I want to tell your story.
My name is Hannah Kuznia, and I love your love.
My aesthetic is photojournalistic and romantic, with a focus on authentic moments. I like to pride myself on my one - on - one approach, because I'll be with you from your first email to the last dance.
I want to give you an album that balances the impromptu with the classic. 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. I have a never-ending list of good poses running through my head that I will share if we're in need of a switch-up. No stranger to large family groups or rowdy wedding parties, I balance all of the "classic, must have" posed shots with the unique, in-the-moment shots that all add to the narrative and the story of your wedding day.
More than anything, I want to make your day-of photography a true experience. 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. In other words -- I'm just as invested as you are.
I get it, so you don’t have to.
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 wedding 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?!

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.
I started working weddings in 2015 as an assistant, so I learned about how a wedding day works from the ground up.
In addition to having the experience on the vendor side of things, I'm a newlywed myself so I just experienced the wedding planning process from the bride's perspective. I know how important it is to feel special, valued, and heard in those precious months you have while you plan your perfect wedding.
Aside from a strong portfolio and unquestionable know-how, I want to bring a genuine personal connection to the table. I like to think of this exchange as the most meaningful customer service interaction of your life. Plus, when your photographer makes you feel at ease, it shows in the pictures - that's the key to looking gorgeous and in love.
Why do I do this?
A question I visit daily. There are over over 6.9 billion people on this planet - each with their own unique values, background, outlook on life, and support system. No two individuals are the same, just as no two couples are the same. Couple to couple, it really makes a mark on me to get to see what all these different partnerships are like, and then to find a way to uniquely represent their love and the love of their support systems - their families and friends - on the day of. I don’t consider myself to be a gratuitously emotional person but I will say that observing and documenting the special bonds that hold these people together is not just a career to me - it’s a privilege.
INVEST IN YOUR PRIORITIES.
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, keepyou comfortable behind the camera, help keep your hair #bomb and show the guys how to pin their boutonnieres? That’s me.
