John Foley Photography

Chicago, IL
  • Editorial style
  • Starts at $4,800
  • Serves Joliet, IL

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.

John is one of the most talent photographers I know. He truly captures the moment to make it a memory you will never forget. John’s professionalism is top notch and he's super laid back and easy to work with. He laid out an itinerary for us and we were able to adjust for more or less time if we wanted, he helped make the day go perfect and stay on schedule. He has an eye like no other and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. Everyone who has seen our photos are just in awe. John, keep doing what you are doing! You are doing great!!

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

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

Lockport, IL
  • Fine art style
  • Starts at $4,800

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 made the whole process relaxing and provided enough couching to ensure our pictures were the best they could be. It was our first professional photo shoot and Michelle made it feel like it was a normal day for us as she captured beautiful photos.

Hello there! My name is Alana. I am a wedding photographer based in the Chicagoland area who ranges from lovely backyard weddings in the suburbs, to swanky celebrations in the city, to flying off to stunning elopements around the world. Weddings with me include tons of laughter, lots of support in planning and organizing, and photos so vivid that your memories jump out of the frame. (It may also include us both happy crying together on the big day) I make the whole process as easy and fun as possible, and would be absolutely honored to take on the role of turning your memories into artwork!

I truly can't love on Alana enough. She was an absolute doll to work with and our formal engagement photos are STUNNING. She's the biggest cheerleader and hype woman. She lead us through such a genuine and fun shoot that shows off our personalities. It never felt stuffy or staged, we couldn't have asked for a better photographer. The pictures are so vibrant and beautiful, she is the best at what she does.

Channahon, IL
  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $2,950

Hey there! My name is Angelina and I started practicing photography in August 2020, but I've had an interest in it since I was 13 years old (I really wanted to shoot for National Geographic). Now I've expanded into portraits, engagement sessions, and I've done small weddings. I'm a Chicago native but I've also lived in Iowa, Arizona, Nebraska, & Texas. What can I say, I enjoyed a somewhat nomadic lifestyle. I have recently moved back to Illinois in the town of Channahon. My style of photography is more documentary-esque. Either way, I enjoy conceptualizing with clients to find what works for you!

Angelina was such a breath of fresh air. You all know how stressful hosting events can be let alone having a wedding! She came early to the venue which calmed my nerves, and made genuine connections with everyone to produce some of the best photos. What I appreciated most was her professionalism and authenticity.

Hey love, I’m Kara - your Nikon-loving, sunset-obsessed photographer and wedding cheerleader! When my sister got engaged in 2010 and I invested in my first camera, I started to experience the joy of documenting love stories as I photographed her engagement session - my very first session. From there, things grew quickly and now my husband and I photograph 20+ weddings a year together! When I’m not photographing weddings throughout Chicagoland, you can find me snuggling our puppies Georgie + Jett, lovin’ on my family, spoiling the littles in our life as Auntie Kara, gardening in our backyard, and exploring breweries with my husband Kyle.

Kara is one of our favorite photographers to work with, and we have nothing but great things to say about her work!

It all started with a hand-me-down camera and my obsession with weddings. I discovered my passion for photography as a teenager, and I’ve been hooked ever since! After earning my degree in Paralegal Studies, I decided it was time to pursue my dream. There’s something about photographing weddings that brings me true happiness. I love capturing the genuine connection between couples on their big day. When I’m not behind the camera, I’m spending time with my family! I have a beautiful little boy and one precious, fluffy dog. I also love reading books and taking weekend road trips with my friends and family.

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

I was so lucky in 2017 to book Abigail for my 2018 wedding. She is a delight to work with, she knows her stuff, and masterfully maintained the chaos that can come from wrangling up a huge family. It's been almost 6 years since I tied the knot, and I still feel so welcomed when she has her life update shoots she'll do regularly with her clients. If you want the photos done right and for an absolutely reasonable rate for the quality you will get, book with Abigail!

Her photos are so vibrant in color - one of our groomsmen is a professional photographer and he actually helped us select Nicole and The Still Life out of a variety of other potential photographers and we're so happy with how our photos turned out. Sneak peek came out the week of, and full set of photos about 6 weeks later. I especially appreciate that the full set included "duplicate" photos from various orientations (horizontal, vertical, etc) so there was plenty to choose from.

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.

Looking back at my pictures throughout the day, I could not have asked for a better team by my side! Sarah & Amber absolutely killed the photos and are two of the biggest hype women I have ever met! Throughout the entire day they were constantly there singing praises and doing anything to get genuine smiles. Andrea was the one I talked to throughout this whole process and she is absolutely amazing! She was very kind and patient with me throughout the process (I can be indecisive and really didn't fully know my editing style) and she made it work and went above and beyond with editing!

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

I had the pleasure of working with wedding photographer Clayton Chavez at Lux Everlasting, and I cannot express how thrilled I am with the entire experience. From the very beginning, Clayton listened attentively to our vision for the photos and made it a priority to understand the style and atmosphere we wanted to capture. Throughout the entire process, Clayton's ability to make us feel comfortable was exceptional. Being in front of the camera can be daunting, but Clayton's friendly and reassuring demeanor put us at ease. He effortlessly guided us through the poses and directed us in a way that felt natural, resulting in genuine and heartfelt moments captured on film. The images Clayton created are truly breathtaking. His talent and creativity shine through in each and every photograph. From capturing the raw emotions to the intricate details, Clayton's keen eye for composition and lighting brought out the beauty of our special day. We are beyond grateful for the stunning images that we will treasure for a lifetime. Working with Clayton was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. He was organized, punctual, and attentive to every detail. His professionalism and passion for his craft were evident in his dedication to delivering exceptional service.

We were fortunate enough to have Randell as our wedding photographer and videographer as I just stumbled to find him in a local wedding facebook group and without a doubt, he is THE BEST! From the moment we met him, it was evident that his professionalism and passion for his craft set him apart. His efficiency on the big day was truly remarkable. He seamlessly blended into the background, ensuring he captured every significant moment without being intrusive. His ability to organize group shots and direct us for those perfect candid moments showcased his experience and expertise. Now, let's talk about the photos - they are nothing short of spectacular! The only "problem" Randell presented us with was making every single photo look so incredible that it's nearly impossible to choose our favorites! As an artist myself, to me each image is a work of art, reflecting his keen eye for detail and a deep understanding of lighting and composition. Randell not only delivered on capturing the essence of our wedding day but exceeded our expectations. His creativity and skill turned ordinary moments into extraordinary memories. We are beyond grateful for his dedication and the timeless images he has given us to cherish for a lifetime. If you're in search of a wedding photographer who not only meets but exceeds expectations, look no further than Randell. He's not just a photographer; he's an artist who turns your special day into a visual masterpiece. Thank you, Randell, for making our wedding day truly unforgettable!

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!

Each wedding and couples are so unique and my work follows that. In my career I've photographed both big production weddings and also intimate DIY ones. I've photographed informal engagements and elopements/weddings in a desert in Chile, in the mountains of Zion, in a beach in Croatia, in an ancient church in Greece and in forests in Brazil. I work with all different budgets and needs from my brides. I'm a preferred vendor of Chicago First Lady Boat, so I do weddings on the boat during the summer.

I 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.

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!!

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!

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.

Capturing wedding days is my bliss. We may start as strangers but after , many "clients" consider me family and I take care of family. Forever Faithful Photos isn't a company full of random photographers learning their skills under a company name. Forever Faithful Photos is my "baby". I photograph your wedding day, I edit the photos and you have my promise that your happiness with your wedding photos is my top priority.

My husband and I had our reception in June 2023. Forever Faithful did our pictures and they turned out better than I could’ve hoped. Tiffany was so much fun to work with and got so many great shots. She has a great ability to get the perfect candid shot. She had us laughing the whole time. I so grateful we chose her to be our photographer!

Whether photographing parties or shooting short films, it is my goal as a professional artist, to capture those emotions, and present beautiful memories that will last forever.

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.

I cannot recommend Kate enough! From the start she did an amazing job with our engagement photos. The photos were absolutely beautiful and even better than I could have imagined. She was able to help us pose without it feeling forced and helped us look natural. Leading up to the wedding she was a huge help. I had many questions and she was always there to help problem solve. On the wedding we had a goal of getting all of our photos done before the ceremony. Kate did a fantastic job of prioritizing the shots we wanted to ensure we made it to cocktail hour which was the one thing I wanted. Not only did we make it to cocktail hour, but we were able to get everything done all thanks to Kate! Our photos were absolutely beautiful and we will cherish them forever! She did a fabulous job capturing the joy from our day. I will be recommending Kate to everyone I know!

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!

From intimate glances to exuberant celebrations, I aim to freeze every moment in a frame of everlasting beauty.

Awarded Best of Zola
I could not have dreamt up a better photographer for our wedding than Taber Lacie... I don't even know where to begin. Booking her was easily the best decision we made of all our vendor choices. Her talent is just through the roof. There are certainly plenty of photographers out there who are talented and it can be tough to narrow down, but what I think separates Taber from the pack is how, in addition to being uniquely talented and passionate about her work, she is also affordable, incredibly fun to be around, and will stick around for the ENTIRE day and night. The importance of having a photographer who is laid-back, directive (in an enjoyable and super helpful way!), hilarious, and overall a joy to have with you is so underrated; it can really make or break your mood for the day since they're there, ideally, throughout every part of your day. In terms of her rates, I truly believe she could charge double what she does and still be worth every penny. The fact that she included a free engagement photo session (in part to help you ensure it's a good fit) and stayed through the reception was such a gift. That said, if I had to pinpoint one aspect of what makes Taber so special and why I would recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer is that she tailors her photographs to your preferences and taste. We are a huge fan of dancing photos, for example, and holy cow did she come through. She sends out a questionnaire before the big day and its purposefully lengthy so that she can be thorough and give you all exactly what you're looking for. Even if our photos aren't your taste, I highly recommend browsing her site, as her range is as remarkable as is the quality of her photographs. In short, if you book Taber, I am confident she will exceed your expectations just as she exceeded ours.

These prompts will help you feel comfortable and also help create candid images. Check out my website for more info :)
