Once we have the date set up, it's time to grab a cup of coffee or wine and chat! I really want to get to know you two better (of course :-) ) and make sure we are a perfect fit. Then if all goes great, which I'm sure it will, I will send over the contract and invoice and you can officially become part of the Heather Marie Family!!

Step three:

It's time for one of my favorite parts!! Engagement session time! I will send over a questionnaire beforehand so we can make sure we can plan the perfect 60-90 minute session for you filled with laughter, love and several nuzzles or giggle kisses! I promise I will walk you through everything so you feel comfortable the entire time!

Step four:

One month out from your big day I will send you my wedding day questionnaire so I am fully prepared on your wedding day. Then with a few weeks left we will plan a video chat to finalize timelines and answer any last minute questions. This will allow you to just focus on marry the man of your dreams and I'll take care of the rest!

If you choose to add a custom designed album to your package, we will begin working on it once you receive your full gallery. We will work together to create beautifully designed spreads that depict every moment from your wedding day so that later down the road you can share these memories with your children!

It may seem on paper that our relationship is strictly photographer and client, but to me it is just so much more than that!! Each of you is just so special to me and I cherish the memories and friendships we will make. The more I shoot, the more I fall in love with this job!! 
From the beginning I have always been a detailed oriented person and a huge planner. This shines through from our first meeting together all the way to the wedding day. I want to make sure that everything is figured out and planned exactly how you imagined, so that on the day you can relax and just enjoy the people you're with!!

Engagement Portraits

Experience / Investment

These may be my FAVORITE types of sessions! The love during this stage of life is just so unique! As you get ready for your wedding day, the idea of becoming husband and wife slowly becomes more and more real! All you have to do on the day is focus on your partner and just let the love and chemistry between you two do all the talking in the photos!!





I'll never get tired of:

Unique Details

Let each piece show who you two truly are and the special pieces of your love and story together


Sunset Photos as Husband and Wife!!

Those first photos when it is finally official, are filled with the biggest smiles and overflowing love for each other


Radiate Love and Adventure

When two people really love to be together, it shows. And I love it.

Heather made the experience as comfortable as possible for two people that can definitely be awkward in front of a camera :) Everyone in our bridal party and all our family members loved working with her and her bubbly, fun personality! She got our photos back to us super quickly and they were all so so so beautiful and amazing.

"We would recommend Heather Marie Photography for anyone's wedding."

Nicole and Vince


She is energetic, sweet, easy going and fun! She was responsive the entire process and amazing to work with! She kept up on our timeline....we appreciated this so we could enjoy the moment, and she would tell us what was next. The, amazing... we have hundreds of favorites! We are so blessed and fortunate that she was our wedding photographer!

"Heather was amazing to work with... beginning to end!!"

Lisabet and David


My husband and I could not be more thrilled about the experience we had with Heather! We had a blast getting to know her at our engagement shoot and could instantly tell that she would keep our wedding day up-beat and running smoothly. She definitely lived up to this expectation at our wedding. Heather made sure to know who all the family/wedding party members were, who needed photographed when, and what vibe we wanted to achieve. And besides the great experience, we now have absolutely GORGEOUS photos to cherish forever! 

"Every happy moment, special detail, and fun time was captured and we couldn't be more grateful."

Kristi and Mike


You name the place and time and I'll be there. Yes, I am based in Lancaster, PA, but that definitely does not limit me to this area only. I recently have been bit by the travel bug and I just love seeing new places and getting so inspired. Just let me know all your plans in the contact form and we will work together to create a custom package based on your location and needs.

do you travel?

questions? no worries! read the frequently asked questions and answers below! 

Frequently Asked Questions

You will receive your photos in a Pinterest style online gallery. For my wedding we received our wedding photos on a USB. There have been a few times where I had a panic moment because I couldn't remember where I put the USB. I never want that to happen to you, so with this online gallery you can access your photos from anywhere and you will always know where they are.

how do i receive the photos?

Such a great question. My typical answer is 80-100 photos per hour, but since I know we are about to be great friends I will let you in on a little secret. If a photo is good and not a duplicate, you will get it. You deserve to have the full story of your day and I don't want to keep that from you by putting a cap on the number of photos you will receive. So let's just call that the minimum amount you will get :)

how many photos do you receive?

Drum-roll please!! You will receive ALL of your photos within 4-6 weeks of your wedding day. But the best part is because I won't be able to contain my excitement for your images,  you will receive a few sneak peeks and a blog post filled with some of my favorites, within the first week, to hold you over!

what is your turn around time?

I know to some this might seem like a make or break question, but think about it this way. If I shot at the same venue all the time, it would start to get very repetitive. At a new venue, it is like a blank canvas where I can create something brand new! I shoot at new venues all the time and I absolutely love it!! I also make sure to visit the venue prior to the date, or if it is farther away, I arrive early to make sure I can walk around and plan out different locations for backdrops based on the lighting throughout the day. It will be as if I had already photographed there.


Oh I totally got your back! My husband and I are the same way, and I'm a photographer :) I will start with some simple poses to help you feel comfortable in front of the camera, and then from there I will just build off of them and let you two really just shine through the rest of the session. I of course want to make sure you look incredible in every photo, but I really want you to just have fun together so I can capture your unique love!


Oh man, I literally want to cry just thinking about this! I create such close connections with each of my couples so it would break my heart if I couldn't be there to celebrate your special day with you! However, if it would happen, which (knock on wood) it hasn't happened yet; I know my second shooter is absolutely amazing and would step up in a heart beat to take over the primary shooter roll, and I have a close group of photographers that I can easily reach out to and fill the second shooter roll. I know they will take amazing care of you, just like I would!

What if you can't make it to our wedding?

Yes!! And I would be more than happy to provide a Certificate of Insurance to your venue or any other vendor if needed.


Absolutely!! I would be happy to share one (or even two) full wedding galleries with you so you can see what your full day can look like! And if you call right now I'll even throw in an engagement session gallery for you to view as well.

Can we view a full wedding gallery?

You certainly do! You will receive full printing rights so that you and your family can print any of the photos where ever you would like. If you order through the gallery system, it guarantees that the prints with be beautiful, and even more importantly, true to color. Unfortunately, I can't guarantee the color or quality if you print from your local drug store or online print shops. 

Do i have printing rights?

Heck yea!! They are sooo incredibly beneficial!! They not only save time at the beginning of the day so we can do getting ready photos of you two at the same time, but throughout the entire rest of the day they are capturing different angles and moments to give you the full story of your wedding day!

do you work with a second shooter?


Let's get together, yeah-yeah-yeah...
