Meet Joe Appel, Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer
One of the “Top 50 US Wedding Photographers.”
Choosing a photographer for your wedding can be tricky! But it doesn’t have to be complicated. I’m Joe Appel and I’m here to help make it easy for you.
When you look around my website you’re going to see brides, grooms and their families laughing, crying, hugging, kissing – feeling all the feels! I’ve photographed hundreds of weddings over the years in all sorts of venues around Pittsburgh and across the country. No matter if your wedding is in a barn or a ballroom, you’ll look at your images in years to come and those emotions will be right there with you again.
I create award-winning, candid, storytelling images for happy couples on their wedding day. My photos focus on moment and emotion, and I combine those with modern and creative portraits to tell your unique story.
Here’s how we’ll do it – just be yourselves and have the best day of your lives! I’ll blend in and make pictures that don’t just show you what you look like, but how you feel.
“Joe is simply the best…If you’re getting married-book him immediately!” –Bridget & Sevan
