Hello! My name is Heather and I am so happy you stopped by! This blog is a place where I will share love stories of amazing couples who I had the honor of photographing. It is a place where I can express my passion with images where my words fall short. Photography has changed my life drastically and I am so thankful that God has blessed me with this gift. I wish I could say the same thing about my singing voice, but what can you do?!
I know it sounds silly to say, but I feel like I just met a HUGE goal in my photography journey! Â It doesn’t feel like it is really me, Heather, the girl who didn’t have a clue a year and a half ago what God’s plan for her was…that is, until I bought my first DSLR. Â It all came together for me at that point…an Ah Ha Moment and I knew exactly what I was supposed to do! Â Although I get mentally overwhelmed (last night) from the huge amount of pressure I put on myself, (This twig legged girl is so competitive…you should see me play ping pong!) or whether it be talking with a client for the first time or preparing for a wedding…Capturing love and sharing my images is the most fulfilling thing I have ever done.
So here I am today, One year and 4 months to the day after I bought my first Canon 7D with over 50 shoots and 12 weddings under my belt and it seems like just yesterday I told Matt that I wanted to buy a Professional camera cuz I wanted to make sure I had the best gear just in case I became obsessed! Â A week later I scheduled my first shoot…Obsession hit a lot quicker than we all expected 🙂
It has been a crazy journey filled with anxiety, tears, and mostly joy…and I am addicted. Â Mostly addicted to the happiness that my images bring people, cuz in turn, it makes me feel so good. Â So today when Janay and Rory’s “All You Can Etsy” Wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty and The Etsy Blog I realized that although I mentally wear myself out with sleepless nights mapping out my goals, or nervousness about an upcoming wedding or phone call, it’s because I CARE so much and want to be GREAT…not good enough.
