We are delighted to welcome Joelle Kisthardt, owner and head photographer of All My Love Photography, to our list of Cream Ridge, New Jersey photographers. After several years spent as a second shooter in the New Jersey wedding industry, Joelle and her fiance, Jeff, decided to start their own company. Together, they work to document contemporary wedding images that are both detailed and romantic.
“We really enjoy getting to know the couples we work with, hearing their true love stories, and helping capture their special moments through pictures!”
Although Joelle has enjoyed taking pictures her entire life, she has been a professional photographer for almost 4 years now. She went to college for illustration and design and worked in many art mediums. What made her ultimately fall in love with photography? Her first black and white film photography class.
“Light is essential in all forms of art, but there is something special about how the camera allows us to capture light and all its beauty, exactly as it is.”
Joelle looks to light, color, and life for inspiration for her photos.
“Every day when I’m driving I have to keep myself from stopping to take a million pictures of every flower, tree, and field that I pass. The people in my life inspire me as well; I’m always jumping in family’s faces with the camera. I love to capture moments as they are happening.”
1. The bride is never late, the wedding simply cannot start without her.
2. Tide-to-Go Pens might just be one of the best inventions ever.
3. When shooting near water, never walk backwards.
4. She can tie a tie and pin a boutonniere like a pro!
5. Wear comfortable shoes.
A fun personal fact about Joelle? She gets really excited about her work. She was recently shooting a wedding with her fiance, and she was getting excellent lighting in the photos. After the shoot, she was all smiles- literally jumping up and down with excitement.
“The couple couldn’t stop laughing at me, and said that they really enjoyed how spirited I am about my work!”
