Absolute best photographers- HIRE THEM
Andrea and Phil are a phenomenal duo to work with. We began working with them several months ago to plan our 50 person wedding, however plans changed due to COVID-19. They were extremely understanding and flexible. Once we were ready to plan our super intimate elopement (of just us), they helped us brainstorm and plan for our special day. We eloped at Starved Rock and hiked into St Louis Canyon to have our ceremony. Phil and Andrea were a blast to work with, they listened to what was important to us to have pictures of, and also made everything so seamless. We both were not that excited to take photos for a long period of time, but the McConvilles made the process fun and quick. They have a great eye for finding the right light and setting.Sent on 06/16/2020
On top of their amazing personalities and photography skills, they have an awesome studio for rent which is an ideal place to get ready. My husband got ready in Phil’s office and I had the main area to myself to have my hair and makeup done and enjoy some drinks and snacks while getting ready. Overall it was truly a magical and whimsical day that we will never forget. They truly went above and beyond for us, and we will never ever forget all that they did.
Also Kasha from Camp Bride worked phenomenally with them. These 3 truly knocked it out of the park for us. They all felt like old friends, I would recommend them to anyone and everyone seeking photographers for ANY occasion.

wonderful people, great photos
Andrea and Phil photographed our August wedding in Lake Geneva. Andrea was instrumental in building a detailed timeline of the day that made sure everything ran smoothly. You spend more time with your photographers than anyone else on the big day. Andrea and Phil are such kind, friendly people that it was a joy to have them with us all day. I am grateful for how they both put us at ease. Not to mention, the photos are great!Sent on 12/10/2018
McConville Studio offers so much to their clients: An amazing team of photographers who are truly talented and just great to be around, incredible editing skills (something not every photographer has), and a PHENOMENAL final product. We have had the opportunity to work with photographers from all over the US and they are at the top of our recommendation list. Also, as a wedding cinematographer, having a photographer who knows how to work well with a filmmaker not only makes our job easier and more fun, but makes the couple's wedding film that much better. Their constant attention to not only getting the fantastic photos their couples want, but also understanding that it isn't ONLY about the photos proves how much McConville Studio truly cares about their clients. Talent and Heart, What more could you want?!
