Richmond Wedding Photographer, Heather Hughes

Welcome new friends! I'm Heather, a wedding and outdoor portrait photographer based near Williamsburg, VA in Coastal Virginia.


Nationally published & award-winning throughout my career as a newspaper and wedding photographer, I truly love to capture life's moments as they happen.


My favorite photos are:

1. Moments that capture personality, happiness & love
2. Storytelling memories (and details)

3. Gorgeous light, sunsets & nature

4. Romantic poses and funny looks


What you can expect:

1. Friendly & helpful expert guidance before AND after your session (more on that HERE )

2. Knack for putting everyone at ease (even the camera shy ;)

3. Laughter & smiles from me - even while shooting!!!

4. Posing tips and professionalism

4. Gorgeous photos that you will treasure for generations


Since I left newspapers to run my wedding & portrait biz full time in the Richmond and Williamsburg area in 2008, I have photographed over 400 weddings, 90 newborn sessions, and 400 portraits. And I love that my wedding couples often become clients for life! It's humbling to hear what an amazing experience they have working with me, and the appreciation for my ability to capture moments in action alongside beautiful portraits.


I can't wait to share that experience with you!
