“Our experience with TWA was nothing short of magical. My husband and I found their website through The Knot and we instantly fell in love with the photos we saw. TWA made the process of selecting our photographer for our engagement shoot and wedding very easy. Their facility was clean, welcoming, and professional. We could not have been happier with the way our photos turned out! We just completed our order for our wedding album and we are so excited to receive it! We would highly recommend TWA.”

About Us:

Founded in 1990, TWA Photographic Artists is a family-owned and operated local small business and proud to be part of the Chicago wedding photographers community. We have been recognized by the, the worlds largest and most trusted wedding website, as part of their Best of Weddings Hall of Fame for consistently ranking in the top 5% of photographers for the last 14 years. We have also been awarded Wedding Wire’s Couple’s Choice Award every year since its inception. These are honors for which we are certainly proud. And yet, above and beyond the accolades and awards, we are most proud of the fact that so many couples have entrusted us with capturing and preserving some of their most prized memories.

What we’ve discovered through the years and what never fails to amaze us, is how unique each love story truly is. This is why we approach every wedding journey differently. Your special day deserves Chicago wedding photographers who take the time to understand what makes your union, your story one-of-a-kind.

Beginning with the engagement photos to the photo reveal, your “love story in pictures” will most definitely be the experience you imagined—and then some. Paying attention to all of the details, we capture every smile, every embrace, every special look, culminating in your very first family heirloom…your wedding album from the best Chicago wedding photographers!

Exclusive TWA Masterpiece Retouching System:

At TWA, we love what we do – making our couples incredibly happy! This not only means working to ensure we capture your magical day exactly the way you envision, but also by meticulously enhancing each photo in order to produce the most stunning prints, wall decor and albums possible. We do this by using our exclusive Masterpiece Retouching System.

The TWA Masterpiece Retouching System takes your beautiful wedding day images to an entirely different level; one that other Chicago Wedding Photographers simply don’t offer. During this 7-step process, your images are carefully enhanced by a TWA certified digital artist. First, the lighting, contrast, color balance, and tonal curve of your images is fully optimized. Imperfections are then removed, and the standout features of each image become even more prominent through our proprietary enhancements. The end result is truly stunning! Why do we dedicate so much time enhancing your images? Because we know that you will increasingly rely on your images to rebuild your memories that naturally fade with time. Simply put; the more vivid, stunning and flawless your images are, the better your memories will be later on. This is why we feel that great Chicago wedding photography increases in value and is such an important investment in yourself, your marriage and future family!

Digital files:

You get two versions of your files. The first version are rendered at media resolution specifically to make it easy for you to share your Chicago wedding photography with friends and family online. The second version are provided at high resolution once we have edited them for your album and product selections using our Masterpiece Retouching System.

We provide peace of mind:

The reality is many Chicago wedding photographers today actually have full-time jobs and Chicago wedding photography is their side hustle. Is this really what you want for your once-in-a-lifetime memories? We are an experienced wedding photography business with full-time employees, not to mention a dedicated customer service team taking care of your every need. In case of an unforeseen wedding day emergency, we have backup Chicago wedding photographers and equipment on standby. We have been in business for over 30 years, which means we are and will continue to be here for our couples every step of the way.

Money back guarantee:

Why have one money back guarantee when you can have two? Once you decide to hire us (great decision by the way) you have 45 days to cancel services and get your full retainer back. If, after the wedding, you are not thrilled with your Chicago wedding photography, you can get a refund for package you paid for.

Small, local and intimate:

Do you want to support small business in your community? TWA is a family owned small business. We support our local community everyday by putting dollars back where we earn them and employing our exceptional local talent.

A full line of the highest quality albums and home decor products:

Unfortunately, many Chicago wedding photographers tend to be of the fly-by-night variety; meaning, they shoot, send you the unedited or slightly edited digital files, and then they’re out. We understand that your relationship with your Chicago wedding photographer should be more than that. Do you really want your wedding memories to end up sitting on your hard drive where they are occasionally viewed and eventually forgotten?

Our commitment to you extends well beyond the wedding day. We provide you with the highest quality, most unique albums and products you will find. Following your special day, we offer you special pricing and incentives on all of our products—products that are expertly designed by our team and handcrafted right here in the USA. Everything is then shipped directly to you at no additional charge.
