“We absolutely love the album. It is everything we could have dreamed of and more! The cork is absolutely amazing and such a special touch! Thank you again for everything on our special day! You made it truly amazing!”
“THANK YOU!!!!! I just received the photo album……it is simply beautiful. You captured the joy of this special day. I could not help but smile as the pictures took me back to Jenny & Dave’s wedding day. The photos are priceless. I can hardly wait to share the album with my friends. Thank you again.”

Noelle did an amazing job. From the first time we met her we knew how passionate she was about taking wedding photos and capturing the moment. She offered suggestions but also listened and asked a lot of questions to make sure she understood what my daughter and son-in-law wanted for their special day. She is easy to work with and very creative. Her photographs capture different locations in Chicago with textures and backgrounds not often seen. Our pictures capture the entire day and look like they came from a bridal magazine layout. We would highly recommend Noelle.

Noelle was so amazing to work with! She was always willing to give us her honest opinion and ideas on areas to shoot around the city and where to get the best lighting. She also help me and my husband feel at ease in front of the camera and made the photoshoots so fun. This resulted in absolutely gorgeous photos throughout our entire wedding day! She truly captured the best moments. We weren’t able to afford a videographer, but Noelle was able to film our ceremony and speeches in addition to shooting the whole wedding day! My husband and I can’t stop looking at photos and watching the video she composed for us. Noelle is truly amazing to work with and very affordable for the quality of her work! We can’t say enough about how great working with her is – obviously we recommend her to everyone!

I just received our wedding pictures from Noelle and I can’t stop smiling. She has such an artist talent (without making our pictures look fake/unrealistic) and she captured all of the joy of our wedding day! During our photographer search, Noelle was the most down-to-earth and personable photographers that we met with. Her pricing was also very clear and easy to understand. There wasn’t the “you have to buy each individual picture”, “the album is $X hundreds more”, “I don’t take a shot list”, “I will only photoshop X number”. Photographing weddings means quite obviously more to her than making money. Then there was the day of… We truly felt like our best friend was taking our picture that day. She made us feel so comfortable and it shows in our pictures (lots of kissing and smiling!)! She also stayed THE ENTIRE TIME, even after we extended it an hour, at no extra cost (what a trooper)! The wedding video she creates for you after your wedding is one of the most unique things we saw from a photographer in our search and avoided us spending thousands on a videographer. It’s the perfect snapshot of our day and has me crying (happy tears of course) every time. Thank you, Noelle! Not only do I have amazing photographs to remember my day, but I also have an incredible new friend and am lucky to have met you!

I have COUNTLESS comments on how amazing Noelle was at my wedding. We interviewed other photographers and none compared. Thank you for your amazing professionalism and creative eye! You truly capture the most amazing moments! We are so happy to have you as our photographer and we were so comfortable having you there! AMAZING JOB, really and truly!
Noelle is a total professional with an excellent wedding package. I highly recommend you check out her packages when considering your photographers. During both our engagement pictures shoot and our wedding day Noelle was very dedicated in ensuring she had full coverage. She went out of her way to capture the unique details without being intrusive. Her picture and video selections in our amazing wedding day montage showcased what truly sets her apart: her ability to capture the special moments throughout the day. The montage was a perfect reflection of the spirit of our special day and we’re fortunate that Noelle was there to photograph it!
I cannot say enough about the beautiful pictures she took of our wedding day. Noelle is incredibly talented! The video she created for us we will treasure forever. it captured so much emotion from the day! Everyone who has seen the pictures she took have been blown away. Noelle is so sweet and easy to work with. I would recommend her in a heartbeat. In fact, one of the engaged couples at our wedding decided to book her based on the photos they saw. As the bride, the wedding day is so busy it’s hard to everywhere at once- Noelle captured so many special moments I was able to experience parts of the wedding I never would have otherwise. I would recommend Noelle without hesitation. She is amazing!
Noelle did the photographs for my wedding on September 6th, 2016. She was extremely professional and great to work with. She showed up on time and got right to work capturing the moments while I was getting ready with my bridesmaids. Those are some of my favourite photos. She also then travelled to another location to take photos of my husband and his group at a local bar before heading back to do photos with myself and my family. We chose not to have a first look, so we had to do a lot of our photos during the cocktail hour.
Despite the tight timing, Noelle delivered really fantastic photos of us on the beach as well as fitting in family formals. The candid shots she got of the reception and speeches are also some of my favourite photos.
Noelle even put together a photo montage of our photos with audio from the ceremony and the speeches that we were able to share with our family and friends within a couple weeks of the wedding. I will always treasure that photo montage. It really captured the spirit of the day and still makes me tear up every time I watch it.
She was great value for money, and even included a short engagement session which we enjoy as well. I would highly recommend Noelle as a candidate for your wedding.
Noelle was perfect for our wedding. We had rain delays and weather issues, but she adjusted her plan and still took many amazing pictures of our family and friends just enjoying themselves at our event. She also had some very well thought out poses and vignettes ready for our own personable photos as well.
I highly recommend this very talented photographer for really any event. She took great pictures of children, objects, our animals as well as our friends and family. Yes Yes Yes.
Noelle is a true professional, her ability and effort level are remarkable. She was able to capture the very best moments of our wedding celebration and present us a video we treasure. Noelle went above and beyond her obligation. We’re so happy to have shared our day with her.
Noelle was awesome! I hired her to take pictures of my proposal which couldn’t have gone better. She’s a real professional, and the pictures turned out great. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a good photographer in the Chicago area.
We had Noelle do our engagement photos this fall and she was absolutely fantastic to work with!! Her work is amazing, I fell in love as soon as I saw her portfolio online! She is so easy to get along with and she had us laughing and having fun with each other from the beginning. If our wedding was going to be in Chicago I would have LOVED to have her do it! It was a pleasure working with Noelle and we highly recommend her! 🙂
Noelle is the most talented, personable, and absolute sweetest photographer you could ever wish for in over 100 years! My fiance and I decided to have an intimate wedding in downtown Chicago with our immediate families and closest friends. We knew early on that we wanted the “photojournalistic” style as opposed to the usual posed wedding shots that we’re accustomed to seeing. Noelle delivered our expectations x 10 and we’re both so grateful that we found her. She’s easygoing, funny, and also a beautiful person both inside and out. If gorgeous and natural photos are what you’re after for your wedding or special occasion then look no further!
Here photos are beautiful! She is very nice, professional, and insightful which makes you feel confident and comfortable working with her. She gives you greats suggestions as she is the professional but lets you put your input and suggestions. So hire her she’s fantastic!
My husband and I used Noelle recently for a pregnancy reveal shoot, and we are beyond happy with the outcome. The photos are gorgeous, the price was very reasonable, and scheduling/re-scheduling (due to inclement weather) was easy. Noelle was on-time, professional and willing to go with all my silly ideas. I would 100 percent recommend Noelle Adams Photography. You will not be disappointed.
Noelle did such a great job on our engagement photos. She takes the time to listen to what you want and delivers flawlessly. She’s also a lot of fun to work with! I highly recommend her.
Noelle is married to one of my husbands closest friends…
She deserves every part of these five stars, she was profession

Noelle is truly as good as it gets. She was such a huge part of our wedding day and her skills are unreal. Noelle is great to work with, she’s flexible and puts you right at ease when taking photos. We had such a great time taking photos day-of, it ended up being one of my favorites parts of the wedding and a huge part of that was Noelle. She has made us an incredible video and we are already so excited to see the full gallery. If you are getting married in Chicago or the surrounding areas – Noelle is a must-book!

Noelle is the best! She was a joy to work with from when we first met her until the day we received our pictures. She is very passionate about photography and it shows through in her work. The video that Noelle put together was stunning. We had so many compliments and a lot of people said they cried 🙂 Engagement pictures were a blast and a great way for Noelle to get to know us and us to get to know Noelle. We would absolutely recommend Noelle!

The Knot Review
My wife and I chose Noelle for our February wedding and could not be happier! After talking to a few other photographers, we got the sense that Noelle was more personable and excited to work with us than the others. Working with her during the wedding day and seeing the final product only solidified our initial hunch. Not only were the photos phenomenal, but the video she put together for us was also fantastic. Pretty sure it brought tears to the eyes of quite a few family members. We needed to put our wedding together in a three-month timeframe, and honestly could not have done it without Noelle’s help. She was able to meet with us, set a wedding day schedule, and pick out some locations for our photos all within a week’s time. On our wedding day, she definitely went above and beyond our expectations. She came with a plan, and even scoped out our hotel for some cool locations to shoot. She also served as the calming presence my wife needed after a makeup fiasco. We are very happy with the experience we had with working with Noelle, not to mention the excellent photos. If you’re looking for a quality wedding photographer that is truly enthusiastic about your big day, look no further.
Writing about Noelle’s talents as a photographer would be a waste of time – just look at her portfolio online; her fantastic work speaks for itself.
What I can tell you is that our experience with Noelle as our wedding photographer was better that we could have possibly hoped for. During our first skype conversation with her, we remarked on a great painting behind her and she said “Thank you, I painted that!”, so we knew she had a creative spirit, but over the entire process she brought a much needed warm, friendly, and fun attitude for the stressful process of planning a wedding. Always listening to our thoughts and conscious of the tone we wanted to set, she was full of ideas and suggestions without ever being pushy or intrusive. During the day of, she was the best kind of creative: had a plan of places to go and poses to make, but we all ran with whatever inspired us in the moment, and some of our best photos were taken in bouts of spontaneity. Just from a personal standpoint, she was an absolute delight to work with. The kind of person you wish you were friends with outside of a professional setting, but being so lovely they probably have too many friends already.
She also deserves a gold star in the “above and beyond” category. Compared to a lot of other photographers, she is extremely affordable, and earns every penny. She spent way more time and took way more photos for our ceremony than we were expecting, to the point that we were concerned she was overworking herself! An absolute juggernaut, she was with us the entire day and never seemed to lose her spirit or enthusiasm. I would say that dollar for dollar, Noelle is an excellent photographer, but that would only be highlighting her fantastic pricing and doing a disservice to her craft. Noelle is simply an excellent photographer.
Noelle was the photographer for our January 2016 wedding. She also did our engagement photos back in Fall 2015. I found Noelle after searching through many wedding photographers online. I looked through her pictures online and thought she had a great style. We met with her before booking and instantly felt comfortable with her. Noelle is extremely professional but also very friendly. We booked her after meeting with her, reviewing a contract and looking through some more of her work.
For our engagement pictures, she did a great job suggesting the time of day to shoot and what type of outfits to wear. We suggested a few locations for pictures and she gave us her input on what she thought would work best. When we started shooting, we honestly had NO idea how to pose/smile/etc. Noelle did a great job facilitating the pictures, without making us do a bunch of forced/awkward poses. Although I will say, some of the best shots were definitely the ones were I thought we were going to look SO cheesy. Definitely trusted Noelle to get some great shots of us and loved that she provided just the right amount of direction.
On the day of the wedding, Noelle showed up ahead of schedule and was right on time with us throughout the day. You kind of barely notice she is there which was great- she was busy getting all sorts of great shots! The formal church photos turned out great and she was very patient with organizing our large families, but kept things moving along at the same time. We took some pictures outside at a local forest preserve and Noelle was definitely a champ for shooting us outside for an hour in the middle of a Chicago winter. We were all cold and anxious to get inside so Noelle moved along at a very efficient pace, making sure that we made the most of our time. And let me tell you, it was worth it. The pictures outside turned out gorgeous. Absolutely beautiful winter wedding pictures.
One thing that I didn’t realize Noelle was going to do was record our vows and the speeches at the wedding. Being able to watch those moments back after the wedding is truly invaluable. We didn’t want to do a full videographer for the wedding so this was just the perfect amount of video. It captured those really special moments that you want to remember forever.
Throughout the process, Noelle was always in constant communication with us. If i sent her an email, she would always respond within a day. I thought that her pricing was very fair and the packages she offers are great. We knew we wanted a great photographer but didn’t want to break the bank. I think as far as Chicago photographers go, she is a great bet for that. The package that we booked with Noelle included a photo album. She does all the layout work and then runs it by you for any formatting/picture changes. It was a nice touch at the end to know that I basically had a ready made album for my home. Another awesome and unique thing that Noelle does is make a video with the images from your wedding. She sent that to us about two weeks after our wedding and it was honestly the best. I’ve watched it more times than I care to admit. It’s the little things like that which put Noelle over the top.
Overall, cannot recommend Noelle enough. In fact, I already did to some friends and family. She was super great to work with and our pictures turned out absolutely amazing. We will treasure them forever.
Noelle is so professional and great at what she does! I really didn’t even notice her during my wedding (as she was taking video) which is a good thing for a busy bride, yet she got beautiful video that she was able to compile into a 5 minute video, which is what me Andy husband wanted. Me and my mother still cry every time we watch the video. My husband and I can’t wait to use you for future occasions 🙂
Noelle was fantastic! She was easy to work with throughout the entire wedding planning process. At the wedding, she was unobtrusive and quietly set to work getting the pictures she needed. She was friendly and warm, and everyone responded well to her. And then… of course, her photos. Amazing! She has a terrific eye for catching just the right moment, and her photos have a warm, vibrant quality without feeling staged or stiff. She was creative in her photographs, and we feel like our photographs are unique and special, just as we hoped our wedding would be. We are extremely happy with Noelle’s photographs and couldn’t imagine a better photographer.
My Fiancé and I chose Noelle for our engagement pictures. She was so wonderful! Very easy to work with, and the pictures turned out AMAZING! I had wanted to have three different scenes for the pictures; the city skyline, Chicago theater and the industrial look. I loved that she had taken the time to find the perfect location for our industrial theme and I couldn’t be happier with our photographer. She was able to capture such great moments of us. We are going to be using the pictures taken by Noelle for the save the dates. She was also able to create our favorite picture and make a save the date for us. She has so many great ideas, it was a pleasure to work with her. She let us be ourselves, made us feel comfortable and was able to help direct us because we are somewhat shy in front of the camera. I would defiantly recommend her for any occasion photography!! If you are looking for quality and professionalism then she is the one =)
Thank you for photographing our wedding! You worked so hard to capture the story of our day and we appreciate the extra time you spent with us. Our families loved you and asked if you’ll attend our reception next month! Guess you’re one of the family now, too!
