My name is Hannah, which means “grace” and I can attest that life, although messy, is remarkably full of it. With care in my heart and kindness as my approach, I believe that above all, loving others well and extending grace in the same way it has been to me is my calling. I am honored that I get to do that through photographing life’s most important moments.
Growing up, I knew that I wanted to use my hands and do work that held meaning. For years, I was not sure how that would come to fruition; all I knew was that I needed to be in a place that allowed for me to be wildly creative and be a part of something that placed a high importance on serving others.
Having studied storytelling and becoming a published writer, I took a leap of faith and quit my management job to begin documenting others’ lives using my camera. I now find myself couples throughout the Southeast with grace, precision, and forethought as my driving factors. Providing my couples with a luxurious, service every step of the way, from the initial inquiry to the moment my clients step in front of my lens, is my goal.
On days where couples stand together and promise their lives to one another surrounded by their loved ones, I operate with a calming demeanor whilst seamlessly maintaining an engaging environment.
My photographic style is driven with the focus on capturing the tenderness two individuals have for another, whilst preserving the care they have for those nearest to their hearts. With a fixation on creating thoughtful imagery through preserving beautiful light, and motion, I strive to marry romantic, yet documentary direction using my medium format film and digital cameras.
Based in Atlanta with a camera in hand, I count it a joy and am humbled to be given the privilege of entering the lives of many, creating imagery of my subjects that compels the heart and capturing moments that are worth remembering. I would be honored for you to trust me to do the same.
"TO ME, PHOTOGRAPHY IS AN ART OF OBSERVATION. IT'S ABOUT FINDING SOMETHING INTERESTING IN AN ORDINARY PLACE... I'VE FOUND IT HAS LITTLE TO DO WITH THE THINGS YOU SEE AND EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE WAY YOU SEE THEM." - ELLIOTT ERWITT
Testimonies & Kind Words
Hannah Forsberg was such a joy to work with! I am so happy I chose her to photograph my wedding in June 2018, and felt that way from start to finish. She is such a thoughtful, warm, detail-oriented person and gave me such helpful and personal attention all throughout. Leading up to the wedding, her communication was perfect, checking in on things and working with me to gather all the necessary details for a smooth wedding day. On the day of the wedding, she was such a sweet presence and blended in so well while she worked hard to get the best shots of everything. She was able to kindly handle all of the family pictures and quickly manage the large groups of family members. She also has such a talent for helping you relax in front of the camera to capture beautiful, natural moments. We are so happy with our pictures! If you want a detailed communicator who works with you to strategize the best plan for your wedding day, takes time to understand your picture priorities and overall aesthetic, gives you personal attention and help, professionally works with your family and friends, takes such beautiful and creative shots, and has the sweetest spirit, you need to use Hannah Forsberg!
- Hannah O’Neal, Past Bride
Hannah photographed our wedding on 9/21/2018 and was absolutely wonderful to work with! Her sweet and cheerful personality along with her breathtaking work sealed the deal for us to choose her as our photographer. Hannah really was conscious of all of our requests and appreciate her getting to know us beyond the client aspect. We truly enjoyed her Skyping with us to meet properly before the wedding as we weren't local. She asked questions that helped her get to know us but also aided in knowing what we wanted out of our wedding photography. Overall we would definitely recommend Hannah and hope to use her services again next time we're in GA!
- Lura Herriman, Past Bride
Hannah was an absolute pleasure to work with. Leading up to the wedding she communicated with us frequently to ensure that everything was prepared to go smoothly. She also took the time to get to know us and learn our story. Her photographs are creative, while also maintaining that timeless look that couples want for their wedding day. Not only did she have plenty of ideas, but she was also sure to capture photos that were important to us. Her prints are high quality and there are endless options. Our family and guests have loved looking through them over and over. I highly recommend Hannah for any special moments you need photographed!
-Allison Staggs, Past Bride
I cannot say enough good things about Hannah. Her personality makes her so easy to work with. Hannah really pays attention to her couples and understands what is important to them. She has a natural talent for capturing pictures that truly show your personality and feelings. On your wedding day, expect someone who is sweet, calm, and genuine - someone who will automatically put everyone at ease. She sent me teasers a day after our wedding, and then delivered a beautifully edited gallery of our entire wedding on our one month wedding anniversary. Each of our wedding pictures was beautiful and unique, and when I look at each picture, I feel like I am reliving my wedding day. I cannot thank her enough for that feeling or how wonderfully beautiful her pictures are.
-Chanel Lopez, Past Bride
Hannah is one of the sweetest people you'll meet and I am so lucky our paths crossed! As a wedding planner, I can't tell you how wonderful it is to work with a photographer who has both artistic talent and organization skills. It is such a breath of fresh air to work with a photographer that you can completely trust. Hannah always creates thoughtful, joy-filled, artistic photos while forging a connection with those around her. Her couples feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera when she's around, and it comes through in the images. Her work is worth every penny! She's truly talented!
- Rachel Slauer, Wedding Planner and Owner of Slauer Events
I have never felt as beautiful as I do in the pictures she did for our wedding and engagement. Hannah is amazing! She is wonderful at directing everyone so photographs look natural. Her use of lighting is wonderful and her photography is truly art. She is also such pleasure to work with! I have been in several weddings and none of the photographers were half as professional or talented as Hannah is. Hire her for your wedding!
- Baily Staebler, previous bride
My husband and I truly loved having Hannah as our wedding photographer. She was so sweet and her photos are absolutely A M A Z I N G!!!! She truly has such a great attitude and it is very clear she genuinely loves what she does. We are so very thankful for her and our beautiful photos that we will get to have forever.
- Erin Altman, past Bride and wedding planner at Ooh! Events
Hannah, I just wanted to write you to thank you for everything— going on this journey with us, taking pictures of the most precious moments in our lives and being so professional along the way. I can’t express to you how much I love these photos. It’s hard to put into words. I could not be more happy with my choice to change photographers along the way. These photos really captured our special day in a way that I can share with everyone who was present, wasn’t able to be there and the generations to come. We are overjoyed. Thank you for being a part of our lives. I know this will not be the last time we work together. Much love and gratitude!
- Kelly Lanier, Previous Bride
We found Hannah Forsberg through another photographer that referred us to her. She shot our wedding and it was the best experience from start to finish. She was so incredibly sweet and accommodating. We had many conversations leading up to the big day. She is very organized in her process. We had everything planned out. My husband and I felt very confident that our big day would turn out wonderful. She kept us at ease and was very calm the day of. She’s so creative and took the most beautiful pictures. Our family is big and a lot was going on that day but she had everything under control. We went on our honeymoon and she sent us a couple pictures. We were so impressed!! My mom got married this past year and she also shot her wedding. Our family loves her and we will continue to spread the word to everyone we know that may be needing a wonderful photographer! Hannah is truly talented and we can’t wait to have her shoot more precious moments to come!
- Alyssa Onay, Past Bride
Hannah photographed my boyfriend and me recently and I seriously couldn’t be happier with the photos I received and with her quality of service as a photographer. She was patient with us, as that was our first time being professionally photographed together. She guided us into comfortable and natural poses, and captured genuine emotion between us so beautifully! Thank you so much for our lovely photos, Hannah!
- Eve Yarbrough, Client
I am in the middle of my engagement and working with Hannah as our photographer has already been such a fabulous experience! Her photography style is so authentic and natural, I really felt like our engagement photos captured who we are as a couple and I can't wait for her to shoot our wedding!
- Shelby McDonough, Bride
Hannah was absolute gem on our wedding day, and we wouldn't have gotten through it with anyone else. Not only did she make everyone feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera, she communicated with me clearly before and after the wedding so I knew what to expect. Her planning and execution made everything fly by, so I didn't feel like my whole wedding day was taken up with pictures- and yet we have hundreds of gorgeous shots that I'll treasure forever. If you are looking for a great experience and great results, book her! You won't regret it.
- Jessica Wilson, Past Bride
I don't think there are enough ways for me to sing Hannah's praises! When it comes to being diligent & focused, while also being completely pleasant & lovely to work with, Hannah has it all. I've worked with Hannah multiple times now and her gentle spirit & determination never cease to amaze me as she pursues the beautiful art of film photography! Choosing Hannah as your photographer is something you will never regret. She will take your most special & sacred moments and capture them in a way that will last a lifetime.
- Elisabeth Young, Client
I knew Hannah was the photographer that I wanted to shoot our wedding. Throughout my engagement, Hannah was sweet, sincere, and honest. She is easy to work with and really puts a lot of effort and love into what she does. Our wedding day was perfectly captured by Hannah! She captured the sweet moments and the little details of the day. Hannah was also fast to get back the photos, but still put so much effort into each hand-edited photo. I will hold those images dear to my heart forever! We recommend Hannah Forsberg with complete confidence that she will do amazing things for you.
- Kati Chacon, Past Bride
Hannah has an incredible natural, light and airy style that reflects so romantically in her images. Hannah is full of such life and grace - she is an absolute pleasure to work with. Her posing technique is very organic and makes you feel confident and comfortable - especially made my husband, who hates taking pictures, feel relaxed and not "posed" the entire time. My husband and I used her for our 1 year anniversary shoot to try to take place of wedding photos we had done by another photographer that we weren't happy with. She blew all of my expectations away. My only regret is that I didn't find Hannah until after our wedding - I would have killed for her to capture our day! Hannah will be our go-to photographer from now on!
- Eryn Carroll, Client
Hannah is one of the most talented photographers I have met. She has such a light, beautiful style. Every professional shoot I've done before has felt stiff and unnatural, but with her, it was all very relaxed and natural and the photos show that. She has such a great eye for capturing little moments that you can treasure. She took pictures of my boyfriend and I, and they're by far my favorite pictures of us. It's such a gift to have pictures that really capture the essence of us and our relationship. I would recommend her to anyone!
