Monterre Vineyards Wedding

What’s with Jim Heine Photography and cigar-smoking brides? It must be a testament to the up-for-anything, don’t-take-themselves-too-seriously type of clients we tend to attract. And they say photographers will book clients who are most like themselves, so either I totally missed my tobacco-loving calling in life, or the far more likely scenario, my clients and I simply share a similar sense of humor and a fun-loving demeanor.
A & B tied the knot at the Lehigh Valley’s Moterre Vineyards amongst a beautiful Fall setting, and it is our pleasure to share the story of their day through these images.

Fearless Award!

So I got some exciting news yesterday. I just joined the Fearless Photographers last year and already won my first award for the photo below! Only about 2% of entries win an award, competing among the absolute best wedding photographers in the world! Woohoo!

I am so thrilled that of all my photos taken at approximately 200 weddings, the photo below was recognized. This photo showcases what is important to me as a photographer and why couples should hire someone really good to photograph their wedding. In addition to all the normal photos and moments that are always captured at a wedding, I try my darnedest to capture the meaningful moments with the people who are important to my couples (whether friends, family, or meandering hobos). I hope Mindy will cherish the photo forever and it’ll remind her of the wonderful grandmother who is part of her life. I may be the last professional photographer to capture many loved ones at a wedding and I take that job extremely seriously.

I want my couples to have eye candy photos to brag with on Facebook after the wedding. But just as importantly, I want them to have meaningful heirloom photos to look back on 50 or 60 years from now – to remember important relationships in their lives, their youthful love, and also to show off how cool they were to the grandkids.
