I love wedding photography. I do. The excitement and fun of the preparations, the drama of arriving at the ceremony, the music, the expressions on people's faces. I love the story, the sequence, the development of the day and I love documenting that story, all the little moments, all the details. Saved. Arriving at the reception, the introduction, the fun and excitement. It is an enormous privilege to be chosen to preserve those moments for now and the future. Think about it: to have the privelege of making something for someone that they will have and value all the rest of their lives. How many people get to do that? And the challange of capturing stunning, well lit, well composed, classic and candid images! I love it! It is always different, always exciting. I'd love to speak with you, learn about your plans and discuss how to capture the very best memories of your wedding and save them forever. Jim Read less

Our wedding was about three weeks ago and I couldn’t have been happier with Jim Hoops and his team from Beacon Hill Photography! Our family and friends have already seen all of the fabulous wedding shots they have provided for us! I have friends who used different photographers who have been waiting for months to see photos! We have so many frame worthy images! Our wedding day went so smoothly, the entire wedding party had a great time with Jim and his assistant. Besides producing great work, he brings great enthusiasm and energy to the event. Our wedding party commented on how fun he was to work with. If you find any photos you like or have ideas of photos you want taken, he will make sure to get them done! They work hard to get the right shot, from the best angle, with the most unique and interesting compositions. Not to mention, he does some great editing! He removed cars and objects from the backgrounds of some of our photos, making them our favorites! Beacon Hill Photography did an outstanding job and I can’t recommend them enough, we loved working with them!!! Thank you Jim!!! ~ Jessica

Jim was great! He had good reccommendations. He took the time necessary to explain the process to us. He was respectful of the ceremony and the church. He was technically proficient. He took the time to get to know us so that he could understand our style and what we like. Not cheap, but worth every penny.

Jim and his assistant photographed my wedding on 08/25/12 in Boston. Jim made the entire process really easy. Before we booked him, he showed us samples of his previous work and explained what makes his work the best. Jim was also really willing to work within our budget. We did an engagement shoot with Jim for free at a state park near his house! The pictures were great and we used them to decorate our reception.
Just before our wedding, when I was at my craziest, Jim sent us a packet with everything we needed to know and expect for our wedding. On our wedding day Jim really took charge and was able to get all of our family shots and plenty of couple only shots throughout our venue within 45 minutes so my husband and I could get a few minutes alone before the reception! He took all of pictures that we wanted and plenty of candid shots as well!
The day after our wedding, Jim posted a beautiful sample of our wedding pictures on FaceBook. We received all of our low-res digital negatives within a month of our wedding. It took us over a month to get back to Jim with our album selections, but within a couple of weeks of us selecting the pictures he already had an initial layout for us. After we commented on the layout, Jim had revised the layout, and sent it back to us within a day. I am really excited to get our real album!! I had a wonderful experience with Jim and I would recommend him to anyone! I have heard so many horror stories from brides who had a bad experience with their photographer. Jim was the complete opposite, he's organized, honest, and will take great pictures of your wedding that he will deliver as promised!!

Great decision!

We couldn't be happier that we chose Jim and Beacon Hill Photography for our wedding!

From beginning to end, Jim went above and beyond our expectations and made our wedding experience stress free (from the photography end at least). He met with us well before our wedding to discuss strategy, style, process, setting, etc. He was very patient, answered all of our questions and ensured we were on the same page. We couldn't believe Jim's patience and understanding as we had our 1-year old with us at all of our meetings and 1-year olds are not always quiet and don't mind interrupting.

Jim proactively contacted us again shortly before our wedding to confirm what we had previously discussed and to make sure we were happy with our plan. We really appreciated the "tips" he provided based on his experience to help make our day perfect.

Wedding day, Jim was punctual and professional. He delivered everything we discussed and went according to the plan we developed together. He directed us as needed, coordinated our bridal party and family so the formal pictures went quickly and we didn't need to worry about a thing. Again, he was very patient, professional, understanding and communicated throughout the day. He added value well above what we expected, especially with our favorite picture of the day, which was a candid in between "formal" photos.

After our wedding, Jim provided the facebook photos and digital prints exactly as promised and the quality and amount of the photos were tremendous. Every time we've reached out to Jim he responds quickly and promptly and he's made all of the time commitments he's given.

Pricing was very straightforward, easy to understand, and Jim was extremely competitive. Most importantly, we feel that Jim gave more value and our experience with him was worth more than he charged.

We highly recommend Jim.

I couldn't ask for anything more in a photographer. Jim was on time if not early to my wedding taking picture of me where I was getting dressed. He also had time to take pictures of the men. (I was running late...typical me !) I also had an assistance which was the best value of all. I recommend this to all brides it's worth the extra cost !! I got amazing backlit pictures.

Jim is personable and accessible. He took us to his studio and spent ample time with us developing our vision. He showed us many examples and listened well to get a sense of what style would suit us best. He offers a variety of packages to suit any budget, which we greatly appreciated. His retouching is excellent, and he is sensitive to the needs of a detail-oriented bride!

My husband and I could not be happier with our wedding pictures. It was a pleasure working with Jim from our first meeting through the completion of our album. The day of the wedding Jim and his assistant proved to be both professional and very helpful. Although all the traditional pictures are beautiful it is the little moments Jim caught that I love the most. We had such a difficult time picking our favorites we decided to increase the size of our album. We would definitely recommend Jim and Beacon Hill Photography for your special day.

Jim Hoopes is amazing to work with. He is genuine and real. He listened to all my suggestions and made sure I got the shots I wanted for my pictures. He is great at what he does and truly knows photography. Arelis, the photography assistant, and Paul, the videographer, also were great to work with. They all made my wedding day much more enjoyable. www.beaconhillphoto.com

I was so happy with this photographer. I paid a bit more because of things that I wanted. I have the most beautiful weeding album, it is not your traditional 24 8x10, though he will do that for you. I can't say enough wonderful things about my experience. Plus it included my video as well
