Hyak Photography provides an experience that stands out in the mind of our clients long after the photography ends, and makes people see themselves and their own personal beauty in a new way.

We provide a creative and fashion-inspired experience, and then turn those memories into tangible artwork for families that bring a feeling of joy every time you look at or touch it for years to come.

Your wedding album is the first heirloom of your new family and one of the few decisions from your wedding day that will last a lifetime.

We have experience in natural light, low light, off-camera strobe, location lighting, and high-end fashion lighting.
Is your media preference film or digital?
While I still have my film cameras for nostalgia, digital has gone far and above the resolution, clarity, and tonal capabilities of almost any 35mm color film. We use only digital cameras at weddings today.

All of our wedding packages include at least 8 hours of coverage, we only cover one wedding per day.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
We use our experience to tailor the specific equipment to the wedding venue and plans. In addition to our cameras we also bring computers, projectors, battery packs, etc. so that we can show your ceremony and creative portraits at your reception.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Always. Even the most rugged, expensive, professional gear fails and Murphy says it's going to be at a bad time. Duplicates of everything necessary comes with us to every wedding.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Our packages have enough time for most weddings, but we can always add extra time for special events.

There are no travel charges to most of the United States. For other destinations we will make our own travel and accommodation arrangements for a nominal fee.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
The first viewing of photos happens with a slideshow at the reception itself. Full proofs are available in approximately two weeks.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
A selection of proofs (approx. 700) are available for viewing in the studio with us and online. The full set (approx. 2,000) of delivered proofs is available at the same time either as DVD proofing or as digital negatives.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Digital negatives or proofing DVDs are yours forever.

Copyright release for printing is available with digital negatives, included in most packages.

What kind of albums do you offer?
Your wedding album is your first family heirloom together. We feel that the album is not only the best way to tell the story of your day, but is something that should be both beautiful enough and durable enough to have out on your coffee table every day. Every package comes with a 30-page album. Most packages include a hand-made leather-bound album.
 
 For the bride who wants to have a completely customized album, I can personally hand-make the album out of a variety of materials to almost any specification.

Albums are delivered 4-8 weeks after layout is approved. We provide worksheets to make the image selection process painless.

I had my wedding photo's done by Hyak Photography. They were amazing they traveled to the location for my wedding were very flexible with having to walk around the whole town for photos. They made sure to add any photos in that I may have seen and liked last minute as well as have great suggestions. The photo booth at my wedding was a HUGE success, I am so glad that John suggested it. We have so many wonderful photo's.

Hyak Photography also did my bridal fashion shoot before my wedding, which was fun because it gave me another excuse to wear my dress, but also made it so I had one less thing to worry about on my actual big day! In addition they did my engagement pictures which they so kindly traveled to come and take. They were so much fun and turned out AMAZING!

I highly recommend Hyak Photography to anyone looking for a wedding or event photographer. They are extremely knowledgeable and up to date on all the latest photography trends, they are professional, helpful, and very kind. I look forward to continuing to work with Hyak Photography for years to come for all of life's adventures!

Our experience with Hyak was phenomenal! They shot our one and only daughter's wedding and captured the day PERFECTLY! It was no small task, as the venue was pretty much an entire town, but they rose to the challenge and we have so many fabulous pictures to remember this special day.

John and Marcia really helped make the day fun and relaxed for us all. They were professional and personable,as well as SUPER creative with their selection of photo ops.

I MORE than highly recommend Hyak Photography for anyone that needs to capture a life event in photos.
