Heather from TRU Identity was a god-send for our wedding! She was a referral from a friend, and the easiest vendor decision we made. Heather is so great to work with, makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera, and works to make it YOUR look and style. She was so... Read More flexible on finding a date for our engagements and bridal portraits, and on the day of she went above and beyond capturing all the right moments. She's wonderful with parents that can be a bit overbearing and wedding guests that just don't get it. Also her assistant was very bit as capable and professional (sometimes that isn't the case) and made it feel like Heather could be in two places at once! We will definitely be hiring TRU for any future portrait/event sessions (she'll definitely be shooting all 3 of my sisters weddings, my mom would adopt her if she could), and have already referred her to many friends and family!
