Working with Andre was an absolute pleasure! We held a 15th anniversary, black-tie party with 120 guests at the University Club in Chicago. This was really important to us as we never had a proper wedding reception, so this was our opportunity to finally bring our friends and family together. Andre was masterful in taking beautiful pictures of the evening capturing the love and joy of everyone. He was very easy to work with, and completely unobtrusive, yet managed to capture intimate moments throughout. He also had the exact right balance of action shots (so much dancing!) and group pictures, and made sure I didn't miss critical moments for the photos. I am absolutely thrilled with the results and can't wait to get my album picked out! I recommend Andre with 100% confidence More...

Andre and his team are, hands down, the best photographers in the business! I have not one regret hiring them and knew the outcome would exceed my expectations. He offered some great ideas for photo shots and captured the entire day flawlessly. I barely even noticed him and his crew, including the videographer with no bulky equipment! He is timely in his e-mail responses, professional in his work environment, and the quality of the pictures are the best I've ever seen! The value you get for hours of photography, a video, a surprise from him after the wedding, the online portal, et cetera, well worth it!! Don't waste another minute and hope that he is available for your special day! More...

I was lucky enough to meet Andre 10+ years prior to my own wedding because he was the photographer my sister used at her wedding. It was a no-brainer I would want him for our own, and, thankfully, he was available for our special day.
That being said, I was blown away by the service I received from beginning, middle, and end. He was responsive to all e-mails in a very timely manner and efficient in gathering all the details. He is highly professional and knows a TON about his craft. I felt completely at ease the day of and he was quick to set up/tear down from one location to the next. I am SO thankful he accompanied us on our bus ride from the ceremony to reception, because as luck would have it, some unforeseen Chicago traffic forced us to walk a portion of the way, but Andre took this opportunity to take some amazing candid shots along the way.
The entire day you barely noticed them around, but looking back at all the pictures, they literally captured every moment flawlessly.
We couldn't be happier with the outcome and our guests have expressed the same after viewing our pictures. I would recommend Andre a thousand times over to anyone looking for an exceptional photographer with great class and quality work.
A BIG BIG thank you to Andre and his team! Outstanding!

To all brides and grooms to be- Trust me when I say you cannot go wrong with selecting LaCour Images for your wedding day! They exceeded our expectations in every single way and I can't express how wonderful they are! Read below for more details--Andre and his photography staff played in integral part in making our wedding an amazing experience for us. We had decided on Andre as our photographer almost a full year in advance of our wedding. He and his wife were receptive to our varied requests and alterations to his typical packages, and helpful in making suggestions that we would not have considered ourselves. They were patient and helpful in determining the time and location of our engagement pictures, which turned out phenomenal. Communication for the wedding itself picked up a lot within 6 weeks of the day. Andre was willing to accommodate our specific preferences for location of pictures before and after our ceremony. Not only was he able to deal with our large families and bridal party, no easy task, but he and his staff were exceptional in making everyone feel included and happy, which allowed us to get every picture that we wanted in a small window. His calm demeanor was a big help to us during our hectic schedule, which we appreciated more than anything else. He was everywhere without being imposing, he was clear about recommending picture opportunities but respectful of our opinions at the time. After the wedding, he was great about getting back to us about our photo album and the availability of our pictures. Overall, choosing Andre and LaCour images was one of the best decisions we made for our entire wedding! His communication was excellent throughout and he was always quick to response to all of our questions and concerns. The final photos were beyond our lofty expectations in every way; his angles were perfect, the editing was very cool and varied, and we couldn’t be happier! Thank you Andre for capturing the best day of our lives with the most amazing pictures!! More...

Andre did an amazing job capturing our special day. He first came to our house on Friday afternoon for our private ceremony. He prepared in advance to make sure he got pictures of all our friends and family and was great at capturing the event without being intrusive in any way. He then took pictures at our wedding reception on Saturday. The pictures of both days are fantastic. There are so many great shots! And working with Andre was easy and straightforward. I would strongly recommend Andre for anyone who needs to capture pictures of an event. He is fantastic. More...

Andre was great to work with both on the wedding day, as well as the planning leading up to the day. Andre had a clear vision of how to organize the flow and scheduling of photos. At the same time he showed great flexibility in working with ideas we had, as well as the creativity to capture the spontaneity of the day. Andre has a good room presence, striking the right balance of being in command of the shoot without being at the center of it. As the groom, I wasn't looking forward to being photographed but found myself relaxed around him. We hired Andre because of his experience and professionalism, and he delivered on both these.

Andre and his team were so much fun to work with! He is truly an artist! I was a very laid back bride, but I knew I wanted 2 photographers at our wedding. Andre knew our venue, and knew the outdoor area near by that we took our photos at, and I trusted his skill and how he wanted to capture our special day! At the end of the night, the sky was this deep, saturated blue, and he didn't want that shot to go to waste, he took us to the side to capture some really AMAZING shots!!! We're so excited to display our photos he took in our home and to share with our family and friends! If you want the best in the business, you got to go with LaCour Images! More...

Andre was the hero of our wedding- our original photographer had a family emergency and could not be at our wedding. Andre received my call at 12 PM the day before the wedding. Not only did he reorganize his schedule to fit us in, but he was an absolute pleasure to work with. His team is amazing and we were so lucky to have them. Thank you again! More...

From our initial meeting with Andre, we knew he was our guy. After seeing examples of his work and hearing about his process, we instantly felt confident in his capabilities. He answered questions we hadn't even thought of and guided us through what we should expect from our wedding photographer. All of this was totally solidified when we met with him for our engagement shoot. His passion and professionalism comes through in both our engagement and wedding day photos- plus, you can literally feel it when you're working with him. For example, our church had a specific time limit for pictures in the church. Capturing pictures with our entire family was a worry of ours. Andre told us he would handle it. The day of our wedding, he ran a set list he created himself (needed no help from us with this either) and seamlessly nailed all of our family pictures within the given time limit - which turned out to be 20 minutes. After our reception, we couldn't help but notice how invisible Andre made himself - while still capturing every moment. Throughout the entire day, we felt confident and totally comfortable with him and his assistants. He respected all of our wishes and reminded us of moments we would have forgotten to capture otherwise. Andre worked seamlessly with our other vendors and worked with our day of planer the entire day to ensure our timeline stayed on schedule. Shooting with him exceeded every one of our expectations.

Andre LaCour Photography did an amazing job capturing the special moments of our wedding. Maria, our lead photographer, was exceptional & incredibly talented. Not only were the pictures extraordinary and fabulous but Maria was able to rein in our gigantic families and make it so that everyone had their moment to take an amazing picture with us, the bride and groom. Maria’s eye for beauty and detail made for some exquisite photos of us outdoors near the beautiful lake shore with the amazing Chicago skyline in the background.

As you can tell from the website, Andre’s photos are very high quality and amazing. Not only is Andre a fantastic photographer, he is also a great person to work with. Andre was very flexible, easy to talk to and a great problem solver. Andre was always willing to hear my concerns and ensure they were addressed even when he couldn’t solve them himself. One example was how he helped me resolve changing my mind on a backdrop. My husband and I decided we didn’t want to pay for a backdrop and thought the venue was fine without one. When I saw the venue again about 2 days before the wedding, I realized it was not fine and I wanted a backdrop. I called Andre and he didn’t provide backdrops but asked who I was using as my DJ and said they do backdrops, and advised me to call them and ask. I thought it would be too late and he said they may be able to do it and I should go ahead and call. He was right and I was very pleased that I didn’t have to be stuck with my decision of no backdrop! Andre did a great job of helping me figure out a solution. He was also very accommodating to my requests. I had a unique idea I wanted to execute and Andre gave a great suggestion that I ended up using and my guests were very appreciative of it. He also did a great job of rearranging the day when my hair and make-up artist was late finishing resulting in a late start. There were many things Andre did that went above and beyond and my husband and I am very appreciative of Andre’s services and I’m sure you will be too! More...

It is not fair that Yelp only let's you give 5 stars. Andre deserves so many more. From our initial meeting with Andre to our wedding day and even for the months following we knew we made the best choice. Looking through Andre's website we knew we found our wedding photographer, and meeting him confirmed it. He was so easy to talk to, work with, and down to earth. Just the type of energy we wanted around the day of our wedding. His works speaks for itself. He made taking our wedding photos fun, comfortable, and enjoyable (even our outside shots in freezing Chicago). Our guests absolutely loved him. He captured every little moment absolutely beautifully. He called me a couple days before the wedding to run through how things were going to work and the schedule of the day. He had everything under control and it looked effortless. The shots he captured we will treasure forever. Our only regret is we didn't have him at our rehearsal dinner and looking back now, I would have LOVED to! I highly recommend Andre for your wedding day or any other special moment you want to capture. He and his staff are worth every penny and  more. More...

There are two parts of the photography session and Andre nailed both of them!! First, taking the pictures. He made me feel like a supermodel and I actually had fun getting pictures taken. I recently had the pleasure of using Andre for a very special event (my 10th anniversary party). He just made me feel so good and treated me so well, I could not wipe the smile from my face (which showed in the pictures). Second, the pictures...oh my goodness...the pictures. They were absolutely beautiful. I looked great (difficult considering I was actually pretty sick!) and the pictures he took of my event were spectacular.

Andre is a pleasure to work with! He certainly has a distinctive aesthetic - you know an Andre Lacour photo when you see it- but his commitment to understanding your needs and wants shines through. He is willing to flex within his own style to meet your preferences. He took the time to get to know us as a couple and I think that was reflected in our photos.

Andre is also at the top of his craft - and it shows. He is professional, experienced and efficient. What's more, every photo from the candid shots to the more formal, feels 100% genuine and authentic; not superficial or overly posed or "artsy" for the sake of being artsy. He captured moments and memories I get to relive each time I look at our photos.

If he is within your budget, he is worth every penny. He's the first and only photographer I recommend to future brides.
