Lakeshore Photo and Video did an amazing job for our wedding. We were in a predicament where we needed someone on short notice and they more than delivered. Every single person that was involved in the wedding was fantastic, professional and very talented. We loved all our pictures and video. They even brought a drone and got some awesome shots using that. My bridesmaids and I were starving on the way to the ceremony and one of the photographers even had snacks that he gave us! they really go above and beyond and have an amazing crew. We will be using them again for any events we may have in the future. one of my bridesmaids is getting married next year and she already told me she knows who she is using for photo and video. Thanks Lakeshore photo and video for capturing our wedding phenomenally!

We can't say enough good things about Lakeshore Photography & Video. Jimmy and his team were professional, creative, talent and dedicated and went above and beyond to make sure that we were satisfied. His creativity lead to a wonderful product, and he was even willing to make edits to music to make us satisfied. We are so grateful that we will be able to relive our wedding thanks to him!

We had the best experience with LakeShore Photography and Video! My wife and I completely lucked into this experience and are still completely blown away by Jimmy Fishbein. Jimmy is a phenomenal photographer, a genuinely nice, honest person and an all-around great professional to work with.

The other professionals we hired were also impressed with his work. Our families thought we had known him for a long time because he treated everyone so warmly. We had our ceremony at The Langham in Chicago and staff members had never been treated better by an outsider photographer. They were shocked that he was polite enough to ask permission to take certain shots.

We plan on hiring Jimmy again for future (non-wedding) photography. He works beautifully with every person. He's nonjudgmental, flexible, cool, has a great sense of humor, and is just what you'd hope for when you're wanting someone special to cover your special moments! Our kids absolutely loved him (ages 11, 8, and 6) and consistently talk about how fun Jimmy is and that they miss him. They have adopted him as one of their own!

Don't waste another minute looking elsewhere. Call LakeShore Photography and Video and see for yourself how amazing he is!
