We Have a Plan to Make You a Better Photographer

Welcome to the Flourish Academy for photographers. If you want to gain confidence, improve your photography, learn more about editing and even pursue a professional photography career, you are in the right place.

My name is Heather and I am the founder of Weddings by Heather and the Flourish Academy. With over 13 years of experience, I’ve been helping photographers refine their skills and feel ready to achieve their goals.

Do you need help organizing your photos?

I feel like i could write a million things and go on for days about Heather and her classes and how they have literally changed my life. It sounds silly and exaggerated to say it that way, but it’s the truth. Not only did I learn the techniques and tools for my photo editing, but I also gained the confidence in knowing that I could consistently deliver high quality images to my clients. That confidence and the efficiency that I learned allowed me to take my photography business and run with it. At the end of the day, what that has allowed me to do is spend less time shooting sessions and less time on the computer editing them. Now I have so many more hours each week to spend with my kiddos and husband…and that is priceless.

Heather’s guidance and workshops have changed my life.

She has given me the tools to achieve business growth. I can’t wait to see where I am going to be in the next year and I am so excited for the journey! I want to share Heather with the world because she is crazy smart, enlightening, energetic and hilariously funny. I am blessed beyond measure to call her a friend and mentor.

The knowledge and confidence that I walked away with after learning from Heather was literally addicting. I could not wait to learn more from her. I’ve taken her workshops and have had multiple private mentoring sessions with her as well. My editing time was very quickly cut in half, she helped me organize my business in a way that essentially gave me my life back. The time I have saved alone is worth everything to me in terms of being a profitable business and still having time for my family, but add to that the incredible confidence of knowing what I’m doing, making intentional, purposeful decisions and goals, and watching my business soar because of it has made my experience with Heather absolutely priceless.
