Who is Heidi, the artist behind the camera?
I am a Philadelphia based Photographer specializing in weddings and engagements. When I am not behind the camera, you might find me practicing yoga or meditation or perhaps soaking up the buzz of the city and dreaming up my next adventure!
When did you first realize your passion for photography, and how has this journey cultivated you into the photographer you are now?
My journey in Photography first began in high-school. I distinctly remember going into the darkroom for the first time feeling like it was magic! How amazing that with the click of a button an image is held in suspension and then watching it appear before your very eyes was just amazing. I was pretty much hooked from there.
How would you describe your photography style?
I would describe my photography style as true-to life. My images are clean and classic and share the essence of the moment.
What is the process like for couples who want to book you for their wedding?
I understand each couple and each wedding is unique. I offer a range of packages that can be customized to meet individual needs. I love getting to know each couple and being with them through this amazing journey. Weddings are a very exciting time and can also become a whirlwind. I bring expertise, experience and a sense of calm throughout the process. It is my privilege to be a part this special day!
What do you love most about photographing weddings/couples?
My favorite part of photographing weddings is all the love! It is truly a beautiful occasion when family and friends come from near and far to gather, to celebrate and be present for the union of two people. It is an honor for me to capture images that will forever bring couples back to this magic moment.
Besides weddings, what other moments do you like to capture?
I am primarily a wedding photographer, but I also photograph families, maternity and work with other creative entrepreneurs. I love combining travel and photography as they both fill me up! In the last few year, I have had the opportunity to photograph both weddings and adventure abroad.
What other locations do you cover in addition to Philadelphia?
Philadelphia is my home base and many of my weddings are right here in the city and the surrounding areas. I also often work in New Jersey and Delaware. I love to travel so feel free to reach out from far and wide!
What has been your most memorable encounter with a client? Were they highly satisfied?
Some of my favorite experience with clients have been being able to share in the journey together. To photograph their engagements, and then their wedding and then their children. There is nothing better than witnessing the unfolding of these joyful moments in life.
Is there anything you really hope to do in the future such as an event or project relative to your business that you haven’t gotten the chance to do yet?
I am truly so grateful that I am able to do what I love. I appreciate that my path has lead me here to use my creativity and connection.
As a photographer, I am trained to see the light, to watch for it, follow it, and work with it to create beautiful images. Not only do I work with the outer light, but I also work with the inner light, the relationship, the emotion, the subtle shifts that hold the spirit of the moment.
