Team Hera is truly a unique combination of skill and passion. You know you found a pretty special team when they invest a long time and effort on the right lighting and background for every frame so they can deliver that perfect picture you dreamed of. We saw their passion when they stayed late on both the engagement and the wedding shoots just to capture the perfect sunset for us. You can really tell they love what they do and we hope that Hera Studios can capture many more milestones in our lives.

Couldn't be more happy with the overall experience and final products. They're passionate about their work, have excellent style/artistic eye, and are genuinely kind and caring people. They made us feel at home, comfortable in an unfamiliar setting. We also really appreciated their flexibility in meeting times/days. They were able to see our vision for our wedding and captured it, spot on. I would highly recommend Hera to any newly engaged couple.
Sue & Fay
My husband and I worked with Hera on our wedding last September and we could not have been happier. Working with Hera was the easiest and best decision we could have made. They were punctual, professional, and often times did more than asked of them to ensure that everything leading up to and on the day of was picture perfect for us. Receiving the final product was amazing and right on schedule as promised. Quality was amazing and better than expected!

Nan & Jimmy
We chose Hera for our pre-wedding session and film and photography for our wedding day and Burmese ceremony. They went above and beyond our expectations, helped us feel natural in front of the lens and captured intimate moments and sentiments that we could not have ever imagined. Jimmy and I were so happy with their quality of work and even more so with the friendship we developed with the Hera team. We couldn’t be more grateful for having such a charming and talented group of creatives capture one of the most important events of our life. I would recommend them over and over and know this won’t be the last time we will be working with them.
Sarah & Billy
Hera really stood out to us because they took the time to get to know us, to make sure that not only were we a good fit for them, but they were a good fit for us. No pressure, no sales, just honest and upfront throughout the whole process. They really took the time to get to know us. They didn't use any cookie cutter template for location, style, theme etc and both the pictures and video turned out amazing!
Tammy & Cedric
Cedric and I are completely amazed and pleased with all the finished products from Hera! From the amazing and heartwarming video to the beautifully photographed photos. The crew worked long and hard hours on wedding day! Our friends and family gave us lots of compliments on our photo and videos... this is all thanks to Hera. Thank you for capturing our day and making it such a memorable one.

I came across Hera Studios at the wedding fair, and I instantly fell in love with their work. While I was talking and finding out information about them, my best friend was watching their short clips of weddings they had done and she was in tears, complete strangers she was watching but the way the films were done she felt so touched by how Hera Studios captured everyone's special moments. I had to have them for my wedding. They made the our wedding completely seamless and were accommodating to anything we needed. My biggest challenge is trying to pick pictures to have printed. Honestly from the bottom/tops/sides our entire hearts thank you thank you thank you, with lots of love your forever friends.
Kristine & Zia
We first met Hera Studios at a wedding show and fell in love with their work. The team was wonderful to work with from start to finish. All of them were friendly, professional and on-time re: scheduling, communication, and photo delivery, with each step in the process delivering quality experience with ease.
My husband and I are very awkward in front of cameras, and they tried their best to put us at ease and make sure we had fun. Both our engagement and wedding day photos turned out beautiful - natural, warm, and very 'us'.
Their photos also captured our parents at their best and most natural selves, and we are so grateful to be able to look at our wedding photos and see our parents with all their love and warmth. Zia and I couldn't be happier. Thank you!
Howard & Lauren
The whole team at Hera are the most helpful, personable, and efficient group me and my wife have met throughout our wedding process. We interviewed a lot of different vendors and the people at Hera were able to quickly grasp what we were looking for. They went above and beyond our expectations, throughout the process, and made our wedding day more than perfect! HIGHLY recommend the Hera team to be a part of your wedding day.

Nancy & James
Near the beginning we wanted to ensure we got the best photography and videography company that would meet our expectations as well as shoot the pictures and videos that match our style. Hera fit each and every piece of that puzzle. Their commitment to making the bride and groom happy on their wedding day to capture the memories they look for in photos and videos. They captured the day perfectly. I personally would recommend them hands down for all categories in value, customer service, relationship, professionalism, quality, and commitment.
I loved having the Hera team for our big day! They captured such beautiful photos and controlled distracting relatives all while working with a very limited amount of time. As someone who has never liked having my photo taken, they made me feel very comfortable and was good at suggesting lots of different poses for photos. Thank you so much! We will cherish the beautiful photos you took for the rest of our lives!
I was recommended Hera by a friend who used them and I loved how her photos turned out so I jumped at the opportunity to use them! We just received all of our photos and could not be more pleased with the outcome. Our wedding was in Whistler on a bright sunny day and the way they incorporated the light and natural backdrops made these like pieces of art.
My husband and I are not the most at ease in front of a camera, and the team made us feel really comfortable. We are so grateful to have had the Hera team present to capture our wedding for us, and strongly recommend them to all!!!
Hera has traveled around the globe, experiencing and documenting love in all shapes and forms. We witnessed stories that deserved to be on the big screen and have been a part of weddings that were on the big screen.

We came back for our 1-year-after with Hera, with a new addition to the family and was absolutely glad we did that! The team was professional, thoughtful and fun! They ensured I was comfortable in doing the poses they planned and made the session flawless. Not to mention how gorgeous their dresses are! Highly, highly recommended to all soon-to-be moms!
I was always camera shy and having to take maternity pictures is pretty nerve racking for me to say the least. Team Hera created an environment for me where I felt safe and comfortable. They also helped to guide me pose confidently and beautifully. The images turned out amazing! It was beyond my imagination. I shared it with my family and friends and I've received nothing but compliments! I would definitely book them again for my newborn baby session. Really looking forward to working with them again!
Sophia & Nick
I had a wonderful experience during my shoot with Hera. The team was very professional and made the experience very natural. Hera captured my maternity glow flawlessly. I'm super happy with how my photos turned out. Highly recommended!
The beginning of a new chapter
Motherhood is a great blessing. We wish to create an unforgettable experience that would help women to feel empowered, confident, and beautiful during their pregnancy. Each session will include dress rental, makeup and hair, and a customized moodboard catered to your desired style.

We recommend booking at least 2-3 months prior to secure your spot. The best time for maternity photoshoot is between 28 to 35 weeks of pregnancy. Ensuring that you and your baby are feeling safe and comfortable before the session is our top priority. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require a rescheduling due to any unforeseen health conditions and we will work together to find the most convenient date for you.
I tried Autobiography last year with my newborn and I returned this year to document how much my baby had grown! It's super fun, especially when I got the studio space all to myself. My baby and I felt super comfortable, being silly with each other in a private space.
I wasn't sure what to expect from our autobiography session when my friends brought me to Hera studios but OMG it was so much fun! We had the private space all to ourselves so we definitely channeled out our inner models. 20mins doesn't sound very long but it was more than enough time for us to do all the poses we could think of. If you do plan to go, highly suggest that you think of some poses beforehand to make the most of it!
I brought my girlfriend to this and because I had the trigger button the whole time, I was able to capture some really natural and candid shots of our interactions. It was super fun and she had a great time. We were able to keep all the digital images after so it was like an upgraded version of sticker pictures but more sophisticated and classy (iykyk).
