Colleen and Matt were married on 12-28-19, They wrote this 5-star tesimonial on The Knot on 1-18-20 "Jason was our wedding photographer, and he was amazing. Our wedding was the weekend after Christmas and Jason called on Christmas Eve to make sure we had all of our questions answered and so he knew what we wanted. He was very energetic and got amazing pictures. I would highly recommend this company and photographer! We already got our pictures back. They are stunning!"
Bridget and Nate were married 12-14-19, They wrote this note on The Knot 12-30-19 "We were fortunate enough to find Studio One on an internet search. After reading their reviews I was excited to see how things went. I can honestly say that all of their highly rated reviews were accurate. When we met with Joe he was very easy to talk to and helped us through the process as well as offering amazing deals. We did the 12 hour package and it was great! Our photographer was as Jason and he was phenomenal!!! I don’t give a lot of reviews but I felt it wouldn’t be unfair not to with how great Jason was. We had several kids and dogs at the house that the bridal party was ready at and Jason totally embraced it. He let the kids help him take pictures and was awesome with them! We wanted our dog in pictures (she can be very shy of new people) and he took the time to have her warm up to him so pictures with her were possible. Thank you Jason! Needless to say I would definitely recommend Studio One, our pictures turned out amazing and I still have family telling me how awesome Jason was!"
Ashley and Bill were married on 11-30-19, They just wrote this review on The Knot 12-7-19 " Joe did our engagement photos in the dead of winter in Chicago without complaint and they are amazing. Jason came and photographed me and my bridesmaids getting ready and was a trooper - 7 women in one hotel room getting ready for a wedding is not easy to deal with! He and Joe teamed up and found us the PERFECT location for photos when the weather turned out not so great and our outdoor plans were ruined. The experience was amazing and they did everything we asked without fail. THANK YOU BOTH for making our day so perfect and capturing our love.
Nicole and Chris were married on 9-27-19. They just wrote on our Facebook Page and The Knot on 12-2-19 "If I could give a Studio One and their staff 10 stars I would! From the first meeting with Joe we knew we found the perfect company for our wedding. Joe is so friendly, easy going, honest and organized and made everything so simple. He told us that our personalities would match well with a photographer named Jason. After meeting him I knew that was the best decision we've made for our wedding. Jason is beyond wonderful and literally made our wedding so memorable. We got married in a barn during a complete downpour... And Jason was out there in the rain taking photos of the barn and everything else. He was so creative and easy to work with that the rain became a perfect backdrop for the photos. He worked so well with our huge bridal party and all the kids. He's simply amazing and our photos are proof of the happiness we felt that day. Thank you Jason, Joe, Tony and Kenneth for all your hard work. We are so happy with your work and would recommend Studio One to anyone getting married. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Chris and Nicole (married 9.27.19)

We had the pleasure of working with Jason, who was by far the BEST! He was incredibly easy to work with, energetic, made taking tons of photos easy and he came prepared! He had a sewing kit, scissors, pretty much any little thing we forgot about he had. I would highly recommend Studio One and specifically Jason, they all were so nice, helpful and affordable. We got our pictures back quickly and I could not be happier with how they turned out!"

"Jason, our photographer, was so incredible! He had a lot of energy and captured every moment-private and public, on our day. He even captured the rainbow that appeared following the rainfall before our ceremony. My husband and I have incredible memories to look back on thanks to his work and thoughtfulness. Joe at Studio One was great to work with and his company offered the best rates, with exceptional work!
Emila and Matt were married 3-2-19. They wrote this 5-star review on The Knot on 8-4-19
"We could not be happier with our experience with Studio One. Our photographer was Jason, and he is AMAZING - he was so energetic, and his positive, relaxed attitude was truly welcomed and appreciated throughout the day. It helped us stay positive and relaxed, especially pre-ceremony and while riding around downtown for pictures between the ceremony and reception. We received multiple comments from friends and the bridal party on his awesomeness. We are thrilled with how our photographs came out, and we received them more quickly than expected. Both Jason and Joe understood what we were going for - we were clear that we wanted classic photos, with “no cheese” - and they made it happen. From the start, Joe made everything about the process and the contracts very clear and straightforward. The prices were very reasonable, and there were no hidden costs or fees. The reminder emails made it easy for us to keep track of and be reminded of the steps. Joe also took beautiful engagement photos for us at the Naperville riverwalk, even accommodating our request for a session at Christmastime that would capture all the lights and decorations. It was a fun experience that helped us prepare for the big day, and we were very happy with the photos."
Alexandra and Ty were married on 6-21-19, The just wrote this 5-star review on The Knot. Their Sunset photo is awesome! " Our photographer, Jason, was absolutely amazing to work with! He was so friendly and full of energy and led us to some truly amazing photos. He was extremely creative and really composed some beautiful photos. We got some amazing sunset shots that look straight from a magazine. He was exactly what we needed from a photographer. And the owner, Joe, was extremely easy to talk to and helped us pick a great package. He got us the finished photos in just a couple of weeks after our wedding and let us download every single one. The final photos looked absolutely perfect. Could not be any happier with our choice!"

"Our photographer Jason was amazing. He was the photographer at my sister's wedding 3 years prior and I knew I wanted him to be our photographer as well. His energy was amazing, from the first second he pumped up the excitement and used his energy to make all of us relaxed and in a great mood the whole day. He was open to different types of photos and came up with unique ways to use elements at our disposal. I love all the pictures and would highly recommend him!"
Sarah and Stephen were married on 5-5-19, Sarah just wrote this on the Wedding Wire 6-12-19
"We had Jason from Studio One as our photographer for our wedding and he was amazing. He met us at my parents' house in the morning to get pictures of us getting our hair/makeup done as well as photos with my family. He also met up with the guys at the venue before the ceremony to grab pictures. The photos were amazing and they truly captured everything we wanted to remember about our day. They even allow you, immediate family, and the bridal party to download any and all photos they want with a password. The photos are on an easy website so others can buy prints if wanted. Jason was truly professional and our meetings to get a feel of our photography style were so helpful in letting Jason capture who we are. We couldn't have picked a better company!"

"I cannot say enough good things about our photographer Jason! He was absolutely amazing! He had so much energy throughout the whole entire day and kept things so organized and calm at the same time. He also took me aside when he first got there to check in with me which I really appreciated.
Having older siblings, this is the 4th wedding in my family and everyone just kept saying how Jason blew the rest out of the water, (that's how you know you got a good one when other people say how amazing he is!)
Also, Joe was so great at sending emails throughout the time from booking until days before the wedding, which helped keep my nerves at ease. I would 11/10 recommend Studio One Photography and if you can get Jason, you will not be disappointed!"

Jenna and Rob were married on 4-27-19. They wrote this 5 star review on 6-1-19 "When initially looking for our wedding photographer, I did quite a bit of research, including meeting with a number of different photographers prior to booking; my husband and I knew almost immediately upon meeting with Joe that we would pick Studio One. He was so kind, easy to talk to, and genuinely seemed to enjoy his career - when he showed us the beautiful work that he and his photographers did, it was really a straight-forward choice. Their pricing was not only extremely reasonable, but Joe worked to customize a package that was the best for us. There is so much to plan and think about during the wedding process, I could not have been more pleased that Joe would actually reach out to us to remind us to fill out their online form or with a wedding count down. Such a relief to not have to be chasing him for answers. We worked with Jason as our photographer and he was upbeat from the first phone call. Talking to him a few days prior made me remember that the wedding itself would be fun - it sounds silly to say, but the days leading up get so nerve racking, you kind of forget that. He was well-organized on the day, not afraid to tell everyone where to go and how to stand. He got right into the crowd during dancing and captured some truly memorable shots. It ended up snowing on our wedding day at the very end of April, but he went out in the cold, didn't care the he was getting wet, and made the unwanted weather into something special for us. Overall, fantastic company and people that I would pick again and again; no second thoughts or regrets!"

"Jason is the BEST photographer I have ever had the pleasure to work with EVER. I worked in the wedding industry for over 15 yrs, stood up in 7 weddings, and booked him for our own this past March. You will not be disappointed at all if you choose studio one and Jason. His energy and creative eye is amazing. Work turn around was extremely quick and quality was spectacular. I dont know if he would do pregnancy announcements BUT I plan to find out when we embark on that journey. Thank you SO much Jason for being the best photographer I've ever met or worked with!!!!"

"Studio One was great from the start. Joe really made us feel comfortable, he was honest and helpful and made our decision super easy! Jason, our photographer was phenomenal! He really knows how to make everyone feel comfortable and joins in on the fun. He's so quick in getting the "boring/posed" pictures out of the way so you can have fun! We got nothing but compliments about him all night and even now, weeks later, people are still talking about how awesome Jason was! We got the photos back nice and quick and they turned out amazing! I highly recommend Studio One and Jason!"

His creativity is reflected in the many photos that he arranged beautifully. Jason was all of the above - personable, punctual, and professional! Last but not least, we really appreciated his humor. Thank you Studio One Photography and Video. Keep up the GREAT work!"
Ivana and David were married on 8-18-18, They wrote this 5 star review on The Knot
"Studio One Photography and Video was a perfect choice for our wedding photos and video. Everyone here, from the owner, to the photographer, to the videographer, are beyond nice, friendly, and caring people. We met with Joe, the owner, and instantly received a warm welcome. He is such a great and funny guy. Our photographer was Jason and let me tell you, NO REGRETS. He goes out of his way to take the most breathtaking, unique, and amazing photos. We also loved him because he was so sweet, funny, and a great addition to our day. Kenneth was our videographer and was also a sweet and caring person. I would HIGHLY recommend Studio One to others for photography, simply beautiful work from the best people you could meet. Jason is the best! We will definitely choose them for our many events to come in the future."
Jessica and Nathan were married on 8-25-18. Jason and Natalie were their photographers. Here's the 5-star review they wrote on The Knot yesterday:
"We had Jason, Natalie, and Joe (videographer). We could not have been more happy with how they all did. Jason especially did an incredible job, but all three were exceptional. Jason is truly great at what he does. He was very creative for the photo shots he took, and we cannot wait to see how they turn out. But he also did a great job of keeping everyone smiling picture after picture, all throughout the day--which is something you don't think about beforehand. Jason even stayed longer than his required contract time, just to get a few more shots. Excellent pricing, and exceptional quality of photography. Jason and Natalie were the best pair of photographers we have ever worked with, and we do not say that lightly. Our videographer Joe did a solid job as well, and did not get in the way. He captured all the important moments, and was great to have for the day. We highly recommend Studio One."

Linnea and Dave were married 8-26-17. They had this to say on The Knot 11-20-17:
"We had an absolutely wonderful experience with Studio One Photography from start to finish. We felt comfortable with our plan for our wedding day immediately during our initial consultation with Joe. He helped us choose the right photographer for our needs. Jason, the photographer we chose was amazing! He was very high energy and fun with our group, and he was very creative with his shots. He even had some really cute tricks to keep the children in our wedding party from becoming bored with taking pictures. We really felt that he cared about getting the best images from our special day. Of course, the pictures all turned out great! We had a consult with Jason the week before the wedding where he evaluated our style and any special requests, and we were thrilled with the outcome! Thank you, Jason, Joe, and Studio One Photography!"

"Our photographer Jason was amazing! We could not have been happier with him. His energy level was through the roof, and he was just a very happy go lucky guy! We got married on a really hot day in September, at a venue with no ac, and outdoor pictures. He went out of his way to find shady spots for us -so we didn't melt. He stayed way later at the reception that we thought he would, and was just so energized and great the entire night! It only took about 2 and a half weeks for us to get our pictures, and they were amazing! The pricing was great too, especially in comparison to the other places we looked at. We highly recommend this company, and Jason in particular!"
Kelly and Kyle were married on 9-3-17, They wrote on The Knot 10-2-17!
For our recent wedding we visited Studio One Photography in Naperville, IL and we could not have been more pleased. With our package for a full day worth of photography for our wedding we also received a complimentary engagement photo shoot at the beautiful river walk in downtown Naperville. Joe performed the shoot himself and even was able to get our puppy to pay attention for some wonderful photos. Furthermore, I can not say enough good things about our wedding day photographer Jason! He was energetic throughout the entire day and night. He knew what photos he wanted before he even arrived to the venue. My wife and I chose not to do a first look, so after the ceremony we had to take all of our pictures together and he not only got amazing photos but also did it so quickly that we did not miss our whole cocktail hour! He was on the ball the entire night making sure we got all the various pictures we wanted with our guests, we just waived him down and he was there immediately. We just received our pictures and not only are they beautiful, but there are what seems like millions to choose from! I would highly recommend Studio One and Jason for anyone who has their wedding in the future!

"We are so happy that we chose Studio One to photograph our wedding day. We loved the family feel from our first meeting with Joe. He set us up with Jason to capture the moments of our special day. The match was perfect. I spoke with Jason the week of my event to just be sure he had all of the information necessary. He arrived on time and work extremely hard the entire night. He had an easy going personality and tons of energy throughout the night. Additionally, the online planning was easy to complete and we were provided with reminders when things needed to be filled out. I would recommend this studio and Jason in particular to anyone in need of photography services. We will definitely be using this studio in our future too!"

"We hired Jason from Studio One as our photographer for our wedding last month and he was absolutely AMAZING! He is high energy and gets super excited when he gets a good shot which then makes you and everyone else excited. He makes taking pictures fun and he gets great pictures in the process. This man is also extremely dedicated to getting the perfect shot. He was literally crawling around on the ground in a suit outside in 90 degree weather at times to make sure he got the right angle for the shot. Our bridal party loved his energy, our parents loved his dedication and hard work, and even my husband, who hates taking pictures, loved him and said he had fun doing our pictures! We had multiple family members come up to us and ask us where we found him because he was doing such a great job :) Due to my not realizing how quickly your wedding day flies by (seriously people soak it in!), I realized on the day of the wedding that I felt I had not really planned enough time to do all the bridal party photos I thought I wanted and this was my biggest concern after the wedding. Well we just got our pictures and I should've know that with Jason I had nothing to worry about! We received over 2500 pictures from our day! We didn't have a videographer at our wedding, but we really didn't need one. Looking through all the photos was like watching a video of the day and it was so cool to see pictures from parts of the day I wasn't there for (my husband getting ready, candid shots on the dance floor, etc.). I had a lot of DIY projects at my wedding and Jason made sure to capture all the hard work I had put into the decorations/details that I didn't really get to see on the day of the actual wedding. It was awesome to see that my vision for our day really came through. And, as one of my bridesmaids pointed out when I was stressed that we maybe didn't get enough bridal party pictures, you really don't want 100 pictures of the same bridal party pose. One perfect picture is all you're going to hang up in your house anyway and Jason definitely gave us that and more!!
I should also mention that Studio One was the most affordable photography studio I found and they got us all of our pictures in less than a month! One another note two things I would recommend: 1. My husband and I knew that we wouldn't get a lot of time just the two of us so we made sure to take 20 minutes after the ceremony to take a walk together and have Jason come with to take some photos. This was one of the best decisions we made. It let us take a break from the craziness of the day and focus on the two of us and we got some great pictures!
2. I asked him to take large group family photos right after the ceremony and these turned out great! Somehow everyone looks great in all of them and we have big families! It's nice to have those large family photos because it's a rare occasion where everyone you love will be in one place so take advantage
