We put a lot of thought and research into choosing our wedding photographer. After meeting with the Hinkleys, we knew that they were the right fit for us. I loved the idea of having another couple do our pictures. During our initial meeting, it was evident that they were both warm, friendly fun-loving people who shared a talent and passion for photography. Our wedding package came with a complimentary engagement shoot and we gave them little direction when it came to a location for the engagement shoot. We had described ourselves as “outdoorsy” people and told them we wanted something in the woods and rustic backgrounds. They took us to a park nearby and the location was beautiful and exactly what we had hoped for. After seeing what they could do with the engagement shoot, we knew that we chose the right people to photograph our wedding. Fast forward to a week after the engagement shoot, and they already had the pictures available to us on an easy to use website. I was shocked at how quickly they were able to turn around the pictures, especially because I knew it was prime wedding season (summer) for them. We ordered a couple of prints from this shoot and the quality was absolutely perfect. The wedding was no different as far as the beauty they were able to capture. They both showed up on time, maybe even a little early, to start their picture taking. Matt went and took pictures of the groomsmen party getting ready and Liz met the bridal party at the salon to take pictures. Neither were invasive at all. They made some small suggestions here and there but allowed us to interact as if they were not there which resulted in some great candid shots. I felt completely comfortable having Liz around as she has a great personality. For our pictures, we went to Newcastle Commons and unfortunately it was a freezing cold day in mid-November. Matt and the boys were out for 40 minutes in the cold shooting pictures. I’m sure he was really uncomfortable in the cold but I would have never known it and the pictures came out great. Matt and Liz both worked so well together and pointed out places on the spot for us to get out of the limo and take some additional unplanned photos, which ended up becoming some of our favorite shots. Matt and Liz know the Seacoast very well and were able to select some great spots to photograph our wedding party in Portsmouth. During the reception, Matt and Liz both were great about reminding us of certain group photos I had told them I hoped to get. They even gave us a 10 minute warning when their time was almost up so we could get a few more before they had to leave. Just like with the engagement shoot, they had our pictures edited and ready to order/view in really good time. I think it took about 3 weeks total to get them all back in neatly organized folders separating the various elements of the day. All in all, I would highly recommend Matt and Liz if you want to be satisfied with your experience and can afford to use them. For the money, they are worth it and truly provide a quality experience. I have heard some horror stories from other brides and their photos, which makes me even more content with our decision to use the Hinkleys. They went above and beyond our expectations in their talent, personalities and professionalism.
The Hinkleys were the perfect pair to capture me and my perfect pair. They were responsive, fun to work with, and the finished product was always better than expected. My husband hates having his picture taken and can usually be seen giving a forced smile when asked to pose but both Liz and Matt were able to make him feel totally comfortable. Now we have more great pictures of the two of us than we know what to do with. Thank you for capturing our special day and so many of the special moments that went by for us in a blur! We would highly recommend The Hinkleys!
The Hinkley's are by far the best there is! From the minute we met them and Laura and Matt geeked out over Go Pro's and drones, we knew we didn't want to work with anyone else. Matt and Liz were incredible to work with. Their photos captured the beauty of the landscape behind us as well as capturing the love between us. The wedding video they created for us is something we will cherish forever! The night itself flew by and having this video allows for us to relive all of the beautiful moments we were too overwhelmed to appreciate. We would highly recommend the Hinkley's to anyone looking for natural, fun, beautiful photos!
We loved working with Matt & Liz! Throughout the year, they were awesome to work with. Responsive and professional while being laid back and helping us to feel at ease. On the wedding day, they were amazing! They were present when needed but had a way of disappearing. We had no idea they were around for such intimate shots of the ceremony and dance floor. And I should mention that they went above the call of duty. Liz helped my family with my dress and taught many of us about boutonnieres ;-) Our photos are gorgeous and we had 35 images to share with our friends and family by the next day! I cannot recommend them more.
Seriously, Hinkley Photo was incredible! They made us feel so at ease. They were so organized and true professionals through and through. Their work was absolutely stunning and we couldn't be happier with the variety of gorgeous shots that we received. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a professional and personalized experience! Their photography is full of natural light, beautiful colors and stunning angles. I could go on and on! Loved our experiences with them and would use them again in a heartbeat!
The Hinkleys are amazing! I couldn't recommend them more highly. They are fun, responsive, organized, incredibly prompt, and extremely talented at what they do. We loved working with them, all the way from our engagement photos through our wedding. We are so happy with all of the photos and the experience overall. They captured the natural beauty of the setting we were in along with many authentic moments from our wedding, which was exactly what we were looking for. Above all, they are wonderful people who not only help capture a special day, but also add a lot to the experience.
The Hinkleys are a dynamic duo! From our engagement session to our actual wedding day they were fun, easy going and great at taking pictures! They made the process super easy and helped us work through a wedding day timeline that worked for us. We would have chosen the Hinkelys no matter what venue we were at, but they are experts at Loon Mountain in Lincoln, NH. They ski there over the winter, have done countless weddings there so are very familiar with the staff, the best views and the logistics. Definitely consider them for your next upcoming event!
Everything about our experience with The Hinkleys was amazing! My husband is not a fan when it comes to having his picture taken and Matt and Liz made it painless for him. They were very easygoing and made us feel comfortable every step of the way. The photos that we got were nothing short of amazing! I highly recommend them and will definitely use them in the future.
I'm so in love with the Hinkley's work! It came out just like we imagined. They are extremely friendly, professional and did everything to make this happen for us. Our wedding photos came out amazing! I highly recommend checking their website and talking to them.
Wow! My husband was in charge of picking our photographer; and because he has experience in the wedding industry he immediately suggested the Hinkley's without hesitation. As soon as I visited their blog I was in love, their work is amazing and what you see on their website does not even do justice. Liz and Matt made our wedding day so much fun. While getting ready I hardly noticed Liz's presence however she still captured every intimate detail. From our first look, until the end of our reception, the Hinkley's made us feel comfortable, happy, and made sure they got every shot we wanted to remember our wedding. It was so wonderful to wake up the next morning to a sneak peak album full of photos (nothing more exciting as a bride!) Look no further, the perfect photographers are right here!
This review is long overdue (sorry Matt and Liz!) but life got in the way post wedding! Matt and Liz Hinkley are WONDERFUL and we are so happy they could join us for our wedding. We are not the most comfortable in front of a camera, but the Hinkleys made the entire process effortless. The complimentary engagement session gave us the perfect opportunity to meet Matt and Liz and feel comfortable. On the day of the wedding, Matt and Liz were everywhere, without you ever knowing it! The photos are gorgeous and truly capture the fun, love, and magic of the day. The best part is looking through all of the photos and seeing the moments that you might not have have been able to catch on the actual day. And on top of being awesome photographers, they were always there to lend a helping hand throughout the day (groomsmen fumbling with boutonnieres...!) Leading up to the wedding the Hinkleys were always quick to respond to any questions and helped keep us on track with organizing group photos and timing for the evening. I will forever cherish these photos! Thank you, Matt and Liz!!
Matt and Liz were, by far, among our favorite people to work with throughout our entire wedding planning process. My husband and I got married in September, after being engaged for a little over a year. From day one, the Hinkleys blew us away with their level of professionalism and incredibly fun, warm personalities. We chose to work without the Hinkleys largely because of their style: we had an outdoor wedding, and were drawn to the way Matt and Liz incorporate nature in their photography. Their photographs are absolutely stunning, but also seem very natural - as someone with a fine arts background, I really appreciated the high quality of their work. They are skilled at capturing special little moments and unique personality traits, as well as natural outdoor beauty. Both our wedding and and engagement photos turned out so beautifully; we could not be happier with them! On top of the quality, we were also extremely pleased with how easy Matt and Liz were to work with. They were organized, responded quickly, communicated proactively, and were so helpful on our actual wedding day as well, helping us figure out where to go and what to do (Liz even bustled my dress!). Their turnaround time for photos is also pretty quick - we received our finished wedding photos approximately two weeks after the wedding. Finally, it was such a pleasure getting to know Matt and Liz over the course of our engagement. When we first began working with them, they explained that they like to do an engagement session, included in their wedding package, as a way to get to know the couples they work with a little better. By the time of our wedding, it felt like we were working with two friends. They are both such genuine people, and it's clear that they love what they do. Obviously, I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the Hinkleys, and would highly recommend them!
The Hinkley's were everything and more with what we could have hoped for with photographers for our wedding. They are so down-to-earth and passionate about their work. Their photography captures the perfect moments and their touch is so natural and crisp! I could not speak more highly of our experience with them and would recommend them to absolutely everyone!!!
Liz and Matt were so fun and easy to work with. The pictures came out amazing and they will do anything to find a spot for a good picture. They are open to suggestions and have lots of great suggestions as well. Our wedding pictures came out amazing. They captured so many details and parts of the night. We enjoyed working with them so much that my sister is also using them for her wedding!
The Hinkley's were SO amazing! We loved all of our photos from our engagement session to our wedding. For two people that HATE taking photos, they made us feel relaxed and comfortable - all while capturing beautiful photos for us to remember those days forever! I can't recommend them enough!
Matt and Liz were awesome to work with for our wedding! From the very first time we talked to them, we knew we wanted them to capture our day. They are so friendly and down to earth, but are still very professional. Their work speaks for itself. They captured every little detail of our wedding day and our pictures are more than perfect. We had such a great time working with them and I highly recommend the Hinkley's to anyone looking for wedding photographers!
Holy moly, gorgeous! I have only seen a small fraction of our photos from our magical day, and I am totally blown away!! Every single shot is just so beautiful, as every moment of the day was! Something else we loved about the Hinkeys, was that there are very few times they placed people in certain spots for the shot. Most of the shots were authentic moments they captured, and that's exactly what we wanted!! Professional, yet laid back people- who were also super helpful with getting ready and keeping the night flowing (very importantly, they reminded us to cut the cake :) ). We can't thank them enough! I am hanging on the edge of my seat waiting to see the rest of the pictures!!
When I started researching different photographers I didn't realize how important it was to not only like the quality of the photos, but also the personalities of the photographers themselves. These are people that you share your wedding day with! The Hinkleys are definitely the full package. Matt and Liz were excellent to work with this past year and we love the quality, style, and amount of photos they took! They were so flexible from the very beginning of the process. We were able to Facetime with them for our first meeting (since we live in Boston). Then they came to Boston for our engagement photoshoot last fall... we thoroughly enjoyed our session with them and a quick dinner after. They were so easy to get along with, we almost forgot we were having our pictures taken! In June they traveled again to the NH Seacoast for our wedding. We did our wedding photos primarily all in one park and they were able to capture so many different backdrops from just one location. They were able to capture a lot of great candidates as well, from moments on the party bus to dancing after dinner! A preview/sampler of our photos were even ready for us by 7AM the morning after our wedding and the final photos only a few weeks later. They also have a really easy online based system to make payments through, view your photos and fill out any questions for the wedding day! I highly recommend the Hinkleys and definitely will use them for any family photos down the road.
Our experience working with Matt and Liz was absolutely outstanding! From the moment we made contact with them, I could sense their passion and love for their work. They were dedicated to getting to know us as a couple and documenting our engagement shoot and wedding day in a unique, special and beautiful way. They are organized and professional, while at the same time staying relaxed and FUN! They truly helped set the tone for the day, and I could not have been happier with my experience. More guests than I can count commented both on their stunning work and their friendliness and professionalism throughout. Thank you Matt and Liz - we will always be grateful for the memories you captured for us!
The Hinkleys were fantastic photographers for our wedding and engagement photos! We are very glad we found them, it was a pleasure working with Matt and Liz. They responded quickly to emails and calls, were prompt and professional, but also very friendly and easy to work with. They also had great suggestions for posing/placement and beautiful background settings for photos, which was great since my husband and I weren't really familiar or comfortable with posing for pictures before meeting them. They were also wonderfully flexible on our wedding day when the speeches/dances went longer than expected, talking to us about the timing and ok'ing the extra half hour with us. Also, we were very glad to have two photographers, this allowed for multiple angles of important moments of course, but also it was helpful to have one of them near us, describing the pose we were aiming for while the other took pictures from farther away. Finally, they were very fast in editing the photos - we were able to share a few dozen pictures the day after the wedding, and the full album was ready right when they said it would be. Overall, the Hinkleys were fantastic and our wedding and engagement photos are beautiful!
We had experienced the work from the Hinkley's at one of our friend's weddings prior to ours, and were very impressed. The upfront planning, engagement session, and wedding day were handled professionally and promptly. They were a lot of fun to work with and it was a pleasure getting to know them. We had great feedback from our guests how they were non-intrusive to the wedding during all of the day's events, but still managed to capture the day perfectly. We are very pleased with the results and would highly recommend the Hinkley's for your special day!
Matt and Liz are lovely to have around, calm and professional and very "together." That is SO important on your wedding day-- they made everything easy and fun, and the photos turned out great. Photography is a big cost in the wedding, and we were HAPPY to write the check to this lovely couple. You're happy giving money to such nice, talented people!
Wow... Just. Wow. This husband and wife team are so much more than I could have ever asked for. I was referred to the Hinkley's by and friend, and now I know why. Their photographs are like nothing I have ever seen. They made my husband and I so comfortable and captured so many perfect moments. Once you meet them in person, you will know they care about your wedding and will make sure you're more than happy with the end result. The prints and the people are fantastic, definitely worth reaching out to them at the very least!
The Hinkleys are an amazing husband/wife duo of photographers that make a great team and feed off eachother's creative energy and the energy of the venue. They have a wonderful eye for the scenery and incorporating their subjects (us - the bride and groom) into the "bigger picture." I loved this about all their photos on their website portfolio, and was so happy they worked this talent of theirs into their photos for our wedding as well. The Hinkleys have a great energy about them - they are positive and easily blend into the wedding. Before the event, they were extremely responsive - we FaceTimed and completed a survey so we could provide them with anything unique about our event, a "shot list" of pictures that were important to us, etc. They also offered to meet us in person before the wedding so we would feel comfortable with one another (we planned the wedding from a few states away, so the offer to travel to meet was much appreciated). Not only did they ask for our input, they made sure to achieve everything we asked for. They were flexible in letting us add another hour to our package so we could have a sparkler send off. Not to mention they had a preview of our photos up on their blog less than 12 hours after our event! It was amazing to have a link to send out to family and friends so quickly! The Hinkleys are great at suggesting things based on their experiences. We weren't sure whether we wanted to do a first look, and they encouraged us for a number of reasons -- including so that we could enjoy our cocktail reception with guests rather than be stuck doing photographs. They care about the bride and groom experience! Liz was also so wonderful helping me with my jewelry, bustle, veil, etc. I know this is not normally a photographer's job, but she is so positive and willing to help, and she really made me feel at ease. I would absolutely recommend The Hinkleys!
Matt and Liz are absolutely amazing!!! We could not have asked for two better photographers and people to work with! I found The Hinkley's through a friend, seeing the photos they took at that wedding I was instantly attracted to their work. They were so accommodating straight from the beginning, especially because my husband and I live in NJ and have pretty busy schedules but they made scheduling our engagement session a breeze. When we suggested going to a local brewery for our engagement shoot they were all about it! The one thing I truly wanted to be perfect was the photography, I wanted to be able to look back at my photos 10 years from now and feel all the same emotions I felt on our wedding day. Matt and Liz went above and beyond to make that dream possible! They captured every possible moment from the details that I worked so hard on, the beautiful scenery and most importantly the candid's of our wild dance floor!! I will definitely look to Matt and Liz for any future photography needs! :-)
