Amy & Tony Hoffer
Photographers

We (Amy & Tony) shot our first wedding exactly a month before our own in 2007. With only word-of-mouth, the business quickly took over and we were knee-deep into a life as photographers. We quickly realized is that we didn’t like standard wedding-industry norms, but were energized by the people we were meeting. So we started doing things a little differently…

Rather than focusing our energy on how to perfect a particular style, we focused on how to tailor our work for each couple… often changing how we shoot to best fit who we’re shooting for. That really resonated with people and within a few years we found ourselves traveling around the world shooting and teaching for people that wanted to explore creative photography without losing the heart behind the images. Now we’ve shot on 5 continents and all across the U.S., but we’re still 100% word-of-mouth.

In our free time, we love being dog parents (a bit too much), traveling, eating everything in sight and being amateur athletes. We’d love to get to know you too. That’s why we’re here.

Lindsay Banecker
Studio Manager, 2nd Shooter

We want you to love your images, but we don’t want you to have to jump through hoops to get them. If you’ve ever been around creative people, then you already know why Lindsay is so important. Lindsay runs the show. She makes sure all our clients are getting their images as quickly as possible (very fast), keeping us on track behind-the-scenes and keeping up with our clients over email. We get so much great feedback from people about how easy and efficient things are and Lindsay gets the credit for that. Aside from running much of our day-to-day, Lindsay also 2nd shoots many weddings with Jim and Chris.

Lindsay lives in Philly and spends a lot of her time and most of her money going out in the city; much less money, but even more time Netflixing and podcasting; and not nearly enough time being the best darn dog-Godmother you’ve ever seen.

Jim Heine
Associate Photographer

You know how good it feels when you make someone laugh? That’s what it’s like to be around Jim… all the time. Years before Jim was shooting for us he was helping out wherever he could and is so hungry to learn, grow and experience new things and new people. We’re completely honored to call him part of the HoffSquad and to have his amazing body of work be a part of our team.

Jim captures emotion like almost no one else can. His laid back nature perfectly suites a documentary style and will help you feel completely comfortable and allows him to make extraordinary images. You might never notice Jim while he’s shooting, but when you do, you’ll see a smile on his face.

Jim loves rock climbing, exploring and nice long hugs. He lives in Baltimore and travels all over the place to shoot. His odometer gets a workout.

Chris Fuertes
Associate Photographer

We didn’t know that Chris would become an amazing photographer when Amy & Tony shot his wedding a few years back, but we should have. From his hunger to learn, his good taste and his being the friendliest person in any room, it was easy to see why Chris would be so instinctually good at photography. There are few who work as hard to push creative boundaries as Chris does.

What makes photography so wonderful is that you get to preserve a moment for decades. It’s fascinating to think that Chris is doing that for us now. We’re so happy and lucky to have Chris as in our squad. You’ll love him. Just try not to let him dance too much.

Chris is also an honest-to-goodness, live-saving doctor. We only abuse his medical knowledge occasionally. He’s originally from Austin, TX but his wife (Jana) and two young kids have him trapped outside of Philly… and he ain’t going nowhere.
