J. Brown Photography
Based in ChicagoCONTACT ME
I'm located in the Wicker Park neighborhood in Chicago, IL. I do not charge a travel fee for events in the City of Chicago or surrounding suburbs. If your event is outside of this (downstate Illinois, or neighboring Michigan, Wisconsin or Indiana), it simply depends on your specific event plans and location. Having a destination wedding? Let's connect! I'm very open to traveling abroad!
Before moving into wedding and commercial photography, I was a full-time staff photojournalist at Pioneer Press Newspapers in Chicago (2000-2009). I started photographing weddings part-time in 2002, and then full-time in 2009. I generally photograph 20-30 per year, so at this point I've photographed hundreds of weddings.
I blend modern documentary wedding photography, with creative dynamic portraiture. Ultimately my goal for every couple I work with is to help them relive their wedding day through the images I create. I accomplish this by looking for sparks of emotion, defining moments, and documenting the day as it unfolds.
My wedding photography services start at $4750 and include:
- Lead photographer Jason Brown
- Associate second photographer
- Sharable online gallery
- Images in both color and black & white
- Access to the full resolution images
I generally meet clients in-person or over zoom. If you prefer an in-person meeting, my office is in Wicker Park.

My work has been recognized by the Wedding Photojournalist Association and Illinois Press Photographers Association.
I've also been featured in Modern Luxury Weddings and The Knot Chicago magazine.
Lately I’ve been enjoying fixing up our old house with my wife Claire. I also love traveling somewhere new, or going west to visit my family, skiing, hiking in the mountains, strumming my guitar (still learning), and spending time with friends around the fire pit.

He even stood in the pouring rain to get us the shot we wanted! Well practiced, professional, and timely- he will make your event effortless. I can’t recommend Jason Brown more highly! Just hire him! He is genuinely a GREAT photographer and you will be lucky to have him at your event.
