We are Hoffer Photography, a small collective of photographers based in Philadelphia, and we travel the world shooting genuine and original photos of amazing people. We’ve been called “some of the best wedding photographers in the country”** and our work has been featured around the world (The Guardian, HuffPost, Professional Photographer) and locally (Philadelphia Magazine, Main Line Today). Our photography is focused on intimacy and emotion while maintaining thoughtful care for lighting and composition.
Tony and Amy showed up to a wedding in 2007 with 1 camera between us and no idea how to take wedding photos. Within a few years we were traveling around the world shooting weddings, teaching workshops, speaking at conferences and getting published in a whole bunch of places. How? Well, we quickly learned that our industry often forgets about the most important thing: YOU. From the get go, we were always more fascinated about creating interesting and unique work that represented the people we were shooting for. Our goal is to have our favorite photo be your favorite photo. So we’ve dedicated ourselves to taking original images that show the real, genuine you. So whether you’re adventurous, goofy, nerdy or all of the above, we want to discover who you really are… and capture it in a way that you’d never expect.
Our team is made up of five friends that joined forces behind that same vision: creating genuine and original work for our couples. We’ve shot together, traveled together, laughed and cried together. We view ourselves as a true team whose strengths can help fortify our weaknesses. All of us (Amy/Tony, Jim and Chris) each meet with our own couples and shoot our own weddings. We’ll never book a wedding a throw a random photographer at you. We value the relationship with our clients and with each other. Together that results in a very caring and fun family of people that we call the Hoffsquad. Below you can find out about each of us, how we got here and what we love to do…

We’d love to share more with you about what we love. More than that, we’d love to find out about you. At it’s best, our work is a direct reflection of you, seen through our eyes. So the best and most meaningful thing we can do, is represent who you are. To hear one of our former brides say it: “They capture feelings in their photographs. No staged nonsense, no Pinterest trends; true, beautiful, raw, real emotions of the people you love. What else could you ever want.”
So we’d love for you to poke around at our reviews or reach out with any questions.
