    Amazing experience - can't recommend enough

    My husband and I worked with Tim for our wedding on 12/3/22 and we could not be happier! His work speaks for itself, he is such a talented photographer and has a great eye.
    On the day of our wedding, Tim did an excellent job of getting all the shots we wanted and more. We had a Catholic ceremony and he captured all of the important moments and was able to do so comfortably without a second shooter. We appreciated his enthusiasm throughout the day, especially as we took photos outside in 20-degree weather. We are thrilled with how the photos turned out and how he captured all of the emotions on our wedding day. We cannot recommend him enough!

    What a Pro

    Tim photographed our wedding day from first look to the reception. He captured the vibe and adapted to each situation. Tim and his assistant were with my wife and I by car and on foot. They helped balance us out. We were able to get comfortable and forget about the cameras (and tight timeline). Tim asily moved along our friends and family during pre-ceremony pics, and it we actually made up time. Tim captured a ton great moments, especially between our two families. He knew how to blend and follow the energy of the room.

    Ideal Wedding Photographer Experience

    Tim was absolutely wonderful to work with for our wedding. From the outset, I let Tim know that my husband and I are introverted people who are don't feel super comfortable in the spotlight. Tim not only made us feel comfortable, he actually made the photography experience enjoyable for us. He is laidback, organized, and clearly passionate about photography. The pictures came out beautifully. Not to mention, his services are much more cost effective than other photographers we looked at. I would enthusiastically recommend Tim to anyone with photography needs in Chicago.
