After 'I Do'

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?!

Welcome!

Meet my gorgeous friends Tara and Zack! I first met them a few years ago when they asked me to do their engagement photos.  We had a blast shooting in North Beach and at a nearby beach. We became fast friends so I was super bummed when I was already booked for their wedding.  Now they are expecting a baby boy in 5 weeks! I was THRILLED to hang out with them again at their maternity shoot.  We started the session at their condo in SF which was great since we could do more of a lifestyle type shoot.  Their dog Boomer was a huge fan of of the camera…or maybe just smelled Birdie on me :). Either way, I was a fan of him too!  We then hit up Chrissy Field Beach which turned out to be AMAZING!  The weather, the light, the couple…it all was perfection!  They are like two maternity models and I’m convinced Tara was born to be pregnant!  Doesn’t she look FABULOUS!?  I am so excited to meet their little man coming soon!

We finally had a day of no rain and I couldn’t be more thrilled to spend it shooting at the beautiful beach by the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay!  Ellie & Tony are a perfect match!  They both love the beach especially the one in Carmel where they got engaged! Ellie braved the cold in her dress and I am so glad she did cuz she looked amazing in it!  There may have been lots of running on the beach just to stay warm 😉  They are such a sweet couple and I am so excited for their wedding this spring!

What an amazing couple to kick off my 1st engagement shoot of 2019 with!  Ali & Fernando share a common love for kids…and not just any aged kid, but that age range with the endearing nicknames of Terrible Twos and Three-nagers.  I should know, I have one of my own 🙂 J/k…I actually wish I could freeze this age!  Anyhoo, they met while working at the same preschool!  There is nothing more attractive than seeing your main squeeze play with kids!

This duo live in Petaluma, but Ali’s grandparents live on a magical property in Santa Rosa offering pretty much every backdrop a photographer could ask for.  So of course we had to do the session there!  We had so much fun exploring the wooded area as well as the Italian inspired grounds.  I was boiling over with inspiration!  I may have to convince her grandparents to turn it into a wedding venue 😉 BUT even more amazing is that they are getting married at my favorite wedding venue, Vintner’s Inn!  Can’t wait to see these two again this fall!

Oh hey there Danielle…
I am so lucky to have this amazing talent join the team!  She is simply amazing and has a true passion for capturing love!

What is an Associate Photographer and why use one?

An associate photographer is someone who works under my brand who I have trained and invested time into so that they can represent Heather Scharf Photography in every sense of the word.  Basically, Danielle is someone I trust my life and your most important day!  Although the associate photography pricing is lower, you are still getting the same quality of work, same aesthetic, and same overall experience as if you were working with me.  I do all pre-wedding consulting and preparation as well as the engagement and wedding photo editing so that all your images are processed to perfection and reflect the Heather Scharf Photography signature look!

A little more about Danielle:
She is hilarious, professional, and so very talented!  I felt an instant connection with her from day one and I know you will too!  She began her career in 2006 and returned to school to get her BA degree in Photography in 2013.  She has always loved taking pictures, but she knew it was going to be a passion after her own Senior Portrait session in high school!  If only I had figured out my career in high school! haha!  Not only did she fall in love with photographing weddings, but telling a couple’s love story through her images is what really spoke to her.  She truly is a natural with documenting a wedding day as she has been published TWICE in the Real Weddings Magazine!  TWICE people! haha!
For more informFor more information about using one of my associate photographers and seeing a sample of their work, please inquire through my Contact page.
Packages start at $3,000.
