As a part-time professional portrait photographer with very high standards, I spent several months researching wedding photographers for my daughters wedding. As my (paid) lighting assistant growing up, she's just as picky. Those who fit my budget didn't make the grade style-wise and those that did were simply over-priced for what you get. When I finally came across Harrison's website, his style was unique and polished, he shoots both digital and film provides high res files and digital scans. He fit our budget so we interviewed him and booked him 6 months in advance. The venue was Sassi in Scottsdale for about 100 in total. Harrison was punctual, professional, hit every pose on his list along with several ad-hock poses spontaneously put together by family. In regards to the review by Anita, we arranged and paid for meals for ALL our vendors in advance (5 in total minus the string quartet who left after the ceremony) to make sure they were all well fed and could last the ~8 hrs of working a wedding. Harrison did his thing throughout the day and night, starting with first look, wedding party shots, ceremony, family portraits, post ceremony bride/groom, and details like the table settings, dress, rings, cake, venue and environmental shots, etc. Harrison didn't miss a thing including taking pics of every guest/couple at the reception. In total, we were provided over 900 high-res digital photos that I can use as-is as they were all properly exposed, cropped and categorized AND I can edit them using Lightroom or Photoshop to suit my taste if I liked. There were about 50 'keepers' that will make the wedding album and a few absolutely stunning photo's that I will canvas or metal large as a gift to my daughter. I have absolutely no regrets choosing Harrison and would recommend him to any of my friends or family.

We were forewarned if we hired Harrison (H), to be sure there was a second shooter. Hindsight, we should have heeded the dire forecasts more seriously. Our wedding was tiny, and easy for any professional. He arrived confused and apathetic. We had to tell him what shots to start taking, as he was standing around, seemingly without direction or purpose. Though H had told us he had worked at the hotel numerous times in the past, it certainly wasn’t reflected in our pictures. All of our group photos have patio furniture in the background (because who wouldn’t want orange striped hotel lawn chairs in their wedding photos? sigh), are all back-lit from the sun so everyone’s hair is glowing,., etc. It was like absolutely no care was put into setting up shots. We were surprised at how H provided zero direction or forethought for setting up shots. It was truly like he showed up, turned on a digital camera, and whatever was in his camera frame, he snapped. There were many shots that could have been lovely, except he didn’t take the time or effort to set up the pictures or pose anyone, so there are odd things in the background, body parts are cut off, etc., heck, we don’t even have one picture of our cake that doesn’t have part of it or the stand cut off. Then there are the pics never taken.. Lastly, during cocktails, Harrison asked if he could eat off the buffet. Now, I have no problem feeding vendors who are working a long day, but he had been there for 2.5 hours at this point (out of 4), and it was exceptionally unprofessional to ask to eat the guests food while our guests were still enjoying the reception. I cried for weeks when we got the proofs, as we have a scant handful of marginal photos, and the dramatic majority unusable. The pictures that H took are a 180 from his portfolio, and what was promised. We wish we had better vetted our photographer, paid more attention to his reputation (& how old his online reviews were), and gone with a different choice.

Harrison definitely has an eye for what the camera wants, his photos are of great quality and he does wonderful work. We used him for our engagement photos as well as wedding photos. I like that he uses digital and film, not many people are using film these days so it was nice to have the different look of both. I was really happy with how the pictures we got turned out. The only thing I was a little displeased with was that after the wedding during picture time and cocktail hour, he seemed a little disorganized. I had to make suggestions and gather people together because we only had an hour. We ended up getting no posed photos of the whole wedding party and just a few of me, my children and my husband together. I would have liked to have more of those. I felt like if he had an assistant or second photographer this would have helped a lot. Harrison reassured us that because our wedding party was small and we only had 80 guests that he could handle this with ease. But after the fact I feel like he needed someone to help him out, it was a little stressful for me trying to gather people and try and keep track of what photos we still needed to take (such as the wedding party photos that we never took). I think he does a great job with the individual shots of me and my husband but overall I was disappointed that we didn't get the group photos that I wanted as well as the more fun creative photos that I have seen other photographers take to capture the fun spirit of the day.

I loooooved Harrison's artistic style when I looked at his website, and so we chose him for our wedding and we couldn't be happier with how it all came out! Both in artistry (what I really wanted), and in capturing the entirety of the event. Harrison, Michelle, and his second shooter at our main event did truly awesome work, and I would recommend them to anyone. Also, I barely remember seeing him at the wedding at all, and yet he/they still captured EVERY moment... fully present and on it, yet zero distraction from the experience itself. Love the candids! Love the artistic shots!! And love that our whole story was captured and we have loads of "regular" digital shots as well. (He send everything to you digitally, even the film shots he takes are then turned into mega high-resolution digital copies for you, it's awesome.)

OH and I personally did a 1-on-1 photo shoot with Harrison for my business as well, he shot in film for that (I love the vintage, cross-processed work he does), and they came out amazing as well. I brought my own creative vision to this shoot and he was happy to work together on that vision. With the wedding/engagement shoots, I gave him a general sense of what I/we loved, and he found literally the perfect locations for each shoot. I mean, just awesome.

Super grateful for the whole experience, and most highly recommend!!! Thank you, Harrison and Michelle! :D

Harrison captured wonderful moments from my wedding and I can't say enough how much we enjoyed working with him. He and Michelle provide high quality services and products which explains why they don't charge the lowest rates. I firmly believe you get what you pay for and I was not going to take a risk with my big day.

We knew Harrison Hurwitz was amazing from our first meeting with him. We asked him if he would be willing to take a road trip with us for our engagement photos to Prescott. He agreed and that was the beginning of our fabulous relationship with Harrison. Our engagement photo session was unbelievable and when we received the photos from him we knew that he was the best wedding photographer because the photos were so distinctive and special. Harrison is able to capture the feeling you have about your wedding on film which is a unique quality. He made all of my wedding picture dreams come true. We have so many one of a kind photos from our engagement pictures and wedding pictures that we cannot decide which ones to frame. Harrison is without a doubt the best wedding photographer in Phoenix and maybe the world. He is professional and listens to the type of photos you want from both the bride and groom. He is worth every penny and if you are looking for wedding photos that will take your breath away he is the photographer for you. We plan to use him for the rest of our lives in our family portraits, which he also does. Harrison will be the best vendor choice you can make for your wedding.
