“We worked with Heather for our engagement shoot and our wedding at City Winery this past fall. Not only is her work absolutely amazing, but she was such a joy to work with. She connected with me and my wife on a personal level and was able to capture both of our personalities to help us relive our perfect day forever. After talking to our family and friends, they mentioned that they didn’t notice Heather and her assistant once throughout the reception, they were able to blend in, and still find us in our moment. We would absolutely refer her to any of our friends getting engaged in the future.”
“I can’t say enough great and true things about Heather. My family worked with Heather for family portraits at our new home with our 18 month old daughter (and my husband who generally dislikes being photographed). It could have been a recipe for disaster, but Heather made it easy and even FUN. My husband is so thrilled with the result that HE is asking when we can call her again. Heather was easy to schedule, easy to contact, came to our house, wooed our toddler into taking amazing pictures, and got our images to us with a quick turn around. She was very affordable for what you get. We will likely never bother hiring another photographer again and I have recommended her to every friend I have getting married or taking family portraits. Thank you, Heather!”
“Heather is absolutely amazing and talented. We met with eight photographers in the Chicagoland area during our wedding planning process, but when we sat down with Heather, we felt an instant connection. Heather takes the time to get to know her clients and is remarkably patient. She worked with us to get the most amazing snowy engagement photos, and even met with us in-person prior to the wedding to make sure that she knew exactly what we wanted. Her online system for payments is also extremely convenient.
Our wedding photos came out beautifully. People are still talking about them! Heather and her assistant (unfortunately, her usual assistant Christine was not available on our wedding day, so there was a different second photographer) were able to capture the entire day, down to the very last detail. We had to change our outdoor photography locations last minute due to rain, and Heather was incredibly helpful. She worked with our driver to make sure we went to locations that showcased Chicago, but kept us safe from the rain. We highly recommend Heather DeCamp Photography!
Thanks so much for everything! -Aileen + Ed”
“I rarely write reviews unless I’m absolutely “wowed” by something and Heather and her team blew me away. When the wedding planning process started, the one thing that was incredibly important to me was the photography. I found Heather and immediately upon meeting her, I knew that I wanted her to photograph our wedding. First of all, she was so quick to my inquiry about her availability. Then, she thought it would be a good idea to have a phone conversation before we actually met in person. I really appreciated that because that allowed us to talk about what was important to me and see if we were a good fit. When we met, she was bubbly and energetic, easy to get along with it, and just a fun person overall.
We had our engagement photos done by Heather, and I loved how even though I would tell her the locations we wanted to go, she offered her opinion as to other cool places nearby, and some of those ended up being our favorite shots. Also, you don’t just meet with Heather and not talk to her until the day of your wedding, we kept in contact throughout the year and little things here and there and I knew I would be comfortable with her on the day of the wedding.
On the actual day of the wedding, Heather and her team were punctual and went right to work. While all the girls were getting ready, Heather took the time to get some amazing detail shots. There were moments where we were in a rush so I would say, “let’s just forget about the bridge.” Heather insisted that we stop by 5 minutes, and they are some of my favorite shots. I’m so grateful that she had her opinion and I listed to them! Honestly, other than the pictures where the bridal party was posing for pictures, you wouldn’t even know that Heather and her team were there because they weren’t in your face all night. We were able to enjoy our night without feeling like we were on same reality tv show. When we got our pictures back, I believe I wrote her right away to tell her that they were AMAAAAAAAZZZZIIIIINNNNNGGG!!!!!!!! You wouldn’t have ever guessed that she took some of the pictures that she did, because she was so discreet, but I’ve never seen such beautiful and artistic shots. We are incredibly happy with how everything turned and I would recommend Heather to anyone!!”
Heather was able to fit us in at short notice, and we are so lucky to have been able to work with her. She was fun, energetic, and extremely patient with our 1 year old girl. We quickly scouted out the best locations both in our house and around the neighborhood, then she began snapping away for a very full session. Several outfit changes and scenery changes later (along with some great light and fall colors for us), and we knew we captured all we could need. Our little girl really enjoyed “working” with Heather, and the evidence is in the work. My wife and I also really enjoyed her suggestions and encouragement. The pics turned out perfectly, and we would be very happy to work with her again. Highly recommended!
