I met Ben and Mike at a wedding expo. They had gorgeous display so it was
easy to see how their work turned into something tangible. And they took the time to
speak to each person individually, which truly displayed their professionalism and level of service.

We reached out to them and they had us fill out a little questionnaire
of our expectations for the big day. Ben offered to have is either
come into the studio, Skype, or hop on a phone call to go through our
answers, which really made it convenient for us. About two months out,
we had a second call which was a little more in depth and personal to us as a couple (i.e. what parts of the day we were most looking forward to, etc.) and it was done individually, so they could really get each of our perspectives. This call was to narrow down from their staff who would be the best fit for our goals/objectives for the day and in the end Kevin was chosen as our lead photographer.

The day of, Kevin and Missy, his assistant, showed up ready to work. They really put everyone at ease and were extremely patient with all the complications thrown at them (i.e. young children, huge group formal portraits, other bridal parties at shoot locations, etc.) They really fed off of our ideas and came up with new ones on the spot. They scheduled a "Premiere" following our wedding at their studio where we viewed a slideshow . We knew there were a few gems before we even saw the pictures, but once the online gallery was available to share with our friends and family, it was beyond our expectations. They captured off-beat moments, interesting angles, minute details, and creative dance floor shots that really captured the energy of the day. It is going to be extremely difficult picking our favorites for our wedding photo album to come.

One of the first things my husband and I booked for our wedding day was our photographer. It was extremely important to us to have the day captured and have amazing photographs for us to remember by, especially when the day flies by so quickly. We had received several recommendations from friends for different photographers in Chicago, but This Is Feeling was so unique compared to the rest. As soon as we met with Ben from This Is Feeling we immediately booked him that day. Not only is he incredibly talented but also so easy to talk to and really does try to get a feel of exactly what you are looking for and what is important to you and your significant other. He is not pushy in any way (compared to my prior experience with some other well known photographers) and respects your time and wishes. We did engagement photos to feel him out to know what to expect on our wedding day and help calm our nerves being in front of a camera. He is very laid back and makes you feel at ease and incredibly comfortable. To be honest I didn't even feel like he was there taking pictures- he catches so many amazing candids that really shows your true feelings and expressions at that moment. My husband and I were blown away by our wedding photos. This Is Feeling put a lot of hard work and time to ensure they capture what is important to us, and they did that and more. I would highly recommend booking them!!

I had an amazing experience with This is Feeling! My (now) husband and I were trying to find a photographer that fit our style while appeasing to our parents idea of "good photography". This was quite challenging considering that we were planning a Chicago wedding while living in New York City. Ben and his team were wonderful! They met with us over various Skype sessions to make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted. We were worried that our parents wouldn't appreciate some of the stylistic photos and would think they were too "touch feely" (pun intended), but both of our parents absolutely loved every photo!
Kevin did such a great job making sure he got photos that really captured all emotions felt during the wedding! He always maintained professionalism and was able to help us predict where things could get disorganized which made everything work so smoothly on the big day(s). We loved working with him and are bummed that we don’t live in Chicago to grab more beers with him. My husband and I are were pretty awkward and nervous about being in front of a camera, and Kevin made it so easy and natural. The photo slide show continues to bring laughs and tears for anyone we show it to.
Thanks Ben and Kevin for making our special weekend unforgettable!

After a seemingly endless search for the right photographer, my husband and I finally found what we were looking for with This is Feeling photography. From the very first Skype meeting with Ben, we were certain that he would faultlessly capture every important moment of our wedding day. Of course, when the day finally arrived, we weren’t surprised to see that he’s both a very assidous and composed photographer. Along with our officiant, Ben helped us set the perfect mood for the day, assuring us that we would not have to worry about him. Unlike some wedding photographers we’ve seen during other weddings, Ben was able to skilfully find the perfect balance between being noticeable and being inconspicous. All of our guests remarked that he was very courteous and considerate, and we could not agree more.

As promised, we had access to our photos about 4 weeks after the wedding, and we couldn’t be happier with the final product. Although we had already seen a great deal of Ben’s work, we were delighted to see that the photos of our wedding surpassed even our own expectations. The photo montage that was created for our « premier » was extremely touching and deftly put together, and many of our friends who were unable to attend the wedding told us that the montage made them feel as though they had actually been present on the big day.



We consider ourselves very fortune to have found This is Feeling Photography and we continue to sing their praises to both our friends and family. If you’re looking for THE BEST photographer(s) in the Midwest, then look no further !

Patrick and I could not have been more thrilled with the way Ben and Jacob captured our wedding day. A+++++. They. were. EVERYWHERE. Literally sweating their butts off because our venue's A/C went on the brink, they were always in the right spot catching our emotions, our friends' and families', and the beauty of our venue and it's landscape. During our reception, Ben did not hesitate to grab us for a couple minutes to capture some epic photos just as a storm rolled in. The massive bluish-gray storm clouds behind us in the twilight of our day - these, along with every photo taken, are the reason we love ThisisFeeling. When we saw these photos for the first time, and still today, and until forever, I am so grateful for the talent these guys have. I absolutely cherish our photos.

My husband and I struggled to find a photographer early in our planning process. We were ecstatic when we came across Ben and his team at This Is Feeling. We loved the quality of their past work and the overall feel of their photographs.

My husband and I are not good at posing for pictures, and we prefer more candid and natural shots. Ben and his assistant did just that. They made us feel comfortable and worry free.

Ben communicated promptly and efficiently, and he was open to suggestions (and accommodated them) regarding picture groupings we wanted.

We could not be more pleased with how our photos turned out. They are beautiful, and they really captured the joyous emotions of our wedding day.

I could not have picked a photographer. Our wedding photos are perfect. I still tear up when I look at them. The feelings I felt that day are clearly captured. We did not have a forever session with Ben, so our only photo interaction with him was on the day. I am a little shy when it comes to having my photo taken & Ben made me feel so comfortable. I felt like he was an old friend I had known for years.
During the ceremony & the reception, I forgot he was there. Once I saw the photos – I realized he was everywhere. He truly caught it all. I have received so many compliments on these photos & cannot thank Ben & Mike enough. I wanted the best photographers for our wedding day, & we got them. I am so grateful I have these photos to keep our wedding day memory alive. Thank you, Ben & Mike!

Working with Ben was a complete joy and honor for both my husband and I. We are so sad that our time spent with him is over! From the very beginning of what has the makings to be a very stressful process, he went above and beyond to make us feel supported, comfortable and confident. We were extremely impressed by the amount of time Ben took to truly get to know us. Ben, who captured our engagement pictures as well as our wedding pictures, is simply the best...I had no idea the process could be so much fun! Not only have my husband and I walked away with wonderful memories and new relationships made, but we now have the wedding album of our dreams. We couldn't be happier with what he has created for us, our family, and friends.

We LOVED having Ben as our wedding photographer. He was so great to work with and such a cool, down to earth guy. When I was looking for a wedding photographer, I didn't want just any ordinary photographer. I wanted someone with a vision and creative style behind their photos. After looking through probably almost a hundred photography sites (not kidding...), I finally saw Ben's photos and loved them. The photography for our wedding was the most important part for me because it's something you have to look at for the rest of your life, so I wanted it to be perfect. Ben did such an amazing job and we loved our wedding photos. My advice is don't hire any ordinary photographer for your wedding; anybody can take a 'nice' picture with a really expensive camera. Hire someone who knows what they're doing and can take amazing pictures. I would recommend Ben to all my friends and family.
