Denver had the best energy - very upbeat, great advice, fun and just plain awesome. It made the entire day even more special and fun. He brought out the best in every single person involved in our day.

I can't say enough great things about Denver Smith Photography! From the minute my husband I meet with Denver we knew he was the photog for us. He came to the table with great ideas and took our ideas as well. He was great on the wedding day helping to keep everyone in line and on time. Our photos turned out better then I could have dreamed.

Denver was on time for every meeting, quick with email responses and had teaser photos from our wedding the next day!!! That was probably one of my favorite parts!

If you're having a wedding in Chicago....go with Denver, you won't be disappointed!

Denver photographed the civil union ceremony for my partner and I, and he is so much more than a picture-taker, he is a true artist. The photos taken are truly stunning, and they capture what happened without ever appearing to be staged or stiff. He has a true artists eye for color and composition, and I have received more kudos on our photos than I could have ever imagined. We presented a challenge, with our ceremony on the water at dusk, and he handled it like a pro; the light, shadow, and color are all spectacular. I would wholeheartedly recommend Denver Smith Photography.

Denver Did an excellent job. We had to cancel the photographer that we previously booked, only 2 weeks before the wedding. We found Denver through referral from a friend. Not only did he have only 2 weeks to prepare but he also had to plan it without being in the same city. We are located on the westcoast so everything he had to prepare for had to be done from Chicago. He only saw the venue a couple days in advance but was still able to plan all the photos flawlessly. He did a great job and we couldnt be happier with the work he did. He comes highly recommended from us.

When looking for a photographer, everyone has their own requirements... I had a unique challenge... finding a photographer that not only took superb shots, but put my mother (a photographer herself) at ease while she was camera-less mother-of-the bride. Denver did just that and he had an engaging personality that made everyone comfortable and ready to have fun with the day and pictures.

I HEAR NOTHING BUT COMPLIMENTS ON HIS WORK AND WE ARE VERY EXCITED AND HAPPY WITH WHAT HE'S PROVIDED SO FAR! :)

I found Denver online and knew that I had found the photographer for us once I talk to him on the phone. He did a wonderful job for us! I love our pictures. He did a superb job at capturing our quirky Quaker wedding. He was professional and fun. I could imagine that he would be wonderful at a wedding where there might be family issues as he has a wonderful sense of humor and a gift for working with people. We even had some family pictures taken with him and our newest member of our family and he was great getting our son's attention and got some amazing family shots.
