Photographer: Heather Saunders Photography
Royal Oak, Mich.
Grade: A+++++++++++++++++

Heather Saunders is an angel behind the lense.  She has a sense and a way about her that brings the beauty out of you. It makes for breathtaking photos. Most every image she takes is artwork. Really. No lie. No exaggeration.  She is the artist. And she has this innate ability to paint the most beautiful picture of your wedding day. 

When it came to choosing a photographer, I knew I wanted to have chemistry with the person behind the camera. I’m not so comfortable in front of the lense.  I’m just not. So, I wanted to find someone who could make  me feel at ease. I wanted to be natural, relaxed and not even worry that a camera was there. Now, I didn’t have to worry about my husband because he’s the biggest ham any camera has seen. He’s a natural in front of the lense!   (To read my previous posts about my thoughts on wedding photography, click here and here)

Anyway, when I first saw Heather Saunders’ image online, I knew. JUST KNEW. She was the one. I checked out her site and was as smitten as a could get! When I called her and talked to her, she was so very humble as I GUSHED about her work that I knew I would like this lady!  From the moment I met her we gabbed like old school mates.  She’s easy to be around. 

Heather was exactly what I was looking for in a photographer and in a person I wanted to share my day with. (If you think about it, all your vendors share your day – they help MAKE your day. You have to TRUST them.) And, Heather’s photography also was exactly what I was looking for. I didn’t want formal. Staged. Stiff. Traditional. Typical.  Heather is anything but all that! She’s edgy, sylish, relaxed. It’s amazing what she can do!     

We LOVE our wedding pictures.  LOVE them.  The canvas wraps we ordered are impeccable.  Everything she does is perfection. We couldn’t be happier with her.  And, we’ll NEVER stray from her. EVER. 

You must ring her. Check her out.  See for yourself.  And, tell her I sent you over for a chat!

I love Heather my photographer.  She’s AWESOME!  So, the other day I started getting worried that my enagagment pic’s turned out horrible.  Not because I don’t have faith in Heather, but because I’ve been victimized by the camera for years.  (Meaning… I don’t view myself as very photogenic.  Oh, and I’ve been told others don’t either!  HA!  No joke!)

So, I emailed Heather on Friday… Here’s the email trail:


Hi Heather-

So, you have to tell me…  Are there any good ones?  Now I’m worried that I came out all googly-eyed, cause I’m a freakshow in pictures. And, I had the Jenny Granholm emerging on my face and when I took a look at myself after the shoot, I looked like a wreck!  (I sound crazy, don’t I? But I realize this!)

Just wondering…. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek.  (I added the eek for drama!  It made me laugh!)



you are hilarious!  you looked beautiful!  now you girlies are very critcal of yourselves,…  but I think they turned out fabulous.  I should have them to you by weekends end!  For now, this is my FAVORITE!!!!!  xoxoxo  Let me know what you think.

And, I love the pic she sent.  And, my mom loves the pic she sent!  It’s so artsy.  You better believe this bad boy will be hanging in my living room!  And, Heather is right, all of us brides take issue with somthing that others don’t ever really see!  Why?  Cause, we’re all our worst critics!
