I'M A STORYTELLER, CAPTURING YOUR LOVE STORY
I believe in capturing your love story, your way. I love getting to know you, your friends and family and seeing your genuine connection.
I capture love stories using a docu-journalistic style of photography, which means that I don’t focus on a checklist of essential shots. Instead, I move around your wedding unobtrusively, recording the day as it unfolds and using natural light to guide my work.

TARRIELL & ROBERT
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
I lean towards a docu-journalistic style, which means that I don’t focus too ardently on a ‘checklist of essential shots’, rather I move around your wedding unobtrusively, recording the day as it unfolds. I’ll always try to use natural light wherever possible.
ALL WEDDING COLLECTIONS INCLUDES ENGAGEMENT SESSION
Engagement sessions are the perfect way to capture your love in a fun yet intimate way - and they make for great practice sessions before your wedding day! Each wedding package I offer includes an engagement session for this very reason. Engagement sessions are fun, laid-back, and allow us to get to know each other before your big day!
Balmin creates natural relationships with his couples and is definitely our top chicago wedding photographer here..
