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

Tony and AJ were our photographers this past September at the Morton Arboretum. They made the entire process very easy and were extremely responsive every step of the way. I absolutely love our photos and my mom can't stop raving about them.

I appreciated their overall professionalism and how detail-oriented they were as well as willing to work with us to make sure we got what we wanted.

I'd highly recommend them to anyone in search of a photographer extraordinaire for their wedding :)

We have been working with Tina and Amanda and it has been such a treat! Tina shot the day. We met with Tina a few months before the wedding and when we told her what we were looking for she instantly understood what we were going for - a little bit artistic, but with a heavy focus on trying to capture the emotions of the day. They coordinated the details with my wedding coordinator and so I didn't hear from them until Tina showed up at my house on my wedding day - completely stress free! Tina was so un-intrusive, I didn't even know she was already at my house and taking photos! The photos at the church were unbelievable. Then we when to the country club to take bridal party pictures outside. Other vendors were trying to talk to me and get in the mix, Tina jumped in and made sure that they left me alone to enjoy the moment with my husband. Since the wedding day, I've been working with Amanda and Tina to put the photo book together. They are so prompt and efficient, it's amazing! I cannot wait to see the finished product!!

We just picked up our wedding album and could not be more happy with it! Not only is the album great quality, but the moments that Tina, our photographer, was able to capture were amazing. The album perfectly tells the story of our wedding day.

I absolutely loved working with Artisan Events! My friend referred me and, while I was initially hesitant about the price tag, I found they were worth every penny. Easy to work with, had good ideas and didn't make me do anything cheesy. At least schedule a consultation with them and let their work portfolio speak for itself!

The Artisan Events team is amazing! We used Tim, Michelle and Amanda. It rained on my wedding day, but the photographers had called prior to the wedding day to set up a "Plan B" if it rained. The pictures were beautiful, I recieved so many compliments on them!! I trusted them completely with all the decisions relating the to locations etc. and was not let down at all! I highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding. After the wedding, they were just as helpful with the wedding album! They took time to have calls with me (I lived out of town) to go through all the options for the album. I just wish I had done my engagement pictures with them!!

We used Artisan Events for our fall 2004 wedding in downtown Chicago and were thoroughly impressed from start to finish. Amanda and the entire Artisan team provide extremely professional service and their photo-journalistic photography is unique and absolutely stunning. I knew the minute I saw their work that I wanted Artisan to shoot my wedding. They are able to capture moments and details in a way that is unexpected and very distinct, not to mention visually stunning. As a designer, I have high aesthetic standards, and Artisan exceeded my expectations with the photos they produced. I am proud of the coffee table book album we purchased and show it off to everyone - we even ordered miniature copies for both of our families, which they were tickled with. Artisan Events is a gem and I would recommend them to anyone!

Amanda, Suzanne, Kristy, and Yatzik-Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Where to begin-your photography is absolutely beautiful, unique, and truly captured the emotion of the day!! Each and every one of you were absolutely fabulous to work with during the whole process! Suzanne, Kristy, and Yatzik-you were all wonderful throughout our entire wedding day!!! It was a full day and you never lost your excitement and enthusiasm to snap shots that would forever be our memory of our special day. We received so many compliments about your professionalism during our wedding day. Amanda-our album is a work of art, your creative ideas and quality of the production are impeccable!!! We would recommend you all to anyone for your artistic ability, professionalism, and overall friendliness to work with (and we have, my best friend and sister-in-law both have used Artisan Events and would in turn recommend them on to friends and family).

First heard of Artisan Events when my daughter was planning her wedding in 2002. She had researched photographers both in Chicago and Western suburbs. We checked out several, but knew at once that Artisan was the photographer for us. Amanda, the owner impressed us from the start. She emailed my daughter to make sure her directions to her studio were clear. She met us outside of her studio to greet us. After asking us what type of photography we were looking for, she shared several books containing her photographs with us. They were truly amazing. Amanda provided 3 photographers on the day of the wedding who never were in the way, yet captured every moment perfectly. The entire experience we had with Amanda and her photographers was exceptional. When the proofs came in, it was extremely difficult to chose which ones to put in the album both for Katie, the birde and myself. Amanda was there to help and guide and I can only say, BRAVO....Both the wedding and parent album are beautiful and unique in their own way.
Since we had such a wonderful experience we recommended Amanda and her studio to other friends and family. They too were impressed and used the studio and were equally impressed and pleased. Several of my duaghter's friends used other photographers and were not impressed at all. They were sorry they did not use Artisan Events. I can truly say that Artisan Events made our "Special Day" that much more special with how they photographed the day. I highly recommend this studio....You will not be disappointed.

MOTB perspective: We used Artisan Events as the photographers for my daugher's wedding. She chose a journalistic style, and the photographers did a great job capturing the special moments at each point in time. They were unobtrusive and got great shots - I know since the pix just came in! Over 1,000 of them! There is a mix of color and black/white shots as well as various posed/natural shots. I was pleased to see that they were able to get candids of all the wedding guests - a must for sharing with those guests as well as out-of-town relatives who could not attend.
