My name is Heidi. I live in Upstate New York. I am a wedding and lifestyle photographer. I also own and operate my very own event venue with my husband Frank. We are all weddings all the time!
I don't really consider myself a "wedding photographer". I am more importantly an artist. I consider my camera a tool. As a painter might describe his/her paint brush. It allows me to make pictures of moments and people in love. The way I see them.
I am the kind of girl who is going to trail your limo with your bouquet and champagne, help when you bustle gives up mid dance move, and reminds your Dad to take off his sunglasses during the group photos.
Almost every wedding I photograph a guest approaches me and asks how I know the couple and if I am a long time friend they've never met. If you were wondering how I approach the day - that pretty much explains it. I blend in and become a part of your day.
I have had the honor of capturing the wedding day of so many different creatives. I have worked with film directors, fashion designers, art professors, bloggers, art directors, magazine editors, graphic designers, fellow photographers and all types of other artists. We see the world in the same way. Full of spontaneous opportunity and beauty.
I just like to tell stories in the most natural way possible. I don't like to fake moments. I enjoy film like qualities in digital age imagery. I break the rules. I am not afraid of lens flare, grain and negative space. I don't believe in the prom pose. I don't believe in having a book of photo configurations I make every couple do. Each wedding and couple is different. I live for the moments in-between takes. I'd rather just let you act like a living breathing human. Sound ok?
