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! :-)
Do yourself a favor and don't think, just book the Hinkley's! Our journey with Liz and Matt was delightful from beginning to end. We heard through friends and family they were the best in our area (Lakes Region, NH), so they were one of the first photographers we contacted. They responded immediately and we hopped on the phone for almost 2 hours just getting to know each other and talk wedding details. Our engagement shoot was included in the price, which is a genius idea because you get to know Matt and Liz, so on the big day its like having more friends around! My husband and I are not center of attention types, so we were a little apprehensive about the engagement shoot - but it simply felt like we were hanging out with some friends in a park for the afternoon. Ending the day with lunch and beers was a bonus :-) They were nothing short of amazing on our wedding day. It's super fun to have a husband/wife couple because they can split up for the "getting ready" shots and get pics from all the best angles! Matt and Liz are so calm and stress-free. They are insanely organized, so the timing all worked perfectly. The shots are just incredible, and I cannot wait to get albums printed. I also want to point out how easy it is to interact with their website. They have a very sophisticated setup going - from info, to payment, to photo posts and downloads. Most vendors barely have a functioning email address, let alone a completely interactive website. My only regret is not also booking them for our rehearsal night! Matt & Liz : thanks again for everything. I can't wait till we can work together again!
Hinkley photo was our best decision as far as wedding vendors go. Matt and Liz were so easy to work with from scheduling time for the engagement pics to answering all our questions along the way and making us feel comfortable in front of the camera. They were super responsive, professional and fun too! They make it feel effortless and then come back with incredible photos that we couldn't wait to show our friends and family. The quality of their photos is the best of the best, but what impressed us most was their speedy turnaround time. They had a few dozen of our wedding photos up online the very next morning. Being able to re-live the big day before heading on our honeymoon and to share pics with family, friends and coworkers who couldn't be there was such a nice thing that I hadn't even expected. We were blown away again when they had all of our wedding photos beautifully retouched and delivered to us within weeks of the big day! I highly recommend Hinkley to any bride and groom on the search for a wedding photographer!
Matt and Liz are the best!Reviewed on 10/20/2015 Melissa R
There aren't enough words to say how amazing Matt and Liz are. When we booked them I told my husband photography was one thing I wasn't budging on. I found the Hinkleys and immediately fell in love with their photos. It was more about being in the moment than posing. They are also great at capturing the views and backgrounds to make the bride and groom pop in a photo, not just focusing completely on the couple and nothing else. From the first time talking to Matt and Liz to them leaving after the reception it was perfect. They were so happy and easy to talk to, had so many great ideas and suggestions, and made my husband and I feel like we were hanging out with friends. I'm happy to say we made new friends. Everything I asked or suggested they had no problem doing and they even came to my house and hotel to get the before pictures. And to top it off we had an amazing sneak peak when we woke up in the morning and 40 more "sneak peaks" 2 days later. Its safe to say I cannot wait for the rest of my pictures. I love Matt and Liz and if you want easy, smart, creative photographers you will not find any better!!
We couldn't have been happier with the Matt and Liz throughout the entire wedding process! From the very beginning they were down to earth, easy-going and willing to work with our budget. They went above and beyond; whether it was making us feel at ease in front of the camera, holding heels or pinning on boutonnieres, they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and stress-free on the big day. Not only were the photos fantastic, but they were extremely fast with their turnaround time. We couldn't have been happier with our decision to have the Hinkley's shoot our engagement session and wedding!
Great photographers!Reviewed on 9/29/2015 Jacqui C
The Hinkleys are a great husband wife photography team. My engagement and wedding photo have tuned out turned out completely amazing. They were great at using the natural beauty around us to enhance our photos dramatically. They also gave us a sneak peak by releasing 40 or so photos the very next day! I also highly recommend the Photo Booth they do, it's a unique and clever way of getting people to line up to funny pictures! I highly recommend them for any occasion but in particular for weddings!
We would highly recommend the Hinkleys. We used them as our wedding photographers, and their pictures were absolutely beautiful. They were very friendly, responsive, easy to work with, reasonably priced, and turned our pictures around really quickly.
WE LOVE THE HINKLEYSReviewed on 8/24/2015 jackie n
WE LOVE THE HINKLEYS!!! Liz and Matt are absolutely phenomenal people and photographers. Our wedding photos are beautiful, and we have received so many complements about our photos and the Hinkelys. Liz and Matt go above and beyond, Liz helped my mom bustle my dress and Matt helped all the groomsmen with their boutonnieres. We ordered a guest book for our wedding though the Hinkelys after our engagement session and it's stunning. It was such a nice addition to our wedding, and it looks beautiful. I know our wedding album will be equally as amazing. We were lucky enough to have the video booth! Our guests could not get enough of it! It was a really fun addition to the reception and I would HIGHLY recommend checking them out and booking one for yourself. It is such a nice memory to have from our wedding and our guests can't get enough of it and are watching it all the time. Matt made the video booth so much fun and the Hinlkeys brought props for us to use. Liz and Matt are great people and we were so happy they were able to be part of our wedding. If you choose them as your photographers you will never be disappointed. Your wedding is a once and a lifetime event and your pictures are what you have to remember it. Check out the Hinleys and I guarantee you will be thrilled!
SO NICE!Reviewed on 8/04/2015 Nan G
Matt and Liz were so nice and easy to work with. We loved the pictures! They worked so quickly, I never felt like I was pulled away to miss any of the wedding. They completely understood what types of pictures we wanted. I would recommend them to anyone.
Matt & Liz rock!Reviewed on 6/17/2015 Frances H
Matt & Liz Hinkley were extraordinarily professional, flexible, fun to work with, and the photos were stunning. Their package is not cheap, but in my opinion it was totally worth it. I barely noticed them on our wedding day, and they managed to get some of the most beautiful candid shots of everyone and the venue space. Their turn-around time was unbelievably fast - we had a preview available at 8am the morning after the wedding(!) and the complete set of edited photos in a little over 2 weeks. They give you full digital rights to share/use/print the photos for personal use, which was a definite must for me when I was booking. Bonus: Liz even saved me before the ceremony by noting that the belt on my dress had come undone and she whipped a safety pin out of her bag to fix it!
