But. . . We have never had professional photos taken before!

I completely understand why this would be a concern for you, but I promise you will look amazing and have a blast doing it!

It is totally ok if you have not worked with a professional photographer before! You do not need to be models to have your memories photographed. I will guide you through posing and give you fun prompts to capture authentic smiles, laughs, and the love between you two.

"When we got the pictures back we were blown away."

My experience with Heather was magical, to say the least. My cheeks hurt when the session was over because we smiled so much. When we got the pictures back we were BLOWN away. Heather offers an amazing deal compared to others around and she travels. There's nothing that could have made our engagement photograph experience/end result any better. I am so thankful for you, Heather. Thank you!

"I would recommend Heather murphy for anyone looking for a wedding photographer!"

I would recommend Heather Murphy for anyone looking for a wedding photographer! She was flexible with our wedding schedule and got great shots of the ceremony without blocking anyone's view. She also has a 4WD truck and was able to take us to a gorgeous bridge off of a dirt road for our first look photos. Can't recommend her enough for anyone in the Northern California/Redding area

Hi I'm Heather!

A little bit about me - I was born and raised in the mountains of Northern California. When I am not photographing weddings you can find me hiking, backpacking, kayaking, and riding dirt bikes. My husband and I live in our little cabin in the woods with our three dogs Scrappy, Trixy, and Minny.

I have always had a passion for photography, for as long as I can remember! I decided to finally make my passion into a business in 2021 and have been capturing incredible stories ever since.

The bond I form with my clients is so important to me. I can’t wait to celebrate with you and capture every epic moment of your day - whether you are planning a big wedding celebration or an intimate elopement in the mountains. I photograph authentic moments to showcase your personalities and emotions throughout the day. It is important for me that you feel like YOU and have fun throughout the process. Let's plan this adventure together!
