Yakov's studio is our #1 choice:

There's a reason why Yakov's Studio is our #1 choice:
— Weddings, Portrait and Event Photographers since 1988, servicing the Chicago Metro area.

We’ve been doing weddings photography for more than 30 years, including 22 years of photographing events in the Chicago metropolitan area. We’ll customize a package that’s comfortable and affordable for you and that will meet – and exceed – your expectations.
— Who’s the best Chicago-area wedding photographer for you?
It’s a matter of taste. We don’t want to brag; but if you ask our clients, they tell you we’re the best Chicago-area wedding photographer. Once you meet us and see samples of our exquisite wedding photography, you’ll know if we’re the right choice for you. We invite you to view our wedding portfolio during a free consultation and see for yourself. We’re certain you’ll like what you see. And be sure to ask about our exclusive digital wedding photography books.
— Who’s the best photographer for bar/bat mitzvahs and other events?
It’s a matter of know-how...We know bar and bat mitzvahs. We’ve done fun bar/bat mitzvahs at all the area bar/bat mitzvah venues throughout the Chicago area and the Jewish community, including many for our own family. Our clients say we’re the best Chicago-area bar/bat mitzvah photographers. They also say we’re the best Chicago-area corporate photographers, and the best all-around events photographers in the area. Again, we invite you to meet us and see if we’re right for you.
— When it comes to getting to know each other, it’s a matter of expectations...
As you get to know us, you’ll discover that we are highly skilled, caring, and artistic professional photographers, using the finest digital photography equipment. And as we get to know you, we’ll understand your desires, your needs, and the uniqueness of your event. We promise to be there with you throughout your day and evening, providing stunning portraits and hundreds of candid photos that tell your whole story. We’re family owned and operated. We handle every job ourselves – not hand them out to other photographers – so you’ll know who we are and know you can trust us. You’ll hardly know we’re there, yet you’ll know that we’ll give you everything you want – and more.
— When it comes to cost, it’s a matter of comfort...
Rest assured that while there’s nothing cheap about our photography, we do offer you exceptional work at exceptional prices, featuring a variety of affordable photography packages with rates certain to fit your budget. Better yet, if you tell us your needs and budget, we’ll customize a package that’s comfortable for you and that will meet – and exceed – your expectations.
