Perfection 馃グ

Oh my gosh. I cannot explain how absolutely amazing Heather is to work with! I won an engagement session with her from a bridal expo and that鈥檚 where our story began. She is polite, kind, caring, and just an amazing woman! She made my now husband and I so comfortable as we were doing our shoot and positioned us and guided us the entire time. We have found our lifelong photographer- for sure. Her work speaks for itself- Woah baby!!

Top notch photography!

Experience, personability, and time management. These are a few words that only begin to describe the level of professionalism that Heather Hughes Photography showed during our engagement and wedding. Heather and her team were so easy to work with and did such an amazing job throughout our entire wedding. They captured every single moment of our special day without ever interrupting the celebration. We absolutely loved working with Heather鈥檚 team and would not hesitate to work with her again or recommend her to anyone for any special occasion. Heather went above and beyond every step of the way to make us feel special and celebrated, and we absolutely love all of our photos!

Heather is awesome!

Heather has been great to work with from start to finish. She was able to work through some interesting factors that influenced us during our engagement photos (a Nor'easter) and then our wedding (Covid) and she was great through it all, making it all work with a smile! The photos she took were great, she captures not only the portraits, but real life moments that are candid and perfect to remember. You can tell she loves capturing these moments for her clients, and she was able to make the whole wedding party at ease during the wedding day, which can be hard given the emotional rollercoaster everyone is going through. She also offers Save the date cards which we took advantage of, some great thank you cards, which we are also taking advantage of, and some beautiful album choices which can make it hard to decide how you want your pictures presented. We would highly recommend Heather, you won't regret it, and any time you meet with her she will put a smile on your face.
