It all started with a trip to NYC.
behind the account
Believe it or not, I started out my career in the wedding industry as a wedding planner in 2007. At the time, I was working for a Fortune 100 Company as a Corporate Event Planner, so it seemed fitting to add a related side hustle to the mix! I knew I wanted to be involved in the wedding industry and my day job helped facilitate all the knowledge I needed to feel confident to start my own wedding planner business.
It was named Bella Weddings by Heather
(I was in my Twilight phase)
It wasn't until four years later, I picked up my first camera and my passion changed. I actually swore I would never shoot a wedding because I was terrified of them... the pressure and stress seemed to be too much. However, after a couple of friends sweet talked me into photographing their weddings, I FELL IN LOVE. Now, here we are!

Black is my favorite color. I love the ocean, sunsets, wine and moody summer nights. Connecting to nature is medicinal to me but I love the bright lights of my city. Traveling and exploring new places gives me the best dopamine high.
Progress > Perfection. I've struggled with extreme OCD in my business and I've got in my own way more than once. Distractions and comparisons will set you back.
I'm not a rule follower or a conformist. I do what I feel is intuitively best for me, even when no one else agrees. I don't care about fitting in or following the crowd or playing small and I don't care for surface level interactions of any kind. I'm completely unavailable for a mediocre, boring existence.
We are all here to learn, evolve, grow & expand. Self-love is the key component for getting through this life and having healthy boundaries will always land you in the most ideal situations. Learn how to save yourself, but be soft enough to be open for help when it presents itself.
