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!

Danielle & Matt will always have a special place in my heart! It was my “Coming Back” wedding after a year and a half of not photographing a single wedding due to Covid. They had to postpone their date TWICE! The stress of the unknown they experienced with grace is admirable for sure. But in the end, their day…THE day, couldn’t have gone any better! I could tell from the constant smiles and laughter from Danielle and Matt that they were on cloud 9 being able to finally celebrate their marriage with all their friends and family.

There are some special details I have to mention, like the dress…It took my breath away when I saw it hanging in the bridal suite. Layer upon layer of tulle, each with a different wow factor. Some layers had lace appliques, while others were covered in a subtle gold glitter pattern. I also just love how the lace around the neck looked like a gorgeous piece of jewelry framing her neckline. It was a 9 month collaboration with her designer to make her dress-dreams a reality. Another detail that was a vision come to life, was the orchid and floral chandelier that they said their vows beneath. A total masterpiece by Wine Country Flowers and a dream come true for Danielle. See images below. I am so thankful for getting to be a part of this special day! I hope you enjoy the photos!

I can honestly call this a dream wedding from start to finish. When I pulled up to the RU’s Farm property, I knew immediately that I was going to be extremely inspired all day. This venue has it ALL! A gorgeous barn with chandeliers, endless rows of vineyards, a majestic cork tree at the ceremony site, and outdoor dining beneath twinkle lights. But what made this wedding so dreamy was the amazing couple I got to photograph. They are so fun to be around especially since I can tell they have nothing but fun when they are together. It is no wonder their bridal party had me in stitches the whole day! I especially loved capturing the dance party in the barn as the live band, Cover Me Badd, had everyone on their feet all night. I am so excited to share these images with you all! Congrats Courtney & Andrew!!

I literally could not wait to shoot Jenna & Mike’s wedding!  Not only because we had so much fun on their engagement shoot, but also because it had been exactly 10 months since my last wedding due to bedrest and maternity leave.  I was dying to get out there and do what I love again, and returning to the scene with the two nicest people EVER was such a blessing!  Jenna & Mike were incredibly gracious throughout the entire process and were a dream to photograph.  Jenna has a background in theatre and dance which was totally evident in how graceful she moved.  I love how passionate they are for each other.  The way they embraced and snuck little moments together throughout the day and even during group photos was so very sweet to witness.  AND it was so great to see so many kind faces again as I had photographed her sister Kelly’s wedding 2 years prior!

V. Sattui Winery is hands down one of my favorite wineries to shoot at!  The ceremony site is straight out of a fairytale as it surrounded by lush greenery, stone walls, and twinkle lights above.  It was the perfect setting and I am so very happy for these two!

Hayley and Ryan are two of the sweetest and most joyful people I have ever met, so it was no surprise that their friends and family were equally amazing!  It was a pleasure being a part of their Saratoga Springs wedding and capturing the happy tears, the bursts of laughter, and of course the love that surrounds them.  I especially loved Hayley’s slinky backless gown and the gorgeous bouquets with succulents and feathers!  Her palette of mint and coral is one of my favorites!  Of course, Ryan was very handsome in his bowtie and three piece suit, but he had some major competition with their puppy Ozy, who had on a “Best Dog” scarf!  Oh Woof!  One of my favorite moments was the Mother-Daughter dance.  I had never seen one before and thought is was a great idea especially if your mom is one of your best friends!  I am so happy for these two and know they have nothing but lots of laughter and adventures to come!
