Chicago Wedding Photographer Allison Williams, of Illinois

Chicago-based photographer Allison Williams specializes in modern, documentary wedding photography. Allison worked as a staff photojournalist for Sun-Times Media before starting her own company in 2010.

William Nunnally serves couples in and around Illinois and Chicago with his wedding photography

I have shot everything from weddings in the cornfields of rural Illinois to a World Series at Fenway Park, all in search of the perfect moment. I started my award-winning photojournalism career in Boston shooting for The Boston Herald, Red Sox and Harvard University and have been shooting weddings and events here in Chicago since 2011. I love shooting weddings because I love telling stories. Few events lend themselves such an obvious beginning, middle and end as weddings and fewer still feature wily grandmothers teaching The Wobble to their grandchildren or the quiet smile of a proud father. I capture great moments and tell unforgettable stories. Let me tell yours. [Chicago Wedding Photographer]

Elena Bazini photographs weddings in Chicago.

When I’m not photographing weddings, you are most likely to find me traveling the world or straight up relaxing with my husband in Logan Square. My favorite recent trips include Thailand, France, and the Northwest Territories of Canada. When my bags aren’t packed, you can find me drinking iced lattes (even in the dead of winter), listening to music on a blanket in Logan Blvd (not in the dead of winter), or at home with my husband and little terrier (David and Frankie, respectively.) I am a Chicago-based wedding photographer who loves getting to know my clients. I love telling stories with my images. And I love weddings. When my clients look back on their wedding images, I want them to remember how it felt to be there. I want them to have beautiful images of moments they may have missed– a tear quickly swept away, a big laugh, a quick but meaningful glance. While I love classic poses and unique composition, my favorite photographs always end up being the moments that happen naturally. I am drawn to beautiful light and real emotion. I am always striving to create that image that will make you say ‘wow.’ With passion, dedication, creativity, and style, I specialize in telling beautiful love stories with photos that capture the essence of each couple.

Working exclusively on weddings, Peter Pawinski, from Chicago, has a background in newspaper photojournalism

I am a photojournalist with over 13 years experience (250+ weddings), and now I nearly exclusively work on weddings because I love the work and my clients. It is an honor and privilege to memorialize the events of a couple’s most important day. I am a graduate of Northwestern University with a degree in English literature, but have been working in journalism since my freshman year on the copy desk at the Daily Northwestern. By sophomore year, I took to photography, and a new passion was born, leading me to work with Agence-France Presse in Chicago during my college years and as chief photographer at the Budapest Business Journal in Hungary immediately after graduation. I made Budapest my home from 1998-2003 before returning to the US in late fall & to pursue wedding photojournalism. My journalism work has appeared in many major publications (New York Times, Business Week, Chicago Tribune, Maxim, Car and Driver, etc.), and I have won several awards for my wedding photography from the Wedding Photojournalism Association, including placing in the Top 20 for 2007 Photographer of the Year.

Shaunte Dittmar, of California, is a wedding photographer for West Shore Cafe
Picture this: It's mid-summer, with temps in the low-80s, a cloudless sky, and oh-so-light gusts keeping everyone just cool enough. Maybe you're out on a bluff, overlooking the ocean, or in a fragrant, blooming garden. A scene is set for the ideal summer wedding. But—back in reality here—there's no way that six to eight months or more down the road any couple can forecast such pristine conditions for their wedding day. Despite their idealized image, summer weddings can...Read more
Cake cutting photograph with the bride and groom deciding if they should smash or not smash the cake.
No other tradition during the wedding day should rely as heavily on improvisation as the cake cutting. Those entrenched in the traditional camp may want to offer guidelines on where to stand, how to cut the cake and when to smile for the camera, but their promptings need not be followed for a thoroughly memorable experience. In fact, not following the “rules” is frequently what makes the cake cutting unforgettable. This time-honored ritual can turn into an entertaining affair with...Read more
Wedding Photography of Parents - ceremony image showing the handover by the father of the bride to the groom
In the 1950 classic film Father of the Bride , George, played by Spenser Tracy, watches his daughter Annie, played by Elizabeth Taylor, take her wedding vows and says to himself, “I realized at that moment that I was never going to come home again and see Annie at the top of the stairs. Never going to see her again at our breakfast table in her nightgown and socks...Annie was all grown up and leaving us, and something inside began to hurt.” The scene may be fiction, but the emotion behind it is...Read more
Denis Gostev, of New York, is a wedding photographer for St. Francis Xavier Church
You can argue that of all the photos on your wedding day, the ones taken during the ceremony are the most meaningful—that’s why you’re there, right? It’s ironic, then, that wedding photojournalists regularly have the most trouble shooting their best work in the churches where these very ceremonies take place. Often times, significant moments unfold in front of camera lenses that are too far away, positioned at awkward angles, and photographers are forced to operate under...Read more
Show Shutter Wedding Day Photography - Groom dancing at the wedding reception with some blur
Dragging the shutter is a basic photographic technique that is often put to highly creative use by the best wedding photojournalists. Whether depicting the bride mid-whir during a dance, or documenting a child bounding down the aisle at the church, dragging the shutter helps produce images that contain a sense of motion and bring an added dose of festivity to what, for some, already feels like a whirlwind day. When photographers “drag” the shutter by slowing down its speed, they...Read more
Wenjie Han, of New York, is a wedding photographer for
A wedding is a special event for all involved, and children are no exception. With little boys suiting up in tuxedos and young girls stepping into gowns layered in satin and lace, it’s a milestone for your smallest guests as well. It’s that rare occasion when they receive a glimpse into the adult world in all its ceremonial splendor. But in the thick of wedding planning, many brides and grooms often forget the little ones. Well, you need not be one of the forgetful. With a bit of...Read more

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Devin and Joy

Photo by William Nunnally

The photos we received were absolutely gorgeous. My wife and I could not have been happier with them, which is saying something because she hates all photos of herself. Also, we had some unexpected snow and freezing weather, but you made sure to make the outdoor shots as painless as possible. The snow ended up looking stunning in the photos too, so that was a silver lining. You're definitely a great photographer with a more artistic touch to your photos as well.

Sarah & Charles

Photo by William Nunnally

We met with other photographers about a year ago, but they were either too aggressive or too passive and all fairly cliche. Not so with you. It's true that when we met you, we appreciated your laid-back vibe and promise that you wouldn't ask Sarah to stare plaintively out a window. But we didn't know you were masterful until we saw our engagement photos. We love the candidness and joy, even silliness, and the art. The shot of us standing in the Logan Square train vestibule, our illuminated backs to the lens, slightly elevated, with our reflection catching the opposite Plexiglas wall, behind which a sea of blues and purples bathe us is still Charles' desktop background. Your reconnaissance and eye for perfect light combined with your ease in assembling children and adults, we're sure, proved the right balance to allow us to enjoy the celebration while documenting it for perpetuity. Thank you for visiting parks weeks beforehand and getting in the mix - whether in a hot glass-blowing studio or nearly crushed in the center of the Hora - the day of. You're a trooper.
