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!

I am so excited to share a Willow Heights Mansion wedding again! This place is such a gem! It’s got glam, vineyards, open fields, and rolling hills! It is a dream to shoot weddings here especially when I get to document a gorgeous and fun-loving couple like Ellie and Anthony! They have this high-school-sweet-heart kinda love that is fun to just sit back and capture. What is really cool about their relationship is that they each have 2 beautiful daughters in their twenties! It was fun photographing an all female bridal party! Thanks for letting me be a part of your perfect day!

Where do I even start with how awesome these two are!  Well, I guess I could start with the fact that they are my family!  Big time score for me 🙂  Sam & Davey live in one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been too!  It is full of so much natural beauty and provides enough outdoor recreation for even the most active of people year round!  In fact, I believe more Olympic skiers come out of this town than anywhere else in America.  I was completely honored and beyond excited when they asked me to do these photos for them.  Steamboat Springs, Co is also a place where some of my most favorite people and family live, including my two adorable nephews who I love soooooo much!  In fact, this shoot was perfect timing for us to visit our brand new nephew of just 3 weeks old!  It was an awesome trip filled with great family memories, gorgeous hikes, and this beyond adorable couple.  Sam & Davey are complete naturals in front of the camera, which is most likely due to their love for each other bursting at the seams of each image…and their ridiculous good looks of course 🙂 They are beautiful inside and out and I am so lucky to call them family!  I cannot wait for their wedding in Da Boat next year!

Krystle & Andrew {Engaged!!} Santa Cruz Harbor Engagement Session

It was ‘dis-like’ at first sight.  The scene: History Class Sophomore year in high school.  She thought he a water polo playing dork who drank too much chlorine, and her know-it-all loud mouth personality was enough to drive him crazy.  Fast forward to Senior year.  As Andrew matured, so did his feelings for Krystle.

It was ‘dis-like’ at first sight.  The scene: History Class Sophomore year in high school.  She thought he a water polo playing dork who drank too much chlorine, and her know-it-all loud mouth personality was enough to drive him crazy.  Fast forward to Senior year.  As Andrew matured, so did his feelings for Krystle. He no longer saw her the way he once did and wanted to ask her out on a date.  However, he let her know that he didn’t want anything serious.  She took that as a challenge and simply replied, “We will see about that!” In true fashion, Krystle was right and they were inseparable from then on.  In college, they took a 2 year break, but always knew they were meant for each other and would some day get back together.  Finally that day came. Her phone rang and it was him.  Andrew was joining the military and wanted to know if she would get back together with him. Without any hesitation she dropped everything and flew to be with him in Texas where he was stationed.  Now 13 years later these two are getting married and couldn’t be happier!  Someone needs to send this love story to Nicholas Sparks and get this puppy into production!

We had so much fun at the Santa Cruz Harbor!  This spot is special to them as it is not far from where they often hung out together back in high school. I always love beach shoots, and love them even more when the couple actually takes me up on the offer to run in the ocean!  It hadn’t been two seconds after I suggested playing in the ocean that Andrew rolled up his jeans and ran IN.  He wasn’t lying when he said he can’t be near water without going in.  It was so much fun to see them right at home with each other and their surroundings.  These two are so clearly made for each other and I am honored to be their wedding photographer!

Sometimes you meet people and just know right away that they are incredibly special.  I feel so very grateful to have met them and become friends with them and I know their many friends who were their to support them feel the same way!  They are simply beautiful from the inside out.  I am so honored to have been their photographer.  They were married at the beautiful St. Vincent School for Boys.  The grounds are breathtaking from the cathedral to the Italian inspired courtyard.  It must have been something special for Forrest’s parent’s to walk down this aisle again toward their son as they too were married here years ago.  The ceremony was perfect.  The priest was hilarious and the guests were loving it!  The celebration was perfect and I am so incredibly excited to share this wedding with you!
