About Maura Black Photography

Wedding days are incredible. From the hours of preparation leading up to the ceremony to the last glass of champagne poured as the reception winds down, weddings are so. Much. Fun.

My philosophy on wedding photography is simple: I aim to capture the love, laughter and authenticity that fills the very special day that two people decide to belong to each other forever. To immortalize those moments, both big and little, that you will cherish forever from an artistic, documentary perspective. I believe that these little moments are what your legacy is comprised of. Let's capture them and let's celebrate!

    We booked Maura for our small Chicago ceremony this summer with just our parents, before our big family & friends party in Orlando in January. We chose her for her photojournalistic style, great detail shots, and because we liked working with an actual person instead of a larger company that would just contract photographers.

    She sent us a thorough questionnaire and we emailed back and forth a bit about what we were looking for. We reached out again a few times just before the wedding to make sure everyone was on the same page, and she actually seemed almost too confident - more so than I was! This was my second marriage, and I had a lot of regrets from the first time around for not asking my photographer for more specific shots, so I was worried I might forget something. Fortunately, I had nothing to worry about!

    She showed up a little early with a super positive and excited attitude and got right to work! We gave her a short list of the shots we were looking for and talked about some of the locations in our apartment that would probably be good to include. She got it all and MORE! We asked her to get a picture of my new in-laws' hands/rings together, since they had just celebrated their 40th anniversary, and I can't wait to frame it and surprise them with it!

    She has such an artistic eye and is so personable that you feel like you're chatting with a friend. PLUS we got our pictures back within just a few weeks!!! I honestly couldn't be happier with her and her work! :)

    We feel so lucky to have found Maura to photograph our wedding last October. After our initial coffee meeting, we knew she was going to be a great fit for us and she did not disappoint! Before the wedding, she did an excellent job communicating ideas and guiding expectations, so we knew exactly how to structure our day to get all the shots that we wanted. On the day of, she did a superb job managing all the planned group photos (most impressive with our extensive immediate families), documented the preparations and ceremony beautifully, and braved the wind to get some absolutely gorgeous photos of my husband and I on Lake Michigan. At the reception, she captured all of the important moments, as well as some great candid shots of our family and friends that were among the highlights of our extensive photo gallery. Nearly my entire family remarked how easy it was to work with Maura, and all were impressed by her friendliness and enthusiasm throughout the day! My husband and I truly cannot recommend Maura highly enough – from planning the day to capturing moments big and small to delivering our beautiful photo gallery, she was a true professional and absolute joy to work with!
