Hey there! I'm all about making that personal connection with my clients, so I thought I'd start off by telling you a little about my family and me! I'm originally from the Bay Area, born and raised in Sunnyvale, CA. I may one day move to Bali, it's a dream I hope to make a reality soon.
At the tender age of 15, I started my photography journey shooting with medium format film, photographed my first wedding at 17, and eventually took the plunge into the digital world back when you couldn't get more than a 5-megapixel camera. Now I proudly shoot with a full-frame Nikon D810. The rest they say ... is history!
I have been a Temecula Wedding Photographer for several years now, and I absolutely love working and living in such a remarkable community. I'm a member of several local wineries and enjoy treating my clients to an afternoon of wine tasting after their engagement sessions, or indeed any time they are in town.
I'm a single mama to an extraordinary teenage daughter, who has an obsession with books (there could be worse things for her to obsess about!). I've got two small pups, Lily and Charlie, who I lovingly refer to as "Little" and "Stinks."
I enjoy all things photography, marketing, and social media related. I love helping to teach the industry and other entrepreneurs through online webinars, workshops, guest blogging, and hosting stylized shoots across the United States.
Heather made us feel comfortable and relaxed (photos can be stressful, for sure). She fulfilled our every request on where/what to shoot and in the end, we had more amazing wedding photos than we could have ever thought possible.
The pictures are beyond beautiful and our family and friends are still raving over them 7 months after the wedding. High quality photography was at the top of my wedding wish list and my expectations were exceeded.
As a wedding photographer for many years, I believe in capturing the true essence of your wedding day, to do so correctly, you'll need a full day of photography coverage. We are here to capture your entire wedding day story so that you and your fiance won't have to worry about any of the details and moments being missed. Plus, I want you both to have the peace of mind of knowing you are in good hands that will result in you experiencing the true freedom to enjoy your special day.
Consistency is key, as is a team that jives creatively together. That's why the team on your wedding day, will consist of; Karissa (2nd photographer), Madison (Photography Assistant) and myself Heather (Lead Photographer). While I focus on capturing every laugh, giggle, and the cute moments that you and your fiance share between each other during your wedding day, Karissa will focus on wedding day details as well as candid images. Madison will be there to make sure that everything is running smoothly with the day and to help with gear. We will also capture behind the scenes footage that we will share on social media and tag you in (only if you want us to!)
So get those SnapChat wedding day filters ready!
Just as every couple is unique, so are the fantastic memories that you'll want to be photographed. I highly recommend an in-person or video conference consultation, which is no cost to you. We will meet and discuss your vision, goals, and your overall desires for your wedding day.
