LGBTQ WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

ME AND MY TEAM capture
love in all it's capacities

My name is Ezlan and I'm a nonbinary wedding photographer based in Chicago. I'm someone with a big heart and a larger passion for capturing love. As a member of the LGBTQIA community, I'm very touched by the social cultural right of marriage and cultural traditions involved in wedding days.

I found wedding photography twelve years ago when my high school social worker took a chance on hiring me to shoot her daughters wedding. From there I've worked alongside a number of reputable wedding photographers to create the business I have today. 

The thing that differentiates me from other businesses is my policy on community giving and charity towards those less fortunate. With every full rate collection purchased, a portion of your purchase goes towards charity to a local non-profit or a fund designed to provide coverage for anyone enduring extreme oppressive circumstances preventing them from accessing adequate photography during their transition in life. 



  





HOW WE APPROACH PHOTOGRAPHY

Fly on the wall is my goal for the best documentary moments. Blending in with the crowd is an art I've mastered after nearly eleven years in this industry. All my team is trained in quiet and uninterrupted coverage. Our approach to wedding photography has been refined for the best level of comfort for all involved. No awkward posing, no forced smiles, and lots of breaks are in order for us to create real artwork.

Our best shots are the ones that capture bold expressions, intimate moments, and quiet emotions. 

We arrive at these things throughout your entire day if we let things unfold naturally. But we do need to plan together. It takes collaboration on your part and artistic freedom on mine to create the photographs you see in mine or my associates portfolio.

 Where are you located? 
Chicago but my commonly traveled locations are Denver, Portland, and NYC.

How far do you travel?

My team and I are willing to travel anywhere with electricity to charge our batteries, working showers, wifi and a comfy bed. I'm not made for super rugged travel but anywhere within easy public access is game for us!

Can you tell me more about your engagement sessions?
Of course! I have found them vital for my clients comfort levels on their day of celebration. There are a few options for engagement sessions depending on your needs.  You may learn more about engagement sessions by clicking here.

How long have you been doing this? Why do you do this?
Twelve years and counting! Nearly 200+ weddings later and I am truly in love with photography. It has been and always will be a part of who I am. I am naturally drawn to documenting love, emotions, family, and cultural traditions.  

How much is it to hire you?
My starting rate for six hours of coverage and an engagement session is $4250 with me as your photographer and additional hours of coverage are $750 each. Our associate team starts at $3250 per six hours of coverage. We are all available for travel. Sliding scale pricing is available for anyone without wealth or class privilege. Priority is given to those with multiple intersections of oppression.

Do you have any associate photographers?
Yes! I am currently building and training a small team of qualified professionals to take over the weddings I'm not available for this season. 

I don't really see myself in your portfolio, what are you doing to diversify and represent all couples?
While I've photographed all different types of weddings in my twelve year career, I have room to grow in terms of connecting with Black, Brown, Indigenous, and Asian folks getting married in my community. I am offering complimentary session credit to anyone within these communities who consider me for their wedding celebrations.
