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!

Part of my process is really getting to know my couples before shooting their wedding.  My job is to help their personalities shine through in their images and the only way to do that is to gain their trust and to really get to know their story.  For Saskia & Zach, that was not as easy since they live in New York. However, the few conversations I had with Saskia prior to the wedding was enough for me to know that she was a genuinely nice person filled with love for the man she was soon to marry.  I couldn’t wait to finally meet them! Because they waited to see each other for the first time during the ceremony, I didn’t really get to know them as a couple until halfway through the wedding.  I met Zach first at his hotel and thought to myself, “What a nice gentleman…so welcoming and polite.”  I then went to meet Saskia and from the moment she welcomed me to into her parents’ home, I knew I had been blessed with two people who were individually wonderful and no doubt when brought together, a match made in heaven.  Indeed they are! During the ceremony I thought to myself, “Now this couple is fun!”  The way they looked at each other and the lighthearted laughter they shared throughout the ceremony was a beautiful thing to witness.   During their bride and groom photos, it was good times from start to finish.  If my camera was a mouth it would have eaten every last bit of them up!  So incredibly photogenic, these two!  Zach has a great mind for creativeness so we had fun attempting to utilize a sprinkler into a shot only to realize before it was too late that it was a rotating one.  Let’s just say, it would have been about 4 hours too soon for a trash the dress sesh!  I am so incredibly lucky that these two found me all the way from New York and I do hope our paths cross again! Congrats and enjoy the story of your day!

Jamie & Michael ~ Married!!~ Mission Hills Country Club, Palm Springs

There wasn’t a dry eye during the ceremony, including myself.  The vows were heartfelt, beautiful and pure.  They are each other’s one true love.  They met in high school and have been together ever since.  They found each other at such a young age and grew together, changed together, and as I witnessed on the wedding day, laughed and cried together.  The wedding was all around amazing!  It was Sleek, Timeless and ever so elegant with nods to champagne seen throughout the day.  Jamie’s dress for one was gorgeous, but seeing her in it made it a whole other story!  It was champagne in color and moved so gracefully as she walked.  The guests were greeted with a champagne toast before the ceremony with clever signs that lead people to the reception such as “Save Water, Drink Champagne” and “Keep Calm and Drink Champagne”.  The colors of Gold, Champagne and Black tied the beautiful day together.  The guests were also given care packages at the end of the night that included mini bottles of champagne!  Such an awesome parting gift right!? This wedding was particularly special for me because I had friends in the wedding party that I met through my husband way back in Australia!  I have to say, this was a wild bunch and we had so much fun taking photos! I am so thankful to have gotten to know Jamie and Michael and am so excited to hang with them again!  I couldn’t choose just a few favorites for this blog, so pop some bubbly, and enjoy Jamie and Michael’s wedding day story!  Toast to Love!

A special thanks to Garrett Davis Photography for his fabulous second shooting!  It was an honor and joy to work with him!

And now an Out take!  I’ll do anything you ask me on a wedding day, even if it means getting to wear the veil!  This photo cracks me up cuz I look like a nun!
