I specialize in small celebrations, such as: Baby & Bridal Showers, Engagement Parties, Mitzvah’s and Birthday Parties (Sweet Sixteens, adults & kids!).


When I photograph a celebration, I always:

  1. Show up early to photograph the venue, the decorations and every little detail.
  2. Photograph continuously throughout the party to capture many candid moments as well as some planned group portraits, so that every guest will be remembered through my photographs.
  3. Stay alert and on my toes throughout the entire event to foresee the action that is about to take place and position myself to be able to capture it from the best angle.
  4. Stay until the very end to capture each & every moment.


$300 per hour which comes with high resolution digital files.

After your images have been delivered you have the option to purchase custom designed albums and print products!

Additional Info:

I usually shoot events alone, but a second shooter can be hired upon request for an additional fee.

I am not currently booking any weddings.

Heather Palecek Photography is located in Hamilton Township, NJ but I travel all throughout NJ for the events that I photograph. I have and am willing to travel outside of NJ for events. {Fee may be required}
