Welcome to Extravaganza Unique Wedding Photography...

About my work: I get to take pictures of people in love. I create beautiful, stylish and unobtrusive images. I specialize in documentary wedding photography, which basically means I let people relax and be themselves. I don’t stop what they’re doing, I don’t interrupt or get them to pose for the camera. And that means you get honest, natural and emotional photographs. I know how to create a unique record that captures all the emotion, spirit and soul of your wedding. By combining natural documentary images with stunning and creative portraits you get a great mix of imagery which tells the full story of your wedding day. I offer all day coverage and all my couples receive their full resolution digital files. I photograph weddings throughout the U.S. and beyond – being based in Chicago means I frequently work and go anywhere, included lots of other lovely places. I love to travel though, so wherever you’re getting married then please take a look at my portfolio to see some of my destination wedding photography, and if you like what you see then please get in touch – I would love to chat to you about your plans.

My ideas are capturing the moments, and the essence of the person in those moments. My work redefines artistic/celebrity/event/wedding photography, and has been described as Fine Art by most notable celebrity clients in Chicago and US, including The National Restaurant Association, Mayor Richard Daley, the Pentagon, Air Force, Marines, World’s finest Winemakers, Le Mans Racing, Nahrep, Hinsdale Juniors Women’s Club, Ecolab, Aston Martin, Porsche, Ferrari, Chicago Blackhawks, Gary Sinise, Jesse White and the big invitation by L. Bacin, and Hollywood directors Steven Spielberg & Michael Bay to be part of the Transformers 3 and 4 movie, the only authorized unofficial photographer in the USA.

Recently nominated “One of the top photographer’s in the US” by US Military in 2011. Read less

I had the most valuable and amazing wedding pictures by Marcello Rodarte. He was on time and very professional. My guests loved him because he was so friendly and patient. Our venue was in Northbrook -IL and after the party he took us to Chicago downtown for more sessions as we requested it before. Even that day was very cold and drizzling he went above and beyond of his work with and also gave us extra time and great locations.

Marcello is a truly fantastic photographer, and captured my wedding memories as if they were a fairytale. He is an absolute pleasure to work with, incorporating our special requests with his artistic vision, expertise and creativity behind the lens. We were blessed to have such a talented photographer spend the entire day focused on every detail so we could remember and share our wedding for years to come. This is a day that, as every bride knows, happens so fast, you'll be grateful to find the finest details captured forever.

Marcello captured our ceremony discretely with artful results, spent as much time as we needed for family photos and private first-look, incorporated a mini-shoot with my classic car, actively shot all dancing and toasts at our reception, and elegantly presented our images on a beautiful canvas, digital media and enlarged prints.

Our romantic, perfect day will always be remembered through our wedding photos, and we are so thankful to have Marcello as our photographer! Cannot sing enough praises, we highly recommend, you will not be disappointed!

Marcello is an amazing photographer! He is just so talented! True artist! I couldn't even imagine that our wedding pictures can look that beautiful! We were blown away when we received our pictures!!!! Outstanding! Can't not ask for anything more.
Overall experience was so pleasant and easy. He is a true professional.
I can not even put in words how lucky we were to have Marcello as our photographer. Now we have his art (and this is art, not just pictures) for our growing family for years to enjoy!
Thank you!

Marcello is truly worthy of ten stars in every category! I knew from the moment I met him at a private event in Burr Ridge that he would be the one to shoot my wedding some day. We held onto our friendship and contact information over the years and I finally had the pleasure of bringing him to Minnesota to be a part of our big day in June 2013. Everyone in our families absolutely adored his personality, his professionalism and the photos. We will treasure his photos for the rest of our lives and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to capture the raw beauty of your big day. The album and deliverables were incredible! Others who've seen our photos often comment that they are magazine worthy, and we couldn't agree more! Marcello is a consummate professional and a joy to know and work with.

Marcello did a fantastic job photographing my daughter's wedding. He went the extra mile to be sure we had the important photos we wanted and then more. The quality of his photos is amazing. I wouldn't have anyone else photograph for me.

For his quality, this guy is worth every penny. The minimum you'll pay for him is $2200, but he is fantastic. You won't find a better photographer. That $2200 includes him being with you from the beginning of preparation until the last second of the ceremony, capturing friends, family, etc in as many pictures it takes (no limit). In the end at this minimal price you come out with a photo album that will make jaws drop to the floor, a disc with all the pictures on it that he took for you to do with as you like. He is an all-inclusive guy. The higher-priced packages are simply the ones that include, in addition to everything else, websites.
