We Love Weddings!
In 2003, Heather MacEachern founded HRM Photography in London, Ontario after graduating from Ryerson University’s Photography program. In 2005, she joined forces with Lindsay Ross, a Humber College Photogaphy graduate (who photographed Heather’s own wedding) and expanded HRM Photography into the GTA. The following year, Fanshawe Photography program graduate Niki Patel became the duo’s office manager and associate photographer, and officially completed the HRM team.
What sets HRM Photography apart from others? The three "E"s!!
- Education (ALL of our main shooters & assistants have diplomas from respected photography programs!)
- Experience (We've photographed over 900 weddings!)
- Enthusiam (When we say we love weddings, we really, really mean it!)
Heather, Lindsay and Niki all share a similar style to the craft and a passion for capturing unforgettable wedding day memories. Their unobstrusive & laid back approach helps create a carefree, relaxed dynamic which fosters a great relationship with their clients. This provides them with many opportunities to create stunning photographs that will bring you back to every moment of your wedding day.
Now celebrating their thirteenth year of business, HRM Photography is proud to be an award-winning member of numerous photography organizations, including the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers, Fearless Photographers and the Professional Wedding Photographers of Canada.

HRM Photography is passionate about giving back to the community. In 2015 Heather co-founded Love Never Ends, a not for profit organization photographing the terminally ill and their families.

Meet Heather - Owner / Photographer
I have been drawn to photography for as long as I can remember...
When I was 13 years old, I began documenting the local music scene of London, Ontario. It was at this point that my interest in photography turned into a full blown obsession! Since then, my live music and promotional band photography has appeared in national and international press such as the Globe and Mail, Elle Magazine and the Toronto Star. My work as also been used by numerous bands and musicians for their CD artwork and promotional material.
In September, 1999 I moved to Toronto to follow my dreams of becoming a professional photographer. In April of 2003, I graduated from Ryerson University's Photography program with a BFA, honours. While at Ryerson I discovered my ability to capture the sentiment and energy of the live music experience carried over perfectly to recording the emotion and beauty of a wedding day. By the end of 2016 I will have photographed over 600 weddings!
My photojournalistic eye, artistic flair, attention to detail and unobtrusive approach are the perfect qualities that enable me to capture you looking and feeling your best on your wedding day!
Meet Lindsay - Associate Photographer
The moment I discovered my passion for photography, there was nothing else in the world that I wanted to do. I see the world clearly through the lens of a camera. It was a natural decision for me to study photography in college and in April 2004, I graduated from the Creative Photography program at Humber College. While at Humber, I began assisting various Toronto wedding photographers - Heather being one of them. We both realized quickly that we share a similar style, passion and approach when it comes to photographing weddings.
I love to capture the true emotion and beauty of people as they celebrate the special moments in life. I feel that photographing a wedding is such a wonderful experience, as you are helping people preserve memories that they will cherish forever. By the end of 2016 I will have photographed over 350 weddings!
My fresh personality and friendly, unobtrusive approach will make you and your guests feel at ease and ensure fantastic photos of your wedding day!
Meet Niki - Associate Photographer / Office Manager
My love for photography started when I was in high school and I quickly decided that the best way to develop my skills was to study photography through Fanshawe's three-year photography program.
My co-op placement at Fanshawe led me to HRM Photography - Heather and Lindsay instantly made me feel like a part of the team! I officially began working with HRM in 2006 as Lindsay's second shooter in Toronto and in 2009 I moved back to London to take on my role as the company's office manager and associate photographer. By the end of 2016 I will have photographed over 100 weddings as the primary shooter, and have photographed even more than that as a second shooter!
There are so many things I love about wedding photography, but most of all I feel that capturing the full story of a couple's big day is so important. Wedding photographs allow a couple and their families to cherish and relive their wedding day forever.
Like the rest of the HRM team, my love for photography keeps me passionate, and my laidback approach ensures that we capture real images while still having fun.
I'm so excited to be a part of your day, and even more excited to help you remember it forever!
