I’m so excited for you! Seriously, SO HAPPY!!! I know that feeling all too well, and it’s only the beginning! I can't WAIT to hear more about your story and every little detail in between. To me, CONNECTION matters! The magic comes from our vibe with each other, not my camera skills! If you're looking for someone who actually takes the time to get to know you, I am your GIRL! Now, starts the carefully planned planning, and if I have one HUGE piece of advice that I can give you, is that you CONNECT with your wedding photographer. If you’re on my website right now and you’re still reading this, then I think we may already be a perfect fit.

Behind the scenes

Heather was the best possible addition to our vendor team, and she added so much joy to our big day!! Right from the first phone call, I knew we would be a great fit and that she would capture everything that was important to us at the wedding. Heather is so organized and helpful, and she was willing to work with us on every aspect of our engagement and wedding photos to get us the perfect experience. Our photos turned out more amazing than we could have dreamed, and we feel like we gained a friend in the process! Couldn’t recommend Heather highly enough and so thankful to have found her.

Heather did our engagement shoot and wedding and we are so grateful we found her! She’s not only an insanely talented photographer but a wonderful person who made the entire experience so much fun. She coached us through our engagement sessions and loved on our puppy Luna and went above and beyond to make our vision come to life. On our wedding day she was so much fun but also kept us all relaxed and calm even as things got hectic. We had so many guests comment on how incredible our photos turned out and my bridesmaids all mentioned how wonderful Heather was - she was just another part of our girl gang that morning :) In addition to her photography Heather cares deeply about her couples - when our dog was hurt a few months after the wedding we got a surprise Barkbox in the mail from Heather - which just goes to show that with Heather you not only get a photographer but a friend. If you want bright beautiful photography Heather is your gal - we look back at our photos and are still amazed at how perfectly she captured our day. Thank you Heather for everything - we only wish we could do it all again with you.

There are truly no words to explain how AMAZING Heather is! Heather photographed our engagement photoshoot in May of 2021 and our wedding in April of 2022. She is an incredibly talented photographer and is the most down to earth, genuine, and fun person. From the very start, Heather took the time to get to know us as a couple and make the photography experience stress-free and enjoyable. She made us feel so comfortable and was flexible with scheduling. She takes absolutely stunning photos and was extremely helpful with ideas for posing, details, etc. She literally brings the party to your wedding and all of your guests will love her! I will truly cherish our photos and our friendship with Heather forever. I cannot recommend her enough! BOOK HER NOW!!!!

Heather is AMAZING. If you're like me and you read 100 reviews before deciding to choose a vendor, just go ahead and book her already! From day 1 Heather seemed like a best friend that we knew for years. She really takes the time to get to know you as a person and as a couple. Our engagement and wedding photos were so perfect. I've always disliked the way I look in most photos but out of the 1,000+ photos we got back, I love literally all of them!! This girl works magic and is the sweetest human being ever. I'm pretty sure she was a golden retriever in her past life. You will not regret booking this gal and your wedding photos will be incredible, to the point where I still gush over them daily

We talked to a number of photographers whose photos were great, but we just didn't have a connection with them. When we got on the phone with Heather for the first time, we knew she was our girl. We also chose her because she had shot at our venue before, and she did. not. disappoint! Heather is the most optimistic and bubbly person, with an eye and passion for all things detail not just during photos but through the whole process. She is incredibly thoughtful and through the pandemic she checked in with us to just ask how we were doing - that personal touch really validated our decision. Included in Heather's package is an engagement shoot, which was great because we got to meet with her and get to know her before our actual wedding day, which made the wedding day so much less stressful. We opted for Heather +1 - her second shooter and assistant were so great and brought a similar energy which was helpful. All of those things wrapped into one meant our day was enjoyable and photos were fun and natural (which, let's be honest, getting formal photos taken is a bit daunting if you haven't had it done a ton of times). My family also LOVED her and her team, which means the world to me. We love Heather and cannot wait to have her do family photos for us one day. Book Heather, you will not be disappointed!!

Heather Chipps is the best decision we ever made throughout our whole wedding planning process. She is TRULY amazing on the inside and the outside! We met her through a Skype conversation/interview/meeting and immediately knew she was the one for us. She's bubbly, friendly, smiley and she makes you feel like you've known her forever. She made us SO excited for our big day for the entire year that we worked with her. She is absolutely incredible. She is quick to respond, is super organized, and her photos are absolutely insanely gorgeous. She made us feel SO comfortable every time we were in front of the camera, including our engagement photos and our wedding day. Not only did she capture both our engagement session and our wedding day better than we could have ever imagined, but we also gained a really good friend throughout the whole process. We absolutely love Heather. Heather, thank you, thank you, thank you for being you, an amazing person, an incredibly talented photographer, and an even better person!!

Oh my god, where to even start. Heather is next level incredible. She's easy to talk to, she's creative, she's personable, and goodness is she TALENTED. Seriously our wedding photos look straight out of Southern Living. From the get-go she was easy to talk to and plan photo sessions with. She is realistic about timelines and is great at explaining why some timelines might work better depending on your event. She genuinely tries to get to know you throughout the whole process to gauge what you want and need out of your wedding photos.There was a moment during the reception when I was talking to my mom and the wedding coordinator, and Heather came over to check in on me to make sure everything was going well. She was actively involved in wanting to make sure she was helping or making things easier for me on the day-of. I can't say enough about how wonderful she is. She made wedding planning easier and our wedding photos are seriously incredible. I honestly feel like I'm coming out of our wedding with not only a husband, but also a new friend in Heather.

If you are looking for a wedding photographer, stop looking now. You have found the absolute best in the business in Heather Chipps Photography. True story: We based our wedding date on her availability. We were engaged in mid-March, and besides our immediate family, she was the first to know as I reached out to find out what remaining dates she had for later that same year. I knew without a doubt that I wanted her to photograph our wedding. We also booked her to do our engagement session and my bridal portraits. Heather was amazing to work with throughout the entire process. She was quick to respond, informative, FUN, easy-going, and the turnaround on her work is simply impressive. We could not be any happier with all of the memories that she captured. I am truly sad to think that she won’t be photographing us anymore.
