Oscar and S1 Photography were recommended to us by our wedding planner. Within 10 minutes of meeting him and seeing his photos, we knew he was the photographer we wanted. Oscar went above and beyond the call of duty. He and his assistant took fun, creative and innovative photographs that have garnered "ooh's and ahh's" from anyone that's seen them. He's a joy to work with and we absolutely loved having him at our wedding.

Oscar was referred to us by good friends that had booked Oscar as their wedding photographer years ago. We could not be more thankful to them for the recommendation.

If you are lucky enough to book Oscar for your wedding, your wedding day will be captured in a way you never imagined possible. When Oscar explained to us his approach to photography, he told us his main goal was to memorialize who we were as a couple and tell our story from start to finish. We never imagined that with every photograph he took, he had in mind how that moment would enhance his "narrative" of our day. Without anyone noticing, Oscar observed the relationships between us, our family, friends and guests, in order to capture the most expressive (and always genuine) moments of our interactions and the interactions of those for whom we care so much. He would even anticipate when jokes were going to be told in order to capture the reactions of those in the conversation. Most impressively, he did all of this without inserting himself into the event and making himself constantly known.

Furthermore, Oscar is a true artist. He has an eye that sets him apart from most other photographers and is incredibly tasteful and skilled at editing and enhancing the photographs on the post-production side. We were truly amazed, as was everyone else who viewed the gallery, at the quality of the images and the care that went into the selection and editing process.

Finally, Oscar sincerely cares about his clients. He won't ever overbook in order to give the individual attention he believes every client should have. He went above and beyond for us, even arriving a little early to capture additional moments of our preparation at the hotel when we had not booked that time with him. Furthermore, he goes so far as to invite you to his home studio once he has finalized the images in order to show you the photographs in a carefully thought out presentation.

We really can't thank Oscar (and his assistant Golda) enough and we look forward to booking with Oscar again!

It's been such a wonderful experience working with Oscar of S1 Weddings...before, during and after our wedding day.

During our early planning with Oscar, we felt right away that he was would be fun to work with: He has a wonderful energy and positive attitude...and moreover, Oscar had the knowledge & experience to help us select the right venues in Chicago to take pictures with our guests.

During our wedding day itself, he (and his assistant Golda) were also very professional and courteous in working with our guests...we had ALL our guests (around 50) go with us for our picture shoots just before our cocktail hour, and Oscar was able to capture all the best images, ensure that we stayed on schedule and also keep it fun & lively. During the ceremony and reception, even though we barely noticed Oscar in the room, he was able to truly capture the story and emotion of our day. He has the talent and the photo journalistic eye to capture each scene in such a way that we can vividly re-live the feelings of that moment.

After our wedding day, he provided us with great communication & follow up...He promptly provided previews on our Facebook page, and within a few weeks, he invited us over to his home studio to view all the pictures of the day. Also, we liked that the packages he offered were very simple & un-complicated, and he gave us great guidance to select the right package for us. Later on, we particularly appreciated that Oscar even hand delivered copies of our picture DVD to our home so that we could share them with our families for an upcoming trip. Our families were amazed with the photos!

In all, we're very proud to recommend S1 Weddings & we're happy and grateful that Oscar was able to share his talents with us. Thanks Oscar!

I love Oscar and his work! A friend of a friend had used Oscar for their wedding long before I was even engaged and from the minute I saw their pictures I knew I would use him for my wedding. He is extremely personable as well as responsive to your wants. My husband and I wanted to steer clear of the 'posed' pictures and we were ecstatic when we saw the final results. Some of the emotions he captured are just amazing. We love, love, love our pictures and are so grateful for Oscar's attention to detail. Oscar understands how important your wedding day is and will NOT let you down.

We could not have been happier with our wedding photography. Our special day was captured perfectly thanks to S1 weddings. Everything went smoothly from the engagement photo session to planning out the schedule for our big day, and the final products of our wedding photos and album were more beautiful than we could have imagined. It was a pleasure working with Oscar and we enjoyed his friendly personality as much as his photography skills.

S1 Photography was the best decision we made for our wedding. We have amazing pictures that have captured the emotion and special moments of our wedding day for a lifetime. Oscar really got to know us as a couple and was a pleasure to work with. The pictures he takes are artistic and each is unique - it's so much more than just a bunch of traditional poses at the alter that you see from so many photographers. I would recommend S1 Photography to anyone looking for unique, beautiful pictures that really capture the emotion of your wedding.

He made us feel totally comfortable, and gave us complete confidence in his skills and service. He took the time to learn all about us and our families, so he could really capture all of the important moments of our big day! And he did just that! Our wedding photographs, DVD, album and prints are spectacular! He captured so much emotion and every special, meaningful moment from beginning to end! We could not have imagined anything better!
Thank you Oscar for your wonderful services, and for sharing in our special day! We will cherish our pictures and DVD forever!

My husband and I were impressed from the very first moment that we met with Oscar. We were blown away with his photos from others' weddings and felt that he was just the kind of person we'd want to spend our most special day with. And we made the perfect choice. On our wedding day, Oscar put us at ease around the camera, soon became a favorite amongst the bridal party and guests, and captured the most important moments through the eye of an true artist. We are absolutely thrilled with his work and couldn't have found a more responsive, thorough, and kind person to work with.

Oscar's work speaks for itself. His ability to capture a moment that will be cherished forever goes unmatched. He and his quality of work are worth every single penny. We have gotten nothing but compliments on both our Engagement and Wedding photos and will continue getting compliments for the rest of our lives. Oscar has definitely gone above and beyond our expectations. He has easily pleased me - and I must say that I am very particular and hard to win over. As advertised - you will get artistic storytelling through photography. The stories he delivered through photos alone were so well told, that the absence of a videographer was soon forgotten. It would be an honor to have Oscar @ S1 Weddings be our "life" photographer...

I absolutely cannot say enough good things about S1 Photography, they are wonderful and so incredibly fun and professional! I had a relatively large wedding, with lots of professional vendors, and throughout some drama of the day and the stress of keeping everything together I never, ever had to worry about the photography. Oscar and his assistant were there early and took pictures of everything I wanted and more. I am a professional photographer myself, so I was most concerned about hiring a really good wedding photographer to "meet my high expectations" and S1 Photography did that and then some. I am so glad that I spent the extra money and hired them over anyone else - they were worth every penny! Thank you!!

Oscar was a dream to work with; He was the best of all the wedding vendors I worked with throughout the wedding experience. Oscar was incredibly flexible as I was planning my Chicago wedding from out-of-state. Oscar provided me the best of both worlds, as I felt as though my wedding photos were in the hands of both a professional and a friend. Oscar captured the unique personalities of my husband and I in photographs that are both timeless and priceless. I have heard time and again from family and friends that no one has ever seen wedding pictures like mine. My wedding photographs are art. I would highly recommend S1 Photography to any bride who desires to preserve the uniqueness of her day with photographs she will cherish for a lifetime.

WOW! That's what I have to say about the images that Oscar captured at our wedding! It has been a great pleasure to work with him. We just had our "Premier Viewing" and LOVED what we saw. Can't wait to finalize the album and get some retouched prints. He did a fantastic job of capturing moments and the story of us and our day. We were not that interested in very many formal shots. The portraits he took of us are modern looking and there is a ton of variety! The photos of us all dancing and having fun at the reception are wonderful too. He stayed longer than expected and the last photos he took are some of the best! He's very creative and attentive and I would recommend him to anyone.
He's not inexpensive, but I feel like it's worth it - the photos are one of the most lasting parts of the wedding - they are what we will have years and years from now to tell our story. It takes him a little while to go through the pictures before you can see them all, but it's worth the wait! In the mean time, he sent teasers and even an "Album trailer" - amazing!

Oscar of S1 Weddings was a dream photographer. His photo-journalistic style captured the exact moments of the wedding we'd otherwise miss or forget. He uses an assistant, which is an important add to make sure all those moments are captured. He has an amazing eye for situating formal portraits, so that you wind up with something that looks more like art than it does a row of nicely dressed ducks. And his post-process artistic touch means you'll have photographs on hand for years to come. Photographs you'll be proud to share. We loved Oscar so much, we are trying to figure out what other "life celebrations" in which we can utilize his services. You won't be disappointed!

He has an amazing eye for situating formal portraits, so that you wind up with something that looks more like art than it does a row of nicely dressed ducks. And his post-process artistic touch means you'll have photographs on hand for years to come. Photographs you'll be proud to share. We loved Oscar so much, we are trying to figure out what other "life celebrations" in which we can utilize his services. You won't be disappointed! Read less

We worked with Oscar and his wife Kartika originally for engagement pics, but Kartika just had a baby so he’s been using a fill in assistant. Anyway, from what we can tell so far, they did a great job. He was very easy to work with and very unobtrusive.
