Welcome, I'm so happy you're here! I'm Heather, a wedding and portrait photographer near Williamsburg, VA in Hampton Roads.
And I believe the best photos are not necessarily when your hair is perfect or you're staring at the camera. I prefer true happiness and joy and favor photos of you being yourself and truly living in the moment to stiff poses.
I have always been a photographer, carrying around a camera since I was 7 yrs. old. And while I started out taking pictures of my stuffed animals, I quickly found myself focusing on real moments & emotion. For me, the best photos tell stories so I love to capture personality, emotion, and timeless moments at all my sessions.
I earned my BSVC at Ohio Unv. (the BEST photojournalism school in the country) and quickly became an award-winning newspaper photographer in Virginia (along with my equally talented husband Rob). I photographed presidents, famous athletes, concerts, Queen Elizabeth, and TONS of sports & events around VA in 8 years. But I wanted something different.
So in 2008, I made the jump, left newspapers, and started my own wedding & portrait biz focusing on treasured moments in people's lives.
Best decision of my life.
After seeing over 350 weddings and 400 portraits, I am proud to celebrate 10 years in business capturing memories and important milestones in people's lives. I feel blessed to be able to share my gift and help others preserve the joy & happiness in their lives for generations.
