A Chicago wedding photography experience that is intentionally designed to understand your story + serve you best.

Alana Lindenfeld Photography is an inclusive brand, meaning I'm here to serve any and all couples in love. I believe in the right for everyone to get married proudly.

"What if you haven't shot at our venue before?"

>>> Luckily, I'm shooting at new venues all the time, plus I travel across the country for some weddings without ever being in that state before, so I always have a game plan! I check out the venue on Google Earth, find lots of images online, and can even offer a site visit if it makes you more comfortable. Plus, I always arrive early to scope out the site. And hey--I'm a professional wedding photographer for a reason ;)

"We've never had professional photos taken, and we're awkward!"

>>> Ummm, said everyone on my site, EVER! I promise I'll make sure you're feeling comfortable and confident through a multi-step process curated to you (and I mean that!!) whether we meet for engagement photos, or for the first time ever on your wedding day. Ask me how I make sure of this when you inquire.

"We're new to this whole wedding thing. How else do you help?"

>>> Most couples who inquire are first-timers (no shame if you're not!), so I'm always here to help provide resources where I can. If you need videographer recommendations, florists, hair and makeup, etc, I'm more than happy to provide awesome vendors who I personally enjoy working with and believe their work complements mine. I'll also help plan your wedding day timeline to make sure we leave lots of room for the most meaningful moments.

"Alana is an absolutely incredible photographer and human being. She is unbeatable for natural, vibrant, joyous, jaw-droppingly beautiful results. She really went ABOVE and BEYOND, and gave us SO many incredible images!"
