Gary Huynh Photography


Wow. Just wow. Our wedding wouldn’t have been as fantastic as it was if it weren’t for Gary’s fun, creative, and professional presence there with us throughout the day and evening. He knows exactly how to make you and your future spouse feel like the most important people in the world on the most important day of your lives. Between the two of us, we must have received at least two dozen comments from our guests about how great Gary was, and we couldn’t agree with them more! It’s not even a question: you NEED to hire Gary.

Having Gary as a part of our wedding day was one of the best decisions I ever made. Not only did I feel like he truly captured our genuine personalities through the photos, but his attention to detail is unmatched. We’ve only gotten a sneak peek at our pictures so far and we are blown away. He was so much fun to work with, and truly made us all feel so comfortable and happy. Having someone who not only takes gorgeous photos but is also wonderful to work with makes me feel so lucky. If you’re looking for that person, Gary is definitely the one.

We used Gary for our wedding in November 2022 & he was AMAZING. He did everything possible to learn about us as a couple. He was always checking in with us & was so friendly. He came early & was so attentive to us on our wedding day. He helped me get ready & basically was like “where do you need me, i’ll help wherever” and that is so much more than what’s expected of a photographer. We had POURING rain all day but Gary did everything possible to make the indoor of the venue have different angles & feel like we were getting creative where we could. My guests loved him! Anytime something fun or sweet was happening, he was THERE & ready! He got on the dance floor with us & had a good time! Gary also gave us a box of polaroid pictures to have on the wedding day, which were so cute! We had so much fun with him & he made us feel like we had known him forever!

Where to even begin. Gary had a huge part in almost every aspect of our wedding, from where to have the ceremony at the venue to what I should do for my nails. He was super easy to communicate with and always responded in a timely manner. Every guest absolutely loved him and raved about him, about how nice he was, how funny and how he got everyone comfortable in front of the camera. All around our wedding would not have been as amazing as it was without him there. And then there are the pictures. Absolutely stunning. Made me cry looking at them at how perfectly he captured the day and my husband and I. Highly recommend for any and all events you need a photographer for.

I just want to say how amazing Gary was. Our wedding went so smooth with Gary’s guidance. From the photos with my bridesmaids, to the ceremony, to the reception we felt extremely comfortable and that we could be ourselves. On top of that Gary was a blast during the party. All of my family raved about how awesome Gary was and how they loved his energy. Gary also gifted my husband and me one of the most thoughtful gifts we had received. During the dinner Gary printed unedited photos of the earlier events in the day and gifted it to us later in the reception. It’s a gift we will cherish forever. It truly made the day even more special. We are so happy we chose Gary through this entire process. From our engagement photoshoot to the wedding he was not only our photographer but he became a friend. We are beyond grateful for him and his amazing work. He is passionate about what he does and goes out of his way to make sure your day is fun and that the photos turn out amazing. Recommend him 100%.

From meeting Gary early on and seeing his work, it was evident that he was passionate about his craft. Though he is multi-talented, photography is where is artistry truly shines! After booking our wedding with Gary, he offered us a short holiday shoot so that he could get to know us a bit and develop rapport for shooting our wedding. Since we had already been gifted engagement photos by a friend. And he even wore a suit, even in extreme heat and humidity, to match our wedding colors because I had seen how nice it looked on him and thought it would coordinate well for our day. He came prepared with a sort of essentials emergency kit for the event and surprised us bringing champagne for a fun wedding party photo shoot element. Gary kept his calm when we were running behind on our timeline in the hotel and still managed to nail some shots where nobody would know we were scrambling. His ability to capture and portray the honest moments of the day so beautifully is a real triumph to is craft. He always has taken our desires and feelings into consideration and checked in multiple times with us throughout the planning process to see if there was anything we needed help with. Gary even brought tables for us to borrow for our bar set up the day before since we seemed to have a shortage of tables for the event. He also surprised us with a sneak peek at the wedding with the most precious box of polaroid’s! Overall, Gary’s work highlights his passion for capturing people in their true essence. We feel so fortunate that we were able to have him capture our special day! You won't be disappointed in choosing to hire Gary.

I cannot express how AMAZING Gary is! Not only did he take incredible photos at our wedding but he was also incredibly helpful with everything leading up to the big day! He even brought coolers for us when we need extras!! He went above and beyond for us and we’ll never be able to thank him enough!! He is a gifted and amazing photographer and a phenomenal person! 10/10 would recommend!!

Austin + Sarah

We are so lucky we found Gary. He is the whole package! His client relations and photography skills are unparalleled. I can say with full confidence that if you hire Gary, you will come away with beautiful footage of your special day as well as a new friend! My husband and I currently live in Utah and were planning our rural New York wedding from afar. I researched and interviewed many photographers before we found Gary. We were nervous about hiring vendors and planning a wedding from across the country, but we nailed it! From the beginning Gary was completely invested in helping us create the wedding of our dreams. He reached out regularly to ask how he could help, to chat, and provide recommendations on vendors we hadn’t hired for yet. By the time the wedding came around we were friends and I could tell he genuinely cared about us and wanted to get to know us so he could capture who we were. He helped us create our wedding day timeline, gave so much advice on wedding logistics, helped us work out problems, helped us with our rehearsal, and went above and beyond in so many other ways. He invested in our wedding more than I could have ever expected or asked of a wedding photographer. He was our coach from day one, and I cannot express my gratitude enough for all the help he provided. The day of the wedding we had some unexpected timing problems, and Gary worked with the time limitations and worked behind the scenes to get us back on track. He orchestrated the last-minute preparations and we walked down the aisle on time in the end. We were unable to hire a wedding coordinator, and Gary really came through and helped us keep everything together. When we arrived in town and did our engagement shoot, we felt so comfortable and were so excited to finally meet him in person. The shoot was so much fun and the pictures turned out stunning. His skill is incredible. There wasn’t a single photo we didn’t like. Instead of just posing us for photos, he brought us to locations where we had an environment to be ourselves, and he captured our love for each other beautifully. When the wedding photos arrived, I was shocked at how much he captured. He caught the emotional moments, romantic moments, silly moments, and everything in between. The day of the wedding he also provided a surprise gift, which was so touching! When I look at his photos and videos, I feel like I am truly reliving my wedding. The creativity of his shots and their perfect execution provided images we could only dream of. If you hire Gary, rest assured that you are in good hands.

"Working with Gary was nothing short of perfect. It was the most seamless photo session we ever had; with two young children I typically dread family pictures but this was genuinely fun, organic, and exactly what I could have hoped for. He captured us in our natural element, didn’t pose us or make anything feel fake & had the utmost patience with my 1 year old and 3 year old. We’ve had many professional photos taken throughout the years but, these photos were absolutely top notch. I would recommend Gary to anyone. We have already started to look at dates for our next session. I will probably start to get photos every six months now that we have found someone so personable and easy to work with. Not to mention, the cherry on top, he had my photos back to me same day and they were stunning. Thank you SO much Gary, for making us feel so comfortable and making our session stress free."

Danielle Cardella

"Gary is one of a kind. He is funny, sweet and welcoming. But the best part…his skill is unreal. Want to feel like a million bucks? Hit him up. His edits and style are timeless and beautiful."

Zoe Seznec Sweetland

"From my husband: Gary told us during our initial interview that all he cares about is making sure we have the best wedding day experience possible. He meant it. Little did I know that that also meant having a great engagement shoot--it was one of the funnest weekends I’ve had in a while--and the weeks/days leading up to the wedding were less stressful with him highlighting the wedding team. He was more than one of the best photographers we’ve ever seen. He gave us guidance, very insightful advice, and was just a great all-around sounding board whenever we needed one. He also had a knack in providing anti-anxiety advice to my soon-to-be-wife (guys, this is key). He was thoughtful just like a close friend but had the precision and surety of a surgeon when called for. And the pictures! When you have picture after picture qualify as your “favorites,” you know you lucked out big time in finding the right person for your wedding. Then came a pleasant surprise during our wedding day (a gift, but I’ll keep it vague to not ruin any surprise; it was such a wonderful gift--thanks again Gary!). And best of it all? We naturally had a lot of fun, during our engagement shoot and on our wedding day. A large part of that is also due to Gary. He can set the tone. He can boogey. He can also strike a pose. If you have the chance to book him, do it. I would not be surprised if he will also be the key to making your wedding a success."

Lena + Richard

"Gary has been the most accommodating and helpful photographer! I have worked with him on numerous occasions over the past few years. He has photographed myself, friends, and family in varying locations and weather conditions. From Bridal showers, parties, family pictures, portraits Gary does not disappoint. Gary always makes it work! High winds? Poor natural lighting? Random location I wanted pictures taken at? No problem- Gary can make the shoot work in any condition. As an uncomfortable/awkward picture taker, Gary does a great job making me feel confident and comfortable. I will continue to recommend Gary for all occasions! Not only are his pictures amazing and high quality, he returns them in a timely manor. He also provides “sneak peaks” to his clients. Overall, Gary takes high priority in making his clients happy which is a necessary when you are capturing special moments. Other photographers have made me feel like just another person, whereas Gary takes the time to leave his clients feeling satisfied, prioritized, and special. Highly recommend!"

Miranda Merton

"Gary wasn’t just a phenomenal photographer, he was also a key reason that our surprise engagement photo shoot went so amazingly well. He helped coordinate the surprise with my now fiancé, down to holding the ring for him until it was time. Before I knew what was even going on, he guided us through our first professional photo shoot with ease and told us to be or normal selves. He had great ideas and such a creative mind through out the two days we were with him. He really captured the love we have for each other in each and every photo. We are so happy Gary could be apart of our special day and provide us photos to share with our family."

Maggie Heinen

"Gary went well out of his way to make my surprise proposal work! He helped me go pick out the ring, helped walk me through the entire set up and held the ring until the moment for me. He made us feel so comfortable and let us be us. He truly cares about each person he works for. As a bonus, he’s very funny which allows for genuine smiles! I highly recommend Gary because he goes out of his way to make your special moment about you and helps in anyway possible. He’s a truly amazing person and photographer."

John Petro

"Gary did an amazing job of making my fiancé and I feel comfortable during our engagement shoot. He's professional, kind, and genuinely wonderful to be around. We absolutely love the photos from the shoot (which he edited and sent to us in an incredibly timely manner) and we cannot wait to see what he captures during our wedding in October! We love Gary!"

Samuel Zimmerman

"One of the best photographers I've worked with! Made me and my shy boyfriend comfortable and able to laugh."

Jeb and Bre // Rochester, NY

"Gary was absolutely INCREDIBLE to work with! He definitely made our shoot as comfortable as possible, and went above and beyond getting down and dirty (and wet!) to capture our special moments while we were living in the moment. If you are looking for a photographer for any reason at all, Gary is your guy!!!!!! You won't be disappointed!"

Ian and Lauren // Rochester, NY

"Gary went above and beyond for my husband and I. He came ALL the way out to NYC for engagement photos and spent quality time with the two of us and our families for our micro/zoom wedding. After having such a whirlwind time replanning our wedding during COVID-19, Gary was such a dependable, kind presence who also happens to take beautiful, meaningful photo's!! Can't say enough and you should definitely book him for your next occasion."

Hei Ton and Kimi // New York, NY

"Gary was phenomenal! He was so fun to work with. We were nervous about looking awkward in our couple photoshoot, but he really set us up nicely, and made sure all the shots of us looked incredible. If you are looking for anyone to take couples, engagement, wedding etc. photos, Gary is your guy!!!"

Ben and Hannah // Buffalo, NY

"Gary was the most fun to work with! He made the experience so fun and laid back There was no pressure at all, and he was willing to work with us to make sure we got the shots we wanted and all the shots we didn't know we wanted until we saw the final product."

Alex and Felicia // Fall River, MA

"Gary was stellar! He kept the flow going naturally, was professional, recommended good shots and angles while still letting us pick some of the ones he wanted. Hire this man!"

Jon + Jenna // Rochester, NY

"Gary has an amazing eye and he is a lot of fun to work with. He is very good at taking what feels like just an hour of hanging out - and walking away with awesome photos that really capture the inner beauty and joy."
