We used Todd Judge of Brian Kinyon Photography for our wedding photos in November 2015. Along with Todd, we hired one other photographer Jelena through the company. The photos were so beautiful! Major plus was that we were very hands-off and they did a really nice job of picking locations for photos. We basically said we wanted "classy city" photos and skyline. They took photos down by the Wrigley building, Michigan Avenue, and North Ave beach - all were great. The church photos were classic and beautiful. He worked within our budget - they seemed comparable to what wedding photography in Chicago costs. Good, solid choice.

Brian was great to work with- very laid back yet professional and responsive. He took our engagement photos which we loved. He was not available for our 9/5/15 wedding, but his associate Todd Judge was. Todd and an assistant photographer did an amazing job on our wedding day. They seemed tireless and worked to capture every moment! Our wedding was outside on Lake Michigan, so lighting was not ideal by any means- but they captured the fire works, our guests, and moments inside the boat perfectly! Extremely happy with what we got for what we paid. Received all high resolution and low res photos at 6 weeks post-wedding as promised. Definitely recommend!

We used Brian Kinyon Photography for our engagement and wedding photos and could not be happier! A friend referred us to Brian & he was so nice and easy to work with.
For our engagement photos, he helped us pick out location in the city and was fine with including our pup too!
When we met with Brian in October, he was already booked for our wedding date but his associate photographer Tony Favarula was available. We were equally impressed with Tony. He remained calm and moved quickly to get all the shots we wanted. Tony even stood in the middle of a busy street for us to get one of our shots!
We were very happy with how our engagement photos turned out and our very excited to see the final product of the wedding photos.
Both Brian & Tony were very easy to communicate with before the days and very organized in planning on how to get certain shots (such as 50 plus family shot etc).
Brian & Tony are both very professional and you will not be disappointed!

Brian Kinyon is the BEST! We worked with Brian for our wedding and I can only say I wish I had another event to work with him on again! To say that we HIGHLY RECOMMEND Brian is an understatement!

First off- I shopped around. Photography is SO expensive yet SO important for the big day! I really wanted to work with a company that could offer me:
1. A comprehensive package
2. Flexibility
3. Affordability (I'm not a Kennedy, I'm a normal gal)
4. Experience and ideas
We got that and much more with Brian!

I shopped around and called MANY photographers and always had sticker shock. Plus lots of photographers are a'la carte. Not with Brian! Our package was much more affordable than what we found elsewhere plus it included a 1 hour engagement photo session, wedding day coverage for 9 hours (plus the FLEXIBILITY to add hours as the night went on- which we did!). We also get a DVD of all of our pictures (copyright free so we can share on Facebook or email to family, etc), an online gallery, and a coffee table photo album! That's a LOT! :)

And Brian is cool! I know this sounds silly, but he is. I didn't want a wedding photographer who has been at it for 40 years and has old ideas. I wanted someone closer in age to my husband and I. I wanted someone more on our page, who would "get us." Brian was definitely fun to work with. He had lots of great ideas for both our engagement pictures (which were SO FUN! Seriously, it was the BEST part of wedding planning!!), and on our wedding day. He actually got in his car and scouted out photo locations for us which I thought was awesome. He also kept the day on schedule for us, making sure we were squeezing every photo stop that was important to my hubby and I.

Brian's style is very photojournalistic and we LOVE LOVE LOVE all of our photos- both engagement & wedding. We LOVED working with Brian and can't say enough good things about him!!! Do yourself a favor and book with Brian Kinyon! You will not be sorry!

I really can not say enough positive things about Brian. We just got our wedding photos back and I am very pleased with them! We did our engagement photos with Brian, and he also was at our rehearsal dinner and wedding for photos. And I am now looking for an excuse to work with him again.
Brian did a really good job of listening to what we knew we wanted and offering suggestions of things he knows have work really well in the past. He did an awesome job of directing our incredibly large families and bridal party to get some really fantastic shots.
I really felt comfortable around Brian which I feel shows in our pictures. He was super flexible and an absolute pleasure to work with. I would (and have) recommended him to several of my engaged friends.

I highly recommend Brian Kinyon as a wedding photographer. He did a wonderful job on our wedding photos. We were very impressed with both the quality of the pictures and his talent and professionalism as a photographer. Brian was very courteous to all of our guests, and took the initiative to direct people how to gather and pose for photos - as bride and groom, we did not have to do a thing! We got a nice balance of candid and "required" pictures. Brian was also very flexible, even going to a movie theatre in Barrington and taking pictures in the dark, which turned out AMAZING! Thanks Brian for helping us to remember a great day :)

Brian is a wonderful photographer. He took both engagement and wedding pictures for our May 2015 wedding at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. The pictures are absolutely beautiful. He did such a great job of capturing so many moments throughout the day. Such a great way for us to remember such an important day. He is also an absolute pleasure to work with. His calm personality was much appreciated on such a hectic day.
