Chicago wedding photographer Oriana Photography

Oriana is simply amazing! We are so glad we found her and very lucky to have had her photograph our wedding day.  We instantly fell in love with her enthusiasm and playful energy.  She did an incredible job of capturing all the moments of our day, and even managed to make a seriously sweaty bride look radiant.  The photos turned out better than we ever imagined and looking through them is like reliving the whole day again, from getting ready to dancing with our best friends.  And she did all of this while being just the nicest, sweetest person to be around.  Thank you for everything Oriana!” –  Adrian & Brittany

I really can’t say enough about how great our engagement portraits turned out. AND about how much fun it was to do the shoot itself. We were kind of anxious about being the center of attention, but Oriana made it an incredibly fun and relaxing afternoon. After we posted the photos on Facebook to much acclaim, friends who saw us IN PERSON took the time to say how much they reflected our personalities and individual style in a beautiful way. She really got us.” – Lindsay & Pat

Oriana was absolutely amazing to work with, and we are so thrilled with the pictures! From start to finish, Oriana was fantastic. She made sure to understand the kinds of things we liked and what we wanted, and she gave perfect suggestions for where we could go to make these things happen (on a very tight schedule!).

Oriana was professional and cheerful throughout our whole day. She was super organized and made sure people knew what to do for group shots and was fun without being bossy. Everyone immediately felt comfortable around Oriana, which made pictures much more fun and authentic. Looking through our pictures is such a wonderful way to relive the joy and love we felt on our wedding day, and we feel so lucky to have everything captured so beautifully!” – Sonia & Matt Wilson
