behind the camera: meet heather

I bawl during PS I Love You & when (spoiler alert) Jenny dies in Forest Gump. I think best friends make for the best life partners. Sweet gestures and being openly & spontaneously affectionate makes my heart melt. I'm a walking contradiction.

I got to marry my best friend between the rows of Almond trees in his family's orchard among our closest friends and family, which was even featured on Grey Likes Weddings!

You can typically find us celebrating fall (our favorite season), walking our pup, out on date night for dinner and a movie, or snuggled up at home catching up on Longmire or the Big Bang Theory.

Dog Mom

I am the proud mom of Carson the corgi. I've had this bundle of joy since he was a little pup and he now resides with me and my husband (who has welcomed him with open arms and lots of treats)

This fur babe has been in front of the camera since he was a pup, so naturally he likes to model. You can follow his kahoots on Instagram (if you're into that kind of thing)

Champagne Enthusiast

Here's the deal: my favorite emoji is the champagne bottle emoji. My favorite celebratory drink is champagne. One of my favorite colors is champagne. We had a champagne welcome bar at our wedding AND champagne cage chairs for escort cards. Of course during our engagement session I brought champagne (and french macaroons) as a prop. 

Basically, my love language is champagne.
