Your love story has evolved and grown the entire time you've been together, and this next chapter is one that really seals the deal. The images you get of your day should reflect exactly who you are in this very moment, and should showcase the facets of your story in the loudest way possible. No matter how we got here, let's document it authentically! Maybe you met unconventionally. Maybe you want to swap the sentimental poems for “unity shots.” Or maybe you just want to transform your modern, industrial venue into a one-of-a-kind wonderland your guests will never forget!
Well, cheers to that! Because love stories like yours are the ones I was born to tell.
I’ve crafted a Chicago wedding photography experience made for all kinds of couples. Camera-shy? No problem! Unsure of your good side? I gotchu! Staring down an “impossible” wedding day timeline? Let me take a look at that! With nearly 200 love stories preserved across half a decade, I’ve designed an experience I can’t wait to share as we capture all the moments you want to relive forever.
You know how you can pretty much tell where a Chicagoan spends the most time based on their hobbies? The brewery regulars head to Wicker Park, the River North girlies are always coffee shop hopping, and the Wrigleyville crew is usually hanging with me at a Cubs game. But then, no matter how stereotypical they seem at first, when you really get to know them, they always say something so out-of-the-box, so completely unexpected, that you’d never have guessed it in a million years!
That’s how I feel about each of the couples I meet. No matter how many weddings I document, you guys always find a way to surprise me! And that’s why this is the dream job this little people-person never even knew to wish for until I took the leap, moved from my tiny Indiana town, and turned my lifelong hobby into my full-time career.
How’d I do it, and why do I love it?
"Not only is her skill in photography unmatched, but she is one of the kindest, most genuine people you will ever come across. She is there for whatever you may need on your wedding day. Jayde makes everyone feel comfortable on your big day, and even if you think you aren’t photogenic, she will make sure your pictures are magazine worthy! We are so thankful for jayde giving us the best photos to help relive our best day yet."
"We were so lucky to book Jayde for both our engagement session and our wedding and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results. Not only are the pictures amazing, but she is phenomenal at getting everyone comfortable and makes sure everyone has fun, which trust me, it shows in the pictures. You couldn’t ask for a better photographer who not only will take amazing pictures, but will lift you up the entire day (like fixing your veil right before you walk down the aisle)."
I’ve got a feeling you don’t want your wedding day to turn into one big photo shoot. But that doesn’t mean you want to pass up a gallery overflowing with breathtakers, showstoppers, and jawdroppers! By exploring new ideas, focusing on what you find most important, and prepping to perfection, you’ll get all the images you love without feeling overwhelmed or skipping your cocktail hour! Even if you think you’re not super photogenic, we’ll all be calling BS on that by the end of the day!
