We hired Heather to photograph our 8/9/19 wedding. She is absolutely amazing! We knew she was going to be our photographer from the first time we met her. She is so friendly, and was open to a lot of different things! She shot our engagement photos, which turned out amazing! We couldn't believe how many photos she was able to get in the 1 hour time frame! We chose her 10 hour package which included 2 photographer the day of the wedding. She always answered our emails promptly and made sure we went over everything the week before the wedding. She didnt even bat an eye when we added a few family shots 2 days before the wedding!Sent on 09/15/2019
The day of the wedding, we had Heather and her husband Brian. Heather started with the girls and Brian with the guys. They both arrived promptly at 12pm to start. They got amazing photos of all the girls and guys and kept us on track for our first look. Due to the weather being very windy, we changed the first look location last minute to a closer park. Heather and Brian kept in communication throughout the day, and the first look went off without a hitch! Heather even drove myself and my bridesmaids to the location!!! So amazing! They made sure we got all of the requested shots we wanted, and were amazing at coming up with fun shots! They even caught moments we didnt even realize were happening! They have an amazing knack at getting spontaneous shots! They kept us on track for the rest of the day as well.
We love all of the photos, and are so happy with everything!

We cannot recommend Heather enough, she was amazing to work with from start to finish and made the process easy and painless. She brought one of her staff members with her, one for the bride and bride's maids and one for the groom and groomsmen. During the actual wedding they were both prompt and well prepared for the day and were professionals from start to finish.
She was always upbeat but also realistic with the expectations she was setting and also helped us with planning out the day with regard to the flow. What I loved whats how you could could tell that both her and Brian really enjoyed their work and just had a visible passion for it. This passion really came out in the final product
The photos were utterly amazing, they captured all the moments we were hoping for and then some! The photos really captured the emotion of the day and when we were looking at them it was like we were there again. If you're debating about reaching out to Heather, don't just do it, it will be one of the best decisions you will make for your wedding!Sent on 01/02/2019

I cannot say enough about our experience with Heather Bellini Photography. I am so happy that we chose Heather and Brian, we could not have asked for a better fit for us. We LOVE our engagement and wedding photos, they did amazing work.Sent on 10/06/2018
A few highlights of our experience:
-Excellent communication/execution: we met with Heather prior to our wedding and gave her our vision for our wedding day photos. I was really honest with Heather regarding likes and dislikes, which she was very open to hearing. Not only did Heather listen, she also executed perfectly! We received the types of pictures that we wanted, and did not take the ones that we were not interested in.
-Ability to work in any situation: Brian was awesome to have as one as our photographers, as many of our groomsmen have not been in weddings previously and were difficult to wrangle in. Brian was great in handling the various personalities, keeping their schedule, and getting the shots that we wanted. Another example of their flexibility was when the bridesmaid dress colors did not match (long story!). Heather was great in giving directions to the bridesmaids for the photos so that we could make the most of the situation. Heather did this without adding ANY additional stress to me, which I am truly grateful for.
Preparedness: While getting ready, Heather told us (and later showed us) that she carries a bag of miscellaneous odds and ends with her for any last minute wedding needs. To me, this shows that your event is really important to her. It’s not just about the pictures (which end up being beautiful). It’s about making sure you have everything that you need on one of the best days of your life. It is truly going beyond the call of duty and providing the kind of customer service that you expect and deserve.
-Overall, I cannot say enough about our experience with Heather Bellini Photography. I highly recommend them and I know that I will be their customer in the future!
Heather Bellini Photography, LLC's reply:Thank you for all your kind words! We truly enjoyed being part of your wedding day and loved getting to know you both :) I hope to have the opportunity to work with you again in the future! Xoxo

Cassidy · Married on 06/02/2018
My husband and I booked Heather Bellini Photography to do both our engagement and wedding photos- we could not be happier with our decision as they really knocked it out of the park! Heather and her team were fantastic to work with from the start- she was quick to respond, flexible, willing to do photos with our puppy (she was very patient while trying to get our pup to cooperate) and made the entire process so seamless prior to the wedding. On our wedding day Heather and Alicia were our photographers, and they did nothing short of an amazing job- they were progressional, efficient at wrangling our families in post ceremony for family formal photos (and we have BIG families), captured every important moment and then some, and most importantly made taking all of the formal photos a fun and enjoyable experience (our wedding party had nothing but good things to say about our time spent taking pictures). We are thrilled with how our photos turned out- they really capture the vibe of our day and look so stunning and natural! These photos are something we will look back on in the years to come and thanks to Heather and her team we will be able to so easily reminisce on all the wonderful moments of that day. I would highly recommend Heather Bellini Photography to others, you will certainly not regret booking her!Sent on 07/17/2018
Heather Bellini Photography, LLC's reply:Thank you Cassidy & Albert! We had so much fun at your wedding and loved everything about the day! You were both so easy to work with and I hope to have the opportunity to capture many more memories for you :)
Amanda · Married on 11/04/2017
My husband and I booked Heather and Brian for October 21, 2017. When we met with Heather she was exactly what we were looking for. She was very responsive and gave us great advice in regards to wedding planning and tips throughout the process. Heather did our engagement photo session as well. My husband and I had to change our wedding date due to our venue canceling and Heather was over the top accommodating. On top of planning and organizing their OWN wedding, Heather and Brian made sure our wedding day photos were perfect. They left the very next day after our wedding to their destination wedding. That speaks volumes of their commitment and dedication to their work. Heather and Brian went above and beyond to verify we had all of our photo expectations met. My husband and I experienced many hiccups within the wedding planning process and Heather was flexible and professional. Both our families and friends made it a point to tell us how wonderful our photographers were. We can't thank Heather and Brian enough for their time and effort they put into our special day. The photos are truly outstanding and they both captured the perfect moments of our day. Thank you Heather and Brian from the bottom of our hearts for the most AMAZING photographs and for being not just our photographers but our friends. Thank you for taking part in our wedding day and making November 4, 2017 so special!
Congratulations to you both Heather and Brian and best wishes to a beautiful healthy lifetime of happiness together.Sent on 01/08/2018

Chelsea · Married on 09/09/2017
We used Heather Bellini Photography for both our engagement session and wedding after she photographed a wedding I was in last year. Heather is amazing and makes you feel super comfortable being in front of the camera. She is also very good at organizing everyone to get the right shot! I would recommend her hands down for any of your photography needs!Sent on 09/17/2017

Jordan · Married on 07/23/2016
Heather was great from the start. We did our engagement session with her and couldn't believe how well our photos turned out. Knowing that she was going to capture our wedding day made us even more excited! Heather was always so accommodating and quick to reply with any questions I had during the planning process. Heather posted some amazing pictures a few days after the wedding that made the next few weeks so hard waiting for more! After seeing all the photos, we cannot stop looking at them! They are so great and really captured our day. Already, looking at the photos bring back so many great memories. Heather and her assistant, Brian were so fun and easy to work with! And it shows how great the two of them are.Sent on 10/19/2016

Heather did an amazing job capturing our wedding day! From our engagement shoot to our wedding day, she was very professional and flexible! Her photography style was exactly what we were looking for. Heather and her assistant, Brian, were so helpful throughout the day. She helped us set a timeline to ensure our day flowed perfectly! They made sure that our family photos after the wedding were done efficiently and in a timely manner. During the reception, they were able to snap so many awesome candid shots. Our wedding had about 200 guests, and they managed to capture just about every one of them, as well as all of our major moments of the night. Her quality of work and effort put into our wedding was evident in our amazing wedding photos! We would highly recommend Heather to anyone planning their wedding! We've already contacted her to capture our next upcoming life adventure- maternity photos! :)Sent on 04/04/2016

I'm just going to say this...when you have your guests approach you during your wedding day, and later perfect strangers who see the results of Heather's work, and say "oh my God, who is the photographer?" , you know you've got a good thing going. Not only was Heather an amazing person to work with, but she and Brian had fun, understood what we wanted and everyone had a blast working together. The men in our bridal party, normally not ones to pick-up on nuances of things, made a point of saying several times throughout the night what a great time they were having with Heather and Brian. From start to finish, Heather was organized and so flexible. She and Brian work flawlessly as a team and kept us to our timeline while grabbing all the shots we requested. She really listens and really, really wants to make you feel comfortable with such a crazy day. I can't say enough, but I can say we can't wait to see our entire album. The sneak peeks are incredible and for those four pictures alone, we feel like we got our money's worth. Thank you Heather & Brian for being the dynamic, super-talented, incredible duo you are! We are so grateful that you captured our day. I can't express our appreciation enough.Sent on 12/11/2015
Heather Bellini Photography, LLC's reply:Thank you so much for the kind words :) We were incredibly happy that you asked us to be your wedding photographers and wish you nothing but love and happiness!

Heather is a wonderful photographer. I have used her for heads shots for my daughter. ( she has won several- National photogenic awards). Heather also took amazing pictures for my state pageants. She is professional, and really works hard to get the perfect photo. I would recommend Heather for all your photo needs.

Heather was amazing. From our engagement shoot through our wedding day she was courteous, professional, timely, and artistic. She made taking photos so easy for a newbie like me and my now-husband. She and her assistant took so many shots of all our important events. From getting ready photos to cake cutting to our first dance, they got them all. I can't wait to get the final proofs back!Sent on 10/12/2015

Heather was so wonderful to work with - our pictures were so beautiful and well done. Great unique set-ups that turned out better than expected. It was a great value for the money! She was very flexible and worked within my budget, was open to my ideas and fulfilled every request for photos that we had. I can't stop looking at the photos and every time I do it makes me smile and takes me back to the wonderful wedding that we had. We got 2 photographers so that not a single moment was missed, we received a free 16x20 canvas and a print credit to print high quality photos from her website. We would love to work with Heather again in the future and would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a photographer.Sent on 11/29/2015

Melissa · Married on 09/04/2015
Heather and her assistant Alicia were so instrumental in how smooth our wedding went! There were specific aspects that we wanted (and did NOT want) and Heather was more than accommodating! My husband has a daughter that played a big part in our wedding - Heather was absolutely wonderful with her and making her feel comfortable! When our florist was MIA before our ceremony (we couldn't find the boutonnieres and bouquets!!), Heather and Alicia were quick to help and even pinned the boutonnieres on all of the guys! They helped to calm me throughout the chaos! I would recommend Heather to any bride! She is professional, responsive (which is so hard to find!), enthusiastic and so easy to work with! We've used Heather for family pictures/Christmas cards as well and will continue to in the future. We have found our forever family photographer!Sent on 09/17/2015

I had Amber and Brian shoot my wedding a few weeks ago, and it was a wonderful experience. They were very professional and friendly and really put me and the rest of the wedding party at ease. Additionally, they agreed to start working an hour earlier than originally planned at agreed during the reception to stay an hour late as well. I also dealt with Heather over the phone and found her service to be excellent as well. She helped me plan a great timeline for my wedding day. I would highly recommend all three of these photographers.Sent on 08/17/2015

Julie · Married on 08/08/2015
I used Heather Bellini photography for both my engagement photos and our wedding photos! I had seen her work previously and really appreciated her style. I knew many people that had used her for other occasions like maternity or newborn photos, so from the beginning I knew i had to have her as our photographer! The engagement pictures were great, we loved them and it wasn't easy with Buffalo weather not cooperating in Mid October but we found a beautiful day and changed the location and it all worked out thanks to her flexibility! She even came with props in case we didn't have any! She had plenty of ideas because we didn't know what to do or how to pose so her experience definitely came in handy! Wedding day she walked in ready to do business wasting no time again with great ideas for pics of the dress and getting ready etc. She even encouraged me to look up ideas for what I wanted to do and made sure to make it happen the day of! One less thing for me to remember which was nice! The whole wedding party had a great time with her and her assistant Alicia, we are so anxious to see the wedding photos! They were very personable and made the business side of it all a blur! We all had so much fun! Thank you Heather and Alicia for your commitment, talent, and hard work! It is so appreciated !!!!!Sent on 08/24/2015

I found Heather and everyone she worked with to be very professional. I was very happy with the responsiveness to any questions/requests that I had. Heather was always available and I never had a problem communicating my wants and needs- from our engagement session right through to when we received out pictures and wedding album. The pictures turned out beautiful and she was not only able to capture the pictures that I had requested but had great ideas for getting the perfect shot! I would recommend her to anyone!!

Heather and Amber did an incredible job at our wedding on July 18th, 2015! Right from the start, our engagement pictures turned out absolutely beautiful and were exactly what we wanted. Heather was very helpful and quick to respond when we had questions, and when we were deciding on certain pictures we wanted, day of timing, and the pros to doing a "first look". On our wedding day- Heather and Amber were on time, and ready to work! (Even in 90 degree weather with 100% humidity). That did not stop them from capturing the most beautiful moments on the best day of our lives! We love the style of the photos and couldn't have asked for anything more. We would highly recommend Heather Bellini Photography to any friend or family member! You won't be disappointed! Thank you so much for everything!! :)Sent on 08/21/2015

Lindsay · Married on 06/26/2015
I had to give Heather and her assistant Brian 5 stars across the board! Heather was fabulous to work with, from the day we signed the contract to the day we received the final pictures. Heather is very professional, but keeps things fun at the same time; can tell she really loves what she does. She answered my many questions very quickly and never left us wondering. Reasonably priced for what wedding photography is going for these days. On the day of the wedding, she was on time, and got right to work - knew exactly what she was wanted to do and made sure we didn't miss anything. Many guests at our wedding commented "did you have photographers at the reception?"...because no one saw them, but they were there catching every important moment!! They really caught everything, and were very patient when we wanted pictures of very large groups of 30+ people... They made it work! The final pictures were STUNNING! Couldn't be happier with them! I had a family member comment "those are probably the best wedding pictures Ive ever seen", and its all thanks to Heather and Brian! I HIGHLY recommend Heather and her team, not just for weddings, but for any and all events/portraits! Thanks so much you two!!!!Sent on 08/12/2015
