My name is Ted Parker Jr. I love people, music, and photography.
In my spare time, I love running, playing with my pup (our sweet Vizsla Bodie) and watching movies. I am a lover of BBQ, a good cheeseburger and Mint Chocolate Chip Blue Bell ice cream ... which is one reason why I love running. But mostly, I love living life with my beautiful wife Kaaren, and our two awesome teenage daughters.
Throughout my life, I have been photographing, filming and capturing the beauty of life and relationships. I was born and raised in the Chicago area close to Lake Michigan. After Graduate School in Television and Film I moved to Southern California, close to the Pacific Ocean where I shot high end and celebrity weddings. Today I photograph all kinds of people; entertainment industry clients, musicians/concerts, national and local politicians, as well as family and friends. But I absolutely love photographing couples getting married, what could be better? Seriously, there is so much joy and happiness with two families and friends together. I am honored and truly privileged to capture the celebration of the beginning of a marriage.
I am now based in Austin, TX, close to Lady Bird Lake. I love the people, the music, and the food. But I am willing to travel to your destination to photograph your amazing wedding.
All and all I am a wedding photographer who loves to tell your wonderful, beautiful story.
