Meet Heather

Welcome to my site!  I’m Heather…  Adair is my middle name.  I love photographing moments and emotion and details.  My favorite part about photography is that it catches a split second of time.  You see it everyday, these split seconds, but you never see them frozen but for in a photograph.  That moment caught in time can share so much.  A laugh, a smile, a wink, tenderness and true emotion.  I love it all.  I love love.

Photography was always a hobby but I never thought I would do it as my “day job.”  I never thought photography as a career was the right path. I thought that sitting at a desk, working for a big corporation was the way to go.  It’s what my parents did so it had to be right, right?  Well,  I went to college, graduated with my BA and tried the corporate world for several years.  It just wasn’t for me.   In 2008 I started my business and never looked back.

I love getting to know two people who are in love.  I enjoy learning about your wedding day plans and getting to know you during your engagement session.  Believe it or not, I actually get attached to you as my client.  I get to share in one of your most precious moments and I am humbled to do so.  You become my friends.  I actually get teary eyed photographing your tender moments, especially your vows and “first dance.”  One of my greatest joys really is making YOU happy.

My style is classic and fresh.  A blend of modern portrait, editorial and photo-journalism.  My photos and albums will always have a timeless feel to them – never over-edited.  I’m all about the details.  I love it most when I catch my clients doing whatever cute things you do automatically when you forget the camera is on you and are just being “yourselves.”

As your photographer, I will give you all I have to give and then some. I’m patient, down-to-earth and very easy to get along with.  I work hard to give you beautiful photography and am not opposed to getting dirty in the process.  I have fallen in rivers and moved plenty of big items out of my way to get that “perfect picture.”

If I sound like someone you’d like to work with, feel free to contact me anytime.  I can’t wait to meet you!
