Meet Heather


Headshots-0085-683x1024Hi there! I’m Heather, and I am so excited that you’re here!

No, seriously!!! I am really am SUPER excited!!! I am probably one of the most optimistic people you’ll ever meet. You’ll never see me without a smile on my face, or so I’ve been told. I feel so lucky that I get to do something I love and even more honored to share it with each and every person that sees the love, hardwork, and passion I put into my work. I like to keep things simple but fun with lots of laughter in between.

I am located in a sweet little town in Southern Virginia that I love to pieces, but don’t get me wrong, I LOVE to travel! So, if your wedding is in Italy, a few hours away or even just another state away, I am more than happy to travel. I am a wife to my hard working husband and NUMBER ONE biggest fan, Robert. Together we have two cats, Sola + Luna, and a sweet pup, Cooper who really are our children so to speak. Family and friends mean the world to me and constantly inspire me to be a better person every day. Not only that, but they encourage me to fearlessly pursue my dreams.

My journey as a wedding photographer began about 7 years ago. I never imagined being in my early 20s and owning my own BUSINESS!!! After being in the photography industry for several years, I’ve learned that my love for photographing weddings and senior portraits grew exponentially and this is now what I am honored to call my job. It’s something I love to the point that I become overwhelmed with happiness, joy, and peace.

Thank you again for stopping by and I hope you’ll stay and look through some galleries and maybe we can talk about booking YOUR date on the calendar really soon!
