Hey! My name is Heather!
I'm a Pacific Northwest based destination wedding + elopement photographer, pancake lover, mother to two, wife to a flannel wearing forester, and Hans Zimmer obsessed. I have zero sense of direction but love hopping in the car and just going. I have a cup of coffee always near by and I will never say no to Chinese take-out and Mexican food. I collect donut t-shirts and coffee mugs. My hair is normally a windblown mess and I live in my Chaco's. My husband and I are section hiking away at the Pacific Crest Trail and I'm proud to be apart of the #hikertrash community. I spent my summers as a child in Germany because my family lives there so the #travelbug started since I was an infant. When I'm not editing or being a mom taxi, I love to read, paint, binge watch F•R•I•E•N•D•S or Gilmore Girls, or beating my husbands butt at UNO and Scrabble.
So you're looking for a photographer?
Finding a photographer is like going on your first date, and with so many photographers out there it can feel daunting and overwhelming (I totally get it, I was there with my own wedding.) But it also can be exciting and wonderful.
That's where I come in.
My style is inspired by the old film photos I have in boxes collected from various family members. I believe there's something so whimsical and valuable in the imperfect yet beautiful candid moments that are captured with film. It is my goal every time I come into a session to not just capture the staged photos (that I know mom loves) but to also capture the moments and memories so that when you look back through them years later, you are able to relive the feeling of the day. Because those are the memories you'll carry with you long after the tux's have been returned and the flowers wilted away. When you book with me, you can expect me to ask you to kiss your lover (like a lot), run in random fields, get your shoes a little dirty and see me randomly dance because I get REALLY excited about my job. I love what I do and I'm so passionate about each clients story, that's just the honest truth.
And now you’re here, reading my ramblings, trying to decide if you want to hire me.
Let me start off with, where as much as I want to get hired, us being a good fit is far more important to me! If your into going off the beaten path, willing to get a little dirty, meet over coffee (or wine) and looking for more then cookie cutter, then you’re in the right spot.
If your sitting there saying "YES! I want to find out more" say no more. Send me a message and I'll send over my pricing guide and would love to go hang out with you over coffee (or wine perhaps?) and talk all things your wedding.

Heather was awesome! She was bubbly, fun and always knew what she wanted us to do for the perfect shot! She walked us through everything and constantly told us how cute we were! She really wanted to capture our love and not just us. Would highly recommend!
Greta + Cody...
"Heather is an incredible photographer. I hate having my picture taken but my fiancè and I were sorely in need of photos so I bit the bullet and got them done. I feel beautiful in the shots Heather got of us. She captured every dorky tease, every bubbling laugh, and every sideways glance. Our relationship shines through the photos. I couldn't be happier!"
Ceci + Colton...
"I am always a nervous wreck when it comes to getting photos taken of me, but Heather made it so much fun. She did some couples photos of my fiance and me and I can't describe how much I love them. She gets genuine emotion in the photos. She also had the photos to me the next day. Overall a better than 5 star experience!"
