About Layne Dixon Photography

Layne Dixon Photography

Head Photographer

Hi! I'm so glad you're here. I'm a Chicago-based wedding photographer here to help you tell your love story. Through humor, support and documentary storytelling I'm there to capture your day in an authentic way that reflects who you both are, how you love, and how your community shows up for you. Stylistically, I consider myself a docu-storyteller with a flair for art-forward portraits. With a background in film and digital, I like to incorporate the classic, the dramatic and the real.

I know how strange it can sometimes feel to have your photo taken (haaaaHA trust me), but I'm here to have fun with y'all and be a sounding board for all the thoughts and feelings that come to the surface. With a background in comedy, one of my superpowers is structuring the day in a way that feels effortless and fun. These are the images you'll hold onto forever, they should feel like *you* and the photography should be one of the (easy) highlights of your day. Let's celebrate!

    The pictures are PERFECT. Not only we were so pleased with them, but she was so easy to work with and very professional. She was kind and helpful at guiding us through the process. I would hire her again without hesitation.

    We LOVED working with Layne. She is such a positive energy and you can tell that she is so passionate about capturing the vibe and emotions of your wedding. When we look back at our photos we can see how it felt on that day. We were also unfortunate enough to experience a Covid wedding cancellation 2 months before our wedding was supposed to take place. Layne was very supportive and was willing to work with us to photograph our later elopement instead. Very communicative and a pleasure all around! We always recommend her when our friends are getting married as well.

    Layne was an extraordinary photographer for my wedding day! Not only did she capture stunning smiles, but she also expertly captured emotions and precious, once-in-a-lifetime moments and details. From getting ready with my sisters to my husband's unforgettable first glance at me, Layne's photographs allow me to endlessly relive that magical day. Additionally, her contagious energy and infectious joy brought much-needed positivity to an otherwise hectic and stressful morning. From start to finish, Layne displayed impeccable communication skills, making the entire process effortless. Without a doubt, I highly recommend her as a photographer who truly knows her craft.
