Emil Schiavo Photography
The pictures all turned out fabulously and I loved the way Emil was able to capture candid shots on the dance floor. I know my bridal party wasn't making the job easy, but I felt like there may have been a few shots missed of family at the church. All in all I was very pleased with everything!
Emil photographed my older sister's wedding, and I absolutely loved his play on colors and lighting. My husband and I wanted to definitely have nice pictures, but we did not have a huge budget to work with. Emil negotiated fairly with us and was very clear with his expectations. We had a themed Halloween wedding, and Emil managed to capture all of the funny, romantic and loving moments. Seeing his pictures in person made me cry, something I didn't even do on the day of my wedding! He has a definitely and subtle talent. He was never in our faces or feeling the need to stage constantly. He knows what he's doing and finds perfect moments. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a laid back, professional and well-experienced photographer. He is not a chainy, unresponsive company. Your calls and emails go directly to him, and you always hear back from him. He puts a personal touch on what I viewed as one of the most important components of my marriage and wedding day-happy memories.
Emil was a great photographer and the photos turned out wonderful. I did have a few guest saying they didn't feel he was a approachable in taking random pictures of them poses for the theme of our wedding.
Emil is one of Chicago's top photographers! The bride and groom have no worries using this service.
For Award-winning photography, it doesn't get any better than Emil. From his calm demeanor and gentle manner I always see a relaxed bride and groom enjoying themselves throughout their their reception. In addition, his formal attire will certainly be noticed by your guests and provide an heir of distinction for your formal event. His state-of-the art equipment, deidcation to perfection and editing talents are evident on every image, from the first to the last. I highly endorse Emil Schiavo. (p.s. for those who want to capture and preserve the sights and sounds of their event for future generations, remember to ask him about the professional videography services that also can be provided.)
