Wedding photographers in Chicago can be super expensive—consider hiring an affordable photographer like Marissa Kelly Photography by having a small ceremony like this Chicago couple did! I love a good veil shot like this one.

Marissa is the best decision we’ve made for our wedding, by far! She is the easiest to work with for so many reasons, which is something I treasure as I plan a wedding without a planner. Not only is she kind, funny, and down to earth, but she is a talented professional as well. We are planning our wedding remotely, and she flew out to NYC to do our engagement photos since she understood our hope to tie our love for our current and childhood homes. Marissa is a clear communicator, and she provides straightforward information about her packages, what they include, and how that fits into your wedding day. She doesn’t dance around topics to try and sell you something every chance she gets, which I appreciated so much as I thoroughly researched vendors. We had our engagement shoot, had to say goodbye for now, and I knew we found the right photographer. I was sad to say goodbye because Marissa made our shoot so comfortable for us that she feels more like a close friend. After our engagement shoot, the turnaround with the edits was crazy fast! We were so happy to get our gallery. Our pictures were easily downloadable, and we were able to share them with our family that lives long distance. The amount of positive feedback we got from our engagement photos alone was so heartwarming that I can’t wait to share my 5+++ star review of Marissa until after my wedding. Our friends and family said it best. Because of Marissa’s work, they said:

“You should just do engagement photos for a living.” -friend
“Your engagement photos were so beautiful, they made me cry” -friend of grooms mother
“Amazing” “Beautiful” “Perfect” x1,000,000

After our engagement shoot, I’m so beyond excited to see her work from our wedding day. Any stress that builds up is immediately smashed from a glance at her pictures.”
