I am trying to book a photographer for my wedding in Chicago in June, and I was wondering if there were any Chicago brides or brides to be who could recommend one to me. I would appreciate any help!

Hi SourStars. I am near Chicago. Fred Fox is a rather well-known photography company here in the Chicago area. I just happen to be using them, but my cousin used them for her wedding a few years back and honestly I wouldn''t go with anyone else.

Have you checked out the Knot Chicago magazine or Chicago Brides magazine? There are photography sections in there with vendor listings and you can usually go online and check portfolios to see what you like. Good luck!

DON''T USE RB Photography. Please.
They ruined my wedding photos. We''ll never have an album. And don''t even get me started on our video.
Worst. Photographer. Ever.

Hi sourstars! I don''t know if you''re looking for a photojournalistic style or what your budget is but here are some I absolutely love. We live in Chicago but are hopefully having our wedding in Napa so I''d hate to see my research go to waste!

http://danielleaquilinephoto.smugmug.com/ -- I hear from the girls on the knot that she''s good if you''re looking for good quality photography without the sky high budget.

Good luck!

My friend got married recently in Chicago and she used Jay Crihfield. She''s a complete photo nut and was really happy with him...and the photos I''ve seen were great!

Thank you everyone!

Ms. Goggles - I actually contacted Danielle before I posted this, and I''m hoping to hear back from her soon. I will look into your other suggestions as well.

Emilina22 - I am getting married on June 27th. You?

I don''t know what your budget is, but my friend used Pen Carlson and her photos are amazing! We probably would have hired them as well if we were getting married in Chicago.

They post a lot of photos on their blog, so I''d be sure to also look there for examples of their work.

The photographers we looked at were:

Becky Hill
Life on Prints
Jeremy Lawson
Kenny Nakai
Kenny Kim

We ended up with Mthree Studios out of Milwaukee and we are very excited to work with Molly. Even with travel costs, she is more affordable than most of the Chicago photographers I listed.
