My name is Heather Danielle Nelson and I currently live in Strongsville, Ohio. I graduated cum laude from Ohio University with a degree in Commercial Photography, and I currently specialize in wedding photography, maternity and newborn photography. Wedding photography is so important to me, it's amazing to share in such an important day in people's lives. I love connecting with my couples and catching those special moments that not everyone sees. I also pride myself on finding new perspectives to get a unique shot. I have been known to climb a tree or stand on a ledge to capture that perfect moment. When shooting couples, I always take a few shots in each position, and just when they think I'm ready to move on, they let their guard down and I snap one more. That's when I capture the magic.
In addition to my dedication to capture an amazing shot, you will also find that I am extremely invested in the editing process and strive to produce nothing less than a high quality end result. Naturally, I do my best to capture the best possible photograph in camera, but it isn't always possible with the ever changing variables present in wedding photography. Not to mention, all of the little things that cannot be controlled in camera, such as skin imperfections and exit signs. Check out my Before and After Gallery if you have an interest in seeing some samples of the extensive editing I do to every wedding I photograph. My passion for my career as a wedding photographer drives me to go above and beyond what most would expect to ensure that you are getting beautiful, quality photographs that are true to life, just subtly improved upon.
Hiring the right photographer for your wedding day is one of the most important things to consider when planning a wedding. I understand the weight of my role in your wedding day and it is something that I don't take lightly! I could elaborate on this, but I would rather you read about it from couples that have been in your position and can tell you firsthand about their experience working with me.
I truly love wedding photography so, in the past, I didn't have much interest in shooting anything much other than weddings. Therefore, I have only done maternity and baby sessions for friends and family, but now I am wanting to expand and do more sessions like this! My interest has really grown in this area, maybe it's baby fever! Contact me to schedule your session today!
Some more information about me, aside from weddings, I have a passion for still life photography. I love Mexican food and I have been teaching myself how to cook. I got married recently, therefore, apart from being in the wedding industry, I know exactly what it feels like to be a bride and be going through the wedding planning process from your perspective. I feel that being a wedding photographer really helped me in planning my wedding and being a bride really helped me in understanding my clients on a new level.
Now that you know a little about me, I would love to learn about you! Contact me, I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have or just chat about your special day!
