It's hard to articulate how unbelievable Hope is. To prevent this from getting to be an epic love letter to Hope and her photography I'll keep it short and sweet:

- Hope will be beloved by everyone at your wedding.
- She's professional yet affable. Warm yet firm. 
- She's prompt, communicative, and punctual. 
- She did not miss one second of our wedding. Every photograph we could have asked for was there, plus, she went above and beyond to layer in angles and environments that illuminated the humanity of our experience. 
-Hope captured the inspired light of the love my wife and I feel for one another.  
-I would be friends with Hope! She's kind, funny, and charming. 
- Hiring Hope is a hands-down no-brainer decision if you want your wedding photography to be something you actually care about and want to look at the rest of your life.


5 stars are not nearly enough for Hope - 5 galaxies might be more fitting. We found Hope in our search for a photographer with timeless, elegant, minimal, documentarian style for our intimate ceremony on the Cape. She was the first person we reached out to, and after our initial conversation, we knew we had hit the jackpot. Hope is a true professional — calm, knowledgeable, direct, courteous, organized, and punctual. She is also a wonderful human being - kind, honest, thoughtful, patient, open minded, and FUN! We were lucky enough to have Hope (and her husband and second shooter, Max) shoot some engagement photos with us a few months before our wedding - so by the time our wedding day came, we knew we were in the best possible hands and felt completely at ease! The galleries that she delivered blew our expectations out of the water - there is no way to describe what it feels like to see the memories of one of the happiest days of your life on paper in front of you - and there is no better artist to trust with this work than Hope.


Hope is hands down the best wedding investment we made. 

I've always been extremely camera-shy. I hated being photographed and hated viewing photos of myself -- but Hope made me feel incredibly comfortable from the beginning. Not only did she help me feel at ease through her easy demeanor but she fit in seamlessly with our wedding party. She helped me and my bridesmaids get ready, she instructed us on how to cut the cake, and she encouraged us to get married in the pouring rain (best decision ever). I wish we had grabbed some photos with her, that's how important she was to us on our big day!

And the photos. The photos! The Super 8 film! I have never felt more beautiful in my entire life. Hope perfectly captured the energy of the day. My husband and I are working to create a wedding album and we quickly hit the max photo limit. Instead of cutting back on photos, we've decided to create 2 albums because we want to have physical copies of every moment Hope captured.


Hope is absolutely phenomenal! She is an amazingly talented photographer whose photos are pure magic. Hope captured our wedding day on both digital and film perfectly and made the entire experience smooth, joyful, and fun. She's professional while being warm and personal through the process. 

Your photographer spends a lot of time with you on your wedding day so you want someone with a great personality like Hope by your side who feels like a friend and makes everything feel natural, calm, and enjoyable. Hope captures all of the classic photos you'd want, but then goes above and beyond to capture all of the sweet, candid, intimate, in-between moments, and special details that truly encapsulate your day. 

I'll cherish the photos she took forever.


HOPE IS AMAZING!!!! She has an incredible gift for bringing out personality and warmth in her photos, and every shot we received brought us so much joy. She captured all the moments - big and small - perfectly. Our family and friends are IN LOVE with the portfolio. The sneak peeks were stunning, and the full album allows us to be seamlessly transported back to the wedding - every portrait and detail shot are gorgeous and infused with our vibe. Working with her felt easy and authentic.

Hope (and Max!) also brought us such a sense of calm and ease. They made us feel "in the moment" with each other and with our loved ones, and we felt we could be wholly ourselves. In addition to being gifted artists, they are truly lovely people. Our photos and experience were amazing, and we can't recommend Hope Allison Photography enough.
