About Heather Barnhill photography

Hi there. Thanks so much for your interest in my work. I began shooting weddings in 2012 as an assistant photographer to some of the industries finest in the greater Chattanooga area. My career started as a side business but I quickly fell in love with it and knew I had found my calling and launched Heather Barnhill Photography in 2014. I have personally trained alongside world renowned photographers such as Salvatore Cincotta in the many years I have spent learning my craft. I continually seek out further education to advance my talents and skillset. I love learning new concepts and strive to create the most unique portraits and tasteful art pieces for my clients to cherish and document their most memorable experiences. My images have been featured in publications such as Shutter Magazine, which is a HUGE honor, but my biggest honor is when they adorn the walls of my clients' homes. Through my years of experience with professional printing labs I have developed a very refined taste for photo products such as albums and wall art. The printing professionals I choose to partner with are the top leaders in the industry so that I can ensure the products I offer to my clients have the longevity to span many lifetimes and the understated yet exquisite elegance that could rival Louis Vuitton. Once you touch and feel my Signature Albums you will not want to settle for anything less.

About Heather


I was born and raised in a beautiful valley nestled in the mountains of Southeast Tennessee. Growing up I had many interests but none greater than photography. My love for it all started with my mother's many scrapbooks of our family history and it has grown into a passion that pushes me to view all of God's creation in new and exciting ways. In my adulthood I have had several different careers, none of which ever satisfied my whole heart the way being a photographer does. I love meeting new people and finding unique ways to serve them in the best way possible. I married the love of my life in 2007. We have been blessed with 3 beautiful children that have filled our hearts and home with lots of love, messes and laughter. We moved to the great state of Alabama in 2018 and I began serving the North Alabama region that we now call home. Of all the roles and titles I've held throughout my life, none have been as important as Wife & Momma.
