Overly posed, stiff, and cheesy are not what you are going for on your wedding day. Your photos are supposed to reflect all the love and joy that actually happened - not what was "staged" for the sake of a pretty photo.

The key to having timeless photos that scream "that's so us!" is in working with someone whom you trust. Someone that helps you focus on what matters, makes you feel at ease, and also knows how to find the good angles without ruining the moment. I've spent my entire career learning how to do just that, so you can feel present and connected and get images that feel just like you.

treasuring life, love, and art in all it's beautiful honesty.

You will never regret printing your photos. Albums, art, and prints are all ways you can preserve your memories and share them for generations.

I'll focus on the details so you can focus on getting married. This is the day that you have hoped for and my goal is to help you soak it all up.

Engagement photos are a low-key, more relaxed way to capture your personalities and help you feel comfortable before the wedding day.

We have so many stunning photos that beautifully captured both our excitement and love as an engaged couple, and from our big day. Heather made us feel both at ease and close to each other. She is so easy to work with - super responsive, prompt, and clear in her communications. Anyone would be lucky to have Heather photograph their big life moments.

Heather is an amazing artist, extremely professional, and exceptionally kind.
