All of the reviews of Travis Hoehne are correct. He is "rad", "awesome", and "excellent", however, those terms merely scratch the surface of the experience you will have when hiringTravis. When my husband and I first began planning our nuptials, we decided we would have a destination wedding and that meant one thing . . . a rockin' photographer. I had seen Travis's work through a friend who had used him for her wedding a few years prior. I loved his unique take on the typical wedding photos and immediately contacted Travis through his website. From our first e-mail, I could tell Travis was the right man for the job! He worked with us to create a package that included everything we wanted from our photographer and more (at an affordable price)!

The next step was meeting Travis and his wonderful wife, Rebecca. My husband and I live in New York and Travis hails from California, so we found a night to meet while Travis and Rebecca were working in New York. Within moments of our initial meeting, my husband and I felt as though we were chatting with old friends. Travis and Rebecca are a fabulous couple and team! After our brief meeting, we began contracts and Travis was officially booked. Throughout the year of wedding planning, Travis was easily accessible via e-mail and many social networking sites. As the wedding approached, Travis and I worked out a timeline of shooting for the big day that made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Also, I must mention that at Travis's suggestion we opted to shoot a "first look". A first look occurs before the ceremony and allows the bride and groom to see one another for the first time in a private setting. I have to admit, I had reservations about the unconventional nature of seeing my fiance before the ceremony, however, Travis reassured me that opting for a first look would calm our nerves about the ceremony and allow us more time to take incredible pictures around Aruba. Travis was SO right! Not only was it a joy to see my fiance and share an incredibly special moment just the two of us, we were also able to take so many amazing photos with Travis and Rebecca that we would not have been able to shoot without doing a first look.

On our wedding day Travis and Rebecca immediately put me at ease. Rather than feeling as though we had photographers on our tails all day, my husband and I felt as though we were spending the day with two close friends. Additionally, Travis and Rebecca went far beyond the duties of wedding photographers. Together they mediated any crisis that arose throughout the day from continually fixing my hair, to cleaning a dirt stain that appeared on my wedding gown, to even rescuing forgotten boutineers from the groom's suite. During the ceremony and reception, Travis and Rebecca easily blended into the crowd of family and friends. By putting our guests at ease, they were able to capture many candid pictures without being noticed and caught so many wonderful moments on our big day.

I could continue to write about what fantastic photographers and people the Hoehnes are all day! The bottom line is this; if you are a bride and groom who are looking for an exquisite, beautiful, and photojournalistic approach to your wedding photos, Travis is your man! I wanted to take wedding pictures all day because Travis and Rebecca made being photographed that much fun! A huge thank you to the Hoehnes for helping us capture our wedding day!
