  • 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!!!!

  • We met Hanel randomly at a wedding vendor event and we're so glad we did! Hanel's photos automatically caught my eye at the event. His photos look like they belong in a magazine. Booking Hanel as our wedding photographer was the easiest decision we made during this whole process. Hanel is extremely professional and very easy to work with. The price point of his photopackage is well worth it for the product you receive. If I ever need another professional photographer, Hanel will be my go to.

  • When searching for a photographer to capture our NYC elopement, Hanel’s journalistic style caught my eye. And when we spoke on FaceTime, I instantly understood his passion to capture a full love story and knew he was the right photographer for us. On top of this, his manner and perfect communication just spoke volumes - I really liked him. When we stepped out of the car at the conservatory Gardens on the day of our wedding, we hit it off instantly. He set about reading the vibe of each part of the ceremony and capturing it without fuss. And afterwards I can’t believe how he managed to make an afternoon of posing for photos so much fun! He calmly posed us, ensured we were looking our very best and found some exquisite shots. Thanks to him, we relaxed and had the best time - we felt like we were with a friend. Thank you so much Hanel, not only for capturing our day beautifully and producing an iconic set of photos, but for being our wedding witness, and for carrying my handb... Read more

  • Hanel came highly recommended to us by our friends who had gotten married and chose him as their photographer, and we are so glad that we got to meet him at that wedding! He was so kind and approachable at the very first meeting that we had zero reservations in choosing him even though we didn't know too many details about his style of photography or what it would be like to work with him. Turns out his style is both inventive and artistic, and and he is extremely easy to work with (we got so lucky!) At our engagement session, he went out of his way to get shots that were absolutely gorgeous. One particular shot of us on a bridge involved him walking out very far away and still try to give us directions so we look our best in the photos. To get to all the locations we had in mind, an unanticipated cab ride was involved. Even then, Hanel took that opportunity to capture some of our favorite shots. He really goes above and beyond in every way. For couples who are not comfortable in fro... Read more

  • Hanel was the perfect choice as our photographer for our wedding day. Not only was he talented, but his calmness and professionalism shined throughout the day which helped us enjoy our wedding even more. From the very first meeting with Hanel, we felt an instant connection. Photography was one of the most important items on our list for our wedding day and we knew we had found the photographer for the job. Hanel’s passion for his profession was evident in the way that he spoke about his work and we knew that he would really be able to capture those special moments on our wedding day. We definitely warned him that we were an awkward couple that did not like being the center of attention and he told us not to worry. He was right. From our awesome engagement shoot, that felt more like friends exploring a city and taking cool photos along the way, to our wedding, Hanel offered tips to help us warm up to the camera and capture incredible shots. On the day of the wedding, Hanel ... Read more

  • We used Hanel for our proposal, engagement party, and Sangeet, and Hanel was absolutely amazing for all of it!! For the Sangeet - he captured the energy of the event and the colors beautifully! He was also super flexible and so easy to work with leading up to the big day. On the actual day, he was so incredibly patient with us and helped calm our nerves - which is exactly what we needed. For the proposal (which was a surprise and at the end of a long hike), he actually did the hike with my husband a few days prior to the proposal to help him find the perfect spot to propose! Overall - Hanel is not only an incredible photographer but he goes above and beyond to make the bride and groom feel at ease and stress free! Can not recommend him enough!

  • We hired Hanel to photograph our wedding after seeing the beautiful photos he took at a friend of mine's wedding. My friends aren't the most comfortable people in front of the camera, just like us, so that really stood out to us. If he could make them look so natural and beautiful in photos, we figured he could do the same for us. And he definitely exceeded our expectations. He and his second photographer really made us feel comfortable even with their cameras pointed at us. They were so unobtrusive yet still knew how to get everyone together for the group photos. We are super happy with our choice and can't recommend him enough!

  • Hanel! Thank you so much for being our photographer, you were the best decision we made for our wedding! We’re always grateful that everything came together perfectly for our wedding but without your photos we wouldn’t have had them captured so beautifully! You photographed every part of our day so beautifully, even the smallest details. Every time I look at our photos it reminds me of how wonderful our special day was and we can’t thank you enough for that!

  • This is a long review but it is because I wholly believe that Hanel is the best photogapher in NYC! If you want to love your wedding photos, hire him ASAP! He is for sure the best photographer that you will ever have the opportunity to hire. I was exhaustive in my search to find a NYC photographer whose work was elegant and sophisticated. There are SO MANY photographers out there, but so few with any actual talent and understanding of lighting, posing people, attention to environment and ambiance, etc. I know that sounds harsh, but just take a look around your Facebook or any wedding website and it seems like everyone with a decent camera thinks they are worthy of a National Geographic cover. If you are going to splurge anywhere, SPLURGE ON A GOOD PHOTOGRAPHER! And save yourself the regret and book Hanel right now. He will be professional, he will be calm, he knows how to pose everyone (no random, rushed grouping of people, no awkward poses), he has excellent ideas that will execute fl... Read more

  • Hanel is a professional with great eye for detail and amazing ability to capture magic as it unfolds. When we first met Hanel for engagement photos, what struck us most was his unassuming nature and easygoing personality. He is very good at giving directions on positioning but also flexible on the shots and details we wanted captured. Since we are dog lovers, we had him capture snapshots with random dogs that happened to be near us during the photoshoot. For the wedding, we had two dogs walk down the aisle and he captured that moment effortlessly. His presentation is immaculate. Everyone including my family members noticed his professionalism, generosity, and artistry. He also has fast turnaround on final photos. We highly recommend him for any occasion.
