brides and grooms to be

You’re engaged! So begins a new and exciting chapter in your love story. I am so excited to partner with you on this journey. I love connecting with my couples on a personal level, becoming a friend and ally throughout the planning process. I love hearing how you first met, the proposal story, and all your plans for the first day of forever with your loved one. I look forward to celebrating with you and capturing all your special moments throughout your big day! It is an honor to be included in this precious and life-changing experience. I hope you feel valued and cared for from our very first conversation.

Wedding Photography

Our Process

Deeply personalized service is the backbone of each wedding I document. To provide the best possible experience for my couples, I accept a limited number of weddings each year. I believe it is important for us to genuinely connect and understand what is most important to you and your special someone on your wedding day.

I split my time serving the Chicago and Milwaukee metropolitan areas. I am also available to shoot domestic and international destination weddings, so please reach out no matter your location! You may connect with me through the contact tab, or by email at joshua@joshuaharrison.photography. I look forward to serving you!

01. Getting to know you...

I believe in building relationships with my clients. My greatest priority throughout the consultation and planning process is to get to know you and what's most important on your wedding day. Together, we will explore the elements of your love story and make a plan to preserve and highlight those details.

02. Engagement Session

I encourage my couples to include an engagement session in their collection, as it’s the best way for you to experience and understand the photography process! This is our opportunity to get to know each other, learn how we work together, and have fun before your big day arrives. Don't worry, I'll coach you through everything using a low-stress system of cues and prompts. Your only job is to relax, have fun, and love each other.

03. Getting Ready

I am committed to helping you make your wedding day a success by offering vendor recommendations, coordinating timelines with your wedding planner or venue manager, providing planning suggestions, and more. When we are a few weeks out, we'll get together by phone or Zoom to finalize your wedding day timeline and work through any last-minute questions. That way, you can wake up happy and excited on the first day of forever with your love!

04. Celebrating your love

When your big day arrives, my team will be there to capture every moment in as fun, easy, and stress-free a manner as possible. You can expect your finished wedding gallery three to five weeks later. After accessing your beautifully displayed online gallery, you can download, print, and share images with friends and family. If you choose a wedding package with an heirloom album, we will begin the design process after you receive your gallery. We will partner with a professional designer to choose the perfect cover, create beautiful spreads, and finalize details before it’s printed and delivered to you!

Wedding Albums

Your first family heirloom

Your vows, first kiss, first dance, and every special little moment in between, preserved in the images we create together… An heirloom album is the perfect way to preserve and display those memories. Each album is professionally-designed and tailored to the unique story of your wedding celebration. Bound using time-honored techniques, each album features lay-flat spreads printed on ultra-thick, archival quality paper for seamless impact, for today and for years to come. Various leather or linen covers and foil imprints are available to make your heirloom wedding album truly yours.

I only offer the highest quality albums possible because your memories deserve to be treasured and passed on for generations to come. This is why every wedding day collection includes a custom heirloom album alongside your digital files so you can cherish and share your love story forever.

Happy is the man who finds a true friend, and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife.

— Franz Schubert

Frequently Asked Questions

Telling love stories is my passion, and I am honored to be considered as your wedding photographer. Every wedding is unique, and it is my goal to provide my couples with deeply personalized fine art wedding photography services. I make sure to cover all of the basic questions most brides and grooms have as a part of my consultation process. Below are some frequently asked questions to help you understand how I partner with each and every one of my couples.


• How long have you been a photographer?

I have been documenting love stories since 2015!

• We are getting married outside of the Chicago/Milwaukee metro areas. Do you travel?

Yes! I travel all over Illinois and Wisconsin to serve my couples, as well as places further afield.

If you're planning a domestic or international destination wedding, I am ready and able to travel!

• Do you have a second shooter?

Yes! If you choose a wedding collection that includes a second professional photographer, my exclusive associate photographer, Stacy, will partner with me to serve you in telling the story of your big day.

• What kind of gear do you use?

I shoot with modern Nikon camera bodies and a variety of modern and vintage lenses. All of my equipment is professional quality to ensure you receive the best possible images.

• Do you have insurance?

Yes! I carry professional liability insurance that covers me, my team, you as the client, and my gear. I am happy to provide proof of coverage to you or a venue upon request. My insurance coverage is provided by Lyndon Southern.

• How many images may we expect to receive, and when will we get them?

Every wedding varies, but I typically deliver 600-1,000 images in a secure online gallery for you to download, print, and share to your heart's content. Every image I deliver is professionally edited using a bespoke digital darkroom process to replicate the timeless colors and aesthetics of real film.

I deliver a few sneak peek images a few days after each wedding I photograph, and the full wedding gallery follows 3-5 weeks later. (Sometimes sooner!)

• How do we book your services?

To secure my services for your wedding, I require a signed contract and a paid deposit. I am pleased to offer a variety of payment plans to suit my clients' needs and budgets.

• Can we order prints and albums?

Yes! You can order professional-grade prints from my favorite commercial lab straight from your gallery.

I also offer custom heirloom albums with a variety of linen and leather binding options. Please contact me for details.
