I got married in Milwaukee, but know some wedding photographers. Here’s a Yelp search for Chicago area photographers. From knowing some photographers, I recommend Dan Gin, Peter Coombs, Jeremy Lawson, Victoria Sprung, Robert Sojka. I’ve had friends use them and had great pictures!

Hi I am using Strad Studio photography and videography for my July 2012 wedding.

Michael Rastall was great. I gave reviews from our wedding two years ago. I had one friend who used him after me and also loved him. This is his blog: http://www.rastallphoto.typepad.com/

We’re using Laura Meyer Photography for our wedding next August.  Here’s a link to her website:

http://laurameyerphotography.com/

We absolutely loved her when we met for our consultation.  I think it’s advantageous to work with a smaller business, because you know exactly who will be shooting your big day.  I stood up in a wedding last June, and went to another this July, where the couples opted to go with George Street – the results were absolutely awful.  Neither bride wanted to show anyone the photos and both photographers were surly and a nightmare to deal with.  

Pictures (along with a wonderful husband!) will be all you have left after the day is over.  Make sure whoever you hire has a style that resonates with you.  Good luck!

Kevin and his assistant were phenomenal.  I can’t recommend them enough!  Kevin did our engagement shoot in Chicago and I know they shoot weddings here too.  I still look at my wedding pictures nearly every day, I love them so much!

My sister and every other bride in our circle has used Ana Miyares.  She was voted as Chicago’s best photographer by the Knot in 2010. 🙂

If she is too pricey check out Matt Mason.  My friend used him and he does a video/photo montage that is AMAZING and makes me very jealous.
