It's nice to meet you

 

I'm Heather Birnie. I’m a documentary wedding photographer who lives on a farm in West Wales and I’m a sucker for the outdoors, adventure, meeting new people and of course, weddings. I care about real emotions, capturing intimate moments and creating truly memorable photographs for you to cherish for the rest of your lives.

I don’t do posed, I don’t do awkward; I just do natural and unstaged wedding photographs that flow with your day.

I welcome bookings from all over the UK and further afield, so please, tell me about your plans. Whether it’s a forest wedding, a classical country house wedding, a destination wedding or an elopement with your nearest and dearest, I’d love to hear more. 

Please head down to my contact page to get in touch.

Weddings

 
 
Heather photographed our wedding and we couldn’t have wished for someone more perfect. She fitted into our day like a glove and the shots are just mesmerising. We can’t recommend her enough, so lovely and friendly whilst being completely professional and getting amazing shots. Heather was our dream photographer. We feel like we have gained a new friend!

Add a pre-wed shoot

From £250

I really love meeting with my lovely bride and grooms before the big day comes around, it’s great to get to know you before hand and I love hearing about your plans so I can get really excited about all the little details with you! As someone else that gets a bit awkward in front of the camera (maybe that’s why I’m behind it!?), I am a real advocate of pre-wedding shoots to get rid of any pre-wedding photo-nerves. We’ll get to know each other better, I’ll get to see you in front of the camera, and in turn adjust my way of working to make you more relaxed. You’ll have lots of natural and romantic photographs, and when it comes to the big day, you can relax knowing we’ve already got our style together covered.

Add a second shooter

From £250

Safe in the knowledge you’ll have lots of great bridal preparation photos, but hang on a minute, the groom deserves the same treatment too!? Leave it with me. A second shooter will cover the boys getting ready, the ceremony from the back, guests mingling whilst I am taking your group shots and more angles throughout the day.
