Classic... Elegant...Timeless....Creative. Those are the words I would use to describe our style of photography. We want to capture the essence of your unique wedding day and create a beautiful family heirloom. We are not interested in "fad" photography or the latest trends. Instead we like to create consistently beautiful, timeless images that you will enjoy for years to come. With an emphasis on capturing candid moments that naturally unfold we also love detail shots, formal portraits & creative portraits.

Photography is my passion! I discovered my love for the camera while visiting Italy over 15 years ago and I haven’t stopped shooting since. Just ask my family and friends… they rarely see me without my camera!

I love capturing moments and telling stories through my photography. I take important moments and strive to transform them into pieces of art. When documenting weddings, I focus on capturing the beauty but more importantly the intimacy and emotion of the day which I always feel honored to be a part of. There are so many wonderful moments during a wedding day! That's why I'm in love with wedding photography. To see two families come together, witness all the love & beauty, and be the one responsible for capturing that for you and your family is very humbling!

I do hope you enjoy viewing this collection as I take great pleasure in sharing it. I look forward to hearing from you! Read less

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Proof CD of All Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
I do all of the editing myself so you are getting personalized service. I shoot all digital so I can easily transform any color image to a black and white or sepia. You and your family members can also order any image I take in either of these versions as well. All of the images on my gallery are color-corrected, edited and print ready!
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
I have experience with all types of light be it artificial lighting or natural light. I know which types of light are suitable for capturing the best looking image as well.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital
How many photographers do you work with?
I work with a second shooter.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes I am ALWAYS your lead photographer!
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
No I never do two events in a day and if I book two weddings in one weekend it is with a day in between (ex: Fri & Sun. I want to make sure I am fresh for each and every wedding!
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I use Nikon D3's with five different lenses, tripod, off camera lighting with 3 on camera flash units and 3 turbo battery packs. I have backups of every piece of equipment so I am ready if something malfunctions!
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes I have back up equipment of everything I bring!
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Full day
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes, it's $100/hr for each additional hour of coverage per photographer
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
No breaks, just a meal break at the reception is all I require.
Do you charge for travel?
If it's out of the state or 3-4 hours away in Illinois yes I do charge extra for travel. It depends on the distance.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Proofs ready within 4-6 weeks. I take time to edit and make sure all the images look top knotch. I don't just slap them up in the gallery so that's why it takes a few weeks but it's worth it!
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Pictage.com - You will see your proofs in the on-line gallery first. Then I send you a flash drive with all the edit, print ready images you see on the gallery. None of these images have watermarks on them either so they can be used anyway you like.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Forever, the online gallery is up for 90 days initially however you can extend your gallery time for a very small fee and your images are always archived on Pictage and readily accessible for years to come.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes I do.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes after the gallery is up I send you a flash drive with all the edit, print ready images you see on the gallery. None of these images have watermarks on them either so they can be used anyway you like. I give you a shared release form so if you try to reproduce and print your images you can do so without any resistance from store owners and printers.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes - Pictage.com
What kind of albums do you offer?
Flush Mount albums in either a 10x10 or 12x12 size. The albums are amazing, of the upmost quality and are guaranteed for life.
When will the client get the final album?
After the bride and groom pick out their favorite images for me I do a preliminary design. They can participate in the design process as much as they are comfortable doing so. With the flush mount album you get to view the album on-line and make any adjustments before I send it off to print. On average it takes about 4-8 weeks to design, print and delivery your album. It will not take 6 months to get your album like some companies.

My husband and I hired Deonna for our wedding based solely on her work we had seen on her website. We wanted quality photographs but didn't want to pay $5,000 for the most sought after photographers in the Chicagoland area. In my opinion, Deonna's photos are worth so much more than she charges, compared to other wedding photographers in the area.

We are SO happy we chose Deonna! Not only are her photographs AMAZING, she was so lovely to work with. She was quick to respond to questions during the planning process and was cool and patient, but efficient, the day of the wedding. We had a second photographer, Tracy, also present the day of the wedding. She was also wonderful!

You will not be disappointed with Deonna Caruso Photogaphy - I cannot say enough good things! Thank you, Deonna!

My husband and I are were very happy with Deonna! I wanted quality pictures but also a good price. I talked to a lot of photographers and she stood out because she was superr nice on the phone and I knew I wanted to meet her. When we finally met her ...she did not disappoint! She's super friendly and willing to listen to you about your special day. We have a HUGE family and church family pictures can easily become a disaster especially when you have a time crunch. We made sure to have an organized picture list but she made sure to be efficient with the pictures and we were able to fit them all in our timeframe. On my wedding day she helped me feel calm as well, definitely a plus with a photographer on your wedding day. We got the pictures on a flashdrive within 2 weeks after our wedding and we really like them! Our parents are super impressed with her timing. She is also very responsive to any questions you may have. I definitely think she is a great deal for the money she is asking for. Would definitely recommend her especially if you want to make a stress free decision! Thanks so much Deonna!

My husband and I got married a month ago, and we were THRILLED with Deonna. We were very, very picky with what we were looking for in a photographer. We wanted somebody who was a good mixture of artsy and classic, somebody who would take some photojournalism shots, but also incorporate the formal shots we wanted also. After seeing Deonna's albums online, I knew her style fit us right away. We first met her when we did our engagement photo session. She drove an hour out to our location, and was very open to our ideas and incorporated some props that I had brought to use. Despite being the middle of February and it being 20 degrees outside, she took some really amazing shots of us outside in the snow, and also in our local starbucks (where my husband and I first met).
Deonna is very timely in her responses, both via e-mail and phone. I never felt like I couldn't get a hold of her, and she was frequently in contact with us regarding when we would be receiving things and what we should do. On our wedding day, I felt like she perfectly captured the entire timeline of events, which is exactly what I wanted. I cannot tell you how much I LOVE my wedding photos. It took less than a month to get them back, and I was immediately able to share them online with family and friends. She also sent me a flash drive of all the images so I can do what I want with them. They are absolutely beautiful. Her pose ideas for my wedding party were so cute and the candid shots are so much fun. I had even sent her a couple ideas for shots and she was able to do those as well. She captured all the major moments of our day as well as the tiny details. Deonna has the sweetest personality, and was so easy to work with. She is very bubbly and friendly and was such a joy to have around us on our wedding day. She doesn't feel like somebody I hired, she feels more like a friend! I will definitely be using her for future picture occasions like baby pictures or family photos.

Deonna is a fantastic photographer! We hired her for our August 2013 wedding and could not be happier. Deonna has such a bubbly personality and her love for photography shows through the moment you meet her. We worked with Deonna for both our wedding and engagement photos. My husband and I hadn't really taken professional photos together and Deonna made our engagement shoot very relaxed and lots of fun.

Deonna and her assistant did a phenomenal job capturing our wedding day. She has a great eye for detail, which was great since we didn't really get to spend much time admiring the flowers, decor or dessert table. Deonna came early to scout out our wedding site (ceremony and reception were at the same venue), and was able to get some amazing shots of us and our guests from all different vantage points. We could not be happier with our wedding photos, and like we told Deonna, our wedding photos were exactly what we thought wedding photos should be and so much more!

Deonna did a beautiful job on the photography for my wedding at the Lake Forest Armour house. Deonna met with my mom and I to discuss her services; at this meeting her professionalism and quality of work was very impressive. Her style of photography was exactly what I envisioned for my wedding. She kept in touch with my family and me throughout the wedding planning planning process and got to know us. She made us comfortable on our wedding day, and it felt very natural. She captured the beautiful setting and emotion of that day. I am so thankful for the moments she captured! She did a flawless job, and I am so grateful for her work. I would recommend her services to all brides! Her work speaks for itself. Friends and family have said the pictures look straight out of a wedding magazine. I can't wait to get our wedding album!

Deonna did an exceptional job with our photography for our engagement and our wedding. Along with her 2nd photographer Peter, they captured every moment of our day. Our pictures will make statements for years to come. She take the normal posed shots with family and friends, but can also add flair to those if you want. Then she mix her photojournalism in with get pictures of dances, speeches, and other main events of the wedding. She made our whole wedding process very easy, always answer promptly to emails. You do receive a flash drive with the original image files. Definitely suggest using Deonna!

Deonna Caruso takes your wedding day and turns it into a beautifully captured story you can enjoy for years to come. The time and detail she takes to get your vision really helps frame your day. In every photo you feel like you are at the wedding you are looking through. There is so much emotion and beauty behind each one, you cannot help but be drawn in. I was beyond impressed with our experience and final product. Deonna is both professional and easy to work with, you almost feel like she's part of the wedding itself! I know our day would not have been the same without her and we are truly lucky to have had her as our photographer. She has a very unique way of taking photos that are both artful and traditional. She is able to really tune into your energy as a couple and translate that into something you can enjoy for years to come.

Deonna and her team were awesome!! Weeks before the wedding, Deonna made time to have a few consultations about the wedding, the timeline and the must have photos. She was incredibly easy to work with..really flexible, but most of all extremely talented! We love our photos! Deonna provided us with so many options...in color, black and white. She captured the day so well, each time we look through the photos, we re-live the magic of our wedding day. An added bonus--Deonna's turn around time is second to none--upon our return from the honeymoon, she had photos ready for us to review. I was compelled to write a review because our experience with Deonna was so grand. Thank you Deonna and team for a wonderful day and overall experience!

I used Deonna and her team to capture our wedding day almost a year ago! I originally met her through a close friend so I had some knowledge of her work. My husband and I had a fairly short engagement and were wedding planning out of state. We have also been a part of quite a few weddings so we had a good idea of what we wanted. When we started to gather quotes for various wedding vendors, we were pleasantly surprised to see how affordable Deonna was compared to other Chicago vendors.

A few days before our wedding, I provided a list of photos we wanted throughout the day. Deonna customized the list to maximize time and efficiency at the various locations. She also scouted out several locations throughout our reception that had not crossed my mind. I really loved that she was able to track down so many friends and family throughout the night without having to follow me around. I was able to enjoy our entire reception! You can't beat the price and professionalism you will receive from Deonna Caruso Photography. One year later, we are still thrilled with our photos!

A few days before our wedding, I provided a list of photos we wanted throughout the day. Deonna customized the list to maximize time and efficiency at the various locations. She also scouted out several locations throughout our reception that had not crossed my mind. I really loved that she was able to track down so many friends and family throughout the night without having to follow me around. I was able to enjoy our entire reception! You can't beat the price and professionalism you will receive from Deonna Caruso Photography. One year later, we are still thrilled with our photos! Read less

My husband and I are so happy we hired Deonna Caruso as our photographer to capture our wedding day!! We were married on 6/16/12 and had the pleasure of having Deonna Caruso (and her assistant Ernst) take our pictures throughout the entire wedding day, from the ‘getting ready’ moments in the morning with our wedding party at the hotel all the way until we were dancing into the night at our dinner reception. We are glad we hired Deonna as our photographer because she captured many special and heartfelt moments throughout the day--so much that when we saw our pictures afterwards, they told our wedding day story so perfectly, just as we remembered it! She also took great pictures of both me and my husband along with and our families, friends and guests who attended! Both our formal and informal photos came out looking beautiful. Deonna even captured the decor, flowers, favors and other wedding day details which I asked her to do since we had put so much time into the details of our wedding day to make it special and we wanted to remember those as well. We are so delighted with all of the photographs Deonna took of our wedding day and I’ve gotten many compliments on the photos since getting them back because everyone and everything looks so beautiful and picturesque!

Deonna was always very professional and responsive to emails or questions. She also was open to what we were looking for--I knew with Deonna we weren't going to just get "cookie cutter" wedding photographs. Deonna helped us before the wedding decide on ‘must have’ photos and sent us a list of helpful hints about getting our photos taken on the wedding day, which we could share with everyone in the wedding party.

I would definitely recommend Deonna Caruso Photography to any couple getting married!!! With Deonna, you can trust your entire day will be captured beautifully and that you’ll end up in love with all your wedding day photos.

We loved Deonna!!! She was a great Photographer from beginning (engagment photos) to the end (wedding). She was extremely responsive through email and phone, she answered all of our questions. she worked with us to get our engagement photos done quickly since my husband travels alot. She was early for the wedding and took great pics. She had to wrangle 40 people together for our group shots and she didn't miss a beat. Her 2nd photographer Tracy was great too! She made the photos fun! I would highly recommend her!!!

I can only provide wonderful feedback about Deonna. We had contacted countless photographers via email and personally met with 3 other photographers prior to meeting with Deonna and at the risk of sounding corny, we knew right away she was the right photographer for us. My husband and I had discussed what we wanted in a photographer and she met all those categories. Her photography was clear and crisp; she captured peoples emotions without them knowing; she had a creative edge; she was calm and pleasant; she was excited to meet with us and was genuinely happy for us; she took time to get to know us and made great recommendations; she listened and followed through with what we wanted; she was within our budget range :) In addition, Deonna was punctual with emails/phone calls and was very reliable as the day came closer and most importantly, was everywhere we needed her to be on our wedding day. It is through Deonna's pictures that we can relive every moment of our day and we can't thank her enough for that!
We are more than pleased with both our engagement and wedding photos. It is without a doubt I recommend Deonna!

My husband and I feel so fortunate to have had Deonna as our wedding photographer. Deonna was recommended to me by another photographer (which speaks volumes about her) and was absolutely great to work with. I was impressed, from the very beginning, with her professionalism and attentiveness. I didn't send Deonna too many emails but, any time I did, she wrote back almost immediately and I felt like she really cared.

It's easy to see that Deonna loves what she does because she is fun to be around but takes her work very seriously. A few months after we'd booked Deonna as our wedding photographer, I decided that I wanted to do an engagement photo shoot, too. I emailed her about it and she got back to me the same day, very enthused about doing an engagement session. We did our engagement session in the beginning of January... outdoors... in Chicago and Deonna was nothing but cheerful and patient the entire time. What a pleasure and a great experience!

I would recommend Deonna to be any brides wedding photographer. Her work's beautiful, she's extremely detail-oriented, professional and will make any bride (or groom) feel comfortable. She took beautiful photos at our wedding and has created memories for my family and I to keep for a lifetime.

I would highly recommend Deonna as a photographer. Although I have not seen the wedding pictures yet, the photos she took for the engagement session were wonderful. The day of the wedding, Deonna was prompt and courteous. She took all of the pictures that were "must haves" for us. She arranged for a 2nd photographer who also arrived on time and was a pleasure to work with. They both stayed well into the reception time so they were able to capture photos of the entire event. I know that we will be happy with the results. She also included a wedding album in her pricing which I thought was important since a lot of photographers now charge extra for that. She was very accomodating in meeting with us and responding to questions we had during the planning phase. She was flexible with changes we made for the 2nd photographer the day of the wedding as well. I would highly recommend her services for any event or photo session.

Deonna was great to work with. The photos she took of our wedding were absolutely amazing. I love how she was able to capture natural, unposed moments that really embodied the spirit of the day.

Throughout the process, Deonna was extremely professional and friendly. She always responded to emails very promptly and was very helpful at walking us through the process. The day of the wedding, Deonna did a great job finding beautiful ideas for shots and helping keep me and the bridesmaids on schedule as we got ready. At the wedding Deonna was unobtrusive and I barely noticed she was there.

Overall, my husband and I couldn't be happier with Deonna and her work. We are so thrilled to have such beautiful photos from our wedding and would highly recommend Deonna.

Deonna was hands down my favorite person to work with during our wedding (and we had some great people helping us!). Photography was really important to both of us and we were nervous finding a photographer on the internet. Once we came across Deonna's website and saw her portfolio and all the amazing things people said, we were at ease. When we met with her, we signed that day to make sure no one else stole her for our day :) She is so, so nice and you will have a hard time finding someone more talented. She is very flexible with everything and captured so many wonderful pictures at our wedding. Thank you, Deonna, for giving us such great memories of our special day!

My husband and I got married this past June 2010 and couldnt have asked for a better day. We had the most amazing photographer...Thank you Deonna. You captured the most beautiful pictures I've ever seen. I will cherish them forever. I've had nothing but amazing comments about my wedding photos. People have commented on how beautiful they are and who was the photographer and how talented you are. I would absolutely recommend Deonna as a photographer from the amazing pictures to her amazing personality. She made my family feel so comfortable and was so easy to talk to. Wish you lived here in Cincinnati I want to have a family photo done for Christmas and wish it was you who would be taking them. Amazing, amazing and beautiful!! Thank you so much Deonna from my family to yours. Your passion for photography definitely shines through your photos. Wish you the best in all you do. Love The Pace Family.

We were lucky to find Deonna among the sea of wedding photographers out there. Plenty of friends receommended the people they used, but after meeting Deonna (she came to our house which was nice) we could see she was passionate about her business and truly cared about our day. We had her do our engagement pictures in addition to our wedding and LOVED her work!

On our wedding day we had a busy picture schedule and timing was tight, but Deonna did a great job of getting the shots we needed and moving the group along. At the ceremony and reception you wouldn't have even known she was there as she moved through the crowd capturing candid and genuine moments with our guests. Her work is done well and her pictures are gorgeous!

Deonna is worth every penny and will give you the piece of mind to enjoy yourself knowing your pictures are in good hands. We 100% recommend her work and think you'd be crazy to use anyone else for such an important part of your wedding.

I would like to start by saying that I don't think you can finda better photographer out there. I started my search and ended it all in the same night. As soon as I say Deonna's portfolio I fell in love with her style. She has a very clasical intamate look to her photos. Exactally what I was looking for. I worked with her over 9 months and as pervious posters have stated she is very quick to responde and just so sweet. The day of our wedding she arrived at our venue early to take shots of the wedding grounds. . as it was outside. She met me and my girls at our dressing rooma and took photos there. . then proceeded to the men's dressing room. . where i found out later the poor girl was nearly thrown out by all the bashfull men. . anyways. . she took so many awesome photos and somehow never got in the way. MANY of our guests gave me many many compliments on her personality and willingness to try and get everyshot (I have to tell you I had her running all over the place.) Her pricing was very competative and for future referance take her advice and write down a list of the pictures that you would like her to take after teh ceremony. . I will be reccomending her to anybody that needs a photographer in the future :) (her pictures are so stunning that i cannot look at them without tearing up)

You wouldn't think that you'd find your perfect wedding photographer from a Google search, but that's exactly what happened for us. We got several referrals from friends and wound up interviewing three shooters. Of the three, Deonna was the only one we found on our own by searching online, and she came in with the best blend of great work, value, and personality.

Her work speaks for itself, and we're very happy with the quality of the photos she took on our wedding day. We continue to get comments from friends and family about how great our photos are. Her pricing is also very competitive, representing a great value. On top of that she's a genuinely nice person who's easy to be around. But what I'm most impressed with is her responsiveness and willingness to do whatever it takes to make us happy. When I send her an email, I don't think I've ever waited more than an hour or two for a reply. Most days it seems like she's sitting in front of her computer all day! It's great to be able to count on a quick answer when you need one. Additionally, whatever we threw at her (and continue to throw at her), she makes it work. No suggestion or question is met with anything other than a positive attitude and desire to make us happy. All businesses should be run that way!

I would never hesitate to recommend Deonna. She really was the perfect photographer for our wedding. You should give her a shot, she won't disappoint you!

After months of searching for a photographer in Milwaukee, we didn't find anyone that fit our personality or our budget. Since we live in Chicago, we decided to continue the search in Chicago and that is when we found Deonna. From the start, she was all about service and had no issue with traveling to Milwaukee (which proved to be true as we had a blizzard the day of our wedding!). We fell in love with Deonna's photojournalistic style and her services were exactly what we had been looking for - all day coverage, flush mount albumn and a second photographer so we were able to capture all of those separate bride/groom getting ready shots plus different angles on all of the festivities for the night. Her creativity, responsiveness, professionalism, personality and flexibility is something every couple deserves for their wedding day - she captured the moments that we will cherish for a lifetime. Thank you Deonna!

Deonna also edited the pictures in such a way where it captured the look and feel of my wedding while having the traditional shots every wedding needs! I would highly reccommend her to any bride. Not to mention you get so many options from the photo albulm to controlling every aspect of your photos online. She is extremely talented and it shows in every photo! Read less

We were so blessed to be able to work with Deonna on our big day. She was so easy to get intouch with through the entire process from begining to end. She made us feel very much as ease and captured such wonderful moments in our pictures. We really couldn't have asked for more, the pictures are beautiful!

Deonna is the perfect person to have photographing all the intimate moments that happen on your wedding day. She felt like part of the family! And, then again, she was never "in the way" but somehow managed to capture everything that happened.

Many of our guests also commented on how nice she was. She was game for anything (people grabbing her saying "hey will you take a picture of this?" and dealt with, literally, rain AND snow at an outdoor ceremony without batting an eyelash) and was a wonderful addition to the event.

She was the first person to arrive that day last one to leave the reception! Now that's commitment! She was amazing and just as nice as can be.

We've already realized that her photos are a gift that are more treasured every time we look at them.

Thank you, Deonna!

Deonna is a pleasure to work with. I hired her to do both my "weddings." My first wedding was a very small intimate affair and it was done at the last minute. Deonna was the only one that responded to my request and was available. My second wedding was a hugh party at U.S. Cellular Field. The pictures were beautiful from both ceromonies. I would highly recommend Deonna!! I know when my husband and I start a family, I will only use Deonna to take my children's pictures!!

Deonna took our photos for our June wedding, and she and her second shooter did an excellent job. The photos are very timeless and classic, which is exactly what I wanted. She was always very responsive and helpful, also. I appreciate that she doesn't use any odd special effects, which is something I avoided in my photographer search. If you want any especially creative, out-of-the-box poses or photos, just be sure to ask and she will definitely be accommodating. Another thing is that Deonna was very patient in including our dog in photos, which I know had to be difficult since he was distracted by all the people around, but they turned out wonderful and the ones with him in it are totally priceless! I would definitely recommend Deonna and her beautiful work!

My friend used Deonna a couple of years ago and I loved her pictures. So when I got married I knew I wanted to use Deonna as well. She was very easy to work with, she responded to my emails right away, and of course the pictures turned out beautifully. The pictures were very artistic and looked like they could be in a bridal magazine. The traditional pictures turned out great, too! We got our pictures in the time frame Deonna had originally told us, which was really important to us. Also, she showed up on time for pictures in the morning and was waiting for us at all the locations we traveled to. Her second photographer was just as professional. She listened to different requests I had for pictures and shot all the ones I asked for. I also like her blog because she posts a preview of wedding pictures before all the other ones are ready. One of the most important reasons why I went with Deonna is because we get the rights to all our pictures. I have already recommended Deonna to other friends who are getting married and I would continue to recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great photographer.

We used Deonna for our engagement photos and wedding photography. Deonna was very responsive and timely to answer emails. She answered all and any questions you may have in a timely fashion. The day of the wedding, she had a second photographer which was great because then she could be with the bride all day. :) She took all of the pictures we had asked for the wedding. Photos were edited and we were given a CD of all the photos very quickly! I think it only took 4 weeks to get all of our wedding photos back! Overall, Deonna was easy to work with and takes great photos to capture the big day!
