Joshua is an amazing photographer! We appreciated the time he spent with us to get to know us, our wishes for our wedding and things that were important to us overall. He asked a lot of questions to help ensure that he provided the best services he could. Two factors that were especially important to us were (1) skill in photographing plus-size people; and (2) comfort with shooting pictures for a gay wedding. In both cases, Joshua was warm, accepting and handled things with finesse. He and his assistant blended in with the crowd and took tons of great photos without being disruptive. He worked with us to find locales that we loved for pictures prior to the reception. We had the perfect blend of “artistic” shots of more traditionally-styled weddings and real-life shots of us just having fun and being together with our friends and families. Overall, we had an enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend Joshua to any couple getting married. He was a joy to work with.

My husband and I had Joshua as both our wedding and engagement photo photographer and been so pleased with his work! I don't think that I could have asked for a better photographer to work with than Joshua. He definitely provides personal attention and really works with you to ensure you are getting all the shots that you want. He is very personable, easy to work with and flexible. His work speaks for itself and the photos that are highlighted on his website and blog are not "just a few of the best" but instead are truly a representation of his work as a whole. My husband and I were happy with our entire photo collection from the day and it was extremely hard narrow down our choices for the wedding album. My favorite compliment I heard in regards to my wedding photos was, "This looks like a bridal magazine cover!" Joshua's package also includes rights to all of the photos---so I have every single wedding picture from our day to cherish forever---not just those that are in my album or purchased off a website (as so many other photographers do). I recommend him to everyone!

We had Joshua Albanese shoot our outdoor wedding last August. It was a terrific experience! We did an engagement shoot with Joshua a few months prior to the wedding, which was a good chance to get to know Joshua and practice poses in front of the camera. That photo shoot was a ton of fun, and the wedding ended up being the same way. Joshua's very lively and puts everyone at ease so all of our pictures looked natural and relaxed. He was very confident and always thinking up new creative ways to get a different shot. The pictures turned out superbly -- we couldn't even make a list of favorites because they were all too good. There were intimate personal shots, fun group shots and everything looked stellar. We enjoyed the process and the outcome was just what we wanted. It was great to be able to relax and enjoy the day, knowing that the pictures Joshua was putting together were going to turn out top-notch.

Josh was the best photographer! Working with him was an absolute pleasure. He was fun and professional, which made having him with us throughout our wedding day a blast! He took great pictures and really captured the little moments that made our wedding special. He knew when to lay back and knew the right moments to get in there and direct us a little bit so we'd have great pictures. Thank you thank you for shining a light our big day!

I can't say enough nice things about Joshua and his team. My wife and I live on the East Coast, but we were planning our wedding back home in Peoria. Obviously planning a wedding from that far has its logistical challenges, but Joshua made it so much easier for us. He talked to us on Skype, on the phone, and got back to us via email to learn who we were and what was important to us for the big day. Even though he works primarily in the Chicago area, he had no issues making the 3 hour drive down to Peoria to spend the day at our wedding. He was the vendor that we had the fewest concerns about going into the big day--he did such a great job building a relationship with us that we had absolute faith in him. And boy were we right! The pictures are spectacular and he fully captured the essence of the day from start to finish. I would definitely recommend him. Just have a conversation with him and look through his books and I'm sure you'll feel the same way.

My husband & I utilized Joshua Albanese for our engagement photos and wedding in Chicago this past summer. Both of my sisters were previously married in Chicago & I failed to use either of those photographers because the photos did not live up to my standards. I am extremely picky when it comes to photography and I feel this is the most important wedding vendor, as all that remains post wedding is the photography.

I chose Joshua because it was obvious based on his portfolio that he is extremely talented, creative, and provides only high quality shots. I was pleasantly surprised upon meeting him that he was just as personable as he was a talented photographer. It is extremely important that my husband and I felt comfortable with the team, in order for photos to turn out natural and uninhibited. It was very easy to feel comfortable around Joshua and confident in his ability.

Throughout our wedding the photography team was seamless & professional. Upon receiving our photos they were just as spectacular as we expected. Every picture was high quality & no key moments went uncaptured. If you have high standards & believe photography is one of the single most important elements of your wedding, do yourself a favor and hire Joshua Albanese, he will not disappoint.
