About Heidi Borgia Photography
Congratulations on your engagement! Such an exciting time in your lives. Appreciate you taking the time to find out a little bit more about me and my photography.
In a nutshell, I love wedding photography. I've been shooting weddings on the Monterey Peninsula (to include Monterey, Carmel, Carmel Valley, Pebble Beach, Pacific Grove and Big Sur) since 2007.
Shooting style? Candid and posed both.
What are my favorite parts of a wedding? That candid moment when the groom first see's his bride walking down the aisle (love!), first looks, the moment RIGHT before officiant announces them as "Mr and Mrs", the moment when the couple recesses down the aisle and walks a few feet out and has a special private moment to themselves... I even have galleries that I've put together on my Wedding Wire site to showcase this.
I've shot at over 70 locations on the Monterey Peninsula to include;
Pebble Beach Resorts - The Lodge and Pebble Beach, Spanish Bay, Beach and Tennis Club, Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa, InterContinental - The Clement, Hyatt Highlands Inn, Mission Ranch, Nicklaus Country Club, Carmel Valley Ranch, Quail Lodge, Monterey Peninsula Country Club, Gardener Ranch, La Playa Hotel, Cypress Inn, Happy Landing Inn, Pine Inn, Bernardus Lodge, Perry House, Gatherings, Stillwater Cove, Carmel Beach, Asilomar Beach, Berwick Park, Lover's Point Park, Old Whaling Station, Wedding Rock, Castle Rock, Hidden Beach, Monastery Beach, Ribera Beach, Pfeiffer Beach, Garrapata Beach, Big Sur Lodge, Wayfarer Church, Monterey Museum of Art, Monterey Tides, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Martine Inn, White Hart Tea House, Rocky Point, Point Lobos, Il Fornaio Restaurant, Grasings Restaurant, Tarpy's Restaurant, Tickle Pink Inn, Los Laureles Lodge, Martine Inn, Old Monterey Inn, Frog Pond, San Carlos Park and Beach, Robert's Beach, Asilomar Gazebo, Asilomar Lodge, Fanshell Beach, Seal Rock, Point, and more...
Side note - I'm also locally based here on the Monterey Peninsula since 1994, so I know all of the side streets, "ins and outs", hotels, locations..... even if you don't hire me, please please consider hiring a local photographer.
In my downtime, I love to spend time with my family - my husband Brian and our twin 15 year old daughters Brooke and Olivia and our German Shepherd foster dog Max. Other loves: Spotify, Netflix, Reading, Hiking, Movies...
My husband Brian and and I also own a wedding planning business called "Weddings In Monterey" - you can find us on Wedding Wire. When chatting with him about what I should say in this "about me" section told me to mention that I'm one of those people that is super friendly and gets along with everyone. He also said that I "keep things moving" during a wedding, which is super important. He said you "don't want a photographer that fiddles with their equipment or is slow in the photo process of shooting". There is honestly no lag time when I'm working. I'm always shooting something during our time together.
I also respond in a timely/quickly manner to emails and texts. Although, if I am on a shoot - I will email you back and let you know that I'll get back to you later that night or the next day. I can chat 7 days a week with you.
I love to do volunteer photography work for women's and children's issues for our local community. I'm a proud supporter of CASA of Monterey County. AIM for youth mental health, Monterey Museum of Art, Rancho Cielo and the National Charity League and of course my two girl's high schools.
