Weddings and newspaper photojournalism are two photography passions in my life. I feel very blessed that I can apply my creative experience as a staff photographer for the Chicago Sun-Times to the bride and groom of today. Today’s couples are asking for real pictures that tell the story of their special day, something that just comes naturally to me. Lucky for us! Read less

Rich and his son Rich (a.k.a. Camera 1 and Camera 2) gave us great memories and were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. My wife and I appreciated their kind temperament, and our interactions with them before, during, and after the wedding were not only satisfying, but enjoyable. During a process which can be stressful, Rich and Rich helped us plan our photo agenda ahead of time and they walked us through it on the big day so that we could relax and simply enjoy each other. Our pictures were fantastic, and we love the canvas print that we see on our wall every day. Rich and Rich took care of all our photography needs at a price we were pleased with. They were a genuine pleasure to have at our wedding. Recommended!

Wow! How professionally this team is! He has been our family's "go-to" photographer for a few years now. when someone in the family gets engaged, they automatically know who they want their wedding photographer to be... Rich Chapman! Not only is the final product just spectacular, but the experience on the big day is what makes working with him so great! I think my favorite part of working with Rich Chapman photographers was that we met with them a few times leading up to our wedding day and he really helped guide us since we really had no clue what the best plan of action was. We appreciated that guidance so much and it made our wedding day so smooth and stress-free!!
Thank you so much Rich Chapman Photographers!!

Rich Chapman and his partner/son were brilliant. I had two events--very Indian centric--and they did a great job capturing all the vibrant colors and festivities amid the larger than ususal crowds. They were also very accommodating and thorough and took the time out to discuss well beforehand how the ceremonies and events would unfold.

Rich is the best photographer I have ever seen! He went above and beyond what I dreamed for our wedding photos! We got teary eyed just looking at the photos, because he documented moment by moment of the whole wedding. AMAZING!!

I’m a professional photographer myself, so I set a high bar for my wedding photographer. Rich Chapman and his son did a fabulous job that exceeded even my expectations. His photos are technically excellent, of course, but more importantly, he captured the love, joy and fun of our ceremony and reception. He was even ready when a vintage B-24 Liberator unexpectedly flew over our ceremony!
Rich and his son make a great team, and they went about their work with charm, class and utmost professionalism. They understood that we were there to celebrate with family and friends, not to pose endlessly for the photographer; I was impressed with the great wedding portraits they captured, and how efficiently they did this so we could get back to the party.
We know that magic day will come alive for us every time we look through Rich’s work. My wife and I and our family and friends will cherish these photos forever.

I cannot express enough how appreciative we are that Rich was our wedding photographer! Absolutely wonderful. Rich is a family friend, so naturally, we immediately thought he would be a good choice for our wedding photographer. Little did we know that we had chosen THE BEST photographer we could ever ask for. Literally everything we could ever want in our photo album is there. Every little detail of our wedding captured beautifully. I had ZERO stress as a bride that our photos were going to turn out well, and let me tell you, that was a WONDERFUL feeling. Rich was so well organized and efficient too. Everyone always talks about how their faces hurt from smiling for so long taking photos after the wedding, right? We took photos at the church for 15 minutes only, and we got HUNDREDS OF absolutely amazing photos. HUNDREDS. Noone complained about taking a million photos, every single person in our wedding was captured, every single guest is in a photo. Everything was amazing. And then pre-reception and reception photos are just as amazing! We had a rainy day in summer for our wedding, and somehow we still have the most beautiful pictures I could ever ask for. Rich has a great eye for what is going to make a perfect photo, so take his advice and let him guide you. We felt so stress-free working with him, we honestly could not be happier! We will definitely be using Rich for all of our photography needs from here on out!

Rich's photos exceeded our expectations! In all of our planning, the photos were our number one priority. We wanted them to be nice because we knew we would have them for forever. The style was very professional and timeless (unlike some of the washed out hipster-y type photos that you see these days), which was the perfect fit for us! Rich and his son were very professional, organized, creative, and willing to accommodate our needs. A lot of the shots we would have never thought to take and they turned out beautiful!
One of my favorite things is that we had our photos back so quickly! We have friends that got married the same weekend and STILL don't have their photos, but we started seeing some of the first photos while we were still on our honeymoon! What service!
Our albums were timely too and they look absolutely incredible! We could not be happier with the results.

THANK YOU, RICH!
