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 :)

I cannot say enough about Brian!! I have not received my wedding photographs, but did do engagement pictures with him. Not only does he take flawless, beautiful photographs, but he has an artsy angle. He has an amazing ability to catch candids that make the bride and groom look as if they are the only two on the planet! The guests adored him! He is comfortable to work with and you can't help being completely at ease! I highly recommend him!

I haven't gotten my professional photos back yet, but I can say that Brian provided an incredibly positive experience for us at our wedding. Leading up to the day, he was lightning quick about responding to e-mails and offered great suggestions for photo locations and the timeline. During the wedding, he seemed to be everywhere at once without being obtrusive. He took time to properly stage the formal family portraits because he knew they were important to my mom - he made sure the train of my dress was smoothed between shots and skillfully directed traffic among all the disorganized family members.

Brian was quick on his feet and was able to scout interesting locations or natural lighting at the spur of the moment. He was also really flexible about the schedule - our family portraits ran overtime and then we cut short time reserved for the bridal party to shoot photos at a nearby park because we didn't want them to miss cocktail hour. Brian just rolled with whatever we decided.

Finally, at the reception, Brian went above and beyond his professional obligations when we toasted each table and took a photo with them. He put down his own camera and took group shots on guests' cameras whenever they asked! I was blown away by how laidback he was about this.

Our family members and bridal party were very complimentary about how nice Brian was. He was relaxed and easy to work with - very highly recommended!

Brian was probably our favorite vendor. It was more than i thought we were going to spend on photography. And fortunately we did get in before prices went up. But he was the photographer who impressed us the most. He asked really good questions and was really great about not steering us into shots or scenerios we weren't interested in. On the day of the wedding, he was shooting all the time but at the same time his presence didn't interfere with the experience.
