Heather is AMAZING! She's so sweet, fun, and just a joy to be around. She is also incredibly talented and caught so many candid, special moments between me and my husband. She was our photographer for both our engagement photos and our wedding on October 7th, 2016 and I could not be happier. I still look at all of our photos at least once per week because I love them so much! Our photos are stunning and her creativity really shined at our unique venue, The Pearl Hotel. I could not recommend her highly enough! Thank you for everything, Heather!

Heather is seriously AMAZING!! We met her at the Bridal Bazaar in Del Mar and she was super nice and friendly. I looked at so many different photographers, got quotes, compared styles, but overall I just kept gravitating toward Heather (Thank goodness!). I was dead set on having the same photographer for our engagement photos as wedding, so first we hired her to do our engagement session. She made us feel so comfortable and it was easy to work with her. Of course, we got our photos back and I was obsessed and immediately signed a contract for our wedding day! On the day of, she and her assistant were prompt and got right to work! They worked super well with our videographers (Heather recommended him from a previous job they did together). They were on their feet all day snapping pictures of everything that mattered (and things we missed because we were doing other things!) HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! The only thing I was bummed about, was not getting photos of our cupcake/dessert table (but in her defense, I didn't even know it was set up out there until all the cupcakes were almost gone.. it was separate from our wedding cake and out by the bar) and they left before the sparklers. BUT we have our videography of that, so not all was lost ;)
I will definitely be hiring Heather to do any other photo ops (maternity/family) in the future! LOVE HER!!!

Heather Elise is a dynamic person and extremely talented photographer. She is so amazing at what she does and has an amazing personality that you truly love spending the day with her. My husband and I will be working with Heather for a lifetime. I've never seen such amazing photography and so artistic. People commented on our pictures and stated that they “looked like paintings” since it was that good.

Not only is her photography amazing and she is so talented, has the eye, responsive, high quality, prompt, timely, professional, but also she is an amazing person. I truly feel like her husband is a lucky man to be married to her because she rocks. Her positive and adaptable attitude makes the environment shine more. Everyone at our wedding says that Heather Elise was the best photographer they ever met. I have a feeling the rest of my friends and family, (my husbands brothers and soon to be wives will be interested in her services and they live in Boston!)

We truly can say that having the best photographer, talent and personality wise is the best choice you can do for your wedding day. Heather Elise is amazing. I am so excited just writing this about her because I want to keep her in my pocket because she is so talented and so fun! She worked amazing with all the vendors such as our DJ Blake and our wedding planner Shelby Owens from Simply Classic Events.

We can't wait to take pregnant pictures and other life event photos with Heather Elise for the rest of our lives.

Heather was everything we wanted in a photographer. At our request, she met with us at our ceremony/reception site prior to booking so we could really get to see and hear her vision/creativity/ideas. We immediately felt relaxed and in good hands. Heather is fun and professional at the same time. What we appreciated the most is that she worked at our pace. We articulated what we wanted to happen and she made it work (we wanted the photos to move at a fast pace and we had lots of family and a large wedding party!) The end result was amazing. My husband and I love the photos and can't wait to share them with family and friends. We highly recommend working with Heather!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Heather - she undoubtedly contributed to how fun our wedding day was!!! We interviewed many photographers for months prior to hiring one, but as soon as I met Heather, I knew she would be the perfect addition to our perfect day! Heather replied so quickly to my inquiry. Her work was very impressive, so I wasn't surprised when we found that she was out of our price range, but she was willing to work with us to ensure we got the photos and number of photographers we desired for a very reasonable price! Heather was directive when she needed to be (with a rowdy bridal party!) and refused to let anything get in the way of our happiness and a perfect product. She was always smiling and made me feel like the most beautiful bride all day, even after a few hours of dancing next to the fireplace! Our family and guests loved her too, and she seemed to be in a million places at once! She and her team showed up promptly and she worked so well and professionally with our other vendors (our videographer, coordinator, DJ) to capture every moment and emotion perfectly. She is so much fun, has so many very creative ideas, and is very easy to work with! After the wedding, she completed the editing quickly, and we had our photos within a month. We absolutely could not have asked for a better photographer and could not recommend her more - thank you so so so much, Heather!

Heather Elise was amazing! She has a very fun and bubbly personality. Working with her was an awesome experience.

She was prompt, professional and courteous with her correspondence and so fun to work with. We went with her for both our engagement and wedding photos. She has expert photography skills. It was cool to watch her take a double take at something she saw and turn it into a perfect backdrop for a photo. She was really good at this.

She also made us feel special, like we were the most important thing in the world to her at the shoots. She even "encouraged" a few people to move out of the way when they were carelessly interfering with our photo shoot.

Something else my wife and I liked about Heather was her approachability. She was very good at giving us directions when we needed it and at the same time respecting our wishes.

Heather Elise is the way to go when you need a photographer!

My fiance and I had such high expectations for our engagement photos and Heather totally blew us away! We were 100% happy with the photo shoot and the results. We live in Chicago and were looking for someone we could trust to give us a great set of pics from my fiance’s home town of San Diego. We both wanted this to be a fun experience in addition to having a few great photos that we could have forever. Now we have dozens of amazing photos from that day. Heather made it all seem so easy with such excellent direction and attention to detail. She was extremely helpful, responsive, and understanding with everything, including the planning of the shoot via email.

Whether you go into the shoot with a bunch of ideas for locations and poses or if you are looking for someone to tell you exactly what to do, you won't be disappointed. She was a true professional; so friendly and creative. We ended up with such a variety of poses and backgrounds. She had lots of compliments for us during the shoot which helped to make us both feel confident and totally at ease. She would even point out little changes like adjusting my hair or outfit, or my fiance’s pose so that every shot turned out to be picture perfect. We realized later that her little suggestions made all the difference.

After the shoot with Heather we had tons of phenomenal pictures to choose from. We highly recommend Heather Elise for any type of photo shoot. It's worth every penny. And we would strongly suggest "going with the flow" and taking Heather's advice as we did, since the photos turned out so great. Our friends and family love all the pictures. Needless to say we will definitely be going back to Heather for any future photography events. We still can't get over how fantastic the photos turned out!

I could not be more impressed with Heather's work and the images that she captured of our wedding day. In my day job, I work with all sort of photographers (including Nigel Barker, Todd Selby, Dan Monick, etc) and Heather has a great eye for lighting, image composition and an unteachable ability to make people open up for the camera so that she can capture the best picture possible. She worked so well with the various personalities of our wedding party and went above and beyond what she needed to do to deliver on our wedding pictures.

I get so many compliments on our pictures and I can not thank Heather enough for her amazing work.

5 stars isn't enough.

Heather is amazing at her job!
If you're looking for a photographer who will take all of your recommendations, embrace and enhance them to make your special day perfect... look no further! Heather went above and beyond to make our wedding party and family feel comfortable from the very beginning. During our April 13 wedding, she worked for over 12 hours and always kept a smile on her face... even as she lay on the ground on the boardwalk or trekked through sand on the beach to get the perfect photo! She was open to doing anything fun and even volunteered to ride the Belmont roller coaster with the wedding party to get the perfect shot. I look forward to receiving the photos!!
