Hi, I’m Heather!
When I lost my only sister, who I thought I had time to reconnect with that life hit me like a ton of bricks. I learned the hard way that connection & memories are the more important things we will be given in a lifetime, and we should never take them or time for granted.
Life. Is. Frigging. Short.
Nothing is guaranteed. Every day is a gift.
When things get taken from you, shit gets real.
Photography is my lifeline, not just my job. It’s a way to stay inspired by humans, their unique qualities & connections. It’s like a healthy drug I can take over and over again that reminds me why every day is worth living.
I want you to embrace and celebrate your love for your people in a real and organic way. Let me make sure you remember it.
A FEW RANDOM TIDBITS
I’M A PROUD NEWFOUNDLANDER
I fell in love with the PNW during University (UVic BFA) and now live in Victoria BC permanently, but my heart remains deeply rooted in the North Atlantic (put me amongst a group of east-coasters and I’ll let the accent out! Yeees me ducky!).
I ELOPED IN ICELAND
We decided to get married during a global pandemic, and originally planned for Scotland, however the borders remain closed. We took off to Iceland with our photographer only and eloped in the continental divide in freezing rain. No regrets! (we took this photo a couple of days later on our portrait adventure session!)
ANIMALS LOVE ME & I LOVE THEM BACK
Cats, dogs, even kids. I must have been a cuddly panda in a past life, because they all flock to me. I don’t mind one bit!
I’ll always stop to pet the animals and have a little snuggle.
IN MY SPARE TIME…
You’ll find me traveling, making art, learning to play piano, reading a novel (sci-fi, classics, modern lit, autobiographies), at a live concert, or on the couch with my fur-fam watching wonderfully bad reality TV or crime dramas. I also eat a lot of cookies.
I HAVE PHOTOGRAPHED OVER 300 WEDDINGS.
And every single story is unique and sticks with me. I try to approach every day differently, even if I have photographed the same venue 20 times. The people and the connections fuel your photos and how I tell the story of your day.
People ask my about my craziest wedding or whether I get sick of it, but truth be told, I don’t and weddings aren’t that crazy!
My favourite thing about the job is running into past couples in real life, or becoming friends after their big day, or seeing their little families grow.
