For a completely cohesive way of telling the story of your wedding day, head to All Heart Photo & Video. Whether using still images or moving film, Dana and Keren excel at capturing your love from all angles. Big moments, small moments, joy, laughter, tearful vows, and sweet, quiet kisses on the forehead, they're all documented in an authentic way. The fact that these two have known each other for decades allows them to work together in a rhythmic fashion, dancing around each other to remain totally unobtrusive. This mean you're free to be you, the day is free to unfold organically, and real emotions and moments are free to happen. An attraction to shadows, angles, and unique composition keeps All Heart's work artistic, yet an honest approach to editing keeps them classic. For wedding day images where you, your emotion, and that special moment are what stands out the most, be sure to pay them a visit!
Tell me a little bit about your company!
The idea of offering both photography and videography to wedding couples was on our hearts for quite awhile (we're talking high school days), and besides a few changes to our branding here and there, we've been in business since 2011.
I, Dana, handle the photo, and Keren does video. When we work together, we understand each other's visions and we find ourselves in a rhythmic sync as the wedding day unfolds.
What makes your work unique? Why should brides and grooms hire you?
We're unique in that we offer both photo and video as a cohesive project. Beyond that, we shoot in a photojournalistic and documentary style, meaning that we are telling a real and authentic story of your big day and, more importantly, your special love.
What is your ideal client like?
Simply put, our ideal client chooses to go against the traditional grain of weddings and have some fun with the details they choose. We love clients that use their wedding as a means to support local small businesses, trusting the vision of the many great wedding vendors here in Pittsburgh. We love couples that choose unique venues off the beaten path. And we ESPECIALLY love clients that put great value into their photography and videography, knowing it will tell the story of their love for generations to come.
Would you travel outside of the country for a wedding?
How would you describe your photography style?
I'm a documentary style photographer, meaning I shoot the day in a very uninterrupted way which allows for real emotions to take place. I love to play around with shadows, angles, and lines which keeps my work fresh and artistic, while still ensuring we are capturing some timeless images.
What emotions do you think your images evoke?
Hopefully lots of love, tenderness, and playfulness. I'm after those sweet side glances and kisses on the forehead, just as much as I want the total joy and big belly laughs.
What is your approach to editing? What is the typical turn-around time for images?
My approach and attitude towards editing is this – I want to look at one of my images and see the IMAGE. The people in it, the mood, the emotions. I don't want to see my editing. I want the images to be honest not over-edited, which I believe keeps them timeless and never dated.
Turn-around is dependent on the time of year, but usually I have the images back to clients within 4 – 6 weeks of their wedding.
What other items do you offer?
Engagement sessions, boudoir sessions, and professionally bound albums and prints.
