Cannot recommend simplyzoom photography enough! She has been so easy to work with and communicate with. We had our engagement pictures and wedding photos done. I was worried about my husband not being super comfortable with taking pictures but Ardita always made him feel good. We’re now expecting our first baby and she’ll be doing our newborn photos!

Your wedding means much more to us then taking pictures, we're all in on your marriage. When you say “I do” it’s your first act of commitment to each other. Every part of your day is surrounded by those you love and acts in support of marriage. Marriage is much more than butterflies, it’s intentionality. Intentionally fun, intentionally beautiful, intentionally choosing each other through the good times and the bad times. I want to capture your love that you will continue to choose over and over, and the pictures are the greatest piece that you’ll revisit over and over to bring you back to all the emotions of your day!

Trisha did a fantastic job with both our engagement and wedding photos! She is kindhearted and she spends time getting to know her couples. When we had cut our wedding back to immediate family only due to COVID-19, Trisha arranged for our small group from church to surprise us at the park for pictures after our ceremony. Trisha’s surprise made our day even more special!

  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $2,800

It’s not unusual to find me spending hours editing and creating after a photoshoot. I have the rare opportunity in life to do what I love and create images that people will cherish for generations to come! Photojournalism and documentary wedding photography is my favorite style and the majority of images I capture fall into this category. A good wedding photographer will anticipate the important moments of the day and capture them as they happen, instead of staging and directing the day's events.

Laurel Tree Photography
Moline, IL
  • Classic style
  • Starts at $3,000

My passion for photography and weddings began when I was very young. I staged Barbie weddings, making their dresses from Kleenex, then snuck Mom’s camera to take pictures of them. I moved on to dressing up my little sister in a pillowcase veil, again sneaking Mom’s camera. When she got tired of me using up all her film, she brought home several Bride magazines from the free pile at the library and I spent hours reading them, then pinning pages of beautiful wedding dresses on the ceiling of my bedroom. When “The Wedding Planner” came out in 2001, my fate was sealed

I live for capturing the magic moments of your wedding day-- from the first look to the first dance, and all the laughter and tears in between. When the guests are gone and the gifts are opened, these images will be one of the last things left to remember your wedding day. Who do you trust to capture these memories? These precious little moments of love are what fuel my purpose to document the special moments and bonds shared between others.

My favorite part about being a photographer is capturing all the memories! watching a family grow throughout sessions, seeing a groom cry happy tears, and watching your little one smash their birthday cake!

Isaac was great during our engagement shoot! We were very nervous about the shoot but he made us feel totally comfortable. He took photos in a variety of poses, backdrops, etc and showed us the photos along the way to see what we liked and didn't like. We both feel much better going into the wedding now!

Ashley is one of the most caring photographers I’ve ever had. She really went above and beyond even before I booked her. She sent out a timeline of how my session was going to go and even send me suggestions of what to wear. Then came the session, she made me really comfortable in my own skin and made me giggle so much with her awesome humor. I was really worried about how I would look, but when I saw the photos I was so happy I almost cried! She got all my best angles and captured my true personality in those photos!! If you want someone that goes above and beyond, takes care of your needs, and is FUN to work with and captures your best angles, SHE IS THE ONE!!!

I shifted from corporate shootings to families and weddings because it gave me this warm fuzzy feeling when I edited my couples and families photos.

From the very beginning of planning my surprise proposal to my girlfriend, working with Grace was an absolute pleasure. She was not only receptive to my ideas but also shared her own equally creative suggestions. Grace's professionalism and attention to detail were outstanding. What truly made the experience special was how she made the entire photoshoot feel like a fun activity for us as a couple. Her creativity shone through as she guided us through various poses that felt incredibly natural. Grace's ability to put us at ease made the entire experience enjoyable and stress-free. One more remarkable detail was her dedication to research, ensuring we had perfect sunrise photos. It was evident that she went the extra mile to time everything perfectly. What stood out the most, though, was her unique talent for capturing the emotion and joy of the moment. I can't thank her enough for creating such a magical and unforgettable memory for us!

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.

Awarded Best of Zola
When we started planning our wedding I knew that I wanted to work with Isaac. I had been following his work on Instagram for a few years after my friend got married and I always love the energy and emotion he can capture in his photography. The photos are bright and colorful and feel very natural. After meeting Isaac, he is one of the nicest people and it was a real pleasure to have him at our wedding. And the photos turned out just as I had hoped. There are lots of great family shots, the details of the bridal party getting ready, setup and all of our guests enjoying the reception are really fun. And the sunset photos have a magic quality to them. I definitely got so many photos its difficult to decide which ones to print and frame for the wall.

Chelcie and her team were hands down the best vendor we hired for our wedding. Chelcie is a true professional. Her calm demeanor made the day feel effortless for me and that I was in good hands no matter what was going on around me. I will never forget her personally scrubbing the mud off of the bottom of my dress before I walked down the aisle, knowing exactly what to do and calmly telling me it was going to be perfect. In addition to the amazing service we received the day of the wedding, Chelcie’s photography style, editing, and eye for detail make her a really special photographer. The preview of our pictures are absolutely beautiful and captured the immense love between me, my husband, and our families. I cannot wait to see the rest! I could not recommend Chelcie more.

I booked Sarah for our intimate wedding in April, and I couldn't be happier with the results. My husband is a photographer, so he was very picky about wanting a photographer who would capture the natural beauty of our unconventional wedding in our favorite restaurant. Looking through Sarah's work, we really loved how her work didn't look staged or overly edited. When we got back our photo proofs, we were even more blown away. During our pre-dinner photoshoot, we have so many stunning photos of us in our favorite Chicago neighborhood, both in places we wanted and in cute little alleys and doorways that she found day-of. And then during dinner, despite pretty cramped quarters, we have photos of all of our 40 guests enjoying the evening. We will treasure Sarah's work for years to come!

J is truly incredible to work with! He immediately made me feel comfortable and wasn’t “pushy” when I was deciding on photographers. We picked him because 1.) his photography is seriously amazing, and 2.) he is a genuinely wonderful guy, and I knew he would put me at ease throughout the day. His rates are also very reasonable and there are no “hidden” fees. I really liked that he was with us the ENTIRE day too! We just got our wedding photos back (SUPER FAST TURNAROUND) and I am completely in love! I don’t even have the words to describe how incredible they are. He captured so many moments that I didn’t even know happened, and now we have hundreds of photos of people laughing and crying throughout the day that I wouldn’t have ever seen if he wasn’t there! We wanted someone that was artistic and didn’t just take the “stereotypical” wedding photos, and he exceeded our expectations. He was very responsive throughout the entire process and took the time to thoroughly answer every single question I had. He was even helpful during the wedding day with things not entirely photographer related, like helping me find something I lost at one point and exuding a “chill” vibe that definitely calmed everyone down! My entire family adored him, and we are already thinking of new events in life that we will hire J for! I am SO thankful he was with us for our engagement photos and wedding day, and I cannot recommend him enough!

He has an eye for things that most people wouldn't have seen. I've had the pleasure of getting to work with him several times now and he's so kind and has such a calming presence which is exactly what you want from your wedding photographer/videographer! I'm currently helping my sister plan her wedding and when she got engaged he was the first vendor I sent to her to look at. She was blown away, as I knew she would be, by his work and loved how his wedding videos felt so natural, candid, and also didn't look like every other wedding video. His ability to tell a story both in photograph and video is remarkable. As a wedding photographer, if I had to redo my wedding day, I would without a doubt have Steve there to capture it.

Nelena and Dom took photos at my rustic/modern wedding at cider mill in Princeton, Illinois. Once the four of us met, my husband and I loved how easy it was to speak to Nelena and Dom and how they immediately understood where we were coming from. As introverts we wanted a photographer with a larger-than-life personality, someone who would find candid moments on our day and Andreoni Photography really brought the fun. I can’t stress enough how truly wonderful our experience was. The two of them worked so well together. They brought so much excitement and fun when capturing photos of our wedding party. Nelena and Dom were always so responsive to my many questions and concerns I had. I could expect a response from either of them within 24 hours and usually much quicker than that. The first time my now-husband and I saw the photos, we melted! We had a date night and snuggled up on the couch, and loaded the photos onto our big screen. It truly felt like we were back on our special day. We loved the unique poses and fun and intimate moments Andreoni photography captured. I had no idea our small town wedding could look so incredibly beautiful. The finished photos ooze class, sophistication and refinement.

I was introduced to the world of photography the same week I was introduced to the world. All thanks to my Dad, who was never without his camera. Because of him, our memories growing up are preserved. Then I got my first camera when I was about 6. I documented everything. Since then, my memories, large and small, are organized on my computer, by year. So I can go back & revisit so many wonderful memories from my life...most which I wouldn't even remember without pictures. I enjoy life, and that’s why people call me the “happiest photographer.”

We gotta give a huge shoutout to Daria for being the coolest wedding photographer ever! Our Brooklyn bash was all modern and sleek, and she totally got what we wanted. From day one, she vibed with us and on the big day, it was like she was part of the crew. Daria's got this ninja-like skill of snapping the best shots without us even noticing. Seriously, she's got an eye for catching those real feels and little deets that made our day pop. The pics? OMG, they're not just photos, they're like time machines.

Hey future newlyweds! I'm Jarrod, a wedding photographer that specializes in story telling. Tired of all the bright, overposed, cookie cutter sh*t you keep seeing? Let's create wedding images with real emotion, story, and intention to them. I know being in front of the camera can be awkward. That's why I choose not to pose couples, but instead prompt you to do something like "take off your shoes and run across the field" or " get inside the car and kiss everywhere except the lips". These prompts will help you feel comfortable and also help create candid images. Check out my website for more info :)

Jarrod did an amazing job on our wedding day! We were so very grateful to have him there with us. He was absolutely amazing and did a great job collaborating with our other vendors and coordinating logistics and timing of what we wanted to have done. We were so happy that we got videography done for our big day- feels like we’re reliving it each time we watch it! Highly recommend and very worth it!!!

She was communicative and responsive, and her shots were absolutely gorgeous. She managed to capture every single important moment of our celebration and the way she guides and corrals everyone into taking pictures that look good is nothing short of a miracle (trust me, I feel so awkward in front of the camera and I look incredible in all of my wedding shots.)

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!

Hi, I'm Samuel! Chicago based wedding and elopement photographer here to give couples a truly relaxed and down to earth experience. Being photographed shouldn't be uncomfortable or boring!  Telling love stories through photos brings me immense joy. 

We were so grateful to Samuel who was able to document our city hall ceremony on a very last minute request during the end of year holidays. (Are you free next weekend?) We were drawn to the documentary style of his work and thought it was a fitting way to remember a special moment in a basement of Chicago's City Hall. Leading up to the day, we texted and chatted about places to do portraits after and Samuel was very patient and helpful in suggesting places that felt right for me and my partner. Not only did he have the inside scoop on what the city hall ceremony was going to be like and what was going to happen, but he was also great to hang out with in line and and get to know better. We both felt very comfortable working with Samuel and the nerves of working with a professional photographer for the first time went out the window. I can only imagine how amazing the experience would be to work with Samuel with more time to prepare or at locations a little less drab than a city hall basement!

I’m Haverlee, (hay-verlee), solo parent of three wild things. My photography career was birthed from many years of pain. My life derailed and everything felt unstable and uncertain. The more difficult things became, the more I clung to small moments of beauty. When things felt dark, I clung to the light. And I could always find light in people and in nature. Focusing on others instead of my own dark days brought me joy every time without fail. I always knew I was creative but it took me a while to find my niche! As I ventured into photography, everything fell into place. It was as if I already knew the language, I just had to find the words.

I’ll try to keep this short: I’m a silly, introverted, rule breaker with a sincere whimsical streak. Originally from Iowa with a decent chunk of time spent bopping between Minneapolis and Oregon, I love weddings + photography (duh), my nephew, a stiff gin + tonic, propagating too many damn houseplants, and my cats. Last I checked I’m an INFP, Enneagram 4, and Capricorn which makes me quite the pragmatic daydreamer + observer: as unnecessarily prepared as a Boy Scout, curiously creative, and hella laid back, all of which uniquely prepares me for the ebb and flow of a wedding day.

Caitlin is a dream. From the time she arrived to the beginning moments of our wedding, Caitlin right away was comfortable with everyone. She brings an ease which allows people be calm and we honestly forgot she was there, snapping away. There were many moments where she would check in and make sure everyone was good, the energy was so sweet. We received our photos right when she said they would be done. The work Caitlin does captures the warmth, and light of a love event. My husband cried the first, second and third time we looked though the collection. We will treasure them forever. Highly, highly recommend her! 100%

This review is massively long overdue (we got married 5/20/2022), but I absolutely have to write one. Maria and Ricky are hands down the BEST people and we could not have been luckier to have the pleasure of them capturing our wedding! They got exactly the vibes we wanted, all the shots we wanted, were so easy to communicate with, and are just the nicest and most fun people! We did our engagement shoot with them in NYC and the photos could not have been any better. We communicated the types of shots we were looking for and, since they were living there, they were able to give us the best tips for location and shots! Our wedding was better than we could have ever imagined. We got the best posed shots and the absolute best candid shots. We barely even realized the were photographing/taking video of us during the reception which we loved, but we also just loved their presence. They were so much fun and added to the party, they were dancing while shooting and made everyone so happy and comfortable. Our guests still talk about them and how awesome they are! Our video is breathtaking, we are taken back to the day every time we watching and it always brings us to tears. The photos are incredible; we constantly look through our photos and love displaying them in our home to look at all the time. We have since referred several people to them because we would love everyone to have the same experience we had!

When you elope in the middle of a pandemic, it matters all the more that you love your photographer--since they'll be the only other person at your wedding. :) And in short, we couldn't be happier that ours was Shawnee. She has such a gift and a love for the work she does—and it shows. We knew she was the right person from the moment we met on Zoom--she is warm and kind, asked all the right questions, and instantly put us at ease. My partner and I eloped at the end of October 2020 in DC, just before the election. It was a whirlwind moment for so many reasons, especially as a queer couple. And it mattered to us that the person who captured those treasured memories, really understood what that moment meant to us. Everyone who sees our photos marvels at how wonderful they are—and no doubt we look great, but Shawnee’s warmth and direction and stellar eye really made all the difference. Vibing with your photographer matters—we’re so grateful to have found one with such grace and as much love for her art as Shawnee. <3

I have been shooting professionally for nearly ten years throughout Indiana--though I am very eager to travel with my camera! I bring a creative, moody vibe to my photographs that aim to tell your story in it's own unique beauty. I love helping tell & creating stories, and have held various day jobs from newspaper reporter to behavioral therapist. I know that my job touches almost as heavily in service as it does in the arts, and utilize all of my qualities to work with all of your vendors so that YOU have the best day possible!

Kelly is a dream photographer for a planner like me. After meeting at a bridal show, she approached me to help her get a styled shoot idea she had for years executed and it was such a dream and honor to be asked. Kelly is very easy to communicate with while knowing just when to (kindly and graciously) take charge and run the show to let her work shine through. She presented her ideas clearly with flexibility to let my style and touch shine through. I am positive she would be any couples dream to work with on their big day. Cannot recommend her enough!!

Unapologetically authentic, storytelling wedding photography. Of course we'll capture the traditional photos for grandma's wall...but after that I'll bring the ART that is YOUR LOVE STORY to LIFE. I'm based out of Manitowoc, WI and adore the thrill of traveling. You choose the location and I'll bring the magic.

When we first found Kasey while searching for a wedding photographer I fell in love with her style. Just the tone of her pictures.. I just knew she was the one we needed. After contacting Kasey I was so impressed, she is so easy to get along with and so professional at the same time. Not only did she make our engagement shoot amazing especially being such a meaningful place where we took them, she made our wedding day perfect! We couldn’t have asked for a better person to share our special day with. Now I have so many memories captured I can hardly choose my favorites there’s so many, there’s not a single picture I don’t love! Kasey is just an amazing photographer and person, she comes highly recommended from us!

Weddings are definitely close to my heart! My goal is to produce images that you can look back on for the rest of your lives and feel good vibes only! I want this day to be as stress free as possible for you on my end -- so if I need to be a wedding coordinator, dress fluffer, hair fixer, dance partner, people wrangler, or whatever it may be on top of being your photographer, I GOTCU!

Tiffany is so talented. Her work is amazing and she is easy and fun to work with!

Hello hello! My name is Marie and I am the owner and photographer for Wild Elegance. We are a brand for adventurers, for lovers of life, and genuine people who love those little moments between the moments in life and seek out truth over perfection. Your marriage is unique because of the relationships you have with the people you choose to celebrate with. Spending my day with you and your closest family and friends brings me such joy, and creating art out of some of the best moments of your life is something I am truly honored to be a part of for so many.

Knowing how much of a financial investment a wedding photographer was going to be, I did not take my decision lightly. I reached out to several companies and had several questions when determining who would be the right fit. And I have to say, Marie was by far the most understanding and compassionate during that process. While many photographers seemed annoyed by the (many) questions I would ask before booking, Marie was patient and very thoughtful with her responses -- she even took time to arrange a phone call with me while traveling! And during that phone call, she made sure I didn't feel rushed and that she answered all questions I had fully, it truly felt like I was talking to a friend. That was when I made the decision to book with Marie. Beyond that, when booking the session for our Engagement photos, she brought several creative and adventurous ideas to the table and had the PERFECT locations to take us to. We had a blast together. I would recommend Marie to anyone looking for a photographer who is friendly, compassionate, accommodating and just a joy to be around.

Such a delight to work with Saumya! We did a fall couple photoshoot. Due to the covid-19 pandemic, other than a quick photoshoot during our wedding, we hadn't done photos as a couple before. My partner is camera-shy and she made sure we both felt comfortable to be ourselves during the shoot. She is very attentive to your vision for the shoot, and creates a warm environment where the shoot feels like fun. Our pictures turned out great!

At the end of the day, all we have are the stories told about us and the ones we write about ourselves. I love writing about the musings of life and sharing my thoughts with others in conversation and social media posts. I constantly document my own life so I don't forget the big or little moments. Every time I travel to somewhere new I love connecting with those who cross my path, and yet I equally love coming home to my dog. TLDR: sentimental soul, avid movie goer, mental health advocate, and decent chocolate chip cookie maker.

where do i even begin? we were so blessed to have Rachael with us on our special day. we hired Carissa for our wedding photography & chose to have her bring an extra shooter with & BOOM! we somehow got blessed with Rachael as our bonus. i could go on about everything from her amazing personality, the positivity & happiness absolutely exuding from her at all times, her killer taste in music, the sheer talent that is her photography skills (both behind the camera & assisting in posing with such ease), to the way she somehow makes it feel like an old friend is with you every step of your wedding day (even if it’s the first day you met her), wrapping you in her beautiful scarf to keep you warm between photos & the ceremony because you were shivering, & is even willing to join your friends and family on the dance floor amidst capturing the most amazing memories for you. never did i feel rushed, if anything she helped me keep my cool about my timeline & helped ease so much of my anxiety about it. okay, i know what you’re thinking, “amy this seems like an excessive rant for a wedding photographer.” BUT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND!! our photography was one part of our wedding we were willing to splurge on, & if i hadn’t decided we absolutely needed a second photographer for the day then i would have never been absolutely blessed with Rachael. not only did she capture so many of our posed moments, but more importantly the candid moments that i was too busy spinning around like a maniac to notice & are now some of my favorite pictures. our photographers are one part of our day that i will FOREVER absolutely rave about to everyone & always recommend to future brides because i want them to be able to experience the same beautiful souls & genuinely perfect encounter i got that day. Rachael is the kind of person you want to reach out to when you’re thinking about future photoshoots, & who makes you want to do photoshoots just for an excuse to get to experience both her presence & her absolute talent again. if you were debating hiring Rachael, PLEASE don’t second guess it. you will NOT be disappointed. (did i mention the photos she delivered are simply out of this freakin’ world?! because OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS!)

I can't recommend Justine enough, from her professionalism, to her artistry she is a dream to work with. As a photographer myself, I am nervous, awkward, and admittedly particular about having photos of myself taken. With Justine at the help myself, my partner and all of our guests were at ease and the images she captured fully represent the vibrant and loving nature of our ceremony and celebration. Thank you Justine for being exactly who you are and doing what you do so beautifully. You have captured for us moments we will cherish forever.

Hi, I’m Teri! I’m a Chicago based Wedding Photographer. I approach my photography as an artistic craft. I strive to create images that are emotional and striking. My life’s work is photographing people’s most joyous moments—preserving feelings and details that may otherwise be lost. I am obsessed with creating playful compositions, capturing fleeting moments that make the most treasured memories come alive again. The couples I work with place immense trust in me and it is my honor to create art for them.

Teri was amazing, she got amazing posed and candid photos of our day and the turn around time for our pictures was very quick! She was as even able to work with the poor weather we had to get beautiful fog filled pictures and take advantage of the blue cast at sunset! Would highly recommend her to any and everyone!
