for your best day ever!Sent on 11/06/2016
Mariam · Married on 03/12/2016
Joseph did our engagement pictures and I am beyond happy with the results. He listened to everything we wanted and made it happen. He is incredibly professional and easy to work with. My fiance and I are both very shy and awkward in front of the camera and he made us feel very at ease and captured some amazing shots when we weren't even paying attention. He was able to fit us in last minute for our engagement shoot because I wanted to get the fall leaves in our pictures before they were all gone and those pictures came out exactly how I wanted them to. I've recommended him to all of my friends and family.Sent on 02/15/2016
I cannot wait to see how our wedding pictures come out later this year, so glad I found Joe!
Anthony · Married on 08/22/2015
Joseph went above and beyond any expectations we had for our wedding photographer. He went over every aspect of the day with us before hand so that we didn't have to worry about anything photography related on our wedding day. He was very respectful to the attendees during the ceremony, and you didn't even know he was there. The photographs came out stunning, he has an eye that unmatched and can use lighting in ways that make every photo unique.Sent on 02/18/2016

If I could give Joseph Hummel photography a higher rating I would! I am not a natural when it comes to posing for pictures....but Joseph just makes you feel so comfortable and gives the best pointers & tips to make you look your best!! He really was a pleasure to work with, if I had to do it again I'd pay twice as much just to get him because the quality of his work is so amazing and worth every penny!!Sent on 12/29/2014

Joseph's photography and energy are both amazing. We could definitely see his creativity during the shoots and in the proofs. He organizes large groups easily and definitely enjoys working with people! I love the way he uses lighting to make the final shots glow!Sent on 12/05/2014

My gratitude could not be expressed more for Joe Hummel and all that he did for my wedding. He was accommodating and very understanding of the days busy schedule, and was able to capture every moment of our beautiful wedding day. I couldn't be more pleased with the photos that me and my husband will have to cherish for many years to come.Sent on 12/23/2014

I cannot speak highly enough of Joseph, the photos were everything I wanted. He knew how to capture the small details that I spent so much time on, it made our pictures feel really intimate and like we were right back at the wedding when we saw them. A lot of the photographers that we spoke with were very transactional, we felt like we were just a number and $$ to them. Joseph took the time to get to know us and what we wanted - not just "oh yeah, I do this for all the weddings". He understood the style we were going for and I love love love the finished product. Also, Joseph was willing to work with us and didnt try to sell us things we didnt want. All in all, I am so so happy!!Sent on 05/13/2015
Joseph Hummel Photography's reply:I am extremely glad you guys chose me and I hope every moment will be cherished forever.

I can't say enough good stuff about my experience with Joe Hummel. He did our engagement pics in Tahoe last summer. Not only was it a super fun evening, but nature cooperated and gave us the most amazing sunset! He was very professional, and the end result was beautiful photos that we will always love!Sent on 12/05/2014
Joseph Hummel Photography's reply:It was so fun to do that for you both. Thanks for the kind words!
Jessica · Married on 06/07/2014
Joseph Hummel was the best photographer we could have asked for! He was extremely professional through our entire process in working with him. We always had immediate answers to our questions. He worked with whatever we wanted and had creative ideas when we didn't know what we wanted. We had some of our pictures back within a few days and the rest back within a few weeks! And about the actual photos... There is not a single photo we don't love and there's not a moment he missed. Our pictures were fantastic!Sent on 12/08/2014
Joseph Hummel Photography's reply:Looking back on that day will always be with fondest memories! It was a pleasure working with you both and getting to know all your dear friends and family.

BEWARE-run the risk of a last minute cancel
We hired Joseph over 3 months ago. We discussed in length our vision, filled out the in depth questionnaire, and gave a deposit. Joseph said he and his wife were available for our wedding date. Fast forward to 3 months later, he claims he’s now unavailable and refunded our deposit without the courtesy of a conversation. Beware, he is super unreliable and you run the risk of him canceling to obtain a better financial opportunity.Sent on 11/03/2019
