About this Vendor

Chicago Based Boutique Wedding Photographer

We consider ourselves a boutique wedding company because we believe each wedding is different and unique as well as the couple so your images should be as well. We spend a great deal of time understanding who you are as a couple and the vision you foresee in your wedding day. How you want to remember it and how you want to display it. Venue is very important,as it's the backdrop to your wedding day. We research our venues and the surrounding areas to get the best, most unique pictures for out clients. We believe that weddings can't be shot from just one angle so there will always be two photographers and an assistant to make sure your wedding day is captured from every angle. We find so much joy in being a part of your special day!
