“We could not be more thrilled with the absolute perfection of our wedding photos. Elena was able to capture every moment of our wedding in a magical way. She gave us the priceless gift of being able to relive that day over and over again. What an honor is was to be able to work with such a talent! We look forward to having Elena capture all of our life’s most memorable moments.” – Julie & Dan, pictured above.

“Absolutely perfect!” That is how my wife and I would describe Elena Bazini Photography! After meeting several photographers, we decided to book Elena. She had an impressive portfolio, was reasonably priced, and she was so fun to meet with! We did engagement photos months before our wedding, which was a great way for us to get comfortable with Elena’s style and with being in front of the camera. She completely put us at ease, came up with great ideas, and was open to all of our suggestions. We were blown away by the engagement photos! Then the wedding came. We expected the photos to match the high quality of the engagement shoot, and when we saw them, they exceeded our already sky-high expectations. Not only did we get stunning photos from each part of the day, but Elena and her assistant respected our wishes for them to take a “Fly on the wall” approach. There wasn’t a single time when any of our guests were distracted by the photographers (which can be a problem at some weddings). And the photos are all spectacular! We absolutely loved working with Elena Bazini. She helped us capture so many great memories from the greatest day of our lives! We are so grateful for that.” – Ashleigh & Jeff, pictured above.

“Elena was amazing to work with! She is extremely professional, has great ideas, and is very graceful in the way she achieves all the shots she would like to get while also keeping everyone in the crazy wedding party moving along at an appropriate pace. She spoke with me only once at the wedding to let me know about a transition she was making, and for the rest of the time she just got GREAT shots without needing my assistance or needing to ask me questions, which is such a huge plus on your wedding day when your vendors can function independently. She has an eye for moments and is able to capture them before they fade away. She is great with candid photos. My favorites are photos where she captured those moments. She really captured the whole essence of what my wedding was, and what I wanted it to be. I show off her photos constantly. Love her.. definitely go with her!” – Whitney & Chris, pictured above.

“You can see how talented Elena is by looking at her photos. What you can’t see is how easy and fun she is to work with. She is upbeat and friendly and brought a really positive energy to our engagement and wedding photo shoot (we got married on May 31). She is responsive, professional and had a lot of wonderful suggestions for locations and photo ideas. My husband didn’t think that he would enjoy having his picture taken for hours during the engagement shoot and wedding, but Elena put him at ease immediately with her laid back personality and he actually had fun hanging out and getting photographed (that is probably the highest compliment I can give her!). We met with Elena in person to discuss the wedding logistics and schedule, and there was never a moment when I worried that something would go wrong — she was on top of the plans and really guided us through the entire process. Can’t recommend her highly enough. Great job.” – Valerie & Jim, pictured above

“I recently used Elena Bazini for my wedding in July and I have nothing but positive memories from the experience! Elena Bazini has a truly amazing eye for photography! Ever since I was a little girl I dreamed of what my wedding would look like and she captured those dreams, making them a reality! When you have your wedding, the day really does go by so fast and all that you will be able to take away from it is your memories and the photos to remind you of everything wonderful that happened on the best day of your life. Elena combines traditional with modern to create a montage of photos that look like they belong in a magazine! Besides being a true artist, she is also a pleasure to work with. She is not pushy or demanding but rather patient and fun, dodging in and out of the shadows to capture every moment without interrupting your day. I cannot say enough about her and her wonderful talents. If you are looking for an amazing photographer, look no further, she is truly the best in the business!” – Colleen & Nick, pictured above.

My wife and I used Elena’s photography services for both our engagement and wedding pictures. Elena was great to work with and more importantly, we loved the results.  Prior to the wedding, Elena went out of her way in order to meet with us and even arrived at the meeting early in order to scout out our venue. On the day of our wedding, Elena and her assistant were great with our families and very professional. Most importantly – the pictures. They turned out great!! Our families loved the engagement pictures and were thrilled to hear that the same photographer was going to be shooting our wedding. Sarah and I received the wedding pictures and could not have been happier with the results.  We highly recommend Elena Bazini Photography!” – Sarah & Michael, pictured above.

“Elena was the photographer at my wedding and was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is professional, reliable, flexible, and has a lovely sense of humor. Our wedding was large and Elena had to cover multiple events over a two day span but I knew I could count on her. Our wedding just happened to be during one of the hottest summers on record in Chicago and the actual day of the wedding may have been the hottest day ever (literally) in Chicago history. We had many events outside and Elena was there, all smiles, lugging her heavy camera along, trying to make my niece and nephews smile for the hundreds of pictures taken outside. I received many compliments from guests at our wedding praising Elena. While Elena is a great person, her photography skills are excellent as well and she captured so many important moments from such a special day in beautiful, unforgettable ways. Elena also was the photographer for our engagement shoot which my wife and I loved. It was a great way to get to know Elena better and while we already found her to be delightful when we first met, we left the engagement shoot thrilled knowing she would be our wedding photographer. Many of the photos Elena took during the engagement shoot are photos my wife and I will cherish forever and captured such a happy moment in our lives. My wife and I cannot recommend Elena highly enough.” – Milee & Samir, pictured above.
