Affinity photography is flat-out amazing!
At first, we were interested in Affinity because we loved the look of Sean's photos - he has an amazing eye, and a style that captures unique creative shots that embody the event and the personalities of the couple he is shooting.
When we met with Sean, we understood why we like his work so much – he absolutely loves photography. His enthusiasm for the process, from start to finish is unmatched. Every step of the way through the process, Sean made us feel comfortable, listened, and did everything he could to make sure our wedding photos were perfect.
However, the best endorsement I can provide is that Sean was truly invested in making our day special. From the moment we met him, Sean was as excited about our wedding as we were. He captured our wedding in a way that allows us to relive this amazing day through our wedding album.
We have recommended Sean to friends and family, and I can whole-heartedly recommend Sean to anyone looking for a great photographer to capture the magic of your wedding day.
This was a fantastic wedding! Here's some shots http://www.affinityseattle.com/blog/2013/6/14/katie-kiel
-Sean, Affinity Photography
Sean and his assistant for the day were absolutely amazing to work with. They were with us from start to finish and made our wedding day flow smoothly while also making sure we were having fun. I was beyond excited to see the final product, there was not one photo that I did not like. Sean listened to what style of photos and locations were important to us and came up with some amazing shots. His expertise and artistic touch really shine through his work. I would recommend him to anyone that asks. My bridal party was very impressed with him and we are still getting comments about how professional yet fun he was to work with, which is important on your wedding day in order to keep the stress and nerves to a minimum! Thank you Affinity Photography for capturing all those important moments for us and helping us to treasure them forever!
Affinity photography had two shooters and they were literally with us the entire day! They are creative, fun to work with, and have a very artistic eye. Their photos are modern, unique, and elegant. They really worked hard to help make our wedding day one-of-a-kind! I would definitely recommend them!
Sean Hoyt of Affinity photography is truly talented! He is creative beyond belief and balances that with his technical skills to capture this special day. Sean kept everyone loose and smiling with his humor. He was always in position to capture all "the action" and did so without us even being aware. Sean works hard to capture the memories of your day. Worth every penny!
Supremely satisfied Mother and Father of the Bride
We loved our experience with Affinity. Sean was the first photographer we met, and we knew instantly that he was the right choice for us. I'd checked out his online portfolio pretty extensively -- amazingly gorgeous -- and just wanted a meet and greet to make sure we were on the same page. Chris and I immediately clicked with Sean and his wife Candace; they are funny, warm, talented, and were very excited to be involved in our wedding day.
You never have to ask Sean to go the extra mile; he is always ready and willing to accommodate ideas. We got married on Orcas Island, and he and Candace traveled up to the island with us a few weeks ahead of time to do a preliminary scouting mission. He also did a two part engagement shoot with us in different locations.
Sean's assistant, Kiel, is wonderful as well. The whole team is easy going, easy to work with, and take beautiful, creative photos. We wanted our wedding to be fun, whimsical, and a little quirky, and Sean and Kiel definitely captured the essence of the event.
Worth every penny! We couldn't be more pleased with the results. Artistic photos + great personalities = can't go wrong!
Sean with Affinity Photography not only impressed us with his incredible artistic ability, but also made me feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the day. My husband and I now consider him a friend and plan to use him for all of our future family photos. We are blown away by the quality of our engagement and wedding pictures and will treasure them forever.
Sean was very professional and useful in the whole process. Both he and his wife were flexible, competent and non-intrusive. Very pleasant to deal with. Beautiful pictures, and all photos were released to us- no nickle and diming,
If you are looking for a wedding photographer, look no further. That is, if you are looking for a photographer who enjoys working with their clients and researches your locations and will capture beautiful memories of your special day, then Affinity Photography is who you should pick.
Choosing Affinity as our wedding photographer was truly one of the best decisions we made when putting our special day together. Sean took great care in making sure that the photos he took and compiled for us were ones that captured our love and wedding as beautifully and sincerely as we could have ever hoped for. I highly recommend Affinity to anyone and everyone!
What can I say about Sean other than he is the best! Vendor response was a big deal to us because we like to be in the know ASAP and he always got back to us within 24-48 hours. Our meetings with him were always extremely fun and creative. We had some of our own ideas and Sean was always able to take our thoughts and utilize his artistic talent and take beautiful portraits of us and the surrounding area. Our engagement pictures were turned into an amazing signing book. Not only was Sean willing to scope out and review the area prior to the wedding and reception but he also stayed with us during the entirety of our special day. Our wedding album is so wonderful. We love the fact that he provides us copies of all of our pictures on disc. Trust us when we say that if you are looking for a photographer who enjoys working with their clients and researches your locations and you want beautiful memories of your special day, Affinity Photography is who you should pick. Thank you Sean and your entire team at Affinity Photography for an amazing job!
Affinity Photography was the first vendor we booked for our wedding. From the beginning Sean met us with his professional portfolio, and while we had no other ideas for our wedding he had tons of creative ideas for our engagement photos and promised to deliver for our wedding when the day came. He completely did. From start to end he was with us for our engagement, and from start to end he was with us our ENTIRE wedding day.
After the wedding my husband(!) and I met at Sean's studio for a big Reveal of all of our photos - set in a beautiful slideshow in a fun, relaxed setting. It was such a wonderful way to remember the day.
Now the hardest decision is picking out our favorites! Our house will be covered in AMAZING photos from Sean's work. All of our friends rave about them too - Some of them are already begging for the candid ones of themselves from the wedding because they want them on their own mantels! They will have to wait until Christmas :)
- Thank you Sean and Team!!
My husband is in to photography so I left the hunt up to him for our wedding. After meeting with 4 other people we finally found Sean with Affinity Photography. Sean is down to earth, shoots beautiful photos and a total hidden gem (although not for long) in the wedding photography world.
At first we weren't planning to get engagement photos because it wasn't in our budget but Sean included them in his package because he wants to get to know his clients before shooting them on their big day. We actually met him on 2 separate days and at 2 different locations!
Sean and his team truly care about your photos turning out great, they have a unique eye for composition, and are willing to try anything out! I am so happy we chose Affinity to capture our wedding and would recommend them without hesitation to anyone looking for a photographer. You won't be disappointed!
Going with Affinity photography was one of the best decisions we made in the wedding planning process. We were looking for high quality photography and Sean and his assistant definitely provided that. Sean was easy to work with, creative and has a great eye for memorable fun photos.
I highly recommend Affinity Photography to anyone
We really enjoyed having Sean as a photographer for our wedding day. He was highly recommended by a friend and we're so glad that we decided on working with Sean. He did such a great job in capturing every moment and made us feel at ease.
Sean is a gifted photographer!!!!
Sean is highly recommended! He captures the moments, spends quality time discussing shots and your ideas, and adapts to your personality. Extremely easy to work with.
I had such a GREAT time at your Newcastle wedding!! Here's one of my favorites:
Sean and his team were wonderful on the day of our wedding they were with us all day and didn't miss a beat. They are very professional and both photographers have an amazing eye. They were constantly bouncing ideas off of each other and remained professional and courteous the entire time. Even with the rain, lightening and storm clouds they got the lighting just right and our pictures turned out beautiful. Thanks Affinity you guys rock!
Now that the last bit of family has gone home, and we have returned back to the real world, I am finally able to say to you....THANK YOU SEAN! You are truly amazing, both as a photographer, and as a person! You made us all feel so comfortable, and that helped us to relax, and allowed you to do what you do so beautifully! The photos you've shown us so far are amazing, and it just wets my appetite to see more! The wedding was incredible...my DREAM wedding! Everything went so perfectly, and that was in large part thanks to you. I really am just so grateful, profoundly touched by my family and friends, and excited that we captured this all through incredible photography. To anyone who is thinking about using Affinity for their wedding, I can wholeheartedly say “DO IT!” You will be thrilled with the creative, personal pictures Sean will capture of your event…maybe the biggest of your life. People told me the photographer is the most important choice you’ll make in your wedding planning, and now I get it. I’m so glad we made the right one!
We were very pleased with Sean's work for our engagement and wedding photos... they turned out great! He had many good suggestions for locations, poses, etc., but was very accommodating of our suggestions too. After talking with other photographers, we really appreciated how his price is all inclusive: two photographers and an assistant for as long as you need them; no time limits. He also includes the digital files of your photos, which was something most others charged extra for. Would definitely recommend Affinity!
Sean was amazing! He took our engagement photos at Gasworks and Greenlake, and the photos turned out to be really beautiful, unique and modern.
He was fun to work with, and his creativity really showed in our photos. I strongly recommend him!
We are so happy to have found Sean to photograph our wedding! We were drawn to his amazing vivid style and our photos truly exceeded our expectations. Photography was high on our list of priorities for our wedding and we are so grateful to have these beautiful pictures as memories that we will treasure forever. He captured the details uniquely and beautifully, as well as the emotion, ambiance, and events of the day. Personality is hugely important when choosing a photographer (they are with you every moment of the day!) and Sean was such a joy to work with. He is very professional, but is also able to roll with however the day goes with a great attitude and much appreciated sense of humor. He was the perfect choice for us and would be a slam dunk for anyone else wanting nothing less than simply gorgeous photos of their special day.
