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.

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!

Anders Maagaard

5.0

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
I will start this review off by simply stating that the choice of the photography “vendor” might have been one of the most important choices to me in our wedding planning process and the one that gave me much anxiety initially. I was looking for someone who could capture the feeling of our day, of course get lovely photographs of our friends and family, and also let shine their artistic talents to create photos that could stand alone without the obvious label of a “wedding shot.” The decision of which photographer to pick with the initial brief above seemed daunting...especially in a sea of what seemed to be very standard wedding photographers all at about the same price point or much more for what didn’t seem like better quality. When I stumbled upon Anders, I immediately felt a connection to his artistic style that felt in a different league to what I had been looking at. We had an initial consult with Anders and all of the feelings of anxiety over the photographer (how the pictures might turn out, whether we were going to regret our choice, etc.) washed away completely. We are living in the PNW and were able to do an engagement shoot while we were in Chicago briefly and Anders was very flexible with our scheduling and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. He spent extra time, took us to such interesting spots, and the results were so beautiful. I mentioned in our initial consultation that what was most important to me was enjoying our wedding day and the special time with friends and family which is exactly what we got. Anders did such a great job in making sure we stayed on track with important shots and was able to create so many other personal shots that I just love looking back on! Not only this, but he also ended up creating a wedding video for us that was so special. Not only is Anders a wonderful photographer, but a wonderful person who is so friendly, kind, and truly passionate about his work. We are not the only ones who noticed; We had multiple guests after the wedding comment on how fun Anders was to interact with. I cannot think of an easier decision that we made for our wedding. I cannot recommend Anders enough!

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
Jana is awesome! Her communication and personality are 10/10. She was very responsive about things we didn't know how to handle (wardrobe decisions etc.) and was always happy to help. There is no doubt that knows what she is doing and how to direct/compose photos in addition to having a great eye for framing with the scenery! Her prices are very fair, as well! We used her for our engagement and wedding photos and will definitely contact her in the future if we need a photographer!

Lisle, IL
  • Photojournalistic style
  • 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!

Rachel was referred to us by our married friends who also shot with her. We're more than thrilled we went with her! I'm not exaggerating when I say that I think her work is the best I've seen. I saw some of previous work in her portfolio and thought to myself, "wow, that's incredible, but I don't think we have the means to so something that spectacular around here." I was totally wrong. Rachel is able to transform nearby locations into magical and breathtaking backdrops. She was able to make these special memories appear like they were taken out of a movie. We will look back on these beautiful pictures for the rest of out live. They turned out even better than what we imagined, and we couldn't be happier. Thank you Rachel!

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.

You will always be thankful you used her to capture your most special days!

With 12 years of experience, Julie Riddle masterfully blends the timeless art of classic 35mm film with the precision of digital photography. Specializing in photojournalistic photography, she captures candid, emotional moments that tell a compelling wedding day story. Her expertise ensures a perfect balance between the nostalgic charm of film and the modern clarity of digital images. Julie’s work is characterized by natural, spontaneous shots that beautifully document the genuine essence of each couple's special day.

Awarded Best of Zola
This is going to be a long BUT WORTHY review because we cannot say enough AMAZING things about Julie - she is the best photographer ever! Working with Julie was a highlight of our wedding day. She has a very calming presence ad knowing she was there taking my photos made me so happy. She took our wedding photos and an engagement photo shoot and is truly one of the kindest people I have ever met! She has excellent communication and responds to calls and texts almost instantly, which was so reassuring because I was running late getting to the venue and she was fine walking around and getting a lay of the land before I got there. From the initial phone call to hear about her services and ask questions, I knew without a doubt she would be our photographer. She explained her wedding packages, her experience with photography and it felt like I was having a conversation with a friend and throughout the wedding process ad the big day, I feel like we have become great friends. She personalized our photo experience to match our style and that is so apparent in all of the photos. She provided the wedding photos within 6 weeks of the wedding day and kept me in the loop on timing and sent amazing preview pictures. She has a very easy to use gallery in which a link is provided, and you can download all of the photos. I got so many compliments from guests that she was so friendly and took so many great photos. For someone who worries about everything, photos was something I did not have to worry about because she knows exactly what photos should be taken and took suggestions for poses we wanted (it was a wedding on a tennis court so we had a few specific poses we wanted). She got so many great photos of guests, family photos, candid photos during our vow exchange and other times and during the ceremony that every emotion we were feeling was captured on film. My husband hates photos, but Julie is such a calming presence that even my husband and some family members who don’t like photos really enjoyed taking photos. She can strike up a conversation with anyone and is a ball of positive energy, which is a must have on a wedding day! Everyone that talked to her was delighted to meet her and said she was the best photographer they have met, and I couldn’t agree more. I am still amazed at the photos we received. She made the colors of the flowers, my hair (redhead) and the colors of the bridal party dresses pop in a way I didn’t even know was possible. She truly captured every emotion of the day. I couldn’t be happier with the photos and cannot wait for Julie to take more photos in the future for our family!

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.

We had our engagement photos with Jill and they were amazing!! The engagement shoot helped us to get comfortable in front of the camera and Jill provided just the right amount of guidance. We were so excited for her to photograph our June 2020 wedding, but then COVID hit and we had to postpone.  Even with all of the uncertainty, Jill was very supportive, understanding, and flexible during the extremely stressful times. We worked closely with Jill throughout the process and talked through any changes along the way.  After being told we would need to wear masks during our wedding ceremony in church (heartbroken that our first look moment walking down the aisle would be taken away) – Jill shined through with the fantastic idea of having our first look outside of our condo.  It made for such a special moment and one we would have never thought would make such a good backdrop.  Jill is very talented and had an attention for detail the entire day of our wedding ceremony and it shows in all of our photos.  She captured all of the love and emotions of the day you can feel when looking through the pictures. The photos are priceless memories we will be able to look back on and treasure forever.  We can’t wait to work with her again for our reception in 2021!

He also called us aside for some photos during the reception at golden hour, which was a special time to escape for a few minutes. Jake delivered the photos within the promised timeframe. And we were delighted with the results. My 2 older siblings have both used Jake as their wedding photographer, and I'm glad I followed in their footsteps!

Elgin, IL
  • Photojournalistic style
  • 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.

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 Brook Photography is absolutely AMAZING! Her professionalism and personality make her so easy to work with. She really knows how to make her clients feel comfortable in front of the camera & captures their beauty effortlessly. Kayla is extremely quick to respond to emails & is highly organized! Her photos always turn out PERFECT & she really knows how to capture emotion. I have received so many compliments on photos that Kayla took! I can't recommend Kayla enough!

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

If you made it to this page, you can see through my work that I love telling the story of your day by capturing the emotions and moments you can't afford to miss. ​ I come from a large Italian family with many of us extended into the arts or passionate about cooking and singing. I picked up my first camera in high school and immediately I was hooked. Today, I have over a decade in the industry, multiple commendations, and have held the Wedding Wire Couples' Choice Award and The Knot Best of Weddings Award 7 years in a row and counting. ​

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!

For as long as I can remember I have always been around a camera. Growing up, my Mom was a big documenter of life freezing childhood moments in prints and recording videos. 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.

Joy has been absolutely wonderful to work with in all capacities. She puts a lot of effort into getting to know her clients with personal touches that do not go unnoticed. Most photos taken of me (the bride) in normal life are of the marathon / running photo variety, so I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel with more posed couple photos. Joy made everything feel so natural and easy between both the engagement shoot and the wedding day. Joy is extremely organized and is fantastic with time management - her template for the timeline worked so well for further planning. When the ceremony ran over, she got us back on target and moving out of the church while getting all the photos we had requested. She has such great vision for small details and how things will photograph - I often said “I trust your vision!” and the photos turned out so stunning! I especially wanted to remember the day in color, and Joy absolutely delivered on that (and quickly, too - the sneak peeks came back the next day!). She truly captured the magic of a fairytale day, and I am thankful to her and her team for their hard work. Joy is an invaluable asset to have on your wedding day, and you truly will not regret booking with her.

    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.

    Our wedding was in the middle of the covid pandemic and caused so much stress for my husband and me. After rescheduling the date and the location multiple times we were finally able to get married in April 2021. Rescheduling with Eivan’s was as simple as a form. We had a couple of hiccups with the date change but Sam was able to assist (more than once) and meet our expectations. The wedding went on without a hitch and the photographers and videographers were amazing. I needed guidance on how to pose and what pictures to take and they knew exactly what to do. We even had a drone to get an aerial view of the church and the golf course, which came out amazing in the video. After the big day we were able to get our photos very fast and had them within months, it was amazing. We did however have some bumps in the road when it came to our video and trailer. As one can expect there were delays due to covid and staffing. Our video edits took longer than expected and it did get frustrating when trying to reach out for assistance. However, we spoke with Sam, one of the managers, who was able to resolve our issues and ease our frustrations in the end. Overall the experience may have had some hiccups but Eivan’s was definitely the best choice for our big day.

    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!

    Working with Elliot was absolutely incredible. We had a large wedding party with a lot of moving parts throughout the day. He was the solo photographer on the contract and absolutely killed it! He made sure to get every shot requested from every family member! The weather was a bit tricky, and he was sure to have clear umbrellas on hand just in case - and a white-lined clear umbrella just for the bride/groom, large enough for both of them to fit underneath. Thank goodness he did, because it started to rain just as we got onto Lambeau Field for the bridal party pictures! He edited a few photos on-site and put together a little slideshow for the clients to play at the same day at Reception prior to his departure for the evening! Absolute DIAMOND of a photographer :)

    Hello there! I'm Andrea, owner of Amative Creative, and every weekend we're so blessed to be able to tell the love stories of so many amazing couples. Like many others in this industry might say, we simply adore weddings. But what makes us a little different is our entire brand is centered around telling love stories specifically curated to reflect your vision and aesthetic. "Amative" means to be prone to love, so as you can see, we want nothing more than to tell your love story! But what makes us truly unique is that we understand every love story looks different. And we personalize every aspect of how we document your wedding day!

    I can not begin to describe how amazing these girls are! I had my wedding back in August and it was absolutely perfect! Looking back at my pictures throughout the day, I could not have asked for a better team by my side! Sarah & Amber absolutely killed the photos and are two of the biggest hype women I have ever met! Throughout the entire day they were constantly there singing praises and doing anything to get genuine smiles. Andrea was the one I talked to throughout this whole process and she is absolutely amazing! She was very kind and patient with me throughout the process (I can be indecisive and really didn't fully know my editing style) and she made it work and went above and beyond with editing! All three ladies are absolutely amazing and if you need a wedding photographer/videographer - look no further!! These ladies DO NOT disappoint!

    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!

    Grace was just amazing. For a day that was overwhelming and very stressful, I cannot thank her enough for her calm and kindness. My now husband and I are usually not "photo people", as we tend to be more introverts than anything else, and she went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. Her professionalism and guidance during the shoot can be described as more than stellar. I will definitely recommend her to all of my friends who will be getting married soon. During all the chaos, I was extremely thankful to have chosen her as our photographer.

    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.

    We found Love Knot Photography last winter while wedding planning. There were a few things we noticed right off the jump which gave us confidence that we had found our wedding photographer. 1) they were extremely thoughtful in helping us plan our wedding day schedule and what we wanted to prioritize 2) the natural style, colors and joy captured in the photos is exactly what we like 3) after looking at the packages and comparing, they are a tremendous value 4) composition and storytelling is massively important and Love Knot is at the top in these departments 5) their command of lighting is masterful After working with the team, we found our first impressions to be accurate, as our expectations were met and exceeded. Love Knot Photography is definitely the best choice.

    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!

    I don't even know where to start...Michelle was such a huge part of our wedding! Not only did she capture every perfect moment, she stepped up in so many ways for us. We had to postpone our wedding a full year due to Covid. Once we finally got closer to the date, we were on zoom calls with Michelle and my wedding planner going through the most detailed timeline. The timeline was so important to us. Michelle went the extra mile and came to my mom's house on the Saturday before our wedding to capture all of our "detail" shots, and of course snapped a few of us and our puppy Charlee! The pictures turned out amazing and I am so happy she gave us the extra time to take her time and capture these beautiful images. We had so much more time in the morning for getting ready pictures and I NEVER felt rushed during the day. I gave Michelle a huge task of capturing many family pictures and she executed this so perfect! Despite the rain rain rainnyyyy day we had, Michelle still captured some beautiful pictures of my husband and I outside which we are so grateful for. Michelle and Erik are amazing! AMAZING! Our wedding would not have been what it was without them. They took our timeline and helped to keep everything moving so smoothly! I remember asking at one point "how are we doing on time?" and I was told "we are actually 6 min ahead of schedule". It was the most perfect day. Everyone say's how the day fly's bye. I didn't have that feeling once. I felt like it was the longest day in the best way possible! I remember every moment and felt present the whole time, along with got that time for my husband and I to take in and enjoy the day for us! I don't think I would have had the same experience if it weren't for Michelle. She is amazing at what she does and goes above and beyond. We are FOREVER grateful for her and she has not seen the last of us. Thank you again Michelle and Erik! You guys have a very special place in our hearts. Love, Tony & Kelly

    If you’re looking for a wedding photographer, I’ll save you some time and introduce you to Heather! From day 1, Heather made us feel comfortable and at home, something we were so impressed with. During our engagement photoshoot, she provided us fun little games to get in the groove and captured special moments that we couldn’t have dreamed of. We were so excited to show off her work to family and even more excited for her vision on our wedding day. Leading up to then, she exceptionally communicated to us logistics and shot planning. She was very flexible and scheduled several meetings to really flush out our desired photos. Heather provided unique guidance that made preparation easy, especially with coordinating with our wedding planner. On our wedding day, we worked with Heather and Sihan, her second photographer. We also worked with Alex Yuan and Ben for videography. The whole team was a joy to be with, naturally guiding us and capturing candid moments we shared with our bridal party. Because of all the planning, the bridal party shots and family shots went very smoothly. Most importantly, we were blown away with our final photos. We were amazed by Heather’s dedication to her clients, providing us with so many perfectly crafted pictures. She also remained patient for months after the wedding, working with us to get our wedding album details in place. We could not be happier with the moments she captured on her camera, photos that we love to share with family and friends. Alex did a great job with video as well, even providing us with a trailer video while he edited the main video. We loved the cinematic take on our wedding day, painting a picture of both the intimate moments at the start of the day to the fun times in the evening. We would 100% recommend Heather and team for your engagement and wedding.

My favorite photos of the day were captured on film and had such a gorgeous vintage vibe that digital would never be able to capture. - Captured everything we could have possibly wanted, was good at posing us for posed photos but also got so many special candid moments Most importantly, Andrew has such a relaxed, positive, and calming vibe that was so important to us on our big day. I have been in weddings where the photographer is way too intense and barking orders at everyone, rushing people, and stressing out the bride and groom - I am so glad that was not the case with him. I could not recommend his services enough - it is well worth every penny.

She was a great communicator who went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding day went smoothly. Jessica being so organized and on top of things made our wedding experience much less stressful than it otherwise would have been. Neither my husband or I are super comfortable in front of a camera, but Jessica’s directions and attitude put us at ease and made for a very enjoyable experience. Our wedding day went just according to plan, and so so much of that credit goes to Jessica! Taking everything we had spoken about into consideration, she put a wedding day timeline together for us; that was a huge stress relief! Jessica was amazing leading up to the wedding and I couldn’t of been any more pleased. I had so much confidence in Jessica leading up to the wedding day, and she did not disappoint! She was organized, had a plan, and followed it just as we had discussed. When hiccups arose, she was a calming presence who quickly adapted and made the absolute best out of the situation. Now, on to the photos! Jessica is a remarkably talented photographer who captured our wedding day better than we could have imagined. The photos all turned out so good and she was able to capture so many moments that we, as the bride and groom, were not able to witness in the moment. Our couples portraits, wedding party photos, and family photos were stunning. We are also so incredibly grateful for Jessica taking the time to photograph our guests during the reception. She was able to capture every moment with such authenticity; we love to look back at the photos and relive the day.

    I booked Sarah for our intimate wedding in April, and I couldn't be happier with the results. My husband is a photographer, so he was very picky about wanting a photographer who would capture the natural beauty of our unconventional wedding in our favorite restaurant. 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!
