Capture love and joy in real time — and then frame it .

my vision

As someone who wants to savor the good in this life, I am inspired by all the ways love shows up on your wedding day. It's those happy tears streaming down your face as you exchange vows, or the side-splitting laughter during speeches. It's those little touches that carry so much emotion. Your trust in me to document these meaningful moments excites me, and I can't wait to preserve these memories for you.

My work is about so much more than just taking pretty photos

Investments are customized to meet your needs — inquire to begin

In addition to a personal and heart-filled experience, you'll also receive high-quality images and products. In addition to your digital gallery - delivered in an online client portal- you'll also have the option to purchase top-notch heirloom albums and prints to preserve your story for generations.

high-quality from start to finish

Working with a limited, selected number of couples a year allows for a personal and approachable experience. I believe in kind-hearted communication, openness with expression, and approachability with your vision and values. This means getting to know you on a personal level so your images are filled with heart.

exceptional service from the heart

While I love a good portrait (and you'll get plenty!), I won't use cheesy prompts or stiff, inauthentic poses. Your wedding day doesn't need extra fluff to make it beautiful- it will be beautiful because you are genuinely enjoying the day. I'm dedicated to finding the moments that matter to you and capturing them to enjoy forever.

no fluff, only real moments

At our first phone call, we absolutely fell in love with her. Heather has this magic to her, she brightens up every room she enters. Even after the wedding, we stayed friends and of course my family also LOVES her! Heather is very attentive and will take your wishes to another level. She is literally the best thing that happened to our wedding!

"She was able to bring out the best of us despite my husband being camera shy"

I can’t say enough about Heather and what she meant to our day. We have said over and over that she was the best choice we made for our wedding. She took the time to get to know us, the people who are important to us, and what we value in our relationship. We cannot recommend her enough!

"Heather is truly a gift and we feel lucky to have had her as part of our wedding day."
