Love Notes

“Congratulations, your photographer search is over. You have officially found the best! Heather captured our wedding day beautifully and authentically. The items we were complimented most about from our wedding: food and photographer. Before ever even seeing a finished photo, everyone told us that Heather was the best. She is SO FUN and makes everyone feel so comfortable, therefore was able to capture such beautiful and candid photos. We have now hired Heather for photography three times for various moments and will continue to find an excuse to hire her annually and you should too! Cannot say enough nice things about her.”

– Sarah D.

“I cannot recommend Heather enough!  I happened upon her by sheer luck.  One of my closest friends recommended her and desperate for a photographer for my very last minute wedding I decided to look into her portfolio.  I was stunned at her work.  I immediately contacted her and together we made flexible plans for a 2020 Halloween wedding. Having never had any professional photographs taken, I was extremely nervous as I often struggle with shyness.  Heather alleviated any fears I had and made me feel 100% comfortable with her while my husband and I were taking each other in on our special day.  She must also be a photography wizard because I am without a doubt one of the most awkward people when the camera comes out and usually freeze.  She made my husband and I look and feel like models and I adore our wedding day photos.  I view the photographs as art that we will hang on our walls for the rest of our lives.  If you are considering Heather, please hire her if you have the means to do so.  I promise you won’t regret it.  Her art truly speaks for itself.”

“Heather is the best. I have worked with her for years, both for commercial shoots for my company and personal shoots of my family. She is very talented and has a truly unique aesthetic. She is really good at creating natural images that don’t look posed. The shoots are fun and relaxed. She has a great eye for nature and bringing out the best of any location. I love working with Heather and strongly encourage you to check her out.”

Fun facts

What do you consider your style to be?

My photography style is rooted in the way I interact with my clients and their families, and is what sets me apart from everyone else. Open-mouth laughter is my calling card. My candid-as-art style works well for documenting real life in a way that still looks and feels beautiful. I want to deliver the happy tears, the big laughs, and the tender moments!

What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with?

I am truly a photographer for everyone who wants my candid style! I take pride in being able to make anyone comfortable, and being inclusive of BIPOC and LGTBQ+ community always and forever. If fun and genuine connection is your priority I am the gal for you.

How did you get started in the wedding industry?

Coming from outdoor extreme sports photography fro over 8 years, I made my transition to couples and weddings by being asked to shoot some friends events and realizing it was my true calling. I left the sports photography world and never looked back!

What is your favorite part about a wedding?

Connecting with my couple and their families to make their day as special and memorable as possible. I'm not a background vendor, I'm a friend and an advocate from the moment you hire me. My job is an honor and a privilege and I take pride in being hands-on from start to finish. Plus, I'm hilarious.
