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!

    Maura has been so great, I don't even know where to begin!

    Maura has been so great, I don't even know where to begin! She was fun to talk on the phone with for initial information, and easy to schedule our engagement shoot with. (We had to reschedule our shoot sort of last minute, and she was incredibly understanding and easy to reschedule with.) During the actual shoot, we felt like were just hanging out with one of our friends for an hour. We also had our dog with us, who is typically a bit anxious of strangers and reactive to other dogs, so we didn't know how long we'd have her out with us. Luckily she behaved the whole time, and loved Maura too. We fully expected to get our images back in 2 weeks, but we got our "Sneak Peak" within 2 days, then the whole album only 3 days after that! Truly incredible! We know she'll do an amazing job with our wedding photos next June!

    Absolutely Incredible

    Maura is worth her weight in gold! She made our wedding day an absolute dream, that we get to look back on now for the rest of our lives. I came across Maura after a hefty search of wedding photographers. The big companies charged way too much and lacked originality. I came across Maura's website one late night and absolutely fell in love with her work. She had exactly the "vibe" I was looking for; journalistic photos with attention to detail. I booked a meeting with Maura to meet her in person and it went splendidly. I knew within 5 minutes of meeting her that she was the right photographer for us. We were hoping she would also say, yes, to us, as we had a whole weekend of events for her to capture...two ceremonies and a reception. Luckily, Maura, said yes to shooting our wedding weekend, and we couldn't have been happier. Maura is super flexible and accommodating. We met with her twice before our wedding to hash out the details. On the day of our wedding Maura spent the morning with me and my bridesmaids capturing the details of getting ready and the limo ride to the venue. We asked for a second photographer who spent the morning with the groom and groomsmen. Once at the venue we had both photographers capturing the special moments of the first look and our ceremony. It happened to be bitterly cold the weekend of our wedding, so our plan of taking more photos outside needed to be changed. Maura had the perfect spot in mind for doing photos indoors, The Chicago Cultural Center. These photos turned out INCREDIBLE. I loved the dramatic, art-deco feel they have. Back at the reception, Maura went off on her own to capture shots of our decor, and guests mingling at cocktail hour. During the reception she captured all the right shots of our first dance, speeches, and our guests on the dance floor.
    I've recommended Maura to anyone I know who is getting married. She is so professional, down to earth, and fun. She knows how to handle a wedding party and make everyone feel comfortable. Without a doubt, Maura is the best vendor decision I made for my wedding day!
