About Heather Parker Photography

What my couples all have in common is that they want REAL unscripted photography so they can remember the laughter, tears, nervousness and all the emotions that go along with having a wedding. I look for honest moments that highlight the feelings and personality of those closest to you during a very important day. Years later, these photos will serve as an heirloom and allow you to not just remember the pretty smiles all around you, but the very character of those who made your wedding so memorable.

Voted The Knot Magazine Pick Best of Weddings and published 7 years in a row, I photograph weddings in glamorous hotels, rustic barns, and hip lofts.

Some areas I have traveled for shoots include are Japan, Italy, Hawaii, Nantucket, Jamaica, Spain, Martha's Vineyard, New Orleans, Vermont, Puerto Rico, Toronto, Japan and New York City.

I welcome the opportunity to speak with you about how wedding photojournalism could be an ideal choice for you.

    Heather Parker was an amazing photographer and very easy to work with. We loved her photojournalist style, emphasizing natural candid moments rather than posed portraits. We were lucky to have her, and would highly recommend her to anyone.

    Ross and I were married on July 21 of this year. Like most couples, getting a great photographer was important to us. After doing research and calling many (as is expected, Chicago has a fair number of wedding photographers), I ran into heather as our potential photographer.

    Immediately, we clicked on the phone. I think we talked for over 30 minutes. Heather is extremely thorough and takes her job seriously. She wants to get the best pictures possible for you and she doesn't beat around the bush about it. I so appreciated all her pointers and tips. Towards the end of the planning process, I turned to her to ask questions to make sure she thought it would be okay with the pictures.

    We had so much fun with her at our engagement session and loved how our pictures turned out. She was so helpful and caring at the wedding, and our wedding photos received so many compliments. Ross and I are so happy we went with Heather.

    We interviewed several other photographers and once we met with Heather, we knew she was the perfect fit. Her knowledge of the University Club and the several tips that no one else had shared with us gave us the certainty that we made the right decision. I've never seen anyone move more quickly to get the perfect photo. Heather didn't hesitate to tell people where to go and what to do to keep us on schedule. We enjoyed working with Heather, but never expected both our engagement photos and wedding pictures could turn out as well as they did! We have so many amazing photos to remember such a special day.

    Heather Parker Photography's reply:

    Hi Sarah! I'm so glad you value my quick thinking and ability to direct guests for group shots - that is definitely a big factor in keep a wedding day on schedule. You University Club of Chicago wedding was one of my favorites, but your ceremony was especially dear with many of your students present!

    First off, check out Heather's portfolio-it speaks for itself, and is outstanding. Secondly, as a vendor that does private functions on a regular basis, Heather is the sort of person I love running into at events, as she's exceptionally professional, friendly, and courteous. If you're in the market for a photographer, without hesitation, I would highly recommend Heather.
