About

On WeddingWire since 2015

The Still Life Photography is a Chicago, Illinois based company that can capture the most memorable moments from your big day.

When we started Wedding Photography in 2013, we had the idea of creating wedding packages for clients that would not only be affordable, but beautiful as well. We wanted it to be a "no-brainer" for clients everywhere, with any type of budget.

The Still Life Photography was created then, and we have been growing larger ever since!

We do not outsource, which makes our company unique. You will be working with Nicole and Jay from START TO FINISH.... there is no one hired to "work your wedding for us" or "edit your day" - it's always us. Even in an email or on the phone, it will always be one of us. We find developing a trustworthy relationship with clients is essential in creating an unforgettable wedding day that will not only run smoothly, but clients will feel more comfortable knowing its one of us there.

The wedding photos we dreamed of...

Nicole with The Still Life Photography is incredibly talented. I am still in awe of our wedding photos. We have received nothing but praise and compliments at how beautiful the photos turned out. She is flexible and fast on her feet to take the perfect photos. She was outside with us in the middle of January in downtown Chicago. She made the whole experience quick, easy and painless. And most importantly, the pictures turned out beautifully. I mean above and beyond what I had imagined. Nicole was open to suggestions and was just overall great with dealing with a large party. I keep looking at the photos - I am so grateful for all of the photos and her hard work.

The real mvp

Seriously Nicole was the real MVP. We had a small wedding 12/11/21 and we were on a difficult budget. I spent a long time looking for photographers and finally found Nicole. I reached out to her and got her pricing. It was a littler higher than our budget and I let her know. She worked with me on our day of schedule and got the price down based on how long we would really need her. I was extremely grateful for her help on both of these things. Once onsite, Nicole was incredible. She was so fast yet so detail oriented. Super pleasant and awesome to talk with. We got all our photos we wanted plus more and they turned out amazing. Because our wedding was the last of the year, we got a quick sneak peak in a few days and ALL the photos in 12 days! 12 days!!! I am obsessed with them, all I can do is look at smile. I let her know that I prefer candids and she included a bunch of random photos that other people might called unfinished but I adored. Thank you so much Nicole! We will treasure these photos always!!

Nicole & Jay were so much fun to work with and very easy to communicate with.

I would absolutely recommend Nicole & Jay to anyone! Nicole was our main point of communication. She was prompt in responding to emails, texts, questions—all things stressed out brides may need to know. When we first met with her she made us feel comfortable and she was super eager to listen to our vision for our day. For engagement pictures she was flexible since we had some weather issues and willing to do whatever we wanted. On our wedding day both her and Jay worked together and man are they a great team! They were so fun and easy to work with. Their cost is way less than other photographers for everything included and for such great quality and service it would be silly not to book them! Thank you guys!!

I always look forward to being on the same wedding vendor team as The Still Life. Mrs. Vega is professional yet personable. She has a great eye for capturing those candid moments that speak volumes. The Still Life and I, as a wedding officiant, also coordinate to ensure those special moments of the ceremony aren't missed. Your big day is in good hands with these wedding professionals.

What an incredible pleasure it was working with Nicole and Jay when they flew in to NYC. They were lovely, laid back, and brought a fantastic energy to the day. We were super impressed when they would edit a photo or two on the fly to show to the bride and groom. Their photos are incredible. We can't wait to work with them again.
