LA & NYC Photographer
My name is Heidi Garcia and I offer LA & NYC professional photography. I specialize in photographing people. Services include wedding, family, engagement, branding, boudoir, headshot and maternity photography. For all photography sessions, I aspire to create works of art, focusing on creative compositions and natural moments. I’m best known for my genuine character and documentary style. My goal as a photographer is to document the human experience in a beautiful way and I hope to empower others with my photography. One of my goals as a Los Angeles wedding photographer is to tell your love story.
The first time I found myself in front of the camera I felt nervous and didn’t know what to do. Not surprisingly, in some of the photos, I looked stiff and pretending, instead of my usual down-to-earth self.
If you’re anything like me, you know that it’s not so easy to relax in front of a camera. But feeling comfortable and confident is so important to getting lovely, natural-looking photos … where you look like you and not like a tense, cookie-cutter version of you.
That’s why I believe that a photographer’s work is not only inside the lens. My work begins with getting to know you beyond a surface-level relationship, so that I can help you lean into your personality on camera.
I use a combination of documentary-style photography and lifestyle photography, which means I’ll capture your real, in-the-moment emotion, but I’ll also subtly direct you so that you look amazing in your photos.
I LOVED working with Heidi!
She was so friendly and made you feel comfortable right away, and actually cares about getting you good pictures. I’m usually super picky about photos and it’s rare that I like pictures that other people take of me, but I actually loved the photos that Heidi took of me! She’s not only a great photographer, but she’s a really sweet person and I highly recommend anyone to get their photos taken by her!
Heidi is very good at what she does.
Prior to meeting for our photography session, we shared and collected ideas for days to make the most of our time and to capture what I wanted. Heidi is open minded and works together with you. While shooting my pregnancy pictures, her attention to detail was impressive. Heidi noticed all our surroundings and adjusted accordingly to make sure the picture is the best it can be. My partner and I were very satisfied with Heidi’s work, the pictures were beautiful, colorful and lively. My partner and I’s favorite picture is one that we were not even posing for, we were just being us and Heidi was able to capture that special moment. I do highly recommend Heidi as she is professional, friendly and is sure to capture your special moments.
Heidi is simply such an Amazing and talented photographer!
She did our wedding photos in the middle of the pandemic. She was very creative in picking the location and matched exactly what we wanted.
We loved all our pictures. She was able to let us have all our beautiful pictures! I loved the black and white version of our pictures too.
She sent us 14 pictures in the same night and the rest of our pictures in a few days after the wedding.
She was very professional and at the same time very easy to talk to. She had her mask on the whole time during the 5 hours too.
We recommend Heidi for our friends and family and looking forward to working with her in the near future!
This was the best photo session I’ve ever been a part of.
Heidi is an amazing photographer and an even better person. She has a way of making you feel comfortable in front of the camera. The whole experience was genuine and sincere. The pictures came out beautifully and I have already recommended her to people I know. I am very thankful and happy that I had the opportunity to work with her.
Heidi took photos of me working for my website and marketing materials and I couldn’t be happier with them.
She’s discreet and made me feel totally at ease. My photos are fantastic, capture me and my work and I get lots of compliments on them. It was an excellent investment for my business and I highly recommend Heidi.
Heidi did an incredible job capturing the emotions and energy of my wedding day.
She was present but at the same time I barely noticed her presence. Her photos came out amazing and I have not stopped looking at the photos since I received them.
What I love most about her work is how not staged the photos came out. I am someone who is pretty uncomfortable during staged photos and she managed to capture portraits of my husband, family and bridal party in a way that felt natural to me.
I can’t sing her praises enough. I would recommend her to anyone and have already encouraged a number of my engaged friends to consider her.
Los Angeles Wedding Photography & New York Wedding Photography
Los Angeles & New York are colorful backdrops for genuine-feeling photos. My two home-base cities are perfect places to create unique photos of my clients. Los Angeles in particular offers an incredible variety of landscapes and moods to shoot against—like the flat-sand beaches of Santa Monica and Venice, the cliffside oceans of Malibu, the cacti-lined hiking trails of Eaton Canyon Falls, the retro backdrops of Hollywood, and the restored Art Deco buildings in Downtown LA. Every neighborhood feels like a different world, from the edgy warehouse lofts in the DTLA Arts District to the high-tech, airy feel of Culver City and Marina Del Rey.
That’s why Los Angeles is ideal for capturing the vibrant sides of my clients. Whether I’m shooting Los Angeles wedding photography at the Descanso Gardens or Los Angeles personal branding photography at the whimsical Santa Monica pier, I love to incorporate the energy of the city into every shot.
You’re so much more than a crossed-arms, tight smile, rehearsed head-tilt pose.
