Tell me about your wedding! I am a friendly, laid-back, creative photographer that likes to do something different at every wedding - because every couple is different, unique and special. I get excited about your wedding and want all the details! I will meet in person, scope your locations, discuss your photo options as many times as you want. On the day of your wedding, I have fun but try to stay unobtrusive as possible to get the best photojournalistic photos to really tell the story of the day...until it comes time for the portraits which I do in a relaxed, fun and creative way that doesn't take up your whole day! A few weeks after the wedding, you will get a link to view your photos online. Then the printing fun begins! Choose from a wide array of albums, prints, canvases, cards and more to display one of the best days of your lives! Read less

From start to finish, Caitlin was fantastic to work with! My husband and I looked at a lot of "cookie-cutter" and "big business" photographers until we got a recommendation for Caitlin. Once we met with Caitlin, we picked her right away! She was fabulous at making everything go smoothly! She had all of the timing for the day perfect and made sure to capture all of the moments! We have so many fantastic pictures to look through and are having a hard time choosing favorites! She made sure to get a variety of pictures (candid, posed, large-group) and each one is unique! We LOVE Caitlin and would recommend her to anyone! You would not be disappointed!

I am thrilled that we chose Caitlin Hazelton to be our wedding photographer! Working with her was as easy as setting up one face to face meeting and making all other arrangements via e-mails and paperwork that outlined the wedding day. She and her assistant were very friendly and flexible throughout the day. I was impressed with how they just blended into the crowd. They were efficient when it came to family photos in the church and they were creative in taking photos in the park that we chose. We also used her "faux-to booth" which was an absolute blast for our guests and wonderful value in terms of photobooth options. If you want stress-free and creative photography, definitely go with Hazelton! She is worth every penny!

We were so happy with the venue of Venutis in Addison. Our photographer Hazelton photography was amazing. Even being due the next weekend with a baby Caitlin didn't miss a beat. Kio Kreations made beautiful flower arrangements. Chair Couture did an awesome job with all of the linens and Weddings by Denise made or ceremony so personal and one to be remember! What a great day! Couldn't have picked any better vendors to use. Amazing!

Our wedding was in the winter and in a beautiful, large space with many details. We were looking for a photographer who would be able to photograph in low light/night and would be able to capture the beauty of the venue (Ballroom at The School of The Art Institute) while not distorting the people. Caitlin came through! Our photos are simply stunning and many are fitting for a bridal magazine. My mother even commented that our faces and body language that were captured in the pictures were just exactly as she remembered experiencing watching us that day. We are grateful to have such special memories captured so discretely and yet perfectly. Thank you!

Caitlin is the best. I have used her before, and so have all my friends and family...and we will continue to use her and her amazing team again and again for all our photography needs. Her eye and attention to detail is second to none - artful, dramatic, fun -- always beautiful. I like that I never have to worry about explaining myself twice on what I want to accomplish - she can always see the vision and make it better than you imagined. She also makes TAKING photos relaxed and enjoyable - even for the most camera shy. THANK YOU HAZELTON PHOTOGRAPHY!

My husband and I are so pleased with the service we received from Hazelton Photography! We knew Caitlin was a good match for us from the first time we met at her studio-- she is very warm, funny, and artistic. She was always willing to answer any questions we had during our nearly 2 year engagement. We decided to do an engagement photo session with Caitlin a year before our wedding (which I highly recommend for couples, to get comfortable with your photographer and with being photographed!), and we were so happy with how our photos turned out. Once our wedding day arrived, both Caitlin and her associate photographer, Missy, were prompt and very well prepared and used to dealing with the chaos of the day! They seemed to know exactly which shots to take throughout the day, and we are so happy with the results. Rather than the stiff, posed shots you sometimes get at weddings, Caitlin and Missy provided us with works of art, filled with all the warmth and special moments our wedding day held for us. We will cherish our photos for many years to come!

Caitlin Hazelton is an amazing photographer and incredibly easy to work with. I was so lucky she was available for my wedding date, and I have beautiful photos to show for it!

When I started my journey to find a wedding photographer I really had no idea where to begin. I’ve never hired a professional photographer before, and when I’m faced with spending money on something I’m not familiar with, I do A LOT of research first.

So I went about the task of finding someone to document the most meaningful day of my life. I looked through dozens of photographer’s blogs and websites, and somewhere along the line I found Caitlin’s. I was immediately drawn to the soft, romantic images that always seemed to capture the perfect moment. But since I’m an analytical person who is extremely through, I felt I had to interview at least three candidates to make sure I was covering all possibilities and not missing anything.

Even though in my heart I knew she was the one for me, my analytical nature had to be extra sure that she was the best of the bunch, so I had two friends who are marketing executives take a look at her work along with the galleries of my other candidates. Their response was overwhelmingly in favor of Caitlin’s work over the others, as they immediately recognized her exceptional talent and artistic eye.

I have the most amazing shots from my wedding day and my husband and I couldn’t be happier! Caitlin was so friendly and reassuring, but unobtrusive at the same time. And during the whole process of putting together my album Caitlin has been so generous with her time (and on the flip side, understanding of my lack of time), she has been patient and gracious with all of my questions and requests, and her work is absolutely beautiful. Be sure to check out her nighttime shots when you look at her galleries – truly magical. I highly recommend Caitlin and would hire her again and again.

Caitlyn provides the perfect balance of artistry and necessity in her wedding photos. She has an amazing eye. Her ability to communicate and listen to us as a couple made all the difference so that we could get exactly what we wanted. Then she takes it to another level by "developing" the photos in whatever exposure or coloring works best. We would use her for any portraitry in the future. Our photos are incredible!

I absolutely loved my photographer! Caitlin Hazelton is extremely talented and has an excellent, calm and creative personality. She and her assistant, Missy, were extremely respectful during our Catholic wedding ceremony -something that was very important to us- and were sure to capture all of the moments that were important to us. The packages are reasonable priced for the quality and ours included an engagement session that resulted in many really beautiful pictures. I enjoyed getting to know her through this process as well. The only drawback is that you must be patient in waiting for the pictures to be processed as it takes some time and she is very busy!

Photography was my #2 most important thing for my wedding. I wanted to find someone who had a specific style of photography and I scoured photographers' websites for weeks before making my decision.

Working with Caitlin was great! She has a wonderful personality and her photographs are beautiful. Her price for her services are very competitive for the area and the service she offers.

About a month after the wedding we got a sneak peek of our photos. Caitlin gets booked quickly it seems and is busy constantly. The quality of photos is worth the wait though and we could not be happier with the memories we have of our special day! I hope to use Hazelton Photography in the future for other special photos! I'd recommend her to anyone!
