Great Wedding Photography Starts With You (and me)!
Awesome images don’t just take themselves. Obviously, being an experienced wedding photographer helps and so does having great equipment, but the real key to capturing amazing moments is a great relationship between the couple and the photographer. Investing in those relationships is incredibly valuable to me and has become the cornerstone of my work.
I’ve photographed A LOT of Chicago weddings and I constantly give my couples advice to save time, effort and make their nuptials less stressful. I can also recommend a few select, amazing and trusted Chicago vendors (makeup artists, videographers, ect) to ensure that no one drops the ball on your wedding day. I wrote a great article that gives some awesome wedding planning tips, be sure to check it out.
I’m always asked by couples, ‘what is my style?’ and my answer is simple. Weddings call for a unique blend of candid storytelling and posed photography. Weather I’m posing a wedding party of 28+ people or photographing intimate moments between the bride and groom my approach is the same. Keep it stress free and tell a story. You can always read more about my approach to wedding photography and style.
Fortune Favors the Well Prepared
One of the keys to success is being prepared. That couldn’t be more true for wedding photography in Chicago. Having a great plan before each wedding is super important to me especially in Chicago where traveling 5 blocks can be a logistical nightmare. Having a plan also helps me know what to bring to each wedding, check out my wedding photography equipment list!
