DSC_2448“My husband and I used Lee not only for our wedding, but also our engagement photos and I am SO happy we found him! You hear a lot of scary things about wedding photographers – that they can be strict, mean or even scary, that they will bark orders and are not willing to be even the tiniest bit lenient. So, when I met Lee at our engagement shoot down in DC, in 98 degree weather, and he was happy, excited, energetic and had a “go with the flow” vibe, I could not have been more relieved! And that wonderful, relaxed, enthusiastic vibe stayed with Lee for the entire photo shoot and carried through all the way through the final moments of our wedding.
Lee was so much more than our wedding photographer. He provided me with a sense of calm and direction throughout the entire process – anytime I had a question, Lee answered it. Anytime I started to freak out, Lee found a subtle way to calm me down.
The pictures speak for the talent and vision of Lee as a photographer, but you really have to meet him to see that he is so much more than an artful eye with experience and a fancy camera. He is patient, professional and endlessly kind. We will treasure the experience and the photographs for the rest of our lives.
Thank you, Lee!”

DSC_0924As a recent client, it is with great pleasure that I write to you in recommendation of Mr. Lee Hickman. 

Mr. Hickman was our photographer for two events: our rehearsal dinner and our wedding.  Both events were held in Charleston, South Carolina.  Mr. Hickman was extremely dedicated to this project, traveling from Chicago to Charleston, taking time to learn the location and venues to ensure we took advantage of all the best opportunities to shoot.

Because of Mr. Hickman’s reputation, portfolio and professionalism, we knew he was the only photographer who could capture such an important occasion.  He truly listened and understood our vision.  We didn’t want a “wedding photographer.”  We wanted an artist.  Mr. Hickman delivered on our expectations.  Our photos are flawless, beautiful, timeless and uniquely ours.

Also, I cannot say enough about Mr. Hickman’s professionalism and how comfortable he made me feel on the day of my wedding.  He was a calming presence for me especially, and for my mother and bridesmaids in those critical moments before the ceremony.  You can’t put a price on something like that.

It is a privilege to have worked with Mr. Hickman.  I recommend him without reservation for any occasion worthy of his talents.  You won’t be disappointed.




DSC_2661Lee was such a great addition to our wedding day! He made taking pictures all day a fun and memorable time. He worked with us by making sure we got the pictures we absolutely wanted and also came up with some great ideas for individual, couple, and group shots. Lee is an easy-going guy who is organized and experienced, which made our wedding day go so smoothly.My guests and bridal party are still talking about how amazing the pictures turned out! My husband and I were so happy with our pictures. I looked at them for hours when I got them 🙂 We would recommend Lee to anyone!

I hope this is ok? Let me know if you need anything else!


20150718-DSC_5765We recently worked with Lee for our wedding photos. After meeting him several months ago for the engagement photo shoot, we immediately knew he was a cool guy to work with that would produce amazing pictures. His knowledge of where to shoot around Chicago was on point, and we ended up with beautiful pictures in three iconic locations, which was exactly what we wanted for the engagement session. On the wedding day, Lee was prompt, professional, and a blast to work with. He truly knows how to take the perfect picture! We can speak from experience that Lee is not afraid of a rainstorm and is willing to get soaked to get a good shot! Lee also did a great job the days leading up to the wedding to prepare us for what we needed to know/have done to make the day go as smoothly as possible. We couldn’t be happier to work with him and can’t wait to see the rest of the photos!

At the end of the day you have your memories and photos. It poured rain on our big day. But it was made to look romantic and sexy. Many shots even looked sunny! Every guest was photographed. I am the mother of the bride and I was a wreck! Calm was the order of the day and I really appreciated that! The photos are are wonderful and we will cherish them forever.

Thank you. Cheryl holt
