Words cannot describe how wonderful this photography team was. Between the engagement photos, the wedding portraits, the wedding pictures, and all the stuff in-between AND AFTER, Joe was incredible. His wife Rhonda works closely with him on most shoots, and she is terrific!
The wedding pictures were stunning, and we had most of them within a few days of the wedding. (Some he even displayed on a laptop next to the dance floor at the wedding!). And the wedding (photo) album he created...indescribable!!
Joe is one of the most talented photographers we have ever seen, and we are so lucky he was available to shoot our wedding. We connected with him right away during our engagement session, and knew instantly that he was the right choice for our wedding. We had 100% trust in him to get the perfect shots, and it was nice having one wedding detail that we didn't have to worry about :) We will definitely call Joe next time we need photography services!
Choosing the wedding photographer was the most important decision when it came to planning our wedding. The wedding pictures will be the lasting impression of the most important day of your life, right? But, when we found Joe Hendricks Photography, it was clear that he was the best of the best! From the first time we contacted him, Joe made every effort to make us feel welcome and in good hands. He even surprised us with our very first wedding gift to help us relax during the stressful wedding planning! During the engagement picture shoot, Joe made the effort to get to know our personalities and style to customize the pictures for us. We instantly felt at ease and we knew that Joe would make our special day the best. At the wedding, Joe felt more like a trusted friend than just a photographer. And, of course, Joe took the most amazing pictures that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. He was flexible, professional, friendly and his photographs are of the highest quality. Joe really has an eye for catching the subtle nuances and special moments that were shared not only between my husband and I, but also between my family and friends. During the wedding, he was tactful to shoot pictures behind the scenes, like a photographer ninja! (Lol) He even created scenes for specially for us at the end of the night, when we wanted to capture the full moon in our pictures. Strangely enough, weeks after the wedding, my friends and family weren't talking about how great the flowers, cake and food were (and they were awesome)- they were talking about how funny and talented Joe was! If anyone was ever considering a wedding photographer, I would most definitely recommend Joe for their event. Any bride would be lucky to have such a talented, professional and amazing photographer (and friend) as Joe Hendricks. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Yesterday was our wedding and reception, and before even getting our photos back (which always come super quick) I can already tell you how happy we are with Joe and Rhonda! They are the kind of people you just want to be friends with, let alone work with. Joe is always amazingly professional and fun at the same time. He made all our guests feel wonderful, got all the shots we wanted, and was always there when we needed him. His way of shooting is really quick and efficient, so you don't think he got the shot until he shows you a little preview, and it is always spot on. I couldn't recommend Joe and Rhonda any more. Trust me, book them, it is worth it.
I cannot brag enough on Joe and how amazing he is as a photographer and person. Joe stepped up when our original photographer unexpectedly passed away. He jumped in and honored our contract and even credited us the $1000 we paid to the previous photographer. He was a dream to work with on our engagement pictures and at our wedding! His wife Rhonda is also amazing! She sets up the appointments and everything. I will refer all my friends and family to Joe in the future!
We cannot say enough how happy with are with our wedding photos. We were married in January at the Red House in Franklin, Tennessee and were on a budget. We decided to splurge on our photos and Joe was worth every penny and more. Joe and his wife Rhonda were very easy to work with, and Joe was like a ninja at our wedding. Our guests were blown away with the quality of the photos. We have so many amazing photos, we're still having a hard time deciding which photos to print and display in our home. Joe's wife handles all of the contracting and administrative stuff, and she's amazing. Very cheery, responsive and just easy to work with. On site, Joe required little direction - we told him a few things that were important to us, and he captured the moments. Joe also provided a beautiful wedding album no more than two weeks after we were married. We really are just so happy with the photos - they are stunning and will be treasured for years to come.
Joe did such an amazing job with our photos! We had such a fun time throughout the whole process - from engagement photos to the actual wedding. We always got responses really quickly from either Joe or Rhonda and they went above and beyond what I expected. Joe was such fun the day of our wedding - sometimes photos are a bore and he made it fun for everyone. We didn't opt for a lot of traditional shots and did more fun "in the moment" photos, which he captured so well! I have received so many comments from people on the photography and how fun our wedding looked - and that's all to Joe capturing those moments that we will want to revisit and look at for years to come. Joe turned around our photos very quickly and came over to our house to do a little "premiere" of the wedding photos. He gives you personal attention and you walk away from the experience knowing your special day was captured wonderfully!
I could not be more in love with the photos Joe took of our wedding. Not only were his photos more than I could have hoped for, he and Rhonda were so fun and easy to work with. The turnaround on the photos is so quick as well. You can tell he loves what he does, that love comes through in his work.
My husband and I absolutely LOVED Joe! Our wedding pictures were gorgeous and working with him was wonderful! He blended right into the background during those special moments like first looks with my husband, father and brother. He was extemely quick getting shots of the bridal party and family with every picture top quality. He made our experience fun and helped to make our special day perfect!
Joe Hendricks is definitely the master of the candid photo. He was able to catch the most touching photos while being totally unobtrusive through the entire event. Whether it was a loving glance from a new husband to wife, or a teary look of affection from bride to father, Joe caught it all.
Hire Joe and he'll make your wedding photos something everyone will be talking about. He's incredibly creative and the photos capture the emotion of the moment. If you are looking for posed, artificial, pretty pictures of yourself with every hair in place and flattering camera angles, Joe may not be the guy for you. If you want pictures (hundreds of them) that will allow you to relive every moment of your wedding and connect you with the way you felt, and some really unique, creative, artistic photos in the mix, then you want this photographer. Joe is expensive but worth it. And you get a usb drive with all of your photos, which means you aren't locked in to buying prints from him, so in the long run you spend less. Years from now, if you decide you want a picture you didn't order, you won't have to worry about tracking your photographer down to get your pics because you have them all. Joe is really flexible. If there are certain shots you want, make that clear on the front end and you'll get them for sure. But you'll be happiest with the special shots you never would have even thought to ask for. If you respect what Joe does and allow him to work largely from his own inspiration you will get some really special photos. He offers an engagement session which will give you an idea of how he works and build the relationship. The wedding photos will be the better for it.
Joe Hendricks Photography was by far our favorite wedding vendor we had. He took our fairy tale day and made it come to life through our photos. We now are blessed with a story book of photos to capture every emotion throughout the day. He has such an eye for creative photos that you will be in awe of when you see completed. He even has so much patience for those of us who aren't "pros" in front of the camera :). I had heard so many brides tell me how long they waited to see their wedding photos...not with Joe! He already had a quick slideshow of photos from earlier in the day at the reception for people to view at the reception AND we got to see several more within a couple days. And we barely had to wait 2 weeks to see ALL of them. His professionalism and promptness is remarkable. His wife Rhonda is on top of things and will help you come up with a helpful timeline and is a life saver when you're crunched for time on the wedding day...keeping things moving along and even being patient when you need "one more shot"! I can't recommend Joe Hendricks Photography enough to you as you are choosing your wedding photographer. IT was the best choice we made!!!!
Joe Hendricks is truly one of the most creative, fun, passionate and talented photographers! I feel blessed and one of the luckiest brides ever to have these amazing pictures to show for the rest of my life. Joe makes you and everyone feel at ease so there is never any need to feel scattered because they have it all together. I would ONLY recommend Joe to my friends.
