The Hinojosa (ee-no-ho-sah) Philosophy

We believe that weddings are a social celebration of a very sacred commitment. We feel honored to be participants in every wedding we shoot and treat both the day and the people involved with the highest level of respect. Most of all, weddings are a day filled with beauty and magic that emerges effortlessly. We believe our job is to capture that magic in the most authentic way – unobtrusively, honestly, joyfully. We are a cutting edge photography studio, offering the most recent advances in the photography field. We are always well versed in the latest wedding trends and bride preferences. Our approach is contemporary and always in the best of taste. We strive for the perfect combination of timeless elegance and fresh style.

Our focus is on journalistic style photography. We limit the number of posed and staged photographs and try instead to highlight the laughter, tears, and passion that you and your guests will be feeling without our heavy involvement. We understand that each couple is unique in their style, personality, and biography and strive to produce images that reflect that individuality. The era of assembly line coverage and common, ordinary albums is over. We understand our client needs for exclusive, classic products and exceed their expectations. We represent the grace, distinction, and style that is possible in wedding photography.

 

About Veronica:

From the moment I first realized that I loved photography, I knew I was onto something special. As I looked through our family albums, I realized that I wasn’t in very many photos. It was then when my mother told me that I didn’t want to be in the family picture because I always wanted to take the photo. That was the perfect precursor to my vocation today. I started Hinojosa Photography almost 10 years ago after formal training at Columbia College, and my active status in the Professional Photographers Association (PPA) keeps me up-to-date with industry trends while staying true to my natural, artistic photography style.

When I photograph a couple, a family, or a wedding, I try to capture their real-life relationship organically; it’s not about making people look different or having them perform for the camera. I want my clients to recognize their personalities–and the way they look when they’re truly in love–in every single picture I take so that they could savor every moment of that day and have beautiful memories to last them a lifetime. We start working with our clients during an engagement session, which serves as both a visual testimony of your connection as well as a chance to work out any camera jitters you may have. Then when the big day finally arrives, the process will be familiar and you can set aside your reservations and enjoy every moment.

When I’m not caring for two awesome kids, spending time with my husband, walking our dog, or living behind the camera, I make it a point to travel as often as possible and document a certain number of destination weddings every year. Seeing the country while documenting such an important day for clients remains one of my greatest pleasures in both my photography business and in my life. And, as I did for our family who still reminisce over the many family photographs I took 20 years ago, I look forward to creating unique, beautiful photography with you, which will act as a window back to your special moments for years to come.

 

We look forward to connecting with you!
