After seven years as a photographer, I’ve learned to spot a potential problem before it affects your big day - keeping you stress-free on the best day of your life. From a complimentary engagement session (great for announcements or holiday cards) to your edited photos back in just few weeks (not months!) - I’m here to make this day an extra special experience for you and your loved ones. Love is captivating: I’m driven by it and photography is what allows me to capture some of life’s most celebrated moments. Photographed memories are priceless. I strive to tell a story with my images, capturing organic moments that naturally unfold, resulting in stunning imagery. I want my photos to evoke beauty and joy. I would consider it an honor to document your season of love, growth and new beginnings.

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 will still get all the quirky moments that make your day so unique and you. I am assuring that you and your loved ones look your best.
PREPARED FOR...A LOT OF STUFF
Weddings are very unpredictable and usually don’t go hundred percent as planned. I am prepared for any weather conditions with umbrellas and backup gear.
Prepared for.. a lot of stuff
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!

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.
Good with kids
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
THE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING

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.
