the experience

You're finally getting married! It's time for you to celebrate and finally start planning the wedding of your dreams. Scroll down below to see how I can help you make your wedding experience something to remember.

my unique style

Over the years, I've been trying to find my photography style which has now evolved to a mix of documentary and editorial. I knew I love the editorial style but something about photographing pure emotions is just so powerful to me. 


what you can expect

What makes me different from other photographers in the area? The creativity and effort I give out to my couples! Now is the chance to get those Instagram and Pinterest-worthy photos. With my friendors (wedding vendor friends), we come up with a vision for your engagement session. It can be anything from an editorial magazine style to a casual stroll with the Chicago skyline in the back. An engagement session can last anywhere from 2-4 hours. But you know what, it's worth it!

creative and fun!

Chances are, this is your first wedding and need a bit more guidance because you wouldn't know if the flowers would look good in pictures or if your groomsmen will be so extra during your big day. Not to worry! Since I'm basically with you for the entirety of your day, I'll be helping you keep on track and make sure you get all of the pictures you need. Think of me as your extra bridesmaid. ;)

your secret weapon

Most of my clients come to me with lots of questions about the wedding/session, what to wear and where to have their pictures taken. Well, worry no more! I have created our own magazine-style guides to answer all of your questions and even give you tips on how to be prepared for your shoot or wedding. The last thing I want is for you to be stressed out during your engagement session or wedding day. These guides are exclusive for Yasmin's couples only.

an open book

Girlfriend, just because you signed the contract and paid the retainer doesn't mean that you won't hear from me until your wedding day. Even if you don't go with me, I'd still love to be your friend who will hear your heart out. The best part about being a photographer is meeting people all the time. Some of those people turn out to be the most amazing people who has helped me become the person I am today. #foreverthankful #blessed

I wanted to make sure I had my dream team that could handle anything on my wedding day. I searched for a local photographer and could not find anyone I loved. It was 5 months before my wedding and I still did not have a photographer. After talking to Yasmin, I knew she was the perfect photographer. I wanted outdoor photos and it rained, by looking at my wedding photos you would never know that this was a back up plan. Since my wedding is now over I am able to say that I had an incredible photographer and I also made a friend for life.

"Yasmin is calm, able to handle your in-laws and so fun to be around."

megan & chris

It is obvious she is not just a big company trying to making a buck, but a small bushiness with a passion for photography who takes her work very seriously. She showed up exactly when she said she would and stayed until she was sure she had all the pictures she needed. She was very accommodating and knew exactly how to pose us, we are by no means models and pretty camera shy. She had such a quick turn around and our pictures turned out absolutely gorgeous. 

"Yasmin is so professional and genuinely cares about her work and making your day special."

nicole & jason

She made a couple who had never done anything close to a professional photo shoot feel SO comfortable and made it such a FUN experience for us! Yasmin’s attention to detail is incredible. She was in constant communication with us throughout the wedding planning process (meeting in person, Skyping, messaging, etc.).  Yasmin was always early and prepared. She did an incredible job of taking control of the large group and getting the most beautiful photos taken. The light and airiness of our pictures truly capture the feel of our wedding day. 

"I cannot thank Yasmin enough for our incredible pictures."

kelsey & kyle

Throughout our time together, meetings and photoshoots felt more like hanging out with old friends than business transactions. Yasmin were able to handle our huge crazy families and bridal party! Our photos are absolutely gorgeous and I don’t think anyone could have helped capture our love story more perfectly. Hats off to Yasmin! Cheers!

"we knew right then and there that she would be “our people.” 

allison & dale

Yasmin is an amazing photographer, she has done my maternity pictures, my sons first 48 pictures at the hospital, engagement pictures and my wedding photography as well. She is so patient with kids and so willing to help with wardrobe decisions and any other questions you may have. She's great and you won't regret hiring her to capture the most special moments in your life!!!!
