You deserve beautiful photographs

Picture this (no pun intended), 10 years down the road and you are at home. It’s your anniversary and you’re waiting for your S/O to finish getting ready. You notice your wedding album and you start to look through your big day. Will you be proud of your heirlooms? You want to feel pure bliss, while you're looking through those pages filled with moments in time. Grandma holding your face. Dad crying as he sees you for the first time in your dress. Your now husband/wife breaking it down on the dance floor with a drink in their hands. These are emotional and sentimental moments in your life that you will always want to be able to look back on, and be 110% proud of. That's why you are here. Hello friend, my name is Hernan and I would be honored to be a part of your big day.

Let me make this very simple for you. If you are lucky enough to have Hernan available for your wedding date, book him immediately!! He is absolutely amazing...truly world class. What can you expect from Hernan? First and foremost, the most beautiful photos of your... Read More wedding. And I'm talking about classy, artistic, fashion magazine-caliber pictures. My (now) wife and I are from NYC and have many artistic, photographer friends. Hernan is the best of the bunch. Second, you can expect amazing service. Hernan always made a point to respond on the same day of ANY inquiry or call. This level of responsiveness is impressive considering how busy he is and how important it is for you to coordinate all the moving parts of your special day. Third, you can expect a caring person who understands how important this decision and day is to you....and who reciprocates with equal care to make sure your day is perfect. As evidence, I think it appropriate to describe just how much Hernan cares. My wife and I had a specific photo scene we wanted midway through the wedding. Unfortunately, mother nature had other plans the evening of our wedding. Hernan gladly traveled multiple hours the following day just to make sure we were able to capture this one specific photo!! How caring and amazing is that?/ I know you have many choices for photographers and it can be quite stressful. But if you are lucky enough to book Hernan, it will be a decision you will be grateful to have made forever!!

Hernan is top of the line! There is a reason his photography stands out - he is a truly caring person. People throw around words like genuine and authentic a lot, but Hernan is the epitome of such praise. My wife and I did an engagement shoot with Hernan up in Chicago. Even... Read More though it was our first time meeting in person, immediately we felt like we were just hanging out with a friend and we still keep in touch often with Hernan today. We are so thankful to have received such great pictures and equally so a great friend.

If I could give more stars I would! Hernan was such a wonderful photographer! From the very beginning he made my fiance and I comfortable. He asked questions about us as a couple to try and get to know us even better and truly made an effort to listen to our requests up to and... Read More throughout the day.

My wife and I found Hernan while searching website and requested a quote from him. Once the quote arrived we decided we like what we heard and went ahead and Skyped. From our first conversation you could see his interest in getting to know who he was going to photograph. He... Read More has a very easy to talk to personality and fun to be around. He constantly kept communication with us as the wedding date got closer. The day of the wedding you almost felt like he was another pier at the wedding, very respectful of the guests but also very firm to the fact that he was there to capture all the moments for us to cherish for life. Everything went according to plan and if you're looking to hire someone with a great charisma and professional quality, Hernan is your guy!

This photographer quickly became a very close friend. I reached out to him while our family was on vacation in Naples and he took some family shots. I have never been more impressed with a photographer. After a half an hour of knowing him, he got into the ocean to get a picture... Read More I really wanted before we left. His pictures just don't compare to others. Not only is he easy to work with but also wants to make every moment he captures for you special. I would recommend him to anyone for any occasion as he has captured numerous moments for me.

My husband and I actually met Hernan in a juice bar actually. My vow renewal was approaching and I was discussing with my husband how I wasn't impressed with the photographer we selected. Hernan over heard us and the questions started immediately! When all was said and... Read More done we decided to fly him out to Michigan to capture our vow renewal. My husbands family and our friends were a bit apprehensive but once they met Hernan, they fell in love with his attitude and how much he engaged everyone he photographed. Hernan doesn't simply take photos, he unravels a story with images. My sister viewed my wedding photos and with each image, she could read every emotion she was feeling and recall how we both felt the day of. Capturing these moments is priceless to me because we don't have many photos from our past. I would highly recommend Hernan to anyone, not only is his work amazing but he is genuinely a good natured guy who isn't capturing a special day, he infuses good intentions into every detail.

Hernan was the second shooter for our wedding and did an amazing job! He was funny and we really liked that he was always looking for a non-obvious angle and had fresh shot ideas at the drop of a hat. Would recommend him to any and everyone! Thank you Hernan! :)

We somehow had the fortune to stumble into Hernan as our second photographer, and I still don't understand how we got that lucky. Hernan is an incredibly fun guy who is funny, maybe a little nerdy (which in my world is awesome), and has an amazing eye for photography. He became...

I encourage you to check out his Instagram- you won't regret asking Hernan to take photos of your special event!!
