Best of Weddings 2016 from The Knot Magazine awarded to documentary wedding photographer Heather Parker!

As a documentary style wedding photographer, I am always on the lookout to report the best eye-catching moments that showcase adoration and joy. This technique is what I live by. Couples have spoken, and selected me for The Knot Magazine Best of Weddings annual list of the best and most-rated vendors again. I'm honored, and look forward to another exciting year of creating a visual story with my camera.

Your wedding day is about you, so as the photographer on such an important day, I let moments unfold naturally and stay out of the way as much as possible. I tell stories using photographs – photos that bring you back into that split-second, and when these images are viewed together, they narrate without having to say a word. After your wedding, I spend close to forty hours personally hand-editing your wedding photos. I do not just edit the album winners or ones that make it on my website, your entire set of photos will look amazing. If you'd like to free your digital photos from the confines of your computer, I offer the latest 2016 Queensberry Albums lineup.


My portfolios and blog will allow you to get a feel for the style of artistic, documentary photography I offer. You can learn more about my services, pricing and availability. I travel regularly throughout the country and world, and welcome destination assignments. In order to give all my clients the time and attention they deserve, I take on a limited number of commissioned weddings per year.

Some of my all-time favorite wedding venues include Boston's Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel, the Boston College Club and the Omni Parker House Hotel, as well as Gallery 1028, University Club of Chicago, and Cafe Brauer in Chicago. For destination weddings, some of my favorites are Moon Dance Villas along with their sister resort Moon Dance Cliffs in Negril, Jamaica, Trident Hotel & Castle in Port Antonio, Jamaica, and the Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi.

Wedding Photographer ranked top 5% of wedding photographers nationwide for 2015!

I am thrilled to share that I was again awarded the WeddingWire Couples' Choice Award! The winning photographers were determined by recent client reviews in recognition of excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism within the wedding industry. Thank you to all my past clients for your thoughtful photographer reviews. The recognition I have received feels amazing and I know the feedback is useful to newly engaged couples as well!

Award-winning Chicago Photographer

In addition to Boston, Chicago is also considered home for Chicago wedding photographer Heather Parker. She creatively employs the latest techniques to document weddings in a way that is modern, but will stand the test of time. If photos are too trendy with Instagram-style filters, they will look outdated in a year. Heather's true love is telling stories with the camera. The documentary wedding photography that she has become known for has earned her The Knot Best of Weddings award and has had photos featured in the real weddings section of The Knot Magazine many times.

Because Heather was trained to photograph with available light, many of Chicago's darkest venues share her name with engaged couples in search of wedding photographers that excel in challenging situations. The University Club of Chicago, The Drake Hotel, Gallery 1028, and the Union League Club of Chicago are some of the darkest venues she is frequently entrusted to photograph weddings in. No matter how dark your wedding venue is, you will get crisp, vibrant, beautiful images.

Head over to her Chicago wedding blog to see what she's been up to.

"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 gift for 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!"
