"the best thing to happen to our wedding."
- as said by one of our happy brides
My name is Hannah Kuznia, and I want to tell your story.
I am here to make wedding photography coverage a true experience. My #1 goal is obviously gorgeous photos, but a close second to that is ensuring that your wedding day is a fun, seamless experience that isn't completely dominated by the "photo op" of it all. First and foremost, you're there to get married to your person and party with your besties - I'm just along for the picture-perfect ride. I will help your groomsmen pin their boutonnieres. I will happy-dance with you over the great shot we just took. I will help you attempt to pop that giant bottle of champagne you impulse-bought the week before the wedding. And you know I will tear up when you walk down the aisle and share your first dance. In other words -- I'm just as invested as you are.
I want to give you a photo collection that tells a story - one that balances the must-have classic wedding shots with life's little candid moments. The ones where you're giggling at inside jokes, stealing a kiss from the new husb, or crying with your mom. I love capturing people exactly as they are in the moment, letting big laughs and little newlywed glances naturally unfold to be caught by my lens. That said, I also understand the importance of posing and am comfortable giving direction that results in a natural looking image - I know that being in front of a camera can feel awkward! No stranger to large family groups or rowdy wedding parties, my team and I respectfully wrangle crowds with ease and crack jokes while doing it. I balance all of the "classic, must-have mantle" shots with the unique, in-the-moment shots that all add to the narrative and the story of your wedding day.
I pride myself on my one-on-one approach to photography. My business name is Hannah Lux Photography for a reason: I am the main shooter at every single one of my events and weddings. Though we work in a team of 2-3 for large events, I am ALWAYS included in that headcount. No associate weddings, no double-booked days, just me, my team, and your team. I am just as much "yours" as your new spouse will be.
Wait, that came out wrong. This is what I meant: I like to use the term "forever photographer," because my clients become a part of my life.. well.. forever... and tend to keep coming back to me for every life event they want documented ;)
I get weddings, so you don’t have to.
"it is very nice to have the person capturing your special day be as invested in it as you are"
Hear me out.
Most people that are planning their weddings are doing it for the first and last time. I would never ever expect any of my clients to know everything about the wedding day or wedding photography. That’s why I like to think of myself as a helping hand & resource for you to bounce things off of during this time where you’re making decisions left and right with the goal of having a flawless day.
But is any weddaing day flawless?
Yes and no.
SOS, why no?!
Listen, there will always be some last minute “thing”. Some change that needs to be adapted to. I see it as my duty to roll with the punches for you and adapt on site to things that change, planned or not.
OK, then why yes?!
*cue Bille Eilish “DUH” soundbyte*
Because you’re marrying your person! Rain or shine, with or without that random forgotten object you bought on etsy in preparation for the day (mine was the Kate Spade wedding cake knives -_-) at the end of the day what matters is that you get to laugh and smile with all your favorite people in the world, smooch your new spouse a lot, dance around in your wedding dress with a glass of champagne in hand, and start the rest of your life.
"She made us feel so comfortable, cracking jokes and getting us to laugh, which really beings out the best pictures of a person. Hannah is very down to earth and personable! She excelled at always being in the right place at the right time but without being obvious."
INVEST IN YOUR MEMORIES.
Do you want magic photos of your wedding day? Do you also want to have a great time with a photographer who will make you laugh, keep you feeling confident in front of the camera, help keep your hair #flawless and show the guys how to pin their boutonnieres? I got you.
