Wheaton, IL
  • Fine art style
  • Starts at $3,000
  • Serves Algonquin, IL

My name is Jana Blue and I've been photographing weddings for 10 years. I'm consistent not in a trend of photos or style, but emotions. Each wedding and couples are so unique and my work follows that. In my career I've photographed both big production weddings and also intimate DIY ones. I've photographed informal engagements and elopements/weddings in a desert in Chile, in the mountains of Zion, in a beach in Croatia, in an ancient church in Greece and in forests in Brazil. I work with all different budgets and needs from my brides. I'm a preferred vendor of Chicago First Lady Boat, so I do weddings on the boat during the summer.

I got married August 20th 2021 and I am beyond thrilled with the entire experience I had with Jana!She worked with us to learn our styles and what was important to us. She did both our engagement and wedding photos and both were beautiful! She was so wonderful to work with in such a stressful time for us brides!! Book Jana and you won’t regret it!

DeAnda Photography

Algonquin, IL
  • Classic style
  • Starts at $3,585

Hi, Im Carol DeAnda, born and raised in the southwest suburbs and now living in Lake in the Hills Illinois, with my studio in downtown Algonquin. I have always been the one with the camera since grade school, but it wasn't until high school I realized that this could be my calling. After high school, I attended Harrington College of Design for the Digital photography program and started on my path to becoming a professional photographer. I am a PPA member and CPP (Certified Professional Photographer) and hold the Master Wedding Photographer degree from PPA, as well as a member of The Wedding Equality Alliance.

Carol and her team are ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL when it comes to photography! The work is second-to-none, the professionalism is always consistent, and everyone is always so friendly! :) I have been working alongside Carol at weddings for several years now. As a DJ, it can be tough to communicate with vendors and make sure everyone is always ready to go. This is definitely not the case with Carol. I'm able to find her in a moment's notice and she's ready to capture those precious moments in an instant! Not to mention, her genuine love for her clients. Each and every couple that she works for she gives her all - and that not only shows on the day of an event, but also in her work. Carol and her team edit and produce SOME OF THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHY WORK I HAVE EVER SEEN. Seriously. If you haven't checked out her portfolio, do it now. Carol has an eye for not only capturing your ideas, but also the tiny details that no one else would ever think about. Do yourself a favor a book with Carol and her team.

Hey there! Kataryna here. Thanks for checking out my work. I never thought that I would have the opportunity to meet you and everyone else that I have throughout my photography journey. I started photography in high school and fell in love with all that my camera and I could do. In my college years at the University of Iowa, I was able to strengthen my photography skills by taking an internship with a wedding company. Shortly after graduation, I moved back to the Chicago suburbs and began growing my business. A few years later, and I am extremely grateful for everything I have been able to accomplish. ​

Kat Beatty Photos is one of our favorite photographers to work with! She has a beautiful editing style and is a master of the candid photo. She's professional, kind and easy to work with. We're always excited to hear when our couple book with Kat. Book her and you won't regret it!

Megan Saul Photography 

5.0

Union, IL
  • Photojournalistic style

I resonate with intimate, honest weddings, ones that present as unique and authentic, ones with tradition but they threw that tradition out the door and made their day an authentic representation of their marriage. As an artist, I am able to document weddings while incorporating my own artistic visions and yours. I love natural light, nature, and intimate moments. It is important to me for you to trust me as photography is a collaboration.

There is nothing more anxiety-producing than choosing which photographer to document your event and my partner and I couldn't be happier with Megan. She has a great eye for detail and composition resulting in beautiful, professional, flattering(!), and intimate photos. She's highly conscious that she is creating memories and her photographs reflect her thoughtfulness. She captures the smallest details and interactions while still managing to get the "big picture" too. Megan listens to all concerns -however big or small- while making the process smooth, fun, and as low-stress as possible. She is extremely fair when it comes to price and you receive far more than you are paying for! I highly recommend her services. Photographers are like physicians, they need to be able to put you at ease while being both personable and professional and Megan Saul fits the bill. Our happy event was in early January of 2020. Check her out!

Brittany of Rock 1 Photography gave me a better shoot than I ever imagined! She was able to help pose both my man and I (he HATES photos) and she actually made him have FUN-- actual fun!! Once we were in the groove of the photos, I think that my guy may have enjoyed the photos more than me! It was hard to believe we flew through a few hours of photos in what felt like 15 minutes. Now, let me tell you about outcome: I COULD NOT PICK A FAVORITE! I am so thrilled I have not only great standard shots, but also candid photos to treasure for a lifetime! Brittany was so great about trying my ideas and was extremely helpful in giving us unique ideas. I HIGHLY recommend Brittany, but only if you want to have a fun, laughs, and a surplus of phenomenal pics!

Awarded Best of Zola
2020 was a difficult year for many reasons, but weddings were especially tough to make happen in this calendar year. But what made it even more difficult was having to plan 2 different weddings. The first being a 10 month planned wedding in Joshua Tree, California, until we had to cancel it due to COVID in November a month before it was supposed to happen. My now husband and I scrambled to reset for a smaller ceremony in Illinois instead to allow at least his family to attend and have it at his sister's home in Huntley, IL. We only had one month to reset. One of the most important things for us was photography, and although we had spent most of our savings on the cancelled wedding and we had no hope in recovering most of that back or even soon enough to help with the 2nd wedding, we knew we had to put forth the money and make the right choice for a photographer to document our day as best as possible so that our love ones who couldn't make it could experience that day through the right lens. Justin Vaughn of JVaughn Photography LLC was the right lens and so much more! He worked very closely with us via online google meetings, with a minor setback, which was we couldn't have an in person engagement photo session with him (since we were based in Wyoming and wouldn't arrive in Illinois until closer to the ceremony). Justin prefers to complete an engagement photo session, which comes already included in a lot of his packages, before the wedding to get to know us as a couple and make sure we get the shots we prefer. However even without the engagement session, through our online meetings, we were able to discuss who we are and Justin had that personal touch as though we were talking to an old friend. We established the narrative and story telling that we hoped to have for the day. Justin took detailed notes and had a list of shots to take for the day. But his improvisation and artistic eye was also excellent and he captured moments that we had never thought of that were so beautiful and amazing. In addition to the photography he also did minor videography to provide us a highlight reel, which was beyond what we expected! Throughout the day he was also very much a ninja in capturing the right moments beautifully without obstructing the views of guests present. I would recommend him for any photography need, he truly is an artist that captures the moments you wanted and so much more!

Wadsworth, IL
  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $3,000

I believe you can't stand behind your business unless you can say you fully understand it – and 24 years of marriage is proof that I KNOW LOVE. I set out to capture the essence of love when I started Parker Photography in 2018. I have been married to my best friend for the last 24 years, and people who meet us swear we are newlyweds. We still act like lovestruck teenagers with each other, that same feeling we get from every newly engaged couple that we meet. We know where our couples are coming from and what they hope to capture in their engagement sessions and on their wedding day, and we make it effortless for them to achieve their goals.

Hi! I’m Becka, my husband, Aaron and I are traveling wedding and elopement photographers based in Northern Illinois! We love spending time with people, being outdoors, and we are always down for good conversation!

Awarded Best of Zola
Becka and her team deserve 5/5 stars and all the love for how hard they worked with my husband and I throughout the pandemic.. Let’s go back all the way to the beginning of March 2020.. That’s where I met Becka for the first time.. (She met me in person, which I truly appreciated) right before well, COVID-19.. We were both a little hesitant of what was to come of this virus but it was SO early that neither one of us thought it would effect my wedding that was supposed to take place in the fall of that year.. Boy, were we in for a surprise.. Realizing in the summer that COVID-19 wasn’t going to go anywhere, we rescheduled our wedding for the following year. Unfortunately, Becka was already booked for the only day we could manage to reschedule our venue/church.. However, she saved the day by allowing her assistant photographers, Lauren & Michaela to take over… At first I was a bit nervous knowing Becka wasn’t going to be the one taking the wedding pictures (we loved our engagement photography session) but I trusted her, and I knew her standards were high so she wouldn’t just allow anyone to take the pictures under her name... And let’s just say, my husband and I were not disappointed! The assistant photographers did amazing, it even rained during the most crucial time of the wedding (in terms of photos) …The time after the ceremony! But despite this, the pictures came out absolutely stunning and our family/friends loved them.. All the details, all the unexpected “I didn’t know they captured that!” moments were there… Another thing I want to mention is the way Becka was able to help me schedule parts of the wedding and assist in the planning of when certain things are supposed to happen… As you can imagine, planning a wedding is stressful... Sometimes you don’t even know where to start! Becka helped me tackle this issue and streamline the day so it wouldn’t be as intimidating… With her schedule, I could now put together the pieces of the day and take a breath. Photos & logistics aside, everyone was also so sweet, patient and accommodating… So a big thank you to Becka, Lauren & Michaela for capturing our big day wonderfully. We will cherish these photos for a lifetime!

She knew how to make us laugh, it never got awkward, and the pictures turned out phenomenal! Next step was helping to outline the day of our wedding with pictures. She was really helpful in guiding our timeline of photos and making sure we were including all the photos we want. Helped with my stress levels. Then it was finally wedding day! Nichole is a rockstar!! My bridesmaids were even raving about her the next day! She knows how to make a bride feel less stressed on her wedding day! Nichole got all the photos we wanted and more.

I highly recommend this company to take photos at your wedding! We loved our photographer Percy. He was incredible, and so helpful. He came with several cameras and valued all of our ideas, and when we became stumped he offered ideas for us to try as well. He was very professional, kind, caring, and always on top of the game taking photos. Towards the end of our night he started to put the camera away and brought it back out to catch a few final moments. He was on top of responding to all questions before, during, and after. He took photos of me and my husband before the ceremony and got some wonderful shots (it was a 95 outside wedding so this was much appreciated because we all had some sweat on our faces). But before we got Percy and our booking process with eivans it was super simple, and just an overall great experience.

More than a decade ago, two sisters - knew there had to be a better way to allow talented photographers and videographers to focus on what they do best -- create gorgeous art -- while providing couples with better support in the planning process. Together, they created an all-inclusive, stress-free environment where couples can choose from talented local photographers and videographers and work with a small team of planning experts equipped and eager to make everything a success. With the pressure gone, you can truly enjoy your big day. Relax and rest assured that all the emotional and moments will be documented with unmatched quality.

Our experience with OLAS was amazing from start to finish! Although we didn't work directly with the photographer until the day of the wedding (except for a zoom call where we got to meet her and talk about our vision), everyone on the team was super helpful and willing to answer any questions we had. I told Hannah (Event Planner for OLAS) over the phone that I thought they were some huge, conglomerate business because all of their emails and outreach seemed so put together and professional, so I was so surprised to hear that it was really just a small team of kick-a** women that are behind all of this. I love supporting female-owned and run businesses, and this truly seems to be one of the best. I wouldn't be surprised if they expanded a ton in the near future, so I am glad we got in when it was such a small and intimate team. You can tell they love what they do and really want to make your day special! Our photographer was also amazing on the wedding day, and even though we hadn't interacted with her too much before, she made us feel super comfortable the entire day and really seemed to love working for OLAS, which was great to see!

My name is Elliot Stokes and I am a photographer located in the Madison, WI area, but I work all across Wisconsin and Illinois. I have been drawn to the camera since I was young, but becoming a father has really shown me the magic behind capturing the most candid and beautiful moments of our lives. I started my journey into professional photography officially in the summer of 2019 and received my Bachelors of Fine Arts degree with honors in Digital Photography in the spring of 2022. I absolutely love what I do and look forward to every new experience and opportunity this journey takes me on!

Elliot, our photographer for our wedding, was incredible to work with, fast and took amazing photos for us to remember our special day. We did not have much of a “plan” so his help was instrumental in organizing and initiating photo opportunities. We would %100 recommend him to anyone needing a photographer for an event. He has a drone that he uses to take stunning cinematic quality video

You are probably assuming my about me section will have a story about how I always wanted to be a photographer, I came out of the womb holding a camera, but that couldn’t be me. I stumbled into it, literally. I had no plans to become a wedding photographer. I was either going to follow my dad’s path and go to dental school, or become a social worker. But a freshman in college decided to shoot a few photos for fun, and now over eight years and almost 200 weddings later, I could not imagine myself doing anything else. This is my dream job!

Beyond her immense talent she is one of the sincere, kind, funny (the list goes one) that we’ve ever met. She blended into our special night, because she became a fast friend. Our guests raved about her presence as well as her work. Kevin also joined in and shot many of my intimate shots. Everything I can say for Mariah goes for Kevin—he is FANTASTIC.

Hello there! I'm Andrea, owner of Amative Creative, and every weekend we're so blessed to be able to tell the love stories of so many amazing couples. Like many others in this industry might say, we simply adore weddings. But what makes us a little different is our entire brand is centered around telling love stories specifically curated to reflect your vision and aesthetic. "Amative" means to be prone to love, so as you can see, we want nothing more than to tell your love story! But what makes us truly unique is that we understand every love story looks different. And we personalize every aspect of how we document your wedding day!

Awarded Best of Zola
It gives me no pleasure giving Andrea a less than perfect review, because her pictures are indeed gorgeous and she is a very talented editor and artist, and I do love my photos. With that, there were some things during the process I wish were more transparent and I thought others should be informed. She does not honor her contract at all/it needs to be updated. My signed contract stated I’d receive min 3 previews within 3 days of my wedding. I waited a full week until contacting her; she stated that the contract was “old” and didn’t account for editing…again so update it. OR at the very least admit and let me know you will not be meeting the terms of the agreement and tell me when I can expect them (she didn’t). I had no reason to believe I wouldn’t get previews for over 2 weeks and it was incredibly disappointing/frustrating. Additionally, the photos she chose to include were not what I’d hoped, I had several pictures of my dj but zero of my family…like why? Additionally, 3 days before my wedding she texted me asking if it was okay for her to send someone else to do my wedding. Now, I am understanding of illness and family issues but if you really needed to sub my wedding, call me and and explain. But to put the decision on a CLIENT and ask if they are okay with you not coming as expected put me in a tough position, not to mention a stress I didn’t need before my wedding. The contract also stated I’d get the full gallery by the one month mark, and after I didn’t get the previews until almost then, I knew that timeline was laughable. I was provided no communication as to when I might expect them just that she was “unusually” busy (clearly overbooked, admitting 5 weddings a weekend, etc) Or, you can stalk her IG stories for her queue but that just shows you where you are in line, not when you can expect anything. Eventually I received my photos 16weeks after my wedding. While they were absolutely stunning, I was still a little upset about little details ignored (leaving scratches when I specifically asked to have them concealed out) or photos that were only provided in black and white, when I wanted color or the option for both. I’ll wrap up by saying yes her photos are amazing but go in aware deadlines won’t be met or communicated and you’re not guaranteed to actually have Andrea herself (I’m sure her whole team is amazing, shout out to Jo!) it’s clear anyone on her team is interchangeable. If you’re not bothered by any of that she’s amazing!

Hi, I’m Isaac. In my world, light is everything. The cool ambient hues at dawn, hinting at what the day may bring. Golden sun rays catching particles through a tree as friends gathers to celebrate. A Cotton candy sunset peppered by patio string-lights as a DJ plays my favorite song. We all have timeless memories logged in our minds. For me, they are based in a language of light. As a wedding photographer, this deep connection to special lighting helps me produce dynamic visual stories of romance, personality and beauty.

We loved Isaac and his wife, Jing, who photographed our wedding earlier this month. Isaac was super calm and collected and on top of everything. His photography style was perfect for us. He already delivered about half of our retouched photos a week after the wedding which was insane and I love every single one. He was flexible with the 5 flower girls we had in and out of pictures and the multiple areas on our venue property. Overall an amazing experience and I recommend his work to anyone and everyone looking.

Awarded Best of Zola
Choosing Kirsten with Kirst photography was by far the easiest and best decision we made for our wedding. From the beginning of our process through our wedding day, she provided us with detailed information regarding our investment, and referred to us for how we wanted her to capture our day, and boy did she deliver! Her pricing was well explained and more than fair, and even in the early stages of planning we started working up detailed lists of people, poses, and styles we wanted to ensure were captured. I felt that she understood my vision truly from the first time we met. She was timely, organized, and upbeat, (something I really appreciated when nerves were high on our big day!) Our entire wedding party loved her, and truly had fun with the photos; including my normally photo-adverse husband. We had her running around photographing our outdoor ceremony, then onto a trolley to a forest preserve for bridal party photos in the woods, and finally back to our indoor reception. In all of these areas there were different colors, lighting, wind, etc. - none was an issue for Kirsten. She photographed every setting beautifully, and captured all of our most special moments. She has a natural gift of capturing fleeting moments, and my husband and I were blown away by the magical nature of the photos she delivered to us. Photos were emailed soon after our return from our honeymoon, perfect timing to reminisce and share with family and friends. I would urge you, choose Kirst for your photography needs- you will not regret it. You deserve someone who cares just as deeply about your big event as you do! Kirsten’s work and care are absolutely top notch. She will be our go-to family photographer from now on!

What started out as a hobby, evolved into a great passion. With a camera on hand for every event, I spent my lunch money as a young kid developing films at the photo store. I became so fond of capturing as many organic moments as I can in photographs and fell in love with the idea of telling people's stories in images rather than words. I started venturing into professional photography right after my own wedding to my high school sweetheart, Erick, which was back in 2014. I LOVE everything wedding-related. My favorite to photographs are the wedding details, the bride and groom portraits and anything that will make me either cry or laugh!

So there’s no “I” in team right?! While Captured Couture is the product of years of hard work that I built from the ground up. I have an amazing team because sometimes takes more than just me. For larger events or on occasions when I am already booked one of my team members will gladly assist with your event. We’ve covered hundreds of weddings together, and have refined our editing style and way of shooting to be completely consistent. You won’t be able to tell the difference. Pinky promise! No matter where you’re planning from when it clicks, it clicks.

My (now) husband and I chose to hire Jennifer from Captured Couture as our photographer for our wedding. We were both blown away by her images posted on her website and Instagram page and after having a phone interview we were convinced she was the one for us. Jennifer was communicative and so easy to work with. We were able to get a free engagement session with the purchase of our package which was awesome because we were able to meet her in person before our actual wedding. The day of the wedding there were a few minor hiccups as our wedding was the same day as the Detroit Pride fest, and we weren’t sure some of our desired locations would be accessible. Without a moment of hesitation Jennifer, who knows the city of Detroit incredibly well, was able to secure a location for our first look and our wedding party photos which turned out to be perfect. Jennifer and her assistant LeAnn captured every part of our wedding with some much care and attention to detail. Our photos are spectacular and we are so thankful for our photography team. Both my husband and I would definitely recommend Captured Couture to anyone looking for wedding photography.

Anders hopped on board to shoot our elopement just a couple days before the event. In the short time leading up we had a quick intro call to say hello, chat expectations, and plan for the shoot. During the ceremony he managed to get shots of our rings and other key moments without distraction - was genuinely surprised looking at the gallery to see what he'd been able to capture without us even realizing on the day! Throughout the shoot he worked with us to capture he sweet moments and the silly ones -- the most fun I've had getting my picture taken. Friends and family who have seen the photos since have nothing but rave reviews, and so do we. An appreciated bonus - print ordering and gallery are well organized and easy to navigate. 12/10 would absolutely work with Anders again.

She was very flexible with timing when scheduling meetings and very accommodating with our vision! Her work is such a great quality, and has an incredible personality where it is very easy to talk to her! I was able to voice some of my worries with certain family members, and she was fully prepared to take on the day when she arrived for our big day!! We love Jessica so much and cannot recommend her enough!!

I work to craft images about connection - photographs that have warmth & tell a story about the love you share as a couple or as a family. I believe your wedding photos should stand the test of time. You want to feel completely confident that your story is going to be captured in a way that is beautiful and true to who you are as a couple. Not only that but we should probably have some fun along the way! I feel so honored to play a small part in your best day ever. I am here to help you enjoy this season of your life and have you feel well taken care of from day one.

Hire Kate as your wedding photographer!! Kate was one of our absolute favorite vendors from our wedding and the day truly wouldn't have been the same or gone they way it did without her. From the initial meeting, to the check-ins, and the day-of, Kate was so kind and so professional. We had Kate photograph our welcome event the day before our wedding and it was a great way to get us and our guests comfortable before our big day. On the day of the wedding, we got so many compliments about Kate from the wedding party and our families. She made sure everyone knew where they needed to be, how to pose, and was so efficient with family photos before our ceremony. After the wedding, we received SO many sneak peeks within a week of the wedding and it was so fun getting to relive the day through her beautiful photography. If you're wondering if Kate is the right choice, just do it, you won't be disappointed! Thank you Kate for capturing our day and making everything so special.

Maurice did an exceptional job capturing the moments that really mattered to us at our wedding, just as we had wanted. He also made the best of a few different random setting scenarios, i.e., shooting in a hotel room that was crowded and shooting in a women's restroom of a boat!!!

I am a luxury destination photographer based in Michigan, Florida & Colorado! I am ALL over Michigan and all over the nation! I have a home in Lansing and Holland and I travel all over Michigan capturing my clients from Lansing to Grand Rapids to the west coast of Lake Michigan to northern Michigan, Mackinac Island and Traverse City to areas of Detroit! I also have condo access in Clearwater, FL and Breckenridge, CO. This allows me to be local to multiple places and states! This career is so much more than just showing up and taking photos. It's emotion, it's detail, it's getting to know my clients and capturing each of them uniquely.

Dani not only helped us find our elopement spot in Colorado but she was so helpful in structuring our plans. We had our air bnb for a week and she had flowers and photos placed in there to make us feel at home. It was so sweet. She had a changing tent for me to change into after we hiked to our elopement spot. After we were married we ran around the mountains taking photos and we felt so happy and comfortable! The icing on the cake, the photos turned out AMAZING!!!! She is stuck with us forever as our photographer! Hire her!!!

Bright and colorful wedding photographer based in Chicago and Seattle but available to capture the nostalgia of your wedding day no matter where you live. I'm passionate about your story, personality, and vision.

Our wedding photos turned out better than I could have imagined and Laura did such an incredible job of capturing our special day. My partner does not enjoy getting his picture taken and Laura put him at ease so quickly. The fact that he actually enjoyed both taking photos during our engagement session and on our wedding day says a lot about Laura’s calming spirit. Everyone thinks their own wedding was the best day ever, and I'm no different. Laura was a huge reason for that and I'll cherish our photos forever.

Hey, Im Grant. I'm a Madison, WI based wedding photographer who specializes in a documentary approach using both film and digital photography. If you want your wedding gallery to be uniquely yours (vs a Pinterest shotlist), then I'm your guy.

WE LOVE GRANT. I can’t say it enough. I’ve been antsy for more of my friends and family to get engaged just so I can recommend Grant be their wedding photographer. We started with an engagement session with Grant, which felt just like a hang out (and that is EXACTLY what we wanted). We were dreading the engagement session, since this was our first time getting professional pictures taken, and we normally feel very awkward in front of a camera. Grant made it so easy and comfortable by playing music, joking around, asking questions, and prompting us to do certain things, so we never felt lost or posed. It also helped that Grant is hilarious- we were never told to “turn and face each other and pretend to laugh,” since we were basically naturally laughing the whole time already. For our wedding day, we hired Grant to shoot only with film, and boy did he deliver. There’s a sense of rawness and nostalgia to his film pictures, making them absolutely timeless. Each time I look through our gallery, I discover and love something new about each picture. He captured moments I didn’t even know that I wanted, but are now my favorite shots from that day. The day of your wedding, there are so many things going through your mind, so many questions being asked of you, and so many things you end up forgetting. Grant’s playful, yet confident energy constantly put me at ease. He knew when a joke was needed, when hair needed fixing, how to steam dresses (yes, he actually did that), how to deal with children, where to go and what to do at any moment, and when we just needed a break. To top it all off, Grant surprised me and my husband at the end of the night with a whole set of Polaroids he took of every big moment throughout the whole day (so thoughtful and special!!). I now have them all in a frame, illustrating our wedding so perfectly. It is VERY clear Grant is in this business because he loves it and is passionate about what he does. I was never hesitant to tell him my [particular/annoying] requests or opinions, because he was always open to hearing them and excited to take on a new challenge. I honestly wish I could just take Grant and his camera with me everywhere I go to capture all the big moments in my life. I will cherish our pictures forever, as well as our new friendship with him!

I like to take a journalistic approach to my wedding photography, letting the day flow naturally, all while capturing every wonderful moment for the couple as non-obtrusive as possible. My goal is to make your big day as stress free & fun as possible while capturing memories to last a life time!

We absolutely LOVED working with Andrew! He made our wedding day run so smoothly and stress free. From being so attentive to me while getting ready for the big day to making us feel so relaxed in all of our photos - I can’t imagine our wedding day without him. I highly recommend Merz Photography for engagement photos and wedding photos. I never doubted his creative vision and will always cherish our photos from the most special day in our lives.
