phone consultation

We'll chat all about your wedding plans and what is important to you. You'll also learn more about me. If we're a fit, we'll create a plan that works for you.


Once you receive your custom proposal, you can sign the contract, pay the retainer fee and then celebrate because you are officially booked!

Leading up to your wedding, we'll get comfortable with each other at your engagement session and touch base along the way to make sure you can relax and enjoy every minute of your wedding day.

While you enjoy newly married life, I'll send a sneak peek of your entire wedding day so you can re-live the moments ASAP. Your final gallery will be delivered about 8 weeks later.

Once you submit an inquiry, I'll check my availability and reach out with more information. If the date is open, we'll move on to the next step and begin your custom proposal.

I cannot say enough positive things about Heather. She is an amazing artist, extremely professional, exceptionally kind and friendly. Heather has a great eye for capturing a stunning moment, whether spontaneous or posed. She is so easy to work with. Anyone would be lucky to have Heather photograph their big life moments.

amazing experience!

- Alyssa & Jesse

Heather was my wedding photographer and I cannot recommend her highly enough! Not only did she capture hundreds of incredible images, but she was also an absolute delight to have present throughout the whole day. She was so warm, calm, and fun and made my husband and I feel so relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. You won’t regret booking her!

We absolutely loved working with Heather!! She was very responsive, very kind and helpful in answering all our questions, very organized and proactive, and simply a joy to be around day-of! I am overjoyed with the quality of our wedding pictures, and Heather just made our day so easy and fun. She was by far our favorite vendor :) I would highly recommend!!

the best decision we made!

THE heather mrva COUPLE:

Do you offer engagement sessions?

Yes! I offer complimentary engagement sessions when you book any full-day collection. I love them and recommend them to all my couples!

I take a limited number of weddings per year, so the earlier you can book, the better! I tend to book about 12-18 months in advance.

how far in advance do you book?

do you have a second photographer?

Yes, I include a second photographer for all wedding collections. Having two sets of hands and eyes on a wedding day makes everyone feel at ease.

For weddings located in Eastern VA, I do not charge any travel fees. There is a fee for any travel outside Eastern VA, based on the location. Inquire for more info.
