LET US TELL YOU ABIT ABOUT US...
We're Jeff and Lisa - a husband and wife team who specialize in Wedding Photography throughout Central Illinois (although we've been know to travel beyond when it beckons).
It all began with Jeff’s love of photography many years ago and always having a camera in his hand getting that ‘one’ shot. After branching out into the world of portrait photography, he was asked to photograph a wedding. It was then that Lisa became part of the team and we’ve been part of this crazy and fun profession of crashing weddings ever since.
We’re known for our stunning and imaginative images, and love capturing these moments on your special day. From the intricate details in the wedding gown to the fun socks the guys are wearing, we’ll be sure when you look back on your wedding day, you’ll see special memories filled with love and affection.
Our goal is that once you see your images, you'll want to continue to look at them again and again.
What we feel sets us apart is our belief that weddings are not just a one day event, but months of planning, ending with a week-end celebration.
That’s why when you choose us as your wedding photographers, you have our undivided attention the entire week-end.It begins with us attending your rehearsal so we can observe and plan how the ceremony will play-out. We also love to meet people, so this gives us a wonderful opportunity to meet your family and friends and get to know them a bit before we bring out the cameras.
Then on your wedding day, we arrive early for those special preparation photos, keeping up with you through the day, and not leaving until after we’ve made sure all those memories are captured.
Afterwards, we perform a triple back up of all files to ensure their security and begin going through every image. Approximately 24 hours later, you’ll see a sneak peek on our Facebook page with the finished images loaded on your personalized on-line gallery within 21 days. And all packages include a personalized flash drive with non-watermarked images.
“Stunning...Gorgeous...Breath-taking...Wow!...You guys are awesome!” - our clients words, not ours. Our wedding photography style can be summed up in many of our images. While we know there are times for posing, we also feel some of the best pictures come from true emotion and just allowing the moments to become something special. Our experience and years photographing weddings will allow you to be worry free and enjoy your day with those you love.
And on that not, we absolutely love black & white photography. It’s been Jeff’s passion since he was in college taking his first photography class. We feel while the color image may be beautiful, a black & white image tends to show more of the emotion. Black and white images are timeless, classic and show the true feelings. But don’t worry, we include the color image with every black & white image.
ABOUT OUR PRICING...
We completely understand this can be a major factor in choosing your photographer. Frankly, we’re not the most expensive photographers, nor are we the cheapest. We feel our rates are competitive with professional wedding photography in this area, and we certainly don’t want our couples taking out a second mortgage paying for their wedding. But that said, remember this - after the cake is eaten, the DJ leaves, and the dress is put away, the story of your wedding will be in the images taken on your wedding day. You’ll want to have someone capable and experienced to tell that story. We will help tell your story and capture those special memories for you.
WE'RE CAREFUL WITH THE AMOUNT OF WEDDINGS WE BOOK.
As far as availability, we are careful with our schedules and will not book more weddings than we can handle. It’s simply about quality over quantity and we want to make sure we can continue to offer superior service and stunning images to our clients.
Many items in the initial cost of our select packages included an engagement session, all day wedding coverage, albums, digital files on a personalized flash drive, and more.

Lisa and Jeff were phenomenal to work with! We planned a wedding very quickly, and they were an absolute pressure to work with amongst the chaos in our lives! :) They are unique in that they were great at capturing very candid and intimate moments. They love to personalize your experience, and I enjoyed bouncing ideas off of them as well. They made this day very special to us, and now we have the memories forever. Thanks so much, Jeff and Lisa

Jeff and Lisa were absolutely wonderful! From day one when we had a FaceTime chat with them, we knew they were the right choice for our pictures. The engagement pictures the took were beautiful and captured our love for each other in a way we didn't know was possible. They came to our rehearsal and got some pics of us practicing, and then spent the whole day with us on our big day. They did an excellent job of both being everywhere at once to get amazing pictures, and getting unexpected and beautiful candid shots.Sent on 06/27/2018
When we saw the sneak peak of our wedding pics a mere 24 hours after they left, we fell in love all over again, and the final set was even better! We will forever be able to look back out our wedding and see ourselves surrounded by love thanks to the Caughrons!
