The Best Places to Propose in Chicago

- Inspiration ·
From stunningly posed portraits with natural laughter to "hell yeah, we're married!" moments to the glance at your best friend during your first dance as a married couple, I've got you covered. I believe in photos that are as dynamic as you are--showing off your goofy side, romantic moments, and happy tears during loved ones' speeches. Most importantly, I believe in colorful, bright wedding photography that feels as celebratory as your wedding day does, even when you look back at the photos 20 years later.
Over here, I don't expect you to come with a Pinterest-list of questions to ask me. I'll ease you through a fun, laughter-filled consultation where I learn what moments, people, and feelings are most important to you on your wedding day before I tell you all about myself, my process, and answer any questions I didn't cover.
Inquire with me here for some basic info, then we can hop on a Zoom call together and let the details (and laughter) commence.
Read more about me, your Chicago wedding photographer, here, or check out the latest Chicago wedding on the blog here. I also serve NYC regularly, and travel often to anywhere I'm wanted.
But I'm here for you, from the moment you inquire until wayyy past your wedding day. When you hire me, you're getting the experience of feeling taken care of, having someone in your corner, and being able to fully trust your photographer so you can let loose on your wedding day, stop looking at the time, and still know you're going to have the best pictures that tell the story of your whole day--from pretty, posed portraits, to wild, hair-flipping, booty-shaking dancing pictures at the reception (which I'll probably join in for one song, btw).

"I am a huge “go with your gut-feeling” person and the first moment my fiancé and I met Alana for drinks, I knew I needed her as my photographer. She has such a bright, friendly personality and is genuinely interested in her clients. She goes above and beyond, helping with outfit choices, locations, themes- the works. Beyond her great people skills, you can tell she’s serious about her work and puts out quality photos that my fiancé and I will treasure forever."
