I am typically not the type to trash someone on the internet but when it comes down to such a important day in your life I am choosing to share my personal experience. .. At first it was pretty good, had a great feeling about Heather. She was very responsive to my emails and the random questions I had.
Was about a week to two weeks to our wedding we spoke about location and trying to plan a time frame. For someone who has never been married I did ask for her advice. ..nothing
Wedding day arrives and yet to hear back, was praying and hoping she'll show up. She did.
Now when I think of a photographer I put them in the same sort of level as an artist, someone who has an eye to capture beauty. None of that happened, I was expecting someone who had the seemed to know what to do. My brother who is a actual real photographer was telling her what to do, kept pointing out how horrible the shadows were...in which he was right. Biggest complaint I had was her, multiple people did. Was rather embarrassing for me that my aunt had to step in and ask her to take pictures.
As for the "30 day" period she claims, that didn't happen. I was unable to get a hold of her. Website was down and number disconnected.
My mother literary drove to her house! She collected a cell number by which we used to get any contact with her.
After doing so, she told us she will mail us a copy that week. .. after a week goes by and again unresponsive. .my new husband showed up after work and demand the pictures.
The disc that is was copied on didn't work, it was obviously used and ruined. Again, he had to go back. Finally we have them.
As for a recent bride, this was one of the most devastating things that has ever happened. Can't recapture that moment ever. Quality isn't great, I guess you get what you pay for.

The best advice is run. Do not use her. Going through the same thing as the last person went through. Heather does not have a good eye for spacing getting people in the right order. She has no suggestions when asked about poses. I would use someone else. She is far from award winning. Also do not use her DJ she partners with unless you are into having the wrong songs played during your ceremony etc

Heather has an eye for great composition and lighting, her photographs are beautiful. A piece of advice we were given was to make sure we like our photographer since they spend the whole day with you, so we interviewed several. Heather was incredibly pleasant and competent without being arrogant or irritating. She has a very calm and reassuring presence as well as a good sense of humor. She met with us, showed us entire wedding shoots of hers, prints, and samples of what all her ala cart options look like.

Her prices are comparable to others in the area. We appreciated about her flexibility in her packages. We let her know our bottom line and exactly what we needed; she was able to not only accommodate but exceed our needs.

Our engagement session was relaxed and easy; she often had the shot before we even knew she was ready. She was great at catching candid moments. The ease in which she manages her camera and adjusts to lighting keeps things moving along without delay. She comes incredibly prepared to ensure she never misses the moment.

On our wedding day Heather coordinated with our other venders and kept things moving along nicely. We didn’t have to worry about time or coordinating anything, Heather was on top of it all! She was great at corralling our wedding party for photos and had many fun ideas for pictures. She was so great at paying attention to the little things, like remembering the kids’ names so she could get their attention and watching for the boy’s shirt that seemed to constantly come un-tucked.

Heather was very timely with getting images back to us! She designed our guest book in record time and we got so many compliments on it.

If we had to do it all again we would definitely go with Heather for our wedding photography. We whole heartedly recommend her and hope to use her for our future life events!

Heather was awesome and fit perfectly everywhere we needed her to. Her flexibility for the only 4 hours we needed was awesome. She lent us her extra tripod so my brother-in-law could videotape the ceremony. She came up with really neat, creative ways to piece together props to make one-of-a-kind photos. I was so anxious to show off my wedding photos-i knew no one else had any like this. She was very helpful-she even helped me with my dress and putting on my shoes! Everyone remarked how nice she was and I really appreciated how personable she was and did anything we asked of her. I couldn't be happier.

Heather was AMAZING... Not only was she there to take pictures but she helped keep things in line and on the go! Her pictures are great and well worth the money... (They say that's all you have left when it's all said and done) SO MONEY DOES NOT MATTER. I will have her do my family pictures and much more. Thank you Heather, you made are wedding day a day we will never forget.

We are so happy that we choose Heather Rene' Studios for our engagement photos and for our wedding photography. Not only was she completely professional but she is creative, vibrant and full of life; qualities that were reflected in her photographs. She has a keen eye for finding the beauty in every moment and we are so appreciative of all her hard work. We absolutely would work with her again for all of our special occasions. We also would highly recommend the premium photography package with D.J. The two truly worked as a team to keep the wedding reception flowing.

Heather was our photographer for our wedding on 11-21-2009 in Portland, OR. Her service was second to none! My wife and I couldn't have been happier. We would highly recommend her to anyone planning a wedding or that may be in need of a photographer! Her services are affordable, professional and she has a great personality and work ethic. It was a true pleasure to have her photograph our special day.

Heather is a seasoned professional. She looks young, but she is a great photographer. She is very friendly and makes you feel at ease when she is working. We did not have to give her any instructions on the day of the wedding. She was everywhere and took pictures of everything and everyone. The candid shots were fabulous! I am hiring her to shoot my moms 75th birthday party in May and cant wait to see the results. Great price and awesome pictures.

Heather was so great to work with. She was always returning my calls and emails immediately and had some really great ideas. Her photos turned out great; she's really grown as an artist since her first season. I do wish we had more time for photos and our creativity level wasn't entirely where I wanted it to be, but that's 99.9% due to our family and wedding party. Overall we are very pleased with our photos and it's by far the best bang for your buck!!!

Heather Rene captured my wedding beautifully!! Everyone who has looked at the pictures were impressed at the quality and variety of photos she took. She went above and beyond the day of and kept things very organized. They arrived early to check out the property and consult with me about what was going on (punctuality is huge for me). She was professional and allowed me and my bridal party to be as unique as we wanted to be. Thank you Heather!!!!

I loved the previous weddings Heather photographed that were on her website. I am a little disappointed in my pictures she took of my wedding in that there weren't any pics of my guests or very few, and there weren't any pics of the room all decorated and no pics of the wedding site outdoors. I should have been more explicit of what I wanted her to shoot I guess. I want to get dressed up again and have someone take pics of me and my husband at the park!

Heather Rene' Studios was amazing! We needed a photographer and only had a week to find one, and we were on a very tight budget! We found Heather and she met with us the next day! She worked with us and made sure we were getting what we wanted and gave us $100 Off! She was such a relief and did such a great job. The best part was she had all of the pictures done and ready to see on her website just days later! I would definitely recommend her to everyone!

Heather was absolutley a godsend on our big day. She did everything I asked of her with a smile on her face. Then she provided excellent service before during and after the celebration. She made us all feel at ease in front of the camera, when we knew she was there. During the ceremony she was so discreet and professional. When we saw the proof book, we were beyond thrilled. To leisurally pick our photos and have family and friends see the many many beautiful options was so wonderful. We have told lots of friends about Heatherrenrstudios, and we wish her much sucsess. She has a great eye and is very good with many different personalitys in wedding party. Thank you
