We are just blown away by everything, we love the customization of the USB drive itself, the packaging, and of course the absolutely gorgeous photos! We have been so thrilled reliving all of those moments through your beautiful pictures, and we could not be more happy with how they all turned out. Thank you so much for everything, it was just beyond beyond what we could have imagined. Have a beautiful weekend, and just know that you brought so much joy to our wedding and the start of our married life together! xo

Heather was nothing but kind and professional from our first conversation through the delivery of our albums. Her professionalism and planning leading up to the wedding made us feel so confident that it was nothing but smiles and no worries on our big day. Heather and her team did an amazing job, our photos turned out beautifully and I still look through them daily four months after the wedding! Even the delivery of our photos and albums were so thoughtful and presented beautifully. I could not recommend Heather and her team at HLS Photography enough!

I've put off writing this review for our May wedding because I could find the words to articulate how wonderful Heather was. Heather was professional and clear upfront regarding packages & contracts at our first meeting; more importantly she beamed when she showed me previous clients' albums. I loved her natural style and her enthusiasm was infectious. Heather kept in touch throughout the planning process and alerted us to potential problems in the schedule (we didn't do a first look, and therefore had a somewhat limited amount of time to do photos). She was flexible, especially day of when it was intermittently pouring! She knew which photos were my must-haves, and which family group shots had to be taken. I wanted my album to capture the day how it was-- all the candid silly special life-changing moments as they unfolded. Heather has a real gift for this specific type of photography and this is why we chose her to be our photographer. Heather seamlessly blended into my wedding party while we got ready and put my photo-phobic self at ease (no small feat). Her assistant tagged along with my husband's group to their barber shop and those photos were every bit as amazing. So much laughter and candidness was captured as the boys were drinking scotch and getting straight razor shaves. My favorite photos are from the ceremony-- there are so many shared glances captured and beautifully shot photos of silliness and all of us dissolving into laughter. Heather captured the love, laughter and light of our rainy day wedding so artfully. All these months later, perusing my online album remains my preferred pick-me-up after a long day. She patiently worked with us to craft our album, a gorgeous leather bound book with our top photos. If this was a yelp review, it'd be flagged as suspicious for being so positive. I can't honestly think of one thing I wish had happened differently. Heather is uniquely talented-- with her photos she gave us the gift of being able to be transported back to all of those moments. I would (and have) recommend Heather to anyone in the Philly region and beyond who wants candid moments captured, for weddings or other life events.

I recently had the pleasure of working with HLS Photography for my wedding, and can't help but share my experience with other brides! It was nothing short of perfect! HLS Photography was there for my engagement photos, my destination wedding in beautiful Costa Rica, and my state-side reception. I originally chose HLS Photography because I really loved the style and energy of the pictures. They felt real, simple, natural, and classic. Heather, the owner and lead photographer of HLS Photography was great! She was professional, organized, and always one step ahead of me and my planning. Her extensive experience was evident, as she thought of everything and helped me to sort through details I otherwise would have neglected. She was timely, attentive, and energetic at all times. One of the best parts of working with Heather was that she really took the time to get to know us as a couple. She listened, and really understood our vision and style, which showed through in all of our photos. Because we hosted a destination wedding, we initially considered hiring a photographer who was a Costa Rica local. However, after careful research we decided to hire HLS for all of our photography needs. Though we learned she was an experienced traveler, my husband and I were impressed with how effortlessly Heather was able to coordinate the details of her journey and accommodations and settle in to Costa Rican life with ease! She helped us to pick the perfect spot for our beach ceremony, and soothed a few game-day jitters. She even offered additional photo sessions for other friends and family staying in the area. Now that all of our events are complete there is a nice flow and consistency throughout all of our pictures that we would not have gotten if we had used multiple photographers. In addition it is convenient to have all of our images hosted in one gallery with HLS Photography. I really cannot say enough about the positive experience we had working with HLS Photography. I would recommend Heather and her team for engagements, weddings, and more! I know we look forward to using her services again in the future!

We cannot thank you enough for all that you have done! We love our pictures and our album is AMAZING!

Heather and Patience photographed our wedding last October and I can't express what an overwhelmingly positive experience it was to work with them. I've had the pleasure of knowing Heather personally through a previous job and it wasn't until she walked into the room where my bridal party was getting ready that the first "tears of joy" started streaming from my eyes. Heather is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is professional, full of light and creativity, and passionate about what she does; it truly shines through in her work. If you are hoping to work with genuine and talented photographers who will take the time to really capture your personality and vision, I recommend HLS Photography for any and every special life occasion! Our photos are stunning, I still look at them all of the time!

Extremely talented and professional! The results were amazing, and everyone LOVES my wedding album. The shots captured were unique and beautiful- really brought my day to life. They even travelled from Philadelphia to Connecticut to do my wedding! Extremely satisfied and will hire again for future gatherings.
