Beautiful Work!    posted 12/3/2010

I purposely did not go and read the other reviews for Marvin Hall’s photography. I am sure that all the reviews are proclaiming all the wonderful virtues of his work, and so I am just one more. However, I wanted to post and tell others who might be looking for a photographer that every penny they spend on choosing him would be well worth it – just look at his portfolio online! I have known Marvin for many years and had kept an eye on the beautiful work he was doing and the progress over the years to become the professional that he is today. Years of experience have created a very talented artist with both an eye for beauty and all the necessary equipment to not just get the job done, but to make it exceptional! He is not just a photographer, but indeed and artist. I have 5 children and another one got married this past Fall. Marvin was contracted to do the task, and he did remarkable work. He truly captured the event and all the glory of each moment in a special way. He takes great pride in the quality of his work, and thus takes measures to insure that he will produce just that. He is sensitive in the way he conducts himself prior to, during and after the vent; using only the best of manners. I highly suggest that if you are looking for someone to capture an event; especially a wedding, that you consider choosing Marvin Hall for the job. “You will not be disappointed” sounds terrible when it is something as important as a wedding- so instead, let me say, You can’t get any better than Marvin!

Chad & Lauren Testimonial


Coming from myself, Lauren, and my family, we would like to thank you so much for the incredible photography you have provided us with. We could not be more pleased with every single aspect of our experience with you. You were very easy to work with, communicated with us regularly, and captured amazing photos! We are soooo glad that we decided to go with the higher of the two packages we were contemplating. I must admit that prior to our experience with you, I was somewhat a skeptic about spending large money on photography for weddings. After our experience with you, I will always highly recommend spending as much as you can afford to ensure a great photography experience. Having said that, we strongly believe your prices are extremely reasonable for the quality (and quantity) of photography you provide. This is especially true when comparing you to the competition. We also enjoyed your very straight forward pricing system. From researching other photographers, we noticed some of them try to nickel-and-dime their customers. This was not the case when working with you.
Readdressing the most important aspect of the photography…the quality. Your quality of work is truly amazing! In both viewing your work and talking with you, it is very obvious that you have a lot of photography experience that leads to jaw dropping and tear inducing photos, albums, and videos. No amount of photography equipment or editing software can make up for lack of experience. So, while others may brag about their cameras and photoshop abilities, it is merely a diversion due to their lack of experience. Your experience is ultimately what leads to amazing photos that will be cherished forever! (Not to say you don’t have fancy cameras and great editing abilities, because you do!)
A final note on the cost of photography. I can honestly say that the money we spent on photography…no let me reword that…Marvin Hall’s photography, was the best money spent when compared to anything else for the wedding. Better than the flowers, tuxes, dresses, food, etc. For that, we thank you more than any one of our other vendors for your services. You have provided us with photos, albums, and videos that our entire family will cherish forever!
Thank you again so much!

Marvin, we LOVE our Wedding Album you made for us! It looks phenomenal! WAY beyond our expectations! I have showed it to pretty much everyone in our church, I think they’re getting sick of me asking if they’ve seen it, haha. Thanks so much for all the hard work and making it look beautiful!

Mark & Laura’s Wedding

Marv, nothing less than I expected. Laura and Mark shared wedding photos with us over Thai food shortly after leaving your appointment this past Saturday. Needless to say they were very good, or I would say exceptional. Both Laura and Mark were very pleased. You and your assistant were right on the ball. A photographer is always big part of any wedding. This was made extra special maybe because we were work partners and better yet still considered friends. I do not think they could have asked for anything more. Thanks for sharing your expertise and making ourdaughters dreams come true.

Derek and I really enjoyed working with Marvin. A few months before our wedding we did our engagement pictures with Marvin. That served as a great way to get to know him-and we were so pleased with the pictures that it only made us more excited for our wedding. Marvin and his assistant were excellent at our wedding. I got lots of compliments from friends and family about how they were in not your face and intrusive like many wedding photographers can be.Yet they still got amazing pictures! My favorite part about our wedding pictures are the candids shots. Marvin did an EXCELLENT job of capturing those once in a lifetime moments and expressions. When I look at the pictures I am able to remember what I was feeling and you can see the happiness and joy on our faces and in our body language. The pictures truly captured the essence of our personalities and relationship. Everyone says that your wedding day will go by so fast and that you don’t really get to experience everything-and that’s true. Thankfully, we have amazing wedding day pictures that allow us the opportunity to really relive and experience our special day again and again!!
