INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
In the darkest of churches, outside on the sunniest days at noon - name a lighting situation, and I've made great photos with it!
Is your media preference film or digital?
I'm comfortable with both digital and film and use both at every wedding. I always shoot the majority digitally and then throw in some black and white film for artistic effect.
How many photographers do you work with?
I have several in my network. Usually, when I'm the main shooter, I bring an assistant who shoots. I also have a network of photographers for back-up or whom I can hire out through my studio if I am booked for that day.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes! And I guarantee that I handle all the after-work and custom products.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never more than one in a day. Sometimes more than one in a weekend.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I have a network of photographers for back-up (which I've never yet had to use), in the very unlikely event that I'm physically unable to shoot on that day.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Multiple cameras, flashes, brackets, tripods, lighting gear, film, digital cards... and then extras!
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Of course!
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Packages include an hourly rate, if someone would like to add or subtract hours of coverage or for overtime.
Do you charge for travel?
Travel is included in package pricing.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
A selection are sent within the week. The rest are ready within 8 weeks from the wedding day.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Depends on what was requested in the package, but generally, a CD of images and a private, online gallery.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Forever!
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
I reserve the right to use the images in my advertising and portfolio. With the couple's permission, I might publish the images in a magazine.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes, which is password protected. The couple can send the gallery to their friends and families, if they desire, and they can order prints, for a nominal a la carte fee. The website is connected with a pro lab.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Matted, flush-mount and coffee-table.
When will the client get the final album?
Approximately 3 months after photos for the album are chosen.

We were looking for a non typical wedding photographer and we definitely found that with Hillary. Non typical meaning not the same old wedding shots you see over and over again. She made the entire process so easy for us with her organized shot sheets. Hillary and her assistant were so discreet you didn't even know they were at the wedding shooting you. She respected our time and knew we didn't want to spend the entire cocktail hour taking pics, so she worked with us in that aspect. The images we received back were amazing. The shots she took were exactly what we wanted...which included a modern vintage flare. I am so excited to begin putting together the shots for the album, which she also makes very easy. I would highly recommend Hillary to anyone.

Hillary did a beautiful job photographing my wedding. She was so sweet to work with, extremely professional and personable and we just had a lovely experience working with her from start to finish on our wedding day and beyond (with the print album and web-gallery). It was as if an old friend was taking our photos. She took direction extremely well and captured everything we wanted perfectly. I couldn't be happier to have such lovely memories of my special day. I highly recommend Hillary for any special event! I have even booked her for events through my job since I had such a positive experience for my wedding. Thank you, Hillary!!

Hillary is the absolute best! She made me feel like we were the most important wedding in the world! The quality of her pictures and creativity are so wonderful and I have them hanging around our whole house. Already from my wedding my friend who is engaged just booked Hillary as well. She helped keep me calm during the wedding and took such care before the wedding to calm my nerves and to talk over all ideas. She is just the best!!

Hillary was the first and only photographer that we met with to shoot our wedding and she made the decision very easy for us. Hillary and her entire team were a pleasure to work with and made the photography fun and easy. They were never intrusive during the wedding yet captured every shot that we could have asked for and more. From the first day we sat down for coffee to discuss our wedding until our photos were completed, Hillary was incredibly responsive and helpful and made it so that we never had to worry or stress about photos. Hillary goes over and above to ensure that she knows what the bride and groom want out of their photos. We would recommend her to anyone.

Within minutes of our initial meeting, my wife and I knew we wanted to hire Hillary. We told her wanted to focus heavily on candid shots, rather than posed, and her photojournalism background made her perfect for that task. She's professional yet easy going, upbeat and an absolute pleasure to work with. When a lot of issues swirled with other vendors, she was our constant. The photos came out great, by the way. Not long after the wedding she had them uploaded to a website for our review. We're very happy with the result, with her reasonable rates, and we look forward to getting the album. We've also recommended her to our friends.

Hillary Harvey was the only photographer we met with, mainly because we liked her work the best out of all the photographers' websites we looked at--and then her great personality was a wonderful surprise! Aside from those two big considerations for hiring a wedding photographer, she was quick to answer any emails I sent. She visited our site ahead of time to check out where the best spots for formal photos would be. Working with her the day of was a pleasure. She made everyone feel really comfortable, and she got any shots we wanted. I'm sure if you plan out photos ahead of time, she will honor your plan, but we were more of an unplanned kind of couple, so we decided as we went. She made sure that there were no awkward situations in terms of who got photographed with whom. So far (we were married 9/29/12), we have only seen a few photos that Hillary posted on facebook for us, and we love them. We are fairly positive we will be thrilled with the rest, and we are looking forward to working on our album!

From the moment we spoke with Hillary on the phone, we knew that she was the best choice for our wedding. Hillary is upbeat, enthusiastic, patient, down to earth, highly professional, and not to mention very skilled! My husband and I don't always enjoy having our pictures taken, but during our engagement shoot Hillary made us feel comfortable and we even had fun! That sense of comfort and trust really translated into our wedding photos-- which are gorgeous. Despite the fact that we were supposed to have an outside wedding and instead it poured, Hillary was able to take beautiful and creative photographs. We give Hillary our highest recommendations!

Hillary Harvey delivered A+ photos and is a 100% professional. I could not be happier with the photos. The style she captured for our wedding was soft, pretty, flattering and natural, just the way I hoped.

She is responsive to emails, phone calls, and texts within 24 hours or less, extremely critical for a bride juggling a bunch of vendors! She accommodated Manhattan meet-ups even though she is not locally based and is so friendly and warm but absolutely gets the job done. Her rate is very reasonable and her work is amazing. She worked closely with us on our desired shotlist and captured each one without exception. We were blessed with a gorgeous wedding day and Hillary and her assistant somehow got every shot we wanted (from couple portraits to flower close-ups) without going into overtime nor ever making their presence intrusive, commanding, or pushy.

Select images were posted online as soon as one week later and continued to post as she finished editing them in a very easy web gallery. We received the final file with all images within 8 weeks after the wedding.

If you want your wedding captured in a soft, natural and flattering style and if you want a talented, kind, thoughtful and reasonable photographer , definitely book Hillary Harvey!

Hillary was a pleasure to work with. We had initially booked her based solely on her work, and without meeting her. When we did meet her we knew we made the right choice. During our engagement photo session, which was the first time we met, she put us at complete ease. It was easy to be comfortable and natural even though there was someone taking photos of you three feet away... or ten feet, or one foot. She took a variety of shots at a variety of angles and the final product turned out really nice. I think she really got "us" in her photos- if you know what I mean. She took phenomenal photos on our wedding day. Looking at them makes me feel like she must have been everywhere and seen everything, but she at no point felt intrusive. There's nothing worse than someone stopping you from what you're doing so they can take a picture- and that's not Hillary. She's more like a photo ninja that was really fun to be around. I'm happy we found a good photographer and a good person for our wedding.

We loved working with Hillary was an absolute pleasure. She was the first and only photographer we interviewed. She is so sweet as is her assistant Ellie and we and our guests felt so comfortable around her. She was able to coax great poses out of people without being annoying. There is nothing pushy about Hillary, but she gets almost all the shots. I didn’t even notice her taking pictures during our ceremony and she blended right in. She handled our somewhat crazy family with their politics flawlessly. We had done a pretty thorough photo scout with her in advance, but Hillary still managed to create some additional shots within our venues. Our pictures are beautiful, although they took a little longer to get back than I expected (perhaps she had noted the turnaround time in the beginning, but I forgot). There are some shots I wished I had asked for and angles I wish I had noted to her to avoid, but that is more on me than Hillary. I loved working with Hillary and really hope I have another reason to work with her again.

When we started looking for wedding photographers, we had to do a lot over the internet, as we were planning a Hudson Valley wedding from afar. We found many photographers' sites that less than impressed us, and started to feel like we'd have to settle for someone who just did the job and gave us some way to document the day. When we found Hillary's website, it was a breath of fresh air, and for the first time were were really excited. Beautiful, bright, natural looking photos took the place of stuffy, symmetrical portraits; she could make the smallest detail pop. We were so impressed, and decided to have her shoot our engagement photos, to see how pictures of us would turn out. We were absolutely thrilled with the outcome. Not only were the photos beautiful, but the whole experience of getting to the location was fun, and it let us all get to know each other. We were 100% sure that we NEEDED Hillary to photograph our wedding! She was perfect through the whole planning process - very organized and on top of what needed to be done before and during the wedding to get the end result that we wanted, but she did all of this in a very friendly and unobtrusive way. Contact before the wedding was always, always prompt, clear, and helpful. And on the wedding day, she kept things moving and accomodated slight changes in plans with no problem. Our guests absolutely loved her - we knew they would! We just received all of our wedding proofs and they are unbelievable. All of the best moments of the day were captured perfectly. I can't say enough about Hillary. If you're planning a wedding in a region where she photographs - GO WITH HER! You won't regret it for a second!

Hillary is the best! She did our engagement photos, a boudoir photo shoot present and our wedding photos. She was willing to meet with us, communicate via email with me (all the time!), was super receptive to our outdoor location, and was responsive to all of our requests. Our photos from all of our sessions are beautiful and her cost is unbelievably reasonable. Getting all of your photos on a CD makes projects and presents super easy and she is very no pressure if you are interested in doing your album yourself. Hillary will take pictures of my future children.

I wish the ratings went higher than 5 stars. Hillary is a joy to work with and brings a fresh eye to wedding photography. She is not only professional but fun, and puts everyone at ease while keeping the shooting on track.

I highly recommend her to anyone looking for quality wedding photos that capture the day's moments in a unique way. Three cheers for Hillary! Read less

My husband and I sat down with Hillary a few months ago and began to discuss plans for our wedding day. As we walked out of the coffee shop we were filled with excitment, because we knew we had just found the perfect photographer for our wedding day! We began with an engagement photoshoot, which Hillary made into a fun filled day! Nick and I just walked around taking in the sites of the Hudson Valley, as Hilary used her artistic and photographic eye to capture beautiful shots during the winter months. As the months progressed, and we followed our strict wedding schedule, Hillary was always available to answer any questions and reassure us with any doubts we may have about the wedding day... ie: a rainy day (every brides nightmare!!!). Hilary had scoped out spots around the area where the wedding party could take pictures inside and still turn out unique and beautiful! She also met with not only Nick and I before the wedding, but with my family to discuss specific shots we wanted to capture on our wedding day and to create the days schedule. When our day finally came Hillary arrived as my bridesmaids and I were getting ready! Right away her and her assistant began snapping photos, capturing the "ladies bonding" moments and the reactions of my family as I walked down the stairs as a bride! She created a very calm and relaxed environment, capturing candid and posed shots! The girls and my family were laughing and have a blast as Hilary joined in and snapped away! During the ceremony and reception Hilary blended into the background, capturing shots I didn't even know she took until I viewed our photo gallery! It was wonderful to be able to "re-live" our wedding day as I clicked through the all of our photos!
Hilary has a great website, which is easy to navigate and very straight foward! After she went through all of our photos, Hillary posted them on her website, which allows not only my husband and I to view them, but our wedding guests and family as well! She broke down all of our pictures into different themed photo galleries which made the expierence of viewing them wonderful! Another fantastic feature of the photo-galleries is allowing guests to order prints right from the website!
I can not say enough great things about Hillary! She was a vital part in making our wedding day a dream come true! Hillary was very professional and easy to work with! She has a great eye for breath-taking shots and adds a special treat by shooting some shots using film! Both Nick can not thank Hiallry enough for capturing all the special moments of our day!!

In every way, working with Hillary was a wonderful experience. Though her services were more than I had hoped to pay (silly me, I knew nothing of photograhpy prices), she was worth every penny, cost much less than many, and was worth so much more! She was thoughtful and kind about our financial shortcomings and came up with an option that worked for our budget.

She blended in with our guests and it felt like she was just another old friend at the party. She put everyone at ease. It can be so difficult to take beautiful portraits of people because we all tense up a little bit in front of the camera. Hillary took photos of not only ourselves that we will cherish for years, but photos of our friends and family that will become family keepsakes.

She was flexible and wonderful in her time with us and travelled to our distant location for our wedding camp week photos.

I feel so lucky that we found Hillary. Finding a photographer was our most difficult task in planning our wedding, but I guess it was just because our standards were high! We were truly blessed to have found her - her artistry, her professionalism, and her kindness were all one of a kind. If you have the opportunity, hire her now!

Hillary Harvey went above and beyond the call of duty! She was not only professional but extremely skilled in her field. She felt like a friend at my wedding. She did a thorough interview with my now husband before the wedding making sure she knew what type of pictures we wanted. And when the day came, she made our dreams come true! I have recommended her to many of my friends, and plan on using her again for other events! We absolutely love our wedding photos!

Hillary was amazing! She really listened to what we wanted out of our wedding day photos, and was very flexible with working out a payment schedule. On the day of the wedding Hillary did a fantastic job at handling my very large and loud family! She was invisible - we barely noticed her, and she was able to get all the family photos we wanted without making us feel like we were taking pictures all day.
Her photos were absolutely perfect. They were beautiful, wonderful, exactly what we wanted! She worked with me personally for hours on the layout of the album, and the finished product is; well, amazing! Hillary was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. I recommended her to my cousin who used Hillary for her own wedding, and she loved her too! My husband and I plan on using Hillary in the future to document all the special occasions in our lives! You will love her!
