Allusion is a Fine Art Wedding Photography studio based in Oak Brook, IL. Our images have been described as candid, emotional, magazine/artistic, romantic & airy. We love making real connections with our couples, bringing out their personalities in our portraits. Our photography evokes feelings of genuine love & affection and not some overused pose that is currently popular on Pinterest. We will create images that tell the story of your wedding day in the best way possible.
We have always been inspired by photography – a pristine type of photography that portrays style, glamour and profound experiences. Photographing a wedding is never about the process of the day – but rather appreciating the values and the new love that is before you. It truly is about capturing the passion, the feel and the first family memories that will set precedence for years to come.
For every couple we tell a story-with a family, with a setting, with what they wear, and the love they surround themselves with. We want to reflect a feeling of romance and passion with a twist of art and sophisticated fashion. Depicting memories of a picturesque estate, a lush green park, or a stylish urban train station to the newly married homes of the distinguished, iconic and creative.
There are a few factors that set Allusion Photography apart from others:
- We have been named the top wedding photography company in the United States by the very popular wedding inspiration The Knot, and Best In The Midwest from 2008-2021!
- We only shoot with professional grade Canon and Nikon camera bodies & lenses.
- Turn around time for your images are generally less than 20 days from the date of your wedding. Every single image you receive will be adjusted individually for color saturation, white balance, and sharpened for printing. Additional retouching will also be performed on an as needed/request basis.
- We are consistent in our editing & shooting style. Our photography style is clean & timeless with a touch of romance and art. We have a proven track record of outstanding customer service throughout the entire course of the studio’s history with a five star rating.
