Look no further!
I am so happy I found TimTab Studios! The best wedding planning advice I was given was to work with a great wedding photographer and I made sure I worked with the best! While I was living in Florida, I phone interviewed 10+ Chicago wedding photographers and knew Tim was the right person for the job after we chatted on the phone. He was so personable and listened to our wedding day vision. His wedding packages were perfect for our needs and he was able to add on a couple of things we requested. The first time we met was for our engagement shoot and he was amazing to work with! He made us feel so comfortable and kept us genuinely laughing throughout the entire shoot. I am definitely a detail oriented bride and Tim was able to capture the perfect moments between us. Unfortunately, due to Covid19, our big wedding celebration was postponed. However, Tim was still able to work with us and offer services for our small 11-person wedding in July. That day went by so fast! Before the wedding I sent him a list of pictures I thought would be great to capture and he made sure we captured those shots at our wedding. Tim made sure we always looked our best and offered great stylistic recommendations. My family greatly enjoyed working with Tim and loved seeing the wedding pictures he took on our wedding day. TimTab Studios is so wonderful and very professional to work with! I highly recommend Tim to all wedding couples looking for gorgeous and timeless wedding pictures that you’ll cherish forever! Our big wedding celebration is in 2022 and we can’t wait to work with Tim again. I know I’ll be working with him in the future to capture other life milestones! Thank you, Tim!Sent on 08/22/2020

Tim Tab Studios for Wedding Photography
We hired Tim and his wife Bethany as our photographers for our November wedding and I cannot express how amazing of a job they did. They made the entire day so comfortable and captured the most amazing shots of the very special moments throughout our day. Tim and Bethany have a way of bringing the emotions you are feeling to light in pictures and I will forever be grateful to have SO many amazing photos to look back on. Would highly recommend.Sent on 12/18/2019

Tim and Bethany are top notch photographers and people. Their work is beautiful, of course, but their demeanors set them apart from other photographers. They're fun and easy to work with and make wedding days go swimmingly.Sent on 06/28/2019

It was such a pleasure to have Tim and Bethany as our photographers for our engagement shoot and wedding day. Not only did the pictures turn out perfect, but they also ensured our wedding day was stress-free. When our transportation was significantly late, they rolled with the punches and managed to still get every photo we wanted in each location while maintaining a sense of calm and confidence that helped us not worry. They delivered a set of preview photos within a few days of the wedding which was so exciting to see and share with our guests long before we thought we’d be able to. Overall, I would recommend Tim & Bethany to anyone knowing they are so talented, kind, and fun to work with! Thank you for making our wedding day even more perfect.Sent on 06/28/2019

Gorgeous photos & so easy to work with!
We were lucky enough to book Tim & Bethany only a month out from our wedding, after our original photographer backed out. And boy, are we so glad we did!Sent on 07/04/2019
Tim & Bethany were absolutely fabulous to work with - so friendly, easy going, and absolute pros. In spite of not having shot a Milwaukee wedding before/not knowing the area, they captured gorgeous photos on the fly and made everyone feel so comfortable. It was really such a pleasure to work with them... I only wish we could do it again!
Memories of your wedding day will fade with the years to come, but photos last forever. We're so glad we trusted Tim & Bethany to capture these memories of our special day, and couldn't recommend them more.

They're the wedding photogs for wedding photogs
OH my gosh. Okay okay I got married April 7, 2019. I'm a wedding photographer. We hit up Tim and Bethany in a second, thank GOODNESS they had our date open.
Stop what you're doing on your research for a photographer right here. Look no further. Tim and Bethany are STELLAR and a half, I couldn't have asked for anything better. Amazing friends, and somehow as good if not better photographers. They care. SO creative. (I want to steal so many of their ideas) They were another one of our crew in half a second. I'm telling you, your search ends now. Period. Just book them before it's too late I feel like they book nine years in advance now. Good luck.Sent on 08/19/2019

Beyond beautiful memories
Tim and Bethany are a dream come true and truly some of the best people we have ever worked with. Starting with our engagement photos, Tim worked with us to find the perfect locations and made sure we were completely comfortable for the first session. We didn’t know what to expect going in, but it was such a fun day and the pictures turned out absolutely gorgeous! He seriously thinks of everything and takes some of the most beautiful photos I have ever seen. He captured our happiness and excitement perfectly at the time of our engagement.
Organizing and planning for the wedding day with Tim was also extremely easy, he is super responsive and easy to work with! Also, aside from amazing photos, early in our planning process he gave us some vendor recommendations – many of which we ended up also working with who were equally as amazing.
For the main event, our wedding, Tim and Bethany truly went above and beyond. We were working with a tight timeline which included a first look with the groom, my dad, and my bridesmaids as well as two different getting ready locations, and a large wedding party. None of this phased them at all – our timeline was managed perfectly while still getting all the photos we wanted. They also helped us pick the perfect locations for our photos – the Ambassador balcony for our first look and a park for additional pictures that allowed us to be by the lake/city, and still close enough to the ceremony location. Tim and Bethany were also snapping pictures when we didn’t even know it! We have so many special photos of memories we didn’t even expect, like crossing the street to the church with my sister holding my dress and my sister helping my mom with her dress. They worked flawlessly throughout the event, and I hardly even knew they were there! Tim also made sure I got all the different friend shots I wanted and worked with my sister to round everyone up!
I look at our wedding portfolio at least twice a day and I will never get over how perfect the photos are. Thank you again Bethany and Tim for capturing our perfect day and us so magically! We will cherish these memories forever.

Best Photographers Ever!!!
There aren’t enough words to explain how much we loved Tim and Bethany!!! We had them do our engagement photos, rehearsal dinner and wedding – all of the photos were absolutely stunning. They managed to capture every moment perfectly and their photos embodied all of the emotions at each event. They got shots I hadn’t even known I had wanted/needed that completely blew me away when we saw the final portfolio. They brought back memories I didn’t even know I had, made everyone look beyond gorgeous and brought to life the most heart-warming and funniest parts of the evening. Photos aside, they made all three events so much fun while they were shooting – my husband and I instantly felt comfortable with both of them and were sure of ourselves/natural when photos were taken because of their expert guidance. Their professionalism and communication went above and beyond what we could have asked for. They listened to what mattered to us in the photos and executed accordingly, providing excellent recommendations for locations/poses along the way. I truly don’t think you can find a better photographer – I have and will continue to recommend them to everyone!!!Sent on 10/19/2018

Tim Tab Studios was absolutely incredible! Our pictures came out STUNNING from both the engagement shoot and the wedding! They are not only fun and great to work with, but professional, kind, and give awesome guidance on how to make the pictures the best they can be! I would recommend Bethany and Tim to anyone looking for magazine-esque stunning and original photos that really capture the day and your love in the most gorgeous way possible! :-)Sent on 09/19/2018

Tim and Bethany were truly incredible to work with. Their work speaks for itself - they are extremely talented photographers who excel at their work, and I could go on, and on, and on about that. Outside of the end product (which is amazing!), what stuck out the most throughout our planning process and the day of the wedding was the calming, reassuring presence that they carried with them throughout the day. I felt like they were there to not only capture the small, meaningful moments on camera, but also to ensure that those special moments were there for us to enjoy. They made the photography throughout the day feel fun and natural, and I truly believe we had a better, more perfect day because of their presence (not to mention we got some spectacular pictures out of the deal!). I cannot recommend them highly enoughSent on 06/28/2018
Jenna · Married on 04/14/2018
The fact that we picked our wedding date around Tim and Bethany's availability basically says it all! We were first recommended by two of my sister-in-law's friends that used Tim Tab for their own weddings and then after meeting them in person, we knew there was no point in searching further or meeting with other photographers. Tim and Bethany are easy-going and the most delightful to work with. Their chill yet organized vibe is exactly what we wanted (and needed!) on our wedding day. Our photos came out absolutely amazing and we couldn't be happier with the end results! The compliments continue to roll in to this day.Sent on 06/03/2018

Tim and Bethany photographed our wedding several years ago -- they such wonderful, warm, conscientious, professional photographers people. That was a 5 out of 5 experience for us, too. More recently, Tim shot some family photos of us for a Christmas card. The photos were BEAUTIFUL. Within a relatively short amount of time he took hundreds of photos in a beautiful, local nature preserve, and we couldn't be happier with the results. Our family and friends loved our Christmas card, and we ended up framing numerous shots to hang in our home. Tim and Bethany are amazing wedding photographers, but don't stop there -- they are incredible family photographers as well!Sent on 02/14/2018

Tim and Bethany were the photographers for my daughter's wedding this past July. We immediately knew upon meeting them that they understood what we were looking to capture. My daughter and son in law were having a wedding that was going to be filled with incredible energy and tradition. Tim and Bethany did not miss one moment of that memorable day. Their ability to capture family, friends and several toddlers/ children was incredible. We also wanted to have portraits taken at an alternative outdoor sight other than the wedding venue. Tim and Bethany scouted out several beautiful spots days before(on their own) at a near by university. From the "getting ready" to the end of the evening Tim and Bethany have given us a lifetime of gorgeous photographs to cherish. We can not be any happier.Sent on 09/11/2017

Looking back, booking Tim Tab Studios was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding! Not only are they extremely talented but Tim and his wife Bethany (they work as a pair) are both two of the sweetest people around! It rained on our wedding day, and at first I was stressed and disappointed about it. Tim and Bethany were so positive and cheered us on the entire day! They really eased our nerves about the rain and my goodness, the photos they got are breathtaking. Looking at all our photos, they were able to capture the spirit of the day, and everything looks so unique and beautiful! Rain included! Honestly these are pictures our family will treasure for years to come. During the whole planning process, I didn’t have a wedding planner and Tim was so so helpful with going over timing and the plan for the day. He was extremely patient with all of our questions/emails and went above and beyond showing us examples of his work that would help with all of our decision making. Also, my husband and I didn’t feel strongly about having engagement pictures done, but getting to meet Tim before the wedding day made us feel so much more comfortable with the whole process. And his pictures turned out so wonderful, that it gave us confidence that they would do absolutely fantastic job on our wedding day! So it is definitely a plus that they include it in their package. Overall, working with them was a dream, if you’re considering booking them- do it, you'll be happy you did it!Sent on 07/21/2017

Tim and Bethany were wonderful to work with and the end-product was incredible. I couldn't be happier with our photos, and photo was one of my most important vendor decisions. Would highly, highly recommend Tim Tab Studios!Sent on 02/14/2017
Nicole · Married on 08/12/2016
I don't know where to begin. Let's start with this: Picking Tim and Bethany was one of, if not the best, decision we made related to our wedding (other than getting married to each other :)).Sent on 10/13/2016
They were perfect! From start to finish I couldn't have asked for better photographers. My husband and I are not comfortable around the camera, but working with Tim and Bethany was great - they put us right at ease and felt like good friends from the get-go. We were able to laugh with them and cry with them. We were so happy to have them be a part of our day, yet during personal times (like the first look) we really couldn't even tell they were there. They struck a great balance. It also rained a ton on our wedding day and they again, put us at such ease. It was not a big deal to them, and it in turn, wasn't a big deal to us. They were able to capture everything they would have had it not rained.
One thing that was a big priority for us was capturing "moments" as opposed to rigid wedding photos. And they really did just that. Looking back at our wedding photos brings back so many memories - I think I cried more looking at the pictures afterwards than I did during the wedding itself. There were a lot of cultural aspects to our wedding too – my husband is Persian and I’m Lebanese – Tim and Bethany got it all. They did an amazing job with capturing certain aspects our wedding and our parents were more than pleased (which says a lot!)
Last thing - if price is an important factor to you, for what it’s worth, I think they're fairly priced. It was hard for my husband in particular to swallow the price, but I appreciated that Tim stuck to his word and didn't compromise the quality of his work (for example, we suggested 1 instead of 2 photographers but we had a 20 person wedding party - so, clearly, he was right).
Looking forward to seeing more beautiful wedding photos for years to come from Tim and Bethany!

Tim and Bethany were awesome. We are the type of people who do not like getting our pictures taken but they made us feel completely at ease. They also are extremely talented. I have already had several people text me to tell me that we have the best wedding photos they have ever seen. I would fully recommend working with them. They captured our venue (Art Institute of Chicago) perfectly!Sent on 07/19/2016
Alexandra · Married on 05/28/2016
My husband and I cannot say enough about Tim and Bethany. From our first meeting with Tim, we knew that we were going to get fantastic photos and have a great experience. We did our engagement session about a year before our wedding, coming to being nervous and super awkward, however Tim made us feel like rock stars. He didn't overly pose us, but gave us general direction to let us be goofy and silly with each other that we forgot we were being photographed.Sent on 06/13/2016
The day of the wedding, Bethany came to take getting ready photos of the girls. Her sweet and captivating spirit melted away all possible nerves. She was able to execute and get photos, all the while keeping me and the rest of the wedding party calm. Throughout the day, they were able to capture family, friends, and wedding party photos without it feeling forced and awkward. Again, they didn't pose us in unnatural and cheesy poses, but let us and everyone be themselves in front of the camera, capturing everyone's fun and natural personality. The photos of my husband and I turned out absolutely incredible. The lighting and editing was exquisite making us look like super models.
With their patience, eye for detail, and incredible kindness they were able to capture our day in every possible way we could have ever imagined. The images they captured will help us to relive the day forever. I cannot recommend Tim and Bethany more. They will truly go above and beyond to make your wedding day incredible.
Christina · Married on 05/21/2016
If I could give Tim and Bethany 10 stars out of 5 I would. We can't even begin to put into words how amazing they are. Not only do they put you at complete ease on one of the most stressful (but happy!!) mornings of your life, they make everyone in your family, bridal party, guests, etc., feel comfortable to smile in photos. Also, they are so quick to reply to emails, are patient, and are really all around experts and make your day run so incredibly smooth. Plus.. they are funny & nice! Which makes it way more fun to take pictures for hours!Sent on 05/28/2016
Also, their work is insane. They capture moments that you want to relive over and over again.. and then the ones you never got to see in-person on your wedding day which is more than you could ask for when you try to relive this day over and over in your mind.
I can;t recommend them enough. If you want the best of the best - book them.
Laura · Married on 02/20/2016
Tim and Bethany are as good as it gets! I remember seeing a wedding photo album and trying to figure out who took the photos. After reaching out to the person who posted the photos she informed me of Tim Tab, and we never looked back. From the moment we first met Tim he was very professional and easy-going. He made the engagement shoot so much fun, and made us feel like ourselves in front of the camera. I knew we made a good decision when we were taking our engagement photos and it still just felt like my husband and I because he makes you feel that comfortable, in a situation that can be so awkward.Sent on 03/24/2016
Our wedding day was nothing short of perfection. Tim and Bethany really compliment each other, and they were so easy to set up phone calls with and organize a timeline with. They captured moments we didn't get to see, and they captured shots that were so beautiful in the moment, that they allow us to remember that exact moment so vividly. They even went out of their way to allow us to stop at the United Center prior to getting to the venue at our request, so we could get a picture with my brother, as we attend games there often. I can't even put into words how easy it was to work with them, and the photographs are nothing short of perfection. They allow us to relive the best day of our lives over and over again. The creativity, quality, color, focus, and detail in the pictures are so flawless. Thank you again for capturing our engagement shoot, wedding day, and wedding night so perfectly!

Tim and Bethany are just about the sweetest couple you will ever come across, and just happen to be fabulous photographers as well. You know when you see gorgeous pictures on blogs with fabulous lighting and you think, I just really want my pictures to be that pretty? Look no further. You will undoubtedly end up with pictures that friends and family will envy. They also happen to be very funny and fun to work with which results in some fabulous candids. :)Sent on 01/14/2016

We worked with Tim Tab Studios (Tim & Bethany) spring & summer 2015 for our engagement and wedding photos at the Trump Hotel and Bridgeport Art Center Sculpture Garden in Chicago.Sent on 02/10/2016
In our search for a photographer, we got referrals from friends and researched on-line. We spoke with a number of photographers and met with only three. Tim’s photos popped up many times in our venue search and when we visited his website, we looked at all of the featured photos, including those in the Blog, we felt an emotional connection. To those who are in the process of finding a photographer, it will be a truly personal reaction to the photos or maybe just one photo. That’s how it was for us – we felt that each of the Tim’s photos captured a moment in a story and each image held emotion. That is why we reached out. After meeting with him, we knew we wanted to work with him.
We’re so glad that we did an engagement session with Tim. Neither of us had a lot of experience in front of the camera and while it may feel awkward, Tim made us feel comfortable right away. He’s got an easy demeanor and makes a lot of suggestions to get a great photo. He also has a fun sense of humor. He will make you laugh, which will make you relax in front of the camera.
Bethany joined Tim for the day-of wedding and we were impressed with how seamlessly they integrated into everything taking place. This husband-wife duo is an amazing team. Not only are they so complimentary of each other but they complement each other so well.
They are completely flexible, being as involved as you would like them to be. At times, we didn’t even realize that they were there. For portraits, they were direct, took control but never did we feel like we were being told what to do. We really love their creativity to get a different or more dramatic shot. This creativity is backed up by how awesome our photos turned out.
We love our photos and loved working with Tim & Bethany.

When we were researching photographers for my daughter's wedding, we had one chance to get it right. The bride-to-be's sister, who is quite interested in photography and has a great eye, ran across Tim Tab Studios on-line. My daughter and I met with Tim and Bethany, his wife, who work as a team many times. We hit it off right away and after seeing their work, there was no doubt they were up to the job. They are prompt and make the most of the time allotted to them. If someone is not ready, they make sure they are shooting pictures.Sent on 09/27/2015
My daughter's package included engagement pictures, which were wonderful, taken in the City and we used them for our 'save the dates.'
Tim and Bethany are the the sweetest couple and I know their work will be 'picture perfect!'
Danielle · Married on 08/15/2015
When I contacted Tim, he was quick to respond and answered all my questions. He met with my fiancé and me and carefully went over all his services and what to expect. The pictures from the engagement shoot were insane. The colors and the vividness of each photograph were so impressive. The poses were modern and flattering. Tim was extraordinarily professional, yet cool and friendly, making the shoot fun. The day of the wedding, Tim and Bethany were punctual and immediately began shooting. They captured so many small, impromptu moments and their documentary-style photos encapsulated so many beautiful emotions and details of the day. It was the posed pictures that we were most impressed with. Tim and Bethany weren’t finicky with the exact angle of our chins or the exact position of a bouquet. The poses were natural and comfortable, which was so apparent in the final photos. Not only did they not once complain about the 105 degree weather, but in the photos, they made us look like it wasn’t a degree over 70. We are so grateful to them for providing exceptionally gorgeous and flattering photos of one of the most perfect days of our lives.Sent on 11/19/2015

I cannot say enough great things about Tim and Bethany Tab! As I always say, aside from marrying the love of my life, wedding photos were the number one thing I was looking forward to on our wedding day. Needless to say, I spent countless hours trying to find the perfect photographer: someone who was reasonably priced but fantastically talented and someone who I knew my husband and I would get along with. I am so grateful for the recommendation I received to contact Tim Tab Studios; they were everything I was looking for and more.Sent on 11/16/2015
To begin, I live in Chicago but really wanted to have our engagement photo shoot just across the border in Michigan. Tim was so generous and flexible with his time and agreed to meet us there. It's our home away from home and he brought a little bit of Michigan to our wedding. Throughout planning Tim and Bethany were so responsive, keyed in to all of our requests and seemed to have a really good sense of what our "vision" was. I met Bethany the morning of our wedding day and immediately felt comfortable. I had told Tim and Bethany that we were going to be on a tight time schedule but that I wanted as many "getting ready pictures" as possible -- to that, Bethany said, "No problem! We can get all those photos done in that amount of time." And sure enough, she did. She jumped in right away, she might as well have been taking pictures as she walked down my driveway to meet me! She was fabulous. Tim was (again) generous and flexible with his time and met my husband/groomsmen in Chicago while Bethany stayed with me/the bridesmaids in the Chicago suburbs. This duo made it happen. They were assertive and yet unobtrusive. I can't thank them enough for their care, time and utter professionalism. And last, but most certainly not least, our photos are incredible. Truly top notch. I could not be happier with the quality, eye for detail and true passion that was put into each photo. There's no better choice than Tim and Bethany Tab.
