Voted The Knot Magazine Pick 2013 Best of Weddings and published 3 years in a row, I photograph weddings in glamorous hotels, rustic barns, and hip lofts. The one thing my couples all have in common is that they want real storytelling 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.

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. Read less

When we began planning our wedding it was so important that our vendors were talented, caring, and fun individuals. Needless to say we wanted to genuinely like them, but from the second we met, we loved Heather. Having a relative who is a wedding photographer, we got three tips on what to look for.

Find someone that has a creative style that you love.
Find someone that can take photos in dark halls without looking all grainy, blurred, or pixelated.
Find someone who's photos look like they were taken out of a movie scene.

Heather was all that. She was always available to talk throughout the planning process everything we discussed together had an undertone of ease to it, so when the big day came I was not a bridezilla. Our photos were very much in the moment and gorgeous. We get so many compliments that spanned several generations. Her photos are modern, creative and beautifully composed.

She arrived on time, got great shots of our guests without asking them to stop what they were doing for a shot, and delivered our photos before we moved overseas. We are grateful to have found an artist and a new friend.

Heather Parker is amazing! I got married a couple of weeks ago and couldn't be happier with Heather. Our engagement photos turned out beautifully and I although I haven't seen all of the wedding pictures, I am confident they too will be beautiful. Heather stayed the entire night of our wedding reception and captured moments of our reception I am sure I missed. She was on the dance floor (literally laying on the floor capturing the shots), standing on tables and chairs - everywhere! All of my guests raved at the fact that with all this, somehow she managed to not be "in your face". Professional, responsive, helpful at suggesting additional vendors (DJ, cakes, etc) - - truly a class act. Ladies, look no further - she's excellent and so easy to work with!

There isn’t enough room in a review to express our full appreciate and praise for Boston wedding photographer, Heather Parker. My wife and I were married in September at Commander’s Mansion in Watertown, MA. Right from the start Heather was prompt, responsive, and worked closely with us, to think through, how best to document our celebration. Neither of us had worked with a professional photographer before. Having Heather document our wedding felt natural and comfortable. We never felt like we were being staged or positioned in scenarios that weren’t natural to our personalities. From an outdoor ceremony held during the peak of the afternoon, to an indoor cocktail hour, to an outdoor evening dinner, under a tent lit with candles and lanterns, our wedding had a broad range of lighting scenarios that Heather had to manage. I’m thrilled to say that the photographs captured were amazing. One of the joy’s in viewing all of the images from start to finish, is seeing the progression of how our day unfolded and discovering all of the wonderful moments that were captured during that wonderful day. Heather not only captured the formal family portraits that were so important to us, but also those split second, once in a life time images, of our friends and family celebrating together. For us, being able to revisit and view those moments that were captured, that make us happy and grateful we were able to work with Heather Parker.

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. Another big plus with Heather is that she provides full resolution color and black and white DVDs (no watermark) for the photos. I highly recommend Heather!

We just got our pictures from our wedding and we absolutely LOVE them. Heather did such an amazing job capturing so many of the important moments, and did so with an incredibly high quality. We would highly recommend her to others. As with any important decision, it’s good to be informed so the following sums up our experience with Heather.

Some of the many positives:
-She was very easy to reach throughout the planning process
-An engagement shoot was included which helped all of us feel more comfortable together
-She and her assistant had a very subtle and unobtrusive presence at the wedding (some guests didn’t even realize there were photographers floating around), while still capturing TONS of meaningful moments and scenes.
-Incredibly beautiful and high quality photos (both given in an online gallery and a DVD with all of the digital photos to use as we wish)
-Beautiful photojournalism style of capturing the day

Some aspects of her style/work that people should be aware of:
-She’s passionate about her photojournalistic style, so she openly admits that the posed family & bridal party portraits are not as much of an interest or strength for her. We had to be more assertive about what we wanted in this category and she followed through with our requests. Regardless of her limited interest in portraits, those pictures turned out great. For one portrait she even got a toddler to stop crying long enough for a picture by getting everyone else to start singing a song. It was a genius move!
- She didn’t stick around for all of the dancing, and in turn missed a few moments that would have been nice to capture. In the grand scheme she still got so many great shots that it wasn’t too much of an issue.
-A lot of friends who got married around the same time as us got their photos quicker than we did (we got ours around 2 months after). The pictures were worth the wait though and it was really fun to relive the day after we had gotten back into the normal swing of life.

Thank you so much for all your kind words Elizabeth! Your wedding was one of the coolest I photographed at the farm, and I am so happy I was a part of it. I'm sorry to hear some really fun shots happened after our contracted time, and even happier that you loved all the photos so much!

Heather photographed our wedding, and the pictures were incredible - she takes beautiful, creative shots outdoors, indoors, bright light, dim light, everyone dancing around, you name it - if it's there, she'll get a gorgeous shot of it. She's super resourceful, too, and was able to charm the owners of a nearby private dock to let us take photos on their dock. Very professional, great at what she does, and artistic.

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. - Reynold's-

Heather was such a pleasure to work with. Paul and I first hired her for our engagement shoot, almost two years before our actual wedding! She has such great artistic style and vision. We have only seen about 10 of our wedding photos so far, but they are amazing and we can't wait to see the rest! We couldn't have asked for a better photographer for our wedding day. If you want timeless, breath taking candid photos, than Heather is the way to go. You will not be disappointed.

What a wonderful early Christmas present we got this morning as we were able to spend hours looking through our wedding photos. I could hardly wait to see them and now that they are here I don't know how I am going to be a good house guest as I am sure that I will be sneaking away to the computer for a few more hours! Besides for the two of us picking each other as husband and wife, picking our wedding photographer was the second most important thing to us because we wanted someone who would be able to capture exactly how we felt about eachother and how everyone else saw our love. We are so absolutely lucky to have found Heather Parker and we couldn't be happier! Thank you, Heather Parker (x 1,000,000) and Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!!
