Illegible signatures and generic “All the best” messages crammed into a book. Let’s not forget to mention the smudge marks, worn out pen indents, and the people who didn’t even see it. Sound familiar? And quite possibly what all your friends had at their wedding? Very likely.
We know that the sole purpose of those signatures is to document who was present in helping you to celebrate your special day, and we think that’s wonderful. But Hilmer & Himson is for those people who want something a little more unique. Something classy, quirky, and downright honest. As we like to say, “Leave them something more than just your signature”.
Created in 2013 by photographer, Jay Perry, Hilmer and Himson was brought to life to act as a classy alternative in capturing the fun and authentic personality of the guests on your wedding day. And in doing so, keeping it lighthearted and natural – the way a wedding should be.
It is a romantic set up meant to blend in with your beautiful wedding and not take away from it. We want you and your guests to have a great time while we take care of capturing the memories for you. Let your guests relax and enjoy their night. No need to rely on them and the disposable cameras you thought about leaving on all the tables hoping they would magically turn into gorgeous professional looking shots to remember the night by. Leave that to us.
Have a photographer? No worries. Just think of Hilmer & Himson as an extension of your wedding day photography. With lots of experience in the field of journalistic wedding photography ourselves, we know how hard it is to get every portrait you want with all your family and friends due to the obvious time constraints of the day. Here is the perfect opportunity to have us professionally capture those memories with your grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends and entire family. To top it off? All your images will be bound into a custom hard cover Visual Guestbook meant to act as an heirloom to look back on for many years to come.
We only have one rule……… no boas or oversized sunglasses allowed. You’re welcome.
A romantic set up meant to capture your guests authentically, candidly, and in a classy way.
