Chicago Wedding Photographer

Chicago is home to a ton of incredible wedding photography teams.  We all have our own styles and approaches to how we capture your wedding day.  Eight Hands Wedding Photography in Chicago takes a humanistic approach.  Our artistic wedding photography style can only be captured after we get to know each and every one of our clients.  Knowing every important person, moment, and detail whether big or small makes the difference between just taking pictures versus capturing real moments.  Artistic wedding photography in Chicago is able to re tell your wedding day story for years to come through photographs and wedding albums.  Starting from day one time will be taken to know every part of you and your big day.  This process continues through questionnaires, phone calls, emails, and text messages leading all the way up to your Chicago ceremony date.  On the day of your wedding two Eight Hands Photography wedding photographers from the windy city will be there to focus on every important detail.  One of our favorite things to hear from our Chicago brides is "we didn't even know you captured that moment".  Two photographers allows us to concentrate on the bride and groom while also capturing the moments between guests and family members.  If wedding photos are important to you then you probably want the best wedding photographers in Chicago.  Eight Hands Photography will give you the best wedding photos for your wedding album while making you feel comfortable all day long. We are also available for some award winning Chicago Illinois engagement photos for your special day!
