Where have you been featured?

The Knot, Wedding Wire. I’m pretty low key, just want to enjoy what I do and make sure our clients are satisfied with our services. Being humble make us see things differently, treat every wedding with a fresh outlook.

Why do couples love working with you?

We have fun at every wedding! We even let our clients fly our drones! Lol! We are not the assembly line type of wedding studio. We are personal, we reach out, we take the initiative to get to know our clients and their families, what they like, what they don’t like. No matter how well you want the wedding to be, ultimately it’s the client’s wedding. They need to be comfortable with everything. Put your egos aside, put clients first!

What do you love most about being a wedding photographer?

People having all sorts of emotions on the wedding day. It’s dynamic and unexpected! Being able to work together with equally passionate friends and teams! Love technology we are using, camera equipment, computers…, constantly updating and evolving, always staying on top of our games!

How did you get started?

In 2009 I was laid off, my old company went bankrupt. A wedding studio reached out to me on Facebook and asked if I want to learn and I took the offer! Two wedding assists later, the studio gave me a wedding and asked me to shoot and I was extremely nervous! Good thing I work well under pressure!

What 3 words best describe your wedding photography style?

Emotional, Fun, Epic!

What budget range do you cater to?

I would say somewhere from mid to slightly high for both photography and cinematography altogether. We want to offer our clients quality products and services and lots of time are invested on our side before and after the wedding to make sure everything goes as smooth as possible. Also, I want to make sure my friends and teams are well compensated for their hard work and dedication. There are a lot of freelancers out there wanting to make it big someday, but what they don’t understand is that a group of friends sharing the same goal, we can all make it more creative, more fun, and bigger!

Client Testimonial

If you want gorgeous, creative, amazing pictures that will capture your best day forever… BOOK THEM NOW!!!! Di and his team are the most amazing photographers I have ever worked with from the engagement shoot through the wedding it was nothing but a pleasure. They don’t make you do old fashioned boring poses, they make this FUN!!! Of course, some are conventional (come on you need and want some of those) but they have such a knack for creativity and vision that it was impressive what they did with us. Our first two pictures (I’m waiting on the edge of my seat for the rest of my wedding pictures) are beyond fantastic… gorgeous… beautiful… and the trailer is exactly what I dreamed of and actually told my mother I wanted before they even knew. They are just fantastic to work with fun, friendly, professional, and amazing. Seriously BOOK THEM TO PRESERVE YOUR SPECIAL DAY IN AN ARTISTIC AND FUN WAY!!!! Go now. Call. Do it.

Where do I even begin?! Di, Edison, Eddie, and Donnel are the incredible team that created the most memorable day for us. There are not enough adjectives in the English language to truly capture the essence that is Heartfelt. Each of the guys is fun, caring, and truly a master of their craft. They have an excellent ability to keep you laughing naturally on camera which helps capture the beauty of your love. They make you feel comfortable like you’ve been friends for years. I cannot even believe the moments that were captured and am so incredibly grateful to have those moments to last a lifetime. When the day is over the only thing you have left is your memories— if you want absolutely breathtaking memories — hire Heartfelt!

Client Testimonial

From the moment I saw a wedding photo taken by Di I knew I had to have him photograph my wedding. His work is absolutely breathtaking and after meeting with him it was an easy decision for my husband and I. He is SO easy going and fun to be around. During our engagement shoot and entire wedding day it truly felt like we were hanging out with a good friend who just happened to be photographing us. We initially planned to book for photography only as I had some interest in another videographer. After meeting with Di we decided to book with Heartfelt for video as well because we were that impressed with the quality of his work. The icing on the cake was how AMAZING his team was. Eddie, Edison, and Donnel were just as down to earth, hilarious, and talented. The “sneak peeks” we saw already have been more beautiful than I ever imagined they could be. Thank you to Heartfelt for documenting the most amazing day of our lives. You were an absolute pleasure to work with and I would book you a million times over. Michael and I will be recommending you to ALL of our friends and family.
