About

A sense of adventure and the willingness to test myself has always been a driving force in my life. What drew me to photography was that I was encouraged to take risks, to embrace my own unique vision and create the images that would stir the emotions of both my clients and me.

Joe is the best! We loved sharing our wedding day with him and having him there to photograph our special time. Before the day, his communication was excellent, and made us feel comfortable and excited about the day and how the photos would turn out. On the day, he was professional, warm and friendly - the perfect combination of making sure we had beautiful photos and letting us enjoy the day. I'd recommend him to anyone and our photos are stunning. Thank you Joe! More...

Joe recently shot our high school senior's graduation portraits. Not only were the photos of amazing quality, but Joe has a way of putting his subjects at ease when he's working with them. He's able to capture the most subtle and vulnerable qualities that clearly show in the finished product. Highly recommend! More...

Honestly, I don't know where to start with all of the positive things I have to say about Joe Latter!! Firstly, to give you a little background about myself-- I am highly particular, very detail oriented, and had a vision for my wedding day. I interviewed so many vendors, across every service, and I think Joe is absolutely fabulous! I instantly fell in love with his style of photos from his website gallery. But what continually impressed me, was Joe's attitude and professionalism! He is sooo positive and honestly made the entire experience such a blast (& taking photos can be so tedious-- just ask my husband;) ) He is fun, outgoing, comical, and most of all, efficient! So you won't be spending your whole special day taking photos and instead will be enjoying it with your guests! I think having a photographer who makes you smile and laugh naturally makes your photos just that much more beautiful-- and when I look at my wedding photos, I can truly feel the love and joy enriching my eyes! They are stunning More...

We couldnt have dreamed of a better experience than what Joe Latter provided. Not only are his photographs artistic and inventive, but they capture the essence of the moment. Joe makes it easy to feel comfortable in front of the camera and his turn around time is lightening fast. I can't wait to have him back to Chicago to take photographs of our little one. More...

We just had Joe and Marisa shoot our wedding this past weekend. They were AWESOME! They were on time, very professional, and comforting. Taking pictures was something we were nervous about and they made us feel super comfortable. We had a few special shots that we wanted, and they made sure we got all of them! Joe was fast and encouraging and very creative. If you are look for editorial style photos, he is THE BEST. We can't wait to see our final shots!Thank you Joe!! More...

AMAZING!! Joe is absolutely incredible. He is such a nice guy. He made my husband and I feel so at ease being in front of the camera. The PHOTOS he took...were simply GORGEOUS and FABULOUS. It was mindblowing how he beautifully captured my wedding day and engagement photos. He is a true professional who certainly loves what he does and it shows! He is so quick to respond when you need anything..and the other great thing about Joe is that while we were away on our "Mini Moon", he shot us an email and said the photos were ready for view on his website. It was just a few days after our wedding!! I was so impressed by his turnaround time. We to this day continue to get compliments on how gorgeous the photos are.Truly exceptional work. So glad we met him and could not have asked for anyone better! Can't wait for future booking with Joe:) More...

Chossing someone to capture the most important even in your life is not the easiest thing to do, and definately one you dib't want to try to save as much money as possible in. ..at least for me. I knew I wanted the perfect wedding in the perfect place...but i also knbew evry well I wanted to be able to remember it in very special, classy and unique way. Joe Latter was able to provide all those things for my husband and I, and because of that, we will now able to forever remember our day in a beutiful artistic way as our wedding day itself! More...

Absolutely incredible. Could not imagine a more perfect photographer for our big day. He helped my husband and I feel comfortable and we actually LIKED taking the photos. We would highly recommend him to anyone. Pictures look like they should be a movie poster! More...

Even before I was engaged I had been scoping out Joe's photos online and in his blog. I became and instant fan of his style and knew I wanted him for my wedding some day. We just got back the proofs from our engagement shoot with Joe, which was part of our wedding package. We were so pleased with our photos! They look like our style, are comfortable yet stylish and very striking. Joe was so easy to work with and just let us be ourselves, which was what I really wanted in a photographer.I can not wait for our wedding in September and all the amazing moments I know he is going to catch.Just remember: flowers die, cake gets eaten, dress goes in the closet- but your photos last forever. Its worth the price! More...

Joe Latter did an excellent job as our wedding photographer and I would highly recommend him to a friend. Joe took the time to discuss our photography with us in advance to get an idea of the type of memories we wanted to create. On the day of the wedding, Joe came to the bridal suite while the girls and I got ready for the wedding. He has a laid back personality and it was fun having him with us during this special time. He captured so many photos as the moments happened and didn't make them feel staged. Joe has lots of creative ideas and found backdrops in the hotel without the opportunity to plan them in advance. The backdrops were so pretty and unique that it was hard to believe they were french doors in our bridal suite or the wall covering in the elevator, etc. Joe also has a special talent to create and capture special moments (ie, the moment the groom seems the bride). Joe is a really fun and cool guy, his prices were very competitive, and it was a pleasure having him be a part of our special day.

Joe Latter is beyond exceptional. My husband and I were thrilled with our engagement session and wedding pictures. His level of professionalism was amazing and his talent is beyond. We were so pleased with our pictures, and have received so many compliments. I can't wait to have Joe photograph more life milestones, and look forward to working with him in the future.

It would be a mistake not to hire him!!!!

He is so personable and makes you feel comfortable. Very laid back guy. I could not have hired a better photographer!!! I would be happy to answer any questions you have about him. Email Mandy at amcorbin83@yahoo.com. I truly believe the photographer is the best important vendor.:))) Best Wishes! More...

Joe is an amazing photographer. He was with us almost all day from start to finish. We love his relaxed demeanor that helped to keep us relaxed as well. His assistant Erica is also fabulous. Our pictures really showed the feel of the day. More...

We really loved Joe's body of work and he seemed to be a really nice guy. He was genuine, personable and really loves what he does. Unfortunately, he was more than we budgeted for photos but I feel with him, you really get what you pay for.  I would recommend him even though we did not go with him.  I hope we don't regret our decision : ) More...

Joe Latter is the best photographer ever and that is not an overstatement.  I feel incredibly lucky to have found him and it was purely by accident (well, I might have bought a ton of wedding magazines and was drawn to his photographs).  Joe photographed my engagement and wedding pictures.  I am not photogenic.  Moreover, I am extremely critical of any pictures ever taken of me.  Joe's photographs, however, are different.  His shots are detailed and expressive.  He brings out the best in each person.  Just as importantly, he is extremely personable and could not be more reliable.  My husband and I interviewed 7 photographers.  All came highly recommended from friends...except Joe was my pick, I found him in a magazine byline and new he was the one.  Joe was the first photographer that we met with and I liked him right from the start. I found him because I saw his work and loved it.  It's not the typical stand-in-a-line and say "cheese" photography.  His is magazine-like.   It makes those flipping through the photographs feel as if they were there and tells the story of the day.  More than anything, Joe is incredibly easy to work with, reputable, laid back and reliable.  He and his assistant worked tirelessly all day taking amazing photographs and we barely knew they were there, except for the reassurances that everything was going smoothly.  He listens to your vision of the photographs and provides amazing ideas to complement that vision (not try to steer you away from it).The wedding was in July and we still haven't chosen the shots for our wedding album because they are all so good we can't pick our favorites.   Joe is worth every penny.

Joe was hands down our best investment in the whole wedding. We decided right away that photography was the most important item on our vendor list. We figure that after the dinner and cake was eaten, flowers were withered, that we will always still have our photographs from our wedding.

He was actually originally out of our budget but my hubby saw me repeatedly return to Joe's website, admiring his beautiful work that he just said, "Let's do it!" After we got our photographs we decided he was worth every penny and we're relieved that we went with him. I actually had one of my bridemaid say that she wishes she weren't married so that she could hire Joe to take her wedding photos!

Also we realized that all his packages are all inclusive with unlimited hours and a 2nd photographer. If we added all his services to other photographer packages, they would be just as expensive if not more than Joe. All of his packages except the cheapest one included an engagement session. He also will photograph your rehearsal dinner. Instead of that we had our tea ceremony the day before and asked him to shoot that instead. This was a year ago so check for new pricing or packages.

He has a great photojournalistic and artistic style. He's incredibly creative and easy to work with. All our friends and family who we show our wedding pictures to say that ours are the best they have ever seen. You won't be disappointed with his work. He also has a great laid back personality too, is very professional, and on time. The one thing I would point out is that you won't get your digital files until 1 year after the wedding.

You will get to view your pictures online within 2-3 days after your wedding on pictage.com. We viewed our on our honeymoon in Europe!

Joe Latter Photographer shot our (my husband and I) engagment session, as well as our wedding day... I highly recommend everyone to use him. .. Joe Latter!!! He is absolutley phenomenal. It was so fun working with him, because he knows how to make you feel like you've done this a million times! Also, he livens it up! His attention to every little detail of a shot is impeccable. He really captures the essence of who you are. He's very versatile, in regards to, where to have the shoot, what style shoot, and the different packages that he offers. It's perfect too, because he places all of your pictures on a website, for you or your friends and family to look at and/or buy. I have had SOOOOO many compliments, in regards to him! Everyone loves his work... YOU WILL TOO! =D More...

Joe Latter is a fantastic photographer, and his wedding work is phenomenal! He is very professional, but has a laid-back attitude that puts everyone at ease. This makes it easy for him to capture all the important moments of the wedding without everyone standing still like they are posing for a wax museum. Our photos are beautiful, and really capture the spirit of the event, not just the requisite family portraits and certainly nothing kitschy! Joe's style is much more photo-journalist, and we love to look back at the memories he recorded for us.

I would recommend Joe Latter Photographer without hesitation.
I cannot emphasize how strongly impressed we have been.

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE Joe's work and all our friends have said our pictures are the best they have ever seen. My bridesmaid even said that she wish she wasn't married already so she could hire Joe to take her wedding pictures. My husband and I put photographs as number one priority on our wedding budget and we are 100% happy with our decision. The food has been eaten, the flowers are dead but we have our beauitful beautiful pictures. And of course our happily ever after :PJoe has a really laid back personality that makes him easy to work with and be comfortable around. Just meet him and you will know. Also his work speaks for itself. You will love your pictures and be happy you made the investment! More...

I just got married on May 5, 2007 and Joe was my FAVORITE vendor. He shot the most amazing photographs and yes, he is not cheap but worth every single penny. He is so creative. I even had friends say they wish they weren't married so that they could hire him for their wedding photographs.www.joelatterphotographer.com More...

My friend worked with them on her wedding photography and video taping. They did very good job. They are little expensive but I ra ther pay more to get a good job than a bad one. Especially for occassion like wedding. More...

Q&A

The secret to taking a good photograph is to understand the comfort level of your client being photographed.

I rarely start out by asking a client about their photographic needs. I want to know more about them, the things they like, dislike, their passions in life. This gives me a better sense of what they want in photography.

Whats not to love!? My camera has taken me around the globe and taught me to search for beauty in even the smallest of details.

I wouldn't say I was inspired it just seemed as a natural progression for me. I knew very early on that photography would be my life's work.

I've been told that I'm very easy to work with. Relaxed yet professional. I understand that the images I'm creating for my clients will represent milestones in their life (wedding, baby, graduations, etc...) I love when I make a great image, but the true reward is when my clients love it more than me.
