Elegant & authentic wedding photography for timeless couples


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.

Getting to know you...

I believe in forging 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.

The engagement session

I highly encourage my couples to include an engagement session in their package; 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.

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 Skype 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!

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!

Heirloom Albums

Wedding albums are your very 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 created by a professional designer and approved by you. 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 linen covers and foil imprints are available to make your heirloom wedding album truly yours.

A note to couples...

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 I look forward to hearing from you!

Q & A

Are your packages customizable?

Yes! You can add additional shooting time, a third photographer, and alternate albums.

Will we receive digital copies of our photographs?

Yes. All photo packages include JPEG files optimized for print and for use on social media and email platforms. All original camera RAW files remain the property of Joshua Harrison Photography.

How many images may we expect to receive?

This is just an estimate, as every wedding varies, but you can reasonably expect 600-800 beautifully edited photos.

How do we book your services for our wedding?

If you’d like to secure my services for your wedding day, all you need to do is fill and sign a contract and return it to me via DocHub. Along with the contract, a 50% deposit is required to book the date. I typically send clients a link to securely pay this online.

Can we have all the photos you take?

No. I am very selective in the images I take and present - that’s part of what defines my style. One reason you’re hiring me is to select the best of the best images from your day.

When will we receive our images?

All images from your wedding will be ready for viewing, downloading, and printing between 3-5 weeks later. (Usually sooner!)

Do you offer a web gallery for friends and family to view our images?

Yes! Every package I offer includes a secure web gallery for you, your family, and your friends to view images, download, and order prints.

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