I am very happy with our decision to hire Heather for our wedding! I am not familiar with the area, so making decisions on vendors was difficult. Hiring a good photographer is such an important part of wedding planning, and I was worried that I would end up choosing the wrong person. Thankfully, that didn't happen! From working with Heather at our engagement session, to working with her on the day of the wedding, we had a great experience! Heather put up with my busy schedule and was very personable, throughout the whole experience. Heather went above and beyond, in the fact that she created a wedding day timeline for us, since she knew I didn't hire a coordinator. While the experience working with Heather was great, the final product tops it all! I look at a lot of wedding photos in my job, and I was worried that my expectations would be too high. I was so wrong, however, as Heather captured the beautiful details of our wedding, she captured the raw emotions of myself and my husband, and she captured the endless fun our guests were having! I'm so thankful to have these keepsakes, as we will cherish them forever!

We hired Heather for our wedding and oh my gosh.. It was one of the best decisions we made! She made all our running around, switching between locations, & crazy requests seem so simple and smooth. It came a monsoon right after our ceremony and it wasn't a thing for her to pick right back up where she left off when it finally calmed down. Not to mention the communication for the year leading up to the wedding was amazing. We talked every month, if not more than once a month! I couldn't have been any happier with her work, & gaining a new friend in the process makes it that much better!

Heather did an AMAZING job! And I was a bit nervous at first because the photographer I always use for family pictures and so on was unavailable. To have someone do my wedding pictures that I had never personally used before scared me. But let me tell you, using Heather Barnhill Photography was the best thing! She was patient with me and helped get the shot just as I wanted it. She went above and beyond with the details to ensure I was getting what I expected. She was very flexible and meant business at the same time... Meaning if there was a shot I wanted to try, we did but if it didn’t look right, she was quick to say “no that’s good” or “let’s try it this way”... She had fun with us and made sure to capture the happiness of our day from start to finish! But after our big day, her work wasn’t done... She took countless hours to edit our pictures and work with me on our album to ensure I was completely satisfied with the entire product. She is an amazing photographer and great to work with. I would recommend her to anyone!

Heather is a photographer who is passionate about immortalizing the most precious memories in her clients’ lives. She has such a warm and understanding demeanor—she makes you feel like family. She uses her sweet southern charm and great sense of humor to make you comfortable in front of the camera so she can bring out the most natural, beautiful smiles. I can’t stress how important that is for wedding day portraits. I’ve never considered myself very photogenic, but I don’t think I’ve ever been more pleased with my photos. I love how she came prepared with ideas for shots for my wedding. She makes her sessions personal and gushed at shots of our romance, squealing, “Ahh, that’s money!” I couldn’t help but laugh, which only made our wedding photos that much better. She takes such pride in her work and is always very communicative about status updates post-ceremony, providing sneak peeks as she edited our photos. It gave me something to savor until she was ready with the finished product. Right down to the packaging of the photos, Heather provides elegant, thoughtful, personal touches that make you feel like a valued customer. Like family. And nothing brings joy to one’s heart better than that kind of love and care.
