It's Our Investment in You
In your wedding planning, you've probably seen the word "investment," where the idea is that you're investing your money in exchange for a service. For us, we use the term 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 consumer. 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. If you honor us by choosing us as your photographers, our actions and attitudes will reflect nothing less than that. It’s not just about producing beautiful photos, which we will inevitably do; 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.
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.

Best photographers and a dream to work with!
There are not enough words to say how amazing Heather and Philip are! They put us both at so much ease during our engagement shoot, my husband's grad photos, and on our wedding day. We had to postpone our wedding and then we reduced it to less than 20 people and moved it to Gatlinburg and I told my husband I absolute refused to give up Pheather as our photographers. Thankfully they were able to travel to Gatlinburg and the pictures were a dream come true. Our pictures look similar to a stylized shoot which is what I was hoping for since my husband and I wanted ones that looked more like artwork than traditional wedding photos and Pheather absolutely delivered. They made us laugh the whole time and seemed to have the perfect thing to say when I got stressed and started to get overwhelmed during group photos. Their turn around time for photos is insanely fast and I was so thankful to not have to wait multiple months to get my photos like so many of my friends have had to do. I cannot recommend them enough and they deserve more than 5 stars!Sent on 03/24/2021

There really aren’t sufficient words in the English language to express how amazing these guys are. Philip and Heather beautifully captured every detail of our wedding day. Usually you have to pick between quantity and quality. One look at their photos and you know they exemplify quality. Because of this, I honestly was not expecting to have as many unique, posed shots as we ended up with, in addition to candid reception shots, group shots, details, and everything else. I seriously don’t know how they did it. Every single photo is absolutely incredible. Not only can they pose, compose, and edit in a beautifully artistic way, they also are insanely talented candid photographers and know how to capture moments and expressions, which as a photographer, can be REALLY hard to do.
They got it all. I can’t believe the number of photos they turned over to us, in LESS than two weeks (ten days, to be exact), and not just that, but the quality of everything and the variety, it’s just amazing. We got so many unique posed shots, each one is absolutely stunning and something we would hang on our wall. They got details of EVERYTHING, so even though we were too busy to remember what our cake even looked like, they got several shots of it and every other detail of the day. They asked us what group photos we wanted and got those for us, they work SUPER fast and the results are perfect. Philip worked with me and my groomsmen to make some really special group shots that are the absolute coolest photos I’ve ever been a part of. They did our first look, but kept it really low key, which is how we wanted it. They just totally got us and our style. On our day-after photo shoot, they brought the drone along and made some really cool aerial shots and over the water shots. I just can’t say enough about how much effort they put in and how far they went to make our photos truly special. It is obvious that they care so much about their clients and their craft. They are simply the best at what they do, and you can tell they really love doing it.
As if all this wasn’t enough, they are genuinely kind, funny, and fun people to have around on your special day. We honestly had so much fun just hanging out with them, we were instant friends. They work in such a relaxed, but efficient way. They aren’t the kind of photographers that are going to add to your stress, In fact, they do very much the opposite and help you enjoy your day.
If you’re looking for an amazingly talented, artistic team of photographers to capture your wedding day, with impeccable quality and style, you won’t find any better than Philip and Heather. They were truly a pleasure to work with, and the photos exceeded our wildest expectations. Thank you guys!!!Sent on 12/15/2020

Ah maz ing
Heather and Phillip have a GOD GIVEN TALENT. Their ideas just flow off each other and they are so easy to work with! Their photos are definitely unmatched by any, my turn around time for my wedding photos was unreal! I will always recommend them (my sister is actually using them in her wedding next month!). Having two photographers is a game changer, you may not think about it but they get every angle of your big day so nothing is missed!Sent on 12/06/2020

Team of Applehead Photography & Design
Lead Photographer/Editor Supreme
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!
Lead Photographer/Master Spot Corrector
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.
