Doug and his assistant did an amazing job capturing the feeling of the day. He added an artistic feel to the photos that were captured.

We received a photo session with Doug for our twin's first birthday. Our schedules are pretty hectic and Doug was extremely accommodating. The shoot went so well, he was amazing with our little guys. My husband and I couldn’t be happier with the photos and the overall experience. Lisa Donlan

We saw Doug's work and he was our #1 choice. Of course because he does great work we were worried about being able to afford him. We had a very non-traditional wedding and he was very flexible with our schedule and was very affordable! When we signed the contract he sent me chocolate which just put him over the top. At the wedding he was great about catching our moments and all of our weird quarks. I enjoyed having him there, he felt like just another guest and friend. He was professional when dealing with the contract and communication. He made it really easy to make payments and to view our photos once they were ready. The time it took to get photos to us on the website and in the mail was impressive, I know we aren't his only clients. Overall I would highly recommend him for any wedding and even for other occasions, he is much more than a wedding photographer!

Doug is a fantastic photographer. He has the ability to combine your desires with good taste! I am not much on when it comes to the right brain kinda thing but seem to know what I like when I see it! Doug has always been able to listen to me and then capture what it is I wanted. I have hired Doug for several Jobs including some Chicago Street/building scenes and a album following my a journey with my sailboat down the Chicago river to my winter storage yard. He also photographed my wedding and a family picture for Father's 80th Birthday. My wedding was done in black and white as I wanted but still managed to be modern or rather timeless! I could not have been happier. I cannot say enough good things about Doug's hired work or his work for art's sake!

Our experience with Doug was fantastic. He has a very laid-back and easygoing personality, which really comes through when he is shooting his photos. He likes to capture the moments as they happen, rather than setting up a staged photo shoot, which was exactly what we were looking for on our wedding day. It was almost like just having a friend tag along for the day! For the ceremony, he was sort of like a fly on the wall- you didn't really notice him, but he managed to capture everything that was going on. He really did a wonderful job, and the images are beautiful. He had them up on the website for people to view, even earlier than promised, and everyone has commented on what a great eye he has!

I don't think you will be able to find someone better than Doug. I am extremely pleased with his work up to the point that I am trying to convince my family to bring him down to Argentina to have our wedding photographed by him. He is just the kind of photographer you want: he is very receptive to your ideas, he pays attention to every detail (I remember having cupcake crumbs in my hair and he stopping to fix me!), he makes you feel comfortable during the process, and, most importantly, he takes awesome pictures without the need to recur to props, make up and wardrobe artists as wedding photographers do these days... he can make you look good even though Chicago's wind down by the shore is freezing you! (I know it by experience). He is a real photographer, he really knows what he is doing... not like those wedding photographers who can only shoot formal pictures. He has studied a lot and he teaches photography. What I liked the most about his style is that you don't feel overwhelmed by the camera, you can just let things unfold naturally and rest on his ability to capture the best moments of the day. This makes the experience much more pleasant because you get to have a great time without worrying someone is taking your pictures. And the result is unbelievable, I even cried when I saw my pics... they were so beautiful and breath taking. He had turned my vision of the shoot into something so dashing, that I could not believe my eyes. To those who are too shy for pics, he is the guy you want to go to, it is a real pleasure working with him, and you will be more than satisfied with the results. And to those who are more into pics, he is the guy for you also, I promise you won't regret having him take your pictures... on the contrary, there is no one better for the job than him. It was a pleasure working with Doug, and I hope you get to say that too.

Doug is not only a total professional who produced amazing shots of us, our friends, and our family that manage to capture spot on the feeling of the evening, but he is also a joy to work with. He was friendly, easy going, and put us at ease. Highly recommended!

If you want a great- easy going - hands off approach to wedding photography Doug is your guy. We loved his relaxed approach - and love his photos. He was also not in your face (like some wedding photographers) so you could enjoy the moment. He is a master with candid shots...we didn't do as much posed pictures -which is exactly what we wanted. He has an incredible artistic eye, so if you like beautiful artistic candids just let Doug do his thing and you are in for a treat. Definitely two thumbs up.

We cannot say enough good things about Doug. Months after the wedding we are still looking at and admiring the beautiful photos from Doug. His talent, artistic flair, and attention to detail are evident in every single photo. We cannot imagine having had anyone else photograph our wedding and we highly recommend him!

Doug is absolutely amazing. I would recommend him to anyone for any occasion. He fit right in with my family and made everyone feel so comfortable and at ease. Not only does he have a great, easy going personality, he captures the most beautiful, spontaneous moments on film and was simply wonderful to work with. I couldn't imagine anyone doing a better job.

Doug was great to work with and we are so happy with how the pictures turned out. Doug was very accomodating and as he said, he played the background allowing the wedding to unfold and capturing the moments naturally. All the while including the "must have" shots that we requested. We highly recommend Doug!

Doug was a fantastic photographer for our wedding. He has an incredibly good artistic eye, and is very unobtrusive when photographing. He is also a very sweet person, and is a lovely addition as a guest to a party.
