Hendrick Moy Photography
Hendrick Moy absolutely blew me and my husband away! The photos are so artistic and so unlike typical wedding photos that we literally fell in love with them. Hendrick and his team were so professional and knew exactly what they were doing, the photos weren't forced and Hendrick really had an eye for finding the perfect shots. Every photo is amazing and we are having a really tough time deciding which ones to frame. All of our wedding guests commented how amazing the photos are! We couldn't be happier that we chose Hendrick to capture our wedding, the photos are so intimate and really capture all the emotions of the day. I could not have asked for a better photographer. He was also very accommodating when we couldn't decide on a date for our engagement shoot and ended up deciding to do pictures after the wedding and he was very accessible in the time approaching the wedding, answering all of our questions very quickly. Take the time to check out his website (you will probably see our wedding pictures on his blog!). I have already recommended him to my closest friends who are getting married. A definite recommendation to all brides out there!! Thank you Hendrick!
My official wedding (ceremony & reception) was in another state. Due to a large number of families and friends in NY we threw reception #2 in NY! I have been following Hendrick Moy Photography on Facebook for some time now so I have seen his work since the beginning. I like his style approach to capturing "special moments" and not the traditional approach all the time. He blogs a lot & keeps up with his fans by updating where and who he is shooting, so as a visual person, I saw his work often. I emailed Hendrick with what I wanted and my budget since it was not a full wedding. He worked with me. The months leading to the reception, I emailed Hendrick & said I'd like a Central Park shoot for my bride/groom shots. I was skeptical at first b/c CP is uptown and with all the traffic/parking etc..i was afraid he would suggest somewhere else. Nope! he liked the idea and as much as I bombarded him with worse-case scenarios of emails, he was calm, always responded quickly and did not make me feel crazy for wanting to shoot at CP--and I LOVE my pictures!! Right after the shoot, we headed to the reception. Hendrick was professional and I did not worry about him b/c I knew that he was going to do the job right. I was able to enjoy the reception fully. At the end of the night, when it was time for him to leave, he let me know-Come to find out he lives 2 hours away from the city--one way! Hendrick didn't mention this to me when we were consulting, nor did he charge me a "travel fee" that is dedication. He blogged my wedding photos up w/in 30 days & finished preparing the reception photos with a secured web link--ready to be viewed with family/friends in 30 days! the turn around time was excellent! I was not expecting to see all the wonderful photos captured so soon! they came out great! Overall, I was very happy with my experience & Hendrick is very dedicated to his business and it shows. Very easy-going guy to work with and he will not disappoint you at all!
We hired Hendrick to photograph our wedding based on a recommendation from one of our friend's. Hendrick is an excellent photographer. Before the wedding, he was upfront with pricing and his services. We met before signing the contract and he provided us with a lot of information regarding his photography style, contract, packages and also advice regarding wedding planning. Our wedding package included an engagement session. Hendrick was a great sport as we drove him around to all our favorite local spots, working him into the night. The engagement photos were beautiful and came in handy for the bridal showers, wedding website, and pictures for use during the wedding.
The day of the wedding, Hendrick showed up on time and was very professional. We opted for one photographer, leaving Hendrick with the job to run between our hotel rooms for the pre-wedding shots. We did a first look, and without us knowing where to take photos, Hendrick quickly thought up some great locations and shots. During the wedding, Hendrick pulled me and my husband out to take some photos with just the two of us, which was a really nice touch. Two weeks after the wedding, Hendrick posted a "first look" on his blog that we were able to send to all the family members. This is an awesome added value (there are no passwords to get on it!). Hendrick's work really speaks for itself in terms of quality, however, I can add that he is also a pleasure to work with.
Hendrick did a great job in being flexible to help us capture the group photos that we wanted - in addition to executing his own photographic styles. The work that he and his co-photographer did were wonderful! They captured natural moments very well!
Like most Brides, I did an extensive search on the internet to find the perfect photographer. My Husband and I wanted someone who did more than just take pictures, but rather capture the emotions of the day. We met Hendrick at a conveniently located Starbucks and right away knew he was perfect for us. We spoke with Hendrick and his wife Chi Chi for nearly an hour, asking them a ton of questions not only about photography but about the wedding. Soon after our meeting with Hendrick we signed our contract. Anytime we emailed Hendrick he responded quickly and was always happy to help. We received our wedding day photos shortly after the wedding and couldn’t have been happier with them- they are absolutely stunning! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hendrick to any of my friends.
Hendrick was the most fabulous photographer I could imagine! He was so flexible and stepped in at the last moment and came to the rescue after another photographer was unable to fulfill the services for the date. All of our friends have commented on what a truly amazing job Hendrick did. He was able not only to capture all the moments of wedding day but also provided an array of very artistic portraits and detail pictures my husband, family and I were incredibly pleased with!
From the moment we first contacted Hendrick he was so easy to deal with and a true professional. The photographs he took turned out to be better than we could've wished for. I would highly recommend using Hendrick for your event.
We did a lot of research before we chose Hendrick. Looked everywhere for an affordable photographer that wasn't just going to take the traditional shots that look like something one of my relatives could take with a better camera.
I reached out to Hendrick and was happy to find him willing to work within my budget, without compromising our needs. He agreed to meet us at our local Starbucks, which we later learned was about 45 minutes from where he lives. Hendrick showed up with his beautiful wife, Chi - very pregnant at the time. We spent about an hour getting to know each other and discussing our options.
We left that meeting, went home and made our decision that night. Hendrick's photos are amazing and his personality makes him an easy person to work with. We mailed the deposit check the next day.
We spoke with Hendrick a few times before the wedding and even sent him pics of shots other photographers had done that we liked.I also sent him a link to my pintrest board so he could see photos I had captured from the internet that I thought were cool.
The day of the wedding Hendrick showed up early, with his assistant Justin. They proceeded to roam around and take pictures of our venue, the personalized items we had, as well as our guests, family, and the both of us. He was easy to work with and even during the cocktail hour just grabbed the shots he needed and went with the flow. Hendrick was there for about 5 hours total even though we barely saw him. We joked later about how "stealthy" he was. He seemed to be everywhere and nowhere at the same time. He captured all of the important moments and many of our guests enjoying themselves.
Within a week after the wedding, we had our first sneak peak, which he posted to his blog and to Facebook, with a tag for me and my husband.
About 3 weeks after the wedding, we had another sneak peak and the next day, he posted numerous photos from our wedding to his blog. Then came the link to the web portal with the over 500 photos he had taken of our wedding. We shared this with our guests and let them know that they were able to order any of these photos that they would like. Additionally, we will be receiving a DVD off all of the photos from our wedding, including the 40 or so that he does his artistic magic to.
Hendrick is an amazing photographer, we feel very lucky to have had him photograph our wedding and would highly recommend him to anyone getting married in our area and beyond!
Best of luck Hendrick!
Henrick was referred by a friend who is also a photographer. He was responsive to all the emails in the beginning and made himself available to discuss anything that I may have in mind before the wedding. I cannot say ENOUGH about how he went beyond the call of duty to really capture the event. Not only are his photos FABULOUS, his personality is easy-going and warm which makes for interaction with him before/the day of/after so much enjoyable. Afterwards, he kept his word for turn-around time (and was actually 3-4 days earlier also). Super thankful that he was my photographer and would HIGHLY recommend him to any of my friends.
High caliber photographer that won't cost more than your wedding. His work is comparable to photographers that charge twice the price. He's great with both posed and candid shots...for the most part while he was shooting I didn't even know he was there. I would definitely recommend, and I'm glad we chose him for our wedding.
After our initial search for a wedding photographer, we were quite frustrated because many high-quality photographers were either outside of our budget, rude, or didn't really cater to a wedding of our size (small, around 20 people). Our light at the end of the tunnel was Hendrick Moy Photography. For an incredible price, Hendrick gave us a full snowy engagement session in Central Park and took several hundred amazing photos at our wedding. His talent is only matched by his kindness and professionalism. Unlike many photographers who will drop the facade of niceness after you sign a contract, Hendrick actually becomes more friendly and really makes you feel like he cares about you and your wedding (because he does!) In addition, he also put is in touch with his friend Nuby De Leon, who is just starting out in the wedding cinematography business. Nuby provided us with a free film-quality version of our wedding! We were quite lucky! Finally, Hendrick is quite flexible in letting you share your photos with friends! Many other photographers charged several times the price Hendrick quoted us and STILL wouldn't let us have digital high-resolution copies or have any reprint/sharing rights. Hendrick, on the other hand, was quite flexible in this regard and so it was easy to find a way to share our photos while still protecting his IP/copyright. I highly recommend Hendrick to anyone looking for a photographer. Get him now so you can say you knew him before he was world-famous :)
Hello future brides! My husband and I hired Hendrick Moy for our last minute January 15,2012 wedding ceremony. Not only was Hendrick flexible with this he made our wedding day a most memorable one. He captured the moments that really most photographers and or candids never capture. He was extremely professional and on time..actually early I was the late one. He made us feel comfortable and natural although it was like 10 degrees out!! Heehee!! Hendricks work is INCREDiBLE breathtaking and absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We could not have chosen a better photographer. Hendrick also did our sons baptism in December in which he captured moments that really took my breath away! My husband and I are soooo grateful.to Hendrick and his assistant ChiChi for being so wonderful to us! We would recommend Hendrick Moy photography without even thinking about it. We would and will hire him for our future special events!! His service was absolutely exceptional!!!!!
Hendrick was extremely professional, reliable, and great to work with. He was very responsive via email and put forth lots of energy and effort throughout the entire process (before, during, and after). But the most exciting part is how fast we were able to see professional images from our wedding - after only one week, Hendrick had photos up on his blog! Then, only another week later, we received a DVD of all the images! In addition, the shots are beautiful and creative. We are very pleased.
Hendrick is exactly what u expect from a professional photographer, we r very lucky to find him and for him to accept to be our photographer at last minute changes
thanks you so much, Hendrick. Our wedding pictures look so nice after you edit them.

What is your photographic style and approach?
I’m not your typical wedding photographer. I strive for contemporary photojournalism juxtaposed with classic portraiture and a modern edginess. In other words, my fine art photography is current, but at the same time, keeps the aspects that make a photo timeless. I am extremely low-profile, and love being a ninja when it comes to capturing your images. If you’re looking for someone who’s really “in-your-face”, and asks you and your guests to contort your bodies in uncomfortable, cheesy poses, I’m probably not for you. While I will give you direction in posing to help flatter your best features during formals and portrait sessions, I prefer to tell the story of your day exactly as awesome as it unfolds, and no less… The awesomeness can be found in my wedding gallery.
What’s your photographic background?
I’m not going to sit here and tell you how I got into photography the day I was born (see the photographic proof instead. Please keep in mind, I hadn’t yet grasped the basics, like pointing forward). I have always been a photographer at heart, taking a few courses in college, and shooting events for friends, but only turned professional several years ago. It has now blossomed into a full-time romance (sometimes to the chagrin of my real-life, ever-loving & supportive wife[+1 husband point added]).
Are you insured and do you have backup gear?
Absolutely, and absolutely.
How soon will our photos be done?
I’m the kind of guy that doesn’t like to keep things on their plate. Call it, “anti-procrastination”. Portraiture and family shoots will take at the very most, a week after the shoot (but usually, I’m able to have it done within a few days). Weddings will take longer due to the sheer number of photos to cull and edit with their due personal attention, so please give those about 2 weeks (albums will take a while longer, but I PROMISE you they will be worth it), but you’ll find a sneak peek via my facebook page a day or two before the post is up. If your wedding is in the off-season, your items will be completed significantly sooner. I’ve heard some horror stories with friends that have had to wait a year or more for their finished products.. but don’t worry. My policy for each and every client is to over-deliver, and never under-deliver.
What do I need to do to book you for my wedding?
I require a 50% non-refundable retainer and signed contract. The remainder of the balance must be paid in-full 30 days before your wedding. This is pretty typical in the wild and wonderful world of weddings, but I can understand the concern some folks have in the process (afterall, we went through the same thing, not super-long ago). However, rest assured, the contract is binding, and I will honor it as such, no matter what. This is really a help to all parties involved, so that all things are completely cared for before the day of the wedding and you’re able to just relax and enjoy it.
What if you get sick or something happens to you?
I have never EVER missed a shoot, much less anything as significant as a wedding. However, God-forbid the unthinkable should happen, I will find you a comparable photographer who is more than capable of delivering the goods to your satisfaction.
Are all your photos retouched?
All the photos you receive will be color-corrected, edited for exposure, cropped for composition, and incredible. They will have gone through extensive and circumspect processing. The photos you see on the blog have all been given extra-special attention and given my custom treatment. The number you receive will depend on which package you have chosen. Feel free to contact me for details!
What type of gear do you use?
I shoot with all professional gear, my favorites being the following-
Canon 5D Mark III
Canon 580EXII and Canon 430EXII Speedlites triggered with Radiopoppers
Canon 16-35 F2.8L II
Canon 135 F2L
Canon 70-200 F2.8L IS II
Sigma 50 F1.4
Sigma 85 F1.4
46″ Photek Softlighter II
How far are you willing to travel?
How far are you willing to take me? =)
My shoots typically keep me in the Hudson Valley and Westchester area around which I reside, but I frequently photograph weddings in NYC, Long Island, New Jersey, and pretty much anywhere else in the Tri-state area. That said, I’ve always got a gear bag packed for wherever you’d like me to go!
Do you offer discounts?
I know the economy is tough. I am always willing to work with a client who wants to work with me. Though this is easiest and most feasible in my off-season, know that no matter what package you choose, I will, without fail, give you tremendous value.
Of all the things that go into your big day, at the end of it all, only a few last forever. Your wedding photos should be considered a top priority- an heirloom you can always relive and cherish, showing your future children and grandchildren… Fill in your information and hit “CONTACT US” in the menu on the right for more regarding my rates or any other questions you may have!
