Some things to think about...
What all goes into your session with a Professional Photographer? Think about it. We plan & coordinate, we challenge the elements, & we play with your kiddos. We lay belly down in the mud, schedule for the perfect lighting, & we sometimes even skip meals and rush to get more gas. We climb and crawl, fight the wind, and run around endlessly. We get to know your families and stories as we work together to get that perfect look. Then we edit. And edit. And edit. We spend forever on one photo just to restart and try again. And then finally, we export. As we export your session we are endlessly pondering your reaction. What if they hate it? What if it is the greatest thing they have ever seen!?! All of this fills us with anxiety until we finally send that downloadable link over. We sit & wait in agony for a response, sometimes there isn’t one. But sometimes. OH SOMETIMES. There is...
THE BIG REACTION. And that is why we do this. The tears the smiles the “oh my god I am in love”. It reminds us exactly why we do all of this. Because your reaction is everything. Your stories are our masterpieces. So think about this when you are on the search for your next photographer. We don’t just point and shoot, we tell your stories.

"There’s not enough ways to say how amazing Hannah is.. Being photographed can be awkward for some due to having to pose but with her that doesn’t exist. She made everything so much fun and every moment she captured was so natural. I couldn’t ask for anything better. Thank you for being amazing and capturing moments I’ll never forget." - Ashley D
Memories to last a Lifetime
Moments to Last Forever
"I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND using Hannah as your photographer!! As the mother of the bride, I can attest that we were very impressed with Hannah Orcutt / Illuminated Palette Photography! Hannah was very professional! Her pictures are gorgeous! My husband said Hannah is either part ninja or has a Harry Potter invisible cloak. She seemed to be everywhere taking pictures of everyone! Thank you so much Hannah for recording gorgeous pictures of this wonderful day!" - Leslie B
Making the Ordinary...
"I CAN NOT express how fun, laid back, sweet, edgy, & patient, Hannah with Illuminated Palette was with us and our, full of life family, on our wedding day!!! She captured moments that made me cry, again while looking at the photos. We went over what I wanted and what shots were important to me and she delivered ALL of them!! She ran her booty off and delivered amazing photos! I couldn't be more thrilled! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!" - Andrea B
Never Wanting the Session to End
Can we just shoot forever?
"HANNAH IS AMAZING. My boyfriend and I did a couples shoot the other day and I am so beyond happy we did! Hannah made us feel so comfortable. The best part about it: she gets SO excited about the pictures when she’s taking them, especially when she gets the perfect shot! She is so good at what she does!!!!" - Haley A
Boudoir & Milk Bath
"We had this photographer at our event this past month and the pictures were unbelievable. Talk about a great photographer!!! She not only helped capture the event, she also made sure to capture both candid and staged photos. I look forward to sharing these pictures for years to come! She out performed all of our expectations, and managed to corral a large group into a meaningful memories of our event. Absolutely amazing and will hire for everything from here on out." - Patrick C
Making Every Moment Count
No matter how Big or Small
"AMAZING. TALENTED. WONDERFUL. PERFECT. This was my first time having my photos taken professionally, and Hannah made me feel so confident, beautiful, and comfortable. She has a laid-back, fun personality but still keeps it professional and does not mind hearing your ideas on what you want. My experience was great and I recommend her to everyone!" - Loan T
Never a Dull Moment
Even if you Try
"Hannah is the best! She has done family photos (which turned into a surprise engagement that her and my now fiancé planned) and my engagement photos and will be doing my wedding. She’s truly the best! Her photos never leave me disappointed. She’s so sweet and she works with you on where you want to go and the time of day. She gets the photos back to you so quickly as well! I have nothing bad to say about Hannah, she’s such a doll and I can’t wait to see the amazing photos she takes at my wedding!" - Delaney C
