My wife and I were happy and grateful to have encountered Heather for our micro-wedding in the Big Island.  Besides taking terrific photographs, she helped us organize details on the day of the wedding.  She is amazing and nice to talk with.  It felt natural that she was there.  Mahalo to Heather, and we hope to see you soon when we come back to this magical island!

Ok.  I'm in love.  These are simply amazing.  AMAZING!  I teared up just seeing the first image.  Each one was my favorite until I saw the next one.  These are priceless.  Thank you for your beautiful talent.  You are so special.

Book Heather!!! Planning an elopement in Hawaii from across the Pacific can be hard.  We lucked out when we found Heather White, a local Big Island photographer. Not only were her photos so vivid and beautiful, but she captured our sweetest moments that day. I feel like I relive them every time I look through our photos. We eloped with no family or friends, and Heather being there as our wedding photographer also seemed to double as a heart-felt friend escorting us around the resort with wonderful conversation. I highly recommend Heather for your wedding or any other photo needs!!!

What an amazing evening! You set an intensity between Suzi and I with the photoshoot that carried thru to dinner. When we were finished, Suzi and I said that the photo shoot was one of the most romantic things we have ever done in Hawaii, and we felt like our love was rejuvenated by the experience.  You taught me how to look into my wife’s eyes!  Thank you again for such a memorable evening. 


Suzi + Ken

Justin and I just flipped through our photographs before we went to sleep - had to! - and the photos are GORGEOUS! You captured the moments beautifully!  Thank you so much, Heather!

Justin + Liza

We absolutely loved Heather White Images for our surprise engagement! We cannot recommend Heather more highly. She is incredibly talented and did a wonderful job with our photos. She is fun, relaxed, and professional to work with and really made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. She takes artistic, creative, and fun photos that captured our engagement perfectly! We could not be happier with our engagement photos. She was very prompt and generous in making the digital photos available and easy to share with friends.

Naomi + Fitsum

Heather came to our home for a family photo session and was absolutely incredible with my family. She had my daughter's favorite songs on her phone, was calm and patient with two kiddos, and captured the true craziness and essence of our family. My two-year-old daughter even gave her a hug and a kiss at the end of the session! The photos are gorgeous and are truly a treasure. I highly recommend Heather for any of your special events as you will not be disappointed!!

Chrysler Family

Heather is a class act and such a joy to work with!!! She made my daughter feel comfortable, confident, individual, and beautiful. Heather cares so much about getting the right vibe and ensuring she works with you before, during, and after her session to capture that special fleeting moment in time. We are grateful to have chosen Heather White to shoot our daughter’s gorgeous makai senior pictures.


I recommend Heather without any reservations! I have nothing but wonderful memories about our experience. My wife and I met her in 2012 when she shot our 5 year wedding Anniversary pictures.

She is the most personable, kind, and professional person you would ever hope to cross paths with. The photo shoot was perfect and the pictures came out amazing! If you are wondering who to hire for your professional photography needs while in Hawaii, look no further.

Heather is the best! 100%!

Ann + Miguel

Firstly, your photographs are stunning! They make our entire family so happy! Thank you for working so hard to get them finished that quickly! We appreciate it very much. I so enjoyed the time I got to spend with you last week - thank you for everything, Heather. 

Smith family

I'm in love with them!  You made my day!!!  Love, love, love!  Thank you so much Heather!  We loved getting to know you in such a short time.  We would love to see you again on our next visit to the Big Island.  We miss paradise already...

Christy + Natalie

Heather is an incredible photographer!!! She is very professional and down-to-earth. She has an effortless way about her that made me feel very comfortable. The pictures she took of our newborn son in hospital are priceless. I often look at the pictures and reminisce about the day my son was born. Heather captured the very first-time baby Leo met his siblings. It is one of my favorite memories of all time. About a week later, Heather came to our home and took some beautiful newborn shots of Leo. Her professionalism and work ethic are very impressive. I HIGHLY recommend her. Thank you so much, Heather!!!!

Baby Leo

Heather, these photos are AMAZING!!  We honestly can't believe that is us in those photos. We had no idea what to expect, but the preview has already blown our minds!  We can't wait to see the rest!

Carrie + Rahul

Heather did an anniversary photography session for my wife and I. She was nothing short of incredible! She made us feel so comfortable during our shoot, was great to work with, and so kind. The photographs were STUNNING! She caught our personalities perfectly. We love the Big Island and visit every year. Heather helped create amazing memories for us! We look forward to hiring her again in June for family photographs. We highly recommend Heather!

Kristal + Erich

Heather was extremely accommodating and professional.  She brought a delightful energy with her that allowed us to relax and enjoy being photographed.  She was able to stage our photographs without us feeling awkward or forced.  The entire experience was perfect and the finished product was excellent!

Victoria + Michael

Heather did senior pictures for my daughter.  She does not like to have her picture taken, but Heather made her feel so comfortable, and by the end of the session, she felt like a supermodel! She was very relaxed and had a lot of fun, which is evident in the photos. The setting my daughter chose had views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco Bay, and the photos were absolutely stunning! I HIGHLY recommend Heather for her professionalism and artistic ability.


When I looked at Heather's website, I know she was what I was looking for.  You only get that one chance to have that special newborn photo and should not leave it up to just anyone.  She truly knows what she is doing.  I have beautiful photos of my newborn daughter and everyone is raving about them.  Truly a very enjoyable and professional experience.

Baby Tia

We cannot thank Heather enough for taking such gorgeous photos of us on our wedding day-she is a true master of her craft!  Not only does she have the eye for taking stunning photos, she is extremely personable.  She make us feel so comfortable, like an old friend, yet she still maintained her professionalism.  We had so much fun with our photography, we wish it was had her for a longer time.

Cali + Mark

Heather can create a relaxing and natural environment. Her photos truly show how we feel, each photo filled with light and love. My favorite photo from Heather is one she took 10+ years ago, and each time it reminds me of how amazing our family is. That’s a gift. So thank you, Heather, for your amazing talent and care for others.


Heather is not only a fantastic photographer, but also a wonderful person.  Heather was so easy to work with and helped me put together a really fun proposal to my wife - girlfriend at the time.  Heather was an integral part of the "surprise" in my proposal, pretending as if she was doing a photoshoot of the two of us.  She played her role perfectly!  As a consequence, my wife and I have an unforgettable proposal that we can continue to cherish with every moment that was photographed.  Thanks Heather

Chandis + Stephen

Thank you for taking such beautiful expressive pictures. You definitely captured the spirit and personality of each of our children. These are pictures that we will cherish through the years. We did not realize you took so many pictures but we’re glad you did because you captured so many special moments. These moments pass with the blink of an eye but thanks to your eye they will always be there to look back on fondly.  If we ever go back to the Big Island, we will call on you again for another round. 

Mendoza Family

Extremely talented photographer! Heather was very sweet and professional. She also made herself available on short notice.

Morales Family

What an awesome experience! Heather made everything seamless. From scheduling to working with a newborn (diaper changes, feeding, etc.) and exhausted new parents. Heather's easy-going nature and genuine heart made her really easy to work with and have her in our home. Heather was able to capture our family so beautifully and create so many different shots in our little home. We are so happy with our photos. I recommend Heather to anyone looking for a professional, creative and intuitive photographer.

Baby K

We hired Heather to photograph our family while on vacation in Hawaii.  She caught us perfectly, individually and as a group.  I have had many of the photographs framed.  Every time I watch the video she created of our family, I cry happy tears.  The photos are a priceless memory of a wonderful time.

Harrison Family

The photographs are AMAZING!  Wow, so many beautiful ones and all the best moments captured!  And the reception photos are so much fun!  Thank you so very much for all of these.  I cannot wait to print some!  Thank you!

Jessica + Tuck

Thank you so much for sending along the photos. I have looked at them 100 times already! I can't wait to get some printed and give them to the grandparents. They are going to love it. You did such a great job wrangling us and being patient with our kids.  I hope you are doing well--we're jealous that we are not back in Hawaii right now. Thank you again!

Faulk Family

OH MY GAWD! I LOVE them!  Thank you so much!  These are great.  We just spent 45 minutes laughing and pouring over our pictures!  Heather, thanks so much for all of your work!  You are a really talented photographer and a nice person to boot!  Thank you for all of your help, including helping my dad with his boutonniere.  You were great!

Anne + Stephen

We cannot thank Heather enough for taking such gorgeous photos of us on our wedding day - she is a true master of her craft! Not only does she have the eye (and the fantastic technical skills) for taking stunning photos, she is extremely personable. She made us feel so comfortable, like an old friend, yet she still maintained her professionalism. Heather had ideas and suggested locations for shots, but she was very open to having our input. The combination was perfect! We had so much fun we wish it were longer, but alas, the sun had set, and dinner was waiting.

Cali + Mark

Heather White images, what a wonderful experience capturing our family photos during a recent family vacation! She was very interested and receptive to accommodating our time and day. Didn't seem rushed and was open to any pictures requested. I would highly recommend here if you on the big island and looking for family, couple, or individual pictures.
