I'm a photographer who is passionate about telling the story of your wedding day, your family, or your brand in the most beautiful and meaningful way.
From the way he looks at you as your say your vows, to the directed portraits that show off your custom gown... from adjusting a swaddle on your newborn baby to chasing after him in your backyard- these moments are all part of your legacy and I see it as my purpose in life to lovingly, enthusiastically and beautifully capture them all for you. Because when I take a photo, I know that it's not just for you to enjoy, it's also to tell your story to all the generations to come so that they may one day see how your wedding day looked and felt.
I began professionally photographing weddings and portraits when I was 18, but I've always been the girl with the camera. Being able to freeze a moment in time and to have it preserved forever has always seemed like magic to me. Though photography was a great hobby and and job during my years in college and grad school, I always pictured myself behind the scenes in the entertainment industry. Upon graduating with my M.A. in Communication from USC in 2007 (Fight on!), I realized that I wanted to focus full-time on what I truly loved to do. And so, Heather Kincaid Photographer was officially launched and I never looked back.
In 2011, I met my husband (thank you Match.com!) and we are now the proud parents of two, Charlotte (7) and Everett (4). As a family we spend our free time playing outside and taking weekend adventures to pretty places. Being a mom has enriched my desire to document life even more and has clarified for me how to document images that will be most cherished now and for years to come.
I love to let my images speak for themselves, but when asked to describe my work, I feel the following words best describe the collections of images I strive to deliver to clients:
Sophisticated & TIMELESS
Modern & FUN
natural & candid
and always Pretty
With every wedding, my team and I strive to create not just a few great images, but a full collection of images that will forever remind you how your day looked AND felt. I want to capture the colors of flowers you agonized over during the planning, the detail in your dress that made you fall in love with it, the tears in the eyes of your mom as you walk down the aisle, and the fun reception shots as you and your best friends dance the night away. The portraits are important, the details are important, the candid photos are important... Every gallery I deliver to clients reflects all of these aspects of your wedding day.
Delivering the most beautiful images from your wedding or family shoot is an obvious priority for me, but ensuring that you love the process of working with me is also so important. From our first communication to delivering your final images and album, I want you to feel cared for and enthusiastically happy about every part of your experience.
As a wedding client, you can expect that I will work closely with you and your planner prior to your wedding to develop a timeline that honors your vision for your day and sets up my team and I for success in documenting every aspect. A well prepared photographer is the best photographer, and I put in the time before every wedding to ensure my team and I are well-prepared for your day.
My 17 years of experience in photographing weddings has taught me that the best wedding photographer team wears many hats during a wedding day: we have been known to help bustle dresses, pin on boutonnieres, help planners rearrange seats, and do anything else needed to help the day flow seamlessly. Our priority is always to ensure your day is documented beautifully while ensuring the experience of your day is how you always dreamed it would be.
I'm proud to say that all of my business is derived from referrals from past clients and from planners with whom I've worked before. Please visit my Kind Words page to read what past clients have said about their experience of working with my team and me.
She was there for all the special moments.
She got photos of things that I didn’t
even realize she was there for... I'm so
happy to have those moments documented!
