Want to know all about Me and McKay’s Photography? Awesome!
Hi! My name is Heather and I’m an international award winning, full-time wedding photographer in Rochester NY. I’m also passionate about running an eco-friendly business and leading a healthy lifestyle. My specialty is in artistically documenting fun, offbeat weddings, day-in-the-life family portraits and small business consulting in the Rochester, Buffalo, Adirondacks and Finger Lakes areas.
As a Rochester wedding photographer, I’m a master at dealing with the quick pace, personality dynamics and structure of all weddings. My training is in fine-art photography, therefore I take a documentary approach to my coverage of your event, while ensuring that Mom and Grandma get those family pictures they crave.
A little more about me… I’m a Leo, a middle child, a fake red head and recently named one of the Top 20 Wedding Photographers in NY! Staying fresh and creating killer tangible heirlooms you don’t even know you can’t live without is what drives me after all these years. Email today so I can learn about what you have planned and we can take the next step. Popular Saturdays book up quickly!

Can I give you a shot list?
That being said, the favorite images of my past couples are ones they never thought to list. Like your parents laughing and dancing together at the reception, your Grandpa being….. Grandpa, your college friends dominating the dance floor and a secret romantic moment between the two of you.
