Looking through a photojournalist’s lens, Heather’s documentary style of photography rises above the subject matter to capture the essence of the magical moments that occur in between the more traditional slate of wedding or family images.

Heather’s specialty is capturing clean, modern, documentary images of smaller sized weddings, unique families, with a little small business photography / world domination thrown in.
