My Background


Based out of Berea Kentucky, I’ve been shooting for a few years now. In high school I ran the photojournalism department for our newspaper. After graduating from Garrard County High School, I started documenting beautiful moments of friends and family members. I studied with world renowned professors of photojournalism at Western Kentucky University in 2012.  In 2016, I started my own business and never looked back. It has been an amazing journey with lots of challenges and learning moments along the way.

The Lady Behind the Lens


I’m Heather, the owner & principal photographer of Guiding Light Photography. I love being able to share my passion for beautiful images that last for years to come and feel blessed to get to work with such wonderful people each day! I am the wife of a Navy Veteran, and mother of 3. I was born in Danville Ky and raised in Berea Ky from the age of 5. I love this Kentucky home and all the beauty that it provides for gorgeous client sessions.

Sharing Stories


 A photographer is such a great way to help document some of the most important seasons of any families life. My goal is to capture your once in a life-time moments so that they will last your family longer than a life-time. Working with each client is it's own unique experience that I cherish and I love meeting new people and telling their own unique story through my images. I would love to tell your story as well.


The Big Day


We love Heather!! She is a dream to work with! Our photos turned out stunning. I had no idea she was even running around capturing half of the beautiful images and yet she still captured every moment I wanted captured and so much more. She adapts flawlessly to boiling hot engagement sessions to freezing wedding days! But you’d never know either of those days were like that from her photos. Everything looks flawless! I would highly recommend her. So professional and easy to work with and such beautifully captured moments!

Life Moments


We absolutely love our daughter's prom pictures! They were beautiful! She was very flexible with the time, and spent way more than most would with the kids. I couldn't believe I actually had my online gallery available that same night! Wow! We were blown away by the talent and professionalism of this photographer! We definitely plan to use her for our upcoming events.

Family Memories


Never disappointed with the photos she takes, she captures every moment perfectly. I'd recommend her to anyone, and love to show off the pictures she takes of me and my family.
