Kelsey & Zack
When we began planning our wedding - the thing we were most excited about (and the most afraid of) was booking a photographer. We knew we had to have the right person. Neither of us are drawn to being photographed in our everyday life, and I was worried I would feel uncomfortable all day. When we sat down with Lisa, all of those fears melted away. Her incredible eye is eclipsed only by her wonderful personality. Not only did she help us make a plan for a most wonderful wedding day - despite torrential rain and blowing wind - she made our guests feel welcomed and beautiful through her lens. We weren't surprised by how absolutely incredible her photos were when we received them, be we were taken aback by how exquisitely she captured the adventure. We absolutely relive the experience each time we look at them. Lisa is a truly unique photographer - intuitive, creative, outgoing and thoughtful. We'll always be grateful for the role she played in making the celebration of our marriage feel completely perfect.

Lisa and her team are truly amazing to work with! One of my best friends hired Lisa to photograph her wedding and after seeing what a true professional she is, I knew I would want to book her the second I got engaged. Hiring Lisa for my wedding felt like hiring a friend I've known forever. She always stayed positive about everything and had amazing suggestions to create the most natural, beautiful photos on our wedding day! Throughout the big day she was my go-to-girl for everything - even when I needed something I left in my hotel room, she had her assistant run and grab it for me right away. It's very clear Lisa loves what she does and really does whatever it takes to make the bride and groom feel comfortable and happy. My husband and I could not have been more pleased with Lisa and will always look back on our photos with the most wonderful memories from our special day. Thank you Lisa for everything you've done for us! We are so grateful and will never forget these special moments because of you!

"Thank you to Lisa (and Sam) for their superb work! We are both amazed by our wedding photos. Every time I find myself a bit distracted I flip through the photos on my computer and am able to relive the festivities of the weekend. You were both so professional and discreet and captured many small moments among family and friends. You allowed me to guide and make some decisions, but when I needed help making decisions you'd step in and execute. You were flexible, calm, and caring - making it such a pleasure to work with you!

"Hands down, hiring Lisa was the best decision we made for our wedding. We had a dreary wedding day, but the pictures capture such a beautiful light that you would never know it had rained all day. I never noticed her during our ceremony, yet she captured intimate, unexpected moments. She was sensitive to our complicated family dynamics in group shots and I am so happy to have fantastic pictures with all our friends and family. The album we ordered from her has become an instant family heirloom."

Sara & Andy
"From our very first meeting, we knew that Lisa had to be our wedding photographer! She was upbeat, friendly, professional, and eager to learn about us as a couple so that she could perfectly capture us on our big day. To say she did just that is an understatement! Lisa really made us feel at ease all day and was such a joy to work with. She captured all the details and subtle moments of our wedding day and we will cherish the photos forever!"

Andrew & Annie
"We met with a lot of photographers, but once we met Lisa there was no doubt who we would have photograph our wedding. She is so fun and creative, and our pictures looked stunning! We didn't think anyone could capture so much joy in photographs, but that's exactly what Lisa did. She also listened to what was important to us to make sure those highlights were all captured on film, while successfully catching all the great moments we weren't anticipating. Easily our best choice of the entire wedding. And on top of all that, she even met us impromptu on a snowy Chicago day for our engagement photos! We will always treasure our wedding photos, and we hope to work with Lisa again!"

Need a professional, organized, creative, AMAZING photographer? Look no further than the all encompassing Lisa Diederich. I was lucky enough to cross paths with Lisa at the Martha Stewart Wedding Party back in the fall of 2014 when I was looking to book someone for our wedding. It turns out that we had known each other from our home town of Crown Point, IN 10+ years prior. That immediate connection paired with her amazing portfolio of work made me immediately comfortable in signing with her. And boy are we glad we did! From our lovely engagement photoshoot in our neighborhood, to organizing the "flow" of our wedding day (above and beyond just the photo portion), to her incredibly calm demeanor on our big day helping to organize a 20 person wedding party (sorry Lisa) to the final product...she was amazing! Going above and beyond (literally almost getting hit by a car while trying to get the perfect shot of us crossing Michigan Ave) every step of the way. Thank you, Lisa! We love that we have the most amazing forever memories documented in the most beautiful way."

"From the moment we met Lisa, we knew she would be the perfect fit for our traditional Serbian wedding and we are so thankful that we chose her. Every breathtaking photo from our wedding day is bright, vibrant and shows the attention to detail and artistic approach that Lisa took. The album truly captures the love and happiness of everyone who shared the day with us. On what was arguably the hottest day of the year, Lisa demonstrated professionalism, patience and empathy throughout. I would strongly recommend Lisa to all friends, family and anyone desiring to capture life's most precious moments."

Katie & DJ
It’s hard to believe that it has been a year since our wedding. The only thing that moves faster than the first year is the actual day of the wedding. Looking back, the memories blur—you spend so much time preparing for the wedding/reception and when the day comes, emotions are high, adrenaline is pumping and time moves faster than you ever imagined possible. I am so thankful we hired Lisa to capture all the moments of this special day. She was so easy to work with and a true professional. The photos reflect a wonderful evening - she was in all the right places at the right times without even being noticed. She artistically caught all of the special moments not only between myself and my husband but also among our guests. The photos not only reflected our personal style and the ambiance of the event but also the love and happiness shared on that special day. Now, I look back at the photos and feel as though the wedding was just a day ago, not a year.

Lauren & Matt
It was so nice working with Lisa on our wedding day! We were beyond happy with the photos that she took of us :) She was incredibly accommodating with everything from setting meeting times, to making a customized schedule that worked with our plans for our wedding, as well as getting the pictures back to us so fast! She was great at taking the pictures that we asked her to take, but then went above and beyond taking such lovely "detail" pictures (flowers, tables, food, place settings, etc.) that are so appreciated. Lisa was also fantastic at organizing our large group (21 in our wedding party total) and keeping everyone on task so we could get everything done. Overall. Lisa was incredible to work with, and we highly recommend her!

Jenny & Aaron
Working with Lisa was easily one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! From our initial meeting to working with her to create an album, Lisa was professional, caring, fun and always listened to what we desired and what was important to us. She had great suggestions for locations, styling and putting both of us at ease throughout our wedding day. She always knew how to snap the perfect picture and capture moments that will last a lifetime. The pictures truly show great attention to detail and tell the story of our wedding day.
