We love working with fun, creative couples who desire an artistic documentation of their wedding day!!!
Having worked with over 400 couples while sharing their unique and special day; I know that no two weddings are alike. The challenge of capturing a couple's personal style and touch is what keeps me so inspired year after year. I love photographing weddings. A wedding combines everything I enjoy about being a photographer with a photo-journalist's background. There's the history of the moment. The bride and groom are the "celebrities" of the day, the bridal party their "entourage". The D.J. creates the concert, the guests are the crowd. The precious moments that fill the day happen quickly but the ability to creatively capture them in a still image makes them last a lifetime; preserved for generations to come. Those are some of the reasons why I love being a wedding photographer!
Above all of that; sharing a wedding day is AWESOME FUN!! So let's talk about YOUR wedding day!!

My fiancé and I went to a friends wedding where Louie was the photographer, he did an AMAZING job so we decided to use him for our own in October. Louie did our engagement session the previous October and it turned out wonderful. We've never felt so relaxed and had a great time. He never rushed us through anything and had some great ideas for the location we chose. We feel like it is important to have someone who has a wide background in order to have great pictures. If you're looking for someone that keeps you relaxed, having a good time, keeps you always in the loop, and keeps you laughing, Louie is your guy!
Our wedding photos were phenomenal. It took little to no time to receive our beautiful images. Louie is easy to work with and very down to earth and always answering whatever questions you may have. I really enjoyed working with him as did my wedding party. Don’t spend $1500+ on other photographers, Louie is your guy.

I had the privilege to have Lou photograph many of my biggest life events. From sporting events, to prom, to senior pictures, to engagement pictures and my wedding, Lou has not only captured my greatest memories, but was professional and fun to work with in the process. He creates images with clarity and beauty and listens to all requests. He make sure to keep the sessions fun and relaxing and he is super easy going. He has always exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend him for any and all events!

We cannot speak highly enough of Louie and his work. From the first meeting, it was clear that this was exactly who we needed taking photos for our wedding. As you can see from the reviews, his portfolio and on here, his work is wonderful. But in addition to that (and just as important) his personality is great. He kept us laughing and relaxed - even during our engagement session, which was done on a cold, rainy, windy Chicago morning. He was flexible enough to allow for us to move the date and location of our shoot (even though we still ended up with gross weather), and our photos turned out GREAT! His communication is absolutely top notch, and we are very much looking forward to working with him even more. If you're looking for someone who will keep you smiling, keep you relaxed and give you GREAT work without breaking your bank account, Louis Himes IS YOUR GUY!
