Debbie + Nate >> San Francisco Dream Team
"Halle is one of those people who can find a way to immediately connect to everyone and everything around her, from adults to dogs to babies to nature. She has a natural ability to read people as well as the environment she's in and we think this is what makes her such a wonderful travel photographer. We took a risk hiring a photographer who had never been to San Francisco before, but we're so glad we did! Halle rose above the cliches you often see in SF wedding and engagement photos, so many of which cause the couple to be dwarfed by the city's amazing sights. Instead, she focused on the energy we had as a couple and used her fresh perspective of the city's mood and beauty to frame us. She was very open to suggestion, but we honestly deferred to her the vast majority of the time because her artistic eye is so sharp, thoughtful, and insightful. Predictably, the SF weather was problematic, but Halle never got discouraged and she worked SO FAST that she amazingly managed to make the wind and fog work to her advantage before it destroyed our hair! We are both shy to get our photo taken, but you would never know it from the photos Halle took. She made us feel so comfortable and her direction was so gentle that we honestly sometimes would just get lost in the moment and forget we were 'posing.' In fact our time taking photos with Halle made for some of the most romantic times we shared during our wedding weekend! We would absolutely recommend Halle to anyone getting married or wanting photos taken for any reason anywhere! She's a fearless and smart traveler. She is open and genuine in her interactions and that clearly translates to her photography. She is extremely trustworthy and self-sufficient, which we think is also very important for travel photography. Halle is a true Earth Mama--she's in tune with her surroundings, so she can blend in wherever, but she also has a quiet strength about her that makes you feel like you can depend on her to get the job done, no matter the circumstance. She did this for us, and we are so grateful to her!"

"What an amazing photographer!! She makes taking pictures fun! She always has a great vision in her head, and then goes above and beyond to take wonderful pictures. My fiance and I couldn't have asked for more beautiful engagement photos that just capture the love and spirit of us! Thanks Halle for making our time with you so special!!"

"Love this lady, her electric energy is the reason our shoot turned out so spectacular! Oh, and I suppose her wealth of creativity and talent probably also played a hand ;). She was not only full of good ideas, but was able to accurately capture who we are as a pair in our photo session. She is a genius and a joy and a beauty and everything and everything more. Fan for life!"
"I love Halle! Each image contains a beautiful and unique quality, which might be attributed to her beautiful soul. Every moment with Halle is filled with boundless curiosity and adventure. She has a comforting presence and honest nature. She truly can capture an emotion or personality and make it shine in imagery. Keep doing wonderful things!"
