The Details

We are Payal and Abhishek Patel, a married photography team who work with awesome and unique couples in Chicago. We love getting to know new people and providing them with great photos of their wedding, engagement or special event. It’s important to us to bring out the best in our couples and have their personalities and style shine though. The way we work is personable, laid back, and a little non-traditional. We know how important your day is. And we know how important it is to trust your photographer. You get one shot at this—it’s important to do it right. We are here to guide you through the process and we love getting to know people, what’s important to you, how you met, etc. Getting to know your story allows us to incorporate your personalities into your event and make your images unique to you. Our goal as artists is to craft photographs that are a timeless, creative and a genuine portrayal of your wedding celebration as it unfolds. As narrators, we want to show the emotion of the day through amazing portraits and breathtaking use of light. We have years of experience working together as a team. A seamless, unspoken connection. We are each other’s doubles and believe this is key in achieving true wedding photojournalistic coverage. From our emotional getting ready photos, to our breathtaking portraits, your wedding will be photographed just the way you imagined it!
