The investment: Newlyweds share their experience.
We were so impressed from our initial meeting with Heather (via phone since we were planning our wedding long distance) and didn't think to look at anyone else! Beyond her professionalism her work is phenomenal. She has such a giftfor truly capturing the moment that my family and friends feel as though we are reliving the wedding day each time we look back at the photos. I highly, highly recommend Heather!
We love our wedding photos, and are so happy we chose Heather. She captured so many of the day's emotions -- moments that really made our wedding so special, and it is awesome to see the whole story of our day in the photos. My husband and I felt so comfortable, and it shows in the photos! She also got great shots of all of the little details that we put tons of time and heart into. Heather was very responsive throughout the planning process, and had great recommendations for other vendors, helping us put together an awesome team of people who worked well together and made the day flow seamlessly.
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.
When looking into wedding photographers, it can be confusing differentiating between packages. My collections feature photography coverage with a timeline review to ensure that the complete story of your wedding will be comprehensively documented in a stress-free manner. Beautiful wedding photography is an investment that will gain value as time passes. Because each couple has different plans for their wedding, I prefer to learn more about what you envision and see what options work best for you. Below, you will find pricing information.
On your wedding day, if more time is needed I am available for the unexpected. I will never cap the number of photos taken at your event and carry more than enough memory cards just in case. For larger or logistically challenging weddings, a second photographer is available. All customized wedding packages are crafted with purpose - I photograph for quality not quantity.
After your wedding, I personally spend close to forty hours personally hand-editing your wedding photos. I do not just edit the album winners, your entire set of photos will look amazing!
You want a photographer that invests in their gear and education, and pours their heart and soul into every aspect of being a wedding photographer. For me, that means I have the latest professional-grade cameras and lenses as well as superb backup equipment. Building smart partnerships and attending skill-building workshops is something I regularly devote time to. My membership with Canon Professional Services ensures my photographic equipment is covered for expedited repair and I have access to loaner gear in case my both my main and backup gear were out of commission.

How do I get that free airline ticket?
Most of my clients come to me from word of mouth. If you admire my photography and know someone who would like to hire me, please connect us. In 2023, for every couple referred to me who books me as a full day wedding package, you will receive a free domestic airline ticket. Terms and conditions apply!
Are your packages customizable?
ARE YOUR PACKAGES CUSTOMIZABLE?
No two weddings are the same, so all my packages are completely customizable. Get in touch to share details about your wedding with me so that I can create something that makes the most sense for your day.
Do you offer a second photographer?
I do offer second photographers for weddings where it makes sense to enlist another photographer. I would love to connect to learn about your wedding and photography requirements, I would be happy to help you figure out whether a second photographer would be beneficial or necessary for your big day. If you have a large wedding or feel that logistically it would make sense to have added coverage, I’d be happy to discuss this with you. Two of the most important things in working with a photographer is loving their portfolio of work and trusting their expertise and experience. After hundreds of weddings under my belt, I am confident in shooting a solid body of photos creatively and enthusiastically on your wedding day.
Do you travel for weddings?
My business is based in Chicago but I regularly photograph weddings in the Boston area many times a year since it is my second home. I've travelled on over 100 flights to photograph destination weddings. A few of the many places I have had the honor of working with couples in include Jamaica, Nevis, Puerto Rico, Canada, England, Scotland, California, Colorado, New York, Texas and Pennsylvania.
As a documentary photographer will you still take portraits?
While documentary photography is what will ultimately allow you to remember the grip of your father’s arms around you and the witty expressions of your maid of honor, there is still a very important place for formal portraits on the wedding day. My goal is to assist you in preparing beforehand to create a list of important family members to be photographed, and ensure this process is done efficiently to keep your schedule on track.
