let’s turn your love story into your legacy…without any of the stress!

THE CHICAGO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE

I am a firm believer that the most important thing you'll take away from your wedding day will not be the photos; it's the moments happening in them. The takeaway I want you to have from your wedding gallery is that you lived every belly-busting laugh, sweet embrace, and unforgettable moment from your day with your best people. This may be one of the only times in your life where all of the people who love you most are in the same room. That's what I value most as your photographer - living in every celebration of your wedding day. 

I'll help you make sure your train looks perfectly fluffed, your boutonnière is pinned correctly, and have some tissues handy for your tears during your vows. I'm so excited to be apart of your love story, and I can't wait to be friends forever.

celebrating your moments with the people who matter most. 

Let's skip to the good part

"Jayde made my husband and I feel so special, so loved. She took two awkward, camera shy people and made us feel comfortable and made us look beautiful. Jayde captures the love story of a couple in the most authentic way."

-Maya + Grant,  January 2024

Three months before the big day, a detailed questionnaire will help me to build your custom photo timeline and must-have photo list. This ensures your day runs smoothly and that we never miss a moment!

“SHE WAS ABLE TO CAPTURE OUR PERSONALITIES AND DOCUMENT OUR LOVE 

“My husband and I have always been a bit awkward in front of a camera, but Jayde made us so comfortable! When you hire Jayde, you’re not just getting a photographer—you’re getting a cheerleader, a coordinator, a dance partner, an advocate, a hype woman, and a lifelong friend! She has been the highlight of the wedding planning process for me, and booking her was the best decision I made.”

questions

Absolutely! We can add so many customizations—additional hours, extra photographers, and more—to your Chicago wedding photography collection. We’ll cover all that good stuff during our consultation call as we dig into your vision for your big day.

Without a doubt! I encourage all of my couples, local and destination, to add one on if you can swing it. Because it makes such a difference in the photos we take on your wedding day! During your engagement session, we’ll work through all the jitters and discover which prompts are best suited to your personalities and connection. Plus, this is such a special-but-brief season in your life that deserves to be celebrated!


Because I only partner with a limited number of couples each year to ensure I can give you my very best, I recommend inquiring a year or more before your expected wedding date. Sometimes couples reach out up to two years in advance! But if your date is sooner, don’t panic! Shoot me an inquiry, and who knows!? Your date might still be open!


Not only are my images the perfect celebration of Chicago living with their blend of warmth and edge, but I also offer an experience designed specifically for busy couples like you. I collaborate with vendors, so you don’t have to play telephone. I build your timeline and family portrait list so you can just chill. I take the time to truly get to know you so I can be your dream hype girl on the best day of your life!

Without a freaking doubt- YES. I believe that all love is love, and every love story, no matter what it looks like, deserves to be documented. I am proud ally and advocate for inclusivity and marriage equality.

Ahhh! I can’t wait to meet you! Just tell me a little about yourselves and your celebration over on my contact page, and I’ll be in touch within a day to book your no-pressure consultation call. Then, if you decide I’m your photographer, you’ll choose your collection, sign the agreement, and pay the retainer to save your date on my calendar!
