We are so lucky to have found Noelle as our wedding photographer! After looking through countless galleries of Chicago-area photographers online, I was most drawn to Noelle’s portfolio because her work seemed to capture real moments and emotions – it’s not overly posed & cheesy, and it doesn’t try too hard to be artsy. We met up with her and she was absolutely lovely in-person, clearly so passionate about her work, and the way she described her style was just what we were looking for. She was the only photographer we met with, and after that meeting we had no reason to explore anyone else. From there, Noelle did an absolutely amazing job throughout the entire wedding planning process. Our engagement photo shoot was FUN and we ended up with so many amazing photos… Read More

If you are thinking about reaching out to Noelle, do not hesitate, do it now. We could not have asked for a more professional, talented, accommodating, approachable photographer than Noelle. We took photos in downtown Chicago in what we were expecting to be warm(ish) spring day. Boy were we wrong! It was in the 30’s with strong wind. Yet, there we were, in our spring attire trying to take engagement photos. Noelle did an amazing job navigating us quickly and efficiently in and out of buildings to her favorite spots to stay as warm as possible but also get some great shots! The best compliment we received on one of our engagement photos was from a lady who said: “I thought that photo was a magazine cover.” It is a true testament to Noelle’s beautiful, timeless style (and my beautiful fiancee). If all businesses ran like Noelle’s, the world would be a much better place.

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 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. Read Full Review
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. Read full review
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!

Noelle is awesome! Her photographs are gorgeous and is what ultimately drew us to her. It is very obvious how passionate she was about being a wedding photographer. We learned about her through a friend and then got to see her in action at that friends wedding. She managed to capture all the moments without being in the way or making her presence super obvious. She offered suggestions but also listened and asked a lot of questions to make sure she knew what we wanted. What sold us on Noelle is that she includes a video of the speeches and ceremony. This was crucial for us since we wanted a videographer for those parts of the wedding, but did not want to pay for a videographer. We would highly recommend Noelle and really enjoyed working with her!

Noelle was the photographer for my husband’s best friend’s wedding and we were obsessed with the photos. After meeting in person with Noelle, we were positive we wanted to work with her for ours. Not only is her work INCREDIBLE, she is very personable, funny, and professional. We liked having the engagement shoot so we could get used to being photographed and also got comfortable with Noelle. Noelle creates a unique wedding “trailer” with shots from the wedding and clips from the toasts and speeches that she has available a week or two after the wedding as a teaser and reminder of how awesome the wedding was and what we could anticipate from her printed work. We received a photo album that is gorgeous and everyone who saw our prints raved about how perfect they look. Her photojournalistic style captured our day as a story. You will be 110% pleased with Noelle with her creativity and artistry but also her easy going personality. Thank you Noelle!!!

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!

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. Read Full Review
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. 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. Read full review
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. Read full review
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.
