INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, High Resolution Images, Negatives, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Yes. Some of the B&W photos with the flowers in color, for example, are always included if couples like that special effect.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes. Every situation, and weather condition (including hurricanes;). We were newspaper staff photographers so we know how to prepare for anything!
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital. It really is just as good as film because we use professional grade cameras and shoot on the highest quality setting so you get the best photographs possible.
How many photographers do you work with?
Usually we work alone but two photographer packages are available.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes. Heather photographs most of the weddings alone and if you want a different photographer like Rob, her husband, (or additional photographers) you will get the chance to meet them before the wedding day.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Only one wedding a day.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes, we serve as backups for each other (Heather & Rob) and have a network of professional newspaper photographers with wedding experience that we use as second photographers and are available if something were to happen (which hasn't happened yet, knock-on-wood)
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Two cameras on our shoulders at all times, a third in the car, multiple lenses, flashes and sometimes light stands & remotes for lighting portraits. We bring what we can carry so we can react better to the moments as they happen and keep backups nearby.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes, see equipment answer above.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Our packages start with 8 hours because that is the basic amount of time we need to capture the story of your day. We have an hourly rate for additional hours and can create a custom package if you will need fewer than 5 hrs. of coverage.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes, it is $200/hour.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Breaks are nice, but we don't usually take them because there's just too much to take pictures of! We do ask that a meal be provided, since 8+ hrs. is a long time to go without food.
Do you charge for travel?
Included, unless it is outside Hampton Roads. So north of Richmond, the Eastern Shore or south of Sandbridge.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
About 3-4 weeks. We retouch ALL our photos!!
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
They will be online (so you can share them) and then you receive a USBof ALL 400+ retouched photos.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Forever. They do not say "proof" on them so the prints can be used in your own scrapbook or given away and the book works as a display book.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes - but you don't need the copyright to make prints, only to sell them. So we give you permission to print copies on your own.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes, but you can use them for announcements, Facebook, or in your own personal products (like albums from Costco or Target).
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes, retouched digital files - full res.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes, for three months. Can be protected with a password, made private or public.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Traditional leather matted style, flushmount coffee table style, and hardcover book style. From companies like Leather Craftsmen, Album Crafters and others. And if you want an album from a company we don't work with regularly we can do that too.
When will the client get the final album?
Depends on which one. Anywhere from 3-8 weeks from when it is ordered (you approve every album before it is ordered).

We want to thank Heather Hughes soooo much for all of her hard work! My husband and I could not have found a better photographer. Heather was everything I ever dreamed of for someone to work with on my wedding day, and I will always think very highly of her. Not only was she extremely professional, but she was very easy going and fun to work with! Her personality truly made our experience fantastic. Our pictures were more than we ever dreamed of having and the quality of them is simply jaw dropping. I am so thankful for our choice to go with Heather Hughes Photography and would recommend to her to anyone!!

I would highly recommend Heather to anyone!!! She captured all of the moments of our wedding perfectly from beginning to end. She even extended an hour for an extra fee which was well worth it to catch all of our last minute shenanigans. The sparkler sendoff pictures could not have been more perfect!

Heather did an incredible job of documenting our wedding day. I hardly noticed her during the event, so I was delighted to see so many of the emotional, fun, and funny moments she captured in our photographs. She was responsive and thoughtful through the planning process and quick to deliver the photos afterward. I would happily recommend Heather to our friends.

Heather was fantastic! She was pregnant during our wedding, but had two other professional photographers (her husband and a friend) with her to ensure we got a ton of fantastic photos from our day. She was very accommodating and quick to respond and it was just like having another friend at our wedding. She and her team were fantastic!

Heather and Rob are phenomenal photographers! They captured the real story of our wedding day, which was really important to us. They are true artists. Their work is not about capturing routine wedding shots, they capture the moments that really tell the love story of a wedding. They are also incredibly kind, fun and hardworking. Heather was 8 months pregnant when she shot our outdoor wedding in the rain. She did a flawless job! This is one of the smartest investments you will make as far as wedding vendors.

Heather is such a great photographer! She must have magical powers, because we felt like she was everywhere at the wedding but then she was never obtrusive about it! She was also especially patient with the oblivious groomsmen before the ceremony and afterwards when we were trying to take pictures and they were reaching for more beers! We are so grateful that there was a photographer who meshed with our style and personality so well. We never felt like she was forcing picture moments on us. We haven't received our wedding pictures yet, but if they're anything like our engagement photos, I know they'll be excellent!

Heather did an AMAZING job! Upon first meeting her I felt that she would do an excellent job of capturing the mood of our wedding, and she definitely did. There was some chaos at our wedding as it began raining 30 minutes before our beach ceremony was to start and we had to do the ceremony and group photos elsewhere. She did a great job of adapting to the situation and got some awesome pictures!
Another thing we really liked about working with Heather is that she made us feel very comfortable. She's very professional but warm and friendly as well. We definitely recommend her!

Unbelievable customer service and quality of work. We live in Vermont and had to plan our wedding by looking at on-line vendors in the greater Williamsburg area and making phone calls. Heather's website got us excited about her work. When we spoke with her on the phone we were sold by her friendly, helpful attitude. The quality and originallity of her photos is obvious. We spent a lot of time checking out all our vendors and Heather came out on top. She did a nice mixture of candid and portrait shots, and gave us hundreds to choose from. She arrived at our venue in plenty of time to talk with us and discuss any details before the start of the ceremony. Our rating of Heather is a five out of five.

Heather was absolutely amazing for our wedding! She met with us several times before the big day and was very accommodating with any requests we had. Heather was so prepared for every meeting and we loved looking through the photos she had previously done (especially as some of them were at our venue). She did a great job capturing the "moments" of our special day which was exactly what we were looking for! In addition, after our wedding, we became a bit unresponsive at times when she was trying to design our album as we got back into our day to day life, but she never was upset with us! She was gracious and so supportive of our busy lifestyle. She also did a great job designing our album and I look through it every day.

Heather was the best of both worlds the day of. She is fun to be around and a wonderful person so its easy to spend the whole day with her, but she also blended into the background to capture all the right moments without being intrusive. I would recommend her any day to anyone! We were very lucky to be able to have her capture our special day!

Let me just say that I honestly can not stand getting my picture taken...I simply do not like it. To say I was a challenging subject is putting it mildly.

Aside from the pictures that every couple has to "endure", I hardly noticed them. Excellent job on their behalf, because the photos obviously prove they were everywhere! They are very easy to work with, always on time and had excellent communication with us. We were looking someone that was laid back yet professional; Heather and Rob have both in spades. Do yourself a favor and explore what they have to offer--you won't be disappointed with the results.

Heather was awesome! I knew from the moment that I met with her that I wasn't going to have to worry about a thing! I got so many compliments from my guests about how attentive she was. Whenever there was a photo-op she was right there to capture the moment. Our families (and us) couldn't have been happier with the way the pictures turned out! She even accomodated a change in our time at the last minute extending an hour to take some extra shots. I can't thank her enough. She was very professional and personal at the same time. I HIGHLY recommend her for you photography needs!! Thanks Heather!

Heather was absolutely amazing and I would recommend her to anyone. For all the money spent on a wedding, this is one investment that will last a lifetime. Heather was personable, interested in our story and in what we wanted our wedding day to be, and flexible in meeting our needs. On our wedding day she captured everything, yet was hardly noticed. And now the best part -we absolutely love our pictures!! The day we got them, we looked at them over and over and over again. Only one word came to mind - WOW. She truly captured the feel of the day and gave us a priceless gift - the ability to re-live our magical day.

And now the best part -we absolutely love our pictures!! The day we got them, we looked at them over and over and over again. Only one word came to mind - WOW. She truly captured the feel of the day and gave us a priceless gift - the ability to re-live our magical day. Read less

Heather was amazing! She was warm and friendly but was very professional in handling family pictures and keeping the "show-on-the-road." I felt very comfortable with her and most importantly, my pictures were perfect! She definately captured the spirit and feeling of our wedding day in each and every shot. I live in Seattle and my wedding was in Virginia so I was left to find a photographer online. I was very lucky to find Heather and would recommend her to any bride!

I wish I could scream to the world how happy I am that we had Heather do our photos!!! We LOVE our photos. When you look at the pictures you feel as though you are experiencing the wedding even if you did not attend it. The candid shots are awesome and the still shots are wonderful. She captured every moment, I mean every moment. Just as the other reviewers stated you would never know that she attended the wedding. I would recommend her to everyone I meet. She is very professional, her contract is easy to read a understand. I live in the Richmond area and she would email, send a reminder card or call just to keep in touch. We also met a couple times within the year to touch base. Our photos were completed less than 2 weeks after the wedding. We just have one dilemma, We don't know which photos to pick for our formal album because they all are Fantastic!! Heather thanks for giving us WONDERFUL DOCUMENTED MEMORIES of our wedding!!!!

Heather was such a pleasure to work with. All transactions were easy and professional. The day of the wedding she was on time (which we were late), and had already set up an appointment for photos in the lighthouse! Before we even returned from our honeymoon our photos were online at our website and ready for us to send to all our friends and family. All of our posed pics were great but the random action shots are the BEST. Thanks Heather for a wonderful experience and capturing our wedding day with beautiful photos! I would recommend Heather Hughes photography 110%.

Heather was absolutely amazing to work with! She is extremly professional but is very friendly and approachable. She was always on top of things and responded to our questions timely before the wedding and had all of the photos posted online within 2 weeks afterwards. Our proof book arrrived just days later. She made the planning process extremly easy and the wedding day went absolutely perfectly. The pictures came out AMAZING and we couldn't have been happier with them. She seemed to have captured the whole entire day perfectly. She was everywhere taking photos constantly but you never seemed to see her as she blended in so well. Our friends and family referred to her as our "ninja photographer". The traditional shots came out great and were still natural and not overly posed. The candid shots were fantastic! She captured some great moments and we couldn't have been happier in choosing Heather and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer.

She truly is a professional and gives the best service (and her prices are very reasonable). She is organized and got all the "shots" we wanted and they turned out amazing!

On our wedding day her work was sharp, detailed, and captured the special moments of our day that we were not able to witness personally. She told our wedding day story the way we would have told it, had we possessed her talent and vision. Her services were by far our best wedding investment.

I can't even begin to express how I feel about Heather and her photography services. As a bride, it was so important to me to have my wedding day not only captured accurately , but also artistically. Heather exceeded my expectations in both regards. I was torn between two photographers, and my husband said to me "I want Heather, hands down". I'm so glad he did. In our meetings prior to the wedding day, she listened to what my husband and I said that we wanted from our photographs, and when we saw the finished product we were not only impressed with her work, but overjoyed that she captured all of the moments that we had told her we hoped she could get on film. There were many people that we weren't able to invite to our wedding, but as soon as they saw Heather's pictures, they told me that they could feel the mood of the event. My husband, our families, and myself ran a gamut of emotions on our wedding day, and every single one of them can be seen and felt in the fantastic photos that Heather took. Everytime I look at my album and at all of the photos that I have hung up in our home (which, by the way...has become a little excessive!) I feel so satisfied. Not only did I marry a wonderful man, but I certainly picked the best possible woman to record the most wonderful day of my life onto film. Heather did an amazing job blending into the event. There is nothing worse than the feeling that your being followed around by a camera! She really went the extra mile to get every shot, including taking photos while driving behind the trolley that held the entire wedding party! She's like superwoman :-) She's professional, courteous, funny, and she's worth every penny. In my opinion, chosing another photographer over Heather would be a regretful choice.

Heather far exceeded our expectations which were pretty high to begin with. She did our engagement photos which were spectacular and from that point forward I was sooo excited going forward with our wedding. She truly captured the feeling and essence of our day. The emotion, the joy, the conflicting feelings of joy and sadness of my dad. It takes a true talent to capture the sort of shots she did. If you like photojournalist styles that are not too posed and very artistic, PICK HEATHER HUGHES PHOTOGRAPHY:-) We got sooo many compliments on our wedding pics.

From the moment I met Heather I knew she would be perfect for our wedding. Her calm demeanor kept everyone at ease throughout our event. All of our pictures reveal her immense talent and ability to make everyone look fantastic. She even captured my father-in-law with several smiles (which isn’t an easy feat)! Her photographs showcase a natural and artistic beauty that make it hard to decide on what pictures to order!

I could not have been happier with our selection and HIGHLY recommend Heather to anyone who wants beautiful memories from their wedding. Out of all my vendors, Heather was my favorite!

Heather was just what we were looking for. We liked her style of photography, the prices she offered, her professionalism and flexibility, and the services she had.

We are from the Hampton Roads area but currently live in the Washington D.C. area. We wanted our wedding to take place in Virginia Beach, so it was a lot of traveling back and forth. After a few e-mail exchanges, we finally were able to meet up with Heather one weekend. Heather's business is run out of the Newport News area, but we had many appointments to attend to in Virginia Beach. Heather was very flexible with setting up a meeting that she offered to meet us on our way back to D.C. at a Panera. Heather had albums to show us and we were able to talk about what we wanted. We found that her prices were reasonable for our budget and liked the packages she had available.

We liked her so much that we decided to work with Heather. Heather was very responsive to our e-mails not matter how many questions we had. She was very professional and spoke to us like we were old friends.

In the package that we purchased, we opted to have some engagement photos taken. Heather offered to come up to the Washington D.C. area to have a photo shoot around the city! This worked out really well for us as we wanted to capture how the beginning of our engagement came to be. We felt silly during the photo shoot, but Heather was able to offer us words of encouragement and suggestions for poses. Heather was also open to hear our suggestions.

During the ceremony and reception back in Virginia Beach, Heather was on time and prepared. Both parties had an early morning and Heather and Rob were troopers! Heather took photos with the bride's family while Rob worked with the groom. Again, her professionalism was outstanding. At the reception, Heather took photos on the beach with the wedding party while Rob took photos inside.

When creating the album, the process was simple. We chose the pictures that we wanted and told Heather about any words we wanted in or on the album. Heather took our choices and then sent us drafts of the layout that we were able to make changes to or approve. If we had any questions, Heather was right there to walk us through the steps and offer any advise along the way. Heather also let us know where she was in the process of making our album and the DVDs with all the pictures. They arrived well packaged and we were able to enjoy the items immediately.

All in all, we truly enjoyed working with Heather and would recommend her to anyone!

I've had two babies during the past two years. My husband and I have come together in reverse order, kids first and marriage later. So for our wedding, I put together touches that feel special to us, within what we can manage with such small kids, and in a short time. I was having trouble reconciling this with classic and staged images of the perfect wedding. We really aren't perfect, and we are very tired. Our kids are beautiful and messy and incredibly small. But we are passionate and so happy to be together.

When I saw Heather's pictures, it was the first time that I saw the sorts of things that are valuable and beautiful about us captured by a wedding photographer. Her lens can see real things. I had been counting on it. Knowing Heather was our photographer changed the planning for me. I stopped feeling as though I was doomed to be less than perfect, and could just enjoy myself. Heather's photography was therefore really important to our day, in a way that might not usually be the case. She was able to capture the imperfect beauty in my family.

When it comes to choosing the most important components of your wedding planning, you should put particular emphasis on the selection of your photographer. Do yourself a huge favor and get on the phone with Heather Hughes of Heather Hughes Photography to make an appointment. We were lucky enough to have Ms. Hughes photograph our daughter's wedding on June 2, 2012. Of all the wonderful vendors we had that day, Heather was one of the best. She was on time and friendly but professional. Even though we were running late, she got right to work helping us with last minute items and offering helpful advice to a grateful Mother of the Bride. The entire afternoon and evening, Heather was always, amazingly, in the right place at the right time. In addition, she created for my daughter and her new husband, wonderful images, many of which were so creative in their concept. These were ideas that we never would have thought of ourselves and which have become some of the hallmark photographs that captured that amazing day. We will never be able to thank Heather enough for her talented work, solid work ethic and warm friendship that day. If you don't book her immediately for your wedding, you will be missing the best opportunity to ensure that your wedding is captured through the eyes of this amazing photographer!

She was on time and friendly but professional. Even though we were running late, she got right to work helping us with last minute items and offering helpful advice to a grateful Mother of the Bride. The entire afternoon and evening, Heather was always, amazingly, in the right place at the right time. In addition, she created for my daughter and her new husband, wonderful images, many of which were so creative in their concept. These were ideas that we never would have thought of ourselves and which have become some of the hallmark photographs that captured that amazing day. We will never be able to thank Heather enough for her talented work, solid work ethic and warm friendship that day. If you don't book her immediately for your wedding, you will be missing the best opportunity to ensure that your wedding is captured through the eyes of this amazing photographer! Read less
