Reviews and Raves

Forming relationships and wowing clients with amazing photos is my goal, so it means everything to me when someone takes a moment to write me a thank you note. If you are looking for wedding photographer reviews, out what my clients have to say!

Heather Parker is a talented, fun, artistic photojournalist and we were lucky that she was available for hire on our wedding day. She was able to capture very meaningful and memorable shots but by blending into the crowd without adding ANY undue stress. It was incredible and I am not certain how she was able to accomplish the task.  Brian and I were married in Boston and really wanted a photographer that would fully engage in the most special day of our lives, we searched for the best and found her! Heather travels the world so we instantly had a connection. It felt like she really knew us and captured the love that binds us from this day forward. The detail and quality of her work is impeccable. You will be amazed. No questions asked she is the right choice.

I have had the pleasure of working with Heather Parker on numerous occasions in some of Chicago’s grandest ballrooms. She is super fun to work with, always enthusiastic and professional. She takes AMAZING photos! She has been kind enough to share some wonderful photos with our band over the years and I am just blown away by the unique and beautiful images!

A good wedding photographer is one that catches the only single moment of your life you looked like a competent dancer…

As a DJ that frequently works 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-and her talent as a photographer is exceptional. Myself and many members of my DJ roster have had the pleasure of working with Heather, and its always been such a positive experience. If you’re in the market for a photographer for your wedding, I would highly recommend Heather, without hesitation.

After meeting her for just a few minutes and seeing her unique photojournalistic style, we hired her on the spot and cancelled our future appointments. She has a great sense of humor and was relaxed but thorough throughout the planning process and on the day. She really caught the feel of the day, from the getting ready pics, the emotion of the ceremony, and the candid moments, to the overall look/feel of the reception. When it started snowing, we were doubtful of how many good pics we would get around the city, but Heather’s creativity led to some amazing photos that we constantly receive complements on. And to top it all off, she put together the most incredible wedding album that I could ever imagine! Thank you Heather for being part of that amazing day!

Jaqui McVey, Intercontinental Hotel Wedding

Heather photographed my wedding and she was amazing! Her photos of our day were featured in The Knot Boston Magazine – a testament to how talented she is. I read a million blogs and reviews and when I landed on Heather’s page I loved it immediately. She has a gorgeous sensibility that is artistic but not over-the-top. She has an incredible talent for documenting the day authentically but making everything seem just that much sweeter. She was responsive, prompt, honest and also just really fun to be around. She also shot engagement photos of us in NYC and her photos of us on the Brooklyn Bridge were beyond. I think it’s actually pretty important that you like the vibe of your photographer because they’re a big presence on your wedding day, and Heather is just calm and cool and great.

Karen Silverman, Smith Barn wedding

When searching for a wedding photographer, brides can easily get overwhelmed with the many options or scared off by awkward interactions. Neither of these things took place when speaking Heather for the first time. She showed us some images of same-sex weddings that she shot in the past which further dissolved any fears we might have had. She went above and beyond any vendor we worked with. The finished product is everything we could have asked for and more. So when deciding on a photographer and planning a same-sex wedding, choose someone who makes you feel comfortable. Someone you won’t question, and someone who won’t question you. Someone you feel certain will allow the day to flow smoothly without a glitch. Heather met all of these expectations and then some.

We’ve had the distinct pleasure of working with Heather Parker on dozens of occasions over the years. She’s an absolute joy to be around and clearly has a deep rooted passion for her craft. In a day and age where everyone with an Instagram account claims to be a photographer, Heather hushes the crowd with her art.

Heather Parker may be the best photographer I have ever worked with, I joke, she totally is. Her skill and artistry are insane. She will make you, your guests and your party look awesome! You will love your photos, as will your friends and family. We LOVE when she takes picture of our events. She makes our food, our space and even our team look awesome.

I don’t think a better combination of talent exists and I couldn’t have dreamed of a better partner to capture the most important day of our lives – so, seriously – stop searching, meet with Heather, and if her photographic style is right for you – trust that she will capture every aspect of your event flawlessly and exceed your expectations at every turn.

Whitney Wolf, Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel wedding

When I started planning our wedding, I was addicted to websites and reading other vendor reviews.  Heather’s name was one of the most popular ones listed.  I looked at her work online and knew I wanted her to photograph our wedding. The minute my fiance met her and saw her work, he was impressed.  She absolutely knows her stuff and has taken gorgeous photos…. Heather’s photographs and what she can do without a flash is amazing…. Heather is worth every penny and is an amazing photographer and we keep getting compliments on the photos.

Cynthia, Peninsula Hotel wedding

When we selected Heather to be our wedding photographer, my fiance and I wanted someone who was talented, artistic, easy to get along with, and someone who had an eye for detail. We have found all of these qualities in Heather.

Victor and Nicole, Holy Name Cathedral

FABULOUS! If she’s available for your wedding, book her. Aside from being a very creative shooter, Heather is very comfortable to work with which is critical because it really shows in your pictures. She really cares about what she’s doing and that really shows in the quality of her photos. I have nothing negative to say, Heather was wonderful. I remember what the day felt like every time I look at my photos.

Allison Liccar, Madonna Della Strada wedding

She did not disappoint. she was creative and took advantage of the moments where something unique might look nice in our background. The room we had at the University Club was a little dark, but she managed to not make that an issue. Once we got our pictures back, in the time she had promised, we couldn’t have been happier. Heather captured the pure joy we were feeling in so many candid shots that I couldn’t have imagined. We had such a positive experience.
