Hello! We are Samuel and MarĂ­a, a husband and wife, fine art Chicago, Illinois based wedding photography team. We are all about having fun, memorable experiences, and capturing love stories in the form of photos.  
 
We believe that love is love. All couples deserve to have an incredible wedding celebration, no matter what that may look like.  
 
Expect us to be by your side, celebrating on the dance floor, making a fool of ourselves. Count on us delivering intimate, emotion-filled photography and our 100% support on any crazy idea you come up with.  
 
While we dedicate a lot of time and work to creating a gorgeous gallery of fine art for our couples to remember their wedding day, we also pride ourselves in the connection we end up experiencing with them. We absolutely love what we do and believe that it shows. Count on us to be as helpful as your mama... just without the drama. Jokes aside, we will be there for you! Whether it's helping choose a ceremony location, telling aunt Mary to wait for her turn to get a photo with the newlyweds, or just partying hard on the dance floor (Maria's specialty), we have your back.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

We are located in Chicago, IL and charge no travel fees within the state. We also do weddings and elopements in Indiana and Virginia at a discounted travel rate. Please inquire for a quote!

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

Maria (my wife) and I have been shooting weddings for over 3 years full-time with over 40 events in the books. Because we consider every photo an individual piece of art, we generally spend more time on each wedding than the average wedding photographer. We only accept about 10-15 weddings per year.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

We consider our style to be "fine art" or "documentary". We focus on the interaction and emotions between people and do not do a lot of posing. We like to keep things relaxed and real.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

For full-day weddings, most of our couples book about 8 hours of coverage which costs approximately $3500. We also do many intimate, backyard weddings and elopements which on average cost around $1500-$2000 for 3-4 hours of coverage.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

We are all about inclusivity and consider it a privilege to work with all kinds of couples, no matter their race, spiritual beliefs or sexual orientation, ect. Love is love, friends.
