Heather Scharf Photography is based out of San Francisco, but Heather will travel far and wide to capture LOVE. Contact her studio for more information on prices and packages.

"Working with Heather is so fun as she is full of energy and enthusiasm for what she does. Her personality is addicting and it feels so good knowing my photographer is not only talented but also passionate about what she does..."

"My Fiance was not excited about doing engagement pictures, but by the end of our session with Heather, he could not stop talking about how fun it was! Heather is so easy to get along with and is seriously hilarious! I think our pictures turned out so well becuase she has a way of making you forget that you are in front of a camera."

"Choosing Heather to do our wedding was the best decision we made. She captured so many moments that I had forgotten about, as well as moments I wasn't around for, which really helped complete the story of the day for me. She not only has a creative eye like non other, but her images have so much emotion in them that my husband and I both cried when we watched our wedding slideshow that she customized for us."

"We knew right away she was the right choice during our engagement session when she had a huge smile on her face as she snapped away...we felt like our day was just as important to her as it was to us" Read less

Since our wedding is going to be out-of-state, I had to choose a different photographer for our engagement session. Heather was nothing but a pleasure to work with. She's very personable, gives great direction but isn't bossy. She's also very reasonably priced for her kind of work. I cannot say enough great things about her. She definitely OVER-delivers.

Heather handled photography for my church wedding and reception on Nov. 22, 2014, in Rancho Mirage, CA. Not only was she incredibly easy to work with, super responsive, detailed and professional, but she was like my most trusted guide and advisor on my wedding day. I thought I knew all the photos I wanted for my wedding day, but when all the photos I had planned were taken Heather stepped in and suggested additional photos of me and my individual bridesmaids, additional photos of the wedding party and other photos I would never have thought to get and am glad I now have.
In fact, from the moment Heather stepped into my parent’s home for our “getting ready” photos, I felt comfortable that Heather was in charge. And this is despite the fact that I had never met her in-person prior to that day!
Best of all, our photos turned out beautifully and capture all the important people in mine and my husband’s life that day.
I would recommend Heather to anyone looking for a talented, warm and confident wedding photographer for their big day. She is a true professional.

When my fiance and I first met Heather we loved her outgoing, bubbly and hard-working personality from the start. We met with a few photographers and had no doubt in our minds that Heather was our gal! We were confident that she would go above and beyond and we feel lucky to have found her.

She's easy going, but at the same time will go to whatever lengths it takes to get a shot. For our engagement photo shoot, we went up to Russian Hill and she was shooting in the street in between cable cars and car traffic...anything to get the perfect shot!

Heather was beyond professional during our wedding and her 2nd shooter was so easy to work with as well! She made sure that we stuck to our timeline and that we got all of the shots we had requested. Her creative eye and attention to detail was evident throughout the day.

We received a few initial photos within a week or so of the wedding and were blown away with how amazing they were...we were on the last night of our honeymoon and it was such an awesome surprise to view those together on our last night. We couldn't wait to see the blog post and received it just about a week later. I was tearing up as I scrolled through the pictures...they were absolutely breathtaking. I couldn't believe that just two weeks after our wedding we had so many photos so quickly!

Thank you, Heather, for capturing our special day and all of the love, fun and personalities to go with it....these are memories we will have for a lifetime and we are so grateful to have them captured so beautifully! I would highly recommend Heather to any couples looking for a very talented, genuine & professional photographer!

Heather Scharf was the best decision of my life....besides saying yes to my husband when he proposed =P. We got married this past November in the Silicon Valley but we were planning the wedding from New York where we lived. I was already nervous about the whole planning process since we were across country and couldn't meet with all of our vendors in person before selecting them but Heather was so easy and understanding. She skyped with us so we could speak face to face and we fell in love with her and her work almost instantaneously. And when we did our engagement photo shoot it only reconfirmed our decision. One, she made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Two, she gave great direction on how to pose and three the pictures were aaaaaamazing. Heather not only has a good eye for photography but she listens to want you want and gives it to you while incorporating her own creative vision. My friends and family loved our pictures and could not stop talking about how good they were. And our actually wedding day was more of the same experience. She worked so well with everyone in our bridal party. Our bridal party was huge but Heather was able to get all the portraits we wanted before our time expired at the church. Then at the reception, she was nonstop, capturing every moment of our special day. Again, our pictures were everything we could have wanted and more. My advice for all you planning brides in the bay area, do yourselves and future husbands a favor and hire Heather.

There were so many amazing people that helped make our wedding a day we will cherish til we are old, snarky, and forgetful. But we would be remiss not call out Heather specifically. We could not have asked for a more talented, passionate, and hilarious individual to capture all the incredible moments from that day.

My husband and I feel exceptionally lucky to have found her when we did. Because a talent like her will soon be one who is booked out years in advance and beyond our price range. Can't recommend her more highly. Check her blog here of our wedding, be amazed by her talents, and plan a major life event so you have reason to book her as well.

Heather was the best vender we worked with when planning our wedding! Her photography was amazing which seems like the most important reason we hired her to photograph our wedding but in addition she was really easy to work with due to her quick communication, creativity and fun personality. We had an outrageous idea to shoot our engagement photos in a river, and she took her shoes off and jumped in with us to get the shots. On
the wedding day she eased our nerves and got the most important pics that we will cherish forever. Our family and guests loved her, she stayed at the wedding longer than she was contracted, and then had the wedding photos edited and to us within 2 weeks; Right in time for us to view when we arrived home from the honeymoon! I would 100% recommend her for weddings and plan to use her again for family photos when that time comes.

(Groom's Response) Heather was AMAZING! She is the most friendly, genuine, and professional person I have met. She captured every important moment, even the candid moments that my wife and I shared, without even knowing she was photographing! Her photos allow us to relive our special day, every day. Couldn't have been more impressed with Heather, and will definitely use her again! HIGHLY RECOMMEND HEATHER SCHARF PHOTOGRAPHY!

We hired Heather to shoot our wedding at Wildwood Acres Resort and we were so amazed with the quality, creativity and professionalism Heather displayed during our wedding. She is truly a gifted photographer. My family and friends even complimented me after the wedding at how professional Heather was and at how aware she was of what was going on. To give you an example, during our ceremony, we invited a band to play music. During this time, my husband's nephew went into the bushes and started playing air drums. My niece joined him. It was a simply perfect moment which lasted about 2 minutes. Heather was shooting us at the alter but her creative eye immediately saw and captured this precious moment on camera. I am not sure you will find such quality and creativity anywhere else. Heather is fun, flexible, full of joy and yet able to assemble and dissemble and reassemble 3 large families of over 70 people for family photos within a matter of 30 minutes. We are so happy. I am sure you will be too!!
