Meet Elena Bazini

I am a Chicago-based wedding photographer who loves getting to know my clients. I love telling stories with my images. And I love weddings.  When my clients look back on their wedding images, I want them to remember how it felt to be there.  I want them to have beautiful images of moments they may have missed– a tear quickly swept away, a big laugh, a quick but meaningful glance. While I love classic poses and unique composition, my favorite photographs always end up being the moments that happen naturally. I am drawn to beautiful light and real emotion. I am always striving to create that image that will make you say ‘wow.’ With passion, dedication, creativity, and style, I specialize in telling beautiful love stories with photos that capture the essence of each couple. My timeless and photojournalistic style will be forever current. Our upbeat and easygoing personalities will help make your wedding day fabulous and fun. We candidly capture the in-between moments of genuine laughter and raw emotion that will give you goosebumps. We aim to be more than just your wedding vendor. We will be there guiding and supporting you every step of the way, making you and your partner feel 100% comfortable in front of the lens. My passion is creating inspired, heart-felt images for Chicago and beyond.  And we can’t wait to partner with you!

Getting married?  Reach out and say hello!  We’d love to tell your story.

Wondering what makes me tick?  When I’m not photographing weddings, you are most likely to find me traveling the world or straight up relaxing with my husband in Logan Square.  My favorite recent trips include Thailand, France, and the Northwest Territories of Canada.  When my bags aren’t packed, you can find me drinking iced lattes (even in the dead of winter), listening to music on a blanket in Logan Blvd (not in the dead of winter), or at home with my husband and little terrier (David and Frankie, respectively.)

Whether I’m working or traveling, you can always keep up with me on my blog.  I recommend checking out our 2018 Year in Review or my adventures chasing the Northern Lights in Canada.  Or, one of our favorite summer weddings and a recent trip to Europe.

The beautiful city of Chicago provides me with so much inspiration, and is an endless playground for a photographer like myself.

Now it’s our turn to learn about you!

xoxo, Elena
