You have planned this day for months. Everything is perfect: the flowers, the reception hall, the cake, the DJ, the dress. The day rushes by in a whirlwind of laughter, tears, dancing, toasts, and of course, a kiss or two. It is a day both of you will never forget. But at the end of it all, after the guests depart, the flowers wilt, and the dress is packed away, only a few things remain: your love for each other, and the moments captured by your photographer.

Each wedding is a story, the beginning of a couple's journey together. I feel it is an honor to be allowed to witness such a personal and important moment in their lives. This is what drives me to visually capture their day with creativity and thoughtfulness.

Photography is my passion and my life. Developed over years of experience, I employ a contemporary, editorial approach, combining wedding photojournalism with creative portraiture to give my couples a complete visual document of their wedding day. I enjoy collaborating with my clients, but at the same time do my best to stay in the background, allowing you and your guests to simply have fun!

I realize you have many choices when it comes to your wedding photographer, and I appreciate your time in reviewing my work. Please feel free to contact me via phone or email if you have questions, or would like to set an appointment for a consultation. I wish you the best in your wedding planning, and look forward to hearing from you soon! Read less

We are so glad that we came across Jason’s work and that he was available to work with us because his photographs perfectly capture our memories of the day.

Our wedding was a short ceremony at the Chicago Cultural Center followed by brunch at a restaurant. We only decided in the last few weeks to hire a photographer. We were looking for a photographer with a documentary style, and we were very impressed with Jason’s portfolio. Luckily for us Jason was available and was very accommodating and flexible while we were making plans for our ceremony. He was professional, easy to work with, and even arrived at our wedding before we did. He is a friendly guy and fit in with our friends at the reception.

We were clueless and had no idea of what we wanted for photography. We basically only told Jason we wanted pictures of us in Chicago. He was able to take this limited instruction and gave us a wide variety of portraits that really captured the city and our personalities. Jason had a great and creative eye for posing us, and he was able to do very interesting things with the lighting for some really beautiful shots.

It was obvious from his work that he has a background in photojournalism because he was able to capture some really candid moments, and it seemed like he must have been everywhere at once. Our ceremony only lasted about five minutes, but he still got lots of great shots that captured all of the smiles, tears, and emotions of the day. He also had our photos edited and ready earlier than we expected. We received many compliments from our friends, and they appreciated how easy it was to view the online albums.

Jason’s photos beautifully tell the story of our day. He is a real joy to work with and makes you feel very comfortable. He was an instrumental part of making our day flow really smoothly, which is more than you can ask for on such a hectic day. We cannot recommend Jason enough, and we are thrilled with our photos.

Two words describe my experience with Jason at J. Brown Photography, "Absolutely Phenomenal!!" (note: I am an avid Photographer myself) Right from our first meeting with my Fiance', parents and myself he impressed me with his professionalism and organization. He had a tablet taking notes and making suggestions for the wedding. Next at our engagement session downtown, he impressed me again with his outstanding creativity, technical skill. My wife is very shy and does not always feel comfortable with being in the spotlight, but Jason and his assistant put her and myself at ease and made a cold dreary fall day a lot of fun, and the pictures came back looking like an idyllic autumn setting in the city, my family could not stop talking about the colors. Finally on our wedding day he was there early with his assistant, and associate photographer to capture my wife and myself getting ready and he had a great plan and set up for the first look moment and bridal party pix....he made a wall by a dumpster and a lobby look amazing and cool. He was great and patient with my family getting all the portrait shots with all the combinations we wanted and made really interesting use of the features of the room to make some cool shots. The rest of the day was so great, he was never in the way, caught amazing and memorable moments, didn't overuse the flash and stayed til the very end of the night. After the wedding he has worked so hard to get us our pictures in timely manner, he even managed to rush them for us so my Father could see them before he passed away 3 weeks later, and is still helping us to put together our album at our own pace. All of my family and friends still talk about him and anybody would be lucky to have him for their events.

Jason is a very talented photographer and a great guy to work with. He takes a lot of care to make sure you get all the pictures you want and adds his own (excellent) ideas to capture the wedding from a very experienced perspective. And Jason understands that every wedding has its own unique character and he makes that come through clearly in the pictures.

The Photos that Jason Brown captured were perfect! Choosing a photographer was one of our hardest decisions till I met with Jason, I knew immediately with talking to him and looking through his portfolio books that he would be amazing. He has such a creative eye for photography, it is a special talent. Jason and his crew captured the moments of emotion of joy, laughter, and love with such a beautiful journalistic eye that looking back through them brings back all the emotions of those moments in time of the crazy amazing fairy tail day that seemed to go by so quickly but now with these photos we can relive those moments with just a glance. Jason was great to work with he was flexible with scheduling and even made sure that he could still accommodate us when we had to move up our wedding date. His professionalism and creativity puts you at ease with confidence that he is capturing the moments in an amazing way. We can't stop looking through our wedding photos, it is so hard to choose what photos we want to print since there are SO MANY AMAZING PHOTOS! J.BrownPhotography was worth every penny and more! Thank you Jason and crew for such and amazing job capturing our wedding!

Working with Jason was a blast! Jason creates the kind of atmosphere that makes being photographed for hours easy. Our engagement and wedding photographs were stunning. He was flexible and worked with us when we could not pick a single location for our engagement photos and captured moments with friends and family that we will forever have in photos. We loved working with Jason and he does wonderful work. If you are not convinced, I encourage you to meet him yourself.

Jason is nothing short of AMAZING!! His work and moments that he is able to capture are truly priceless. When looking for a photographer, everyone tells you the most important thing find a photographer who truly captured the emotion of joy, laughter, and love. That is exactly what we got from Jason's beautiful pictures! We hired Jason for our engagement picture, the rehearsal dinner and the wedding! I could not be more pleased with how everything turned out, the moments that you anticipate to have captured on camera plus a lot of uncandid shots of everyone and everything. Jason is a pleasure to work with he is easy to communicate with, schedule with, and comfortable to be around so the photo shoots are not forced or posed, his talent comes so freely and it translates to all the amazing pictures he takes. He is also such a genuine person who absolutely adores his job and its more than evident from the pictures he take

Jason is absolutely amazing. The pictures from our engagement session are gorgeous and made for a really cool guestbook. He was professional from start to finish and we felt that we not only had a great photographer at our wedding but also a friend. He was always open to ideas, creative with his surroundings and never intrusive. Jason is top notch and we are so thrilled we had the chance to work with him. We can only imagine what our wedding pictures will look like, but like our engagement photos, we know they will be incredible. He helped make our day one we will never forget and we are so grateful and so glad he was a part of it.

I'm very pleased with the entire experience in working with J. Brown Photography!! Our engagement session was done in Chicago's Financial District and also Milton Olive Park (north of Navy Pier) and it was actually pretty fun and relaxed.

All I can say is that Jason made us look pretty fabulous! :-) I can't wait to use some of the photos for my "Save the Dates" and wedding website. Book with J. Brown Photography, you won't regret it!
