for couples who appreciate
how special true love is
Hi friends! Honestly, booking a photographer for your wedding is a really, really important decision that you shouldn’t take lightly. First and foremost, I believe that you should book a photographer who captures the kinds of images you will love. If you love the images you see on my website, that’s just one reason why you should book with me. Another reason? I can achieve great results consistently, not every now and then. When life’s biggest moments are unfolding, it is worth trusting me to document them :)

Most of the people feel awkward in front of the camera. I will guide you throughout the entire process. I will help with WHERE TO PUT YOUR HANDS?! When I show the pictures of themselves to my couples they can hardly believe how good they look in those photographs. Don’t worry, posing in a natural and flattering way is my superpower. I will make you look your very best.
Usually a photographer is either good at capturing candid photos OR posed portraits. My style is a mix of both! Depending on the part of the day I incorporate a lot of those styles. From start to finish my goal is to Authentically capturing your day as it unfolds with a little detail curation from me. That means that along the day and situations I am giving you directions to assure you are in the pest position and angle.
I fully encourage you to include your pets if possible in your wedding day. I also love to incorporate pets in any other kinds of sessions like engagement session or bridal session. Feel free to bring one or bring all!
I love to include fur children in the engagement sessions check out the blog! Even if they are a little wild & crazy I am sure we will get some great family shots! (tap the photo to see more!)
GOOD WITH KIDS
For the couples with children - I understand how significant it is to incorporate photographs of your children to your wedding day! They are just as much a part of this Big Day as you are! They will remember this day as one of the best memories of their parents. I will be there to capture all of those sweet times and include them in any way I can.
I’ve spent the last 7 years as a Chicago wedding photographer. Perfecting my editing style and consistency. I’m very particular about how my images look, especially your skin color, your dress details. I believe your dress detail should be visible, not “glowing”. I am making sure that all the colors are true to life. My style is very bright, but true to color with shadows maintain their integrity (i.e. black suits should stay black, not grey!)
I shot my first solo wedding in 2014. Since then I have photographed over 250 wedding days and I can say that I have SEEN IT ALL. Every lighting scenario, every time constraint, weather conditions, family members dynamics; the list goes on. I have truly learned (hands on) how to turn “lemons into lemonade” with every twist and turn that unexpectedly happens on wedding day. Which also makes me a professional dress - bustler & boutonniere pinner I can say that I am pretty much a bridesmaid with a camera :)
THE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING
I have received over dozens glowing reviews on Google, The Knot and Wedding Wire. I have won The Knot “Best of Weddings” You can read them on my page at Theknot.com or go to instagram at @bozenavoytkophotography and read some of my favorite reviews from my Chicago wedding couples in my “reviews” story highlight to put a face with a name.

Bozena was amazing. I am so happy that we found her. She is possibly the sweetest person in the world. We met for coffee to talk about our wedding and we really loved her right from the start. She is very responsive to emails, phone calls and text. She made us feel so at ease during the photo shoots. Her work is SO LOVELY, she has a wonderful eye for natural light and those perfect moments. There was not one photo that she took that I did not love. Having been a wedding photographer I know how tough it is to make people look natural and Bozena does it with natural ease. She even made my wonderfully awkward engineer husband look like a natural model! I can not say enough wonderful things about her, she is a gem and such a great professional.
Bozena was the perfect addition to the perfect day, we were thrilled!
BOZENA WAS THE PERFECT ADDITION TO THE PERFECT DAY. WE WERE THRILLED

I got married last September and Bozena did an incredible job capturing all of the details and special moments of my special day. She takes such beautiful pictures. We also took engagement photos and every single one was amazing! She was so friendly and accommodating as well. Not to mention, I got a sneak peak in 5 days and all of my photos within 3 weeks! HIGHLY recommend!
We didn't know that we could love having our photos taken!

Bozena is amazing! She is super personable, professional, and very well organized. The pictures are AMAZING! And that's just the previews! She captured so many special moments. We can't wait to see the rest. Thank you, Bozena, you captured our special day so beautifully without being pushy or overbearing (like we've heard about other photographers)! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
I could never have dreamed of a better, more magical experience!
