One of the “50 Top US Wedding Photographers.”
Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer
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 make that decision easy for Pittsburgh couples.
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.
Take a look around my website and you’ll 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.
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.
From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!!! You have done so much for us from shooting our Greek wedding to being a complete God-send on our Hotel Monaco wedding morning. You went so far above & beyond for us. We are forever grateful.Yasmine & Andrew
