Professional Photographer Joan Heffler Specializes in Corporate, Family and Wedding Photography

I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up, so I made it a lifelong adventure to find out.  I finally figured it out in a really circuitous route, and I became a “people photographer.”  Yup! I specialize in capturing people’s unique personalities, and it is so interesting.  It has made my life rich and full, and I hope I have made a difference in the lives of those who I photographed.

Now in my second decade as a full time professional photographer of weddings, portraits, events, and corporate; I have found my free expression…MY personality. I am loving it, and invite you to let me find yours.

Joan Heffler Photography  goes anywhere in the world to be a part of your world. From Albany to Syracuse, Saratoga Springs to the Adirondacks and beyond;  my signature is Pictures With Personality whether capturing a joyful life experience, a single moment in time, or a significant corporate event, wedding, or bar/bat mitzvah.

I’m so glad you captured the waltz ~ you were the only one who did. Your photographs are clearly at a high artistic level ~ you saw the subtle, the beautiful and the meaningful.
