An introduction to Me:
Hello, my name is Harmony Renee. I am a professional photographer born and raised in Pennsylvania. I earned my Associates degree in Photography from Trident Technical College in Charleston, SC, and my Bachelor's degree in Communications from Keystone College in La Plume, PA.
I love spending time with my family and friends. My rescue dog Buddy holds my entire heart. I am a BIG believer in adopting shelter animals, or rescues. My husband and I got 'hitched' on October 4, 2014. We were High School Sweethearts, and I cannot imagine my life without him. We are currently residing in NEPA. We enjoy spending time together creating our own adventures.
I love the country, and the simple life, and that's what brought us back to NEPA. Although this life- this country life-- is beautiful, the time I spent in South Carolina was wonderful, and I do miss it a lot. I miss the sunshine, traffic, city lights, and beaches, but no matter how far I stray from the south, a piece of my heart will always remain there. I live each day as if it's my last, and I try to make the best of every situation. It's rare to find me without a smile on my face, and a song in my head.
My relationship with Photography
My passion for photography became apparent at a young age, when I took a photography course during 4H Day Camp. We worked with disposable cameras learning to pose our subjects and learning the correct way photograph them. From that point on I always wanted to take pictures. I went through more digital cameras than any person should. I always had one in my hands, and I was always taking pictures. In 2010, I took a Digital Media class at Keystone College, I fell in love with the DSLR camera that I used to shoot my project. I finally had a vision of what I wanted to do. That December I got my first DSLR camera, and I knew my heart strings were pulling toward a new adventure. As 2011 began my boyfriend, now husband, and I were given the opportunity to relocate to Charleston, SC and the following fall I began my photography education at Trident Technical College. In 2013 I graduated with my Associate's degree in Photography. That fall we followed our roots back to Pennsylvania, and I began my photography business. I have followed my dream, and am ready to go wherever it leads me.
Our unique and personal spin on Photography

My team’s goal is to photograph each Wedding with the personality and characteristics of the bride and groom in mind. We like to have fun while working hard to make your photography experience everything you could imagine, we also strive to allow everyone in the bridal party to be comfortable, and have fun as well! We enjoy capturing all the big moments of your wedding, as well as the candid shots. We do this with a unique and traditional take on lifestyle/documentary portraiture. We take into account every aspect of what our clients want from their wedding photographs and we deliver that to them. As a team, we are here to work for our clients, and make their photography experience wonderful!
Having a personal touch and a unique style is what we strive for at each shoot. Creating images that our clients love is our mission. We strive to create images that tell a story, not only of your special day, in the case of weddings, but also of your life through the creation of your personalized portraits.
I love being able to capture a memory, for myself and for others. Memories last a lifetime, being able to revisit them, is genuinely a gift. I like being able to present people with that gift, to hold it forever.
