Testimonials

Wedding Photography in Seattle Thank You
We are truly blessed to have worked with so many people over the past few years.  We know that each of our customers has contributed in some way, shape or form to where we are today – and to be honest we couldn’t have done it without them.  Looking back to our very first wedding we photographed for hire, we’ve come a long way from that one day back in August, 2004.  But each wedding we’ve photographed has taught us something important.  That is no matter what the job we’re on or how many customers we have, nothing is more important than the individuality of each customer.  So, with that in mind we’d like to share some of the feedback we’ve received from our clients over the past few years.  It’s easy to tell you how good of a job we’ll do for you.  And it’s just as easy to show you some really cool pictures and tell you we’ll do the same job for you as we’ve done for many others in the past.  But we figured you’ve already got that part figured out.  So instead we’ll let  our current & past customers tell you.<!–column–>

 

We treat each customer as a friend.  And our relationship with you doesn’t end once we deliver on our commitment to you.  We hope that by hiring us to photograph your wedding or portrait session, that you’ll call us for other things that may come up in the future.  We also hope that you’ll tell your friends.

Here are just a few of the “thank you’s” we’ve received over the years.

 

I wanted to reach out to you and let you know how much we LOVED the photos from our engagement session last month! We are so happy with how natural we look and especially how beautiful all the colors turned out, and just the quality of the pictures in every way! We have gotten so many compliments on the pictures we’ve shared and we’re pretty sure it’s not because we’re destined to be models 🙂 Anyways we will definitely be recommending you to anyone we can think of and just wanted to say thank you for doing such an incredible job and making sure we had such a positive experience!

Heather and Ryan were exceptional! Their professionalism, talent, wit, and fun personalities made our photo sessions enjoyable, fun, and memorable! Our photos speaks volumes of their talent and skills. We are extremely pleased with how exquisite our photos turned out, and we also received them in about a week! We have friends who still didn’t receive their wedding photos after 3 weeks!! Last but not least, Heather and Ryan are definitely reasonably priced. We will recommend Heather and Ryan to all our friends for sure!

Heather and Ryan are a pleasure to work with! Professional, yet fun and relaxed, they immediately put you at ease. They even manage to get pictures of my busy children who don’t like to sit still. We won’t do pictures with anyone else! Beautiful work!

I loved working with Heather and Ryan. The value for what you get is just what we needed and for two photographers on our wedding day – totally worth it. Heather even did our engagement shoot which turned out great. I knew from the moment I met her that we were going to select Events by Heather & Ryan. I felt so comfortable knowing that our photographs would be in their hands. When I received the edits from our wedding, they were perfect. There were only a couple of shots that we didn’t get, which was my fault for not providing a shot list – but I am more than happy with the shots we did get. Even though Heather was not able to make it to our wedding, they still provided a second photographer who was just as fun to work with. I would recommend Events by Heather and Ryan to anyone looking for a great photographer at a great price!

We absolutely could not have been happier with Heather and Ryan. They made our day perfect! They not only took some of the most beautiful photographs I have ever seen, they helped to make our wedding day go smoothly. Heather helped with getting ready processes and gave advice on things I never would have thought of (such as deodorant on inner thighs!) and was the only person who could figure out how to bustle my dress after the ceremony! They took their time in making sure that all the pictures had the perfect lighting, shadows etc. They even posted a morning blog on your Facebook page with around 20 of their favorite photos, which we thought was really unique, and was a fun thing to look at for the morning after the wedding. We got all our pictures back within a week after the wedding (way sooner than we expected considering there were thousands of them!). We even rented a photo booth from them which was a huge hit at the wedding with our guests. They were an absolute joy to have at our wedding and made the entire photography process fun and enjoyable for everyone. Our family still won’t stop talking about what a joy they were to have around and we would one hundred percent recommend them to anyone!

You will not regret your decision to hire Heather and Ryan! My husband and I could not have been happier with our photos from our wedding and our engagement session. Ryan got the flu on our wedding day but Ivy stepped up and filled in right away and she and Heather were AMAZING!!!!! They were so fun, so funny, and so good with our young ring bearer. They both had a way of completely relaxing me on my wedding day. They thought of creative/out of the box shots, they got all the classic formal shots, and they provided an awesome photo booth! They stayed until the very end and got every moment. Also, Heather was more than just our photographer, she was willing to do anything that needed to be done. She assisted my mom at the church before the ceremony when the staff at the church were MIA. When it was time to bustle my dress, she got right to it and figured out my complicated bustle. I got MULTIPLE comments throughout the night about how awesome our photographers were. “Where did you find them? They are awesome!” and “your photographers are so much fun!”
And talk about fast! We got a sneak peak of our shots the day after our wedding and then all of the rest of the shots came a week later!! I must admit that I was very nervous about hiring a photographer because I knew we would have these pictures for the rest of our lives but hiring them was one of the best decisions I made about the entire wedding (if not THE best decision :))

Simply AMAZING! I am over the moon happy about selecting HR Northwest Photographers to capture every moment at our wedding and they WAY exceeded our expectations! They made the entire day so much fun and allowed us to have the BEST time possible taking pictures outside in chilly November. They eased my nerves before the ceremony and really allowed me and my husband to relax and enjoy. Heather helped in the planning process with great tips and suggestions for timeline and about transportation to/from pike place market. I absolutely loved them and recommend them to anyone looking for photographer….in fact, we have already decided they will be the photographers at my sisters wedding (whenever that will be). We also had the he photo booth and that was so much fun and our guests loved the printouts and I cannot wait to get the digital copy of all pictures taken in the booth! They were truly the BEST and I am so lucky that they were at my wedding to capture every special moment. Thank you HR Northwest Photographers for making my day THAT MUCH MORE SPECIAL 🙂

Heather and Ryan are absolutely amazing. Heather is extremely passionate about her work and she has a natural gift to make you feel at ease, even when the world is spinning around you. Heather & Ryan were extremely responsive and were always available to answer our questions before the wedding. My husband and I booked them on the spot after meeting them and that was the best decision we made. Our pictures came out amazing…and very quickly might I add. Our wedding was on a Saturday and a blog was up the very next morning. They must not sleep because they didn’t leave until around midnight and by 8am, our blog was waiting for us. The rest of our pictures followed less than a week later and they were beautifully edited and put into categories for us.

I highly recommend Heather and Ryan for your wedding. They are big enough to be professional, yet small enough to keep it personal. THANK YOU HEATHER & RYAN !!!!

HR Northwest Photography captured our wedding without fail. We could not have been more pleased with their performance.
We had so many little things we wanted phtographed and of course everyone was super busy for the big day. But no issue because our amazing photographers were on point and got every moment caught on film. Nothing was missed! They thought of so many things we had not even given a second thought. We will be eternily grateful for there professionalism. There were no awkward moments nor did we have that stiff photographer standing in the corner. They were apart of the family and were wonderful all evening. I highly recommend them for ANY event.  -The Gillespie’s

HR Northwest has been amazing since I booked them. They were responsive and always answering ant questions or concerns I had. Heather made us feel so comfortable at our engagement session and I knew I liked her right away. On the wedding day Heather and Ivy were our photographers and I can’t even begin to explain how pleased I am with them. From the moment they arrived Heather was checking on me and making sure I was okay and didn’t need anything. They made EVERYONE, even my husbands shy brothers feel completely comfortable. They were so full of energy and passionate about what they were doing that everyone couldn’t help but have a good time. They were professional but at the same time feel like your best friends. My entire family was commenting on how much they loved the photographers. Our day was so much fun and so amazing and I have no doubt that a HUGE part of that was because of Heather and Ivy and there energy and ability to make everyone smile and have a blast. Not to mention the pictures I have seen so far are absolutely beautiful. These ladies are incredible. Thank you guys so so much , you have a client for life!

My husband and I first found HR Northwest Photography on weddingwire.com. We were so impressed with their amazing reviews and the wonderful work on their website. We knew right away they would be the perfect photographers to capture our special day! We met with Ryan about a year before our big day. He was even willing to meet us in Downtown Seattle while we were on our way to a Sounders game! We booked them right away. Our engagement session was so much fun and the big day was more then we could have ever asked for! We had Ivy and Matt (fantastic photographers that work with Heather and Ryan) photograph our big day. They made us feel so comfortable. We were smiling and laughing the entire time. We were able to just enjoy the day. They were always there to help with anything they could and were able to capture beautiful pictures at the same time. I will be a customer for life with HR Northwest Photography. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for great, friendly people, amazing photographers and wonderful service! Thank you HR Northwest Photography!

We met Heather and Ryan a year before our wedding while they were photographing our friend’s wedding. Before even seeing her pictures, I told my fiancé “we have to have photographers like them.” They were shooting while getting to know the guests. The pictures told my friend’s story and were truly unique to her and her husband because Heather and Ryan were so dedicated to learning as much as possible about their friends and family. Soon after, we met them for coffee to discuss if they could photograph our wedding. We loved the pride they had in their work and by the end of our coffee date, felt as if we had been friends for a long time. We booked them the next day, but we had a popular wedding date and I was anxious that somebody else might scoop them up in the time it would take our contract to get to them in the mail. I think they could sense this, and drove to our house (at least an hour from their house) to pick up the contract! Talk about service! They shot our engagement pictures a few months later, and had the pictures to us within a week! They even gave us a sneak peek the next day which was awesome! We were floored with how beautiful they were. Our wedding was last week (8/24/13) and there are no words to describe how perfect they made this day. Heather did not leave my side, and is so personable that even my mom asked if we had been friends prior to us hiring them. Unfortunately, Ryan had to leave town for a family emergency, however, Heather brought another photographer (Brad) who was also stellar! Heather and Brad shot beautiful photos, took time to get to know our friends and family, and literally told the story of our wedding day through their talent. A week after our wedding we have our photos and could not be more thrilled. I said before I even started planning my wedding that the photography was the most important thing to me. HR Northwest made my dreams come true and was the best decision I made! Thank you so much HR Northwest Photography!

Truly AMAZED and IMPRESSED with HR Northwest Photography! Where do I start? They did our complimentary engagement photos and we felt so comfortable with them immediately! Heather and Matt (her husband, Ryan, was out of town for a family emergency) photographed our wedding and we could not be more IMPRESSED, EXCITED and AMAZED by our photos! Heather was there every step of the day, making sure we were doing ok and keeping us on schedule. I honestly would have been lost without her and her humor & comfort throughout the day…she feels like family! I cannot wait to tell future Brides and Grooms about our experience, they truly are the BEST decision we made! Great service, fast turn-a-rounds and talented! Thank you SO much for giving us lasting memories we will always cherish! We can’t wait to photograph our next life moments with you…pregnancy and family photos! -Ryan and Sara Simmons

HAWAII DESTINATION WEDDING !!!

We cannot put into words how AMAZING HR Northwest Photography is! Ryan totally put us at ease during our engagement session. Heather and Ivy were amazing even before the wedding. They even helped us get flowers for our bridesmaids and made sure we had everything we needed. Heather and Ivy went above and beyond any expectations we had for our wedding. They captured our day perfectly and now we have beautiful pictures to remember our day. They are much more than just photographers to us they become part of our family. We look forward to using them for all of our life events and would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!

I could not have asked for a better Photographer. Heather and Ivy went above and beyond just taking pictures. They were there at my disposal to do anything that needed to be done. They helped to keep me calm, and ensure everything ran smoothly. It felt as though I had two great friends taking AMAZING wedding pictures. Heather posted some of our pictures the morning after our wedding, which was awesome to be able to see them so fast. My husband and I still cannot even pick a favorite, because they are all so fantastic. I would 100% recommend them for anyones wedding or family pictures. You won’t be disappointed! 🙂

Bride on a budget but you don’t want to lose high value photos from your special day?? Then you need to book Ryan and Heather from HR Northwest because they are more than generous with the value of the package you get, from the engagement session, to FULL COVERAGE of your wedding day! I have so many great shots of our wedding, I don’t know what to do with them all 🙂 My wedding day start to finish was captured in elegant and beautiful memories that I will cherish forever.

This is a husband and wife team who have top of the line equipment, know how to use it, and are very fast at providing sneak peek’s and you can just see that they truly and genuinely care about the experience you have with them on your wedding day! Lovely lovely couple – we will be doing family photography business with them for years to come!!

Ryan did our complimentary engagement session at UW, and ever since we saw our pictures, we knew we were in the best hands. Ryan couldn’t do wedding ceremony because of some family emergency, so Heather and Matt, one of her fellow photographer friend captured our wedding ceremony and reception. Unlike most typical hindu wedding, we decided to have ceremony and reception on the same day (because of a lot of out of town guests) and we can’t thank them enough for accommodating our schedule so well. Heather and Matt did our first-look, bridesmaids and family picture session in the morning followed by entire ceremony coverage that started in noon and then after a little break, came back for our reception. It was a LONG day, but Heather was always there capturing our special moments with a beautiful smile and loving words. When we went through some 2300+ pictures that Heather shared with us, we couldn’t believe how perfect every single one of them looked. Couple of our family members who couldn’t attend our wedding said that when they went throughout the pictures, it was as if they were witnessing the wedding itself — all the pictures were very detailed and beautifully captured. We highly recommend Events by Heather & Ryan for wedding or any other events.
Thank you so much, Heather and Ryan for creating images that we will cherish for a lifetime!!! You guys were an absolute delight to work with.

Wonderful! When my wife and I were planning for our wedding, my wife’s #1 concern was really the photographers. So, we did a lot of research on photographers, interviewed several and we settled on Events by Heather & Ryan – and we’re sure glad we did. Events by Heather & Ryan did an AWESOME job entire time – from helping us understand what to expect in the planning stages to taking all of the pictures during the wedding. They have charming personalities and can really get people to smile and be happy for pictures – and this is a really important thing! They have great eyes for pictures. We had our wedding ceremony at Mt. Rainier National Park, and they really, really, really did a fantastic job in working with the natural scenery for some awesome pictures. We actually drove up and down the mountain immediately after the ceremony taking pictures at select spots. They did a great job with difficult lighting, which our venue suffered, and they know how to take pictures with fireworks!!! At the end of our reception at night we had all of our guests “play with sparklers” and they nabbed some awesome shots!!! Now we’re scanning through 1,846 photos (all organized by them, of course) for getting some portrait pictures and building our wedding album! We are really happy with Events by Heather & Ryan and would recommend them to any couple who’s in need of wedding photographers!

Absolutely amazing, and their services and photography went far beyond my expectations. I knew they were going to be good, based on 2 previous experiences with them (birthday photos and our engagement session). They were not only flexible and fun, but truly captured the images I wanted for our special day. The thing I love about them is their “blogs by breakfast.” It is amazing to see some of the images they captured from your wedding…the VERY NEXT DAY! Love!! They are a pleasure to work with, and an excellent value for the money. I found them through a recommendation, and couldn’t be more pleased. I hope they continue to get more recommendations, because they deserve it! I know I will spread the word! 🙂

Ryan and Heather are the best photographers ever!!!!!!!!!! They will never make you feel uncomfortable. They are both very sweet and kind. We love them! They took great photos of our engagement, wedding and family portraits. They are pretty open with new ideas and very accommodating with our needs.. Our guests LOVEd them! We couldn’t ask for a better service. They are above and beyond amazing!

Excellent photography service provided by Heather & Ryan! Loved having two photographers there to capture our day, and all the special moments. Having a team made such a difference in our photos. They captured every moment of the day, and were very professional and helpful throughout. Such a joy to work with them! They were funny, cheerful and just made everything so easy & comfortable! We have gotten so many compliments from our guests that have seen all the pictures! They also had a photo booth that we booked, which was a HUGE hit of the night! Quick turnaround service, we had our photos within just a couple of weeks!

Heather and Ryan did such a fantastic job photographing our wedding we couldn’t be happier. They are probably the only photographers crazy enough to say yes to a Mt. Rainier outdoor wedding in the middle of October but they toughed out the rain with smiles on their faces. Both Heather and Ryan added so much more to the day than just taking pictures; their personalities helped keep us calm when the minor details (that felt like crises at the time) weren’t going just right and having been to so many weddings they were very helpful in so many other aspects of the day that we hadn’t planned perfectly. Heather ended up on train duty, following me around to keep my dress out of the mud wherever I went before the ceremony and then ended up under my dress to fix the bustle afterwards. I don’t think very many photographers would go so far beyond what’s expected of them. Heather and Ryan are such great people to have around and the end product is really amazing photographs which capture the day perfectly. I’ve had two friends get engaged since our wedding and my first comment has been, “I know a really great photographer.”

HR Northwest Photography recently shot our fall wedding. They did an absolutely wonderful job of combing casual, in the moment candid shots as well as fun, posed formal shots. They did a great job of blending into the guests and capturing many different things, without being obtrusive at all. We received our pictures within just a few days! Overall, we could not be happier.

Michelle & Garrett (2012)

Heather and Ryan are awesome. They photographed a friends wedding in september of 2011 and I thought the pictures were awesome. When I got engaged I knew I wanted the same quality of photos. I did some research looking for value and creativity, and HR was still my first pic. They were reasonably priced but had the creative fun pictures of the super expensive photographers. HR had 2 weddings that day so they split up and I got Heather and an awesome assistant. They were so creative and got the best photos and were just a blast to work with. My wedding coordinator even mentioned how much she liked their energy and how they were always there when you needed them but not trying to take over or be obtrusive. I couldn’t recommend them more, they are awesome!

HR Northwest was the photographers for my wedding on September 29th.  All I can say is WOW..PERFECT!  They were very professional, on time, funny and put everyone at ease.  I didn’t even know they were there.  I loved that the majority of the pictures were of my guests being themselves.  There were the usual family pictures, however the majority were of our guests.  I plan on referring my friends to HR Northwest for their weddings.  All of the pictures were awesome!  My husband said that at his sisters wedding the photographer was pointing them what to do.  I loved the HR allowed us to be ourselves.

We absolutely loved Ryan and Heather- I would recommend them to anybody and certainly plan on using them again in the future. They were easy to work with- very comfortable. They knew how to pose our friends and family just right. They were so creative with their shots but also focused a lot on getting many formal and traditional shots. They really captured the beauty of the entire day.

Anna & Steven (2012)

Hi Ryan and Heather,  I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful evening.  Anna loved working with the two of you and I loved that I didn’t worry about anything that was being done, or not done.  Because of your humor, compatibility (loved your little disagreements and playfulness) and professionalism I was able to enjoy a great occasion with family and friends.Once again, thank you…..wish you were part of our family!  Really.

We were incredibly lucky to find HR NW Photography! Not only did they take beautiful and creative photos, but they were fun to work with, were flexible, and were wonderful support to have on our wedding day. Heather was with the bridal party and did an amazing job at keeping me (the bride) relaxed and comfortable. By the end of the night I felt like she was an old friend. Ryan also had fun with the groomsmen and both photographers took beautiful pictures. I would (and will) recommend HR NW Photography to anyone and everyone! They are flexible, affordable, fun, creative, and a great team!

An absolute pleasure to work with. They kept us relaxed and kept things light, while providing us with fantastic pictures. We would recommend to anyone with 100% confidence they would also be just as pleased.  

Amber & Brad (2012)

HR Northwest Photography is a premier photographer studio! As a bride who has never searched for wedding photographers before, I met Ryan and Heather at the Seattle Wedding Expo. I knew immediately that I just had to have them. They were friendly, honest and their photos proved their dedication to their work. I signed up with them immediatlely and was NEVER disappointed but elated and confident in my choice. Through our engagement photos to our wedding these two never let me down. The very next morning after our wedding they already had pictures of the wedding posted. I was so happy with the photos and their attention to detail to myself and my fiance throughout our whole wedding journey with them. They are creative, organized, punctual and their prices are more than fair. They are now our family photographers and we plan to use them for other events and family photography.

I wanted to tell you that from everybody I hired to help pull this wedding of you guys are the only ones I enjoyed and the only ones that I will be recommending to others. You guys went above and beyond and I told my mom and dad you felt like people to me unlike the other vendors who I felt they got paid so why should they care…you know what I mean. You guys were always they and not in a bad way but every time I thought oh that would be a cute picture one of you where there getting it. So thank you so much again you guys where awesome.

We booked Heather and Ryan for 2 events: Pellikutharu Chayadam (making of the bride) and a south Indian Wedding/Reception. They arrived promptly for both events, the second event lasting close to 15 hours. Their energy level never wavered once.They captured some incredible moments and moved effortlessly throughout the events. They interacted well with the guests and it was extremely easy to work with Heather and Ryan.  They had pictures posted the next day, and they were beautiful! We can’t wait for the final product!

 Heather and Ryan were absolutely fabulous to work with for our wedding. We were planning our wedding from the opposite coast and they were more than accommodating with our limited face-to-face planning time. You couldn’t ask for better communication- every email and phone call was promptly replied to and they really helped us feel like we were in control. Not only did they make us feel calm and relax on our wedding day, they felt like family. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality team of photographers at an unbeatable price. We loved them!

Lindsay & Russell (2012)

We used Heather & Ryan for our wedding on July 22. I was truly amazed at their professionalism and how well they were able to handle everybody and what seemed to be a million things going on that day. They arrived on time, ready to go and they were very calm throughout the whole day. In fact, I looked more at Heather for guidance for other “non photography” related things in my wedding than I did those close to me. Heather is really knowledgeable and made me feel that my requests and feelings were paramount to anybody else – even though she was being pulled in many different directions. Ryan – well let’s just say he’s got a good sense of humor. I’ve read other reviews on here about Ryan and let’s just say – he has a way about him that disarms and makes you remember that your day is about having fun and a gathering of friends. This duo is great together. Now fast forward… we got back from our honeymoon and we had several emails from them. One letting us know that our blog was ready (it was ready the day after the wedding !!!). Another was letting us know the full set of wedding images was available (just 4 days after the wedding !!). Each photo was beautiful and you can tell that even though they got us the pictures quickly, they didn’t sacrifice quality.

Overall – highly recommended.

When i first sent a inquiry email to Heather and Ryan back in July 2011 i sent it thinking i would get a response maybe within the week, I think i got a phone call from Ryan within 2 hours of sending the email and right then and there we set up a time to meet up. Right then i knew these two would be good. We met at Starbucks, and the meeting was so easy and fun. We had an instant connection with husband and wife duo! They are extremely easy to talk with they show you all their wonderful work, and they are just themselves, they aren’t trying to sell you on anything. Their work and personality sell themselves! We booked them right away, we didn’t even meet with any other photographers, we just knew they were the ones for us. They even said to us, of all your vendors its important to be comfortable and click with your photographers, and boy is that right. They were there for us every step of the way on our wedding day. Heather didn’t leave my side on the big day, constantly making sure i was OK, even carried my chap stick around for me whenever i needed it.  Ryan makes you forget the stress of the day and makes you laugh. Hanging with these two all day was a ton of laughs and was more like four friends hanging out. I don’t know how many times my husband and I told them how much we loved them! We left for our honeymoon the next morning, and they already had a blog up with some of our photos! Which was so exciting to see before getting on the plane, It hadn’t been 12 hrs since the wedding and we already got to see the photos!! And exactly 2 days later still on our honeymoon, we got the email from them and it had all our wedding photos! We huddled around my i phone and looked at them all, which was amazing because those first two days all we talked about was “i cant wait to see our wedding photos” haha The photos were all so beautiful! And saying they all were beautiful is an understatement. We cant say enough great things about Heather and Ryan, we strongly recommend them. You’ll love their photos, and when you meet them you will fall in love with them just like we did!!! 🙂

Great people to work with.  Highly recommended for wedding, of course…and other family event portraits.  Heather and Ryan are a wedded couple photographer team who are sincere, reliable, and enthousiastic professionals.

Ryan and Heather are simply amazing to work with! They provide an excellent value for the service they provide. They are easy to work with and pay very close attention to what you want out of your photos. They are quick to respond to any and all questions we had. They are very quick with turnaround times as well. I should also add that we really enjoyed having them around on our wedding day, we had a blast! Many of our guests were very impressed with how friendly they were. We had a preview blog up of our wedding photos within 24 hours, and were able to view our photos online within just a few days of the wedding. The quality of the photos is unbelievable, both for posed and candid photos. I could not be happier with their service and will definitely be recommending them to everyone I know for any occasion.

Loved them!!! Our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures turned out fabulous! Loved they are a husband and wife team! Two taking pictures and one to be with bride and one to be with groom! We definitely have our photographers for all the next chapters in our lives! Thanks HR Northwest!

From the very begining until the very end, Heather and Ryan have been nothing short that fabulous! I met Heather and Ryan at a bridal show in Seattle, just looking around for ideas and inspiration more than networking as I planned a destination wedding in Las Vegas. Fate sure had it in for me as they were aalready going to be in town (Las Vegas) the very same weekend as my wedding! I beleive photographs are just as important as the love you share with your partner as they are the only thing left after your wedding besides centerpeices that sit in the garage and a dress you’ll never wear again. They are important to share the story of one of the most important days of your life. It’s true you get what you pay for….but Heather and Ryan’s work is priceless. Not only do they have Passion and personality that you can clearly see in your pictures but they care about you and your day. From someone who has never had professional pictures taken ever, and I mean ever unless you count yearbook headshots, they make you feel so comfortable and at ease. Heather’s slunk and Ryan’s technical footwork make this dynamic duo a absolute must for any special event you want captured in time. I will never use another photographer as long as these two are around. The engagement session allows them to see the couple for who they are and they get to know you on a level before your wedding that no other photographer that just shows up on the big day. They are able to get the shots that depict you and your partner in pure form. Not to mention they take amazing newborn,and individual portraits. I know because they blog every session within 24 hours ( really like 12) with sneak peaks that make you want to see more, on their website. Communication is always open which is something you can’t always say for any vendor. You will not be sorry!!

We truly enjoyed working with Heather & Ryan, the entire experience was a lot of fun. We absolutely love our photos; they are a beautiful mix of candid & formal shots which totally captured the emotion & love from our day which is exactly what I wanted. Would highly recommend working with them! Their packages are a great value, especially considering that you get 2 amazing photographers for the price. They are very laid back & easy to work with, always prompt at returning calls & emails. Again, we highly recommend.

Jennifer & Nick (2012)

Ryan and Heather were awesome. They were fun to work with and did an amazing job. They are very responsibly priced too. Which helps. The pictures they took were absolutely fabulous and would recommend them to anyone. 

I wish it were that easy to paint a perfect picture but they were so helpful before the wedding and so nice to work with. On our wedding day Heather helped me to relax and smile and enjoy my day. Ryan was with the guys and helped them get ready and capture every moment. They made the night stressless and amazing! The wedding photos turned out better than ever expected and the album took my breath away! I would recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding photographer, boudier session or family pictures!

OH MY GOSH!! These are the most beautiful pictures!!!!! I love every single one of them!!!! I can not wait to see all of them. Yesterday was a dream and I have sent the last year looking at other peoples beautiful pictures now I have my own!!!! Thank you so much! 🙂

“Heather and Ryan are the perfect addition to any wedding. They are flexible in meeting up and discussing what your goals and desires are with your photography. They are completely focused on what you and your fiancee want; all the way through your wedding day. They are professional and responsive to any and all questions that you might have.Heather was there for me on my wedding day. I knew that she had my back and she had my photo plan in mind as the day went by. This did not limit HR Northwest Photography in what they captured but helped them understand what we wanted most and made that a priority. They learned our personalities through our meetings, emails, photo plan and engagement session and as a result had a more personal connection to my fiancee and I. They knew what we were willing to try and we trusted them completely.

I recommend them to every Bride. They are fabulous and passionate about capturing your most important moments. The photographs are unique and individual to your specific desires. I will cherish all of the photographs all of my life and I will continue to go to them for all of our future photography needs.”

“Heather and Ryan are amazing and simply the best. For us photography was a very important part of our day and we would accept nothing but the best photographers to capture our day; Heather and Ryan did exactly that!  We had Heather and Ryan capture many aspects of our wedding process and every picture taken from the engagement and budior sessions, getting ready and first look pictures, to ceremony, formal and reception pictures, and finally the trash the dress session there was not a bad picture taken.  Heather and Ryan are true photojournalists’ and it shows in their pictures. They love what they do! They are very creative, laid back and fun, and yet they are still very professional at the same time! On wedding day I hardly saw them yet they were always there to capture all of the important and candid moments! 

I will continue to recommend them to everyone I know as well as continue to use there photojournalistic abilities for pregnancy, infant and family sessions for many years to come!Thanks for capturing so many amazing moments at such an amazing milestone in our lives!”

Chrissa & Thomas (2011)

“I heard about Heather and Ryan from a friend I went to high school with. I am SO very happy that I listened to her. Heather and Ryan were the best and still are. I booked them almost 1 a year and a half in advance and they still remembered every things from our first meeting. Heather and Ryan delivered some of the best photos I have ever seen and love every one of them. I can’t wait to have them do other pictures for my friends and family. Ryan even did our wedding pictures after just having surgery. Who knew that we would have two fire out our wedding and they were there to catch all the special moments we had. They had our pictures up and ready for us to see in less than a week and we were able to see them while on our honeymoon.If you can take one piece of advice from me, its to use HR photography you will be happy you did.

We couldnt be more pleased with how they turned out. Thanks again for everything and for being so fun to work with. Can’t wait to get them!

“I received the three DVDs you sent and was absolutely delighted.  The photography was excellent and covered my son’s wedding so that I can cherish those memories for a long time to come.  I appreciate how you went the extra distance in organizing the events in folders with labels for each significant wedding event.  I’ve never seen such a product (from any photographer) as these DVD?s.  The quality and effort of organization is beyond anything I would have expected”

Carl (Father of the Groom) (2011)

“I just wanted to check in with you guys about the wedding photos!  I think I probably look at them on Pictage about ten times a day, I absolutely LOVE them!  I definitely want to add an album to my package, probably a 12×12 album.  Mike and I will start going through the pictures on the website and choosing the album photos soon.  We’ll send you another email once we’ve finished the selection process!  Also, we were wonderingwhen we could expect the photo CD/DVD?  Ryan, I know you left me a voicemail last week and said it would go out soon but my mom is harassing me for it so I thought I’d ask!  :)”

Brittany & Mike (2010)

Hi Ryan! We have been looking through our photos from the wedding, and I have to say, they are more then I could have expected! I was so worried about how they (Me) were going to turn out, and we got SO many wonderful ones!!  You and Natalie did a great job capturing us, or family, our guests, and we love the style you did it in.  Thank you again SO much!”

We used Ryan and Heather for our wedding in August 2010 in Port Gamble, WA. They did such an amazing job capturing our special day. We love how our photographs turned out and have many displayed around our home. They traveled to our faraway wedding desitination, and spent the entire wedding, reception, and afterwards on the ferry ride home, taking beautiful pictures! We were so happy that we chose HR Northwest Photography for our wedding day!

Kelsey & Riley (2010)

– – – – – – – – – –

We are very happy with the pictures and are still in the process of picking our favorites for the album. All 3 of you did a fantastic job.  Your professionalism and talent was greatly appreciated. In fact, I’ve have had 2 people call and ask for your name. I hope it will bring you more business.”

We wish you every success as you grow your business.”

Emily & Benjamin (2010)

 

“Thank you so much for the beautiful picture you sent me of me and my mother. While it made me cry not only at the sadness of not having her here now, the kindness of you guys to send that to me. I want to say thank you again from my husband and myself for your wonderful work and your generosity. I was always going to treasure my wedding pictures but now as these pictures show the last time I saw my mother alive they mean so much more. Thank you so much for your gift as its irreplaceable.”

Dinesha & Joshua (2010)

“What an amazing pair of photographers to work with! Not only were they professional, but affordable as well! They were very patient and understanding with our entire hectic wedding process. At times they even doubled as wedding coordinators giving wonderful advice. Our power went out at the reception, and they still managed to take some of the most beautiful photos of my husband and I. At first, we chose them due to the outstanding value- having two photographers ALL DAY for 1/2 the price of another company would charge for a 1/2 day and one photographer. Going through the whole process with such a cool-headed duo made all the difference. Not to mention how wonderful our photos turned out! I’ve recommended HR NW Photography to my friends getting married and they’ve booked with them already. They wont disappoint!!”

Shanda & Matt (2010)

 

“We hired HR Photography from a wedding show. They were always very flexible and helpful. On the wedding day, they showed up on time and prepared. The pictures turned of amazing and they got them to us the following Tuesday after our wedding (just four days after our wedding !!!). If you are looking for a good photographer for your wedding, I’d highly recommend them.”

Jessica & Josh (2010)

“I was blown away by them at the very beginning. I had sent them an email one evening just curious about their services and it wasn’t more than 20 minutes later my phone was ringing and it was Ryan calling to schedule a meeting, and right then i knew we were instore for some great service! We met with Heather and looked over her work and we both were amazed! We booked her that same night and from then on it was nothing but smooth sailing. Our engagement pictures turned out wonderful! Everyone that saw them gave us nothing but complements and i just couldnt wait to see the wedding pictures. Now that it is all said and done i don’t even think twice about having a different photographer.  very friendly and down to earth! They will do anything and give you the best input. I looked at tons of photography websites and for what I wanted everyone else cost sooo much but HR Northwest was by far the most for your money! I have already told many people about them and look forward to getting to work with them again for other special moments that’ll happen in our lives! Thank you!”

“We hired Heather  for our wedding last summer. She was great. Starting from the time we reserved her, she was always very attentive to us – answering our questions and making us feel important in the weeks and days leading up to our wedding. The day of –  perfect. Even my parents commented on her professionalism and her ability to keep composure even when things get hectic (our cake lady was late and it was really stressful). They were even a few minutes early which made me really feel at ease. They were the one vendor that I really felt I didn’t have to worry about them doing a good job. And they’re quick too. Our wedding was on a Saturday and the images were on line by Tuesday –    I’d highly recommend them.”

“You are nice people, and easy to work with…. I hope I wasn’t too bridezilla for you! 😉 I without a doubt will forward your website and email to anyone who is looking for a great photographer at a great price. You go above and beyond for the price you ask for, and most others do a good job too, but are 4 and 5 times the cost!! I really hope that your business continues to grow, and that your lives continue to grow with happiness… I would love to see pictures every now and then of Anthony as he gets older…. He is GORGEOUS!!  I hope you all enjoyed yourselves at the reception…. Anyhow, there aren’t enough words to express how happy I am that Paul and I found you to be the photographers…. I wish you nothing but the best of luck and happiness. If there is anything we can do…. Email! 🙂 And don’t forget pics of Anthony!! :-D”

    Heather and Ryan,
    I have thought about you both many times. My son and Kendra’s wedding was January 2010. You took many pictures with my mom, Jacob’s Grandma with her family.

    I remember Heather saying how she felt our mom was “special” and maybe the last time we are able to get those “Special” pictures of her. Heather kept taking pictures with her and others with her.

    She passed 5 months later. We used one of your pictures at her graveside and memorial service. I just want to say “thank you ” for being so sensitive at a very special event in our family.

    You two did an A + + + + job.

    Wonderful! When my wife and I were planning for our wedding, my wife’s #1 concern was really the photographers. So, we did a lot of research on photographers, interviewed several and we settled on HR Northwest Photography – and we’re sure glad we did. HR Northwest Photography did an AWESOME job entire time – from helping us understand what to expect in the planning stages to taking all of the pictures during the wedding. They have charming personalities and can really get people to smile and be happy for pictures – and this is a really important thing! They have great eyes for pictures. We had our wedding ceremony at Mt. Rainier National Park, and they really, really, really did a fantastic job in working with the natural scenery for some awesome pictures. We actually drove up and down the mountain immediately after the ceremony taking pictures at select spots. They did a great job with difficult lighting, which our venue suffered, and they know how to take pictures with fireworks!!! At the end of our reception at night we had all of our guests “play with sparklers” and they nabbed some awesome shots!!! Now we’re scanning through 1,846 photos (all organized by them, of course) for getting some portrait pictures and building our wedding album!

    We are really happy with HR Northwest Photography and would recommend them to any couple who’s in need of wedding photographers!

    Heather and Ryan are so much more than photographers!! Yes, they take breathtaking photos, taking into account your wish list and taking advantage of the location! But on our wedding day, they also were so caring and organized. They helped our day run so smoothly! Heather made sure I had all of my accessories on, made sure I was eating and drinking and taking care of myself, and even made sure that I smelled OK! She coordinated with the DJ to make better changes to the schedule and kept checking in with us to make sure we were OK. I won’t ever hire another photographer!
