Praise

Nina and Eddie:

I don’t think this textbox offers me enough space to sing Hazel Photography’s praises! To say I was happy with Michelle’s work would be a gross understatement. From the moment I met Michelle at a friend’s engagement shoot I knew I would work with her one day for my wedding ( I wasn’t even engaged at the time!). My first phone conversation with Michelle made me realize how amazing our photos would be. Our wedding was on New Year’s Eve and Michelle shared my vision for all the great shots I hoped for (confetti, twinkly lights, etc.) Our engagement shoot was schedule at the beach this past July, but the weather did not cooperate. Michelle was so flexible and we ended up getting the perfect night at the beach in August. The photos took my breath away and only made me more excited for the wedding day photos. NYE finally arrived this past December and Michelle made the day so special for us. She even put me at ease in those moments when nerves bubbled up. She has a great spirit and if you want a photographer who makes you laugh, melts into the background and captures your dreams for your wedding photos she’s the one!!

Billie and Mike:

Absolutely incredible! From our first meeting, we knew that Michelle was the photographer for us. She was professional, knowledgable and, most importantly, FUN! We instantly felt comfortable with her, like a friend that we hadn’t seen in awhile. From the moment we decided to move forward, she answered all of our questions, even the outrageous ones! She took our engagement photos and covered our entire wedding day. Michelle was relaxed and focused – with her experience, she put my mind at ease around all things photography related. It was great to have an expert like her around throughout the day. She kept us on schedule without creating any panic or pressure – she knows what she’s doing! And through all of the emotions that day, she had fun with us and made us feel comfortable, relaxed and able to enjoy each and every moment. We trusted her completely. We absolutely loved working with Michelle and look forward to many opportunities to work together in the future!

Sarah and Kyle:

Michelle was beyond amazing!! Not only are we in LOVE with our photos and our beautiful album she helped create but she made our wedding day more special than we could have ever imagined! A photographer is of course extremely important because those are pictures you will have for a lifetime but they are also the person that is by your side from morning until night and I am SO thankful it was Michelle. She made me feel so comfortable and had me smiling and laughing the entire day! My husband and I feel like we made a lifetime friend! She was great throughout the entire process! We knew we wanted Michelle to capture our day the minute we met her. Best decision ever!!!

PHENOMENAL!!! Both Michelle and her second photographer, Allison, were an absolute pleasure to work with!! Working with a team that has a true passion for what they do truly made keeping memories of both our engagement and wedding day easy and enjoyable, at a very reasonable price. Not only were our pictures OUTSTANDING, but she really took the time to ensure that each one was perfected and provided them back to us extremely quickly!!! They are very responsive, always available for questions and extremely thorough in all aspects of their business. One of the traits we liked most about the Hazel Eye team is that they are very creative and willing to go out of their way for the perfect photo opportunity, which also made working with them super fun!!! From creative outdoor photos to portraits and traditional family shoots, Hazel Eye was absolutely FANTASTIC!!! Kevin & Jacque

Lauren and Ben:

Michelle was amazing! She did both our engagement shoot and our wedding photos. I am slightly neurotic and she dealt with my need to have everything planned so well! When looking for a photographer I wanted someone who took great photos obviously, someone who was very creative, could organize a large group of people and who could keep me calm on my big day. Michelle fit that to the T. Michelle and the second photographer, Allison, took such creative photos of my husband and I and really did their best to give us fun and romantic photos in all different types of lighting. The photos came out amazingly! Michelle also did such a good job at telling my bridal party and family where to stand and when to leave without being mean at all. She also worked really well with my videographer. She kept me so calm and took care of everything photo related so I could just focus on being super happy to marry the love of my life! Michelle was amazing and I would recommend her and Allison to everyone!

Katie and Chris:

Michelle was absolutely amazing! Not only did she take beautiful photos but goes above and beyond to make sure that you are not stressed. Her outgoing personality and professionalism is exactly what I hoped for on my wedding day– her skill to organize our lively and large bridal party was extremely impressive. Her creative angles and arrangements gave us a large variety of amazing pictures! We love her! I would highly recommend her to any and everyone!

Megan and Dan:

Michelle is amazing!!!!! Not only are her pictures amazing, she is so great and easy to work with. She is professional, flexible, and so sweet. She gets back to you right away and gets your pics to you when she says she will. And then the pictures ! For both the engagement and wedding photos our friends and families could not stop talking about he much they loved them. We could not be happier with our wedding and engagement pics- I even told her I can’t believe some of them are really us they look like a magazine! She is truly talented you will be so happy you chose her just like we were!

Caitlin and Jason:

There really is not much to say about Michelle and her photography besides the fact that she is the closest thing to perfection you will find. From day one, Michelle worked with my husband and I on everything… Our thoughts, our budget, our concerns. Having someone like Michelle truly made the experience of taking our engagement photos and wedding photos so easy. For both occasions, our photos ended up being everything we could have ever dreamed of and then some. For two people who are critical about the way they look in pictures, we had a hard time finding any photos that we did not like. It was almost impossible. This chick knows what she is doing!! One of the main things we were really impressed with was the turn around time when receiving our photos. Both of our engagement and wedding photos were edited and sent to us so quickly!! My husband and I absolutely loved her. We would no doubt recommend her again and again! Xoxoxo

Yulie and Freddy:

My Husband and I are so glad we decided to hire Michelle from Hazel Eye Photography for our engagement session and wedding day pictures. Michelle was very understanding on what we expected and worked with us to achieve it. Due to our busy schedules, Michelle was accommodating to our availability. She had no problem meeting us at our favorite location for our engagement session and this meant so much to us. We would like to also say a very special thank you to Alison (2nd photographer), she assisted Michelle in helping capture all the precious memories from our amazing wedding day. Everything came back beautifully and during the whole process we found it very relaxing and fun.

Love,

Freddy and Yulie Li J

Back in November or so of 2012 I first contacted Michelle at Hazel Eye Photography. I had come across her images, was intrigued, and ventured over to her blog and website. I loved what I saw upon arrival! Instantly, I sent an email and requested information. Not even 24 hours later I received a response to my inquiry. I did contact several other photographers, had a few phone conversations, but was not impressed. I went with my gut feeling, my first conversation. Michelle worked with us over the almost 2 year span for our engagement shoot, details for the wedding, etc. She was so helpful with suggestions, answering the 12,784 questions I had over this time span, and just being an overall nice/friendly person to deal with. One thing I will remember she said when we first spoke is “Make sure you get along with your photographer, and you like them – because you will be spending most of your day with them.” – And this was 110% true of Michelle.

Wedding day came this past September finally, and it turned out to be 106 degrees out with humidity and all – and some downpour rain during our first dance. Not one picture showed that we were literally dripping sweat. Michelle is adventurous when she shoots, she listens to your suggestions and wants/likes, but also puts her spin on things which are AWESOME. I trusted her fully with pictures that would represent my style, and one of the biggest days of our lives. She was on point in every aspect.

After seeing my pictures via online gallery, I find new ones each time I look at them that are my new “favorites”. It was extremely tough to pick pictures for our album – but thankfully Michelle suggested album pictures and captured exactly what I would have picked for our album.

It has been a pleasure to work with Michelle, and I wish her nothing but success in the future. I would work with her in the future, and recommend her to anyone and everyone I know that gets engaged.

Thank you so, so much for capturing one of the best days of our lives!!!!!!!!!!

Kelly and Mike:

Hazel Eye Photography was one of the easiest and best choices we made when planning our wedding. Although we were a little hesitant about our modeling abilities, Michelle made our engagement shoot fun and easy. We had so many amazing pictures , it was hard to choose just one for our save the dates.  One the day of our wedding Michelle and her partner were able to capture beautiful moments that we will cherish forever. We just finished making our wedding album and can’t wait to get it back. Michelle always responded promptly to emails and phone calls. She is the reliable photography that you want on your wedding day.

Laura and John:

Michelle from Hazel Eye Photography was both our engagement and wedding photographer. We could not be more pleased with the photographs we have from both shoots! The quality of service provided by Hazel Eye Photography is excellent. Michelle and her assistant photographer were extremely professional throughout our wedding day.They were punctual, reassuring, and friendly throughout our ceremony and reception. Michelle has a phenomenal eye for awesome shots! She did a great job of capturing photographs that we would not have even thought to ask for during the wedding. In addition, Michelle does a terrific job of sending the photographs to her client in a very reasonable amount of time. Our album was absolutely beautiful, and our framed pictures look stunning! We have received many compliments on our pictures and album from friends and family. We highly recommend Michelle and Hazel Eye Photography!! Laura & John

Lauren and Craig:

I first came across Michelle’s work from a former coworker of mine. I loved her style as well as her eye for not only the subjects she was shooting but the backdrops as well. She really has such a wonderful gift. From our first meeting I knew she was the photographer for us. Michelle is so sweet and easy going she made it so much fun to be photographed. My husband and I really hate our picture being taken but we actually had fun during our shoots. We had an engagement session as well as a full wedding day. There are so many pictures that I love. She is so talented and I can’t thank her enough! The turn around time to receive the pictures as well as the album were unbelievably fast! I am so so happy I chose Hazel Eye Photography and would recommend her to anyone who wants beautiful pictures 🙂 Thanks again for everything

Stacey and Dave:

Michelle was really great throughout the process. Even though I was a “nervous bride”, she did everything in her power to make me feel confident that our day would go smoothly. She even went out of her way to make sure we found the perfect place to take our photos. She also successfully put up with all of my and my mom’s craziness. Michelle is sweet as pie, fun, and down to earth so that she’ll make you laugh. Even though she’s young, she’s professional but not stuffy or outdated. She worked with me on my album without killing me even though I’m very indecisive and picky. I haven’t received the actual album yet since I just finalized it (*finally*), but I’m sure it’ll turn out great. Thank you Michelle for capturing our day beautifully!

Michelle and Frank:

I looked around for a while for our wedding photographer. My husband doesn’t like taking pictures, which made my choice pretty difficult. We ultimately chose Michelle because of her laid back personality, AND her awesome picture taking! She listened to all of our ideas, and even made my husband comfortable taking his picture. We definitely made the right decision and we love all of our wedding pictures. I’m currently pregnant and can’t wait for her to shoot our newborn pictures!

Melissa and DJ:

I found out about Michelle from TheKnot when I was researching possibly photographers for my July, 2014 wedding. I contacted her and met with her soon after, and I knew immediately upon meeting her and seeing her blog/past photos that she would be a perfect fit to capture the special moments on our wedding day! She worked with us and was so accommodating in regard to the scheduling of our engagement shoot. Michelle was an absolute professional and helped to make our pre-ceremony getting ready, first look, ceremony, and receptions pictures such a wonderful experience! I would most definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for wonderful service and gorgeous/creative wedding photos! Thank you so very much for helping to make our special day perfect Michelle!

Jessica and Ron:

Highly recommended! Michelle was amazing to work with. She was the photographer for both our engagement session and our wedding day. My husband and I absolutely love our photos! Michelle is very creative and has a knack for taking candid photos without being intrusive. She was very fun and easy to work with. We are so happy that Michelle was able to provide us with wonderful memories that we can look back on for years to come.

Adrienne and David:

Michelle is awesome. She was recommended to us by a photographer friend who often works with her on weddings. She accommodated our unusual requests throughout the process and was so pleasant and professional. The day of the wedding, she handled everything so that we didn’t have to think about it, which is great after months of planning. Everyone loves our pictures! Thanks, Michelle!

Nancy and Logan:

After considerable research looking for the perfect photographer, my husband (fiancé at the time) and I were so glad to find Michelle. Michelle displayed outstanding professionalism and flexibility. We had to reschedule our engagement session twice due to the unforgiving weather, and our wedding day took place during the ultimate NJ heat wave of 2013. Yet both Michelle and her assistant photographer remained engaged, helpful, and cheerful. Michelle gave us a lot of room to input our own sense of creativity and was never pushy. Our photos turned out wonderful – a unique blend of modern and romantic feel with a whimsical touch – exactly what we were hoping for. Our final leather-bound album turned out beautiful, and we will get to cherish this keepsake for years to come. Thanks, Michelle!

We both highly recommend Michelle as “the” photographer for your special day!

Brittany and Rob:

I first saw Hazel Eye photography at my brother’s wedding in 2012. I was so impressed with the professionalism, knowledge, and the way Michelle put them at ease on the day of their wedding. I knew that when it was my turn I had to have her shoot my wedding. She worked within our budget and made sure that we were getting everything that we wanted. Hazel Eye took care of every little detail on the big day so we didn’t have to stress or worry about a thing. They took so many photos that day that it took us over a week to put together our album because there were so many great shots to chose from. Hazel Eye did a fantastic job and any couple would be lucky to have them at their wedding!

Erin and Jamie:

Michelle from Hazel Eye captured our wedding day in a way that makes us feel like we are reliving it every time we flip through the photos. She was very easy to work with and responded to emails and texts immediately. She was not only a photographer but helped make the day flow smoothly. We ran into a potential crisis when we couldn’t do our first look photos at the hotel as planned before sharing a limo to the ceremony. Michelle quickly solved the problem by offering to drive the groom to the new photo location. Michelle also captured many, many candid moments without being intrusive. She is fabulous and we would give her the highest of recommendations!

Anita and Varun:

Michelle (and second shooter, John) did a fantastic job for our wedding day photography -we couldn’t have been more pleased and still revisit our pictures constantly! We were debating a few different photographers and were so happy we decided to go with Hazel Eye -an amazing job! Michelle was able to truly capture the special moments of our day beautifully and we loved that our personality was evident throughout our pictures. There are so many gorgeous “gem” pictures -we are so happy to have so many beautiful pictures that captured every element of the day. Michelle also really listened and went out of her way to make sure she knew what we wanted and was extremely responsive, which we were very impressed by. She was super patient and energetic throughout the day -amazing people skills even in the midst of so much activity (the usual craziness of a wedding day :))! An extremely positive experience and fabulous pictures to cherish for a lifetime -we would highly recommend!

Maribel and Brian:

My wedding was scheduled for the 27th of August, but hurricane Irene came. The wedding was postponed. Michelle made herself very flexible and accessible to us. She was very understanding. My pictures are beautiful. Thank you, you did a great job, the different locations, all of my friends are there. The couple pics are fantastic. The children, group pics, the cake, etc…, the black and white pics are fabulous. One of my favorite is where the hands are touching; without faces you captured the emotion, the moment when we became one before the “I do’s” that is my album cover. They are all great!!!!, You made it difficult for me to choose my favorite. I can’t say enough about your work ethics. We are very happy with them. Thank you for staying with us after your days work.

Kelly:

I was scared to look. But man… you are a genius.  There were so many good ones… and I’m VERY UBER critical of myself in pics.  … I really liked soooo many! You did a great job.

Maria:

I just wanted to let you know I finally got a chance to view the pictures, and they are beautiful!!! Thank you so much for all you did for Michelena’s 1st Birthday your photography is super!

Gina:

Michelle you take such fantastic pictures! every picture is my favorite picture.   Thank you soo much for taking pictures of my baby girl.  These memories will last a life time.

Baby Ava:

Thank you Auntie Michelle for always taking such pretty pictures of me!  I will have you to thank when I become a supermodel!

Lynn & Pete:

Thank you for recording our special day.  We will always have wonderful pictures and memories of our day.
