I would pick all 5 if it let me. Lol. What can I say about Heather??? She is amazing I hate taking photos but Heather brought out the best in me and my family. I would hire Heather again in a heart beat she is amazing and on time. She comes with great energy. She also knows so many people in the industry she got use our videographer and makeup artist for great prices. With out her my wedding wouldn’t be complete highly recommend.

Heather is a photographer like no other! Not only did she make my fiancee and I feel comfortable during our engagement shoot, but she had a perfect balance of giving great ideas for poses and location, while taking into consideration exactly what we wanted. Heather takes the time to learn about her clients before she works with them, and takes the time to get to know them during the shoot as well. I would recommend Heather to anyone, and cannot wait to use her for my wedding!

Heather is an outstanding photographer and person. We did an engagement shoot with her and it was an amazing experience from start to finish! She is very thorough and eager to capture her subjects vision. After our initial call, she scheduled another call to discuss the location of the shoot and logistics. Together, we came up with the awesome idea to shoot in a park in Queens during cherry blossom season. She told us the colors she thought would be best for us to wear based on the colors of the flowers, we were SO impressed with her knowledge and amazing attention to detail! Fast forward to the shoot, we got there a little late which was a bit stressful but Heather had an amazing attitude. I must say, this shoot was one of the most romantic moments we've had since we've been engaged. Heather asked us to look each other in the eyes and connect. We did just that! There was nothing super posey or unnatural about the shoot. She gently guided us all the way through and really heard what we were asking of her. Heather holds a special place in our hearts forever!

Heather is amazing!! She was so warm and friendly from our very first call and made us feel so comfortable. Her professionalism shone through in every interaction, but her passion made sure it never felt like she was just doing her job. The day we did our engagement shoot, it was absolutely freezing and we were right on the water. Heather never complained once about the weather, and she made the situation work to our advantage! I hate having my photo taken, and while I was uncomfortable at first, Heather was very patient and soon I felt completely normal. She was able to capture our personalities so well and get amazing shots while never making us feel like she intruded. We loved working with her so much, we wanted to book her for our wedding before we even saw the final shots from the engagement shoot! After seeing the final edits, we knew we had made the right choice. Heather sat with us on a zoom call to go through her top choices from the engagement shoot to get our reactions and feedback, so she can tailor her work for the wedding day to make sure she captures what we want and how we want it. We cannot wait to have her capture our special day!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My prices vary per service offering. If you have any questions, please reach out! In general though, all my fees include pre-production consultation, location scouting, the photoshoot, lighting and equipment, and general editing. Retouching is available for an additional fee. Albums are also available for an additional fee.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I am an extrovert, so I always like to start by talking on the phone to get to know each other. After that, I will talk about my creative process and packages. If I am hired, we'd also set a separate creative planning call a few weeks prior to our photoshoot as preparation (consult on location, wardrobe, colors, theme, etc). Once the photos are edited, I host a zoom call to review them together so I can get on-the-spot feedback. I always look to improve and love listening to your spontaneous feedback. If you are a wedding client, I use the engagement session as a no-obligations trial and your feedback guides how we can plan your wedding portraits. This is a way I can make the complexity of wedding planning a bit more carefree.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    MFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts, New York, NY
