Magnifica Photography is a fresh, independent studio based in the Chicagoland area, focusing on weddings and portraits. With a photojournalistic approach to my art, I believe more in capturing moments as they happen and less in controlling the action. I offer customized packages and a one-on-one approach to your wedding day. You always meet or talk to your photographer - me - there are no surprises on your wedding day!

Pricing begins at $1,500. Albums and other items are offered as an a la carte option, along with engagement sessions and portrait sessions. And don't forget to ask me about my specialised and confidential boudoir sessions, either at home or a boutique hotel!

I knew from our first consultation that Caryn would have to be our photographer. She went above and beyond showing us options and helping us customize a package that fit our needs. On the day of she literally was the one who kept me centered and focused and I could not have gotten through the day without her. We got married in a small chapel with just one center aisle, which I thought would be limiting, but she was able to get every shot without being obtrusive. I can't recommend Magnifica enough!

Caryn is awesome!! We knew within a few minutes of meeting with Caryn that we wanted her to do our photograhy. She is very enthusiastic, artistic, and is great at what she does. She loves her job and it shows. Caryn is very easy to work with, you won't even notice her as she takes tons of pictures. She is very prompt at responding to emails. My husband and I loved working with her and her pictures are absolutely stunning! We highly recommend her and will use Magnifica Photography again when we need more pictures taken!!!

Caryn was an absolute joy as our wedding photographer. She was responsive, upbeat and very talented. Some of our guests even commented on how much they liked her (as did we). She even graciously obliged us with some challenging large group shots. We loved her work and would hire her again IN A MINUTE. Thanks Caryn, YOU ARE THE BEST! Duane and Mary Bolin

Amazing!! Caryn did such a great job with everything. We met before the wedding, at the country club, to go over details and what kind of pictures I was looking for. Caryn really listend to everything I wanted and made some right on suggestions of what would work for that venue. The day of the wedding Caryn was so professional and on top of everything. The family portraits, that were so important to me, went SO smooth. I had so many family members complimenting me on my photographer and telling me how awsome she was even before the pics came out. When the pics came out, WOW!!!! Unbelievable. They were perfect! Caryn even reworked some outdoor shots I didn't think we would get due to weather, and those last min. ideas turned out to be some of my favorite shots. Highly reccomend!!!!!!

Caryn Bierbauer, with Magnifica Photography is a true delight.
1. When you first meet with her, she brings an entire album of a wedding. She doesn't just show you her "best" shots. She shows a wedding from beginning to end.
2. She offers many different packages to choose from. She also works with a wonderful album company.
3. Caryn is very flexible. She does her best to work with your schedule/agenda.
4. She loves getting to know the couple, their friends and family. She becomes a friend through the process.
5. She absolutely loves what she does and you can tell.
All I can say is that she was worth the money. Most importantly, she does quality work. Her photographs are beautiful.

I did a headshot/portrait session with Caryn and had THE best time. Honestly, I usually loathe having my photo taken, but she put me at ease and made the whole experience fun! I actually can't wait until my boyfriend pops the question so she can take our engagement and wedding photos!

An absolute delight to work with from beginning to end, Caryn Bierbauer has a terrific eye for the exact shot, angle, and lighting. We could not have asked for a more perfect photographer to shoot our wedding -- she is an artist in every sense of the word! She immediately endeared herself to all she came in contact with...everyone, from the wedding party to friends and family, all noticed her wonderfully enthusiastic attitude. She was quite simply a joy to be around. Her knack for searching out all the little bits and pieces of our personalities and capturing them on film was only equalled by her technical excellence and precision. Clearly, this lady knows what she's doing and loves doing it! Her work is as brilliant and lively as she is; the angles and landscapes, poses and closeups, focuses and smiles all compose an album so full of life and movement, it feels as though it's happening all over again in the present!
Caryn is quick, talented, unobtrusive, efficient, very reasonable, and a joy to have present at any celebration. We recommend her most heartily!!

Caryn was a delight to work with! She is very friendly and understands the demands of wedding photography. She helped us coordinate an efficient timeline for our special day. She works very well with difficult-to photograph wedding participants! We highly recommend Magnifica!

Caryn is AMAZING. she was so professional and yet so friendly - making our entire session very comfortable! Caryn was able to capture those special quiet moments a bride has on her wedding day and she captured the love my husband and I had in our eyes during the ceremony. The final pictures far exceeded our expectations and we loved them so much, we flew Caryn out to our home in NJ to take pictures of us while expecting our first baby. She was worth it!!

I have had several portrait sessions with Caryn Bierbauer from Magnifica Photography. Caryn is so kind, courteous and focused on the details. You just know that she wants everything to be fantastic for you. She facilitated a portrait session with my immediate family, and every single picture was amazing. The group shots, the couples, the "head" shots, they were all incredible. She was also extremely patient when working my dogs, which was really sweet and she captured their little personalities in way that I didn't think was possible! Overall, Caryn is just amazing and such a pleasure to work with! I would highly recommend her!

Caryn also shot a wedding that I was a bridesmaid in, and she was incredible the entire time. She took time to set up all kinds of fun, artsy, sweet shots and all the pics were totally amazing! The best wedding pics I've ever seen.

I have a baby on the way and I cannot wait to have Caryn do the baby pictures!
