Our lead photographer is the person who created the photography artwork through the web site. We do not outsource our art work or hire unknown photographers. We have deliberately decided to remain as a small photography boutique and feel that outsourcing and hiring on additional staff would take away from the interpersonal experience we currently provide to our clients.

We had Agnes as our wedding photographer for our wedding last month. She was so creative with the poses, nothing bland. We did the traditional stuff and then did some fun and crazy photos. I did not want a typical wedding album and our photographer helped us create something all our own. She listened to us and we had tons of fun jumping and laughing. I would recommend Plum Tree Studio Photography to anyone and everyone! Great value for the money! Superb!

Our photographer was the most professional of all of our wedding vendors! This is the most well priced photographer in all of lake county. We found a diamond in Plum Tree Studio Photography! Our wedding was in Arlington Heights Illinois and the reception was in Northbrook Illinois. We had been planning for months and lucked out to find that Plum Tree Studio still had a photographer available. Due to our busy schedules, we had a phone consultation and felt like we knew our photographer (who was also the owner). This was our special day and we were both a wreck. Our photographer really put our minds at ease though. The ceremony was not distracted and she got every shot like a hawk. Wow. At the reception and formal portraits she had an eye for balance. Mom and dad were really impressed, which speak a lot. We spent a fair amount, and it was a fair price and we had no regrets. We would have been devastated if we had hired some amateur to shoot our wedding (or agreed to let our uncle photograph us). The photos we got back were 130% worth the price, which was still very affordable. The quality of the images and professionalism of the photographer were well worth every penny. No regrets. Ten stars! I think they do weddings all through the Chicago area and suburbs.

Ohh… and our photographer was Plum Tree Studio, their web site is http://www.plumtreestudio.com/

Comments on weddings:
Great food. Great Photographer. Great party. The day went off without a hitch and we’ve been happily married since. We go through our wedding album regularly and love it!
