We made an unfortunate choice of photographer for my only son's wedding. They were highly recommended, but we experienced horrible service and the photos were not professional quality. The lighting was poor and many shots were from the side where you couldn't see faces. A wedding guest took better quality shots! Thank goodness he was there so we have some decent photos. The photographer, Jenny was not responsive and brushed us off when we asked when the outdoor photos were to be taken (she took none) and only took photos in the venue lobby. She missed some critical shots (like groom and mother), parents dancing, and in front of the chuppah. When asked to follow the list of photos requested she ignored us. She took photos of the mother of the groom in street clothes when she was specifically asked not to. And since all photos were in the lobby, lots of guests were milling about. Total confusion.
As if that wasn't enough, after over six weeks of waiting when we were notified our photos were ready for viewing and sending after payment, they did not send them to the contracted party who paid for them(the parents) after agreeing to, but instead called the groom and sent them to him. This totally ruined the surprise Christmas presents for bride & groom and grandparents. I would not recommend this photographer to anyone! Spend the extra money and get a top notch photographer!

Our experience with Edward Fox was wonderful! The studio manager, Lisa, was always quick to respond, organized, and knowledgable. John Paul was the photographer who shot our wedding and he took beautiful photographs and had a lot of creative ideas. He was also very enthusiastic and fun to work with! My sister found him to be a tad rude, as he didn't bother to learn any names and referred to her as "sister," which she found to be insensitive. Other than that I have no complaints and would absolutely recommend them!

For our wedding day we hired Edward Fox Photography, with the lead photographer being David Loeb. I cannot say enough wonderful things about David Loeb. He is a true artist, he is creative, he is talented, he is funny and he made the entire process so much fun. My husband, like most men, hates taking pictures. He was dreading this part of our day, however, David made the entire process so much fun. Throughout the day, not once did I hear my husband complain about having to take pictures.
David was always available for questions, he would promptly return phone calls and emails. He was also very accommodating. With the stress of the wedding day, I forgot to bring a wedding invitation with me, so that David can take some creative photographs of my handmade invitations. David knew the wedding invitation was important to me and he assured me it was no problem, and he asked me drop off the invite at the studio the week after the wedding so that he can take some pictures of it. Another thing I loved about David was that a few days after our wedding, David emailed us a few amazing teaser pictures so we were able to immediately order our thank you cards.
Overall, I would highly recommend David! He is amazing at what he does!

Our photographer Zandro was more than we could have asked for. He was extremely professional and fun at the same time. By the end of the event it was more like he was a friend taking photos for us at the wedding instead of someone we had just met earlier that day. He took into account all the photos we wanted and had a lot of fun ideas for shots we would never have though of. He was sure to let us look at many of the photos he shot while on the spot so we were sure that we were getting quality work. I would definitely suggest Edward Fox and specifically Zandro to anyone looking for great work at their wedding!

Chicago Brides: do yourselves a favor and hire Jenny Fontaine to photograph your wedding. You won't be sorry!

Jenny is beyond talented. I just got a look at my photos and am over the moon!! She has a wonderful personality, and balances being organized and running things on a schedule without being...well...you know. I had a blast with her all day long, and she got along perfectly with my friends and family. Sometimes personalities just don't gel, which can affect how the pictures come out, but she kept everyone laughing and with genuine smiles on their faces.

We met with Jenny a few weeks before the wedding, and I have to say, she did literally everything that I asked. Table pictures, getting ready pictures, etc. She also had some amazing ideas about where to go downtown and ended up shooting absolutely marvelous shots. I will be glowing over these pictures for years to come.

I could not ask for better pictures or to be happier.

I had the best experience with Edward Fox, our photographer was David Loeb, and I have to say that he did an amazing job. He gave us the scare of our life when he decided to take a picture of us driving in the limo and him from his car (yikes!!!) - Can't wait to see that one!!! And he was very detail oriented in every single shot...I received the teaser pics and we totally went crazy with every single one!!! His time and dedication made every detail memorable!!! Totally recommend Edward Fox for anyone who loves detailed pictures...ask for David too!!!

David Loeb was my photographer for my beautiful Friday wedding in Hoffman Estates. We had the best day possible for our outdoor ceremony and David took the most amazing photos! He sent me 10 teaser shots exactly 1 week after the wedding like he told me and they were just fantastic! He added one of them on his facebook page (one of my husband playing with my flower girl and tossing her into the air) He added this photo to his portfolio and informed me that he has had over 1000 hits on it! :-) David was great, energetic with a great personality. He is straight to the point and didnt miss any moment! He took every photo that I wanted to make sure we took and more. The entire Edward Fox staff was wonderful, I was mostly talking with Brenda in the Roselle office prior and she was just awesome. I would recomment Edward Fox and David Loeb to anyone who is looking for a photographer. Best of luck to the new Brides!

We had the best experience with Edward Fox; from start to (just about) finish. Our sales experience with Jenee S. wasn't pushy; but, patient and politely responsive. Jenee was forthcoming in her correspondence and very honest. She really set the bar high.

Enter our photographer, Jenny F. C (husband) and I met with Jenny in August (just about a month before our wedding date) for an engagement session. She had us at, 'Was it the camera that gave it away?'.

Jenny is out-of this world. Kind, patience, just-the-right-amount-of bossy, sincere, professional, friendly, funny, honest, and, did I mention AMAZING photographer?! She's a catch in the sea of wedding photographers. C and I had the best experience with Jenny! Jenny took personal time out of her schedule to chat with C and I about our wedding day. She asked tons of question, was intrigued, and, ultimately, excited for us. Jenny spent the morning capturing details of getting ready for 'I Do's', and our First Look. C and I opted for a more traditional ceremony. We said our 'I Do's' at Old St. Pat's (OSP) in Chicago, where Jenny had reassured us that she's photographed many, many times before. Both C and I were overwhelmed with the attention and service Jenny provided.

My best advice: Book with Edward Fox and request Jenny. Jenny will capture your day just as you've always imagined it.

Our venue recommended this company to us. We planned our wedding from out of state and didn't have a lot of personal recommendations. We contacted Lisa, the office manager about looking into the photographers portfolios. After looking through the 5 photographers that were available for our date, she has us pick our top 3 choices. We did get our number one choice, Todd who has been in the profession for almost 20 years! Todd really made our day. He was helpful, reminding us to take breaks, drink water, eat food. When we met Todd, he asked us what type of pictures we wanted and took our suggestions. We had a great time with Todd and we know he enjoyed us too. After we did our good-bye shot, he had about 30 mins left before his contracted ended. Todd ended up staying another hour, complimentary, because he was having so much fun. I would absolutely recommend Edward Fox Photography and personally recommend Todd!

LOVED our experience with Edward Fox; more specifically our photographer Jenny Fontaine. She showed up early while my bridesmaids and I were getting ready and got right to work. She took so many detail shots that I was not even aware of until my Mom informed me. She was so quick and was not intruding on our morning. She was extremely professional and great at sticking to a schedule. She recalled all the important photos I wanted and even the ones my Mom wanted (I didn't even know about). Jenny quickly and efficiently took all our family photos after the church. She nicely rounded up the people needed for a photo and moved everyone in and out quickly. This allowed for extra time taking photos in other locations. She is extremely creative and made our day fun. Jenny remained professional throughout the whole day and was a joy to be around. She most certainly was an important part of our day and knowing you spend all day with your photographer I was so happy to have her. I highly recommend Edward Fox to meet your photography needs and if she is available I HIGHLY recommend Jenny Fontaine.

I selected Edward Fox based on my mother's familiarity with the company. Not being able to select my photographer ahead of time was a bit of a gamble in my opinion but since Jenny Fontaine was my photographer I really can say it was well worth the wait. Jenny was absolutely fantastic on the day of the wedding, she was unobtrusive, pleasant, funny and worked very well with my large wedding party of 20. She made sure we worked as quickly as possible so that I could get as many of the custom shots that I wanted. I've seen a few of the shots from the day of the wedding and I'm just so excited to see the final product. I really appreciated her creative thinking and artistic eye. Should I ever use Edward Fox again I will definitely request Jenny again, she was fantastic.

Do not order a picture book from these people. We are almost at 9 months and no picture book. They keep telling is its going to be longer and its our fault it is taking so long. They took great pics but buy the CD and make a picture book yourself it will be much faster.

David Loeb was our photographer with Edward Fox and did an absolutely fantastic job for our wedding. The wedding prior to ours ran a half hour late, leaving us 30 minutes before the ceremony and 15 minutes after to get all the ceremony venue shots we wanted. David kept everyone relaxed during the commotion and was able to get the shots with time to spare. He was an absolute pro and the photos we've seen thus far have been excellent.

We used Edward Fox for our photographer. After meeting with a few different companies I was very happy and comfortable with Edward Fox. Their options for packages I felt were the best and loved the options for album choices. I felt they were the most professional. Our photographer, Ladio Vasak, was so incredible. He has amazing vision and creativity to give you great pictures. I would definitely use Edward Fox for any event we would require a professional photographer for and request Ladio to take them.

Huge shoutout to our photographer David Loeb with Edward Fox Photography. He was fun to work with and this guy just knows what he's doing. We already knew he'd do a great job because he photographed my husband's sister's wedding 3 years ago. We received some teaser photos a few days after the wedding and can't wait to see the rest. They are gorgeous!

Advice - Just listen to what he says and let him do his thing. You'll love the final product.

We used Edward Fox because we believed that they are very reputable and has been around for a long time. Our photographer is John Dawling. However, we are quite disappointed with the service. The wedding begins at 11 am and John arrived at 11.17 am!! How can you count on someone to arrive later than your guests? The last thing the bride and groom need on this day is to be nervous about things like this. We actually have to wait for the photographer to start our ceremony, NOT the bride! How ridiculous! Luckily, the rest of the day went well. The photographer also went back early, did not see him at end of the event, didn't even let us know that he's leaving.

We received the pictures after 6.5 weeks and 4 calls. The pictures came out well on the website. A total on 500 pictures were taken during the 5-hour event.

DO NOT use Edward Fox due to their services and the pain of going through the process. THINK THRICE before using them.

UPDATE(1/21/2013):
I decided to lower the rating due to the pictures. They looked good initially but now that I am making calenders and albums with them, I realized that there are A LOT of missing pictures.
-We got married on a top floor that over views the Chicago Skyline, no picture of that, but instead, there is a picture of the parking lot view?!!
-Photographer was late so no pictures of me getting ready at all
-We only have 10 people at the head table and there is not a single picture that captures the whole table. Our friend who attended the wedding took a picture of the ENTIRE head table with her phone camera so no excuse for the photographer to not.
-They also put the photo CD in an envelope instead of a hard case when mailling it to us.
-Edward Fox's customers have to use Pictage website/software by Edward Fox to order any picture products. I ordered 4 calenders and it is a painful painful experience to use Pictage. It is a headache and eye straining to view and select hundreds of your pictures from 1 inch thumbnails.

I LOVED David Loeb and Ania They were both my photographers on our special day and they were AMAZING! The only reason I reduce the perfect score is because Ed Fox as an org can be difficult to deal with. We had our engagement photo session and they did not make it clear that the jpegs would not be included in this price. I think that's just ridiculous considering how much money we are paying. I suggest they throw in getting one jpeg for free with their packages. I just wanted to make sure that David' name made it out there and that when you are trying to decide on your photographer that you check out his work!

We absolutely LOVED our photographer. He was AMAZING! He was nice, helpful professional and an absolute joy to work with! If I could hire him all over again I definitely would! I would hire him in an instant, however the company he works for has been causing me a huge headache. The company when we hired them had a location in Northville, MI; Chicago, IL; and Milwaukee, WI. A month before our wedding we got a letter in the mail saying that they have closed their MI office but their Chicago office would still provide us with a photographer and the same professional care our MI office provided. Wrong. First of all, we received cards with their website from the MI office for us to put in our thank you cards for people to view the photos exactly FOUR weeks from the event. Four weeks came and no pictures. We called and they said it is actually four to six weeks for photos and did not believe that our cards said four. There was nothing that we could do, so we waited. Six weeks came, still no photos so we called again. They were RUDE to my mother and made excuses that fall was their busiest time of year and they have brides book at the last minute. I booked 9 months before my event and I am penalized because your company over booked at the last minute?! Additionally, this was simply for viewing our photos. They were only posting them online so we could order our prints. That takes over six weeks?! Moreover, the manager who is in charge of posting the pictures wasn't even in that day to speak to, it is the busiest time over year, and they are running behind and he isn't even in the office? I have not been able to view my photos. My husband is in the service and lives in Germany. We have NO recent photos of us and I have been looking forward to these photos for over a month and I am unable to view them. I am so upset and angry.

I would recommend our photographer a million times over (he was beyond wonderful), but hire him as a free lance and do NOT go through Edwards.

Our photographer was David Loeb from Edward Fox Photography. David was great to work with. He arrived early and had pre-planned where he wanted to take our outdoor pictures. He was organized and was able to keep things running smoothly and on time. He was open to suggestions and had no problem taking any pictures we asked for. His shots were creative and well positioned. I would recommend David to any future brides.

Our photographer was David Loeb. I don't even know where to begin how FANTASTIC he was!! He really made our wedding day special! He was on time, has a GREAT personality, VERY professional and gave great direction to our wedding party and family during pictures. He was very professional from the moment he got to the house where the bride/bridesmaids were getting ready to the end of the reception. One of the best things about him that he almost seems to be your personal "wedding coordinator" too the day of... he was always asking if we needed anything, helping with fixing the veil, dresses, making sure we were happy and comfortable the day of!!! I think the best part about him is that when he is shooting he is very direct on what he wants for the pictures! This was great for us because I have a big family (with big personalities!) and he made sure he got everyone together to get the exact picture he needed. (he was EXCELLENT with keeping the "cough-cough "drunk" groomsmen in check too, making sure they were where they needed to be also!) LOL
About 10 days after the wedding he emailed us telling us how great our wedding was and how he really enjoyed shooting our wedding. He also attached 10 "teaser" pics that we could use to send out with our Thank You cards! We are still waiting for all of our pictures to be uploaded to look at. If they are 1/2 as amazing as our teaser pictures are then I'm sure that our wedding photos will be absolutely AMAZING!!!!
Thank You David, you are fantastic! :)

We requested a specific photographer (Rion Johnson) for our Wedding Day based on his previous work that we liked, and I couldn't be happier. We planned our wedding from out of state and we worried it would be more difficult to keep in touch with our vendors, however Edward Fox was very responsive to all of our calls and emails, and they listened to and executed all of our special requests. Rion arrived exactly when he said he would. As I was getting ready, he snapped some photos but was never too intrusive or in the way, which was great. I hardly noticed him at the church, though he was there taking pictures the whole time - again, not intrusive on us or our guests. We had a hard time gathering all of our family members for photos in the church after the ceremony, but he was VERY patient with us and he helped keep us on schedule. Sadly, it started to rain when we were out taking pictures at our next location. He didn't let that stand in the way of getting some great shots, while ensuring that none of us got wet! He incorporated umbrellas into the pictures and took some great candid shots that I can't wait to see. We had fun with him, and he had fun with us, and that's what I liked the most - our smiles were natural because we were all truly happy & having a great time! Rion captured candid moments & nothing was TOO posed - which is exactly what I wanted! He listened to all of our requests and ideas too! It was a pleasure working with Rion & everyone at Edward Fox, and we can't wait to see the final product!

My photographs and video were of utmost important to me the first on my list of "Whatever it Takes".
I researched lots of company to ontract this service to and Edward Fox took the lead.
The sales rep was highly competitive which is a good qulaity to have in this kind of business. Very driven and her sales pitch was absolutely phenomenal. She was helpful throughout the process and it seemed like she was my wedding planner. Communicated effectively and on a constant basis to make sure any last minute changes were accounted for and followed up on.
The photographer and videographer were a great team, they worked together so professionally and you knew they were great at thier work, very polite, hilarious and fun! I had a mini photo shoot while getting ready and i did not want it to stop because i felt like a model....lol
I booked both photography and videography as a package and you get good perks and free merchandises for booking both services.
The banquet hall i used also had them listed as #1 partner which also was a catalyst to my decision making.

Our photographers showed up early and ready to take pictures. They were extremely patient as my family snapped photos behind them (something I know can be frustrating for many photographers) and helped keep the day fun and easy throughout. I haven't received all my photos yet, but I have been able to see some and they have all been beautiful. I cannot wait for the rest!

David was my photographer and did 2 of my friends weddings. He did a fantastic job on theirs so I knew he'd do a great job on ours. Is very enthusiastic about his work and very creative. Photography for your wedding is definitely something you don't want to skimp on or roll the dice with. You can tell he's very passionate and creative. He has a great personality and gets everyone laughing for pictures. He did a fantastic job and all our guests couldn't stop saying such great things about him! Will recommend him every chance I get!!

Found Edward Fox at bridal show. I liked everything they had to offer, our meeting with a rep went great and was very confident. The day of the wedding, photographer clicked with us, which was great. My husband and I took pictures at a garden, beautiful setting. The downfall, about 75% of our pictures from there were the same awkward pose. It was hard to find decent pictures.

As the day went on, he seemed to get tired. I had to ask him to take pictures of my invites and other small detail. He missed several things, like one of my centerpiece designs and some DIY stuff we had. His pictures online looked great, but we didn't get great. I got pictures that looked like my friend took pictures of us :(

Album design took a while. Designer and I were not on the same page for most of the time, but after 6 designs, finally got it right. *** Crazy charge: $50 for black and white pictures with the "pop" of color.

Parents album did not have a lot of choices. It was either about $300 for a plastic (yes, PLASTIC) cover, or about $600 for a copy of our album. Not much of a selection. They even suggested taking the pictures and having a album made someplace else.

Great photography and videography. Our photographer was Jenny Fontaine and she did an amazing job. We knew she was cool when we met her before and found out she went to our same college. She was funny and very professional she knew all the good shots. She also was not in the way and was able to capture good pictures but not disrupt our celebration. I can not say enough great things about her and all the staff at Edward Fox.

We have only seen a snapshot of his work so far but it's beautiful. Everyone absolutely loved working with him. The family was amazed at how he just popped up right when they needed him!

I really have nothing bad to say about Edward Fox. Our sales consultant was very friendly, knowledgeable and responsive. She listened to what we wanted, was not pushy etc. One of our big must halves was a photographer who's personality would be a fit for ours. The assigned photographer was that, very low key and calm and professional, which was what we wanted.

Nothing bad to say about the photographer either, he called a couple days before the wedding, asked me lots of details and names, was on-time the day of, knew everyone's name and pretty much directed the show without being demanding. I pretty much let him have free reign, I didn't have any specific vision. He was creative and has some ideas, but I wasn't overly impressed with the creativeness. It didn't help that it was raining that day, so I'm sure there were things he was constrained from doing because of the weather.

The pictures are very nice, but I don't think anything spectacular. I did specifically request pictures of each table and just realized that there is not a picture of one of the tables. The woman I worked with for the album was great. I haven't seen the final product yet, but the proof was exactly what I wanted. I did end up having to upgrade to a bigger album, as we purchased their lowest, non-digital album package and it was too small to hold all of the photos I wanted.

If you need to save a bit of money and are looking for a company that will give you good, safe, pictures, you probably can't go wrong with Edward Fox, they've been in business forever. If the pictures are really, really important to you and you want more of an artsy feel, I'd either explore one of the more expensive packages they have to offer where you can pick your assigned photographer, or go with a smaller studio or independent person.

Right away the folks at Edward Fox were amazing! Charlene Martin was who I was in contact with all before the wedding. She is very personable and helpful. They are very flexible and we feel like we are getting a great deal with them! Our photographer was David Loeb. If you can, have him shoot your wedding! Us women had a snag getting out for the pictures before the wedding so we ended up being an hour late. David got pictures of the groomsmen and did what he could without us. I was very worried we wouldn't get any pictures I wanted since we didn't have much time left. David worked fast and got amazing shots! He was super professional and helpful. He was great with the kids and stubborn family members. My husband and I are still getting people talk about how impressed they were with our photographer. Thanks!

He did my niece's 18th cotillion party in 2008 and was really really nice so we requested for him becasue we wanted to get the same product back. He was able to take control of a very large group and take pictures in a time efficient way for the group photos. Our guests even commented at the event and afterwards about the great photographer and is the "BEST". David is really a pleasure to work with!!! We are very pleased with him. Thank you!

We hired Edward Fox photographer David Loeb after he came highly recommended to us. Charlene Martin in the office was a pleasure to work with. Our wedding went without any major hitches. Many things went well, and a few things didn't go as planned. One of the things that I did not anticipate having difficulties with was the photographer, as Mr. Loeb came highly recommended to me from several other friends that have used him in the past. Mr. Loeb was, unfortunately, the one factor that generated numerous complaints from my friends and family (all independent of each other).

First, I was a bit taken aback when Mr. Loeb arrived to our wedding
location and immediately lost points by stealing a pen specifically
purchased for our wedding guestbook/album. I know that he stole it
because I spent 3 months researching pens and finding one that is
suitable for archiving, is acid-free, and placed two of them on top of
our guest book for people to use when they signed in. Immediately upon meeting Mr. Loeb, I noticed that he was writing with the exact same pen I just placed on the table - and one of the pens was missing from the table. I kept it to myself because I didn't want to get into an
argument with someone I just met. But it was in poor taste of him to
take the pen, regardless of his reasons.

Secondly, I met with him quickly to let him know my expectations from
him (my shot list, urging him to take shots of all the details, girls
getting ready, pictures of the dress, her jewelry, shoes, etc. and
tried to emphasize that she was more important than I was on this
day). He interrupted me quickly and told me not to worry about
anything and to remember to enjoy my day. I relaxed a little after
that, but that proved to be a premature sentiment.

Mr. Loeb met the gentlemen in the designated meeting room (hotel room of one of the groomsmen), and while there, he proceeded to tell two startlingly explicit stories - one about doing a photo shoot of an
"attractive" woman and subsequently sleeping with her for 15+ hours
afterward, and another story about how shooting beautiful women was
the reason why he continued to pursue being a photographer. There is a time and a place for such tales, but the wedding day of a client
certainly isn't one of them. Needless to say, I was a bit nervous
having him go into the room where my fiancee was getting ready.

Unfortunately, my suspicions were realized when my wife came up to me furious (after the wedding) about Mr. Loeb. She informed me that he did not get any photos of her dress prior to her putting it on, he
took no photos of her jewelry or other details we requested of him,
and at one point when my wife requested him to take photos of her
getting the final zip-up, he responded with, "I'll get it later...we
can fake it," which never happened. Adding insult to injury, he was
extremely flirtatious with the bridesmaids, taking several photos of
himself with the girls, getting to the point where the Matron of Honor
came to the groomsmen area to let me know of her discomfort with him in the room. She also added that he was extremely pushy (verbally and physically - pushing her away to get the photo [instead of
repositioning himself]), overbearingly present in that he was talking,
joking, interfering with the girls' activities as if he was a family
member/friend in the wedding party, and "cocky."

Additionally, we pushed up the wedding start time from 5:30pm to 3:30pm to avoid seeing each other prior to the ceremony, and to give Mr. Loeb at least 2 hours to take all the photos we could prior to the cocktail hour so we would be able to enjoy ourselves and not have to worry about leaving the party to take photos. We even paid for an extra hour of open bar service to accommodate this plan. Mr.
Loeb did take photos after the ceremony but only took photos for about an hour or so. This was fine with us, so we began to mingle with our guests. Mr. Loeb subsequently interrupted us on numerous occasions to take another shot, and another shot, and so on, so bad to the point where I had to say "no" to him. It wasn't like these were shots that needed to be done at that precise moment. They were simply "oh, I forgot to take this photo" moments that aggravated me and my wife. Mr. Loeb was also very aggressive with several of the guests, shoving them around to get the right lighting, etc. I had 4 guests come up to me to tell me that had an encounter with Mr. Loeb. FOUR guests, all independent of one another. It angers me to no end that four guests, the Matron of Honor, my wife, and I all separately had unfavorable interactions with Mr. Loeb.

And finally, Mr. Loeb contacted my wife via Facebook to request that
she add him as a friend. Normally I would not bat an eyelash at this
type of thing, but with the manner in which he handled himself at our
wedding and coupled with the fact that he did not reciprocate the
friend request to me as well, further solidifies his unprofessional
actions and overall creepiness.

I do not recommend his services and recommend that you search elsewhere.

I would recommend Edward Fox to anyone looking for the best in photography. Let me start by saying my husband and my sister-in-laws went to Edward Fox last year for portrait/family pictures for their parents' anniversary and they came out BEAUTIFUL!! I believe Ben was their photographer. So it was a no-brainer we'd hire Edward Fox for our wedding photography. Linda in sales was so nice to us and made us feel comfortable right away. She worked with our budget and we left happy after putting down our deposit to hold our date. We got a free engagement on-site session with David and he did a great job capturing some great photos in three different locations. We were happy! Then we ordered our guestbook with photos from our engagement session and boy am I happy we paid the extra money for it. Our guestbook is gorgeous and everyone raved about it at our wedding!
But what really blew me away was when we found out Andre LaCour would be our photographer for our wedding. A few days before the wedding Andre called me and we went over all the details and locations we'd be going to for photos. He made sure to jot down any small details that I'd want captured in our photos. He made sure he got shots of EVERYTHING and EVERYONE. Andre had an assistant and another staff photographer with him (I paid for one photographer and got 3!). They arrived a little early to set up and started snapping pictures right away. Had it not been for Andre I would have never been brave enough to step out in the rainstorm to take pictures. But I am so glad he gave me the courage because it was definitely worth it! My wedding day was perfect and stress-free. I couldn't be happier with the service I received at Edward Fox and the photos are just break-taking!!! If I had to do it all over again, I'd definitely go with Edward Fox....no doubt about it! Andre LaCour is an exceptional, artistic photographer! You will not be disappointed!

Mr. Mariusz Mroczkowski from Edward Fox did the most amazing job for us at our wedding 2 weeks ago. He did a great job researching the area around our venue and found a great park to do some photographs before the wedding. He knew both wedding parties by first name, and even knew our famiily members by first name. He was super creative with setting up shots and really took control and knew what he was doing. Such a nice and gentle guy. Very laid back, down to earth and super fun to be around! Very reasonably priced and worth every penny. Jill and I definitely feel we made a new friend in Mariusz :-)

Thanks Mariusz!

Edward Fox was vey easy to work with and a great deal financially. They are in the category with other much higher cost photographers and do an A+ job. Our photographer was DAVID LOEB and he was FABULOUS!! He was self-directed and very professional. I still have people that attended my wedding commenting on how great the photographer was-I had never heard of that. Now that the photos are in-I have been receiving even more compliments on him. He was able to do the large group photos at a very fast and efficient pace (my husband is from a very large family and there are many little kids). He was did the candids wonderfully too. He moved throught the crowd getting the pictures he needed, but not seem apparent. I have seen many photos that I didn't even realize David was taking the picture. I would 100% recommend him!! Thank you David!

David Loeb was the photographer at the wedding of my son Michael and his bride Brittany in January 2011. David did a fantastic job from start to finish. He is extremely organized and remembers the names of the entire wedding party immediately. David makes it a very memorable moment when the groom sees the bride for the first time. The wedding party photos with the family at our hotel were wonderful. David photographed the wedding party on the trolley and at several locations around Chicago. Next was a gorgeous ceremony at St. Patricks Church captured by David. The reception lasted until 12 and David was there until the end. We have over 900 fantastic photos thanks to David!
I would highly recommend David Loeb at Edward Fox Photography!!!!!

Overall my pictures were beautiful and our photographer was a ton of fun, however I did not get what I wanted. I picked Edward Fox because of the artistic and candid pictures and I received a lot of \"everyone get together and smile\" pictures. That was exactly what I said I didn\'t want...and asked the photographer twice not to do. Also, I didn\'t need 20+ pictures of my limo (empty) and 20+ the band(who was no relation to me) when many of my guests were not photographed and key elements, like bouquet toss and bridal party pictures were missed.

I have worked on trying to communicate with those I need to in order to speed the process up, but have been unsuccessful. I am very unhappy with the service and how they show such little regard for something my husband and I spent a fortune on. We choose this company to avoid this exact situation and am very displeased that I have to experience this. I will never recommend this company, especially not for the amount of money you pay for their packages.

My husband and I were married on October 3, 2010 in Madison, Wisconsin and had the honor and privilege of having our wedding photographed by David Loeb of Fox Photography. I first was introduced to David’s work back in my college days when he shot the engagement photos of a friend. This was thirty years ago, but I can still see these images in my mind’s eye! I was struck by how he had managed to capture the essence of these two people in those few shots. A number of years later when a friend was looking for a photographer for her wedding, I told her about the photos David had taken and suggested she use him. She did and her wedding photos are stunning.

When Jim asked me to marry him the two things I was certain of were where I wanted to get married and who I wanted to photograph the wedding. Once I was able to nail down the venue, I had to track David down. I knew he no longer resided in Wisconsin, but I had no idea where he had moved. Thank God for the internet because it only took me a few google searches to find him at Fox Photography in Chicago…a hop, skip and a jump from Madison!

Working with David went far beyond my expectations, he is the consummate professional and his artistic vision is impeccable. I am a planner by nature and by profession, so letting go of the control of an event is difficult. David made it easy for me to let go and enjoy the day, the surroundings and my family and friends.

My respect for David runs deep, both as an artist and a human. Our memories of the day shine brightly in our minds and our hearts, but the artistry of David’s photographs are visual testaments to the beauty and absolute joy of our day.

While looking at the teaser photos David sent us shortly after the wedding, my husband saw one of the shots of me and said, “You are so beautiful!” His reaction to that shot is priceless to me. David has such a wonderful gift and we feel incredibly fortunate to have been able to have his art infuse not only our memories of the day, but the rest of our lives.

My emails and calls were returned quickly and I felt the level of service was great. We didn't get to meet our photographer until the day of the event, however. I did get to speak with her on the phone two days prior to the wedding, but we never were able to meet in person. We used Kyla as our photographer, and despite only getting to meet her that day, we LOVED her! She showed up on time and knew what photos were important to me (from our phone conversation). She did a wonderful job! The only issue was that she came without an assistant, and with a TON of equipment. She carried everything from the chapel to the reception site (which was a block away) herself. I felt bad for her, so I had my bridesmaids help a little. Since she had so much stuff, there was a slight delay while she set up things, but it was probably my fault for telling her to come to the hotel instead of setting up at the chapel first. In the end, I think it was all worth it, because she got all the pictures I wanted and never complained about having to move all the stuff around! She was very professional and fun to work with. I would definitely recommend Edward Fox Photography and Kyla for anyone getting married.

Creatively and artistically, you cannot find a more talented photographer than Ben Newton in our opinion. His photos are so impressive and while I do not know a bunch about photography his use of the elements and various lenses is nothing short of spectacular. On top of his talents, he is such a cool guy and for someone that you spend almost your entire wedding day with, huge bonus. We could not recommend someone more highly to capture your special day, you will not be disappointed and we would also absolutely recommend getting engagement photos, not only for the obvious benefit of the pictures but it is also kind of like a dress rehearsal where we learned how Ben works and it only made for a better/smoother wedding day in terms of pictures. My suggestion though no matter which photographer you chose is to put together a photo list so you don't look back later and wish you had certain photos. In terms of the studio, the ladies that we worked with at Edward Fox were good and pretty responive and while we've only seen the pdf, I feel confident in saying that Sarah did an awesome job on our album.

My wife and I did business with Edward Fox Photography for our wedding in the summer of 2010. We live in Arizona, so doing an out-of-state wedding was pretty stressful, but thankfully we dealt with Brenda Nicolin. She made this experience possible for several reasons:

She was pleasant and always pacient when speaking to us. She sounds genuine every time whether we talk to her on the phone or in person, which helps a lot with reassuring us that everything would run smoothly.
Brenda is also well-organized. She knew us by name and seldom had to be reminded of which clients we were, for which she quickly had our notes in front of her and could remind us often of what the details of our package included. She helped accomodate our budget as much as possible, giving us confidence that every dollar we put into Edward Fox was reasonable at the very least.
Her personality reflects her professionalism and as long as Brenda is contributing to the company, we intend to do business with Edward Fox again. Our friends and family have already heard so many great things about our experience thanks to Brenda and when you as a potential client decide to work with Edward Fox, I hope you ask for Brenda Nicolin to work with you. I doubt that anyone could top the dedication and enthusiasm she has to making her clients happy.

THANKS BRENDA!

He had a good mix of candid and classic. A+ across the board.

Marcia was also extremely great to work with and always took the time to help us out with any questions we might have with extreme patience. She was also great with her flexibility. Again, A+.

Edward Fox was also wonderful to work with. They were quick to respond to any questions or concerns and very flexible in scheduling appointments and meetings. The value was also great! We received so many bonus fpictures in our package since we signed a contract after going to a bridal expo. Overall, I highly recommend them as a wedding photographer.

He is incredibly talented, professional, and wonderfully easy to work with. His fantastic sense of humor and laid back personanilty really helped to put my husband at ease, as he REALLY wasn't looking foward to all of the picture-taking. I appreciated the perfectionist side of him.....how well he took all of my worries away and let me relax knowing we were in good hands that day. He truly captured both formal and candid moments of our special day so perfectly, and without any intrusion. Thanks to Andre, we can look forward to reliving our beautiful wedding day for years to come! We HIGHLY recommend Andre LaCour!!

They made sure to call us the week of and go over all the details of the day so that we knew where each other would be and when! It went very smoothly and I really think we got some great pictures! She let us pick out some things that we wanted to do which was tons of fun! Really focused on making that day all about what we wanted and not what "should be done" as I have heard of other photographers!

David Loeb was my photographer and he was AMAZING! He is creative and this allows him to obtain pictures that would rival the best in the city! He also does a good job with portraits and still shots in addition to the "action" shots. Although he can come off a bit pushy don't let stop you... trust me, he tells you exactly what he needs and how he needs it to get the best pictures for you. And the best thing is he will let you know if something is wrong with your make up, dress or if there is a piece of hair out of place. These are the things you want your photogrpaher to point out so that they don't annoy you later! :)

We also spent the extra money to have an "on location" engagement session with him. We went all around the city taking pictures one morning and it was great because we got to know him ahead of time and I felt really comfortable with him the day of the wedding! Plus, I took the pictures we bought from that session and put them in a photobook I created on-line and then had my guests sign that instead of a guest book. Who needs an old-fashioned guest book? We all have the addresses of people anyways in our computers so I had them sign our engagement picture book as if it were a yearbook! It worked great!

In the end, I would definitely recommend David. He is professional, creative, and after 30 years he really knows what he is doing!

Andre LeCour from Edward Fox Photography did an amazing job photographing my daughter's wedding. There are so many pictures that are works of art. The lighting and mood captured by his camera brought back the whole fairy tale evening to us! Portraits of our guests and the wedding party are both formal and candid and in either case expressed their personalities so well it was unbelievable. I would highly recommend him and his co-photographers to anyone... you will get photographs you will treasure your whole life!

Overall, we were happy with Ed Fox.

Our contact, Linda, over at the Lombard office was very nice, responsive, and professional.

I didn't care too much for our engagement pictures. They were okay, but the photographer taking them kept saying how amazing they were, and when we got them it was hard to find one we liked. We wanted to use that as a gift to our parents and it really wasn't the best picture I've seen of us.

Our photographer, Todd, called a few days before, as expected, and was really personable. He showed up right on time and my mom made a comment that she appreciated that he started to take pictures the second he walked in the door.

I liked our wedding party and family pictures. I wish I had a few more with my mom, but overall they were good. He only caught one picture of my dad walking me down the aisle and my dad's mouth is open (go figure), so that's that, I guess.

Todd was very flexible and even brought our guys' flowers from my parents' place to the groomsmen an hour away at our ceremony site. That helped us a lot and that was very nice of him.

Todd seemed to be everywhere during our reception.......he got LOTS of GREAT shots and we can't think of anyone super special to us that he missed. Well done for having a big party like that!

The only thing that raised a question was that we were told that we'd have a back drop set up at the reception site with a place to have more portrait pictures taken and that never happened. In my opinion, for the money we've paid, this day should've been flawless. I was surprised that that ball was dropped and no one mentioned a thing to us.

Having said all of this, our pictures are currently up on the website and we're really, really happy. It's not going to be a problem at all to put a really nice album together. Hopefully everything goes smoothly from here on out!

I think we probably could have gotten a better deal, but so far we're very happy with the service. We went with the $3500 package, which includes the rights to the photos, as well as a few books. make sure you sign up during a promotion. We got a free ipod, but there hage been better offers since then. We had Chris Cote, and he was very nice. We've only seen a couple pics so far though. They were extremely unflexible when it came to engagement pics though.

This is a really tough review to write. We went with Edward Fox because of their reputation and the fact that we liked their portfolio at one of the bridal shows that periodically pops up around town.

Before we talked wedding pictures we met with Marcia Cabrales who is just phenomenal! She was our consultant and our main "go-to" person. She was always making us laugh and was just a joy to work with. This is why in responsiveness I gave them a 4...and that's entirely because of Marcia!

On the other hand...we are not impressed with our day of photographer at all! I recall being told that we would be able to choose our photographer after seeing his/her portfolio. That never happened. If it wasn't for my day-of coordinator, I would have never known who my photographer was until the week of. As soon as I knew who I was having, I set up an appointment to further explain what we wanted and what we didn't want.

Our photographer was Sukit S. (he has an extremely long last name and I don't have the paper in front of me). When I met with him initially, I liked what I saw. My husband and I did not want your "typical wedding pictures" with your "typical wedding poses"...and that's exactly what Sukit didn't do...which is what we liked. As I talked with him, I was getting excited as to see what the final product would be like.

And then my wedding day came.

He arrived with his assistant around 1, like he said he would. He took some shots of my dress and of me getting ready...ok that's great...we were doing perfect. Then when it came for me and my girls, I was in the same position the entire time, sitting on a chair. I'm not sure how many pictures he took because I was always smiling and he was always playing with his camera.

I was too wrapped up in the moment to think about ceremony pictures. After the ceremony I wanted family pictures and bridal party. But we had to move fast...church was about to start. He played with his camera for about 10 mins while we all just sat around. I never got my family pictures and my bridal party pictures were so scattered, that when I looked at one of the pictures my guest took while Sukit was snapping away, I noticed that all the groomsmen except my brother were above everyone else...he had my brother on the side of the bridesmaids.

Another problem was at the waterfall on Higgins and River Rd. I paid the $50 so we could go around the entire waterfall...not just stand in front of it. We were in that same pose for who knows how long...so I bet I have about 50 pictures of 1 pose.

My main rule at the hall was that I wanted no one except my husband and me to see it first. This way we could have our special moment, let everything sink in and take really awesome pictures. Well, Sukit again was late in getting to the hall and then he had to set up. Our "special" picture is of us by our cake...something I didn't want.

There was also a time while we were waiting for him to set up that he and the dj had a little mishap. All in front of us on our day! Guests were getting restless and he insisted we take what seemed like 100 pictures of us by the cake.

All in all we were not impressed at all with his unprofessionalism. I did not rate the value for cost because I have yet to see my pictures. I would not be surprised if I saw hundreds of the same pose. I can only hope that there are at least a couple good shots.

I would only recommend Edward Fox if you know who your photographer is AND you see his/her work and are 100% in love with it! Too bad Marcia isn't a photographer! We also are kicking ourselves for not paying the extra $500 to have the guy who took our e-pics be our photographer day of.

We couldn't have been more pleased with Edwards!

Ms. Rita was our sales representative, who I met at a Bridal Show. From the moment we met her, she listend to exactly what we were looking for. I was very happy with the process before the wedding including the payment plan, the ease of everyone answering my questions, and the engagement photo session. When we received the engagement pictures back, we were thrilled! So we couldn't wait for our wedding day to see what we would get.

A week before the wedding, right on schedule, our photographer called us. His name was Steve and I was extremely impressed with the questions he asked, and he seemed like he really cared about our special day. He showed up right on time, and the rest of the day is history. I have no complaints, my groom even thought he did a great job. When we got our pictures back, they speak volumes about the wedding.

Overall, I recommend Edwards. They are a little pricy, but you get what you pay for, and we got great photos, and a gorgeous album, definately worth the money!

I really enjoyed working with Edward Fox. They are great to work with and answered many of my questions via email or phone. They were also flexible in price and willing to throw in a few extras.

Our photographer was Todd Ganek. He was quick, fast and professional, and there was very little wait time between shots. I was also able to throw in a few suggetsions and he even threw out a few ones as well!

I think that the pictures will turn out very well when we see them, the only bad thing was that I closed my eyes but he said that it would be able to be photoshopped. I would recommend this vendor as well to other brides looking for a photographer.

The photographer was very pleasant, flexible and accomodating. The day was EXTREMELY HOT, one of the hottest of the summer and he remained as professional as could be. We provided him with a list of shots we wanted to take about 5 days before the wedding via email and everything was taken care of the day of the wedding. He was about 45 min late arriving so we missed the prep shots, but not a big deal when you look at the big picture. The packages at Edward Fox are a bit pricier than others I visited, but believed their long standing reputation would surpass them. I am still working with them to get the book finished, so my services with them are not yet completed. They were about 1 week early uploading and making the photos available to view -- took them about 3 weeks to post so we were pleasantly surprised.

It was very frustrating to have to wait until two days before the wedding to speak with the photographer. We did not get any of the group shots (other than the bridal party and immediate family) that we were hoping for and we had to change the overall wedding itinerary because of the last minute photography decisions. Our photographer, Dave, was clearly experienced and nice to work with. Would have been nice to have a few more creative pictures with the bridal party...they were all in the same spot at the golf course. We are excited to see what pictures did and did not come out.

After interviewing four other photographers, we chose Edward Fox. The value of the packages and quality of images we previewed convinced us that this was the right photographer, hands down. As part of our package, we received all 940 proofs as real 4x6 pictures, as well as a DVD with the copyright release of all of our images. This on top of a gorgeous album and two parent albums! For a comparable package at our second-choice photographer, we would have paid an additional $2800.

The images Karola captured for us could not be better. We're happy with every picture she took. She was thorough, efficient, creative, and friendly. During our reception, she was inconspicuous but still captured every important moment -- and more. If given the opportunity to choose all over again, I would go with Edward Fox without a question.

I decided to go with Edward's because we had used them at my sister's wedding 5 years previous and were very happy with the results.
Of course, their prices had gone up since then, but they still offered a great variety of packages with a decent price range. I was concerned that I only met with the photographer the week before the wedding - I would've liked to have had a couple meetings beforehand.
The photographs turned out very nice. The ones of objects (our rings, my dress, shoes, flowers, decor, etc) are amazing! The photographer set up little "scenes" with different objects and created some truly terrific photos. I had mixed feelings about the posed photographs of people. Most turned out very nice, but some are not that great. There were just a few that were not good at all - he was going for a very specific moment and either the people or the camera didn't have the right timing and they did not come out as they should have, but there were really only 2 of those out of 560 or so photos.
I did create a list of photos that I wanted taken and he did his best to get them done, but we did miss some, which was disappointing - for example, there isn't one of my with my MOH and Maids all together. But, he was quite efficient when taking the photos after the ceremony and very good about working with those annoying relatives who won't stop taking pictures. I did warn him ahead of time and he was able to deflect some of the unwarranted picture-taking.
I did have a fairly small budget for photos, but I knew that, once the day was over, photos would be all that was left and so I wanted them to be good.
I did like the photographer and I like the studio - they have a great payment plan! - but I would recommend that you interview your photographer to make sure they can do all the styles you want and ask to see some of their work.
Overall, I would recommend Edward's Photography, but I would definitely encourage you to meet with your photographer more than once before the wedding and ask to see some of their work.

This company is very professional and takes high quality pictures. They will work with you on any budget and will take almost any picture you could possibly want. The photographer we had was funny and easy to get along with. When I was planning my wedding I was trying to keep the cost low as possible, however I told myself the two most important things to not skimp on (next to you dress of course) is the entertainment and your memories. These are picture you have to look at for the rest of you life, and you want them to be perfect. This company is great at providing just that!

Our photographer was David Schneider. Quite experienced, but a little to old-fashioned for us! Many guests and attendants found him to be a bit annoying. Edward Fox is an interesting company - you aren't able to talk or meet your photographer until the week of the wedding! This was not ideal as schedules changed last minute and it was nerve wrecking not to know contact information. Packages are on the pricey side but sales staff are nice and at times generous in discounts, etc. I was not happy with their marketing though - after booking them I continued to receive promotional emails about even lower wedding package rates! Furthermore, after the wedding I received a letter from their online service department with online viewing cards to hand out to guests. The letter talks about using the sign up sheet and cards at the reception - interesting that we received this a couple weeks AFTER the reception!

I was such a low-key bride..ask anyone, but certain things are expected. This is the only vendor who ticked me off. The photographer was great, but the after service stunk! I forgot the photographer's name b/c its been a while (Dave or Joe..older guy). My only request was a taller photographer b/c I am tall and did not want a million "up" shots of my face. He was perfect. I loved the selection of pictures from the before, during and after the ceremony and the reception photos. He did a great job and made my older sister jealous that I had a better photographer than she did at her wedding. He made everyone laugh and was not pushy to get a shot...he blended right in. Love, love, loved him!

The reason I rated it low was the service from the sales rep. I couldn't have been more confused and irritated with her. I forgot her name too, but it was the location in Schamburg, IL. Their system for creating the albums is retarded (to be nice). I picked out the photo and put a sticker with the size and shape of the photo on a piece of paper and marked the number of the photo I wanted it to be. They so could have had this digitalized to make it easier. When I turned it in, apparently I did it all wrong and had to sit there for 2 hours to redo it b/c they gave me no instructions on how to do it in the first place. Biggest waste of time. I got the package with the rights to the photos and the two parent albums. I got a third parent album for my grandmother.

When I went to pick up my albums, they put the wrong photos in the wrong parent albums and asked if I could help switch them to save time....ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME??!!?? Then they forgot my CD with the rights to the photos and said I would have to pay $50 for it. Uh, it was included in my package and since I already had my albums (correctly) at that time I told her I wasn't paying the remainder of the bill ($400) until I got that CD....and I got it. They were so unprofessional, they are lucky the photographer was great otherwise I would never recommend this place. The albums turned out awesome, part from my selection and layout of the photos and part from the quality of the photographer's work. The end result was great, but getting there was like pulling teeth.

For being in business for over 100 years Edwards defiantly knows what they're doing. They photographer was excellent; as many of you know trying to keep a smile on you face for a long period of time is a little difficult. Our photographer was just wonderful; he made funny noises and comments to help us keep a natural smile on everyone's face.
Edwards also has many different packages to meet any budget, and best of all a wonderful payment plan. After paying the down payment nothing else is due till your proofs come in.
The photographer was very professional, wearing a tux, very gracious of me and my guests, and when he missed a moment that would make a wonderful picture he asked me and my husband to do it again so we wouldn't miss out on a picture.
I would recommend Edwards to any bride looking at photographer.

Our wedding photographer, Mariusz at Edward Fox was fantastic and great to work with - and our photographs turned out beautifully. The reason I have left a sub-par review is not because of the photograher but because of the difficulty of working with the Edward Fox studio. On several occasions throughout the process they did not return numberous e-mails or phone calls. The colors on of our initial set of proofs (after waiting a couple months for them) were wrong so they had to be re-printed. Also, there were numerous 'additional charges' for different page layouts for our album.

Overall, the price was reasonable and we were happy with the end product however, interactions with Edward Fox were frustrating to say the least.

We payed extra to have "the best" photographer at Edward Fox, well if he is one of their best I would not suggest them to anyone. The photographer was suppose to contact me the week before the wedding, I never heard anything. I had to call the studio so they could track him down and have him call me. When I spoke to him I told him exactly what was important to me. The day of the wedding he was more then an hour late, so he got no pictures of us getting ready. He rushed through everything. There is 1 picture of me walking down the aisle with my dad and my eyes are closed, he never got one from behind. He never got a picture of us lighting the unity candle, not one of us getting in the limo or getting out at the reception, he was late getting to the reception when we went straight there from the church. He took all the group pictures in one spot, i had specifically asked him to get a picture of the entire bridal party on the deck when the sun was going down, he never did that, he never set up a portrait area, there are hardly any pictures of the groom dancing or talking with people but tons of me, the lighting was terrible for most of the pictures and lots of eyes closed. All in all, I cant say anything posivitve.

We haven't received our pictures yet...but on the day of our wedding, the photographer was wonderful. He took all of his pictures, but he also did what we asked him to do. At the reception, I didn't even notice he was there. He did a wonderful job of taking pictures without being too invasive. They also offer a payment plan where we don't give them all of the money until we have our pictures in hand...which was a very big draw for me. Overall, I was VERY happy and I can't wait to see my pictures!

Ben Newton at Edward Fox was the perfect photographer for our wedding. My husband and I are a young couple (23) and everyone in our party, and most of the wedding guests, are either in college or recently graduated. When we went to Edward Fox we told them we needed someone who had tons of energy and could get a bunch of 20-somethings to focus long enough to get a great picture. They told us about Ben, saying that he was their best photographer, that everyone loves him, and that he gets rave reviews. We looked at his portfolio (very impressive) and sat down with him for about 30 minutes. He is not only adorable and very energetic, but he really knows his stuff when it comes to photography. We booked him immediately and then set up a time to get our engagement portraits with him. He is so much fun!!! After getting our engagement photos, we could not wait for our party to meet him. I knew everyone would love him, but I was not prepared for how much they loved him. He was like the hero of our wedding. He made us laugh all day, kept everything interesting, took creative and innovative shots, he knew where in the city was best to take pictures at what times, and even was able to manage crowds of people that were staring at us and getting in the way. Everyone at the wedding wanted pictures with him! I can't say enough about Ben. He's really great and made our wedding wonderful. He was everyone's favorite thing about the day. His photography is astounding (he makes you look so good!) and his personality is awesome. If you meet him, you'll book him and if you book him, you'll be so glad you did!

Our photographer showed up on time and was professional. The only complaint I have is that he didn't take more pics at the church and our first kiss. He captured every moment,but I did not see a large variety of photos for these two events. THe price is high, but the quality makes up for it. Do not expect anything for free from this company and always bring your paperwork! They had us down for the incorrect package when we finalized our album, and it was a downgraded package. I had to go home and fax them our paperwork. I did not feel I should have had to support our contract, they should have retrieved our original contract from the main office and ensured it was entered into the computer properly...b/c computers never lie..yeah right.

My Photographer was sooooo much fun. He really captured what we wanted. The girls were running behind with our hair appointment. I called him to see if he could come a half hour later since he was due at my house in 15 minutes and he did with no problems. He even adjusted the rest of the time accordingly.

WE HAD TO PAY FOR A MEETING WITH OUR PHOTOGRAPHER WHICH MY HUSBAND WENT INSANE OVER SINCE THE PRICE OF THE PACKAGE WAS ALREADY EXPENSIVE, BUT WE FIGURED WE WERE GOING TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME WITH THIS PERSON AND WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE LIKE HIM -

THE COMPLAINT THAT I HAVE IS THAT WE WERE SPECIFIC ABOUT CERTAIN PICTURES WE WANTED TAKEN AND CERTAIN PICTURES WE WANTED VERY FEW OF - THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN - MY UNCLE GAVE ME AWAY AT MY WEDDING AND THERE WERE TWO PICTURES TAKEN OF HIM AND MY NOW HUSBAND, NEITHER ONE OF THEM TURNED OUT, THEIR EYES WERE CLOSED IN BOTH - IN THESE DAYS OF DIGITAL YOU'D THINK THEY'D LOOK TO MAKE SURE THE PICTURES TURNED OUT AND TAKE MORE - BUT THE PEOPLE WE ONLY WANTED A FEW OF THERE WERE TONS OF THEM. I CAN'T GO BACK AN RECREATE THAT MOMENT AGAIN - SO I'M JUST WITHOUT. THERE WERE VERY FEW PICTURES TAKEN AT THE CEREMONY AS WELL AND NO GOOD SHOT AT ALL OF ME WALKING DOWN THE ISLE - PLUS WE TOLD HIM THAT IT WAS OK TO STAND BEHIND OUR MINISTER SO WE COULD HAVE PICTURES TAKES OF US FROM IN FRONT AND INSTEAD HE DID THEM FROM BEHIND SO YOU PRETTY MUCH HAVE PICTURES OF THE BACKS OF US AND NOTHING ELSE. VERY DISAPPOINTING BECAUSE THOSE ARE MEMORIES THAT I'LL NEVER HAVE PICTURES OF NOW. MY MOTHER WAS EVEN MORE DISAPPOINTED.

I JUST HOPE ONCE I GET MY PICTURES BACK THEY TURN OUT DESCENT.

I have had nothing but problems with Edward Fox. They were having some problems in the Houston market, and switched people multiple times I am on my third contact with the company and was not contacted once to be made aware of the change. I only found out by trying to contact the company or the person I was in contact with. Our engagement and my bridal session went well and we liked those pictures. I was so excited to find out that my wedding pictures were posted online, once I got home and started looking at them I was in tears, all of my ceremony pictures have an orange background and the brick in the church I had the ceremony is a light brown color. We believe is was a combination of the sky lights over the alter and a flash. My recepiton pictures turned out better but I was still disapointed in some of them. The bridal party entrance they only got one picture of each couple and they are all at different distances from the camera, the same with them coming down the isle. My parents spent a lot of money on what I feel are bad and ok pictures out of 800 something pictures we loved 4 of them.

I met with this company more than 6 months before my wedding. They had me look through albums to match me with a photographer that would reflect my style. I was supposedly matched with someone who was going to be a photojournalistic approach rather than having us be in posed pictures all night. Most of the wedding photography was supposed to occur during the 3 hours prior to the ceremony so that we could enjoy our reception.
The photographer that we were paired with did not contact us until the Monday before our Saturday wedding. He asked us if we needed any specialty pictures like sports teams or sorority, but I said that I wanted was our families and close friends included, he did not ask me who. He called us on his time, rather than setting up a meeting where I could be prepared to discuss what I wanted. I had worked over 12 hours that day and it was late at night and I was stressed as it was almost the wedding day and I had a lot other last minute things to do
He stood around for the first hour waiting for pictures for me, even though I was preoccupied with a situation that had arisen suddenly and he could have been photographing the location, bridesmaids, groomsmen, etc.
He posed us for every single picture, their were no candids. He did not photograph any of my aunts and uncles, or my sister in law. I had to ask him to include the ushers and the ring bearer in the group pictures. He took me and my husband away after dinner and spent over an hour posing us around the restaurant and posing us against a blue background like at prom. These pictures were absolutely awful, of everybody. Instead of these he could have been walking around and taking pictures during the dance and of the guests, Very few , if any, guest pictures, other than the blue background.
We missed all of the special beginning dances, like the longest married couple dance (which was my aunt and uncle from out of state, no pictures of them).
Definitely not what I had requested.

Overall I was very satisfied with Edward Fox. I felt several times that during the engagement portrait process & the wedding portraits themselves that I was not completely heard when it came to creativity. I wanted very natural looking photos and an "offbeat" style, but what I got was the most traditional thing possible.

Oh well - they are old and traditional and they're not going to change just because you ask them.

Everyone is very nice and if you're LOOKING for traditional, you can't go wrong w/Edward Fox

While this is a well known company and they have been doing this for awhile, we had a bad photographer. Chris Martinez was extremely slow at taking pictures and took too many. I never thought I'd have too many pictures of my wedding day, but I spent well over 1/2 my wedding day infront of his camera. When we got our pictures back he missed some key pictures like taking a picture of my family with my new husband. I would recommend spending some more money to upgrade your photographer to a more saught after photographer in the company.

The nice part of booking with Edward Fox is that you are guaranteed to have a photographer at your wedding. They have many back up photographers ready to show up if something comes up with your original photographer.
Unfortunately, you don't actually get to pick your own photographer. The company assigns one to you based on your tastes. They never actually told me who was assigned to me and I was a little disappointed with the photographer we did receive. He knew how to work his camera well enough, but he lacked the ability to direct people enough to make sure we had enough fun shots with our friends in addition to all the standard formal group portraits.

At first it looks like it is wonderful, they are super nice and give you deals.
When it came the day of the wedding, we got a bad photographer. First he smelled (sorry, but we could not stand next to him) our guest were asking us why he was so bossy and rude!!!
He did not get a picture of my husband and I walking down the isle after the ceremony (which in my opinion is one of the most important picture of the day) through the recpetion I had to go find him so he would take the pictures that I wnated and every time I looked around he would walk away and take pictures that we wanted but that for me were not really important.
Then, when I went to get my proofs, they had misplaced ALL the picture of me and muy husband, we only had 1 picture of the us together, and when I call to ask for the other they were like: Are you sure the photographer took those pictures?? (like I was making up the fact that the were missing)
And then when we when to get the picture that sale person wasn't half as nice as the first person that we talk to before the wedding.
We had a wonderful day, and I can say that the thig that went wrong that day were the photographer!!!!

I would recommend a package they offer to get a high-def CD with all of your pictures. Then you have the liberty to print and reprint your own pictures whenever you want them.

We had high hopes for this photographer since they are well known and have been in business for a long time. We were quite disappointed. The pictures do not capture our personalities and they took virtually no creative pictures. I do not even have pictures of my entire immediate family together. On a hectic day like that, the photographer really needs to be on the ball. The bride should not have to remember every single little picture that needs to be taken. Also, it is now almost May and we got married last July. We still have no pictures because they messed up the tints on the flowers. Enough said.

It cost way too much and every step of the way we have problems...pictures sent to family were not centered right and then they had to change our album on us over the phone because our pictures we wanted were badly taken and they realized they cant scrunch them to work out so we have to just have them change it with nothing being saw. It has been a bigger burden even 6 months after the wedding.

I have some positive comments and negative comments about this vendor:
Positive:
Our wedding site was outside of their "free" zone, but they waived the travel fee
The pictures turned out gorgeous and the albums are beautiful (even though we don't have our album yet).
The website was nice for out of town guests to browse and order from.

Negative:
The photographer was mean to my aunt who was trying to get some pictures to take to my grandma who is in a nursing home.
The photographer made my flower girl cry.
He didn't get any pictures of just my mom and I.
The proofs came back about a month later than they told us they would.
Our album time frame was advertised as 6-8 weeks, but when we put in our order we were told it would take 14-16 weeks (we still don't have it or the regular pictures we ordered).
The website was confusing and most guests ordered something they didn't want.

The service I received from Edward Fox was poor. I felt like I was just a number to them. I was not allowed to meet my photographer before the wedding date. I only spoke to her briefly the day before the wedding. For the price, this should have been a very personal, customized relationship. It was not!
When I went to order my photos, they interrogated my husband and me on why we didn't order more - it was very uncomfortable. I didn't want to be rude and tell them the pictures were no better than what my family took on their own, but that was the truth.
I do not recommend this photographer.

I wanted photo journalism style. Photographer was polite and courtious. Somehow they lost 1/3 of our photos, didn't get any photos of our vows, and most photos in the church were blurry and looked like we shot them ourselves. They gave us a huge credit for the mistake. We then paid another $400 to buy the rights to our photos on a CD, a year later we went to print more photos and the CD doesn't work and I have gotten no response as to a replacement for it.

Carol Woods was our photographer (she also has her own photography business on the side). She was incompetant, slow, rude and unprofessional in talking to us, our bridal party and guests. She was not creative in setting up/ taking pictures. She did not get all table shots with all guests. She was extremely slow in taking each picture. She would not respond well or take direction from couple. She did not tell people they were not visible in shot or hair/dress were messy, body was not posed properly. The shots she took were basically aweful...nothing you would see in a bridal magazine or even on their wall as a sample. I do have to say that Brend Nicolin - who works in the sales office at the Schaumburg location was very much the opposite - very polite, professional, helpful, accommodating and understanding.

He took all of the pre-ceremony pictures of the guys, and they are mostly horrible. He walked up onto the altar during the ceremony - made our priest angry. Not good. Going through the proofs, it was very evident which pictures he had taken. Advice: make sure you see a portfolio for BOTH photographers assigned for your wedding.

The photography studio themselves were highly professional, however, the photographer we had was less than so. We had gone over the types of photos we wanted, and of whom. Halfway through our reception, he came up to our head table to ask us what we wanted next, when he hadn't gotten through all the photos we already requested. That was not the part that made me mark him as less than professional. In between speeches at our reception, he came up and asked me what table he was at, and was visibly upset that I couldn't remember the number and asked him to check his card. Having 30 tables at the reception, how am I supposed to remember if he was at 24 or 26.

I was very disappointed with Edward Fox. They have been around forever and had taken pictures of my mother and my grandmother. I went with them because of family's recommendation and because of their experience. I am not sure if it was just the photographer I had, but he was late and missed all of the pre wedding photos, I said I wanted photo journalism- instead they were all posed pictures. I wore my grandmothers veil- there isn't one good picture of it. There are no pictures of our first kiss at the alter. There are no good pictures of us dancing or cutting the cake. People told me after the wedding that the photogrpaher was downstairs at the bar half the night drinking and smoking cigarettes. I was completely devastated when I saw them. They were nice enough to give me all the proofs for free, but it doesn't replace the fact that I have no decent pcitures of my wedding day.

If you're looking for a photography vendor for your wedding and would like one who:
- DOESN'T COMMIT to their word and basically lie;
- will LOSE your wonderful wedding memories and album;
- will easily take your money but not your calls...
then you've found the place in Edward Fox Photography.

Bottom line, Edward Fox will do a superb job in making you miserable and ruining your wonderful memories of the biggest day of your life.

I went with Edward Fox for my wedding pix and to this day am very disappointed with my overall experience. Edward Fox was recommended to me through my wedding venue. Photos examples at my venue and at both the Chicago and Lombard locations looked great.

First off, if we wanted our engagement sitting (that came with our pkg) we could only get a photo taken on a Saturday if we went to the downtown Chicago location.

We weren’t able to meet our photographer until the day of the wedding, though he phoned me a couple of days beforehand. I told my contact that the style of photos that I wanted on my wedding day – photojournalistic. I provided examples and was insured that there wouldn’t be an issue capturing what I was looking for, for my special day. I was reassured that my wishes would be met. I spoke to my photographer on the phone a few days before the wedding and he wasn’t interested in a list of family photos that I wanted or in seeing examples of photos that I had saved. (He was concerned if he was going to “eat” at my reception tough.)

During the experience of having our photos taken, our photographer reeked of smoke and part of his camera (something with the flash) kept falling off multiple times leaving a very unprofessional image to both my family and my guests.

The quality of my photos and poses in my photos stunk! Better photos of my day were captured by friends and family who are ALL amateur photographers. There isn’t a nice picture of my groom and I, of the cake cutting, or of group family photos. Even the photos of capturing the wedding party walking up and down the aisle were a joke. He also attempted candid photos, however when 2/3 of ones face is missing, there isn’t much to see. There is not one photo of my husband and I that I would like framed on a wall or table in my home. Edward Fox did offer a “free sitting” to make up for my disappointment, but really, that alternate photo is not of me on my wedding day, not to mention my dress is at the cleaners and I would have to pay for hair and makeup again to capture my day.

There is constant communication breakdown between the Chicago QH location, the Lombard location and then the Schaumburg location. (WE picked up our proofs at the Schaumburg location – our other option was again, downtown.)

This operation is a joke. All brides beware! Don’t use Edward Fox for your special day.

P.S. Becuase we have out of town relatives who still needed to reivew our proofs online in order to order photos, we were hit with a $20 fee to keep our photos posted for a whole 30 more days.

P.S.S. I had to contact the studio to even get my photos posted online in the firstplace. (It took nearly 8 weeks.) I don't think that they were going to contact me. I also had to pay them more $$ in order to get the photos to go live on the site.

We decided to go with Edward fox due to their background in Chicago. It was a complete disappointment and I really suggest to find someone else. They were they show you beautiful pictures and say that you can pick a photographer, they also said you get to sit with your photographer before the wedding and discuss what you want for your wedding. All these things never happened. The photographer called me 1 day before the wedding and rushed through the phone call. on the day of the event, he arrived on time, but was under dress. I kept looking for the photographer during the whole wedding. He has also drinking at the bar with the video guy. He was only taking 1 or 2 shots of everything, ask to take more but he didn't. So we saw our friends pictures and couldn't wait to see the photographers. When we finally got them it was a huge disappointment. Most of the pictures were out of focus or blurry! We had our wedding at navy pier, he cut off the background of the skyline! and the ferries wheel which we repeatedly asked to be included in all pictures. As we expected there were only 2 shots of everything, most of them unusable since either my eyes or my husbands were closed :/ you would think that since they say you get unlimited pictures he would have taken more, but for 9 hrs he only took 800 pictures. we also went around the city for pictures for which we rented a trolley and he kept taking portrait pictures and forgot to include the background! When confronted the manager, he said pictures were beautiful and not blurry but soft! refused to reimbursed our money or give us a solution. He offered to print as many pictures as we wanted, but what is the point when you cant even find one picture that works. So as we see it we have no wedding pictures. FIND SOMEONE ELSE!

The photographer was amazing but the company it self was not great. They took forever to get our photos back to us. 7 months later and we still haven't received our albums.

This review is specifically about Jenny Fontaine more than the studio. I found the studio difficult to deal with, but knowing how amazing, wonderful, professional, fun and talented Jenny Fontaine is I would always always always hire her. She was simply fantastic. Jenny personally fit with mine very well. My groom and I have big families and big bridal parties and not a lot of time for photos (1 hour between ceremony and reception) and she was able to get photos of everyone we wanted at church (in 20 minutes) and then at 2 locations for the bridal party. Jenny fit in wonderfully and it was really great to have her by my side for 10 hours. Not sure how many people I can say that about!

I really highly recommend Jenny and would hire her for other important events in my life!

I signed up with this facillity when they had an office in Michigan then they closed it before my wedding. Now that my wedding is over and they have all my money - and no longer have in office in MI they seem to not care! They realize since I live in MI I cant walk in their office and complain and can only call and email. Dont waste your time on this place - my wedding pictures friends took were better then the professional ones!

We had Jenny Fountaine [from Edward Fox Photography] as our photographer in our wedding. Jen was the BEST!!! She easily understands the style we wanted and was extremely nice. While we were waiting for the limo to pick us up and take us to church, Jen was like another bridesmaid making sure I had everything I needed. We highly recommend Jen to anyone looking for a photographer for their wedding or for anything. Jen is EXCELLENT!!!!! If you choose Edward Fox Photography, ask to have Jen as your photographer!!!

My pictures make me cry! All that money spent with maybe 4 good shots!? I have contacted the company several times and I get "I can't do anything about it" or "contact this person" and no response. Still 6 months later and we don't have our album which is small (not like it should take long). Please don't make the same mistake we did.

Overall pleased with the photos. Still working on our album. For 10 hours of photos, only about 700 pictures taken, some important moments do not have as many photos as I would have liked. Free engagement portrait session was nice, and photos turned our great. Easy to schedule appointments, very flexible payment plan.

Do not give them your money! Once they have it they dont treat you with respect or answer your questions. The receptionists are so rude and very good at making you feel small! They even said they mailed my pictures but I never got them!

Brides beware. -This is a review of the business people behind this company, not the photographers, because our wedding photographer was great. The people running, or lack there of is the issue...
My husband and I got married on 9/29/12. It is now almost the end of June 2013 and we still do not have the wedding album that we paid an exorbitant amount of money for. Good thing we didn't shell out several hundred more on the parent’s album. The issue started when Edward Fox Photography moved out of Michigan to only being based out of Chicago. Since that time (which was shortly before our wedding) it has been horrible. First I could not get in touch with the company to figure out what was going on as far as our wedding was concerned. Then it took so long to get our pictures from the wedding (almost a month). The next issue was with the album. We were told it would take 12 weeks to be completed. Now we are at least 16 weeks out and they are just finishing up. Lastly, after settling everything financially with them in October, we are being informed that we still owe money. How is that possible? Horrible. I would never recommend this company to anyone due to their lack of business ethics.

We just received the link to my daughter's wedding photos within the last few days from Edward Fox Photography. I must say, we are incredibly disappointed with the overall quality of the photos. The single most glaring problem is that our photographer, Josh Costes, did not take a single portrait photo of the bride and groom in front of the altar by themselves. No closeup, no full length, NOTHING worthy of framing as the signature photo of the bride and groom's day. EVERY formal photo of the Bride and Groom in the church has someone else from the wedding party in the photo. True, we wanted these photos. But Wedding Photography 101 should make it clear to every wedding photographer that a beautiful portrait of the bride and groom alone in the ceremony venue is necessary and required. Yes, we had a list of must-take photos that included this photo request on the list. Yes, we had a family member working with the photographer to coordinate this list and make sure that all bases were covered. But, you guessed it. Josh dismissed this family member, stating he'd seen the list and knew what he was doing. Apparently not. Now the opportunity is lost. What a disappointing end to a most magical day.

I was and still am extremely dissapointed with Edward fox. It has been over a year and I still do not have my album in my hands. They did not contact us until the afternoon before our wedding. The it has been 8 months since we put our final payment and picked out our album. They did not touch any of our pictures up. We have had things have to be redone. They tell us a week about contact and we have to contact them2 weeks later. It has been a hassle and they have been not willing to help or try to make amends. If you want quick picture turnover and people willing to please you DO NOT go with them.

Edward Fox Photography has been around for decades therefore, they're considered one of the BIG photography studios in Chicago/ Chicagoland area. With that being said, they have already earned their reputation in the photography world and their photographers are just remarkable.

The price is also very reasonable however, since your wedding day is just once in a lifetime~ I would still pay an extra $200 upgrade fee for their non-novice photographers (the experts): Todd Ganek, David Loeb, etc.

They really have an eye for details and their pictures are not just your standard portraits - they really do a phenomenal job catching the "photojournalistic shots" of your BIG day =) Their prints are kindda pricey though.. $7 for a 4x6 print... but you can just print from the CD they'll provide afterwards so no big deal. Overall, highly satisfied with their work! :)

I had 2 photographers from the Wauwatosa, WI location and they were wonderful! Laura, who was our "consultant", was an excellent business associate in that she knew names of previous clients that had been married for years when we mentioned their name, she recognized me 2 years after my wedding at a wedding show and asked how my husband was(by name), and the pictures turned out beautiful and we received them in a timely manner!
