It's time for your wedding stress to disappear and for you to have a vendor that will guide you along the way. By working with us, we'll provide you with real, beautiful and meaningful photos that you can pass down for generations.
No awkward posing. Nothing impersonal. No photos that don't feel like you.
Your images from EV Photography will bring you back to those real memories and stories that you can share with your kids and grandkids.
Intro Call and Consultation
You'll start by filling out a form on our Contact Page. We'll schedule an introduction call to learn more about you and the vision you have for your wedding! If it seems like it could be a good fit, we'll meet in person (or zoom) to have a consultation over a bottle of champagne.
Get To Know Your Photographer
After booking, your photographer will be anxious to get to know you better! We want to know your likes, dislikes, dreams and vision for your wedding photos. Your engagement session is also great way to get started and for you to begin to feel comfortable in front of the camera.
The Planning Process
We will start with a series of questionnaires and begin building your day-of timeline. Our goal is to ensure that your photography coverage works perfectly so you can RELAX on your wedding day... we got you!
Your Photo Premier Night
On your wedding day we work hard, shoot smart and love well...you might even catch us on the dance floor! You can be assured that your day is being captured in the best possible way!
You're invited to attend, what we call, your Photo Premier Night! It's a second celebration to reveal your photos in a fun way, relive those moments all over again, design your album and of course pop more champagne! That same night your online gallery link will be delivered to you. Invite friends or family to attend, it's going to be a great time!
Do you deliver RAW files?
When you hire EVP you are not only hiring us to take photos, you are also saying you trust our creative vision and direction. The RAW files are incomplete works of art and for this reason we will never deliver the RAW files as they do not represent our completed body of work.
Is there a travel fee?
There is a travel fee for wedding and engagement sessions outside a
30 mile radius outside of Chicago.
Destination weddings have an all-inclusive fee.

Yes! We offer film photography as an add on to your photography collection.
Do you offer videography?

Do I have to order prints through you?
You do not have to order any printed photos through us. Print your photos wherever you'd like. Though, every couple we work with gets an heirloom album and we do offer custom framing and gallery artwork for purchase.
How do I know who my photographer is going to be?
Karin and Jeff are our two lead photographers and whoever reaches out to you during the inquiry phase will be your main photographer throughout the whole process. 2nd photographers are assigned closer to the wedding date and will be scheduled based on availability.
How long does it take to get my photos back?
