Capturing light filled, joyful, genuine moments!
I am a full time photographer & graphic designer, based in Charlottesville Virginia. I have traveled all around the East Coast photographing Weddings, Couples, Families. and quite a few rescue dogs! I began this crazy creative journey over 10 years ago, and have embraced each new adventure!
I love being able to capture REAL LIFE, those intimate moments, genuine laughs, and unexpected puppy kisses! My goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible in front of the camera, and that starts with creating a connection and friendship that extends beyond your portrait session!
MOST NIGHTS... you will find me curled up on the couch, in yoga pants, covered in dog fur, snacking on something sweet! I love that my passions allow me to travel anywhere in the world with my laptop and lenses! When I'm not busy building my business, I spend my time, exploring Charlottesville, snowboarding in the mountains, and finding any excuse to have an overly competitive game night.

Heather has been such an amazing person to work with! First of all, and most importantly, she takes beautiful pictures with a light, airy quality to them that I think anyone would love. This is an especially nice style for weddings and engagement photos in my opinion. Second, Heather is so nice and makes you feel very comfortable in front of the camera. She is good at balancing giving you guidance when you need it (in terms of poses, etc.) and letting you do your own natural thing. She is also open to your suggestions, even if they are a bit crazy (we did a photo during our engagement shoot where I was piggybacking on my fiance's back and our dog was balanced on my back). Third, Heather is very professional. She responds quickly to emails and is very straightforward about pricing, what you will get/can expect, etc. She is flexible and willing to work with you. Finally, her pricing is extremely reasonable! For us, the photographer was the number 1 most important thing about our wedding and we would 100% hire Heather again!

Heather made me and my husband feel so comfortable. We had never had a photo shoot before, but Heather was able to make us feel relaxed and the photos turned out amazing! I’m so glad I found Heather to photograph our wedding day.

Heather is Awesome. She was the first vendor we picked for our wedding and we couldn't be happier with our experience with her thus far. Although our Wedding isn't until this coming October, we did meet with Heather last fall for our Engagement shoot. Neither my fiance nor myself were too thrilled with the idea of a photoshoot, but Heather made the experience so easy and comfortable. She is so sweet and easy-going, and our photos turned out great! We are very much looking forward to having her share our big day with us this Fall.
