Fine Art Wedding Photography with a Modern Flair

YazyJo Photography uses a fresh, modern approach with an eye for detail which allows for exceptional photographs for each bridal couple. Our photography is not just about taking an assortment of pictures on your wedding day. It is about capturing a lifelong story for one of the most special days of your life. The essence of your wedding day – from getting dressed to the last dance – will be captured by YazyJo while you relax and enjoy your special day.

Your unique story will be carried on in a gorgeous wedding album, which are one of a kind and imported from Italy. The album will bring to life the emotions, memories and story of your wedding. It will become a family heirloom passed down to generation after generation.

YazyJo Photography is the culmination of a lifelong goal for Yazy and John Raclawski, a two-photographer, husband and wife team based in the Chicago area. Together, along with their daughter, Annahlu, and dog, Heidi, they are building their dream business.

Through thoughtful pre-planning with the bridal couple and utilization of the latest photojournalism techniques, YazyJo Photography will help make your wedding dreams come true! Read less

I love Yazy and John! They travelled to my wedding in Northern Wisconsin. The day was full of tricky logistics and Yazy was there to keep everyone calm and in good spirits! She has the most calming and pleasant demeanor! You'd never guess she was actually directing you around (but she most certainly is!).

I have not received my pictures back yet, but the engagement shots were outstanding...and everytime I talk to Yazy or think of her...I get a huge smile on my face.

She believes in weddings! I found as I was interviewing other photographers, that many of them were shooting weddings because it was a way to make a living off an art form they were good at.

With Yazy, she loves weddings! She is a hopeless romantic and takes the time to get to know you as a couple. She gets so excited when she gets a good shot....you can tell how invested she is with her art.

She is truly one of a kind, and you'd be lucky to have her around on your big day! Thanks for everything, Yazy!

Everything about Yazy and John is AMAZING! From the very second we met Yazy we fell in love with her and her work. Yazy is sooo passionate about her work and finding the beauty in everything and it REALLY shows in her photographs. Our engagement session with Yazy was so much fun. She is willing to go wherever and we went downtown Chicago for our session. The day was amazing and the photographs turned out great! I will cherish them forever. Our wedding photos turned out gorgeous. I think having Yazy and John shoot our wedding was the best decision i made for the wedding. We love you guys!

If there is one word that would describe Yazy and John it would no doubt be "Perfect".... Not just by the images of our day that they provided us to enjoy the rest of our lives; that's obvious by the photos you can see. The reason they were perfect is due to the kind of people Yazy and John are. They worked with us. They made sure that everything my wife wanted was done. They worked with me to make sure the elements of the wedding I wanted were done as well. I'll be honest; my wife and I wanted a lot done for our wedding and we were very demanding. Yazy and John not only capured our wedding (and engagement) as we wanted, but exceeded our expectations by using their creative abilities to capure our big day even better then either one of us could have imagined. When looking at our pictures we actually got to experience our wedding again.. The point is this; Yazy and John are obvious great photographers (that goes without saying), but they are great people that will do what it takes to make sure your wedding is capured in a way that only they could do. I thank them both for the images they provided and for the friendship they help create. So as stated in the beginning; if there is one word I could use to describe YazyJo Photography is would be "Perfect".

Yazy and John were great! Let me just say that, I wouldn't have picked any other pair as perfect as they were for our wedding. Extremely flexible, Extremely understanding and extremely professional. Our day was non-stop from 7:30am til 11pm! That's a whole lot of wedding day - and they were completely devoted to us 100% of the time. We love ALL our pictures from our engagement session and wedding day - and we are grateful to have worked with such wonderful people. Thank you again, yazy and john!!

Yazmin and John were amazing photographers. We are thrilled with our pictures! Yazmin was able to capture the happiness and emotions of the day beautifully in her pictures. She made us very comfortable, like she was one of her friends. They really went above and beyond and were with us from the salon in the morning until the wedding ended at 11:30. I would highly recommend YazyJo Photography!!!

Yazmin and Jonh are great people and excellent photographer! All my friends and family simply agree that the pictures came out amazing. They captured things in a way I would have never thought of, which made for unique and beautiful pictures. I am very thankful for their patience since both sides of the family wanted certain pictures with certain people. Yazmin was able to help me please both sides and at the same time keep thinks on schedule and give my husband and I room for what we wanted. Yazmin and John are really nice people which made the wedding day simply a joy when it came to the photography. I wish all my vendors would have been that much of a joy to work with! I truly can not say enough good things about Yazmin and John, I would strongly recommend them to anyone for any occasion.

We were so happy with our choice to use Yazy. She is an excellent photographer. I chose her because I loved her photography, and then I was pleasantly surprised by her perfect personality. On top of her excellent photos, she was a pleasure to work with. She made us feel comfortable, was completely flexible (she treated us like her boss), and is just plain super sweet.

I think one of the best decisions I made for my wedding was choosing YazyJo for my photography. I felt like she was my best friend, doing everything possible to make it easy for me, and everything came out BEAUTIFULLY. We LOVE our pictures. All my friends and family agree that she is the best photographer they have seen, AND the most personable too. On your wedding day you would be surprised how important it is to have a photographer that you feel comfortable around. I truely can not say enough good things about her (and her husband). I would STRONGLY recomend her to anyone!
