Yup, Mr. S is my photographer!  He’s definitely one of the more affordable photogs in Chicago (and I searched for-ev-er).  Can’t wait for him to shoot the wedding and hopefully the UK reception!

I am so excited about our photographer, Caitlin Hazelton of http://www.hazeltonphoto.com/ She is amazing and includes a ton of stuff with her packages. She photographed my best friend’s wedding and her engagment photos and when I saw her work, I immediately knew we’d have to book her!

We hired Peter Coombs after seeing the pics he took for a wedding from a friend on Facebook (ahh the world of technology).  He’s awesome, and I am SO excited for him to photograph our wedding.  http://www.petercoombs.com

I definately recommend my photographer. She did an amazing job. It’s a husband/wife team, you get two photographers, all day.

When I looked for photographers, I did a TON of research, even created an excel spreadsheet comparing prices vs. quality…and settled on Anna. Check her out.

I recommend Jennifer Wiley, http://www.jwileyphotography.com/. Jennifer has a lovely way about her where she can make feel at ease and smile though your facial muscles are aching.

Good luck in finding your photog!

We’re using Carol and Tiem from 847Media.com. We JUST got our engagement shots taken (talk about procrastination, I’m getting married next weekend) and are swooning over them because neither of us are photogenic at all and we LOVE so many of them. On our budget, to get not one, but TWO photographers all day long – seriously, unbelievable.

You can see a few of our pics on my (very ignored until recently) blog!

Good luck!

We are going with Andre Vospette – http://www.andrevospette.com/ – and couldn’t be happier.  He’s a former newpaper photographer (most recently Chicago Tribune), plus has almost 10 years of experience doing photography on his own.  He did our enagement pictures and will be shooting our wedding with his wife.  Amazing, beautiful, photojournalism-style pictures, really fair prices plus he is such a nice guy who puts you completely at ease.  Like nomerstoo I did a ton of research, and I am completely happy. 

Andre’s fantastic! (and affordble!)
