From the first time I met Hannah with The Foto Atelier, I was impressed by her professionalism and perfectionism. In reviewing her work, you could tell she was top notch. I meet with other photographers afterwards, but they came no where close in comparison to her quality of work nor her attitude toward her work so I chose her to do my wedding. She was wonderful to work with for all 3 sittings - engagement, sweetheart and wedding. I have nothing but compliments about her and her work. She was top notch to work with.

Foto Atelier created a gorgeous photo booth for my wedding. It was a HUGE hit with the guests. The booth fit the theme of the wedding perfectly, and the back drop Hannah created was stunning. I absolutely loved the book I received with all the pictures and comments from my guests. I would definitely recommend Foto Atelier! xoxo Lesley DeCastro Vedel

Hannah not only took beautiful wedding pictures, but she was a delight to work with. She blended right in with my family and wedding party and gave great direction with pictures, but was not overbearing and bossy. Many bridesmaids commented on how much they enjoyed her. I picked out the pictures I wanted in my album and she put them together beautifully and quickly. I would highly recommend The Foto Atelier for any occasion, particularly weddings.

The Foto Atelier did a fabulous job for our wedding! Hannah has such a great eye, and I am so thankful she was our photographer. At Hannah's suggestion, my husband and I took photos together before the ceremony (our first "viewing" of each other), and we also took photos with our family before the ceremony as well. The pictures are fantastic! Everyone in the photos are excited about the upcoming nuptials instead of anxious to go straight to the reception. I can't recommend The Foto Atelier enough!

Without hesitation, I highly recommend The Foto Atelier for wedding photography. The services received were more than expected. There were two photographers who arrived early the morning of the 11 AM wedding and stayed until the bride and groom left for their honeymoon. Hannah is very easy to work with and helped to make a busy wedding day more calm. The wedding album is beautiful, unique, creative and excellent quality. All of the special moments were captured in photos.

Hannah did an excellent job. She was extremely professional and fun to work with. She used the venue surroundings to produce the best quality pictures and to compliment the bride and groom. She was very easy going and never made us feel rushed. We had an awesome number of pictures to pick from. They were all so beautiful that it was hard to choose. We loved the day and Hannah made it even more fun.

Working with Hannah was a delight. She was easy-going and professional and managed to get my husband to smile in a non-creepy way, which was quite a success! I loved her creativity and you could tell she knew what she was doing. I will cherish the photographs she took forever.

Incredibly professional. Hannah was the most profession vendor at our wedding. She has been my friend for many years and all she every wanted to do since I can remember was to take beautiful photographs. Hannah and her husband, Greg, took our photos and blended in with the crowd very well during our reception. We never felt like we were surrounded by paparazzi. Her photos were flawless and she is very artistic, she captured our wedding in her pictures just how we remembered it.

Hannah was a wonderful photographer for my wedding. She was really able to capture our wedding day in a very special way. The package that she offered us was by far the best deal and actually included more than we expected. Our pictures are absolutely beautiful and we are so pleased. I would recommend her to anyone and would definitely use her again.

I greatly enjoyed my experience in having Hannah from the The Foto Atelier photograph my wedding. She was very patient even though we took pictures for several hours before the wedding. I could not be happier with the beautiful pictures and album I now have. I found the package options to be reasonably priced.

Hannah Slamen is a wonderful photographer. She has exceptional talent! Our wedding photos, album, and experience was amazing. She is young, vibrant, and very good at what she does. Our wedding album was the new jounalistic photography design,, which is very unique. She has a fashion background, and shot for the Portico Magazine. She came from California to Alabama.

I will use for my children's photographs one day, my dog, my husband and I, etc. She's that good!
