Someone once told me that in planning my wedding, I should choose three things that mean the most to me and focus on going all-out for those. Photography was my #1 and Heather Bee Photography exceeded my greatest expectations! From the first time I met with her to discuss possibilities and packages to our meeting just a few weeks ago for the delivery of our beautiful album, Heather was simply amazing. Our engagement photos and our wedding photos were simply stunning, not only because of her talents, but also because she took the time to get to know my husband and me so that the photos were truly personal. We continue to get compliments on the photos and Heather herself from guests at the wedding. We’ve heard multiple times, “Your photographer was awesome!” As for the nitty-gritty… Heather was fantastic in that area as well. She was very communicative and was always happy to answer any questions we had or to work with any ideas that popped into our brains. When our photo package wish list fell between two of her standard packages, she helped us craft our own that took elements of both without batting an eye. I’ve heard so many people say that even months after their wedding they are still working on their albums, but Heather was diligent in making sure that we stayed on track so that we’d have our album in hand only a few months after the wedding. I highly recommend Heather Bee Photography for weddings. She captured so many wonderful memories and she’ll forever remain an important figure in our lives when we look back on our big day because she truly helped to make it the amazing occasion it was.

"It was so great seeing you tonight. Reese and I had such a blast as usual whenever we get together. Thank you, thank you for our beautiful album. I can't stop looking at it. The photos are simply gorgeous! You are truly talented and I'm so thrilled you were the one to capture our precious memories. From our engagement to wedding, you have shown nothing but the utmost care and professionalism. You have gone above and beyond what a photographer should do because you personalize yourself with every client. You take a lot of love and pride in what you do, and it TRULY shows in the work you produce. What can we say, you're the best and you'll always be a special part of our marriage :). Xoxo - The Van Wyens"

Heather was absolutely AMAZING! We interviewed 3-4 other photographers before meeting Heather and 5 minutes into our meeting with her, we were sold. She has an amazing personality, really values everything about you both as individuals and a couple, and has a true gift in her craft.

Right from the beginning, my husband and I are NOT the most comfortable people in front of the camera. Heather makes a real effort to get to know you so that no aspect of photography feels forced at all. During our engagement session, Heather made us feel totally relaxed and she captured everything about us to perfection.

Before our wedding, Heather was always very quick to respond to emails, we were able to customize our package with her to get a larger album, everything perfect. She was willing to do a walk through before the ceremony and reception, at either site, is extremely organized - perfect for what a bride needs!

When our wedding day came around, everything was smooth sailing. Last minute we changed our first look site and it was NO problem at all! (PS - I highly recommend a first look to any bride considering it. It's really the best time for you to relax with your husband, and truly the only time the whole day that it's just you two.) Our bride and bridesmaids pictures went smoothly, her second photographer Anna got great shots of the guys. We went all around Alexandria to capture pics with just the two of us and then ceremony, reception pictures all followed suit. We have some crazy friends and all shots were captured beautifully and perfectly to depict everything on our special day.

We love our album, love all of the pictures, and know that whatever big life event we want to capture, Heather will be the only photographer we call!

When it was time to choose a wedding photographer, there was no doubt in my mind that I would choose Heather! I had never seen better photography than hers. We have now received all of our wedding photos and album, and everything is amazing!

Heather uses a long lens, so that she is not in the way. No one noticed her, and she didn't even show up in the wedding video. She was even able to get AMAZING shots by following the church's photography guidelines. With that long lens, she can also get intimate, up close shots, without being in your face.

Heather replies to questions via email super quickly and thoroughly. She is also extremely patient, as I asked for three rounds of revisions to the amazing album. She removed a piece of hair and swapped out photos with no problem! That was my personal preference, but even if we hadn't changed a thing, the album is a recap of our entire wedding day--all the highlights are there in chronological order, retelling the events and presenting them as if it was a Cinderella story with ZERO flaws!

Heather is extremely personable and professional, all at the same time. When you hire your photographer, you want her/him to be someone that respects what is important to you and makes you feel comfortable as you pose. Heather knew what I wanted and did everything she could to make it happen. She truly cares about her clients.

Quick story- During our engagement shoot, it down-poured. We were able to get super romantic shots in the rain AND Heather rescheduled so that we could finish the rest of the shoot on a sunny day. Those images are all amazing!

If you go with Heather, you will NOT be disappointed!

Heather was our sangeet and wedding photographer. She caught the magic of both events and created amazing images for us! Especially with the Indian music, food, clothes, and jewelry! She took priceless pictures of my grandmother's jewelry and my dad's favorite part of the night, the food! She truly captured the essence of our wedding as well with both of our families and great candid and posed group shots. Her website and delivery of pictures was so easy to peruse and send out to family and friends. She is truely an artist, we have recieved so many compliments from guests at how nice she was and what great pictures she took. Heather is our photographer for life!

Heather made the whole wedding photography experience easy and fun. Being a groom who loathes having his picture taken, Heather had her work cut out for her and she did a great job making me feel comfortable and at home working with her. She really knew her stuff from a fun engagement shoot, to a well run wedding day, to a great album. My wife and I couldn't recommend her more highly!

I should begin by saying that the photography aspect of the wedding was a huge concern of mine. The search for a great photographer in the DC area is a tricky one, given how expensive most photographers are. But Heather's pricing plans were refreshingly affordable.
I became interested in Heather's work after seeing a friend's engagement pictures on Facebook. Upon meeting her, I was taken by her vibrant personality and her professionalism. But the moment when I felt happiest to have her as my photographer was during our engagement photoshoot. Heather requires this as part of your package so that she can get to know you as a couple (and so you can get to know her), and it was honestly the best experience. I am EXTREMELY camera shy,and I generally hate the way I look in pictures, but she made me feel so confident and comfortable, that I actually had FUN. On the day of the wedding, she was unobtrusive, but she got the most beautiful shots - photography was "my thing" that I was most concerned about for the wedding, and Heather nailed it. We saw our photos in a timely fashion, and she even created a mock-up of the wedding album for us - awesome, considering the number of photos my husband and I would have had to wade through in order to do that! She even sent us a Christmas ornament with one of our pictures in it - so cute!
I could not give her a higher recommendation, for being so professional and thoughtful, for making me feel confident in front of the camera, and for producing such amazing work at a very reasonable price.

I truly LOVED working with Heather. I thank Heather for all the times meeting with me. Heather is very responsive and is always on time with all our meetings. I thank her for being so patient with me and dealing with me being so indecisive. I thank Heather for being our PHOTOGRAPHER!! It was such a pleasure working with her. My husband and I are pleased to have chosen Heather as our photographer. I know our pictures will look amazing because my husband and I both know Heather has a great eye for things and as everyone mentioned at my wedding ...they loved my engagement pictures. Heather did a wonderful job with our engagement pictures that I wanted to show them off to our friends and family at my wedding so at each table I placed a picture from my engagement session in a gorgeous frame. At the end of the night a few people were arguing/fighting over the frames. I thought it was because they wanted the frame but I later find out that .....they LOVED the pictures :) I definitely recommend Heather as a photographer. I myself plan to work with Heather again ....even if it is for a pregnancy shoot or a family photograph/portraits. Well Heather, I am so happy to have you as my photographer and for the million time....THANK YOU for everything.

We found Heather Bee on the internet, she knocked us away by her work! We looked at her work for 2 minutes and emailed her right away to get a meeting set up. We did our engagement photos, wedding and reception with her. Our engagement photos were the hit of the town. Our families fell in love with her and everyone else who saw them. She took our vision for our photos and she made it happen. On our wedding day she was awesome, she was calm and she worked around our schedule that day. She paid attention to detail which we loved the most. Every picture was what we wanted even without having to tell her.

Heather was nothing short of amazing as our photographer! She was not only able to get all the shots we wanted, but also was amazingly cheerful and helpful throughout the process. At no point did we feel like we were being slighted or not getting what we needed for our special day. And then, the proof is always at the end - the shots were unbelievably gorgeous! She has a great eye for the perfect shots, and we have a perfect wedding album full of nothing but A+ shots from her. I recommend her without the slightest reservation! If you want everything to go perfect as far as your wedding photos are concerned, hire Heather right now!
