Gleam Photography offers a very personal approach to photographing your wedding, just as each wedding is unique and different in its own right. My goal with each wedding is to create images that reflect both your style and personality. I will make sure to capture every little detail from the unique stitching on your dress to candid moments that happen while you are exchanging vows.

My style can be described as photojournalistic, modern, and romantic, since I love to capture the beauty in the unintended moments, as well the love you feel for each other on this day. I would be honored to be a part of your wedding day and to provide you with amazing memories that you can share with your children and grandchildren. :)

Please enjoy a sampling from my portfolio below and make sure to follow me on Facebook and Blog for most current updates. If you like what you see here, feel free to send me an email with your wedding date and any questions that you may have!

Gleam Photography was wonderful to work with for our day after photo shoot (aka -trash the dress….even though we didn’t want to get that dirty).

All of Olga's shots turned out amazing, she truly made Adam and I ‘gleam’. She has an eye for great pictures and lighting and I love the effects she made for some of the pictures, different coloring (black/white, sepia,etc.). Also, I love the different types of angles she were able to capture with us and the Chicago skyline in the background.

She is available and responsive via email and on the phone, and she completely read my mind about what I was hoping the pictures would turn out to be, and exceeded both of our expectations.

Just truly amazing talent and a great person to work with!

Thank you for helping to make our wedding weekend a memorable and fun weekend.

I wish you much success!

Talented, creative, intelligent and professional. Olga has sensitivity and style. I am very impressed by her unique vision of reality. Beautiful, breathtaking images, memories saved by the flash of camera. Olga is very patient, delicate and responsible. She is organized and has an ability to work in inadequate situations. I would definitely use her service in future.

Hy husband and I used Gleam Photography for our Save-the-Date cards, and we can't say enough great things about our experience! Not only did the pictures come out beautiful, but our overall experience was so great! Olga (our photographer) was so professional, creative, and understanding of our idea and what we wanted our pictures to look like! She was so easy to work with and really understood us as a couple and the image we wanted to express to our future wedding guests. Our wedding was on 9/6/09, and many of our friends and family still have the save-the-date on their refrigerators, and we still hear compliments on how creative and lovely they are! I know we will use Gleam Photography in the future! Thank you Gleam Photography!!!!!!!

My husband and I had a maternity/family photo shoot with Gleam Photography a few months ago. The experience was very pleasant, memorable and truly amazing. The artist suggested creative ideas for various shots and worked with our personalities to capture the special moments that are very much "us". While part of the photoshoot consisted of various poses, what we really loved were the candid shots that the artist captured during this session.
We had our baby since and it's really great to look back at the maternity photos and enjoy them.
Overall feedback: great experience, great photographer and great photos!!! Thank you Gleam, we'll be enjoying our photos for years to come!

My husband and I hired Olga from Gleam Photography to do our maternity photo shoot. She came to our house to take the photos which made it really comfortable for us. We talked before the photo shoot and she made recommendations of outfits and when we were taking the pictures she had different props and ideas which were great! The pictures turned out amazing! She really involved my husband which meant a lot to us. Great shots, angles and poses.
We will definitely be hiring her again! Next is a family photo shoot!
