Anthony and Laura are the best! They photographed our wedding almost a year ago and we couldn't be happier with the moments they captured. They made a very stressed out bride feel calm and relaxed when I didn't think we had booked them for enough time. They captured everything that we had talked about prior to the wedding. They have amazing attention to detail and made my husband and I feel very comfortable throughout the whole day. Throughout the planning of the wedding they were in constant contact and would always respond quickly to my emails full of questions. After the wedding they had all the photos to us in no time. You need to book them for your wedding/event you won't regret it. They are well worth it!!!
This review is long overdue! H & S were incredible every step of the way. It's so obvious how much they love their work and it is so evident in the thier end product. Our photos are gorgeous works of art that are a constant reminder of their value. And to boot, they were so easy to deal with as we created a custom package that worked for our multi-day festivities. Book them and feel confident that your special day will be beautifully captured.
Anthony and his team did an amazing job photographing our wedding. We are so, so, sooo happy with how our photographs turned out. Their expertise is reflected in their incredible work. When you have a chance, definitely take a look at the galleries on their website – their work speaks for itself!! Beyond their photography skills, working the Hitch and Sparrow team was genuinely a pleasure. From our first meeting, to receiving our final images, Anthony and his team provided amazing service. They are kind, responsive, and a lot of fun! Most importantly, they truly believe in the value marriage. They approach their work with a certain enthusiasm that is contagious, which makes being photographed easy and enjoyable. I highly recommend having Hitch and Sparrow as part of your wedding day. I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else!
I like to think of myself as a pretty low maintenance bride, but I knew the photography was going to be especially important, so I made a lot more effort to find just the right match for us. It's easy to forget, but your photographer is the vendor you spend the most time with on your wedding day, so you better like them! Hitch & Sparrow was a terrific match for us from the start. Anthony met with us to talk about their approach and answer all our questions. I initially contacted them because their portfolio is gorgeous and just our style (not cliche and cookie-cutter like a lot of wedding photographers). What sealed the deal was how easy-going and likeable Anthony is. We had a bit of a non-traditional wedding - no wedding party, no church, ceremony and reception in one room of a restaurant, no cake cutting, no first dance, only 50 people - and we wanted to find someone who would be cool with our way of approaching the wedding. We were also a little nervous because my husband and I are both pretty shy in front of a camera, but Anthony made a real effort to make the whole experience comfortable, not at all stressful, and tailored to the two of us. It was like having a friend take our pictures - a really talented friend. Our whole wedding day was even more wonderful because of Hitch & Sparrow. In addition to the amazing first look and pre-ceremony photos, we got some terrific family portraits and candids from the ceremony and reception. We also got the photo booth for the reception, and everyone had a blast posing for pictures - it was the perfect addition to the night. We got our photos a lot faster than I expected, especially because I knew they were at the peak of their busy season and the results were fantastic. I'm not very photogenic, but Anthony made us both look like stars. Some of the images are so stunning they actually look like stock photos! I could not be happier that we chose Hitch & Sparrow!
Hitch & Sparrow captured our wedding beautifully with hundreds of gorgeous photos. We wanted a photographer who would take not only the typical posed family photos but also a lot of candid pictures of the ceremony, the reception, the guests, the garden venue, and us. H&S did all that, and more, finding the best backdrops and the most gorgeous light and setting up both fun and more romantic poses. Anthony respected our wishes to spend less time on posed photos during the reception (we wanted to dance!) and getting those in before the ceremony. H&S was flexible and accommodating, while making sure to photograph all the important (as well as the more subtle) moments. I can't recommend them more!
Photography was really the only thing we splurged on for our wedding, but I'm glad we did! Anthony and Laura were really easy to work with throughout the process. We met up with Anthony a few weeks beforehand, which definitely made us more comfortable on the day of. I'm really impressed by how flattering the majority of the photos are, considering that we were in a sweaty greenhouse in July! Besides really nice couples and family portraits, they did an awesome job capturing the dance party and some little details throughout the event.
I can't say enough good things about Anthony and Hitch & Sparrow! From our first meeting at a coffee shop in Logan Square, to our final pictures inside The Drake, it was a dream come true. Seriously- Anthony is the man! When we first met he talked about how the most important thing on your wedding day is capturing the story of your marriage- cue the tears! I was sold. Anthony worked with us closely leading up to the wedding, make sure he understood exactly what we wanted day of. On the day of the wedding, he captured everything that was going on without me even realizing he and his wife were there! He captured amazing shots of us during our ceremony, our trolley ride, and our reception. The Hitch and Sparrow photo booth during the reception was also a huge hit! Our friends are STILL talking about how much fun they had taking pictures with the props they brought. After the wedding, when we got the proofs, I cried a lot of happy tears. I had no idea a day could be captured so perfectly. I can't say put into words how happy I am that we made the decision to go with Hitch and Sparrow!
Awesome and PersonalReviewed on 10/07/2014 Annika C
I actually know the photographers through friends but it was a no-brainer when it was time to select a photographer. They really do some amazing things with lighting and have a great eye for making really unique shots. It was great having them there on the day since they weren't intrusive to quiet moments and made sure to go through the requested shots we listed out in the weeks prior. They are super friendly and wonderful if you are looking for quirky, unique and beautiful photography!
Such beautiful photosReviewed on 9/19/2014 Emily S
I can't get over how stunning our wedding photos are. Anthony and Brad captured such intimate moments that we'll have forever. We got married at the Nature Museum on August 23, and we had horrible weather that day. I had it in my head that we would have our first look photos and bridal party pictures by the lake and in lincoln park, and was really worried that we wouldn't have good photos because of the rain. I couldn't have been more wrong. Anthony and Brad have such a good eye and are so creative, that our pictures in Hotel Lincoln turned out beautifully. They also took a ridiculous shot of us under an umbrella together that we had no idea they took that looks straight out of a magazine. We had the most gorgeous sunset later on, so we snuck off and took photos outside and have the most incredible photos. Their flexibility that night was so appreciated. Choosing a photographer was one of the hardest parts of the planning process for us, but their style really stood out. We met Anthony at Indie Wed, and my husband was really impressed with the way they custom light every shot. We did our engagement photos with Anthony too, which I highly recommend doing as a way to feel more comfortable with them on the wedding day. They were both so fun to work with on the wedding day, which is so important because you share such intimate moments with them! The groomsmen were asking if they could be part of the bridal party too, they liked them so much. We had a blast with them, and are so pleased with the photos. Thanks guys!!
Couldn't Be Happier!Reviewed on 8/20/2014 Mackenzie S
My husband and I worked with Anthony (and his wife) for our wedding. My husband does wedding photography, so choosing a photographer was a big deal and difficult decision for us. After looking through over 100 websites, we decided to hire Anthony. He wasn't cheap for us, but we made the decision to invest in the venue and photos, since the photos would be the only thing that would stand the test of time after the wedding (besides our marriage, of course!). We totally made the right choice, and couldn't be happier! His use of light is dead on, and the corrections he has to make to his photos in post-editing are minimal since he hits things right the first time. If you have a larger budget for photography, I would highly recommend checking out Hitch & Sparrow!
These guys are the BUSINESS!!Reviewed on 7/29/2014 Noah G
I had the pleasure of working with Anthony and Brad when I stood up in my best friend's wedding last summer. The pair together...just awesome...and I realized I could not not work with them. Demand for these guys has gone way up, so I was glad we could at least snag Brad for our big day, who along with his wife, Nicole, and professional friend, Chloe, brilliantly led a group of 20 bridal party members through an enjoyable process. My wife and I were married at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, and we did not expect all of the mosquitos on that July 19th, 2014. It could have been easy to say "to hell with this, we've got enough, let's get back to shelter!" Brad and the team, however, made us feel at ease and encouraged us to keep going until they had everything we needed. These guys are truly MVPs of their craft, and you can count on them to quarterback any type of wedding. They are great listeners and willing to provide consultation throughout the wedding process. After all the time, sweat and mosquito battle wounds, they deliver a final product that helps you remember your wedding like the fairytale it was. Oh, and they also make you look like sexy bitches. We can't thank these guys enough for such a wonderful experience. There's no other company we'd recommend to our friends and family.
