Learn more about our ads. Philly photographer Justin Heyes is one of our favorite wedding photographers with a seriously interesting background. Not only does he capture all kinds of amazing offbeat weddings, write as an industry expert for photography magazines, and generally own the space in creative photography, but he used to work with photography and lighting at QVC — yep, the home shopping channel. It gave him a really diverse array of skills when it comes to making stage lighting more exciting and capturing details. But will it translate to capturing your wedding? Just wait until you see the proof. Oh, and stay tuned for a killer promotion that will knock an additional vendor off of your to-hire list! Justin Heyes Photography is also featured in our Offbeat Vendors guide! Justin doesn't conform to typical wedding photography trends that come and go quickly. He's all about color, authenticity, and connecting to what makes you and your wedding unique from everyone else's. This translates into meaningful candids, gorgeously shot portraits, and a journalistic style that will take you on a visual journey through the whole experience. Let's hear from Justin about what excites him about capturing offbeat weddings… Capturing people’s stories in an authentic and creative way is what drives me to be a people photographer. I genuinely enjoy learning about their lives and listening to their shared stories in the process. Creatively documenting your wedding day, I capture the unguarded emotions, the precious moments, the happy tears, and the loudest laughter of your special day. It is a pleasure to use my passion and skill to put you at ease, enabling the true essence of your wedding day to be beautifully captured. I strive to create photographs that capture a vivid account of your meaningful memories, of a time in your life that you hold priceless. Le sigh. I love a photographer who totally gets what we all want from our wedding photos. Here's what one client said about her experience with Justin… "I would yell it from the rooftops if I could: HIRE JUSTIN HEYES! Justin and Susan were a complete pleasure throughout our entire experience. They drove over an hour to meet us at our ceremony site weeks before our wedding and didn't mind at all when we walked around in the pouring rain only to learn we were locked out of the chapel we came to see! My husband tends to get a little awkward in front of a camera, but after each shot Justin took, he made us feel like we were doing everything right. He knew it was important to us to get to our cocktail hour so he was mindful of time after every shot. All of our newlywed friends were so impressed with how quickly we received all of our beautiful photos back as well. These perks are on top of our pictures looking stunning! After deciding to get married, hiring Justin as our photographer was the best decision we made." – Ashley Storey Praise hands emojis all around. But wait, I mentioned a little promotion, didn't I?
