Michelle saved our wedding!! Not only Robyn and Michelle take the most amazing photos of our perfect day, but they kept us on schedule and got me to the church when my limo flaked! She kept me calm and made sure my bridal party was chill too. During group photos, Michelle was so organized and got us through the family shots quickly and effortlessly. Robyn and Michelle are a dream to work with. They are incredibly talented and give you the best prints and so quick too! Looking through our photos was like going back through our entire wedding day! They are absolutely breath-taking! Look no further but Michelle Lytle Photography for your photographer!!!!

Michelle was absolutely delightful to work with! She was always prompt with communication, and so knowledgeable and helpful throughout our planning and our wedding.

We felt a great connection with Michelle during our initial meeting when she took us through her portfolio from our venue and helped us put together a timeline for the day of our wedding that would help us take pictures during the “magic hour” for our day.

We initially were apprehensive about doing an engagement shoot, but Michelle encouraged us to do one, and we were so happy that we did! Michelle’s pictures were amazing, and she really helped capture us and our personalities. Michelle turned around our engagement pictures so quickly, and they made us even more excited for the wedding!

Leading up to the wedding, Michelle helped us solidify our details including contingency plans for our outside pictures in case of inclement weather. Even though Michelle was out shooting a destination wedding the week before our wedding, she was still great about prompt communication.

The day of the wedding Michelle and Robyn were both on time and helped us keep on schedule. We had crazy weather the day of (rain! sun! snow!), and they were great about making game time decisions with us about where to take photos. Through the ceremony and reception they were always in the background but never in the way.

When the picture came back, we were blown away! Michelle and Robyn captured all the moments of the day beautifully, and we feel that we can relive our wonderful day through their photos.

Michelle was the photographer for my wedding in September 2015. She also took our engagement photos as part of her package and brought second shooter, Robin, with her on our wedding day. Michelle was so much fun to work with from our first meeting all through our wedding day. She is so down-to-earth and funny and easy going. She was planning her own wedding when we decided to hire her and it was great to have someone that was going through it all with you. After our engagement shoot, she went the extra mile and put together save-the-date postcards using photos from the shoot. They were a big hit!

Michelle puts all the photos in an online gallery for you to access and it is so easy to use. We just got our wedding photos yesterday - the exact day 3 weeks from the wedding Michelle said they'd be ready. I was able to download both the color and black and white albums to my laptop without issue. The photos are stunning! The day of the wedding, she and Robin showed up right on time and started shooting. I was so glad we did the engagement shoot first - on the wedding day I barely noticed they were snapping photos all around me! The posed family/wedding party photos were done quickly and efficiently and they all turned out perfect. Where she shines is the candid photos - our guests looks so interesting and fun, everyone is so happy and having a great time. She really caught the essence of each moment of the day. I can't recommend Michelle Lytle enough!

Michelle did an amazing job on our engagement and wedding photos! I couldn’t be happier. She’s great at capturing candid moments. While looking at our photos I kept thinking, “Wow, I didn’t even notice she was taking a picture of me then!” I was kind of unprepared regarding where to take photos the day of the wedding and she had great suggestions and helped everything flow smoothly, directing everyone for the posed photos. She was very quick to respond to emails throughout the whole process and was really flexible when we had to reschedule engagement photos several times because of bad weather. Her rates are incredibly reasonable and you get to download/access all of your photos in an easy-to-use online gallery. She’s also just a fun, chill person to be around and she introduced us to our new favorite ice cream place, so that’s important. I’m very happy with our choice to hire Michelle and highly recommend you do the same!

Michelle and Maddie photographed my wedding in July 2015. They did a fantastic job! We received our photos 3 weeks to the day after our wedding (quicker than a lot of places we talked to), and they were so good. We were really pleased with how responsive Michelle was, her dedication to photography and our wedding (she shot our wedding just a week after knee surgery)! Her prices are reasonable, and she will talk to you honestly about how much time/how many hours of photography you actually need. I never felt like she was pushing us to get more hours than we needed, and the option to add hours on was always there. My husband and I didn't even notice the photographers during the evening, but they were able to capture some really special moments - ideal for a wedding photographer! I can't say enough good things about Michelle. You won't be disappointed!

Michelle is the best! We used Michelle for our wedding on September 20th and my husband and I couldn't be happier with the experience. She is so professional and laid back, which was exactly what I wanted with my photographer. She did our engagement photos which turned out absolutely beautiful. Michelle and Houston were there the day of the wedding to do our photos and they were much more than just photographers. They really helped with any stress of the day and kept everything moving. Houston even ran back to the hotel for our flowers because we forgot them! They went above and beyond. Also, throughout the whole process, Michelle was so responsive and always there to answer any question I had. She checked with me weekly the last month before the wedding, which made me feel really confident about the day. Anyone looking for an excellent photographer in Chicago who knows how to capture the special moments should look no further.

Fantastic photographer! We used Erin Hoyt, one of Michelle's outstanding photographers for our August wedding. Our wedding was outside and on a rooftop and Erin was easily able to accommodate the constantly-evolving light conditions. She even found us a fantastic little nook in the Gold Coast to take more pictures. They ended up being our favorites of the bunch!

Our pictures were ready within a couple of weeks which was a wonderful surprise when we got back from our honeymoon. Their photo website is easy to use and easy to send out to friends and family who want to see the pictures.

All in all, I would highly recommend Erin and Michelle!

A friend of mine gave me Michelles name. From the first meeting we had with Michelle, we were hooked! She was very personable, extremely talented and her prices can not be beat!
We did our engagement pictures with Michelle in November 2012 in downtown Chicago. Being that we're huge Bears fans, all we told Michelle was that we wanted some pictures around Soldier Field. After taking pictures around the stadium, Michelle lead us to other places in the area that she thought we'd love.. and we did! Our pictures turned out amazing and we had them back within 2 weeks!
Our wedding day was no different! Michelle showed up early and was ready to shoot by the time we had agreed upon. Prior to the wedding, we had given her a short list of shots we wanted taken on the wedding day. She made sure to capture all of our request plus get some fun ones that she suggested!
It hasn't even been 3 weeks since our wedding and we just got all our photos! I've had friends use other photographers and they've waited 2 months to see their pictures!
I am in love with all of our photos! Michelle did an amazing job! She was professional, very easy to communicate with and she really knows what she's doing! I have a few friends getting married next year, I am absolutely recommending Michelle Lytle!
Thank again Michelle!
