My husband and I were married in October 2015 on the island of Kauai. I spent months planning the wedding remotely from California, and as all the pieces were coming together, I still had not found a photographer. Wedding photography on the islands can be tricky as it is no... Read More secret that your options are somewhat limited in Hawaii. We were beginning to worry that we would have to choose between quality and price, until we considered HumanArtwork Photography for our destination wedding. Henry and Traci photographed my sister’s wedding the previous year and did an incredible job. We reached out to them and they offered us a great package deal. Henry and Traci's rates are more than reasonable, but taking into account all of the amazing photos of our wedding, my husband and I feel like we got an amazing deal. Henry and Traci were there every step of the way to calm nerves and set the stage to take the most beautiful photos possible. Henry is great at capturing fine details and emotion while Traci always comes up with different angles and creative shots to ensure nothing is missed on the big day. Traci is also able to provide a female touch and makes sure your dress is in perfect shape, there are no stray hairs on your face, and other fine details. Henry and Traci are fun to be around and make for great company. It felt like we had two additional friends at our wedding that just so happened to be taking pictures of us the whole time. I was so worried about photography and by the time the big day had finally arrived, it last thing on my mind. I trusted Henry and Traci every step of the way and now have over 1,000 pictures from our big day and LOVE every single one of them. My entire family has now designated them as the family photographers and will be using them for every occasion from here on out.

Our wedding photos exceeded our expectations. They were absolutely beyond perfect. Henry is the best photographer and working with him was so easy. We met at our venue and went through pricing and what we wanted for our wedding day. He includes an engagement photo session, but... Read More we had already done ours so he offered to shoot our rehearsal dinner which was perfect and extremely nice of him. He worked with our schedule and there was never any difficulty the entire time we worked together. His photos are beautiful and well thought out. He told us when we first met he liked to shoot more emotions than posed photos which is exactly what we wanted, but we were still able to get a ton of posed photos with family and the bridal party. The photos came out so beautiful and you can tell they are high quality. I could not have asked for a better experience or better outcome. Hire Henry if you want beautiful photos!!!

Henry from Human Artwork did my engagement pictures and my wedding photos and I was very pleased with his work. His style of photography is very creative and makes for very dramatic photos. We did our engagement shoot on the sand dunes of Pismo Beach and they were breathtaking!... Read More Henry also has a gift at capturing touching candid moments... some of the photos from my wedding brought tears to my eyes. He also did my sister's wedding and she had a much larger bridal party than I did ( 1 vs 9). Even with all the girls, not to mention the groomsmen, he captured wonderful moments with the bride in the bridal suite and with everyone together with our family. I would say the most interesting thing about Henry's style is that he is invisible. To the point where you are left wondering if he was even around for the wedding! But lo and behold, once the photos come in you realize that he was actually everywhere and just blends in seamlessly. He is affordable compared to others in the industry but you get way more than what you pay for. Thanks Henry!

Now for my review of our final product, to say we are happy with the final product would be a HUGE understatement. They captured so many beautiful and candid moments, reactions from family, smiles and tears I didn't get the chance to see, all the emotions, dancing, and the essence of our special day. The video's quality is absolutely breathtaking. We had well over 30 people that saw our video tell us it was the best wedding video they had ever seen. The quality of the video and the scenes captured really cannot be beat. This team is the best!

When I pressed 5 stars it stated "Wow, the best ever!" and it's exactly right! My husband and I got married back in 2013, but we still get compliments on our wedding photos. We got married in California but live in Texas, so we were very nervous to go with a photographer who... Read More we'd only communicated with online and over the phone. However, it was the best decision ever! Our pictures so exceeded my expectations. Henry captured every detail, and every photo came out amazing. We did an engagement shoot ahead of time, and those pictures were awesome too. To top it off, we got back together the day after our wedding to take just a few more pictures, which actually ended up being my favorite. We were extremely rushed the day of the wedding, and we had a huge wedding party, so things were hectic. Henry went above and beyond, made us feel so comfortable and natural (my husband and I are not naturally super photogenic people) and captured our wedding day perfectly. I can't say enough. You will not regret hiring Henry to photograph your wedding. He's truly talented.

Henry is amazingly talented and we were more than enthusiastic about the shots he captured of our wedding. All of our family and friends have commented on the high quality of the photos. He definitely has an artistic eye and is an extraordinary painter of light. Our sunset... Read More couple shots at the beach look magical, particularly one shot in which the waves crashed upon the rock we were leaning against. I am not a photographer myself, but I know enough about photography to know that the light situation was challenging while he was taking our family portraits (midday) and reception shots (dark, outside backyard), and they turned out beautifully. If we had to do it all over again, we would choose Henry to be our photographer again. There would only be a couple things we would change. Firstly, we would probably hire him and his wife for another hour or two. Secondly, I highly recommend doing the engagement shoot with him so he get's to know you as a couple and what you want captured during your wedding. We did not do an engagement shoot, but I now regret it. Our wedding was very much a "do-it-yourself" type of wedding in which my cousin made the beer, my other cousin made the cake, and my family/friends made decorations. I would have liked to have photos of my cousin serving his beer, or my other cousin standing by the cake, etc. Now I know that I should have asked specifically for those shots, as well as more shots on the details of the wedding/decor. I did have to ask specifically to take pictures of the wedding cake, which I thought would be a given. I think if we had met with him before, we could have covered those details. The only other critique is that he does an incredible job with photographing people and poses, but sometimes misses some details. In some of my portrait shots I had a string hanging out from my dress by my armpit (the loop that is used to hang the dress) which was visible in the photos. Nobody told me about it until the two young videographers saw it after the ceremony. When I received the photos back from Henry, they were beautiful, but the string was visible and was not touched up. I had to use photoshop myself to erase it. We also had to wait much longer than what was stated in the contract (3 months) to receive the photos. I completely understand how long it takes to edit photos because my sister does a lot of that herself. But I think it would have been more professional to let customers know that the wait will be 3-6 months, just so they have an idea of what to expect. These are all relatively minor things that in no way ruined our experience. We just learned what we would do differently next time. But we both are soooo happy with the photograph's and would hire Henry in an instant if we were to do it again. I have recommended him to all family and friends that are interested in a wedding photographer. He is amazingly talented and you won't be disappointed if you hire him.

Read More photographers in addition to, of course, their amazing portfolio. We were originally going to have our engagement photos done in Colorado, but we're so glad we decided to shoot them in Santa Barbara with Henry. Though he was totally unfamiliar with the two spots that we chose, he was able to take a quick glance at the lighting/scenery and come up with so many amazing shots. He helped us with our poses until we felt more comfortable and at ease, and then he let us free, lol. We had so much fun that we ended up practically swimming in the ocean (awesome pics!!). Many of our poses were not still poses, but Henry was able to capture our genuine expressions and playfulness while we were tossing each other into the waves. On top of that, he timed and adjusted each shot so that he could capture all the fine detail in the waves and splashes of water. We had some time before sunset, so Henry patiently waited for the perfect minute to shoot the last of the pictures. I'm not the best at describing artwork, but these are some of the comments I have gotten on Henry's work: "Pardon ne moi" my French but these are EFFING breathtaking!" "You can def feel the love with these." "I'm so excited for your wedding! You have an amazing photographer!" If you're looking for a genuine pair who is truly passionate about photography and treat their customers as friends, I recommend that you give HumanArtwork a shot! Don't miss out!! :)
