A True Chicago Style Photo Shoot

Chicago, United States

Check local COVID-19 restrictions before booking

Experience hosted by Elliette

90 mins
Up to 6 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

My favorite style to shoot is lifestyle photography. I want you to feel as comfortable as possible in front of my camera and in my city. I use prompts to help create some great lifestyle posed photos, (ex: tuck your hair behind your ear and give me a big fake laugh). It may seem silly or feel ridiculous but believe me it creates great photos!

Our experience will begin meeting up at Buckingham Fountain and we will make our way to some of Chicago's greatest locations:
-Grant Park
-Millennium Park
-The Bean
-Chicago River
-Chicago Theater.

You'll receive your (15-20) edited images within 7-10 of the shoot via email. Additional images may be purchased directly through me for $2-5 each.

If you are looking for a date & time that is not available please DM me!
Other things to note
This type of photo shoot requires a lot of walking. The average amount of walking to be expected is 3 miles, please come prepared. I suggest bringing water along. Also, this experience is best for couples, but I am more than willing to accommodate families of 4.

I am a Chicago native and a portrait photographer. I recently went full-time with my photography business but I began photographing 4 years ago, but I've been in front of the camera long before that. I know exactly how nerve-racking being in front of a camera be. I will make sure you are comfortable in front of my camera all while enjoying our beautiful city so you have great images to document your trip!

During our trip to Chicago, we gave our 15-year-old daughter a photo shoot in the city. She is extremely particular about style and spent a lot of time selecting the right photographer. Elliette was definitely the right choice!!! She was wonderful at interpreting exactly what our daughter wanted and blending the urban backdrop with close-up shots. She had great ideas of her own but was also very receptive to our daughter's ideas and was happy to incorporate things like getting the Joffrey Ballet as a backdrop for a ballet pose. Elliette was friendly and personable as well as a great photographer.

Our private photo shoot with Elliette was a wonderful experience. We felt like celebrities having our photos taken all around the downtown area. Our final product is frame ready photographs. She went out of her way to make it a special experience and to take us to interesting locations for our photos. It was definitely more than we expected, and we highly recommend the photoshoot experience with Elliette.

Booking Ellie was a GREAT decision! My friend and I live in different states (Michigan and Massachusetts) and decided to do a photo session together on a trip to Chicago. Ellie made contact with the both of us hours after we booked, asking if we had any special plans in mind. When we met Ellie, everything went so smoothly, and we connected with her really well. She helped us stage ideas for poses throughout the shoot, and we shared stories about different trips we’ve taken/things we’ve done. All of the photos turned out so nicely and she made it extremely easy for us to access them via pixieset. If you’re thinking of booking Ellie for a simple best friends shoot, engagement photos, or anything else, you should definitely do it. Worth every penny!
