  • I without question would recommend Weddings by Hanel to every Bride & Groom. Hanel was an absolute pleasure to work with from the moment we met him- He is extremely professional while still being warm and kind in a way that sets you at ease and makes you excited and comfortable in the present moment. Hanel will capture your wedding in ways that you would never imagine. Hanel’s photography literally creates your wedding into a work of art and we are so thankful we chose him to capture our special day. Choosing Hanel to do our wedding photography was probably one of the easiest wedding decisions we made. From the moment we met with him we felt at ease and excited to have him capture our day. The package we chose included an engagement shoot. We had never done a photo-shoot before and definitely had never worked one on one with a professional photographer so to say we were nervous is an understatement. The engagement shoot was our first time truly experiencing how talented Hanel is an... Read more

  • Wedding 9/28/19: 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 ... Read more

  • Hanel is a true artist and professional. From the moment we met him, he exhibited a meticulous attention to detail and understanding of the flow of weddings. He put us at ease with the thoughtful questions he asked, things that we would have never thought of or expected, and he continued to communicate to maintain our confidence in having chosen him. When it came to the day of the wedding, he was punctual, prepared and mindful of time. He was very proficient in posing us, getting his shots quickly, and made creative use of our surroundings. He did a great job capturing the moments we shared, the details we had put thought into, the mandatory group photos, and the fun that was had. As a semi-pro photographer, I hold photos to a high artistic and technical standard and Hanel delivered on all fronts! His work was worth every penny and I couldn't recommend him enough!

  • 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!

  • We can't recommend Hanel highly enough. He is detail-oriented, super competent, and incredibly thoughtful. He communicated clearly and quickly throughout the process and on the day itself he was punctual, took care of everything without adding any stress at all, and quickly delivered us a totally memorable video. Our guests who attended via Zoom started emailing us immediately to say how great it was on their end!

  • Having Hanel at our wedding was the best decision ever. It is so important these days to be able to share these moments with our families and friends via online streaming, and leaving these tech aspects to a professional alleviates a lot of stress. Since we were on a budget, we chose the cheapest option which was one camera for one hour of actual filming. Hanel arrived well in advance to have time to properly set up his material. He uses microphones, an HD camera and his own internet hotspot to live stream the video. Hanel proposed a variety of streaming platforms and we chose Youtube Live that is very easy to use for the virtual guests. The video was great and all our 200 virtual guests were super happy. We received a lot of compliments. Thanks Hanel!!!

  • We couldn't be happier about our entire experience with Hanel! On the day that we booked him, we actually had a meeting with another photographer later in the day. After meeting with Hanel, we cancelled on the other photographer because we didn't want to waste his time when we knew we were choosing Hanel! He is so friendly and truly cares about his clients. He wasn't quick to talk to us about packages, pricing, etc. but genuinely wanted to hear about our story and what we were looking for. We booked him (photo/video) for our big wedding (August 2020), but because of COVID, we moved our big wedding to next year. However, we still got married this year (June 2020 - 15 people total including my husband and I), so I asked Hanel if he would be willing to shoot our small wedding as well. He was more than willing and we are SO HAPPY with our pictures. Honestly, it seemed like a friend was taking pictures of us. We were so comfortable and he made great use of our surroundings. I highly recomme... Read more

  • Hanel tells the story of the best days of our lives through his compelling and candid photography. He captured the essence of our love with beautiful images from our engagement and wedding. Hanel creates depth and gravity through detail, ensuring that even the small things are perfect. He adds a personal touch through strategic lighting, flattering poses, and chin angles. Hanel made us feel comfortable during awkward moments when we couldn’t figure out what to do with our hands or how to pose. During our wedding, he kept an eye out for all of our guests by talking to the group and letting them know what he wanted them to do. He evokes emotion through his style and creative eye. In addition to his amazing talent, his humble personality sets him apart from the crowd.

  • My husband and I are so grateful to Hanel and his team for coordinating the live streaming for our wedding last month. He and teammate, Hyunsu, were incredibly professional and kind throughout the planning process and on our wedding day. Our family and friends were so grateful for the ability to be there virtually, and the footage came out great! We would highly recommend. It was some of the best money we spent on our wedding day! Thank you! Thank you for being willing to work with us during such strange times. Besides recommending you to our friends,

  • 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... Read more

  • From one bride to all the other brides out there, we all know how STRESSFUL the BIG day can be from start to finish. I have to say the one thing that made one of the biggest things a huge relief was our amazing photographer, Hanel. There are so many amazing things I can say about him. He was so nice, super professional and extremely helpful during the whole process. I really felt like he made sure we looked AMAZING for our photos from adjusting my hair to keeping an eye on all the little things that will make the photo just that much better! He made beautiful suggestions that we never thought would look so good! He has such an eye! In the end, we LOVED our photos. I couldn't be happier. It was a pleasure to work with him and I highly recommend him!!!

  • My fiancee and I were blown away by Hanel’s portfolio from the beginning; his photos have a photojournalistic feel that is both intimate and unique. Once we started communicating via email, we were even more impressed with his passion and professionalism. He is patient, quick to respond, helpful with lots of suggestions, and flexible to accommodate our changing plans and requests. We recently had our proposal/engagement photo session with Hanel, and the experience was outstanding. He was great at posing the two of us and our friends. Hanel was so kind, attentive and friendly that the all of us felt comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. The photos turned out exceptional. My favorites are his candid shots; he captured the joy and excitement of the day perfectly. I’m so happy we have chosen Hanel as our photographer, and I can’t wait to have our wedding session with him. If you are looking for a dedicated, talented and kind photographer, look no further; Hanel is t... Read more

  • Hanel was so easy to work with both in the lead up to our wedding and on our wedding day. I was honestly a little worried about taking photos but he made it all so comfortable and stress free. Most importantly-we LOVE the photos that Hanel took of our wedding.

  • He came to the place early and see what angles are good and even helped us to set up name cards on the tables so he could get me and my husband at the middle in photos. The whole family asked so many pictures but he made all of them so perfectly. Very impressed!!! I definitely recommend him to my friends! 식 전에 일찍와서 주인공들 자리 셋업을 도와주었어요! 그래야 저희 커플이 전체적인 사진 중간에 찍힐 수 있다면서요ㅎ 그 외에도 저희 가족들이 사진을 엄청 많이 요청했는데, 전부다 정말 잘나왔어요!! 그중에 애기 사진찍는게 참 어려운데도 잘 찍어주셨더라구요~ 완전 강추합니당!!!!
