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!

It always makes me happy when two of the nicest people ever find each other and fall in love.  Sarah & Brian met through mutual friends and it is no surprise that they were a match made in heaven!  Speaking of…their wedding was a little slice of heaven as well!  Held at Bernardus Lodge Resort and Spa, the day was perfection.  I am obsessed with this property from the whimsical rose and vegetable gardens to the vineyards and majestic mountains…everywhere you look there is beauty!  Their ceremony was filled with so much love as Sarah & Brian embraced and kissed a few times and never took their gaze off of each other.  After the beautiful ceremony guests were treated to a 5 course meal featuring all the fresh organic ingredients grown right outside.  It was a great night & I wish these two so much happiness! Here is a little snapshot from their day!

Yippeeeee!!!

Screen Shot 2016-01-08 at 3.35.47 PMWhat an amazing year it has been thanks to all my wonderful couples and their families!  I have been welcomed with open arms into your homes, your lives, and your most cherished and personal moments.  I am so grateful for trusting me with these moments, for the friendships I have formed with you all, and the continuing support you give me through your referrals and stellar, blush-worthy reviews!  It is because of You that I have received The Couple’s Choice Award for 2016!  As my girl Ellen D might say, I want to take all that amazing goodness you brought me last year and give it all right back to you for you to stick in your back pocket for a rainy day!  I still haven’t gotten on the show so if someone out there reads this and happens to know Ellen’s gardner or even her dog walker, hook a sister up!

I especially want to thank the wonderful 2nd photographers that helped me this year with their amazing talent, professionalism and creativity…let’s not forget the occasional equipment carrying as my bump grew.  I am thankful for you all more than I can ever express!

On a personal note, 2015 also brought us our very first fur baby…Birdie!  You can follow her on Instagram here @birdie_style.  Can you tell her parents are just slightly obsessed?! She is our little stuffed animal with a heartbeat and a huge blessing to our family! Most importantly, she came to us as an emotional support dog to lift our spirits as trying to conceive a real baby (without fur) turned out to be one of the hardest and most trying times my husband and I have ever faced.  After years and years…and years of trying, praying, crying, remaining hopeful, & more praying we are BEYOND thrilled to meet our baby this February 2016!  As I write this, baby is kicking vigorously and all I can do is smile and thank God!  The miracle of becoming pregnant is something I will never take for granted and I am more than happy to share our journey with others who may be going through similar difficulties.  It is a crazy roller coaster and having a friend to lean on during the ride is so necessary.

With that said, I will be taking February – May off to get to know the little one…and brush up on my newborn photography skills 🙂  My first wedding is May 28th and am booking through November.  It’s gonna be a huge change, but excited to see what 2016 has in store!
