Chicago-based wedding photographer Rick Aguilar and his team are extremely talented golden hearted photographers! On my wedding day, Rick and his two photographer assistants smiled, directed, laughed and snapped photos of EVERY moment of our wedding day with kindness and professionalism! They are extremely educated on the latest photographic style trends, equipment, special effects, and they always know their way around a venue for the best possible angles. Rick is a very popular photographer and has great relationships with many wedding planners, venues, makeup/hair artists and caterers. Being able to see him coordinate and associate so well with all of our vendors and our planner made for a fool-proof, perfect wedding day! We love Rick!

I am truly blessed to have met and worked with Rick, Eliisa and the entire team at Rick Aguilar Studios. My wedding planner - Anthony at Liven It Up Events - matched me well with Rick and said we would be like peanut butter and jelly. Well what a great sandwich we made! I have never worked with such an amazing professional before who knew exactly what to do in every situation to make anyone he photographed feel cool and calm but also excited to be "under the lense". Rick has worked with such an array of different personalities and people like Mayor Daley, Reality Show stars and more. Nothing surprises him and with every click of the camera you can tell he truly adores what he does. He made each and every family member feel as special as the bride and groom - which was important for me to see. He also has an eye for what will and will not work and guides you into just the perfect pose possible. Ladies - he IS the second most important man to have at your wedding! Thank you Rick for well............being you :).

Rick himself, along with Clare Britt, captured our wedding day perfectly! They were an amazing team, patient with us, seeming to genuinely enjoy every minute and putting us at ease every step of the way. It was truly like they were an extension of the bridal party/family - they were so natural and behind the scenes, capturing those candid moments so effortlessly!! AMAZING!!! The only thing I wish is that we had more time with them!!

Clare and her assistant were phenomenal! Forgive me, I can't remember her assistant's name right now but he was terrific!! They were so easy to work with and this is really important because your photographers will be with you all day, so they have to be people that you like. I never met Clare before the wedding, we only spoke on the phone and via email but she is a terrific person. She and her assistant had amazing ideas and they are true artists. I don't know how to explain it but if you watch Clare work, you can actually see her envisioning the photo before she takes it. She is a master!! She made every feel comfortable. She wasn't pushy or in the way. Her assistant would shoot pictures at these amazing angles and the two of them work so well together that you would think that they had been together their entire lives. I loved them so much! This is a big deal for me because I used a different photographer for my engagement photos and that guy was a disaster, so the wedding pictures were definitely on the top of my list and I was a little wary after being burned by that other photographer. Clare and her assistant were the best and I had such a great experience with them! Also, Clare took time out to call me a few times before the wedding to discuss the type of photos that I wanted and she even encouraged me to create a pinterest board with the wedding photography that I liked as inspiration. Clare listened to any concerns that I may have had and definitely put me at ease. She is easy going, professional and a true master at her craft!! Hiring Clare from Rick Aguilar studios was one of the best decisions that I made!! To all those brides out there, remember that the pictures are important because that is what you have left after the flowers have died and the cake is all gone...well the pictures and your husband ;)
