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

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

Awarded Best of Zola
John was an amazing photographer! He was always communicating with us before and during the wedding. He was always available to talk which for a nervous bride helped a lot. During the wedding, he was very professional. He made sure we got the shots we wanted but respected our parents when they asked for extra shots. He came up with shots we never thought of that turned out to be our favorites! Hire John for all your special functions! I know we will be reaching out again to him.

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!

Awarded Best of Zola
Michelle is fabulous and super detail-oriented. I was so impressed with the amount of preparation she put in to make sure it was a great experience for us. Her perfectionisn is wonderful and she lived up to every expectation. We couldn't have been happier with the results. We can't thank her enough for such gorgeous pictures and such an easy, carefree experience <3

Bridgette Benson Photography
Lockport, IL
  • Classic style

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.

Hey there! If we’re going to be friends, you should know that I'm goofy, adventurous, a shameless cat mom, and I don’t like chocolate (weird right?!). I graduated from Bradley University in 2018 and launched Moira Nolan Photography, specializing in wedding and engagement photography in 2019. Now here I am, a capturer of laughs, kisses, & all things love and it brings me so much joy! I mainly serve the Chicago and the Chicago Suburbs but I love to travel! Especially since it is a goal of mine to visit all 50 states.

We reached out to Moira for our engagement and wedding photos and couldn’t be happier that we did! Moira is great in all regards. She listened to what we had in mind for our pictures (more natural feel) and added her knowledge of capturing great shots. She helped us feel at ease in front of the camera and guided us as needed. Every picture turned out beautiful. Choosing our favorites was nearly impossible and our friends and family were blown away when viewing the photos. We will definitely use Moira again for future photos and recommend her whole-heartedly to anyone!

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.

While the quality of Alana's work speaks for itself, from a venue perspective, she was a delight to work with.

From the moment we connected with this amazing duo, we knew it was meant to be. Nicole and Michael showed us the perfect amount of professionalism mixed with the ability to be our friends (even though we did not know each other at all), which made all the difference. We felt extremely comfortable with them during all of the steps leading up to the wedding, which in turn, made our actual wedding day that much more enjoyable. They knew we had a "vision" for our big day that we did not want to compromise, and they lived up to it in ways we could not imagine. It's almost been a year since we said "til death do us part" and we are STILL getting compliments on all of the pictures and the video! I can say that we will be forever grateful to have such an amazing day captured by the best there is.

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 a God send. She made my day feel so special she was so professional and friendly! She made sure to capture a lot of candid moments for us and the poses she suggested didn’t feel awkward or forced. The angles, the editing and the sheer amount of photos shows how much she made my day a priority. Thank you again!

Kankakee, IL
  • Classic style

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!

Hi! I’m Connie! First of all congrats!🍾 ✨Thank you for visiting my profile and considering me as your photographer! I am so excited for your big day! Here are some things you might wanna know! I’m not typical photog- I don’t just arrive on your day, leave after few hours, and deliver few months later! I’m there for all the moments leading to the big day! You can hit me up any time- we can brainstorm all the ideas, timelines, all the tiniest details! I am a fan of Pinterest vision boards, sending each other tons of messages and be open about EVERYTHING! This is your day! Let’s make it all about YOU!

Connie was so sweet to work with and the images she captured brought us to tears. We flew to Chicago from CA to elope on Leap Day in City Hall and it was insanely busy! Connie arrived on time and we were running late. Due to the volume of couples waiting to get married, we waited 75 minutes to be finally called back. Connie took detail photos of us without us even noticing while we waited. She also had the idea to record our ceremony and it’s a video I treasure. She thankfully had some flexibility in her schedule to allow us to add additional time to get the shots we wanted since most of our scheduled time was taken up by waiting to be called. We loved the movement in her photos, capturing us throughout the city, and let us just bask in the newlywed bliss after the anticipation of waiting all morning. She captured the small smiles and looks between us and let us just be us, something we wanted most for our elopement. She gave us some direction but mostly let us move naturally, so if you feel uncomfortable in front of the camera, take a shot of Malört and loosen up! We would love to work with Connie again and so glad we chose her for our experience. But if you’re booking on a special date, make sure you give yourselves plenty of time!

What can I say about OLAS? Thanks to them doing a phenomenal job capturing (both videography and photography) the best day of my life to-date, I will get to relive my the joy of my wedding. From day one the team was very communicative, transparent and easy going. Hiring OLAS was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planing efforts. I did my due diligence when researching photographers and have absolutely no regrets. We also loved our photographer (Alyssa) and had her shoot both our engagement and wedding photos. She did a fabulous job of capturing the love we have for each other as well as our 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!

Abigail was so easy and fun to work with! Our engagement pictures were quick and easy (which my husband appreciated), but also we got a ton of high quality pictures back.

We got our previews and final pictures back so quikcly, which we really appreciated. I can not recommend Abigail Saalfrank Photography enough!

We had a COVID wedding at City Hall in February in Chicago. While we may have compromised on a thing or two, what did not feel like a compromise at all was our wedding photographs. I had no idea our small low-key wedding could look so incredibly beautiful. The photos ooze so much refinement and class. Mariah elevated our little COVID wedding and made it look like a really grand time. Working with Mariah felt like a true collaboration. She was so keen on understanding our vision and giving us exactly what we wanted. She even captured a very sentimental moment with me wearing my mother’s jewelry and honoring her despite her physical absence. She collaborated effortlessly with our friends and family on the actual day. As an introvert I was so nervous about wedding photography, thought I would just have to grin and bear it, but she made the whole process so easy, fun and effortless – it was like hanging out with a friend. We picked her because of her aesthetic style and her keen eye for detail. Our wedding photos did not disappoint one bit! Seriously cannot tell you how many people complimented the photos. Do not think twice about booking her – she is an absolute genius and a gem!!!

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!

Elliot was a superstar on the day of our wedding! We didn’t have the budget for a wedding planner so my wife and I were the ones calling all the shots that day. We’d done just about everything… but the shot list. But Elliot was CLUTCH! He already had an idea of our schedule and so he just jumped in and began taking photos. He made sure to ask us about key moments we wanted prioritized throughout the day, and what we got back were incredible. He has an awesome attention for detail and was so thoughtful that when we got our photos back we saw so many things that we didn’t even remember or think of or ask for that we are so glad he captured. He was also SUPER efficient! We took photos so quickly and he was really helpful in orchestrating our wedding party. Once we finished group photos he stole us away for couples shots and it was so easy to just be ourselves and enjoy our first few moments as newly weds. He actually made our day much less stressful all while capturing us in our element. OH, and I can’t forget to mention the fact that he also took video footage, some with a drone that he was able to give us same day fully edited. That was a totally unexpected but very lovely surprise. We were also provided a fuller edited video of moments from throughout the whole day. We feel so grateful and lucky to have worked with Elliot and his team for our wedding!

Whether it's engagement photos, wedding photography, or videography, let me assure you that Amative Creative is your best choice! As a bride, planning a wedding can be incredibly stressful. I have never met a more passionate owner than Andrea, who genuinely cares and appreciates her clients and their needs. She is willing to work with you and listen to you. She doesn't make you feel like she knows better or that what you say isn't valuable. I cannot express how many vendors want to dictate how things should be and don't listen to your concerns.

I have been a photographer for 8 years. Throughout my time as a photographer I’ve captured clothing, models, and memories. I shifted from corporate shootings to families and weddings because it gave me this warm fuzzy feeling when I edited my couples and families photos. Don’t be afraid to reach out to me and ask about my photography style, my editing style, or my favorite restaurant! I highly recommend scheduling a free consulting session!

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!

We had the pleasure of working with Hanna for our family photos, and the experience was nothing short of amazing!

Not only is Hanna incredibly easy to work with, but her sense of humor added an extra layer of joy to the whole process. It felt like we were capturing genuine moments rather than staged poses, and that authenticity truly shines through in the final photos. One thing that stood out was the speed at which we received a preview of the images. Hanna's efficiency is unmatched, providing us with a sneak peek that exceeded our expectations. And to top it off, we had a complete gallery to explore in less than a month—a remarkably quick turnaround that demonstrated her commitment to delivering exceptional service.

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!!

I booked Sarah for our intimate wedding in April, and I couldn't be happier with the results.

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!

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.

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!

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

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!

Let's create wedding images with real emotion, story, and intention to them. I know being in front of the camera can be awkward. That's why I choose not to pose couples, but instead prompt you to do something like "take off your shoes and run across the field" or " get inside the car and kiss everywhere except the lips". These prompts will help you feel comfortable and also help create candid images. Check out my website for more info :)

Enter The Photo Collective: I've assembled a team of skilled associates who share my passion. We're not just photographers. We’ve been in the trenches and we know this business. We will be there to shepard you through the day. FYI, I don't list availability on our calendar here as we have 10 photographers and typically have talent available. Send us a message to inquire, thanks! :)

We worked with Jeremy and could not have been happier. He is so easy to work with, and he truly listens. He brings experience and a creative eye to the planning process. We hadn't worked with a professional photographer before, so we leaned on him to share many ideas to ensure we'd like the photos that are now on our wall :) Jeremy recommended poses, places, and who should be in what shot. We have big families, so it was wonderful to have a guide and confidence we'd get all the photos we needed and some fun ones we never would have thought to ask for. He's very easygoing and funny. We'll definitely be working with Jeremy again.
