Six Hearts Photography is a team of photographers trained in Fine Art that create images with substance from the most authentic weddings around the world.
Editor’s Note: for this Best Wedding Photographers in Atlanta Spotlight, we had the pleasure of interviewing Schellie, from Six Hearts Photography.
Where have you been featured?
We have been featured a slew of places internationally but our favorites to brag about are Buzzfeed, Rock N Roll Bride, and when we won First Place in a photography competition by Rangefinder Magazine, an international and elite photography magazine.
Why do couples love working with you?
We received this review long ago that better puts into words than we could humbly do ourselves why couples love working with us: “[They are] so wired into people. This divine connection they have with each other, with others and the raw talent they both possess makes them the very best at what they do – capture life and emotion as it is happening. They were so receptive to our ideas and wishes and delivered photos that were far beyond our expectations. They knew instantly that we are a quirky and non-traditional couple and they celebrated US through their work.”
What do you love most about being a wedding photographer?
There are so many things to love about being a wedding photographer. Love is the most sincere form of art and getting a peek into other peoples world to capture that is an honor as an artist. It really is a dream world. Everyone is all dressed up, on their best behavior, there’s love everywhere and dancing and cocktails. There’s a magical aura in the air that makes you laugh and cry with people you don’t even know. It’s the ultimate party. Wedding Photography encompasses so many different things. It’s portrait photography, event photography, fashion photography, architectural photography, landscape photography, jewelry photography, indoor photography, outdoor photography, and on and on. It’s all the photography-s put into one and it never gets boring and you just don’t find that in other photography fields.
How did you get started?
Photography is a lifetime thing for us all. We were those kids that took our camera everywhere, so there really is no start or end, just the beginning of new explorations. As far as weddings specifically, William began in 2007 in his first year of earning his Fine Art Photography Degree after he learned that 55% of all money made in professional photography came from Weddings. Schellie and William met in 2012 while Schellie was pursuing her Art Degree – they got married and she left school to focus on their wedding photography. Rachael found our team in 2014 after growing up with a family in photography and began as our Editor with us before photographing weddings.
What 3 words best describe your wedding photography style?
Something of Dreams
What budget range do you cater to?
Our clients’ budgets vary. We don’t cater to budget – we cater to style and priorities.
I cannot say enough about the glorious people at Six Hearts. They were truly the bright spot on my wedding day and I will forever have their gorgeous, artistic photos to stare at incessantly for the rest of eternity. They were prompt, efficient, funny and so pleasant to work with. I also recommend hiring their dj cuttlefish and robotbooth. A+++++ experience with all of them!
[Their] professionalism and enthusiasm were far more than I have experienced previously and definitely exceeded my expectations. We wanted something different and [they] delivered that far beyond what I thought I wanted. Super easy to talk to, explain your ideas to, and exceptional at making your ideas come to life and providing you with an unforgettable experience. I knew we had made a good decision choosing Six Hearts as our photographer but I never knew how much their work would blow us away and create lasting memories and images that we can always cherish that aren’t at all posed or boring; they’re just us being us and to be able to capture that kind of love and realness is beyond anything I could have ever imagined. So if you’re looking for someone to charge you too much to take high-resolution photos that look posed and boring then you should choose someone else. If you want your photos to capture who you are, the person you love, how you feel about each other, and also make you look amazing in the process (and have fun while doing it) choose Six Hearts because I guarantee you won’t find anyone better and more fun to work with.
