We could not have asked for a better team to capture our day! Visi studio set everyone at ease as soon as they arrived, and knew exactly how to direct us to get warm, genuine footage. Not only did they help keep us on schedule and ensure we got all of the shots that we wanted, everyone had so much fun working with them. The final product blew my husband and me away - we were so impressed with the full-length video as well as the Highlights. It captured the fun, excitement, and romanticism of the day better than we could have hoped for. We are so happy we made the investment to work with VISI STUDIO, it was worth every penny!

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.

We have worked with Thomas multiple times now. He photographed our engagement, our wedding, and our maternity shoot and we couldn't be more happy with his work! The photos are gorgeous, high quality, and do such a phenomenal job of capturing these special moments in our lives. Picking the right photographer is a huge choice, and I cannot recommend Thomas enough!

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
Anders hopped on board to shoot our elopement just a couple days before the event. In the short time leading up we had a quick intro call to say hello, chat expectations, and plan for the shoot. During the ceremony he managed to get shots of our rings and other key moments without distraction - was genuinely surprised looking at the gallery to see what he'd been able to capture without us even realizing on the day! Throughout the shoot he worked with us to capture he sweet moments and the silly ones -- the most fun I've had getting my picture taken. Friends and family who have seen the photos since have nothing but rave reviews, and so do we. An appreciated bonus - print ordering and gallery are well organized and easy to navigate. 12/10 would absolutely work with Anders again.

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
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.

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.

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 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 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!

  • Starts at $5,000

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.

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!!

  • Starts at $1,350

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.

Warrenville, IL
  • Photojournalistic style

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!

Villa Park, IL
  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $2,199

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

From the start, Andrew and his team were amazing! Between planning the engagement photo shoot and the wedding day he was spot on! He had awesome ideas for a couple who doesn’t think they are photogenic. Our pictures came out beautiful and had such a quick turnaround time, we recommend Xcitephoto to the moon and back!

Ev Photography Chicago

Naperville, IL

    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 are just an absolute gem of a duo. Our wedding date was on 06.03.23. They shot both engagement and wedding day. We have been connected with them through families and friend's weddings they've done. When it came to our day, there was no doubt who we were going to reach out to. 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. You want someone like Marc and Mindy on that day--folks who will take care of you, keep you calm, and keep you having fun! They certainly know how to bring your vision to life. We will cherish the gift they have given us for a lifetime. We do not give this recommendation lightly. We understand how important photos are...you want Marc and Mindy on your side.

For my ninth birthday I received my first camera. GAME CHANGER. Boy was it fun to step on the other side of the camera. I was unstoppable, never letting my camera leave my side. 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.

    Clayton was one of the best wedding decisions we made! He was very fun to work with, made us feel comfortable, and he truly delivered a wonderful product. We absolutely love the photos we’ve seen so far. We were married 11/18, and our preview photos were delivered so quickly, and they are gorgeous! He captured the mood and feel of the day so perfectly, and the candid shots of my friends and family will be cherished by so many of us. All of our wedding guests raved about Clayton later. He got to know our guests, and blended right into our party! He has a very unique, cinematic/aesthetic style, and it matched perfectly with what we wanted. Neither of us had felt photogenic before, but Clayton captured some of the most flattering photos of us. Don’t think twice about booking him!

    Hi, I’m Isaac. In my world, light is everything. The cool ambient hues at dawn, hinting at what the day may bring. Golden sun rays catching particles through a tree as friends gathers to celebrate. A Cotton candy sunset peppered by patio string-lights as a DJ plays my favorite song. We all have timeless memories logged in our minds. For me, they are based in a language of light. As a wedding photographer, this deep connection to special lighting helps me produce dynamic visual stories of romance, personality and beauty.

    Isaac and his team were incredible to work with. He came highly recommended from a friend of ours who got married a few years ago and we were really pleased to be introduced. After seeing his work, we were sure we wanted to work with him. The wedding was in San Francisco and it was a real pleasure to have Isaac there on our day, and the photos look amazing. There are so many fun and gorgeous moments captured, we are very thankful for the skilled photos. The lighting is phenomenal.

Kirst's eye for detail is truly astonishing, and her technical expertise is matched only by the genuine joy she brings to her work. The fall beauty of Vermont served as a stunning backdrop, and Kirst perfectly captured the essence of the season in each photograph. Her ability to adapt to the unpredictable weather was particularly noteworthy; she not only handled it with professionalism but also helped to calm our nerves during those uncertain moments. From our engagement session to our wedding day, Kirst proved to be not only a highly skilled professional but also a delight to work with. We wholeheartedly recommend Kirst to anyone seeking not just a photographer, but a true artist who can turn moments into timeless treasures.

Besides the day itself, her images are absolutely gorgeous! Wonderful minimalist editing, and beautiful, artistic angles shot throughout the day helped capture perfect, magazine-worthy photos.

    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 was absolutely amazing to work with from our engagement session to our big day! Our engagement shoot was supposed to be on a day when it rained and she was so flexible to change our session to another day. She helped guide us on what to do/what poses to do. She was always prompt in responding and just the sweetest, nicest person to work with. On our wedding day, I ended up getting a little overheated and Michelle & her husband were so sweet and made sure I had a moment to sit down and literally fanned me with a magazine so I could cool off. On a day when so much was going on, it meant so much to me that they made sure I was okay and comfortable. I can’t say enough great things about our photos- they turned out even better than I could’ve imagined. I’m obsessed with our wedding photos and will cherish them forever. Thank you so so much Michelle!!

    We had a very small wedding ceremony due to COVID and we hired Andrew to capture the entire day for us. This included shots of us getting ready, a photo shoot of both of us before the ceremony, the ceremony itself and a small dinner afterwards. We could not have been happier with Andrew's professionalism and his ability to put us at ease. He let us make suggestions and offered his own ideas of shots to take and was able to take charge and slip into the background easily. During the dinner afterwards, we asked him to sit down and join us and he fit right in with our party! We were very happy with the quality and variety of the photos and would absolutely recommend him to all of our friends!

    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!!
