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.

Hillary is a real artist and the shots that we've seen so far are beautiful ! Super sweet and accommodating - not a typically pushy photographer. Her photo booth is fantastic too!

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.
