Rachel and Michael are the kind of warm and thoughtful couple who email after a chilly engagement shoot to make sure I didn’t get a cold. That’s when you know you’re truly a blessed wedding photographer.

Their wedding was at the stunning Bourne Mansion in Oakdale, New York. Although it rained at the beginning, the gorgeous interior of the venue made sure that their photos turned out beautifully. And once the sun set, the rain subsided, and so we went out for some outdoor night shots.

"Hanel's service for our wedding was absolutely phenomenal. He has a keen eye for photography and his talent and passion truly shows in the photos that he took for our wedding and engagement session. His professionalism is unrivaled as is his skill for photography. He is not only dedicated but patient and kind and goes above and beyond in ensuring that we were perfectly happy with the quality of the photos and the locations where the photos were taken. With all the things that we needed to worry about for the wedding, photography was not one of them because we knew that we could count on Hanel."
