We are photographers, designers, and bookbinders working together to celebrate your story.

Founded and guided by award-winning photographic artist, Amanda Sudimack, the studio has evolved over the past 15 years. Creating beautiful, timeless art has always been our focus — art informs everything we do. We are inspired to create natural, artful images for our clients designed in handcrafted books & albums you can't find anywhere else. We create and produce our own proprietary lines of albums because every detail counts. The scope of our bookbinding and design services has expanded in recent years to include Family Archive and design projects for prominent families, organizations, and past wedding clients all over the country.

We believe in many things–our clients, great composition, art, rapport, journalism, the moment, our reputation, and your experience. We believe in great design, in-sourcing, collaboration, and fine materials. We covet handmade papers and bookbinding. Whatever capacity you choose to work with us, we deliver work we're proud to create.

Our team is honored to capture your moment and help you tell your story–with honesty, respect, and exceptional professionalism. We love what we do. Read less

We had a wonderful experience working with Artisan Events. We worked with Tina as our primary photographer and had an amazing experience. She was flexible in meeting with us prior to our wedding and answered any questions we had. On our wedding day she captured all of our special moments and had a positive and calm attitude throughout the day. Every moment was captured perfectly without feeling intrusive. We had a wonderful experience and highly recommend Tina and all of the team at Artisan that we worked with!

Artisan Events provided everything that we had hoped for from our wedding photos and more. Our lead photographer Christine was extraordinarily skilled in helping us understand the process and making us feel comfortable at all points. She spent the time to really get to know us as a couple beforehand and learned about our ideal vision for our day. The photos from our wedding are truly unique and we are so excited to showcase them in our new house. It also ended up snowing on our wedding and really captured the beauty of a winter wedding in Chicago. I would highly recommend Artisan Events to anyone!

We used Artisan Events for our wedding this past September - primarily because of the fantastic experience we had when we met AJ! She was fantastic from the start. Along with our package, they included a free 'engagement session', which my husband and I were initially skeptical of. We aren't big photo people, so we were a bit anxious, but this was a fantastic decision. We got to work with AJ months in advance, and really felt comfortable with her, which made the actual wedding day go so smoothly. Day-of, I was pretty nervous, but as soon as AJ and her assistant (Emily) arrived, things went smoothly from there. No need for a day-of planner when you have AJ and team moving you along! The photos turned out BEAUTIFULLY. I cannot say it enough. They captured every moment so well, and were fun to work with to boot!
Post wedding - we met for our album review, which went swimmingly. We had no idea where to even begin, but they put together a fantastic template for us, and quickly moved from there.
Overall, I'd recommend AJ and Artisan Events to everyone and anyone in need of beautiful, professional, and fun photos!

My wife and I had lots of options when it came deciding on a photographer for our wedding last fall. We chose Artisan because of the team there. Every step of the way, AJ offered great advice and suggestions on how to get the perfect photos of our wedding while working with our budget. Christine, the photographer for the wedding, as well as our engagement photos, took so many amazing pictures it was hard to decide which ones to use in our wedding album.

Thanks everyone at Artisan!

We had an amazing experience working with AJ and Hannah from Artisan Events. From the first meeting with AJ we knew that she was the perfect photographer to capture our big day. AJ was very personable and down to earth. She spent a lot of time getting to know us as a couple so that she could capture all of our special moments on our wedding day. On the actual wedding day I felt extremely comfortable with AJ and her assistant Hannah guiding us through all of our special moments, especially our first look. I also appreciated the amount of photos that were taken. We have so many amazing photos to choose from that we really felt like every special moment was captured. In addition, I loved the flexibility that was provided on the wedding day. We asked the photographers to stay an extra half hour and they were more than happy to do so. All in all, they were worth every penny!! I loved every photograph that was taken and we are beyond happy that AJ and Hannah did such a fabulous job helping us document our wedding day!!

Artisan Events did an incredible job photographing our wedding, start to finish. Their planning is impeccable, and gave me complete confidence that they wouldn't miss a moment. Amanda, Tina and everyone I met from the Artisan Team is so professional, but also very creative and have a personal approach that put me and my wedding party at ease ... ensuring the best possible photographs of everyone. Last but not least, their gorgeous products are the best out there ... well designed heirlooms to last a lifetime. My closest friend/MOH, and a number of acquaintances have hired Artisan for their weddings, and everyone has been so pleased. When I got engaged, I knew exactly who I would call to capture this milestone in our lives.

We worked with AJ at artisan events, and she and her assistant Hannah did an amazing job with our photography. She didn't miss a single detail-and made sure all the photos we asked for were taken, and some! I couldn't recommend a more professional, hilarious, and overall awesome photographer and the company she works for. They were the best!

Words cannot express how grateful I am to have worked with Artisan Events. AJ fit in like a favorite cousin, she has a sincerely sweet spirit that is lovely to have around. I didn't have a wedding party so she was kind enough to guide & support me throughout my wedding day. Their portfolio speaks for themselves but their personal attention & professionalism are unmatched.

Artisan Events was recommended to us by our wedding planner, and we couldn't be more thrilled with our decision to use them as our photographer. They are extremely professional and return e-mails/calls in a timely manner. Christine and Hannah were very organized while trying to capture all of our desired portraits the day of our wedding, and we managed to get them all! Our day-of pictures were more than we every could have asked for. They captured our very special day just beautifully and we are in love with how our photos turned out. We definitely recommend using Artisan Events for your wedding photographer!
