    Hey everyone, don't quote me on her prices but just to give you a ballpark she told me.
    Her 'shooting fee' is $1800 and this includes a full day on the day of the wedding and two mini events (e.g. TTD, rehersal dinner, brunch, etc.). It also includes her time for touching up photos, the full High Res disc with all the photos (capable of printing anywhere) with photos in black/white and color, an online gallery, and a slideshow set to music. In addition to this fee you pay for her hotel for 2-3 nights and her airfare (airfare alone from Chicago is $400-$600). Her airfare/accomodation can be split with another bride (if you can find one).
    Of note: if your wedding is mid-week e.g. Tues,Wed, Thurs she charges a reduced 'shooting fee', the price she gave me for my Wednesday wedding is $1200 + flight/accomodation.
    So based on this her total cost for me will be $1200 + $1500 (3 nights)= $2700 approx
    I still haven't 100% decided on her. We have some local photographers (2) that are AMAZING and shot my sisters wedding and did a great job.
    They are more expensive though ($5000) so I'm not sure which way I want to go. Check out JONETSU and let me know if you have any suggestions.
    Hope this helps.

      I'm also curious to know what her price is and the packages she offers. I really like a photographer in my city but to fly him down to shoot my wedding will cost me over $7000 including airfare and accommodation!!!

        Geez! That's my wedding bugdet!!
        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...

          i have been following her blog and facebook fan site for a while. from what i understand, the prices vary seasonally. i think it makes sense that if you are having a wedding during hurricane season where it is less popular, the prices are lower. when we inquired a while back she had shot destination weddings all over. so while we probably think of destination wedding as just tropical weddings in jamaica, there are lots of destination brides that travel outside the caribbean. for those of you who read the blog, looks like she recently traveled to do a wedding in palm springs. a while back she posted one in england too which looked like a very "indie" style and there were pics on some cliffs or something.
