Wedding Photography FAQ

What is your style? What makes you stand out?

We’re versatile and love bold, bright images filled with joy. We adapt to our couples and their wedding vision. Beautiful, Fun & Real images for real couples.

Who has image ownership and printing rights after the wedding?

All of our packages include high resolution files on USB and ownership of your images. Go ahead – print them out as you wish!

Do you backup your wedding images?

We take backing up our images very seriously! We head to a wedding with an arsenal of cameras & lenses (all high end Nikon gear) and have backups for our backups, literally. Our cameras have double memory card slots so that while shooting files are automatically being backed up, and after the wedding your images are stored on a RAID server as well as off site backup.

How do you deal with Mother Nature’s wrath?

Don’t let rain, snow or even clouds dampen your day. We have lots of suggestions & connections for indoor locations, come armed with many, many umbrellas and have experienced shooting in all lighting / weather conditions (ask us about that time we were shooting an outdoor farm wedding during a tornado warning!)

How much editing do the images you take receive?

All images are edited for colour, contrast and exposure. Album & print orders receive a second level of polishing. Our editing style is clean, crisp & bright. We want you to remember the joy & happiness of your day and not feel like your images are dated by technology.  Just because you CAN add a crazy filter on an image doesn’t mean you should!

Do you take family pictures and portraits at weddings?

Of course! Typically photographers don’t include these in their portfolios as they aren’t particularly interestesting to anyone aside from the people who are in them. That’s not to say we don’t take time & care with these images! At the end of the day, these are the images that will go in your family history book. We ask for a list of important combinations so we don’t miss anyone. We don’t want to make Grandma mad!

How many pictures can we expect to receive?

We believe in quality AND quantity and there is no limit to the amount of pictures we take or deliver to our clients. The only complaint we regularly get is that “there were so many pictures to choose from that I couldn’t pick my favorites”. However, you don’t need to choose because all the images are yours to keep! On average, you’ll receive a minimum of 100 images per hour of coverage, but often much, much more.

What is your turnaround time for the pictures after our wedding?

Quality takes time, but we know how anxious you and your families are to see your beautiful photos. Depending on our current workload, it can take anywhere from 4-10 weeks for your full gallery is standard. Don’t worry, we will provide a sneak peek ASAP to tide you over!

Have a question that isn't here? Please send us an email, we'd be happy to answer any questions you may have!

{London, Ontario Wedding Photobooth}

Our Photo Booth is WAY too much fun!!  Its unique "open air" style lets you cram in up to 10 guests or more, guaranteed to enduce squeals of delight and non-stop laughter from your guests throughout the night. It provides totally hilarious and occassionally embarassing pictures of your friends & family that you can giggle about for years to come! We provide all props and backdrop or are happy to work with our clients to customize the photo booth to a specific theme or colour scheme.

What our couples are saying about the photo booth:
"Our guests still come up to us (almost a year later!) Saying how much fun they had at our wedding, and they always mention the photobooth! It was easy to use and fool proof! My only regret is that we didn't have it open all night!" - Sharon & George

"The photobooth added a fun, light-hearted element to the day. The pictures we got back are hilarious and we continue to look back at them again and again and laugh hysterically each time. The fact that we were able to capture my traditional european mama in devil horns with my bridesmaids was truly priceless! The photobooth is a must-have!" - Maria & Aaron

"The photo booth that HRM Photography set up for our wedding was SUCH an amazing success!!  They provided costumes and props, and it gave the guests something to do while the wedding party was being photographed, and was a great way for people to meet each other - we have photos of people who had just met having a blast together!  The best part of the photo booth photos for us is that we now have a collection of photos of all of our friends and family goofing off and having a great time, we will cherish these forever.  I particularly like one photo of my mother and my uncle dressed in princess props goofing off - she has it framed in her house and it makes me smile everytime I see it!" - Emillie & Damian

Interested in a photo booth for your wedding? Currently our amazing photo booth is available exclusively to couples who have booked HRM Photography for their wedding day photography. Drop us a line if you'd like more information about!

Meet Heather - Owner / Photographer

I have been drawn to photography for as long as I can remember...

When I was 13 years old, I began documenting the local music scene of London, Ontario. It was at this point that my interest in photography turned into a full blown obsession! Since then, my live music and promotional band photography has appeared in national and international press such as the Globe and Mail, Elle Magazine and the Toronto Star. My work as also been used by numerous bands and musicians for their CD artwork and promotional material.

In September, 1999 I moved to Toronto to follow my dreams of becoming a professional photographer. In April of 2003, I graduated from Ryerson University's Photography program with a BFA, honours. While at Ryerson I discovered my ability to capture the sentiment and energy of the live music experience carried over perfectly to recording the emotion and beauty of a wedding day. By the end of 2016 I will have photographed over 600 weddings!

My photojournalistic eye, artistic flair, attention to detail and unobtrusive approach are the perfect qualities that enable me to capture you looking and feeling your best on your wedding day!

Cheers,
Heather MacEachern

Meet Niki - Associate Photographer / Office Manager

My love for photography started when I was in high school and I quickly decided that the best way to develop my skills was to study photography through Fanshawe's three-year photography program.

My co-op placement at Fanshawe led me to HRM Photography - Heather and Lindsay instantly made me feel like a part of the team! I officially began working with HRM in 2006 as Lindsay's second shooter in Toronto and in 2009 I moved back to London to take on my role as the company's office manager and associate photographer. By the end of 2016 I will have photographed over 100 weddings as the primary shooter, and have photographed even more than that as a second shooter!

There are so many things I love about wedding photography, but most of all I feel that capturing the full story of a couple's big day is so important. Wedding photographs allow a couple and their families to cherish and relive their wedding day forever.

Like the rest of the HRM team, my love for photography keeps me passionate, and my laidback approach ensures that we capture real images while still having fun.

I'm so excited to be a part of your day, and even more excited to help you remember it forever!

Cheers,
Niki Patel

Meet Lindsay - Associate Photographer

The moment I discovered my passion for photography, there was nothing else in the world that I wanted to do. I see the world clearly through the lens of a camera. It was a natural decision for me to study photography in college and in April 2004, I graduated from the Creative Photography program at Humber College. While at Humber, I began assisting various Toronto wedding photographers - Heather being one of them. We both realized quickly that we share a similar style, passion and approach when it comes to photographing weddings.

I love to capture the true emotion and beauty of people as they celebrate the special moments in life. I feel that photographing a wedding is such a wonderful experience, as you are helping people preserve memories that they will cherish forever. By the end of 2016 I will have photographed over 350 weddings!

My fresh personality and friendly, unobtrusive approach will make you and your guests feel at ease and ensure fantastic photos of your wedding day!

Sincerely,
Lindsay Ross

Meet Jordan - Office Assistant / Second Shooter

My love for photography started when I was very young. I burned through disposable cameras faster than my mom could buy them for me! After I received my first digital camera when I was 10, that was really when my passion and borderline addiction started. When I discovered that I could make a career out of taking photographs, I knew that was the path I needed to follow for my post-secondary education. I attended the Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto and received my Bachelors of Fine Art Degree in photography. I was so thrilled to be hired by HRM Photography as their office assistant / second shooter shortly after I graduated! 

I love everything about weddings; from the beautiful details and outfits to the emotional reactions and moments. Being able to capture the most intimate interactions throughout a couple’s big day is a huge honor! Having a fine art education provides me with a unique approach to my photography, but like my amazing teammates at HRM, being able to keep everyone smiling and laidback is also one of my top priorities! 

Cheers,
Jordan 

Meet Anne-Renée - Editor / Assistant


I received my first entry level DSLR as a gift when I graduated high school. After a couple years of amateur shooting I fell in love with phography and decided I wanted to pursue it as a career option but knew I still had lots to learn. During my second year at Fanshawe's Photography program, I was required to find a field placement. I knew where I wanted to land and wasted no time in emailing HRM. Heather agreed to meet with me and after our interview she took me in as a field placement student.  Once I finished my placement hours and graduated from the program I was offered a position here editing in the office.Three years later I am still overjoyed to be working for a team that I love and get to learn from every single day!

My main job at HRM Photography is editing all the portrait sessions of the beautiful families and babies that the team photographs. You'll also see me as a second shooter at weddings!

Meet Jen - Second Shooter / Assistant


I am a graduate from the Fanshawe College Photography program. My career has centered around photography first working as a photo lab technician as a teen, then a photo editor and now as an assistant shooter for HRM, with a brief period as a jail guard in between(experience like this comes in handy when dealing with those difficult to pose). My mission in life is to get every parent to stop worrying about what they look like and get in the picture. I'm proud to have been part of the HRM Photography team since 2011.

Meet Mariam - Second Shooter / Assistant


I've always had a love for photography, whether it was in the photography club in high school or taking photos for family and friends throughout university. After my own wedding, I decided to follow my passions and enroledl in the photography program at Fanshawe College to be on the other side of the lens. When I interned with HRM, I quickly learned that it wasn't just about snapping photos, it was about capturing the emotions of a special day. Upon graduating, I was thrilled to join the vibrant and lively HRM team and love being a second shooter at many weddings with the team!

Meet Becky - Assistant / Second Shooter

Years ago I stole my first camera from my husband and quickly realized that 1) he's forgiving, and 2) I love photography! That was the beginning of my love affair with photography. There's nothing more exciting than providing a captured moment to a parent where their child makes 'that face', when a groom sees his bride for the first time on their wedding day, or even when a person finally sees their own beauty the way the rest of the world sees it. I am incredibly proud to be working with HRM to capture and celebrate these moments, and cannot wait to meet you on your big day!

Meet Melissa - Media and Marketing Manager

Hi! I'm Melissa and I love absolutely everything about love, whether it’s falling in love (swoon!), getting married, having babies (oh, how I love babies!), or celebrating family.  And, because of this love for love, I love working with photographers who so beautifully capture all of these wonderful and magical life-moments! My educational background is quite ecclectic, with a degree in music from Western and a diploma in travel & tourism from Fanshawe. When it comes down to it, I truly love anything to do with fun events and celebrations! 

HRM Photography captured my own wedding in 2008 and when they asked me to join the team as their media and marketing manager, I knew it was the perfect fit for me!
