    We are from Pa. and Heidi was wonderful. She responded promptly to all e-mails. The day of the wedding she was great as well as after at providing the pictures. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer. She was very personable.

    At first we weren't even going to hire a professional photographer, we were planning a very simple, but beautiful and meaningful elopement in Carmel Valley. Since we needed a witness, Brian explained his wife could fulfill that role and also mentioned she can provide a basic photography package. Of course, every couple hopes to have beautiful photos of their wedding, we hired Heidi. Although we did not extensively research her, later we discovered she is well known and highly regarded.
    I am writing this review, because I am the type that somehow always has my eyes closed, or a weird smile, and basically not naturally photogenic. I'm even camera shy. You cannot believe the REALLY GORGEOUS photos that Heidi captured, and everyone we shared the wedding link with replied with compliments how stunning (and in love) we both looked.
    We are having a hard time selecting the photos to print, because she has a ton on great shots!
    BTW.....a great thing, she sent a link to the best photos within 72 hours, and since we eloped, we got to forward and share them with all the people that couldn't be there with us. It meant a lot,
    Heidi, thank you so much, You made us feel so comfortable in our most intimate moments, and 100% for sure captured the exact feeling of our wedding day.

    Brian and Heidi did an incredible job with my marriage proposal! Not only did they take some amazing pictures of my fiancé and I but they also set up a beach bonfire and picnic for us. Everything was set up before we arrived and I was beyond amazed how perfect it all looked! I can't thank them enough for everything they did for us. It was very clear to my fiancé and I how passionate they are when it comes to this stuff!

    Heidi Borgia was amazing from our first contact - she was floating down the river in Tahoe, and responding to my email inquiry! She asked if she could get back to us in a few days, and we couldn't be more thrilled that we waited! Heidi was awesome from the moment we met - we knew she was the perfect photographer for our special day. She was extremely flexible, had some great ideas and we were so excited to work with her. The day of our wedding Heidi went above and beyond - she was right on time, took some wonderful before photos and split her time between the girls and guys perfectly. Even with the rain during the ceremony and photos, Heidi went right along with us and did not miss a moment of capturing our wedding day! She was the best sport, her assistants kept her equipment dry, and she was so easy going despite the weather - and we could not have asked for better photos in the rain! Heidi spent a great deal of time in editing and compiling our photos, and video slideshow - we were extremely impressed with the quality and details in each and every single photo. Our slideshow movie was absolutely perfect, and gives us the chance to relive our day every time we watch it! We just loved working with Heidi and are so glad she was part of our special day - we would recommend Heidi time and time again to anyone in the Monterey area, and can't wait to work with her again!

    We were fortunate to find Heidi to be our photographer for our "planned" elopement. We didn't meet her until the day of the ceremony but felt like we had known her for years. She was so easy to work with and made the photo experience painless and fun. She had great ideas for different settings yet she was also very receptive to our ideas and suggestions. We are very happy with the photos we've seen so far and can't wait for the final package.

    At probably no other time in a woman's life is she as hopeful to have photos that she can be proud of and that captures her beauty and emotions than on her wedding day. Entrusting a photographer to fulfill this task is a tremendous one. Heidi delivered in taking breathtaking photos that captured the beauty of the natural surroundings and the happiness my fiancé and I felt on our wedding day. All the while she put me at ease and helped me to feel relaxed and beautiful. Heidi was also so patient and accommodating in fulfilling my requests for certain types of post-wedding photos. I had asked if we could climb up to a particular lookout spot. Heidi happily obliged and climbed over rocks while carrying her heavy equipment. Our hike paid off as Heidi delivered spectacular images! I feel so blessed to have worked with Heidi.

    We hired Heidi to capture our daughters wedding day and our pictures lived up to our expectations and then some. They are wonderful. The slide show she put together of the wedding was so fun to watch and it captured to happiness of the day.
    When hiring a wedding photographer I wanted someone who would be able to take control and take pictures quickly. I have a big family and I didn't want the family group shots to take forever. Heidi was able to get everyone's attention and didn't waste time. We loved her.

    Heidi did a fantastic job on our wedding day. My husband and I eloped in Monterey and had Heidi's husband officiate our wedding. They arrived on time and both worked well together. Heidi truly made us feel comfortable and took the time to make sure she was meeting our needs. She even took a few shots with our phones so we could have some instant gratification! I received my photos in less than 4 weeks and they turned out beautiful. I received many more images than expected and am extremely happy with the results. Heidi did an amazing job capturing our special day and for that I will be forever grateful!

    We enjoyed every minute of Heidi's photography from the planning to the day-of to the prints, book and video afterwards. Very professional and easy to work with. The pictures were stunning and she did a great job of handling my wild family. I do not enjoy being in front of the camera, but she was able to make me feel comfortable and captured lovely and magical images of our special day. I would recommend her with zero hesitation. We also hired her husband, Brian, as our officiant and they made a great team.

    Heidi shot our engagement photos, rehearsal dinner photos, and wedding photos. We couldn't have been more happy with our decision. Not only did Heidi take amazing photos, but she found absolutely amazing places for us to take photos with her extensive knowledge of the Monterrey area. Throughout our wedding night she was never to far and captured every moment that my wife and I could ever want. By the end of the weekend we really felt like Heidi was part of our family, and the wedding was better because she was involved.

    We stumbled upon Brian and Heidi and couldn't be more happy with both of them! We wanted a male minister to marry us and he was so helpful in choosing the location and assisted with flowers. When I inquired about photography and learned his wife was a photographer I booked her...well-her pictures are the most amazing photographs I have ever seen! Somehow she captured the beauty of Big Sur -the colors are amazing!!! And their prices are half of the resorts around...you won't be disappointed with these two!

    Heidi was outstanding! First she put us all at ease with her warmth and calmness. Then, in a very organized manner, she set up the shots. We all had butterflies- and it really helped to have her calm, knowledgeable hand through the pre-wedding, wedding, and photos afterwards. The photos catch the fun, the smiles, the laughter- and the love in our daughter and son-in-law's wedding. I really liked how she blended in family and friends in spontaneous photos. Heidi balanced the backdrop of our venue with the wedding to balance the photo. We'll always remember this day with special warmth through the eyes of her beautiful photography!

    Wow! I simply love our wedding pictures. Heidi is an amazing photographer that knows when to capture the beauty not only from people but nature and pets. We got married at Pebble Beach with our furry Westie children by our side. She was patient, caring and sweet. She is very professional and the quality of her work is superior. I strongly recommend her. Thank you Heidi & Brian!

    Heidi was fantastic to work with for our tiny little wedding. A week or so before the event, she emailed to ask what group shots we REALLY wanted - which was great, because I had didn't even think of it beforehand. Definitely a professional who has done this a lot and knows how to give her clients the most bang for their buck. Without that list, I would have just pointed away randomly and most likely miss several pictures that I wish I had had.
    Heidi did a great job taking pictures during our short ceremony. My husband even asked how many photographers there were, after looking through the pictures she sent us. He thought there were 3 or 4, but I assured him that it was certainly1... maybe 2. She got SO many awesome action shots and looked like she was everywhere at once. It was amazing.
    Post-ceremony, during the group shots, she was organized without being stuffy. Heidi (and her husband and assistant) was so fun to joke around with and really made my entire family feel at ease.
    All in all, it was a wonderful experience. The pictures turned out BEAUTIFULLY, and I can only say that I highly recommend the whole Borgia wedding package. Thanks to them, I feel like I had the most beautiful and intimate wedding imaginable.

    We are so very fortunate to have had Heidi photograph our wedding on May 21st, 2016 at Fanshell Beach on the 17 mile Drive in Monterey! Heidi was a delight to work with and captured our very small ceremony in such a beautiful manner. Heidi is very professional, talented, fun, warm, lighthearted and loving! It is abundantly clear that she loves what she does as her interaction with us and our guests was personal, comfortable and overall delightful. The photographs turned out beautiful! We are extremely satisfied with our experience with Heidi from start to finish! Heidi's husband, Brian Borgia, was also our officiant for our wedding and we could not have asked for a better experience with him either. Brian, too, is extremely warm, professional and caring! He delivered a beautifully personalized written wedding ceremony for us in such a beautiful and thoughtful manner. It was absolutely perfect! Thank you so much Brian & Heidi for making our special day so awesome and memorable!
