    We got a recommendation from our travel agent to look into Heather Parker for our wedding photos. Our TA doesn't have good things to say about working with local companies in Jamaica or the hotels for photography. I looked her up on Yelp and she has higher reviews than just about any other photographer and we are very close to booking with her but before I did, I wanted to see if any other destination brides have booked with her. Has any one met with her? Has anyone met with her personally?

      we booked with her. a lot of couples on here are using her i think. she wasn't super cheap. you can probably find someone to shoot your wedding for free but everything i have seen of her photos is just breathtaking and worth it. we spoke with her and she is friendly and down to earth and knew the island.

      when we researched her, we learned that her work was in The Knot in the best of issue last year. if you go to her website i think if you click on the blog button you can get in touch with her.

        We actually booked her for our wedding too! We live in Chicago so we were able to meet with her in person and were VERY impressed! She is truly an artist and will do everything she can for you to make sure your wedding pictures turn out perfect (at least that is the impression I got!) :) We lover her work and are so excited to have her shoot our wedding. That is one thing I am NOT stressed about!!!

          She's our photographer...and I'm so glad we booked her. She's really nice and down to earth...she's super responsive to emails and she's an all around nice woman. We're gonna do a skype chat in the near future so we can "meet" b4 the wedding next year.
          I've booked Heather Parker for my photographer for my April 2, 2011 wedding in Ochi Rios, Jamaica. If anyone is getting married in Jamaica days before or after me and is interested sharing her travel expenses to save few wedding budget bucks, let me know. Take a look at her work for Moon Dance...

            She is our photographer too. All of her pictures are so colorful and natural we are excited to have a real photojournalist come with us to our wedding for photos.

              Yes she is a very popular US-based destination photographer who is familiar with Jamaica and does weddings there. She gives a lot more then the other photographers with her packages and that is probably why so many brides use her, aside from the fact that it is the photojournalism style.

                  I would be interested to see some of her pictures of Jamaica weddings - her website doesnt let you choose by resort and some rough prices would be good. Thanks.

                    When I was looking into hiring her, I was more drawn to her styl eand photojournalism. She hadn't done a wedding at our resort but her style is breathtaking and I wasn't worried. I don't think its a photographer's job to profile resorts anyways.
