Connecticut Wedding Photography
“I decided to become a wedding photographer simply because I love telling stories with my camera and capturing the loving moments, the smiles, the laughter of a couple’s special day. It is a privilege to witness a wedding day unfold before me… from the anticipation of the bride or groom getting ready, to the moment when the couple first sees each other, to the final good-byes. Every week, I am lucky enough to witness a new celebration, a new beginning; and through my photography, I am able to make a real difference in the lives of the people that I meet. What could be more exciting!”
-Daryl Hawk of Hawk Photography

Daryl has such talent as a photographer, attention to detail and professionalism. You will be lucky to work with Daryl!
Neither my husband or I have ever felt comfortable in front of a camera before being photographed by Daryl and his team. Danny( videographer) , George (photo booth) and Daryl were so kind, fun, and knowledgeable that they quickly put us both at ease. The session was relaxed and fun, which allowed for photos that captured both our personalities. When we saw our gorgeous pictures we were amazed at how we loved every single one.
Beyond being an amazing photographer, Daryl is also extremely professional. He responds to emails quickly and goes above and beyond to make sure the entire process goes smoothly. We feel so lucky to have found him and are so excited that Daryl and his team were part of our wedding! If you are looking for an amazing photographer I would highly recommend Daryl!"

“Daryl from Hawk Photography has been amazing from the start. During the initial phone consultation, he was very informative, welcoming, and listened to what my husband and I wanted out of our wedding photos. He followed up with me throughout the entire year leading up to our wedding, and was always available to answer any questions that I had. He got to my wedding ceremony even before I arrived and was already taking photos. So many of my guests came up to me telling me what a fantastic job he was doing. He was so friendly and all of my friends and family liked him! He showed me a few of the shots he got on his camera and oh my are they gorgeous! I absolutely cannot wait to receive my wedding photos. A photographer is one of the most important aspects to a wedding, for they are your everlasting moments and memories of your once in a lifetime day. He took real candid shots, not just posed. This will show off a person’s true self. You MUST choose Hawk Photography for your wedding day photos, I promise you will not regret it. I could not be more pleased with his services."
"I have nothing but the upmost grandiose things to say about both Daryl and Frank. First off they arrived super early and took unscheduled photos and videos. This was a delightful surprise! Not only were they polite and professional throughout the whole wedding, but they bonded with my family and friends and even remembered names! They made my guests feel comfortable and important. Daryl and Frank were patient and productive and did everything with a smile from the heart. You can tell that this is not just a job for them, but more of what they love doing.
Daryl has an eye for catching the best photos, light, scenery, etc. He catches the best moments. It is absolutely impeccable. Prior to my wedding I sent Frank a detailed email of the various things I wanted him to record. On the wedding day I saw him doing exactly what I asked for and coming up with even better suggestions. They definitely dotted their Is and crossed their Ts without leaving one stone unturned. Aaaammmmaaazzzziiinnnnggg work!
I made a vow on my wedding day to recommend Hawk Photography & Video to all of my family and friends. Daryl and Frank were PERFECT in EVERY WAY and I will make sure to honor them by sending family and friends their way.
THANK YOU GUYS FOR MAKING THIS DAY SO SPECIAL TO ME!
P.S. Daryl has GORGEOUS studio and property where he invited us to take a free engagement photoshoot. Those pictures are ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS AMD STUNNING! I am sooo pleased!

It was my fiancé and I first professional photo shoot together and I couldn’t have been more happier with how everything turned out. Our engagement photos came out amazing and it helped tell our love for one another. There’s no need to go to multiple locations to get that perfect shot everything need is at the studio. From a waterfall, to a log cabin, and I wonderful forest backdrop. I would recommend Hawks photography for any occasion.
I had a long search in photographers because I feel this is one of the most important details in a wedding. When meeting with Daryl Hawk,my fiancé and I felt the perfect fit! His storybook concept of picture taking is just right, as we noticed in our recent engagement sitting with him. He doesn't over play the concept of posing, but more Importantly makes you feel comfortable; and the result was amazing pictures that we will love forever. The experience in this business is evident as he wants to make sure you get everything you want in picture packages. Daryl was more than willing to alter his package deals for us. I couldn't be more thrilled for next October to come so we can work with Hawk Photography again in capturing our love and wedding day. Five stars for Hawk Photography!
We found Daryl at the Hartford Bridal show. When we looked through the albums he had we instantly knew that he was the going to be our photographer. We recently did our engagement shoot. His level of professionalism and our level of comfort during the shoot were superb! His location was gorgeous and our photos came out spectacular! We could not be happier! We cannot wait for our wedding photos in September! Thanks Hawk Photography for helping us to create memories that will last a lifetime!
We just had our engagement pictures done, and they look amazing! The gardens at Daryl's studio we're a perfect backdrop. We can't wait to see how our wedding photos turn out, because we know they'll look fantastic!
Hawk Photography was a pleasure to work with Our photographers, Daryl Hawk and Shawn James were terrific. Always right there when needed and took such amazing photos.
Stress free, low-key, beautiful photos! Daryl communicates well, and turned our photos around in about three weeks! I would 100% recommend to couples who want a good mix of portraits and organic shots.
My experience with Hawk Photography has been an excellent one thus far. Daryl connected with me on several occasions, providing me with all the details I needed to make my decision to work with them. He has been tremendously professional, eager to hear my suggests and feedback and overall his work is beyond AMAZING. We had our engagement sitting with Daryl and received our images within a week. I was blown away at how beautiful the images were! The quality was definitely top of the line and I was more than happy with the final results. We are looking forward to continue working with Daryl until our wedding day in May. Even though he is affordably priced, quality is definitely not sacrificed. You will be happy you hired Hawk Photography.
