All you need is Love

But Gorgeous pictures wouldn't hurt!

Hi there! My name is Heather Gillelan and I am the owner, face and heart behind the lens at Heather Lacey Photography! I live in Virginia Beach, Virginia, where you can find me laughing with my husband, Austin and our sons, River & Dawson, snuggling up with our black lab, Scout, or our sweet kitties, TIlly & Biscuit. When I'm not running around with my camera, you can catch me enjoying some caffeine while catching up with friends, or planning what to check off of my bucket list next! I am always up for an adventure, especially if they involve beaches or mountains! I am a lover of french macarons, monograms, & traveling. While I specialize in weddings, growing families also have a big spot in my heart!

"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Heather twice now, and she is spectacular! She has a way of making some awkward moments fun and easy! I would highly recommend Heather Lacey Photography!"

"I can’t even put into words with how pleased I was with heather’s work on our Christmas card photos! She is super professional, and kept us laughing our entire session! She also helped me choose the perfect pictures to go on our cards since I had never done them before! If you have a big moment you want documented, then DEFINITELY give her a call! You won’t be sorry!"

Taylor & Jonnie

"Where do I begin? Ive had multiple sessions with Heather and I keep coming back! From maternity to family pictures she has an eye for everything. She has a hilarious personality and she’s so easy to work with. It doesn’t matter if it’s your first time meeting her or you’ve known her for years she makes the whole session fun from start to finish. I can’t wait for our future sessions! Such beautiful work."
