what happens when your church doesn’t allow flash photography?

michelle and tom are one of the nicest couples i have ever worked with. they had a fabulous friday wedding. their ceremony was at saint athanasius church, which restricted the use of flash photography. i was able to conquer that obstacle by using the right lenses and i love the natural lights and shadows that are visible when flash is not used. challenges like this often create the most wonderful, emotional images. thank you michelle and tom for allowing me to document your special day!

update august 26, 2009, from the bride michelle:

“Picking your wedding photographer is so important — and Heather made that decision easy.  Heather is not only a very talented photographer who knows her craft expertly, she was also able to capture our wedding day without intruding into it.  Heather knew which parts of the day were especially good for “Kodak moments,” offered suggestions when appropriate, and was very easy and relaxed to work with.  All while being very professional.  My husband and I are camera shy, but Heather made us feel comfortable and has produced pictures that we can’t stop looking at!  We couldn’t be more happy with Heather and our pictures!”
