This woman is amazing!
Omg, Heather went above and beyond. There were times that she was helping me get this wedding done on time! She arranged for an Edible Arrangement when she found out when I was coming back to the US and she ALWAYS makes a special emergency bridal bag. That bag was the lifeline for the wedding. The photos turned out amazing and she and her Korean speaking partner, as well as their assistant, were there to capture all the important moments and more! I cannot stress enough how helpful Heather was to me; she was like a right-hand woman when my bridesmaids failed me at times!Sent on 11/27/2018
But let's talk photos. The photos are amazing. Heather's photos are charming enough to appeal to everyone; just the right amount of humor, traditional portraits and candid moments that perfectly capture the slightly controlled chaos that was my wedding. Sister-in-law's husband jumping down into a split? Captured in action with no blur. Bouquet toss? Same action shot. Sunset picture? Perfectly color-balanced for a dramatic and romantic shot. Seriously, she's got the talent to make your wedding look like an art exhibit capturing all the various ranges of human emotion.
I can't recommend her enough! Hire her already!

Heather is truly amazing. Her attention to detail, technical expertise, and masterful orchestration are only surpassed by her artistry, compassion, and lovely personality. Even though it was a small, intimate wedding, multiple shoot locations posed a logistical challenge. From initial planning through site previews to the day of the wedding, she covered everything. Over the course of the wedding and photo shoots, Heather smoothly orchestrated bride, groom, guests and even the restaurant staff! A gifted photographer with outstanding people skills, she is a truly exceptional person.Sent on 06/04/2019

I can’t tell you how happy we are with all of your efforts on our behalf. Your photos are just incredibly beautiful but you did so much more. You thought of things we didn’t know we should think of (bobby pins) and captured images of everything. I loved seeing the photo of the sign at the market, Emily and Sofi (the dog), their rings on the pillow I made. You just didn’t miss anything and did it all with such artistry. We are all so impressed.
I will never forget leaving to wash my hands before cutting the cake (assuming nobody else would serve it) and coming back to discover that you'd sent it off with the staff to have them cut it for us. For that and a million other things large and small we can’t thank you enough.
When we started making plans last September I told Emily that the photos were in my estimation the most important thing. I believe I expressed those sentiments to you the first time we talked. Everything else about her wedding day will grow hazy over time but the images captured will always bring those memories to life.
Thank you, thank you, thank you,

She is a true professional as opposed to so many of the hobbyists you will find. Heather is the model of professionalism. Her artistic compositions allow each image to be a stand alone memory captured forever. I highly recommend her.
