Hi there! I’m Heather, a wedding and portrait photographer living in Hampton Roads, VA.
And I believe the BEST photos are not when your hair is perfect or you’re looking at the camera, but when you are being yourself and truly living in the moment.
And nothing makes me happier than capturing those moments and milestones in people’s lives.
Ever since I was 7, I knew I wanted to be a photographer. But not the average photographer I saw around me, setting up photos with fake smiles and awkward poses. I wanted to capture candid moments and emotion – so I decided to become a photojournalist.
I earned my BSVC at Ohio University, the BEST photojournalism school in the country, and built an award-winning newspaper career in Virginia. I photographed presidents, famous athletes, and had special access at concerts and other events. But the hours were rough, so when we decided to start a family I knew I needed a change. So in 2008, I decided to leave newspapers and build an award-winning wedding & portrait biz focusing on the HAPPY moments in people’s lives.
Best decision of my life.
After witnessing over 300 weddings and 250 portraits, I am proud to celebrate 10 years in business capturing fun, timeless memories of the important milestones in people’s lives that they can look back on and remember forever.
