Working with Heather exceeded all of my expectations. She took the initiative to meet with my event space coordinator, wedding planner AND rabbi so that she can prepare in advance. Having done the advance work she was prepared on wedding day to know where and what time of day to optimize the architectural beauty of our event space. She knew where to be and was ready to shoot at each one of our important moments and every moment in between. Heather is a delight and a calming person if you are so fortunate to have Heather shoot your event than consider yourself lucky. Now on to the photos...they took our breath away! The number of complements that we received from the photos that she took of our family was truly touching. Heather has a special way of capturing the moment and turning it into the fairytale day that every bride and groom dream about. She is a master at her trade and is clearly following her calling. She will simply make your event day better and will give you the gift of everlasting memories.

I believe there is a reason for everything and it is clear that I was meant to meet Heather so she could capture a very special time of our lives. It’s not just about the memories she captured for us it’s about the memories we made with her as our photographer. It’s an experience we will never forget. The moments she captured in the photos turned out amazing and we couldn’t be any happier with them. It’s safe to say our engagement photos will not be the last photos she gets to take of ours! She is an amazing photographer and person!

I have had the pleasure of knowing Heather for many years, and have always loved her work! Even when she was just starting out, I admired her talent. Throughout the years Heather has become even more amazing at what she does. Growing up, I didn’t know who I would one day pick as a wedding photographer, until I fell in LOVE with a previous wedding Heather photographed. I was OBSESSED with EVERY preview she posted of this beautiful couple’s wedding and immediately knew that one day I HAD to have Heather as my wedding photographer! Low and behold my time came 5 months later. I was engaged, and I am not lying when I say, the VERY first thing I did was message Heather. She was prompt with a reply and just as enthusiastic as I was about my engagement. She also worked wonderfully with the videographer she had met the day of the wedding. During the picture taking process, Heather was very professional and encouraged us to be ourselves. If we weren’t quite sure what pose to do next or what background to stand in front of, she was quick to help and give direction. She even helped me pick which engagement outfit to wear! From expressing how excited she was to photograph our big day to her enthusiasm with sharing our finished product, Heather was so much fun and definitely made us feel special. She is truly amazing at what she does and I promise you will not regret choosing her as your photographer. My husband and I are extremely pleased with our pictures and will treasure them for years to come. I look forward to our future with Heather Dettore Photography.

I have just wanted to tell you something since our last wedding. You did Kelly and Justin Ebel's pictures last March and I just want to thank you for how much interest you showed for Kelly's day! You made some great pictures that really captured the feelings on that day. And the little things mean so much, such as you posting little sneak peeks of pictures with sweet things you said about their wedding and the way you sent the final pictures- it was so exciting to see Kelly open that box with your sweet note. I just want you to know that the pictures you make are great but the little touches mean so much! You are doing a great job! I still have two more daughters so I may call on you again one day! Thanks!

My husband and I chose Heather for our engagement and wedding pictures and it was a fantastic choice! She perfectly captured our personalities with the engagement photos. As for the wedding photos, everyone (friends, family, myself, my husband, random people who saw them on Facebook) was carried away with how the pictures turned out. She managed to make every detail look elegant, every moment gorgeous, and the pictures of the bride and groom, stunning. For anyone considering Heather as their photographer, I believe that no one could capture the beautiful moments of your wedding better!- Not to mention she’s just plain awesome!

Choosing Heather as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made. Our photos are absolutely beautiful and exceeded all of our expectations. These are the photos we get to look back on for the rest of our lives and we couldn't be happier. We were a little nervous because we didn't know how to act in front of the camera, but Heather really allowed us to be comfortable and be ourselves and even gave tons of direction. She really made us feel special throughout the entire process, from expressing how excited she was to photograph our big day to her enthusiasm with sharing our finished product.
She is extremely talented, we are incredibly grateful, and we would without a doubt recommend her to anyone.

Heather started taking pictures of my son Jason when he was just a month old. She has taken his one year pictures and now my maternity pictures. She is always a pleasure to work with! Very easy going and you can tell she loves what she does. I can't wait for her to capture even more of my families memories in the years to come! I can tell you until I'm blue in the face what a great photographer she is, but in the end the true testimony of how I feel is my customer loyalty. I wouldn't keep coming back if I didn't mean it. :)

After becoming engaged, my (then) fiancé and I wanted to plan an elegant but somewhat simple wedding on a feasible budget. We both agreed that pictures were a priority for us. When I met up with Heather, we decided to go with an engagement session, an hour at rehearsal dinner and six hours the day of the wedding. We seriously could not have chosen a better photographer for our budget and our overall envision for our special day that meant so much to us. Heather exceeded our expectations. Each picture (and there was an abundance) came back beautifully and tediously done. We had an outdoor spring wedding with more than 300 guests and Heather did a fantastic job capturing the pictures/moments she and I thought were necessary (and fun ) and it was all done in such a diligent, timely manner. She didn't leave the reception until I felt completely satisfied with what was done on her part that day. We also had a videographer she just met the day of the wedding, who she worked with wonderfully. I felt confident in knowing our wedding pictures were one less thing I had to stress about... which is a wonderful feeling because we all know the "wedding day stress list" is never ending. She definitely put my mind at ease and we received our pictures so quickly after the wedding. Heather was very professional, considerate and a joy to have as a photographer. I would definitely recommend Heather Dettore Photography to every newly engaged couple. Our wedding day was perfect and Heather was a huge part of that. We're looking forward to the next milestones in our life so Heather can capture those beautiful moments, as well. Much love to HDP!
