I can't begin to tell you how amazing the Hinkleys are as wedding photographers - and people in general! They not only were fun, made us feel comfortable, were professional and knowledgeable, but our pictures came out AMAZING. Seriously. Check out their blog (search for Hayley & Tyler to see ours!) and you will see what I mean. They are artsy without being silly, and they really know how to capture a couple's personality. I could not recommend anything more than this husband & wife team. They will surpass your expectations.
The Hinkley's are a truely professional husband and wife team. They were great to work with. Our pictures came out amazing!! Couldn't say enough good things about them. I would highly recommend them.
My husband and I share photography as a hobby, so we knew that this category was where we wanted to research and invest in. When we first met Matt & Liz, we were immediately blown away by their business practices, equipment, design, and skill. Looking through their photos, they have such a fresh and consistent quality.
My husband and I are now burdened with the hardest decision of which photo to use for our Thank You cards... The Hinkley's did a magnificent job. I totally want to hire them again in the future!
Matt and Liz Hinkley were truly the best wedding photographers that we could have asked for. We were married on July 6, 2013, and Hinkley Photo made sure we will never forget a single moment of our day.
Our engagement and wedding photos are absolutely stunning, and everyone in my family is so pleased (and some of our family members are very picky, to put it kindly). My husband and I could not be more thrilled with the memories we have, and the hardest part of working with the Hinkleys was choosing which of all the beautiful photos we liked best for our 30-page album.
However, Matt and Liz offer so much more than stunning photos, which is why you should seriously consider booking them. First of all, the Hinkleys could not be more organized before your wedding. They really take the time to get to know you as a couple during your engagement shoot and through a pre-wedding questionnaire. All of their forms and documents are conveniently located on an online system, and it is very easy to make payments. Also, Matt and Liz gave us great recommendations for other vendors. I think Liz responded to every one of my many emails within 12 hours or less, even during their busy wedding season! By our wedding day, I felt completely comfortable with Matt and Liz, and I was so excited to see them when they arrived at our venue.
On the wedding day, Liz stayed with me and my bridesmaids while we got ready, and she kept me calm and organized throughout the getting ready process. I honestly felt as though she was reading my mind because before I could say the words, "Where did I put my veil?" Liz would be holding my veil out for me to put on. This happened over and over throughout the evening. Liz reminded me to put on my garter, my something blue, and a piece of family jewelry I would have forgotten! I pride myself on being very organized, and I had 7 bridesmaids there plus my mother to help me on my wedding day, but somehow Liz was the one person who remembered everything! I think I said, "Thank god for Liz," about 10 times on my wedding day! She was calm, patient, and collected, and her professional demeanor kept all of us focused and excited.
Of course, I was not present while my husband was getting ready with his groomsmen, but when I told him later about how amazingly helpful and kind Liz had been with all of the girls, my husband tried to tell me that Matt was even more helpful (not possible, sorry Matt!). Apparently, Matt helped wrangle all seven rowdy groomsmen for photos, and Matt even quietly and politely encouraged a few of them to slow down on the pre-ceremony drinks (thank goodness!).
Before the ceremony, Matt and Liz arranged a special moment for my husband and I to be together in photos without seeing each other. Thanks to them, it was really creative and special!
Both Matt and Liz were completely unobtrusive during our wedding ceremony and our reception, but I also felt as though they were right nearby whenever we needed them. One of my best wedding memories was when Matt and Liz stole my husband and I away for a quick night-time, outdoor photo. It was a private, romantic moment of calm in our busy evening, and I absolutely cherish the beautiful photo from that moment.
If you are looking for photographers who will put you at ease, treat you with respect, make your wedding day even more special, and take perfect photos, then stop shopping and hire the Hinkleys.
We did not actually have the Hinkley couple, however we had Seth their very talented co-worker who learned much of his photography style based on the Hinkley's style. Overall the experience was very pleasant and fun. The company is very organized and professional which makes them easy and great to work with. Seth was accommodating or our needs and fantastic to work with in person. The business side was easy to understand and they made you felt valued the whole way through the process. The pictures came out beautiful and Seth did a great job capturing the perfect moments of our day!
Matt & Liz are AMAZING! Everything from the engagement pictures to the boudoir session to our AMAZING wedding pictures were done so professionally and so thought out. They are a blast to work with and have a style that is incomparable to other photographers in the area.
The best part- you get a preview of your pictures the day after your event! AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING.
Matt & Liz are amazing!!! Not only are their pictures amazing, but they make you feel so comfortable while taking photos! They have the eye for artistic photos that you would NEVER see yourself! They are amazing!!!!
Matt and Liz were awesome to work with! They really listened to what we were looking for and delivered with the results! We are so happy we chose them to photograph our wedding and highly recommend them!
I knew before I was even engaged that I wouldn't want anyone but the Hinkley's to capture my big day. I hadn't met them yet, only seen their incredibly creative photos from a friends wedding. I was engaged for one month and booked them right away for our engagement session. The communication was amazing and they were right on board with all of my crazy ideas (had engagement pics done in the high school that we met in) The pictures were so unique and fresh that they were even featured on Bean Town Bride! Then we were 8 months away from the wedding. In that time we came to be friends with Matt and Liz fro mtheir amazing personalities. I'm a photographer and the last thing I wanted to worry about on my big day was missing any "special moments" from the 8 kids in the wedding, to our newborn neice of 3 days to all of the intricate details I put so much time and attention into, the Hinkley's captured every single detail! I never once picked up my own camera. I recommend their services over mine because I haven't met a better team out there. They are so loving, not afraid to jump in and help, and have become life long friends. If you want to remember every second of your big day, hire them. You WILL NOT REGRET IT! Thanks Matt and Liz, we can't wait til we have a little one and have you capture the next big moment in our lives.
Hiring Matt & Liz Hinkley was the best wedding planning decision we made! If I could give them 10 stars I would! Photography was our #1 priority and we were willing to sacrifice in other areas in order to afford the best photographer. Hinkley Photo is not inexpensive but you really get what you pay for - we had extremely high expectations and they were exceeded. We got 2 awesome photographers and INCREDIBLE photos. They made us look and feel like super models! They captured the true moments of our special day instead of creating fake posed photos. We have already gotten so many comments from our guests about how not in they way Matt & Liz were. They were also really fun down to earth people! Liz ended up helping me fix a hair emergency and Matt helped my groom who had no idea what to do with his tux!
We loved the sneak peek of our photos on their blog the NEXT day. We got the rest of our engagement photos extremely fast and our wedding photos will be ready within 6 weeks of the wedding - among the married people I know this is unheard of! We also can't wait to see the wedding album they are putting together for us... we know we will be blown away!
We are Hinkley Photo customers for life after the awesome experience we had with our wedding. You would be crazy not to hire them!
We Love working with the Hinkleys! They did our engagement photos as well as our wedding. They were not intrusive in anyway and did not make us hold unnatural poses. The photos came out beautifully! I highly recommend using the Hinkleys. They are fantastic people!
Love Love Love the Hinkleys! They are so professional and keep their word. They have a wonderful system down with their blog so you get a taste of your pictures before you see the final result. We couldn't be happier with our pictures from our very special day!!
I really can't say enough about the Hinkleys. They are such an amazing couple and are so fun to be around. Pictures are AMAZING! Very creative and beautiful. It was so awesome that we got to preview our pics on the blog the next day. They really know how to capture those special moments. Everybody that saw our pictures could not say enough about how wonderful they were. I would hire the Hinkleys a million times over.
The Hinkleys are a wonderful couple, and good photographers. But unfortunately, I can't say we love our pictures. And I really, really want to love them.
1st-We were threatened with rain, so Matt suggested we do b&g shots first, family & bridal party after. Unfortunately they didn't know the venue and took us out of the way which took up too much time. In short, half of our photos look rushed and when it came to the family & bridal shots, we had no time at all. Which made for pictures that lack in creativity. We are all smooshed in a line and they didn't even wait for everyone to smile.
2nd-I believe their style is more suited to rustic, outdoor, perhaps barn style weddings. Ours was formal, in a mansion and they seemed to take pictures of anything but the mansion. It just wasn't represented as much as I thought it would be or wanted it to be. ie; they took us next door to an abandoned school with boarded up windows, instead of staying on the manicured mansion grounds. I'm sure they thought the shot was cool, but we chose to get married at the mansion because of it's beauty.
3rd- The decor/detail images we have are all cropped. Being a DIY bride I was excited to see everything come together, but you don't get that sense when everything is cropped. ie. Escort card table had a large arrangement with candles etc and was a focal point upon entering the venue. But there is no picture of the complete table, only individual placecards. That holds true for the candy bar we also had. I saw it on that day but of course it had already been altered by the guests.
4th- There were a lot of things that were missed, I'll mention a few. They took no photos of our guests, aside from those dancing. We have no photos at night and none of our custom made table numbers. And aside from the few rushed group shots, there are no other pics of the bridesmaids, groom with mother & sister, bride with father, mother or brother separately.
In general I just don't feel like they represented us or our wedding very well. I look at the pictures and question; I can't believe they missed that, why would they crop that, why isn't that centered, why didn't they tell us to turn our heads or adjust our clothing so it didn't look funny. Things didn't look their best and it's because they didn't take the time to either tell us what to do or position the decorative elements to look their best.
The Hinkleys are pricey and highly rated, because of that..I guess I expected more. Also, you won't find us on their Facebook page(our wedding wasn't even mentioned), or website. If they loved the pics they shot at our wedding, you think we would see them somewhere and I can't find one shot.
My husband hates, and I mean HATES, to have his picture taken. Seth from HinkleyPhoto took on this challenge and was awesome. In about 25 minutes he got all the "formal" pictures we needed and then I honestly didn't know he was there until the end of the night. The photos are fantastic - If he could get such wonderful images from us, I guarantee the Hinkley's will provide you with exactly what you want.
We just love Matt and Liz. They did my brothers wedding and I loved the pictures of their day so there wasnt a doubt in my mind that they wouldnt be at ours. They are so fun and really pay close attention to your likes! The best thing is after your wedding they give you a little sneak peak at a good handfull of pictures to hold you over..they are amazing with cameras I recommend Matt and Liz to EVERYONE! We were able to build our own package. They will be doing more pictures for us...
Matt and Liz Hinkley went above and beyond.. our wedding photos came out fantastic. They were so easy to work with and their work is so awesome and creative. Love! Would definitely recommend!
Matt and Liz are simply amazing. They captured every detail and made our day absolutely perfect. Their photos are simple, classic and completely natural. We could not have asked for better photographers!
Hinkley is a husband and wife team. They do an amazing job and the final photos are those to cherish for a lifetime.
They are far from traditional and sometimes you might want a little tradition in the photos along with the ones that are unconventional. My only wish is that they focused a little more on our immediate family and took photos of not only the people on the dance floor but the other 50% that attended the reception.
They also do a photo booth and I feel like the DJ really needs to make a huge effort more than once to get the point across because at our wedding not everyone knew about it.
You don't want to be overwhelmed with photos but I expected way more with there being 2 photographers.
Overall they did do a great job and I am very thankful we were so lucky to have them.
I don't even know where to begin! Booking Hinkley Photo was one of the best decisions we made. My husband and I have received sooo many compliments on not only the sneak peek of our photos they posted on their blog less than 2 days after the wedding, but also what great people they are! Everyone commented on how friendly and kind they are. They made Pete and I feel so relaxed and I cannot even begin to tell you how much we LOVE the photos we've seen so far.
I'll end this review with one comment I received from a friend about their photos..."they capture the moment so beautifully.. like they are in your head and know what you are thinking and feeling"!!
