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!”

Morgan and Ryan

“Hawk was exactly what I was looking for in a wedding photographer. He took amazing pictures that I will cherish. He caught amazing moments without being obtrusive. As a local photographer, they had done countless weddings at my church, the park where we did bridal party pictures and reception. This put me at ease knowing they’ve had experience and could capture the day perfectly. They delivered my flash drive, as promised, prior to returning home from my honeymoon.”

Anthony & Lisa

New Milford, CT

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.
