Modern photojournalism & timeless artistic portraiture for distinctive & discerning clientele captured in the greatest destinations worldwide

Hello. I'm Jason Kaczorowski and I just have one question for you... Are you ready to rock?

I'm the middle son - what my parents call the "creative one ".

In high school I began talking my way backstage at clubs and concerts to interview and photograph my favorite bands for a fanzine that I distributed at local record stores and coffee shops. While my friends were sitting in balconies or the lawn section at shows I was in the front row snapping pictures and hanging out at aftershow parties.

When I met my wife in 1998 we bonded over our favorite live music and spent nearly 10 years traveling the world together. During our wedding planning process, as we interviewed photographers to capture our wedding photos, I couldn't understand why photography studios and independent wedding photographers alike were so expensive, so slow and so unaccommodating. It was at that moment in 2005 that I decided to apply my BFA in Photography to becoming a full time wedding photographer and rockin' the wedding world. In 2007 I opened my own photography studio in Chicago where I have been trusted by hundreds of brides and grooms around the world to capture their wedding.

If you sense you are someone who sees things a bit differently, prides yourself in being unique and are marrying someone who has that particular, one-of-a-kind quality, shouldn't your photography mirror your personality & merit that distinct taste?

I invite you to visit my website to discover more about me and schedule an appointment to meet with me at my studio and allow me to discover more about you and your wedding.

I can't say enough great things about Jason! With my memory problem, photography was one of the areas we were most concerned about. I was nervous and didn't feel right about a lot of the photographers we were meeting - until we met Jason. He made me feel so at ease. We talked for hours about why he loves photography and how he got into it. By the time our wedding rolled around, we had talked to Jason several times and met his wife. I felt like he was part of the family and we all were enjoying the big day. His photography is outstanding and he makes you feel so comfortable when he's taking pictures. I remember seeing his photos and thinking they were amazing, but not thinking ours would turn out like that because we are silly people who make faces and act goofy all the time - but he somehow made us look great, too! You will not regret hiring Jason. He wasn't just a photographer on our day, he actually made the day so much more pleasant and fun.

Jason was an absolutely amazing photographer to work with. He knows exactly what he is doing, and has photographed tons of weddings. He spent the entire day with us for our engagement shoot at a farm, and stayed all the way until sunset to capture pictures in the lighting he wanted. When he gets a picture he likes, he was gleeful like a little kid. You could tell he was excited to do what he does, and loves photographing couples. He has a very unique personality, and if you meet with him you will know if he is right for you.

If he is, know that you will be getting incredible photographs. He came to our videography engagement session for free to get to know us and the video people he would be working with. He set us up with an amazing engagement session. He documented our ceremony from some amazingly unique angles without bothering or intruding on our guests or ceremony. And he managed to capture amazing moments of the reception without even noticing that he was around.

We met with a ton of photographers before making our decision, and I am so glad we went with Jason. He was absolutely amazing.

Where to begin to sing Jason's praises: this man is committed to delivering beautiful, unique and creative photos where you can feel the emotion of the event. Jason delivered on everything we asked for (shots of the party, lots of candids and great family and friend group pics) and honestly went beyond that: we had three talented photographers and a videographer, who were all pumped to celebrate with us and capture the day (...or they were the best actors ever if they weren't really excited, haha). He was so chill, super patient and just a joy to work with. I have recommended him to several family and friends because he is just that good. He is totally who you want there on one of the most important days of your life.

Most importantly, my family and friends were simply speechless when they saw our shots. One friend said: "I was there and even I didn't see all the things he captured!" For the Chicago market, you can go nuts and spend $8-$10k on photography; Jason delivers the same quality for far less than that.

My new husband and I can't say enough about Jason and his associates. From the beginning, he was professional and responsive. He kept in touch throughout our planning process to remain updated on our vision and completely delivered when I asked for creative, avant garde wedding photos. And talk about full service - despite my encouragement to let it go, Jason gallantly retrieved a wayward bridesmaid bouquet floating down the DuPage River! He even had to get snarky with an oblivious tourist that refused to leave the location of our photos all in an effort to make our wedding day as special as possible. Of course I'm biased, but ours are the most artistic, perfect wedding photos I've ever seen. Jason Kaczorowski is worth every penny!

Jason is simply the best. We knew from the moment we met him that we wanted him to capture our big day. Boy did he not disappoint. Jason was extremely helpful throughout the entire planning process. If you have viewed his photos online you already know he is an incredible photographer. However, he is also down to earth and extremely easy to work with. We still have people tell us how incredible our photos are. Not only does Jason take incredible pictures, but he is a true artist with a passion for what he does. If you want the BEST wedding photographer look no further!

By far, the easiest and best decision we made in the preparation of our wedding was hiring Jason as our photographer.

Amazed (and a little envious) after seeing other wonderful pictures of his from many very satisfied couples we were even more impressed with his professionalism throughout the entire process. From the initial consultation, to asking us what we are really looking for, to explaining how he does what he does, we were just blown away and knew at all times we were in good hands.

Honestly, the pictures were really the ONE thing I was told could not be messed up or done half-assed as they are the only things besides the memories that would last forever. My wife was absolutely ecstatic. (phew!) .

While some photographers may be able to give you what you envision, Jason's gift is delivering products well beyond what you envision and more! We saw his creative work and we were instantly drawn to it. Frankly, we asked for a few of the normal money shots that we 'have' to get and the rest I asked him just to do what he does with complete artistic freedom- and we couldn't be happier with the results.

I highly recommend Jason Kaczorowski Photography. No doubt you will be as happy as we were.

My husband and I selected Jason Kaczorowsi to capture the moments of our wedding day and we couldn't be happier with his amazing work. Upon first reaching out to Jason he was responsive and professional and was able to detail out his packages, which were very fairly priced considering his talent. When my husband and I met with Jason we were impressed with how thorough he was and his photographs speak for themselves. It was important to us to have a photographer with a photo journalistic approach but also to capture the portraits. He did a great job getting both.
Jason quickly offers you a glimpse of your photos immediately following the wedding, which is so great since you are still riding the "wedding high". Then the reveal is in his studio on a big screen and it's an amazing experience to see it all relived again. He was then able to help us with great thank you cards and now we are excited to get started on our album.
Thank you Jason for helping us relive our memories through your photographs.
