After 10 years of photographing weddings, Fortunate Hearts Cinema was born out of our desire to tell love stories in a more complete way. With Adam’s need to constantly be challenging himself, growing, learning, and pushing the boundaries of technology — and Katie’s background in playwriting and poetry, we've found a deeper way to celebrate the love stories of couples that will transport you right back to exactly how your wedding day felt.
