Love Notes

I’ve spend the past 4 days trying to write an email to you to let you know how much it means to us to have such beautiful photos of our day. I simply can not find the words, other then THANK YOU!! The pictures are absolutely gorgeous and we are so happy that we have them to remind us of the day as it went SO quickly and is still such a blur to both of us. We’ve gotten so much feedback from our family telling us how beautiful the pictures are (of course, you made my Mom cry again~ she just can’t hold it together), just amazing!

I can’t tell you how happy we are with the album, and the photo options you guys provided us!!! They are absolutely fabulous!  Thanks again for everything, working with you two could not have been a better experience… the day was everything we hoped it to be, and we have some fantastic pictures to remember it by!

Lisa Gerber



We cannot thank you enough for everything you did for us. The whole process was such a wonderful experience — the pictures turned out better than I had dreamed and we will cherish them for the rest of our lives.

PS – My mom has now cried a total of five times. Every time she watches the video…  =)

Corey Anderson



Your pictures are outstanding!  Everyone is raving over how great you two were able to capture and ‘tell’ a story of the entire day.
We couldn’t be happier with the pictures.

Lindsey & Dave Simmonds



I love the photos!  You two did such a wonderful job capturing the day.  I feel like I can relive the day by watching the slideshow.  Thank you so much!  This is priceless:)

It is amazing that I truly don’t even remember seeing either of you the whole night.  Looking back I remember the conversations and moments you captured but I don’t remember you being there.  The mark of a great photographer I’m sure!

Kellie & Pat Sauter



I am beyond happy with these photos! There are so many special ones, I don’t even know where to begin! I may have grumbled–slightly–to myself–at the cost of your work.  However, one clearly gets what one pays for! The pictures that were taken by our rehearsal evening photographer are not even on the same planet as yours! You are a master at what you do! You aren’t just a photographer, you are truly an artist. I can’t thank you enough for the beautiful photographs you took for us.

Wendy L. ( mother of groom)



Oh my gosh!  We love, love, LOVE the pictures!!  You guys did such a wonderful job!!  I could just look at them all day, everyday – which I kind of do!!

Lauren & Matt Heinricy



My wife and I had the pleasure of Brian and Sara documenting our big day and could not be happier with the end result! In searching for a photographer that met our high standards of artistry/design and professionalism we found that they were few and far between, but from the very beginning Brian and Sara proved to be committed to ensuring that we were completely satisfied with our pictures and the coverage of our wedding. In the end, we could not be happier with our pictures, and the fact that we have a completely custom wedding album to showcase them in is the icing on the cake. I would highly recommend Brian Hall Photographers to anyone who is getting who is getting married, and thank them for the extremely high quality of service that we received.

Nathan & Emily Hall



Thank you So much for sharing your time & talent. We LOVE our photos, and we know our family and friends will too.

Jessica & Jeff


We absolutely LOVE the pics that you got!  You are not only amazing at taking pictures but you are also pros at capturing the moment!  It was fun to relive those emotions and reflect on that fabulous day!   We were LOVED the one with the fireworks.  It was so great that you were able to combine two different pictures to capture my dream!  This was an awesome favor and I’m so grateful that you guys got it! Thanks for everything!!  You guys were soooooooooooooo fun to work with too!!!

Rebecca & Kevin



We love the wedding photos! Thank you so much for your great work. We really couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out.

Jolene & Drew



If we haven’t expressed our gratitude enough…we are still in love with our wedding photos.  The moments you captured are priceless.  I am recommending you to everyone!  You are very talented and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being there from beginning to end on our wedding day.

So glad we found you!  Thanks again!!    –

Kara & Scott



Hey Brian!! Just wanted to drop you a quick hello and see how you have been? Our year anniversary is coming up and I wanted to thank you again for the amazing job you two did at our wedding.  I’m still getting compliments on the pictures a year later.

Brittany Myers



I just wanted to drop a note and say THANK YOU for everything! Eric and I really appreciated your flexibility and willingness to work with our unique situation. My family is still talking about how awesome they thought you and Sarah were. Everyone enjoyed working with both of you.

My husband and I got engaged during our senior year of college, so planning a wedding in the midst of graduating, trying to find a job, and the thought of moving in the near future was stressful. Planning a wedding from a distance was difficult and we relied a lot on my mom to help us with our initial search for a photographer, bakery, DJ, and florist. My mom had a friend whose daughter recently had a wedding where Brian was the photographer, so she told me to take a look at his website. I immediately fell in love with his style. He captured moments. He made every wedding magical. After looking at his site, we went to meet him. Right when we arrived at his studio and he greeted us I felt more at ease. After meeting with Brian, I knew we would be using him as our photographer. He was so kind, easy to work with, and made it seem so simple. Throughout the process, Brian was easy and fun to work with, flexible, and very professional. It has been almost six months since our wedding and I still look at the photos all the time. He and his associates did an amazing job with everything. He made our wedding less stressful and reminded me that “you aren’t having a wedding to take pictures, you are taking pictures because you are having a wedding.

Tracey Baird



We would like to thank you for the wonderful job you did with our wedding photos! Working with you was such a joy – you made us feel immediately at ease from the time we started with engagement photos in the winter all the way through the end of our wedding celebration in the summer. People are still complimenting us on the beautiful images and we smile every time we look at them. We also LOVE the custom album you made for us as well as the gorgeous box it came in! You definitely captured all the joy and excitement from our special day.


Yara & Ted


I cannot get over what an amazing job you did on our photos!!!! I look at them almost daily!! You and Sara did an amazing job. I’m so glad that we went with you and will make sure to sing your praises to all our friends that will be needing a photographer in the near future!

My wife Melissa and I were referred to Brian through a colleague of his.  So when we looked through Brain’s portfolio on his website, we knew that his style was exactly what we were looking for!

We were married on a beautiful September day in the Quad Cities, and Brian & Sara’s photography captured it all perfectly!   We love looking back at our wedding album because it tells such a wonderful story about our special day.  In addition, prior to our wedding, Brian traveled to see us in Chicago and spend a day around the city for our engagement photos.  For both Melissa and I, it was our first ‘photo shoot’…but Brian did a wonderful job putting us at ease while finding the perfect settings all around Chicago.  And of course, we were absolutely thrilled with how the photos came out!

Thank you to Brian and his wonderful team for helping to make our day so memorable!

I have been admiring, giggling, tearing up, and sighing at each and everyone one.  They turned out so good! Thanks again so much for your hard work!  And tell Brian that, again, he did a fabulous job!!  I am so thrilled and excited.  I don’t even know how I am going to choose which ones I want to order in special sizes.  There are just so many of them that I love!

Abbey and Scott



Brian Hall is an amazing photographer, who takes pride in his work. He offers a new, modern approach to wedding photography by taking journalistic, “in the moment” style pictures. Rather than being stuck with tons of posed shots, we have pictures that take you straight back to that moment of your wedding. We had an engagement session with Brian, which was easy and relaxed, even with our crazy weiner dog. During the wedding, Brian and Sarah were very professional, and attentive. We did not even notice them taking pictures; they were not intrusive at all. After seeing the pictures, I couldn’t even remember them standing there snapping away. Our albums are custom, amazing, and just a cluster of memories. We ordered a large 12×12 album as well as 2 parent albums as wedding gifts. Our families really enjoy having them as a memory. Brian was the best investment and choice for our wedding.

Katie Schroder



Again, we LOVE all of the pictures! Looking at the pictures, you feel like you are there…..even if you are not.

Allison W.



My husband Chris and I chose Brian Hall as our wedding photographer based on many wonderful reasons. Brian and his staff are not only professional, but outgoing and empathetic. They consistently made us feel comfortable and excited about our big day.  We also chose Brian because of his flexibility and his extreme work ethic.  I can’t imagine having more beautiful engagement and wedding photos then the ones that Brian and his staff shot for us. Every time I look through our albums it truly re-creates our day!

Thank you!!!

Katie and Chris T.



Thank you so much for getting us the pictures so fast! They are so beautiful and truly captured the day. You and Sara are incredibly talented, and I am amazed at how well the pictures turned out. It’s been really fun to look at them and remember our wedding day.  –

Allison V.



Amazing!!!  Six months later and we still love looking at our wedding photos!  The pictures evoke an emotion that almost recreates our wedding day, and to us, that is priceless.  They beautifully captured every moment as they happened.  You guys are so easy to work with, patient, and give great artistic advice!  I know you genuinely cared about making the happiest day of my life exactly what I expect it to be.  Also, the hand crafted bound book that we received beautifully and artistically tells the story of our wedding day…it is something we will cherish forever.  And a smaller version for each of our parents – how perfect!!

So happy we found Brian Hall Photographers!

Kara C.



Brian Hall Photographers is PHENOMENAL!  My husband and I were married March 20, 2010 and Brian took our engagment as well as our wedding photos.  We really appreciated Brian taking the time to get to know our personalities before our engagement session.  The pictures from before, during and after our wedding ceremony were amazing!  Their photojournalistic approach and attention to detail is remarkable.  We chose to have our full group and family photos taken after the ceremony; this process was seamless and took a very short time.  Brian also did a fantastic job designing our wedding album.  We are so happy we decided to have Brian Hall Photographers record such an important part of our lives.  We will definitely recommend Brian to anyone planning such a special occasion.

Rachel Schmit



Everything we wanted in a wedding photographer.  Brian had the perfect balance of being organized and laid back on our wedding day.  He was on our schedule, we weren’t on his.  He put me at ease and made sure I knew that he was just there to capture it all for us.  His style is unlike other photographers we looked at and we loved the candid shots he was able to get of us and our guests.  When Brian sent us our album, we had a blast looking through and realizing all the things that happened at our wedding that we didn’t even know about!  We have priceless photos of our wedding day that we will cherish for years to come.

Amanda and Andy R.



My husband Chris and I chose Brian Hall as our wedding photographer based on many wonderful reasons. We knew we wanted someone who was willing to incorporate traditional shots, as well a more journalistic approach to our engagement and wedding photos, which was what we had seen of Brian’s work.  Brian and his staff are not only professional, but outgoing and empathetic. They consistently made us feel comfortable and excited about our big day.  We also chose Brian because of his flexibility and his extreme work ethic.  I can’t imagine having more beautiful engagement and wedding photos then the ones that Brian and his staff shot for us. Everytime I look through our albums it truly re-creates our day!

Katie Tritle



My husband and I had a destination wedding planned, and due to an untimely family accident right before our wedding, we had to change our plans – ALL of our plans, even down to the date of our wedding. Brian was so compassionate to our situation, and was very flexible with his services to ensure we got exactly what we wanted. He went above-and-beyond what a normal wedding vendor would do.

Kelli K.



We both enjoyed our experience with Brian Hall Photographers, from the beginning with our engagement pictures and all the way through our wedding.  The photo journalistic approach that they use was exactly what we were looking for.  When we went into their office after our wedding we were pleasantly surprised at how many quality pictures were taken throughout our entire wedding day.  We enjoy showing everyone our wedding album!
