Roman Lorek Photography

5.0

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

Springfield, IL
  • Fine art style
  • Starts at $4,000
  • Serves Hoffman Estates, 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 Hoffman Estates, 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
I first met Jana when she invited me to create florals for a styled shoot she was creating. When the pictures came back, I was absolutely floored. Never have I seen my work captured in such a sensitive, artful way. The attention to lighting, composition, & detail was exquisite. As I floral designer, I don't think ever felt so respected, or had my work so elevated as it was thru Jana's lens. Since that shoot, as I've gotten to know her more, I have also come to know the deep love Jana brings to her work and her clients. She captures the spirit of the moments she photographs, not just the static images. Any couple who has the honor of being photographed by Jana on their special day is blessed indeed.

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!

Kate was an absolute dream to work with! She brought the energy and fun we were looking for! It was really important to us as a queer couple to have a photographer who understood this and could make everyone feel comfortable. Kate went above and beyond to ensure she could best support us. From the very first phone call I was excited to work with Kate and didn't even talk to any other photographers! I loved Kate's work online and knew she would be great to work with! Kate was fun, energetic, creative and thoughtful in her work! The pictures turned out wonderful! Kate helped us make memories that I will cherish forever!

Monika Thorpe Photography
Hoffman Estates, IL

We live in such a fast paced world, so it is delightfully liberating when I get to slow things down a bit frame by frame. But before I do, here are some things to know about me. I am suburban lifestyle and portrait photographer, weather enthusiast; married to a wonderful husband and mother to two precious little boys. Yes, I now know what it feels like to have your own kids cooperate for photos. It sometimes takes a village. But I must say I have gotten mighty good at it. So don’t fret. It is possible! Since 2010, I’ve been behind the lens capturing whatever comes my way. This includes all of your smiling faces. My artistic style is full of color and fun. Not airy, not moody, just FUN! You’ll be laughing throughout your photo session. With me, with each other but mostly at me! I love making people laugh.

We used Evian’s Photo for our wedding event on January 20 and were ecstatic first of all with the quality of guidance provided by the photographer and videographer for the days events. They provided direction for us to get the right composure photos and the quality of the images were spectacular. We were pleased in every way at first we were unsure as to whether or not, they would be able to provide the quality of service that we could rave, but I have to seeing the final product, including some of the mistakes that happened during the vent that we corrected on the video we were thoroughly pleased with their work and particularly the final product. Also, did I mention the price they gave us was the absolute lowest of all estimates we received ation with the staff in Chicago was superb, and every promise they made to us was fulfilled, including delivering the final product before the contract dates. We will highly recommend this photography and videography service to all of our family members.

  • Photojournalistic style

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!

Emma was ABSOLUTELY spectacular, we can not say enough good things about her. We snatched her up from a friend's wedding because we were so impressed while we watched her work. She's incredibly easy to work with and super punctual and responsive. We were meant to have our wedding in 2020 but had to postpone due to covid, Emma was flexible and we were so happy that she was able to accommodate our new date. Not only is she a great photographer, she is also a genuinely wonderful human. I lost my mom early in 2020 and Emma sent over a lovely care package and note. Totally unexpected and just shows you how she will go the extra mile. My husband and I are a bit camera shy but she did a great job getting us out of our shells. She is incredibly creative and shared great ideas that lead to some of our favorite shots. She is truly an expert in her field and her eye for seeing things in a unique or artistic way is unmatchable. I wish I could hire Emma to photograph every important moment in my life!

Mariah with King and Opal photographed our cozy, winter Chicago wedding this year. Words cannot express how wonderful it was working with her for our special day! Our experience was better than we could have ever imagined. From our initial meeting, we immediately felt comfortable. Mariah is easy-going but still made sure we had everything organized for our big day. She provided a very helpful template to make sure we covered all shots and provided numerous tips. She was always readily available by email, phone, zoom to answer any question/concerns. As for the big day, everything flowed with ease. She kept us on our timeline and made sure we made it to all our stops. Mariah was easy to work with and blended well with our guests- we received so many compliments. She made us feel so comfortable and confident. Our pictures are amazingly beautiful!!! She captured our day perfectly. Her work is so different in her unique approach to details. We did not want a cookie cutter photographer and she hit the vibe perfectly- romantic, sexy, fun, and classic. We would highly recommend King and Opal for weddings and/or other important events. We are beyond grateful that she worked with us and was able to capture the best day of our lives. Thank you, Mariah!

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!

I’m a Chicago & Central Illinois wedding photographer dedicated to capturing unfiltered moments and raw emotions in a way that feels genuine, honest and true to your very core. At NTCo. our photography goes beyond mere documentation. It tells a story of real love, connection and intimacy.

Awarded Best of Zola
I have a unique experience because I've had both Noelle & DJ! I originally booked Noelle in June or July 2022 for November 2023. We had a beautiful engagement shoot with our package in September, and got an email in November about a mix up with another couple's (who had booked before us) venue giving the wrong date, and were given the option to keep Noelle or have DJ shoot our wedding at the associate rate with an extra engagement shoot with DJ. I was super stressed about what to do as DJ was newer to NTCo at the time, but it truly *didn't matter* because the truth is, whoever you work with, you're going to get the same quality experience. From a personality standpoint, both DJ & Noelle have upbeat personalities that will put you at ease. From an administrative standpoint, various detailed surveys and timelines were put together to make sure the day ran as smoothly as possible. From a photo standpoint - pictures, regardless of the photographer, are taken in the same style and edited the same way. I haven't gotten my full wedding album back yet because it was recent, but I was very happy with both of our engagement shoots as well as our wedding sneak peaks. The bottom line is, you can see the portfolios and pricing on your own, but as someone who has been a bride working with these wonderful people, I can attest that you will have a quality experience working with NTCo!

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.

Jennifer and the rest of the Captured Couture team were nothing short of amazing! From our first conversation all the way to our wedding day, Jennifer was attentive, punctual, and very professional. She always responded very quickly whenever I had any questions. She was very calming and you could tell she knew exactly what she was doing. When our wedding day came, she was calm and collected, which made me feel very calm and collected. We received all of our photos a month after our wedding which I feel is a VERY fast turn around time! She truly was amazing and I can't thank her enough.

When the dogs aren't keeping me busy I love traveling all over the world, cooking amazing meals, jumping on my Peloton and eating Thai food while binging Netflix.

Awarded Best of Zola
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!

My name is Alaura, and I am a Chicago-based photographer with a love of great art, true stories, and old-school glamour. I believe in romanticizing everyday life for the joy of it. For me, that means fine teacups on a Wednesday, bouquets for no reason, and a home full of antiques. This also translates to my photography style!

We loved Alaura’s work so so so much. First She was super punctual and professional. She made sure to capture every detail and never stopped taking pictures which to me was awesome. She also had the greatest ideas of photos for us. I consider myself a very shy person and I usually don’t enjoy when the spotlight is on me. But with Alaura it felt super easy and natural and I got to enjoy every part of this process. She just encourage us to be ourselves and the result of that was amazing. Thank you so so so much Alaura for all your beautiful and amazing work !!

Wendy was such a joy to have photographing our special day! She was so incredibly sweet, funny, accommodating, and kind. She rolled with ALL the little hiccups, the drama, and the emotions that will inevitably happen on your wedding day! She made all of those little moments less stressful with her kind smile and lightheartedness. The photographs she took were absolutely stunning, and so many people have told us so. She improvised at all the right times, and made me feel so at ease the entire day. She executed exactly what we wanted, came prepared with a list of photos I’d mentioned to her prior, and made sure to remind me of the photo inspiration I sent to her. She is artistic, adventurous, and professional, all at the same time. Between the caterers, the venue, the DJ, and every vendor in between, we felt that Wendy was worth every penny. We could not have asked for a better photographer. Thank you so much for making our day so much more perfect!

I was that kid enchanted by Disney Princess movies and the idea of "true love". My true love revealed itself through photography. At 8, I grabbed my dad's camera and was hooked, thrilled to show people my world. I started with zoo animals, friends, and siblings, eager to freeze moments in time. As I grew, I learned from local photographers and knew by 17 that photography was my calling. Since then, I’ve captured love in all its forms: couples, new parents, best friends, and the joy of seeing your favorite band live. The world is full of magical firsts, and I'm honored to capture these moments forever.

They have such an attention to details and make every picture count. I have never felt so at ease with taking pictures than I did with them. They tailor each shot to the couple and venue. At the reception we got to enjoy our time with our guests and got great candid pictures in the process. Their work is truly of the highest quality and I look forward to booking them again for my future events.

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.

From start to finish, my wife and I were truly overwhelmed by Sam’s talent, calm demeanor, and overall organization even on a hectic wedding day. We knew during the engagement shoot that we were in the best hands in the city. We, along with our family’s, thrived off of his consistent humor and lightheartedness throughout the day. Sam always made us feel incredibly comfortable and it came across in our photos. We could not picture our wedding day without him there (and even wanted him to stay as a guest). He truly went above and beyond in every aspect, helping out and organizing wherever he was needed! We are so happy with all of our photos, and will be sure to continue using Sam in future life events! A true Chicago gem! We did all the work for you - the search is over!! His work and character speak for itself.

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.

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!

It hasn't steered me wrong yet, infact it has brought me here. To you.

She is professional and easy to work with when planning a wedding day, and her pictures are STUNNING! She makes my brides feel comfortable and confident in themselves on wedding day and spends time to get to know their personalities to make sure the day is stress free. One of the things I always tell couples when looking at a photographer is that they should request to look at full galleries vs just looking at website photos or instagram. It is important to see consistency in a whole gallery that retells your wedding day and not just have a couple pictures that are great. I cannot recommend Jennifer enough, and I am looking forward to working with her again during wedding season this year :)

I am located in Chicago, IL and I LOVE photography. I am inspired by the fun and wild couples who are looking for an adventure. Wherever there is fun, laughter, and good company, I'M THERE. Being outside, camera in hand is obviously one of my favorite things to do, but equally a passion of mine is connecting with people and making them smile! Let's get you married and make the most of it while capturing all of it!! If you are ready to play dress-up, have a good time, and let me be your third wheel, let’s do it!

Amanda was amazing. From the beginning she was incredibly communicative and easy to work with. She had lots of great ideas that produced shots my wife and I cherish. To add to that, on our wedding day we dealt with high winds and torrential freezing rain on the Washington coast. Through all of it, Amanda focused on getting the best shots of my wife and I, the ceremony, and our families in the most adverse conditions. She did great! Editing and delivery was quick and easy as well. I can't recommend Amanda Ford enough.

Hi guys! My name is Allie!!! I am a traveling wedding photographer based out of chicago & texas. My heart literally beats for wedding days and redemptive stories. I love celebration + commitment + dance parties + traveling!!! It is my honor to capture the sweetest stories. My couples become verrrry dear to my heart, and it gives me the deepest joy to be part of engagement season + wedding days.

Awarded Best of Zola
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.

Without a doubt, Christine was our very favorite vendor to work with for our wedding day! We are so happy to have had her as our wedding photographer, and will absolutely be recommending her to all of our newly engaged friends and family members! From the very beginning of our wedding planning process, Christine was SO kind, responsive, flexible, and patient. She spent time getting to know us as a couple, the vision for our wedding day, and what our schedule for the day would look like. She played a huge role in making sure the day ran smoothly and that we had time for all of the photos we wanted. I'm confident in saying that we (myself, my husband, our families, and wedding party) felt calm and comfortable all day because of Christine! Her experience in this industry truly speaks for itself. Most importantly, Christine effortlessly and perfectly captured so many special moments throughout our day - we could not be more grateful! She is an incredibly talented photographer and so much fun to work with. We are completely blown away by the photos that we've received - we cannot stop looking through them, and so many people have been wanting to know who our photographer was. Obviously, we are recommending her to everyone without hesitation. Thank you, Christine, for providing us with the most beautiful wedding photos that we will always cherish!

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

Lauryn is honestly amazing - she is so organized and on top of everything there is no way our wedding could have gone on without her - not to mention the sneak peek/blog post she posted mere days after the wedding are absolutely STUNNING I am so excited to see the rest of the photos but am already THRILLED with what she has provided for me. She is so easy to communicate and work with and her second shooter, Chelsea was also a dream! I loved having them there as well as my now husband and the rest of our bridal party/families.

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 have said it before and I will say it time and time and time again - Nikki is one of the most talented, genuine, and kindest souls you will EVER meet! She photographed our wedding on October 4th, and I continue to receive the sweetest comments from my bridal party, family members, and wedding guests regarding how accommodating, polite, and sweet Nikki is! Although we have only received a "sneak peak" of our photos thus far, I have received ENDLESS compliments regarding the quality of these photos. Her photos are warm, timeless, intimate, and just full to the brim with love. We had a tight timeline on the day of our wedding leaving limited time for photos, and Nikki was AMAZING at taking charge of the situation and helping to keep everyone on track to ensure we would get the photos we desired. She is organized, timely, and poised and professional in all her interactions with both us and other vendors the day of. I would pick Nikki time and time again for any and all life events because I just know that not only will she take the photos, but they will be photos that we will treasure and share for a LIFETIME.

I cannot express enough gratitude for Sarah's incredible work as our wedding photographer. From start to finish, she exceeded all expectations and left us with memories that will last a lifetime. One of the most remarkable aspects of Sarah's photography is her energy. Throughout the entire day, she remained calm and composed, even as we were consistently behind schedule. As Type A people, my wife and I very much appreciated Sarah's ability to put us at ease and embrace the flow of the day. Sarah's talent shines through in every single photo she captured. Each image is a masterpiece, meticulously edited to perfection. The attention to detail and care she puts into her work is evident in the stunning results.

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.

We couldn't have asked for a better photography team for our special day than Doru and his team. From the moment we met them, their professionalism and attention to detail were evident. They were not only punctual but also incredibly polite and attentive throughout the entire event. Doru's creativity truly shone through in the photos he captured. His unique ideas added an extra layer of magic to our wedding memories, and the end results surpassed all our expectations. We were blown away by the quality and creativity evident in every shot. Moreover, their efficiency was remarkable. Despite the fast-paced nature of the day, they managed to capture every important moment flawlessly. And to top it off, the turnaround time for receiving the photos was impressively quick, allowing us to relive the joy of our wedding day almost immediately. If you're looking for photographers who are not only talented but also genuinely passionate about their craft, look no further. They truly went above and beyond to make our day unforgettable, and we are forever grateful.

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!
