  • Sam and Katie are so kind, caring and patient. First of all Katie and Sam are genuinely good people who truly care about their clients, we instantly gained a friendship across the country just through talking to Katie and Sam throughout our day during and between all the amazing shots they captured. Both Sam and Katie display such a calming presence that made my husband and I so relaxed and comfortable during hours of photos and video footage being captured. Katie told me something very important on my wedding day that I will never forget for the rest of my life. She said “don’t be sorry, this is your day! ”--- after I apologized for the hundredth time that day for something silly, like needing another minute to collect myself before leaving the hotel room for my soon-to- be husband to see me for the very first time as his soon-to-be wife. We stumbled upon Sam and Katie by chance and like Katie said in our original email “ I’m so happy the stars aligned and we will be able to... Read more

  • Katie and Sam were absolutely wonderful to work with and so kind! They shot our wedding video in Puerto Rico and were such a blast. Their approach is very fun and energetic. As two people who don’t typically like to be in front of the camera, Sam made us feel incredibly comfortable and at ease. They have a great eye and were able to capture many special moments. We were so impressed with how fast the turnaround time was for our sneak-peak video. The pair had it back to us within just a couple days! We can’t recommend Windy City Productions enough. Thank you so much, Katie and Sam!

  • Katie and Sam were so kind and made the experience so effortless before and during our wedding day in Costa Rica. We had a small wedding and they were great at making everyone feel comfortable and act natural throughout the day. I'm so grateful and it was so special to have our wedding day recorded in such a beautiful and meaningful way. Thank you Katie and Sam!

  • Katie and her team at Windy City Production did our photography and videography for our 200 person wedding. I cannot recommend them enough- every detail was captured beautifully. Katie is so friendly and personable, she makes you feel like a close friend. She met with us to find out our wedding vision, was able to help us out with a schedule and plan of action for the day of (I'm not someone who knows a lot about weddings or how things should go) and she and her team executed that plan totally. The team was everywhere to capture every detail, but also not obtrusive. Looking at all of our photos, there is not one detail that was missed. Every guest raved about how excellent our photographers were. AND THE VIDEO. The most perfect thing. We have access to all the raw video from our wedding but they also edited a cinematic version complete with my mother-in-law's reading during our ceremony as part of the audio. Amazing, amazing, amazing. So happy!!!

  • Sam completely blew us away! He just does his job so well. He MAKES moments happen by pulling you aside with not only your groom but also with all the other behind-the-scenes people like your mom, your sister, etc. He really gets you to come back to the moment and BE PRESENT with those around you amidst the chaos. Like everyone says, your wedding day is a blur and I cannot tell you how thankful I am for what he did. Those are the moments I remember. And, of course, his day-of edit was priceless. I felt like our entire reception was crying (even some of my husband's ex-rugby teammates!!!). Our guests continued to talk about the video into the next day and a week later I am still getting texts asking when I will be able to share it. It was THAT good, I'm telling you...(and it was not because we do well in front of a camera - quite the opposite actually)! I would recommend Sam whole-heartedly and without reservation. Thank you so much, Sam!

  • Sam and Katie are amazing! We had Sam as our videographer for our wedding back in July at The Brix on the Fox and his wife Katie did all of the editing for the video and we could not be more happy with how it turned out! Throughout the entire process, they made sure they knew exactly what type of video we were going for and they were affordable compared to many other videographers that I priced out, so ultimately it was a win-win! The day of our wedding, Sam was punctual, easy to talk to and pretty much ran the whole show! Our video would not have turned out nearly as good if it wasn't for his creative ideas and ways of getting us to come out of our shells! He even surprised us before our first dance with a same day teaser and shocked everybody there! We received so many compliments from our family and friends about how amazing it turned out and how they couldn't believe how fast he put it all together ! They also have a 2 week turnaround time and emailed us 13 days after our wedding ... Read more

  • Windy City Productions, and especially our videographer Katie should be a first choice for your wedding video needs! We found Katie through reviews and recommendations -- after talking with her on the phone, we knew she was the perfect choice. Katie was able to take a variety of personal videos throughout the day -- from preparation through to dancing. The video process was simple and unobtrusive, exactly what you need on your wedding day. Additionally, she was able to have different shoot methods, particularly drone footage, to capture unique shots for the day. The final video product was professional, perfect, and easy to view. Katie provided clear information on how to download and access the video for the future, even for the less tech savvy viewers. If adding video to your wedding day, Katie is a fantastic option!

  • If I could give more than five stars I would. A few years back I saw the video and pictures that Windy City Productions captured of a friends sisters wedding and fell in love with their work. When it came time to plan our own wedding I immediately wanted to sit down with them to see what more of their work looked like. As soon as we met with Katie I was so excited (and not just because she had her fur babies with her in the office that day, that was just a huge plus). Their work speaks for itself. We got married on May 3 of this year. Katie was our lead photographer and she had a second shooter with her as well as a videographer. The day was seamless. From the moment they arrived they were quick, professional, and so easy and fun to work with. I knew our pictures and video were going to be extradorinaiy just by the amount of work and heart they put into each shot that day. I'm pretty sure my husband wanted to kill me because I kept talking about how excited I was to see their work when... Read more

  • I have been over the moon about my experience with Windy City Productions. They made my day SO special and were so helpful every step of the way. They ran the show and I am so happy I booked with them. They were so sweet and kind all day and night. I got my pictures and videos back so quickly and I still can't stop looking at them! They did an amazing job! They exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to have these special memories from their wedding day!

  • Believe me when I say there is NO ONE ELSE out there who you would want to capture your wedding day other than WCP! When it came to planning our wedding, my husband and I agreed that the most important thing was having phenomenal pictures and a beautiful video so that we could relive our NYE wedding for years to come. Katie and I connected from our initial phone consultation and the rest is history! Sal and Natalie were our wedding photographers and a 5 Star review does not even begin to explain how happy we were with their attention to detail, guidance, professionalism, and friendship. We had our photos and video before we were even back from our honeymoon! I found that a two week turnaround is unheard of, so the fact that WCP promises your photos that quick was definitely a huge selling point for us. I know that there are hundreds of companies out there, but no one can compare to Windy City Production. We are so lucky to have found them and can confidently say hiring WCP was the b... Read more

  • We had the pleasure of working with Sal and Kathy for our wedding on November 3, 2018. They both were extremely professional and handled us and our insane wedding party with ease and didn’t bat an eye when I was over an hour late for our first look. I spoke with Katie directly for the 11 months leading up to our wedding and she was extremely responsive and answrred all of our questions. We knew we picked the right company to go with! Even after the wedding they continued the responsiveness and we were at ease knowing we would have our fully edited video and photos within 2 weeks of our wedding which was unheard of! And we did! Within 2 weeks we had our video and all of our photos not only on a google drive but our video was printed on a dvd! All of our family and friends cannot believe how quick we received everything and how amazing our video is! They were able to capture every moment and we will have the most amazing memories for the rest of our lives thanks to them! Highly highly ... Read more

  • Katie was amazing the whole day and event did some MCing, which was not in her job description. She came with us on the party bus and got some good pictures! She helped keep things lively, but also made it personal and supportive for me-the bride! I loved working with her! The pictures turned out wonderful!

  • Katie was our photographer the day of our wedding and she was absolutely wonderful.  She was incredibly enthusiastic and made everyone feel so comfortable throughout the entire day.  After dinner, she surprised us with a slideshow that she put together of photos that were taken earlier in the day and put it to a song that we wanted played during dinner.  It was the best surprise and we were so touched.  Our pictures turned out beautiful, it will be so hard to decide which photos to put into an album! We are still getting compliments from our family and friends on how wonderful Katie was and how amazing our photos turned out.   We hope to have a shoot with Katie in the future!

  • I cannot say enough good things about Katie and Sam. Without much input from us, they were able to capture all the moments that we wanted and include all the friends and family members that we hoped for. They brought the right energy to our wedding and we will be recommending them to our friends. Their quick turnaround is a testament to how hard they work!

  • I booked Katie through Windy City Productions and could not have ASKED for a better photographer!! She was bubbly, fun, and seemed to be everywhere at once!!

Lol WCP has amazing communication, are fun, supportive, work hard, and are overall a great company!!! I would recommend them 110% for any photo or video work!!!! I couldn’t have been happier!!!!
