Myrtle Creative Co.

Hey! I’m Heather of Among the Oaks!
I’m a wedding and portrait photographer based in the farm fields of the Willamette Valley & frolicking to wherever your love takes me. Ever since high school I’ve been enamored with how photography can bring up emotions, tell a story & capture the most significant parts of our lives. Through college (hello fine art degree!) & now ten years later I’m still just as enamored with photography & how important and precious this art form is.

I’m a firm believer that connecting with my clients is an integral part of photographing them && I cherish both the facilitating and the capturing of moments. My goal is for you to feel like another one of your friends on the wedding day, celebrating and laughing with you all while photographing. We’re here to celebrate you & your fiancé all while making the best kind of art together! I help facilitate your day as you need, posing or directing you through special moments & capturing all those sweet little in betweens.

Heather totally blew my expectations out of the water! Not only is she a sweetheart, but she is incredible with her craft. My husband and I had so much fun hanging out with her. I wish we lived in the PNW so we could have her photograph everything in our lives!

Since our wedding in June, I’ve recommended Heather to several of my friends and family members getting married. She is such a lovely person to work with and if you’re looking for a friendly, fun photographer who goes with the flow and has an amazing eye for photos–she’s your gal!

Heather did such a beautiful job capturing our wedding day. I am absolutely in love with our wedding pictures. Her pictures are the perfect mix of posed and candid, and every picture radiates with the joy that we felt that day. Weddings can be overwhelming and Heather helped to guide us and was a really calming presence to have around. I could not recommend Heather enough – she is worth every penny.

I’d been doing photography throughout High School but in the beginning of college my instructor got me my first wedding to shoot. There were about 10 people, including the couple, and barely any decorations in a local church. The smallest sweetest ceremony, and I was instantly sold. I knew this was the path I was meant to be on. So here I am, 10 years later still giddy for every couple who I get to meet, spend time with, learn about & photograph. I adore watching the smiles & grins & playful looks, watching & capturing the connections & intricacies between my couples that make them & their relationship unique. Photography has such a magical ability to illustrate the things we feel, & I am so enamored by it.

I’m not big on small talk, I go deep, and I go deep quick. I love to know people. I want to know your favorite kind of weather but also your favorite childhood memory, your biggest life goals, and the things you struggle with the most about yourself. Knowing & connecting with my clients is like the secret sauce to my photography. When we connect our relationship feels comfortable, & safe. It means I can help facilitate the moments through your day, create space for you to soak in the excitement and anticipation, the extra moment to hug grandma before the ceremony, the dash out to the gorgeous sunset light for a sweet little dance (and photos!) with your brand new spouse, & all the little times in between.

Weddings are where I thrive, because I love to go deep & connect. I don’t just show up, take some photos and head out, I’m there for the day, highs and lows, rushes and lulls. I’m in it for the long haul, because I don’t take this kinda thing lightly. It’s not all small talk & pretty photos (although we’ll have those) it’s big moments & emotional swells & tears & shaky happy smiles & real real life.

It’s that happy nervous anticipation in your stomach right before walking down the aisle, it’s the love-inspired tears gathering every time you catch that certain someone’s eye. It’s about connection & camaraderie & facilitating every precious moment, bringing mundane into the realm of magical & showing the art in every moment.
