ATLANTA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER AND AVAILABLE FOR TRAVEL

WE ARE APPLEHEAD PHOTOGRAPHY AND DESIGN, AND OUR COMBINATION OF DIRECTING AND DOCUMENTING PROVIDES OUR CLIENTS WITH PHOTOS OF RAW EMOTIONS AND INTERACTIONS, AND ALLOWS US TO TRULY GET TO KNOW EACH AND EVERY PERSON WE PHOTOGRAPH. IT'S PRETTY AWKWARD TO HAVE YOUR PHOTO TAKEN BY A COUPLE OF STRANGERS, BUT OUR HOPE IS THAT BY THE END OF THE DAY, YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAD YOUR PHOTOS TAKEN BY A PAIR OF OLD FRIENDS. TO US, IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT THE END PRODUCT YOU RECEIVE – IT'S ABOUT THE ADVENTURE AND THE MEMORIES WE CREATED IN ORDER TO DO SO.

dramatic. unconventional. timeless.

we're philip and heather

collectively known by most as Pheather.

WE'RE BFFS FIRST, HUSBAND AND WIFE SECOND, AND FULL TIME CHIHUAHUA ADVOCATES THIRD. IN 2017 IN ATLANTA, WE STARTED APPLEHEAD PHOTOGRAPHY AND DESIGN, A NAME HONORING OUR BELOVED CHIHUAHUA FURBABIES. WE HAVE SINCE DEDICATED OUR COMPANY TO OUR SWEET VADER, WHOSE LITTLE FACE AND BIG HEART WILL FOREVER BE CHERISHED AND MISSED. WE'RE PRETTY MUCH THE ANTITHESIS OF OUR PHOTOS. MOST OF THE TIME WE'RE JOKING AROUND, AND WE'RE ADVOCATES OF DRAMA-FREE ZONES, BUT WHEN WE CREATE ART, WE ARE DRAWN TO DRAMATIC LIGHTING AND TIMELESS EXPRESSIONS. AND NO MATTER WHERE WE ARE IN LIFE, WE WILL ALWAYS BE HUMBLE ENOUGH TO EAT RED BARON PIZZA AND SHOP AT THE THRIFT STORE BECAUSE IF WE'RE BEING HONEST, DOES IT REALLY MATTER IF YOU'RE WITH YOUR BEST FRIEND?

heather
LEAD PHOTOGRAPHER/EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

HEATHER DOESN'T ENJOY WRITING IN THIRD PERSON OR WRITING AUTOBIOGRAPHIES, BUT SOMETIMES WE HAVE TO DO WHAT WE HATE. PHILIP WRANGLED HEATHER INTO STARTING APD IN 2017 AND THOUGH HESITANT AND SHY AT FIRST, HEATHER HAS GROWN INTO HER CREATIVE SELF AND CAN'T IMAGINE DOING ANY OTHER JOB. SHE THINKS THE BEST PART OF PHOTOGRAPHY IS EXPRESSING PEOPLE'S MEMORIES AS WORKS OF ART AND MEETING A BAGILLION PEOPLE SHE NEVER WOULD HAVE BEFORE. HER CHIHUAHUAS ARE THE WAY TO HER HEART, BUT A HUGE SERVING OF PANEER TIKKA MASALA NEVER HURT EITHER. WHEN YOU MESSAGE APD, SHE'S THE FIRST PERSON YOU'LL MEET!

philip
LEAD PHOTOGRAPHER/MASTER RETOUCHER

PHILIP DOESN'T HAVE TO WRITE HIS OWN BIOGRAPHY, SO HE'S HAPPY ABOUT THAT. PHILIP'S 8 YEARS IN THE MILITARY SURPRISINGLY PREPARED HIM TO GO INTO A CREATIVE FIELD YEARS AFTER HIS DEPARTURE FROM SERVICE. HIS NATURAL LEADERSHIP SKILLS AND OFF-THE-WALL IDEAS COME INTO PLAY IN EACH WEDDING AND PHOTOSHOOT. WHEN HE'S NOT OBSESSIVELY REMOVING EVERY BLEMISH FROM A PHOTO, HE ENJOYS SPLITTING FIREWOOD (WHEN HIS FOREARMS AREN'T INJURED FROM OVERUSE) AND EATING AND SMELLING NACHOS. HE'S KNOWN FOR HIS PRINTED FLORAL SHIRTS BY SOME AND BY HEATHER, HE'S KNOWN FOR BAKING FROZEN PIZZAS TO PERFECTION.

KIND WORDS FROM PAST APPLEHEAD BRIDES

“THEIR PERSONALITIES ARE SO EASY GOING AND FUNNY; PEOPLE YOU WANT TO BE BEST FRIENDS WITH AFTER THE SHOOT. ALL OF OUR GUESTS ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT HOW PERSONABLE THEY ARE AS HUMANS, BUT ALSO HOW CAPTIVATING THEIR PHOTOGRAPHS ARE. THEIR WORK SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.”
-AUTUMN, APRIL 2022

THE APPLEHEAD DIFFERENCE

WE'RE THE AMAZON PRIME OF PHOTOGRAPHY

it's our investment in you

WE USE THE WORD “INVESTMENT” TO DESCRIBE HOW WE INVEST OURSELVES IN YOU AND YOUR DAY. YOUR WEDDING ADVENTURE WITH US IS MORE THAN A SERVICE AND YOU ARE MORE TO US THAN A CLIENT. WE ARE HERE FOR YOU AS MORE THAN PHOTOGRAPHERS. WE'LL SERVE YOU IN ANY WAY WE CAN, WHETHER THAT'S KEEPING TRACK OF YOUR TIMELINE, RUNNING TO GET YOUR MOM SO SHE DOESN'T MISS A MOMENT, CARRYING YOUR TRAIN, HOLDING YOUR BOUQUET, OR JUST BEING A FRIEND. AT THE END OF THE DAY, BEING A PART OF YOUR WEDDING MEANS MORE TO US THAN THE PAYCHECK WE RECEIVE. IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT PRODUCING BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS. IT'S ABOUT BEING THERE FOR YOU IN ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT MOMENTS IN YOUR LIFE SO THAT YOU REMEMBER IT FOR ALL ITS JOYS AND NOTHING LESS.
