Hi, I'm Heather!
I'm so happy that you're here!
If you're looking for a Wedding Photographer whose images are bright and vibrant with a personality to match, you've come to the right place!
I'm a wife, mother, naturalist, music enthusiast, thrift store superstar, and right brained optimist.
For starters I love to laugh, and to make others laugh. This probably plays a large role at why I am so successful with what I do. I am an honest people person, and am totally energized by being surrounded by others. I'm also surprisingly a great writer, except for when it comes to writing about myself or my business of course. ;)
In my spare time I love to hike with my dogs, take pictures of my cats, read, write, create, cook, and of course spend time with my amazing family. My husband, Matt, is my everything, and completely rocks my world. Together we have two boys Tyler, 7 and Mason, 4 - they are complete goofballs and light of my life.
We moved back to Akron, Ohio almost two years ago now, after living in the beautiful mountains of Eastern Tennessee for three years. As much as I miss "my mountains" it feels great to be back home. I live in the Highland Square community of Akron, and love being consistently surrounded by different people of all cultures. I am a huge advocate for community, and do whatever I can to help and be involved.
My love for photography started at a very young age, it was a passion of mine that always made me feel alive. In 2011 I chased my own dreams, in result Retro Peacock Photography was born. Fast forward, and I could not be more happy or proud of where myself and my business stands today. It was no surprise to anyone when I decided to pursue photography professionally. I predominately love shooting weddings because I love being such a special part of the best day of someone's life. Not to get extremely teary eyed here, but that is a pretty huge deal. With every wedding I shoot, I capture the raw emotion, love, and excitement their day was surrounded with. It's my job to make sure that when you look at your images 10 years from now, you still can feel that. As much as I take my job and role very seriously, I also throughly enjoy having fun with my clients. True smiles and laughter seriously make an image worth a thousand words, and then some.
Some fun bloopers and behind the scenes! (more to come!!)
I'm a pretty big believer that you can learn a lot about a person from the music they listen to, so here are some of my favs. xo
Believe me... as a HUGE music buff, this was hard to pick out a couple favorites.
