Heather Woolery Photography


My approach to the artistry I bring to your wedding day is mirrored in my life philosophy: nothing in excess and everything with intention. From the exchange of your vows amid the majestic mountain landscape to your first kiss as a married couple, I artfully capture the moments that will tell your story for generations to come through a blend of exquisite photography, vintage-inspired super8 b-roll videography, and timelessly elegant film.

In my 7+ years as a professional photographer, I’ve come to view photography as an artful form of storytelling that gives us a unique space to cultivate a connection and co-create a memorable experience. As your photographer, I partner with you on your special day and bring my impeccable attention to detail to capture stunning images and video that capture your unique essence as a couple.

When you select me as your photographer, you can be confident that your special day will be envisioned intentionally, executed excellently, and captured exquisitely. Every detail is attended to when I work with my couples to curate their dream-come-true experience, as I am devoted to deeply understanding your unique vision and providing the best suggestions, recommendations, and additional logistical support to ensure your experience is seamless from start to finish.

My streamlined service is curated to allow meaningful moments to unfurl, without the hurried and stressful pace that can often be expected for such big life events. Instead of feeling overwhelmed or pressured, you get to actually enjoy the moment and be fully present as we capture both the big and small moments (and the unexpected ones in between) throughout 10 spacious hours on your wedding or elopement day.

If you desire additional features or experiences, I offer the ability to curate a bespoke package that makes it simple to achieve cohesive documentation for your elevated and intentional celebration, whether you need to add additional days for full weekend coverage, an engagement session, a second photographer, additional film, or selecting a destination for your wedding.

My work has been featured on the cover of Rocky Mountain Bride Idaho 2021 and PopSugar, among other notable publications. As an Idaho native, Yellowstone CUA Guide and Permit holder, and Certified Leave No Trace Photographer, I’m passionate about preserving and capturing the natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains. If you value a slower pace, less stress, film, simple luxuries, nature, and connection, then we will be a great fit.

Love Notes
I wish I had the proper words to explain how amazing Heather is. As a wedding photographer myself, I was VERY picky when it came time to choose a photographer to capture our vow renewal. Heather flew out to Colorado from her home in Idaho. She hand made vow booklets for my husband and me. She braved a bitterly cold October day and made us a surprise video (UMM WHAT!)This woman is an artist with a heart of gold and an eye for moments others so easily miss. I could not be happier with the choice we made when we chose to have Heather photograph such an important moment for our marriage. I could not recommend this woman and her talent enough!

I cannot say enough how incredible Heather Woolery is. She made me and my fiance so comfortable and relaxed throughout the whole process. At the last minute, we had to find a new location for our elopement and within two days Heather had mapped out a PERFECT location for us to relocate to. She is dedicated, dependable, and so sweet! Not to mention our photographs were absolutely perfect! They told our story so beautifully. If I ever need a photographer for future events she is the first one I'll be calling!

10/10 would recommend and will rebook with her again. Heather is an artist and very good at what she does. Plus, she's just good people. She took the time to get to know who we were before we met for the shoot, so it felt like she knew us as individuals and as a couple before we began. During the shoot, it was surprising that even though we knew we were being photographed, we were able to feel "alone together" in the moment. We're not super relaxed with getting our picture taken because sometimes photoshoots can feel fake or rigid in a way, but Heather knew how to get us to open up and be genuinely playful without making us feel like we were purposefully posing or pretending to have a candid moment. It didn't feel like a photoshoot to us - it felt more like a date or a unique shared experience where we got to make memories together on the Palouse hills. The beauty and quality of her photos speak for themselves - vibrant, thoughtful, and real. It was amazing to see the energy and connection her creative eye caught between me and my partner. Plus, she got all our good angles without needing to ask!

What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with?

Couples Who: Want to show up to your elopement without having to worry about the logistics, are looking to getting away from the production/mainstream wedding planning process and curate something with more intention that feels like it reflects your unique love story, prefer the beauty of natural landscapes and outdoor spaces over manufactured backdrops, and value connection and the little details, and want an elevated and customized experience from your elopement/wedding vendors

Do you travel for clients? If so, where?

I absolutely love to travel, and include basic travel fees in my package! I also hold a Yellowstone CUA permit for the last 3+ years and have captured weddings and elopements in multiple National Parks and internationally.

Where do you find your design inspiration?

Being your wedding photographer is more than just me being a vendor, it's a collaboration. I love pulling inspiration from my couples and the location they chose to get married as well as movies, books, and nature. All of these together help create a unique and bespoke approach to my couples and their wedding day.
