Meet Me

Hello!

MY VISION FOR YOUR WEDDING IS TO CAPTURE YOUR DAY JUST AS IT IS, AS A WONDERFUL REFLECTION OF THE BOTH OF YOU.

All of the good stuff. Giggles and champagne with your girls in your dressing gowns . That moment when mum is buttoning up your dress. When dad sees you in your dress for the first time and you get that emotion filled cuddle.

The moment where you two first see each other and the excitement and joy that is evident on your faces. That same joy reflected in your loved ones watching on and ready to celebrate along with you.

A little more about me…

I’m Heather and I’m a Documentary photography graduate from the University of Wales, Newport. With a background in Documentary, I focus on capturing those little details and secret moments that may otherwise go unnoticed on your big day. My style is natural and unobtrusive and I love photographing those moments that will be treasured by you and your families.

I’m a big fan of the outdoors and any couple that manages to put faith in the British weather to have outdoor nuptials! I’ll be right there with you in the sunshine or showers and believe there’s definitely beauty in both.

I shoot primarily with my 50mm lens on my Canon 5d mark iii which to me is the best for taking portraits and swap out to my wide angle lens for larger shots. I am a massive fan of using natural light where possible but always make sure I’ve got my flash set up to capture those dance moves in the evening.

I’m based in Cardiff and Newport but love to travel further afield having photographed weddings in Somerset, Gloucestershire, Bridgend, the Gower, Hertfordshire, Hampshire, London and Edinburgh. Definitely wouldn’t say no to a destination wedding either!

If you are starting to make those plans for your big day or are in need of an appreciative eye to capture those other special moments in life, I’d love to hear about it! Drop me an email or give me a call.

“Heather did our wedding photos, as well as an engagement photo shoot a couple of months beforehand to help us get a feel for being photographed. The attention to detail to ensure our wedding photos were the very best they could have been was phenomenal!”

LYDIA & COLIN

“Heather was creative and really useful in directing myself and my wife who have no idea how to pose for photos! Definitely would recommend to anyone who wants wedding photos to treasure for a life time.”

DANIEL & RHEA

“Heather was our photographer for our wedding and I can’t be more happy with our beautiful pictures, we were lucky enough to get married at a beautiful castle and she captured the beauty of the venue better than I could of hoped for. She was professional and down-to-earth and more importantly patient especially when dealing with the kids and our large family. I highly recommend her and will be using her again for our next event – thank you, Heather!”

HEATHER & CAMERON

“We loved our engagement shoot with Heather! The pictures came out beautifully and we are one extremely happy couple with the results. Heather photographed our engagement shoot outside in nature just as we wanted. She was so professional, calm and talented and told us how and where to pose whilst keeping everything looking natural. Looking back on the photos always makes us smile. Thank you for capturing the beginning of us tying-the-knot!”

UJVARA & MARK

“Heather has taken photos of both of my children and every time she has been professional and caring. She is able to capture precious moments that we treasure as a family. Thank you, Heather!”

BETHAN

“Heather has photographed my friend’s and my sister’s wedding, and in both cases I’ve been incredibly impressed by the results! No matter where she is, she will seek out the most beautiful surroundings and use natural lighting to get stunning shots. She could honestly find beauty in a concrete car park. Heather is not only an artist, but also incredibly professional, calm and organised. I would recommend her to anyone! Especially if you are after natural / documentary style photos.”
