Hull Grenier Studios was great to work with. They asked for a formals list before the wedding and made sure every picture we listed was taken. He got to my house early and took plenty of photos of me getting ready and some formal pictures of my bridesmaids and myself at our home. He made sure every picture we wanted captured was taken and our proofs were up on a website two days after the wedding. Their website was also very easy to order our albums off of. I’d recommend Hull Grenier Studios to any bride!

I can't not even begin to say how great Brain was! He captured so many great pictures from that day that I'm not sure how to even begin making my album. Really, really great and I had all my proofs the next day after my wedding.

Brian Hull does amazing work. He was prompt the day of the weddding and he stayed until the end of the reception. Our pictures were available online that evening. We received our disk with the photos within the week after our wedding. We could not have been any happier or more satisfied.

Brian Hull was fabulous. He gave us great advice and suggestions from the time we met him until the actual day. He sent out regular emails to make sure we were exactly where we needed to be in our planning. They allow you to pay using a payment plan so we were done paying at the time the rest of the bills were coming in. Our proofs were absolutely stunning and everyone that sees our pictures thinks they are breathtaking. My one and only complaint was that I had a hard time finding Brian during my cocktail hour in which I had requested certain pictures that never got taken. But don't let that deter you, definitely use them!!!!

David Grenier shot our wedding photos on 7/18/09 and we couldn't be happier with the results. The website account was so helpful! David was professional and fun to be around for the day. Our albums came out beautiful and were completed quickly. It was so great to have our proofs in 24 hours. The whole experience was easy and stress free!

David Grenier is an awesome photographer, he is professional and takes unique pictures but also gets all the ones you need for the grandparents, parents, etc.. you dont even realize he is there but he gets great shots. He really cares about his clients which, frankly is hard to find these days. I would highly recommend both him and Brian Hull from Hull Grenier Studios.

Brian Hull was AMAZING!!! From the first time we met with him and saw his photo albums I knew he was the one. haha Brian replied to ALL my question, and i had alot, very fast. On the day of my wedding before the day even started i got lipstick on my dress and who was the one who got it out but Brian. I didn't even have to panick he was so calm and got it out in know time. Well anyway time for the photographs. He is a great photographer. He showed up at my house for the preparations and stayed till the last dance. I don't think there was one aspect of my beautiful day that he did not capture. In fact i recieved 747 pics of our wedding and they were all great which made it extremely difficult to pick out my album photos, b/c i want them all. Brian had actually had all of our wedding pics up online two hours after the wedding was done, which was at 1:30 am. Well if you couldn't tell We LOVED Brian. He was AMAZING. We will be reccommending him to everyone we know who will be getting married in the future.

Brian Hull was our photographer for our wedding at Kirkbrae Country Club. We had him do our engagement photos, which came out beautiful so we just knew we had to have him for our wedding photographer. He was very accommodating and willing to do whatever you wanted. When he showed up at my house he made me feel very calm and I knew the day was going to go very smoothly. All our wedding guests were amazed by his professionalism at the wedding and were even more amazed when the pictures were up for viewing the day after the wedding. There were 765 pictures, all of which were amazing, which made it very difficult to choose pictures for the album. We have received many compliments on our wedding pictures and I thank Brian for his amazing work. I would recommend him to everyone!!!

I can not say enough about David, he was amazing! They sent monthly reminders as well as follow up e-mails to amke sure I was on track. the day of the wedding he was able to get the ost amazing photos, even though we had some rain. I was shocked to see that sunday morning I had my proofs waiting for my online. Creating our album has been the easiest thing I have ever done. Everything is online and just a click away.

The photographer (HULL) had a major attitude problem and was NOT afraid to show it to the guests. He acted bothered when people wanted to take pictures. It was very embarrassing!!

Hull Grenier photography is amazing! Brian Hull was our photographer, he was very professional, flexible, and eager to answer any questions from day 1. We had a beautiful day at the Aldrich mansion in April. Brian got all the shots we dreamed of and they were amazing. My only problem now is I'm going to have to order a bigger album than planned ;-) It will definitely be worth it though, the photos are just stunning.

On a separate note, for brides on the go, the Hull Grenier site is very user friendly. You can even schedule your meeting or submit questions on line. It may sound like something small, but this really comes in handy for those of us tied to our desks!

Brian Hull is the best! His website made planning all the formals a snap, he has everything coordinated and timed to ensure a smooth transition from ceremony to formals to reception. The photos were amazing, as was the album he created. So natural looking, he captured us perfectly! The proofs were online the next day and our order was filled very quickly. Great work, very affordable for the quality.

David Grenier did an exceptional job with our wedding photos. We got the album final album this Spring and we could not have been happier. Everyone we have showed it to thinks it is one of the best albums they have ever seen (then again I'm sure most people say that to the newlyweds). On a serious note - we could not have been more excited with all his work and professionalism over the past year and a half. We wish them nothing but the best and all the success in the world.

I was very pleased with the amount of time that the photographer was available to us on our wedding day (the entire day). This was one of the reasons why we chose him. We received our pictures, photo CD's and our wedding album on time and and I must say that the album was laid out beautifully. I am however, very dissappointed with his attitude and response (NO!) when my now sister in-law asked to have our picture taken together before we left for the church. I was also shocked when and even more dissappointed when he was extreamly annoyed when he had to wait 20 mins for us to show up at our formal location. Our wedding was almost two years ago and it still bothers me to this day when I think about it.

David Grenier was very professional and met with my now husband I to show us his protfolios and answer questions. We chose a package that included photographs to be taken before ceremony (getting ready), the sequence of us getting in the limo, our guests before the wedding, our ceremony, staged shots (family, bridal party, us) and then the reception. He was artisitc, using balck and white, color and some with balck and white with a punch of color. We recieved our proofs within 2 weeks of the wedding (this included all 980 pictures plus a CD with ll pictures including the rights to the pictures). We had access to all our pictures online for one year. After we chose which pictures we wated for our album, we got it within 6 weeks! We were very pleased with him, our photographs and how quickly everything was done. We would highly recommend him!

I worked with specifically with Brian Hull. He was extremely easy to work with. straight to the point and got things done. I was very very happy with his work. He captured every part and every little detail of the day and the formals of my husband and I came out beautiful. We also took advantage of the engagement sitting that was offered with our package. When I order the prints last minute before my wedding to use for our signature mat he dropped them off at my house in order for me to have them in time. I highly reccommend him and his company. Great value for the your money, easy to work with, unobtrusive, and quality photos.

I was fortunate enough to have Brian Hull photograph my wedding and words can NOT explain how wonderful of a job he does. People look at my wedding album and are completely blown away. Some people actually think that the scenery is not really because that is how crisp and clean the photos look. I love them and if I were to do it again (which I am not I love my hubby) I would so go with you again. Thank you for capturing the most important event in our lives.
