The trick to colorful, authentic, and totally you wedding photos? THIS Philly wedding photographer

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.

This minimalist Philly wedding proves that simple is CHIC

We decided to do an old school Champagne and Cake reception immediately following the wedding in the same space, the Philadelphia Wedding Chapel. The chapel is a decorated, NY-style loft space and you simply show up. We hired musicians on our own as live music was not included. The wedding and reception was ninety minutes total at 3:00pm. Only twenty-six people were in attendance.

This wedding was all about fairy garden meets Godzilla realness

When we talked about what we wanted most for our wedding day, “fun” was the number one item that came up. It was important to us that our wedding be joyous, loving, and a little silly, just like us. Once we found our wedding venue, a beautiful & bohemian private garden on the Allegheny river complete with a meditation hut & wandering chickens, the rest of the wedding came together fairly naturally.
