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!
