Jana Blue Photography (Photo + Film)

5.0

Wheaton, IL
  • Classic style
  • Starts at $2,800
  • Serves Skokie, IL

My name is Jana Blue and I've been photographing weddings for 10 years. I'm consistent not in a trend of photos or style, but emotions. Each wedding and couples are so unique and my work follows that. In my career I've photographed both big production weddings and also intimate DIY ones. I've photographed informal engagements and elopements/weddings in a desert in Chile, in the mountains of Zion, in a beach in Croatia, in an ancient church in Greece and in forests in Brazil. I work with all different budgets and needs from my brides. I'm a preferred vendor of Chicago First Lady Boat, so I do weddings on the boat during the summer.

From start to finish, Jana made our wedding day in Chicago feel so special and unique. My partner and I spent 3 hours with Jana, who so graciously accommodated our numerous photo locations across Chicago in such a beautiful way! We felt very taken care of by Jana and her team and cannot recommend her enough. Not only does she listen to her couples, she also provides confidence and mastery which makes you feel like getting your photos taken should be part of your everyday life. Thank you Jana - we will hold on to these photos dearly forever! Maria and De'Sean

Roman Lorek Photography

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

I am a bilingual (Polish, English) Chicago based wedding photographer who enjoys traveling and music. I like to take a documentary approach to photography. Keeping posing to a minimum and capturing natural moments of your big day. I am a perfect photographer for a couple that believes the natural moments mean more than posed photographs.

I had the privilege of working with Roman at a wedding a few years ago. I was hired as a DJ and he reached out to me prior to the event to introduce himself. I looked into his work and was astounded by his attention to detail. He really has a knack for capturing the moment in photo

Kate Scott Photography

Chicago, IL
  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $3,000

My name is Kate Scott Daly, and I can't wait to meet you! I'm a Chicago native and have been a professional photographer for nearly a decade. I am obsessed with capturing the perfect moment that will make you gasp and say "Oh my god, this is amazing!" Being a queer woman, it is so important to me that you feel safe, loved, and beautiful every step of the way. If you're looking for someone you can relax with and just be yourself, you've found me! Let's face it: it can be awkward being in front of a camera. Even I feel nervous sometimes! I understand that anxiety and will do everything I can to make you feel fabulous!

I contacted Kate sometime in November to take photos of my proposal to my then-girlfriend, Morgan. Kate was super easy to work with from the start. She listened to my ideas and gave great input to help me nail down my plan. When the day came, she got the candid photos seamlessly and they turned out great. She was so enthusiastic and happy and it made the shoot a fun time. All of our friends and family love how the final album turned out. I would definitely keep Kate at the top of my list for any future photography needs.

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!

Awarded Best of Zola
When we were first planning our wedding, my wife and I weren't sure whether or not we were going to have a videographer. We figured photos would capture the moments and event, but about a month beforehand, both of our parents urged us to record the day on video. Andrew was a godsend! He was super responsive and professional, helped us craft our vision for the teaser video as well as the longer feature, and was a notably awesome teammate to our photographer (so cool seeing them work together strategically after just meeting!). Andrew went above and beyond and recorded a lot of candid moments and all of our friends' speeches on the Friday before the wedding, which was really important to us. We can't imagine having NOT had Andrew as our videographer now, and we often smile and cry when we watch our full length video of our big day. If you choose to work with Andrew, you'll be happy you did.

Wendy was such a joy to have photographing our special day! She was so incredibly sweet, funny, accommodating, and kind. She rolled with ALL the little hiccups, the drama, and the emotions that will inevitably happen on your wedding day! She made all of those little moments less stressful with her kind smile and lightheartedness. The photographs she took were absolutely stunning, and so many people have told us so. She improvised at all the right times, and made me feel so at ease the entire day. She executed exactly what we wanted, came prepared with a list of photos I’d mentioned to her prior, and made sure to remind me of the photo inspiration I sent to her. She is artistic, adventurous, and professional, all at the same time. Between the caterers, the venue, the DJ, and every vendor in between, we felt that Wendy was worth every penny.

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.

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.

We booked Sam for our elopement at City Hall in October and cannot say enough wonderful things about working with him! From the very beginning, he was organized and communicative and put us totally at ease. The day of our marriage ceremony, he was the absolute best third wheel, making the day feel special by hyping us up and also disappearing into the background so that we could have some special moments that felt more private. Neither my husband or I had ever done a formal photoshoot before but we both felt so comfortable with Sam that it wasn't awkward. And most importantly, the end product was phenomenal. Sam had edited (and shared with us!) more than half the gallery by the end of the day. The photos are gorgeous (the colors, the lighting, the framing of the shots) and perfectly capture our special day. We feel so seen. 10/10 would book again!

Our wedding photos are truly stunning and are hung up throughout the house. She will be our go to photographer for all future needs! Thanks again Chelsea!

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.

Kim is very easy to work with she made it very relaxed and easy to take photos with her. I am someone who doesn’t like attention on me and has social anxiety and she helped me to feel relaxed while taking the photos. She didn’t just take beautiful photos for us but she made the experience fun and memorable for us as well. I would definitely recommend Kim for photos.

Though every shoot holds something unique, it takes a lot to catch me off guard after nearly a decade in business. I pride myself on my ability to quickly connect with my clients, making them feel comfortable, cared for, and confident that they look great. Not every event I’m at goes exactly according to plan and I know how to roll with the punches. Being a helpful and calming presence in the midst of your wedding is second nature to me. Basically, I try to treat people how I want to be treated: with fairness and understanding!

He was able to provide insightful suggestions to make sure the day was as stress-free as possible. Whether he was photographing us as we got ready or rallying our big families into a a single shot after the ceremony, Zach worked seamlessly. He's professional and funny and knows how to get the shots he needs. He makes the whole operation look effortless. Only 4 DAYS AFTER the wedding, we received all our photos edited and ready to share!

Awarded Best of Zola
1. Kyle is a true professional - A lot of photographers are great at taking photos but bad a business (Project management, sending you reminders, dealing with difficult family members, coordinating with other vendors, etc.). Kyle has a background in business and I can tell. Feels like I would have him on a consulting project. He works on timelines with you. He gives you firm deadlines, good client management skills. 2. Kyle is good at taking photos - Yup, simple but he takes great photos. I won't get into the weeds but he definitely has some dark and moody ones but some with lighter tones. He does your traditional family portraits, fun photos on the dance floor, but he'll mix in some photojournalistic ones and ones you would expect in a magazine. He was quick to edit and send us photos after the wedding. We didn't have to wait too long. 3. Kyle is fun to work with, he's reliable. He made my wife feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the process. That's huge. It's your wedding day and you want to trust someone. Someone like Kyle. 4. He serves as more than a partner throughout the day and months leading up to the wedding than just a photographer. There is a reason he charges a bit more than some other photographers 5. Personality-wise he was a great medium and I liked it. He's not too bold that he takes over the wedding and distracts from your big day, but he's bold enough to tell people what to do and get the right shots he needs. 6. I would recommend him!

We brought along our dog for our engagement photos, and Cristina never batted an eye during his less-than-cooperative moments. She made the engagement photo session a complete breeze and so much fun from start to finish. Her partner, Constantin, joined for the wedding day, and they made the most incredible photography duo. They captured all the important moments and ensured that we got every last photo we wanted. They also handled corralling everyone for large family photos in an extremely timely and orderly fashion.

From the moment we met Allie, we knew something about her was so special. My husband and I first met Allie when we took our engagement photos and after running around and laughing with her, we couldn’t stop talking about how much FUN we had. Any time I’ve spent with Allie or even talking to her have easily become my some of my favorite memories from this special season of life. During the time leading up to the wedding she would occasionally send me sweet voice notes or messages as little reminders of her thinking about me and Cameron and praying for us as we got closer and closer to our wedding day. By the time our wedding rolled around, I genuinely just felt like Cameron and I were hanging out with one of our dearest friends on our wedding day and she just happened to be taking photos of us. Allie has a magical way of capturing moments as if she’s seeing them from your own eyes. Each photo she took feels like I’m seeing my own memories of our beautiful day come to life and that is absolutely priceless. I will always treasure my sweet Allie and these photos that we will cherish our whole lives!

I began my career as a photojournalist working for newspapers and magazines documenting current events, sports and pop culture. Creating meaningful images is at the heart of being a photojournalist and it's this mentality that I bring to my wedding photography. I work to create timeless images that truly tell the story of one of the most important days of your life.

From day one, Peter made us feel relaxed and it was so easy working with him. The engagement photos session was so much fun, he had great ideas for photos, and we laughed a lot. Besides getting great photos from this session, it allowed us to get to know Peter more (and vice versa) and feel more comfortable together before the wedding. We couldn't wait for the wedding day to hang out more! Peter and his team took amazing photos on our wedding day and are a joy to be around. They truly added so much to our entire wedding day team. We miss working with Peter on a daily basis - it was such a pleasure! I highly recommend Peter for your wedding!

I made a conscious decision early on in my career that I wanted to LOVE what I do and do what I love. With a bachelor’s degree in graphic design and photography you could say I’m one of the few that stuck with my major and still love it to this day. I’m a helpless romantic, a wife, a mother, a worldwide traveler a marathon runner and a wedding photographer. Deciding who will bring your memories to life is one of your most important ones. When the whirlwind and excitement of the day is over, beautifully captured images will be what help you revisit the romance, emotion and spirit of all of those little moments.

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

I'm just a suburban girl who decided to turn her dreams into a reality. I'm all about building relationships and connections. After all, that's what wedding photography is all about. I do this job every weekend because I'm one of those people that is obsessed with pictures. Not just for a living, but for myself. I understand the value in photography. I do this for people who are just like me. For the ones who cherish those photos hanging on the walls. The photos still in that purple glitter album from 2002 of you and your friends in Limited Too. Those memories are all we have from the anchors that built us. Photos are proof that we have lived

Awarded Best of Zola
I work in the corporate client service industry, so when it came to my vendor team, I had incredibly high standards as I understand what quality client service looks like. Lauryn exceeded every expectation I had by a mile. In my 18 months of working with her, her communication was always timely (typically 24 hrs) and highly effective. Before I had signed a contract, she helped me build a high-level timeline for the wedding, got to know what was important to me and answered my (many) questions. She reconfirmed details with me throughout the process to ensure we were always on the same page, knew my shot list front to back, and gave me multiple status updates throughout wedding day so I would know that she was capturing everything I had requested. We had many group formal shots which she powered through with no issue during cocktail hour (which is a feat in itself). As a type A bride, she was a dream come true to work with. Her personality was incredible - she kept us so comfortable, happy and laughing throughout the day. My husband and I are not at all photogenic people naturally, but after working with Lauryn at our engagement shoot, I had no concerns that we would look unnatural on our wedding day, which resulted in a no-stress, all fun wedding day. This was my #1 concern going into the wedding process, so to not pay it a thought on the wedding day exemplifies the total confidence that Lauryn inspires in her couples. On the wedding day she took complete charge of the day in the best way possible. The remainder of my vendor team was on the less experienced side so Lauryn was the one doing the heavy lifting of keeping us on schedule, which she did flawlessly. This was also her first time working at my venue, so I was able to see her keen eye for beauty in action, picking out various locations for our photos. Each photo and location turned out better than the next even though she didn't have a pre-existing shot location list to turn to which really speaks to her eye for turning the ordinary into extraordinary. Our galleries for the engagement shoot & wedding were turned around faster than I had known was humanly possible with no sacrifice on quality to meet those tight timelines. (Our engagement photos came the next day and our wedding gallery was delivered within two weeks, which I believe are her general turnaround times depending on what time of year it is). One final note on something I had not seen highlighted in other reviews. Normally I think that guest and reception dancing photos are nice to have but generally aren't super memorable. This is NOT at all how Lauryn's photos were. Each photo of the guests is something that they could frame in their own homes despite them not being the main focus of the day. Lauryn took the care to photograph as many couples as possible during the Anniversary Dance, so now they have beautiful keepsakes celebrating their own marriages, not only mine. Overall, Lauryn managed to capture the spirit of the day from start to finish, including the little touches I worked so tirelessly on. She truly thinks of everything, gives the wedding day her all, and is worth every single penny of her investment cost and honestly so much more. I will scream a recommendation for her from the rooftops to every couple I know who gets engaged going forward (especially if you are a Swiftie).

I truly couldn’t have asked for a better photographer on our wedding day. She had done my graduation pictures, so I wanted to have her do our wedding pictures due to how amazing the grad pictures came out. She is extremely proactive - she had us meet 2 times before the wedding in order to go over details and background on my husband and I. I could truly see that she genuinely cares about each of her clients and giving them the best day possible and figuring out what’s important to each couple. I really appreciate this because felt like a collaborate effort. On the day of the wedding, she had the BEST energy. Her joy, positivity and personality truly shine and radiate. I received so many comments on how much guests loved our photographer because of how lively and wonderful she was. Additionally, she was extremely creative by having us do table shots and working with the DJ to turn it into a fun game of which table was the fastest. We and our guests had such a fun time with this idea, and how we were able to get pictures with all our guests. I truly can’t recommend LaTosha enough. She is authentic, creative, radiant, talented, and so wonderful to work with. Our wedding day and pictures came out beautifully and because of her it was stress free and fun! Thank you for everything!!!

We are blessed to photography many weddings & events around the world. We've had the honor to photograph many celebs as well. All our clients are a blessing & we know it’s an honor to be chosen to photograph their memorable event. We are grateful to all who has given us the privilege to work with them. We strive to tell our couple’s story & reflect their energy in each photograph. Like Elton John & Bernie Taupin, we work in two rooms: Bob is the principal photographer & handles all the logistics of our shoots. Dawn completes our vision by editing photos & making each image sing, then designs a fine art book to encapsulate the each story.

Bob & Dawn were nothing short of amazing to work with. My husband and I changed our wedding plans quite a bit, but decided to move forward with a small and intimate wedding on our original date. Bob & Dawn were so accommodating and easy to work with, they took a ton of stress off my plate. Every single picture from our day is perfect. Bob captured every moment that I was hoping for....AND MORE. I feel as if I have an intimate relationship with the two of them now, they were involved in some pretty important and special moments of my life, and I am so grateful to have met them and gotten to work with them during a stressful time. Although I had a COVID wedding, you would truly never tell from our photos and everything I was hoping for was delivered by this dynamic duo. I know I will stay in touch with them over the years, and am grateful to have worked with them when I did!

The easiest and most special part of my wedding!! I got married last August 2022 and planned it all by myself while being a medical student. Gubert Photos made the photography aspect of our wedding so easy and incredible - not to mention the actual photos, which were everything we wanted and more! Having this day captured was one of my biggest priorities and Gubert Photos did not fail me once. I was able to fill a whole scrapbook with all of our favorite moments from our wedding and thanks to the quality of the photos, we look at it all the time. I would recommend this company to anyone looking to capture any special party or event and I anticipate working with them again in the future!! Thanks again for being great!!

I will be there documenting it all so you can keep those precious memories forever and relive your wedding day for years and years to come. I believe you deserve the world on your wedding day, I want you to be fully present and soak up all the feelings of the day!

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

I've been doing photography since high school years. After seven years working as photo journalist, I worked for 5 years on cruise line industry in the photography department. It was 2000 when I became a wedding photographer and opened our own photography studio.

As an event coordinator I look for vendors who are professional, a great value, and a team player with the other vendors at the event. Doru & Claudia Halip are at the top of that list. They have a real caring for their clients needs, making sure the photographic part of the day goes smoothly, with no drama. Many photographers do phenomenal work, however it is all about them, not the Bride & Groom. Doru & Claudia stay in the background, and their work is amazing. Many of their finished pieces have been magazine worthy, and have been published. You don't have to be a model to have incredible photographic memories of your big day, if you hire H Photography!

Such a delight to work with Saumya! We did a fall couple photoshoot. Due to the covid-19 pandemic, other than a quick photoshoot during our wedding, we hadn't done photos as a couple before. My partner is camera-shy and she made sure we both felt comfortable to be ourselves during the shoot. She is very attentive to your vision for the shoot, and creates a warm environment where the shoot feels like fun. Our pictures turned out great!
