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!

Michelle Lytle Photography is amazing!! We had one of the associate photographers, Houston, photograph our wedding and he was amazing as well. Michelle was extremely quick in answering emails regarding our wedding pictures, and Houston while at our wedding was amazing at taking pictures. It seemed like he never stopped taking pictures, which showed us that he is truly dedicated to what he does! In short, if you want amazing wedding photos at a reasonable price with great service, definitely use this vendor!

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!

When my husband and I first met with Michelle, we got along with her very well. She was very friendly; she invited us to her home and showed us beautiful examples of her wedding work. We felt very comfortable with her and we felt that we could relate to her. Once we hired her for our wedding, she offered us a great deal on engagement photos, which we took advantage of. We took them in downtown Chicago; she met us on a Sunday at both of our conveniences and it was a great session with wonderful photos. We weren’t entirely sure what we wanted, but she had some great ideas for us. In a timely manner, we received all of the engagement photos on disc. One important advantage of working with Michelle is that she will give you the rights to the photos.
Leading up to the wedding, I was in touch with Michelle frequently via email. She was always accessible and gave me prompt and helpful responses. She had me create and send her a “shot list” of all the photos I definitely wanted for the wedding, and sent me a couple examples when I wasn’t entirely sure what to do.
We hired Michelle for 5 hours with a second shooter. On the day of the wedding, she and her partner were right on time and got immediately to work, thirty minutes before the ceremony began. Our wedding shots came out amazingly. We were very impressed by the quality of the photographs. She took everything we asked on the shot list and tons of candids of our guests. I was especially impressed by the photos she took of our reception hall and our decorations, and of our first dances. Michelle was very professional yet friendly, and many of our guests commented that they didn’t even notice her taking all those shots. A few guests that did observe her commented that she had the amazing ability to get everywhere and catch so many important moments. Michelle worked so hard the night of our wedding and reception, and that shined through her photos.
Not only did we receive a disc of all of our wedding photos (about 450 of them, both color and black and white), but we also received a DVD slideshow set to music of our choice, and the photos are posted on her website for people to view.
I would highly recommend Michelle for any photography needs, but especially for weddings. Her talent, personality, and work ethic make her an excellent choice.

Our August 2008 wedding was small and intimate and we did not need the fuss of some of the overpriced packages that were out there. Michelle was recommended to me by a friend, and we corresponded. At first, she was not in our budget and then later she contacted us regarding a special which we were immediately excited about. Michelle showed us her work and we were hooked, she has a great eye for catching and creating unforgettable still life moments. She was very flexible as I continued to add time to the package. The big day finally arrived, and Michelle showed up on time ready to take photos. She was professional and unobtrusive. Although, the only thing I would have changed is her interactions with my family. Our videographer was very outgoing, and that presented a stark contrast to Michelle. The other thing is that our pictures, and DVD slide show did not arrive in the initial agreed upon time and sometimes there were uncomfortable lag times with responses, but I guess I chalked it up to the wedding season. Overall, Michelle has a great eye and the fact that you get all of your photos, you just cant beat that.
