Danny and Sylk were amazing from the beginning to the end. Sylk created a timeline for us to follow that made sense. She talked us through our concerns because we feel awkward in front of a camera. Let me tell you the day of our wedding I felt like my friends were taking my picture. Ive never been so relaxed in a moment that should be so stressful. Ive always loved the beautiful pictures they take and to be behind the scenes and in front of the lens was awesome. All throughout the night they would explain the shot to us and tell us where to go. If youre looking for an amazing duo and stunning pictures look no further. We just got married sunday and I cant wait to see their work.Sent on 10/22/2019
Sylk and Danny thank you for being part of an amazing group of vendors that made our wedding so perfect! Thank you for being patient with all the requests throughout the night. We love you guys!!
Sylk Martí Weddings's reply:Thank you for your kind words. We loved capturing your wedding. We look forward to capturing many more moments in your life. Love, Sylk & Danny

Just the best in the business!
5 stars are not enough for this DYNAMIC DUO. We began our adventure in the lovely island of Bermuda on a very hot morning at the beach. Sylk Marti was there to capture every single moment of that wonderful day and took the most scenic and captivating photos I have ever seen. They displayed relentless energy even through the un-bearable heat and produced the most amazing photos of our wonderfully exotic fairy tale wedding.
We continued our adventure 3 weeks later where we gathered with 130 of our family and closest friends to celebrate. Prior to the reception we encountered a few mishaps and just when I thought my day was ruined, the super heroes of Sylk Marti Studios swooped in and saved the day. I, in my crazy state, accidentally forgot to pick up my bouquet and boutonnière from the florist. Sylk quickly ran out and returned with a bouquet and boutonnière. I, then realized that our cake had not been delivered and learned there had been a mix up on the date with the baker. What was I gonna do without a cake on my wedding day??? Well, let me tell you what my super hero photographer, Sylk did. She quickly and magically arranged the delivery of a cake that was ready and on display just in time for the cake cutting.
So, not only are they Chicago's most talented photographers, they are miracle workers. They kept the night moving smoothly as they wowed our guests with their amazing chemistry and charm. Danny's humorous and charismatic personality had all our guest willing and ready to take wonderful photos for a lifetime of memories and Sylk made sure that all the photos we requested were taken and all of our guests were included. Sylk Marti was ready at every step to capture every single fun filled moment of the night. My husband and I are thrilled that we chose Sylk Marti Studios to be part of our special day. Thank you guys!! YOU ROCK! Much love and success to you both! Lissy and Steve Rivero

They make you feel like Family
First and foremost you will not find a photographer more down to earth and humble as these two right here. This Dynamic duo of photographers will make any day of your celebration one of the best memories going forward in your life. We were blessed to have these 2 for our wedding and I can say for my wife and I that we made the best choice and there are no regrets. They capture the moments that matter and transform them into a work of art.Sent on 12/06/2018

Sylk and Danny are truly masters at their craft, they made sure to get every photo we wanted and then some! They are very professional and made sure to accommodate to anything we needed. Our day truly was the best day of our lives and Sylk and Danny captured more than we could have ever anticipated. It's so amazing to be able to relive our wedding through the pictures they took. They truly care about each couple they work with and want to give you the pictures you deserve for your big day. We will be using Sylk Marti for any future events that we need a photographer for and recommend them to anyone who wants the best in business working for them on their wedding day.Sent on 11/21/2017

Sylk and Danni are amazing! First they welcomed me as a individual, a woman getting married, not another client. They wanted to know me. Then my wedding day, my family and so so forth. They are patient, creative, compassionate and consistent and very energetic. I feel like I met a new friend. Forever grateful and I will use them again at the drop of a dimeSent on 06/18/2017
Sylk Martí Weddings's reply:So honored to have captured your day. You two were simply amazing. Thank you for your kind words. Sylk & Danny

Tomorrow will make it 2 years since I married my bestfriend and thanks to SylkMarti I have the most amazing memories captured in my wedding photos.

Thank you guys so much and I will definitely use you again for vow renewals and special occasions..
Stephanie · Married on 09/23/2016
Sylk and Danny are wedding SAVIORS! We worked with a different photographer, but we were unhappy with the engagement photos he shot. My Maid of Honor was working with Sylk and Danny for her wedding, so we booked them to redo our engagement photos. Sylk and Danny drove from Chicago to Milwaukee and then drove with my now-husband, Matt, and I to Madison, Wisconsin to shoot our engagement photos. Matt and I were absolutely blown away by how awesome our engagement photos turned out! AWESOME does not even do those pictures justice. After our previous experience with the other photographer, we were nervous. Sylk and Danny put us at complete ease and captured us so perfectly. We spent several hours in Madison and although Sylk and Danny had a long ride back to Chicago in front of them, they never rushed us and were so particular about getting each shot just right. From finding the best, most flattering angle, finding the best lighting, to adjusting our outfits and my hair, Sylk and Danny were nothing but caring, thoughtful, friendly and EXPERT photographers. As I think back to our engagement photos, I can't pick a favorite, that's how amazing they are (I'll post a few here!). Another amazing thing about this experience is that since we were weeks behind on sending our Save the Dates because of the other photographer, Sylk and Danny rearranged their schedule to travel to Madison with us and turned around edited photos in just a few days. We were blown away by their flexibility and level of customer service. You really can't get better than them.Sent on 05/12/2017
Dang Wedding Wire and their word count limits. I need space to say how freaking amazing this duo is! Check out my Yelp review and photos! :)
PS. Hurry! Hire Sylk and Danny, you will not regret it!
Sylk Martí Weddings's reply:You guys were unforgettable. The love radiated everywhere. Stephanie you didn't skip a beat. Every detail was flawless. Thank you for trusting us. Sylk & Danny

Frank · Married on 05/29/2016
where do I begin! Danny & Sylk are like Jordan and Pippen in their primes... Aside from being professional and artistic they are both absolutely in love with what they do and the quality of work shows it. I felt like I knew them for years on the day of my wedding. Very accomodating, very tentative and above all they made my beautiful bride and I feel like we were the only people in the world. I was very fortunate to have been able to experience working with them. I shared many special moments with Danny and Sylk on that day. We laughed and we cried together. I cannot say enough about their artistic value. Very important in my opinion especially when your wedding photos are something you will want to look back at endless times. Both Danny and Sylk are amazing at what they do. I recommend them to anyone looking for the perfect photographer team to capture any important event. Above all I know that working with them will go beyond just that. They are both wonderful people who I plan to continue to have in my life for years to come. Thank you Danny and Sylk for all you have doneSent on 06/15/2016
Sylk Martí Weddings's reply:Thank you Frank! You will always have a special spot in our hearts. The day was simply perfect, from beginning to end. We love you and Judy.
Cinthia · Married on 05/21/2016
Sylk and Danny were absolutely amazing on my wedding day. They were working together to get the perfect shot along with Vesna (their assistant). I have yet to see the album but the few pictures I have seen are absolutely stunning. Sylk did my Boudoir pictures as well and my husband was blown away. We are so happy we found the dynamic duo to capture our special day! Thank you Sylk, Danny and Vesna!Sent on 06/22/2016

Danny · Married on 05/21/2016
When my wife and I started planning our wedding and thinking about vendors, I knew photography was important but I was honestly more interested in a great DJ, a good looking tux, and a delicious cake (I pushed for red velvet, a "moist" red velvet...I still have dreams about that cake). We planned our wedding for a little over a year, and guess what, the big day flew by in the blink of an eye. What were we left with at the end of it all? Pictures. A wedding album. A USB flash drive filled with photos. You know what I'm talkin' bout? Lemme put it another way:Sent on 09/09/2016
Photography in my opinion is the most important vendor when it comes to wedding day, and on our big day, Sylk and Danny hit a home run. Like, bases loaded, bottom of the ninth, down 3-0 type of home run...that's called a walk off grand slam.
As the groom (and handsome prince) on wedding day, I really appreciated their passion for what they do. They are meticulous with every shot they take--they would make sure the stage was set, my wife's makeup/dress looked great, and that I had no gum in my mouth or bulge in my trousers (i.e. keys or cellphone in pockets, as this can ruin a great photo). Sylk and Danny worked together flawlessly, and their process of capturing our story on our big day was perfect. I would strongly recommend them for your wedding photography needs.
I wish I could show you our dope wedding album. Thanks to Sylk Marti Weddings, my wife and I now have beautiful art for the rest of our lives.

Sylk Martí Weddings's reply:Danny, We are totally humbled by your words. We can't thank you enough. We loved your wedding and will always have you and Cinthia in our hearts.
Daisy · Married on 01/16/2016
My husband and I had the winter wedding of our dreams this past January, a dream that required driving over 150 miles across Chicago and Burbs as well as freezing cold temperatures to pull off! I knew finding a photographer for our day was not going to be easy as it would require so much travelling. I met with several photographers and felt lost in their guidelines and restrictions. Sylk made our first meeting seem easy and exciting, I could feel the energy come off her as she was genuinely excited about our winter wedding and the endless possibilities to capture beautiful winter wedding photography. I left the meeting ecstatic and moments later we hired them! We are so grateful to have selected Sylk Marti Weddings as our photographers, they're hard work, attention to detail, energy and teamwork is truly magnificent!! Sylk and Danny dedicated they're full attention to us and capturing every moment of our wedding. Our day started early in the morning and ended late into the evening and not once did i see them slow down. As the temperatures dipped they packed us with heat packets and blankets until we accomplished those beautiful pictures my family and I will cherish for generations to come! Endless thanks!!Sent on 05/29/2016

Delia · Married on 11/21/2015
Our experience with Sylk Marti Studios blows away any expectations we had! We could not have chosen a better TEAM to work with on such a busy, chaotic, memorable, unforgettable and special day in our lives! The way they mixed fun, business and professionalism was perfect! We had a destination wedding in Punta Cana and they captured every moment from the arrival of our guests, welcome dinner, wedding day, post wedding adventures and everything in between! And during all of it not one time did it feel like they were "just the photographers". It felt like they were part of our wedding party.Sent on 10/13/2016
After looking at our wedding photos we were stunned with how well all of our pictures turned out. They were amazing!! We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for professional photographers. They love what they do and they do a phenomenal job at it! The quality of their work shows in every picture! Thank you Sylk and Danny for putting our story and memories into beautiful pictures.

My experience with Daniel and Sylk has been phenomenal. The moment I walked into their studio, I was greeted with such a warmth welcoming, literally felt like family. I had a wonderful and enjoyable experience taking new headshot photos to revamp my company and LinkedIn profile. I can't thank Danny and Sylk enough for all of their help and the process was so smooth. I definitely recommend them for all of your upcoming photoshoots, wether it's for yourself, couples, family, weddings etc. They do it all and their quality is beyond extraordinary. If your going to support a business, I definitely recommend Sylk Marti Studios to be your ONLY option when it comes to amazing photography.Sent on 11/09/2017

A · Married on 09/26/2015
After dating for a several years, we decided to have a gay wedding here in the United States. It is difficult to plan everything especially when you want to keep lasting memories of every detail. Wedding photography is the most important part of the wedding. Pictures go with you and your family everywhere you go. That was when we found Sylk Marti Studios. From the moment we connected with them, I didn’t feel like I was doing a business transaction, but rather as if I was speaking to someone from my own house. I felt so comfortable with them. They have an exceptional customer service model and provide spectacular attention to every detail. They explained everything and surpassed all of our many expectations. The day of the wedding arrived… we were so nervous, after all, this was a big decision to unite as one as Husband and Husband for the rest of our lives. Sylk and Danny kept impressing us with their attention and delicate care, they were so punctual and presented themselves in such a professional and friendly manner. They took incredible images of us. They did the impossible to make sure we had the images we wanted. Honestly, the best of the best! They insisted we had our “alone” moment so that we can enjoy each other in the intimacy and beauty of photography as they captured the moments. This was priceless! The final result of the images look like a fairy tale to us. I recommend Sylk Marti Studios with all assurance. If you have the highest standards or are just a simple person, rest assured you will get what you want and will be completely satisfied with this team.Sent on 06/08/2016
Sylk Martí Weddings's reply:Thank you AJ and JC. You guys were amazing. Your wedding was beautiful. Loved being part of your day.

I don't think I can say enough good things about SylkMarti Weddings. They were everything we could have wanted and more in photographers! Sylk and Danny are phenomenal at what they do, you can see the heart and soul that goes into each photograph they take. They are exceptional at communicating with their clients. They always got back to my husband and I very quickly and went out of their way to make sure we were always informed of any new happenings or ideas. Sylk & Danny did our engagement photos and our wedding photos and they are all so AMAZING! Every shot is better than the next. Once we had viewed our engagement photos I knew that our wedding photos would be perfect. On our big wedding day Sylk & Danny made my husband and I feel so comfortable and at ease the entire day from beginning to end and got the shots done quickly so we could also enjoy our wedding day, which is definite plus. After the wedding it was not long at all until we got to see our wedding photos and boy can I tell you we were blown away by them all, I cried looking through them all as Sylk showed them to my husband and I.Sent on 05/26/2016
SylkMarti's delivery of the final package exceeded our expectations. We absolutely love our photos and can feel ourselves reliving the moment as we look back on them every time. If you're looking for a professional photographer who really cares about their clients, their work, and the overall experience, then SylkMarti Weddings are the ones to call! I would definitely recommend them!

Joanna · Married on 09/04/2015
Where do I begin? From the moment my husband and I met Sylk and Danny we felt an instant connection. Sylk, with her ultimate professionalism and Danny with his sense of humor and ability to bring levity to our meetings. As our wedding day drew closer, Sylk and Danny met with us frequently to discuss our wants, as well as their vision to best capture the biggest day of our lives together. Once our big day came Danny and Sylk were better than advertised!! They were everywhere and undetectable for most of the evening. Their ability to move around like ninjas was the reason we were able to get such amazing shots. If you want to be wowed and have your memories captured by utter professionals than look no further and hire SylkMartí to handle your wedding photography needs.Sent on 05/31/2016

Ruben · Married on 08/23/2015
For the money, this was an A+ experience from start to finish. Upon my meeting with Sylk and Danny, I knew right away they were the perfect duo for my special day. Both exhibited passion and excitement for their profession. That same excitement and passion went into the planning for my wedding. The fact they made my experience personal, and custom tailored to my needs, spoke volumes. Further, throughout the planning process, the channel of communication was always open. For communication is a significant factor in planning any special event. Today, my wife and I continue to look at our wedding photos and she still becomes very emotional. I know SylkMarti Photography was the PERFECT choice! The professionalism Sylk and Danny bring to the table and the magic that goes into their work, is no wonder why many couples have not hesitated to fly them to various countries for their special day. If your looking for quality, passion, professionalism and overall value; look no further, SylkMarti Photography is your choice...Let them tell your story - You won't regret it.Sent on 09/10/2016

Sylk and Danny were amazing from our first call, to the final shot, to receiving our pictures. They were able to capture our most intimate moments and really were detailed-oriented. At one point Sylk was in a bush to capture a special picture of me along with my huge bridal party. And Danny was on the floor at one point making sure the lighting was just perfect. This dynamic duo along with their assistants know what they are doing. I felt comfortable with them, never pressured, and they were hilarious even after an 11 hour day. You can't go wrong with SylkMarti Weddings! Book Book Book!Sent on 06/24/2016

Kristina · Married on 07/11/2015
Being a bride, bridesmaid and maid of honor, I've had to interact with a lot of "behind the scenes" people. The photographer, the DJ, the wedding planner, etc. The interaction I had with Sylkia and Danny has been the best by a long shot. They are not only experts in their field but they have a genuine concern and passion for what they do. They sincerely want every bride and every groom and every guest to be happy and they are the perfect team to capture that happiness through their lens. Sylkia has such a motherly, caring presence that you feel like you've known her your entire life. She takes every concern/issue into consideration and puts your best interests forward. Danny is extremely creative with his camera shots and wants to make sure he catches every moment. You will not be disappointed in this dynamic duo. Book them today!!!Sent on 06/02/2016
