Here’s just a snippet of the things my wonderful couples have to say about our experience together.

Having Hilary as your photographer means you get SO much more then just capturing the most beautiful photos possible! All of my family members and bridal party and friends raved about how well she delegated what shots were next, keeping time, and most importantly, she made EVERYONE feel so comfortable and happy. (My bridesmaids have all been married or in weddings and they all said Hilary was the best photographer they have worked with- seriously!) The second best part of working with Hilary was her suggestion to hire Oxford Media Films for our wedding video. They have a package deal that combines the photo and video and it was SO WORTH IT!!!! They already had their groove down so they knew what to expect from each other. Who needed what shot, the photographer did not get in the way of the videographer because they have worked together so many time it was harmony! I felt at ease being around them on my wedding day because there was no tension and all positive vibes from them. If I had to do it all over again I would hire them both in a heart beat!!! So in a nutshell, Hilary is seriously THE BEST wedding photographer I could have ever imagined. Not only is her work SO BEAUTIFUL but she is just the sweetest person who will make your wedding day even better than you expected. Thank you for capturing the most special day of my life, Hilary!!!!

Ladies and gents, stop your photographer search here! Hilary was a dream come true to work with. If I had it to do over, I would choose her every time. There may be cheaper photographers out there, but odds are they won’t provide nearly the same personal investment in your day as Hilary will. From the start of our experience with Hilary, she was so much fun and put my husband at ease during our engagement shoot. Neither of us felt very comfortable showing affection in front of a camera, but at the end of the shoot we were giggling and kissing like it was totally natural for us! During the wedding she was an absolute lifesaver. She kept me from having a stress-induced meltdown, and she was so experienced with the flow of weddings that she was able to answer tons of the “wedding coordinator” type questions we had. She was so much fun at the wedding that she truly felt like one of our guests – and we were so sad when she had to leave at the end of the night!! The photos from our wedding were absolutely stunning, and friends and family cannot stop talking about how fabulous she was. Go ahead and check the photographer off your to do list, because you’ve just found the best around!!!

Hilary is absolutely amazing!! We had an amazing engagement session with her last October and we both couldn’t believe how comfortable she made us feel! As a result, we were in LOVE with our engagement pictures and had such a hard time choosing which ones to use for our save the dates! She made that session so fun for us and really made us feel comfortable about our wedding day. Hilary was very responsive with any questions that I had and was very organized throughout our entire planning process. For the big day she and our second photographer came to our hotel and were both so comforting to a nervous bride! I loved how she listened to exactly what we wanted for our wedding day, but also provided everyone in our wedding party with direction and kept everything flowing so well! We were actually ahead of schedule with everything! Hilary and Melissa felt like family that just happened to be taking pictures of us! We just recently got our wedding pictures back and my husband and I are in love! I have shared them with friends and relatives and I have gotten so many compliments already! I would highly recommend Hilary Colleen Photography to anyone getting married in the future!

Our package came with engagement photos,which had given us a chance to get to know Hilary and how she photographs. She made us feel SUPER comfortable, when we actually felt really awkward posing in front of the camera. When it came to the wedding day, she again made me feel so comfortable and had a lot of good advice. During the reception when my bustle wouldn’t stay up and everyone was stepping on my dress, she took our one of her bobby pins, and used it to pin my dress in place… AMAZING and genius :). She goes above and beyond her job as a photographer which for me made the day more fun, and less stressful! She is *truly* gifted at what she does, and if there was an option to give more than 5 stars I absolutely would! I had researched A LOT of photographers in my planning process and I could not be happier with my decision. I *highly* recommend Hilary if you are looking for a fun, professional photographer..you will not regret it!

Hillary did a wonderful job working with us for our wedding @ The Mt. Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods NH. My husband is an event planner by trade and has several photographer contacts we could have selected but Hilary convinced us to try something new! We are so happy with the way she navigated our quirky personalities and dealt with our family members. The day of our wedding Hilary was extremely professional and her images came out fantastic. We are so happy with the quality and will undoubtedly enjoy her work for the rest of our lives! Thanks Hilary!

Church Landing, Meredith, New Hampshire
Hilary truly enriched our incredible wedding experience! Not only are our photos absolutely stunning, but her ease and efficiency and fun personality were such a positive element in our wedding. We 100% recommend Hilary’s photography services to any bride/groom/family that wants absolutely beautiful images that capture your family laughing with one another. We even were “that” couple and had to switch our date that we had initially booked with Hilary (our venue could no longer provide our original date due to events in the area) and her flexibility, professionalism, and upbeat nature eased some worry during that transition. Thank you so much, Hilary!!!

Where do I begin with my review for Hilary? Finding a photographer for your wedding at a reasonable price is no easy task. I searched for hours through websites and reviews trying to find a photographer who could capture each candid moment while at the same time coordinate pictures for my large and modern day family. When I came across Hilary’s website- there was no longer any doubt in my mind who I wanted to photograph my big day. So far, my husband and I have only seen the sneak peak photos, but can’t say enough about how much we love them. From the moment we met Hilary I knew she was going to be a great fit- her down to earth personality will make you feel at ease on your wedding day, but at the same time Hilary knows how to get things moving along and be efficient with the picture taking process. If you’re looking for a photographer, stop now- and book Hilary. You will not regret it. Hilary was a blast at our wedding- even staying an extra half hour to capture our exiting moments- dancing and smiling the whole time. Hilary also captured my sister’s big day back in June- and she has become quite well known in our family. I went looking for a wedding photographer, and what I found was a friend who happened to take our photos.

I honestly can’t say enough about how much I loved having Hilary photograph our wedding. She put both me and my husband at ease and made it such a fun experience, we knew after our engagement session that she was going to be so fun to have around at the wedding. On the wedding day Hilary was so nice to have around, she made sure we had water & champagne! She allowed us to have so much fun and really captured our personalities and our wedding party. We loved our engagement pictures & we have seen our sneak peak for our wedding day pictures & we already love them. Hilary is great at getting the pictures to you quickly! I could honestly keep saying our awesome Hilary is over and over again. If you are looking for a photographer I could not recommend Hilary more!!
