Since starting Hand and Arrow Photography in early 2017, we have strived to capture beautiful photographs for every person we have worked for. We aim to separate ourselves from other photographers in the Lehigh Valley and around the world by offering a more intimate experience. We aim to build trust and comfort during our sessions by revealing how our approach to photography is not what you would expect. We always want to keep things feeling relaxed and fun, and for the end result of the images to be a reflection of the people we are capturing with our cameras.
As we have had the opportunity to work with many individuals, couples, and families and expose them to our work, we have been met with an overwhelmingly positive response to our photography and our willingness to go above-and-beyond for those we work for. At the end of the day, we feel as if those we work with become more than just "clients," but rather much more like friends and family.
For all of this and more, we are exceedingly grateful, as every piece of positive feedback serves as fuel for us taking Hand and Arrow to new levels.
On this page, you will find some feedback we have received from past and current clients. The quotes are pulled from reviews published online on sites like The Knot, email communications, and Facebook.
"OMG! I just finished showing Alex all of the pictures and we love them!! I had the chance to scroll through them quickly with my mom earlier today and she teared up (imagine what the wedding pictures will do to her!). Thank you so so much! We had a great time taking the pictures and getting to know you guys during our session. You both made us feel so comfortable, even though I was super nervous! I can't wait to share these with family and friends and I'm even more excited to be working with you guys for our wedding. :)" - Erica + Alex (Engagement)
"We LOVEEEE them!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! We've spent the last four days scrolling through the gallery and finding new favorites each time. I am just so amazed how beautiful you can make a grayish day and brown bare November trees look--hah! And of course, we love how you captured us :). It is a tough competition between the posed "model shots", and the natural moments (that B&W walking hand-in-hand one just gets me). We couldn't be happier." - Jen & Matt (Engagement)
"Photography was very important to me for our wedding day, and I spent a lot of time looking at different portfolios trying to find someone who checked all those boxes for me. Jes & Chris are a wonderful husband and wife photography team, and we loved working with them for our recent engagement photo session. They check off all the professional criteria (prompt email responses, solid quotes/contracts, previous experience, timeline guidance) but are also just great to spend a day with. My fiancé and I are pretty awkward, but Jes and Chris had us feeling like models after our engagement photo session. Not only did we like them as people, but we also adore the photos. I have easily never had a better photo of me, and they really captured us and the attractive version of us even! I've received so many compliments about the engagement photos and the style of them." - Victoria & Erik (Engagement)
"Jess and Chris are the ultimate duo! My fiancé and I had a blast shooting with them this spring! Went left leaving like we were in a fairy tail. We love every single one of our photos, Jess and Chris captured one of our favorite days together! We would recommend Hand and Arrow a million times if we could!" - Brittany & Arie (Engagement)
"Jes and Chris were great on our wedding day and we had a ton of fun during our engagement photo session! They are so wonderful to work with and their photography is unique, raw, and SO beautiful. They really know how to capture emotion in their work. We are so excited to see them again for our "Day After" session at some point this year! Everyone asked who took our photos when we used them for our invitations and save-the-dates! We can't recommend them highly enough! Thank you, Jes and Chris!!!" - Emily & Collin (Engagement, Wedding)
