we are a COLLECTIVE OF PHOTOGRAPHERS & VIDEOGRAPHERS
DOCUMENTING LIFE, LOVE & ADVENTURE IN THE MIDWEST.
Happily rooted between the fences and fields of the great Midwest and available for travel because...well, mountains + beaches...our team has a unique approach to documenting meaningful stories. As independent business owners, each member of the Collective has their own perspective, their own mantra and work-ethic.
Our goal is to deliver artful, authentic and emotion-focused photographs & films that will lead you back, make you feel the way you felt in the moment. Inspired by the lands that raised us, our work is colorful, full of life and the Midwestern seasons and landscapes! We share a true love for preserving the fleeting memories that matter in the places you love. Each photographer aims to tell your story; unique, beautiful and real.
The Heartlanders Collective was founded by Northeast Ohio husband & wife team Mallory + Justin.
M+J have photographed weddings together for eight years. When their passion for adventure and travel became their priority, they took to the road to live a nomadic life and created The Heartlanders in order to continue serving their awesome clients in the Midwest. This collective, a true dream team of artists, grew organically through collaborations and friendships. We share a passion for creating, for preserving and for telling stories. When you hire a photographer, you'll be working directly with Mallory, she handles all communications, planning and booking. Justin heads up the tech & support side of the business. You can hire M+J as a team to document your story or another photographer who's style you love. Take a look at each portfolio to see who's work you connect with most.
We offer both photography and videography services.
You can book both photography and videography services together or just one, whatever you need. We also offer photography and videography for engagements, portraits and families.
moments that matter. stories that matter.
Every detail, every fleeting emotion...the big ones, the little ones, the ones in-between. We document what matters. We document what's real. Our goal is to document your experience truthfully and beautifully and to return it back to you in a tangible form that will live on for generations.
