Wedding Date: 3/6/2016

Location – Fort Smith, Arkansas – Fort Smith Convention Center

“The lead up to my wedding could have been the most stressful time of my life. However, Heather was not only super understanding that having a toddler means that we most likely wouldn’t get all the shots, but she was flexible when my work schedule suddenly doubled and we needed to reschedule one of my shoots. I was terrified that I was going to meet her and end up feeling awkward, but even with my social anxiety, Heather felt like another friend. She genuinely made my wedding photos a breeze, and they came out so amazing! The price was amazing, the pictures were stunning, and Heather was the best. I would hands down recommend her and plan to use her in the future for all of my photo needs.”

King Wedding - Fayetteville Arkansas

Wedding Date: 2/7/2015

Location – Fayetteville, Arkansas – Mount Sequoyah

“Heather Owen’s talent is why you choose Life’s Etchings to photograph your priceless moments. When we selected Heather as our photographer, we only discovered later that we had selected THE BEST!!!! Heather reviewed the chapel and reception to proactively plan for lighting and to develop her initial shot list (in addition to ours). She is the master of time management and I would not have even known how to cut the cake if she had not been a trusted voice in my head.

She does more than make the shot look good. She helps to create the event. She became part of the wedding party. She was always there!!! She captured moments I did not remember, except through her photographs.

No matter where life takes us, Heather Owen will be there during our most important moments. I would recommend her to anyone and specifically to first time brides. She is not only a photographer, but also a walking wedding guide!!!”
