    Best. Decision. Ever!!

    After being in and attending several weddings, I can truly say that Phil and Andrea stand out among the rest. We were so incredibly fortunate to have found them both and it was the best decision we could have made.

    Phil has an amazing vision for photography and photos and his work is breathtaking. I’ve never been so happy with pictures before and I still can’t get over our engagement photos. I can’t even imagine what our wedding pictures will be like. He didn’t miss a second and used every opportunity to get the shots that we wanted done.

    Andrea ran the show. She kept us on time and made the entire day run smoothly. She bustled my dress, gave me a bandaid, and took out my veil. She knew us as a couple, organized our shot list and made the most of our time together. She even ran around with sparklers several times to get a picture I really wanted and offered to help me pee.

    They are one of a kind and worth every penny. You won’t make a better decision than McConville Studio!

    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.
    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!

    I had the pleasure of working with Phil and Andrea McConville for both my engagement session and my wedding. My husband and I couldn’t have made a better decision. Phil and Andrea were very fun to work with. My husband hates taking pictures but he enjoyed every second of picture taking with these two. They make the whole experience fun and never stressful. They reply quickly to any questions you may have and they really know how to make your day special. Their pictures come out so beautifully and they have a true talent of catching beautiful candid moments. Also, there is something extra cute about having your big day photographed by a husband and wife team. You can feel their love and positive energy as soon as you enter the same room as these two. I will always recommend this husband and wife duo!

    I'm so thankful my husband and I chose McConville Studios for our wedding. We have the perfect mix of traditional, unique, and candid photos of our special day. They were professional, creative, and gave us hundreds of beautiful photos we'll cherish forever.

    Kris and I are so happy that we chose McConville for our wedding day!!! We had such a great experience with Phil and Andrea and they helped keep us feel relaxed during a hectic day!

    I love that Andrea took time to put together an itinerary to help all the photos run smoothly and to make sure all of our special moments were captured! Thank you both again so much! We can't wait to see the final results :)

    Phil & Andrea are amazing at what they do. Our engagement pictures turned out amazing out at Starved Rock. We just received our wedding photos back and I can't stop looking at our photos, they are so good! Andrea helped bussel my dress and well as help with many other things that day. They are an amazing duo to have on your wedding day and they go with the flow on your wedding day. My crazy family has given me compliments on how much they loved our photographers. I wouldn't have chosen anyone else!

    Phil came to take pictures at my wedding alongside my photographer Camron Windy. Both were wonderful, understanding, patient, and had great ideas. I can't thank them enough for taking beautiful pictures on my wedding day with such a BIG family!

    We had McConville studio photograph our wedding, and I couldn't be happier with our choice! They were very professional from the beginning of our engagement and I felt like I had an extra 'friend' by my side all day to help take care of the little things, like my dress, my hair, etc. They were so easy to work with and very creative with our pictures. This studio is defiantly worth every penny because you can't find quality like them just anywhere!

    We booked the Mcconvilles for our engagement and wedding pictures. We were EXTREMELY blessed to have them as our photographers. They are talented beyond words! I would recommend them in a heartbeat! The clarity and color in their pictures is unreal. They took all our requests into consideration and guided us through everything. They made being in front of the camera so easy. They are AMAZING photographers and even better people.

    Phil and Andrea were wonderful. They really listened to everything my husband and I wanted for our day. They dealt with the craziness of the day beautifully. Including a flower girl who was NOT happy. Their fun, light-hearted attitude really helped set the tone for the whole wedding party--which made the day more relaxed than I had expected. The photos turned out beautiful, and I always get compliments when people see them.

    Phil McConville took our engagement and wedding photos. Phil was the perfect fit for our wedding. He was relaxed and professional at the same time. I love all the pictures he shot, even the silly ones we did. I get a lot of compliments on them to this day.

    My husband and I had Nicole and Karen from McConville Studio photograph our wedding and we wouldn't have it any other way. They were both very accommodating and made our day stress free for the both of us(Nicole had to even sew a button on my husband's tux when it popped off during pictures!). We are soo excited to get our proofs back in a couple weeks and can't thank McConville Studio enough.

    Finding the right photographer was extremely important to my fiance and I. Our day would go by in a blink, but we would always have the photos. We could not have been more lucky to find Andrea and Phil at McConville Studio. They are extremely efficient and professional but also very sweet and personable. They made the day hassle free and the product was beyond our expectations. Now we have beautiful photos that captured the day perfectly and great memories of working with them as well. They were the perfect choice.

    We loved our experience with the McConville's! My husband saw their portfolios and said "That is the one!" They were great to work with the day of the wedding, and provided help for a smooth and great wedding! They knew the Starved Rock area well, and were able to move us into one great location to the next! We had a few communication issues before the wedding that made me a bit nervous, but everything came together just perfect! Pictures came back exactly 6 weeks after the wedding.
