Chicago wedding photographer Jason Brown blends both documentary wedding photojournalism,  and contemporary portraiture, to give his couples unique, moment driven images of their event. Shaped by years of experience as a news photojournalist, his storytelling photographs allow his clients to relive their wedding day for years to come.  


One of the amazing benefits of photographing weddings is meeting new couples, and understanding them on a personal level.  Jason truly enjoys getting to know his clients, embracing their individuality, and looks capture their event in a way that is both beautiful and meaningful.  All the while he maintains a collaborative, yet unobtrusive environment, where the bride & groom can simply enjoy themselves and have fun!
