teri b photography

5.0

Springfield, IL
  • Fine art style
  • Starts at $4,000
  • Serves Arlington Heights, IL

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!

Jana Blue Photography (Photo + Film)

5.0

Wheaton, IL
  • Classic style
  • Starts at $2,800
  • Serves Arlington Heights, 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.

Awarded Best of Zola
It was truly an honor having Jana and her team capture every part of our special day. She exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond with delivering the most stunning and breath taking photos. From the very start, Jana took the time to get to know us as a couple and was with us every step of our planning journey. Even with a family emergency, Jana went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and she delivered an unforgettable experience I will forever cherish. Jana herself radiates so much light, joy, creativity, and passion, and her presence alone made everyone around feel all the good vibes. Jana will work with you and will give you so many great options. Her packages are perfectly curated and she will deliver. Anyone who gets to work with her and her team are incredibly lucky!

Roman Lorek Photography

Oak Lawn, IL
  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $2,000

I am a bilingual (Polish, English) Chicago based wedding photographer who enjoys traveling and music. I like to take a documentary approach to photography. Keeping posing to a minimum and capturing natural moments of your big day. I am a perfect photographer for a couple that believes the natural moments mean more than posed photographs.

I had the privilege of working with Roman at a wedding a few years ago. I was hired as a DJ and he reached out to me prior to the event to introduce himself. I looked into his work and was astounded by his attention to detail. He really has a knack for capturing the moment in photo

Kate Scott Photography

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

My name is Kate Scott Daly, and I can't wait to meet you! I'm a Chicago native and have been a professional photographer for nearly a decade. I am obsessed with capturing the perfect moment that will make you gasp and say "Oh my god, this is amazing!" Being a queer woman, it is so important to me that you feel safe, loved, and beautiful every step of the way. If you're looking for someone you can relax with and just be yourself, you've found me! Let's face it: it can be awkward being in front of a camera. Even I feel nervous sometimes! I understand that anxiety and will do everything I can to make you feel fabulous!

I contacted Kate sometime in November to take photos of my proposal to my then-girlfriend, Morgan. Kate was super easy to work with from the start. She listened to my ideas and gave great input to help me nail down my plan. When the day came, she got the candid photos seamlessly and they turned out great. She was so enthusiastic and happy and it made the shoot a fun time. All of our friends and family love how the final album turned out. I would definitely keep Kate at the top of my list for any future photography needs.

Arlington Heights, IL
  • Classic style
  • Starts at $2,900

I'm an artist by nature. I love photography, but I also love to paint. Growing up I could color for hours. I come from one of those families where everyone is passionate. Things are really loud and your mom asks you when you've eaten last when you walk in the door. If you come from one of these families, you know exactly what I mean. When my son was born I picked up a camera and embarked on a challenge to learn as much as I could about digital photography. I love to be with people and I love to make people feel good about themselves. We should all have a hype girl and I'd love to be yours.

Sarah not only takes amazing photos, she has an easygoing personality that puts you at ease on your wedding day. Her organizational skills make the day run smoothly and keeps the stress away!

Hi! I'm Emma, owner and lead photographer of Emma Mullins Photography. Our goal is simple: to capture your vibe, your people, and your love in a way that looks and feels true to life. We just wrapped our 9th Chicago wedding season, and it's been a whirlwind of all things real and fabulous!

I am a huge believer that if there is anything that you should invest in with regard to your wedding, it is the photographer. The day will pass in the blink of an eye and all that you will have are memories and pictures. I feel so lucky that we had Emma (and her second shooter, Jeremy) to take ours. Not only are our photos such a beautiful, candid, vibrant reminder of our day, but Emma and Jeremy were a joy to have with us at the wedding. They made every second of the day feel more joyful and relaxed. Staged photos can be a chore but they were speedy and fun with Emma in charge. She was also so careful to make sure that we got all of the shots that we hoped for, as well as some very creative ones as awesome ideas came to her. Do yourself a favor and hire Emma MullIns Photography for your wedding. You won’t find a better person to capture your day.

I actually found her work on TikTok and reached out immediately. Her work is fresh and stunning, as She’s really good at capturing “the moment”. When I tell my other married friends how much she was, they’re shocked because she outdoes it with the communication, amount of photos, and on our day she not only stood in line for us, but dealt with our incredibly overbearing parents.

While Nicole is the main photographer of the company, we have also expanded and hired reliable, talented photographers to work along side with us, while still maintaining a small business feel.

Hiring Nicole to take our wedding pictures was one of the BEST decisions I made during my wedding planning journey. Not only is she an AMAZING photographer, she is fun to work with, very flexible and extremely reliable. She also edits your photos very quickly so you get the final photos soon after your event! Her pricing is very reasonable, especially after you see what a great job she does. You can tell she is extremely passionate about her business and the art of taking photos. She truly cares about your special day (even though she’s been to thousands of weddings) you never feel like she is on auto pilot. I loved working with her so much for my wedding, I am hiring her again to take family photos of my newborn baby!! Don’t hesitate to hire her, you definitely won’t regret it!!

Get in touch for pricing, or if you just want to connect more directly. Always happy to chat!

Working with King & Opal / Mariah was AMAZING! We had a pandemic courthouse wedding but from the photos you'd think we OWNED City Hall. She was so good at bringing out the best of us on a snowy 30 degree day -- especially my wife who is already camera shy -- and capturing the vibe we were looking for. We also had such great conversation along the way, we could have kept the day going purely just to keep talking. People RAVE about our photos when they see them. The only mistake we made was not budgeting more time for photos in our day because there was so much more we could have captured. Definitely add King & Opal to your wedding team.

As Chicago area wedding photographers for over twenty years now, we’ve seen and captured just about every incarnation of true love imaginable—and yet, no two stories have ever been the same. That’s why we approach your special day as a unique journey we take together. We walk you through every step, from engagement photos and perfectly capturing those forever wedding day moments, to expertly crafting your very first family heirloom…your wedding album!

I am so HAPPY we hired TWA to do our wedding. The price matches the quality of the staff, services, and final product. The constant deals and promotions offered are well worth it! Amanda keeps you updated and informed throughout the whole process and I was so at ease this whole time. My photographers were EXCELLENT. My entire day went smoothly and my main photographer was able to capture every moment I wanted. They definitely take your desires to heed and if you have no idea what you'd like (like me at times), they guide you and help you find the scene, moment, pose, whatever you need. I look forward to using TWA again in the future for the rest of our life moments.

I've not only gotten to witness Clayton in action, but I've also gotten to work directly alongside him for many wedding days. Not only is Clayton incredibly skilled and creative in his work, but he is just the absolute best to be around. When choosing your photographer or videographer for your wedding day, you want someone who you actually WANT to hang out with all day long on your wedding day. This is honestly the person that you spend the most time with throughout the day, and he will have you smiling from ear to ear the entire time. And then he delivers such an excellent product, I can't recommend Lux Everlasting enough!

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 husband and I absolutely LOVED working with Jennifer! From our first meeting with her we knew she would be a great photographer! She came to our initial meeting prepared with ideas as well as samples of her work; which made my husband and I feel very comfortable moving forward with her. Her vision and her plan were clear. Jennifer is so professional and her photos really tell a story which is what we were hoping for. From our engagement pictures to our wedding day, Jennifer captured the feelings of the moments rather than just a bunch of posed photos (of course we had some of those too because you have to!). On the big day, Jennifer was very organized yet flexible. The custom timeline she provides for the day is BEYOND helpful and she does a great job at helping you/your group stick to the schedule. She helped to keep things flowing and was able to capture every image/moment we had discussed. I would absolutely recommend Jennifer!

I grew up the kid who was obsessed with all of the Disney princess movies and just in love with the idea of “true love”, which has shown itself in SO many ways in my life. My first true love I found was my camera and photography. I picked up my dad's camera for the first time when I was 8 years old and decided at that moment that it was all I wanted to do. I could show people the way I saw the world and to little 8 year old me, that was the coolest thing EVER. It started off as capturing the things I loved, whether that was animals at the zoo, my friends, or siblings… I was ALWAYS shoving a camera in somebody's face.

Hey there! I’m a weddings and couples photographer based in Chicago, IL with my partner Emily and my rescue dog Daxter. I’m here to document joy and celebrate all the meaningful moments with the kickass people that find me.

Sam is wonderful! Sam was the photographer for our rooftop wedding in Chicago. We had an amazing experience, start to finish. Sam took the time to sit down with us beforehand to discuss the vibe we were going for and any special details for our event. That extra time for us to get to know him was so huge in helping us feel comfortable and relaxed when the time came to get in front of the camera. On the day of our wedding, Sam was awesome with our friends and family—he got every shot that we hoped for and so many more. No joke, TONS of our guests commented to us how fun and friendly he is and we were like, WE KNOW, he's the best! Our photos turned out so, so well. Sam nailed the portraits, he nailed the candids, he nailed the night-time dance floor shots (and it was DARK). He can do it all and he's just a pleasure to work with. I've recommended him to several friends for engagement and wedding photos because I know he'll kill it and give every client 100%. What a guy!

We have worked with Chelsea for engagement photos, wedding photos, and just because photos. A photographer is the one person you are with the whole wedding day, so picking Chelsea was a no brainer. She gets the job done, but does so with kindness and through friendship. She also does a great job of getting us out of our comfort zone. Our wedding photos are truly stunning and are hung up throughout the house. She will be our go to photographer for all future needs! Thanks again Chelsea!

Six years of taking bright, colorful, fun wedding photos in the city has taught me how to deliver a complete gallery of your day told in an artistic, meaningful, and unobtrusive way--because I'm here to document your day, not to direct it. As much as I love taking photos (it's truly my favorite thing in the world!), I believe your wedding is about celebrating all your people being in the same place at the same time + kicking back and enjoying while I make sure all those memories are on camera.

Hi! I'm John, a wedding photographer based in Chicago, IL. I believe deeply that great wedding photography is about creating imagery that is as visually compelling, as it is emotionally significant. Weaving the images together to tell unforgettable stories. My distinct 'documentary meets fine-art' style is a product of my unrelenting commitment to my craft and the complete trust that my couples place in me. I primarily cover weddings in the Chicagoland area, but I will travel to any destination worldwide for those seeking an adventure.

Awarded Best of Zola
John is easy to like and root for. He cares deeply about his craft, his couples, and the people he works with. And to top it off, he's tremendously talented and skilled in photography.

Chicago-based wedding and elopement photographer. I like to make my clients take off their shoes or at least get bare and honest about their love in front of my camera. I love to explore the urban environment with you and make your wedding portraits feel real and true to your life in the city. But I also take any chance I get to drag you to the woods or the beach for some barefoot wedding portraits. Aren’t we so lucky to have those right here in the city!

Awarded Best of Zola
I found Essi after a pretty stressful engagement session with another company. I knew after our first phone conversation and seeing her work, I wanted her to be a part of our special day! Essi has such a great energy and wants to make sure the day truly captures the essence of the couple and we couldn’t be happier with our wedding pictures!! What I love most about her style is that she isn’t just in one lane but let’s the moment and picture dictate the style - light and airy, editorial, moody. She is such a positive, calming force and loved that we met with her and got to know a little bit about us before our wedding. I recommend Essi to anyone who wants amazing pictures from an artist who truly loves her craft!! :)

Kim is very easy to work with she made it very relaxed and easy to take photos with her. I am someone who doesn’t like attention on me and has social anxiety and she helped me to feel relaxed while taking the photos. She didn’t just take beautiful photos for us but she made the experience fun and memorable for us as well. I would definitely recommend Kim for photos.

Where do I begin?... Ed & Aileen are freaking INCREDIBLE! To start, they are both amazing humans -- so sweet, fun and easy to work with. My husband and I never had a professional shoot taken before, so we were a little nervous before taking our engagement photos. Aileen made it so fun, by the end we forgot there were tons of people staring at us! My favorite thing about Ed & Aileen Photography is their knack for candid shots. They are all about the fun and just being yourself. This is what sold us on them, the second we saw their photos we knew we HAD to work with them. Planning anything with them was super simple and easy. No waiting around for days or weeks at a time to get a response. They were by far our favorite vendors. So much so that 2 of my friends are using them for their weddings next year! USE ED & AILEEN PHOTOGRAPHY, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! They are modern day photography super heroes!

I've picked up a camera just about every day since I fell in love with photography in 2013. Though every shoot holds something unique, it takes a lot to catch me off guard after nearly a decade in business. I pride myself on my ability to quickly connect with my clients, making them feel comfortable, cared for, and confident that they look great. Not every event I’m at goes exactly according to plan and I know how to roll with the punches. Being a helpful and calming presence in the midst of your wedding is second nature to me. Basically, I try to treat people how I want to be treated: with fairness and understanding!

If you have the opportunity to hire this talented professional I would highly recommend it. Zach was so fun to work with and immediately put us both at ease on our big day. He was able to provide insightful suggestions to make sure the day was as stress-free as possible. Whether he was photographing us as we got ready or rallying our big families into a a single shot after the ceremony, Zach worked seamlessly. He's professional and funny and knows how to get the shots he needs. He makes the whole operation look effortless. Only 4 DAYS AFTER the wedding, we received all our photos edited and ready to share! We were so happy with the results and could not believe the level of quality and quick turnaround time. 12 out of 10 stars for Zach!

My couples become verrrry dear to my heart, and it gives me the deepest joy to be part of engagement season + wedding days.

From the moment we met Allie, we knew something about her was so special. My husband and I first met Allie when we took our engagement photos and after running around and laughing with her, we couldn’t stop talking about how much FUN we had. Any time I’ve spent with Allie or even talking to her have easily become my some of my favorite memories from this special season of life. During the time leading up to the wedding she would occasionally send me sweet voice notes or messages as little reminders of her thinking about me and Cameron and praying for us as we got closer and closer to our wedding day. By the time our wedding rolled around, I genuinely just felt like Cameron and I were hanging out with one of our dearest friends on our wedding day and she just happened to be taking photos of us. Allie has a magical way of capturing moments as if she’s seeing them from your own eyes. Each photo she took feels like I’m seeing my own memories of our beautiful day come to life and that is absolutely priceless. I will always treasure my sweet Allie and these photos that we will cherish our whole lives!

I began my career as a photojournalist working for newspapers and magazines documenting current events, sports and pop culture. Creating meaningful images is at the heart of being a photojournalist and it's this mentality that I bring to my wedding photography. I work to create timeless images that truly tell the story of one of the most important days of your life.

As a long-time wedding and event planner, I've been working alongside Peter Thompson for many years. He has been on my list of preferred wedding vendors since I began working in the Chicagoland area. I find Peter to be extremely personal, professional, and reliable. In coaching my clients, I recommend they find a photographer who they enjoy being around because, quite frankly, the couple will spend more time with the photographer than with the planner or anyone else during the day! In seeking out a photographer, you also want someone who will smile and get along with your guests so they feel comfortable getting their photo taken. Additionally, his photos are always on point! You'll find his photos to be consistent and traditional in that they will withstand the test of time. In my opinion, he is one of the most reliable photographers in our city! Every one of my clients is always so happy they went with Peter as their photographer.

I made a conscious decision early on in my career that I wanted to LOVE what I do and do what I love. With a bachelor’s degree in graphic design and photography you could say I’m one of the few that stuck with my major and still love it to this day. I’m a helpless romantic, a wife, a mother, a worldwide traveler a marathon runner and a wedding photographer. Deciding who will bring your memories to life is one of your most important ones. When the whirlwind and excitement of the day is over, beautifully captured images will be what help you revisit the romance, emotion and spirit of all of those little moments.

Don’t hesitate to book Christine as your photographer for your next big event, she was incredible! Christine works with you from the start to craft a photography package and schedule that work best for you and your event. Not only does she make you feel so comfortable (and help loosen up any stiff subjects!) during the photography sessions, but she captures the best shots based on the natural light (or lack there of since we had a winter wedding where the sun set early) – and they all turned out perfect. Christine photographed our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures. Both events were impacted by weather and it didn’t even matter thanks to Christine. She turned a rainy day into pure magic, allowing us to have the best pictures as memories. One thing we had never considered when booking a photographer was their ability to help you plan a timeline and stick to that timeline – Christine is by far the best at this! Even with our catholic ceremony, pictures, and reception spanning over 10 hours – she kept us on schedule, while still getting all of the shots that we wanted. We find ourselves still flipping through our wedding pictures everyday, and it was by far one of our best vendor choices. Thank you Christine!

I'm just a suburban girl who decided to turn her dreams into a reality. I'm all about building relationships and connections. After all, that's what wedding photography is all about. I do this job every weekend because I'm one of those people that is obsessed with pictures. Not just for a living, but for myself. I understand the value in photography. I do this for people who are just like me. For the ones who cherish those photos hanging on the walls. The photos still in that purple glitter album from 2002 of you and your friends in Limited Too. Those memories are all we have from the anchors that built us. Photos are proof that we have lived

Awarded Best of Zola
I work in the corporate client service industry, so when it came to my vendor team, I had incredibly high standards as I understand what quality client service looks like. Lauryn exceeded every expectation I had by a mile. In my 18 months of working with her, her communication was always timely (typically 24 hrs) and highly effective. Before I had signed a contract, she helped me build a high-level timeline for the wedding, got to know what was important to me and answered my (many) questions. She reconfirmed details with me throughout the process to ensure we were always on the same page, knew my shot list front to back, and gave me multiple status updates throughout wedding day so I would know that she was capturing everything I had requested. We had many group formal shots which she powered through with no issue during cocktail hour (which is a feat in itself). As a type A bride, she was a dream come true to work with. Her personality was incredible - she kept us so comfortable, happy and laughing throughout the day. My husband and I are not at all photogenic people naturally, but after working with Lauryn at our engagement shoot, I had no concerns that we would look unnatural on our wedding day, which resulted in a no-stress, all fun wedding day. This was my #1 concern going into the wedding process, so to not pay it a thought on the wedding day exemplifies the total confidence that Lauryn inspires in her couples. On the wedding day she took complete charge of the day in the best way possible. The remainder of my vendor team was on the less experienced side so Lauryn was the one doing the heavy lifting of keeping us on schedule, which she did flawlessly. This was also her first time working at my venue, so I was able to see her keen eye for beauty in action, picking out various locations for our photos. Each photo and location turned out better than the next even though she didn't have a pre-existing shot location list to turn to which really speaks to her eye for turning the ordinary into extraordinary. Our galleries for the engagement shoot & wedding were turned around faster than I had known was humanly possible with no sacrifice on quality to meet those tight timelines. (Our engagement photos came the next day and our wedding gallery was delivered within two weeks, which I believe are her general turnaround times depending on what time of year it is). One final note on something I had not seen highlighted in other reviews. Normally I think that guest and reception dancing photos are nice to have but generally aren't super memorable. This is NOT at all how Lauryn's photos were. Each photo of the guests is something that they could frame in their own homes despite them not being the main focus of the day. Lauryn took the care to photograph as many couples as possible during the Anniversary Dance, so now they have beautiful keepsakes celebrating their own marriages, not only mine. Overall, Lauryn managed to capture the spirit of the day from start to finish, including the little touches I worked so tirelessly on. She truly thinks of everything, gives the wedding day her all, and is worth every single penny of her investment cost and honestly so much more. I will scream a recommendation for her from the rooftops to every couple I know who gets engaged going forward (especially if you are a Swiftie).

I truly couldn’t have asked for a better photographer on our wedding day. She had done my graduation pictures, so I wanted to have her do our wedding pictures due to how amazing the grad pictures came out. She is extremely proactive - she had us meet 2 times before the wedding in order to go over details and background on my husband and I. I could truly see that she genuinely cares about each of her clients and giving them the best day possible and figuring out what’s important to each couple. I really appreciate this because felt like a collaborate effort. On the day of the wedding, she had the BEST energy. Her joy, positivity and personality truly shine and radiate. I received so many comments on how much guests loved our photographer because of how lively and wonderful she was. Additionally, she was extremely creative by having us do table shots and working with the DJ to turn it into a fun game of which table was the fastest. We and our guests had such a fun time with this idea, and how we were able to get pictures with all our guests. I truly can’t recommend LaTosha enough. She is authentic, creative, radiant, talented, and so wonderful to work with. Our wedding day and pictures came out beautifully and because of her it was stress free and fun! Thank you for everything!!!

We are blessed to photography many weddings & events around the world. We've had the honor to photograph many celebs as well. All our clients are a blessing & we know it’s an honor to be chosen to photograph their memorable event. We are grateful to all who has given us the privilege to work with them. We strive to tell our couple’s story & reflect their energy in each photograph. Like Elton John & Bernie Taupin, we work in two rooms: Bob is the principal photographer & handles all the logistics of our shoots. Dawn completes our vision by editing photos & making each image sing, then designs a fine art book to encapsulate the each story.

Bob & Dawn were nothing short of amazing to work with. My husband and I changed our wedding plans quite a bit, but decided to move forward with a small and intimate wedding on our original date. Bob & Dawn were so accommodating and easy to work with, they took a ton of stress off my plate. Every single picture from our day is perfect. Bob captured every moment that I was hoping for....AND MORE. I feel as if I have an intimate relationship with the two of them now, they were involved in some pretty important and special moments of my life, and I am so grateful to have met them and gotten to work with them during a stressful time. Although I had a COVID wedding, you would truly never tell from our photos and everything I was hoping for was delivered by this dynamic duo. I know I will stay in touch with them over the years, and am grateful to have worked with them when I did!

The easiest and most special part of my wedding!! I got married last August 2022 and planned it all by myself while being a medical student. Gubert Photos made the photography aspect of our wedding so easy and incredible - not to mention the actual photos, which were everything we wanted and more! Having this day captured was one of my biggest priorities and Gubert Photos did not fail me once. I was able to fill a whole scrapbook with all of our favorite moments from our wedding and thanks to the quality of the photos, we look at it all the time. I would recommend this company to anyone looking to capture any special party or event and I anticipate working with them again in the future!! Thanks again for being great!!

I've been doing photography since high school years. After seven years working as photo journalist, I worked for 5 years on cruise line industry in the photography department. It was 2000 when I became a wedding photographer and opened our own photography studio.

As an event coordinator I look for vendors who are professional, a great value, and a team player with the other vendors at the event. Doru & Claudia Halip are at the top of that list. They have a real caring for their clients needs, making sure the photographic part of the day goes smoothly, with no drama. Many photographers do phenomenal work, however it is all about them, not the Bride & Groom. Doru & Claudia stay in the background, and their work is amazing. Many of their finished pieces have been magazine worthy, and have been published. You don't have to be a model to have incredible photographic memories of your big day, if you hire H Photography!
