Have you ever stood in the presence of a piece of fine art — both calmed and captivated by its history, curious to learn of the stories? Art has an astonishing way in which it hushingly speaks in its brush strokes, colors and even of the dust that silently collects on its frame.

Destination weddings have a similar style — with the handpicked details that are interwoven with love, family and exploration. I specialize in fine art wedding photography for weddings like these — guiding travelers with soul and spirit through an experience that is simultaneously grounded and elevated. 

Wedding narratives, told through art

For intimate, luxury weddings throughout the world

Lifestyle Photography

The moments in between are the ones that should be remembered. Let’s stop to document you two, just the way you are.

European countrysides, windswept California mountains — there are places and moments in time that leave you breathless. Your love has a feel akin to this. Like traveling to your favorite place in the world — loving and being with your person is familiar, and yet awe-inspiring. Let’s create a similar experience for your destination wedding — crafting moments that feel cultivated and somehow well-traveled. I’ll document it all with an exclusive, editorial approach that makes you feel like nothing else in the world matters.

The destination is only the beginning

I’ll be at your side ensuring that this wedding isn’t just the next big thing, it’s the story you’ll be telling for the rest of your lives.

What is fine-art photography?

If this is your first introduction to fine art photography, this term simply alludes to a craft rooted in conveying emotion and meaning. It takes the craft of photography and turns it into creative expression. In my world, I use film and digital mediums to capture an authentic, true to life look that masterfully portrays the emotions of your wedding.

“Heather has been incredible to work with! She is an amazing resource and guides you every step of the way in the booking & planning process. Not only that, she helps you craft a timeline around capturing and creating those special moments and really works to listen to your vision! She has been amazing and so extremely helpful during the challenging circumstances of this year.

Cassia + Matthew | Palm Springs Wedding + Honeymoon Session in Maldives

“Selecting Heather Anderson Photography for our wedding day was hands down the best decision we made. My husband and I were so impressed with Heather's talent, including her ability to shoot both digital and film photos. She is a true artist and created some of the most beautiful double exposure prints from our big day- it was so fantastic.

 -Lara + Stephen | From the east coast to San Diego

“Heather Anderson was amazing from start to finish. We are so glad she was able to capture our engagement and wedding photos. When I look back at her photos of our wedding day, I love that they look exactly how I remember it. Heather was the one photographer that I felt could truly capture the joy of that day.”

Kim | Winery wedding

YOUR LOVE IS A MASTERPIECE AND YOUR WEDDING 
WILL BE JUST AS ELOQUENT IN BOTH ART AND FEELING.

I’ll meet you somewhere beautiful — intertwining your love with a destination.

That’s what I do — using both film and digital photography to document your day. Film has a one-of-a-kind, stunning aesthetic that cannot be replicated with modern techniques. This is why I use both mediums!

What is a hybrid photographer?

Back to FAQ

Each medium has their own unique strengths. I love using film for intimate couple photos and details — it lends itself to classic, timeless images. Digital, on the other hand, is best for fast-paced moments on the dance floor. I have mastered both mediums.

Why do you use film and digital?

Back to FAQ

Yes, for weddings that are more of an event than a tradition, second shooters are an integral part of the day. One of us will be focused on the finished, magazine-style editorial photos and the other will be focused on all the moments in between. This ensures that your thoughtfully planned wedding is fully captured. And of course, my second shooters are a part of my team, photographers that I know and trust, and not arbitrary, last-minute hires.

Is a second shooter included?

Back to FAQ

I know, and this is exactly why you’ll receive sneak peeks in just about 24-48 hours after your day. Before your full gallery is delivered, those images go on a journey of their own — with film processing at the lab and thoughtful editing. I’ll send over the online link as soon as your photos are ready — which is normally 4-6 weeks after the wedding.

Back to FAQ

When will we see the images? We already can’t wait.

Travel costs are included in the price. I have three packages — one for Temecula, CA weddings, one for US weddings and another for worldwide weddings. This makes it as easy as possible with a flat fee and no complicated travel arrangements. Inquire here for full pricing.

Back to FAQ

What are the destination wedding photographer travel fees?

Yes. I am more than happy to send details from my liability insurance coverage to your venue if it is needed.

I’ll ask to meet you via video consultation so that we can make sure it’s a good fit. From there, you’ll receive a tailored proposal with your custom collection details. You’ll book with a simple retainer and online contract. You can learn more about the process here.

FIRST LOOK OR NO FIRST LOOK?

If you’re considering a first look for your destination wedding, take a detour to my blog. I’ve created an entire rundown on why a first look might be one of the most memorable parts of your wedding.

The Itinerary

Take your love on a journey

beginning with a deep breath and some pointers from a photographer who knows the ins and outs of destination weddings

Inquire here to receive complete pricing. I’ll also send a link to book a complimentary consultation. This needs to be a good fit as we have an intimate excursion ahead of us.

01.

Make it official with a 50% retainer. Upon booking, you’ll receive a comprehensive welcome guide, mailed directly to you.

02.

Share the details. Along the way, I’ll send questionnaires to learn more about you, your vendors and your plans for the wedding day.

03.

Book your complimentary engagement session. This is where you’ll learn natural poses and get comfortable in front of the camera prior so your wedding day can feel more intentional and composed, as opposed to stiff. The photos from this session will be printed in a fine art guest book.

04.

As your destination wedding nears, I’ll touch base with you, arrive at the location 1-3 days in advance and guide you through every moment on your wedding day. With VIP shot lists in hand and my second shooter on location, we won’t miss a thing.

05.

Inquire for your date

Receive a sneak peek within 48 hours and look forward to your full gallery within 4-6 weeks. We must be patient as your film scans take time to process. It is so worth it!
