Editor’s Note: for this Best Wedding Photographers in Chicago Spotlight, we had the pleasure of interviewing Andre, from Andre LaCour Photography.
Where have you been featured?
Nearly all the big publications in Chicago- Modern Luxury, Wedding Guide, Chicago Style etc. I had a feature in the trade magazine, Rangefinder. Most important to me though, is being on the walls of homes all over the country and parts of the world.
Why do couples love working with you?
We make the experience fun and painless. We realize the day is about them and not us. We’ll do anything we can to make their day run smoothly. Our experience allows us to capture beautiful images even when the circumstances are less than ideal.
What do you love most about being a wedding photographer?
It’s magical to be a part of our client’s special day and to provide them with beautiful memories- to show them how beautiful their lives are in images. It’s a bond that lasts forever through the prints and albums that their children will one day cherish.
How did you get started?
I had a high school photography class and the instructor saw potential in me and mentored me into what became my career. I have great respect for teachers.
What 3 words best describe your wedding photography style?
Sophisticated, emotional, artistic.
What budget range do you cater to?
We do a wide range of events, from 2hr for a couple who eloped to Chicago to 16hr for 1,000 guests. The common theme among our clients is that they appreciate fine photography. We can accommodate most budgets, but most of our clients are having beautiful events, typically downtown and North Shore.
Honestly, it does not get any better than Andre LaCour Photography. When I started looking for a photographer for our wedding, I looked at Chicago Magazine. Literally every photo I cut out was that of Andre LaCour Photography. These are not just photos, these are heirlooms for generations of your family to come. Andre and Maria captured our Greek wedding and the symbolism behind it with generations of tradition while at the same time incorporating personality, class, and style to every moment. I will 100% be using Andre LaCour Photography for future events, and singing his praises not only in Chicago but nationwide. Choose this team. You will not regret it. Thank you LaCour team!
Andre was professional, thoughtful and dedicated from the beginning. Leading up to our wedding, Andre was sure to communicate regularly and made us feel at ease as the day approached. After getting to know him during our engagement shoot, we confirmed that it was a great match! Andre was having so much fun with us during our engagement shoot that he and his assistant decided to take us to additional locations. They continued to think outside the box and maneuver around the city in order to capture the best possible photo! At our wedding, he was nothing short of patient and efficient. With plenty of assistant photographers, they were able to capture our special day from different angles and perspectives. Andre Lacour is one of the best in the industry!
They did an amazing job on my wedding and everyone LOVES my pictures. Maria was awesome to work with. She was creative, professional, and helped to make my wedding everything I dreamed it to be.
