MAKE
THE
DAY
YOURS

Heather and Mike at Seeking Venture Photo are two of the most amazing people we have ever met. They were incredibly flexible and willing to work with whatever ideas we had for our wedding photographs, and were excellent at making recommendations we hadn't even thought of. They seemed excited at the idea of our adventure wedding and really helped to bring our dreams to life. Meeting them felt more like meeting old friends as opposed to new photographers, and I guarantee they will help make your dreams come true!

I absolutely get it. The thought of planning out any wedding day can be intimidating. However, it should always be free of pressure and constraints. This should not be just an all day photoshoot.

Your wedding should be an experience!

Couples should do exactly what they want for their elopement day.

VENTURE
YOUR
WAY

The Seeking Venture team will provide the guidance needed for a stress-free adventure that you will cherish endlessly.

For every elopement or small wedding I book, Seeking Venture will have up to 100 trees planted in your honor through the Arbor Day Foundation, a partner with the U.S. Forest Service.

We all want to leave nature better than we found it, and this is one small way we can make that happen thanks to you!

PLANT-A-TREE COMMITMENT

I GOT YOU COVERED

Advice & Help Every Step of the Way

The questionnaire I send out will help me understand who you are as a couple and let me hear your wants, vision and dreams! This ensures that I can create the most personalized and meaningful photographs that truly capture your unique relationship.

I really do enjoy every moment I spend researching for you, all in an effort to ensure that you two have the greatest day imaginable. I will spend hours researching, scouting & planning to make you a customized location list, including suggesting backup locations and activity ideas. I'll also assist you with figuring out what permits we may need and will even cover the cost of your photo permit!

This will give you a better idea of "the big picture" & how your day will play out. I'll make sure to do my best to put all your wishes in during our time together.

These two helpful guides will get your prepped & ready! No memorization is required--Refer to them when you need some inspiration with all the different things you can do!

I would love to help you with local vendor suggestions that could assist with your day. There are some crazy talented people out there that could make your day super unique!

We are friendly, professional photographers who want to give you the best day:

You'll receive our personal touch the entire time: 

Our imagery is unlimited

Aw, the memories are forever!

You are not just hiring a random person to take some photos. This is our livelihoods that we have spent endless hours over the years trying to perfect for our couples. You should feel like you are hanging out with a friend, not some stiff, lame photographer who you'll never speak to again because they were outsourced by some photo factory. Which brings us to our next point...

Enjoy the cherished memories of your wedding day for the rest of your lives and have those moments passed down to each generation.

We don't outsource your photos to strangers to do the work for us. We are the ones who edit your photos, not a retouching service charging pennies per image for bad edits. Your photos mean more to us than that.

You will always be given as many photos as we can give you. We curate each wedding to every couple and would never put a cap on the amount of images we send you, nor limit the amount you are allowed to download from your gallery.

John & Bill

Hey, it's me!

Hello there I'm Heather--Your friendly guide for a wonderful day planned by all of us! The thought of giving couples a once-in-a-lifetime experience means the world to me and it's truly an honor to be your photographer.

It's my intention to grant you and your partner the opportunity to create your own day without feeling confined by the restrictions that the world places on couples planning their weddings.

I am a follower of Leave No Trace and proud to help educate couples on the importance of honoring these guidelines for an even better day that will not leave a negative impact on our planet.

READ MORE ABOUT YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

"Heather is a wonderful photographer that we would recommend to anyone. She made us so comfortable and she was the most perfect photographer. She managed to capture the best moments and even included some very funny photos. We love her positive attitude and great energy."

Carito & Carlos

"Heather was the first, and then the only photographer we spoke to for our wedding! Awesome, flexible, talented, fun, and professional - can't think of what else you would need from a photographer! She stayed with us all day, and captured SO MANY amazing moments from the wedding!"

Angela & Jose

"On the day of the wedding, she was ready to go with positivity and helpfulness. She was a complete professional at taking pictures & initiative on great shots I hadn't even thought of...she also took the lead on putting on each of the boutonnieres! Heather took every shot we asked, and went out of her way to suggest photos."

M&J

"I found Michael when looking for a photographer to take my wedding photos in Hawaii on my honeymoon. I'm so glad I found him, he captured everything I could have dreamed of and so much more! He is really talented at what he does!"

Galilee & Colin

How would you describe your photographic style?

Many photographers describe their style as either 'light & airy' or 'dark & moody'. We don't place ourselves into either category and think it's sort of silly to do so. Style is a lot more than the 'look' of a photo. For us, our style is a laid back journalistic approach. We are there to not only document, but offer guidance when necessary in order to let the moment unfold. We are a bit traditional in the sense that we think it's important to take getting ready pictures, as it's a huge moment before you begin this important day. Being able to capture your love story the authentic way is a huge part of our style. As we edit, we keep our photographs true-to-life in terms of color and proper exposure as well. Take a look at our work and decide for yourself if you like our style! 

What happens if there is bad weather? 

Aww nature! Sometimes it's not 'perfect.' So what if it's drizzling? Let's embrace it! However, if the weather gets so severe that our lives are in danger or our gear can get ruined, we will move to our Plan B that we will have previously agreed upon during our planning sessions.

Do we have to go hiking for our elopement?

Not at all! Your elopement should be whatever you want it to be. We consider ourselves adventure photographers, but your adventure can be literally anything. It is not a requirement to hike miles on a trail for your wedding day. Often times we can always find easily accessible spots right off the road that do not require that much effort to get to so you can still enjoy some killer scenery!

Get in touch with me below so I can send you all the details!
