Natural & Studio light are both beautiful. They should both be understood and mastered. When you bring these styles together, you create magic. Everything from soft-white portraits to dramatic sunsets. When you understand lighting, no situation is a "poor" lighting situation.

I love my studio. It inspires me every time I walk inside. It is my home away from home. Let's have a conversation over coffee or tea. We can chat about your wedding and make sure we are a perfect fit.

Chris and Jessica are so much more than your run of the mill wedding photographer talent. They become your family while capturing the moments you will treasure for a lifetime. Their creativity and ability to catch the little moments is beyond compare. Our journey with them began in 2014 for an engagement session, and has transitioned to wedding photos, newborn shoots, and annual family (of 5) sessions. Our family has grown along with their business but they still provide the same caring attention to detail and beautiful art year after year. I’m so grateful we hired them so many years ago! And you will be too!

I recommend Chris and Jessica to anyone looking to be a product of timeless and breathtaking photos. I requested that my fiancé and I had our engagement session as the sun rose on our four year anniversary. Without hesitation, Chris and Jessica agreed, and now we have photos to drool over for a lifetime. The best part? This is just the beginning of our work with them. It truly would have been a mistake if we did not choose Chris and Jessica. Their amazing reviews are not an exaggeration- they are THE REAL DEAL for expert photography in the state of Illinois. ❤️

Taylor & Nikoli

Chris is very personable and professional. I loved that he utilized his own artistic creativity, yet it was still very important to him that our own "vision" for our photos was attained. Loved working with him!

Kristi Lecocq

I am in awe of the artwork Chris and Jessica create. They go above and beyond the call of a photographer and have an eye for detail that most miss. My wedding was 5/27 and the pictures I have seen are magnificent. There were several ups and downs with my day but in the midst of the chaos they found beauty. When I received the devastating news of my grandpa not being in attendance they did not hesitate to stop what they were doing and make sure I was ok. I could say thank you every day for the rest of my life and it wouldn't begin to touch the amount of gratitude I have for Chris and Jessica. Thank you both so much for everything.

Chris was fantastic and professional from beginning to end. He is very thoughtful and personal in his approach. He created a very relaxed environment--especially for someone who is not used to having photos taken. He helped with everything from clothing choices to hair static. I thought his prices were reasonable. I will definitely use him again.

Betsy Londrigan

My fiance and I had such an amazing experience with Chris Withers Photography for our engagement photos. Both Chris and his wife Jessica went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect for our session. They even spent a few hours out in the freezing cold so that we could have the winter pictures that we wanted! Jessica literally gave me the gloves off of her hands to help keep mine warm! Of course they turned out AMAZING! We LOVE Chris' artistic touches that he puts into his work. We were hesitant about the price at first but Chris Withers Photography is definitely worth every penny! We are SO excited to see what magic they will work on our wedding day!!!

Brittany Beler

Wow wow wow!!!!!! We are so blown away on how amazing each and every moment you captured was!!! Thank you guys so much I can’t even begin to tell you how happy we are with the outcome! THANK YOU!!!! 

Molly Henry

My fiancé and I are not the most comfortable in front of the camera, so of course we went into our engagement shoot a little nervous. The second we walked into the studio with Chris and Jessica they made us feel at home and my nerves instantly disappeared. Chris is not just a photographer, he is an artist with a passion for photography that I’ve never seen before. We had the best time and I’m telling every bride out there looking for a photographer for their wedding.. stop now. You have found him!
