About John Foley Photography

John Foley Photography

Owner/Lead Photographer

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.

I've been told that I am the calm amidst the chaos. It's not uncommon for my couples to not only boast about their wedding images, but about how I calmed their nerves when things got tough. I'm fascinated with the magic of photography and love creating images that make you think and wonder... My approach isn’t for everybody, but for those that feel it is, I hope to talk to you soon.

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

    John was absolutely amazing! Throughout the entire process start to finish he delivered well beyond our expectations. These are moments we will treasure forever and now we have them forever in his art. To call him a (or an amazing) photographer is simply not enough he is an artist who truly cares about his passion and clients.

    John is one of the most talent photographers I know. He truly captures the moment to make it a memory you will never forget. John’s professionalism is top notch and he's super laid back and easy to work with. He laid out an itinerary for us and we were able to adjust for more or less time if we wanted, he helped make the day go perfect and stay on schedule. He has an eye like no other and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. Everyone who has seen our photos are just in awe. John, keep doing what you are doing! You are doing great!!
