THE BEST wedding photographer you could choose!!
Working with William was such a delight and he definitely delivered in his photography!! He really has a natural eye for catching the BEST moments in the most picturesque way. He is very creative and is very good at locating the perfect background. William is very friendly and made our photography experience so comfortable--especially considering how awkward my fiance (now husband) and I were around the camera. He was never pushy nor did he make us pose in tacky ways--everything he did was so organic and he really did catch us in our most natural states. I, for one, am not one to take posed pictures, but really wanted something that captured the true essence of my husband and I---which William definitely did with his photos. The package we purchased included an engagement photo session. We had to reschedule about 3 times because it kept raining on the date we chose; however, William was SO easy to work with and really accommodated to our scheduling needs. Even though we chose to take our pictures during peak-wedding season, he did all he could to make it work. And it did! William had recommended a local park for us to take pictures and we really had a fun time with him! We got down and dirty, getting our feet wet and climbing tree stumps (never forced by William, but he made sure everything we did was within our comfort zone). The pictures came out AMAZING. All our friends and family were saying how the pictures were so creative and different than normal engagement photos.Sent on 05/12/2019
Moving onto the wedding day... As with most weddings, there were some timing hiccups in the morning, where we ended up running behind schedule. Despite all of this, William and his co-photographer, Brian, were so understanding and never once made us feel pressured. They came early, and they stayed until the end of the night.. which was definitely not expected of them, but they really wanted to capture the emotions of the entire night. They went out of their way to deliver the best quality photos for our wedding day, even getting down on the ground to get the best angle of us. During our wedding photo shoot, we had such a great time with Will and Brian--full of laughter and genuine happiness. Will & Brian are seriously the best team! At the end of the night, they even managed to pull us out so we could take a really beautiful picture outdoors, and that ended up being one of our favorite pictures.
Also, let me just tell you how quick Will's turnaround time for photos is. So our engagement photos were back to us within a week, and our wedding photos (over 1,000 photos) were back to us in exactly 9 days...all edited and perfected. Will is not only skilled at what he does, but he's so efficient and you can tell he puts 100% into all he does.
We also went with their photobooth service, which was great!! They had fun props and the photo quality was great. We even got to select the design of the photo strip.
All in all, we are SO glad we went with William Hendra Photography. If I had to do my wedding all over again, I'd go with William for photography in a heart beat!! Nowadays, it's so hard to find a photographer who actually cares, but with William, he is provides great photos and services. I cannot rave enough about how much we loved our photos and how he caught all of those special moments. The emotions were so clear in the pictures. My sister and parents all agreed that they really liked William's photos and even admitted that they turned out better than my sister's wedding photos (which was extremely overpriced for the service they provided). 20 out of 10 I recommend William Hendra Photography.

We loved working with William on our wedding day and engagement photo shoot! He captured every little moment of our wedding perfectly. William gave us advice along the way on poses, angles, timing of events, etc. but was also flexible in our photography requests. Most importantly, we had so much FUN along the way and couldn't have asked for a better photographer! Recommend 5/5Sent on 07/13/2019

Beautiful photos, easy-going process
Will and his team were truly a "find" in our wedding vendor search. His beautiful, rich photos speak for themselves, but on a personal level, Will was so easy to work with and down to earth, making the photo-taking process easy and comfortable. He braved 40 degree beach weather with us for our engagement session, which we loved, and he and his assistant absolutely delivered on our wedding day despite the weather being not so cooperative. The result is timeless, rich photographs that serve as an authentic memory of our day, as opposed to overly posed, fabricated, over-edited images. We really couldn't ask for more. Thank you!Sent on 01/10/2019

Beautiful Candid Photos
Mr. Hendra was very pleasant to work with and took both beautiful portrait and candid photos of my husband and I, our families, and all of our guests! I highly recommend him.Sent on 01/21/2019

Captured our memories perfectly!
We had the privilege of having William capture our wedding day photos! He's so talented and professional. He quietly captured all of our moments as it was happening and was able to recreate our memories in the photos he caught. We are always moving around (so we thought it would be hard to take pictures!), but William did such a great job to capture the exact moments. Photo booth was also a great add-on!Sent on 11/14/2018
William.. THANK YOU SOOOO INCREDIBLY MUCH. I cannot stop starring and going through all of these photos. They are amazing!! Thank you so much for capturing our day for us.. these pictures represent us perfectly! We're literally going through each and laughing and smiling through all of them. Thank you again!!

Finding a photographer for our fall 2018 wedding was not the easiest part of the wedding planning process for me. Luckily I eventually came across William’s profile and instantly fell in love with his work and his ability to bring each couple’s personalities into his photos. After speaking with William over an initial call he seemed extremely knowledge and flexible to work with. He was an easy choice to hire for our 9/22 wedding.Sent on 10/17/2018
My husband worked with William twice, the first being our spring engagement shoot in Central Park NY. We had such a great time exploring Central Park with William and particularly loved his suggestion that we rent a row boat to capture additional pictures during sunset- these pictures came out amazing!
We worked with William a second time during our September wedding. William was again wonderful to work with and came armed with locations and pose ideas for our portrait pictures. William was even extremely patient and willing to have us set up time slots to take pictures with our extended family -this is not something most photographers I spoke with would agree to do, but William was supportive and willing to make this happen for us. We received all of our pictures back in less than a month and were blown away by William’s work and by all of the special moments he captured from our wedding day.
William is a joy to work with and will not disappoint!

Awesome! Must Use!
William was hands down the best wedding photographer we could have asked for. From the beginning he was super helpful answering any and all questions we had including album examples as well as all of his wedding work. Fast to respond and very detailed. He also had a great sense of humor which helped during the engagement and wedding party shots. Engagement session was smooth even after a rescheduling due to snow. Wedding day was perfect and he made sure he got every shot we asked for. Working with him to create the album was a breeze and that turned out phenomenal! William is also very affordable and willing to work with your price point. We would recommend William to any couple getting married as he was the best!!Sent on 03/24/2019

I feel like I have started to write this review five times but cannot figure out where to begin-- I had spent hours and hours researching photographers, and we are SO grateful we found William. We would not change anything. Working with William and his assistant that day was so easy and wonderful. I was a bit anxious about the fact we hadn't met in person prior to the day, though we had a few video calls, but when we met, I felt like I had met him. He is so easy to work with, so polite, so detail-oriented. The two arrived early, were utmost professionals, and everyone in the wedding party loved them. Even the detail of him clasping my shoes before taking a photo of them (this being before I had them on my feet of course), so they looked more put together, stood out to me. William is perceptive and went with the flow of the day so well. We got married in a Catholic church, and we never had to worry about where they were during the ceremony. Having them both, they were able to capture bride and groom at the same time, as well as the congregation. During the reception, they did such a great job of capturing not only the two of us, but everyone on the dance floor, as well as laughter and smiles at the tables. The photos came back to us in under three weeks-- we couldn't believe it, especially during September, a very busy wedding month. The results blew us away. Tears in our eyes as we relived the happy day and were overwhelmed with joy at the photos. Just incredible how he captured moments, reactions, the light--in both daytime and nighttime as well as in a dark church-- I could go on and on!Sent on 09/23/2018

My husband and I hired William for our 9/2/2018 wedding. His package also included an engagement photo session. For our engagement photos, William gave us a lot of suggestions in choosing a location and was very flexible when it came to scheduling. My husband and I are not great in front of the camera, but William is so easy-going and made us feel comfortable. Between our initial contact and wedding day, he was very quick to respond when emailing which was greatly appreciated during that stressful time. On our wedding day, William and his second photographer Daniel were great- they took all of the pictures we asked for and came up with some creative shots that we wouldn’t have thought of. William got the pictures to us within a couple of weeks and they looked beautiful. We highly recommend William!Sent on 10/14/2018

Will was more than amazing to work with. My now husband and I eloped, and I (last minute) asked every photographer I could find to capture our special day. Will responded very quickly and happened to be available the day I required his services. He's been incredible to work with throughout the entire process and sent us our photos in a very timely matter. I HIGHLY recommend him. His work is beautiful.
Courtney · Married on 08/23/2018
William was the one of the many highlights of our day. My husband and I hit it off with William via FaceTime. We loved everything about his vision and photojournalistic style. From the first moment he walked in my hotel room while I was getting ready, I felt an ease. William made the day go by so smoothly for me. He never asked me to stop and pose for him- he simply captured moments. Looking back at my photos now, I feel like I relieve those moments- from the ceremony, to the guests mingling, to the dancing, to my ABSOLUTE fairytale night picture. William was 100% worth every penny! He will not disappoint you and his passion shows in every photo he takes!Sent on 09/22/2018

William Hendra Photography is absolutely amazing! William is extremely professional and has such an artistic eye. Our engagement photos came out absolutely amazing so we were very excited for the wedding day photos. Words cannot describe how beautiful and perfect the photos from the wedding day turned out. William really understands what the client wants, which was very important to us. Also, we still can't believe the turn around time for the wedding day photos, just one week after the wedding day! Overall, we would highly recommend William to capture sincere and candid moments from a day that will always be remembered. Thank you William!Sent on 08/31/2018
Kimberly · Married on 07/20/2018
William does an incredible job capturing the big day! He adds a personal feel, and doesn't add to the stressful "production" of the day. His photos are not over-stylized and he does a great job capturing the atmosphere of the day, almost like stills from a documentary (documentary-style!). We would definitely recommend William.Sent on 08/10/2018

William did our engagement and wedding photos. He did an amazing job! He captured our wedding day even better then we could have imagined. William was always quick at responding to our emails and always answered any questions we had. He also had our pictures back to us so quickly! We were very impressed. If you’re looking for a photographer, William is a must! Thank you for everything!Sent on 07/12/2018

William was absolutely amazing. If you want amazing photos for your wedding along with an equally amazing photographer - then William is the person you want to work with. He was so thorough, professional, and detail oriented it really made our wedding go smoothly! He was always very responsive and helpful through email and phone calls and totally put us at ease with any questions we had. On the day of, he was on time and completely prepared. I really appreciated that he was able to give direction and get the pictures we wanted within the time frame we had. He did not miss a single moment and captured everything so beautifully. You honestly don't even notice him, but wherever he was he was able to get some awesome photos!! Highly recommend William Hendra Photography.Sent on 08/10/2018

I am so glad I picked William as my wedding photographer. I found him honest and easy to work with. He swept in quietly from the moment I arrived at my venue and began capturing special moments from then until the end of our lovely night! Every emotion - laugh, smile, kiss, and every moment he photorgraphed! I am so thrilled with how my wedding photos came out. His edits are also impeccable as the colors were vibrant, skin tones popped and every photo captured the magic of our wedding day with a unique and timeless touch!! I highly recommend Will if you want a photographer who will capture your every moment and who will be reliable. Thank you Will for all your hardwork on my wedding day!Sent on 04/15/2018
Stephanie · Married on 02/17/2018
Amazing! Hiring William was probably the best decisions I made for my wedding. He was so professional and captured every moment beautifully. You could barely notice he was ever even there, but he never missed a beat. My husband and I were very unsure of how to pose, but William knew exactly how to direct us without making every photo look staged. Honestly I could go on and on about how great he is to work with, but you'll just have to find out for yourself. Don't second guess and hire him!Sent on 02/26/2018

William completely blew us away. He captured the pictures of our wedding in January 2018. Not only was William super easy to work with, but the turnaround time for our photos was very quick!Sent on 01/30/2018
We loved his laid-back approach to pictures. Nothing was forced, and we didn't feel as though a ton of our time was being used on the pictures. Throughout the night, I feel like I hardly saw William, but he somehow captured every special moment of our day. And the pictures are so incredible - they are edited to really enhance the photos without looking like they are completely redone.
We literally could not be happier with William, and would recommend him to any-and-everyone. Thank you SO much!

William is just incredible. I was really nervous about the whole photography thing at my wedding—my husband and I are awkward people who take VERY awkward photos. William was patient with us and listened carefully to what we were looking for from our photos and holy hell, did he deliver. When we got our pictures back, we were thrilled to see how natural we looked. We were also over the moon with all of the candid shots he got of our ceremony and reception. He always seemed to know where the action was and captured so many of the moments that we missed. There's one picture in particular of my mom trying to sneak a taste of the wedding cake that makes me laugh every time I see it. Beyond his technical expertise, William is also an amazingly nice dude who is an absolute pleasure to have around on a very stressful and busy day. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.Sent on 02/02/2018

My husband and I booked William for our wedding in October, and it was one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding! He is super responsive and captured every moment. Planning a wedding has you take on so much, but he was there and captured our vision and provided us with countless memories through our photos. We look back through them often, and it's like we are right back in that moment. We definitely did our research, and William was by far affordable, and worked with us completely along the way! If you have the opportunity to book him for your wedding, or any event really. Do it!Sent on 03/13/2018

William was awesome. We wanted to hire a photographer for our wedding who would naturally and candidly capture our special day without us having to pose for a million pictures. William took amazing photos, and most of the time we didn't even know he was there. He was easy to work with and provided us with a link to our final photographs faster than we anticipated. Highly recommended!Sent on 11/06/2017

William did an unbelievably amazing job both for our Engagement photos and for our Wedding on Oct 1 2017 at the Grand Marquis in Old Bridge NJ. We were so thrilled with the quality of the photos, the high attention to detail and precision, and the artistic eye that William has! He was very professional and patient with us as well as our requests. We greeted our family during the wedding, so William took photos of us with pretty much all of the guest. We will have memories that last forever and for a very reasonable price.Sent on 10/27/2017
He was extremely helpful with helping us choose a location for our Engagement photos and Post wedding photos, since we were not from the area! He is adventurous and will go far to provide quality service; we snuck into a field of corn and green beans to take pictures in the sunset, and he was there with us, climbing through the field and crawling into uncomfortable places just to find those perfect angles.
We were beyond satisfied with the outcome!

My husband and I had the luck of finding the perfect photographer for our wedding in September. We were looking for high quality photos, and some video for our big day, that would not break our budget. Never would we imagine that not only was William and his second photographer, Andrew be professional, friendly, attentive and budget friendly, but provide the most beautiful photos (hundreds!) and a highlight video that we are still crying over because it was perfect! I think the best compliment is that the day of the wedding, at the ceremony and reception, I forgot they were there. Yet somehow they managed to capture every important moment and a lot of spontaneous fun and moving moments as well. I can not say thank you enough to this team. Brides, you will not be sorry!Sent on 11/19/2017

One of the best decisions I made for my wedding day (besides of course saying yes and getting married!). William was calm, professional and incredibly easy to work with. In addition, he was very timely in his responses which made us very comfortable, knowing that capturing our special moments were going to be taken care of.Sent on 05/30/2017
We had a small, intimate ceremony on the beach and the weather was a bit touch and go for the few days leading up- William was so go with the flow if plans needed to change, not to mention, he just hopped right in with the family to direct capturing some great shots. We also got our pictures back incredibly fast! Thank you to William, we are incredibly happy with the results.
