  • If I could give Brian 20 stars I would. When we first started looking for a photographer, we knew it would be a tough balance between sticking to our limited budget and still getting a high quality, talented photographer. You'll look at these photos for the rest of your life, after all. We were thrilled when we found Brian - his work was exceptional and his prices were reasonable. We felt even more confident when we met him and discovered how friendly and easygoing he is. He took all of our suggestions into consideration and was very organized the day of the wedding. He kept us and our rowdy wedding party relaxed and having fun in the midst of a hot, long day, and somehow he managed to keep his easygoing demeanor for the entirety of the day: from 10:30 am, when he first arrived, to 11:00 pm, when he finally left. We had a number of guests comment on how unobtrusive he was, and what a generally nice and fun guy he was. We had sneak peek photos available to look at the very next day and ... Read more

  • My husband and I used Brian as our photographer for our wedding back in October and he was fantastic! Brian was very easygoing and laid back - so easy to work with, especially for two people who aren't the most comfortable in front of a camera! Our photos are gorgeous and I love looking back on them. They are exactly what I hoped for, and Brian and his assistant Wendy got every shot and then some. I would absolutely work with them again. I highly recommend HaleChannel for your event!

  • While my then-fiancee and I were going through and watching different vendor wedding videos we were blown away by the quality of HaleChannel compared to the many other videos we watched. The price point was modest for the quality that you receive. We were very impressed the first time we met with Brian Hale. He made living in OK and planning a wedding in MA absolutely seamless. Brian was a joy to work with during the planning process and Shannon and Mike were very well versed in their work and slipped into the background to go unnoticed. They were able to perfectly capture our special day. They also worked extremely well with our other vendors to coordinate the perfect shot. Additionally, we were blown away by the videos that HaleChannel created for us. We received them in a very timely manner and were extremely impressed with everything from the quality, to the music they chose, to the seamless transitions. We would absolutely recommend HaleChannel for your videography needs.

  • When it came time to choose a videographer for our wedding, my husband and I did not know where to begin. We also came to the realization we had waited a bit too last minute to start looking for a videographer. We went through lists of recommendations from The Knot and Zola trying to find a good fit – and started getting worried when most vendors were already booked! We were so fortunate that we were referred to Brian, and he happened to luckily still have our day free! Brian turned out the be the best videographer we could have asked for. From the start, Brian was willing to work with us to design a package that fit our needs and budget. This was a big help. He was also available for a pre-planning meeting where we went through the entire day and timeline, as well as some of the footage we wanted to make sure was captured. Brian had a lot of great ideas he brought to the table, and our favorite was that he interviewed our close loved ones so that he could include clips of their in... Read more

  • Brian was the videographer for our winter wedding. We knew we had a number of family members who would not be able to attend our wedding, and so having a video of the day was important to both us and our family who live far away. Brian worked well with our wedding photographer and had lots of ideas for what to capture on our day. He is extremely friendly and professional, and his work is breathtaking. We went with the raw footage package, and all the footage was delivered within a week of our wedding. My husband and I have been having a lot of fun reviewing all of it together. We had no idea he got a bunch of drone footage of the venue that came out awesome! Brian's edited videos are also beautiful. We had to make a significant last minute change to the wedding timeline because of weather concerns, and Brian was very accommodating and supportive. Planning a wedding is stressful and it's nice to work with people who you feel like you can trust and who want you to have the best possible ... Read more

  • We used Brian for photography and video for our wedding in June 2018 and we couldn’t be happier. He is super organized, extremely responsive to all of my questions, last minute ideas and very very creative. Our video came out amazing.

We are so great full we have our video and photos to look back on!

  • Brian is a true professional. He had photographed my friends weddings and I knew that I wanted him to photograph our wedding. After our first meeting with Brian, my fiance was also immediately in agreement. You can sense Brian's passion about photography instantly. Leading up to the wedding Brian was incredibly responsive and easy to work with. He provided us with a full photo shot list of all the formal photos we would be taking at the wedding. The day of the wedding Brian was there early taking photos of the venue, and he was able to capture every shot that I could have wanted. We are so happy with our wedding photos. Brian really told a story with our photos, and the formals and the first look photos are exquisite. Another huge plus, every photo was professionally edited and was quality. Brian doesn't whitewash his photos and all of them are clear and crisp. Additionally, Brian was able to photograph every single person who attended the wedding reception, which is something we are ... Read more

  • I didn't know what to expect when we decided to meet with photographers for our wedding. Right away, from the first meeting, I felt very comfortable with Brian. He had great ideas, was fun, was very organized, and flexible. Also, talk about value! He's unlimited hours for one price! He was with us from 11 AM to 11 PM on the day of our wedding. We also had a big wedding party of 21 people which didn't faze Brian one bit. Our photos came out amazing and we are so happy to have worked with Brian

  • We were so lucky to have Brian as our wedding photographer! He is exceptionally talented and the final product was a great array of different photos that truly captured the day and the spirit of our wedding. Our photos were well edited, and he even sends black/white and sepia versions of all of them. Most importantly, Brian was so fun to work with. He is enthusiastic and puts everyone at ease, and he truly seems to love what he'd doing. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer in the area.

  • Brian helped us out super last minute after we fired our photographer a week before our wedding! Brian jumped right in, traveled the distance, and took amazing photos. Brian was flexible, willing to listen and shoot any ideas that were given to him. Brian worked well with our videographer, and provided us with some sample photos and a USB drive in a very nice little box, great presentation! It did not take long at all to get this box and subsequently the digital access to all of our pictures! We would recommend Brian again and again!

  • My husband and I were married in June of this year. When the topic of a videographer came up while planning my husband wasn't sure we needed one- we had already booked a photographer. We agreed to at least meet Brian Hale and see what we thought! Once we were in Brian's studio my husband's opinion changed instantly. Brian is clearly passionate about his work; you see it the moment you meet him. He truly loves what he does and it was clearly reflected in the end product of our video. The day of the wedding we worked with his assistants, Mike and Shannon, who were two of the most professional people I've met. I was worried that the house was a mess since I had so many women getting ready together and they assured me it was not a problem (This felt like a huge deal for me at the time!!) They captured every intimate moment of the ceremony and I cannot thank them enough for letting me relive that on a daily basis if I want! Our reception had many small details (signs, toasting glasses, favo... Read more

  • I couldn't be more happy that we chose Brian at HaleChannel Photography for my daughter's wedding! Choosing a photographer for a wedding is a very difficult choice, there are no do overs! I cannot say enough good about Brian and the quality of his photography! My husband was concerned because Brian typically only took one shot for each picture, and my husband wondered how Brian could possibly know that one shot was all he needed. Well guess what – Brian nailed it each and every time! He is creative, very pleasant to work with, and a top quality professional! After the fact, he quickly and cheerfully performed any edits that I requested. Do not hesitate to use Brian as your photographer! He is the best!

  • Brian was amazing! When our photographer canceled two weeks before the wedding, we had no idea what to do! Our coordinator highly suggested we reach out to Brian and we are so glad we did. Even though we did not have a chance to meet with him in person before the wedding, he was available to plan over the phone. He was extremely professional and having him at our wedding felt completely natural. He listened to our ideas for shots and created great shots of his own. I could not recommend him highly enough.

  • Overall I had a good experience with this company. I bought the basic Raw package. They sent 2 videographers to my wedding along with a drone. They were able to capture some good shots, however a lot of the shots we're not great. There were no great shots of me coming down the aisle, no great ones of really anyone coming down the aisle, and although the ceremony was filmed it wasn't filmed in the best way really. I really wanted the ceremony to have good footage and I feel like they didn't capture the ceremony as well as I would have liked. Still okay footage, but I would have liked better footage of the ceremony for sure.
