Tell me a little bit about your business!
The idea of offering photography to wedding couples was on my heart for quite a while (we’re talking high school days), and besides a few changes to my branding here and there, All Heart Photo been in business since 2011.
What makes your work unique?
I shoot in a photojournalistic and documentary style, meaning that I am telling a real and authentic story of your big day and, more importantly, your special love.
What is your ideal client like?
Simply put, my ideal client chooses to go against the traditional grain of weddings and have some fun with the details they choose. I 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. I love couples that choose unique venues off the beaten path. And I ESPECIALLY love clients that put great value into their photography, knowing it will tell the story of their love for generations to come.
What is your approach to photography?
I take a documentary approach to photography, 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 the work fresh and artistic, while still ensuring I am capturing some timeless footage.
My attitude towards editing is this – I want to look at one of images and see the people in them – the mood, the emotions. I want the photos to be honest, which I believe keeps them timeless and never dated.
