Look no further, hire Gavyn! She has a calming presence and makes any photo occasion more fun. Her photos look natural because people are truly happy-- they forget they are in front of the camera when she is there. Gavyn has taken photos of my huge family and more recently she took photos of our new pup, Murph! My family, even the more reserved (crabby) members were in high spirits after photos started. It is clear that Gavyn loves her job and enjoys every moment of the event. Afterwards, I heard lots of comments about how it was "actually really fun" and my family truly adores the photos. I will be needing more sessions with her in the future and recommend her to anyone! Check out the blog on her website if you need any more convincing!

Ashley was an absolute pleasure to work with! She did my Fresh 48 when I had my daughter. Ashley checked in with me throughout the pregnancy and especially toward the end which was really nice! My girl decided to come on Christmas Eve, and Ashley still made sure that our shoot was a priority even given the holiday! Ashley kept my baby calm and happy and allowed for feeding/changing breaks. I also had a really hard recovery and she worked around me sitting very well. All in all the pictures were gorgeous (seriously, I’m amazed at how they turned out!) and the whole experience was completely stress free. I highly recommend! Plus, Ashley herself is the sweetest ever :)

Gia was super nice and professional and got the photos to us that same evening! This was huge, as we were able to post it and secure a tenant the very next day. The tenants did comment positively on the photos, saying that it made a difference and played a part in them coming to see our condo. Would definitely hire them again! Thanks!

We are documenting your day as it folds, capturing real emotions, but we also put a lot of energy into artistic perspective of each shoot.

WS Photography is AMAZING! We were referred to them by another talented photographer and we couldn't be happier with our entire experience. We are so grateful that we chose them to capture and document this very important day in our lives. You get way more than you pay for with these extremely talented photographers. They traveled to our destination wedding in Traverse City, MI and scouted the area the day before so that they had the perfect shoot prepared for our big day. Their customer service is great and their photography is out of this world fantastic. I am glowing with excitement from all of the gorgeous photos from our big day, it will be a challenge to choose which ones to print because there are so many great options. Milan and Jelena are a great team and they do a great job at capturing the scenery as well as the love and excitement in their photography. They gave us a sneak peak of photos before we left for our honeymoon and their turnaround time for their final photos was very speedy. We loved that they shared a variety of our photos on their blog on their website, that was a nice surprise. They are truly talented photographers and we are thrilled that we chose them to capture our wedding. Thanks so much Milan, Ana and Jelena!

I have been photographing Chicago families specializing in on-location and studio maternity photography, newborn photography, baby photography, kids photography, family photography, couples photography and pet photography for few years. My unique approach in photography is using natural light or studio lights to photograph babies, kids, couples and families.
Reda took our newborn/family photos and was amazing to work with! She brought her studio to you with so many different props, scenes, and backgrounds, etc. She was so patient with our newborn and 2 older boys and handled our newborn with great care. Also, I was recovering from a c-section, so Reda always made sure I was comfortable in any pose she put me in. She quickly turned around the edited photos and they were amazing! This was our 3rd baby and by far our best newborn photos (wish I knew of her for my other two). Would highly recommend and will use her in the future! Thanks, Reda!! Couldn’t be happier with our photos and we will cherish them for years to come! �
I am new in this business, but I am coming with a fresh and positive vibe. A young woman from Romania , just moved in Chicago , Illinois, trying to make her dreams come true. I am working to improve myself and to see the best in YOU !
Wow! Jola's photography for our maternity shoot was excellent! She was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. She felt like a friend that I've known for years and makes you feel so comfortable. She takes her time and does not rush you, she listens to your vision and and best of all she captures amazing natural light , elegant, modern photos. I am looking forward to have my little girl do her new born session with her!
Alicia's Photography IS THE BEST! FOUR for FOUR! Photos amazing! She is like a miracle worker! Mother's Day, Daughter's Senior pics & Senior Ambassador shoot and most recently Holiday Pics with Daughter & finally Hubby too! Due to bad weather on our day for a Fall shoot, Alicia converted us to Holiday pics in her lovely studio setting! Then I sprained my (driving foot) ankle and rib and couldn't get in to review the proofs;-(
Once we finally got in to do so, thrilled with the pics! - we placed our order v e r y close to Christmas... Worried we wouldn't be able to use our Holiday Pics for anything this year... imagine my surprise and delight when Fed Ex delivered them the Eve of Christmas Eve and Alicia also posted them on FaceBook so we could use and share the images! WOW & WHEW! Again, Alicia is the BEST! (and anyone disgruntled, (Sharon) must be very difficult to please!
Perfect photographer for your family photo session. She was very patient with our girls, very creative and really fun person to work with. Results were wonderful. I really recommend Pictures by GG for any occasion. She took my professional photo as well and it turned out perfect. She captured my natural smile and yet made me look stunning. Thank you!
Adam was such a joy to work with as he truly brought a keen creative eye to our wedding day. He was professional, organized, easy to communicate with, and a great leader for our large wedding party. He gave us great advice about how to do our receiving line and is just so knowledgeable about all things wedding. His photographs are incredible and we highly recommend him!
I can’t thank Sarah enough for everything she did above and beyond for my wedding. She did more than photography. She helped me with my dress, makeup and was a amazing support system! We were going to have a outdoor wedding, but it started to rain and everything had to be brought in from outside and set up. I was sad that the wedding had to be inside, but Sarah took charge and helped make a wonderful arrangement indoors.
Of course, we had a little family drama and she just went with the flow and still worked her magic! She made us feel so comfortable taking these photos and we couldn’t have picked a better person to do this for us! Thank you!!!
Jojo Turkson did an absolutely amazing job during our photo-shoot session. Thanks for taking the time to come into our home and capturing moments in our lives. Or as I prefer to call it, statements without saying a word! Your patience with the little ones was truly outstanding and your professionalism did show through the results of your work. I may be biased Mr. Turkson, but the economics of your work were very favorable as well, compared to the competition. Excellent job!!!
Manuel is truly THE best wedding photographer around. We found Photo Palma by looking through some wedding photographs at the church and asking, "Who was the photographer at this wedding? The photos are amazing!"... and the rest was history. Manuel made the commute from Bloomington to Chicago to meet with us at our convenience. He was professional and very interested in getting to know who we were as a couple so he could capture our wedding in a style that would reflect our unique relationship. He did our engagement photos and our wedding photos… and both were in a word… FRIGGIN awesome!... well that’s two words. They are the most creative, unexpected, and unique photos I have ever seen for wedding/engagement. You truly get what you pay for with this man… he really is one of the best in the world!
Andrew was great to work with and took way more photos of our wedding day than I could have ever anticipated. He always responded quickly to any questions that I had, was early on the wedding day, and kept everyone in line (a hard task for our large and rowdy wedding party!). I would definitely recommend working with Andrew for any of your photo needs!
Duron is the best Photographer I have ever worked with! He is so nice and easy to work with! He is a professional and knows his craft better than most. I strongly encourage anyone to try him out. I had a situation where my original photographer canceled our session last minute. I called Duron not knowing at last minute if he had availability and he worked his schedule to help us! He saved our 50th Birthday Party pictures! He made my fiancée look like a super model for GQ Magazine!
Magda & Mark are the best! They shot our wedding and captured the day perfectly. Along with being incredible photographers, they are incredible people. They took time to get to know us and our vision before the wedding which helped us feel very comfortable. They are friendly, efficient, and extremely professional. We couldn't be happier with our photos! You're in good hands with Mark Trela Photography.
Lindsey Taylor was our photographer for our June wedding in Chicago and I cannot recommend her enough! She is extremely organized, professional, hardworking and so kind. I found Lindsey’s professional photography account on Instagram and was really impressed with her photo style (classic, happy, bright, romantic, and timeless). We set up a coffee meeting and I immediately felt so comfortable with her. We discussed her style, viewed her portfolio and talked logistics. After talking with various photographers who were rather pushy and full of themselves, I was so happy to not only see that Lindsey’s portfolio was exactly the style wedding photos I wanted but that she was so down-to-earth and friendly. Lindsey made the entire contract process easy from booking to payments. Lindsey stayed in contact with me throughout the wedding planning process, often communicating via email or Instagram, sending reminders ahead of time, and being sure to ask all the right questions to understand what kind of photos we wanted. She actually made a better wedding day timeline than some of other vendors (who were hired to do just that)! On the day-of, Lindsey and her assistant showed up on time, with smiles on their faces and eager to get to work! They got started without any real direction needed from me (which was nice because I wanted to hang out with my family while getting ready). Having not even seen any of the photos yet, both my husband and I walked away from our wedding day saying how perfect Lindsey was. She was extremely easy-going and didn’t make us feel awkward and we truly felt like our normal selves. It even poured during our one-on-one bride/groom photos downtown, and every single person who sees the photos gasps with how stunning they are. She got every photo on our shot list and more! We came away with a perfect mix of posed shots, candid moments and candid moments. All are extremely timeless, happy, sharp and romantic. Nothing is overly edited and we received just the right amount of photos back. When I look at the photos, I feel like I am there in person again from getting ready, first looks, special moments and the party! I highly, highly recommend working with Lindsey Taylor for any special moments that you’d like captured!
Eva was great! She had great ideas for outdoor locations for my daughter's 1st birthday and every single photo came out great! My daughter had a blast! I forgot to bring the smash cake, but Eva insisted that my husband run and get one because a cake smash would be so much fun- and she was right! Such a memorable experience! Thank you, Eva!
I’ve honestly found my favorite salon in Naperville. I highly recommend anybody who is looking to treat themselves and get some work done. Their entire staff is hands down friendly and make you feel beautiful in your own skin! I absolutely love how they use/sell safe and sustainable products I think that’s amazing. I personally go to Karen to get my hair done and let me tell you she’s such an amazing women. She does such a beautiful job and never disappoints! I highly highly recommend checking out Karen’s work and coming in to book your appointment if your looking to get some work done. 10 out of 10 I recommend.
We loved having Andy photograph our wedding in Montana. He did a wonderful job with both interior and exterior shots for our late-summer wedding. We really appreciated that he took the time to chat with us ahead of time, helping to plan the photos we most desired, and when he arrived took the time to understand the venues to figure out the spacing and lighting he would have to work with. Kind and personable, we recommend Andy to anyone.
I have been visiting Hollywood Palms once or twice a month since they first opened. Overall, they have only gotten better since first opening, though they are very different.
First, the positives, which are why I come back each time.
+ The decoration of the building, and particularly each of the theaters, is spectacular. Fun and exciting each time you walk into a new one.
+ The seating, since they have upgraded, is excellent. You reserve a specific seat, all of them are the electric recliners that so many theaters are getting nowadays, with a tray table to eat your food. Most seats in each theater are good seats, and they’re all in good condition.
+ The food is genuinely very good. I get the Potato Munckskins with the Grinch Dip every time. They also have a phenomenal mushroom burger, good nachos, and two or three good desserts. The alcoholic drinks are good too, especially now that they have a number of good local beers on tap.
+ I typically get great service. I’ve seen lots of very negative reviews of service in here, but I have been here more times than I can count and have only had bad service maybe two times. I would say they are typically very good, and always respond quickly to the call button.
There are negatives too, however, that keep them from getting five stars.
- The seats are nice, but with reserved seating it would be nice if I could buy them online. But their online ticketing requires an extra dollar surcharge with every purchase. I don’t think that’s necessary, especially since they now charge the same as other theaters for their tickets.
- The food is solid. But it is overpriced, with no free refills on drinks. I used to justify this to myself by considering that the movie tickets themselves are so much cheaper than other theaters. But now they are $10.50 for an evening showing which is on par with every other local theater, and since you are still required to purchase at least one item, it can be a pretty pricey evening. They could fix this by not requiring a purchase, making the food slightly cheaper, or at least offering one free refill on drinks. For alcoholic beverages, they are massively overpriced as well. But this is typical of any restaurant, at least Hollywood Palms has some solid deals each weeknight that make them much more reasonable.
I haven't taken my girls to get pictures done in years. They aren't very cooperative when it comes to pictures. Duncan did an awesome job at getting great and some goofy pictures. I will definitely be back to get more done.
