Amazing photographer and videographer!! GREAT team, really creative and fun pictures. Worth EVERY penny and more!!

They took pictures from 11am til 11pm. They made sure to get every shot I wanted and more. They did fun shots, creative shots, portraits, and lots of other amazing things. Very very creative and wonderful to work with.

Also really nice that they are photography/videography team, therefor they work together and know what they're doing rather than bumping into each other and getting into each other's way.

If you are in the MD/DC/VA area, you should hands down go with Hyon and his team. Really easy and fun to work with and a really quality product. I couldn't be happier!

I cannot sing enough praise for Hyon Smith Photography. Hyon and his whole team are truely artists. Hyon took my engagement photos in Georgetown, he made an amazing engagement movie of me and my now hubby! I played it at my rehearsal dinner. Everyone cried, they also said it looked like a hollywood film!
From the beginning Hyon would always accomodate me and my schedule, even THOUGH, he is so busy himself. He was flexible and really got my vision. On the wedding day he and his team was amazing, they were documenting like crazy but didn't EVER make you feel like they were in your face. They gave me sneak peak of some photos before editing and oh my God, so breathtaking, I can't wait to see the final product with editing! Hyon has the perfect mix of humor and professional. He has beautiful ideas but puts a smile on your face while he does it. Hyon is a celebrity, I am telling you... I am so picky... Unexpected bonus, I work in a non profit setting and do a lot of volunteer work. I met him on a volunteer job I did... I love working with someone who donates his already limited time for a good cause!

I can not say enough... Hyon and his crew are awesome! They are professional... the best! at the same time, very laid back and cool, calm and collected... they coordinated everything very well despite any mishaps or craziness on our part or our friends and family....they could handle whatever comes their way (from sudden chances of rain on an outdoor ceremony, a bride in tears because she doesn't like her hair, an angry groom because the bride is late, to a foreign speaking family that can not follow any instructions)... they just kept on smiling and made everyone else smile also... Love you Hyon!

Hyon and Adam did an amazing job with our wedding. They set up a slide show near the end of the reception and our guests literally gasped at some of the shots they captured. They scouted the area in the days before our ceremony and found some wonderful locations to take "fun" photos before the wedding, which were some of the most amazing photos - artistic and a few editorial in style. I am *in love* with our photographs and could not be any happier.

Hands down....AMAZING! Hyon Smith and his team are true professionals. He was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. The weather on our event day was not the best...so the nerves began to set in about where we could take photos. There was no need to worry....because he made the very best out of the venue. When I received the first email of proofs....they took my breathe away. It was like being back in the moment they were so magical. My family still can not stop talking about how wonderful the pictures turned out!

Hyon and his team are the BEST! They were wonderful to work with. Very professional and fun too. His work is of the highest quality. You get what you pay for so he is well worth the money. Would hire him again in a second.

I hate providing such a negative review, but I hope that this will be helpful for future brides and grooms who would like to avoid the headaches that we went through.

We were dissatisfied with the service from Hyon Photography because: Adam's team was 45 minutes late without calling and left two hours early saying they had their "story", not one single picture of the cocktail hour, or the decoration and theme, guests complained about their unprofessionalism, and their pictures were unfortunate for a professional photography company - blurry, mostly portraits and the same background with trash cans, fire hydrants and poles in the back which make some of those pictures unusable. I understand Adam was training someone that day, which could explain a lot and we understand people can have bad days. However, on top of things, the pictures were delivered raw without seemingly any touch-ups or "story" and the contract was never fulfilled as they did not provide prints as per signed agreement.

We met with Hyon last year and he admitted that we had a case. He offered to make up for this by promising a shoot with him, a wedding album and the prints per the contract. He delivered on the photo shoot in May 2012. It was actually a fun session and we appreciate Hyon's artistry and positive disposition. However, we have not heard back from him since the Fall 2012 regarding the remaining items.

Much to Hyon's surprise, we have waited over two years to provide a review as we wanted to be fair and give them a chance to right the wrong and give balanced feedback. We are not out to ruin his reputation, which is stellar for the moment but just wanted what was agreed upon in the contract and in the follow-up with Hyon. Not sure what happened...

I hope this review is helpful. Please beware. There is enough to worry about on your special day. Your photographer and consequently pictures should not be one of them.
