Thomas Doggett Photography

5.0

Batavia, IL
  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $1,400

I have a lot to offer, and I do things differently than most other photographers. More than anything, I want to make sure I’m the perfect fit for your wedding. My style and approach is a generous mix of documentary and editorial-style portraiture. For the majority of the day, I stay very hands off, focusing 100% on the story. You won’t find me asking you or your friends to stage or recreate moments, but you will find me ready to capture those moments before they even happen. During portraits, it’s a little different. I give plenty of direction, working to bring creative ideas and poses to make images that are as unique as the people in them.

Thomas hands down is one of the nicest photographers I know. As a business owner and wedding vendor myself, we work with hundreds of photographers every weekend and I can truly say Thomas is by far one of the most genuine photographers out there. Such a nice guy, and extremely easy to work with. We worked together on a past clients wedding back in 2021 and ever since then I knew this was a photographer I wanted to work with again. His work is amazing and he truly cares about his clients!! Definitely recommend!

Hi there! I'm a Chicagoland native and currently live in Aurora with my lovely wife Bridget. I first picked up my parent's camera when I was 12 and since then have never been without one. I love being creative behind the lens and making new friends along the way. I also love Oreos...

Anders Maagaard

Wheaton, IL
  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $2,490

Hej, I’m Anders, originally from Denmark, I made the move to the United States in 2019 to marry my wonderful wife, Kristin. Photography has always been a passion of mine, and I've coupled that with my love for adventure. Whether it's traveling the world, scuba diving, hiking, or ultra running, I've always found ways to incorporate photography into these experiences. However, everything changed for me when I shot my first wedding. Being part of such a special day, filled with love and magic, made me realize that this is what I truly want to do.

Awarded Best of Zola
I will start this review off by simply stating that the choice of the photography “vendor” might have been one of the most important choices to me in our wedding planning process and the one that gave me much anxiety initially. I was looking for someone who could capture the feeling of our day, of course get lovely photographs of our friends and family, and also let shine their artistic talents to create photos that could stand alone without the obvious label of a “wedding shot.” The decision of which photographer to pick with the initial brief above seemed daunting...especially in a sea of what seemed to be very standard wedding photographers all at about the same price point or much more for what didn’t seem like better quality. When I stumbled upon Anders, I immediately felt a connection to his artistic style that felt in a different league to what I had been looking at. We had an initial consult with Anders and all of the feelings of anxiety over the photographer (how the pictures might turn out, whether we were going to regret our choice, etc.) washed away completely. We are living in the PNW and were able to do an engagement shoot while we were in Chicago briefly and Anders was very flexible with our scheduling and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. He spent extra time, took us to such interesting spots, and the results were so beautiful. I mentioned in our initial consultation that what was most important to me was enjoying our wedding day and the special time with friends and family which is exactly what we got. Anders did such a great job in making sure we stayed on track with important shots and was able to create so many other personal shots that I just love looking back on! Not only this, but he also ended up creating a wedding video for us that was so special. Not only is Anders a wonderful photographer, but a wonderful person who is so friendly, kind, and truly passionate about his work. We are not the only ones who noticed; We had multiple guests after the wedding comment on how fun Anders was to interact with. I cannot think of an easier decision that we made for our wedding. I cannot recommend Anders enough!

Jana Blue Photography (Photo + Film)

5.0

Wheaton, IL
  • Classic style
  • Starts at $2,800

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
Jana shot our wedding back in April. These are, by far, the best pictures we've ever had. 200% satisfied with the results! Jana was very professional, arrived on time and made us feel very comfortable while shooting. The images speak for themselves! Amazing work. Really fast turnaround too! I would recommend Jana Blue over and over again! Thank you so much!

I captured my first wedding in August of 2018, it was the day I fell head over heels in love with wedding photography. It's all about capturing the love story for me..the feels from beginning to end. When you book with AGS, you're signing on for an adventure. Your engagement session is a celebration full of us getting to know one another, lots of laughter, and having fun! As your wedding nears closer AGS will help with your timeline, connect with your vendors ( or introduce you to some of the best) and help plan out the perfect photo locations, along with any other needs to create the perfect day.

I am a bit late, by bit maybe a lot... but we got married in September. Not only did Arleigh keep me grounded, but she was such a help with introducing me to an amazing wedding planner. Since day 1, Arleigh listened to my needs and worked with me to create the perfect package withing my budget. On our first meeting Arleigh was straightforward, communicated well, was professional and really made us feel so secure in our decisions. The day of, she was on top of every detail and moment, and although to me it went by in a blink, she captured every special moment with warmth and feeling. Our album came arrived within 2 days after we placed our order, and as I looked through our album, it was like reliving every moment all over again. Friends and family loved working with Arleigh and Joanna the day of. Everyone loved our photos, that I was even asked by something borrowed blooms to be featured in their marketing ads. If you are looking for beautiful, romantic, and just great aesthetic photos, Arleigh is your girl!!!!!

Eola, IL
  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $4,000

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.

Awarded Best of Zola
I knew my husband and I needed to at least talk to Kate when I saw a post of hers on Instagram from our reception venue. And then I read the caption on the photo, which was all about the organic moments and crafting a story based on what the couple values and wants to include. My husband and I knew that the first half of our wedding day would be chaotic, spread out across multiple locations and fleeting. Not every photo on the "photo checklist" was possible for us -- and we were OKAY with that. Kate heard us and went along for the ride with us in more ways than one. When we were out of a vehicle the day before our engagement session, Kate offered as much availability as she could. During our ceremony and reception, she captured sweet, posed moments and ones I didn't think had been documented. Her photojournalistic style that enhances natural colors and avoids filters was exactly what we were looking for, and we got it. The only thing I wish I had asked more directly about was the amount of time "posed" family photos would take. We knew we wanted certain photos together AND to enjoy our cocktail hour, and I wish we had budgeted our time accordingly and been more vocal with Kate about it.

Shooting weddings is what brings me the most fulfillment and joy. It is pretty amazing when your passion can become your career. I understand the importance of capturing the authenticity and uniqueness of your love. The most rewarding aspect of my work is seeing the joy, sacrifice, beauty and love in marriage. I will help you every step of the way to feel comfortable and confident, but I want to get all of the unplanned moments as well! If you think we're a fit, say hey!

I would HIGHLY recommend Rachel to anyone in the Chicago area or surrounding suburbs. My fiancé and I are getting married in Iowa, but live in the Chicago area. We wanted a photographer near us to help entwine our roots here in Illinois. After lots of research and recommendations, we went with Rachel. While searching, what really stuck out to us was Rachel's ability to take such warm photographs and her ability to capture the little moments. I was hopeful she could do the same for my fiancé, Josh, & I. Boy oh boy, she did that and more. Our session was so much fun because of how easy it was to work with Rachel. Josh and I both felt comfortable and could definitely cut loose after a couple of warm up shots. Rachel knew her stuff when it came to finding good locations in the Chicago downtown area to help photograph us as an engaged couple. She got our edited photos back to us quickly. We are still staring at them today with so much love and appreciation for her hard work to make us look like super stars. +11/10 stars for Rachel Mae Photography.

Zachera Photo

5.0

Elmhurst, IL
  • Classic style
  • Starts at $5,600

Love and storytelling have been the anchors of my life. What began with theatre and paint evolved into my photography career, and I learned love from the very best. This art form allows me to celebrate beauty and hold a mirror to what I believe is the best part of our existence - joy. For this, my heart overflows with gratitude.

Awarded Best of Zola
Simply put, Zachera was the best decision when it came to our wedding planning! The attention to detail that she & her team had on our wedding day reflected in every photo taken. Looking back at the photos makes our hearts swell; they are breathtaking. In the photos, there were so many intimate moments, so much genuine laughter & so much serenity captured. Beyond the photos, our wedding would have not gone so perfectly if we didn't have Zachera & her team! Zachera had every detail of our timeline down & did everything in her power to keep us on track. With our bi-cultural wedding having so many moving parts, that was not an easy task but she executed it in the politest/smoothest way possible. She is the most personable yet most professional person to work with, which is so important in a photographer because they are side by side with you throughout the whole day. We believe that couples should have a connection with their photographer; with Zachera, it's like she read our minds & never missed a beat. She made us feel confident throughout the whole day and left no room for us to panic. She really goes above and beyond for her couples- to the point that she even picked us up Gatorade on the wedding day when it was getting too hot out for us. That wasn't a one time thing or out of character for her; she checked in throughout the whole time leading up to the wedding, encouraging and supporting us in every way. Forever grateful for her presence, the passion she has for her art and her kindness.

Her expertise ensures a perfect balance between the nostalgic charm of film and the modern clarity of digital images. Julie’s work is characterized by natural, spontaneous shots that beautifully document the genuine essence of each couple's special day.

Awarded Best of Zola
This is going to be a long BUT WORTHY review because we cannot say enough AMAZING things about Julie - she is the best photographer ever! Working with Julie was a highlight of our wedding day. She has a very calming presence ad knowing she was there taking my photos made me so happy. She took our wedding photos and an engagement photo shoot and is truly one of the kindest people I have ever met! She has excellent communication and responds to calls and texts almost instantly, which was so reassuring because I was running late getting to the venue and she was fine walking around and getting a lay of the land before I got there. From the initial phone call to hear about her services and ask questions, I knew without a doubt she would be our photographer. She explained her wedding packages, her experience with photography and it felt like I was having a conversation with a friend and throughout the wedding process ad the big day, I feel like we have become great friends. She personalized our photo experience to match our style and that is so apparent in all of the photos. She provided the wedding photos within 6 weeks of the wedding day and kept me in the loop on timing and sent amazing preview pictures. She has a very easy to use gallery in which a link is provided, and you can download all of the photos. I got so many compliments from guests that she was so friendly and took so many great photos. For someone who worries about everything, photos was something I did not have to worry about because she knows exactly what photos should be taken and took suggestions for poses we wanted (it was a wedding on a tennis court so we had a few specific poses we wanted). She got so many great photos of guests, family photos, candid photos during our vow exchange and other times and during the ceremony that every emotion we were feeling was captured on film. My husband hates photos, but Julie is such a calming presence that even my husband and some family members who don’t like photos really enjoyed taking photos. She can strike up a conversation with anyone and is a ball of positive energy, which is a must have on a wedding day! Everyone that talked to her was delighted to meet her and said she was the best photographer they have met, and I couldn’t agree more. I am still amazed at the photos we received. She made the colors of the flowers, my hair (redhead) and the colors of the bridal party dresses pop in a way I didn’t even know was possible. She truly captured every emotion of the day. I couldn’t be happier with the photos and cannot wait for Julie to take more photos in the future for our family!

Hi there! I’m the Jill in JTP. I started this company back in 2010 and have since expanded the team to include other amazing creatives. Working with people, telling stories, and documenting moments are the things I'm most passionate about in my work. Outside of photography – I love to travel and try anything new. I'm at peace in the mountains, or anywhere with a breeze on my face. But I also love sitting on the couch sandwiched between my husband, dog, and two cats.

Jill and her team recently shot my wedding and did a phenomenal job throughout the day. Jill is super professional and did a great job of leading throughout the day and was able to efficiently coordinate a host of people and various shots to get all completed beautifully. Her work is beautiful and if there's a place to invest in a wedding - it's the photos and memories. So grateful to Jill and her whole team for capturing the beauty of our wonderful day!

I adore the challenge & joy of shooting your wedding day- capturing every little moment of your day is my very own marathon and I absolutely live for it. So much so that if you want to share every wedding detail with me, prior to the big day, I'm all for it!

We can’t recommend Kelsey enough!! She was amazing to work with leading up to our wedding and the day of. Kelsey was very responsive, super helpful in creating the timeline for the day, giving us ideas on best shoot locations for the wedding day, and helping everything run smoothly and on time the day of the wedding. Also, her pictures speak for themselves, they are incredible. They really told the story of our wedding day so genuinely and beautifully. She captured my husband and I (who are not the most natural subjects) so authentically and artistically. She also really helped the day move along timely, especially with all of our bridal party and family members. Our priest was also a tad difficult about where Kelsey could stand in the church to take pictures during the ceremony, and she still captured the ceremony in full and beautifully. We also had her create an album for us and our parents after the wedding and they all turned out stunning! Would highly recommend her for your wedding, she is the best!!

Having worked with over 400 couples while sharing their unique and special day, I’ve stepped up to the challenge of capturing a couple’s personal style and touch. This is what keeps me so inspired year after year. Weddings and Engagements combine everything I enjoy about being a photographer with a photo-journalist’s background; there’s the history of the moment, the bride and groom are the “celebrities” of the day with the bridal party their “entourage”, the D.J. creates the concert, and the guests are the crowd!

We booked with Louis to photograph our wedding before we even got engaged. It was the first thing we did because we loved his style and the packages/price. Let me tell you we were blown away with this talent and friendliness. At both our engagement session and our wedding we had a lot of fun taking pictures because Louis made it fun. What could be hours of silence besides some photo cues, turned into good conversations and even better pictures. His partner Gabby was phenomenal as well, they made a great team. They work very fast as our wedding was 12/16 and we already have our sneak peeks and our photos will be done in a few weeks! They sneak peeks are absolutely stunning I cannot wait to see the rest. If you’re considering booking with two 2 tango, DO IT! They captured our wedding perfectly. It looks like a movie. Couldn't be happier with our choice of photographer.

She always has a bright smile on her face and she is so fun to work with. I have witnessed first hand how much her couples and their friends and family enjoy having Joy take their photos! You can see their enjoyment in her photos because Joy captures all of the love and emotion from their big day! I have also been lucky enough to be in front of Joy's camera for a family photo shoot and head shots. Joy made me feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera and I absolutely love those photos and I will always cherish them! I recently had the privilege of working together with Joy to plan and organize a styled photo shoot. She was flexible and open to ideas and she also brought such amazing ideas, along with creative vision and an impeccable sense of style to the table! I recommend Joy to as many of my clients as I can. I get so excited when I learn that we will be working on a wedding together! Not only because I enjoy working with her so much and my clients love working with her too, but also because she is very generous and shares her images of my floral designs with me. It is so important for a florist to have beautiful, professional photos for their portfolio and I know that the photos that receive from Joy will be gorgeous photos that are light filled, romantic and classic! Thank you Joy!

Hey future brides and grooms! I truly love weddings. I love the insane amount of beautiful in-between moments that inevitably happen and I get to capture in a stealthy way that makes me feel like a spy, but also the moments that I get to help create! Posing in a way that creates movement and memories and doesn't just end up being a part of your to-do list but a favorite part of the day! I adore laughs between kisses, the golden glow at sunset, a bride twirling or frolicking (bonus if there's a forest!) and forehead kisses. I love when you're willing to laugh, have fun, and be completely swept up in what is a beautiful but incredibly fast day!

Kayla captured our wedding day perfectly, setting up wonderfully staged photos as well as capturing candid moments. Outside of the staged photo time, she blended into the background and was completely unobtrusive, there for all of the important moments but not in the way. She made the entire process easy and stress free, I highly recommend her as your wedding photographer!

AwestrucKen Photography focuses on ensuring great moments in time are caught. As much as we are tech/gear heads with regards to equipment, we also know that the greatest piece of equipment any photographer can have is his/her brain. We pride ourselves on using our brains and our gear to not just take pictures, but to tell stories. While pictures, as Dorothea Lange says, “take an instant out of time; altering life by holding it still”, it’s also important that each instant of time is part of a person or event’s story.

Ken was great from start to finish and was extremely receptive to what we were looking for in terms of a vendor we can jam with and will also be able to work well with our other vendors - it was very important ALL our vendors were people we could consider people we'd call our friends and Ken is just that! Fun, charming, charismatic and creative - you need that in a photographer! We will continue recommending him to our friends and family for years to come 3

    I (Karin) remember how I felt planning my wedding. Things I had never thought about before suddenly became the most important things to me. I researched like crazy and made inspiration pages in my wedding binder (before the days of Pinterest) so I had a clear idea of what I wanted. Above all I knew I wanted the most BEAUTIFUL photos that represented us. And even though we did all this work to find a great photographer, we were so disappointed with our photos. Now, I realized what mistakes I made and what I wish somebody would have shared with me when I was choosing a photographer.

    We booked EV Photography for our August wedding and we loved our experience. Leading up to the wedding, EV Photography was very responsive and communicative. The engagement photos look wonderful and we can’t wait to see our wedding photos. On the wedding day, Karin kept us on track and on time, going through our shot list. Our bridal party and guests commented on both Karin and Matt’s fantastic personalities so that was awesome too! Thank you so much!

Marc and Mindy have such a special way of making a bride and groom feel so well thought of. Not only are their portraits STUNNING, they make the experience so stress-free. Mindy comes in with a ton of experience in posing...something we know 0 things about. They were so mindful of schedule and specific shots we wanted. It was such a collaborative effort in addition to their expertise. They make sure to ask alll the good questions, including getting to know you, which we found to be such a genuine touch. Don't sleep on booking them for your wedding. You seriously would not regret it. Wedding days and taking photos can be so overwhelming.

From then on I cannot remember I time I hadn't owned a camera... or two... or three! Giving other the gift of memories is what brings me the most joy in life. To know that they will have moments they loved shared and reminisced for generations to come. That is everything.

    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!

    I am so glad we chose Elliot as our wedding photographer. We were blown away by his efficiency and creativity, leaving us with not only amazing photos but also a lot of extra time to spend with our family and friends. We cannot recommend him enough and will always be grateful for his contribution to our big day!

    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!

    Andrea and her team have all been incredible to work with! I knew photography was one of my top "no skimp" areas and Andrea was able to capture everything we wanted! Many of our extended family were not able to attend our ceremony due to COVID, but were able to "experience" everything through the photos we shared. From engagement shoot, to bridal portraits, to actual wedding, to even an extra shoot after the wedding in the mountains--her talent and skill is beyond anyone else I have seen! Even my husband (who does not love to be photographed) feels comfortable during our sessions and agrees she is worth every penny and more! We love her and will definitely continue to work with her for years to come!

    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!

    Michelle and her husband Erick photographed both our engagement photos in the fall of 2020 and our wedding photos in the summer of 2021, and we couldn’t be happier with how they turned out! Michelle took the time to get to know us as a couple through conversations and surveys to best capture our personalities and relationship in her photos. She even was happy to make the trip out to Starved Rock State Park to photograph us in one of our favorite spots for our engagement photo session. Moreover, Michelle is incredibly organized and detail oriented, making her a true joy to work with. From scouting out the perfect places for photographs to helping us schedule our big day to coordinating with all of our other vendors, Michelle was an immense help in our wedding planning process.

    Where do I begin, Heather is an incredible talented photographer to work with! Goes above and beyond to do a great job! Through a recommendation of a professional wedding hair stylist, we were introduced to "Heather Olker Photography". From the start, Heather's approach and her overall personality was one that aligned completely with us. You will come across several vendors during the wedding planning process that have overpowering personalities.. Heather and her team are very well organized, responsive, sweet, helpful and communicated very well with us and with our coordinator at the venue. She helped us in creating the perfect timeline for our wedding day, made us feel completely comfortable through the process. Responded promptly to all our questions and concerns. She traveled from NY to Boston to photograph our engagement photo session, and wedding photos. Which we absolutely love!!! All things being equal, my husband and I are not the most photogenic people ;) The engagement photo session (which I encourage everyone to get one, if only as an opportunity to get to know your photographer before the big day) it allowed us an opportunity to see Heather as someone who completely goes with the flow with our collective vision. There is so much attention to detail you put into your wedding day and those memories are all now fleeting. But investing in someone like Heather and her professional team for your wedding day, capturing the pictures of not just you, but more importantly to us - our family and close friends - was the wisest investment that we could have made last summer. If you're wondering whether or not to book her as your photographer for your special day, don't hesitate. There is no one better! We Highly recommend her.

    The first part of wedding planning for us was finding the photographer because it was the most important to me (other than the man I was marrying). I was prepared to search high and low to find the perfect photographer, but Jessica found us! After attending a wedding expo she reached out and offered her services. We met for coffee and discussed our hopes and dreams for our upcoming wedding. There was an instant connection! I told Jessica wedding photos were at the top of my priority list, because they’re what lasts forever. I can look back on those photos and remember the excitement, happiness, and pure joy of marrying the man of my dreams. I told her I was looking for someone to capture the little moments along with the big. Jessica promised us everything we asked for and, man oh man, she delivered!!! I cannot speak highly enough of her. Every part of the process was made simple because of her organization and talent. Every communication we had was prompt, thoughtful, and respectful. She listened to our wishes, offered her expertise, and created unbelievable results!! Jessica and her assistant (Crystal) were fun to be around and made our sessions with them fly by. They made sure every detail was picture-perfect… even during our freezing cold outdoor engagement session. If anyone asks me for a photographer, Jessica is the name I give, every single time. She signed on to do our wedding, but we are now her clients for life because no one will compare to the incredible job she does. Let me squash any doubts you have and help you with the best decision you’ll make when it comes to finding a photographer… just hire Jessica Yahn!! We are forever grateful to have crossed paths with her!!

    Hi, I’m Piero, lead and wedding photographer, it has been amazing meeting so many couples, with so many stories to tell. I adapt to my couple's wishes so they get their own experience. I don't have a unique photo style, I try to use them all to tell every story, and that helps me capture so many beautiful moments. I capture candid moments as well as helping the couple with their favorite portrait ones. I've been doing weddings all over Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana.

    Awarded Best of Zola
    My wife and I hired Piero for our outdoor fall wedding. We both were not sure what we wanted other than a lot of pictures- neither of us had any idea of any specific types of shots we wanted. Legitimately, we lucked out big time with our photographer choice because Piero is on top of his picture game. We did engagement photos with him and weren't sure of any poses- warning him that we'd need some guidance. He came with a plan, but also was so good with letting ideas unfold organically too. In seconds we were comfortable with his friendly energy and goofy spirit. On our way home after that session we both knew we picked the right guy- and we hadn't seen any photos yet. Within days (so quick) Piero sent us a file of gorgeous engagement photos with so many to choose from. My wife and I did something weird for our wedding- we were married on a Friday with family and close friends and we threw a huge party the next day for the big crowd. We planned it ourselves and hosted on our own property. Needless to say, we were busy up to our eyeballs the months leading up to our big day (weekend lol). We hired Piero for both nights, he took the wheel requiring only a list of people we wanted in pictures, and he crushed it. He made our bridespeople so comfortable creating stunning portraits, he jumped right it on the dance floor with our guests capturing hilarious candid shots, he might have gotten up on our jousting inflatable to catch guests in action, and all in all capture our favorite moments just perfectly. Piero is professional yet fun, good at planning and going with the flow, and he will represent your event exactly as it was. He has all of the plans and all of the backup plans down to a science. Absolutely loved this guy! Don't luck out on your event- hire Piero for certainly perfect pictures!
