HEATHER SCHARF PHOTOGRAPHY
DESIGN BY SITEHOUSE DESIGN
Welcome to my happy place
I thank God everyday that He has blessed me with 2 passions. From 9-5 pm I design children's clothing here in San Francisco, and on the weekends I get to hang out with the happiest people on Earth -- Couples in Love. It was a long road filled with unexpected twists and turns that brought me to these amazing jobs. After graduating with a psychology degree from Cal Poly that came free with a side of anxiety, I had no clue what I was supposed to do next. After an aptitude test pointed me in the direction of fashion design, I enrolled at FIDM. What started out as a shot in the dark, ended up becoming a passion for fashion! I graduated with the highest honors and found myself with a real job at Gymboree! It wasn't until I married the man of my dreams, who I met traveling in Australia, that I unearthed another passion of mine: photography. I never thought I would find that thing -- that God given gift that would fill my heart with so much happiness. Fashion and Photography couldn't be a more beautiful union as the combination of both make me the unique photographer I am today.
My friends would probably describe me as a goof ball, sentimental to a fault, and one suffering from FOMO (fear of missing out). I am drawn to challenges, seek adventure, and live for making people laugh. I cry at every wedding, have boxes filled with memorabilia dating as far back as 7th grade, and so many photo albums that you could stack them to the heavens. I believe all these pieces of me come out in my photography.
It's the sentimental part of me that must capture every last detail and moment of a wedding and my fashion background that inspires how I compose an image or orchestrate a session.
Most of all, I love that I get to meet incredible people every day! I live for a couples story, and if I could, I would eat popcorn and listen to one couple after the next tell me how they fell in love. I LOVE a good story and cannot wait to hear yours! Feel free to reach out, Id love to meet you!
Your Pal, Heather
