Greetings! I’m Phil, a passionate and creative photographer based in the vibrant city of Chicago. With a lens as my canvas, I specialize in capturing the essence of moments that tell unique stories. From the picturesque lakeside to the heart of the city, I specialize in crafting timeless engagement and wedding photos that reflect the love and joy of couples saying, "will you marry me?" and "I do" in Chicago. Chicago’s skyline is a masterpiece, and I take pride in capturing its grandeur. My architectural photography brings out the unique character of each building, from historic landmarks to modern skyscrapers.

Phil did an AMAZING job photographing our wedding. He strategized with us in the weeks before to plan which shots would be the most meaningful. And the day of the wedding he was the most patient accommodating and kindhearted photographer you could wish for. We are SO happy with how the photos turned out and would hire him again in a heartbeat. Thank you Phil!

I'm Courtney! I care not only about providing you with sharp, authentic and colorful images on your wedding day, but helping you to be fully present on your wedding day so you remember all the big and little moments.

Courtney is everything you could want in a photographer. Photography was a top priority for my wedding and I'm so thankful I went with Expedition Joy. My photos are the exact "timeless, bright and airy (without being washed out)" that I dreamed of. She made us feel super comfortable, took feedback and let us request shots, quickly turned around our engagement session & wedding sneak peaks, and even let us sneak a shot back within 24 hours (insane!!!!). Photos are so important and you should book someone you can trust to give you the gift of those memories in the way you you want and envision them. Courtney did just that for us!! 10/10.

I'm Chrissy and I'm a documentary wedding photographer with 10+ years of experience who fully believes that your life deserves to be documented truthfully. My focus at your wedding isn't to steal you away from your family and friends for hours to make "art," but to empathically capture the moments and relationships present at your wedding. Your wedding photos are the single most important wedding investment you'll make. After the day is done and over, they will be what tethers you to your memories of your day. They will be the heirlooms you'll pass down to your grandchildren to hang on walls and sit on bedsides for generations to come.

We loved Chrissy! She was fun and easy to work with, and I loved that she provided color and black/white photos. She did everything on our list, and listened to our ideas as well. Nothing felt forced or over-posed, but she was great at guiding next moves when needed. Will definitely use again for future photos.

With the pressure gone, you can truly enjoy your big day. Relax and rest assured that all the emotional and moments will be documented with unmatched quality.

Ken Y could not have been a better choice as our lead photographer and we can't wait to work with him at our wedding in September. His communication, his candor, his creativity, his commitment -- it was all aligned with our vision and our biggest hopes. Honestly, it was way more fun and carefree than either of us imagined possible and that's the best feeling. We were both smiling hours later; he lit us up. OLAS has a whole has been a breath of fresh air and such a delight to work with. We know we made the right choice and yesterday really proved it. So grateful to have found such a wonderful team!

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!

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.

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.

Hiring Chelcie for my wedding was one of the best decisions we made! Not only did she do a beautiful job, but she made it so stress free! Before the big day there was plenty of communication. She collected a full list of must get photos, biggest moments to capture, and day of timeline. The absolute best thing she did during our wedding was sneak my husband and I away during the reception for some private golden hour photos. They came out so good and I'm so thankful she was on top of it to make sure I didn't miss anything. On top of the great photos, when I got the finished photos in the mail, she also sent a hand written note and a framed photo of her favorite picture of us from that day. It hangs on my wall now for us to see every day. It was just made the whole experience that much more personal! 10 out of 10! I recommend her to everyone I know.

Hey, Im Grant. I'm a Madison, WI based wedding photographer who specializes in a documentary approach using both film and digital photography. If you want your wedding gallery to be uniquely yours (vs a Pinterest shotlist), then I'm your guy.

Choosing the right photographer was one of the more important decisions for our wedding, and we dedicated considerable time to making the right choice. Looking back after our wedding, I can say that we made the best decision. Working with Grant was truly a fantastic experience. From the moment we connected, he seamlessly guided us through the entire process, making us feel at ease and ensuring our day was beautifully captured. He made the day a breeze, capturing every special moment while making us feel totally relaxed. His ability to blend into the day effortlessly while capturing important moments was impressive. Some of the most cherished shots were taken without us even realizing he was there, yet each picture vividly brings back the emotions we felt at that moment. His documentary style? It's our jam! No stiff poses- just real, authentic shots that tell our story. Also, his skill in film photography added an incredible depth to the images, preserving the essence of our day in timeless frames. I also want to point out how easy communication was/is with him. Grant is lightning-fast with responses! So friendly and approachable too. When so many details of a wedding can be stressful, it was SO nice knowing we didn’t have to worry at all about our photography. If you're after a wedding photographer, Grant has the skills, the vibe, and the passion. Highly recommend!

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

Arleigh and her team are beyond amazing! It’s as if your best friend is behind the camera and helping you every moment. Arleigh and Jordan went so far and above what I could have ever imagined. They jumped in with whatever last minute things needed assistance and made my family feel so at ease. Their love for what they do and ease with everyone comes through without a doubt. I didn’t expect to find such an amazing person to capture all the little moments in our lives, but I not only found that, but someone I plan to keep as friend as well!

Hi! I'm Madison, a Nebraska based Wedding + Traveling Photographer documenting the side of you that doesn't feel seen, while capturing the moments that typically go unnoticed. My promise is to make you feel the best version of yourself and capture you in a way your spouse sees you.

I call this our lucky day because — We were engaged early December. A few weeks later we decided we wanted to elope. To make the most romantic, intimate, promise of our lives - our whole lives. The next day I found Madison’s reel on Instagram offering free elopement coverage in return for paid travel. It was our lucky day! Working with Madison was a happy adventure! From the beginning she was kind and a clear communicator. In the 3 short months we had to plan, she was incredibly helpful! She really felt like a friend through the whole process! And the pictures!!! (insert crying emoji) They were so beautiful and captured what we wanted. She saw our vision!! We’re definitely going to use her for our reception next year. (insert heart emoji)

Day of the Wedding, she was ontime, kept us and our entire family on schedule. She was direct with us to help us get the best photos, which helped us capture more moments throughout Lincoln Park and our reception venue. She never wasted a moment to snap photos of our guests and our venue. Very experienced, knows what she is doing and made it effortless after to view photos, family is able to order right from her website directly, and sends you a preview within 48 hours, and for us, it was same day!

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!

He gave us time to think things through, and we never felt pressured or rushed. On the day of the wedding, he was so easy and fun to work with. He sent us a small film trailer of the wedding the day after, which was so awesome to have right away! We recently got back our full edited films, and they are better than we could have hoped - super well edited, amazing crisp quality, and they really honor the mood and feeling of the whole night.

I've been capturing weddings since 2009. My style is classic/true to color and my approach is a mix of directive (for posed parts of the day) and candid. Overall, I blend into the background as much as possible when it's appropriate, capturing things as they happen and I help you create portraits with gentle direction and humor where necessary. It is your day. let’s work together to make your photos the best record of your memories they can be! I look forward to working with you!

As a small boy, I would sit for hours watching my mother hand-color portraits for a local photographer, during the cold winter months, by a fire in our family room. From there I began taking my own pictures with my first box camera. Fast forward to a restless twenty-something working as a microbiologist, taking weddings and portraits on weekends. Eventually I graduated college with an M.A. in Photography and started out in Chicago, assisting numerous photographers, shooting everything from oranges to weddings. I have been fortunate to have worked all over the world. Photography is more than a job, it’s an avocation, a passion, it's what I do.

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

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

Hey there! Kataryna here. Thanks for checking out my work. I never thought that I would have the opportunity to meet you and everyone else that I have throughout my photography journey. I started photography in high school and fell in love with all that my camera and I could do. In my college years at the University of Iowa, I was able to strengthen my photography skills by taking an internship with a wedding company. Shortly after graduation, I moved back to the Chicago suburbs and began growing my business. A few years later, and I am extremely grateful for everything I have been able to accomplish. ​

Kat is truly amazing. She is sweet, professional, personable, and a wonderful photographer. She has a way of making awkwardness disappear and has an incredible eye for photography. We had such an absolute blast with her and the photos are incredible so far!!

I'm a portrait and wedding photographer located in Madison, Wisconsin. I've received a Bachelor's degree in Photography from Olivet Nazarene University in 2013. I have captured weddings and engagements around the country. I'm passionate about storytelling and documenting wedding couples in a fresh, new way. I enjoy spending my free time with my family, sipping coffee, visiting art galleries, taking roadtrips, listening to live music, and exploring new cities.

My husband and I were lucky to use Nick as our photographer for our wedding in March 2023. Nick reached out to us beforehand to ask detailed questions to get know us as a couple and to understand what kind of pictures we were looking for. The day of our wedding he was very well prepared and created a very calm environment that helped bring out the best in us. When we received our pictures back it was everything we wanted plus more. He did an excellent job and captured what we envisioned perfectly. There were many candid pictures of not only us but our family and friends that we’ll cherish forever. We are planning to keep using Nick in the future as our family grows.
