Heather Durham

How do you describe your wedding photography style? Photojournalistic and modern portrait styling, focused on capturing emotion with beautiful and dreamy light.

What is the perfect image from a wedding day? Emotion and in-between moments…All the bridesmaids’ reaction when the bride pulls on her dress for the first time, or mom in the background wiping her eyes after watching the father-bride first look, or the ring bearer in his black tux at the ceremony, getting in the aisle of the all white marble church and doing the worm (this actually happened) while the bride and grooms backs are to their guests. It’s all the emotion-filled moments that make a wedding day. After emotion, I believe beautiful lighting that captures and enhances the mood of the moment is what makes a perfect image.

What would you do if you weren’t a photographer? I would be an interior designer. It was my major in college before I changed it. I’m such a wanna be! I love homes and home design! I get my fix shooting the Dwellings section for Birmingham Magazine.

What did you do before your were a photographer? I was a fashion buyer & marketing director, then later an art director for a magazine publisher. Working with photographers for catalogs and editorial layouts always made me curious about photography, so I decided to learn it. Just before I had my 1st child went freelance and started my own graphic design business, which I did alongside photography, until photography became full time. Proverbs 3:5,6 has always been my favorite Bible verse. The Lord has always been so faithful to direct my paths. All of my work experiences led me to this. It’s my passion.
