From my first meeting with Elena and Yan, I could tell they were just my type of couple. They immediately gave off the relaxed-yet-excited vibe when telling me about their wedding plans. I knew from that moment it was going to be one beautiful wedding, both sentimentally and visually.

Although Village Club of Sands Point has a gorgeous yard and garden for an outdoor ceremony and photos, it was one of those days when the weather had plans of its own. But that didn’t bring down the mood of excitement that Elena, Yan, and their amazing bridal party had, which translated to beautiful photos of celebration.

Additionally, Village Club has one of the most picturesque interiors of any venue I’ve been to, so creating all of the couple and bridal party portraits indoors was so inspired that I never really missed the outdoors.



"I cannot thank Hanel enough for the stunning photos of our wedding day! Hanel’s and his team’s professionalism actually added order to our other vendors as well, making our day run a little smoother... Hanel captured not only great posed stills, but also amazing candids... The photos have a photojournalistic feel and the quality is outstanding. They captured the joy, emotion and excitement of the day without feeling at all generic... Our biggest challenge has been picking our favorites to share with family and friends, because we love them all!"
