    OH MY GOSH. Where do I even begin. Heather was our ROCK on our wedding day. First of all, you can tell that she has shot a LOT of weddings. She put together an incredible itinerary and made sure things were moving along all day. I was stressing out (what bride doesn’t lol) and I eventually went outside to finish my makeup. Heather came outside and sat with me. She talked to me and asked me what she needed to do to keep me calm. She was seriously my rock in those moments and was more than a photographer. She was a friend. My husband, Robert, was nothing less than a nervous wreck and Heather calmed him down tremendously. She helped him with his anxiety and helped him to relax a little bit. She was always timely and professional and so much fun to be around. She had great ideas for photos and our whole group had so much fun working with her. She was a LIFESAVER and was worth every penny! Thank you, Heather, for everything. You were a rockstar!

    Heather was my rock on my wedding day! She was able to help provide a timeline for us and was able to help us figure out which pictures we could take before the ceremony to save time afterwards since we did not do a first look before hand. We got lots of great shots and she kept things fun and light the whole day. We used her for our engagement pics also. I haven't received wedding pics yet but if they are like our first set of photos I know they will be fabulous.

    Heather was so wonderful to work with. She was there with us from start to finish. She showed up on time and even helped out whenever she could. She took plenty of pictures and they were all beautiful. We loved them! Our guests loved them! We couldn't have asked for a better photographer.

She is so sweet and easy to work with and makes you feel completely comfortable. She is also very reasonably priced for everything she does! HIGHLY recommend for anyone getting married in AR.

    Heather was fantastic! She did an excellent job coordinating all photo sessions and had great results! She was responsive to concerns I had and to ideas I had. She was easy to work with and stayed longer than I expected to capture all of our moments. She helped keep everyone calm when things went awry. Her prices were incredibly reasonable. I would recommend her to anyone!

    Heather was so nice to work with. She put us at ease and made our engagement and wedding portraits fun and comfortable. So was wonderful during the wedding too! She got us through our group and family pictures with ease. That is and accomplishment with our group. She is very organized, professional and easy to work with.

    Heather was such a huge part of making our big day special. She took our engagement pictures as well as our wedding, and she was there from the moment we started getting ready until we were packing up to leave. She basically just became part of the family! We absolutely love her and will never use another photographer for anything. We just got our pictures yesterday, and I'm still in tears. She does such a wonderful job of capturing the happiness in every single picture! We couldn't have loved her more and highly recommend her for any event!

    Heather was so great to work with! I hope to work with her again in the future. She quickly responded to all my emails and helped me with any concerns I had about the time that the pictures would take. She got all the pictures I wanted and even some I didn't even think of. I received my pictures very quickly after the wedding and we absolutely love them!! Very good quality.

    The lead up to my wedding could have been the most stressful time of my life. However, Heather was not only super understanding that having a toddler means that we most likely wouldn't get all the shots, but she was flexible when my work schedule suddenly doubled and we needed to reschedule one of my shoots. I was terrified that I was going to meet her and end up feeling awkward, but even with my social anxiety, Heather felt like another friend. She genuinely made my wedding photos a breeze, and they came out so amazing! The price was amazing, the pictures were stunning, and Heather was the best. I would hands down recommend her and plan to use her in the future for all of my photo needs.

    Heather was absolutely wonderful to work with! She took the few examples that I had requested and expanded upon them to give me many more pictures than I thought I would be able to get. I would most definitely recommend her to anyone else looking for a wonderful photographer!

    Heather was amazing!! She was willing to be wherever and start at whatever time we needed her to. She was literally with us all day! She was patient and kind with my two year old during this process and helped keep me calm. She got all the shots I wanted plus so much more. She also captured my husband's fun personality and those of his groomsmen in the pictures, as well as truly capturing our love in our photos. I have enough pictures to relive the day, and the mobile app is too cool! She was easy to work with and so much fun. I look at my pictures and I smile, laugh and cry as I remember how perfect my day was. I am so glad she was our wedding photographer and I would recommend her to anyone who is getting married!

    Heather was awesome. She worked so well with all the kids in our wedding party. She took numerous pictures and went to different locations around the lake. She took very beautiful and unique pictures in a location she didn't know very well. Our wedding day went so well and she made it so much better because I knew she was around taking great pictures.

    We are so happy that we chose Life's Etchings to photograph our wedding. Heather was a joy to work with, and her photos are utterly gorgeous. Though our wedding was in Hot Springs, she drove in and arrived early in the morning to begin shooting. She created a very low-pressure environment. I recommend her to everyone!

    Heather Owen's talent is why you choose Life's Etchings to photograph your priceless moments. When we selected Heather as our photographer, we only discovered later that we had selected THE BEST!!!! Heather reviewed the chapel and reception to proactively plan for lighting and to develop her initial shot list (in addition to ours). She is the master of time management and I would not have even known how to cut the cake if she had not been a trusted voice in my head.

    She does more than make the shot look good. She helps to create the event. She became part of thr wedding party. She was always there!!! She captured moments I did not remember, except through her photographs.

    No matter where life takes us, Heather Owen will be there during our most important moments. I would recommend her to anyone and specifically to first time brides. She is not only a photographer, but also a walking wedding guide!!!

    Heather was great to work with! She was very meticulous in getting details on what shots we wanted before the wedding. She was on time and prepared. She professionally helped move things along at a good pace so we could make it on time to our reception. We enjoyed the pictures as well. If you want someone to be professional, great to work with, and timely, I recommend her!

    Heather is a great photographer. She has a great eye and is very knowlegible. All my photos I've gotten from her have been absolutely gorgeous! If you have ideas of poses or a look that you are wanting to achieve she strives her best to give it to you. She is very prompt with her communication with her customers and with the photo turn around. I would definitely recommend her for any type of event, big or small.

    Heather provided a very attentive, professional and high quality service. She was very warm and friendly from the start and made everyone feel at ease while she took pictures. In fact, she was so good at what she was doing that we hardly noticed she was taking so many photos during the ceremony and party until we got the beautiful proofs! I would highly recommend Heather and Life Etchings!

    Heather was wonderful. She was patient and had remembered the types of photos I had shared with her on Pinterest. She was very professional and gave my family the direction they needed to get the photos I wanted. The fact she drove 2 hours to shoot my wedding was a blessing. I will definitely recommend her to anyone in that area looking for a great photographer. She even kept me calm.
